Greyhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    In August 2013, when I lived in Uganda, I rescued this mother and the last of her litter from a near death situation. With proper love and medical care she and her pup have been wonderful companions to me. I call her 'Lucky'. She remains scarred from her experiences...she gets car sick and is generally afraid of strangers and long objects. She is an excellent watch dog and caught an intruder one night and had him cornered in the yard. She does not attack but she knows 'show me' to show you what she is barking about. She is an extremely fast runner and loves to run on command. She knows to heel, sit, down, come, run, and all gone. She ...

If there was an association that would train her to be a companion dog, she would fit in very well. She is unsuited to an aggressive guard duties. (Less)

    In August 2013, I rescued a mother and a pup who were beaten and starved for several months. the owner who complained that she did everything she could think of and the dogs won't die. The female had 4 pups and this was the last one. The mother was so weak she could not even sit up when being picked up. I named the mother 'Lucky' and the puppy 'Happy'. They are sharing their life with a pit bull and her human family in Uganda. I have returned to Atlanta. Both dogs have been trained to walk on a leash, sit, down, run, come and, go home. Lucky still caresses her pup often and may miss Happy if they are separated. Happy adapts to any ... (Read More)situation, loves car rides and swimming. He plays with dogs and cats including kittens as long as he can chase them. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Uganda
    Dogs can make good pets in Uganda if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Uganda Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal.
