Hounds in our permanent foster program are older or have special needs. These hounds will spend the rest of their lives in a foster home with GPA Houston covering the cost of their care. If you want to help our permanent fosters, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund. Thank you for your support of these special hounds.
Bruce, M, 5 YO
Bruce is a very happy and jovial hound. He is one of the smartest greyhounds the kennelmaster has met in all the years he's been with GPAH. Bruce has resource guarding issues and thus did not do well in his prior homes. He now lives with other greys and chihuahuas and is doing wonderfully as his permanent foster home places strict boundaries and limitations on his behavior. Bruce is super food motivated, so his training is going very well. He has perfect house manners and loves ear scratches. With a constant routine and making him earn his food, space, love, affection, and articles of play, he is thriving. If you would like to donate toward Bruce's care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Cindy, F, 13 YO
Cindy Lou Who (Barts Wooohooo) was surrendered to GPA as her family could no longer keep her. In her foster home, she is doing fantastic with small dogs and children. Cindy does suffer from an eye malady and has a heart condition which is being monitored closely as her dental health needs to be taken care. Cindy, however, is a so loving and funny and is getting better and better every day. Her foster family just loves her and treats her like the queen she is. If you would like to donate toward Cindy's medical care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Elsa, F, 8.5 YO
Elsa was returned to GPAH through no fault of her own. She required orthopedic surgery and extensive medical treatment upon her return. While recovering from surgery in an experienced medical foster home, Elsa won over the hearts of not only her foster parents but also her two grey foster brothers; Elsa made it clear she's not leaving! What the princess wants, the princess gets! Elsa is a sweet, gentle senior tripod lady who will be spoiled and loved for the rest of her life! If you would like to donate toward Elsa's surgery expenses, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Emma, F, 5 YO
Emma (TMC's Ebonyanice) is a very young dog who suffers from a severe congenital heart condition. Emma is on daily medication to control her condition, and she is currently asymptomatic. But we are monitoring her closely. She is enjoying life in her permanent foster home. All expenses in caring for one of our permanent fosters are covered by our Greyt Wellness Fund. Lots of hugs and kisses come from the permanent foster parent! If you would like to donate toward Emma's medical care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Gritty, M, 11 YO
Gritty (Gritty’s Gamble) was surrendered to GPAH in 2017 due to a family member’s allergies plus an out-of-state move. He is a beautiful white boy with black patches and amazing black ticking. He loves to be with people and does well with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. Gritty is an extremely friendly and loving hound, but he does have a lot of anxiety when left alone. His foster parents are retired which is perfect for him as someone is with him almost all of the time. As he ages, Gritty is experiencing joint pain and is on daily medication to alleviate the pain. If you would like to donate toward Gritty’s care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Jolie, F, 10 YO
Jolie has been a permanent foster since 2016. She was a good racer, but her career came to an end due to a fracture. This, however, does not stop her from being silly. She was the official greeter at The Noble Center when long-time volunteers she knew came in. However, she does not like many men. She is an expert at roaching and tongue outs and has her foster dad wrapped around her paw! If you would like to donate toward Jolie's care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Trifecta, M, 4 YO
Trifecta (CBJ Trifecta - aka Tonopah) is an adventurous and playful fellow. Unfortunately, he may have suffered a head injury during his racing days and exhibits a disconnect between his brain and body. But he loves to please, and he does it well! His foster mom and dad are experts at caring for special needs pups, so Trifecta could not be in a better home. If you would like to donate toward Trifecta's medical care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Tucker, M, 7 YO
Tucker (TK Tucker) suffers from a severe heart condition. We are controlling it the best we can with medicines and a gentle and patient foster mom. Tucker just wants to be loved though sometimes his anxiety prevents him from enjoying everything. Slowly, Tucker has learned to enjoy his soft bed, quiet home, and loving mom. If you would like to donate toward Tucker's medical care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
Zoe, F, 12 YO
Zoe (RC Gumdrop) was returned due to no fault of her own. She may be a senior lady, but she still has lots of spunk! Zoe has recovered well from major dental surgery and will spend the rest of her life in a foster home where she can play with other greyhounds and get loads of love and attention from her humans! We all know that senior pups are the world's best kept secret, and Zoe is proof! If you would like to donate toward Zoe’s care, please donate to our Greyt Wellness Fund.
