I'll pass this along to the Canadian contacts I have. Cute pup! Thanks for posting him.

I hope they can get him out, there was a litter for sale before Christmas, I am betting this is one of them.

The area has a lot of Greyhound BYBs. They use them for hunting up there as well as backwoods racing. While it is difficult and usually expensive to get a Greyhound puppy in the US they are overflowing with them up there. They are a hard sell...most people go into Greyhounds wanting the adult traits and pups are like normal puppies with cat-like stubborness at high speeds (trust me! ). Hopefully my contact in that area can rally the troops and somebody can bail him out.

He looks like a very happy, naughty pup. I think that one is probably a lot of fun.

The Brandis (both of my contacts in that area are named Brandi) are calling and seeing if he is already moving to a group. If not they are going to try to grab him up.

Yay! Another reason there are a lot of them up here is because they use them to cross into other breeds to get Alaskan Huskys, which is what our shelters are over flowing with, talk about dogs that don't make good pets!
