Earlier this summer I was at the park when this young man came walking by with this young Greyhound. I got to talking to him and he told me he had just adopted her from a place who had rescued Italian Greyhounds. She has never raced but was owned by someone else who had rescued her previously. He said she was in perfect health and was trying to put some weight on her. She wouldn’t really pose for a picture though.
Dedicated to those who care enough to adopt these unwanted dogs and cats. May God bless them for their loving kindness.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    Fantastic image. My Mom has had two rescue greyhounds. She said they were the greatest dogs. So grateful even for a walk on grass. Great shot ,hopefully others will adopt.

    Stunning image of this precious, gentle soul…it’s good to know that she is now being cared for as she deserves to be.

    Awww…this precious baby…I admire people that help animals and despise those who hurt them!!!
    Nice capture… :o)

  • Thank you Dawn, you and me both, I don’t know how anyone can be cruel to an animal. We just rescued our neighbor’s dog, a chihuahua that had to be tied outside after being inside and it broke my heart to see him. He wouldn’t make it through the winter so we talked them into letting us give it to my niece who has given him a happy home and he’s very spoiled now.

    My daughter and son-in-law are planning on adopting a greyhound from a rescue soon – I am so anxious to meet it. They are lovely dogs. Thanks for adding this.

  • Well, I pray all will be perfectly matched for a long future of love and companionship.

    Beautiful, but sad in a way, and happy she has a home, at the same time.

  • She did look sad in this picture, but she wasn’t abused that the current owner knew of, but some of these dogs are and that is very sad to think people can disregard an animal in any way. Thank you!
