More dogs looking for a forever home.

Hello, Merci is my name. Ive been told that I'm beautiful and I'm looking for my forever home. I'm wondering if you could be my soulmate. I just completed my racing career in Florida and it's time to settle down with my very own family. Let me tell you a little something about me. I'm 3.5 years old and I'm a lovely fawn colored girl. I look a little like a tiny deer. I love to play and I even have a few squeaky toys that I share with the other dogs that I live with. I live with a cat also. I will love you forever and be your constant friend. If you would like to meet me, please contact Greyheart Greyhound Rescue and Adoption at 866-438-4739. I'll be looking forward to meeting you, Love, Merci. (Greyhounds make great family pets!)
Hope is a beautiful Lab mix. She has a very sweet personality and just loves everyone she meets! Hope is in a foster home with other dogs and she loves to play. She rides well in the car and is a good girl out in public. Hope is completely housetrained and would love a home to call her own. Hope knows how to sit and she walks well on a leash. Her birthdate is 12-31-07. She is spayed and has age appropriate vaccines and heartworm test. She is available from Metro Area Animal Adoption Association. You can fill out an online adoption application or meet Hope at one of Metro's adoption events. More info is available on their website.
  Puppies. We're just 8 weeks old and we each need a permanent home of our own. They tell us we're really cute and they know we're smart (and cuddly too). Our patient family will show us about walking on a leash, being housebroken (hmmm...don't know what that is...yet!), playing with toys...and playing catch with our people. In return, we will love them forever. These puppies are available through the City of Detroit Animal Control. You can get more info by visiting the website or calling 313-224-7474.
