More Details

About Bluto

Bluto (Blu) is an initially shy, big mush. She's a retired racer, having run in only 5 races and won 0; she retired early due to a severe sprain/muscle tear. Very mellow, housebroken and leash trained, she always walks beside or behind you, occasionally pulls on leash only to stop to smell the roses, trees, grass, etc. As a former racer, she has a high prey drive and is interested in chasing squirrels, rabbits and cats, so must be on leash when outdoors. She likes meeting other dogs in the neighborhood and is friendly yet reserved with people. Naturally an introvert/submissive, she ADORES male dogs and especially puppies. She's always excited to go outside, right on Olive Oyl's heels for the morning walk, then enjoys napping all day. She loves belly rubs and sometimes gives kisses. No medications, healthy and eats a dry kibble grain free diet. Treats are allowed about twice a day. She is good about having her teeth brushed before bed time. Bluto eats twice daily, morning and night, from a raised feeder in the kitchen. Her diet is 2 cups per meal of Taste of the Wild Grain Free Pacific Ocean Salmon & Whitefish formula. She and Olive Oyl both eat the same food, Blu just eats 1/2 cup more per meal. Neither have any food aggression or dominance issues and are respectful of each other's space.

About Czar

Czar is a rescued Borzoi, having been pent up in a small pen by an overwhelmed breeder in early life, then purchased by another breeder and show dog enthusiast. He lived outdoors with a barn at most for shelter until January 2017 when he came to live with my greyhounds and I following the loss of our precious Saluki Princess. He filled our heart with new joy, cheer and purpose and was immediately grateful for his new warm home indoors. Happy, upbeat and amiable, he gravitates toward women and can be protective. He gives hugs every day to his thankful mom. :-)
