Foxy (Foxy Lady) got her name when she ran out in front of a car in her native Spain, and got hit (luckily not severely). The driver of the car initially thought she had hit a fox, and only discovered her mistake at the emergency vet's office, but the name stuck. Foxy is a firecracker - a smart, active, and playful Podenco girl. She gets along with humans of all kinds, as well as other dogs, and has yet to be cat-tested. Foxy is currently fostered in the Washington DC area, but is available for adoption throughout the US and Canada. Her adoption fee is $650, which covers her travel expenses to SHUG, spaying and other veterinary expenses.

 . Elle (Ellie Mae) .
Elle (aka Ellie Mae) is a two year old borzoi girl. She's very sweet and can be shy in new situations and then demandingly affectionate once she gets to know you. (Rub my belly!!)

 . Penny .
 . Penny .  . Penny .  . Penny .
Penny is an AKC (that means 'show', not racing) Greyhound lady, up for adoption due to her human's health problems. She is funny, quirky, attentive, sometimes shy, sweet, and just a little slow to warm up to men. Penny could easily be bullied by more boisterous dogs (though is fine within her own pack), so would probably enjoy more dignified canine company. Penny gets along with children (less boisterous ones preferred), other dogs, and cats. Penny will not be placed as an only dog. Penny is currently fostered in Maryland, and is available for adoption throughout the US and Canada. Her adoption fee is $300, which covers her travel expenses to SHUG, as well as veterinary care.
