Hi. Meet Sam... a Rescue Dog

Sam is a Greyhound, bred to run like the wind. His soul purpose in life was to make someone money. When he no longer won races, he was left behind in a cramped cage. His owner had no more use for him. He was discarded and left for someone else to deal with. Fortunately for Sam, (but sadly, not for countless others), he was rescued by the National Greyhound Adoption Program -

Through a series of events ... Brian & Marina (my nephew and his wife) welcomed Sam into their home and lives. He is one of the sweetest, most gentle dogs I've ever met.

Now Sam has a huge backyard that he takes full advantage of, running just for the sheer pleasure of running. He knows he has a nice comfortable couch waiting for him to take a nap on when he's done.

If you are thinking about getting a pet, please consider your local shelter or breed specific rescue center. There are so many wonderful dogs and cats that need a loving home. Just look at Sam.
