  • Ben

    Ben came to us through our friends at the American Lurcher Project. Ben was raised to be a field trial dog, chasing the lure through bush and fields.  To be successful, a dog has to learn to avoid obstacles, while keeping the lure in sight.  And Ben did enjoy some success prior to retiring at 4 years of age.  So imagine our surprise when we found out that Ben was born blind! His foster home noticed that he could be a little clumsy - running into things.  That led us book and appointment to have him seen by an opthamologist vet.  He confirmed that not only was his sight limited - he had never had any sight.  Ben has Optic Nerve Colobamas in both eyes, an eye abnormality that occurs before birth.   The result is missing pieces of tissue in structures that form the eye.     For Ben, not seeing is NOT a handicap.  He is a happy, well-adjusted, outgoing boy who loves to spend time outdoors.  He is playful, and really does enjoy a good run around the yard. He does, however, need a canine buddy in his forever home - Ben has learned since birth to follow other…

    If you are considering adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please review the information provided below before submitting an application. Please review the information on the site regarding our adoption process. Note that as of September 1, 2018, NSGA will no longer place greyhounds and lurchers in homes with children under 3 years of age. 

    Our business is seasonal - we bring in dogs for adoption from April to October.  As the majority of our dogs do come from the states it is not safe to transport them through the winter months.  We are expecting a very limited number of dogs to arrive in September and October of 2018 and we currently have a wait list of families, approved for adoption and waiting on these two transports. We will have very few dogs available to place once we work through our list of current applicants. Although you may see new dogs posted on the website, those dogs will soon be meeting one of our families already approved for adoption and currently on our Wait List. 

    For any applications received after November 1, 2018  it is unlikely that we would be able to place a dog in your home before the spring of 2019.  We would not be doing the phone interviews and home visits until such time that a suitable dog is available.  We ask  that you respect the time commitment made by our volunteers to answer emails, make phone calls and complete home visits.  If you are not willing to wait for a suitable dog to be available - please don't submit  an application. 

    We also respect the time commitment made by other adoption groups and ask that if you are also working with another group, that you not submit an application to NSGA until such time as you have withdrawn it from the other group.

    We will only be hosting a very limited number of meet and greets for the remainder of 2018.

    The majority of our dogs come from the US and with the end of the driving season approaching, and families currently on a wait list for greyhounds, a number of planned meet and greets have been cancelled.  If you are considering adoption and want to spend some time with greyhounds to see if they are a good fit for you, please contact us via email and we will arrange for you to meet with one of our families.
