Greyhound Discovered with Deceased Owner

Like nearly every dog, Dory was extremely attached to her beloved owner. So much so, in fact, that she stood by her owner’s body for nearly a month after they had passed away in their home. It is difficult to know what went through the nine year old retired racing greyhound’s mind during that time, to be certain. However, one thing is for certain: the senior dog now needs a good home after going through quite a troubling and devastating ordeal. Sadly, it took an entire month before anyone realized Dory’s owner had passed away and she was discovered still inside the home. But, when she was found, she was sent to the Harris County Animal Shelter to be cared for and she was very scared after all she had been through.

The shelter held Dory the dog for several days just in case someone from her owner’s family stepped forward to claim her, but unfortunately no one came. That is when she was transferred to the Greyhound Pets of America in Houston (GPA Houston) and put into a foster home as she waited for permanent adoption. Dory is expectedly a little stressed out about the situation, but she is surprisingly still quite healthy. She had lost quite a bit of weight, which meant gaining some weight was the first order of business in her foster home. It has taken some time, but she is finally starting to relax and enjoy being around her temporary family and some fellow dogs, too.

In typical greyhound fashion, Dory loves to sleep and can often be found lounging on the couch or relaxing in the sun on the deck of her foster home. She has begun to gain back some of that weight, too. The next big order of business is to find Dory a permanent home where she can be around other greyhounds and have a soft place to land.
