Additional Details:

Aria is a black oops puppy that came from an accidental breeding between two greyhounds. She is not tattooed and could never be registered to race since her parentage is unknown. She is good with cats and small dogs and is a very outgoing, happy go lucky, energetic, playful, puppy. She is pretty small but still may fill out a bit and put on more muscle. She is likely to be as tall already as she is going to get though by this age. Aria was placed in an adoptive home in Alabama shortly after she was weaned and they renamed her Karma. Recently her adoptive family decided to return her to the Birmingham Track Adoption Group that had originally placed her. By that time she was 10 months old and they decided she would do better with someone with more greyhound experience and they wanted to get a boxer puppy instead. All puppies take commitment and dedication to training. Eight months to a year is the most challenging time, with a large breed puppy. Behaviors that are cute in a tiny puppy may not be cute when the dog weighs over 50lbs. At that age you have a puppy brain and high energy in an large, adult-sized body with adult speed and strength. Lack of manners and training in the puppy phase will become a problem at that age. Karma was transported to us right away and came in as a special order for an adopter with greyhound experience who is also a dog trainer. Her new mom renamed her Saber and we expect this to be a great match for her.
