A home for the holidays

Apollo has a home for the holidays. The 8-year-old fawn who landed at Friends of Greyhounds three weeks ago is with a Margate family giving him a chance to settle in.

I rode along with Michelle on Friday evening to deliver Apollo for a home trial with Debbie and Matt and their son, Jake. Apollo will be there for at least a few days to find out if he can get along with Shar Shar, a female hound who will be 7 on New Year's Day.

Debbie and Matt have a long history as canine parents. They had a couple of boxers before adopting Shar Shar, their first greyhound, from FoG a few years ago.

Apollo is the second FoG hound currently on a home trial. Kelly has been in Palmetto Bay for a couple of weeks. Michelle is confident that Kelly is in the home to stay, though he has not been officially adopted.

FoG welcomed a young Sunrise couple to the kennels earlier in the evening Friday who are considering adopting a greyhound for the first time. Michelle told me they were particularly interested in meeting Mercury and Fella, the two energetic 4-year-olds who came together from the Hialeah compound in August.
