Onyx is a beautiful girl who found herself at Calgary Animal Services back in November, 2023.  NCGL reached out to the amazing staff there and offered to take her into our program if her owner didn’t come collect her and after lots of vetting of our Adoption group by CAS (which is awesome!) they determined that their sweet greyhound that they had fallen in love with, would have a fabulous chance at finding a forever home with our group!  CAS had indicated that they thought that Onyx was 7 years old but based on the lack of greying on her face, her energy level and behavior we feel she’s probably closer to 2-3 years of age.   Like a lot of greyhounds, she did have dental issues that CAS took care of and we’re thinking that’s maybe why they thought she as was older than we think she is.  Unfortunately there is no way to determine her exact age, but she’s sure full of spunk!  She has been with us learning the ropes since November and this is what her foster mom, who has told us constantly that she would keep her in a heartbeat if she was cat safe has to say about Onyx.

If you are looking for a beautiful loving soul that loves to cuddle with you while you binge watch your favorite show, sporting events or curling up with your favorite book.
I have fostered this love for just over two months and have helped her understand some house and walking rules. As long as you are consistent with her, she understands the rules quite well.

Onyx absolutely loves the following, not necessarily in this order:

Cuddling with you
Tennis or the right sized Chuck It Ball,
Food-besides her meals, cucumber, toast crusts, peanut butter, frozen fruit, cheese, bunny poo we find on our walks, ice cubes, anything that she thinks is yummy.
Onyx has a VERY high prey drive when she sees squirrels, rabbits, cats and dogs running in a field. She is NOT cat safe, but does well with my four greyhounds and Borzoi.
Onyx would do well in a home with an experienced sight hound owner that understands prey drive. She would also do well with another dog that enjoys some zoomies. Onyx is 2-3 years old and loves to enjoy play time with toys and a forever friend for zoomies and fun walks..

If you can give this beauty a safe place to land with lots of love this is your girl.

Onyx is NOT cat safe and we doubt that she’s going to be good with small dogs, a home with larger pets is a must for this sweet lady!

Onyx is being fostered in Calgary, Alberta. Please contact adopt@ncgl.ca to submit your application. 💕💕

We want to thank Calgary Animal Services for taking such good care of this girl, getting her fully vetted and trusting us to find a home for this beauty.
