Over 100 Hounds Find Their Couch

In the world of greyhound foster "parents", Chris & Mike Benedict are standouts. Over the past 11 years, they’ve helped more than 100 greyhounds find their forever couches.

alt In addition, says Chris, six greyhounds have raced straight into their hearts, their couches—and their beds.

"They're wonderful, sweet, gentle, and loving, and each one is a very special individual,” Chris said.  She describes their six special hounds like this:

Jack (racing name: Glo's Madman) was a fine racer, but he broke his leg on his 99th race at 3 1/2 years old. After his leg healed, he remained in the kennel as a pet because he was so loving. He walked into our home in July 2007. We knew immediately he was our heart- and-soul hound. Jack was an amazing 'ambassadog' who never met a stranger. He continued to be a greyt representative for CGA and the breed until his death last year at almost 13 years old.

Nishi, Chava, Angel, & Celeste were racing failures. They went a collective zero wins in 18 races, but they became champions of our hearts. Nishi is tremendous with children and everyone she meets at meet-n-greets, special events, and all social settings. Chava, Angel, & Celeste are homebodies. They enjoy staying out of the limelight and are very loving. They help every foster greyhound understand life in a home with a family.

altCamdon is our newest adoptee. He is a happy, social, goofy boy. He is only two years old and had just two races. But he was invaluable in helping me deal with the loss of my sister by comforting me and being a greyt companion while I drove to and from Michigan recently.

“Our lives have been improved and enriched by these six hounds that chose us and by every foster hound that entered our home,” said Chris. “Each one has taught us something new, and we look forward to fostering many more in the years to come!”

Please help CGA "Help the hounds in their race...to the couch!" by donating on Colorado Gives Day, Tue. December 8th.  You can even pre-schedule your donation ahead of time.
