Meet Amanda. She was a Whippet. Also a rescue from the Greyhound rescue place in Thomasville Ga. She was 4 and half when we got her. I did not know at the time she had a lot of health problems. More about that later. She also was a kennel dog. She had been bred to be shown and breed to make money for the kennel. They did show her and she won her Championship. The day she got her 15 points what it takes to be a champion they closed the van door on her. That was the end of her. They had her spayed and started to try to find her a home.
I don't know how long they looked or what they did on her behalf.
I had lost Joker in summer of 91 and I missed him like you would not believe. So in September 91 we went to Ga. to see if they had a dog that would replace Joe. I fell in love at 1st sight.We brought her home about 10 days later..
Tiger loved her too at 1 st sight. It took a few days for Amanda to warm up to him. But they became as good of friends as Tiger and Joe were.
