All greyhounds that are offered for adoption in the photographs below have spent the necessary time in quarantine; their blood is tested, they are vaccinated, castrated or sterilized and have (usually) had their teeth cleaned. They have the chip, their European passport and all necessary documents; as validated below and witnessed by a valid and licensed veterinarian. The dogs are, unless mentioned otherwise, kind, affectionate, gentle and calm animals that can (usually) live together in easy harmony with other dogs and pets. Children are no problem except that they may not scare these gentle and sometimes timid dogs. If the dog has a specific story then you will be told; most of them have been "dumped" or brought to us by the "galguero’s" and since have proved themselves at the shelter. Some are found left behind at vacant houses or are tied up with a metal bow around the leg; left behind to die. Many of them carry the physical spurs of their past, which translates to old scars, but except for that, the dogs are in good health. Others among them have been mutilated. When you wish more information you can always call to the responsible of your region or take up contact with Greyhounds in Nood Belgium. The adoption fee is 350 € for members and adopters who are membre and 380 € for new adopters for whom the membership fee for the first year is included. The registration of your name in Belgium is included in the contribution. Thanks for your visit to our site; we appreciate your trust and support!
I would like to thank once more all the people who visit the “photo gallery” of the galgos for adoption, with the intention to give a dog a better life, and for their trust in GINB. Although I believe strongly in love at first sight and "coup de foudre" there are always people who are not touched by any of these two phenomena and they ask our help in choosing a dog. For these adopters the color or the gender is not important, their only aim is to save a Spanish greyhound from the misery by giving him a better life. To those people I address the following message and prayer. When for you the color and gender of the dog is not important at all I would like to draw your attention to the sad destiny of the black galgos. They just like the beige, the white, the multicoloured and brindle galgos have a past of violence and negligence. Just like their "coloured" sort they are not spared from beating and torture and despite the fact that they are as loyal and affectionate as the "others" they are always victim of their black fur and see their chances for adoption decrease. Again and again they see their friends, who are blessed with a more colourful coat, leaving and it is always them who are staying behind, even for years. For one or another dark reason most of the candidate adopters do not choose black dogs. Unfortunately because black is beautiful and in this case oh so sweet. For this reason, dear madam, dear sir, if you do not have a preference please give the "Black Beauties", a chance and you will be richly rewarded with eternal love and gratitude.
