Arrival Story:
I knew I wanted a greyhound and had for years...the time came when I could adopt one so I went to the Humane Society. I chose this route as the greyhounds that are with an adoption agency are usually being fostered, the ones at the Humane Society are not as lucky. Also, being in Florida, I knew our Humane Society almost always had greyhounds. Well, I showed up one Sunday in February of 2003 and asked if they had any greyhounds. "No" was the reply. Bummer! Oh well, I figured that I would take a look around and say hi to all the other dogs and just come back another time. As I headed out to the kennel, another lady spoke up and said "Yes we do have a greyhound! One that was returned". Well, it turns out that he was returned for not being good with kids. He was as they call shy greyhounds a "spook". Needless to say, I fell in love that day, and every day I just love him more and more. (Luckily my own son is grown so no issues with the not being good with kids). Adopting Bandit has changed my life, I am very involved in anti-racing advocacy now and volunteer on a regular basis. Bandit is a joy to have around and a real clown. Today Bandit is a totally different dog than the one I adopted that day, and there's one thing that made all the difference, simply LOVE.

Bandit's racing name was Lil' Sunday Time and thankfully he only raced for one season before heading off to retirement with me!
