Such a heartwarming story - you can see the joy in Ivy's eyes now that she is happy. She is a beautiful girl, and thank you for giving her a wonderful home.

Ivy is a beautiful girl, and her gentleness and intelligence are reflected in her lovely eyes.

I just love the brindle coated dogs! Beautiful dogs, both of them! I have to commend you for adopting an older dog...some of them spend their whole lives in shelters! Just not right....people would save themselves so much hassle of raising a puppy and getting frustrated if they would do what you did! I am a foster mom, a pregnant mom was dropped off near my home and had her pups 48 hours later. All puppies were adopted out through the rescue I work with but momma is still here waiting. :( Really saddens you. And she is a black lab...the statistics for black labs being adopted after a year old is really bad! She may be looked at and evaluated to be a search and rescue dog as she has tremendous "ball drive" (i could play fetch with her for hours if I could keep my elbow from hurting...lol) I have taught her to hand me the ball, sit until it is thrown and she has buffed up so much from the starved mom she was. God bless you for rescueing an adult dog!

Both of your dogs are beautiful! So glad they get along well and that Ivy is learning how to enjoy life!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I loved the pictures of Willow last week and now the wonderful Ivy caught on film. She is beautiful! What a wonderful life these dogs must have. They are very lucky to have you (and you, them). She has the loveliest face (I have Italian Greyhounds and just love that long snout!!!). What a pretty girl she is. Enjoy her for many happy and healthy years to come.

Thank you for telling your wonderful story. Ivy is beautiful.

wldhrsesrydsagn - (I tried to PM you but the link didn't work) - what you do is much more difficult than what we did. To care for an animal, grow to love it, hope for it to be adopted, and then lose it - what an emotional rollercoaster. Thank God for you and those like you who can put aside their own feelings for the welfare of a dog in need. All fingers and toes crossed for your lab girl.

Beautiful, regal & proud are 3 perfect words to describe Ivy. You can see the trust & love she has for you in this picture. Thank you for rescuing her & giving her a chance to be happy & do what Greyhounds should be able to do, run for fun. Wishing you many, many more years of running for fun Ivy.

What a beautiful story. Ivy is so lucky to have found you! She looks really happy!

As much as I love seeing Ivy outside, being a free dog...I love this picture. All those years at the track, she never dreamed of sharing a big comfy bed with a person that would love her. Sweet dreams, Ivy...you're retired now. Life is good!

Great pictures, WillowsMom!

I remember Willow. Thanks for sharing Ivy. She's beautiful. It wouldn't let me pick a picture, but I love the one of her in bed taking it easy. You made a good choice. Love her brindle color. Hugs to both babies.

Just look at those attentive eyes. What a sweet doggie.

If ever I live in a place where they'd have room to run, I swear that I'm going to share it with greyhounds... :-D

That made me cry! I'm so glad that you rescued Ivy. She's beautiful.

SO GLAD SHE IS HAVING A FUN LIFE. :) 2 VERY COOL LOOKING DOGS! MILLIONS OF BISCUITS FOR BOTH.

What a happy, content pair!

We oohed and aahed over Willow, and now it is your turn Ivy, and you are truly a beautiful Greyhound. I had a rescued Greyhound who died at the age of 12 from cancer. Greyhounds are really very sweet, gentle dogs who love to be around families, and don't deserve the bad treatment they get from racers. . Hugs and kisses to Ivy and Willow.

This girl is absolutely stuning and very photogenic. I love the artful pictures and get a look at those beautiful eyes. Very soulful, indeed.
Thanks, for adopting this wonderful girl and many more happy times together. Miss Katie and I admire you and her both.:) Hugs and gentle leans to Ivy.

I picked this photo to echo the sentiments of sylvanbliss.How many of these sweet wonderful dogs must dream of the life you've so lovingly given to Ivy? Blessings on your whole family both furry and human!

Thank you! for adopting beautiful Ivy (and Willow, also). My heart is now full with joy knowing this beautiful animal now has a loving home and a great pal to play with. She will never again have a racing muzzel to scar her face. Both dogs are just beautiful and I hope they have many happy and healthy years with you :)

Thank you to all of you who commented on Ivy - I read each comment to her, and they made us all feel warm and fuzzy! It is great fun to have photos of your much-loved companion featured on such a great site... but the kind comments are such a wonderful bonus!

Thanks also to those of you who thanked us, but in fact we know you would all do the same if you felt you could also adopt and give a dog a great home. We were quite selfish in doing so - I can't think of many better moments in our lives that the trip home with a rescue dog. Hope you get to experience this joy sometime as well, if you haven't already. Meanwhile, hugs to you all, and your dear dogs!

Good on you for taking Ivy into your home. She is a lovely girl and can now enjoy freedom and wonderful love, and also the joy of having a beautiful sister like Willow to play with.

Ivy is lovely!!
My sister rescued an ex racing greyhound, Annie, and she is an adorable dog. It took a long time for her to settle though, a good year of reassurance and reintegration was needed.
they are such lovely dogs!

Good to see Ivy here. What a beauty. And what a great life for a dog!

Help! My toys are escaping! 11 biscuits!

What a sweet face this dog has! Seems like she and Willow live in fabulous surroundings, and their lives will be long and healthy because of it! I'm glad you has the heart to adopt her in her adult life. She has a wonderful playmate in Willow and great Pet Parents! God Bless you Ivy (and Willow), and your Pet Parents!

Thank you for sharing this story, and thank you for rescuing these two beautiful dog. Ivy seems amazingly sweet, and she's so lucky that kind people like you decided to give her a second chance at life. I appreicate people who rescue older dogs so much, because they do get passed over so often. This just moved me and I'm so glad Ivy got a second go at a happy existence with people who truly care.

She seems just wonderful, those thankful eyes say it all. And I love her coat. Greyhounds are so often mistreated and it's so sad--they are such a sweet breed. I'm very happy Ivy has you, and that you have her (and Willow). I find that rescued dogs end up being the best dogs because they, like you said, return the favour and the love a thousand times over. I wish you and Willow and Ivy all the joy, health and happiness in the world. God bless you.
