About Us
Carmen, the Pet of the Day
Name: Carmen
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Greyhound
Home: Maryland, USA
   C armen is a 4 year old retired Greyhound. Her racing name was "Nana Do Fancy". She now lives with us in Maryland.

    Carmen was forced to retire when she had a bad accident on the track in Florida where she raced and broke her right hock. Carmen came to us in May of '97.Her foot is pinned, wired and screwed back together and after several operations,she gets along just fine. She now races "for fun" in the backyard with her two "sisters" Gabrielle and Darriah, also rescued Greyhounds.

    These dogs make wonderful, loving pets. All it takes to make them happy is food on a regular basis, a soft pillow to sleep on and some love -- all of these things they are now getting for the first time in their lives.
