Dolly (Rochill Dolly)

  • Date Received:  December 9, 2023
  • Birth date:  November 6, 2021
  • History:   Dolly came to TAGS from Greyhounds as Pets, New South Wales, Australia.  She arrived in the U.S. on December 8, 2023 after a 15-hour flight from Sydney, spent the night in a pet hotel and a TAGS volunteer picked her up on December 9, 2023.  She has been completely vetted.   Her dam is  Boscona  and her sire is Bewildering.   According to Greyhound-Data, poor girl only had one race (she must have been a very poor racer).
    The handlers in Australia said  she is keen to learn and is very affectionate.  She is excitable outside and loves to play in the yard.    Meeting new people is a special occasion to Dolly.
    This girl loves life and is ready for her new adventure.  She is very petite and has beautiful markings (dusting of white on one side of her face, white strip from chin to mid-tummy, white toes and white tip on her tail).  She also has “mule ears” (both standing straight up).  She definitely has a farm coat, which she has begun to lose. 
    Dolly had no trouble figuring out a dog bed (within the first few minutes of being in her foster home) and discovering toys. 
    Dolly got into the vehicle by herself and lay on the back seat all the way from the pet hotel to her foster home. 
    It’s too soon to know much about her but she is friendly, affectionate and social and did well for the first 24 hours.  We will post more as her adjustment progresses.

December 6, 2023 update:  On January 6, 2024, Dolly visited the home of two resident Greyhounds and two resident cats. Dolly, being Dolly, was excited to see the cat (mule ears on alert) but she only wanted to see what it was.  As long as the cat was stationary, Dolly was content to look around to see what else was there; but when the cat ran, Dolly thought it might be an opportunity to play.  The cat seemed to be OK with Dolly near and sat on the sofa and let Dolly have a good, close sniff.  Dolly was not fixated on the cat and her attention could be diverted. Dolly will need to be supervised and corrected around a cat for a while until she learns that it is not a toy (which will be a disappointment to her since she loves to play). 


December 9, 2023 update: Dolly came from Australia to TAGS for a life of retirement and to find her loving lifetime home.
