Adonis, when he first arrived, had been saved from a miserable life. Barbara Lefranc, President of the Le Bulletin Des Levriers (Bulletin of Sight Hounds) expresses the words Adonis would speak if he could, “Yes, it’s me, the companion you are waiting for. I’m doing well now. I’m going to gain weight and become handsome again. I’ll forget my past and eagerly devote myself to my favorite interest in life, making sure that you love me.”
Adonis was adopted in February and has gone to his new home where he will always be loved. Le Bulletin Des Levriers rescues dogs, especially greyhounds and other sight hounds, that are used in Spain for hunting. In partnership with Spanish rescue groups, they are saved from abusive situations, and are then brought to France where they are placed in loving, forever homes.

Note: This story and the photos are correct, but in the first version I had mistakenly used the name of a different dog. Adonis is his real name! (Kasper is a different rescued dog – he is okay too.) My apologies to Adonis, Kasper, and everyone. – Sharon St Joan
