THE DOGS WE TOOK BACK
Hayifa © de Caprona
Hayifa was in California when we heard from the
owner that she had had an accident and needed a kidney removed.
We could never locate the owner in any of the
hospitals and it seems the story was an invention.
A frightened puppy flew back to us.
She went on to win BOS at the largest specialty
for the breed in Lompoc 1999 under judge Bo Bengtson
and finished her Oval Racing Champion and her
Superior Gazehound Racing Champion title with us.
La'eb was picked up by Bernd at the owners place
in California and flew back with him.
While he was driving in San Francisco, Bernd
narrowly escaped death
when a driver on drugs slamed his van in the
back, while he was parked on the side searching for directions
and made him skid across several lanes of busy

Ibtsama Haifa Shi'Rayan and Negma
were picked up at Alan Segal's place in California
by Bernd and flew back to us with him.
Alan Segal was very helpful in solving the local
problems with these bitches' family.
Ibtsama had become IABCA Champion with her first
and dominated the field of lure coursing for
several years with us.
Mujiir © de Caprona
was driven back to us from Tennessee by the owner's
Mujiir needed physical and mental rehabilitation
to get back to his previous self.
With us, he became IABCA Champion, Gazehound
and is working now towards a field Champion title.
THE DOGS WE RE-HOMED
Bachir and Dania © Lehrman
Bachir could not deal with the conditions in
which he was kept by his first owner.
We asked that he be returned.
Bachir then went to live with the Lehrmans, his
second home was his paradise
that he shared many years with Dania Shi'Rayan.

was discovered together with 2 Italian Greyhounds
in their owner's home, one week after she had died.
She was relinquished to a local shelter, in spite
of our contract, with the 2 IGs by the owner's mother
and would have been put to sleep had not someone
contacted Alan Segal of South Bay Pure Bred Rescue in the area.
He was told "a Greyhound and 2 Whippets need
We were alerted by the breeder of the two IGs,
and were given Alan's phone number.
Because it was August, no plane would fly her
back because of the high temperatures,
and Alan developped a bond with her. In the end
she stayed in California
where she works with Janet as a Therapy Dog brightening
many people's lives.
Lathmah © Helm
was living with La'eb and was rehomed with a
wonderful loving family in Arizona.
She now shares her life with the Helms, their
child and Khafia Shi'Rayan.
Ghasak Shi'Rayan (Sheik)
Sheik was living in Florida with a couple who
But he developped over the years a terrible fright
of storms that nothing would control.
The owners made then the decision that it would
be better for Sheik to live in a place with calmer weather.
We would have gladly taken him back, had it not
been for the fact that we also live in a region
known for the violence of its storms and the
frequent tornado warnings we get each year.
Emily Danskin welcomed Sheik when he was driven
from Florida to Arizona by his owners
and with her help, he adjusted very well to his
