Faith just arrived with her sister Paisley from the Running to Stand Still Farm in Florida. She raced just 4 races at Palm Beach in Florida before all the tracks in Florida closed for good at the end of 2020. She was just getting her career started but finished toward the back of the pack in the few races she did have so probably would not have had a long career anyway. Faith raced at 61lbs and just turned 2 on January 16th. Some of our volunteers visited the farm she was raised on so have photos of her taken throughout her life. Be sure to click on her other photos to see them. Her sire is Quick Reply and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Faith did not pass her cat test so needs a home with no kitties. More as we get to know her.

Irvin is one of the very last retired racers we will be getting from Florida. The majority of the racetracks in the country were in Florida and have been gradually closing down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end Greyhound Racing in the state. Derby Lane was where Irvin raced and was one of the last two tracks to remain open, closing on December 27th. The other track closed down on December 31st.  Irvin only raced 8 races for D'Arcy Kennels, and didn't win any of them. He raced at 71lbs so is a smaller guy. He won't turn 2 until March 13th. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He is arriving with 2 of his littermates Harry Bosch and Reggie Woo. Irvin was way too interested in the cat to pass his cat test. He was so interested in chasing the cat, that he wouldn't back off and didn't even seem to notice when the cat slapped him for getting too close. He definitely needs a home with no kitties. He did great when meeting a small dog after a bit of sniffing to figure out what it was. He is a friendly and happy little guy that seems to love people. He also like the kids that he met. A friend was photographing races and managed to catch Irvin in one of his last races. Be sure to check out his other pictures to see them.

Although she passed her initial cat test when she arrived, her previous owner says she is very high prey drive and couldn't be around small dogs or cats at the kennel. She really feels like she needs a home with no small animals. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Pasour family of Charlotte NC, 1.26.21

Fly came to us originally from the Daytona Beach Race Track in FL in 2016 as a 2 year old. She also raced 4 of her 21 races at Wheeling Downs in WV. She never was really fast, so she was retired young. Fly is now a 6 year old 61lb fawn female. Her sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen and her dam is Kiowa WW Kitty. She is a calm girl that is good on leash. She can be just a little timid in new situations. She passed her cat test easily because she was afraid of the cat. So she should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. She did get excited and try to chase an outside neighborhood cat, but we tell all adopters that no greyhound should be outside with ANY cat no matter how safe they are indoors. Inside and outside prey drive is very different especially with an unknown cat. Fly was adopted 10/29/16 and renamed Luca. Although she was used to being around and being handled by the older kids of her trainer at the track, she hasn't been comfortable since a new baby hit toddler stage and started falling on her and crawling up to her. Her owners asked us to help them re-home her in a home without small children. They said she is the sweetest most loving dog ever and it is really hard for them to let her go.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hummer family of Waynesville NC, 1/24/21

Eraser just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. She only raced 22 races there. She got up to the top A level fast but then lost interest in racing and came in last in her last 6 races. So she was retired young. Eraser just turned 2 on August 8th and raced at 60lbs. She has been in a home with a small white Italian Greyhound and showed no interest in chasing him. She does mistake some tiny furry dogs for bunnies at a distance, so needs a careful intro. Once she is able to sniff and realizes they are actually dogs she seems to be OK. Eraser is a very happy, friendly girl. She is very sure of herself and un-phased by all the recent changes in her life. She crates calmly and quietly and is playful and fun in short spurts. A really nice personality. Eraser's foster family picked her out at the track and was hoping to keep her if she did well in their home. Eraser is a pretty confident girl and they already have a confident female that doesn't really like her, so they have decided to let her go to another adoptive home after having her a few weeks. Since Eraser is confident she may do best in a home with other male dogs or a more submissive female that is OK with someone else being in charge. Eraser has shown signs of having some separation anxiety, so probably does need a home with other dogs, so she isn't completely alone. Eraser has had mixed results with cats wanting to chase some of them but being Ok at other times, so we have concluded that she really needs a home without kitties.

She is affectionate, intelligent, comes to you when she needs to go outside to potty and has had no accidents in the house at all. She gets along well with the other greyhound in the house and likes to play with toys. Show Time walks beautifully on leash and the only time she pulls is when she sees another dog. She loves other dogs and gets very excited wanting to meet them. She has not been tested with cats or small dogs yet. She is working on mastering the steps in her foster home.

So she is being sent to us and is looking for a home with no kitties. Peony raced at 60lbs. She is a very young girl that won't turn 2 until May 6th. Her sire is Seldom Told and her dam is JW Snoopy. She is a little timid and needs to gain some confidence. A friend was photographing some of the last races in Florida and captured one of Peony's last races.

Goldie came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She only raced eight races there and won two of them. She raced at 66lbs and turned 2 on April 11th. Goldie is a beautiful red girl. Her sire is P's Gibbs and her dam is Pat C Goldendrop. Goldie was vetted with our vet in Augusta GA. She is a doggy genius and is one of the smartest greyhounds her foster mom has had. She can be a Houdini and has gotten out of regular metal crates but did fine in the guillotine type crates where the door slides up or the plastic vari kennel style airline crates. She has figured out how to take her muzzle off too. She can easily clear a baby gate to get to someone on the other side. Goldie is very food motivated and will do anything for a treat, so her foster mom taught her to sit and down in just a few days. She seems like a confident, happy girl, but she does have a submissive side and will get very low to the ground if she thinks she did something wrong. Goldie is very curious about everything and doesn't seem to be timid or phased by much of anything. Since she is so happy, confident and friendly she would probably make an excellent therapy dog. Although she sleeps quietly in the crate all night, she does sometimes complain about being in the kennel so she may not be the best choice for apartment living. Goldie is such a smart dog that she would be a great dog for someone wanting to do trick training, agility or obedience. She may make a great therapy dog too. Goldie is a higher energy girl still at 2 years old so would be great for someone wanting a dog for longer walks or hikes. She has big beautiful eyes that will be hard to resist. Goldie passed her initial cat and small dog tests with some interest, but seemed easy to distract and responded well to correction. We thought she would be trainable with cats and small dogs and placed her in a home with them. She would do OK with them one day and then be too interested in them the next so she is looking for a home with no cats or small dogs now.

Ritzy just arrived from the Blanchard kennel at the Wheeling WV race track. She raced a total of 56 races there and at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. Ritzy was good getting up to the top AA level at one of the top tracks in the country. She even competed in one Stakes race. Her last win was in early September though and she gradually started dropping levels. When her hock seemed sore after a race in December, they decided to go ahead and retired her. The soreness in her hock only lasted a few days and there is not even a limp now. Ritzy is a tall girl that raced at 66lbs. She will turn 3 on February 20th. Her sire is Pat C Sabbath and her dam is Hurricane Riot. One of our volunteers adopted her grandmother Audacious when she retired. Ritzy is a sweet girl that just stares up at you with her huge brown eyes. She doesn't seem to have any space issues at all because she liked her trainer to curl up in her kennel with her and snuggle. She is friendly and wags. She seems a bit submissive greeting people and other dogs with a lowered head and tail. She can be whiny in her kennel, so may not be a good dog for apartment living. Ritzy has been great with the small white dog she was fostered with, she also passed her cat test with just some casual sniffing and didn't seem very interested at all. Her trainer reports that she got along good with the other dogs at the kennel and never caused any problems there. Her trainer said she was clean and didn't have accidents in the kennel either.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Robertson family of Columbia SC, 1.16.21

Bandit initially came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 80 races there. He raced at 71lbs so is a mid sized guy that just turned 3 on October 24th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is JS luck B A Lady. Bandit is a very relaxed guy that loves to snooze. He is very sweet but a little shy. It takes him little while to warm up, but he does. He isn't a real needy guy and is perfectly happy to just lay on a dog bed. Recently he has started sleeping on the couch and his mom's bed too. Bandit is a gorgeous, light fawn with a darker face. He is very curious about everything and isn't afraid to check things out on walks and will even go up to people sometimes on walks. Bandit was adopted in December of 2019 by a family with several small kids and several dogs. He did good there but tends to avoid the more crazy times of the day by going to another room. He would probably appreciate a quieter home with older kids or fewer small kids. His family just moved to a farm and Bandit just can't resist chasing chickens and their other outside livestock. So they made the difficult decision to rehome Bandit. He just needs a home without chickens or livestock that he may be tempted to chase and a quieter home where he can be more comfortable. Bandit has lived with indoor cats and is OK with adult cats that stand up for themselves indoors. He is too excitable around a new small kitten that runs and plays though, so would need a home with indoor confident adult cats only - no outdoor kitties. Bandit is fine with the other dogs of other breeds and sizes in his home. This sweet boy is already home acclimated and ready to be an incredible pet.

Reggie passed his cat test easily with only some curious sniffing and is doing good with the cats in his foster home. He was also good with a small dog he met. He can be a little vocal and barks sometimes when he sees or hears something outside so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. He is a friendly, happy guy that seems like he loves people. He put his head on the shoulder of the driver for much of the trip up from Florida. He liked the small kids he met too.

He does do fine with small dogs though. Vrod loves to play with toys and is very social and loving. He is so sweet that his first foster family planned to keep him if he had been able to live with their kitty.

He was pretty good getting up to the top A level there and winning. He was moved to Southland in Arkansas, a faster track with tougher competition.

He will turned 4 on December 20th. John passed his cat and small dog tests with just some initial curiosity, then lost interest quickly. He should be fine to live with either. He is a very happy friendly guy with a bounce in his step. His trainer says he is a total love bug. He was also called Johnny Boy at the kennel sometimes. John was adopted in March of 2020 and his name was changed to Boss. He is looking for a new home now because the female greyhound in his home never really liked having him there. His owners hoped she would gradually get better with him, but she bossed him around, bothered him trying to get him to play and wouldn't allow him to run in the yard, play with her toys or be around 'her' people. Boss would like a home as an only dog or with an older, calm dog that isn't bossy or overly playful. He does love to run in the yard, just a few laps. He plays with stuffed toys for a couple of minutes, then is done. He is wonderful with people, very loving and couldn't be any sweeter. His owner says he is the sweetest soul he has ever met and his foster mom agrees. It was a very hard, emotional decision for his owners to give him up. Boss liked the grandkids of his owners ages 3, 6 and 11 and has always been good with them.

Justin, the girl with the boy name, just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. She was vetted before coming to us by the track adoption kennels vet. Day raced 115 races starting out her career at Southland in Arkansas. From there she moved to Orlando and was a top A level racer there until they closed. Then she was moved to Orange Park to finish her career. She started slowing down but did manage to win her very last race at D level. Justin is a sweet girl that is very quiet and calm. She might be OK to live in an apartment because she is so quiet and good in her kennel. Justin was a little overwhelmed at first and needed about a week to really get comfortable. She has gotten very sweet and friendly once she was more relaxed. Justin can still be a little jumpy with fast movements or things that scare her. She eats well and seems very food motivated. Justin loves to go for walks. She was intimidated and a little afraid of the cat she met and has been great with the small white dog in her foster home. Justin just turned 4 on October 12th. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Under The Stars. When Justin arrived her muzzle said 'Day' on it so we were calling her that and she seemed to respond to that. Later we found out from a past trainer that she was called Justin since she was a small puppy so she appears to know both names.

Shane just arrived from the Running to Stand Still Farm in Florida. He raced only 10 maiden races at Derby Lane in FL and didn't win any of them. He got bumped in his last race in February of 2020 and had a minor muscle injury, so went back to the farm for some down time. Shane healed up completely long ago. Even though he would have been fine to return to racing, racing is ending in Florida at the end of this year, so Shane's owner decided to just retire him permanently rather than return him to racing for just a few months. Shane is a very special dog whose racing name was given to him in honor of his owner's late husband. He turned 2 on May 14th. Shane's sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and his dam is Be Limitless. Shane raced at 73lbs but currently weighs 76. He is personality plus. Shane will just lean against you for love and his whole body wags when he gets excited. When he gets excited, he bounces and sometimes tries to give hugs. He is very food motivated so may be a great guy for someone that wants to do trick or obedience training. Shane paid very little attention to the cat when he met it and also did great with a small white dog he is fostered with, so should be able to live with either. He loves everyone he meets including the small kids in his foster home. Shane does pull on leash excitedly going to check out new people and things, we are working on that. He crates very quietly so may do well for apartment or townhouse living. Shane was a marker when he first arrived, but is doing good on his potty training in his foster home now. He is likely to need close supervision when acclimating to a new home. Shane has been perfectly behaved with the male and female dogs in his foster home. His racing owner reported that he was a confident guy that could be a bit bossy with some of the other male greyhounds he was turned out with. His neuter may have helped with that, because we have seen no bossiness and have been surprised at how tolerant he has been with a bossy, annoying, large puppy in his foster home. Shane has the best personality and seems like a fun, loving dog that will make a wonderful, devoted pet for some lucky family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Feinman family of Lexington SC, 12.19.20

Aspen just arrived from the Running to Stand Still Farm in Florida. Due to the Florida tracks closing she is not going to be able to race. She is young and just turned 1 year old on August 3rd. She was tattooed but never finished the registration process to get a racing name and has just been known as Aspen her entire life. Her sire is Makeshift and her dam is Lily Langtree. Since she never raced, we don't have a racing weight for her. She arrived with her littermate Lily. We can place the two girls together, but if placed together they have to be the only dogs in the family. Together, they gang up and bully other dogs according to their owner. They do better playing with other dogs when they are separated. Aspen is very friendly and happy girl. She is young and hasn't had the normal training that greyhounds get at the track. She needs work on her leash walking skills and manners. Aspen passed her cat test and small dog tests easily, so should do fine living with either. She is very young and playful so is going to want to play with any dog in the family. Because of the size difference, play should be discouraged between her and a small dog. Aspen will be vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin. Be sure to look at Aspen's photos to see some our volunteers took of her on the farm when she was 3 months old.

Blade came in from the Roban Farm in Florida. She never went to the race track and never raced. Her owner said she would rather play with the other dogs than chase the lure. She weighed in at 62lbs when she arrived. Blade passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. She is friendly and happy after she warms up, but she can be very timid at first. Her first trip off the farm where she was born was very stressful and overwhelming for her. She has warmed up to her foster family after a few days and has shown her playful silly side. She loves to run in the yard, but only for a short while and then she spends most of the day sleeping. Blade won't be 2 until November 1st. She has not had an accident, not chewed anything, no counter surfing, and has been quiet in the crate. She does not like staircases but has done OK on just 4 steps going down to a potty area. Blade never got an official racing name, but was tattooed at 3 months old. Her tattoos are 118B 73078. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is Lily Langtry. Blade was vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin. Blade was in a home with an elderly lady for a couple of months and was mostly good but pawed at her for attention and when she was playful. That was hard on her owners very fragile skin so she has made the decision to re-home her.

He was retired young and won't turn 2 until March 26th. Pop weighs 83lbs so he is an extra large male. His sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen and his dam is Braska Star. He has just been vetted at our vets in the Augusta area. Pop's foster mom says he is very chill and very loving. He passed his cat test at the track and showed no interest in the cats at the vets office either. He should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He gets along with the greyhounds in his foster home and has had no accidents in the house so far. He doesn't like stairs but can do the 3 coming into the house. He is quiet so could be an apartment dog if the apartment was on the ground floor. Even though he is a big guy, he is very good on leash and doesn't pull. He hasn't tried to get on the furniture in his foster home and has been very well behaved. He likes to be near people and will follow from room to room. Pops is very cute with big Groucho Marx black eyebrows. He travels well and loves to chase balls.

Kat came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. Her racing owner is one of our group's volunteers and she asked us to help her place Kat. Her owner recently broke her back and can't bring in a new dog into her home right now. Kat was not a good racer. Out of her 66 races she only won one race and came in 2nd in one. Kat raced at 66lbs and is very young. She turns 2 on November 15th. Kat is definitely not a Devil Kat and is a really timid shy girl that is very overwhelmed by being in a home for the first time and being away from her littermates and trainer at the track. She is going to take a bit to warm up to a new environment and people she doesn't know. Her new family will need to be patient with her as she warms up. She needs a quiet home and they should expect her to take a few weeks to warm up to them, if not longer. Her foster thinks she would do best with experienced greyhound owners that have worked with shy dogs before. Kat passed her small dog tests and did fine with the kids she met, but if placed with children she would need to be around calm, quiet, kids only because noisy toys and running and yelling would definitely scare her. Kat is a gorgeous fawn girl with golden eyes and lots of dark eyeliner. Just gorgeous!

White stockings, white chest, white spot on the back of his neck and a white blaze on his nose. Very flashy! Very sweet and friendly too. He passed his cat test without any interest and did fine with the small dog he met too. He is being fostered in a townhouse so may be OK for apartment or townhouse living. Adieu is a tiny guy, racing at just 64lbs. He will turn 3 on February 21st. Adieu loves toys and will choose to sleep in his crate on his back with his legs in the air in a position we call the greyhound 'roach'

She retired from Naples on April 22nd 2017. She wasn't a very good racer, racing most of her career at the lower D Level. Some of her littermates were superstars at the track, so when Cinnamon retired from racing, she went back to the farm to be a mom. They didn't end up actually breeding her due to racing ending in Florida at the end of this year. So she has just been living at the farm for a few years and is being sent to us to find an adoptive home now. Cinnamon raced at 68lbs and turned 6 on March 3.

Friday is a return that we were asked to assist with rehoming. He was originally adopted through God's Greyts in Florida but is located in our area now. Friday is a 72lb male that raced 48 races at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He was good, getting up to the top A level right before they closed permanently back in March. He was adopted then and has been living in a home with a lot of cats since then. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is WhiskeyBodacious. His whole litter was named for different Whiskeys. Friday turned 3 on February 27th. He is an energetic dog that will be a fun guy for a lucky family. Friday doesn't appear to have had any potty training, manners training or leash training yet, so just needs a family that has enough experience with dogs to teach him the basics and show him how he is supposed to act in a home. Although he hasn't shown any sign of food, space or any other type of aggression with our foster home, his previous owner said he did snap once, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no children.

Sherry is a 62lb black female that came in from the Bolton Farm in Florida. She was a very good racer that raced 104 races, mostly at the top A level. She also raced in a couple of Stakes races for the best racers at the track. Sherry retired back in July and was sent back to the farm to be a mom. Since the vote to end greyhound racing in Florida passed, her owners decided not to breed her and sent her to us to place. We have already placed several of her littermates. They are all very sweet dogs. Her sire is Golden Squire and her dam is B My Merlot. Sherry is a very friendly girl. We have followed her career closely and our volunteers visited her at the track so we have lots of photos of her. Be sure to check out her other photos to see a few of them. Whoever adopts this girl will inherit a lot of pictures. Sherry was adopted in November of 2019 but is available again. Her family had several small kids and Sherry liked them at first but has grown less tolerant of the fast movements and loud noises that kids make over the year she has been there. She is stressed and unhappy there so they decided to rehome her. Sherry is looking for another family without small kids.

Love just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track. She never actually raced. She had a minor shoulder injury in schooling in July so went back to the Bolton farm in Florida for a few weeks to rest and rehab. After she healed up and went back into schooling, she twisted her hock. Although it was not broken, it was pretty sore. The decision was made to retire her rather than risking any further injury. We have quite a few photos of her because she was one of the racers a group of our volunteers followed online since her owners bought her at auction. Love is a sweet girl that seems very laid back and very loving. She passed her cat with only a couple of quick sniffs and would jump away if the cat approached her so she should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. Her sire is Gigawatt and her dam is KB's Rae Bae. She weighs around 60lbs but doesn't have an official racing weight since she never got that far. She just turned 2 on August 23rd. Our vet has looked at her leg and doesn't see any obvious lameness and the swelling has gone down already, so she should recover fully.

Special Needs! Tad came in from the Blanchard Kennels at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She didn't actually race there though. She actually raced at Blanchard Kennels at Wheeling Downs in WV first, then was moved to their kennel at Tri-State in WV. Tad raced 103 races and did get up to the top AA level at Tr-State so was a good racer. She just turned 4 on May 25th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is NMS Sweet Thing and her dam is Boc's Posh Spice. Tad was a little shy and overwhelmed when she arrived but does warm up pretty fast and loves her people deeply. She passed her cat test with just some sniffing and would back away from the cat when it approached and rubbed on her. She lived in a home with a cat and was afraid of it. Tad came in with a note attached to her paperwork from her trainer: "Tad is very special, she's a little strange but awesome". Tad is special needs because she has pretty severe separation anxiety. She needs to be crated when left to keep her from being destructive and going potty in the house, but she is very loud in the crate and hates it. Since she is loud in the crate she definitely couldn't live in a townhouse or apartment. She needs to have blankets as padding in her crate rather than a dog bed, because she likes to unstuff dog beds when left alone. Although she passed her small dog test, she can be bossy with other dogs small and large so may do better as an only dog. Having another dog in the home to hang out with when left doesn't seem to help her separation anxiety. Tad has been returned a couple of times now due to her separation anxiety. She is looking for a quiet home that has people home most of the time that can spend time working with her and help her get over her separation anxiety. She can have tummy issues, but since retirement has been on a lamb based food. She has also been able to eat fish treats, beef, pasta, and milkbones. She was fed a mostly beef diet at the track. Tad has been living in a home without a fenced yard and does potty well on leash. She loves to run and play at the dog park, so would do great in a home with a fenced yard too. She loves to go for car rides and will jump right in the car on her own. She loves kids and seems drawn to them, but since she can be bossy with other dogs, we would prefer to place her in a home with no small kids.

His sire is the famous Dragon Fire and his dam is Caramel Delight. Fudge passed his cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. Fudge is adaptable, loving, gentle, playful- just goes with the flow. His personality just draws you in. He walks well on leash too. His foster home is working on teaching him not to counter surf, but that seems to be his only small flaw.

Special Needs Heart Problems! Bones came in from the Daytona Beach Track Closing. He raced at the Waverider Kennel there. He raced 94 races there, and did race a couple at Orange Park early on too. He wasn't real good and only won a few at the lower levels of racing. He just turned 3 on Feb 1st and raced at 73lbs. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is B's Elite Wendy. Bones passed his initial cat test with some sniffing and then lost interest but was too interested in cats when meeting them later so at this point he probably would do better in a home with no cats. He is a friendly guy that has a wonderful personality. Bones seems smart and picks up things fast. When he came in he excitedly pulled on leash checking everything out. After just a little coaching he started walking nicely on leash. Although Bones was used to being around and handled by the 5 kids of his trainer at the track, he did not like the kids in his first home so is back looking for a home with no kids. When Bones arrived our vets noticed that he had a significant heart murmur, enlarged heart and an irregular heart beat. He has been seen by a specialist at Upstate Specialists and does have what looks like genetic heart problems that are likely to continue to get worse and shorten his life. It is amazing that he was able to race and that his heart held up to that strenuous activity. We are starting him on a medication that will slow his progression into Congestive Heart Failure. Once he gets into Congestive heart failure he will have 8 to 10 months. We do not know how long he will have with the medication. Bones is just the sweetest guy and loves adults. He is still goofy, playful and fun and everyone that has met him has fallen in love with him. Our vet suggested limiting playtime to 10 minutes and no lure chasing or really strenuous play. Bones is a special guy that deserves a very special home for whatever time he has left.  NOTE!  Because of his status as Special Needs, interested adopters do not have to be on the waiting list and his adoption fee is reduced to help his new family.

Guru just arrived from Lester Raines Kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 64 races mainly at the Sanford Orlando Race track where he ran in Bolton Kennel. When that track closed, he was moved to Jacksonville. He was a good racer racing at the top A level in Orlando. He jammed his ankle in his last race so they decided to retire him even though it could easily heal up with a couple of months break from racing. There are only about 10 weeks of racing left in Florida so they decided to just retire him. His ankle is already doing really well. He just shouldn't run around for another month or so to make sure it is totally healed. Guru is pretty friendly but can be slightly timid at first in new situations. He was a bit nervous when confronted by a friendly cat and tried to hide in the curtains. Was a little hesitant to approach the small dog too but did eventually get brave enough to sniff. Guru is a mid sized guy that raced at 75lbs. He just turned 3 on August 6th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is Sav Anna. He looks like he was the only pup in his litter and he was born at Plum Creek farm. More as we get to know him

Sully just arrived from Greyhounds As Pets of NE Florida. They are the track adoption group for the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She was vetted in Jacksonville with their vet. Sully raced only 3 of her 62 races at Orange Park. She raced the rest of her races at the Sanford Orlando track and was moved to Orange Park after Orlando closed in March. It took Sully 21 Maiden races (races for dogs that have never won a race) to actually win a race. She stayed at the lowest D level for quite a few races and gradually figured it out and got up to B level. When she started coming in last place in her races again she was retired in September. Sully is a fuzzy dark brindle girl that will turn 3 November 18th. She raced at 60lbs. Her sire is Rocksteady Eddie and her dam is Dakotas Peggey. We placed a fully brother from a different litter recently named Rainydayadventur. Sully passed her small dog test and seems to like the kids she met. She was too interested in chasing cats so needs a home without kitties. Sully is sweet, affectionate and loves to play with toys. She was very noisy in her kennel at first and would howl when left alone so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Gradually she got better and was able to stay quiet in her kennel after a few days in her foster home. More as we get to know her.

Linus just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He was vetted there with the track adoption group before coming to us. He never had an official race because he was never able to win a maiden race. He only did 5 maiden races that are for new racers that have never won a race. Once they win a maiden race they become an official racer. Linus is a 77lb black male that turned 2 on July 29th. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Litemyfuse. Linus has too much prey drive to live with kitties and did not pass his cat test. He should be OK to live with small dogs because he has done well with the ones he has met on walks around the neighborhood.  He is a very sweet, friendly guy that loves to give kisses and is very gentle and affectionate. Linus is very outgoing and wants to go see every person he sees on walks. He loves the water and loves his walks. Every morning he wakes his foster dad up by putting his paws on his chest and kissing his neck then just snuggles his face on his chest. He still needs to be tested with kids.

Inkster is a handsome black guy that raced at 77lbs. He raced 112 races, all at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. Inkster was pretty good getting up to the top A level. He retired back in March and was with Greyhounds As Pets of North East Florida, the track adoption group, until coming to us. He still needs to be tested with cats but has done fine with the dogs he has met. Inkster's sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Pat C Bs Calamus. He just turned 4 on August 9th. Inkster's foster mom says he is an old soul. He hasn't had one accident in the house and tells her when he needs to go outside. He walks really well on leash. He was so relaxed that he was laying on a dog bed with all 4 feet in the air the first day in a home. He loves people and is very sweet and gentle. He loves to snuggle and is just so sweet. Inkster came to us with one toe gone from a previous toe injury that needed amputation. That doesn't bother him at all anymore, but he had another swollen toe that our vet was worried about. It turned out to just be an abscess that needed to be drained and another amputation was not required. He just had that done on Sept 14th and will be on a medical hold until his stitches come out and he is done with the antibiotics. He should be ready to go home around October 1st.
