Fostered by (location):
Ng (Columbia, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Weidman Family of Hephzibah GA 12/26/14

Connor just arrived from the Birmingham Race track. She is a tiny black female that only weighs 55lbs. She turned 2 on May 5th and only raced 39 races. She was pretty good and quickly got up to the top A level of racing there and won a couple A level races. She pulled up in her last race August 2nd and they found she had a broken front leg. Her leg was fixed and splinted at the track. She is out of the splint and cleared for adoption now. The break healed up very well and shouldn't affect her life as a pet. Connor is a shy girl at first with people she doesn't know but it usually only takes her a few days to warm up to new people. She is very sweet and loving with her foster mom and the staff at the vet clinic that she has visited frequently. She was a little interested in the cat at first in her cat test, but once the cat slapped her she wouldn't get near it again. She has done well in her foster home with the cat there too so should do well in a home with a cat. Most of our shy dogs are a little too timid to live with loud, rowdy, young children and prefer more quiet homes with older or calm, quiet children or children that just visit occasionally but Connor hasn't really been around many children yet. Connor is a very sweet, happy girl that is so beautiful!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the France family of Atlanta 12/26/14

Andrea just arrived from a greyhound farm in Kansas with her sister Abby. She raced 162 races at 57lbs in Palm Beach Florida. She retired from racing in January of 2014. Andrea has been at the farm since, with the plans for her to have puppies. Her owner decided to retire her and let her be a pet so she is ready for the pet stage of her life now. We already placed her mom Audacious and one of her sisters Beguiled so have been waiting on her and her sister to retire. Her sire is TK Quick Strike. Both girls passed their cat tests so should be fine to live in a home with cats or small dogs. We found out that Andrea is a grinner when she is happy. Very cute! More as we get to know her.

Bo
Age:

Color/Gender:
Red Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bowden Family of Greenville SC 12/24/14

Bo never raced. He was born on November 4th in 2005. Bo has had a long run of bad luck with adoptive homes. He was adopted out as a young dog and was in his first home for 4 years until 2011 when one of them started having trouble with a dog allergy. He was adopted out to another family in 2011 but was found running loose in April of 2014. His previous family didn't respond to attempts to contact them to see if they wanted their dog back so the family that found him decided to keep him. Bo has been whining a lot in that home and didn't appear to be happy, so now he is being rehomed again. His sire is the famous Fortified Power and his dam is M's Elizabeth. He just turned 9 on Nov 4th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200! Bo is a handsome boy that loves to be by your side. Bo absolutely loves children and slept in the bed with a 7 year old boy in one of his previous homes. He gets along well with other dogs small and large. Bo is a fun boy, and is constantly making his foster family laugh. Even though he is an older guy, he is still playful and loves to run around in the yard. After a very short run can usually be found laying on the couch or bed nearest his people. He is such a loving happy guy and so cute too! Bo seems like he has too high of a prey drive towards cats to be able to live with them but has been living with small dogs and is wonderful with them. Bo can be vocal if left alone so wouldn't be a good dog for an apartment or townhouse. If you want a dog that is already used to living in a home that loves kids, this is your guy!

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnston Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Brown Family of Mauldin 12/17/14

Gracie is a small black female that raced at 57lbs. She originally came from the track in Orlando and raced only 9 races there not placing in one of them. Gracie has been in an adoptive home for over 2 years already so comes home acclimated and should be a very easy girl for just about any family. She is a sweet, friendly, laid back girl. Her birthday is March 28th 2010 so she is 4. Her sire is Tony's Oracle and her dam is USS Upside. She is a littermate to Michele Henry and Cute Candle that we already placed and a half sister to several other dogs. Gracie has been living with cats for 2 years and is fine with them. She did great in her adoptive home at first as one of only a couple of dogs. In the last two years they have added quite a few dogs to the family including 3 puppies. Gracie has always had some issues with not liking to be bothered by other dogs when laying down or sleeping. Having so many dogs in the house is too much for her so her family would like us to find her another home where she will be happier. Gracie needs a quieter home with only one other calm dog or no other dogs. She is fine with people approaching her when she is laying down according to her former family and likes children. Because she has shown grumpiness about her space with other dogs we chose to mark her older children only just to be safe.

Sarah is a beautiful, unusual light fawn with black stripes. She is a tiny girl racing at just 55lbs. She was a successful racer and raced 131 races at Derby lane in St Pete FL. She even raced in a couple of Stakes races. Because she was good she had one litter of pups before she was retired. Even though she had a long race career and is a mom she is still very young and won't turn 5 until February 2nd. She is a very special girl with a great personality that her trainer would love to just adopt herself if she had room for another one at home. She wants this girl to get a very special home. Sarah's sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Dreamy Blossom. More as we get to know her. Be sure to look at her other pictures to see pictures of her as a puppy.

Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Reisen Family, 12.13.14

Elf never actually raced and broke her leg in training. She is very young and just turned 1 year old on April 19th.  Elf had surgery to fix her leg and was transported to our group a month later after she was cleared to travel. Her sire is Kelsos Fusileer and her dam is Kiowa Adara Amy. She has made a good recovery from the break and should be able to walk and play just fine. Her splint is off and she has her final vet appointment on October 10th so is available for adoption now. To help our group take in more injured athletes like Elf please go to our Injured Athlete Page. This is a very special fund that we have just for dogs with major injures and 100 percent of it goes to pay for surgeries and vet care. Thanks to our generous supporters we are able to help quite a few dogs with broken legs. Elf is a very sweet snuggler that loves to get up in your lap. She loves people and gives puppy kisses and even grins sometimes. Elf loves kids and everyone she meets. Since she is still a playful pup, she might accidentally knock over toddlers while playing with them so we have her listed as older children only. Because she is still a pup, Elf needs supervision and frequent reminders about household rules. She has played with a Jack Russell in her foster home and is good with him, but being a pup she might play too rough to play with a tinier dog than that.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Becker Family, 12.13.14

Lindy is a very young, beautiful, white girl with black spots that came to us straight from the farm. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is Leprechaun Girl. Lindy never showed much interest in racing so her racing owners feel that she would make a better pet and decided not to send her to the race track. She did pass her cat and small dog tests so should be fine in a home with either. Lindi is very timid and shies away from strangers. If you come to meet her she will go to her crate and won't interact but she only needs a little time to warm up. She is very friendly and comfortable around her foster dad after just a short time. Lindy just needs a little time and patience and she will be the BEST girl. Lindy has turned into a very sweet snuggler at her foster home. Very loving! Lindy came in with her sister Lori who has already been adopted so some of the pictures are of both girls.

Fostered by (location):
Glymph, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hill Family of Wilmington NC 12/11/14

Quirky came in from the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel. He was a good racer there racing most of his 178 races at the top A level. He is a larger guy that raced at 80lbs. He will turn 4 on December 15th. His sire is an Irish import Ballymac Flight* and his dam is BD's Harper. Quirky did not pass his cat test so needs a home with no kitties. He did respond OK to the small dog he was tested with and realized quickly that it was a dog and not a bunny. Quirky's is being fostered in a townhouse and has been very quiet in his crate there but he was briefly in another apartment home and complained about being left there so may not be a great apartment dog. His foster mom says he is a very easy calm guy that would be great for a first time greyhound owner. He is a sweet loving guy that loves people. Great personality!

She is a calm, well behaved girl that turned 2 on July 26th. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be OK to live with either. Leeza is a follower and is more confident if she has another dog to follow around so her ideal home would have at least one other dog.

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnston in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Markov Family of Savannah GA 11/28/14

Don't let his tough name fool you, Crusher is a sweet, loving guy that looks like a deer with big dark eyes. In spite of his cuteness he has been waiting on someone to adopt him or another group to take him at the Birmingham Adoption Kennel since he retired in May. Crusher has a higher than average prey drive and at first mistook other breeds of dogs for bunnies so it didn't appear that he was going to be able to live with small dogs or cats. He is doing great in his foster home though and after sniffing a few dogs of other breeds figured out that they were just dogs. He has been fine meeting even a small white Italian greyhound. He loves to play and does try to get other dogs to play with him so he would probably do better with medium to larger dogs that could actually play with him than very small dogs that couldn't. Crusher loves toys and especially likes ones that squeak. He complains sometimes about being left in his crate so probably wouldn't be a good dog for apartment or townhouse living. He loves people and is great with other greyhounds he has met. He was a good racer that raced 110 races in Birmingham and he got up to the highest A level of racing. He raced at 73lbs which is mid sized. Crusher turned 3 on April 24th. His sire is Mulberry Lazer and his dam is Mulberry Tipsy.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Winestins, Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Patel family 11/26/14

Patsy originally came to us from the Orange Park track in Jacksonville Fl. She actually raced in Sarasota Florida and in Dubuque IA though and never actually competed in Orange Park according to her race record. She is a 66lb red female that raced 40 races. Patsy turned 3 on July 25th. Her sire is from Ireland named Team Record and her dam is Pat C Fluctuate. Patsy is a happy, friendly girl with a great personality. She is used to being around kids because her trainers brought their kids to work with them and she loved the kids. In a greyhound racing kennel all the dogs wake up and get up when someone comes in or opens their crate so sleep startle is rarely ever seen and definitely isn't a problem. Since she arrived we have found that she doesn't like to be touched when she is sleeping. For this reason we prefer to place her in a home without kids or a home with older kids that are old enough to understand not to bother her while she is sleeping. Her foster home has been working on this behavior and Patsy is responding well to training. Patsy has lived with a small hyper dog but would do better with larger, calmer dogs that will not jump on her when she is sleeping for the same reason. She has lived with cats and is good with them. She gives kisses and loves to play with toys. A very happy, friendly girl and what a GORGEOUS girl! She is very sweet and well behaved and has great house manners.

Spellbound is a tall red fawn female. She raced at 66lbs. She just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. She only ran 12 races and is another one that started bumping into and playing with the other racers so was not allowed to continue her racing career. Her sire is BD's Greyson and her dam is WW's Uh Huh. She turned 2 on Nov 6th. Spellbound was too interested in kitties to pass her cat test so we thought she would need a home with no cats but she paid no attention to that cats in later cat tests so seems to be OK now. She did well with small dogs as well. More as we get to know her.

Hayes (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Hayes family of Greenville 11/21/14

Mac is an extra large, loving greyhound that raced at a huge 84lbs and is well over 90lbs now. During his time at Orange Park track adoption kennel (GPA of NE Florida) he was a kennel favorite. His sire is the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey so he is a half brother to a bunch of the dogs we have placed. His dad seems to throw extra sweet pups and Mac is a twin to another big guy that we already placed. He was born on March 21st of 2009 so he is 4 years old. This boy is a happy, loving guy that loves everyone he meets. He seems like a fun guy that bounces happily when he meets you but so far has crated quietly so can be calm and lazy too. He is food motivated so should be easy to train to do tricks or obedience. Mac is a big lovable guy that is going to make a great pet. He is cat and small dog friendly so could live with either. Mac has been in an adoptive home for over a year now and was returned to us because they had a child and no longer had time for a dog. He is wonderful with kids and should be an easy pre acclimated pet for some lucky family. He was returned to us very overweight so we are working on getting some weight off of him. The photos we have of him are ones when he first retired and was in great shape.

He is young and turned 2 on August 7th. His sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and his Dam is Kiowa Deli Dana. He did not pass his cat test at the track so will need a home with no kitties. He was OK with the small dog he met at the track and should be OK to live with small dogs with supervision at first. He is a quiet guy that should be OK to live in an apartment.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kaage Family of Augusta GA, 11/15/14

Draw just arrived from Orange Park track in Jacksonville Florida. He was a very good racer winning top A level races at Derby Lane, Sarasota and Orange Park and even competing in some Stakes Races. He raced 173 races and retired a year ago in June. He has been at the track waiting on a home since then. Draw's sire is Brady Thomas and his dam is M's Mary Freeman. He is 5 years old and will turn 6 on December 20th. He is a happy bouncy boy that is silly and friendly. He passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. Draw loves to run and is an active guy for a 5 year old so would do best in a home with a fenced yard. Since he is bouncy and goofy we also marked him older children only. He likes kids and would accidentally knock over a toddler in his enthusiasm to play. It is just because of his playfulness and bounciness though and we don't believe he would ever intentionally hurt anything.

Kiska was a good racer that raced 172 races at Derby Lane in St Pete Florida. She retired from racing in February of 2010 and began her second career as a mom. She had 2 litters since and raised 11 pups. Kiska has now been retired from that career and is ready to be a pet. She just turned 8 years old on June 16th. Her sire is the famous Gable Dodge and her dam is Flying AC DC. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Kiska has done great in her foster home. She is very confident and doesn't let anything bother her. She gets along great with all the other dogs in her foster home large and small. Kiska walks great on leash and loves to go for walks. She loves to play with squeaky toys even more. She is a very sweet girl that will come up and lean against you for affection. It doesn't show so much in her photos but she is a beautiful light fawn with dark sable tips. She is good with children that treat dogs respectfully but she did take offense to a child that crawled on her and laid on her. So she needs to be placed with children old enough to be taught that you should never lay on or crawl on dogs because it hurts them. Because Kiska is over 8 years old she qualifies for a discounted adoption fee of $200.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lazenby/Willoughly family of Greenville SC on 11/15/14

Durango was found wandering loose and was brought to the Birmingham Race Track's adoption kennel. It took them awhile to figure out who he was and where he came from because his identifying ear tattoos were badly faded. He was identified eventually as EZ Durango. He had raced 25 races starting at Seabrook then moving to Birmingham AL. He retired from there and was adopted in 2004. His mom had been deployed and had left him with relatives. He had run away from the relatives house and had been missing for a year and a half. Another family found him, took him in and kept him until his most recent escape. His original owner was contacted and is still deployed in another country. Her relatives are unwilling to take him back. Durango just turned 13 on Nov 5th. His sire is Oneco Wiseman and his dam is Good Storm. He raced at 68lbs but is on the thin side now so is a smaller guy. Durango came in with a small tumor that needed to be removed and was under weight but other than that the vet said he was remarkably healthy for a guy his age. He loves children and passed his cat and small dog tests there. The really good news is that he has a wonderful home to go to already as soon as he arrived on Nov 14th.

She just celebrated her 2nd birthday on October 13th. Spitfire travels well and just lays down or rides with her head on your shoulder. She is quiet in her crate and potties nicely on leash so may be a good apartment dog. She did great with the child in her foster home. Spitfire is on the timid and submissive side. She was pretty overwhelmed when she first arrived and didn't eat for a couple of days but now has come out of her shell and wags and approaches people and is very loving. She gets along very well with other dogs too.

Lucy is a sweet, friendly, waggy girl that loves everyone she meets. This is a tiny little girl that raced at just 53lbs at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. She has a lot of personality in that small frame though. Lucy passed her cat and small dogs tests so should be fine living with either. She just turned 4 on October 2nd. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Top Cat Olympia. She has been a little loud when left in her crate so we don't think Image will be able to live in an apartment or townhouse. Lucy has been in a wonderful adoptive home for over a year. Her owner's health is declining and she is no longer able to care for her dogs. She has made the tough decision to rehome her dogs Lucy and Angel. Lucy is already home acclimated and is well behaved. She has lived with kids and other dogs and gets along great with everyone.

She is a pretty black girl that celebrated her 4th birthday on Feb 1st. Her sire is Daddy Warbarks and her dam is Zoomn Cheri. Dalma's last race was in January. She had a couple of seizures at the track and her owner decided it was best to retired her. She was at the track kennel from January until May waiting on a group that could take her and didn't have any more seizures even without medication to prevent them. The stress of the move from the track triggered another seizure so we put her on medication to prevent more and she has had no seizures since she started the medication. The medication is inexpensive and she may not even need to be on medication once she is in a permanent home since high excitement and stress seem to trigger her seizures. Dalma is a sweet, happy girl that is very very loving. She will curl up in your lap and loves to snuggle with people. She is very friendly with people and gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home. Her current foster home would love to dog sit for her after adoption if she is adopted in the area. Dalma did pass her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She likes the small children in her foster home. Dalma does potty nicely on leash now so may be OK for apartment living.

Star is a 77lb black male that just retired from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He was pretty good and quickly got up to A level. He turned 2 on May 28th so is still a young guy. Star loves people and is very friendly. Star's sire is the famous Iruska All Star and his dam is WW Star Isabel. Star did not pass his cat test so needs a home without cats. He loves to play and can play a little too rough for very small dogs. Although he is good most of the time with the Italian greyhound in his foster home he would probably do better with a medium or larger sized dog that he could actually play with. Star loves kids and chooses to follow them around. He isn't fond of his crate and does complain about it a bit so would not be a good choice for an apartment. Star does sleep through the night in the crate though and seems to only make noise when people are around and he is hoping to be let out or at dinner time. When he thinks no one is home, he is quiet. Star seems to be a pretty calm guy but still likes to play and get silly. Star is pretty smart and did figure out how to unhook the standard folding metal crates and get out of them. He will need a plastic vari kennel in his new home.

Tina Turner was a little overwhelmed by all the changes when she arrived but seems like she is going to be a friendly happy silly pup. Since she is still a puppy she will need a large fenced yard to run around in. Greyhound puppies are not typically the calm dogs that adult greyhounds are and need to run and play every day to burn off some of that energy.

Oscar is a friendly, bouncy, red brindle guy that will celebrate his 4th birthday October 7th. His sire is KJ''s Yukon Gold and his Dam is Gilded Rose. He has 47 races to his credit and he raced at Bluffs Run, Sarasota and Sanford Orlando. He only won 2 races but placed in the money a lot. He raced at 73lbs. He is a sweet guy that passed his cat test and has been living in a home with them. At the track they said that he was Mr Personality following his trainers around and interacting with them a lot while they were doing chores. We have seen the same thing. He doesn't seem to meet a stranger and is very outgoing and friendly. He travelled well on the trip up from the track. He is a higher energy greyhound that loves to run laps every day so would do best in a home with a large yard to run in and maybe even another dog to play with. He probably wouldn't do well in an apartment without a place to run. Oscar has been living in an adoptive home for a year but they felt he would be happier in a home with a large yard, another dog or kids to play with. Because of his higher energy level he might be the perfect dog for someone that wanted a greyhound that could do agility or lure coursing. Oscar absolutely loves children and would be great in a home with older kids that he could play with. This boy is all about playing and having a good time.

Update on Oscar from his foster mom: Oscar is the happiest doggie ever. He will wake you in the morning by putting his nose in your face. If that doesn't work, he'll slip his nose under the covers. And if that doesn't work, he will softly bark you a good morning. He thinks eating is the most wonderful thing ever! He thinks walking is the most wonderful thing ever but isn't big on going jogging and will stop after less than a mile! He thinks sleeping is the most wonderful thing ever! But maybe the MOST wonderful thing ever is when you come home and he is so happy and waggy. Not terribly friendly to squirrels, but all other critters are friends. Totally house trained.

Stinger is a huge, gorgeous, white and brindle male that raced a couple of races in Abilene and was moved to Sanford Orlando where he retired from in October of last year. He is an extra large male that raced at 94lbs and has 29 races to his credit. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Super C Queen. He celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 10th. He has been in 2 homes since October of last year. He was returned to us the first time because his family was expecting twins. They didn't feel he will be good with young children because he startles easily when asleep. He did live with a 10 year old boy though and loved him. He is a friendly. happy guy that likes people and is very well mannered in a home. He is good with small dogs but is not good with cats so needs a home with no cats. Stinger was adopted by a second family that didn't have a fenced yard. They found that he really prefers his privacy and likes to find that perfect spot to do his business which didn't work out well on leash and let to long unproductive walks and a few accidents. Stinger was also pretty excited and distracted by the rabbits and small critters wandering in the area he was supposed to go potty in which contributed to the problem. So Stinger is looking for another home with a fenced yard where he can be comfortable.
