Fostered by (location):
Bowden Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McManis Family of Easley SC 6/21/17

Maddie was initially adopted through another group that has allowed us to re-home her. She was abandoned by her owners a couple of months ago at a boarding kennel. They never returned to pick her up after boarding her there and all attempts to reach them were ignored. So now this sweet older gal is looking for a home. When we took her in, she had a mouth full of bad teeth that had caused her to have difficulty eating and some weight loss. We had her vetted and all the bad teeth pulled so she is feeling much better now. She also had blood work done and appears to be a healthy girl. Maddie is adorable with a very unique roman nose and half a tail. She never raced and was in her previous home since she was very young. She is living with small dogs in her foster home and lived with a male husky in her previous home- he was also abandoned at the boarding kennel.  She also passed her cat test without any interest. Maddie just turned 9 on March 28th. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Jax Cleopatra. Because she is a senior, Maddie qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. Maddie is a sweet, friendly girl that is calm and well behaved. She has been going outside to do her business at her foster home like a good girl. She kennels quietly so would probably be a very good choice for an apartment. This sweet, well behaved girl is a one of a kind that will stand out in every crowd of greyhounds.

Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Crago, Inman SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Williams Family of Columbia SC 6/19/17

Frodo just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced his entire career of 53 races there. He was pretty good getting up to A level. He is a large black male that raced at 80lbs. He has been retired since he pulled up in his last race March 9th. He just pulled a muscle and is fine now and has been waiting on a group to take him since then. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Kentucky Merlot. We have placed a full brother from another litter and quite a few half siblings on mom and dad's side. All are wonderful pets, so we were excited to meet Frodo. He turned 3 on March 17th so is a St Patrick's Day boy. His trainer said he is a good jumper and is the rare big boy that is a top crate dog at the track because he can jump. He jumped right into our van for the the trip. She also said he can be a big baby and dramatic. He thinks the world is coming to an end if he has to have his nails trimmed. Frodo passed his small dog and cat test very easily. He is a very friendly, guy that is waggy and happy and follows his foster mom around. He doesn't seemed stressed by much and was laying on a dog bed on his back with his feet in the air on his first day in his foster home. On the trip up he put his head on our laps and just stood there for a couple of hours, not moving and snuggling in. Very sweet boy. He was around kids on the farm where he grew up and really seems drawn to kids. Frodo has a very beautiful, shiny, black coat. He is doing great in foster care and is very quiet in his kennel so may be a good choice for apartment or townhouse dwellers.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the King Family of Lake Wylie NC 6/18/17

Special Needs - Seizures! Roar came in from the Orange Park Race Track Adoption Kennel in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 53 races there. Roar wasn't a great racer, racing mainly in the C and D levels but he did win his last race on Dec 3rd of 2016. He was retired then because he had a seizure in the kennel. We were hopeful that the seizure was a one time thing. He didn't have any more seizures until an episode of multiple seizures on March 13th and 14th. Roar is currently on 2 seizure medications that have done a good job of controlling his seizures since then. Roar is a little guy that raced at just 66lbs. He is very calm and well behaved and completely vetted already. He travels well and is super sweet. Roar kennels well and loves his crate and would be an excellent only dog because he has no problem with being left alone. He is excellent with other dogs too though. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Lee Judy. Roar will turn 3 on June 26th. He is a very good foster, 'perfect" according to his foster mom. The rare times Roar does anything he shouldn't, he responds well to gentle corrections. He is a very sweet, easy, gentle, guy that would be a great first or third greyhound. He gets along great with all the dogs he has met so far. He also passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Roar just recently went on a beach trip with his foster mom. He did great traveling and enjoyed 2 mile beach walks with her. Roar is a wonderful, friendly, happy boy that couldn't be any sweeter! One of his littermates took the tip off of one of his ears when he was young. Roar does need midday meds, so needs an owner that can come home on their lunch break or a stay at home owner. This is a sweet loving guy that has been looking for a loving home since December of 2016 only because he is a seizure dog.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Epp Family in Jamaica Plain MA 6/17/17

Cody just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is an extra large male that is 88lbs. He is so tall that he wouldn't fit into the standard crate at the race track so they had to fix a special one for him to give him enough room. He is very tall and lanky with long legs and a long tail that touches the ground. He is a young guy that was only at the track for a few schooling races and just was so big and uncoordinated that they didn't think he was cut out to be a racer. So he never had one official race. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until November 18th. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is D's Pride. Cody is very quiet in his crate so may be good for someone living in an apartment. He is very calm for a pup but does enjoy running in the yard sometimes. He still has some puppy fuzz that will shed out later. He is a friendly guy that is good on leash in spite of his size. He kind of leans into you on walks and likes to stay close. He travels very well and just lays down in the back of his foster mom's van.  He seems like he wants to please and do the right thing. More as we get to know this sweet, gentle giant. Cody was brought in as a special request for a previous greyhound adopter that lives in Massachusetts. He is not available.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Riggs Family of N Myrtle Beach SC

Sara came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. She raced 112 races there and at Naples Ft Myers. She was a good racer getting up to the top A level. She raced at 60lbs and turned 4 on May 15th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is USS Santa Rosa. Sara is very calm, sweet and quiet. When she first meets a new person she will just stand there politely, waiting to be petted. She loves the attention but is a bit timid at first with new people and often won't go up to them to seek out attention. She just waits for them to come to her. She is a beautiful girl with a gorgeous, shiny, black coat. She is very quiet in her kennel and potties really well on leash, so would be fine without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her. She might be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living since she is so quiet and calm. Sara gets along well with other dogs and lived in a foster home with no other greyhounds so seems like she would be great as an only dog too. She passed her cat and small dog tests with no interest in the cat at all. She has lived with cats and a small dogs in a foster home and is used to seeing them both. Sara can do steps and will hop in and out of cars easily to go for rides, she loves to travel and just lays down in the car. She is pretty timid once she gets out of the car in a new place though, but is very good on leash. She is a very sweet, beautiful girl that is doing great in foster care and learning the rules of home life. Sara does tend to scare easily and seems like she is a very sensitive girl. She has been good with the kids she has met, but living with loud, running young kids might just be too scary for her. Quiet kids or older kids would be better.  Sara is completely vetted and ready to go home.

Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Fulcher, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Fulcher Family of Greenville SC 6/13/17

Gus just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He only raced a total of 26 races. He started off running at Palm Beach and raced 5 races there and even won one of them, before falling in his 6th race. He barely ran in his next race and finished so far back he wasn't even in the picture. He was pulled out of racing for nearly 2 months. When he raced again he finished so far back again that he wasn't even in the picture. So he was off for 3 more months. He finally started racing better for awhile and even won a couple of races. Then he started playing with other dogs instead of racing which is strictly against the rules, so he was pulled out of racing for a couple more months and moved to another track to see if he would do better. It was finally determined that he just needed to retire. Gus turns 3 on June 7th. HIs sire is Gianni and his dam is Estonia. He has the same mom as one of the other girls that arrived with him, Eyeful. Gus is an extra large red brindle boy that raced at 83lbs. Gus was interested in the cat he was tested with at first and barked at it, but once the cat slapped him he backed away and didn't want to get close to him again. He may be trainable with a confident cat that will stand his ground. He seemed to really like the toddler he was introduced to and was fine with the small dog he met as well. He is a friendly, happy, playful guy.

She was brought in for one of our previous adopters and will be going home with them after she is vetted.

Fostered by (location):
Cole, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the O'Docharty Family of Asheville NC 6/10/17

Day came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in Florida. She is a very tiny, black, girl that only weighs 51lbs! She just turned 2 on December 11th. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. She came in with her sister Night but Night was already adopted. Day won her very first race and raced 21 races. She never won another race though, so was retired young. She is a happy, friendly girl that is young and playful. She is described by her foster home as outgoing, gentle and affectionate. She sleeps in her crate at night and doesn't make a sound unless she needs to go outside. She does great on stairs and can get in and out of the car easily. She was retested with cats and got excited at first but never tried to go after them and quickly lost interest so we think she may be trainable with them with close supervision at first. She passed her small dog test easily. Day is used to being around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12. She patiently stands and welcomes the neighborhood kids petting and attention with a wagging tail.  Day looks like she has been polished her coat is so shiny and her personality is just as shiny and bright. She has become really good on leash and doesn't pull, but does go from side to side to check things out. She loves attention from her humans. Day potties well on leash so may not need a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her. Whoever meets her is going to fall head over heals for this tiny, bundle of joy. Day is a wonderful sweet, loving girl that is about as perfect as she could be.

Night is a tiny little girl that came in from the Daytona Race Track in Fl with her sister Day. She raced at just 52lbs. Night and Day are in separate foster homes and are are fine being placed separately. Night started racing at Derby Lane but only raced a few races there. Most of her 48 races were in Daytona. She only won 2 of those races, so was retired young. She just turned 2 on December 11th. Night passed her cat and small dog tests very easily so should be able to live with cats or small dogs. She was interested in a very timid cat that would run away from her so would probably do better with a confident cat that stood its ground though. She is used to being around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12 and likes kids. She is a curious, playful, little girl that is very friendly and has never met a stranger. She is very happy and excitable and her foster home is working on her leash skills since she wants to check out everything on walks. Night is a talker and will answer you with a cute little roo roo if you talk to her and get her excited. She is very confident and comfortable in any situation. She was relaxed and laying on her back with her feet in the air within 24 hours of being in a house the first time. She was fostered in a home with cats, small dogs and kids. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. Since she is a pretty confident girl she is likely to want to be the top dog in a pack, so would need to be placed with more submissive dogs that would be OK with that. She can be a bit bossy with the other dogs in her foster home and her foster mom has been working on that. She is getting much better. She loves water and tried to go swimming in the pool. If you want a cute, tiny little girl with a great, outgoing, personality, Night is your girl.

Adoption Status: Adopted to the Hays Family of Greenville SC 6/6/17

Fifi is a young girl that never raced that came to us from Julia Ward's farm in Kansas. She is a young girl that just turned two on December 3rd. Her sire is Last Outlaw and her dam is WW's Sedan. Fifi has no prey drive and wouldn't chase a lure, so she never made it to the race track and never completed the registration process. She has tattoos in her ears but doesn't have an official racing name. Fifi is happy, sweet girl that is very friendly but submissive, dropping down at your feet and rolling over to show her belly while wagging her tail like crazy. Fifi has been in an adoptive home since March but she is getting more and more afraid of their toddler and his toys as he gets older and more mobile. They have made the difficult decision to find another home for her without toddlers where she can be happy. Fifi has no prey drive and doesn't even chase squirrels or neighborhood cats in her backyard. She lives with a cat and a small kitten. She is excellent on leash. She is very sensitive and rarely ever does anything again if she is corrected for it. Her foster home the Hayes Family decided to keep Fifi.

Fostered by (location):
Shingler, Greenwood SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Shingler Family of Greenwood SC

Ozaki came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He was a good racer and also raced at Dubuque and was a finalist in the 2016 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Race. He only raced 36 races though. He broke his leg at the end of December. His racing owner had an expensive surgery done to fix the leg then. He has been rehabbing at the track since then. He still had swelling and infection in the leg when he arrived, so we had a biopsy done on his leg to find out what was going on. It turns out he had an infection that was resistant to common antibiotics, and we had to change his treatment to daily antibiotic injections. He has been at the vet since he came in. We hoping that this new treatment would get the swelling and oozing to stop and but it did not. After 2 weeks of treatment the leg continued to get worse and the infected leg was beginning to poison his body and had to be removed. Ozaki came through the amputation great and is getting around fine on 3 legs. His trainer told us about his great personality and said he was one of his favorites in the kennel. The staff that has been working with him at our vet clinic agrees and one of them has fallen in love with him and wants to adopt him when he is released from vet care. Ozaki is a big guy that raced at 79lbs and probably weighs more than that now. His sire is the very famous SH Avatar and his dam is Money Maid. Ozaki turns 3 on June 11th. Ozaki seems like a sensitive guy that was a little stressed about the haul and everything new. We think he may be on the dramatic side. When we were loading him in the van he had to be lifted in, then wouldn't put his legs down. We had to slide him in on his side on the dog beds. That one step up just made him literally freeze. He was OK a second later, up on his feet sniffing around. Sweet, goofy, guy!

Weird is an extra large brindle boy that raced at 82lbs. We don't know how he got his "weird" name but he doesn't seem weird at all. Super sweet and cute! He retired from the Palm Beach Race track after only 8 races on August 13th. He did win a couple of races out of those. He is young and just turned 2 on October 29th. His sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Rosalina. We placed his littermate Kiowa Wish N You too! He was too excited about meeting the cat so we don't think he should live with a cat. He seems OK with a small white dog though. He is pretty good on leash. He is a very outgoing happy guy. More as we get to know him. 

His foster mom who also owns his brother decided to adopt him. His new name is Andy.

Fostered by (location):
Fulcher, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Pilgrim Family of Pickens SC 5/27/17

Dudley just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He never had an official race, because he had an injury to his hock while he was in race training. Our vet has x-rayed the old break and it is healing nicely. It happened over a month ago and wasn't a bad break. He is not in a splint and is walking on it very well with only a slight limp already. He still needs leash walked a bit longer to be sure it is completely healed up, but our vet thinks he will be fine to run and play normally in a few more weeks. Dudley is completely vetted and ready to be adopted. He is a young guy that won't turn 2 until August 16th. Dudley is a mid sized male that should be around 75lbs. He is in the process of losing his puppy coat and his new glossy coat is already coming in. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Hey Dodi Lou. Dudley is a cute, friendly boy that seems pretty calm for one so young. We are sure he will love to play once he is off his leash walking restriction though. He complains some in his kennel, so may not be the best apartment or townhouse dog. Dudley does correct really well though, and quiets down fast. He has shown no interest in the small white dog in his foster home so should be OK to live in a home with small dogs. He passed his cat test without much interest other than a quick sniff, then checked out everything else in the room. He seemed very happy to see the toddler and baby we introduced him to and really seemed drawn to them and interacted very well.  Dudley didn't like steps at all when he came in but he is learning to do them in his foster home. He loves being around other greyhounds and dogs and is much more happy and waggie when they are around. He is a bit more reserved at his foster family's house where he is an only dog. Dudley is an adorable loving guy that is going to make a great pet for some lucky family.

McManis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Monaghan family of Blythewood SC 5/26/17

Domina just arrived from a Kansas farm. She raced very briefly in Wheeling and Sarasota and wasn't very good, only winning a couple of races. She did have a good bloodline so her owners wanted her to be a mom. She had 2 litters of pups that are racing now. Three pups in 2014 and 4 more in 2015. There may be more pups that aren't registered yet from more recent litters. Domina raced at 66lbs and her sire is Super C Sampson and her dam is Sing It Blondie. She will turn 9 on September 22nd. Domina has it all, super sweet, calm, happy and friendly personality. She is the favorite dog of the grandkids on her farm. She is pretty stressed out by everything new since she arrived. She should warm up with time and become the happy friendly girl she was at the farm after she gets more comfortable. Because she is an older girl Domina qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. More as we get to know her.

DeAngelo just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and Mardi Gras. He raced 180 races at 75lbs. He was pretty good and did get up to the top A level. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Auntie Anne. DeAngelo turns 5 on May the 14th. DeAngelo seems very laid back and calm. He is friendly and very sweet. He has a beautiful shiny black coat with cute ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. One of his littermates took a bite out of one of his ears when they were puppies so he is missing a tip of one ear. DeAngelo showed no interest in the small dog he met so should be fine to live with them. He also passed his cat test. He was curious and sniffed the cat a few times, but quickly lost interest and continued checking out the rest of the room. If you want a handsome, calm, easy guy, DeAngelo is the one for you! After a few days in his foster home, he started doing the greyhound grin when he is happy or excited. We love the grinners and only some greyhounds do this. Fernando is completely vetted and ready to go home.

We aren't sure who her parents were and the rest of the puppy litter has already been placed in adoptive homes. This cute girl is very tiny, at just 29lbs when she arrived. She should be bigger than this at this age so she is either younger than we think, or is the runt of the litter and likely to stay tiny. A tiny adult female greyhound usually weighs 50 - 55lbs, so she has a lot of growing to do to catch up. She is only about knee high right now and perches on the arm of a sofa comfortably. She is a friendly, sweet girl that seems very social. She is a puppy so is likely to be much higher energy than the typical adult greyhound. Greyhound puppies need large fenced yards and can run and play for hours. Like all puppies they need constant supervision while they learn house rules and learn how to be a good dog. Once they learn it they are likely to still need supervision and frequent reminders because they forget the rules quickly. Greyhound puppies are like any other breed of puppy and are not the easy laid back dogs that adult greyhounds become. For those that have a lot of time and patience, puppies can be a lot of fun, but they can be very challenging.

Noralie just arrived from the Kansas Farm where she has been living since she retired from racing. She was a great racer that traveled around and raced at a lot of tracks: Flagler, Naples Ft. Myers, Southland and Pensacola. She was consistently a top level A racer and even competed in big Stakes Races. So when she was retired she went back to the farm to be a mom. Her pups are too young to be registered yet so we aren't sure how many she has. Noralie raced at 62lbs and just turned 6 on January 6th. She is a bouncy, happy girl that loves people and is very outgoing. She is playful and doesn't act her age at all. She needs some work on walking on leash because she does pull. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and we placed her mom Flying Northern. More as we get to know this gorgeous girl.

She is a super outgoing girl that loves everyone she meets. She would be a meet and greet superstar according to her trainer. Since she is young she is still pretty active and playful. Her sire is WW Apple Jax and her dam is WW's Revolver. Spin passed her cat test and should be fine to live with small dogs too. She has been around her trainer's kids ages 5 to 12 for the short time she was in the racing kennel. She has been there since January. Spin has done well on walks and is pretty good on leash. She wasn't phased by the hardwood floors in her foster home. Very cute girl that doesn't seem to be worried by much.

Stan is a large red male with cute ears that stand straight up. He is 80lbs of sweetness. Although he is large he isn't as tall as he is muscular. He has that body builder look.

We placed his littermate Blazing Andy last year.  Stan is a calm, friendly male that was always good in the kennel. He doesn't jump up or bark and so far hasn't had accidents in the house and hasn't tried to steal anything. He would be a very easy first or 4th greyhound He is used to being around his race trainer's children ages 5 to 12.

Dusty is a 78lb black male that won't turn 3 until November 26th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is TMB Sweet Alex. He just retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He only raced a few races there before his kennel closed. He also raced a few races at Palm Beach and Derby Lane. He didn't race long and only has 29 races listed. Dusty is a very friendly, sweet guy that stood with his head on our shoulder for an entire 2 hour drive. He seems like he has a real goofy personality that shows in his pictures. He does have a short attention span and wants to check out everything at once which helped him pass his cat and small dog tests. Small dogs cool! Cool cats! Look a plant! What is this a rug? A toy! Look a TV! Wow so much to see! Dusty is a handsome guy that has a shiny black coat and will make someone a fun friend. He is young and does have a higher energy level because of his age than a typical couch potato greyhound probably because he is so young. He is bouncy and does pull on leash trying to see everything in his exciting new world. He does have an amazing tongue but in his defense it was a really hot day when the pictures were taken. Dusty's trainer at the track took her 3 boys with her to the kennel so all her dogs are used to being around children. Dusty is doing great in his foster home on a farm with the cats, chickens, goats and cows.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Shappard Family of Clayton NC, 5/7/17

Willy initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track where he raced 122 races. He was pretty good and got up to the top A level briefly. Willy is a an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Sweetsouthern. He just turned 6 on December 24th. Willy is a very friendly, happy, confident guy. He was in an adoptive home since April of 2015, so he is already home acclimated. He loves people and does great at our meet and greets going up to each person for love. He is the rare greyhound that will actually bark at intruders that try to come into his home and yard though so would be a great dog for someone that wanted a watch dog. He loves to go out on walks and for drives and is very friendly with everyone he meets off of his own property though. He adores going for walks and potties great on leash so would be fine for a family without a fenced yard. Willy is a great guy with a fun, playful personality in short bursts. He is calm and well behaved in the house though. He loves to lay on the couch with his owner with his head in his lap and loves to snuggle. Because he can be protective of his property, we think he would do best in a quiet, adult only home that doesn't have guests often. Willy has had some grumpiness over his space when laying down and that is another reason we have him listed as no children. He has done great in his foster home living with other greyhounds and two smallish to medium sized dogs but Willy can be bossy with other dogs. Medium to large housemates are OK if they are submissive and OK with another dog being the leader of the pack. Willy has lived in a home as an only dog so would be perfect for a one dog household too. His foster mom says he is a super sweet guy and is perfectly behaved, clean in the home with no accidents, and sleeps quietly both in his crate and all night long. Willy may be a good choice for apartment living too.  If you like big greyhounds, Willy could be your guy!

Coco came in from the Jacksonville FL Orange Park Race Track. She broke her leg in her last race on Jan 18th. She had surgery to repair it funded by Pro Greyhound, a group that funds surgical repairs and rehab of retired racers through your donations. If you would like to donate see their page here. Coco raced 121 races, some at Gulf Greyhound Park in Texas before moving to Florida. She raced at 61lbs and turned 4 on Feb 6th. Her sire is Look My Way and her dam is Poor White Dog. She has completed her rehab and recovery and has been released by our vets for adoption. Her leg has healed very well and she should be able to run around and play normally. Coco is pretty friendly and likes people, but she isn't a social butterfly. She isn't pushy for affection and is perfectly happy to stand back and let others get the attention. Coco loves to be outside and will lay in the yard watching her foster dad while he does yard work. She is calm and sweet. Coco does complain some when crated so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog, although she is quiet when out of the kennel. She passed her cat and small dog test so should be fine to live with either.

Gem just arrived from North Shore Kennels at Palm Beach. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 53lbs. She only raced 17 races total and also raced briefly at Derby Lane. She didn't win one of her races and broke her hock in her last race on October 19th. Her leg was fixed and rehabbed at the track and the vet has cleared her for adoption now. The leg healed up great and she can play and run around with no problem. Her trainer describes her as "super sweet and friendly", and says she'll climb right up in your lap. She is definitely a snuggly girl that loves to be close. She's playful and probably would prefer a family that will keep her active or a playmate with a yard where she can run around. She's quiet and calm inside the kennel and house though and gets along with all the other dogs. She is a cute girl that has ears that stand straight up when she sees something she is interested in. Gem's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Kiowa Lazy Jill. She is young and just turned 2 on Dec 11th. Gem passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She seems to like the grandchildren that visit her foster home.

Moscato is a gorgeous, small black female that just arrived from Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. We love her name! She raced most of her races at Mardi Gras Race Track. She didn't win one race at either track so she was retired young. Moscato just turned 2 on April 14th. She is a tiny girl racing at 56lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale* and her dam is KL's Tara Ann. Moscato is a very friendly, happy girl. She travels great and just lays down for most of the trip. She does stairs really well and was fostered in a 3rd floor apartment for a little while. She loves to snuggle on the couch or bed with her family. Moscato is a very loving girl with the prettiest big brown eyes and a beautiful shiny black coat. Very cute and so happy! She loves to play with toys that squeak. Moscato passed her cat test but did get excited and barked at the cat to start with. She never wanted to go near the cat though. When we made her go close to the cat and the cat hissed and spat at her, she jumped back and barked, then she really wanted nothing to do with the cat. At the apartment complex she was in one of the outdoor cats would come up and rub on her and Moscato was fine with that. Moscato is really excited over squirrels and does respond poorly to very tiny kittens and dogs that look like squirrels. She is now being fostered in a home with a 15lb Italian Greyhound and has done well with that size and larger as long as they are introduced properly. Moscato does seem to like kids and went straight up to a toddler wagging her tail.

Benton just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He came in with his littermates Bryant and Stihl. He had no desire to race or chase the lure so flunked out of training and never raced one official race. That also means that he has no desire to chase cats or small dogs or anything else, so would do fine in a home with small critters. Benton is one of the tiniest boys we have had available at only about 63lbs. He is young and won't turn 2 until April 9th. His trainer said that she put all the brothers outside together because they were whimpy and would get picked on by some of the other males. Benton is the most confident of the 3 boys and seems to be the leader of their little pack of 3. While they let other dogs boss them around, they are not shy with people at all and wag and go up to everyone happily. Benton is used to being around his trainers children ages 5 to teen. His sire is Abita Simon and his dam is Magic Patti. Sweet boy! He does get excited and barks and whines sometimes in his kennel so probably would not be a good apartment dog.

Her sire is Defrim Bale and her dam is Brandy of Ruckus. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be OK to live with either.  She crates quietly so may be a good apartment dog. She pulls a bit on leash at first but is getting better with a few reminders. She goes outside to potty nicely and pees a small amount several times in different places. So she may not kill grass as badly as females that empty everything in one place. Apricot is happy and waggy girl. She corrects easily if she does anything wrong. Apricot gets silly and bouncy when she greets you in the morning or when you come home but quickly calms down. When left alone, she will sometimes carry on a conversation with herself with growly noises and soft, quiet, barks. She is such a cute girl with a cute personality to match.

Marlo is a white boy with black spots that raced at 71lbs. He is a calm, friendly boy that was very well behaved at the track kennel. He is quiet in his kennel even when he is kenneled away from other dogs. The only time he makes any noise is when he is compelled to sing along to the sound of a fire truck or ambulance or needs to go outside. He is a very good singer that does a long sad rooo rooo rooo. He is used to being around his race trainer's children ages 5 to 12 and a small dog in his foster home and has been great with both. He had mixed results on his cat test however. He was very interested in the cat until it slapped him then he wouldn't get near it again. He did still stay pretty excited about watching the cat from a distance so we think he would do better in a home with no cats. Marlo's sire is WW's Enlighten and his dam is WW Famous Marise. We placed his littermate Persuader about a year ago.  He is very sweet and gives kisses. More as we get to know him.

Special Needs - Cushings Disease! Larry came straight from the farm to us before he was even 2 without actually making it to the race track. He and his brother just didn't show much interest in racing. Larry is a very tiny guy at just 63lbs. His sire is Iceman Brutus and his dam is WJS Raina Jem.  Larry will turn 7 on Sept 19th. He has had some very bad luck and has been returned to our group twice. Larry came in with his brother Mo and was adopted with Mo by both previous owners. He was returned from his first home because he and his brother were barking at night. They were put out in an outbuilding at night and just wanted to be in the house with their family. Larry and Mo were adopted again and did fine together, unfortunately Mo passed away suddenly a in December of 2015 due to bloat. In mid 2016, Larry started acting stressed and losing weight. His owners believed he was stressed due to the loss of his brother. His family had some blood work run by their vet and found low thyroid so started him on that thyroid meds and Prozac for anxiety and sent him back to us to rehome, in hopes a home with another dog would help him. 

Larry was very very thin and didn't look healthy. Our vet did further testing on him and found that his actual problem was an adrenal problem called Cushings Disease that is caused by a tumor. He was started on medication for the Cushings and the prozac was stopped. The medication made a huge change in Larry, he started feeling and acting better and gaining weight right away. He has been on the medication for awhile now and our vet retested his levels and his blood work is perfect now!  Our group's bill for Larry is about $1000 so far. We welcome donations to help with his care. Click here to go to our donation page. Larry will have at least two medications that he will have to take the rest of his life. Those medications will cost our group or his adoptive family about $100 a month. We don't know how fast the tumor will grow, but Larry is likely to only be with us another year or two.

We are hopeful that we will find a very special adopter for Larry that will be able to afford his long term care. Other than his health issues, Larry, appears to be the perfect greyhound. He passed his cat and small dog tests and lived with both in previous homes. He would even snuggle on the bed with his cat buddy in his last home. His current foster home also has cats. Larry is a sweet, friendly, loving guy that can be silly but is very calm and perfectly behaved in his foster home. This tiny boy has the cutest little puppy face too! Larry potties nicely on leash and walks perfectly on leash, so doesn't require a home with a fenced yard, if his family is willing to leash walk him. Larry loves to snuggle and be as close to his humans as he can get. He does get worried by Thunderstorms. We were told that Larry couldn't be crated, but he has been fine being crated at his foster home within sight of other dogs. Larry seems to have bad dreams and will wake up crying sometimes, so appears to be a very sensitive guy.  A generous donor has offered to pay most of Larry's adoption fee for whoever adopts him. Another generous donor is paying for Larry's first year of medication.

Laney just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. She raced 121 races there and got up to the top A level of racing so she was a pretty good racer. She is a red fawn that raced at 62lbs. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is BNS Bea. Laney won't turn 4 until November 24th. She is a friendly, sweet girl that started to doze off leaning on us on the trip up. She continued to lean across our lap snuggling even when we stopped petting her. Seems like a very social, curious girl. Laney is very happy and friendly. She passed her cat test with just a few sniffs and stayed far away after one hiss from the cat. She did fine with a small dog she met too and seemed to like a toddler. Laney is a cute, red girl with ears that stand straight up when she is curious about something. She can be a little whiny in her kennel so probably wouldn't be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse. Laney is doing great in foster care and is going to make a wonderful pet for a lucky family. She has the cutest stand up ears and big doe eyes.

Katie was originally placed by our group when she was young in April of 2007. At that time she was called "Gully". She was named Katie and returned in 2008 due to a serious health problem of one of her owners. She was rehomed with her latest owner in April of 2008. Her current owner is choosing to re-homing Katie at 12 years old because she doesn't think Katie is happy after a divorce, move and schedule change. Katie just turned 12 on March 19th. Katie raced only 4 races at the now closed Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida. She finished toward the back of the pack in all her races, so she was retired young at just 2 years old. We had Katie checked by our vet to be sure she was healthy. Other than a corn on one of her feet, that causes a limp on hard surfaces, she got a clean bill of health. She has lived with cats and small dogs so should be fine to live with both. She is actually going back to her original foster home and they have already decided to keep her, so she isn't available at this time. Katie travels well and wants nothing more than a soft couch to lay on. She is very laid back at her age and just is happy to nap most of the day. She is friendly with everyone. Her sire is Trojan Cruze and her dam is RK Goin Topressu. Her photo is one we had from when she was young.

Barney just arrived from North Shore Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He is just a young guy and just turned 2 on January 28th. Barney never officially raced because he broke a front leg in a training accident. His leg was fixed and rehabbed at the track and the vet cleared him to be transported to us for adoption. Barney can be a little shy at first with people he doesn't know, but he gets over it very quickly. He is very quiet but he loves to run around in the yard then go back to his crate. His favorite thing to play with are empty bottles and he will even fetch them and bring them back to you! He's a sweet boy and will stand there and let you pet him for as long as you're willing to. He loves being around other dogs but he would probably do just fine on his own, too. He's just wants to be loved by his people. Barney passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see some adorable pictures of him as a puppy. Barney's sire is Shonn and his dam is Kelso's Linda Ash. As you can see in his pictures Barney is food motivated. He has done well with the grandkids that visit his foster home.

Cat just came in from the Birmingham AL race track. She also raced some of her 105 races at Daytona Beach and Orange Park in FL. Cat mainly raced at the mid B and C levels. She is a 64lb girl with striking coloring. She is mostly black with a white chest and a white collar that runs all the way around her neck. She also has a white blaze on her face and white front legs. The really interesting thing about her coloring is that she has black freckles in the white areas. She is really unusual and very cute. She turned 4 on December 15th. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is Thataway Cat. Cat was too interested in the cats and tiny dogs to pass either of those tests, but she seemed to do OK with medium sized and larger dogs. She is described as a very happy girl that loves to give hugs and is a greyhound that grins. She has a wonderful personality and will roll over for tummy rubs. Super sweet girl. She is very quiet and calm. She seems like she would be perfect as an apartment or townhouse dog.

Fostered by (location):
Householder, Charlotte NC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Benfield Family of Concord NC 3/31/17

Special Needs - Needs experienced dog home Jack is a famous boy even though he never raced. He was in the first litter of pups that Greyhoundfacts.org followed. You can see pictures of him and his litter Here. He comes with tons of puppy photos from the time he was born. Jack wasn't that interested in racing and never had one race. He was sent to an adoption group in Colorado when he was only a little over a year old, but they had him for months without any interested adopters. His owner sent him to Florida for a change of scenery in hopes he would find a home there, but that didn't work out because he was still a big high energy pup at that age. He was brought in to our group for an adopter that wanted him. Jack's sire is the famous Paddy Whacker and his dam is Blazin Angelfire. He is a large guy and should weigh around 80lbs.  He will turn 3 on May 21st. Jack has been in several adoptive homes, but has been returned by each due to a variety of problems. He was returned the first time because he played too rough with a 3lb dog in the home, so we had to mark him "no small dogs". Jack was returned again because he was growly with a child when he was laying down. Even though he loved the kids in his foster home, he had to be listed "no small kids".  He was returned again after only a couple of days because the german shepherd in his home didn't get along with him. He was just returned again because they didn't have time to spend with him and he got bored and started getting into things. Jack doesn't like to be crated and complains loudly about it, so he can't be an apartment dog either. Jack has calmed down a lot since he arrived. A greyhounds brain comes in sometimes between 2 and 3 years old and now that Jack is nearly 3 he seems to be a much easier dog. His current foster home has had no trouble with him at all. He has gotten along fine with their smallish to medium sized mixed dog and their greyhounds and has been the perfect house guest. Jack is extremely affectionate and sweet and just wants attention and love. Even though he can be excitable and playful for short spurts, he calms down and can be quite the couch potato now. Jack had mixed results with cats in his foster homes, so we also put him down as needing a home with no cats. He was good with cats most of the time, but he could get excited when they played and ran and wanted to join in. Jack is very outgoing, waggy, friendly and happy. He loves to give kisses. He has a lot of personality and just needs some exercise, leadership and rules for him to thrive. Jack was retired out of training shortly after he was a year old so has been waiting on the right home for almost 2 years now. Could your home be the right one?

Pet/Kennel Name:

Age:

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng in Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Dalton Family of Myrtle Beach 3/28/17

Special Needs - Very Shy! Jarrod initially was sent to the adoption kennel at the race track in Jacksonville in November. He was there for a couple of weeks and wasn't doing well because he is very shy. They asked us if we could take him into one of our foster homes to get him home acclimated at the beginning of December so he has been with us for months waiting on the right home. Jarrod never was interested in racing so never had an official race. He is a small guy that weighs about 68lbs and turned 2 on October 13th. His sire is Offthebrakedrake and his dam is Shorty's Nana. He passed his cat and small dog tests and is living with cats in his foster home. Jarrod is a genetically shy boy that is afraid of new people, new things and fast movements. It is his personality and not the result of anything bad happening to him. We occasionally see dogs like him that seem to have something similar to an anxiety disorder and are afraid of everything. He will need a family with a lot of patience that can wait for him to warm up to them. It may take months or a year, before a shy dog like him, gets really comfortable in a home. He is probably always going to want to be a homebody. Going out in public and travel is probably going to be too overwhelming, so his family will need to be understanding of that. We have him listed as older children only because the fast movements and loud noises that little children make will be frightening to him. Like most shy dogs, Jarrod would probably do best in a home with another more confident dog to hang out with. It took Jarrod a couple of months to get to the point that his foster mom could reach out and pet him without him ducking away. He wouldn't approach her at first unless she was kneeling or squatting down. He did sneak up to sniff her when her back is turned. He does seem to want to interact but just has to get his courage up. He plays with toys now and will play bow and bark and run around when his foster mom play bows back at him. He chooses to stay in the room with his foster mom now, rather than going back to his crate or hiding in another room. After a few months he started seeking affection and will come to his foster mom to be petted now. He is very good in the house and hasn't had an accident yet. He goes to the back door when he needs to go outside. He does get loud in the crate sometimes, so he won't be a good apartment dog. Jarrod is a gorgeous brindle boy with very unusual golden eyes. So handsome! It is very rewarding to work with an exceptionally shy dog like Jarrod. When he finally comes around and decides to trust his new family it will be a beautiful thing, but it will take a lot of patience on the part of his new family. He is an exceptionally timid boy.

Fozzie just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course. He is a traveler and raced 85 races at quite a few tracks though. He started out at Wheeling Downs in WV which is a tough track. He wasn't able to win a race there so was moved to Orange Park. He won one race there but then came in at the back of the pack for a few races so he was moved to an easier track still, Melbourne. He quickly got up to the top A level there. He also raced at Sanford Orlando before moving to Birmingham and he raced at A level at both of those tracks too. His last race in Birmingham was an A level race that he trailed in on Feb 21st. Fozzie is a 73lb red fawn male that just turned 3 on March 2nd. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is WW's Uh Huh. He passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. He is described as a very calm guy that is very social, loving and sweet. His foster home says he is doing great there and is settling in very fast. He is doing great with their child too.

Fostered by (location):
Erskine, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hart family, 3.25.17

Bug is a very young girl that just turned two on January 24th. She came in from Goodman Kennel at the Sanford Orlando race track. She never did well in race training so Bug was retired without ever actually racing. Since she never raced we don't have a racing weight for her but we guess her to be around 65lbs. She is a beautiful, red brindle with a white blaze, white stockings and chest. Her sire is the very famous Greys Statesman and her dam is Elysiums Joy. Bug is very young so still acts puppyish. She is very friendly and waggy. She loves to travel but tries to climb up into the front seat to help drive. Bug is still wiggly and has a short attention span because of her age. She got better after being in her foster home for a little while, but like a kid, she will need supervision and reminders on minding her manners in a new home. Bug would do great with a family that could provide her with some exercise and play since she is young and more energetic than older greyhounds She is good with the small dogs she has met, but gets a little too excited about cats to be able to live with them. She has done great with the toddler that visits her foster home and seems to really like kids. If you are looking for a young beauty with plenty of personality Bug may be your girl.

Shaw just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He is a very small male that raced at just 65lbs. Shaw only raced 6 races and finished at the back or near the back of the pack in all of them so he is a young guy. He won't turn 2 until July 3rd. HIs sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is K's Sloan. Shaw is a very handsome boy. He has so many large black spots that it would be hard to decide if he was more white or black. He is a very happy, friendly boy that loves people. He is curious about everything and wants to check everything out. He wanted to climb into our lap on the dog haul and when we stopped decided to try to get up on the dashboard to check that out from our lap. He seems like a happy silly guy.

Zen just arrived from Waverider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. He raced 17 races all at Derby Lane but usually finished toward the back of the pack. He raced his last race in October and was moved to Daytona Beach but ended up not racing any more races there. He is a beautiful, shiny black male that raced at 77lbs. His sire is Dragon Fire and his dam is Kiowa Dance. He is still young and just turned 2 on December 13th. Zen seems pretty calm and well behaved for such a young dog. He has been around kids, ages 5 - 12, in his kennel. They often help their mom out in the kennel. Zen did not pass his cat test, but he did great with the small white dog in his foster home. He is a very friendly boy that just wants to stand near you so you can pet him. He is very sweet. He does pull on leash some to check out all the new things so his foster mom is working on that. He does potty well on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard if his owners are willing to leash walk him. Zen has been pretty quiet in his crate so far so he may be a good choice for an apartment dog. He is a gorgeous guy!
