Roman is coming in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He raced 19 maiden races there for dogs that haven't won a race. He mainly finished in the back of the pack, placing in only a few races. So he was retired young and won't turn 2 until December 29th. His sire is Crossfire Clyde and his dam is Shana Wookie. Roman is a white boy with red spots that raced at 78lbs. He is a pretty tall guy that is described as being calm and friendly. He passed his cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He has gotten along with all the dogs in his foster home. He has a funny cowlick that runs down his neck that makes his hair stand straight up in a little stripe down the center of this neck, similar to a ridgeback. But his is just on his neck.

Fostered by (location):
Robinson, Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Howell Family of Bluffton SC 9/19/20

Cagney just arrived from Blanchard Kennels at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She only raced 17 races and won only won one of those. Most of the time she finished toward the back of the pack, so was retired early. Cagney is a tiny little light fawn girl that raced at just 53lbs. She still has some lighter colored puppy fuzz that is coming out in a few places and she has a beautiful sleek coat underneath. Cagney will turn 2 on October 12th. Her sire is the famous SH Avatar and her dam is Craigie Testify. Cagney passed her cat test easily. She wouldn't get near the cat and seemed like she had already been around cats before and understood that they had claws. She was also fine with the small dogs she met and seems to have a very low prey drive. She loves being around other dogs and would love to go to a home with another dog to play with. She likes toys and tries to get the small dog in her foster home to play but he is older and just not interested. She seems like a friendly happy sweet girl and will get up in your lap if allowed. Very social, curious and silly. Great with the toddler she has spent time with too.

Fostered by (location):
Strevel, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Adopted the Mangino family of Atlanta GA, 9/18/20

Sookie just arrived after spending more than a week in a Gaffney SC shelter. She was found running loose and was picked up. She was identified by the tattoos in her ears. Sookie had been adopted years ago in Florida by Greyhounds As Pets of NE Florida and that adoption group contacted her owners. The owners decided not to pick her up from the shelter, so we were asked to help with rehoming her. Sookie is a sweet older lady that is 10 years old now. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 57lbs. She turned 10 on May 12th. Her sire is Fuzzy's Cannon and her dam is WBF Sugar Buzz. Her foster family says she is a happy, friendly girl that is well behaved and pretty spunky for an older lady. She has been into our vet at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin and has been given a clean bill of health. She had not had good dental care and had to have most of her teeth removed but other than that she is healthy and very happy. Because she is a senior she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. More as we get to know her.

They lived with cats and small dogs in their home and also lived with some special needs children as well. They are good with everything and very sweet.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Dolan Family of Greenville SC 9/18/20

Stormy just arrived with her best friend Effie. They are both returns from a divorce situation. They were very loved by their family but their schedules make it to where neither can care for the dogs by themselves. Stormy and Effie are very bonded and need to be placed together. Stormy raced 77 races at the Palm Beach Race Track. She was good getting up to A level and was racing in A level in her last race in October of 2019 when she broke her leg. Stormy's leg has been long healed but she still favors it some even a year later. She was sent to the Birmingham AL track adoption group who got her leg fixed and initially placed her. They asked us to help with rehoming her. Stormy is very sweet and friendly. She is very food oriented and doesn't like to share with other dogs so needs to be fed separately. Stormy turned 3 on January 10th. Her sire is Coldwater Keelin and her dam is Royal Mosiac. Stormy has lived with cats, small dogs and small children with special needs in her previous home. She was great with everyone and everything. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Schlentner family of Bluffton, SC 9/13/20

Diamond just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. She never raced or even made it as far as a race track.

Diamond is very young and just turned 1 year old on March 5th. Her sire is Superior Panama and her dam is Kells California. Her foot seemed to already be healing pretty well when we got her and she was putting weight on it most of the time. Diamond has been cleared by our vet to be adopted now. She has a great happy personality and is really sweet. She is playful and loves to snuggle. More as we get to know her.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Spieler Family of Hendersonville NC 9/12/20

Freebird just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race track in Jacksonville FL. She raced most of her races in WV at the Tri State and Wheeling tracks. She was a fantastic racer getting up to the top AA level in Wheeling and that is one of the most competitive tracks. Freebird started slowing down and was sent to Jacksonville in June to see if she could be competitive there. She pulled up and stopped in her last race on August 9th so was retired. Freebird is a stunning tall narrow girl that raced at an XL 71lbs. She is all legs and very tall for a girl and even taller than most boys. Freebird turned 3 on January 19th. Her sire is the very famous Trent Lee and her dam is Easi Play. Freebird is a happy, very outgoing girl. She is missing half her tail, probably because she wags it so much. Greyhounds that are very waggy commonly injure their tails and end up having to have a partial tail amputation. The greyhound community even call it "happy tail". Freedom passed her cat test here without much interest other than a quick sniff. She was much more interested in eating the cat's food. At the track she was more interested in the cat during her test so since she showed interest in one cat we listed her as trainable instead of cat friendly even though she showed no interest in our cat. Freebird is very food motivated so may be great for obedience, agility or trick training. She gets along well with other dogs of all sizes too. A really sweet girl.

Although he raced 55 races, he was never very good, and only won 3 races. Shark mainly raced at the lowest D level. He is the most laid back relaxed dog ever according to his foster dad. Nothing phases him and he just goes with the flow. Very sweet guy! Shark turned 3 on June 12th and is a big guy racing at 80lbs. His sire is Gigawatt and his dam is TB's Flo Rita. Shark passed his cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. More as we get to know this big guy.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Stacherski family of Charlotte NC, 9/7/20

Presley just arrived from Orange Park Race Track. He was with the Greyhounds As Pets of NE Florida track adoption group and was vetted there before coming to us. He raced 118 races but wasn't a great racer. He mainly just placed at the lower D level of racing and only actually won 2 races in his career.  The comment on one of his two wins was "Shocks The World" so he was well known as a dog that never won. Since he placed frequently, he was still able to have a pretty long career without actually winning. Presley is a red male that raced at 72lbs. He passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. Presley was sired by GS Anthony and his dam is GS Addison. More as we get to know him.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the King family of Simpsonville SC, 8/27/20

Homare just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel with her sister Carli Cool. Homare didn't actually race there but was sent there from the Palm Beach Race track when it closed. She only has a schooling race listed at Palm Beach and no official races. It looks like she raced a few races in Iowa before that but finished toward the back of the pack. Homare is a tiny little thing that raced at just 50lbs. She won't turn 2 until September 3rd. Homare's sire is Cheeky Monkey and her dam is Cool Valley. Homare lost interest in the cat after a few sniffs and was polite and well behaved with the small dog she met so should be fine to live with either. She seemed overwhelmed and very calm when she first arrived but has gotten more active and puppyish after a few days. She has been mostly quiet in her kennel but did a little barking at first. So far she hasn't been eating very good, probably due to the stress of everything new. She is a sweet girl that seems like she likes people and other dogs.

Her sire is Turbo Penske and her dam is Flying Snowstorm. She will turn 3 on November 12th. She still needs to be tested with cats, kids and small dogs. More on her personality after she arrives.

Superior Catalpa
Racing Name:
Superior Catalpa
Pet/Kennel Name:
Cate
Age:
5
Color/Gender:
Light Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Halliwell (N. Augusta, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hillgen-Smith family 8/24/20

Catalpa's litter were all named for types of trees with the Superior prefix. She initially came in from the Melbourne Race track 2.5 years ago and has been in an adoptive home since then. Cate also raced some of her 56 races at Derby Lane, Sanford Orlando and Mardi Gras tracks in Florida. She only won 4 races, so was moved around in hopes her owners could find a track that she would be competitive at, but that wasn't to be the case. In her last race she wasn't paying attention and missed the break out of the box. She still managed to come in 6th, but they decided to retire her. Cate raced at 62lbs and is light fawn female that turned 5 on June 27th. She has been in an adoptive home for 2.5 years. Her owner has health issues and is unable to care for Cate, so asked us to help re-home her. Her sire is Shonn and her dam is Superior Tingler. Catalpa is a very friendly girl that was hard to get pictures of because she would run right over for an extreme closeup as soon as she saw anyone come in. She really likes people and is a very happy, outgoing girl. Catalpa passed her cat and small dog tests and has been living with 2 cats and another dog in her adoptive home. She has been living with small children as well and really likes children. The only problem they reported was that they had to put her up in a crate when the kids were eating because Cate would try to steal the food and would growl if anyone tried to take the food away. She also didn't like anyone trying to take her dog food when she was eating. Even though she really likes small kids we think she would do best in a home with older kids that weren't likely to drop food and understood to leave her alone when she is eating. Cate is fine doing a few steps but has never had to do long flights of steps and really isn't comfortable with a lot of stairs. She is fine walking on shiny wood floors. Cate never gets up on the furniture. She is quiet in her crate so could be an apartment dog, if it was a ground floor apartment. She also potties well on leash and walks on leash well, so doesn't need a fenced yard if her new owners were willing to leash walk her to potty. Cate is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. Her owner sent her with her things: a large crate, bed, and collar and leash. Cate is already home acclimated, is up to date on her vetting and is ready to go home.

Age:

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ahl family of St. Mary's GA 8/16/20

Emery just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel. She was in the last load from the now closed Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced her whole career of 76 races there except for one race at Dubuque. She raced mainly at the lower C level but did get up as far as B a couple of times. Emery raced at 61lbs and turned 3 on Feb 1st. Her sire is Barcelona Boss and her dam is XKT Minnie Beets. Emery is a happy outgoing girl. Emery was very interested in the cat and excited by fast movements, but she did back off when the cat hissed and smacked her. She would probably be best in a home with no cats, although she may be cat trainable in a very experienced home with a confident cat. She did not like being alone in the kennel and cried a lot after the other dogs left, so may do best in a home with another dog to hang out with. She has been really good with some of the small dogs in her foster home but there is one that she has been wanting to play with. She may do better with medium sized dogs and larger that would be OK to play with a dog her size, since a really small toy-sized dog may get hurt accidentally. Emery is used to being around her trainers children at the race track so should be fine with kids.

Pistol just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. She is young and never raced. She got tattoos at 3 months old Litter number 73074 and right ear 118E but never completed the registration process and got a registered racing name. She has been called Pistol though. Pistol will turn 2 in November. She has been a little overwhelmed by everything new since this is her first time leaving the farm. Her owner says she is normally very outgoing and with a little time to warm up will be the star of the show and is likely to be almost annoyingly friendly. Pistol is very used to being around small dogs, cats and other animals on the farm she was raised on. She has been completely comfortable with the cats and small dogs she has been around since she arrived too. She has been very quiet in her kennel and kennels well, so may be a good apartment or townhouse dog. Pistol's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Cahillusmarshall. We have placed lots of dogs from her Sire and one half brother that had the same mom named FF Ironman. Pistol has warmed up very fast and is very sweet and outgoing. She is very waggy and wags not just her tail but her whole body. She was vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin SC.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Adams Family of Greenville SC 8/14/20

Blade just arrived 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. 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.

Fostered by (location):
Parker, Pfafftown NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Enright Family of Inman SC 8/7/20

Port just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel. He didn't actually race there but was sent there to be placed with an adoption group since they transport dogs to groups all over the country. Port also raced a few of his 87 races at Tri State in WV. He wasn't a good racer mostly racing at the lower C and D levels and rarely winning but he placed enough to keep his career going. Port's litter were all named for different types of wine. He raced at 78lbs so is a larger guy. He will turn 4 December 16th. His sire is Rico's Vintage and his dam is Flying Navy Seal. Port is a very happy friendly guy who isn't phased or concerned about anything. When he first arrived he was very excitable about everything but he calmed down quickly and is doing well in foster care. He is not trying to mark in the house so far and is doing great on his potty training. He is a very strong guy that needs work on walking nicely on leash, he does pull and wants to check out everything. He passed his cat and small dog test. He was very curious about the cat and spent a lot of time sniffing it but was just as excited about everything else in the room. He didn't try to chase the cat. He should be OK with cats with some initial supervision. He seemed to like the other dogs he met and definitely loves people. Port takes a long time to go potty on leash. He prefers to potty off leash and trots around looking for that perfect spot. For that reason we think he would do best in a home with a fenced yard.

Bemo just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He raced 24 races there and only won 2 of those races. Most of the time he finished 7th or 8th. We also placed a littermate of his Sur La Mer recently. Bemo is a tiny male that raced at just 64lbs. He will turn 3 on October 18. His sire is the famous Hi Noon Hero and his dam is Herecomestippy. Bemo is a friendly happy guy whose owner said he was the most outgoing and social of his entire litter. He is pretty calm for a 2 year old though. He is always bouncy, waggy and happy to see you, but calms down pretty fast. He eats well and always finishes his food and seems pretty food motivated if someone wanted to do trick training or obedience with him. He can be loud at first in his kennel so probably won't be a good apartment or townhouse dog. He does quiet down fast though and has always slept quietly through the night. He can be a bit of a marker so will need to be supervised closely at first. This tiny guy has a lot of personality and has the tendency toward being a bit dramatic, yelping if he even thinks something may hurt him. Fun boy that is going to make an excellent pet.

Hometown just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track Closing. He also raced about half of his 88 races at Orange Park in FL. He was pretty good racing most of his races in Birmingham at the top A level. He lost interest in racing back in October and was finishing at the back of the pack. He had several months off and started racing again in February. His break hadn't made him more excited about chasing the lure. He continued to come in at the back of the pack and Fell in one of his races and then stopped and never finished his last race on February 12th.

Blaze will turn 3 on October 19th so he is still pretty young. He was retired from racing due to the Birmingham Track closing down. He also raced about half of his 40 races at Tri State in WV. He wasn't a great racer and only managed to win 3 of his races. Blaze is a friendly guy that seems to like everyone he meets. He happily greeted the small dog he met and wagged his tail and sniffed the cats and seemed to do his best to make friends. He liked the small kids he met briefly too. He raced at 71lbs. He is a strong guy that pulls some on the leash because he is curious about everything and wants to go say Hi to everyone he sees. He is doing better with his foster family on walks already and just pulls at first when he is excited. Blaze's tail wags happily most of the time. He loves to chase balls and loves to run and play in his foster's yard. He was whiny at first but is quieting down now but still may not be a good apartment dog. More as we get to know him.

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. She passed her cat test with just some sniffing and would back away from the cat when it approached and rubbed on her. Tad came in with a note attached to her paperwork from her trainer: "Tad is very special, she's a little strange but awesome". She is not going to work for apartment living since she can be loud when left alone and she appears to have some separation anxiety. 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. She would do best in a home with other dogs to keep her company so she isn't completely alone when her people leave.

Indy came in from the Orange Park Race Track due to a broken leg. He was quite the racers quickly moving up to the top A level and even competing in a few Stakes races. He raced 50 races and raced his last race March 8th at A level. Races were stopped because of Covid 19 but the dogs still had to run unofficial schooling races to maintain their fitness and he injured his leg in one of the practice runs. He had surgery in Jacksonville before we got him. He is having his splint changes and rehab with us. It usually takes 6 to 12 weeks for a break to heal so he should be ready for adoption sometime in June. He is a sweet guy that falls asleep during splint changes. He is a really good boy that is pretty laid back and friendly. Indy will turn 3 on November 3rd. His sire is Lenson Sanchez and his dam is WW's Federation.

Shock just arrived from the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel. She didn't actually race there, but was sent there to be placed with one of the adoption groups they send dogs to after the Palm Beach Race Track shut down suddenly. Her last race was May 9th. Shock had a very long career of 186 races, all at Palm Beach and most at the top A level. She even was good enough to be chosen to race in a couple of big Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. Shock raced at 66lbs and is a tall narrow girl that is taller than some of the smaller boys. She is gorgeous with long legs and a tiny waist and ears that stand straight up. Shock will turn 5 on August 8th. Her sire is SE's Jet Fuel and her dam is JS Grand Prix. She passed her cat test with some initial interest but when the cat slapped her she wouldn't go near it again. She was great with the small dog she met. She liked the kids she met too. Shock is excellent on leash and seems to be a pretty calm girl that made a little noise the first day in her kennel, but has been pretty quiet since then. She seems like a calm, well behaved girl that is pretty friendly. She seems like a sensitive girl that responds well to the slightest correction. She did great in her kennel on the ride to and from the vet and just laid down quietly. She fussed about the other dogs stepping on her when she was transported out of the crate with a couple of other females.

Amy came from the Sanford Orlando Race Track closing. She has been fostered by her racing owner in NC since, so has already been home acclimated for awhile. Amy raced 38 races and also raced briefly at the Palm Beach Race track. She wasn't very good only winning a few times at the lowest D level. Amy raced at 66lbs. She won't turn 3 until Nov 25th. Her sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and her dam is Flying Unrest. Amy LOVES people and attention. She also loves other dogs and wants to cuddle with other dogs on their beds. She has no sense of personal space and wants to be as close as possible to snuggle. She likes to be with her humans and is quiet during the day just hanging out where she can see people. She is learning to play fetch and loves running around in the yard with her housemates.  She goes in her crate willingly to eat her meals and likes to lay in her crate with the door open. She does make noise in the crate when the door is closed, so would not be a good apartment dog. She does well with her potty training during the day, but does still have accidents if left out of the crate all night, so needs some more work. Her owner thinks she may do best in a home with other dogs since she loves being around them and playing with them so much. Although Amy is friendly towards kids she meets and seems to like them, we need to place Amy in a home with no kids. She snapped at a child over a bowl of cereal after being placed with a young kid in her first home. So now she is looking for another home with no small kids. Amy's foster home says she is their favorite foster and she is just perfectly behaved. They would keep her if they could.

Bowsta was turned over to a Columbia Animal Shelter by his former family. All we know is that he was called Bowsta and that this family had him since he was very young. We checked his tattoos, which were hard to read, but it looks like he is most likely Craigie Bowie. Bowsta raced just 2 races at the Palm Beach Race Track and looks like he was adopted from there, because he does have a microchip linking him to that area. He retired from there August 3rd of 2009 so probably has been in a home since before he was 2 years old. He was born on Nov 1st of 2007 so will turn 13 on November 1st of this year. Because Bowsta is a senior he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is Craigie Bouquet. Bowsta is thin for a greyhound so needs to put on a few lbs. He has a very furry coat that looks like he may have lived outside recently. Bowsta is neutered already. His teeth look pretty good for his age but will have a fresh cleaning and will have any bad teeth removed before placement. He will be up to date on all shots and have bloodwork done to be sure he is healthy. More as we get to know him.

King just arrived from the Birmingham Alabama Race Course closing. We were waiting on him to arrive before the track closed because he is the suspected sire of a recent litter of puppies that we raised. King does look a lot like some of the litter. We were very excited to meet him. He raced a total of 46 races and also raced briefly at Orange Park and Daytona Beach in Florida but only was able to win one race. When he didn't win races at those tracks he was moved to Birmingham in January and met a cute girl on the haul and a few months later, on March 4th he became the dad of 6 pups. He did win some races before the track closed and had gotten up to B level. His sire is Defrim Bale and his dam is PJ Just A Dream. King was a kennel favorite of his trainer. She said he was absolutely the best boy. He was a grinner that would smile and follow her around. He was very devoted to her but she said he did take a few days to warm up and could be just a little timid at first. He has been friendly and happy since we got him though, so much so that his foster home decided to keep him after he had only been at their house for a couple of hours.

Pointer is a fawn female with a black face that raced at 63lbs. She will turn 4 on December 6th. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is Runningshoeson. She passed her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. More as we get to know her.

Tic Toc is arriving soon from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. The track closed suddenly due to the Corona Virus. Tic Toc was just starting out her career and had only raced 18 races. She just won 2 of those. She is a young girl that won't turn 2 until July 16th. She is brindle and raced at 64lbs. Her sire is SE Tali Sundance. Her mom is also up for adoption currently, AMF Ex Hunter. Tic Toc passed her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. Since her mom has the eye condition pannus, that can be hereditary, it is possible that Tic Toc will need daily eye drops to prevent her from losing her sight. Our vets will check her when she arrives for any sign of the eye condition. More as we get to know her.

Dove just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track. She didn't actually race there though. She raced at Blanchard Kennel at Tri State in WV, at the Dubuque Track and very briefly at Southland in Arkansas. She only had 38 races total but did win a few of those and got up to B level once. She raced her last race on March 12th in WV and actually won that one. Dove will turn 3 on July 3rd and raced at 67lbs. She is very outgoing and happy and goes straight up to new people. She does try to jump up on people so needs some work on that. Dove passed her cat test without much interest after some initial sniffing. She liked the kids she met. Dove's sire is Crown and Crest and her dam is Arkans Bd Sky. Very sweet beautiful girl.

Beef Taco just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course where he raced all his 94 races. He was a good racer racing most of his races at the top A level. He retired from the top A level July 2nd after pulling a muscle. He has completely recovered now and has no sign of any pain or injury now. Beef Taco's entire litter was named for types of tacos: Fish, Soft, Hard etc. They were born June 12th of 2015 so just turned 3. Beef Taco's sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Flying Animals. He raced at 67lbs so is a smaller male. Beef Taco is a very friendly guy whose tail wags a lot. Very happy, outgoing and sweet. Taco has had mixed results with cats passing a couple of cat tests but was not able to resist a running cat in an adoptive home even with a couple of weeks of work. So Taco needs a home with no cats. Taco is usually quiet in his kennel and has lived in a townhouse. He has done great as an only dog too. He is good on leash and potties well on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. Taco has been in a foster home with a 15lb Italian greyhound and has done well with him after a short adjustment time so he may do fine with dogs that size and up.   Update!  Taco is available once again for adoption through no fault of his own.  His owners have made the difficult decision to return him to GC in search of his next family match.  We'll update his information as soon as we can.

Lesko, Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Farthing Family of Asheville NC, 6.13.20

Direx just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Group. He never actually raced in Birmingham and was just sent to them to place from the Southland Race Track in Arkansas. He also raced at Valley Race Track, Mardi Gras, and Dubuque. He raced 128 races and was a very good racer getting up to A level and even racing in Stakes races. Southland is probably the most competitive track in the country so you have to be good to race there and one of the faster dogs in the country to win there. Direx is truly a star. He raced 128 races. He raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized male. He just turned 5 on May 3rd. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Slatex Selene. Direx is very sweet and very outgoing. He wags lot. He passed his cat test with some initial curiosity but as soon as the cat swatted him he backed right up and wanted nothing more to do with it. He learned stairs quickly and seems to be settling in well. Already relaxed and laying on his back with his feet up in the air which is what we call a roach and something that only comfortable relaxed dogs do.

Dart

Dart
Pet/Kennel Name:
Dart
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng, Columbia Sc
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Plymale family of Augusta GA, 6.13.20

Dart just arrived from the Roban farm in Florida where she was being trained to race. She is really young and won't even turn 2 until November 27th. She was never officially registered and never got a registered name. She was tattooed at 3 months of age though Right ear is 118F and left ear is 73158. She went to race training but flunked that because she is exceptionally shy, what we call a spook. Spooks are usually genetically shy, anxious dogs that are afraid of everything new, much like a person with severe social anxiety. Dart has three littermates that are not as shy, that are registered to race Mergen For Prez, RTSS Cherub Rock and RTSS Zamboni Man. We just placed a half sister by the same mom named She'sLikeNoOther and she is a very friendly social girl. Dart's sire is Superior Panama and her dam is PJ Hardnottolike. Dart is exceptionally fearful of everything new. She loves her crate and feels safe there and doesn't want to come out even for potty breaks. Eventually she will slowly come out, but then she will try to bolt away from the person holding the leash. She is being leash walked to potty by her foster mom inside her fenced backyard because she is too fearful to be caught. If her foster mom moves fast or steps on a twig Dart bolts and she tries to stay as far away from her as she can while on leash. Dart is a dog that will warm up with time to her people in her home but it isn't uncommon for a dog like this to take a year to get comfortable or longer. Dart must have a securely fenced yard because of the danger of her bolting when on leash and getting away. She is going to be a long term project though and isn't going to just become a happy, social dog in a week or two or even a month or two. Dart is never likely to enjoy going into unfamiliar environments outside her home and will always be a homebody. Dart will need a quiet home that doesn't have many visitors and one without small loud kids. Visitors and loud kids (and their toys and friends) would be terrifying to a dog like her. Dart likes other dogs and really would do best in a home with at least one other confident, friendly dog to follow around. A buddy usually helps spooky dogs be more comfortable. Dart may never be a social butterfly that will happily greet you at the door but the spooks can be very rewarding when you do finally gain their trust. Dart needs a forever home that will accept her as she is and not expect her to change. We want a family that is in it for the long haul, that will work with her no matter what and is committed to keeping a dog forever. Being returned and having to start over with a new family would be too difficult for Dart.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Willow
Age:
3 months
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC and Clark Simpsonville
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kovacs Family of Easley SC 6/13/20

Willow is one of a litter of pups that was born after we got a pregnant female from the Birmingham race track. Mom's name is She'sLikeNoOther (Beauty). We are not sure how she got knocked up but they think it happened when she was moved from a track in Florida to Birmingham in January and they think the dad was Apology Excepted because he was her traveling companion. We got her in February when she started showing. She had 6 healthy pups on March 4th. Willow was the 3rd pup born and weighed 12.5 ounces when she was born and 12 lbs 5 oz at 8 weeks old. All the pups are friendly and social and were raised using the Puppy Culture Protocol. They all know to sit for food and treats and are trained to use a litterbox. Most of them will also potty on leash. The pups have been around kids and toddlers since birth so are very used to children. They also lived with a small dogs and have been introduced to cats. All the pups were introduced to a variety of people of different ages and sizes and have been well socialized to people and things they may come in contact with in the home environment. Greyhound puppies are not like the calm adult greyhounds we love. They are very high energy when young and need large fenced yards to run and play in to build strong bones and muscles. They need complete supervision like a toddler because everything goes in their mouth and gets chewed or eaten. They can be very destructive if their energy isn't drained through play and acceptable forms of exercise. Greyhound puppies are like any other puppy when small, but they quickly grow to full size and may weigh 50 to 80lbs by 8 months old. At that age they can run around 40 mph but are still huge clumsy pups. Greyhound puppies bite and play very rough. They require a lot of training and need experienced homes with room to run.
