Show Time just arrived as a result of all the tracks closing in Florida. She raced a few races at Southland in Arkansas but moved to Derby Lane in Florida and raced most of her 55 races there. She got up to the top A level briefly and had dropped down to C level by the time she was forced to retire. Her last race was December 26th. Show Time raced at 61lbs and is a gorgeous red brindle female. She will turn 3 on March 29th. Her sire is Show On The Road and her dam is PJ Nuke Em. She has been described as the 'perfect greyhound' by her foster family. She is affectionate, intelligent, comes to you when she needs to go outside to potty and has had no accidents in the house at all. She gets along well with the other greyhound in the house and likes to play with toys. Show Time walks beautifully on leash and the only time she pulls is when she sees another dog. She loves other dogs and gets very excited wanting to meet them. She has not been tested with cats or small dogs yet. She is working on mastering the steps in her foster home. More as we get to know her.

Peony is coming to us from the Orange Park adoption group. Her litter were all named for flowers. She only raced 8 races at Orange Park and only won one of those. She mainly finished at the back of the pack. Her last race was December 5th. She was vetted by the adoption group at the track and was initially placed by them. Although she passed her cat test at the track, she did not do as well with the cat in her adoptive home and was returned to the adoption group there. So she is being sent to us and is looking for a home with no kitties. Peony raced at 60lbs. She is a very young girl that won't turn 2 until May 6th. Her sire is Seldom Told and her dam is JW Snoopy. She is a little timid and needs to gain some confidence.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Goldie
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Halliwell, Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ezrine family of Burlington NC, 1.23.21

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

Tkel Ritz
Racing Name:
Tkel Ritz
Pet/Kennel Name:
Ritzy
Age:
Almost 3
Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Davis Family of Abbeville SC, 1.19.21

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

I'm Bandit
Racing Name:
I'm Bandit
Pet/Kennel Name:
Bandit
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Light Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Sellner (Wagener, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Robertson family of Columbia SC, 1.16.21

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

Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kuehne Family of Washington IL 1/16/21

Reggie is one of the very last retired racers arriving from Florida tracks that have been gradually closing the last 2 years. He raced just 5 races at Derby Lane and finished toward the back of the pack in all 5. He raced at 71lbs and is a pretty small guy. Reggie will turn 2 on March 13th and is a gorgeous black guy. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He is coming in with his littermates Irvin Irving and Harry Bosch. The litter were all named for the Harry Bosch books and TV series. Reggie passed his cat test easily with only some curious sniffing and is doing good with the cats in his foster home. He was also good with a small dog he met. He can be a little vocal and barks sometimes when he sees or hears something outside so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. He is a friendly, happy guy that seems like he loves people. He put his head on the shoulder of the driver for much of the trip up from Florida. He liked the small kids he met too.
