He took a break from racing starting August 2nd due to a hind muscle injury and although that healed up great the decision was just made to retire him permanently. Eyes just turned 3 on September 8th. His sire is Eyes Loaded and his dam is O Ya Miss Fifi. Eyes was raised on a farm in Kansas. He is a big, calm, sweet guy according to his trainer. He passed his cat test easily. Initially a little curious and sniffed the cat, but after the cat smacked him, he walked out of the room. More as we get to know him.

She was so fast that her finishes were described as Electrifying, Cyclonic, Explosive, and Super Sonic. Unless she was bumped, blocked or actually fell, she almost always won. A true superstar that was retired at the top A level in November of 2015. She went back to the farm to have pups then. We got to meet some of them on one of our group's track trips. Now she has been retired from mom duties and is available for adoption. She turned 5 on January 12th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Fuzzys Autumn.

Rudy is just coming in from the Orange Park Race Track. He didn't actually race there though. He raced all of his 30 races at the Lester Raines Kennel at Wheeling Downs in WV. He was actually very good getting up to the top AA level there. His last race there was at the top AA level in July. He was was taken out of racing at that point because of an injury and rehabbed in hopes he could return to racing later. He was moved to Jacksonville to a slower track to finish out his career, but never returned to his former speed so has been retired. Rudy is a smaller male racing at 68lbs. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Kelsos Jenna. Rudy passed his cat test without much interest at all. When he first arrived he seemed just a little timid and overwhelmed.

His sire is Go Wild Teddy and his dam is Kelso's Jenna. Tor is settling in nicely to foster care. He loves the kids in his foster home. He was just a little overwhelmed at first with all the change in his life but warms up fast and loves attention. He will just stand next to you for petting for as long as you will pet him. He gets along great with the other two large male dogs in his foster home and also did great with smaller dogs he met. He even allowed puppies to jump all over him, so seems to have a very sweet temperament. Tor passed his cat test easily too, without much interest. He loves going for walks and is very good on leash. Tor seems like a calm guy that will be a great pet. He is a very handsome, black guy with one cute floppy ear that doesn't always match the other. He is very cute and sweet!

Fostered by (location):
Huntington, Anderson SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lydolph Family of Davidson NC 10/27/18

Nosey came in initially from the Birmingham Alabama Race Track. She was sent to the greyhound adoption group there because they transport thousands of retired greyhounds to adoption groups all over the country every year. She actually raced in Daytona Beach FL. She has 26 races listed and raced at 64lbs. She is young and won't turn 3 until March 10th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen, that one of our volunteers adopted after he retired. Her dam is AMF Set Aside. Nosey won a few races in her short career and wasn't bad. She is a sweet girl that is pretty calm for a younger girl. She is excellent on leash and travels very well. Nosey was a little interested in the cat at first but lost interest quickly and has been living with cats in her foster home. Nosey is good with dogs of all sizes and lived with a small Italian Greyhound. She does fuss about being in her kennel some when by herself, so may not do well as an apartment or townhouse dog. Nosey was in a home for a few months and they called her Winnie. They did not have a fenced yard so had to be leash walked to go potty. She didn't like going potty on leash and prefers to go in a fenced area where she can sniff around and find the perfect spot. She started getting very dramatic about being taken outside to potty and would scream and cry. Now that she has a fenced yard to go in and doesn't have to go for lots of long walks every day, she is enjoying walks again. No more drama and no more accidents. She loves having the other dogs around and seems to be a follower that enjoys the company of others. She is a very sweet loving girl that just must have a fenced yard. Because of her dramatic nature we think she would do better in a home without very young kids that might bother her or fall on her. She seems to like small kids just fine when she meets them and for short visits though.

Minnie just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course. She only raced one of her 49 races there though. Minnie traveled around to quite a few tracks. She started out at Dubuque in IA, then went to Wheeling Downs in WV, Gulf in TX and Orange Park in FL then finally Birmingham AL. She did get up to A level once at Orange park but just wasn't a good racer so moved around a lot looking for a place where she would be competitive. Minnie will turn 3 on November 28th and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is WW's Whiteclover. Minnie is a shy girl at first but warms up fast. She seems to be little more shy with men than kids and females. She is being fostered with a calm 8 year old child. With most timid dogs are a little too timid around very loud fast moving small kids. Minnie travels well. She is excellent on leash and goes potty on leash walks so may do OK without a fenced yard.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Brenot, Raleigh NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Janssen Family of Camden SC 10/23/18

Hooyah is an extra large, red brindle, male that came in from the Melbourne Race Track in FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras. Hooyah only raced 11 races, winning only one of those and usually finishing toward the back of the pack. He was retired young when he was just 2 years old. He has been in an adoptive home since June of 2017 and they were calling him Butler but he also answers to Big Guy or Big Boy. Hooyah celebrated his 3rd birthday on March 19th. He raced at a whopping 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. Hooyah is a calm, well behaved guy. He wanted to snuggle on the car trip and stood with his head on the driver's shoulder a lot of the trip. He is fine with cats and good with small and large dogs in his foster homes. Hooyah is quite friendly with adults and children too. He has only a couple of big fears, shiny floors and stairs. This is true of most greyhounds that have not seen shiny floors or stairs at the race track. Both would be considered hazards for racers, so they are just not something that most greyhounds have ever seen. Most relax after a few successful trips down stairs or across a shiny floor, but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after living in a home with some shiny floors and stairs for a year, he prefers to avoid them. A home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs would be Hooyah's dream home.  We have found that Hooyah is more confident with shiny floors when wearing non slip boots on his feet, and he looks very cute in them too. Hooyah can do 4 or 5 porch stairs to get outside, but longer flights of stairs are scary for him. He has a very unusual brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side but lot more brindle striping on the other. He looks like a completely different colored dog depending on which side you are looking at. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference.  Hooyah is very good about doing his business outside on leash, so doesn't require a fenced yard. He hasn't had one accident in his foster home. He is always happy to see his foster mom or dad come home from work and bounces happily for a minute then, but is otherwise very calm. Hooyah is very friendly and loving. He was in an adoptive home for awhile so is already home acclimated. Hooyah was returned because he would whine sometimes and his owners thought he may have some type of pain in his neck or back that was causing the whining. Hooyah has not shown any sign of having any pain since we got him back. He whines occasionally like a normal dog, but not like he is in any pain. We kept him for observation for over a month and took him to our vet to be examined to be sure. Our vets have cleared him for adoption because they have found nothing wrong with him other than being overweight. We have him on a diet and he is getting back down close to what he should weigh. Hooyah is a very affectionate, sweet, sensitive guy that will be a very loving pet.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gaddy family of Cornelius, NC 10.21.18

Prudent just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. She also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV. She raced 150 races and got up to B Level. Prudent is a mostly white female with some brindle spots that raced at 64lbs. She will turn 4 on Christmas Day. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and her dam is Flying Sage. She was too interested in cats at first meeting at the track so they didn't think she would be OK with them. When we introduced her to our cat she remembered cats had claws and wouldn't get near it after the first time the cat swatted her. She only wanted to get out of the room and away from that scary cat. Since she did great in our cat test, but was interested at her first meeting, we listed her as trainable with cats. Prudent also did OK with the small dog she met. She has a wonderful, very outgoing personality. Very friendly and loving and will give you lots of kisses. She was loud in her crate at first but did quiet down except to let you know when she needs to go outside. She may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog though. Prudent is a happy, bouncy girl that is energetic and fun.

Fostered by (location):
McManis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fox family of Aiken SC 10/20/18

Boomer is a brindle boy that raced at 72lbs. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Speedy Petal. He only raced 18 races at Southland in Arkansas and broke his hock October 3 of 2013, back when he was only 2. The break was splinted there by a vet and he was sent to us for rehab. Our vets also checked his leg and agreed that he would heal up fine in a splint and the break wouldn't require surgery. Boomer's break healed up nicely and he was adopted in December of 2013. He was returned to us for rehoming in 2017 because of financial problems, that made a move in with relatives necessary. Boomer was adopted quickly then and has been in a home for over a year. Boomer has just been returned again because his mom's health is failing. She is no longer able to care for him. This sweet boy has just had some bad luck over the years. Boomer likes to go on short walks and is great on leash. He can run around and do whatever he feels like doing, but probably wouldn't enjoy long hikes or jogs due to the old injury. He does favor the leg sometimes. Boomer turned 7 on August 11th. He is a sweet, very calm boy that is very good and already home acclimated. He is a little timid at first and a bit overwhelmed but warms up. He is very lazy and is happy to just have a soft dog bed to lay on. He isn't a dog that follows you or bothers you for attention. Boomer potties nicely on leash so may not need a fenced yard. He is a gorgeous, brindle boy with the prettiest eyes. Boomer has lived with cats and small dogs in his first home. When Boomer was first with us he loved his crate and was very quiet in it while he was on crate rest for the broken leg. He was so quiet in his crate we felt he may be a great apartment dog. He would probably not be able to do a lot of stairs due to his old injury and would at least need an apartment on the ground floor. He would be perfect for someone that didn't have much time or energy for walking and exercising dogs. His former owner says he loves kids and she is hoping that he gets a home with a child. The pictures are from when he first arrived and was younger.

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Tompkins Weldy family of Simpsonville SC 10/20/18

Sweet Senior! Kwanza was a super star when he was racing. He was the Winner of the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Middle Distance Championship and placed 3rd in the 2010 Tri-State WVGOBA Open Sprint. He raced 80 races at Tri-State and Wheeling winning at the top A and AA levels and competing in many Stakes races reserved for the best racers at those tracks. He was retired from racing in December of 2011 and has been at his owners farm since then. He had to have a toe amputated on his front foot at some point which is pretty common in pet greyhounds if they dislocate or break a toe. It is long healed and isn't even noticeable unless you are counting toes. Since the painful toe was removed there is nothing there to cause pain and he can run and play normally. Kwanza did sire one litter of pups back in 2015 but they weren't great racers like he was, so it doesn't look like he sired any more pups after that. He has been just hanging out at the farm as a pet until now. Kwanza raced at 72lbs and is short and stocky. His sire is Larking About and his dam is Myokie Flame. We got his half brother, Axe - Rico's Pollax, at the same time. Both have the same mom. We already placed two half sisters Rico's Tignanello and Rico's By A Nose (also same mom). Kwanza turned 10 on January 31st. Since Kwanza is a senior guy over 8 he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Kwanza passed his cat tests with some initial interest that only last until the cat slapped him. Then we couldn't pull him back to the cat. We think he would be easily trainable with a confident cat. Kwanza walks perfectly on a loose leash and doesn't pull. He gets along really well with other greyhounds. He has been completely vetted and had a dental and a few tooth extractions and is in good health and is ready for a loving home.

Lane, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Mowery Family of Waynesboro PA 10/20/18

Eugene just arrived from a Florida farm where he has been living since he retired from racing in March of 2018. He raced mainly at the lower levels but did get up to B level a few times in his 57 races. He raced most of his career at D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane, but also raced briefly at Gulf. Most 4 year olds would have a lot more races. Eugene was taken out of racing for a year from December 5th of 2016 and not put back into racing until Nov of 2017 after a collision and fall in a race. He went back and had 15 more races after his year long break. Eugene is a gorgeous 71lb black male. He came in specifically for an adopter that owned his uncle and made arrangements with his trainer to adopt him through us. So Eugene is not available for adoption at this time. He is the sweetest, most gentle boy, that gives kisses to humans and other dogs alike when he meets them. He passed his cat test easily and has been fine with a small dog too. He likes kids and everyone else he meets. He pulls on leash some, curiously checking things out. He is a calm guy in the house though and very well behaved. He crates really well but does whine sometimes, so probably wouldn't be quiet enough for townhouse or apartment living. At the track, some of the other boys would bully him and he didn't even defend himself. His track trainers ended up always turning him out with one or two other gentle boys like him, rather than with the larger pack of more rowdy males. Eugene will turn 4 on September 26th. His Sire is Makeshift and his dam is Celtic Dream.

Parker just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He raced all of his 99 races there and was a good racer. He mainly raced at the top A level and won quite a few races. Parker raced at 68lbs so is a smaller guy. He just turned 3 on September 22nd. Parker's sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is WW's Rock Star. Parker is a very calm, easy going guy. Although he resists going in his kennel at first, once he is in there he crates quietly and is being fostered in a townhouse. Parker is excellent on leash. He gets along great with the other greyhounds in his foster home, male and female. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be fine to live with either. He also travels really well. We were told that Parker was a little shy when he first arrived at the track but he warmed up to his trainers within 2 weeks and followed them around and was their best friend once he warmed up. He has been a little jumpy with his foster mom if she moves fast or is loud, but he comes when called and will take food out of your hand with no problem, so isn't too shy. Parker seems like a very sweet guy that would be an easy first or fourth greyhound and he is so handsome. Those eyes just draw you in!!

Ally just arrived from a dog farm in Arkansas. She raced 70 races mostly at Wheeling Downs in WV and was very good getting up to the top AA levels at one of the toughest tracks. She also raced briefly at Southland. After she retired in January of 2018, she went back to the farm to be a mom. She had just one puppy a few weeks ago. It was too big and she had trouble having it. The puppy didn't make it and her owners decided to just retire her instead of having more litters. Ally will turn 4 on January 6th. Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is Cidina. She raced at 65lbs. She is pretty good on leash and potties on leash so may do fine with potty walks instead of having a fenced yard. Ally travels really well and just gets in the car and lays down. She is calm in her crate. She can be just a little timid when she first meets you but did great at a busy shopping area and was very happy to let people come up and pet her. She just didn't go up to the people asking to be petted. She does like kids and gets more excited to see them than adults. She is a grinner that smiles when excited. She warms up very fast and was very happy to see us and waggy after just one day. She has a fantastic calm personality. Ally was interested in the first cat she met, but after that was fine with the other cats she met and not interested in them at all. She even walked nicely past several ducks. Ally has the glossiest, gorgeous, black coat. She had an injury to her tail when she was young so now has a cute little nub that is only about 3 inches long. She thinks it makes her even cuter and she doesn't have to worry about it getting shut in a door or gate like other greyhounds.

Sammy did not pass her cat test so needs a home without them. She was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound she met. She does seem to need careful introductions to small to medium fuzzier dogs though. She tends to mistake fuzzy things for bunnies until she sniffs them and figures out what they are. Sammy travels well. She can be a little loud in her kennel at first so probably would not be a good apartment dog. More as we get to know her.

Throttle just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course. He never actually raced there though. The adoption group there just gets retired greyhounds from other tracks to transport to vet and distribute to other adoption groups. Throttle actually raced at Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Palm Beach and Orange Park in Florida. He raced 62 races and only won 3 of those. Throttle was moved around in hopes he would find a track he where he would be competitive, but finally was retired. He is a mostly white boy with a few brindle spots and one ear that flips over sometimes. He raced at 71lbs.Throttle turned 3 on March 7th. He is friendly and waggy. He loves to give kisses and seems to be really fond of children. He is very quiet in his kennel so may be a good apartment dog. He also potties nicely on leash so may do fine without a fenced yard being leash walked. Throttle travels well and is really sweet. He passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. His sire is Makeshift and his dam is HI Noon G Thang.

Levi came in from the Ebro Race Track. He also raced at Sarasota, Sanford Orlando, Flagler and Naples Ft Myers. Levi wasn't a very good racer and was moved from track to track in hopes he would find a track that he could be competitive at. He ended up winning only 4 of his 48 races so eventually was retired. Levi raced at 73lbs and his sire is P's Gibbs and dam is Gable Charolais. He turned 3 on March 7th. Levi liked the kids in his foster home and was very good with them but growled a few times at a 10 year old girl in an adoptive home after being OK for about a month, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no kids. Levi passed his small dog test easily so could live with them, but has had mixed results with cats and has been too interested in some cats he has met but OK with others. He probably should have a home without cats, just to be safe.  Levi is a friendly, social, happy guy that loves being with his people. He follows his foster parents around and loved going to the Farmers Market and getting attention from all the people there.

Adoption Status: Adopted to the Cozier Family of Greenville SC 10/2/18

Bianca is a young, beautiful, red, girl that turned 2 on February 2nd. She raced at 68lbs. Bianca started out her career at Southland in Arkansas but wasn't fast enough for that really tough track, so she was moved to D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane in Florida. She did much better at that track and was winning, but she hurt her leg in her 12th race (on May 2nd), so was retired. She was sent to a farm in Florida to rehab her leg then and has been there for the last 5 months. Now her leg is healed up and she is ready to start her second career as a pet. She is going to make a great pet! She is fun, energetic and has a lot of personality. She is very happy and loving with a tail that wags most of the time. She is settling in very quickly and was already relaxing by laying at her foster mom's feet after the first day. Although she is happy and bouncy at first, she does settle well and sleeps a lot of the day like a typical greyhound. She can be a little whiny in her kennel so may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog. Bianca did not pass her cat test and was way too interested in chasing the cat so needs a home without kitties. She was fine with the small white dog she met, but needed to sniff it and realize it was a dog. She is a smart girl that is so gorgeous! She LOVES children. We have her listed as older children only just because she was so excited to play with the toddlers she met that she was bouncing and bumping into them. She would be great in a home that had slightly older kids that were big enough that she could play with them without knocking them down. She is just a strong girl that gets excited at first when meeting people and kids. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Saluted.

Ella just arrived from Figuroa Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She was owned by Lisa Wheeler. Ella raced 46 races at Derby Lane, Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando Race Tracks in Florida. She raced mainly at the lower levels and only won a few races so she was retired pretty young. Her sire is Surf Lorian and her dam is Monoco Gold. Ella is a cute 67lb brindle female that just turned 3 on September 9th. She is very friendly and happy and seems to like kids and everyone else she has met. She loves her food and is a very good eater. Very good on leash and very affectionate. Ella loves squeaky toys and likes to play. She is a bit higher energy than the average greyhound so will be a lot of fun and won't be a total couch potato. She was much too interested in cats to pass her cat test - we tested her twice to be sure. She did fine with a small white dog after she sniffed and realized it was just a dog and not the bunny it looked like. She is very social and very sweet. She is doing great in her foster home. She was a little loud in her crate at first but is getting better. She is probably not going to be a good apartment dog though.

Nickle just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at Palm Beach. She raced most of her 114 races at Tri-State in West Virginia though. She was a very good racer, racing at the top AA level at Tri-State. She is a very unusual black brindle girl that at first glance looks completely black. If you look close you can see faint orange stripes barely visible in her fur though. Nickle raced at 64lbs. She will turn 4 on November 23rd. Her sire is the famous Defrim Bale from Australia and her dam is Big Ego. Nickle passed her cat test easily without much interest. She also passed her small dog test easily so should be able to live with either. She is a bit overwhelmed by all the changes in her life but is calmly friendly and will stand next to you to be petted and will look up into your eyes with the sweetest expression on her face. She was a little whiny in her crate but did quiet down eventually. She may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog though. She seems like a very calm girl. She is pretty good on leash too. Nickle has a broken rib on one side, what they call the floating rib, that is the last one before her waist. It is a very old injury from when she was a tiny pup. It can happen if a pup is stepped on by the mother or during the birthing process. It does make a noticeable bump on one side. Our vet didn't believe it needed to be removed since it is such an old injury and is not causing her any pain.

PJ Bad Boy is definitely not the right name for this very sweet, good boy, but he was actually called Moses at the track. Moses came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced at Mardi Gras and Palm Beach. He is a smaller male that raced at just 68lbs. Moses had a pretty long career of 108 races and retired on June 22nd 2018. Moses did get up to the top A level at that track. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is Ucme Mini Me. Moses will turn 4 on October 5th. He is very a friendly, happy guy and his foster mom says he is a wonderful guy that is an easy foster. He is living in a foster home with kids and loves being around them. He is also living with cats in his foster home and is fine with them. The only reason he is listed as trainable is because he was more interested in a hairless cat he met but of course he didn't have any way to know that was even a cat.  Moses loves toys and is playful. He travels well. He is very well behaved and has good house manners. At night he sleeps next to his foster mom on a dog bed. He also crates well.

Sweet Senior! Witty is a girl that was originally placed by another group up North, NGAP, years ago. Her owner moved to NC and was only able to keep two of her dogs where she moved and had to re-home Witty. She said that Witty is a goofy, playful girl that is really sweet. Witty retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2012. She raced 55 races there and only won 2 of those. She did place some, even if she didn't win, so was able to keep racing for a little while. Witty is an adorable black female that is starting to get white in circles around her eyes giving her a very cute goggle look. Witty raced at 65lbs and turned 9 on April 16th. Since she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250. Her sire is Tempo Petrocelli and her dam is LookButDontTouch. Witty was already spayed, but she just got a fresh dental, blood work, heart worm test and anything else she needs and has a clean bill of health. Witty injured her tail at some point previously and had to have it removed so she has a cute little nub now. WItty is a sweet girl that is friendly and silly. She is getting along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is good with small dogs as well and passed her cat test without much interest so should be fine to live in a home with either.

Lip just arrived from Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is a gorgeous, rare, all white, male with only some tiny speckles on his ears and no actual spots. He raced 148 races. Lip was a pretty good racer and got up to the top A level briefly a couple of times during his career. He was mainly competitive at the lower levels. Lipp raced at 73lbs. His sire is Hi Noon Hero and his dam is Atascocita Dory. LIpp passed his cat test without much more than an ear prick in the cat's direction so should be OK to live with cats. He is also good with small dogs. He loves having other dogs around and they seem to help his confidence, so we would love to find a home for him with another dog. Lip can be a little timid at first in new situations. He seems like he is a sweet, sensitive guy that startles easily. A small child threw a toy for another dog and it scared him. Lipp wouldn't come out of his crate if any of the small kids were around for a couple of days after that. His foster dad came home late and night and surprised him. Lipp didn't want him to come near him for a couple days after that. Lipp loves his foster mom and likes to stay close to her. He did gradually warm back up to the small kids and would cautiously approach them for petting but we think he would be more comfortable living in a quiet home without small rowdy kids. Lip is being fostered now with teenagers and he absolutely loves them. So a home with older kids would be fine for him. Lipp seems like he would be a good watch dog because he will bark an alarm if something startles him. For that reason he wouldn't be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse. Lip is a sweet, sensitive guy that is very affectionate and loving especially with females and older teenage kids. He can be a little more cautious with men but will warm up with a little time.

He only raced 13 races and didn't win one of them so he was retired young. He won't turn 2 until October 20th. Sarge is a very sweet guy that is friendly and happy. He traveled well on the trip up from Florida and seems to like to ride in cars. Sarge is very curious and spent a lot of time checking out everything in the house. He gets along very well with other dogs and plays nicely. Sarge wasn't fazed by the hardwood floors or the roomba. He crates well and was OK being crated in a room by himself. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is SJ's Flyingpenny. Sarge passed his cat and small dog tests with just a few curious sniffs so should be fine to live with either.

Snoopy was also called Stubby at the track because he has a short tail that is only about 6 inches long. Snoopy is a cute, tiny, boy that is white with brindle spots. He only weighs 64lbs. Snoopy came in with his two brothers Rex Birkhead (Sparky) and Adam Schefter (Sarge) from the Ebro race track. Snoopy and Sparky look like identical twins (except for the tail) but Sarge is a brindle boy. Snoopy raced 16 races and didn't win one of them so was retired young. He won't turn 2 until October 20th. Snoopy's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is SJ's FlyingPenny. Snoopy is a friendly boy that is cute and very sweet. He did great with a small dog he met and tried to get him to play with him. He also passed his cat test without any interest. He seems like a sensitive guy that worries sometimes. His main worry is about his footing. He doesn't like to walk on odd surfaces indoors and just freezes until he gets his courage up to take a few steps. It doesn't matter if the floors are shiny, slippery or not. Outside he will walk on the same tile and wood without worrying about it and did the 4 steps to get outside with no trouble at all. He is a very silly pup that still has a lot to learn. Snoopy travels really well and loves to go for rides. He is a very good singer and does a soft quiet roo that sounds like a wolf howl but he does it very softly so it can barely be heard in the next room. More as we get to know him.

He is quiet in his crate while his foster family is at work. He lays right down on his bed at night and sleeps through the night. He plays well with the other greyhounds in his foster home. He is happy and his tail wags all the time. He was a little curious about the cat at first but after she swatted him once he is more cautious around her. He tries to get her to play but is polite when she says no. Buckwheat has the sweetest personality and is so shiny and beautiful. He already knows how to fetch a ball too! He also passed his cat and small dog tests so could live with either. He seems to like kids too. This is an all around great guy.

Frilly just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. She only ran 8 races and was doing great winning half of those. She had an ankle injury in January and they rehabbed her in hopes she could go back to racing. She healed up very well but never got back to her former speed and had some ankle soreness after practice races, so was just retired officially. She is fine to run and play as a pet and you can't even see where she was injured but she wouldn't be one that is likely to be able to do competitive sports like Agility or Lure Coursing because of the old injury. Frilly just turned 2 on June 10th so is a young girl. Her sire is Golden Squire and her dam is Fancy N Frilly. She raced at 62lbs. Frilly passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She was a little worried and stressed on the long trip up from Florida but did better on her one hour trip to the vet. She can be just a little bit timid with new people and is pretty submissive getting low to the ground sometimes. She warms up fast though and is an awesome little girl and such a gorgeous red brindle color. She seemed to like the kids she met.

He wasn't worried about the wood floors or the steps and seems like he would just settle easily into any situation. He loves snuggles and toys.Nelly was much too focused on cats he met to be able to live with them . He has been living in a foster home with a small white dog though and is very good with him. Nelly has liked the small kids he met. He did make a little noise in his kennel at first but is very quiet in his crate now so he may do OK in a townhouse or apartment. Nelly is a happy friendly guy that gets along well with others and also seems to do well when he is by himself so may do well as an only dog too. He is so handsome, sweet and calm!

Gardenia arrived with her sister Blast. She retired from the Wheeling Race Track back in January of 2015 after she was run into by another dog in a race and broke her hock. She went back to the farm for rehab and she has just been hanging out there as a pet for the last 3 years. Gardenia also raced at Tri State in WV. She has 57 races listed and got up to the top AA level at Tri State. She also ran in one stakes race so she was a good racer that would have had a much longer career if she hadn't had the injury. She is a cute brindle girl that has a pure white face and white on her legs and throughout her brindle fur giving her the prettiest look. She won't turn 8 until December 13th so has gone prematurely white. She is starting to look more like a blue brindle with all the gray. She raced at 60lbs. Gardenia's sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is AMF Bone Bruise. Gardenia passed the cat test with just some curious sniffing at first, when the cat slapped toward her she jumped back and didn't want to get close to the cat again. The cat didn't actually even slap her. She has been fine with the small dog in her foster home too. She was a little nervous around small kids and chose not to interact with them most of the time. Gardenia is pretty friendly but is a little less confident at first than her vivacious sister Blast and seems to be a little more cautious of trying new things like steps at first. She has not tried to hug anyone so far like her sister does. She seems pretty laid back, well behaved and good on leash. Her leg has been healed for 3 years now and she is fine to run and play on it and it doesn't slow her down.

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.

Kandy is a 66lb dark brindle female. She turned 3 on February 18th. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is Kandy Bale. She is a friendly happy girl that does a greyhound grin when she is happy. Very cute girl. Kandy was only a little interested in the cat when she first met it and quickly lost interest so we think she would be trainable with some supervision. She was fine with the small dog she met and seemed to like kids.

Adoption Status: Adopted to the Martin Family of Greenville SC 8/16/18

 Fernandos came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track a little over a year ago. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and Mardi Gras. He raced 180 races at 75lbs. He was a pretty good racer and did get up to the top A level. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Auntie Anne. Fernandos turned 6 on May the 14th. He has the most beautiful, shiny, black coat and 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 the very tip of one ear. Fernandos passed his initial cat test easily with no interestHe was good with 6 of the 7 cats in his first home, but there was one that was scared of him that would run from him that he was not able to resist chasing so he would do fine in a home with a confident cat instead of a scaredy cat. Fernandos is one of the greyhound grinners that smiles when he is happy or excited. Fernandos is not the most confident boy, although he pretends to be. Although he is fine with small dogs and other breeds once he meets them in a home situation, he can be nervous of other breeds approaching on walks and sometimes barks protectively. We worked on that before his last placement at the beginning of December and had him doing so well we could take him out in busy area of downtown without a single bark. Fernandos is very friendly and is a leaner that leans in to give the famous greyhound hug. Fernandos is used to having his teeth brushed every day and likes it. He is very good and mostly quiet in his kennel. The only time he is loud is when he hears the siren of an emergency vehicle, then he sings along. He is a very good singer. When you first come home he will roo because he is so happy to see you. Fernandos walks great on leash. He is a very laid back, well behaved guy in the house and doesn't do much running or playing in the fenced yard, so doesn't require one. Fernandos has been in several adoptive homes already and was returned once because he wanted to chase one of the 7 cats he lived with. He was returned again because he did not do well in an urban apartment with all the other dogs around on walks. He was placed in a 3rd home in December and did fantastic there and they loved him. They ended up having to move in with relatives and couldn't take him with them, so he was returned again through no fault of his own. Fernandos was occasionally protective of his space when laying down or sleeping when he first arrived. He is doing fine with that in his foster home now. We still think he shouldn't be placed with little children that may not understand that dogs should be left alone when laying down or sleeping though. Fernandos is a really sweet, loving guy that has just had some bad luck.

Carla just arrived from Larson Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a brindle female that raced at 63lbs. She only raced 19 races and never won one of those and only placed a few times. She was retired young and won't turn 2 until October 16th. Carla arrived with her littermate Hurricane Berry. Her sire is Barcelona Boss and her dam is Hurricane Riot. We placed her mom's mom Audacious. Carla travels well and is a natural sitter. Carla is a happy, friendly, waggy girl and so pretty! She was very interested in the cat until it slapped her, then she screamed and ran. She kept squealing for awhile and we checked her for a scratch, but found nothing. She wouldn't get near the cat again. When she had to walk past the cat to get out of the room she started screaming again even though the cat never touched her. She seems like she is very dramatic. We think she would be easily trainable by a cat that would slap her just once. She did fine with the small dog she was fostered with and was very friendly with children. She travels well too. Carla can be pushy about getting what she wants, but her dramatic side means that she corrects pretty easily. Carla is a natural sitter (it is not a comfortable position for most greyhounds) and is very good on leash.

Rosa came in initially from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She wasn't even two yet when she first arrived. She just wasn't very interested in racing so never actually became a racer. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is Alissa's Posa. Rosa was was quickly adopted by her foster family and has been in a home for a year and a half. She was just returned to us due to some very serious health issues that made it impossilble for her family to care for her. Rosa turned 3 on January 26th. She is good with kids and small dogs. She passed her initial cat test with only a little interest but wanted to chase cats in her foster home after she got more comfortable there so she needs a home with no cats.

Day came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in Florida over a year ago. She is a very tiny, black, girl that only weighs 51lbs! She just turned 3 on December 11th. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. She came in with her sister Night and Night has been adopted. Day won her very first race and raced 21 more races. She never won another race, so was retired young. She is a happy, friendly girl that is young and playful. Day was adopted in June of 2017 and is being returned due to a divorce. She has lived with an Italian Greyhound and with a child and is very good with both.  She is outgoing, gentle and affectionate. She does great on stairs and can get in and out of the car easily. She has not lived with cats but did pass her cat test with a little initial excitement, then quickly lost interest, so we think she may be trainable with them with close supervision at first. Day was also around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12 before we got her. Day looks like she has been polished her coat is so shiny and her personality is just as shiny and bright. She was good on leash and quiet in her crate when placed initially. 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.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Weisner Family of Greenville SC 8/9/18

Dreamer never raced, just wasn't interested in it. So she flunked out of training and the final step of her registration process, getting a registered name, wasn't completed. She was tattooed at 3 months and her Left ear is 69464 and Right ear tattoo is 106C. Her sister CTW Sonnys Dream was registered to race. Dreamer was born on Oct 13 of 2016 so she won't even turn 2 for some time. Dreamer was raised on the beautiful CTW farm in Texas, a farm that some of our volunteers have been to. Her sire is CTW Base Camp and her dam is CTW Legalese. Dreamer is a very kissy, snuggly girl once she warms up. She has been pretty overwhelmed with the move from the farm to the track adoption kennel so she could be sent to an adoption group. The first day, fast movements caused her to bolt and she was pretty worried but she was still snuggling with people as soon as she got into her foster home. She has not been cat tested but didn't have enough prey drive to chase a lure so we are pretty sure she will pass that test. She was not interested in a fast moving white dog at all. She was raised around kids at the farm and is in a foster home with small children.

Berry just arrived from the Larson Kennel at the Orlando Race track. He had just 7 races and didn't place in any of them so he was retired young. He won't turn 2 until October 16th so is still very young. Berry raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized male that is more stocky and muscular than tall. His sister Hurricane Carla is arriving with him from the same kennel. Their sire is Barcelona Boss and their dam is Hurricane Riot. Riot's mother, Audacious, is a dog that we placed. Berry travels well and so far has been pretty quiet in his kennel.  He seems like a calmly friendly guy that is perfectly happy exploring the backyard by himself and isn't too needy. He passed his cat test easily with only a casual sniff. He also seemed to like the kids he met and did fine with the small dogs he saw too.

Rulz just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced 127 races. Rulz was a good racer starting out his career at the top track in the country, Southland. He won some races there and got up to the A level. He was moved to Orlando in March of 2017 and has been there racing since. He is a rare blue brindle which means he has gray stripes instead of black stripes like most brindles. Rulz will turn 4 on September 6th. His sire is Surf Lorian and his dam is Travel N Time. He is a very calm guy that gets along very well with all the other dogs in the kennel. He is very well behaved and very sweet. We have been waiting on him to retire since we met him. Rulz traveled well and quickly settled himself on a dog bed as soon as he reached his foster home. He is a calmly friendly guy that seeks out attention and love calmly. He gives sweet kisses too. Wood floors and steps don't seem to phase him. He settled into home life right away. Rulz passed his cat test and small dog tests without much interest. He liked the small children he met too.

Knight is a young black male that won't turn 2 until October 1st. We don't have a racing weight on him because he never actually raced. He just didn't show much promise as a racer. We would guess his weight to be around 70lbs. Knight is still losing his furry puppy coat and you can see the shiny adult coat underneath. He was raised on a farm in Texas. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Leona Brown. Knight is very outgoing, his goal in life is to give kisses to as many people as possible. He is still a silly pup and is very sweet. He passed his cat and small dog tests and there are kids on the farm he was raised on so he is used to being around them too. More as we get to know him.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Dalton Family of Anderson SC 7/28/18

Escapade had a long racing career of a 105 races (since each race is about 30 seconds that is just over 50 minutes of total actual racing time). She started out at Abilene KS, then went to Daytona Beach where she quickly went up to the top A level and won 25 races and even won 6 races in a row! Then she was moved to a tougher track with more competition in Wheeling WV. She did well there and even got up to the top AA level there but she wasn't able to win as many races as she had before, so was moved back to Daytona Beach. She retired January 27th of 2015 and went back to the farm to become a mom and hopefully pass on her racing speed and skill. She had two puppies in March of 2016 that have started racing now. Probably another litter or two that just aren't registered yet too. Escapade is a happy, bouncy, girl that has never met a stranger. She is very sweet and loving, travels well and has personality plus. She raced at 60lbs and turned 7 on March 8th. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is Lil Kaci. Escaped passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. She has been good with the children she has met and seems to really like them.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Watson Family of Huntersville NC 7/28/18

Groomsman just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is very young and won't turn 2 until October 5th. He didn't actually ever have an official race, so either was too slow or just not that interested in chasing during training. Groomsman is an extra large guy that is very tall so that may have made it more difficult for him to run especially in the turns. He is still a skinny pup that needs to fill out some and we would guess a good weight for him would be in the upper 80s to 90lbs. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Kiowa Bride. He is a grandson of the famous Flying Hydrogen that one of our volunteers owned after retirement. Groomsman is very good on leash and pretty calm and well behaved for such a young guy. He still has the submissive puppy attitude and will lower his head submissively when he comes up for petting. He is very friendly and seems to like people and kids. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily but we have noticed in foster care that he still has a little interest when they run around him so he needs careful supervision at first. He was a little nervous at first in a home environment but he gets more playful and silly after a few days. He just has the sweetest personality. Groomsman kennels very quietly, even when he is alone. He is very clean in his crate and will whine to let you know he has to go out. That is the only time he makes noise in the kennel though. He is a natural sitter which is a position that is not comfortable for most greyhounds. He sometimes will do a little sideways Elvis grin just on one side. This is the prettiest boy that seems like he will do well in just about any situation. We just love him!

Robbie came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 71 races there and did get up to the top A level briefly. His last race was Feb 5th. Robbie raced at 77lbs and will turn 3 on July 22nd. He is the son of WW All Star Owen that we adopted out recently and his dam is Kentucky Ashley. Robbie passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or smaller dogs. He is a very handsome white boy with brindle spots. Robbie is a pretty confident guy that thought he was the boss of the other boys he was turned out with at the track. He got along well with all but one that didn't see eye to eye with Robbie and they had to be watched closely. Robbie has been doing fine with the other males in his foster home and hasn't tried to be bossy with any of them. He backed right off when a female got after him for sniffing her too much during transport and was a complete gentleman. Robbie has been the perfect gentleman since he arrived and is very well behaved in his foster home and has followed all the rules. He did pull hard on the leash wanting to check everything out at first, but his foster mom worked with him on that and reports that he is excellent on leash now. Robbie only had one accident in his foster home so picked up on potty training exceptionally fast. His foster mom says he is a wonderful boy that is a joy to have around. He isn't really that food motivated and will lay there and just look at his food bowl sometimes and wait to eat until he is ready. He has really liked the children he has met. Robbie has the cutest puppy face and is so sweet!
