Greyhounds available in the Augusta GA Area.

 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: If you are in our adoption area, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home.

Greyhound Crossroads Adoption Requests

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.

Racing Name:
Good Fur You
Pet/Kennel Name:
Amigo
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Amos, Columbia SC Area
Adoption Status: In Process to the Covard family of Aiken, SC 1.8.21

Amigo came in from the Waverider Kennel due to the Daytona Beach Track suddenly closing down back in March. He raced most of his career of 60 races at Daytona Beach but also raced some at Orange Park. He got up to B level and won a few races. Amigo is a goofy, outgoing, 2.5 year old brindle boy that raced at 70lbs. He turned 3 on September 26th. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Iris Of Ruckus. Amigo was very interested in the cat at first. After it slapped him he wouldn't go anywhere near it again though, so we think he would be trainable with a cat that would slap him once. Amigo was vetted at Northeast Animal Hospital in Columbia SC. He was placed in an adoptive home shortly after he arrived but is looking for another home now due to his family working in health care and being too busy right now to have a dog. His foster family has decided to adopt him so he is not available for adoption at this time.
