Available Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. New greyhounds arrive about every two weeks. If you don't see what you are looking for please fill out an adoption application and we can often find what you need. Satellite foster areas include Greenville SC, Charlotte NC, Columbia SC, Greenwood SC, and Augusta GA.

IMPORTANT! As of January 1st 2018 our requested minimum contribution for a dog went up to $325 due to increasing vet fees.

Most greyhounds can live with cats and small dogs with careful introductions and supervision. Please note that the results of the cat and small dog testing listed by each hound below may be the result of only one encounter with only one small dog or cat. Even cat and small dog tolerant greyhounds, must be introduced to new animals very carefully and supervised at first. Greyhounds do not usually encounter small dogs or cats in racing kennels and your animals may look very different and get a different reaction. Please see our Cats and Greyhounds page for tips on how to safely introduce cats and small dogs to greyhounds.

Most greyhounds are great with well behaved kids. Although most of our foster homes do not have kids, we introduce our greyhounds to children and watch the dog to see if they have the temperament for living with kids. Unless noted, the dogs may not have experience living with kids or prolonged contact with children. Please see our Kids and Greyhounds page for tips on managing kids and greyhounds together.

Steve just arrived from a kennel at the Sarasota Race track. He only raced 20 races and only won one of those so he was retired young. Steve just turned 2 on January 6th. He is an adorable little guy that raced at just 64lbs, which is really small for a boy. He has the cutest, unusual for a greyhound, roman nose!  His sire is TK Quick Strike and his dam is Oh Yeah Baby. Steve was too interested in chasing the cats to be able to live with kitties. He was great with a small white dog he met though. Since he has arrived Steve has been really friendly and happy but his trainer says that he is a sensitive guy that has just a bit of a timid side to him occasionally. He wanted to help drive at first, then settled down and went to sleep on the trip up and didn't seem shy or timid at all. Steve seems like he will be a playful, fun guy but only for short spurts. He loves to lay around most of the day and is calm for a young guy. He likes the kids in his foster home and is very well behaved. What a great guy and so cute!!

Ace is a greyhound racing star and had a long successful career of 216 races. He raced at Ebro, Sarasota, Mardi Gras, Flagler, Dubuque and just retired from Naples Ft Myers. Ace was consistently racing at the top A levels and competed in many Stakes races that are reserved for the fastest greyhounds at that track. He won some of those races too and was a 2015 Naples Floridian Finalist. He is coming in from Jimmy King at the Flagler track and we are thrilled to be able to meet and place a star like Ace. We wish he could sign autographs. His sire is the very famous Trent Lee and his dam is Kiowa WW Ring. Ace raced at 74lbs and turned 5 on February 21st. Ace has an awesome friendly personality. He is very calm and seems like he would be a very easy first greyhound. He was not interested in the cat at all so should be great living in a home with cats and small dogs. Very sweet guy!

Holly just arrived from the Jacobs Racing Kennel at the Naples Ft Myers Race track. She only raced 29 races there and at the Flagler track but she wasn't able to win one of them. Holly usually was toward the back of the pack and looks like she may be little accident prone because she fell in several of her races. She is a red female that raced at 62lbs. Holly turned 2 on February 12th. Her sire is Shonn and her dam is Glossy Glow. Holly is very sweet and friendly. She is a natural sitter which is unusual for the breed. Most aren't comfortable in the sit position by the time they reach full growth. She is mostly quiet in the crate but does complain a little. More as we get to know her.
