Greyhounds available for adoption in the Columbia SC Area



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: Please fill out the form below if you are in our adoption areas 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.

Truman is an AKC show bred greyhound and is not from racing bloodlines. He was bred for the show ring and is just a stunningly gorgeous guy. He didn't end up having the exact look needed to be a champion show dog, so his owner decided to let us place him in a pet home. He is a very big guy that weighs in the mid 90s. Truman has an excellent personality very happy, very outgoing and friendly. He loves everyone he meets, so much that he may try to get into your lap. He loves attention and loves his toys. He is up to date on all vaccines and ready to be placed. He has lived with and likes small dogs, but being a playful puppy, he just wants to play with them and is too big to play with tiny dogs. Since he is such a playful big boy, he would do better with medium to large dogs that would enjoy playing with him. Truman has seen barn cats at his home from a distance and gets very excited when seeing them, so we don't think he will be able to live in a home with kitties. Truman is still a young, one year old guy, so needs a fenced yard where he can run, and he will need lots of exercise. Young greyhounds are not like the calm, retired greyhounds we are used to. Truman has been living in a home, but will still need some reminders on manners, like all puppies. He can be a thief, stealing things off tables and counters. Truman hasn't been around kids but loves everyone, so probably would be OK with older kids. He is so playful he could accidentally knock down a toddler. He is no wallflower, very exuberant and happy. If you want a playful, fun, loving dog, Truman is your guy.
