Mo is an XL sweet boy that never raced and never received an official racing name. He weighed 82lbs at his vet visit. Mo schooled once but just walked out of the box and stood there looking around. He really wasn't interested in running or chasing so he was just retired. He came straight to us from the Kansas farm where he was raised. Because of never having a racing career Mo has not been exposed to much about home and city life and still has a lot to learn. He is particularly confused with the variety of flooring, carpets, wood, brick tile, and stairs. He isn't fond of any of it yet, but is learning. Dirt and grass are his preferred things to walk on since that is what he is used to. He will just freeze on other surfaces. Mo is a sweet guy that is very loving and friendly toward people, but he does seem to be a sensitive guy that gets worried about new things. He gains confidence slowly. On the trip over from Kansas in one of our volunteer's vans he would snuggle up to her when she would lay down to rest in the van. Mo is just a little jumpy if you move suddenly, but he does want to be with you and stay close. He is great on walks and walks politely on leash outdoors. Inside he can freeze on leash when he encounters new types of flooring that scare him. He is doing pretty good on the tile and wood floors in his foster home after about a week, but the carpets and brick in the home are a little harder for him to accept. He is great with the small dog that is in his foster home and he just sniffed the cat he met. Mo is normally pretty quiet in his kennel but sometimes does the famous greyhound roo that sounds much like a sad wolf howl. He is quite the singer with a deep, sweet, sad voice. He is very sweet and still has his furry, farm puppy coat that is starting to shed out now. He just turned 2 in April so is pretty young. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Fly Miley Cyrus.

Fostered by (location):
Fulcher, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Pilgrim Family of Pickens SC

Dudley just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He never had an official race, because he had an injury to his hock while he was in race training. Our vet has x-rayed the old break and it is healing nicely. It happened over a month ago and wasn't a bad break. He is not in a splint and is walking on it very well with only a slight limp already. He still needs leash walked a bit longer to be sure it is completely healed up, but our vet thinks he will be fine to run and play normally in a few more weeks. Dudley is completely vetted and ready to be adopted. He is a young guy that won't turn 2 until August 16th. Dudley is a mid sized male that should be around 75lbs. He is in the process of losing his puppy coat and his new glossy coat is already coming in. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Hey Dodi Lou. Dudley is a cute, friendly boy that seems pretty calm for one so young. We are sure he will love to play once he is off his leash walking restriction though. He complains some in his kennel, so may not be the best apartment or townhouse dog. Dudley does correct really well though, and quiets down fast. He has shown no interest in the small white dog in his foster home so should be OK to live in a home with small dogs. He passed his cat test without much interest other than a quick sniff, then checked out everything else in the room. He seemed very happy to see the toddler and baby we introduced him to and really seemed drawn to them and interacted very well.  Dudley didn't like steps at all when he came in but he is learning to do them in his foster home. He loves being around other greyhounds and dogs and is much more happy and waggie when they are around. He is a bit more reserved at his foster family's house where he is an only dog. Dudley is an adorable loving guy that is going to make a great pet for some lucky family.

Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Sara just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. She raced 112 races there and at Naples Ft Myers. She was a good racer getting up to the top A level. She raced at 60lbs and will turn 4 on May 15th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is USS Santa Rosa. Sara is very calm and sweet. When she first meets a new person she will calmly just stand there politely, waiting to be petted. She isn't really shy and loves the attention, but isn't pushy about asking for attention with new people. She is a beautiful girl with a gorgeous, shiny, black coat. She is quiet in her kennel and travels well. She potties really well on leash, so would be fine without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her. Sara gets along well with other dogs and is living in a foster home with another border collie so would do fine in a home with no other greyhounds. She passed her cat and small dog tests with no interest in the cat at all. She has been living in a foster home with cats and has shown no interest in chasing them. Sara can do steps and can hop in and out of cars easily to go for rides. She is a very sweet, beautiful girl that is doing great in foster care and learning the rules of home life. She only had one accident while being house trained in her foster home.  Sara is completely vetted and ready to go home.

Fostered by (location):
Shingler, Greenwood SC
Adoption Status: On Vet hold/ In Process to the Shingler Family of Greenwood SC

Ozaki came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He was a good racer and also raced at Dubuque and was a finalist in the 2016 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Race. He only raced 36 races though. He broke his leg at the end of December. His racing owner had an expensive surgery done to fix the leg then. He has been rehabbing at the track since then. He still had swelling and infection in the leg when he arrived, so we had a biopsy done on his leg to find out what was going on. It turns out he had an infection that was resistant to common antibiotics, and we had to change his treatment to daily antibiotic injections. He has been at the vet since he came in. His bone appears healed and he puts weight on the leg, so we are hoping that this new treatment gets the swelling and oozing to stop and that he will make a full recovery.  His trainer says he is a very nice dog with a great personality and he was one of his favorites in the kennel. The staff that has been working with him at the clinic agrees and one of them has fallen in love with him and wants to adopt him when he is released from vet care. Ozaki is a big guy that raced at 79lbs and probably weighs more than that now. His sire is the very famous SH Avatar and his dam is Money Maid. Ozaki turns 3 on June 11th. Ozaki seems like a sensitive guy that was a little stressed about the haul and everything new. We think he may be on the dramatic side. When we were loading him in the van he had to be lifted in, then wouldn't put his legs down. We had to slide him in on his side on the dog beds. That one step up just made him literally freeze. He was OK a second later, up on his feet sniffing around. Sweet, goofy, guy!

Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Maddie was initially adopted through another group that has allowed us to re-home her. She was abandoned by her owners a couple of months ago at a boarding kennel. They never returned to pick her up after boarding her there and all attempts to reach them were ignored. So now this sweet older gal is looking for a home. When we took her in, she had a mouth full of bad teeth that had caused her to have difficulty eating and some weight loss. We had her vetted and all the bad teeth pulled so she is feeling much better now. She also had blood work done and appears to be a healthy girl. Maddie is adorable with a very unique roman nose and half a tail. She never raced and was in her previous home since she was very young. She is living with small dogs in her foster home and lived with a male husky in her previous home- he was also abandoned at the boarding kennel. Maddie just turned 9 on March 28th. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Jax Cleopatra. Because she is a senior, Maddie qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. Maddie is a sweet, friendly girl that is calm and well behaved. She has been going outside to do her business at her foster home like a good girl. She kennels quietly so would probably be a very good choice for an apartment. This sweet, well behaved girl is a one of a kind that will stand out in every crowd of greyhounds.

Dyer, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

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 and only won one of those and usually finished toward the back of the pack so he was retired young. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday on March 19th. Hooyah raced at 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. He seems like a pretty 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. While he was at the vet one of the clinic cats befriended him and curled up with him while he was coming out of his anesthesia so he appears to be fine with cats and small dogs too. Hooyah is friendly with people but can be timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes for example. Most greyhounds do this and relax with time and eventually do OK on shiny floors but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after weeks of living in a house with shiny floors, he can't seem to get brave enough to do them. He is going to need a home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs so he doesn't have to walk on shiny floors. Hooyah has an interesting brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side with more striping and more brindle on the other. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference. It almost looks like you are looking at a completely different dog from one side to the other. Hooyah loved the kids in his first foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash and keeps his kennel clean.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Annie
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Crago, Inman SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Annie came in from the Orange Park Race Track with her sister Alice from the Clear Lake Racing Kennel. She raced 168 races there. Annie was a good racer and did get up to the top A level for part of her career. Annie raced at 65lbs and turned 4 on December 17th. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is Calypso Amy. Some of our volunteers met Annie and her sister Alice on a recent trip to the track and asked if we could place them when they retired. They had such stunning unusual dark brindle coloring with silver highlights. Annie's sister Alice has already been adopted now. When Annie came in she had a bad ear infection that needed treated. Her ears are healed and are fine now and Annie has been completely vetted and has been released by our vets for adoption. Annie passed her cat test so should be fine to live in a home with kitties. She also passed her small dog test and showed no prey drive towards small animals. Annie was bossy and grumpy about her space when laying down with the other dogs in her foster home. Her foster mom corrected that and the behavior has stopped for the last month. Although she is normally a confident girl, she is afraid of other breeds that rush up her or are jumping around. She is being fostered with small dogs but we think she would probably do better in a home as an only dog. She has never shown any protectiveness over space with people, but just to be safe, we would rather not place her in a home with toddlers that are likely to fall on her while she is laying down. Annie actually has liked the children she has met though. Annie is a sweet, friendly, confident girl. She is very loving and happy. She is a very calm girl that is very well behaved and very good on leash. She has excellent house manners too. This is a stunning girl with such unusually beautiful markings and coloring!
