Upstate

Greyhounds available for adoption in the Upstate SC area around Greenville and Greenwood SC.

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: 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. 

Greyhound Crossroads Adoption Requests


If you are a previous adopter: Please check our available hounds page and contact your adoption rep to make arrangements to meet the dog you are interested in.

Irvin is one of the very last retired racers we will be getting from Florida. The majority of the racetracks in the country were in Florida and have been gradually closing down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end Greyhound Racing in the state. Derby Lane was where Irvin raced and was one of the last two tracks to remain open, closing on December 27th. The other track closed down on December 31st.  Irvin only raced 8 races for D'Arcy Kennels, and didn't win any of them. He raced at 71lbs so is a smaller guy. He won't turn 2 until March 13th. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He is arriving with 2 of his littermates Harry Bosch and Reggie Woo. Irvin was way too interested in the cat to pass his cat test. He was so interested in chasing the cat, that he wouldn't back off and didn't even seem to notice when the cat slapped him for getting too close. He definitely needs a home with no kitties. He did great when meeting a small dog after a bit of sniffing to figure out what it was. He is a friendly and happy little guy that seems to love people. He also like the kids that he met. More as we get to know him.

WW's Hey Delilah
Racing Name:
WW's Hey Delilah
Pet/Kennel Name:
Delilah
Age:
7
Color/Gender:
Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Williams Family of Slater SC

Special Adoption! Bonded Pair! Delilah initially came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track where she raced 78 races. Her last race was June 1st of 2016 so she has been retired for years. She was adopted in October of 2016 and lived with a wonderful family until now. She is looking for a new home because her family fosters special needs children and were asked to take in some more kids. Although she was fine with a couple of kids, the 5 small kids in the home now made Delilah very uncomfortable. Her family made the difficult decision to let her go to a home where she would be more comfortable. She is a tiny 52lbs light fawn female that turned 7 on June 14th. She has the tiniest face and nose and is so cute. Her sire is WW's Dog Gone and her dam is WW's Hey Darla. Delilah passed her cat test easily so should be fine to live in a home with cats or small dogs. She was great with the cats in a foster home and stayed a distance from them and wouldn't even get close. She was around her trainers kids and around the kids in her adoptive home but does get stressed by a large number of kids around her. Delilah would prefer a home with just one or two quiet kids or no kids. Delilah is a curious, friendly girl. She didn't seem stressed at all by the earlier move from the track, but she was pretty stressed and upset, missing her family when she arrived back in foster care for the second time. She acted timid and overwhelmed in her foster home at first, but has completely relaxed now and is very comfortable now. Delilah was returned with her housemate Rebel and they are very bonded, leaning on each other and laying together. We would love to find them a special home where they can stay together. Both girls are loving and sweet and will come right up for love. They are well behaved and should make an easy addition to your home. Delilah is the more confident of the two and Rebel seems to rely on her but Delilah constantly checks in on Rebel and seems just as attached to her.

Special Adoption! Bonded Pair! Rebel isn't really very much of a rebel. She is actually just a bit timid at first and not a real confident girl. Rebel is tiny, racing at just 57lbs. She turned 7 on September 4th. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Brett Lee Queen. She only raced 26 races, all of them in Wheeling WV. She was a very good racer there getting up to the top AA level quickly. After winning and doing well, she suddenly started coming in at the back of the pack. When she stopped doing well at that track, she was moved to Sanford Orlando to race. They decided that she wasn't going to race well anymore after a few schooling races there and retired her. She ran her last official race June 11th of 2016, so has been retired for years. Rebel was adopted in August of 2016 and lived with a wonderful adoptive family until now. They made the difficult decision to re-home her because they foster special needs kids. Recently they added several children to their family for a total of 5 under the age of 8. Although Rebel was OK with kids at first, she has gotten very uncomfortable with the number of kids in the family now. She would prefer a quiet home with no small kids. Rebel has lived with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. She was returned with her housemate Delilah who is also available for adoption. The two girls are very bonded and constantly lean on each other and lay together, so we would love it if we could find a special home that wants two girls. Rebel crates very quietly. Her foster home describes her as a true couch potato. She even lays down when she eats. She was pretty timid and overwhelmed when she got to her new foster home but has gotten very comfortable there in a short time. The girls are both really sweet and already well behaved so should make easy additions to a home. Because she is the more shy of the two girls, Rebel relies on Delilah. The pictures when she first arrived show the dark muzzle she used to have. The lighter muzzle photos are her new pictures.
