London just arrived from the Orlando Race Track. He came in specifically for one of our adopters so is not available at this time. He is a blue brindle male that raced at just 66lbs but is pretty tall and narrow for that weight. He only raced 14 races and won 2 of those. We just placed two of his littermates Oxford and Liverpool too. His sire is HL's Tod N Tyler and his dam is Keeper Spode. London is young and won't turn 2 until August 10th. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no interest in either of them. He seemed to like a toddler he met. He is good on leash and wants to lean against you when standing and even when walking some. He has been quiet in his crate so far. He walked across shiny floors and up and down stairs with no problems at all the first time he tried. London is a calmly friendly guy that seems very well behaved for such a young guy.

Flash is a handsome white male with black spots, that just came in from the Orlando Race Track. He is pretty tall for 76lbs and just gorgeous! Flash was an amazing racer that raced 156 races. He started out racing in Dubuque and raced at the top A level there and competed in special Stakes races there reserved for the best racers at that track. He was so successful there that he was moved to the top track in the country, Southland in Arkansas. He raced well there at the top levels and competed in Stakes races there too. He finished up his career at Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando tracks in Florida. Flash is a true track star!  His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Pacific Flash. His trainer said he is a very calm boy that is well behaved in the kennel and keeps his crate clean. Flash turned 4 on January 16th. He passed his cat and small dog test with no interest in either of them so should be fine to live in a home with either. He seemed calmly friendly to a toddler he met. He is very quiet in his crate and very good on leash so may be a good choice for apartment living. He is friendly and very calm like we were told. He didn't seem to be phased by shiny floors. He is a very sweet guy.

Overpaid just arrived from the Orlando race track. She is a small brindle female that raced at 58lbs. She also raced at Orange Park and raced a total of 55 races. Overpaid got up to the top A level briefly but had an ankle sprain on Feb 2nd that ended her race career. Her ankle has completely healed up now with no limp or any sign it ever happened. Overpaid turned 3 on July 9th. She is a cute friendly girl with big eyes and ears that go straight up when she is curious about something. She is pretty curious about everything and very waggy. She is a grinner too. Overpaid initially showed some interest in the cat but after it slapped her once she wouldn't get near it again. She did slick floors without seeming to even notice them. She jumped right into the van and did steps without a problem. She seemed to really like a toddler she met. Her sire is Rysta and her dam is Most Aggressive. She did complain some the first night in her foster home so may not be quiet enough for apartment living, she does do pretty well on leash though.

Christy just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. She raced 50 races there but it took her 18 before she ever won one race. She eventually won one more race but mainly just placed. She just turned 3 on July 7th. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is WWW Mia Hamm.  Christy did not pass her cat test. She was very interested at first but did eventually decide to leave the cat alone after he smacked her a few times. We know most cats aren't as confident around big dogs as ours so we think that she would do best in a home with no cats. She did fine with the small white dog she met though and showed no interest in him at all other than a casual sniff or two. Christy is active for a greyhound, her tail wags all the time, she is very happy and very outgoing. She loves everyone she meets and seem comfortable in every situation. She jumped in the van and laid down. Nothing seems to phase her. Christy seems like she would be an excellent meet and greet dog since she is so social. She has the energy and confidence to enjoy dog sports like agility, rally or lure coursing. Christy does need some work on leash because she is so eager to check out everything and bounces around happily. This girl has a lot of personality and is going to be so much fun. We had problems getting pictures of her because she just couldn't stand still and wanted to go see everything.

Road Runner just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is an XL red male that never actually had an official race. He just didn't do well enough in schooling. He weighs 88lbs and is a big, happy, bouncy guy that has a wonderful, outgoing personality. He still has his fuzzy puppy coat and has a very cute, puppyish face. Road Runner won't even turn 2 until October 1st. Road Runner's sire is Dynamics's Nalin and his dam is Time Release and yes he does have a brother named Wile E Coyote. This cute guy passed his cat and small dog test easily. When the cat ran he did show some interest, but wouldn't actually get near the cat even then. He appeared to already understand that cats had claws. He is living with small Italian Greyhounds in his foster home and loves them. He tries to get them to play with him. He liked the toddler and baby he met and seems to like everyone. He is a very joyful guy and everything makes him happy. He would be an excellent meet and greet dog for someone that wanted to promote greyhound adoption. He loves other dogs and tries to get everyone he meets to play with him by offering a play bow. Road Runner is definitely going to be a fun guy for a lucky family. He will need some work on leash walking because he tends to bounce sometimes and is very curious about everything. He travels very well. Even though he is very young he is pretty calm and well behaved. His foster home loves having him as a guest because of his happy, silly personality.

Tommy is a gorgeous, black and white boy that raced at 74lbs. He just came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras in FL and at Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA.  Tommy raced mostly at the mid levels but did compete in a couple of high level stakes races early on. His last race was in January of 2016, so when we got him he had been waiting in a racing kennel for a year for a group to take him. He is a sweet, friendly, boy with an excellent personality and would have been adopted quickly if people had just had the chance to meet him. He walks nicely on leash and will potty on leash so doesn't need a fenced yard if his family is willing to leash walk him. He did not pass his cat test at the track, so needs a home with no kitties. He did great with a small white Italian Greyhound he met should be fine to live with small dogs. He was placed in a home in February but hasn't been comfortable with the small child in the home so was returned. Tommy is home acclimated and will bark to let you know when he needs to go outside. He is the rare greyhound that will bark to alert you that someone is at the door. Tommy turned 5 on March 19th. His sire is RA Blazer and his dam is Jenna Bear.  Tommy is a happy, friendly boy that is doing great in his foster home.
