Canelo is a stocky greyhound that is built like a body builder. He has huge muscles and weighs 80lbs but isn't a big and tall as you would expect an 80lb male to be. He is an unusual blue fawn color that is kind of a grayish peach color that is a rare color for greyhounds. Canelo just retired from Southland on July 2nd. He was fast to be at that track since it is the top track with toughest competition. He did race a few races at the top level there and did win some races. He has 99 races listed and a few of those were at Daytona Beach in Florida. Canelo turned 3 on Jan 30th. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Hershey. He has not been cat tested yet but has been great with the small dog in his foster home. He is a friendly guy that just stares up at you and makes great eye contact. He loves people and is pretty calm. He is a very strong guy and we are working on his leash walking because he does tend to pull. Canelo seems like a really nice guy that is just gorgeous.

She loves to follow her foster family and the other dogs in her home around. She is very food motivated so would probably learn tricks really fast for food. Snitch is very quiet in her crate and sleeps through the night. She has adapted to foster care really easily.

Beef Taco just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course where he raced all his 94 races. He was a good racer racing most of his races at the top A level.

He raced at 67lbs so is a smaller male. Beef Taco is a very friendly guy whose tail wags a lot. Very social, outgoing and sweet. We need to do further testing with cats and small dogs because he seemed very interested in chasing a small dog that was running around. More as we get to know him.

Fostered by (location):
Weisner Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: In Process

Dreamer never raced, just wasn't interested in it. So she flunked out of training and the final step of her registration process, getting a registered name, wasn't completed. She was tattooed at 3 months and her Left ear is 69464 and Right ear tattoo is 106C. Her sister CTW Sonnys Dream was registered to race. Dreamer was born on Oct 13 of 2016 so she won't even turn 2 for some time. Dreamer was raised on the beautiful CTW farm in Texas, a farm that some of our volunteers have been to. Her sire is CTW Base Camp and her dam is CTW Legalese. Dreamer is a very kissy, snuggly girl once she warms up. She has been pretty overwhelmed with the move from the farm to the track adoption kennel so she could be sent to an adoption group. The first day, fast movements caused her to bolt and she was pretty worried but she was still snuggling with people as soon as she got into her foster home. She has not been cat tested but didn't have enough prey drive to chase a lure so we are pretty sure she will pass that test. She was not interested in a fast moving white dog at all. She was raised around kids at the farm and is in a foster home with small children.

Knight is a young black male that won't turn 2 until October 1st. We don't have a racing weight on him because he never actually raced. He just didn't show much promise as a racer. We would guess his weight to be around 70lbs. Knight is still losing his furry puppy coat and you can see the shiny adult coat underneath. He was raised on a farm in Texas. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Leona Brown. Knight is very outgoing, his goal in life is to give kisses to as many people as possible. He is still a silly pup and is very sweet. He passed his cat and small dog tests and there are kids on the farm he was raised on so he is used to being around them too. More as we get to know him.

He still needs tested with small dogs and kids. More as we get to know him. Blue came in specifically for someone and is not available for adoption at this time.

Moses just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced at Mardi Gras and Palm Beach. He is a smaller male that raced at just 68lbs. Moses had a pretty long career of 108 races. That is relative though, each race takes around 30 seconds, so just 54 minutes of actual racing total over the last 2 years. He started out at the better tracks in July of 2016, and then was moved to a lower end track where he would be more competitive and retired on June 22nd 2018. He did get up to the top A level at that track though. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is Ucme Mini Me. Moses will turn 4 on October 5th. He passed his cat test so should be able to live with cats or small dogs. More as we get to know him.

Groomsman just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is very young and won't turn 2 until October 5th. He didn't actually ever have an official race, so either was too slow or just not that interested in chasing during training. Groomsman is an extra large guy that is very tall so that may have made it more difficult for him to run especially in the turns. He is still a skinny pup that needs to fill out some and we would guess a good weight for him would be in the upper 80s to 90lbs. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Kiowa Bride. He is a grandson of the famous Flying Hydrogen that one of our volunteers owned after retirement. Groomsman is very good on leash and pretty calm and well behaved for such a young guy. He still has the submissive puppy attitude and will lower his head submissively when he comes up for petting. He is very friendly and seems to like people and kids. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily but we have noticed in foster care that he still has a little interest when they run around him so he needs careful supervision at first. He was a little nervous at first in a home environment but he gets more playful and silly after a few days. He just has the sweetest personality. Groomsman kennels very quietly, even when he is alone. He is very clean in his crate and will whine to let you know he has to go out. That is the only time he makes noise in the kennel though. He is a natural sitter which is a position that is not comfortable for most greyhounds. He sometimes will do a little sideways Elvis grin just on one side. This is the prettiest boy that seems like he will do well in just about any situation. We just love him!

Adoption Status: In Process to the Dalton Family of Anderson SC

Escapade had a long racing career of a 105 races (since each race is about 30 seconds that is just over 50 minutes of total actual racing time). She started out at Abilene KS, then went to Daytona Beach where she quickly went up to the top A level and won 25 races and even won 6 races in a row! Then she was moved to a tougher track with more competition in Wheeling WV. She did well there and even got up to the top AA level there but she wasn't able to win as many races as she had before, so was moved back to Daytona Beach. She retired January 27th of 2015 and went back to the farm to become a mom and hopefully pass on her racing speed and skill. She had two puppies in March of 2016 that have started racing now. Probably another litter or two that just aren't registered yet too. Escapade is a happy, bouncy, girl that has never met a stranger. She is very sweet and loving, travels well and has personality plus. She raced at 60lbs and turned 7 on March 8th. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is Lil Kaci. Escaped passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either.

Robbie came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 71 races there and did get up to the top A level briefly. His last race was Feb 5th. Robbie raced at 77lbs and will turn 3 on July 22nd. He is the son of WW All Star Owen that we adopted out recently and his dam is Kentucky Ashley. Robbie passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or smaller dogs. He is a very handsome white boy with brindle spots. Robbie is a pretty confident guy that thought he was the boss of the other boys he was turned out with at the track. He got along well with all but one that didn't see eye to eye with Robbie and they had to be watched closely. Robbie has been doing fine with the other males in his foster home so may be OK to live with other males as long as they aren't overly dominant. He backed right off when a female got after him for sniffing her too much during transport and was a complete gentleman, so should do great living with a female. Robbie has been the perfect gentleman since he arrived and is well behaved in his foster home and has followed all the rules. He did pull hard on the leash wanting to check everything out at first, but his foster mom worked with him on that and reports that he is good on leash now. Robbie only had one accident in his foster home so picked up on potty training exceptionally fast. His foster mom says he is a wonderful boy that is a joy to have around. He isn't really that food motivated and will lay there and just look at his food bowl sometimes and wait to eat until he is ready.

Buzz came in from Jade Feise at the Naples Ft Myers Race Track. He just raced 9 races there and only won one of those so was retired young. His last race was January 18th and he has been waiting in the kennel since then. Buzz just turned 2 on April 17th. He is a big stocky guy that raced at 80lbs. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is HS Texoma. Buzz was too excited around cats, so needs a home without them. He was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound, so may be OK to live with smaller dogs. Buzz is a friendly, happy guy that loves people and will be very devoted. He likes playing in the yard and would love to have a fenced yard of his own. He is very food motivated, so would be perfect for someone that wanted to train tricks, agility or do obedience with a dog. He doesn't get up on the furniture so far. Buzz would like a home with another large dog in it because he doesn't like to be left totally alone. He is doing really well in a home with several other greyhounds, but didn't do well when left totally alone in a home with no other dogs. Buzz loves to play with toys and has learned how to fetch already. He is a very smart guy that will be a lot of fun for a lucky family.

Steve came in 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 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!! Steve was adopted briefly by a trucker and was great with life on the road for for the first month or so. He seemed to be happiest when they stopped and he stayed home so he is looking for another home where he doesn't have to travel as much. He is a wonderful traveler, he just doesn't want to be on the road all the time.

6
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable

Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Fernandos came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track a little over a year ago. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and Mardi Gras. He raced 180 races at 75lbs. He was a pretty good racer and did get up to the top A level. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Auntie Anne. Fernandos turned 6 on May the 14th. He has the most beautiful, shiny, black coat and cute ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. One of his littermates took a bite out of one of his ears when they were puppies, so he is missing the very tip of one ear. Fernandos passed his initial cat test easily with no interest, but he just never was able to get used to just 1 of the 7 cats in his first home, so if placed with cats he would need a home with a confident cat. Fernandos is one of the greyhound grinners that smiles when he is happy or excited. We would prefer not to place him with small kids because he can be grumpy about his space when he is laying down. Fernandos is not the most confident boy, although he pretends to be. Although he is fine with small dogs and other breeds once he meets them in a home situation, he can be nervous of other breeds approaching on walks and sometimes barks protectively. We worked on that before his last placement at the beginning of December and had him doing so well we could take him out in busy area of downtown without a single bark. Fernandos is very friendly and is a leaner that leans in to give the famous greyhound hug. Fernandos is used to having his teeth brushed every day and likes it. He is very good and mostly quiet in his kennel. The only time he is loud is when he hears the siren of an emergency vehicle, then he sings along. When you first come home he will roo because he is happy to see you. He is a very good singer that does a very sad sounding rooooooo. Fernandos walks great on leash normally and doesn't pull, especially since we worked with him on barking at other dogs on walks. He is a very laid back, well behaved guy in the house and doesn't do much running or playing in the fenced yard, so doesn't require one. Fernandos has been in several adoptive homes already and was returned once due to him being grumpy about his space when laying down and because he wanted to chase one of the 7 cats he lived with. He was returned again because he did not do well in an urban apartment with all the other dogs around on walks. We worked with him on that after he came back. He has been in a 3rd home since December and did very well there. They are having to rehome him due to a change in their housing situation.
