Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS! Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the end of Florida greyhound racing in December, and the early closure of 3 more tracks during the pandemic, we have received far more applications than we can process in the coming months. The numbers of greyhounds available for adoption is falling quickly and will be nearly non existent by the end of the this year. AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ADOPTERS!! We are only placing greyhounds with repeat adopters that are already approved and in our system. If you have already adopted from us please contact your adoption rep or one of us to be added to the waiting list.

Red Bull just came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. The track adoption kennel there had her vetted before we got her. She raced 29 races there and did get up to the top A level briefly. She raced at 61lbs and turned 2 on May 27th. Her sire is the famous Dragon Fire and her dam is Cry Molly. Red Bull passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption/ Looking for Foster Placement

Friday is a return that we were asked to assist with rehoming. He was originally adopted through God's Greyts in Florida but is located in our area now. Friday is a 72lb male that raced 48 races at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He was good, getting up to the top A level right before they closed permanently back in March. He was adopted then and has been living in a home with a lot of cats since then. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is WhiskeyBodacious. His whole litter was named for different Whiskeys. Friday turned 3 on February 27th. He is an energetic dog that will be a fun guy for a lucky family. Friday doesn't appear to have had any potty training, manners training or leash training yet, so just needs a family that has enough experience with dogs to teach him the basics and show him how he is supposed to act in a home. Although he hasn't shown any sign of food, space or any other type of aggression with our foster home he did snap once, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no children. More as we get to know him.

Yolo came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She had her vetting done by the track adoption group there, Greyhounds As Pets of NE Florida, before arriving. Yolo raced her entire career of 67 races at Orange Park. She wasn't a very good racer and only won 2 of her races at the lowest D level. Yolo is a tiny girl that raced at just 57lbs. She turned 3 on June 26th. Her sire is GS Taylor and her dam is GS Casey. Yolo passed her cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. Yolo seems pretty confident and friendly. She had no problem with stairs the first time she tried them. Yolo seems to be a pretty laid back girl that is just as cute as she can be.

Cinnamon just arrived from the Roban Farm in FL. She is a littermate to Precious Gift that arrived at the same time. Cinnamon raced 76 races at Orange Park, Flagler and Naples Ft Myers in Florida. She retired from Naples on April 22nd 2017. She wasn't a very good racer, racing most of her career at the lower D Level. Some of her littermates were superstars at the track, so when Cinnamon retired from racing, she went back to the farm to be a mom. They didn't end up actually breeding her due to racing ending in Florida at the end of this year. So she has just been living at the farm for a few years and is being sent to us to find an adoptive home now. Cinnamon raced at 68lbs and turned 6 on March 3. Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is Raiders Chia. More as we get to know her.

Gift just arrived from the Roban farm in Florida with her littermate Cinnamon. She went back to the farm to be a mom after her racing career was over. She had one litter of 4 pups in October of 2018 that has just started their race career at the Wheeling Track in WV. Gift raced 50 races, starting her career at Orange Park, then Sarasota, Ebro, back to Sarasota and finally Sanford Orlando. Her last race was May 5th of 2017. She wasn't a very good racer, but some of her litter were superstars, including one brother who is now a stud dog. So Gift ended up being chosen to carry on the bloodline too. Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is Raiders Chia. Gift raced at 64lbs and turned 6 on March 3rd. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Kat came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. Her racing owner is one of our group's volunteers and she asked us to help her place Kat. Her owner recently broke her back and can't bring in a new dog into her home right now. Kat was not a good racer. Out of her 66 races she only won one race and came in 2nd in one. Kat raced at 66lbs and is very young. She won't turn 2 until November 15th. Kat is a really timid shy girl that is very overwhelmed by being in a home for the first time and being away from her littermates and trainer at the track. She is going to take a bit to warm up to a new environment and people she doesn't know. Her new family will need to be patient with her as she warms up. She needs a quiet home and they should expect her to take a few weeks to warm up to them if not longer. Her foster dad thinks she would do best with experienced greyhound owners that have worked with shy dogs before. Kat passed her small dog tests and did fine with the kids she met, but if placed with children she would need to be around calm, quiet, kids only because noisy toys and running and yelling would definitely scare her. More as we get to know her.

Age:

Fostered by (location):
Mason (Belville, NC)
Adoption Status: In Process to the Mason Family of Belville NC

Special Needs! Tad came in from the Blanchard Kennels at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She didn't actually race there though. She actually raced at Blanchard Kennels at Wheeling Downs in WV first, then was moved to their kennel at Tri-State in WV. Tad raced 103 races and did get up to the top AA level at Tr-State so was a good racer. She just turned 4 on May 25th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is NMS Sweet Thing and her dam is Boc's Posh Spice. Tad was a little shy and overwhelmed when she arrived but does warm up pretty fast and loves her people deeply. She passed her cat test with just some sniffing and would back away from the cat when it approached and rubbed on her. She lived in a home with a cat and was afraid of it. Tad came in with a note attached to her paperwork from her trainer: "Tad is very special, she's a little strange but awesome". Tad is special needs because she has pretty severe separation anxiety. She needs to be crated when left to keep her from being destructive and going potty in the house, but she is very loud in the crate and hates it. Since she is loud in the crate she definitely couldn't live in a townhouse or apartment. She needs to have blankets as padding in her crate rather than a dog bed, because she likes to unstuff dog beds when left alone. Although she passed her small dog test, she can be bossy with other dogs small and large so may do better as an only dog. Having another dog in the home to hang out with when left doesn't seem to help her separation anxiety. Tad has been returned a couple of times now due to her separation anxiety. She is looking for a quiet home that has people home most of the time that can spend time working with her and help her get over her separation anxiety. She can have tummy issues, but since retirement has been on a lamb based food. She has also been able to eat fish treats, beef, pasta, and milkbones. She was fed a mostly beef diet at the track. Tad has been living in a home without a fenced yard and does potty well on leash. She loves to run and play at the dog park, so would do great in a home with a fenced yard too. She loves to go for car rides and will jump right in the car on her own. She loves kids and seems drawn to them, but since she can be bossy with other dogs, we would prefer to place her in a home with no small kids.
