Pending Hounds

A list of all the greyhounds pending adoption through Greyhound Crossroads. Although some of these dogs have been on here a long time, they are not available for adoption. In most cases the dogs are safely in their adoptive homes and their owners have not yet made a contribution towards their adoption and/or completed the paperwork to make it official.
 

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!!

If you have already submitted an application and received confirmation from our volunteers, you WILL be processed in the order of receipt IF we have greyhounds available.
If you are already a GC adopter and in our system, please contact one of us or your adoption rep for help.

Love just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track. She never actually raced. She had a minor shoulder injury in schooling in July so went back to the Bolton farm in Florida for a few weeks to rest and rehab. After she healed up and went back into schooling, she twisted her hock. Although it was not broken, it was pretty sore. The decision was made to retire her rather than risking any further injury. We have quite a few photos of her because she was one of the racers a group of our volunteers followed online since her owners bought her at auction. Love is a sweet girl that seems very laid back and very loving. She passed her cat with only a couple of quick sniffs and would jump away if the cat approached her so she should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. Her sire is Gigawatt and her dam is KB's Rae Bae. She weighs around 60lbs but doesn't have an official racing weight since she never got that far. She just turned 2 on August 23rd. Our vet has looked at her leg and doesn't see any obvious lameness and the swelling has gone down already, so she should recover fully.

Adoption Status: Pending Adoption to the Thompson Family of Hendersonville NC

Blade came in from the Roban Farm in Florida. She never went to the race track and never raced. Her owner said she would rather play with the other dogs than chase the lure. She weighed in at 62lbs when she arrived. Blade passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. She is friendly and happy after she warms up, but she can be very timid at first. Her first trip off the farm where she was born was very stressful and overwhelming for her. She has warmed up to her foster family after a few days and has shown her playful silly side. She loves to run in the yard, but only for a short while and then she spends most of the day sleeping. Blade won't be 2 until November 1st. She has not had an accident, not chewed anything, no counter surfing, and has been quiet in the crate. She does not like staircases but has done OK on just 4 steps going down to a potty area. Blade never got an official racing name, but was tattooed at 3 months old. Her tattoos are 118B 73078. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is Lily Langtry. Blade was vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin. Blade was in a home with an elderly lady for a couple of months and was mostly good but pawed at her for attention and when she was playful. That was hard on her owners very fragile skin so she has made the decision to re-home her.

Dee Dee is coming in from a farm in Arkansas. She has been retired from racing since November of 2018. She went back to her owner to be a mom. She had a litter of 7 puppies last year and had another single puppy a few months ago. She wanted nothing to do with her last puppy and refused to nurse him. Since she wasn't thrilled with being a mom, her owner decided to retire her from Mom duties. Dee Dee is a very special girl that has been living as a pet for a little over a year while she raised her pups. She has been living with small Italian Greyhounds at the farm and is good with them. She is a friendly girl that has a great personality. Dee Dee is a confident girl and being a mom is likely to boss other dogs around a bit. She raced at Melbourne and Derby Lane tracks. She was pretty good getting up to A level and even competing in a Stakes race. She raced 56 races but stumbled in her last race and broke her leg ending her career. Her leg is completely healed, but didn't heal up perfectly, so she still limps on it some. It doesn't slow her down though. She can run and play and go up and down stairs just fine. Dee Dee raced at 62lbs and is still pretty young. She won't turn 5 until September 2nd. Her sire is the famous Pat C Clement and her dam is Backwood Robin. Dee Dee was vetted by her owners in Arkansas before they sent her to us. She is home acclimated already and has been a pet while she was being a mom for a couple of years. The family she was living with while she had her pups would love to keep in contact with her new owners. They miss her. Be sure to look at her other pictures to see her with her cute pup.
