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.

Homare just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel with her sister Carli Cool. Homare didn't actually race there but was sent there from the Palm Beach Race track when it closed. She only has a schooling race listed at Palm Beach and no official races. It looks like she raced a few races in Iowa before that but finished toward the back of the pack. Homare is a tiny little thing that raced at just 50lbs. She won't turn 2 until September 3rd. Homare's sire is Cheeky Monkey and her dam is Cool Valley. Homare lost interest in the cat after a few sniffs and was polite and well behaved with the small dog she met so should be fine to live with either. She seemed overwhelmed and very calm when she first arrived but has gotten more active and puppyish after a few days. She has been mostly quiet in her kennel but did a little barking at first. So far she hasn't been eating very good, probably due to the stress of everything new. She is a sweet girl that seems like she likes people and other dogs.

Fostered by (location):
Norman, Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Pending to the Sellner family of Augusta GA, 7/27/20

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.

Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
(Aiken, SC)
Adoption Status: Pending to the McPike family of SC, 6.4.20

Spicer came from the Mobile Al race track where he raced 107 races. He raced at Southland in Arkansas, then at Palm Beach and Orange Park in Florida and finally moved to Mobile. He is 4 years old and celebrated his 4th birthday on June 1st. He raced at 71lbs so is a mid sized guy. His sire is Deerfield Site and his dam is Bob's Streak. Spicer is doing fantastic in his foster home. He is good with small dogs he has met. He loves to play with toys and squeaky toys are his favorite. He is a happy loving guy.  Update!  Unfortunately Spicer's mom Passed recently and his family will be sending him back to GC for another home.  This sweet older fella is safe with cats, small dogs, and children- all he needs is the perfect match for the rest of his retirement.  Because of his age he will be adopted on the reduced Special Needs rate.  Let's find him a second family who will cherish his senior years with as much affection and care as his beloved Mom showered on him.  (Note, the photo shown here was his original adoption listing.  We'll get it replaced ASAP)
