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.

King just arrived from the Birmingham Alabama Race Course closing. We were waiting on him to arrive before the track closed because he is the suspected sire of a recent litter of puppies that we raised. King does look a lot like some of the litter. We were very excited to meet him. He raced a total of 46 races and also raced briefly at Orange Park and Daytona Beach in Florida but only was able to win one race. When he didn't win races at those tracks he was moved to Birmingham in January and met a cute girl on the haul and a few months later, on March 4th he became the dad of 6 pups. He did win some races before the track closed and had gotten up to B level. His sire is Defrim Bale and his dam is PJ Just A Dream. King was a kennel favorite of his trainer. She said he was absolutely the best boy. He was a grinner that would smile and follow her around. He was very devoted to her but she said he did take a few days to warm up and could be just a little timid at first. He has been friendly and happy since we got him though, so much so that his foster home decided to keep him after he had only been at their house for a couple of hours. King is raced at 76lbs and will turn 3 on July 25th. More as we get to know him.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Jacobson Family

Tic Toc is arriving soon from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. The track closed suddenly due to the Corona Virus. Tic Toc was just starting out her career and had only raced 18 races. She just won 2 of those. She is a young girl that won't turn 2 until July 16th. She is brindle and raced at 64lbs. Her sire is SE Tali Sundance. Her mom is also up for adoption currently, AMF Ex Hunter. Tic Toc passed her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. Since her mom has the eye condition pannus, that can be hereditary, it is possible that Tic Toc will need daily eye drops to prevent her from losing her sight. Our vets will check her when she arrives for any sign of the eye condition. More as we get to know her.

She was good, getting up to the top A level and competing in a Stakes race. She went back to the farm to be a mom but has no puppies listed so may not have ever been bred or her pups may just be too young to be registered. Either way she is retiring from mom duties now due to tracks closing. She will turn 5 on April 12th. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 56lbs.  Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is Karen Adams. Amy Jo is getting used to her foster home and is doing great so far.

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.

Her sire is Pat C Clement. We have been waiting on her to retire for some time now. The owners of her mother are fostering her and plan to adopt her if she fits in well with their family. So Bebe is not available for adoption at this time. Bebe raced 170 races and got up to B level winning some and placed a lot. She turned 4 on July 13th. Bebe has been around children from 5 to 13 in her racing kennel. The kids help their mom care for the dogs and curl up in her kennel with her and take naps when they get tired. Bebe passed her cat and small dog tests easily and is living with a kitten that she is good with. She has settled into foster care well and is very sweet and well behaved. Bebe has a rub mark on her nose from wearing her muzzle.

Age:
7.5
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Kayleigh Burke Family of SC, 2.18.20

Gunslinger, now Tiger, is a red brindle male that came to us from the track initially before he was even two. He is being returned to us by the family that adopted him in March of 2014. His family renamed him Tiger. He ran 10 races at Birmingham Alabama Race Course before being retired. Tiger raced at 69lbs and is a tall handsome guy. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is CTW Cowgirl Up. Tiger was pretty calm and well behaved even when he was a young guy and is even calmer now. He is friendly and sweet and very outgoing with everyone he meets. He is very tolerant with other dogs and let a larger dog just lay right on him without complaint. He passed his cat test easily. He is being returned because he growled and air snapped at a visiting child that climbed on him while he was laying down. He chose not to actually be aggressive and bite. A growl or an air snap is the only way a dog can say it wants to be left alone. His family has moved close to relatives with small kids and plans to have their own as well in the future, so decided to re-home Tiger. Tiger will turn 8 on June 1st. These photos are from 2014. He still looks very much the same and is at a good weight and looks very healthy, just a little whiter in the face. He will have a fresh dental and health check and has already been brought up to date on his shots by his family. He is a very outgoing and sweet and appeared to be a very tolerant dog that didn't have space issues when placed initially. Any dog can become grumpy about their space when laying down or sleeping especially if kids get on them. That old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie" applies to most dogs. This is a sweet guy that loves people and comes already trained. He is very quiet in his crate so may be a great apartment dog.
