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!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  There weren't enough greyhounds for the adopters and adoption groups wanting them before the tracks closed. Now we have an impossibly long waiting list and greyhounds are have become very rare. We don't now when or if we will get any more greyhounds. At this time we are sorry but we are unable to accept any new applications to adopt greyhounds. Many greyhound adoption groups have already closed or have switched to other breed rescue. We are remaining open to support greyhounds we have already placed and to help with rehoming any greyhounds adopted through groups that have already closed their doors.

If you have adopted from Greyhound Crossroads previously: Please fill out the form below and we will contact you IF we get a greyhound that might be a good match for you.

Code Blue just arrived from the Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel at Wheeling WV race track. He raced a total of 74 races and also raced at Dubuque in IA and Southland in Arkansas. He mainly raced at the lower C and D levels. Code Blue is a big light brindle guy that raced at 80lbs and is a stocky very muscled boy. He turned 3 on June 2nd. His sire is Flyin Honor Code and his dam is Sierra Nevada. Code Blue seems like a pretty active, curious boy that is very friendly and confident. He is very strong and excitedly goes from place to place sniffing and pulling on leash so needs some work on leash walking. He has a strong prey drive and definitely can not live with cats. He did fine with a small white Italian Greyhound he met, but may need to be introduced cautiously to any small dogs that resemble rabbits or squirrels.  He is doing great with the other male greyhounds in his foster home and learned the stairs easily. Code Blue seems like a smart boy that isn't phased by new things. Code Blue seems like he will be a great pet for someone that will work with him on his leash manners. Code Blue was vetted on November 4th at Emerald City Vet Clinic in Greenwood.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):

SENIOR! Lori just came to us from the Roban Farm, in Florida, where she has been living since she retired from racing in Feb of 2014. She was an amazing racer and raced 133 races at the top levels at Ebro and Sarasota tracks in Florida. She is the 2011 Ebro Mega Morris Juvenile Stake winner and was the 2013 Ebro Inaugural Champion. She is famous! She was retired to the farm to become a mom and had a total of 22 pups in 4 litters. Her last litter was in 2018 and she has been living on the farm as a pet since then. Because of the end of racing in Florida her owners have been forced to cut back on the number of dogs on the farm. They made the tough decision to let us place Lori. They only have 7 dogs left on the farm as pets now. Lori is an incredibly energetic busy girl. She is curious about everything and acts more like a 2 year old than a dog that turned 11 on February 22nd. You would never guess she is a senior. She is incredibly strong and gets excited to sniff everything at first when on leash. She does calm down and walks better after a few minutes. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Good Charlotte. Lori raced at 65lbs. Lori passed her small dog test and cat test. She was very curious at first like she is with everything else but calmed down quickly and went on to sniffing everything else. She seemed to like the small kids she met. She is a very friendly sweet girl that is going to make a great pet. Because she is a senior she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Lori was vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital

Harry Bosch
Racing Name:
Harry Bosch
Pet/Kennel Name:
Harry
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Greenberg, Spartanburg SC Area
Adoption Status: Pending to the Thomson family of Charlotte NC

Harry is one of the last greyhounds coming to us from the Florida race tracks. The tracks there have been gradually shutting down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end racing in Florida by the beginning of 2021. Harry came to us from D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane. That track just closed on December 27th of 2020. Harry never actually had an official race at that track and was retired before his career even got started. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He will turn 2 on March 13th. Since he didn't race we don't have an official race weight on him, but he is a pretty tall guy that is bigger than his two brothers that he arrived with. He weighed 72lbs but is on the thin side. As a pet Harry should probably weigh between 75 and 80lbs. Harry came in with his two littermates Irvin Irving and Reggie Woo and both of them are smaller guys that raced at just 71lbs. Harry's litter were all named for the popular Harry Bosch books and TV series. Harry did not pass his cat test. He was very interested in the cat until the cat slapped him. He wouldn't go near the cat after that, so it is possible that he could be trained with them. But he still barked and seemed excitable from a distance, even after the cat smack. We think he would do best in a home without kitties. He has been fine with a small dog in his foster home and seems to get along with the their other greyhounds as well. He is very quiet in his crate and crates nicely so he may do fine as an apartment dog. He is very friendly and happy and gets a little bouncy and playful when he comes out of the crate. He liked the children he met too. Very sweet curious guy that is busy checking out everything in the house. He gives sweet kisses.

Achilles Fury
Racing Name:
Achilles Fury
Pet/Kennel Name:
Vic
Age:
3.5
Color/Gender:
White with Brindle Spots Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Czapiewski family of Greenville SC

Vic just arrived from the Running To Stand Still dog farm in Florida. He has been there since he retired from racing in August. Vic raced 62 races at Derby Lane in Florida. He got up to A level and raced in some stakes races too so he was pretty good. He retired due to a reoccurring injury. He has no sign of any injury now so it shouldn't be anything that will affect him as a pet. Vic is a pretty boy that is almost all white except for a few small brindle spots and some red freckles in his fur. He raced at 75lbs but has put on 5lbs since he retired and is now 80lbs. Vic turned 3 on March 15th. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is PTL Que. Vic is friendly with a happy wagging tail. He is very quiet in his kennel so may do well in an apartment or townhouse. He is very food motivated so might be great for someone that wanted to do trick or obedience training. Vic was gently curious about the cat and did a lot of sniffing, but eventually wandered off to check out other things. When the cat had enough of the sniffing and growled and hissed at him, he backed off right away and wouldn't get near the cat again. He seemed like he may have had a run in with an angry cat before. He was also good with a small white dog in his first foster home. Vic seems like a very sweet guy that will make a great first or 5th greyhound.
