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.

Idol is a return from a Gainsville FL greyhound adoption group that is no longer in business. He only had 2 schooling races at the Flagler Race Track in June of 2012. He finished so far behind everyone else that he wasn't even on camera. He was sent to Dubuque to try a different track and has one more schooling race in November of 2012.  Again he finished last, so he was officially retired. At some point he was sent back to Florida and was placed in an adoptive home there, at the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. He has been in that home until now. He is being returned because his owners are being relocated due to work. They haven't been able to find a place to live that will accept large dogs. Idol is an older guy that turned 11 January 9th so qualifies for our senior discount of a $250 adoption donation. He raced at 74lbs. His sire is the famous Maryville Rumble and his dam is Grey's Paper Doll. He currently lives with an elderly dog and 3 year old twins. He is great with the toddlers and lets them play on and around him. He has also lived with cats and is great with them. Idol barks when he needs to go outside to go potty. He is a very calm, laid back, guy that loves everyone. He likes to be nearby but isn't needy. Idol travels well, he is not on any medications other than heart worm prevention. He likes walks and is excellent on leash. He has a fenced yard to play in and doesn't act his age. His only fault is that he doesn't like his crate. As perfect as he sounds, he probably wouldn't need to be crated. This is a great guy that is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.

Fostered by (location):
Smith, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending Adoption to the Smith Family of Greenville SC

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.

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.

Swiper McBones
Racing Name:
Swiper McBones
Pet/Kennel Name:
Swiper
Age:
10
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Bowden (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Pending to McPike of Inman, SC 9/12/22

Swiper originally retired in July of 2015 from the Orlando race track, where she raced 73 races. She raced at a bunch of other tracks Mardi Gras and Palm Beach, Flagler, Naples-Ft. Myers and Derby Lane. Swiper just turned 10 on August 5th and weighs 60lbs. Her sire is NMS Sweet Thing and her dam is Voo Doo von Bonz. Swiper has been in an adoptive home since September of 2015. We were asked to help her find another home because her family had a baby. Swiper was very good with the baby and they slept together on the bed. As the baby became a toddler and got more mobile it started bothering Swiper. Her family say it is definitely the toddler in this case and not the dog. The toddler just doesn't understand that she can't do mean things to the dog and won't leave her alone even with constant supervision. They want Swiper to have a home where she can relax and be comfortable without a small child bothering her. Swiper was used to being around her trainer's older kids at the racing kennel and liked them. So she might be fine with older kids. She was afraid of the cats she met and just wanted to stay away from them so she could be integrated into a home with cats. She did fine with the small dog she met.Swiper is calm and friendly and quiet in her crate. Swiper is a great girl that is very well behaved. She was pretty stressed and took a couple days to come out of her shell and eat when she first arrived in foster care. Because she is a senior, Swiper qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. She has been checked by our vet and has a clean bill of health. She is up to date on all shots and had a fresh dental.
