Rainbow Bridge

 

 These greyhounds were all adopted through Greyhound Crossroads and have passed away or as we like to say "crossed the Rainbow Bridge". If you would like us to add your greyhound to this list please email us here. Include your greyhound's racing name, nickname, color, gender, and a paragraph or two about your dog and your favorite photo. You can also include when you adopted your dog and when it passed away if you would like to. We have been adopting out dogs for years and our current website was put up in 2009. This list is far from complete. We apologize that we have not been able to add many of the dogs that were adopted previous to 2009.

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Covard Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Covard family of Granitville SC 4/14/18

Maverick is an older gentleman that is looking for a new home because his previous owner died suddenly. He lived peacefully with 5 other greyhounds there, that have all been placed already, so we do fine in a home with other dogs. Maverick will turn 9 on May 24th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Maverick has been retired and in his home since Dec of 2011. He was known as 'Satin' at the track had a very brief unsuccessful racing career of 23 races and only ever won one of those. He actually stopped running in the middle of one race. He raced a few races at Palm Beach, then a few at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and finally finished up at Orange Park in Jacksonville. His owner tried to find a track that he would be competitive at, but Maverick just didn't have his heart into chasing a lure, so was retired young. He was initially placed by the adoption kennel at the track in Jacksonville and was returned to them when his owner passed away. We picked him up from them on a recent track trip. Maverick raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized male. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and that is where he inherited his cute floppy ears. His dam is Surprise Plan. Maverick is a pretty calm guy that still has very short bursts of playful energy. He has good house manners and is friendly and loving. He is in good health and has had excellent care by his previous owner. Maverick likes kids and has been fine with the small dogs and cats he has met so should be good to live with them. He did live with a number of other dogs in his previous home and gets along well with others. This is a super sweet boy that just wants some love and petting.

Maverick was only in his home for a year and a half before he crossed the bridge in October of 2019. RIP Maverick

Adoption Status: Adopted to the Moore Family of N. Augusta 6/29/13

Gambino is an extra large, black guy that is very friendly. He is tied with one other dog to be the biggest dog we have ever adopted out with a racing weight of 98lbs. He is pretty calm for a young guy and well behaved. He does need some training on leash because he pulls some and is pretty strong. He is a gentle giant though and seems to be very sweet and gets along well with others. He retired from Derby Lane without an offical race. He did some training races there but they decided he was too big to be a successful racer. He seems pretty smart and is picking up on house manners quickly. He crates nicely and quietly. He likes people and seemed to like the children he has met too. He did good with small dogs that walked past him at the recent meet and greet. He still needs tested with cats.

Gambino developed seizures shortly after his adoption in 2013. They were able to be managed with medication until 2019 when they were no longer able to be controlled and he passed away. This big guy was loved by so many and will be missed.

Chopin came to us from the Birmingham Race Course. He also raced a race at Southland in Arkansas. He is a pup of Dave the Dog who is a famous dog that retired and lives in our area. His dam is Tech Bomb. He was born on September 27th 2006. Chopin didn't race, long only 14 races are listed. Boy is this a handsome guy! Chopin is very outgoing and loves everyone he meets. He LOVES to go for rides and will hop right in and may even try to help you open the door. He seems like he is going to be a fun guy because he has loads of personality. He needs some work on his leash manners because he is very strong and very excited about seeing everything. Nothing seems to bother him, even new things. He takes everything in stride. This is one very happy go lucky guy. He does have a pretty strong prey drive and didn't pass his initial cat test. We need to do more testing with small dogs and kids.

Chops was adopted in 2010 and had a long happy life with his family. He passed away in 2019 and will be missed.

Diamond just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race track. Both of her races listed were at Derby Lane and she came in last in both of them so was moved to Daytona Beach in hopes she would do better there. She did not show much promise there either in schooling so was retired very young. Diamond won't turn two until February 3rd. She is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 52lbs. She has silver fur between her black brindle stripes so is beautiful and unique. Her sire is Mankato and her dam is Keeper Bow Show. Diamond's trainer says she is very friendly and just wants to cuddle. She is going to make a very loving pet. She is a very laid back girl for one so young. She loves to have a good run every now and then but mostly just wants to snuggle. She is a pretty quiet girl so may be OK for apartment living. Diamond passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. More as we get to know her.

Diamond was adopted in 2015 and was renamed Bella. She crossed the bridge in 2019.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Weidmans from Hephzibah , GA 2/14/15

Ashley is an older girl that is being returned because her owner is having a baby and moving. She has been with her family since 2010. Ashley is a brindle girl that is around 60lbs. She will turn 10 August 18th. Her sire is Matt's Comet and her dam is RJ Blown Away. She has 10 races listed starting out at Southland in Arkansas in schooling in 2007 but was quickly moved to Florida for the rest of her races. She didn't show much promise so was quickly retired. Ashley is a very shy girl that is likely to be pretty overwhelmed by losing her family and having to move to a new location and adjust to a new family. She will be checked over by our vet to be sure she is healthy when she comes in and will have a full dental and anything she needs. Because she is an older girl she will qualify for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Ashley did pass her cat and small dog test. She has not been around kids much but has done OK with the ones she has seen. Because she is a timid girl she would probably do better in a home with quiet kids rather than loud rowdy ones. More after we get her. This is a photo of her taken when she first arrived years ago. She has more white on her face now.

Dutchess had a long happy life and passed away in 2019. She will be missed.

Sage is a very tall leggy girl that was the tallest dog on this dog haul, even taller than the boys. She raced at 71lbs. She is 3 and won't celebrate her 4th birthday until December 1st. Her sire is the famous English racer Balligari and her dam is Elysium. We adopted out her her littermate Happy Stutz who has been a sweet, nearly perfect guy. So far she seems just as sweet as her brother. She has a beautiful bright red coat and a white chest and some white toes. She has ears that go straight up sometimes just like her mom's. She has 78 races to her credit racing at Wheeling in WV, and Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando in Fl most recently. She had a minor injury in April and was rehabbed at the track by her trainer before they sent her to us. She is not limping and we can't tell that she even had an injury now. She seems like a calm, friendly girl. She traveled well on the way up from the track and quietly settled into her crate when she arrived. So far she has been well behaved and quiet in her crate. She is playful and loves to play with toys. She really wants to please so the smallest correction works to stop any mistake. She passed her small dog test with a boston terrier but she is definitely not going to be cat safe. She was very excited about the cat she met and even a smack by kitty claws didn't make her back off.

Sage was adopted by the Chapman family in 2013 and passed away in October of 2019 just before her 10th birthday. RIP Sage you will be missed.

Blade is a sweet, well behaved boy that is pretty calm.

He seems to like kids and chose to go up to children at a PetSmart meet and greet. He is a friendly sweet little guy. His sire is Swahili Eile and his dam is To Shy to Say. We got Blade very young and he didn't have much of a race career but did go through some training to race.

Blade was rehomed with the Oldman family in 2012 and had a happy life with them until he passed away in September of 2019. He was the sweetest dog they ever had and will be missed.

Gladiator just retired from the Orlando track. He is a gorgeous, red brindle male with white toes, chest and white tail tip that raced at 75lbs. He just turned 4 on July 14th. Gladiator was a good racer that raced in 100 races. He actually competed in a couple of stakes races and raced at 7 tracks. He is a happy, friendly guy but is a calm, well behaved guy too. Gladiator's sire is the famous Craigie Whistler. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track but did show a little interest at first in the outdoor cats at his foster home so we listed him as trainable with cats. He has done great on his potty training in his foster home and responds very well to the word "No" the rare times that he needs to be corrected. He did great with a house full of visiting children last week and seems to like kids. He likes to play with toys by throwing them up a few times. Then he is ready for another nap. He loves to lay outside in the sun. Gladiator seems like he might be a good watch dog because he will sometimes alert you when he sees his own reflection in a window at night. He is pretty sure that other dog is up to no good. He is normally quiet in his crate and crates willingly. He is a very good boy and seems to have adjusted to life in a home with no problem at all. He is a great guy!

Gladiator was adopted in 2012 and had a wonderful life with his family until he passed away in September of 2019. RIP Glad you are very missed.

Dash is a red male that just arrived from the track in Orlando. He is a sweet, very calm, guy that never caused any trouble at the track according to his trainers. They felt he would be a very easy, sweet dog for just about anyone. He is a mid sized male and weighed 71lbs at the vet. His birthday is Sept 7 2008. So far Dash has been very quiet and very calm at his foster home. He doesn't make a peep in his crate and sleeps thought the night. He seems to walk pretty good on leash already and didn't have any trouble the first time he tried steps. He passed his cat and small dog test with flying colors too. He loves people and was a big hit at his first meet and greet calmly going up to each person and leaning into them wanting to snuggle. He never got nervous or excited even in the busy Expo center with all the people, noises and things going on. He just kept greeting each person as if it was his job. He was very gentle with kids and really seemed to like them. If you want a handsome, very laid back guy Dash may be the one for you. He is one of the more laid back 3 year olds we have met.

Dash was adopted in April of 2012 and was with them until he crossed the bridge in mid 2019. He will be missed.

Dalma came from the Jacksonville Fl race track. She raced 132 races at 62lbs. She raced most of her races at Orange Park but also raced at Derby Lane. She is a pretty black girl that celebrated her 4th birthday on Feb 1st. Her sire is Daddy Warbarks and her dam is Zoomn Cheri. Dalma's last race was in January. She had a couple of seizures at the track and her owner decided it was best to retired her. She was at the track kennel from January until May waiting on a group that could take her and didn't have any more seizures even without medication to prevent them. The stress of the move from the track triggered another seizure so we put her on medication to prevent more and she has had no seizures since she started the medication. The medication is inexpensive and she may not even need to be on medication once she is in a permanent home since high excitement and stress seem to trigger her seizures. Dalma is a sweet, happy girl that is very very loving. She will curl up in your lap and loves to snuggle with people. She is very friendly with people and gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home. Her current foster home would love to dog sit for her after adoption if she is adopted in the area. Dalma did pass her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She likes the small children in her foster home. Dalma does potty nicely on leash now so may be OK for apartment living.

Dalma was adopted by the Searles family of Summerfield NC 11/2/14. She had a wonderful home with them until she passed away in 2019.

Potzy passed his cat test but was a little interested in the cat at first so will need some supervision with new cats at first. He passed his small dog test and is living in a foster home with dogs and cats. He is a friendly, happy guy that is very devoted to people and wants to be with his family doing whatever they are doing. He isn't shy or nervous and is very outgoing and loving. Potzy has great house manners and picked up on potty training without a problem. Potzy doesn't like his crate much and is vocal when left in one so would not be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse. He has been quiet and well behaved when left out of crate, even by himself.

Gaby just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and was raised on the Bolton Farm near the track. It is a smaller beautiful farm where the dogs get lots of one on one attention. Gaby Is a pretty red girl that raced 179 races at 63lbs. She was a good racer, racing much of her career at the top A level there. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Waubun Brenda. Gaby will turn 5 on June 8th. Gaby is a friendly, happy girl. She passed her cat test easily and seemed like she already knew that cats have claws and refused to go near the kitty. She is also fine with small dogs. Gaby is very sweet and will sit and lean up against the front of your legs for attention. She is a waggy, happy girl that doesn't seem fazed by anything new so seems like she will do well very fast with her new family. She is very loving and just loves to be close to her humans. She did like the small kids she met briefly but has not been around small kids long term yet. She can complain a bit about being in her kennel, so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Gaby is adapting very well to her foster home and is such a beautiful sweet girl!

Gaby was adopted by the Reich family 4/18/18. She was renamed Ginger. Her time with them was too short. She crossed the bridge in 2019.

Girl Friend is a cute red girl with a little black on her nose and cute floppy ears that flop toward the front. Pay no attention to her racing name- Crazy Girl - there is nothing crazy about her. She is actually very friendly and sweet. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is Fast and Furious. She raced at 64lbs and celebrated her 2nd birthday on May 28th. Girl Friend has 28 races to her credit - 1 win and quite a few placements. She raced at Sarasota and retired from Sanford Orlando. She travels well. She was good with the cats, small dog, ferret and two children in her first foster home, and equally peaceful with the dominant dogs in her second foster home. She is very affectionate and loves attention, always choosing to be with her humans no matter what is going on around her. She will crate and rest quietly at night or when left alone, but she would prefer to be out and about with her pack. Girl is smart and learns quickly so it is important that her family supervises her and teaches her what they want her to do rather than just letting her make up her own rules. She loves to play and would love a home with a fenced yard that she can run and play in.

Mac is an extra large, loving greyhound that raced at a huge 84lbs and is well over 90lbs now. During his time at Orange Park track adoption kennel (GPA of NE Florida) he was a kennel favorite. His sire is the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey so he is a half brother to a bunch of the dogs we have placed. His dad seems to throw extra sweet pups and Mac is a twin to another big guy that we already placed. He was born on March 21st of 2009 so he is 4 years old. This boy is a happy, loving guy that loves everyone he meets. He seems like a fun guy that bounces happily when he meets you but so far has crated quietly so can be calm and lazy too. He is food motivated so should be easy to train to do tricks or obedience. Mac is a big lovable guy that is going to make a great pet. He is cat and small dog friendly so could live with either. Mac has been in an adoptive home for over a year now and was returned to us because they had a child and no longer had time for a dog. He is wonderful with kids and should be an easy pre acclimated pet for some lucky family. He was returned to us very overweight so we are working on getting some weight off of him. The photos we have of him are ones when he first retired and was in great shape.

Mac was adopted by his foster family 11/21/14. He lived with the Hayes family and helped take care of baby squirrels and other wildlife they rehabbed. He was a very special guy. He passed away in 2019. He will be missed.

Vulcan is a dark brindle male greyhound that initially came in from the Birmingham Race Track. He also raced very briefly at Palm Beach and Ebro tracks in Florida. He only had a total of 14 races and only won one of those. He didn't place in any of his other races and usually finished last. His sire is Heart Rumble and his dam is BI's Owens Girl. Vulcan turned 3 on October 2nd. Vulcan was in a home since December of 2014 and did great there.  Vulcan was returned to us because of a divorce and a move. His first owner was heartbroken to have to give him up. Vulcan was quickly adopted out again in November of 2015 but is being returned to us again because they don't have a fenced yard and they think he would enjoy running around more. Vulcan is so good with cats and small animals that he was living with an exotic animal rehabber and he was good with all the wild animals there. Rick is a friendly boy that is very well behaved and sweet. Neither of his previous homes have reported any behavior problems.

Vulcan was adopted by his foster home in 2016 and crossed the bridge in July of 2019 after a bout with a tick disease caused an immune disorder that he wasn't able to survive. He was known by his family as BDE Best Dog Ever and was the heart dog of his owner Amy. Vulcan was a goofy, bouncy boy that loved people. Vulcan was found most Saturdays at the Greyhound Crossroads tent at the Augusta Market and wooed many potential adopters. Vulcan was a certified therapy dog. He was lost far too young, he turned 6 October 2nd of 2018.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Glymph Family of Mauldin SC

Harriet raced very briefly at Jefferson County Kennel Club and retired from there Nov 2nd of 2005 after 6 maiden races. She finished last in all but one of those and even quit running in one. Harriet's sire was WW Time Warp and her dam was Pure Fortress. She was born Nov 7th of 2003. Harriets was very shy and timid when we got her. She bit her first owner after he chased her and cornered her trying to catch her. He wanted her euthanized because of the bite, but we were able to save her and get her back. The Glymph family took her to foster and decided to keep her in 2006. She quickly got over her shyness and became a true Diva. Harriet's adoptive mom took her lure coursing and amateur racing and she was very good at that once she became more confident. She became a champion. She never bit anyone again and was the sweetest dog, even doing meet and greets. Harriet became queen of the Beach at our Annual Beach Bound Hounds vacation in Myrtle Beach in 2017 at nearly 14 years old. She passed away at 15. She was a diva and the sunshine of her mom's life.

Be sure to look at his other pictures to see a really cute one that shows how sweet he is when he was telling his trainer at the track goodbye.

Fostered by (location):
Lindenfeld in Westminster SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Writt Family of Taylors 6/29/13

Noble is a stunning large, white male with a black patches. He is very flashy, drop dead gorgeous and even trots with a prance. He weighs 85lbs and is an extra large guy. Noble is not a retired racer. He has been in a home since he was a puppy so has great house manners and is already home acclimated. If he does anything wrong all you have to do is say something and he will stop right away. He really wants to please people. Noble hasn't been out a lot and does get a little stressed in new situations with people he doesn't know. He is a bit timid and isn't initially as friendly as our more confident dogs and tends to stand back a bit at our meet and greets at PetSmart. He takes a day or two to really bond with new people but once formed that bond is very strong and he will follow his new owner around and ask for affection. Noble will quietly stand leaning against you or put his head in your lap for petting. He is very good with children.Noble was given to us to rehome because he was not getting along with a new male greyhound in the home. From what we have seen Noble is not a confident dog and can be uncomfortable with new dogs coming in to his home large or small. Although he lived with small dogs in his previous home and was fine with them, we would rather not put him in a home with small dogs. Noble does love to play with the other greyhounds and a wolfhound in his foster home and we have seen none of his previous behavior except if dogs he doesn't know run up and get in his face. His previous owner had quite a few dogs and felt that may have been part of the problem and thought he would do better in a home with fewer dogs where he would get more attention. Noble passed a recent cat test with very little interest so we think he may be trainable with indoor cats. Noble will need a home with a fenced yard because we haven't been able to get him to go potty on leash even one time during his walks. He just likes to trot around looking for that perfect spot and is much too polite to go while on leash. Noble likes to go for walks and travels very well. He is a really stunning guy that is already home acclimated and is going to make someone a very nice pet.

Sam passed his cat test and his small dog test so is fine to live with either. He has been friendly with the children he has met. Sam is a bouncy, friendly boy. He is the rare greyhound that could be a watch dog. If he hears or see something outside that doesn't belong there he has a big deep growly bark.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bowden Family of Greenville SC 12/24/14

Bo never raced. He was born on November 4th in 2005. Bo has had a long run of bad luck with adoptive homes. He was adopted out as a young dog and was in his first home for 4 years until 2011 when one of them started having trouble with a dog allergy. He was adopted out to another family in 2011 but was found running loose in April of 2014. His previous family didn't respond to attempts to contact them to see if they wanted their dog back so the family that found him decided to keep him. Bo has been whining a lot in that home and didn't appear to be happy, so now he is being rehomed again. His sire is the famous Fortified Power and his dam is M's Elizabeth. He just turned 9 on Nov 4th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200! Bo is a handsome boy that loves to be by your side. Bo absolutely loves children and slept in the bed with a 7 year old boy in one of his previous homes. He gets along well with other dogs small and large. Bo is a fun boy, and is constantly making his foster family laugh. Even though he is an older guy, he is still playful and loves to run around in the yard. After a very short run can usually be found laying on the couch or bed nearest his people. He is such a loving happy guy and so cute too! Bo seems like he has too high of a prey drive towards cats to be able to live with them but has been living with small dogs and is wonderful with them. Bo can be vocal if left alone so wouldn't be a good dog for an apartment or townhouse. If you want a dog that is already used to living in a home that loves kids, this is your guy!

Bo ended up being adopted by his foster family. He lived a long life and passed away in July of 2019 at the age of 13.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Marks family 10/10/15

John Reese's litter were all named for Person of Interest TV show characters. John was an amazing racer, racing at one of the top tracks in the country and at the very top level AA. He even won a Stakes race which are limited to the very best racers at that track. We feel like we should ask him for his autograph because he was such a star. He raced 139 races mostly at the very top levels. John turned 4 on July 5th. His sire is Gable Dodge and his dam is O Jays. John was understandably a kennel favorite and is missed by his trainer. He has a wonderful, outgoing, curious personality. John is a big stocky, muscular guy that raced at 78lbs. He has put on a little weight since he retired and was 80lbs at the vet's. He loves people and will put his paws up to give hugs, which we discourage because of his size, even though it is cute. John is quiet and is being fostered in an apartment. He learned how to do the stairs and elevator there the first day and is not stressed by new things. He is very strong and excitable and pulls on leash, so his foster home is working on that. John is just so curious and wants to go see everything and greet everyone on walks, but is learning to control his enthusiasm.  John was initially very curious about the cat until the cat slapped him. He quickly decided not to go back near the cat. We think he is trainable, especially with a cat that would stand his ground and slap him if he shows any interest at all. Because John is big, strong and excitable we have him marked "older children" only. We don't think he would intentionally harm a kid, but he could accidentally knock down a toddler by jumping on him or excitedly bumping into him. John would probably love to play with older kids though. Even though he is higher energy for a greyhound, he still is good when left home alone and just plays quietly with his toys, has no potty accidents and isn't destructive. He is very smart and learned in a day how to work lever type door handles in the house. John loves to chase a squeaker tennis ball and a few minutes in the morning and evening playing with the ball helps wear him out. This would be a wonderful greyhound for agility, obedience or other dog sports since he isn't the typical couch potato. He would love hiking and doing things with his family. John is a handsome, loving guy that is full of personality that is going to make a fun pet for a lucky family.

Johnny was adopted by the Marks family in October of 2015. He had a wonderful life and was very loved until he passed away suddenly of unknown causes on 6/24/19.

John is a pretty large guy that raced at 78lbs but has put on a little weight since he retired and is very large.

Hope is a tiny little girl with the prettiest dark, red brindle coat. Her birthday is April 20th 2006. She is just a bit shy and unsure of herself at first mainly just around men but warms up fast. Hope never raced because she would not chase the lure and would just stop in the middle of the track during training. She tested cat and small dog safe and was even a bit afraid of the cats so would be fine living with either. Hope has been in an adoptive home since she was just 18 months old. When Hope's owner had to go into a nursing home, one of her caregivers took Hope temporarily but eventually we had to find her a permanent home. She lived with another older female greyhound in her previous home and seems to get along well with others. Hope is already home acclimated and is a sweet, well behaved girl. She crates well and likes to go there during thunderstorms which scare her. Some of the photos of Hope were taken when she was 18 months old when she first retired from the track but she looks nearly the same now. There are a couple of recent full length photos of her under her other photos - the one of her stretching and the photo of her with the lab. This is a cute sweet girl that is already house trained and used to living in a home. She grins when she is happy to see you and will lay at your feet and make little moaning noises to get your attention - mainly if no one is petting her. She is such a cute girl with the sweetest personality!

Hope was with the Lindenfeld family until she passed away from Bone Cancer on May 31st of 2019 at 13 years old. She will be missed.

In June of 2018 she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that paralyzed her overnight. She was in ICU for 10 days and spent months recovering. She was a fighter and bounced back. You would never have known she was sick and her family called her their "Miracle Girl". She did have to continue taking meds to keep it under control but they stopped working in May of 2019 and she had a flare up that she couldn't recover from.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ferguson Family of Augusta GA 4/18/18

Lancelot is a gorgeous big shiny black male that raced at 82 lbs. He just came in from the Birmingham Adoption Kennel but didn't actually race there. He was sent there because they transport dogs to adoption groups across the country. He actually raced 132 races mostly at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced briefly at Palm Beach in FL. He raced most of his career at the mid levels of racing but did get up to the top A level a few times and did win some races. He retired February 12th and has been waiting since then for a group to take him. His sire is Turbo Lennie and his dam is Gable India. Lancelot was way too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them, but he did fine with a small Italian greyhound he met after sniffing it and realizing it was a dog. He should be fine to live with small dogs with a proper introduction. At a distance he tends to mistake most small critters for bunnies though. Lancelot is a big strong boy that needs some work on walking on leash because he wants to check out everything at once. He is very friendly and happy and just a sweet, confident, social guy. Because he is so big and strong we think he would do best in a home with no small kids that he could accidentally knock over. Lancelot could be your knight in shining, black, furry armor! What a gorgeous guy!

Lancelot had to have emergency surgery May16th of 2019. He came through the surgery fine and was sent home. He passed away at home in his sleep the night after his surgery. He was so young and only was with his family a year. He will greatly be missed.

Ace is a beautiful brindle male that just retired from the race track where he was racing at 76lbs. He is pretty young at just 2.5 years old and was born on April 17th, 2009. He is living with a cat and the 7 and 3 year old children in his foster home so should be fine in a home with cats, kids or small dogs. Ace has really adjusted to home life quickly. He is a total love bug and will come up and lean on you to get petted - we call it a "greyhound hug". Ace is also a kisser. He loves to play with squeakie toys and gathers them all up and hoards them in his crate after he is done playing with them. His favorites are the stuffed animals. Ace enjoys running and playing in the backyard and loves playing with the other greyhounds in his foster home. His foster home says he is very intelligent and picks up on things quickly. This is a sweet, friendly, fun, boy that seems like the type that will easily fit into just about any home.

Ace lived in a wonderful home for over 7 years. His family had to help him cross the bridge due to nerve damage and pain that continued to get worse after a tumble down some stairs. Rest In Peace Ace.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Crouch Family of Greenville SC 3/1/15

Harmon is a red male that is a big traveler racing at 5 different tracks - Abiline KS, Bluffs Run and Dubuque in IA, then on to Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando tracks in Florida. He had 51 races to his credit and raced at 71lbs so is a medium sized male. His sire is Iceman Brutus and his dam is Rocking Jade. He was born on March 19th 2010 and retired at 3 years old. Harmon rode well on the trip and didn't seem to be phased at all by traveling. He hops into the van on his own and doesn't need a boost. He settled nicely in his crate the first night and didn't make a peep. He also potties well on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard and may be a good choice for apartment living. Harmon is very friendly and happy and is a real leaner going up to strangers and wrapping himself around them for love. He needs some work on walking on leash because he is excited to check everything out and can't decide where to go first so ends up doing a lot of zig zagging but settles down after a little ways and walks beside you. He is smart and learns quickly. Harmon did great at his first meet and greet at a hockey game. He loved all the people he met adults and kids. The noises and crowd didn't phase him. He had a great time! He met some small dogs outside that were barking and running and he didn't pay any attention to them at all so appears to be very small dog tolerant. He has been living in a foster home with cats and a ferret and is great with both. This is a very sweet loving guy!

Harmon was adopted and with a family for a couple of years until 2015, but was found running loose and taken to Animal Control. He was held there for quite awhile before we were notified and picked him up. His former family never looked for him or notified us that he was loose in that week. When we notified them that we had him, they declined to take him back because of personal issues. Harmon had developed some issues with his space and seemed like a completely different dog. He no longer liked going out to meet and greets and wasn't good with kids. He was very happy and comfortable in his foster home though, so his foster home decided that they would just keep him. The Crouch family had him until April 22, 2019, when Harmon took a tumble running in his backyard and injured his back badly. He was in a lot of pain and his family helped him cross the bridge. He was very loved and will be missed by his family.

Tory is a sweet, waggy girl with a very loving personality. She was born on Christmas eve of 2007. She passed her cat and small dog test at the track so should be able to live with either. She raced at 63lbs. She probably would not do well in an apartment because she does not like to potty on leash. Since she needs her privacy she would do best in a home with fenced yard. This is one SWEET SWEET girl that has been very well behaved in her foster home. Tory is very loving and will bond to her family quickly. If you look at her old photos you will see her amazing transformation. When she arrived she had fleas and had a lot of hair loss from them. Now that her hair has grown back in she is a sleek, shiny, beauty as you can see from her most recent photo.

Tory was adopted by the Griffin family 7/23/11. She lived a wonderful life with them until she passed away January 17th of 2019 at 11.5 years old. RIP Tory you will always be daddy's little girl.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Smith Family of Durham, NC 4/8/12

Fancy is a cute little girl that raced at 61lbs. Her birthday is August 2nd and she is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design. Fancy is already home acclimated and has been living in her racing owner's home since she retired in October. Her racing owner already has a number of pet greyhounds so is not able to keep Fancy, even though she would like to. Fancy has great house manners and is very well behaved. She will give a quick bark if she needs to go out to potty and another at the door to let you know she is done and ready to come back in. She LOVES people and will stick close to you if she is awake. She will put her front legs and chest in your lap on a chair to snuggle with you. So far she has not gotten up on furniture though except for this, but we are pretty sure she would with a little encouragement. Fancy loves to play outside and will play with toys outside and entertain herself even if no humans or dogs want to play with her. She seems to really like playing with balls. She was living with quite a few other large dogs of different breeds and gets along great with males and other females. She has even done great with the small 13lb Italian Greyhound in her foster home. She also passed her cat test and even seemed to like the cat as she rubbed up against it - until it smacked her for it. Then she decided it was best not to be too friendly with cats. She is more focused on interacting with the humans than playing with the other dogs so might be OK as an only dog too. Fancy crates well and is quiet in her crate except for a little whining at meal times.

Fancy was adopted by the Smith family of Durham NC on 4/8/12. She was renamed Fern and had a wonderful home with them until she passed away 1/19/19 at 10.5 years old. She will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
(Doby)Charlotte Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Doby Family (7/30/10)

Vanna came from John and Diane Galui's kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She was a kennel favorite of Diane's while racing because of her sweet, friendly, calm disposition. The fact that she is so beautiful probably played a part in that too. Vanna raced at 64lbs and her DOB is 5/19/07. Her sire is the famous Castor Troy and her dam is Rx Sensation. She had a long race career at Palm Beach first and then finished up at Sanford Orlando. Vanna wants to stay near people and will often lean up against you. She travels well and seems to like to go.  She was very spoiled at the race track and they said she expected special treatment and is a bit of a Diva. She seems to have a very low prey drive and had no interest in chasing small dogs or cats. This is a super sweet girl that even stands out in a kennel full of dogs. Vanna loves to play with toys and likes rope toys and stuffed animals best. She will throw them around and pounce on them.

Update after adoption: Vanna was adopted a couple of times but kept coming back to her foster home. They finally decided that she was going to stay - she had known she was supposed to all along. The Doby family adopted her on 7/30/2010 and she was with them the rest of her life. Vanna promoted greyhound adoption at Charlotte and Salisbury adoption events and lived a long life. She passed away on 3/18/2019 as an old lady after a seizure that she didn't recover from. She was a diva and a one of kind dog. She liked to kill snakes even though she gotten bitten several times by copperheads. She was the best meet and greet dog ever and her dad is really going to miss her.

Fostered by (location):
Clark (Woodruff, SC)
Adoption Status: Congrats to the Ahl Family of Myrtle Beach 6/27/12

Hot Dog came from the track adoption kennel in Jacksonville Florida and he raced at 67lbs. He is tall, narrow, and on the thin side so should max out at between 70 and 75lbs at a good pet weight. This is a friendly, happy, calm boy that has been very well behaved since he arrived in his foster home. He has had no accidents in the house and is very quiet in his kennel. He is a grinner and will happily grin up at you when happy or excited. He is a gorgeous black male with white socks and a white chest. Very flashy! Hot Dog was born Nov 17th 2005. He was a very successful racer that won a lot of races and raced a long time. He crates well and quietly so might be OK as an apartment or townhouse dog. His foster mom was sick recently and he laid right by her side the entire time watching over her. He is just so sweet! He is very good with children.This is a dog that was suggested to us as one that would be a good family dog because he has been around the children of his racing trainer often and was very good with them. Even though he is calm he does have a silly side and is likely to play bow to you trying to get you to play with him. The play only lasts for a little while because Hot Dog is a typical greyhound couch potato. Hot Dog needs a home without cats, he is just too interested in them. He was fine with small dogs when he was introduced to them one on one and allowed to sniff but at a distance he can mistake them for bunnies or squirrels so may do better living in a home with medium sized dogs. He loves to play with other dogs but only for a very short time. Typically our non cat friendly dogs take months longer to adopt than our cat friendly ones. If you do not have cats please consider adopting one of our sweet non cat safe dogs like Hot Dog.

Hot Dog was adopted by the Ahl family of Myrtle Beach in June of 2012. They called him Hottie and he lived a long happy life with them and passed away 3/22/19 at 13.5 years old. They say he was the sweetest boy of the 11 greyhounds they have had over the years. He will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
McManis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fox family of Aiken SC 10/20/18

Boomer is a brindle boy that raced at 72lbs. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Speedy Petal. He only raced 18 races at Southland in Arkansas and broke his hock October 3 of 2013, back when he was only 2. The break was splinted there by a vet and he was sent to us for rehab. Our vets also checked his leg and agreed that he would heal up fine in a splint and the break wouldn't require surgery. Boomer's break healed up nicely and he was adopted in December of 2013. He was returned to us for rehoming in 2017 because of financial problems, that made a move in with relatives necessary. Boomer was adopted quickly then and has been in a home for over a year. Boomer has just been returned again because his mom's health is failing. She is no longer able to care for him. This sweet boy has just had some bad luck over the years. Boomer likes to go on short walks and is great on leash. He can run around and do whatever he feels like doing, but probably wouldn't enjoy long hikes or jogs due to the old injury. He does favor the leg sometimes. Boomer turned 7 on August 11th. He is a sweet, very calm boy that is very good and already home acclimated. He is a little timid at first and a bit overwhelmed but warms up. He is very lazy and is happy to just have a soft dog bed to lay on. He isn't a dog that follows you or bothers you for attention. Boomer potties nicely on leash so may not need a fenced yard. He is a gorgeous, brindle boy with the prettiest eyes. Boomer has lived with cats and small dogs in his first home. When Boomer was first with us he loved his crate and was very quiet in it while he was on crate rest for the broken leg. He was so quiet in his crate we felt he may be a great apartment dog. He would probably not be able to do a lot of stairs due to his old injury and would at least need an apartment on the ground floor. He would be perfect for someone that didn't have much time or energy for walking and exercising dogs. His former owner says he loves kids and she is hoping that he gets a home with a child. The pictures are from when he first arrived and was younger.

Boomer passed away in February of 2019 after developing Bone cancer. He was only in his final home a few months after his return. He will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Roeben Chapman Family of Rock Hill SC 8/3/18

Rulz just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced 127 races. Rulz was a good racer starting out his career at the top track in the country, Southland. He won some races there and got up to the A level. He was moved to Orlando in March of 2017 and has been there racing since. He is a rare blue brindle which means he has gray stripes instead of black stripes like most brindles. Rulz will turn 4 on September 6th. His sire is Surf Lorian and his dam is Travel N Time. He is a very calm guy that gets along very well with all the other dogs in the kennel. He is very well behaved and very sweet. We have been waiting on him to retire since we met him. Rulz traveled well and quickly settled himself on a dog bed as soon as he reached his foster home. He is a calmly friendly guy that seeks out attention and love calmly. He gives sweet kisses too. Wood floors and steps don't seem to phase him. He settled into home life right away. Rulz passed his cat test and small dog tests without much interest. He liked the small children he met too.

Rulz was adopted by the Chapman family of Rock Hill SC in August of 2018 and was renamed Tupelo. He had a very short but happy life with them before contracting an illness that took his life in January of 2019. His vets were unable to identify what caused his seizures and severe illness. Tupelo will be missed by his family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Epp Family in Jamaica Plain MA 6/17/17

Cody just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is an extra large male that is 88lbs. He is so tall that he wouldn't fit into the standard crate at the race track so they had to fix a special one for him to give him enough room. He is very tall and lanky with long legs and a long tail that touches the ground. He is a young guy that was only at the track for a few schooling races and just was so big and uncoordinated that they didn't think he was cut out to be a racer. So he never had one official race. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until November 18th. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is D's Pride. Cody is very quiet in his crate so may be good for someone living in an apartment. He is very calm for a pup but does enjoy running in the yard sometimes. He still has some puppy fuzz that will shed out later. He is a friendly guy that is good on leash in spite of his size. He kind of leans into you on walks and likes to stay close. He travels very well and just lays down in the back of his foster mom's van.  He seems like he wants to please and do the right thing. More as we get to know this sweet, gentle giant. Cody was brought in as a special request for a previous greyhound adopter that lives in Massachusetts. He is not available.

Cody had a wonderful home for a year and a half. He passed away due to traumatic injuries after falling down a flight of stairs in January of 2019. He will be missed by his family and everyone that met him. Such a sweet loving guy!

His sire is Iruska All Star and his dam is ICU Flight Plan. Thunder is a sweet, very friendly boy that loves people. He is very calm and well behaved. Thunder turned 4 on May 17th. Thunder seemed to be very interested in the cats when he arrived at the vet's office so even though he hasn't had an official cat test, it looks like he will need a home with no kitties. He is a friendly happy guy so far. He has done fine with the small dog he met and just sniffed him politely. Thunder has been doing great in his foster home and is a very nice guy.

Thunder was adopted by the Graham family in 2014. He was renamed Cicero and lived with his family until he passed away on 1/13/19 due to cancer. He will be missed.

Owens, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Owens Family of Simpsonville SC 10/11/05

Daisy came to us as a puppy. She was too shy to race and flunked out of training because she just was so scared that she couldn't really be handled by people. It took months of patience to be able to get this shy little girl to warm up and by that time her foster home decided to keep her. Daisy came from a farm near Tallahassee Florida and was going to race at the now closed Jefferson County Kennel Club Race Track if she had made it through training. Her farm was near that track and her owner had a couple of race kennels there. Some of her littermates weren't as shy and did race there. Daisy never actually finished her registration process and didn't get an official racing name since she flunked out of training. Daisy was born on March 15th 2004 and we got her just a little over a year later. Daisy warmed up to her adoptive family but was always afraid of children because she had never seen kids at her farm. Daisy's sire was Tame Game and her dam was Barts Cookie. We ended up placing 6 of her littermates. Only two of them were as shy as Daisy. She was one of the fuzziest greyhounds we have ever seen with a thick coat and very fuzzy tail. Daisy lived with the Owens family for 13 years and passed away at 4.5 years old in October of 2018. Be sure to look at her other pictures to see how much her coloring changed over the years.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Wiltsie family of Duncan 8/16/16

Willy came in from the Palm Beach Race track. He never actually raced there. In schooling races he would try to chase the lure but could only run slowly around the track and couldn't keep up with the other greyhounds at all. So he retired without an official race. When we took him to our vet we found out there was a reason that he couldn't run. He has a very weak heart that is failing. Our vet guesses that Willy only has about a year to live. Our vet decided to adopt him and give him the best care and meds he can possibly have in what little time he has left. Willy is a sweet, brindle boy that is very loving. His sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Rosalina. He is a very young guy that won't even turn 2 until October 29th. 

Willy lived a great but short life with Dr Wiltsie. She was able to give him more time than she thought and he lived until September 13th 2018. Willy was also known as the Goat. He went to work with his mom at Healthpointe Veterinary Clinic and was spoiled rotten by the staff there. Goodbye sweet WillyGoat. You will be missed.

Fulton (Augusta, GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted to Plauche Family of Brunswick, GA 3/10/12

Kareem has been in a home before so is home acclimated and has good house manners. He has lived with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. He is a friendly, loving guy and very sweet. He is a smaller guy that raced at just 69lbs. Kareem's birthday is December 12th. Kareem's only negative is that he is very food motivated and has shown some possessiveness over his food occasionally. We are working on that with him. Because of that we think he would do better in a home with no children even though he has lived with children and has always been gentle with them. Kareem is such a gorgeous guy!

Kareem was called Mr Big after he was adopted and was with his family nearly 7 years. He passed away on October 1st of 2018. He is remembered as the sweetest, silliest, funniest, snuggliest, most loving boy his owners could ever have asked for. He will be missed terribly. Run free and fast, big guy.
