Speckles is big for a female at 72lbs. Her DOB is 9/29/21. Her sire is Destini Fireball and her dam is Destini Catalina. Speckles is a gorgeous girl with such a lovely personality, it’s hard not to fall in love with her! She is a very friendly and social girl. She can be a bit reserved on first meeting, but once she has you figured out, she’ll quickly blossom into the outgoing, fun sweetheart that she really is! Speckles is very dog social and loves to hang out with her other Greyhound friends. She may be retired, but Speckles still likes to keep active. She loves a run around the yard and to get a quick zoomie out of her system! Speckles is a fantastic dog with a wonderful personality. She is social, sweet and an all-round gorgeous dog! She would thrive in a home with lots of love and affection, but also one with enough space for her zoomies!

Pet/Kennel Name:
Andy
Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Brazelton family of Evans SC, 5.18.24

Andy just arrived from Australia where he raced 25 races. He only won one of those races and retired June 13th of 2023. He raced at Temora, Young, Warragul, Traralgonn, Warrnambool, Healesville, and Geelong. His sire is Peter Rocket and his dam is Destini Jaguar.  He will turn 4 on August 14th. Andy is a very tiny, male racing at just 64lbs. He is a handsome, beautiful, natured dog who is still a puppy at heart! Andy's racing owner says he can come across a bit shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he’ll be stuck by your side forever. So far he has been friendly with everyone he has met since he has arrived. He goes up to small kids and adults with his tail wagging. He’s a human-social dog who just loves comfort and someone to play with! Andy can get a little spooked by unexpected noises according to his racing owner, but once he settles in, he’s a big goofball who loves to be silly and show off! We had some thunderstorms while transporting him and he didn't seem to be worried by them and traveled really well. He’s still a young boy and so he can be playful, but only in short spurts. He would definitely suit a home with an active owner(s) and maybe teenagers/older children to play with. Don’t be worried if you’re someone who is away from home for a lot of the day, Andy is happy to have a bit of activity or playtime in the morning and then chill out for the rest of the day. Andy has lived with working sheep dogs and a Border Collie, but is happy in his own company. He has lived with older female greyhounds, but has been friendly with all the dogs he has met and traveled well with another male and 2 females. Andy is a lovely, loyal and sweet dog with the heart of a puppy. A house would quickly become a home with Andy in it. Andy was fully vetted in Australia and is microchipped. His ear tattoo is VJRNH. So far Andy has been calm and very well behaved since he has arrived, except for when he sees squirrels. Waggy, happy and friendly. He was great with the small, white Italian Greyhound he met. He was very curious about the cat he met and sniffed it and watched it for awhile, then would check out other things in the room. He returned and carefully sniffed the cat again. He didn't try to chase the cat and quickly backed away when the cat hissed or slapped him, then didn't want to get close to the cat again. He may be trainable with cats with some initial supervision. Andy does have one very odd quirk. Since Australia doesn't have squirrels, Andy had never seen one until he arrived. He is so excited to see them, he gets a little nuts. For such a small guy, he can pull very hard to get to a squirrel and it might be pretty hard to walk him through a neighborhood with squirrels. Other than that Andy seems like a sweet nearly perfect little guy.

Fostered by (location):
Snyder, Westminster SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Pappas Family of Columbia SC 5/11/24

Gazer just arrived from Australia. He only has two races listed at Grafton and Casino and he placed 7th and 8th. He is a handsome, black male that raced at 71lbs. His DOB is 4/25/21 so is just turning 3 years old. Gazer's sire is Ace Hi Rumble and his dam is Lucille Rumble. He is tattooed in his left ear NKCHX and is microchipped. He was neutered, had his dental and all his shots in Australia before being transported to the US. This is the description we received from his previous owner: This guy is the perfect example of the cruisy greyhound. He likes to play for a little while, but then it is nap time. His favorite pastime is food tasting. Gazer has a great attitude towards life and lives it to the fullest. He is a very happy boy and loves being with his people. He is good with the Italian Greyhound he met. Cats roam the property and although most of the dogs don't interact with them, they can observe them and don't get excited when they do see them. Children interact with regularily (8 and up). Children can lead him around and he will not pull on the lead. Gazer just wants to get in the car and settles quickly and travels well. He is crate trained and is happy to sit in his crate and watch his people while they work. 

Gazer has been a great boy since he arrived. He absolutely loves the kids he saw ages 4 to 9. He is so friendly and happy and great on leash. He has been quiet in his crate. Gazer has been living with small dogs in his foster home. He absolutely can not live with cats. He was very focused on the cat and didn't back away even when it slapped him. Gazer does travel very well. What a nice, friendly, happy guy!

Luke just arrived from Australia where he raced 19 races. He won 7 of those races. He raced at Wagga, Gosford, Muswellbrook, Angle Park, and Gawler. His last race was October 20 of 2023. Luke just turned 3 on April 12th. He raced at 66lbs so is a smaller guy. His sire is Dyna Villa and his dam is Hurricane Queen. Luke truly is a dog with a paw in each world; energetic and playful but at the same time, polite and laid back! Luke is a well-mannered boy, but he also loves to play and to get his steps in on his daily walks. He would ideally suit a home with a big back yard where he can run around and show off his zoomie skills! Don’t worry, when you’re ready to rest and put the feet up, he’ll be just as happy to lay around with you! Luke just loves the company of his human! Luke has met a variety of different dog breeds and gets on well with all of them including an Italian Greyhound he met after he arrived in the US. He has also met children of a range of ages and is the paw-fect gentleman as always with them! Luke is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, anyone would find something about him to fall in love with almost immediately! He’s a little gentleman who just wants to spend his days with you. Luke has been completely vetted in Australia and is microchipped. His ear tattoo is VKKRB. Luke needs a home with no cats, he failed his cat test and shows way too much interest in cats to be safe.

Snitzel is a cute little black female that just arrived from Australia. She only raced one race at the Capalaba Track, and came in last place, on Aug 6th of 2023. Snitzel is tiny and only weighs 56lbs. She is young and won't turn 3 until December 18th. Her sire is Flying Ricciardo and her dam is Wreath. Snitzel is a gorgeous, happy, bubbly dog just over-flowing with positive energy. She is such a wonderful little lady, and everyone’s best friend! She just adores meeting people, and her tail wags regularly turn into full body wiggles! Snitzel is so full of energy and excitement for every day and every situation. She is a very confident girl and doesn’t let a new environment or a new person faze her (that’s just the potential for a new best friend!). Snitzel is also a big fan of her little-human friends! In her previous home, the neighbourhood children would regularly visit to help handle and socialise the dogs- and Snitzel would of course perform her full body wiggle for them! It's not just humans that Snitzel loves, she is also a big fan of her 4-legged friends! Snitzel likes to play with other medium to large size dogs but is also a big fan of the smaller breeds too. She did great with a tiny Italian greyhound she met when she arrived. She may come on a little strong at first, but Snitzel quickly settles and then has another new best friend under her belt! Snitzel is still quite young and very much still a puppy at heart- she just loves to have fun and fill her day with as much happiness and play as possible! Snitzel is a big fan of the water too and just loves to dip her toes and have a splash around whenever she gets the chance! Snitzel is such a beautiful dog inside and out. You won’t meet a friendlier, happier girl. Snitzel will fall in love with you just as quickly as you fall in love with her so don’t hesitate to take this fun-loving, joyful pup home with you! She was fully vetted in Australia and is microchipped. Her ear tattoo is NKHCR. Snitzel travels really well and just got in the van and laid down. She was great with the other dogs she traveled with an the dogs she met after she arrived. She really is a precious little girl. She was curious about the cat she met at first but just sniffed and lost interest. She checked out more of the house then went back and sniffed the cat again. She seemed happy to meet a new friend.

Joyous Dream
Racing Name:
Joyous Dream
Pet/Kennel Name:
RJ
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
White and Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Livingston Family of N. Augusta 4/27/24

RJ just arrived from Australia where she raced only 11 races. She raced at Dubbo, Wagga, Temora, Broken Hill, Young, and Coonamble. She showed a lot of promise and did win 4 of her early races. She took a break from racing from June 7th to August 15 of 2023. She does have an old toe injury to one of her toes on her back foot and one toe on the same foot had to be amputated so that may be why she took the break from her racing career. When she returned to racing she wasn't as fast and raced her last race September 29th of 2023. RJ is a tiny white girl with brindle spots who just turned 3 on April 1st. She only weighs 57lbs. Her sire is the famous Fernando Bale and her dam is Joyous. RJ was spayed, had a dental and all her shots before she arrived in the US. Her owner sent us this info:

RJ is a sweetheart who was born to be a family pet. She is a soft, quiet, gentle, girl who is an all round dream to handle. She is wonderful to walk on leash and very easy going. She has experience living in a domestic household and can't wait to be in one again. RJ would suit almost any family type; a person living on their own, a couple, family with kids - she is a crowd pleaser! RJ has experience with kids already ages 6 and up and is fantastic with them. RJ is also dog social, having spent extended time in a yard with a Jack Russell. While she gets on well with small dogs, RJ prefers larger breeds such as Labradors or other greyhounds. Unfortunately RJ is not cat social, however that is about her only flaw. She is an incredibly placid, friendly and easy going dog that would be difficult not to fall in love with instantly. She is sweet and gentle and would make a wonderful companion in just about any home. 

RJ's description is very accurate. She did not pass her cat test but was great with all the other dogs and kids she met. Very calm and doesn't pull on leash. She crates well and quietly. Really sweet and well mannered.

Ace just arrived from Australia. He is a small brindle male that raced at just 66lbs. His DOB is Nov 3 2020. Ace raced 63 races and he won 11 of those and placed in many others. He raced at a lot of tracks: Wagga, Temora, Richmond, The Gardens, Taree, and Gunnedah. He retired Feb 16th. His sire is Orson Allen and his dam is Broken Talent. Ace was neutered, had a dental and all his shots before he arrived in the US. Here is the the bio his owner sent with him:

Ace is a wonder dog! A beautiful and affectionate boy who was born to be a family pet. Ace is extremely friendly and in particular loves kids ages 6 years and older. Ace just adores the hustle and bustle of a family environment. He will partake in whatever activity is happening and just loves to be involved. More than anything, Ace loves a spa day - getting pampered and having a bath are on top of his list! Ace is also dog social as he has spent some time with Blue Heeler dogs and got on well with them. Ace is a beautiful, funny and up-for-anything kind of dog who would make a wonderful addition to a family home.

We found Ace's description to be right on, except for one thing. He is a friendly, happy guy, who gives kisses and loves people. He definitely has lived in a home and has great house manners. He crated quietly and slept through the night the first night in his foster home. He loves to lay on the bed and loves to go for rides in the car. He is pretty strong and excitable wanting to check out everything and pulls on leash. So it is a good thing that he is a small guy. His description says he is dog social and gets along well with cattle dogs, but we found that he has way too high of a prey drive to live with any other smaller dogs. Medium size dogs were also out. A poodle mix that was nearly his size was also a no for him. He is very excitable around other breeds of dogs and barks and just doesn't seem to like them. He also has way too high of a prey drive to live with cats. He seems like he would do great as an only dog or in a home with another greyhound (or possibly the cattle dogs he is used to). He gets along very well with the two male greyhounds in his foster home. He loves toys, but likes to take the stuffing out. He is definitely a fun guy that seemed to really like the kids he met and everyone else... except dogs and cats.

Kylie just arrived from Alabama. She is a retired racer that raced at Southland until they closed at the end of 2022. She wasn't a great racer and only won one race in her career. She raced 58 races and did place quite a few times. She is a small girl that raced at just 58lbs. She is 4 years old and won't turn 5 until September 3rd. Kylie has been in a home in Alabama since she retired from racing but they asked us for help rehoming her. Her sire is Rico's Vintage and her dam is KL's Ruth. Kylie was vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital in Greenwood SC on 3/12/24. According to her previous owner, Kylie has a pretty high prey drive so would do best in a home with no cats or small dogs. She did not pay much attention to a small white Italian greyhound however but she may be different with small fluffy dogs that look more like bunnies or squirrels. She is a very friendly girl that wags like crazy, so hard she injured her tail the first day we had her. She loves to lay on couches and will sleep in bed with you. She bonds very fast to whoever she is with. Kylie travels well and will just get up on the seat and lay down for the trip. She is great girl!!

Blanton is a retired show greyhound that never raced. He has been in a home since birth. He is 6 years old and is a gorgeous white and brindle male that is extra large at around 100lbs. He is retired from show life and his owner asked for our help in finding him a home.  He has been fine with other large dogs that are close to his size, male and female. He plays rough though so his owner does not think he would be good with smaller dogs or cats. He is a very friendly happy guy and wouldn't mean any harm though. Just a very sweet boy.

His owner believes he would do better in a home without other dogs. He is a big boy that plays rough and can be a little pushy sometimes with other dogs. He was placed in a home with a medium sized female dog and got bitten by her when playing, so was returned to his owner. She asked us if we had a suitable family for him and we did. Eli is very friendly with people and great on leash. A really nice big boy and gorgeous.
