Upstate

Greyhounds available for adoption in the Upstate SC area around Greenville and Greenwood SC.

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.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: Please fill out the form below if you are in our adoption areas and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home.

Big Foot raced 118 races at the Orange Park Race Track in Florida and Dubuque. He retired in January of 2018 and was originally placed by Greyhounds as Pets of NE Florida, the track adoption group at Orange Park. That adoption group closed when the track did, so we place any returns that come in, like Bigfoot. He was was sent to us due to medical issues. He had nearly completely degloved his tail August 25th. Over the last month, the tail didn't heal, became infected, died and started sloughing off. He was in pain and was 9 pounds below his racing weight of 71lbs when we got him. He went straight to our vet for a tail amputation. So now Bigfoot has a short tail and is out of pain. Our vet checked him over, updated his shots and he got a fresh dental at the same time. He appears to be a healthy happy boy now and was so good at the vet's office even though he had to have been in a lot of pain when he arrived. Bigfoot is a friendly guy that loves kids and is good with cats and other dogs of all sizes. He is very quiet in his kennel so may be a good dog for apartment living. Bigfoot was born on June 22, 2014 so is 8 years old and qualifies for our senior discounted adoption donation of $250. HIs sire is Pat C Game Face and his dam is Pat C Blue Honey.
