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.

Adoption Status: Adopted to Michelle Weidman 11/5/16

Showy is a beautiful, black, female greyhound that doesn't look 8 years old at all. She hardly has any gray on her face and is a real beauty. She raced 94 races at Mobile, Bluffs Run and Palm Beach. She got up to the top A level. She raced at 66lbs and just turned 8 on April 10th. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is WW's Kool Show. Showy was sent back to the farm after her racing career was over to be a mom. She had a litter of 11 puppies in January of 2013 that are racing now. She also just weaned a litter of puppies. She came to us from the farm in Abilene Kansas and is ready for her own couch, after retiring from her second career. She is friendly and happy meeting people and is curious about her surroundings and not a bit timid. She can be a bit bossy and is quick to correct wild puppy behavior as you would expect from a momma dog. She seems like a confident, happy girl. She has been living with cats and she showed no prey drive toward a small white dog in her foster home. Because Showy is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. 

Showy was adopted in November of 2016 and called Maggie Moo. She lived a long happy life until she passed away in September of 2022 of congestive heart failure and cancer. Fly my sweet Moo Moo! Such a great mama to the Wiedman Pack!

Fostered by (location):
McGraw (Columbia, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McGraw Family of Columbia, SC 7/12/13

Katie is a very tiny, shy, black female with white toes and chest. Katie was so shy she couldn't race due to her fear of strangers. Her sire is Rhythmless and her dam is Ucme Instantly. Her birthday is September 2nd and she is 2 years old. After meeting Katie she appears to have not been socialized with humans as a puppy so is very fearful like a wild animal would be. She does not approach her foster mom yet and circles around warily still. She seems a little curious when she has food but will not take food from her but will eat it if her foster mom puts it down near her. We have placed several other unsocialized greyhounds that ended up making wonderful pets. They do take months if not a year to warm up to their new family. They do need a family that will be very patient with them. Most of the time they don't get comfortable with strangers or going out to new places and are homebodies that are happier just staying in their own familiar environment. They are normally not just fearful of people but of anything new and any change in their routine. Katie will need a home with a securely fenced yard since she is far too nervous to potty on leash outside of a fenced area. Dogs like Katie typically are too nervous to be around loud, fast moving small children so we automatically put them down as needing a home with older children only or no children. Katie will need a lot of time to learn to trust and love people but families that have worked with this type of dog say that it is so rewarding when they finally do come around. Katie is adapting to home life well and has picked out a favorite bed in the house. She has had no accidents in the house and follows the other dogs outside and back in so her foster mom hasn't had problems catching her. She gets along great with the dogs and cats in her foster home and is not shy with other dogs - just people.

Katie had a long wonderful life with the McGraw Family. She crossed the bridge in October of 2022 due to cancer. RIP

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Williams Family of Fairview NC 12/1/16

Johnny came in initially from the Boltons in Orlando, Florida. He is a big, friendly, outgoing boy that weighs 82.5 lbs. He just turned two on Halloween. He is registered as black but on closer look, he is actually a dark black brindle. His dam is Kentucky Merlot and his sire is Golden Squire. He has no races listed and was retired early. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track so should be fine to live with either. Johnny was picked as a good candidate for service dog work. He was in an adoptive home for just a little while and was returned recently because he wasn't good with their tiny dogs walking and jumping on him. Like most dogs, he doesn't like to be stepped on or bothered by other dogs of any size when laying down on a bed. 

Johnny Cash was adopted by the Williams Family of Fairview NC 12/1/16. He had a great life with them until August of 2022 when he crossed the bridge due to osteosarcoma (bone cancer).

Fostered by (location):
Smith, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Smith Family of Greenville SC, 4.8.20

Smote just retired from the Bolton Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Florida. He was raised at the Plum Creek Farm. Smote only raced 14 races. He got bumped in a race and was injured in July of 2019. He took time off to heal up and started racing again in October 2019. Smote raced a few more races and even won one of those. In his last race in October he re-injured himself. He was rehabbed, then started running in some schooling (practice) races after he was healed up. He kept getting slightly sore after his schooling sessions, so they decided to retire him. Smote shows no sign of any injury now. He is very large and very strong and excitable. Because he is so excitable and curious about everything, he pulls on leash and tries to go check out everything at once. He gets so happy to see you, he bounces around and may jump up on you. He is a big boy racing at 84lbs. Because of his enthusiastic greetings he would not do well with toddlers, small kids or elderly people that may not be steady on their feet. He seems like a big goofy guy that would never intentionally hurt anyone though. He just has no idea how big he is and is so incredibly happy all the time. He seems friendly and sweet and isn't intending to do the wrong thing, but is very active for a greyhound. He definitely needs a strong leader that will set rules and teach him how to be calm and mannerly. Smotes sire is Dyna Double One and his dam is PJ Never Ask Why. Since Smote is excited to see anything new, he was predictably very excited to see cats and small dogs. He was able to quickly re-focused on other things that he was equally excited to see. We just weren't able to get a good reading on him, so need to do more testing with him, before deciding if he would be able to live with cats or small dogs.  

Smote was adopted his foster family, the Smith Family, in April of 2020 and called Finn. He crossed the bridge too soon, after getting loose and getting hit by a car in August of 2022.

Molly originally came to us from the Sanford Orlando race track years ago. She started out racing in Abilene, then went to Derby Lane, and Palm Beach, before going to Orlando. Her owners hoped to find a track that she would be competitive at. She only won one race and finished last or close to last in most of her races so was retired after only 26 races. Molly was adopted right after she retired in 2012 and has been living in their home since. Due to a schedule change they are gone more than before and don't have time for her anymore, so have decided to rehome Molly. Her family feels like she would do better in a quiet home without small loud kids. They say she gets stressed around children. She has been living as an only dog but doesn't like being home alone for long periods so she may do better with a doggy friend she can hang out with. Molly passed her cat test at the track and is being fostered with small dogs. She is a light brindle female that raced at 60lbs, Her birthdate is 9/1/2010 so she is 8. Molly qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. She is timid at first so you should let her come to you. She enjoys sunbathing and walks. She does not like traveling or going for rides. She has never gotten up on the furniture. She is very dramatic and will scream if her legs are touched. She has never really played with toys and is a very calm girl that likes to lay around. Her sire is CTW Legendary and her dam is Seagold Jane. 

Molly was adopted in February of 2019 as a senior. She passed away in mid 2022 after a great life with her family. She will be missed.

Edge is a 78lb, red, brindle boy. He just arrived from the Melbourne Race Track Adoption Kennel but he actually did all of his 56 races at Daytona Beach. He just won 6 of his races and placed in more but wasn't really good. Edge's sire is Kiowa WW Brother and his dam is Kiowa Sharp Cay. He turns 3 on May 17th. He is a very calm boy that is a little shy at first but does warm up with time. Edge was pretty overwhelmed when he first arrived and didn't want to come out of his kennel, so he is definitely a timid guy, that will need some time to gain confidence. He did pass his cat and small dog tests at the track so should be fine to live with either. 

Edgy was adopted in April of 2015 by his foster family. He slowly came out of his shyness and made them laugh and was the best coffee buddy. They lost him to a stomach tumor August 29th of 2022. Best foster fail ever, we love ya Edgy

Linden came to us from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is an extra large white male with brindle spots that raced at 80lbs. He started racing at Naples-Ft Myers track but just couldn't keep up with the other dogs in the 4 races he ran there. He was moved to Sanford Orlando and raced one more race there, but he came in last place so he was retired. He is young and turned 2 on February 17th. Linden is pretty laid back and calm. He is friendly and seems like a sweet, gentle, giant of a dog. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is DS Mariah. Linden rode very well on the trip up from Florida and just got in the van, laid down and slept most of the way. He is very good and walks on a loose leash most of the time, unless he gets startled by something. He does startle with some new things.  A bike going by startled him and a loud-speaker scared him, but he isn't bothered by thunderstorms or even all the motorcycles driving by our meet and greet at a Harley shop. He has a lot of new things to be introduced too and should stay on a shorter leash and maybe wear a harness until he gets more comfortable. Linden has been good with the kids and small dogs he has met.

Linden was adopted in September of 2015.He had a great life with his family for the next 7 years until he crossed the bridge August 27th of 2022. Always in our hearts.

Sookie just arrived after spending more than a week in a Gaffney SC shelter. She was found running loose and was picked up. She was identified by the tattoos in her ears. Sookie had been adopted years ago in Florida by Greyhounds As Pets of NE Florida and that adoption group contacted her owners. The owners decided not to pick her up from the shelter, so we were asked to help with rehoming her. Sookie is a sweet older lady that is 10 years old now. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 57lbs. She turned 10 on May 12th. Her sire is Fuzzy's Cannon and her dam is WBF Sugar Buzz. Her foster family says she is a happy, friendly girl that is well behaved and pretty spunky for an older lady. She has been into our vet at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin and has been given a clean bill of health. She had not had good dental care and had to have most of her teeth removed but other than that she is healthy and very happy. Because she is a senior she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. 

Sookie was adopted by a family in Atlanta in September of 2020. They called her Cookie. She passed away 9//3/2022. She will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lee family of N. Myrtle Beach SC 10/25/20

Special Needs Heart Problems! Bones came in from the Daytona Beach Track Closing. He raced at the Waverider Kennel there. He raced 94 races there, and did race a couple at Orange Park early on too. He wasn't real good and only won a few at the lower levels of racing. He just turned 3 on Feb 1st and raced at 73lbs. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is B's Elite Wendy. Bones passed his initial cat test with some sniffing and then lost interest but was too interested in cats when meeting them later so at this point he probably would do better in a home with no cats. He is a friendly guy that has a wonderful personality. Bones seems smart and picks up things fast. When he came in he excitedly pulled on leash checking everything out. After just a little coaching he started walking nicely on leash. Although Bones was used to being around and handled by the 5 kids of his trainer at the track, he did not like the kids in his first home so is back looking for a home with no kids. When Bones arrived our vets noticed that he had a significant heart murmur, enlarged heart and an irregular heart beat. He has been seen by a specialist at Upstate Specialists and does have what looks like genetic heart problems that are likely to continue to get worse and shorten his life. It is amazing that he was able to race and that his heart held up to that strenuous activity. We are starting him on a medication that will slow his progression into Congestive Heart Failure. Once he gets into Congestive heart failure he will have 8 to 10 months. We do not know how long he will have with the medication. Bones is just the sweetest guy and loves adults. He is still goofy, playful and fun and everyone that has met him has fallen in love with him. Our vet suggested limiting playtime to 10 minutes and no lure chasing or really strenuous play. Bones is a special guy that deserves a very special home for whatever time he has left.  NOTE!  Because of his status as Special Needs, interested adopters do not have to be on the waiting list and his adoption fee is reduced to help his new family.

Bones lived nearly 2 more years with his heart problems. He crossed the bridge on August 9 2022. He was a wonderful guy and will be missed.

Bandit just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is part of the litter that came to us from the CTW Kennel Closing there. All his littermates share his first two names CTW Montana and they all were raised in Texas. Bandit is a 73lb, mostly white male with a fawn patch on the side of his neck and another small patch on his tail. He turned 3 on August 22nd. His sire is KC and All and his dam is CTW Make It Work. He raced 83 races and was racing at the top A level when the kennel closed so was a good racer. He is very outgoing and happy. He seemed to understand that the cat he met had claws and stayed away from it. He was interested in chasing when it ran away but as soon as it turned around he backed away and stayed away. So he may be trainable with a cat that would stand its ground with supervision. Bandit was fine with a small white dog he met. He can be vocal in his kennel so would not be a good choice for apartment living. Be sure to check out his other pictures to see lots of pictures of him as a young pup. Bandit was around the small kids that lived at the farm he was raised on so is used to them.

Bandit was adopted in 2017 and had a wonderful but short life with his family. He crossed the bridge due to heatstroke while at a boarding kennel in June of 2021. He was a once in a lifetime heart dog that will be missed.

He has learned how to play with toys and is doing great on his housetraining. JJ loves "helping" with the laundry although he is generally unfolding what was folded and carrying it around to decorate the bedroom with it. This is a fun guy!

Bella is a retiring brood mom that came in from Wheeling, West Virginia. She has 16 puppies in two litters that are racing now and probably has at least one younger litter still at the farm.

Not the larger ticking like we normally see just tiny black flecks. Very unusual and unique. She also has a very long nose with a long overbite which is very cute. Very cute girl!

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Bagwell Family of Greenville! Adopted 11/6/11

Kate is a beautiful, brindle female that raced at 63lbs. She was born June 26 2009 so is just 2 years old. Kate is a friendly happy girl. Kate has quickly settled into her foster home. She is a quick learner and is very eager to please. She has discovered toys and gathered up a huge pile in her bed and went from one squeeky to the next and back again - oh so much fun! She likes to gather up clothes and shoes and sleeps on them when her foster family is away. We think she feels comforted by their scent. She never damages anything when she does this. She has checked out the cat, the bird and the mixed breed small dog in her foster home and found them all interesting but not chase worthy. Kate seems to have a low prey drive and will be able to live with small critters with no problem. She will even let the cat steal her food. She is a precious little girl! Kate loves to hang out with the other 2 greys in her foster home and usually follows them around. Her foster family just loves this sweet girl and you will too.

Kate was adopted in 2011 by the Bagwell family. She had a long happy life and crossed the bridge on May 11th 2022 a month shy of her 13th birthday. 'She was the perfect girl'

Grenade is an extra large black male that raced at 91lbs. We also placed his littermate Gambino so were very excited to get him too. He came in from Derby Lane in Florida where he raced 93 races there. Grenade was a good racer and raced his last race on June 4th 2014. He finished the race but slowed some and came up lame afterward due to a minor hock sprain that healed completely.  Grenade was adopted by a family in August of 2014 that has had to return him to us due to financial issues. Grenade turned 8 on January 16th so qualifies for our senior adoption fee of $250. His sire is Tyrur Alex and his dam is Fire Storm Drive. Grenade passed his cat test and lived in a home with cats and small dogs so should be fine in a home with either. He is very friendly and loves everyone he meets. Grenade would be an excellent therapy dog or meet and greet dog since he loves kids and is very gentle and friendly with everyone he meets.

Grenade was adopted by the Bowden Family of Greenville SC in 2019 as senior. He had another great 3 years and passed away 5/9/22 due to complications of old age. A gentle giant that will be missed.

Oscar is a friendly, bouncy, red brindle guy that will celebrate his 4th birthday October 7th. His sire is KJ''s Yukon Gold and his Dam is Gilded Rose. He has 47 races to his credit and he raced at Bluffs Run, Sarasota and Sanford Orlando. He only won 2 races but placed in the money a lot. He raced at 73lbs. He is a sweet guy that passed his cat test and has been living in a home with them. At the track they said that he was Mr Personality following his trainers around and interacting with them a lot while they were doing chores. We have seen the same thing. He doesn't seem to meet a stranger and is very outgoing and friendly. He travelled well on the trip up from the track. He is a higher energy greyhound that loves to run laps every day so would do best in a home with a large yard to run in and maybe even another dog to play with. He probably wouldn't do well in an apartment without a place to run. Oscar has been living in an adoptive home for a year but they felt he would be happier in a home with a large yard, another dog or kids to play with. Because of his higher energy level he might be the perfect dog for someone that wanted a greyhound that could do agility or lure coursing. Oscar absolutely loves children and would be great in a home with older kids that he could play with. This boy is all about playing and having a good time.

Update on Oscar from his foster mom: Oscar is the happiest doggie ever. He will wake you in the morning by putting his nose in your face. If that doesn't work, he'll slip his nose under the covers. And if that doesn't work, he will softly bark you a good morning. He thinks eating is the most wonderful thing ever! He thinks walking is the most wonderful thing ever but isn't big on going jogging and will stop after less than a mile! He thinks sleeping is the most wonderful thing ever! But maybe the MOST wonderful thing ever is when you come home and he is so happy and waggy. Not terribly friendly to squirrels, but all other critters are friends. Totally house trained.

Oscar was adopted in Sept of 2014 by his foster family. He lived a long happy life and crossed the bridge May 16th of 2022 of complications due to old age. He will be missed.

Manning just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel. He didn't actually ever race there though. He raced 35 races at Southland in Arkansas and at Flagler, Naples Ft. Myers and Palm Beach tracks in Florida. He only ever was able to win one race so was retired young. He is a big, tall, guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is KL's Muriel. He won't turn 3 until November 20th. Manning is a friendly guy that is really sweet. He was quiet in his crate after just a couple of reminders the first day but once in awhile he does get excited and makes a little noise - mainly when guests come over and he is in his crate. He walks great on a loose leash. He is a higher prey drive guy that isn't going to be able to live with cats. He is OK with small dogs indoors but gets too excited about them outside when they run around so probably would do best in a home with medium sized dogs or larger. He is being fostered with an 15lb Italian Greyhound, to help him get used to being around small dogs and he is doing great with him now. Manning is doing great in his foster home and would be a very easy first or 4th greyhound. He seems to get along well with other dogs and seems pretty calm for his age. Manning is a gentle giant.

Manning was adopted by the Goodman Family in Sept of 2017. He crossed the bridge in 2022. He will be missed.

Kid just arrived from the CTW Kennel at the Wheeling WV track. That is a top tier track, so he was a very good racer to be competitive there. He is a very handsome white and black male with freckles in his white. He turned 4 on February 2nd. Kid is a midsize male racing at 75lbs and weighing in at 77lbs at our vet. His sire is DJays Octane and his dam is CTW Pole Dancer. Kid is a calm, friendly guy that is very good on leash. He crates well but has been known to sing a bit in his crate and has a very nice Roo Roo singing voice. He does correct easily and quiets right down and sleeps quietly through the night. He is completely vetted and ready to go home. Kid passed his small dog test and is being fostered with a small white Italian Greyhound. He was a little curious at first about the cat but never tried to chase it so we think he should be easily trainable with some supervision at first. He is used to being around kids at the farm he grew up on and they sent us a picture of him with one of the kids there. His owners told us Kid was a wild puppy and that his how he got his name. He became a calm, well behaved, adult after he matured like most greyhounds do. Kid travels well and just gets in and lays down on trips. 

kid was adopted 6/26/17 by the Jacobson Family and called Outlaw. He crossed the bridge 5 years later in June of 2022 due to bone cancer. He will be missed.

Jojo is a cute little girl that raced at just 55lbs. Her sire is Tony's Oracle. She was born on 10/1/09. She is mostly white with some black freckles in her fur and a couple of black patches over her ears and eyes. She is waggy and happy and her cute curly tail may end up being a blur in some of her photos. Jojo is a great girl that gets along well with people, other dogs and kids. She is young so is still pretty active and loves to play with other dogs. She passed her initial cat tests but has been interested in chasing some of the cats in her foster home so she would need to be tested with individual cats in whatever home she was going to. Cats with claws that are used to dogs and let the dog know who is boss, seem to be respected, but ones that run away and are afraid, are a little too fun to resist chasing.

Jojo was adopted by the Batson Family in 2012 and crossed the bridge 7/12/2022 ten years later. "She was a blessing to us and I think we were to her. She was a Proverbs 30 dog. "There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:....a greyhound."She was beautiful - all greyhounds are.  Being at home, I spent so many days of the last 10 years with her. She was fast and crazy smart, and we miss her terribly.

Ace is a greyhound racing star and had a long successful career of 216 races. He raced at Ebro, Sarasota, Mardi Gras, Flagler, Dubuque and just retired from Naples Ft Myers. Ace was consistently racing at the top A levels and competed in many Stakes races that are reserved for the fastest greyhounds at that track. He won some of those races too and was a 2015 Naples Floridian Finalist. He is coming in from Jimmy King at the Flagler track and we are thrilled to be able to meet and place a star like Ace. We wish he could sign autographs. His sire is the very famous Trent Lee and his dam is Kiowa WW Ring. Ace raced at 74lbs and turned 5 on February 21st. Ace has an awesome friendly personality. He is very calm and seems like he would be a very easy first greyhound. He was not interested in the cat at all so should be great living in a home with cats and small dogs. Very sweet guy! Update: Ace's foster family has decided to keep him!!

Ace was adopted in June of 2018 and called Ziggy by his family. He crossed the bridge due to a mystery illness that the vet was unable to diagnose in January of 2021.

Patches originally raced at Naples Ft Myers and Flagler tracks. She raced 103 races mainly at the lower levels of racing. She raced 22 times before she won her first maiden race and became an official racer. She did get up to the B level briefly. Patches has been retired and in a home since November of 2011. She was initially adopted through Greyhound Lifesavers and was returned to us to rehome. Her owner felt that she spent too much time alone due to her busy schedule. Patches just turned 10 on August 20th and really doesn't look her age. Just a gorgeous girl that doesn't have a lot of white on her face yet. Her sire is Oneco Spirit and her dam is Hammer This. Patches passed her cat and small dog tests and loves children. She is quiet in her crate and well behaved, she does whine when she needs to go out though. Her favorite place to be is the bed closest to a person. She is used to being on a couch or human bed and will get up on either.  She is a very sweet girl that was just a bit overwhelmed when she first arrived. Because she is an older gal she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee. 

Patches was adopted as a senior in 2018. Her family called her Jasmine. She lived a long life with her family and crossed the bridge in March of 2021 at 12.5 years old.

Mark came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 197 races and also raced at Melbourne, Dubuque, Bluffs Run and Mardi Gras. He was a good racer that raced at the top A level and his last race was an A level race that he placed 3rd in. He had a minor muscle injury in that last race on June 8th. Mark has healed up from that and is fine now and runs and plays normally. Since he was already 5 years old they decided to go ahead and retire him. He turned 5 on August 13th so he had a very long racing career. Mark's sire is B's Royal Tim and his dam is WW Star Isabel. Mark is a very confident, happy-go-lucky guy. He is very loving and follows his foster mom around the house wanting to be close to her. He only had one accident in his foster home on the Christmas tree which was an honest mistake. Mark is very smart and learns fast. He figured out how to open a door and a gate. Mark is silly and playful and loves playing with toys. When Mark first arrived his coat was a little rough as you can see in some of his early photos, but he has a shiny black coat now and is a very handsome boy. He is a mid sized male racing at 72lbs. Mark was pretty excitable when he first saw small furry things but calmed down after some exposure at the vet's office. He has been good with some small dogs he met since he has been in foster care too. Mark can be a little bossy with other males so we think he would do best in a home with female dogs or he would also be fine as an only dog. Mark was very vocal when he first arrived but has quieted down nicely and likes his kennel now and is very quiet. This is a sweet, loving, fun guy that has a lot of personality. Mark has done very well with the visiting grandchildren in his foster home and seems to especially love kids. He is going to make a fun addition for some lucky family.

Mark was adopted 1/31/16. He crossed the bridge in his sleep from apparent heart failure May 10th 2021 at the age of 10. He is missed.

Cherry is a sweet, outgoing girl with the cutest tiny, pointy ears. When she gets excited they pop straight up and make her look a little like a doberman. Most of the time they are folded and flopped forward on her face though. Really cute and they give her such character. She will be easy to spot in a crowd of greyhounds because of her cute unusual ears. Cherry was a pretty good racer that has 150 races to her credit. She just retired from Sanford Orlando Track but spent most of her career racing at Palm Beach. Her sire is Maryville Rumble and her dam is Jawa Pattie. Cherry will celebrate her 4th birthday on March 7th. She passed her cat test with no real interest so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. In her photo she looks a little sad but we had just woken her up from a nap. This is not a sad girl - just the opposite.

Cherry was adopted March 3 of 2013. Her family renamed her Tansy. She crossed the bridge June 28th of 2021. She will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Erskine Family of Simpsonville SC 7/5/15

Gale came to us from the Birmingham Race Track. He is a beautiful black male that was shy and overwhelmed when he first arrived but warmed up to be friendly and sweet with his foster family. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Lady Jeannine. Gale raced 79 races mostly at Birmingham but also briefly at Naples-Ft Myers in Florida. He only won 3 races in his career, but he did place some. He last raced October 1st and was at the track adoption kennel waiting for a group or adopter to take him for months before we got him. He was just a shy, black boy that got overlooked. He just turned 3 on March 1st and raced at 73lbs so is a mid-sized guy. Gale enjoys going for rides and gets in a vehicle and lays down for the trip, but is timid in new places and meeting new people so probably would do better with a family that didn't do a lot of traveling with their dogs. He is a very low key, calm guy that is more of a homebody since he is shy. He does cautiously go up to new people if given a little time to warm up. Gale has been fostered with us for some time now so should be an easy addition that is already home-acclimated. Gale was too interested in chasing kitties to be able to live with them. Although he initially tested fine with small dogs and does fine with them most of the time he needs a home without small dogs. Gale does OK in a home with just one or two other large dogs but too many dogs and activity makes him nervous. What he wants most is a family that will let him hang out with them at night. He loves to sleep in the room with his humans. Gale is a timid guy that wants a home that is quiet and low key like he is. He has a lot of love to give to his new family.

Gale was adopted 7/5/15 and was called Ares by his family. He crossed the bridge 9/7/21 after struggling to get up, falling and and refusing food. He was very loved and had a fantastic life.

Icon is a gentle 86 lb giant that just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. He never actually raced there but was just sent to their adoption kennel to place with one of the adoption groups they work with. Icon was one of the best racers, getting up to the very top AA level, at the best track in the country- Southland in Arkansas. He also raced at another top track, Wheeling in WV, then Mardi Gras, Dubuque and finally Sarasota. He raced 153 races. Icon broke his leg on January 6th of 2018. He was casted for 6 weeks and put into a soft splint for 2 after that at the track. His splint was removed by the time he got to us and we sent him to Pro Greyhound for rehab. He is finished with that now and has been released for adoption. He will still need a month or two more of reduced activity where he takes it easy on the leg. He shouldn't run around and play with other dogs yet outside for awhile to be sure the leg is very strong. Icon is huge. He raced at a very tall 86lbs. His back comes up to our hip, probably around 31 or 32 inches at the shoulder. Icon has a gorgeous shiny black coat. He is friendly and happy. Icon travels really well and is silent in his crate so may be a good choice to live in an apartment or townhouse. He loves to put his head in your lap for petting and seems pretty calm indoors. Icon can be playful, silly and bouncy outside. Because of his old injury  Icon may not enjoy long hikes. He loves to go for shorter walks though and can easily support his weight and uses his leg. He is a great guy and his foster home just loves his personality. He is a really good guy that seems to want to please and just wants love. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no desire to chase either. He seems to like other dogs and gets along extremely well with the large pack of dogs that his foster home has. He is just a friendly easy going guy that loves everyone he meets. Icon's sire is the very famous DJays Octane and his dam is Silver Idol. He just turned 5 on April 1st.

Icon was called Senna by his adoptive family. He was the politest, gentlest, sweetest cuddle bug and was a once in a lifetime dog. He crossed the bridge due to Osteosarcoma at just 8.5 years old September 15th of 2021.

Magic is a sweet, friendly boy that just retired from the Orlando Race Track. He has 49 races listed and raced at 78lbs so is a bigger guy. His sire is Freak Show and his Dam is Malwa Passion. We just adopted one of his sisters from the same mom but out of a later litter - Canadian Passion. Magic's birthday is June 3rd. He is a calm, well behaved guy. When we spent time with him at the track he was very quiet in his crate and was careful not to mess up his crate. He did what he was told when it was time to go outside to potty and didn't have accidents in the kennel. He is mostly white with just a few red spots and the sweetest, most gentle eyes. He didn't pay any attention to the cats and small dogs at the vets office so seems like he will be fine to live with either. He has been living with a small furry white dog in his foster home and did well with him. Magic travels well and did great on the long trip up from Florida. He had a minor injury to his shoulder that caused him to retire but that is totally healed now. Magic has been a great foster and did great at his first meet and greet calmly soaking up all the attention that people gave him. He was good with kids and adults and didn't seem nervous. He was great on the shiny floors at PetSmart too. With his calm sweet nature he seems like he would be a really easy first greyhound. He is quiet in his crate so we think he would do well in an apartment or townhouse.

Magic was adopted 3/28/13 and was called Moose by his family. He had a long happy life and was just shy of his 13th birthday when he crossed the bridge in March of 2022. It was a Freak N Awesome journey!

Twista just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at the Palm Beach race track. His owner Mike Hattery, is a friend of some of our members, and reached out to us and asked us to place him when he retired. Mike has pictures of Twista growing up and will be glad to pass them on to his new owner and would love to get updates.  Twista was a kennel favorite, just one of those dogs whose personality stands out in a crowd. Very happy and social. His trainer says he loves to play and is very smart. He wishes he had a kennel full of dogs just like Twista. He says whoever gets him is going to get a great dog. Twista was a good racer getting up to A level and even competing in a Stakes race. He did well in the longer 660 yard races but also raced in the 550 and won. His sire is Hi Noon Renegade and his dam is SL Wolfgang. We placed his littermate NPZ ImperialLady as well. Twista passed his small dog test easily and seems to like kids. 

Twista was adopted in April of 2019. He was called Wicked by his family. He developed cancer and in spite of chemo and all the best treatments he only survived a short time. He passed away in April of 2022.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Howell Family of Greenville SC March of 2022

Special Senior! Greta initially came in from an Oklahoma farm where she had been since she has retired from racing. She raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers and Flagler Race Tracks. She did get up to the top A level so was good. She race 121 races and retired in September of 2013, and went back to the farm to be a mom. She never ended up actually having pups though and was sent to us in January of 2016 to be a pet. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is PR's Maddy Rae. Greta is a tiny girl that raced at just 54lbs. She will celebrate her 12th birthday on November 16th so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Greta was adopted by one of our volunteers after her arrival back in January of 2016. Unfortunately they have been forced to give up their beloved dogs. Her owners are experiencing severe health issues that keep them from being able to care for pets anymore. Greta is a real lover that seeks out attention and follows her family around when she is not dozing on a dog bed. She loves the kids she has met. She is very friendly and happy. Greta came into her home like she had always been there. She was a little interested in cats at first but became very good with cats and chose to avoid them. She was too interested in small dogs that were bouncing or running around, so her initial foster home thought she would do better in a home without small dogs but she has been around small dogs successfully over the years since. Greta is gentle, loving and loves to snuggle. She has no trouble with stairs and easily navigates all types of flooring. She crates well and loves to go for rides in the car.

Greta was adopted by the Howell Family in Greenville SC in 2022 as an older 12 year old girl. Shortly after she was adopted she got sick, quit eating and crossed the bridge shortly after. She had only been in her new home a very short time.

Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ramsey Family in Savannah 1/17/2012

Strider is a beautiful black, shiny boy that raced at 71lbs. He is very young and just celebrated his 2nd birthday Dec 10th. Strider is a bit shy at first and would try to hide his head under someone's arm when he was nervous. He started following his foster family everywhere after only a couple of days and just melts for a tummy scratch. Strider is very sensitive to correction, just a stern word and he stops doing what he is doing. He is home acclimated and well behaved so rarely does anything wrong though. Strider potties well on leash so doesn't require a home with a fenced yard if his family is willing to leash walk him. He is good on leash and can do steps very well. He plays nicely with other dogs large and small, and is fine with cats. Strider even lived with birds so should be find with just about any small critters. He is a very loving, devoted boy once he warms up, although he is initially a little shy about approaching strangers. He prefers women over men, but will warm up to men too with a little time. Strider has shown some separation anxiety when left totally alone, so would do best in a home with at least one other dog for company. Since he sometimes cries when left alone in his crate, he would not be a good dog for apartment or townhome living. Strider is a great guy with a lot of love to give. He is young, so is a playful, fun guy.

Strider was adopted January 17th of 2012 and was called Grendel. He had a long happy life and always greeted his dad at the door. Grendel crossed the bridge in early 2022 at the age of 12 suddenly of unknown causes. He will be missed by his family.

Adoption Status: Congrats to the McMullen Family of Old Fort, NC 6/2/13

Echo came from a Sanford Orlando kennel closing. She also raced at Bluffs Run in Iowa and at Derby Lane and Orange Park in Florida. She has 49 races to her credit. She turned 3 on March 28th and she raced at 62lbs. Her sire is DK's Prime Time and her dam is Money Go Get Her. Echo is very good with cats and small dogs and didn't pay attention or get excited about seeing either. The cat hissed at her and she kept her distance as if she was already familiar with cats and their claws. So far Echo seems like she is a very sweet friendly girl that is calm but has a silly playful side too. She is very good on leash and never pulls. She likes everyone but seems like she is particularily fond of men. Echo did a cute little bounce and spin when meeting her foster mom's husband for the first time. Echo does go potty on leash and is quiet in her crate so should be OK in an apartment or in a home without a fenced yard. Echo is a sweet, well behaved girl that should make an easy first or 3rd greyhound. She has hardly used the crate in her foster home and is very well behaved even when left out with no supervision.

Echo was adopted by the McMillen Family in 2013 when she was 3 years old. They called her Ethyl. She lived passed away in 2020 at the age of 10 from kidney failure and will be missed.

She retired in October of 2014 and went back to the farm to become a mom. We aren't sure if she ever had any puppies because so far none have been registered to race. Pups have to be registered before racing and usually are registered by the time they are a year and a half old. Cool has been on the farm for nearly 4 years and turned 8 on March 24th. She is looking for a couch of her own now and seems like she may have found one at her foster family's home. Cool is a happy, silly girl with a lot of personality. She is very outgoing and friendly and doesn't seem to be scared of much except for shiny floors. Cool raced at 64lbs. Her sire is USS Raceway and her dam is Myokie Flame. Cool passed her cat and small dog tests and is being fostered with both. More as we get to know her. 

Cool was adopted by the Thompson Family in 2018. They called her Beatrice. In January of 2022 she suffered paralysis and quit eating. She was nearly 12 years old. She will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
Clarke (Simpsonville)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Siman, 8.19.10

Chato came to us in December of 2009 from the Gulf Greyhound Track where she raced just 14 races. She won 3 of those and came in 2nd or 3rd in a lot of others. Before her career really got going, she stumbled and fell and broke her leg. She was retired, although the break didn't appear to be a very bad one. Our vets say the break is healing really well and Chato should be fine to run around and play after it completely heals. She will be in a splint until it heals and then will require some more time of limited activity to regain strength in her leg before being allowed to run again. Her trainer describes her as a tiny, bubbly girl that follows her around trying to get her attention. She is a tiny 53lb white and black girl with two big black spots on her back that resemble angel wings and some smaller black freckles (ticking). She did great at her first dog event and would go up calmly to people and lean against them to be petted. Chato seems to like to travel and will hop up on the seat and lay down for the ride. She has done great with the very small dogs and cats in her foster home so should be fine living with either. Chato is a half sister to Lily and CurlyQ, two of the girls we placed at about the same time. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Sunsands Lilgirl. Her DOB is 7/22/07.

Update: Hi! my name's Chato. My hobbies include loving on you, leash walks, and snuggling. Ok ok, I love eating too! What i'm looking for in a family is someone to love me back, help me stretch my legs a lil, and keep my food bowl full. I'm a very good girl, i just want to make you happy. I don't mind having brothers and sisters, but i'm ok with being an only child too. If littler dogs growl at me or snap I just walk away. I am such a good girl. I learned to go potty on a leash really good, and i can even walk on slick floors like hardwood and tile with my splint.I could live in an apartment or without a fenced yard since I am so good on leash and quiet. My leg is healing up so well that you can barely tell where I broke it now. I can hardly wait until I can run around and play again. I am a pretty low energy girl, so don't require much exercise. I would be perfect for a low energy owner that likes to just go for short walks.

Chato was adopted in August of 2010 by the Siman Family. She had a long life with them and crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 14.5 in January 2022. They are never with us long enough though. She will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted Richardson Family of Myrtle Beach 12/28/11

Starburst is a tall beautiful, dark red, male that raced at a thin 66lbs. He actually a pretty tall guy for his weight. His birthday is July 10, 2009. He is friendly and sweet and loves people. The vet that treated him said that he was one of the most tolerant and sweetest dogs she had met. When they put him up on the table to re do some staples, instead of struggling, he just laid there and wagged his tail, happy to be getting attention. He didn't want to get up when they were done, because he was enjoying the attention so much, in spite of getting stapled. Starburst passed his cat and small dog tests and is living in a foster home with a small dog, so should do fine in an adoptive home with either. Starburst crates quietly and potties well on leash, so may be a good choice for townhouse or apartment living. He pulls on leash and we are working on that. This is a super sweet, loving guy that wants to please. He gets along well with the dogs in his foster home. If the play gets rough he walks away and chooses not to get involved. Such a sweet, sweet personality. We think he would do really well with kids because of his sweet nature, willingness to please and choosing to walk away instead of defending himself. He was a big star at meet and greets. He feels it is his job to personally greet every person he sees. No one is going to get by without a kiss, a snuggle or a lean. He is almost like a cat rubbing on people.

Star was adopted by the Richardson Family of Myrtle Beach in December of 2011 when he was two and a half years old. He lived with them for another 6 years and passed away in 2019 at the age of 10.

Emmy is a world traveler. She was born in Ireland and was imported to race in Florida. She raced 14 races at Derby Lane and Tampa in 2005, but didn't manage to win one of those races. Because of her bloodlines, Emmy went back to the farm to be a mom after her short race career. She had a litter of 6 pups in 2006, but none of them were good racers either. None were able to even graduate from race training to the race track. So Emmy was retired from mom duties in mid 2009, when she was 6 years old. Her sire is Spiral Nikita and her dam is Centenarys Devil. DOB 7/20/03. Emmy is a gorgeous shiny black female with a personality that shines like the brightest star. She is settling in with us & is an ideal foster - playful, friendly, affectionate & there is a little goofball hiding in there as well. Emmy did not pass her cat test so needs a home with no kitties. 

Emmy was adopted in August of 2009 by the Richardson family of Myrtle Beach. She was a wonderful pet and very loved. Unfortunately she was only with her new family for a year, before she passed away in 2010.
