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 raced in Florida at just 66lbs so he is a smaller male. He was a pretty successful racer that raced until nearly his 4th birthday, which was on October 7th. Potzy is very cute, mostly white with a few brindle patches and some freckles in his white fur. 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.

Potzy was adopted by the Kerr family 5/27/12 he lived until 2019 when he passed away at the age of 12. He will be missed.

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.

Girlfriend was adopted by her foster family and renamed Mazy. She lived a happy life with them until she passed away 1/1/19

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 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.

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.

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.

Lashes just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She never raced due to a muscle injury as a puppy and has just been living on the farm up until now. The injury is long healed and she can run and play without any problem. She just wouldn't be fast enough to race with an old injury although she doesn't seem to limp and looks like she runs pretty fast. Lashes is a mostly white female with brindle spots. She was never given a registered racing name. We called her Lashes because she has a tiny spot of fur that grows out her lower lash line that looks like she is wearing a false eyelash. The vet clipped the hair off when she was under for her spay and it may need to be trimmed every so often as it grows out. The rest of her litter were registered and are now racing. They all have the prefix SJ's. Her sire is Starz Jenko and her dam is Go Home. Lashes was born on July 26th of 2017 so she just turned 2. She is an outgoing girl that loves everyone she meets. She is just a little overwhelmed so far with everything new but even while having her first bath, she snuggled and kissed her foster mom. This is a really sweet girl that showed no interest in the small white dog she met other than a casual sniff and even let him eat her food. Lashes was good with the cats she met too and seemed to be like the small children she met.

It is all she has ever known, so she has adapted and runs and plays normally. She is a very happy, outgoing pup that has quite the personality according to her owner. She is only 11 weeks old so is small right now, about the size of a large cat,  but will be nearly adult sized in 6 months. Raising a greyhound pup is nothing like adopting a retired adult racer. They are hyper and can be very destructive. Imagine having a large breed puppy that can run 40 mph and needs to run and play most of the day. If their energy isn't drained in appropriate ways they will get into trouble. A large fenced yard is required for puppy adoptions. We recommend doggy daycare unless you have other dogs that will run and play with the puppy. Running and play is important to develop the strong bones and muscles they need to prevent injuries. Crating is important for potty training and when they aren't supervised to keep the puppy and your house safe. More as we get to know her.

This is a rare greyhound puppy born 1/28/19! She is a white female with red spots that had a muscle injury to a leg as a puppy that they thought might slow her down so decided not to race her. It is long healed and she gets around fine and plays and runs normally. We aren't even sure where the old injury was. She just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. Since she hasn't been named yet, her adoptive owner will get to do that, we have been calling her Puppy Girl. She is around 6 months old so is still very small for a greyhound at 40lbs. She will get taller and should put on some more muscle and weight as she gets closer to a year old.  Greyhound puppies aren't anything like the calm adult retired racers we are used to. Puppies are very playful and hyper and need a LOT of exercise or will become destructive and naughty. Nearly all puppies chew and dig and a large clumsy puppy that can run 40 mph isn't an easy puppy to raise for most people. A large, safe, fenced yard is required for greyhound puppy adoptions. Use of a crate will be necessary for potty training and to keep the puppy and your house safe when you aren't home or can't watch it. Unless you have other playful dogs to entertain the puppy, we recommend puppy daycare at least a couple of days a week to drain energy and for socialization with other dogs. This is especially true for people that work and have to leave the puppy home all day. Puppy Girl is very outgoing and happy. She will try to crawl in your lap and gives everyone kisses. A very sweet social girl.  She has a lot to learn and is picking up on things quickly. She had to learn like how to wear a collar and walk on leash and that trips outside are to potty and not just play and how to be quiet and well behaved in a kennel. She already wants to keep her kennel clean and will cry when she needs to go. She passed her cat test. She was excited to see the cat but was only play bowing and trying to get the cat to play with her. She was also good with the small dog she met and tried to get him to play with her. She tries to get every dog or human she meets to play with her. At this age she just wants to run and play. She loves kids too.

Rory raced 61 races at the Mobile AL track before retiring in May of 2014. He only won 5 of those races and competed at the lower racing levels mostly placing. He turned 8 on March 6th and raced at 73lbs. His sire is Kiowa Power Pak and his dam is CTW Diamond Diva. We don't know much about Rory since we didn't place him initially, but it looks like he was adopted by his family sometime in 2014. They adopted a female greyhound, they called Rumor, from us in 2017 to keep him company. Rumor and Rory are very bonded and are available for adoption together. They were very loved and are only available for adoption because their owner passed away in a tragic tubing accident. Rory is very sweet and friendly. He can be a little anxious about some things though and has some prescribed medication from the vet that helps him with that. We were told that he didn't crate or ride well in cars, but he did really well on the short trip to the vet in a crate, so he may have gotten better about that. Rory is a very sweet guy that seems very calm and lower energy like you would expect from an older gentleman. He did not pass his cat test so needs a home without kitties. Rory is a very cute guy with a light tan/fawn coat and ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. He is a very well behaved guy. His former owner used to work at a doggy daycare so both dogs are very used to being around other dogs. Rory and Rumor are staying together in foster care until they are adopted.

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.

Sean just retired from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is one of the Road To A Racer Alliance dogs that some of our members have been following closely. Sean liked racing but ran straight to the outside edge of the track and wouldn't run on the inside where most dogs run. He was a bit reckless and it was feared he would bump into another dog or injure himself trying to get to the edge of the track where he liked to run. So he had a very short career of only 23 races. He only won two of those. Sean came in toward the back of the pack most of the time, due to his choice to run farther around the edge of the circle. Sean is a stunning, tall black male that raced at 77lbs. He is getting ready to celebrate his 2nd birthday on August 8th. His sire is Lenson Sanchez, an Irish Sire. His dam is B My Merlot. We placed some of her other pups B Vinny Vino, B My Brandy and B Dom Perignon. We met Sean as a young guy and have followed his career so have lots of pictures of him racing and in his racing kennel. He is a happy, friendly, goofy guy that seems like he is pretty energetic and fun. Sean passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest. He obviously has been around cats because he sniffed the cat when his back was turned but as soon as the cat started to turn around Sean backed away and turned his head to avoid a pop on the nose. He wouldn't turn to look at the cat again. Sean really liked the kids in his first foster home and was fine with the small dog he met too.

Miles just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track Kennel. He also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida. Miles has been promised to our group since he was a puppy. He was named for one of our volunteer's dogs that passed away. We first met Miles at around 8 months old at his farm in Texas and have followed him growing up through training and his career of 81 races. We have photos of him along the way and he even has his own Facebook page for his followers so he is pretty special. Miles will turn 4 on December 10th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Flirtatious. Miles is a smaller guy that raced at just 68lbs and is a stocky muscular guy, so is pretty short for that weight. He wasn't a great racer, mainly winning at the lower levels and only briefly getting up into the top A level one time. He was retired because he broke his outside back toe in his last race. Our vet amputated that toe and unless you count the toes you won't even notice one is missing. Miles definitely doesn't notice and has felt better since the problem toe came off. He is healed up and ready to go home now. Miles is a very outgoing guy that loves everyone he meets, kids and adults alike. He bounces happily to see you when you get home, but calms down nicely. He will stand next to you for petting for nearly as long as you will pet him. Although he is mostly quiet in his crate and crates really well, he sometimes makes some noise when he can see or hear people outside and wants to go see them. He potties nicely on walks and walks nicely on leash so wouldn't require a fenced yard. He gets along great with other dogs large and small and was living with an Italian Greyhound in his foster home and is exceptionally tolerant of the little guy. He is being fostered now with cats and is doing great with them too. Miles is a very sweet boy that loves people and is going to make a very loving pet. He is shiny and gorgeous.

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.

Templeton is from a litter that was all named for Charlotte's Web characters. Templeton was the very intelligent rat in the story. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until September 28th. His sire is Seldom Told and his dam is B My Erica. We met this litter of puppies a year ago, when they were small, on a trip to the Bolton Farm in Florida. Templeton never had an official race because he was just was not fast enough. He was pulled out of the one race he was supposed to race at the last minute. Several pictures of him and his litter as puppies is up at the Sanford Orlando Race Track, on the rail though. We have a photo of it in his pictures. We do have a few pictures of the litter from our trip to his farm last year. He was an excellent traveler on the trip back from Florida. Templeton seems pretty calm and quiet for such a young guy. He is a mid sized guy at 73lbs. Fearless and confident, he strolled right across the shiny hardwood floors without any trouble and the vacuum didn't phase him either. Templeton settled into his crate nicely and was quiet there too. He chatters his teeth when excited - some greyhounds do this and we think it is really cute. Templeton is a happy boy that comes running to see you with his tail wagging. Very sweet guy!

His sire is the famous Defrim Bale and his dam is Kiowa Jill Vik. Fly only raced 12 races and didn't place in one of them. He started out his career at the Lester Raines Kennel at Palm Beach before being moved to Sanford Orlando. He is being fostered with small dogs and is great with them. He also passed his cat test pretty easily. He excitedly sniffed the cat then walked away. That is pretty much his response to anything new, get excited, sniff then check out the next thing. Fly also has liked all the kids he has met, very much. He is so big and goofy that he might accidentally knock down toddlers that weren't steady on their feet though just because he is so happy to see them. He was pretty loud in his kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment living. Fly went right up steps the first time he tried them. He is very sweet and social and has the most beautiful shiny black coat! Fly is an fun, happy, goofy guy. He stood up looking out the windows and panting most of the trip up from Florida. He panted a lot and seemed very excited about everything new in his foster home too, at first. He seems more excitable and curious about everything new, than scared, because he doesn't have his tail tucked. He needs a little work on leash because he pulls, but he does calm down pretty fast. This is a super sweet guy that loves people and will be a lot of fun for a family that wants a dog that will enjoy doing things with them.

Cluster just arrived from the adoption kennel at the Jacksonville Race Course. She raced in the Lester Raines Kennel but retired in October of 2018. She was placed locally and was with her adopter in Jacksonville for about 4 months before being returned to the track adoption kennel. We just picked her up on a group track trip and brought her into a foster home, so she didn't have to stay in the kennel. Cluster is a gorgeous, shiny, black female with a small white blaze on her nose, white chest and white socks. Her sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is Kelsos Jenna. We placed her littermate Kelsos Rudy last November and a dog that has the same mom Kelsos BlueSmoke too. Cluster is a confident, happy girl. She can be a bit bossy at first so may need to be in a home with a male dog that doesn't mind having a bossy girlfriend (most don't) or a more submissive female. Cluster lived as an only dog with her previous family but she seems to be more comfortable with other dogs around and is doing great in her foster home with several other dogs. Cluster is VERY outgoing with people and doesn't seem to be stressed by the move from Florida into a foster home. She prances into a new home with her head and tail high and wagging. She goes straight up to everyone she meets happily for affection and usually tries to put her paws up on your chest to give hugs. We are discouraging the hugs, since she is a big dog, even though it is pretty sweet and cute. Her previous owner said she had growled a few times when being handled by strangers, but the original adoption kennel never saw any growls directed at humans and we haven't either. We weren't able to get much info on context of when the growls occurred from her, but in our experience, it usually happens when a dog is laying down or sleeping. She loved the kids she was introduced to, but because of the reported growls, we think a home without small kids would be best for her. She has been fine with the small dogs she has met but still needs testing with cats. This girl is personality plus and so stunning! If you want a happy fun girl that is full of personality, Cluster could be the one.

She is a very calm girl that passed her cat test easily with no interest in them. She was also fine with the small dog she met. She is quiet in her kennel and pretty good on leash too. She liked the kids she met. She is just a little overwhelmed by everything new but doesn't really seem to be shy and will go up to people for attention. Rag Doll had to have 11 teeth taken out at the vet so will need to have good dental care and maintenance to save the rest of her teeth. She is able to eat just fine with the her remaining teeth. More as we get to know her.

Ng, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Aycock Family of Summerville SC 7/14/19

T Man just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Track in Florida. He is a very young guy that never had an official race. T Man was retired due to being very shy. He would run away from people trying to catch him at the end of races. He is a very shy boy and the move to the track, from the farm ,was just too much for him. T Man is very nervous around people he doesn't know but is warming up to his foster mom. He won't even turn 2 until November 4th, so is still a pup. His sire is Touch Tackle and his dam is DK's Tanstafel.  T Man is a genetically shy dog that isn't going to become a social butterfly after a few days or weeks, it is just his personality. His family will need to be understanding and committed to working with him long term until he gets comfortable with them. It may take weeks, months or even a year. He may never be comfortable enough to want to go places outside his home and his family needs to be OK with him just the way he is and not expect him to change much. T Man is similar to a human with an anxiety disorder.  He is timid and shy in social settings and he is very uncomfortable outside of his familiar surroundings. This is inherited shyness and not from anything anyone did to him. He is being fostered with cats and is also fine with other dogs large and small. He is a little shy with other dogs too at first and doesn't interact much. He has been very tolerant of dogs taking toys and bothering him though. He has warmed up to his foster housemates and is starting to play with them.  Since T Man never raced we don't have a racing weight for him. His foster mom leashed walked him to potty inside her fenced yard until he got comfortable enough to let her catch him. He is off leash now and comes running back into the house. After a little over a week he has started approaching his foster mom for affection and is OK with her walking toward him as long as she moves slowly. He is more skittish when visitors come over. Because he is so timid he is likely to be scared of the fast movements and loud noises that children and their toys and friends make. We would prefer to put him into a quiet home with older calm kids or no kids.

Louise came in from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced her entire career of 107 races at that track. Louise raced at 66lbs and is a pretty red girl. She just turned 4 on May 18th. Her sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and her dam is Flying Loki. Louise is very outgoing and waggy. She loves everyone she meets- adults, kids and other dogs. We noticed that she seems to like to snuggle up with other dogs and people and doesn't seem to be bothered by being bumped or stepped over by other dogs. She was interested in the cat on first meeting, but after a slap from the cat did not want to go back to see it again. We think she may be trainable with cats, especially with a cat that would stand its ground. Louise has been very vocal so wouldn't be a good choice for apartment or townhome living. She is was initially fostered with several young kids and seemed to really like them. She is a very happy, friendly girl with a lot of personality. Louise was in an adoptive home for over a month, but their male greyhound never seemed to like having another dog in the house and seemed withdrawn and depressed. So they are honoring his wishes to be an only dog and Louise is looking for another home. Her family reports that it isn't anything Louise has done, she is a really sweet girl that is very friendly and loving. She tries to interact with their male greyhound and is very good with him but he just isn't interested.

Toppy just came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced 149 races there and was a fantastic racer, racing at the top A level nearly his entire career. At one point he won 6 A level races in a row. He raced his entire career at that track. We placed his sister Atascocita Prema so are happy to be getting him now too. Toppy turned 4 on February 13th and he raced at 71lbs. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Atascocita Golda. Toppy has very cute stand up ears. He passed his cat test and is being fostered so would be a great choice for a home with cats. Toppy is a very friendly, happy, guy that just loves people. He goes up to everyone he meets, adults and children. He is curious about everything and seems to not be phased much by anything new. He seems like a pretty confident guy. Toppy isn't a fan of his crate and can be pretty vocal about it, so may not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. He is smart and it only took one day to house train him. Even though Toppy is 4, he still likes to taste things, so supervision will be necessary until he learns what is OK to chew on and what is not. He has not tried to get up on the furniture yet and prefers to lay on a dog bed. He gets along well with other dogs but does grumble some if they try to share a dog bed with him. Toppy is a very sweet boy that gives kisses and loves to be near people more than anything else. He is very goofy and fun. Even though he hasn't growled at humans over his bed and actually loves small kids, we would rather err on the side of caution and place him in a home with older kids that could understand that some dogs don't care for being bothered when sleeping or laying down.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Murphy family of Anderson, SC 6.9.19

Jade came to us in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She had a very long career of 172 races. She started out at Dubuque and then was moved to Southland in Arkansas. From there she went to Melbourne Fl to race. That was the track that she finally started doing well at, and she got up to the top A level there. When that track closed, she went to Sarasota then back to Dubuque and on to Mardi Gras.Then she went back to Dubuque before going back to Florida to Naples Ft Myers and finally Sanford Orlando. So it is pretty safe to say that Jade is very used to traveling. Some tracks are more competitive than others, so dogs frequently move around to lower level or higher levels tracks depending on their racing skill. Even though she got up to A level, and had a very long career, Jade mostly placed and didn't win as much as some. She raced at 64lbs and has a cute light fawn coat with black brindle stripes that we don't see that often. She will turn 5 on December 8th. Her sire is PG Tiger and her dam is Flying Kresley. She was interested in the cat at first, but after sniffing she seemed to lose interest pretty fast, so we thought she was very trainable. As the cat test finished up she saw another cat that bolted past her and she got overly excited about the cats again so she needs further testing. Jade came in specifically for a family that wanted her so they are working with her with their cats to see if she can get used to seeing them move around her. She was a kennel favorite with the daughter of her trainer at one kennel and they would love to keep up with her in retirement. She is a very sweet girl that is very outgoing and curious. She wags and leans in to snuggle with people. She likes other dogs and seems to get along great with everyone. She did OK with the small dog she met, after she sniffed it and figured out what it was. She seemed to like the small kids she met too.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Fulton family of Greendale, IN

Mogul is a red female that just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is young and won't turn two until July 31st. Mogul was not fast enough to race but she definitely has the drive to race and chase, so we know she gave it her best shot. She really wanted to get to the cat and chase it during her cat test. The cat slapping her had no effect on her whatsoever, so she definitely can not live with kitties. With her high prey drive we figured she would not be good with small dogs either, but she showed no interest in chasing the Italian Greyhound she met. She seems like she will be fine with some small dogs with an introduction so she knows what they are. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is KB's Brite Lite. Mogul is an adorable red girl with a dark curly tail that almost hangs in corkscrew at times and curls up over her back sometimes too. She has the cutest floppy ears. Mogul has a great personality and is very waggy and very happy and loves people. Mogul can be loud in her kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. She was pretty excitable around the small kids she met and wanted to get their toys and blankets, so we think she would do best in a home without small kids. Although she is very young and has a high prey drive, she does seem to calm down nicely. Her foster home, describes Mogul as "personality plus". Even though she is quite friendly she does have a very submissive side and will come up to you with her body and head low and tail wagging. She seems to be the same with other dogs and isn't pushy with anyone. Care should be taken with introductions to dogs that are fuzzy because she tends to mistake anything fuzzy for a lure. Even our laundry. She loves toys but gets overly excited about them and tends to take them apart. This is a cute girl that is young and is still learning what everything is.

Updated description for this gorgeous girl!  It's time for Lucky to find her forever home.  She's full of energy and is a real love to everyone who meets her.  The problem toe was amputated (see below) so she's "gimpy" no more!  That surgery has healed just fine, letting her run and play like it never happened.  Whoever meets this happy little girly is going to fall madly in love!   Original description:   Gimpy just arrived with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Mator from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. Gimpy never actually had an official race at the track due to an old injury to her right front foot. It looks like she may have been stepped on by another dog or maybe she kicked something while running and damaged several toes. One toe had been partially amputated by a vet at some point, but because she was a pup, the bone continued to grow and was causing some pain. Our vet amputated more of the worst toe on June 13th and she is healed up and ready to go home now. She does still hold up the foot when standing and limps some and is likely to always do that. It really doesn't slow her down. She loves to run and play and doesn't worry too much about her foot. She loves going for walks and gets so excited to see the leash. Gimpy's sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. Gimpy is a tiny girl who weighed just 56lbs at the vet. She is young and turned 2 on April 4th. Gimpy passed her cat and small dog tests at the track. She was fostered with a cat in her first foster home and did fine with it. She doesn't seem to be stressed by much and was roaching (Sleeping on her back with her feet in the air which is the sign of a relaxed happy greyhound). Gimpy is doing great on hardwood floors. Although Gimpy absolutely loves kids, she gets excited and jumps sometimes, so might accidentally knock over a toddler. We think she would do fine in a home with slightly older kids. She is friendly and goes right up to everyone for attention and seems like she is going to be a very loving pet and companion.

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.

Sweet Girl just arrived from a Florida farm. She never made it to the race track and flunked out of training because she would play with the other dogs instead of chasing the lure. That is called interfering and dogs that do that aren't allowed to race. Sweet girl is a very young girl that won't turn 2 until August 26th. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is KB's Go Mama. She is pretty tall for a girl and weighs about 65lbs. Sweet Girl is friendly and loving with people and kids she has met. She has been just a little overwhelmed with all the new sights and sounds in her retired life though and can be a bit jumpy. Sweet girl walks well on leash and travels very well. She kennels well too and sleeps through the night quietly. Her foster mom has reported that she is not good with other dogs when being fed and she guards her food. She hasn't shown any food aggression with people at all, but we would rather place her in a home without small kids, that would be carrying food and dropping food, just be extra cautious. So far sweet girl has only really gone after another female dog that got too close to her food and left a male alone that was even closer. She may need to be placed as an only dog unless her family was very diligent about feeding and giving treats separately. Sweet girl is the cutest thing and passed her cat test easily without any interest.

Ellie just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track. She arrived with her sister TMC's Mistimagic. Ellie never raced and flunked out of the training phase at the race track. She just didn't show much promise as a racer so was retired young. Ellie won't even turn 2 until October 31st. She is a small girl around 60lbs. She is the more outgoing of the two girls and doesn't seem to be phased by all the new things in her retired life. She is calm for one so young, but does get excited sometimes and bounces. She jumped up on people when she first arrived, but after the initial excitement wore off she stopped. She was very calm in her foster home and exceptionally quiet in her crate. Ellie just lays down and goes to sleep in her kennel, so she may be perfect for apartment or townhouse living. She pulls just a little on leash because she is curious about everything, but is already getting better with just a little coaching. Ellie seems like a smart, friendly girl that is going to be very social and fun. She passed her cat and small dog tests easily and was more interested in checking out the room and getting attention from all the new people. Ellie liked the small kids she met too. She seems to enjoy traveling and just lays down for the ride.  Her sire is Time Flies and her dam is TMC's Mcjosalyn. Ellie was vetted in Clinton SC and is ready to go home.

Misti just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track. She arrived with her sister TMC's CandyKrush. Both are very young girls that flunked out of training at the track. Just not that interested in racing or not quite fast enough to be competitive. Misti won't even turn 2 until October 31st. Misti is a friendly girl but was a little overwhelmed when she first arrived. She seemed just a little nervous with everything new not so much with people. She goes up to people and gives kisses. Misti was well behaved in her kennel. She didn't have any accidents in the house and was doing great on her potty training in her foster home. She seems very calm and well behaved for a girl that is still almost a puppy. She was curious about the small dog and cat on first meeting but just sniffed. The cat did have to slap her a few times because she kept sniffing. She did great in a foster home with cats and around a small dog in another home. She was very good with the other dogs in her foster home too and gives new dogs kisses that she meets. She seemed to like the small kids she met too. Misti likes to travel and just gets in and lays down. She is also very good on leash. Her sire is TIme Flies and her dam is TMC's Mcjoslyn. Misti was vetted in Clinton SC and is ready to go home.

August is a beautiful red girl that just arrived from Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She also raced at Dubuque and Mardi Gras race tracks. She retired after racing 69 times because she had a sore shoulder. August got bumped in a race back in November and hurt her shoulder. Her trainer took her out of racing for several months, waited for her shoulder to heal, and got her back into racing condition. He tried racing her again in March and she actually won a race and placed a couple of times and stayed racing until May. Her shoulder was a little sore after races though, so the decision was made to retired her. August is not limping now and doesn't seem to be bothered by her shoulder. Our vet looked at it and thinks she will be fine as a pet, but shouldn't do agility or coursing or other performance dog events. Our vet said she may have a little arthritis in her shoulder as she ages. There is a slight chance she could need surgery, in the future, if she re-injures her shoulder and makes it worse. August's litter was given racing names of large stores. She got Costco and yes there is a Sam's, Best Buy, K Mart and Target too. August just turned 3 on May 20th. Her sire is the famous BD's Grayson and her dam is Flying Kinney. August passed her cat and small dog tests without any interest in either. She also liked the kids she met. August is a very friendly girl that doesn't seem to meet a stranger. She likes other dogs and people she meets and seems like a happy waggy girl. She travels well and jumps right up into an SUV or backseat on command and settles right down for the trip. August was vetted in Clinton SC and is ready to go home.

Vinny just arrived from the Bolton Racing Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. We placed his littermates B Dom Perignon and B My Brandy already. Some of our volunteers co-own his sister B My Sherry who is still racing. Vinny raced 45 races and also raced at Naples Ft Myers in Florida. He had a great start in racing winning his first 4 races and going straight up to the top A level. Vinny mainly competed at the top A and B levels. In early September he got bumped by another dog during a race and hurt his hip. They took him out of racing to heal up for over 2 months. He started racing again in November and won his first race at the top A level, so seemed to be completely healed up. He got bumped again in another race and slowed down just a bit and started dropping levels. His trainer found that he had a little soreness in his hip right after races, so they decided to retire him. He is not limping now and his hip should not bother him as a pet. Since Vinny retired due to soreness he should stay retired and not do lure coursing or agility. He is fine to run and play normally and shouldn't have any trouble as a pet. Vinny turned 3 on May 18th. His sire is Golden Squire and his dam is B My Merlot. He passed his cat and small dog tests very easily without any interest in either. He just stepped over the small dog as if he wasn't even there. Vinny was vetted in Columbia and his foster mom decided to keep him.

Llewellyn, Simpsonville SC
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.

Sherwin just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park. He only had 3 schooling races and finished toward the back of the pack in the first two and pulled up and nearly stopped in the last one. His last race was in January so he may have been rehabbing from an injury in that last race, since he was at the track so long before they made the decision to retire him. Sherwin raced at 75lbs and is young - he won't turn 2 until June 20th. His sire is P's Gibbs and his dam is Zero. He seemed a little timid and overwhelmed when he first arrived but warmed up right away in foster care. After just a day or two he has become a friendly guy that loves attention. He is great with the other greyhounds, male and female in his foster home. He also passed his cat and small dog tests easily. Sherwin can be a little loud in his kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment living. He loves to lay on doggy beds and is slowly learning the wood floors and stairs at his foster home. He has done great with his potty training and hasn't had one accident in the house and seems to have good house manners already.

She is a bouncy, sweet, people-oriented girl that passed her cat and small dog tests easily. She was much more interested in interacting with the people than seeing the cats or small dog.

Coyote just arrived from Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park. He raced most of his 65 races at Wheeling in WV though. He was a good racer getting up to B level at one of the best tracks. He raced his last race on Feb 1st of 2019 and came in last place. Looks like he may have had an injury that was rehabbed in hopes he could return to racing due to the amount of time he was kept at the track after his last race before they made the decision to retire him. After most minor injuries and even some more serious ones are healed, the dogs are often able to return to racing. Sometimes they just aren't fast enough after they heal up to continue racing or the old injury continues to bother them a little and they are retired. Coyote is turning 4 on May 15th. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Ucme Chickaboom. He raced at 73lbs. Coyote is a very outgoing, happy boy. During his cat and small dog tests he was very curious and did a lot of sniffing. After a swat from the cat he lost all interest though.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McDaniel family of Hendersonville, NC on 5.19.19

MIXED BREED Dutch came to us from a NC shelter that thought he might be a greyhound mix. He had been found as a stray. We do have some information on him because he was microchipped. The name Dutch was listed on his microchip and it told us that he is 5 years old. Unfortunately his original owner was not able to be contacted with the info given. The original shepherd rescue group that placed him in Texas was found and contacted. They gave permission to rehome him here because of the distance. His microchip says that he is 5 years old. Dutch looks like a Dutch shepherd mix and may possibly be mixed with greyhound. Greyhound mixes are very rare here, but more common in Texas where he came from. He mostly has the Dutch Shepherd build and color but has greyhound looking ears. Dutch went through extensive temperament testing at the shelter. He passed everything with flying colors. He was fine with small dogs, cats and even kittens. He was OK with handling and gives kisses. He is friendly, but doesn't come across as really needy. He will explore by himself and then will come up and put his head on you for love. He is perfectly happy on a dog bed and doesn't seem to be a marker and hasn't had an accident inside. He had already been neutered by the previous rescue group that placed him in Texas. He eats very well and didn't seem too stressed by being in a shelter situation. Dutch has a big booming bark and will get excited when you first come home and will bark, so probably would not do well as an apartment dog. He was whiny at first as he was getting settled in his foster home. He seems to get along well with any dog he meets and gives them kisses too. Dutch should be fine as an only dog though. He travels very well and potties really well on leash. It only takes him about 30 seconds to take care of all his business on leash but if he has a yard to explore he loves to spend time outside sniffing around. He is a big brindle guy with a huge head, neck, and chest and smaller back end. He has huge feet, a round more barrel shaped body than a greyhound but does have pretty long legs and cute greyhound ears. He has more of a stiff coat than the typical greyhound. His weight was listed as 74lbs. Dutch seems like he has had a lot of training in the past. He does sit and down on command and will give his paw when asked. He works well for food and toys. He seems like he is very smart and figures things out quickly. He has definitely been a house dog because he knows what dog and human beds are and seems to have good housetraining and house manners already. He has no problem with slick floors or stairs. Dutch seems to like kids when he meets them but gets pretty excited to see them so may be a little much for small children. Dutch is strong and does pull on leash. If you remind him to heel he will come back and walk by your side so he has been trained to heel. He just needs reminders because he loves to sniff around on walks.

He took a tumble in his last race back in September of 2018 and never returned to racing after that. Freeze is a pretty calm mellow guy. He's settled in with no housebreaking accidents or counter surfing, and crates quietly as long as he has another dog with him.  When totally alone he does show some distress, so will do better in a home with at least one other dog for company.  Freeze does love to run around outside but only does a few laps in the yard. He passed his small dogs test easily and seemed to like the kids he was introduced to. He has not been cat tested yet. His sire is KC and All and his dam is DK's Leapinlizzy. He will turn 3 on June 20th. Freeze raced at 71lbs.

His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Easi Narcissa. He will turn 3 on October 16th.  Castiel needs a home with no cats or small dogs because he tends to want to chase anything that is small and furry. He is a happy, friendly guy that is very waggy. He wagged so hard at the vet's office that he injured his tail banging it into everything and had to have it wrapped up.

Her left side almost has no brindling except a little on her shoulder. Sweet, calmer girl who roached within minutes of being placed into a kennel. Raced at 60 lbs. Will be 2 years old next month. Very little interest in either the little dog or the cat so should be fine to live with either. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is U Too Serena. We placed her littermate Qest Imprint already and also placed a half brother by the same mom named Karl Malden. Both are great pets. Suzie only raced 10 races and didn't win any of those. She placed in most of her races though. She started playing with the other racers so was disqualified. Playing on the track is not allowed. Because she had a very short career, she is young and won't turn 2 until June 14th.

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.

Timmons was good racing 94 races and getting up to A level. He even placed in 4 Stakes Races, getting a 2nd, two 3rds and a 4th. Timmons raced at 73lbs and his sire is Dox Out Of Peace and his dam is Boc's Sluicey. He is a very good boy and as you would expect travels well and takes everything in stride. He picks up quickly on things and seems very bright. He figured out how to take his muzzle off with no problem. He crates quietly and has done great with potty training. He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home and was also fine with the small dog he met. He still needs cat testing but he has seen a few cats outside and hadn't gotten excited about them so we think he is likely to pass his cat test. Timmon's foster mom says he is one of the easiest fosters she has had. He is good on leash and corrects easily. He is a pretty calm guy that will turn 4 on June 27th.

Adoption Status: In Process to the Williams family of Candler, NC 9.16.19

Edge just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race track. He only had 3 schooling races and finished toward the back of the pack in all of them. He was more interested in playing with the other dogs than chasing a lure. He even raced one of his schooling races with blinkers on in hopes it would encourage him to focus on the lure instead of playing with the other dogs. Playing with the other racers is not allowed during races and is the quickest way to be retired.  So Edge won't turn 2 until June 6th and is already retired and looking for a home. He is a silly guy that loves to run and play but he calms down nicely and sleeps in his crate and is very quiet in the crate even when completely alone. So he may do fine as an apartment dog or an only dog. He has done fine with the small dog in his foster home but does want to play with him. He would need rules and supervision with very small dogs just because of the size difference. Edge passed his cat test at the vet's without much interest. When he got into a foster home with kitties he got more interested in them moving around him so we decided that he would do better in a home without cats. He really liked the small kids he met and was fostered with a small child. Edge raced at 69lbs so is a smaller guy. His sire is Dox Out Of Peace and his dam is Superior Carly. Edge is a very good boy that responds really well to correction. He is calm for such a young dog but does have some energy because he is so young. He will run around the yard a few times and settle right down though. He is curious about everything. He has done very well on his potty training.   Updated Description!  Edge, now known as Bowie, is once again available for adoption.  His family loves him very much, but they have recently brought home an adorable newborn!  His behavior has since changed significantly demonstrating that he's just not going to be safe with the infant in the home.  This is unusable in greyhounds, but in his case they have tried very hard to turn the situation around.  We agree with their decision completely and will move Edge into foster placement as soon as we find a good location.  He is a great dog and this is the one and only reason they are returning him to us.  To reflect this, we have changed the status above to reflect "older children only" so that interested adopters will see this explanation.

Elrod, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Mrowca family of Biltmore Lake, NC 4/15/19

Jingles is a tall boy that raced at 71lbs. He turned 3 years old on January 7th. He only raced 10 races total and didn't win one of them. He raced 5 races at Derby lane in January of 2018 then was taken out of racing for a year. He raced another 5 races in January of 2019 and still didn't race well so was retired. His owners say that Jingles is an exceptionally fast greyhound that would win all the time at the training track, but then would not put his heart into the race once he got to the track. That is why they gave him a year to grow up and mature hoping that he would do better with time. Jingles is a confident, friendly, happy guy that passed his cat and small dog tests. He should be fine to live with either and is being fostered in a home with cats and small dogs. His foster mom says that he is curious about the cats and wants to play when they do but corrects well and should be fine with some supervision at first. Jingles is so comfortable in new situations that he laid down and did the famous greyhound roach, on his back with 4 feet in the air, within a few minutes of arrival. He is quiet in his kennel so may be OK to live in a townhouse or apartment. Jingles sire is the famous Bella Infrared and his dam is Blazin Booty. Because of his speed, he may be a good choice for someone that wanted to do amateur sports with greyhounds. He has had no injuries. They called him a morning glory because he did best in morning schooling races.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Flanders/Griffin Family 7.23.11

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.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson (Greenville, SC)
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.

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.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Hayes family of Greenville SC, 3.31.19

Fired Up arrived with two other puppies Paradise and Paragraph but isn't from the same litter. He is a shiny black boy that is slightly older than the other puppies being born on on September 18th. His sire is Flying Fired Up and his dam is Fiesta Pauline. He is a wild, friendly puppy that is around 50lbs and will get up into the 70s most likely in the next couple of months. His owner decided not to race the pups probably due to racing being ended in Florida and most of the race tracks in the country shutting down. Greyhound puppies are very expensive to raise and train for the race track when it is unlikely they will have tracks to race at when they are old enough to race. Fired Up has had none of the training the retired racers get and has just been on a farm running and playing with this littermates so far. He has not been collar or leash trained yet. He has had no potty training or manners training and has never been in a house before. He was at the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel for a few weeks so has had a little bit of crate training there. Greyhound puppies need large fence yards with plenty of room to run. Fired Up will need a home with dog training experience and puppy experience that is willing to work with him to teach him all the things he needs to know to be a good pet. Because he is a big, excitable, wild puppy, he needs a home with older kids or no kids. He is just too wild and rough to live with toddlers that he could knock down. Greyhound puppies are wild and hyper like any other puppy but are bigger than most and can run at nearly 45mph so can be much more destructive than most puppies. They are nothing like the calm, well behaved, adult couch potatoes we typically get when we get retired racers. More as we get to know him. Fired Up is a happy, friendly guy. He is picking up on collar and leash training very fast. He still resists going in his crate but crates pretty well once he is in there. He does like to bark and is pretty vocal. He will happily bark to get your attention when playing and will bark in his crate if not corrected. He corrects very easily. He is learning not to jump on people and seems to be a fast learner. He is very sweet and will just stand next to you for love for a long time. He seems pretty calm for a greyhound puppy. He still loves to play and run though and needs a lot of exercise. He is doing good with the 15lb Italian greyhound in his foster home that lets him know that he doesn't want to play with him. Fired up does play pretty rough, so would have to have a lot of supervision and rules about playing gently with small dogs if he goes to a home with small dogs just because of his size and activity level.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Phillips Family of Knoxville TN, 3.31.19

Paragraph is a black male greyhound puppy that is only 5 months old. He was born on October 1st. He came in with his sister Yolo Paradise. His sire is Fiesta Paraguas and his dam is Bella Fuitzy. His owner just decided not to race some of the puppies in his litter and put them in pet homes instead. Probably as a result of Florida voting to stop racing as of the beginning of 2021- right when these pups would be going to the track to race. Greyhound puppies are expensive to raise properly and with over half the tracks in the country in Florida closing there will be a shortage of tracks for these pups to race at by the time they are old enough. Paragraph is a friendly, hyper puppy that is going to be a handful. He has not been leash or collar trained, has no house training or manners training at all yet but we are working on that. He was raised on a farm and has never been in a house or had the track training that the typical retired racers have. He has been living at the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel for a couple of weeks so has had some crate training there. Paragraph is wild, hyper and playful like any other puppy, but he weighs around 50lbs and will be around 70lbs in a few months. Greyhound puppies are not the calm couch potatoes like the adults we are used to. Puppies need to run and play most of the day and need a lot of training, socialization and work on manners. They need plenty of room to run in a large fenced yard. Paragraph will need a home that has dog and puppy experience. Because of his size and rough play we would prefer to place him in a home with older children or no children. He would accidentally knock down a toddler in his excitement even though he wouldn't hurt a child on purpose. Paragraph is a very sensitive guy that gets overwhelmed and scared easily. After a week he still isn't liking wearing a collar and still shies away from hands that reach for his collar. He still freezes on leash and doesn't want to walk. He seems like new things bother him and that it takes him a long time to process change. He is a very sweet boy that wants petting and love but is a bit on the timid side at the same time. He will still come up to new people and jump on them and act crazy when the other puppies do, but is a bit more timid by himself.

Wheel House just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced 62 races there. She seemed to do best at the longer distance races and won a few of those but mainly placed. She is a littermate to Nothing But Dust that we also placed. Her sire is Golden Squire and her dam is Ready Set Gone. Wheel House is a tiny female that raced at just 60lbs and will turn 3 on May 9th. She passed her cat test easily and is being fostered with cats so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She is very sweet, friendly and pretty laid back. Her foster home just loves her and says she is a great girl that gets along great with their dogs. Wheel House has been determined to have Greyhound Bleeding Disorder after tests ruled out diseases such as Von Wildenbrands.  Future owners should be cautious about surgery or bleeding emergencies and should always have Amicar on hand.   Wheel House likes the comfort of her crate and sleeps quietly there all night, so may be a good choice for apartment living. She also potties nicely on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard as long as her family was willing to leash walk her to potty. She is such a cute tiny girl that can be just a little overwhelmed at first by new things.

Latasha just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a sweet girl with a lot of personality that one of our volunteers fell in love with on a visit to the track. She was waiting on Latash to retire but when that finally happened we found out that Latasha is way too focused on cats to be able to live in their home with kitties. So Latasha is available for adoption. She raced 120 races and did get up to A level for awhile. Her racing weight was 62lbs. A lot of her most recent races were the shorter sprint races. Latasha turned 4 on October 4th. Her sire is the famous DJ's Octane and her dam is BI's Sugar Momma. Latasha loves toys and carries them around and places them on her dog bed along with a few items of clothing she found. She is a collector but doesn't seem to be destructive. She just likes to sleep with her toys and stuff. She is very sweet and loving and has a wonderful personality that drew us to her out of a kennel full of other dogs. She does need a home without kitties. More as we get to know her.

He was racing well and had just gotten up to A level when he injured himself and pulled up back on June 25th of 2018. He was rested and didn't return to racing until December 21st. Since then, he always finished toward the back of the pack, so he was retired permanently. Virg is an active guy that is very outgoing. He gets so excited that he jumps on people so we are working on that. He passed his cat and small dog tests with a lot of curious sniffing. He backed off and acted like his feelings were hurt when the cat slapped him. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is Erika Of Ruckus. More as we get to know him.

Talkin is a handsome black male that raced at 71lbs. He is very young and won't turn 2 until April 9th. He only raced 11 races at Orange Park in Florida. He did win two of those races early on, but finished his last race so far back that he wasn't even in the picture. Talkin is a sensitive guy that is a bit timid and seemed stressed by everything new in his life when he arrived. He is going to need some time to get comfortable in a new home. Talkin passed his cat and small dog tests easily with little interest in either so should be fine to live in a home with cats or small dogs. Talkin was adopted and in his first home for only a week before being returned to us. He was stressed there as an only dog and wasn't comfortable being alone for the first time in his life. He may need a home with other dogs and will definitely need more than a week in a home to get comfortable. Talkin's sire is My Bro Fabio and his dam is Superior Kotton. More as we get to know this sweet shy boy.

Talley just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She raced 76 races at Wheeling Downs, Southland and Derby Lane. She did get up to A level briefly at Derby Lane and Wheeling so was pretty good. She retired from racing in December of 2016 and was sent back to the farm to be a mom. She had her first litter of 3 pups August of 2017 and they have just started their racing careers. Those are the only puppies registered but she has at least one other litter that was just weaned and maybe another one that hasn't been registered yet. Talley is a sweet girl that raced at 67lbs. She just turned 6 on March 14th. Her sire is Tyrur Alex and her dam is PTL Scarlet. Talley passed her cat test with just a little initial curiosity. She seemed fine with the small dog she met too. She crates very well and is quiet in her kennel. She travels well and just got in our van and laid down and went to sleep. She is really sweet and seemed to like the small kids she met.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Oglsby family of Augusta, GA, 4/6/19

Blink just came in from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel. She raced there and also at Southland, Sanford Orlando and Orange Park. Although she raced 110 races she wasn't very good and raced mainly at the lower levels of racing and placed rather than winning most of the time. She was moved around to the different tracks in hopes of finding somewhere she would be competitive. She raced at 64lbs and turned 4 on December 11th. Blink did not pass her cat test so needs a home with no kitties. She does have a higher prey drive and wanted to chase a very tiny dog that only weighed 4lbs too. She was fine with a white Italian greyhound that was 15lbs though and a pug that was over 20lbs so should be fine with medium sized dogs or larger. She is outgoing and happy. Seems to be very sweet. She liked the small kids she met. She travels very well and crates nicely. At some point in her life, Blink had to have a front toe taken off so she is missing one. It doesn't seem to bother her and she was able to race without it.

Adoption Status: On Vet Hold for broken leg, Adopted by the Phillips family of Seneca, SC 4/12/19

Casey just came in from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel. He actually raced in Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando though. He got up to A level so was good. Casey broke his hock in his 26th race on December 28th. He was sent to the Birmingham Track Adoption Group because of their rehab program for retired Greyhounds. His leg was splinted by the vet there. It did not heal properly and he was still barely using it when we got him. We had him rechecked by a specialist. Casey had to have the leg rebroken and plated in a surgical procedure on April 9th. The surgery was a success and the specialist thinks it will heal up and be usable again. Casey got picked on by other males at the track so will need a home with either no other males or another submissive male that won't pick on him. He is missing a chunk of one of his ears from one of the times someone picked on him. Casey is just a little timid and unsure in new situations. He is friendly and waggy with people though. Casey is bouncy and seems to be pretty energetic, but that could be because he has been on crate rest since the end of December and hasn't been allowed to play or run around at all. Casey just turned 2 on January 23rd so is still very young. His sire is the famous DJ's Octane and his dam is PJ Stay Back Kat. Casey did not pass his cat test at the track and was way too interested in kitties to live with them. He has been fine with a 15lb white Italian greyhound in his foster home so should be OK with small dogs. He crates well and keeps his crate clean. He does pull on leash curious to see everything. He travels well. His foster home says he loves her 12 year old daughter and seems to really like kids. Update one of our vets decided to adopt Casey and he will complete his rehab with her.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Phillips Family of Knoxville TN, 3.31.19

Paradise is a greyhound puppy that was sent to the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel with her brother. We are pretty sure that she and her brother were retired due to the vote in Florida to end racing. They don't appear to have anything wrong with them that would prevent them from being racers when they grow up. Paradise is a beautiful tiny black female that still has a lot of growing to do. Probably about half the size she will eventually be. She is VERY outgoing and sweet. Very excitable and VERY active. We have her listed as no small dogs or small children because she immediately jumps on them and tries to get them to play. She isn't aggressive at all, just too playful and wild. She knocked the toddlers she met down and scratched them. She did the same with the small dog she met. She is not like the calm, adult greyhounds we are used to. Puppies are very sweet but very wild and hyper like any other puppy and quickly get to full sized. Imagine a 60lb puppy that can run 45mph and likes to run and play most of the day. Greyhound puppies aren't for everyone. They need training, socialization and lots of daily exercise every day to drain their energy and teach them good manners. Paradise had not worn a collar or a leash until we got her so still has a lot to learn. She is very smart and is already learning to fetch a ball and is starting to walk better on leash instead of laying down and refusing to move like she did at first. She will need a dog experienced home that has training experience because a 5 month old dog that has never been in a home before and has no manners at all is challenging. She has been crate trained and is very good in her crate. She travels well in her crate as well. Puppies require a large fenced yard to play in. Paradise loves to chase balls and loves chasing toys.

Dan is a gentle giant giant racing at 82lbs. He is very tall and narrow and his back is nearly hip high. He raced at Flagler, Naples Ft Myers, Sarasota, Ebro and Southland. He was good, winning at A level at Sarasota and Ebro. After Dan retired he was sent to the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Group to be sent out to one of the adoption groups they deliver dogs to and we got him from there. Dan just turned 3 on January 16th. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Flying Devlin. He is a sweet outgoing guy that just wants to be close to you. Dan will lean against you for greyhound hugs. He didn't seem to be stressed by traveling but likes to stand up and see where he was going. He seems like he has an easy going personality and isn't stressed by much. He was fine with the white 15lb Italian greyhound he was introduced to and a black fuzzy dog so should be fine to live with them. He has the softest fuzzy coat and is very furry for a greyhound. He is doing great on his potty training and seems to be a big teddy bear of a boy. Dan was adopted and in a home for about a month. Initially he was fine with the 3.5 year old child in the home, but gradually he started to get annoyed with him and didn't like him stepping over him and moving around him when he was laying down. So even though he really likes kids, in smaller doses, we think he would prefer to live in a home that doesn't have small kids.

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 Lohoefer family of Myrtle Beach 6/23/19

Doc came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in February. He only has one race listed and he finished last. He wasn't much better in his previous schooling races. His trainers say that he would be a good candidate for dog sports because he is injury free and just not quite fast enough for the professional track. He is very young and just turned 2 on May 27th. His sire is the famous Cayman Went and his dam is D's Overthemoon. Doc is a big brindle guy that raced at 80lbs. Doc was a little overwhelmed and nervous when he first arrived, but warmed up in his foster home and quickly became a happy, goofy guy. When he first came in, he would shy away if you reached for him, but would come right up if another greyhound was getting petted. He needed a little work on leash because he tried to backup or bolt if something surprised him. Doc is very quiet in his crate and is being fostered in a townhouse, so should be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Doc was adopted March 1st and was renamed Tigger. He is being returned to us because he growled at a child that was leaning on him and petting him, to comfort him, after he had already had a stressful day that included an upset tummy from being fed too much and a bath. A growl is the only way a dog has to say he doesn't like something and actually shows that the dog would rather warn than actually bite. Doc has always been a sweet guy that likes people and even kids, but will need to be placed in a home where everyone understands the old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie". Many dogs don't like to have someone lean on them or pet them when they are laying down resting, even when awake.

She seems like she is a happy bouncy girl that is going to be a lot of fun. She passed her cat test without any interest and was fine with the small dog she met too. She wasn't sure what to make of the toddlers she met but wasn't shying away from them and was fine with them petting her. More as we get to know her.

Liv just arrived with her brother Surprise. She raced at the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She only had 5 races and finished toward the back of the pack in all of them so was retired very young. She won't turn 2 until July 14th. Liv is a timid little girl that is pretty shy at first. Her trainers said that once she gets more comfortable she really wants to come up to you and interact but just can't seem to get the courage up sometimes. She will gradually warm up to her family but will just need some time. She is a small dark brindle girl that raced at 60lbs. Her sire is Pat C Sabbath and her dam is Livin Ona Prayer. Liv traveled well. She was not interested in the cats she met at all and is being fostered with cats. She wasn't sure of what to make of the toddlers she met and mostly just froze and turned her head away. Since she is shy she may do better in a quiet home with older kids. Young, loud, fast moving kids may be too much for her. More as we get to know her.

He only raced 4 races and finished all of those at the back of the pack. He was retired young after coming up with a slightly sore shoulder after his 4th race. Surprise traveled well and seems pretty calm so far for a young guy. He sniffed the cats he met curiously but never tried to harm them, so even though he is curious we think he is very trainable. He is being fostered with a kitty so he will get used to being around them. He was very good with the small dog he was introduced to and is being fostered with a pug. His sire is Pat C Sabbath and his dam is Livin Ona Prayer. Surprise potties nicely on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. He just whined a little the first night and then was quiet so may be a good choice for apartment living. He does fine on wood and shiny floors.

He may need a fenced yard since he didn't seem interested in taking care of his business while on leash. Rainman loves kids and is being fostered with kids. He also did fine with the small dogs he met. He was pretty interested in the cats he met though so needs a home with no kitties. He is a very good boy that is very sweet and doing really well in foster care. He probably is not a going to be a good choice for apartment living because he has been a little loud sometimes in his kennel.

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 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 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.

Duke was a fantastic racer that ran and won at the top A level. He competed in quite a few Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Nisei. Duke turned 3 on June 22nd. He raced at 72lbs. He is a friendly guy that doesn't seem to be stressed out by much. He is very curious about things and needs a little work on leash because he wants to go check out everything new. He passed his first cat test with only a little initial interest in sniffing the cat. After a slap from the cat he didn't want to get near it again and quickly decided to check out everything else in the room. He was placed briefly in a home with cats but he had a completely different reaction to those cats and wanted to chase them so although he seems OK with some cats he meets he probably should go to a home without kitties. He did well with the small dog he met so should be OK in a home with small dogs. He really liked the toddlers he met as well. He seemed to travel well and walked right across shiny wood floors with no problem. He is a beautiful, unusual, black brindle - mostly black with a little golden/orange striping.

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!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ahl Family 4/13/19

Army is a very tall guy that came in from the Lester Raines Kennel at Orange Park. We were very excited to get him because we just placed his mom Lee Lonnie! He raced all of his 34 races at Orange Park in FL. He mainly raced at the lower levels but did get as high as B level briefly. His racing weight is listed as 79 but he is very tall and lanky for that weight and is one of the taller guys we have seen. He turned 3 on September 24th. He doesn't have very many races for his age and it looks like he took several breaks from racing: One after his first race October 7th of 2017 until mid December and another from May 5th to June 3rd of 2018. Then from June 7th to December 9th 2018. So it looks like he had some kind of reoccurring injury. Looking at all the bumps and falls he had, it looks like he was very clumsy due to his size. He did heal up completely and went back to racing in December, but was slow, so was retired after 4 races. Army's sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Lee Lonnie. Army is a sweet, friendly guy that travels well and seems to kennel pretty well. He has made just a little noise occasionally in his kennel, but slept through the first night without making a peep. He liked the small kids he met and seemed to do well with the small dog he met too. He was interested in the cats at first and did a lot of sniffing, but lost interest on his own without even getting a slap from the cat. We only listed him as trainable because there was some initial interest in the cat. Army was fostered with cats and did very well with them. He jumps in and out of a SUV fine. He doesn't like to potty on leash so probably will need a fenced yard. He has decent leash manners and doesn't pull but does go from side to side to check things out. His foster home describes him as a lovable dofus. Army can be dramatic like so many greyhounds. He will give the greyhound scream of death sometimes if he doesn't like something, like having his nails done. He just needs someone that doesn't buy into his drama. He is tall enough that his back touches the top of the 48 inch long crate so he needs an extra tall 48" long crate or a 54" long dane sized crate. Army was in a home for a couple of months but he didn't do well there as an only dog. They called him Harvey. He is a sensitive guy that picks up on his owner's anxiety so needs a happy confident owner so he can be the confident happy guy he normally is.

Thinkin just arrived from the farm she was raised on in Florida. She raced her entire career of 124 races at Orange Park in Florida. She was pretty good getting up to A level. She was retired from racing in May of 2017 and went back to the farm to become a mom. She was bred once but missed. After the vote to end racing in Florida she was not re-bred, so never got to have any pups. Now she is officially retired from mom duties too. Thinkin's sire is the famous Fuzzys Cannon and her dam is CTW Anti Gravity. Thinkin is a very friendly, happy girl. She was very high energy when young but has calmed down some now that she is over 5 years old. She is still pretty active for a 5 year old greyhound. She rides well, crates well and is good on leash. She seemed to like the toddlers she met and was very gentle when greeting them. She was also fine with the small dog she was around. Thinkin was curious about the cat and followed it around and sniffed and sniffed it, but never tried to hurt it. The cat finally slapped Thinkin for sniffing too much and she wouldn't get near the cat again. Although overly curious at first, she should be very trainable with a confident cat. She is being fostered with cats and is doing very well with them. Thinkin is a very nice, outgoing  girl that is going to be a great pet.

Foolish Pleasure was named for a great race horse. He wasn't as famous as the horse, but he was pretty good, racing most of his career of 100 races at the top A level and competing in a couple of Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. His last race at the Palm Beach Race track was back in August and he won it. Since he stopped racing even though he was winning, that is usually a sign that there was a minor injury. It looks like they hoped he would return to racing after a few months off, but that didn't happen, so he was eventually retired and sent to the Birmingham Alabama Race Track adoption program to be transported to adoption groups. He seems fine now. Foolish Pleasure raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on April 25th. His sire is NMS Sweet Thing and his dam is from Australia, Manyara Bale*. Foolish Pleasure passed his cat test without any interest. He also was very good with the small dog he met. He seems like a calm sensitive guy. A little overwhelmed by all the changes. He is sweet and walks up to people for attention when out of his kennel or on leash. He backs up nervously if you reach for him when he is in his kennel. He didn't shy away from the small kids he met when on leash. He is just a little timid at first and seems like he will warm up fast. More as we get to know him.

He seems like he has a lot of personality and is going to be a fun guy. Toby has been very quiet in his kennel so far, so may be a good choice for apartment living.

LeLonnie is a sweet brood mom that had at least one litter of puppies after she retired from racing. She was a good racer starting out her career at Palm Beach, then moving on to Orange Park. She went to Wheeling in WV from there to race. She retired after 166 races in March of 2015 and went back to the farm to be a mom. She had a litter of 5 in September of 2015 that is racing now, but no other litters have been registered yet. There are likely to be others that are too young to register though. Lelonnie is a very friendly sweet girl that gets along very well with other dogs. She loves adults and children. She raced at 64lbs and turned 8 on May 2nd. Her sire is Lonesome Cry and her dam is Breezing Easy. Lelonnie did not pass her cat test but she seemed fine with a small white dog she met. LeLonnie's foster mom says she is settling in exceptionally well to home life. She is laid back and very easy so would be a great first or 4th greyhound. Exciting news! We are working on getting one of her sons that just retired from racing!! Because she is a senior Lelonnie qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Raines Family of Lexington SC 1/5/19

Cooper is a 5 year old guy that raced at Daytona Beach, Sarasota, Flagler and Dubuque. He wasn't very fast so was moved from track to track in hopes of finding one that he could be competitive at. He raced 87 races at the lowest levels and ended his career at Daytona Beach in January of 2017. Cooper was initially placed through another adoption group that was in the process of shutting down. He was returned to that group by his first adopter after being in a home for about a year in January of 2018. Then he was in foster care for nearly another year. The group reached out to us to place him, since they had shut down. Cooper is a large 79lbs brindle greyhound. He is pretty energetic for a 5 year old and loves to go for walks and jogs. His foster mom was taking him on 3 mile walks every day with her. He does have a pretty high prey drive so needs a home with no cats and no tiny dogs that look like bunnies. He is fine with larger dogs and greyhounds. He is in a foster home with older kids and is fine with them and likes them. He can be a little grumpy about his space so needs a home without small kids that wouldn't understand that. He loves to be up on the beds and couches. He likes to play with toys and is a happy guy. He is a very confident guy that can be a bit dramatic when he doesn't get what he wants or is asked to do something he doesn't want to do. He just turned 5 on November 24th. His sire is Kiowa Mystic Job and his dam is Kiowa Trey Tatoo. He wasn't crated in his former foster home but has been learning to crate again since he arrived with us. He is very good on leash.

Jojo just arrived from the Southern New England Kennel at the Birmingham Race Course. His adoption was pre arranged by one of our families, that waited for him to retire, so he isn't available at this time. Jojo raced 166 races mainly at the C and B levels but did get up to A level briefly one time. He raced his entire career at Birmingham. He is a small male that raced at 66lbs. He turned 4 on August 6th. His sire is DK's Prime Time and his dam is Designers Choice. Jojo does have a pretty high prey drive and was too interested in kitties during his cat test but corrected. He would look away and behave with a correction from a person and stayed away from the cat after a slap. He did get interested again later though. He may be trainable if he was around cats for awhile, but his foster home has no cats so we think it would be best to place him in a home with no cats. He was similar with a small dog and was interested at first when it would run around but he quickly calmed down and lost interest once he realized it was just a dog. His foster home has a small italian greyhound and he has gotten used to seeing it running around, so we think he is trainable with small dogs with plenty of supervision at first. Jojo is a sweet, happy, friendly guy. He is adjusting fast and seems to be a smart boy that wants to please. He figured out how to get out of a wire crate that wasn't very sturdy and now is in a sturdier one that has proved to be escape proof. Even when he was out unsupervised he had no accidents in the house and didn't get into anything. Seems like he is a very good boy. He makes a very high pitched whistle sound when he whines and even his bark is very high pitched. He sounds like a tiny dog rather than a greyhound.

Prudence wasn't a great racer but she did win some of her 80 races and placed in a lot too. She is a smart girl that quickly figured out how to take off her muzzle before a race and comments on her races often say "no muzzle" or "muzzle in mouth". She is a little girl that raced at 58lbs. Prudence turned 3 on June 23rd. Her sire is Chasin the Richs and her dam is Turbo Paula. Prudence is a very friendly, happy girl with ears that stick straight up when she is curious about something. She did not pass her initial cat test. Her foster family is working with getting her used to their cats and after a few days started doing better with them but still has a pretty high prey drive and has to be watched very closely around them. She likes other dogs and children. She is a natural sitter, most adult greyhounds aren't very comfortable in that position. Prudence has adjusted fast to home life. 

We lost Prudence shortly after her spay from a pulmonary embolism. RIP sweet girl!

Wally just arrived from the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel. He was sent there from the Daytona Beach Race Track because they transport dogs to adoption groups all over the country. He only had 16 races and won 5 of those so was pretty good. He had an injury in April and was kept and rehabbed in hopes that he would be able to return to racing. That didn't happen so was just officially retired. We haven't seen any sign of any injury, so he is long healed. Wally is a sweet guy that didn't show any interest in the cats he met during his cat test. He is in a foster home with cats and started showing some interest in chasing them so the jury is still out on if he will be OK to live with cats. He liked the toddlers he met.

Ticket just arrived from Florida but doesn't have any official races at a track there. He actually raced at Southland in Arkansas and only raced at total of 42 races. Ticket will turn 4 on December 15th and raced at 75lbs. He was very fast, getting up to A level at Southland and even competing in a Stakes race. Ticket looks like he had a minor injury in January of 2017 and was given a break from racing until April of 2017. He only raced one race in April and finished 5th in that race. He must have re-injured himself in that race, because he didn't race again for almost a year. He started back racing in February of 2018. He never returned to his previous speed and only won one race at the lowest D level. He mostly finished toward the back of the pack in his next 13 races. Whatever injury he had, healed up very well, to allow him to go back to racing at the fastest track. He was moved to a lower level track in Florida in hopes he would be a winner there. He never actually raced there and the decision was made recently to retire him. Ticket seems like a calm, friendly guy. He traveled well on the trip up. He passed his cat test easily with barely a sniff. He is very quiet in his kennel and is good on leash. Ticket's sire is the famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kelsos Uptosnuff.

He was fine with a beagle in his foster home. Country had a bump on the bone of his shoulder that was biopsied by our vet. Just a calcification and nothing to worry about, but he does have a spot from the biopsy that needs to heal up. Country is a very happy, waggy, guy that is so loving and sweet.

Own it just arrived from trainer Kathi Lacasse at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a young guy that was too slow in training and just couldn't keep up so he never actually had an official race. He won't turn 2 until July 1st of next year. His sire is Pat C Sabbath and his dam is JT's Pat Benatar. Own it doesn't have a racing weight since he never raced but we would guess him to be in the mid 70s. He is a friendly friendly happy guy that didn't seem too worried about all the changes in his life. Own it passed his small dog test easily so we are hopefully he won't want to chase kitties either. Really sweet boy. He started out wanting to help drive by getting into the front seat. He settled down fast and laid down for the rest of the trip though so travels really well. He slept all night quietly in his crate the first night in his foster home and only whined when he needed to go outside the next day. He seems like a really nice easy going guy for one so young.

Express just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Florida. She also raced some of her 124 races at Derby Lane in Florida and just a few at Wheeling Downs in WV. She got up to the top A level a couple of times but mainly raced at the lower levels. Express is a very friendly happy girl that gives kisses to just about everyone she meets. She is a natural sitter which is unusual for a greyhound. Most just aren't comfortable in that position and choose to stand or lay down instead. Express will drop into a sit often and seems quite comfortable though. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and her dam is Flying Hall. Express turned 3 on March 6th. She passed her cat test without any interest when they were still, when they moved she was interested but wouldn't actually go up to them again. She was was tested with a black cat and a tabby cat - both short haired. Later she was more interested in a white long haired cat roaming the vet's office so seems like she would do best in a home with short haired cats only. She did fine with the small 15lb white Italian Greyhound she met. She loved the toddlers she met and gave them kisses and really seemed to like children. More as we get to know her.

Special Needs! Eight just arrived from a farm in Florida. His sire is Irish - Definate Opinion and his dam is Drop Top. Eight is a very small guy at just 65lbs. He failed out of racing training so never completed the registration process and never got a registered name. He is very young and won't even turn 2 until May 25th. After we got him into a new environment, we discovered that he was feeling and sniffing his way along and appeared to have very limited vision. So the reason he didn't chase the lure was because he couldn't see it. Our vet checked Eight's eyes and found he can see light and dark but definitely has very limited vision. Our vet was not able to make a definitive diagnosis with the equipment she had. Eight's eyes are clear and look fine. They don't bother him or cause him any pain. Our vet said this isn't likely to be something that can be reversed. Eight gets around amazingly well once he learns his surroundings. His lack of eyesight is most noticeable when he is in an unfamiliar place. Dogs have such sensitive noses and use them so much that they are able to smell their way around their environment very quickly.  Eight is doing great in foster care and is turning into a snuggler that wants affection. In just a few days he got comfortable enough in the house to play with toys. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily and is living with both in his foster home. He was appropriate with the toddlers he met and greeted them calmly and didn't shy away but didn't seek them out either. Eight also had to have both of his lower canines removed at our vet because they were not aligned right and were poking into his gums causing pain. He is on soft food now but he will be able to eat regular dog food after his mouth heals up. Eight has the most beautiful glossy coat and is a real stunner and so sweet.

Magic just arrived from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced most of his 102 races there. He also raced some races at Southland in Arkansas. Magic was a good racer getting up to A level at Orlando. He will turn 4 on December 7th and raced at 74lbs. Magic is very unusual because he has a pink nose instead of a black nose like most greyhounds. Very unique and very cute. His sire is KC and All and his dam is Norah Jones. Magic passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either. He has liked the kids he has met too. Magic was a little overwhelmed by all the changes at first but is figuring everything out pretty fast. New things like ceiling fans are a little scary.  He walks very nicely on leash and is quiet in his kennel. He is great on stairs and went up and down with no problem from the start. He is a pretty friendly guy that just needs a little time to get used to a new environment.

Edward just arrived from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is an extra large male that raced at 82lbs. He is a stocky guy that is all muscle. He also raced some of his 114 races at Southland. He was pretty fast getting up to B level at Southland, which is a very tough track. He got up to A level once he moved to Orlando. Edward's litter are all named for characters in the Netflix series House of Cards. We also placed his littermates Doug Stamper, Frank Underwood, Heather Dunbar, and Skorsky. Edward turned 4 on October 29th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is  D's Honey Badger. Edward traveled well and kennels very well. He was friendly, playful and happy at the racing kennel, but has been a little unsure of himself since he has arrived. He is pretty friendly with adults, but was afraid of the kids he met and would shy away from them, so we think he would do better in a home without young kids. He did pass his cat test and just gave the cat a casual sniff and walked off. He also was fine with the small 15lb dog he met. So far Edward has been very calm, well behaved and sweet.

Robert just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He is a very young boy that never actually got to the race track. He just wasn't interested in chasing anything so flunked out of race training. Robert is a tiny guy that doesn't have an official race weight but we would guess him to be around 62lbs. He celebrated his first birthday on May 5th. His sire is WW Time Warp and his dam is Cahillusmarshall. Robert is a sweet submissive puppy boy. He gives everyone he meets kisses and keeps his head body low when meeting people or other dogs. He is also very dramatic and will yelp like a pup if he even thinks something might hurt. His racing name of Iron Man really doesn't fit him, he is not a tough guy at all. Our vet and her staff commented on what a cry baby he was when they were working with him. He is very sweet and loved the kids he met, giving them gentle kisses and wanting to be with them. He passed his cat and small dogs tests easily, as we expected. He didn't want to chase them any more than he wanted to chase the lure. Robert traveled well and crates well. He seems well behaved for a young pup, but he may get more active as he gets more confident in his new surroundings. This is the first time he has been off his farm so everything is very new to him he is definitely very unsure of himself. He was worried during his photo shoot and didn't want to look at the camera.

She got up to A level at a couple of those tracks so was pretty good. Steppin Out's sire is Flyin Man of God and her dam is SE's Tali Aspen. She raced at 62lbs and turned 4 on July 30th. She is an outgoing happy girl that travels well. Steppin Out was too interested in chasing kitties to be able to live with them. We thought she may be trainable at first because she did back off when the cat slapped her but when the cat moved she got too excited again. So she needs a home with no kitties. She did fine with the 15lb Italian greyhound she met though and is being fostered with dogs that size. More as we get to know her.

Ali just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Florida. She also raced at Dubuque in IA and Naples Ft Myers in FL. She raced 121 races and was good, getting up to A level and competing in a couple of Stakes races. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Boc's Snow Queen. Ali turned 4 on Nov 14th and raced at 60bs. She is a light fawn with a blue instead of black nose and blue on her ears. Ali is a cute little girl with a very sweet friendly personality. She traveled well. When she had her vetting our vet discovered that she has an erratic heartbeat that slows down dangerously when under anesthesia. She will need very careful vetting with only very skilled greyhound vets any time she is put under for the rest of her life. Ali did not pass her cat test. She was much too interested in getting the cat. Once the cat slapped her she did stop and didn't want to get near that cat again, so could possibly be trainable with the right cat. Due to her initial excitement level about the cat, we think it would be safer to put her in a home with no kitties though. She seemed fine with a small 15lb Italian greyhound she met and didn't even get up off her bed when he came in the room. Ali liked the small kids she met. Ali's foster home has decided that they want to keep her.   Updated Description!  After spending almost a year with our Director, she has made the difficult decision to let her find a home better matched to her personality.  Alice was a very successful racer and has a natural dominant personality which would be fine under most circumstances.  It caused an issue with the other female in their home, however, that continued to be a problem long-term.  Alice is a wonderful, quirky girl with a lot of interesting funny bits to her big personality.  She will be devoted and bonded to her new family but needs to be the only female in her household.  There were no issues at all with her more submissive and laid back male housemates or the foster dogs moving in and out for adoption.  She loves to travel, never meets a stranger, and her family hated to make this decision.  Someone is going to love this girl!

Loki just arrived from the Orange Park Race track in Florida, where he raced most of his career of 88 races. He also raced briefly at Southland in Arkansas. Loki was good and got up to the top A level and even competed in one stakes race. He raced for Blanchard Kennel. Loki is an extra large male that raced at 88lbs. He turned 3 on August 9th. Loki's sire is the famous Craigie Whistler and his dam is TMC's Jaylowe. He was a kennel favorite and was encouraged to put his feet up on your shoulders to give gentle hugs-see his other pictures. He loves to give kisses too and is very outgoing and social. He is a big dog that is very strong and very curious. He pulls hard on leash and needs some work on leash manners. Loki is definitely a needle nose with a long overbite that makes his nose even longer than most. He passed his cat test easily. When he went up to sniff the cat he got slapped by the cat. He yelped and cried and nearly fell down trying to get away from the cat and wouldn't go back near that cat or any other after that. He loved the small kids he met, but is so big and bouncy that he may do better with kids that are a little older that he wouldn't accidentally knock down. Loki is a big guy with an extra large personality to match.

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.

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.

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.

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.

She was a better racer than her sister starting out at Derby Lane winning most of her top level A races then moved to Southland in Arkansas to race in AA races.

Her sire is Maryville Rumble. She was born Oct 13th of 2006. Heart went to Kansas to became a mom after she was retired and has 4 litters of puppies (26) that are already racing. Now she has retired from being a mom and is ready to start her new career as a pet. Her trainer says both girls were calm well behaved dogs that he loved having the kennel.

Tom is a striking small, young, bright red, brindle boy that weighs 65lb and is mostly red without a lot of striping. He passed his cat and small dog tests and is OK to live with either. Tom was pretty shy when he first arrived but after living in an adoptive home for a year has become much more outgoing. Tom is an economy return that is available again through no fault of his own. His owner loved him and tried to keep him but just couldn't do it. Greyhounds rarely make good watchdogs but Tom may be the exception to that rule. He will bark a couple of barks to let you know people have arrived at the house. For this reason Tom would probably not be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse. Tom walks great on leash and is a happy boy that has good house manners. He does need to go outside every 4 or 5 hours and can't hold it for an entire work day like some greyhounds can. He will need someone that can come home at lunch to let him out or someone that works shorter days. We have him marked older kids only because loud running children have made him nervous in the past. He has been absolutely fine with kids at the meet and greets he has gone to and with visiting children but living with small kids would probably be stressful for him. We think Tom would do best in a home with other dogs to hang out with when people leave because he does seem to stress when he is left totally alone but does much better when he is with other dogs. Tom celebrated his 4th birthday on Christmas day. Just look at that cute puppy face! Already home acclimated too!

Tom passed away in 2018. He will be missed very much.

Beckham just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida. He is a young fawn male that preferred to play instead of race so was retired with no official races. Since he has no races listed he doesn't have an official racing weight but he weighed about 71lbs at the vet. He is a tall boy and will probably put on a few more lbs in retirement and be a larger male. His sire is Counselor and his dam is CTW Rosemary. He was born on a beautiful farm in Texas. Beckham celebrated his 2nd birthday on the day he arrived with us November 1. He is a very outgoing guy that is playful and silly. He still has a lot of puppy in him. He seems like he is a pretty smart boy because he figured out how to escape from a wire crate. He is in a plastic vari style crate now that works best for the houdini types. Beckham doesn't seem to be phased by much. He likes everyone he meets. He is curious about everything new and wants to sniff or taste it and is willing to climb up to get it so will need some work on manners. Beckham can be noisy in his crate so wouldn't be a good apartment or townhouse dog. He was too interested in the cat when he was tested so needs a home with no kitties. He is being fostered with a small Italian Greyhound and was also fostered with an older bassett hound so should be OK with smaller dogs. He spends a lot of time trying to convince other dogs to play with him and would do best with a playful dog that would enjoy that type of thing. He loved the small toddlers he met and kept going back to them to kiss them every chance he got. Beckham is an adorable pup with a big personality that is going to be a lot of fun.

Tara is a brood mom that we met on one of our track trips. She came in from the Bolton Farm in Florida. She raced at the Bolton kennel at Sanford Orlando most of her career. She also raced briefly at Flagler and Naples Ft Myers. Tara was a big star the race track and won an amazing 9 top A level races IN A ROW. She was so fast that her finishes were described as Electrifying, Cyclonic, Explosive, and Super Sonic. Unless she was bumped, blocked or actually fell, she almost always won. A true superstar that was retired at the top A level in November of 2015. She went back to the farm to have pups then. We got to meet some of them on one of our group's track trips. Now she has been retired from mom duties and is available for adoption. She turned 6 on January 12th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Fuzzys Autumn. This is a very special girl and her owner and trainer want to stay in touch with her pet owners and get updates. Tara has been in a adoptive home since November, but their dog bit her and she was uncomfortable around him after that. They think she would do better in another home. Tara is more comfortable around women and can be a little timid of men at first. Tara passed her cat test and just sniffed the cat. She was fostered with small dogs and was fine with them too.

Rudy is just coming in from the Orange Park Race Track. He didn't actually race there though. He raced all of his 30 races at the Lester Raines Kennel at Wheeling Downs in WV. He was actually very good getting up to the top AA level there. His last race there was at the top AA level in July. He was was taken out of racing at that point because of an injury and rehabbed in hopes he could return to racing later. He was moved to Jacksonville to a slower track to finish out his career, but never returned to his former speed so has been retired. Rudy is a smaller male racing at 68lbs. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Kelsos Jenna. Rudy passed his cat test without much interest at all. When he first arrived he seemed just a little timid and overwhelmed. More as we get to know him.

Envoy initially came in from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Kennel Club in FL. His last race was actually at Derby Lane in September and he also raced at Dubuque earlier. He was moved to Orlando in hopes he would be competitive there,  but but never had an official race at that track. He won a couple of races early on, but usually came in toward the back of the pack so the decision was made to retire him after 20 races. We got him in October of 2018. Envoy is a young black male that won't turn 3 until November 25th. He raced at 71lbs. His sire is Flying Titanium and his dam is Flying Cesium. Envoy is an energetic guy that still is pretty young. He would love to have kids or other dogs to play with. Envoy has been in a home living with a female greyhound since December and is being returned to us for financial reasons and not because of anything he did. He is very friendly and did great at large greyhound event with lots of people and dogs around. He walked politely around and loved all the attention he got. Envoy did not pass his cat test so needs a home without kitties. He needs further testing with small dogs.This gorgeous fella is ready to start looking for his new family.

Ally just arrived from a dog farm in Arkansas. She raced 70 races mostly at Wheeling Downs in WV and was very good getting up to the top AA levels at one of the toughest tracks. She also raced briefly at Southland. After she retired in January of 2018, she went back to the farm to be a mom. She had just one puppy a few weeks ago. It was too big and she had trouble having it. The puppy didn't make it and her owners decided to just retire her instead of having more litters. Ally will turn 4 on January 6th. Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is Cidina. She raced at 65lbs. She is pretty good on leash and potties on leash so may do fine with potty walks instead of having a fenced yard. Ally travels really well and just gets in the car and lays down. She is calm in her crate. She can be just a little timid when she first meets you but did great at a busy shopping area and was very happy to let people come up and pet her. She just didn't go up to the people asking to be petted. She does like kids and gets more excited to see them than adults. She is a grinner that smiles when excited. She warms up very fast and was very happy to see us and waggy after just one day. She has a fantastic calm personality. Ally was interested in the first cat she met, but after that was fine with the other cats she met and not interested in them at all. She even walked nicely past several ducks. Ally has the glossiest, gorgeous, black coat. She had an injury to her tail when she was young so now has a cute little nub that is only about 3 inches long. She thinks it makes her even cuter and she doesn't have to worry about it getting shut in a door or gate like other greyhounds.

He is a mostly white boy with a few brindle spots and one ear that flips over sometimes. He raced at 71lbs.Throttle turned 3 on March 7th. He is friendly and waggy. He loves to give kisses and seems to be really fond of children. He is very quiet in his kennel so may be a good apartment dog. He also potties nicely on leash so may do fine without a fenced yard being leash walked. Throttle travels well and is really sweet. He passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. His sire is Makeshift and his dam is HI Noon G Thang.

Missy came in initially from the Birmingham Race Course. She only raced one of her 49 races there though. She traveled around to quite a few tracks. Missy started out at Dubuque in IA, then went to Wheeling Downs in WV, Gulf in TX and Orange Park in FL then finally Birmingham AL. She did get up to A level once at Orange Park but just wasn't a really good racer. She moved around a lot looking for a place where she would be competitive. Missy turned 3 on November 28th and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is WW's Whiteclover. She was called Minnie at the track but has since been renamed Missy by her first family. She is a pretty timid girl that will need time to warm up. Missy seems to be little more shy with men than kids and females. She was initially fostered with a calm 8 year old child. Most timid dogs are terrified around very loud fast moving small kids though so she probably needs a home with quiet older kids or no kids. Missy travels well. She is excellent on leash and goes potty on leash walks, so may do OK without a fenced yard. Missy has been in a wonderful home since October of 2018. Her family is elderly and both have fallen recently. One broke a hip and one broke a back, and one is still in the hospital. They aren't going to be able to care for a dog anymore and have asked us to find Missy a new home. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Missy is doing well in her foster home with some several small dogs. She comes with a big bed and some toys that were sent with her to help her with the transition. Missy is a sweet girl that will just need a little time to warm up. She has met a couple of families, but doesn't interact at all on the first meeting, so any potential families need to understand that. She is very well behaved in her foster home and once she is home with you she will warm up. She is just a shy girl that just needs a week or two in a new home to come out of her shell.

Parker just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He raced all of his 99 races there and was a good racer. He mainly raced at the top A level and won quite a few races. Parker raced at 68lbs so is a smaller guy. He just turned 3 on September 22nd. Parker's sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is WW's Rock Star. Parker is a very calm, easy going guy. Although he resists going in his kennel at first, once he is in there he crates quietly and is being fostered in a townhouse. Parker is excellent on leash. He gets along great with the other greyhounds in his foster home, male and female. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be fine to live with either. He also travels really well. We were told that Parker was a little shy when he first arrived at the track but he warmed up to his trainers within 2 weeks and followed them around and was their best friend once he warmed up. He has been a little jumpy with his foster mom if she moves fast or is loud, but he comes when called and will take food out of your hand with no problem, so isn't too shy. Parker seems like a very sweet guy that would be an easy first or fourth greyhound and he is so handsome. Those eyes just draw you in!!

She placed 3rd in the 2016 Orange Park Patton Silver Cup and was a finalist in the 2016 Orange Park Bestbet Sprint Classic. Those races are reserved for the best racers at the track. Sammy raced 222 races, and almost always raced at the very top A level races against the other top dogs. She won a lot of her races!! Sammy is a very friendly, happy girl with a great personality and loves everyone she meets. Even though she will turn 5 on November 14th she is still bouncy and waggy. In all her pictures her tail was always a blur because she was wagging it the whole time. Sammy's sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is WW Kay Sun. Sammy did not pass her cat test so needs a home without them. She was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound she met. She does seem to need careful introductions to small to medium fuzzier dogs though. She tends to mistake fuzzy things for bunnies until she sniffs them and figures out what they are. Sammy travels well. She can be a little loud in her kennel at first so probably would not be a good apartment dog. More as we get to know her.

Eugene just arrived from a Florida farm where he has been living since he retired from racing in March of 2018. He raced mainly at the lower levels but did get up to B level a few times in his 57 races. He raced most of his career at D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane, but also raced briefly at Gulf. Most 4 year olds would have a lot more races. Eugene was taken out of racing for a year from December 5th of 2016 and not put back into racing until Nov of 2017 after a collision and fall in a race. He went back and had 15 more races after his year long break. Eugene is a gorgeous 71lb black male. He is the sweetest, most gentle boy, that gives kisses to humans and other dogs alike when he meets them. He passed his cat test easily and has been fine with a small dog too. He likes kids and everyone else he meets. He pulls on leash some, curiously checking things out. He is a calm guy in the house though and very well behaved. He crates really well but does whine sometimes, so probably wouldn't be quiet enough for townhouse or apartment living. At the track, some of the other boys would bully him and he didn't even defend himself. His track trainers ended up always turning him out with one or two other gentle boys like him, rather than with the larger pack of more rowdy males. Eugene will turn 4 on September 26th. His Sire is Makeshift and his dam is Celtic Dream.

Bianca is a young, beautiful, red, girl that turned 2 on February 2nd. She raced at 68lbs. Bianca started out her career at Southland in Arkansas but wasn't fast enough for that really tough track, so she was moved to D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane in Florida. She did much better at that track and was winning, but she hurt her leg in her 12th race (on May 2nd), so was retired. She was sent to a farm in Florida to rehab her leg then and has been there for the last 5 months. Now her leg is healed up and she is ready to start her second career as a pet. She is going to make a great pet! She is fun, energetic and has a lot of personality. She is very happy and loving with a tail that wags most of the time. She is settling in very quickly and was already relaxing by laying at her foster mom's feet after the first day. Although she is happy and bouncy at first, she does settle well and sleeps a lot of the day like a typical greyhound. She can be a little whiny in her kennel so may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog. Bianca did not pass her cat test and was way too interested in chasing the cat so needs a home without kitties. She was fine with the small white dog she met, but needed to sniff it and realize it was a dog. She is a smart girl that is so gorgeous! She LOVES children. We have her listed as older children only just because she was so excited to play with the toddlers she met that she was bouncing and bumping into them. She would be great in a home that had slightly older kids that were big enough that she could play with them without knocking them down. She is just a strong girl that gets excited at first when meeting people and kids. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Saluted.

Nickle just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at Palm Beach. She raced most of her 114 races at Tri-State in West Virginia though. She was a very good racer, racing at the top AA level at Tri-State. She is a very unusual black brindle girl that at first glance looks completely black. If you look close you can see faint orange stripes barely visible in her fur though. Nickle raced at 64lbs. She will turn 4 on November 23rd. Her sire is the famous Defrim Bale from Australia and her dam is Big Ego. Nickle passed her cat test easily without much interest. She also passed her small dog test easily so should be able to live with either. She is a bit overwhelmed by all the changes in her life but is calmly friendly and will stand next to you to be petted and will look up into your eyes with the sweetest expression on her face. She was a little whiny in her crate but did quiet down eventually. She may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog though. She seems like a very calm girl. She is pretty good on leash too. Nickle has a broken rib on one side, what they call the floating rib, that is the last one before her waist. It is a very old injury from when she was a tiny pup. It can happen if a pup is stepped on by the mother or during the birthing process. It does make a noticeable bump on one side. Our vet didn't believe it needed to be removed since it is such an old injury and is not causing her any pain.

She was too interested in cats at first meeting at the track so they didn't think she would be OK with them. When we introduced her to our cat she remembered cats had claws and wouldn't get near it after the first time the cat swatted her. She only wanted to get out of the room and away from that scary cat. Since she did great in our cat test, but was interested at her first meeting, we listed her as trainable with cats. Prudent also did OK with the small dog she met. She has a wonderful, very outgoing personality. Very friendly and loving and will give you lots of kisses. She was loud in her crate at first but did quiet down except to let you know when she needs to go outside. She may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog though.

He only raced 13 races and didn't win one of them so he was retired young. He won't turn 2 until October 20th. Sarge is a very sweet guy that is friendly and happy. He traveled well on the trip up from Florida and seems to like to ride in cars. Sarge is very curious and spent a lot of time checking out everything in the house. He gets along very well with other dogs and plays nicely. Sarge wasn't fazed by the hardwood floors or the roomba. He crates well and was OK being crated in a room by himself. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is SJ's Flyingpenny. Sarge passed his cat and small dog tests with just a few curious sniffs so should be fine to live with either. He was friendly with the small kids he met too.

Sparky just arrived from the Ebro race track in Florida with his two brothers Darren Sproles (Snoopy) and Adam Schefter (Sarge). He is a tiny, cute, white boy with brindle spots that only weighs 66lbs. He raced only 16 races and didn't win one of them so was retired young. Sparky won't turn 2 until October 20th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is SJ's Flying Penny. Sparky and his brother Snoopy look like identical twins but their brother Sarge is a brindle boy. Sparky is very outgoing and friendly. He doesn't seem to be bothered by much. All the boys traveled very well on the trip up from Florida and seem to like car rides. Sparky is a good singer like his brother Snoopy. They both do a very quiet roo sometimes that sounds like a very quiet wolf howl. It is not loud though, just a quiet song that can barely be heard in the next room. He did great with the small dog he met and also passed his cat test without any interest. He seemed to like the small children he met too.

Snoopy was also called Stubby at the track because he has a short tail that is only about 6 inches long. Snoopy is a cute, tiny, boy that is white with brindle spots. He only weighs 64lbs. Snoopy came in with his two brothers Rex Birkhead (Sparky) and Adam Schefter (Sarge) from the Ebro race track. Snoopy and Sparky look like identical twins (except for the tail) but Sarge is a brindle boy. Snoopy raced 16 races and didn't win one of them so was retired young. He won't turn 2 until October 20th. Snoopy's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is SJ's FlyingPenny. Snoopy is a friendly boy that is cute and very sweet. He did great with a small dog he met and tried to get him to play with him. He also passed his cat test without any interest. He seems like a sensitive guy that worries sometimes. His main worry is about his footing. He doesn't like to walk on odd surfaces indoors and just freezes until he gets his courage up to take a few steps. It doesn't matter if the floors are shiny, slippery or not. Outside he will walk on the same tile and wood without worrying about it and did the 4 steps to get outside with no trouble at all. He is a very silly pup that still has a lot to learn. Snoopy travels really well and loves to go for rides. He is a very good singer and does a soft quiet roo that sounds like a wolf howl but he does it very softly so it can barely be heard in the next room. More as we get to know him.

Ella just arrived from Figuroa Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She was owned by Lisa Wheeler. Ella raced 46 races at Derby Lane, Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando Race Tracks in Florida. She raced mainly at the lower levels and only won a few races so she was retired pretty young. Her sire is Surf Lorian and her dam is Monoco Gold. Ella is a cute 67lb brindle female that just turned 3 on September 9th. She is very friendly and happy and seems to like kids and everyone else she has met. She loves her food and is a very good eater. Very good on leash and very affectionate. Ella loves squeaky toys and likes to play. She is a bit higher energy than the average greyhound so will be a lot of fun and won't be a total couch potato. She was much too interested in cats to pass her cat test - we tested her twice to be sure. She did fine with a small white dog after she sniffed and realized it was just a dog and not the bunny it looked like. She is very social and very sweet. She is doing great in her foster home. She was a little loud in her crate at first but is getting better. She is probably not going to be a good apartment dog though.

Maddy is a tiny fawn girl that only weighs 50lbs but should weigh 56lbs according to her racing weight. She celebrates her 7th birthday on December 22nd. She is a return that has already been in a home for years so already has good house manners and is well behaved. She is a very sweet loving girl but can be a little timid at first and we think loud fast moving kids are likely to scare her so we listed her as older children only. She passed her small dog test so can live with them but still needs cat testing. She is calm and sweet and so adorable! Maddy's sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is TM's Very Few Do.

After she was adopted by the Mitchell family, they returned her to Project Racing Home in Randleman NC. That group let us know that they rehomed her with another family. They let us know that Maddie passed away in 2018.

Buddy is a medium sized guy that raced at 74lbs. His birthday is July 30th and he is 3 years old. Buddy's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is Bee Bee so he is related to several dogs that we have placed already. Buddy seems to be a little too interested in chasing cats so will need a home without them. Buddy is very loving, happy, friendly guy and wants to be with people. When people leave he needs to have other dogs around. He doesn't do well being left entirely by himself and gets stressed. Buddy is a super sweet guy that is very loving.

Buddy crossed the rainbow bridge in 2018 and will be missed

Mai raced 27 races at Lincoln Park and Palm Beach. She wasn't very good but had a blood line that was good so she became a mom after she retired. She had 3 pups in January of 2009 and now has been retired from that life too. Mai was born on 3/24/05. She has settled into her new foster home very nicely. She walks very well on leash & potties on leash, crates well & loves to go on car rides. Mai can be an active girl & just loves playing with her toys, squeakies best of all!! She's gotten along very well with long dogs & 5 lb dogs in her foster homes. She can get a little protective of toys she's playing closely with tho so is learning manners on proper sharing. She's a small to average size girl at around 62 lbs & has a gorgeous petite face. We got to introduce her to stairs which she took in stride with a little practice. Mai would love to have 2 legged or 4 legged siblings to play with & a fenced yard or play dates to stretch her legs every so often. She is a social butterfly & enjoys going to meet & greets to show off her beauty & meet everyone that will stop to pet her. May also enjoys the quiet moments of snuggling on the floor & would fit into almost any home!!

Mai was loved by the Fischer family and was loved very much. She crossed the bridge in 2017 at 12 years old from Osteosarcoma - bone cancer

Mercy is a white female that has black ticking (freckles or dalmation spots). She just turned four April 23 and raced at 60lbs. Mercy is a fun, playful, energetic girl. She was fine with a medium sized dog that she was tested with at the track but was marginal with the cats in her cat test - not horrible but not great either so they think she may not be safe with them. We will do more testing after she is vetted to see how she is with smaller dogs and may redo her cat test to see if how well she responds to training with the cats.

Mercy was adopted by the Reich family 5/9/11 and was very much loved up until she passed away 3/21/18

Goofy is a tiny guy that is smaller than most female greyhounds. This cute guy actually grins. That is why we picked him out of all the available dogs at the race kennel. If anyone got near his kennel he would give you a big grin and try to kiss your hand through the bars while he was wagging his whole body. If someone talked to him he would spin around in his crate in happiness. He is such a cute little, happy, loving guy we just couldn't resist him. He potties well on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard. He has great house manners and likes children and has lived with them in his foster home. He gets along well with the greyhounds in his foster home males and females. He still needs to be tested with cats. Goofy is a fun, playful, silly guy that loves playing with toys and balls. His foster family has nicknamed him Hollywood because he is always smiling and looks ready for his closeup. He is going to be a fun little guy for some lucky family. Congratulations to his foster family the McKees!!! Goofy will be staying with them!

Goofy ended up being called Jack and was in his home with the McKee family until he passed away in February of 2018.

Quaker is a huge, red, male, greyhound that raced at 94lbs. He raced at the Caliente track in Mexico then moved to Derby Lane in Florida and raced most of his 142 races there. He was pretty good and eventually got up to the top A level. In his last race on Feb 4th he broke a bone in his leg. He had surgery in Florida and was sent to Pro Greyhound in NC, a greyhound rehab center. He is expected to make a full recovery. We will place him as soon as he is released by the vets for adoption. That usually takes 8 to 12 weeks. Quaker is a very friendly guy with a sweet calm personality. Very loving. His sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen and his dam is Bella Folklore. More as we get to know him. 

Quaker lived a very happy life with his new family at the beach until he earned his wings on 8/24/18 due to bone cancer- osteosarcoma.

Trent may have a boyish name but she is actually a girl. She was named after her famous father Trent Lee and her dam Soft Melody. She was also a very good racer, racing at one of the top tracks in the country Wheeling Downs. Trent raced at the top levels there in AA and even competed in a Stakes Race for the best dogs racing at that track. She raced 102 races before being retired to be a mom. She has a total of 15 puppies in 3 litters listed burn 2009, 2010 and 2012 but may still have another more recent litter that will be registered to race soon. She has been living on the beautiful Blu Too Farm in Florida and has now been retired from her mom duties and is looking for a couch of her own. She will turn 11 on December 6th. Trent raced at 65lbs. She is a very young 10 and is in phenomenal shape for a 10 year old. She is extremely affectionate and is very laid back and loving. She has a pretty high prey drive so they don't believe she will be able to live with cats. Because Trent is an older girl, she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200.

Trent was adopted by the Martin Family in July of 2016. They had her for two happy years. They lost her to bone cancer in August of 2018.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Rementer Family of Murrells Inlet 9/22/18

Lip just arrived from Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is a gorgeous, rare, all white, male with only some tiny speckles on his ears and no actual spots. He raced 148 races. Lip was a pretty good racer and got up to the top A level briefly a couple of times during his career. He was mainly competitive at the lower levels. Lipp raced at 73lbs. His sire is Hi Noon Hero and his dam is Atascocita Dory. LIpp passed his cat test without much more than an ear prick in the cat's direction so should be OK to live with cats. He is also good with small dogs. He loves having other dogs around and they seem to help his confidence, so we would love to find a home for him with another dog. Lip can be a little timid at first in new situations. He seems like he is a sweet, sensitive guy that startles easily. A small child threw a toy for another dog and it scared him. Lipp wouldn't come out of his crate if any of the small kids were around for a couple of days after that. His foster dad came home late and night and surprised him. Lipp didn't want him to come near him for a couple days after that. Lipp loves his foster mom and likes to stay close to her. He did gradually warm back up to the small kids and would cautiously approach them for petting but we think he would be more comfortable living in a quiet home without small rowdy kids. Lip is being fostered now with teenagers and he absolutely loves them. So a home with older kids would be fine for him. Lipp seems like he would be a good watch dog because he will bark an alarm if something startles him. For that reason he wouldn't be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse. Lip is a sweet, sensitive guy that is very affectionate and loving especially with females and older teenage kids. He can be a little more cautious with men but will warm up with a little time.

Blast arrived with her sister Gardenia from the same farm. Blast was a big star at the track and was the 2013 Wheeling WVGOBA Juvenile Champion and also was a 2014 Wheeling WVGOBA Sprint Stake finalist. Wheeling is one of the top tracks in the country and she was one of the top racers there. Blast raced 97 races and always at the top AA level. She won a lot of the top level races even winning 5 in a row. She was retired from the top level in April of 2015 and went back to the farm to be a mom. She had a total of 20 pups that have been registered so far. 5 in July of 2015, 8 in March of 2016 and 7 in October of 2016. There may be a younger litter that hasn't been registered yet. Blast has retired now from mom duties and is ready for a couch of her own. Blast is a cute little light brindle girl that will turn 8 on December 13th. She raced at 64lbs. Blast's Sire is BD"s Grayson and her dam is AMF Bone Bruise. Blast passed her cat test with just some initial sniffing then lost interest. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home too and was friendly with the children she met. She is very outgoing with everyone. She seems like she is pretty calm but still has a fun playful silly side too. She carries her head and her tail high and just has a quiet confidence about her that so many mama dogs have. She has been encouraged to give hugs at the farm and sit because she does both. She wants nothing more than to put paws up on your chest for a hug and will just stand there as if expecting you to dance with her. She is pretty gentle about it but may not be a good choice for someone that is unsteady on their feet. Blast is very good on leash.

Gardenia arrived with her sister Blast. She retired from the Wheeling Race Track back in January of 2015 after she was run into by another dog in a race and broke her hock. She went back to the farm for rehab and she has just been hanging out there as a pet for the last 3 years. Gardenia also raced at Tri State in WV. She has 57 races listed and got up to the top AA level at Tri State. She also ran in one stakes race so she was a good racer that would have had a much longer career if she hadn't had the injury. She is a cute brindle girl that has a pure white face and white on her legs and throughout her brindle fur giving her the prettiest look. She won't turn 8 until December 13th so has gone prematurely white. She is starting to look more like a blue brindle with all the gray. She raced at 60lbs. Gardenia's sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is AMF Bone Bruise. Gardenia passed the cat test with just some curious sniffing at first, when the cat slapped toward her she jumped back and didn't want to get close to the cat again. The cat didn't actually even slap her. She has been fine with the small dog in her foster home too. She was a little nervous around small kids and chose not to interact with them most of the time. Gardenia is pretty friendly but is a little less confident at first than her vivacious sister Blast and seems to be a little more cautious of trying new things like steps at first. She has not tried to hug anyone so far like her sister does. She seems pretty laid back, well behaved and good on leash. Her leg has been healed for 3 years now and she is fine to run and play on it and it doesn't slow her down.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Simpson Family of Monroe NC 3/18/19

Sweet Senior! Kwanza was a super star when he was racing. He was the Winner of the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Middle Distance Championship and placed 3rd in the 2010 Tri-State WVGOBA Open Sprint. He raced 80 races at Tri-State and Wheeling winning at the top A and AA levels and competing in many Stakes races reserved for the best racers at those tracks. He was retired from racing in December of 2011 and has been at his owners farm since then. He had to have a toe amputated on his front foot at some point which is pretty common in pet greyhounds if they dislocate or break a toe. It is long healed and isn't even noticeable unless you are counting toes. Since the painful toe was removed there is nothing there to cause pain and he can run and play normally. Kwanza did sire one litter of pups back in 2015 but they weren't great racers like he was, so it doesn't look like he sired any more pups after that. He has been just hanging out at the farm as a pet until now. Kwanza raced at 72lbs and is short and stocky. His sire is Larking About and his dam is Myokie Flame. We already placed two half sisters Rico's Tignanello and Rico's By A Nose (also same mom). Kwanza will turn 11 on January 31st. Since Kwanza is a senior guy over 8 he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Kwanza passed his cat tests with some initial interest that only lasted until the cat slapped him. Then we couldn't pull him back to the cat. We think he would be easily trainable with a confident cat. Kwanza walks perfectly on a loose leash and doesn't pull. He gets along really well with other greyhounds. He has been completely vetted and had a dental and a few tooth extractions. Kwanza was placed in an adoptive home in October but has been returned due to having accidents in the house. Our vet checked him and he just has a urinary tract infection, which is being treated with antibiotics. He will be available for adoption after our vet has retested to make sure he is clear of infection. Kwanza is a bit of a marker due to living on a farm his entire life and being able to potty whenever and wherever he wanted to. He will need training and supervision in any new place to learn where he is allowed to go.

On Vet Hold! Axe is a big, friendly, black male that raced at 79lbs. He will turn 8 on December 22nd but you would never guess his age because he has not gotten white in the face yet like most other dogs his age. Axe was quite the star during his racing days, racing at 3 of the top tracks in the country and winning at the top A and AA levels and competing in Stakes races reserved for the best dogs at those tracks. He only raced 41 races and retired in April of 2013 due to a broken hock. The leg is long healed and he runs and plays normally on it. Axe has been hanging out at his owners farm since he was rehabbed from his injury. Axe's sire is Odd Skill and his dam is Myokie Flame. His half brother from the same mom, Rico's Kwanza, came in at the same time. We already placed two half sisters that also had the same mom, Rico's Tignanello and Rico's By A Nose. Axe was very interested in the cat when he first met it, but after the cat slapped him a few times he didn't want to go near it again. We think he would probably be able to live with a confident cat that would slap him if he showed too much interest the first time they met. Axe has been living in a foster home with a small white dog and has done fine with him. Axe is very vocal and barks constantly if awake and seems almost frantic. He drinks constantly and then has to pee all the time another sign of stress. We have had two greyhound vets board him for extended amounts of time and do testing on him in hopes we can find a physical cause. They have tried medications to calm him down. So far none of their testing has shown a physical cause for his behaviors and the medications to calm him have had no effect. When Axe was neutered our vet did find a tumor in one testicle that was removed. Surgery is curative for most testicular tumors but it is possible that the tumor could have spread to his brain which might explain his odd, frantic, behavior. Axe has been under vet supervision for weeks already and is still on vet hold until we know more. 

Sadly Axe continued to progress quickly. Our vets felt that it was a brain tumor that was causing all his physical problems and recommended that we let him go. RIP big guy! One of his foster homes, the Owens family, decided to do a memorial adoption for him.

Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Blanton Family 8/31/13

Tabor is a 78lb brindle male that is full of personality. When he is excited and happy to see someone he does a huge grin - it is something that few greyhounds do. Be sure to look at his other pictures to see a picture of it. We all love the grinners! Although it looks a little scary to people that aren't familiar with greyhounds it is a submissive, happy, friendly gesture that a few special greyhounds do when they are very happy and it is a true smile. Tabor really has an exceptional personality and will be a fun dog for a lucky family. Tabor just celebrated his 4th birthday on July 15th. His sire is Brady Thomas and his dam is Solwest. He raced at Southland in Arkansas but most of his 132 races were at Derby Lane in FL. Tabor was a very good racer even competing in Stakes races. Tabor did not pass his cat test so needs a home without cats. He has done fine with the small dogs in his foster home though. He is a VERY friendly, loving, goofy guy that is very happy and friendly and loves people!! Such a cute brindle boy!!

Tabor passed away on 8/4/18 after breaking his leg due to bone cancer.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Pulley Family of Martinez GA 9/23/18

Sweet Senior! Witty is a girl that was originally placed by another group up North, NGAP, years ago. Her owner moved to NC and was only able to keep two of her dogs where she moved and had to re-home Witty. She said that Witty is a goofy, playful girl that is really sweet. Witty retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2012. She raced 55 races there and only won 2 of those. She did place some, even if she didn't win, so was able to keep racing for a little while. Witty is an adorable black female that is starting to get white in circles around her eyes giving her a very cute goggle look. Witty raced at 65lbs and turned 9 on April 16th. Since she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250. Her sire is Tempo Petrocelli and her dam is LookButDontTouch. Witty was already spayed, but she just got a fresh dental, blood work, heart worm test and anything else she needs and has a clean bill of health. Witty injured her tail at some point previously and had to have it removed so she has a cute little nub now. WItty is a sweet girl that is friendly and silly. She is getting along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is good with small dogs as well and passed her cat test without much interest so should be fine to live in a home with either.

Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Smith Family of Blue Ridge GA 10/28/16

Marcy is a white female with black spots that is a very special girl. She has an esophogeal disorder that caused her to throw up when she ate, so she was very tiny and the runt of the litter. She barely survived. Eventually her owner figured out why she was so thin and smaller than her littermates. Marcy had to be fed separately out of a raised feeder and needed softened food that was easy to swallow to keep from choking on it. Her racing owner hoped she would eventually grow out of the problem as she got older, but she didn't. Marcy never raced because of her issue. Her racing owner didn't think that anyone would want to adopt a girl that had this disorder, so just planned to keep her on the farm as a pet for her whole life. We know there is a special family out there for Marcy, in spite of her disorder. We have placed other dogs with the same problem. Although Marcy is small for a female greyhound, she is healthy. As you can see from the photos she is able to maintain a good weight using the raised feeder and making sure her food is very soft. She does need to be walked on a harness instead of using a collar to avoid pressure on her esophagus but that is her main limitation. Marcy is a sweet, friendly girl that loves everyone she meets. She turned 7 on April 20th. Her sire is Ardkill Jamie and her dam is JT's Petey Girl. We placed her littermate Hanks Luckycharm and DDM's Dynamite years ago. Marcy is very well behaved in a house and very quiet in her crate so may be a good choice for an apartment. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Be sure to look at Marcy's other photos to see pictures of her as a puppy. She is the tiny one in the group. Marcy has been fostered with kids and cats and is great with both. She is a snuggler that likes to be as close as possible. She loves to cuddle in bed with her foster family- kids and adults. Although she would like to be up on the couch with her family, she doesn't like her feet going between the cushions on the couch. So she figured out that sleeping on the ottoman was a better place for her. Marcy has been in an adoptive home but was unable to hold her pee all day while they worked. They think she would do better in a home where people weren't gone all day. We are getting her checked for a urinary tract infection, since she didn't have this problem in her previous foster homes. 

Marcy was adopted by a wonderful family and suddenly passed away in July of 2018 due to some internal bleeding that couldn't be fixed. Rest in Peace sweet girl!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Florence Family of Washington GA 8/29/18

Frilly just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. She only ran 8 races and was doing great winning half of those. She had an ankle injury in January and they rehabbed her in hopes she could go back to racing. She healed up very well but never got back to her former speed and had some ankle soreness after practice races, so was just retired officially. She is fine to run and play as a pet and you can't even see where she was injured but she wouldn't be one that is likely to be able to do competitive sports like Agility or Lure Coursing because of the old injury. Frilly just turned 2 on June 10th so is a young girl. Her sire is Golden Squire and her dam is Fancy N Frilly. She raced at 62lbs. Frilly passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She was a little worried and stressed on the long trip up from Florida but did better on her one hour trip to the vet. She can be just a little bit timid with new people and is pretty submissive getting low to the ground sometimes. She warms up fast though and is an awesome little girl and such a gorgeous red brindle color. She seemed to like the kids she met.

Kandy is a 66lb dark brindle female. She turned 3 on February 18th. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is Kandy Bale. She is a friendly happy girl that does a greyhound grin when she is happy. Very cute girl. Kandy was only a little interested in the cat when she first met it and quickly lost interest so we think she would be trainable with some supervision. She was fine with the small dog she met and seemed to like kids.

Nelly is an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His full racing name is Nelly, one of the shorter registered names we have seen. He retired from Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He was a fast boy and also raced at the top track in the country, Southland in Arkansas. He raced 133 races total. Nelly just turned 4 on April 23rd. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is Taurasi. Nelly is a big, tall, calm, guy that got along very well with the other dogs at the race track, males and females. He settled into home life as soon as he got to his foster home. He found the bed and laid right down and went to sleep. He wasn't worried about the wood floors or the steps and seems like he would just settle easily into any situation. He loves snuggles and toys.Nelly was much too focused on cats he met to be able to live with them . He has been living in a foster home with a small white dog though and is very good with him. Nelly has liked the small kids he met. He did make a little noise in his kennel at first but is very quiet in his crate now so he may do OK in a townhouse or apartment. Nelly is a happy friendly guy that gets along well with others and also seems to do well when he is by himself so may do well as an only dog too. He is so handsome, sweet and calm! Just a gentle giant.

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.

Carla just arrived from Larson Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a brindle female that raced at 63lbs. She only raced 19 races and never won one of those and only placed a few times. She was retired young and won't turn 2 until October 16th. Carla arrived with her littermate Hurricane Berry. Her sire is Barcelona Boss and her dam is Hurricane Riot. We placed her mom's mom Audacious. Carla travels well and is a natural sitter. Carla is a happy, friendly, waggy girl and so pretty! She was very interested in the cat until it slapped her, then she screamed and ran. She kept squealing for awhile and we checked her for a scratch, but found nothing. She wouldn't get near the cat again. When she had to walk past the cat to get out of the room she started screaming again even though the cat never touched her. She seems like she is very dramatic. We think she would be easily trainable by a cat that would slap her just once. She did fine with the small dog she was fostered with and was very friendly with children. She travels well too. Carla can be pushy about getting what she wants, but her dramatic side means that she corrects pretty easily. Carla is a natural sitter (it is not a comfortable position for most greyhounds) and is very good on leash.

His sister Hurricane Carla is arriving with him from the same kennel. Their sire is Barcelona Boss and their dam is Hurricane Riot. Riot's mother, Audacious, is a dog that we placed. Berry travels well and so far has been pretty quiet in his kennel.  He seems like a calmly friendly guy that is perfectly happy exploring the backyard by himself and isn't too needy. He passed his cat test easily with only a casual sniff. He also seemed to like the kids he met and did fine with the small dogs he saw too.

She gets along well with other dogs and with our very active boys (ages 10 months to 14 years). She is small dog and cat tolerant. She is a fun playful girl and would be great for a family with kids and/or other dogs. Ritzy has been living in a home and was returned along with her housemate Ramses because the owners couldn't keep them and not because of any behavior problems. Ritzy should be a fun well behaved addition to just about any family. She loves to go for rides as you can see in her photo.

Ritzy was adopted by the Pulliam Family in 2010 and lived 8 years with them until she passed away in July of 2018. RIP Ritzy.

He is an unusual blue fawn color that is kind of a grayish peach color that is a rare color for greyhounds. Canelo just retired from Southland on July 2nd. He was fast to be at that track since it is the top track with toughest competition. He did race a few races at the top level there and did win some races. He has 99 races listed and a few of those were at Daytona Beach in Florida. Canelo turned 3 on Jan 30th. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Hershey. He has not been cat tested yet but has been great with the small dog in his foster home. He is a friendly guy that just stares up at you and makes great eye contact. He loves people and is pretty calm. He is a very strong guy and we are working on his leash walking because he does tend to pull. Canelo seems like a really nice guy that is just gorgeous.

He retired from the top A level July 2nd after pulling a muscle. He has completely recovered now and has no sign of any pain or injury now. Beef Taco's entire litter was named for types of tacos: Fish, Soft, Hard etc. They were born June 12th of 2015 so just turned 3. Beef Taco's sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Flying Animals. He raced at 67lbs so is a smaller male. Beef Taco is a very friendly guy whose tail wags a lot. Very happy, outgoing and sweet. Taco has had mixed results with cats passing a couple of cat tests but was not able to resist a running cat in an adoptive home even with a couple of weeks of work. So Taco needs a home with no cats. Taco is usually quiet in his kennel and has lived in a townhouse. He has done great as an only dog too. He is good on leash and potties well on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. Taco has been in a foster home with a 15lb Italian greyhound and has done well with him after a short adjustment time so he may do fine with dogs that size and up.

Dreamer never raced, just wasn't interested in it. So she flunked out of training and the final step of her registration process, getting a registered name, wasn't completed. She was tattooed at 3 months and her Left ear is 69464 and Right ear tattoo is 106C. Her sister CTW Sonnys Dream was registered to race. Dreamer was born on Oct 13 of 2016 so she won't even turn 2 for some time. Dreamer was raised on the beautiful CTW farm in Texas, a farm that some of our volunteers have been to. Her sire is CTW Base Camp and her dam is CTW Legalese. Dreamer is a very kissy, snuggly girl once she warms up. She has been pretty overwhelmed with the move from the farm to the track adoption kennel so she could be sent to an adoption group. The first day, fast movements caused her to bolt and she was pretty worried but she was still snuggling with people as soon as she got into her foster home. She has not been cat tested but didn't have enough prey drive to chase a lure so we are pretty sure she will pass that test. She was not interested in a fast moving white dog at all. She was raised around kids at the farm and is in a foster home with small children.

His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Leona Brown. Knight is very outgoing, his goal in life is to give kisses to as many people as possible. He is still a silly pup and is very sweet.

Levi came in from the Ebro Race Track. He also raced at Sarasota, Sanford Orlando, Flagler and Naples Ft Myers. Levi wasn't a very good racer and was moved from track to track in hopes he would find a track that he could be competitive at. He ended up winning only 4 of his 48 races so eventually was retired. Levi raced at 73lbs and his sire is P's Gibbs and dam is Gable Charolais. He turned 3 on March 7th. Levi liked the kids in his foster home and was very good with them but growled a few times at a 10 year old girl in an adoptive home after being OK for about a month, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no kids. Levi passed his small dog test easily so could live with them, but has had mixed results with cats and has been too interested in some cats he has met but OK with others. He probably should have a home without cats, just to be safe.  Levi is a friendly, social, happy guy that loves being with his people. He follows his foster parents around and loved going to the Farmers Market and getting attention from all the people there.

PJ Bad Boy is definitely not the right name for this very sweet, good boy, but he was actually called Moses at the track. Moses came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced at Mardi Gras and Palm Beach. He is a smaller male that raced at just 68lbs. Moses had a pretty long career of 108 races and retired on June 22nd 2018. Moses did get up to the top A level at that track. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is Ucme Mini Me. Moses will turn 4 on October 5th. He is very a friendly, happy guy and his foster mom says he is a wonderful guy that is an easy foster. He is living in a foster home with kids and loves being around them. He is also living with cats in his foster home and is fine with them. The only reason he is listed as trainable is because he was more interested in a hairless cat he met but of course he didn't have any way to know that was even a cat.  Moses loves toys and is playful. He travels well. He is very well behaved and has good house manners. At night he sleeps next to his foster mom on a dog bed. He also crates well.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Watson Family of Huntersville NC 7/28/18

Groomsman just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is very young and won't turn 2 until October 5th. He didn't actually ever have an official race, so either was too slow or just not that interested in chasing during training. Groomsman is an extra large guy that is very tall so that may have made it more difficult for him to run especially in the turns. He is still a skinny pup that needs to fill out some and we would guess a good weight for him would be in the upper 80s to 90lbs. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Kiowa Bride. He is a grandson of the famous Flying Hydrogen that one of our volunteers owned after retirement. Groomsman is very good on leash and pretty calm and well behaved for such a young guy. He still has the submissive puppy attitude and will lower his head submissively when he comes up for petting. He is very friendly and seems to like people and kids. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily but we have noticed in foster care that he still has a little interest when they run around him so he needs careful supervision at first. He was a little nervous at first in a home environment but he gets more playful and silly after a few days. He just has the sweetest personality. Groomsman kennels very quietly, even when he is alone. He is very clean in his crate and will whine to let you know he has to go out. That is the only time he makes noise in the kennel though. He is a natural sitter which is a position that is not comfortable for most greyhounds. He sometimes will do a little sideways Elvis grin just on one side. This is the prettiest boy that seems like he will do well in just about any situation. We just love him!

Harry passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either.  He liked the children he met and tried to get them to play with him. He travels well and kennels well. He seems like a friendly, calm guy that should do well in just about any situation. Harry was brought in for a specific family and was adopted by them shortly after he arrived.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lydolph Family of Davidson NC 10/27/18

Nosey came in initially from the Birmingham Alabama Race Track. She was sent to the greyhound adoption group there because they transport thousands of retired greyhounds to adoption groups all over the country every year. She actually raced in Daytona Beach FL. She has 26 races listed and raced at 64lbs. She is young and won't turn 3 until March 10th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen, that one of our volunteers adopted after he retired. Her dam is AMF Set Aside. Nosey won a few races in her short career and wasn't bad. She is a sweet girl that is pretty calm for a younger girl. She is excellent on leash and travels very well. Nosey was a little interested in the cat at first but lost interest quickly and has been living with cats in her foster home. Nosey is good with dogs of all sizes and lived with a small Italian Greyhound. She does fuss about being in her kennel some when by herself, so may not do well as an apartment or townhouse dog. Nosey was in a home for a few months and they called her Winnie. They did not have a fenced yard so had to be leash walked to go potty. She didn't like going potty on leash and prefers to go in a fenced area where she can sniff around and find the perfect spot. She started getting very dramatic about being taken outside to potty and would scream and cry. Now that she has a fenced yard to go in and doesn't have to go for lots of long walks every day, she is enjoying walks again. No more drama and no more accidents. She loves having the other dogs around and seems to be a follower that enjoys the company of others. She is a very sweet loving girl that just must have a fenced yard. Because of her dramatic nature we think she would do better in a home without very young kids that might bother her or fall on her. She seems to like small kids just fine when she meets them and for short visits though.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Dalton Family of Anderson SC 7/28/18

Escapade had a long racing career of a 105 races (since each race is about 30 seconds that is just over 50 minutes of total actual racing time). She started out at Abilene KS, then went to Daytona Beach where she quickly went up to the top A level and won 25 races and even won 6 races in a row! Then she was moved to a tougher track with more competition in Wheeling WV. She did well there and even got up to the top AA level there but she wasn't able to win as many races as she had before, so was moved back to Daytona Beach. She retired January 27th of 2015 and went back to the farm to become a mom and hopefully pass on her racing speed and skill. She had two puppies in March of 2016 that have started racing now. Probably another litter or two that just aren't registered yet too. Escapade is a happy, bouncy, girl that has never met a stranger. She is very sweet and loving, travels well and has personality plus. She raced at 60lbs and turned 7 on March 8th. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is Lil Kaci. Escaped passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. She has been good with the children she has met and seems to really like them.

Nothing seems to bother her. Dorothy wants to be with people and is content to just lay at your feet. She doesn't have much white on her face and definitely doesn't look her age or even act her age. Dorothy was born on Feb 7th of 2003 and is a daughter of the famous Craigie Whistler. She is a super sweet, girl that has a lot of personality and a lot of love to give a lucky family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Price Family of Myrtle Beach SC 3/29/15

Toni is a pup that came straight from the farm and never went to the race track. She just turned one on October 8th so is still very young. She is small and weighed 54lbs at her vet check. She never raced because of an injury on the farm. Another dog attacked her and removed most of the skin between her tail and hipbones in September. The wound was too large to stitch so had to heal up on its own slowly. The injury is mainly cosmetic and doesn't affect her ability to run or play. She will just have a large scar. Toni couldn't go off to race training with a big open wound so her owners held onto her for a couple of months to get her to the point that she could be transported to us from Kansas in November of 2014. Toni never completed the registration process and never got a racing name. She has been called Toni since a pup though. Her sire is the very famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Toni Works. Toni passed her cat and small dog tests and has been living in a foster home with an Italian Greyhound. She is a very good jumper and has been known to clear fences so needs a home with a 6 foot fence. Toni is calm in the house but loves doing laps and playing outside every time she goes outside to potty so she really needs a fenced yard to play in. She is a natural sitter. She crates well and is mostly quiet except at meal times when she whines some. Toni is not a confident girl and tends to be timid and jumpy. There is construction going on at her foster home and the noise of that scares her. She will take awhile to warm up to a new situation but once she warms up she is a friendly, silly, happy girl. She is likely to be pretty nervous at first when she is adopted and goes to a new home. She loves people and approaches most people wagging indoors, but sometimes outside she still is a bit timid and runs around just out of reach for a few moments until she gets her courage up to approach.

UPDATE 1/15/15: Toni went to our vet to have her spay and we had our vet do some reconstructive surgery on Toni's back to make it look better while she had her under. The reconstructive surgery was not successful. The good skin would not attach to the scar tissue and eventually sloughed off leaving another big open wound. So that meant more healing time for Toni.

UPDATE 3/4/15: Toni is finally nearly healed up and just about ready for adoption! Through her treatment Toni has been happy and acts like nothing is wrong. She continues her daily runs in the yard and doesn't even flinch when we put medicine on her wound. We really love this sweet girl!

Toni healed up completely although she always had a big scar. She was adopted 3/29/15 and renamed Princess Jasmine. She had her own little girl to love. Her family says she was the most wonderful gentle girl. She passed away suddenly in 2018 after a brief illness that resulted in a seizure that she couldn't be revived from. Sweet girl that left us way too young. RIP Princess Jasmine.

Rarefeat is an extra large, tall, brindle male that raced at 83lbs. He is such a handsome well behaved guy! His birthday is May 5th and he will turn 4 then. He is an easy going guy that is very friendly and calm. Just walking up to people and wagging his tail politely and leaning in for love. We think he has potential as a great therapy dog. He is the grandson of a brood mom we adopted out named Greys Fiddle De and is very sweet like his mom. His father is the famous Stan's Boy Flyer. He goes potty on leash so would do fine in a home without a fenced yard like an apartment or townhouse. He is also very quiet which makes him a good candidate for apartment living. This is a sweet, easy guy because of his friendly, laid back personality. He is going to be a great dog for some lucky family. His foster family says he is very well behaved. He is cat friendly and does well with dogs of all sizes and is fostered with some tiny dogs. He is very gentle with children and seem to like them. If you like big dogs this is your guy! He is a gentle giant.

Rarefeat was adopted 2/19/12 and his name was changed to Rafe. Rafe blessed his family with his wonderful personality and love from 2012 until late December, 2017. Rafe loved swimming in the ocean, slept on many beds in many sunbeams, and just generally blessed everyone with his presence and affection. Rafe developed Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in one of his legs which ultimately led to him crossing the rainbow bridge. He will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed. Rafe "Rare Feat" was truly one of a kind.

Free Bee just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida. She is a pretty tall girl for just 60lbs. She raced 142 races and was pretty good, racing at Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA and Southland in Arkansas and Naples Ft Myers in Florida before moving to Orange Park. She was mostly a B level racer but did compete in a top level stakes race. Although she turned 4 on April 9th, Free Bee still has a cute puppy look to her. She is VERY outgoing and gives hugs and just loves people. She loves playing with other dogs and especially loves balls that squeak and toys that squeak. She can be energetic for short spurts but calms down really well in the house and just wants to put her head in your lap and be close. Free Bee's sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Boc's Mc Raisen. She has been in a foster home with a calm older yorkie and has been fine with him. She loves playing with all the other greyhounds at a playgroup. We were told that she is a pretty confident girl and can be a little bossy at times. She seems like she is going to be a fun girl for a family that wants a playful, silly, girl. She does potty well on leash and is leash walked at her foster home but she would probably do best with a fenced yard where she can chase balls and run and play since she enjoys that so much. Although she has been living with cats at her foster home they are having to keep her away from them because she is too interested in the to be comfortable with so she needs a home with no cats. Her foster home says she is the most loving dog they have had, even more loving than their personal greyhound. She is super sweet!

Bee was only in her adoptive home for less than a year and died suddenly in June of 2018. The vet thinks she may have had a blood clot that went to her brain or heart. RIP Bee!

Hit is a happy, waggy girl that is calm and well behaved. She loves kids and raced in a kennel that had small kids in it frequently and was great with them. She raced at 60lbs. Hit celebrated her 4th birthday on March 6th. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry! Hit is a loving little girl that seems like she will make a great pet because of her calm, easy going personality. She passed her cat test at the track but has been a little interested in some of the cats she has seen since. She seems to respond well to correction so we think she is trainable and will be glad to evaluate her with your specific cats. She is good with small and large dogs so should be fine in a home with other dogs. Hit did have a broken hock October 9th of 2010 that ended her racing career. She has completely healed since then but may always have a slight limp. She stilll loves to run and play and doesn't let the old break slow her down a bit. This cutie can still turn on the greyhound speed when she wants to. This is a wonderful little girl that is very well behaved and is going to be a wonderful loving pet for some very lucky family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Burnside Family of Martinez GA 7/4/18

Sippin is a beautiful 66lb red girl that just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. She raced 170 races so had a long career. She also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler, Mardi Gras and Dubuque tracks, so traveled around quite a bit. She mainly raced at the lower D levels but did get up to the top A level briefly during her career. Her trainer says she is a sweet girl that keeps her crate clean and is very quiet. Sippin is very reserved at first with strangers but does warm up with time. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Rain On Me. She turned 4 on January 16th. Sippin still needs tested with cats and small dogs. As expected, Sippin was very overwhelmed by the move from the track kennel into a foster home. The first day it took her foster family 5 hours to catch her and get her back in the house after a potty break in their fenced yard. Sippin just was too afraid to come back inside or to let people she didn't know close enough to her to catch her. So she will need to be leash walked until she gets to know her new family. She is just timid and will need time and patience. She was friendly and happy at the track with the trainers she knew and loved. It may take a few weeks or even a few months for her to warm up to a new family and new environment. She is starting to slowly warm up and follows her foster family from room to room but stays just out of reach most of the time. She is very quiet and never makes a peep. Sippin has done really well on walks in the neighborhood with other greyhounds and seems to gain confidence from being with a more confident greyhound. She would love to have a greyhound brother or sister and a safely fenced yard in her new home. Sippin just glanced at the cats she saw in the vet's office and didn't even try to go near them so we think she would be OK to live with cats and small dogs.

Robbie came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 71 races there and did get up to the top A level briefly. His last race was Feb 5th. Robbie raced at 77lbs and will turn 3 on July 22nd. He is the son of WW All Star Owen that we adopted out recently and his dam is Kentucky Ashley. Robbie passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or smaller dogs. He is a very handsome white boy with brindle spots. Robbie is a pretty confident guy that thought he was the boss of the other boys he was turned out with at the track. He got along well with all but one that didn't see eye to eye with Robbie and they had to be watched closely. Robbie has been doing fine with the other males in his foster home and hasn't tried to be bossy with any of them. He backed right off when a female got after him for sniffing her too much during transport and was a complete gentleman. Robbie has been the perfect gentleman since he arrived and is very well behaved in his foster home and has followed all the rules. He did pull hard on the leash wanting to check everything out at first, but his foster mom worked with him on that and reports that he is excellent on leash now. Robbie only had one accident in his foster home so picked up on potty training exceptionally fast. His foster mom says he is a wonderful boy that is a joy to have around. He isn't really that food motivated and will lay there and just look at his food bowl sometimes and wait to eat until he is ready. He has really liked the children he has met. Robbie has the cutest puppy face and is so sweet!

She raced at Valley Race Track in Texas and Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando Tracks in Florida. She wasn't a good racer and only won one race that we could find. She did place just enough at the lowest level to keep racing for awhile, but gradually spent more and more time at the back of the pack, so was finally retired. She passed her cat test but we listed her as "trainable" because she was excited to see the cat at first. She was just curious though and is excited to check everything new out. She quickly lost interest. She is a happy, friendly girl with a tail that wags all the time. Sometimes she wags so hard that the tail nearly wags her. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Atascocita Vita. Her trainer says she is a very outgoing girl bouncy, fun girl that tends to be a bit more energetic than most. Really a sweet girl that likes everyone she meets so far.

Journey just came in from the Sanford Orlando Track. He is an extra large male racing at 88lbs. He raced 43 races and started out racing at Southland in Arkansas. He only raced a few races there and was moved to Sanford Orlando for the rest of his career. He got up to the top A level briefly. He injured his hock on January 6th and hasn't raced since then. He was healed up and rehabbed at the track in hopes he could return to racing, but after he ran a couple of practice runs his trainer decided to retire him rather than risk him re-injuring the hock. Journey is a gentle giant of a dog. He has no idea he is the biggest dog in the kennel and is actually sensitive and a bit timid. He may need some time to warm up to a new family. Journey was overwhelmed when he got into foster care. He still wagged his tail a little and approached cautiously if called. He would shy away from fast movements and loud noises. Journey caught onto the steps to go outside pretty fast after being afraid to try them the first time. He passed his cat test so should be able to live with cats or small dogs. He is a beautiful black male that will turn 3 August 21st. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Prickly Pooch. He seems like a timid sensitive boy that will warm up pretty fast to his new home and family. He is quiet in his kennel and eats well even when stressed. He hasn't skipped a meal and seems to be adjusting well to his new food.

Marvin is coming in for one of our volunteers that met him on a trip to the track and has been waiting on him to retire. So he is not available for adoption. Marvin is rare blue/grey male. He raced at 77lbs and raced 118 races. He was a fantastic racer racing at Wheeling Downs, one of the top tracks. He raced at the top A and AA levels there. Once he started slowing down a bit he was moved to Sanford Orlando to finish out his career and has just retired from there. He turned 4 on Jan 9th. Marvin's sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is Barts Magpie. He is a sweet boy that is friendly with people and other dogs. He gets along well with all the other dogs at the kennel and never causes any trouble. A really good boy. Marvin passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He has done fantastic since he arrived. We found that he loves to play with toys and he spends a lot of time playing in the yard with the kids in his new family. He is a pretty submissive boy that tries hard to please and tries not to do anything wrong.

Tea just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. She also raced at Derby Lane in St Pete. She briefly got up to the top A level, but mostly raced at the lower levels. Tea will turn 3 on July 19th. She raced at 62lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale and her dam is All Access Pass. Tea passed her cat test so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. According to her trainer, Tea is a bouncy, happy girl that is a little more active than the average greyhound. She has been pretty quiet and overwhelmed since she arrived so far. She was pretty timid with people and was uncomfortable with strange dogs sniffing her. By the end of the first day she was standing and letting us pet her rather than shying away, so we think she will warm up pretty fast. She is eating well and slept through the entire first night without a peep. Her trainer says she was a barker at feeding time and wasn't shy about telling her that she needed to be fed first. Her trainer also told us that she was an energetic happy fun girl at the kennel and we are already seeing that after just a few days.

Mister Nino raced at the Mobile Alabama Track briefly in September of 2006. He only has 6 races listed and only won one of those. He may have raced some at Birmingham as well because their races weren't always reported at that time. We got Mister Nino in December of 2007 from his race owners Kevin Fish and Heather Powers. Mister Nino was a very sweet guy that passed his cat test with just a little initial interest. He was born on 12/28/04 so turned 3 right after he arrived. His sire was the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Tycam Amstel. A previous adopter, Judy White, wanted to foster him with the idea of adopting him if he got along with her cat and other greyhound. He did great with them so she decided to keep him. Mister Nino lived a long happy life with her and passed away peacefully at 14.5 years old in May of 2018.

Cool just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She had a long career of 126 races and was pretty good even competing in a Stakes Race. She raced at Tri State and Wheeling Downs in WV. 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.

Greer just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. We aren't sure why she never raced but most of the rest of her litter did. All the girls in the litter were very good racing at the top levels and competing in Stakes races. Most of them went on to become Moms like Greer. Greer has a total of 11 puppies that have been registered to race so far but she could have another younger litter or two that has yet to be registered. She had one litter in 2014 that have all already been retired from racing. Greer had another litter in 2016 and most of those are racing right now. Greer will turn 7 on October 23rd. Since she never actually raced she doesn't have a racing weight but we would guess her to be around 60lbs. Her sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Pawn Of Ruckus. Greer is timid at first and seems pretty overwhelmed by all the changes in her life. She is very calm and quiet and likes the safety of her crate so far. She seems like a very laid back girl but may just need time to get more comfortable before she gets confident enough to show her personality. She isn't terribly shy or scared of people, she is just unsure. Greer passed her cat and small dog tests so should do fine in a home with either one. More as we get to know her.

Judith just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She had a long career as a racer with 151 races. She started out at Wheeling in WV and then was moved to Tri-State, also in WV. She raced the top A and AA levels most of her career at Tri State and was quite the star winning a lot of races. When she retired from racing in December of 2013 she went back to the farm to be a mom. Judith had one litter of 7 puppies in May of 2015. She did not pass on her talent to her kids and that litter has already retired from racing and some never raced at all. Judith may have had other litters that haven't been registered yet, since then. Judith is a fuzzy black female that still has her thick farm coat from spending a lot of time outside. It is sun bleached so she will look chocolate brown until it all sheds out and then will be glossy black with a normal short greyhound coat. Judith raced at 62lbs. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Shelbourne Jess*. She turned 9 on January 1st and she raced at 62lbs. Judith is a friendly, happy girl that took her trip from the farm to her foster home in stride. She traveled well and just got into the vehicle and laid down. She wasn't nervous walking on shiny floors or going up and down stairs. She seems pretty easy going and not much stresses her. She passed her cat and small dog tests and likes people. She got along well with the other females on the trip. More as we get to know her.

Val just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is named Valentine because he was born on Valentines day of 2011. He is listed as white and brindle but looks more white and bluish brown to us. We can't see any stripes in the spots that are supposed to be brindle. He is mostly white though. He is an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is CTW Hard Hannah. Val started racing at Tri State Race Track in West Virginia but was quickly moved to Birmingham. He was a good racer there, getting up to the top A level. He raced an amazing 265 which is right up there with the most races of the dogs we have placed. He gradually started slowing down and finally was retired on May 21st, 2016. Val was curious about the small dog he met, but seems like he will be fine fine with them. He still needs testing with cats and kids. He seems like a very friendly, confident guy. He does have some flea dermatitis so his coat is a little rough right now but that is being treated and it will grow back in very nicely. Val is very friendly and loving and will stand with his head in your lap wanting to be petted. He complained very loudly about being kenneled, so will not be a good apartment dog. He is very calm and laid back but he can be bit pushy and stubborn when it comes to doing what he wants to do - like helping you drive. He will need someone that will give him leadership and direction and continue teaching him the rules that he is learning in his foster home. He is very low energy and very loving.

Val was adopted in June of 2016 and was called Bodie by his family. Bodie passed away in May of 2018 after a 6 month battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). He will be missed by his family and everyone that met this sweet goofy guy.

Sky Rose is an 8 year old brindle female that has been in a home for years. She only raced a short time and was originally adopted in 2008. Her owner was forced to return her because she is in the hospital battling cancer. Sky Rose has been a great companion and is a wonderful girl and this is very hard for her owner. Sky Rose is a little timid at first but is warming up quickly to her foster family. Even though she is usually a bit shier with men, she is following her foster dad around already. Her sire is Yankee Patriot and her dam is Miss Van Gogh. She turned 8 on December 16th and raced at 60lbs. She weighed in at 62 at the vets. She was checked out by our vet and got everything updated. Sky Rose got a fresh dental, had a few bad teeth pulled and has been cleared for adoption. This is a sweet, girl that has already lived in a home so is home acclimated and has good house manners. She has lived with cats and the cat in her last home curled up and slept with her. She is also great with small dogs and kids. Because she is over 8 years old Sky Rose qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200. Be sure to click on her other photos to see some of her when she first retired and was much younger.

Sky Rose was adopted by the Grover family of Columbia on 5/24/14 and lived a wonderful life with them for 4 more years until May of 2018 when she passed away peacefully in her sleep at nearly 12 years old. Her family will miss her crowding them out of bed at night and following them into the bathroom; nuzzling up to their chest and holding her paw over arms. She was their first greyhound and will be missed.

The cat slapped her and she backed off and wasn't interested in going back. She also has been fine with the small dogs she has met. A really sweet girl.

He is happy and his tail wags all the time. He was a little curious about the cat at first but after she swatted him once he is more cautious around her. He tries to get her to play but is polite when she says no. Buckwheat has the sweetest personality and is so shiny and beautiful. He already knows how to fetch a ball too! He also passed his cat and small dog tests so could live with either. He seems to like kids too. This is an all around great guy.

His last race was January 18th and he has been waiting in the kennel since then. Buzz just turned 2 on April 17th. He is a big stocky guy that raced at 80lbs. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is HS Texoma. Buzz was too excited around cats, so needs a home without them. He was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound, so may be OK to live with smaller dogs. Buzz is a friendly, happy guy that loves people and will be very devoted. He likes playing in the yard and would love to have a fenced yard of his own. He is very food motivated, so would be perfect for someone that wanted to train tricks, agility or do obedience with a dog. He doesn't get up on the furniture so far. Buzz would like a home with another large dog in it because he doesn't like to be left totally alone. He is doing really well in a home with several other greyhounds, but didn't do well when left totally alone in a home with no other dogs. Buzz loves to play with toys and has learned how to fetch already. He is a very smart guy that will be a lot of fun for a lucky family.

Jojo just arrived from the CTW Greyhound Farm in Texas by way of the Birmingham Race Track. Jojo arrived with her sister Coco. Neither one of them actually raced. They failed out of race training because they would come out of the box and go straight to the nearest person for love instead of chasing the lure. Just no prey drive or chase drive at all. They are both tattooed: Left ear 68886 and right ears are 66a and 66b. So they started the registration process but never completed it to get a registered racing name. One of their sisters, CTW Sugarfoot did complete the registration process, so we have all of Coco and Jojo's info on the database through her. We don't have a weight on the girls but their sister is racing at 60lbs, so chances are that they are a similar size. Their sire is Trent Lee and their dam is CTW Starlet. They will turn 2 on June 11th. With not even enough prey drive to chase a lure, both should be fine living with cats, small dogs and other small critters. There are children on the farm they were raised on that help take care of the dogs so they should be very used to being around kids too. More as we get to know these girls.

Xander is a friendly, happy brindle guy that raced at 70lbs. He initially came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers and Valley. He only raced 38 races but did win enough to get up to the top A level, so was pretty good. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is CTU Side Party. Xander's ears stay straight up a lot and one flips over his head sometimes, which just makes him stand out in a crowd and is very cute. He turned 3 on June 7th. Xander passed his cat test with just a little initial interest at first. After a thorough sniffing, he decided that there were more interesting things to sniff than the cat and totally lost interest. He also did fine with the small dog he met. Xander is a very confident guy that can be a bit pushy, so he needs a dog experienced home with a confident owner. He is a very happy guy that is curious about everything and not a bit shy. Xander has already been in a home for awhile. He crates when told, sleeps quietly alone all night and gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home. He corrects easily with an ACK sound if he does anything he should not do. He is very smart and seems to learn quickly. We have him marked no kids because he has shown some grumpiness over his space when laying down.
