Mickey is a beautiful boy who is very happy and outgoing and has the cutest ears! He is also very sweet and will lay his head in your lap to have his ears and neck rubbed. Mickey has a goofy, fun personality and would make someone a wonderful companion. He is smart, eager to please, and listens well and has learned to sit on command. Mickey enjoys running around and playing in the yard with the other dogs in his foster home. However, he would also do well as an only dog since he is not dependent on the other greyhounds. He gets along wonderfully with other greyhounds and is very respectful of other dogs. Mickey does well with smaller dogs and is getting better with cats every day, although he is still very curious about them. He walks well on leash, although he gets a bit excited and is very curious in new situations. Mickey crates well although it may take him a little time to settle down if he is crated away from the family at night. Mickey is a graduate of our TriCounty Tech Partnership Program where the staff and students at TriCounty Tech love this beautiful boy and became very attached to him.

This handsome black boy with gold eyes is available for adoption. Bear only has 5 races listed and finished at the back of the pack in all of them. He raced at Palm Beach and Naples Ft Myers before his owners decided to retire him. He looks brown in the pictures because he was in a run with access to the outside. He spent so much time outside that his coat got very sunbleached. He is a black dog though. His sire is Fine Silver and his dam is JR's Prelude who we also placed. Bear raced at 67lbs so is a smaller guy. DOB 7/17/2007. Update after adoption: Bear can be seen at many of the Charlotte area adoption events helping encourage greyhound adoption. He loves to travel with his dad and is busy keeping a couple of puppies in line.

Adrenaline
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Charleston, SC (Newman)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Newman, 1.30.10

Adrenaline is a wonderful boy. He grins as you can see in his photo. He snuggles and cuddles and is a real love bug. He is a little shy about loud noises and quick movements and seems more comfortable around women than men, but warms up quickly with a little patience. He is one of the few greyhounds I have ever met who loves to play fetch-bringing his squeaky toy back to you again and again. He hasn't done a single naughty thing in the house-no chewing-no accidents-no counter surfing-you would think he lived in a home all his life! And his greatest joy in life is snuggling up with his human. He loves the company of the other dogs-but would likely be fine as a single dog so he could have all your attention. Adrenaline does have a fractured metatarsal bone in his ankle that will be a chronic issue for him after hard exercise or running. He will need joint supplements and some type of pain management available the rest of his life. Right now he is on crate rest to stabilize that injury. Once he is done he should only be sore after really hard play and will always be able to join you on walks. He is a wonderful sweet boy just waiting for the perfect family.His Pedigree

Update after adoption: His foster family decided to keep him and he is now living with his actual mother.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Clarke, Fountain Inn SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Clark, 1.23.10

Tequila is a sweet, happy, playful, older girl that was discovered wandering loose, starving and in horrible condition. She had been in an adoptive home for years but wasn't cared for and looked like she had even been attacked by another dog. This was one of the worst neglect cases we have seen. Tequila still looks pretty rough now and doesn't have much hair due to a skin condition that will require some baths a couple of times a week for awhile. We have made some progress already and soon Tequila will be back to her former beauty with some TLC. Tequila has great house manners and has fit into her foster home like she has always been there and enjoys playing with their greyhound. She is very friendly and is good with other dogs, cats and kids. Tequila is a good girl and is looking for a family that will love and appreciate her. She should be a wonderful easy addition to just about any family. Her sire is Flying Train and her dam is Marvelous Missy. She only has 2 races listed at the now closed Plainfield track. She was born on June 10th, 2000. Congratulations to her foster family that decided they couldn't let this one go!

Update after adoption: Tequila has become a meet and greet dog for Greyhound Crossroads! She attends events encouraging people to adopt greyhounds. She lives in the country and loves taking walks with her dad. She has completely gotten over her skin condition and has a healthy full coat now with only a few scars to remind her of her past. She crossed the bridge on 10/11/13.

Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA (Kaage)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Odom, 1.6.10

Ron, Gem, and CJ are all housemates coming back to start over because of Economy returns. Ron is the sweetest, most affectionate of the three and also the funniest. He loves to lay down with his head on your lap, and we will nudge for more pets and love. He is comfortable being the unassertive 'bottom dog' of the three pack members. He loves to "go crazy" by himself in the back yard, running in random patterns around the back yard at full speed, then will stop, crouch down, scratch up some dirt, and take off again. Ron loves the young son in his home and has always done great with him from birth. He's a dog that is most comfortable with his routine, loves people and loves to get attention from humans. He also is a great leash walker. His greatest fear is thunder and will do best in a place where he can get lots of love and patience. Ron raced 31 races at JCKC. He is a smaller guy racing at 67lbs. His sire is Neiland and his dam is Husker Chicago.

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

CJ
Age:
10
Color/Gender:
Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by Aguilar, 1-1-2010

CJ raced at Jefferson County Kennel Club at 77lbs until retiring in 2005 at 3 years old. He was in one home for a few years then was an economy return and was adopted a second time by the Aguilar family in 2010 when he was 7 years old. CJ is an unusual light fawn color that is nearly white. He was a big, sweet, affectionate boy with a great, laid back personality and just loved people in general. He loved for anyone to scratch his big head and back, and even seemed to smile. His favorite part of the day is taking an evening walk. When he heared the leash rattle, he came running and started jumping up and down. He was the lead dog in the pack, but he was a gentle leader who rarely asserted himself. CJ also enjoyed playing with his stuffy toys, but only when one of his people played with him. He was a well-balanced and well-behaved boy who was a great family member. He was great with kids and small dogs but chasing cats was something he enjoyed just a little too much.

Colby Joe crossed the bridge on Feb 25th 2013 suddenly of unknown causes
