Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Bowden)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gibbs Family 3/2/12

Georgia is an 8 year old brindle girl with black ears and tail. Her birthday is July 10th. She is friendly, waggy and very loving with her family but can be a little timid out in public and with people she has never met.  She is quiet, well-behaved, clean in the house, and crates willingly with 'let's go to bed'. Georgia loves to play with toys and is great on stairs. So far she hasn't tried to get up on the furniture and just comes over and puts her head in your lap and lays on dog beds near you. Georgia was living in a home with 4 little boys and was great with the older ones but was not comfortable with the 3 year old or a baby. She needs a home with well behaved older kids or no children. She gets along well with other dogs small and large and has lived with a cat in her foster home and a puppy. Georgia seems like she would do well with other animals or as an only dog. She is healthy and has been vetted and is ready to go home. Her foster home says they can't say enough good things about her. The older dogs that have already been in a home before are the easiest to foster and often the hardest to let go. Because of her senior status Georgia qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gibbs Family 3/2/12

Inez just arrived from the track in Florida. She is a small girl that raced at 56lbs. She has the same mother as one of the other sweet girls we have adopted out and we bet that she will be just as sweet as her half sister. She is 4 years old and was born on Oct 17, 2007. She passed her cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. She is curious about small animals at first meeting but just needs some supervision and a sniff and seems to lose interest in them quickly. She is a friendly, happy girl that doesn't seem to know a stranger. A cute lighter red girl with some dark fur on her face. She likes to play with other dogs and will pounce up to them and bounce around trying to get them to play with her. Seems like she is going to be a very fun girl. She has been a little loud when left alone in a crate so probably wouldn't be a good dog for apartment or townhouse living.

Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Lloyd Family of Greenville 2/22/12

Breezy is a very young girl that wasn't fast enough for the race track or just not that interested in chasing. She will turn 2 on April 4th. Her sister Angel also retired with her. Breezy has been a little timid and overwhelmed with all the changes in her life but seems like she will warm up quickly. She seems like the more active of the two girls and stays busy checking everything out. She has the cutest way of greeting people with a happy wag and a roo roo roo when you come to the gate to get her. Her sister Angel stands back a bit more. Breezy needs a little work on leash because she is nervously checking things out. It was hard to get her to stand still for photos. She is such a gorgeous girl with lots of eyeliner and such a happy personality that is easy to see even though she is still nervous. She was perfectly fine with the small white dog in her foster home so should be fine with other small dogs.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Pruitt in Anderson
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Callahan Family of Central 2/19/12

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.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Lackey in Spartanburg, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lindenfeld Family of Westminster 11/2/12

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!

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Doby (Charlotte)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kerr family of Salisbury NC 2/11/12

Iggy is a smaller 69lb, red brindle male that is very timid at first. He is a littermate to two of our other dogs BT Ember and BT Fire that have been adopted and are great pets. Iggy's birthday is Jan 28th, 2008 so he is 3.5 years old. His sire is the famous Flying Penske! He loves to watch TV and has actually laid on his foster dad's lap and napped while watching TV - see his photos. He is living with quite a few other dogs including a couple of puppies in his foster home and seems to get along very well with others. Ignite crates quietly and likes to be in his crate. Although he can be shy out in public he warmed up in his foster home after just a couple of days and now is friendly and happy and a big snuggler. Iggy is living with cats and small dogs in his foster home so should be fine living with either. He seems to prefer women over men but did warm up to his foster dad. He could go to a home with only a man and would be fine since he would be forced to interact with him. In a family situation with a woman and a man we have noticed that he prefers the woman and takes a longer to warm up to a man. Iggy will be a great devoted pet if he just is given a little time to warm up. Because of Iggy's shyness we listed him as older children only, this is something we do with many shy dogs. We think that small, loud children would scare him and would just be a little too much for him to handle on a daily basis. We don't think he would ever intentionally harm a child in any way. He would probably be OK with visiting children although he may choose to stay in another room and not interact much.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Smith family of Charlotte, NC 2/11/12

Jimbo is a gorgeous fawn male that just arrived. His 3rd birthday was November 15th and he raced at 70lbs. His sire is the famous Dodgem By Design which makes him a half brother to some of our other available dogs. He passed his tests with cats and small dogs without a problem. He did get interested in one cat although he was totally uninterested in chasing any other cats he has met so we changed him from safe with all to trainable. He has been living with cats and small dogs in his foster home with no problem. Jimbo is a friendly, happy guy that was a favorite at his racing kennel and a really good boy. He has been great in his foster home as well and has quickly settled in to life as a pet. His foster home really likes him and thinks he will be a great easy addition for some lucky home. What a cute face! This one won't last very long.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Groves Family of Appling, GA 2/6/12

Courageous is a beautiful, sweet girl that is very friendly. She is laid back and well behaved. She is just retiring from her life as a mom and had one litter of pups more than a year ago. She was a fantastic mom and chose to spend an entire year raising her pups. They finally had to separate them when the pups went off to race training and she missed them so much. She travels well and just laid down in the car on the trip up from Florida most of the way. She did come up every now and then to check in and get petted. She did fine with two smaller dogs she has met so far so seems like she will be OK with them. She needs to be cat tested. Courageous is a grinner and will do the famous greyhound smile for you when she is happy. There was a lake on the farm where she has lived and she reportedly loves water and likes to swim. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Green Family of Augusta, GA 1/29/12

Blackjack is a sweet, friendly, happy boy that will celebrate his 4th birthday on March 19th. He raced at 75lbs. Blackjack passed his cat and small dog test so should be fine living with either. He has been living with a small white dog in foster care with no problem. He is home acclimated and has great house manners already. Blackjack has a glossy black coat and is SO beautiful. We need to get some newer photos of him because the ones we have are from when he first arrived and didn't have a shiny coat and was a little too thin still. Blackjack is quiet in his crate and potties well on leash and was actually fostered for awhile in a townhouse so would be a great apartment dog. He gets along well with other dogs but seems like he would also be fine as an only dog. He isn't that interested in playing with toys but has a ball he likes. He will roll over, show his belly and wave his paws at you to get a belly rub. Blackjack's only negative is that he has been a little grouchy about his space occasionally when laying down. Just a growl, never a bite. It isn't something that happens often and has improved and only happened once in the last 4 or 5 months. We think he probably should be placed only with older children that will understand not to bother him when he is asleep or laying down though.

Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by Chris in Savannah 1/17/2012

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

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hardin family of Mauldin 1/15/12

Evie just arrived. She raced at 59lbs and turned 2 on Oct 29th. She is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design. Evie was retired due to a minor injury to her front wrist. This is nothing that even causes a limp at a walk but did effect her speed as a racer. Our vet said she will be fine to run around and play as a pet and it won't limit her in any way and is not going to be noticeable. Evie is friendly and well behaved and traveled well on her way up from the track in Florida. She is living in a foster home with several very tiny dogs and has been great with them so could go to a home with small dogs. Evie settled right into foster care and was so relaxed that she was on her back sleeping with all her legs in the air - we call that a roach and it is a sign of a happy relaxed dog. Her foster home says that she is one of those dogs that makes you feel good because she always wags happily if you even make eye contact with her. Evie is a very happy girl that loves everyone. She passed her cat test with only a little interest when the cats ran or jumped. The rest of the time she was perfectly fine with them. She seems very trainable and mainly just will need supervision with cats at first.

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.

Beauty sure has the right name. She is just gorgeous with her rich, red brindle coloring. She is a 4 year old, brindle female that is a new arrival from a track in Florida. Her DOB is October 29 2007 and she raced 61lbs. Beauty has the short and stocky greyhound build. She is very short and can just walk right under larger males. She passed her cat and small dog tests at the track and has been great with the small dog in her foster home. Beauty was just a little timid when she first arrived but has gotten silly and playful since arriving and now seems to be a pretty confident girl. She crates quietly and potties quickly on leash so may be OK for apartment living and would be OK living in a home without a fenced yard. Beauty has a friendly happy attitude and is a great little girl!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Williams Family of Greenwood SC 1/12/12

Tanner is a beautiful guy. He is another economic return. He and 4 other greyhounds are being returned because their family was moving and could not take them with them. Tanner gets along well with other dogs and lived in a home with many other dogs including a more dominant male so should be fine with males or females. He is cat and small dog tolerant too. He loved the 9 month old grandchild that was a frequent visitor in his previous home should be fine living in a home with children. His foster mom thinks he would really enjoy a home with children to play with. Besides being so handsome, Tanner has a wonderful personality and was described as "everyone's friend". This is a happy, outgoing guy that greets everyone like they are a long lost friend. Because he lived in a house before he has house manners already and is home acclimated so should be an easy addition to just about any home.

Dominick is a very small, black male that raced at 62lbs but weighed in at the vets at just 56lbs. He is young and turned 2 on September 11th. Dominick is a son of the famous Dodgem By Design so is a half brother to quite a few of the dogs we have placed and some of our available dogs. He passed his cat and small dog tests so can live with either. Dominick was a just a little timid at first but he got over that right away and their is nothing timid about him now. He loves his foster family and even goes right up to strangers for love at our meet and greets. We have to watch him that he doesn't jump on people in his excitement to greet them. He loves going for rides. Dominick is a very loving, sweet guy with exceptional house manners. He doesn't have accidents in his foster home and never has. He gets along well with the other male and female dogs in his foster home. He is a master of the sad doggy eyes as you can see from his pictures but he is not a sad dog. He is really a happy, fun loving guy. Since he has been in foster care he has gotten the shiniest, beautiful black coat and is just a gorgeous guy with those flashy white socks, the white chest and the white blaze on his nose. Dominick can be a bit vocal when left alone so wouldn't be the best dog for apartment or townhouse living.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Hayes (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Schieffelin Family of Alpharetta, GA 1/1/12

McCoy was a dark brindle male that came from the Orlando race track. He raced at 69lbs.  McCoy was born on July 1st 2008. He passed his cat and small dog test and was great with the small white dog he is living with in his foster home and the animals at the vet clinic he was boarded at. He was a friendly boy that wags his tail a lot but he wasn't a confident guy at all. He loved people and wanted to interact but circled around play bowing and trying to get their attention at a bit of a distance at first. Once he warmed up he would play and get quite silly. He had the most gentle loving eyes and cute puppy face. McCoy arrived with a tail injury. We tried to get it to heal up for a month but he wags so hard that he kept injuring it again. We ended up having to amputate his tail. It is pretty common to see greyhounds with no tail and is the mark of a very happy waggy dog. McCoy was adopted 1/1/12 but sadly passed away due to bone cancer shortly after adoption near his 4th birthday.
