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!!

Pet/Kennel Name:
Blade
Age:
2.5
Color/Gender:
Red Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
No
Fostered by (location):
Greenwood, SC (Owens)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Lindenfeld of Westminster 8/30/13

Blade is an extra large male that raced at 87lbs and weighed in at 99lbs at the vets when he was returned to us. We usually try to keep greyhounds within 5lbs of their racing weight so he has been on a diet but is an extra large greyhound. Blade's sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen who is owned by one of our volunteers. His dam is Slatex Alice. Blade retired from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Nov of 2012 and raced before that at Gulf and Bluffs Run tracks so is a bit of a traveler. He has 49 races listed but looks like he was just too big to be a successful racer because it doesn't look like he won even one race. He did place in some though. Blade has been living in a home since he retired and has very good house manners. He does have a very high prey drive so needs a home without cats and small dogs. He just mistakes small furry critters for bunnies and wants to chase them. Blade seems like a calm, confident guy that adapts well to where ever he is. He is an easy going, calm guy and is very good on leash in spite of his extra large size. He potties on leash and is quiet in his crate so may do well as an apartment dog. Blade is protective of his space when laying down. Even though he has lived with kids before, we would prefer not to place him with young kids because of that. Blade can be very protective in his own home and will bark and growl at strangers. Outside his home he is a friendly, happy, sweet dog that loves everyone he meets and seeks out attention from complete strangers and happily allowed the vet and her staff to handle him.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Collins in Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Shirey from Grovetown GA 8/29/13

Dundee just arrived from the Orange Park track in Jacksonville. His sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is AMF Toyota Turbo. He raced at 77lbs and turned 3 on May 10th. Dundee has quite the story! He was an excellent racer that competed at the top level of racing there and even competed in special big money stakes races! His luck wasn't all good though, while laying next to the fence outside he got bit by a cottonmouth snake on his upper back leg. It caused him to lose most of the skin on the back of his leg. They weren't sure he could be saved because it was pretty bad by the time they noticed the snake bite. Dundee lived at the vet's for a long time and he surprised everyone by surviving. His last race was at the end of April and that was about the time of the snake bite. He has been recooperating since. His leg has healed over but does have a bad scar on it now. It doesn't affect his running and the vet said he could have even gone back to racing. His racing owner wouldn't hear of it and wanted to retire him because he had been lucky enough to survive. While we were in Florida to pick up dogs everyone at the track from the vet to trainers to adoption people were talking about their miracle dog Dundee. Everyone said he was the sweetest greyhound they had ever met and that he really had a special personality. We met him and agreed - he really was a happy, outgoing, guy with such a special personality so we asked if our group could take him. Dundee is very cat tolerant. He had been moved to the track adoption kennel and went into one of their foster homes. Their cat cornered him and he was so scared he wouldn't go near the cat again. He also has been around lots of kids in the adoption kennel and they said he really loves kids and follows them around. Most of the trip up he had his head resting on us trying to snuggle. Dundee is a super, sweet, loving, happy guy!

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Haynes Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Barton Family of Greenville 8/28/13

Voyager is a littermate to Tazzy and looks just like her. They have been together since they were born and even raced briefly at the same kennel. The girls won't be 2 until October 9th so are very young girls. We have them living apart now in separate foster homes and they are doing fine so we will place them separately. Their sire is Flupascrackerbox and their dam is Bills Are Due. Voyager has 12 races listed but only won one of them. She is a small girl that raced at 58lbs. Voyager is a sweet girl but is the more timid of the two girls. She did give us kisses on the trip back from the track though so isn't really shy with people just more overwhelmed by all the new things around her. Her trainer said that when she first arrived at the kennel she was a little bit shy but after a couple of weeks she warmed up and she was friendly and happy. She had no interest in the cats she met at all and only gave them a passing sniff. Even a wiggly kitten didn't interest her. She walked pretty well on the leash too. Because she is so young Voyager is likely to still have a lot of puppy in her still and be more active than the older greyhounds. Most greyhounds tend to start acting very sedate sometime between 2 and 3. It is hard for us to judge her activity level because she just had her spay and isn't allowed to run and play for 10 days. She is also pretty overwhelmed by everything so may not get comfortable enough to show her true personality for weeks. Voyager is being fostered in a home with a cat and has done well with it. She potties well on leash so would do well without a fenced yard. She is being fostered in a townhouse so may be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse owner.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Johns Family 8.27.13

Morton is a very tiny, red brindle male that raced at just 62lbs. He was an excellent racer that raced for several years. Morton turned 7 on May 15th. He loves to give gentle hugs and kisses and has a lot of personality. He passed his cat and small dog test and has lived with small animals. Morton is tiny enough to crawl into your lap to snuggle and that is exactly where he wants to be. He loves to play with stuffed animals and will empty his toy box and hide all his toys in his crate. He potties well on leash walks and is very quiet and well behaved when left. He would be the perfect dog for apartment or townhouse living and has lived in an apartment. He is a calm, sweet guy but has a lot of personality and is a fun dog. Morton was in a home since 2010 but his owner just recently passed away so sadly he is looking for a new home now. These photos were taken when he was 4 years old so he has a little more white on his face now. New photos coming soon! One of our generous adopters has taken care of Morton's adoption fee!

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Dyer in Liberty, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hammond family 8.26.13

Ben came from a kennel closing at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a small red male that raced at 68lbs. He is 2 years old and won't celebrate his 3rd birthday until Oct 9th. He has 32 races to his credit. A few at Gulf in Texas but most at Sanford Orlando. We also got his littermate I'm Sasha Fierce from the same kennel and petted her out quite awhile ago. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is JT Hyper Jax. Ben is much too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them and mistakes smaller dogs for bunnies too. He has done well with medium to large sized dogs that he has met though. You will want to look at his other photos to see photos of him as a tiny puppy that his racing owner took. So cute!! Another photo of him running and dragging the lead out at the track towards the box in a huge hurry to race. Ben LOVED racing! Ben is outgoing and very friendly. He is interested in checking everything out and seems very curious but calms down quickly and is a real couch potato at home. He is an easy going guy that takes everything in stride. He is smart and has picked up on leash walking fast and potties on leash. Ben has done great with the kids he has met and seems to really like them. He loves water and loves to cool off in a kiddie pool at his foster home. Ben had a unique upbringing and got a lot of socialization as a pup. His litter got parvo when they were tiny and spent a few weeks at a vet clinic being nursed back to health. He made a complete recovery and ended up being healthy enough to race. He is a very lucky boy. He is a friendly, confident, well adjusted boy that has been very good in his foster home and is one of her easiest fosters ever. Ben will need a home with another dog because he has shown that he can be stressed by being left totally alone and does better when people leave if he has another dog to be with.

Jackie came from the Sanford Orlando Race track due to a kennel closing. She is a cute little black girl that raced at 60lbs. She will celebrate her 2nd birthday on June 10th. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Jasmine Breeze. She is a littermate to Dodge Jazz. Jackie passed her cat test at the track so should be OK to live with cats and small dogs. She is living in a foster home with small dogs now. She loves playing with stuffed animals but doesn't chase balls. She complains some about being left in a crate so may not be the best dog for an apartment. Jackie is very friendly with everyone she meets but in a gentle way without being overly excited. She did great at a recent meet and greet with all the people she met. She really worked the crowd and stole quite a few hearts. Very affectionate and loves being petted. She is great on leash and is a good eater. She is really good with her house manners and is totally comfortable with being in a home now. SHe doesn't counter surf or steal things. She has learned to sit and down on command. She is very good with other dogs. She would make a great pet for a first time greyhound owner or as an addition to home with several already. She does well in new situations too and doesn't seem to be phased by much. She will be an excellent dog to take out in public because she loves to work a crowd.

Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Bowden)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Castlen family 8.24.13

Monty's owner asked us for assistance in finding a new home. They transferred from the UK about three years ago, and unfortunately the owner is being transferred again and can't take Monty this time. Monty raced only 36 races in the UK at Yarmouth, Romford and Hove and Brighton then was retired at age 2 due to a minor injury. His sire is Droopys Vieri and his dam is Oh So Wonderful. Monty has lived with two different small dogs in the past, he passed his cat test with no interest but has show some correctable interest in a couple of cats since so we listed him as trainable with cats. His owner tells us he is very low maintenance, very house trained, and always prefers to be inside with his humans whenever possible. We were told he could be a little shy at first with strangers but at our recent meet and greet he was trying to squeeze in to get love when people were petting other dogs. He seemed very friendly and social. He isn't a real needy guy though and is pretty comfortable just laying around. He isn't fond of thunderstorms or fireworks and lays under a table at his foster home when either is going on. He doesn't like being hugged or having his ears messed with so we have him listed as no small kids since it is hard to explain to small kids why that shouldn't be done. Monty made friends with everyone at the vet clinic during his dental and seems to be a very nice, well behaved boy. He seems like a very bright guy that quickly figured out how to work folding babygate - he just pushed it to the side and walked right though. He's ready to bless the next family with his unique story and sweet companionship! A couple of our members have made generous donations to cover Monty's adoption fee!

Jana just arrived from the Orange Park Track in Jacksonville. She is a tiny red fawn female that raced at just 56lbs. She was a good racer that has 123 races to her credit. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Kiowa Cruze Fast. She just turned 3 on April 2nd. Jana is a sweet friendly girl that gives kisses and will put a paw out to touch you to get attention if she is laying down. She passed her cat test and was only a little interested in the moving cat. She acted like she knew cats had claws and would back away from the cat and wouldn't get close to the cat. She lost interest quickly even in a tiny kitten and wandered off to look at other things. She is a kennel favorite and they admitted that she was a little spoiled. She liked to be fed first and would bark at them while they were preparing food to remind them to feed her. She is very food motivated and loves to eat. They said she was quiet the rest of the time in the kennel but she is probably too vocal to be an apartment or townhouse dog.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Crouch (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bryce Family of Aiken 8/17/13

Buck is a calm but friendly guy. He is a very well behaved, tall, handsome guy with lots of dark eyeliner around his expressive eyes. He raced at a thin 80lbs and weighs closer to 85 now. Buck was returned by his adoptive family because they had a baby. Buck hasn't had much experience with kids and his one quirk is that he is very uncomfortable with kids. He has always backed away from them and tries to avoid them so they felt he would be very uncomfortable and unhappy in a home with a baby. So Buck is looking for a new home with no small kids. Buck turned 7 on March 20th. We originally got him from Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida when he was younger and he has been in a home since then. He only has 12 races listed. His sire is Stan's Boy Flyer and dam is PA's Trudi. Buck is a calmly friendly guy with adults but he really does tend to shy away from kids at meet and greets. Anyone younger than a teenager makes him nervous. He isn't a nervous dog at all otherwise - just the opposite. At meet and greets he loves people that come by and will even will put a paw up and paw at them for attention. Buck likes to run and play and will play fetch with a ball. He also loves playing with stuffed toys. He is good on leash and loves to go for walks or hikes. He likes to go for rides too. Buck crates quietly and potties on a leash so he would probably be very good in an apartment or townhouse or in a home without a fenced yard. He passed his cat and small dog tests and has lived in a home with cats before so would be great for a home with small animals. Buck has great house manners and never has accidents in his foster home. He has lived as an only dog for years so might be a good dog for someone that only wants one dog.

Fostered by (location):
Householder (Charlotte)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Morris Family 8/11/13

Cat retired from Sanford Orlando Kennel after racing at Palm Beach and Derby Lane. She raced 124 races in her career. She raced at 65lbs and is a blue fawn. That is an unusual fawn with grey on dark areas instead of the black that most fawns have. It gives her a unique dusty red look. Cat turns 4 on June 16th. Her sire is from Ireland- Swahili Eile. Her dam is Red Hot Victory. Cat didn't pass her cat test so needs a home without kitties. She did do good with the Jack Russell next door even when he was barking and yelping at her but has mistaken really small dogs for squirrels so would need a home without very tiny dogs. She potties well on leash and is very quiet in her crate so might make a good apartment dog. She seems like a very gentle, sweet, calm girl. She has done great with her foster home's grandchildren so should be OK to live in a home with kids. She walks well on leash and travels well. Her foster home says she is nearly perfect and a very easy girl that would be great for a first time foster or adoptive home. She is just gorgeous with her beautiful coloring and cute little ears that stand straight up when she is curious about something.

Isabelle just arrived and was returned to us with Caleb after being in an adoptive home for 2 years together. They were returned due to allergies of one of the family members to them and not through anything they did wrong. Both are well behaved and sweet dogs that have excellent house manners. They don't seem especially dependent on each other so we will place them separately. Isabelle is mostly red with just a little brindle striping and a beautiful white chest. She raced at 64lbs and won't turn 6 until October 1st. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and she looks a lot like her famous dad. Her dam is M's Krazy Korner. She has been great with small dogs she has met amd hasn't paid any attention to the cats she has seen at PetSmart either so we think should would be fine in a home with either. She has lived with kids in her previous home and has done well with them so should be a great choice for a home with kids. Issy is confident and friendly at home but seemed just a little stressed at her first meet and greet. She didn't seek people out as much as she does at home but did enjoy being petted. Issy is playful and loves running in the yard and playing with stuffies. She has gotten along very well with the other greys in her foster home. She does potty well on leash so would do well in a home that doesn't have a fenced yard.

Chumley just celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 26th and is a little guy that weighed only 67lbs. His sire is Dave the Dog, And his dam is Topaz Lass. His foster parents actually own one of his mom's littermates! Chumley has been pretty friendly and outgoing since he arrived. He wants to get up in the front to be with people during transport to the vet and doesn't shy away from people at all like some of his brothers. He is definitely one of the more confident ones in the litter and went right up to children for petting on a recent walk in the neighborhood. He mastered a flight of steps right away and he seems to be able to deal with new things. Chumley is living in a foster home with small dogs and cats and has been absolutely fine with them. He even did well with a hyper puppy that was nipping at him. He is a very sweet loving guy. Althought the rest of his litter were heartworm positive and are on hold for treatment Chumley was heartworm negative and is ready for a new home. Be sure to look at his cute floppy ears in his other photos.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Ng in Columbia 8/4/13

Carter is a young white male with black spots. He never actually raced. He and the rest of his litter ended up being retired straight out of race training at the same time and we ended up taking all 4 of them. Carter is a very shy and seems like he hasn't been handled a lot. He will come up to people cautiously but needs work on walking on leash and building his confidence in new situations. He freezes on leash when scared. His sire is Dave the Dog and his Dam is Topaz Lass. Dave seems to throw some genetically shy dogs and we have placed quite a few of his pups. All of the dogs we have placed have become wonderful pets though that are very loving with their families. They just need some time to get comfortable. Carter is a small guy around 65lbs. He did pass his cat and small dog tests. He will cautiously come up to his foster mom for love sometimes and bounce and play bow to get her to play then at other times he is nervous and timid around her and won't take treats. He is probably the most timid guy in the litter. He really is uncomfortable on leash right now and new things like the ceiling fan scare him. He will warm up with exposure and some patience. Be sure to look at his other pictures to see some of him as a tiny baby.

Carter is on medical hold for heartworm treatment that will last about 2 months. He is expected to be cleared for adoption around Sept 10th.

Carter was adopted by the vet that fostered him during his heartworm treatment.

Long in Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Kinny Family of Grovetown GA 7.25.13

Squeaky is a tiny, dark brindle female that just arrived from the Sanford Orlando track. She was in training to race there but didn't show much promise as a racer so never actually ended up having an official race. She is very young and doesn't even turn 2 until August 31st. We don't have an official racing weight for her but she is very small in the 50s range. She is very short but pretty stocky and muscular and can just walk right under taller girls or boys. She was a little overwhelmed when she first arrived but was really friendly and happy after just a few minutes. She is submissive and politely laid down when we opened her crate door to feed her. She didn't try to take the food until the door was closed. She needs some work walking on leash because she goes back and forth between pulling toward things she wants to see and shying away from things she thinks are scary, just like a pup. She is a cute, little, waggy girl most of the time though and did ride well on the trip up from the track. She is short so puts her feet up on other dogs and things in her environment to get a better view. She has been a little noisy in her kennel but does correct and quiet very well. Her sire is Gable Wyatt and her dam is Gable Burma. Because she is a little shy we think loud, small children might be scary for her. We think she would probably do better in a home with quiet kids or older kids.

Avery is a white girl with big black spots. Her racing weight was 58lbs. She raced at quite a few tracks - Wheeling in WV, Southland in Arkansas and finally Derby Lane in St Petersburg Fl. She has 49 races listed. She turned 3 on December 13th. Avery's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Odd Garbo. She paid no attention to a little dog she met so should be fine to live with small dogs. She also passed her cat test so should be OK in a home with cats. Avery seems very social and likes people and other dogs. She has done very well in her foster home and is very sweet and friendly to everyone she meets. She is a higher energy girl that loves to play. Even though she likes kids and has been fine with the ones she has met we think she might be too playful and rough for a small child and knock them down. She would be great for a family that wants an energetic dog to do things with like long walks, hikes or other activities.

Sage is a very tall leggy girl that was the tallest dog on this dog haul, even taller than the boys. She raced at 71lbs. She is 3 and won't celebrate her 4th birthday until December 1st. Her sire is the famous English racer Balligari and her dam is Elysium. We adopted out her her littermate Happy Stutz who has been a sweet, nearly perfect guy. So far she seems just as sweet as her brother. She has a beautiful bright red coat and a white chest and some white toes. She has ears that go straight up sometimes just like her mom's. She has 78 races to her credit racing at Wheeling in WV, and Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando in Fl most recently. She had a minor injury in April and was rehabbed at the track by her trainer before they sent her to us. She is not limping and we can't tell that she even had an injury now. She seems like a calm, friendly girl. She traveled well on the way up from the track and quietly settled into her crate when she arrived. So far she has been well behaved and quiet in her crate. She is playful and loves to play with toys. She really wants to please so the smallest correction works to stop any mistake. She passed her small dog test with a boston terrier but she is definitely not going to be cat safe.

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

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

Blast Off is a small white female with red spots that raced at just 54lbs. She turned 2 on December 13th. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her Dam is WWW Jimbo Betty. She retired from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and also raced at Palm Beach in Florida. She had a total of 41 races and won 6 of those. She passed her cat test at the track and is living in a foster home with cats and small dogs and does very good with them. Blast Off is a very happy, outgoing, waggy girl. Her foster mom nicknamed her "Happy". She loves everyone and doesn't seem to know a stranger. She is bouncy and excited at first when meeting new people and is very curious about anything new. Happy seems like she is a higher energy girl but does calm down. We have had mixed results getting her to go potty on leash well so she will probably will need a home with a fenced yard. She is very quiet in her crate. She isn't bothered by anything, even the bad thunderstorms we have had recently haven't fazed her. Very sweet girl wiith a lot of personality and so pretty. Her foster home says she is a great girl and they have really enjoyed having her there.

She passed her cat test with a little interest but she was correctible so with some supervision she should be trainable with cats. She loves lounging in a baby pool on hot days. She just arrived, more as we get to know her. Beth is doing great in her foster home. She is well behaved and is a very nice girl.

He was moved to Orlando for more schooling but just didn't seem to be competitive so was retired young. Fin passed his cat test so should be OK to live with cats and small dogs. He is a larger guy that raced at 77lbs. He is young and turned 2 March 11th. His sire is the famous Greys Statesman and his dam is Fuzzys Autumn. He is good with kids and did fine as an only dog in his previous home but really likes other dogs and is good with them. He is very loving and sweet. He has good house manners already and has lived in a home since January but was returned to us because of a divorce. He should be an easy addition to just about any home.

George just arrived from a kennel closing at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. George is a small guy that raced at 68lbs. His sire is Tonys Oracle and his dam is Country Ginger. He is a littermate to Boy that is also available and arrived with him. George is a young guy that won't be 2 until September 3rd. He only has 7 races to his credit but did win one of those. George is currently being boarded at our vets and is looking for a foster home. If you are interested please contact us. George was a little stressed when he first arrived and didn't want to eat but is over that now. He is a little more timid with new things than his brother Boy and is still having some trouble learning the steps. New things like that can be pretty scary. He is very friendly with people though and will bounce happily when new people come up to see him. He passed his cat test by calmly sniffing the cats at the vet clinic and like his brother was more interested in sniffing around the clinic than in the cats. He also has met some small dogs at the clinic that he has shown no interest in other than a casual sniff so should be OK to go to a home with cats or small dogs. He is living with a male pitbull in his current foster home and they get along great.

His sire is Pat C Clement and his dam is Brett's Raceyone. He is a calm boy and travelled well on the trip up from the track. He passed his small dog test and showed no interest in them so should be fine in a home with smaller dogs. He paid no attention to the cats he met at PetSmart so should be fine with them as well. He is a friendly guy that did great at his first PetSmart meet and greet with all the people he met adults and children. So far he has been very good in his foster home. He has made some noise in his crate when left alone so probably will not be a good apartment dog. He seemed stressed when left alone with no other dogs nearby so may do better in a home with other dogs to hang out with.

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.

He is pretty calm for a young guy and well behaved. He does need some training on leash because he pulls some and is pretty strong. He is a gentle giant though and seems to be very sweet and gets along well with others. He retired from Derby Lane without an offical race. He did some training races there but they decided he was too big to be a successful racer. He seems pretty smart and is picking up on house manners quickly. He crates nicely and quietly. He likes people and seemed to like the children he has met too. He did good with small dogs that walked past him at the recent meet and greet. He still needs tested with cats.

Kitty is a gorgeous sable fawn with dark guard hairs in her coat over light fawn fur. Very unusual and striking. She has a lot of natural eyeliner. She retired in February from the Wheeling WV race track and we picked her up from the farm she went to when she retired. Kitty's sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Huska Damsel. She will celebrate her 3rd birthday on June 22nd. Kitty was pretty shy when she first arrived but she has become a very outgoing friendly dog very quickly in her foster home. Now she greets strangers that come over happily and chooses to interact with them and follow them around. She walks perfectly on leash and travels well. She just gets into a vehicle and lays down for the entire trip. She crates quietly and potties very nicely on leash so may be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse without a fenced yard. She passed her cat test with no interest other than a casual sniff so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She seems like a very calm, laid back girl that should make an easy addition. She even was fine being outside when a chainsaw was being used and didn't seem phased by the loud noise. Kitty has developed a very silly fun personality. She loves to play with toys and can keep herself entertained by squeaking a toy and playing with it all by herself but would rather have a person join in the game with her. So far she really hasn't wanted to join in games with the other dogs in her foster home though.

Kitty has been diagnosed with SLO which is an auto immune disease that causes her toe nails to fall off. We have started the treatment of Fish oils and Niacinamide (b-vitamin). Her nails are growing back. She is likely to require continued vitamin supplements to keep her SLO from flaring up again. This is something that we see in greyhounds sometimes. She has returned to being able to run in the yard pretty normally now but when she has a flare up and loses her nails she will be tender footed and won't be able to go for long walks and won't be able to play until they heal up again. Fortunately the supplements to keep this in check aren't expensive and seem to be effective.

Her sire is Lauren Tide and her dam is Oneco Persnickty. She has been in an adoptive home for 5 years since she retired and was adopted out through another adoption group that has given us permission to help rehome her. Her family is having to give her up because of moving into a senior living center. They are heartbroken about having to give her up. Shadow has good house manners and has been living with small white dogs and larger dogs and is good with all of them. She needs to be tested with cats. Shadow loves to go for rides in the car and always wants to go and rides nicely once she gets in but is a little afraid to jump into the car. When she first arrived at her adoptive home years ago she was very very shy and would run from people. Now she is very loving towards her family. She settled right into foster care though without any problem. She has even been out to a meet and greet at PetSmart. While she didn't actually go up to all the new people there she didn't shy away either and enjoyed the attention. Shadow has never tried to get up on the furniture in her home. She is a pretty black girl with white feet and chest and a white face.

His sire is Dragon Fire and his dam is Greys Realclassy. Jack just turned 3 on May 24th. He passed his small dog test with a boston terrier and seemed to enjoy having her play with him and jump on him so seems like he will do well with small dogs. He is not cat friendly though so can't live with them. He has been an excellent foster, very easy and well behaved. Very sweet and friendly and very good with the 3 kids in his foster home. He has a gorgeous, shiny almost chocolate coat with black stripes and a cute, tiny, little face. He pulled a little on leash at first but with some training now walks right beside you politely. He potties very nicely on leash so may be OK to live without a fenced yard if his family was willing to leash walk him. He is usually quiet in his crate so may be a good choice for living in an apartment or a townhouse. He plays so nicely with the female greyhound in his foster home very gently playing and rolling around together. Very cute! He loves toys.

He raced at Tri State in WV for a short time but was at Orange Park in Jacksonville Fl for the rest of his career of 67 races. Big Ugly had one of our previous adopters waiting on him to retire so was adopted just as soon as he was vetted.

Impolite is a sweet, friendly red female with a cute black face that we have been waiting on to retire since we met her at the track. She is actually very polite and was well behaved at the track. She raced at 55lbs so is a tiny girl. She is 2 years old and won't turn 3 until September 1st. She has raced her entire career of 19 races at Sanford Orlando Race Track and was a favorite of her trainers. They nicknamed her Sophia because Impolite wasn't a very pretty name for such a gorgeous girl. Her sire is Tony's Oracle and her dam is Campbell Brown and she is a sister of quite a few sweet dogs we have already placed. Impolite passed her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She needs a little more work walking on leash but her trainers at the track have been working on it with her since she arrived. When she first got to the track she would freeze when she got nervous and refuse to walk anywhere and it very nearly prevented her from racing. Her trainers worked with her for quite awhile and finally got her walking but after all that work she just wasn't fast enough to win a race so was retired. Even though she can be nervous on leash she was very outgoing and loved visitors that came into the kennel at the track. She still freezes sometimes on walks when a loud vehicle comes by but walks nicely most of the time now. She is very quiet in her crate and likes her crate. She doesn't potty on leash at all though so will need a home with a fenced yard. This is very happy sweet girl that can be just a bit shy at first in new situations but really loves people. She has been to meet and greets now and has done very well with kids and all the people she has met. She is a great girl with an unsual dark red almost brown coloring with a nearly black face.

Chucky just arrived and is an extra large male that raced at 91lbs at Southland in AK, Victoryland and Mobile in AL, and most recently Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando in FL. He was quite the traveler and does enjoy going for rides and is good on trips. Chucky's sire is DK's Prime Time and his Dam is Char Jimmy Pop. He just turned 4 on June 2nd. He is a gorgeous brindle and is very tall. He towers over even other large greyhound males and is one of the largest dogs we have ever adopted out, and is one of the tallest greyhounds we have ever placed. Chucky may be a giant, but he is a gentle giant that actually lacks confidence. He can be a little timid at first in new surroundings but warms up fast. He loves to be petted and calmly leans in for petting. He has done well on slick floors and stairs in his foster home and is very calm and laid back. He has been to PetSmart on outings several times and has done fine with all the dogs and people he has met there and goes up to strangers for attention. He has been great with the small dogs or cats in his foster home so would be an excellent dog for a home with cats or small dogs. Chucky seems like the type that would walk or more likely run away from confrontation, in fact, when he gets scared he does have the tendency to run. The folks at the track adoption kennel warned us that he got scared and tried to scale their fence - without success. So he will need a yard with a 5 or 6 foot fence or someone that will leash walk him if he goes to a home without a fenced yard. He is quiet in his crate and likes to be in his crate so may be OK as an apartment dog. Chucky has seemed to be pretty comfortable with the well-behaved children he has met so far so may be good in a home with kids. He is settling in nicely to his foster home and has been well-behaved. If you want a sweet, gentle giant Chucky is your man. We just found out that Chucky likes water and enjoys swimming!

Babe isn't actually big at all. She raced at 61lbs so is a mid sized female and a pretty small greyhound. Her sire is Heart Rumble and her dam is USS Clearshot. Babe will celebrate her 3rd birthday on June 29th. She retired from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and was a pretty good racer there and actually won her last race. She also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida and had a total of 71 races. Babe passed her cat test with no interest in the cat or the small dog she met so would be good in home with small animals. She is living in a foster home with a Yorkie with no trouble. She seems to travel well and seems pretty calm and well behaved so far. She loves her foster home's grandkids that are 10 and 13 and runs and plays with them. She can be a little vocal in her crate when no other dogs are around so might not be a good apartment dog. She can be just a little timid at first but quickly warms up and is always wagging her tail happily. She has had no accidents in her foster home! She has picked up on house manners quickly and is a very good girl.

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

Funny Face is a small brindle female that raced at 56lbs. She celebrates her 3rd birthday on May 19th. Funny Face just retired from the Sanford Orlando track with a total of 35 races to her credit. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas and Palm Beach and Derby Lane in Florida. In all those races and travel she only won one race! Her sire is Bob's Skeet and her dam is D O Slam Jam. She is a littermate to a dog we already placed named Night Club Nelly. She passed her cat test with no interest cats or small dogs so can live in a home with either. Funny Face is very sweet and gives kisses. She is friendly and happy but calm and not pushy. Funny Face is very gentle and will seek out affection calmly by standing beside you for ears scritches and petting. She plays gently with stuffed animals and just squeeks them and tosses them around. She likes to chase balls too but hasn't learned to bring them back. She is very quiet in her crate. She seems pretty confident and curious in her foster home but can be a little timid when out of her element in new places at first. She walks well on hardwood floors. Funny Face will probably need a home with a fenced yard because she doesn't potty on leash well. She has been very good with all the small and large dogs in her foster home but hasn't really interacted much or played with them yet. She seems to like tools and carried off a roll of duct tape, a hammer and a screwdriver out of the shop. Funny choice of toys for such a girly girl. Her foster home just loves her and says she is a real joy to have.

Jim is a tiny, outgoing red male that raced at just 66lbs. His birthday is Nov 22, 2007. Jim has lived in a home before so is already home acclimated. He loves people and especially loves kids and is missing the children in his previous home, where he lived with an autistic child. He is playful and will play bow to people trying to get them to play with him. Jim loves to play with toys too and will even chase a frisbee! This is a very fun boy that would be a great family dog. Jim was a return because the rental agreement changed and they could no longer have a large dog. His family was very upset about having to give him up. Jim is the rare greyhound that actually will bark happily to let you know people are arriving at the house or walking by. Because of that he wouldn't be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. This cute, sweet little guy is a couch potato but also has a fun playful side that will keep you entertained. His foster homes says he is an absolute angel that has good house manners and is already house trained! His sire is Rhythmless and his Dam is Bohemian Witty.

Little Brown is a super sweet, friendly, girl that we fell in love with the first time we saw her in the racing kennel. We have been waiting for her to retire. She is mostly white with brown spots although she is listed as white and red. Her sire is Tonys Oracle and her dam is Campbell Brown so she is a full sister to Impolite that is also available for adoption. They both have that same unusual brown color to their fur. Little Brown is very friendly and really thought she should sit in the laps of the people that were driving on the trip up from Orlando or maybe she just thought she would be a better driver. She just arrived from a kennel closing in Orlando and has 56 races to her credit. She wasn't a great racer but she placed enough to earn a little money and even won a few races. Little Brown raced at 63lbs and won't turn 3 until September 1st. She passed her cat and small dog tests very easily. She was just friendly and greeted each with a happy tail wag and a friendly sniff and was surpised that the cat slapped her and decided to stay away from the cat. Little Brown has arrived in her foster home and is a very outgoing girl with people and other dogs. When meeting people and new dogs she happily wags her whole body and not just her tail. She pulls on leash excited to see everything new so we need to work on that some. She also puts her feet up on things and people trying to see better. She does it gently but we are working on that too. She has a lot of personality and is a sweet fun girl that is very social and loving.

Patch's sire is the famous Flupas Crackerbox and his dam is FF Boots, a brood that we placed.

This little red girl broke her leg at the farm as a tiny pup. Her racing owner sent her to a specialist that doesn't think that much can be done for the leg. It isn't going to grow properly and she may not have much use of it. She has 3 other good legs though and gets around just fine. It has healed already and isn't causing her any pain it is just bent at an odd angle and may end up being very short but time will tell. She is arriving on May 18th and has an adoptive home in GA waiting on her. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is USS Arlington. DOB 3/6/13.

Update: Reese has grown up into a beautiful adult dog. Her leg didn't grow properly and is very short so doesn't get used much. It is all she has known though and it doesn't slow her down a bit. She plays and runs with the other greyhounds she lives with. Her family moved to Texas with her

Freaky Fast has a great name for a greyhound. She just retired from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and has 92 races to her credit. She raced at quite a few tracks so is quite the traveler racing at Wheeling in West Virginia, and Derby Lane and at Palm Beach in Florida. She was pretty good too. Freaky Fast is a black brindle female that raced at 64lbs. She will celebrate her 4th birthday on June 3rd. Her sire is Freak Show and her Dam is Malwa Passion. We placed her littermate Freak N Magic. She was interested in the cat during her cat test but seemed correctable so may be trainable with cats. She still needs to be tested with small dogs. Freaky Fast is a very calm, well behaved girl. She is very quiet in her crate. She walks perfectly on leash and never pulls. Freaky Fast hasn't learned to potty on leash though so will probably need a home with a fenced yard. She is quietly friendly and comes up to you for love but isn't pushy about it. She will follow you around where every you go looking up at your with big sweet eyes to see what you are doing. A very sweet laid back girl! She has done great with the kids she has met and is friendly to them.

Curley is another littermate to Larry and Mo. She has been separated from her brothers for some time now since she continued racing for longer than they did.
