Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Myrtle Beach SC at Beach Bound Hounds
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Goodwin Family of Jacksonville NC 9/28/14

Starr just arrived from a farm in Kansas. She retired from racing in 2012 and had been on the farm since then with plans to have her be a mom. When her owner heard that she had a family interested in adopting her, he decided not to breed her and send her to us instead. Starr is a littermate to several dogs we have placed already and she is being adopted by one of the families that already has her sister. Star arrived at our big dog event Beach Bound Hounds and was fostered in a hotel room. She is a very outgoing, confident girl and took all the people and dogs at the event in stride. She is not afraid of anything and even did scary open stairs the first time she saw them and had no problem on the elevator in the hotel either. She loved the ocean and wasn't afraid of the waves. She does have a pretty high prey drive and was very interested in little dogs she saw, so probably wouldn't be able to live with cats or small dogs but hasn't been officially tested. Starr is a couch dog and the first thing she did was jump up on the couch and make herself comfortable. She loves to lay in your lap too and snuggle. She is not a small girl at 70lbs but don't tell her she is too big to be a lap dog. Her sire is Balligari and her dam is Elysium. She raced 41 races at Wheeling Downs, Derby Lane and Palm Beach. She will turn 5 on December 1st. She is the one in the middle in this picture of her with her brother and sister.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the St Clair Family of N. Myrtle Beach 9/22/14

Eddie came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 78 races there. Eddie's sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Twilite Tansy. He just turned 3 on June 4th and raced at 77lbs. He is a very cute red boy that passed his cat test and small dog test at the track so should be fine to live with both. He was friendly and well behaved at the track according to his trainers. Eddie woke his foster dad up with kisses, the more he laughed and tried to cover up the more happy Eddie got and smothered him with more. He is quiet in his crate and pottys on leash well so might be a good choice for an apartment. Eddie was in an adoptive home for about a month but was just returned because he was not fond of their small children. So Eddie is looking for another home without kids.

Epic just arrived from the Wheeling WV Race Track. He was a good racer getting up to AA level at the Wheeling track and racing 109 races. He is a handsome boy that was a little overwhelmed when he first arrived from the track but has settled in very well. Now he is very friendly and going up to people and giving them kisses. Once he had a few days to settle in Epic became confident with people and with other dogs and is very goofy, happy and friendly. He thought he was the most important dog in the entire kennel at the track according to his trainer and was pretty full of himself. Epic turned 4 on Jan 3. His sire is Yo My Mediator and his dam is Leprechaun. He was fine with the small white dog in his foster home. He also passed his cat test. He was a little stressed on the long dog haul but did travel well in our vans without stressing. He is great on leash. He did fantastic at a recent trip to PetSmart and was friendly to everyone he met there including the children. This is a sweet little guy that raced at 75lbs but is actually a very short stocky guy with a long body that is shorter than some of the girls. He is very cute with stunning markings.

Intruder originally came in from a kennel at the Mobile AL track. He is a brindle male that raced at 66lbs. He was born on May 24th 2009 so is 5 years old. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is Sinead. He raced 134 races at Mobile and at Victory land in AL and was a good racer, racing a lot at A level. He is a very pretty brindle with some white on his face. Intruder is very friendly and likes to give kisses to people he meets. He does potty nicely on leash so may do fine in a home that doesn't have a fenced yard. He is a calm, happy guy that has been good with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. He did need some supervision and some correction at first because he did show a little interest in the cats but he learned quickly. He got bitten by a little dog and just tried to get away from it - he is that sweet. He has learned what squeeky toys are and loves to play with them. He is a very good boy that has been really well behaved in his foster home. Intruder was adopted in December of 2013 and has been in an adoptive home since then. He is very well behaved and loved member of the family unfortunately they are having to move and cannot take Intruder with them. So Intruder is looking for another home. Intruder crates well and is quiet in his crate so may do well in an apartment.

Pilcher in Clemson
Adoption Status: Adopted by Pilcher, 8.26.14

Blue is a rare blue, relatively large male greyhound. He is a beautiful, deep gray color with a gorgeous blaze of white on his chest. Blue is a wonderful boy and will make someone a great pet. He is well-accustomed to living in a house and has not made a single mistake in his foster home. He shows no interest in chewing on things and only shows passing interest in tempting items on a countertop or table. Blue listens very well to his humans and quickly responds to a firm "NO!" as well as a happy "let's go" or "come along, Blue".  Blue loves people! He wants to wrap his body around everyone who approaches him and seems to think that everyone wants to approach and pet him. He has that fantastic greyhound personality that loves and wants to be around people but is not needy and readily goes to his bed when his foster mom is busy. Blue loves to bury his head in people's laps and hug them with his body for attention and petting. This is really a wonderful boy! Blue does great on a leash and loves going on walks. He is nervous when walking around traffic but does not panic. He has been nervous traveling in a car in the past, but is doing better at that now. Although he still seems a little nervous in a car, he is now asks to go in the car and is doing much better riding in a car. Blue has had an unusual life for an ex-racing greyhound. After a short period on the Palm Beach Race Track, he was, unfortunately, in a hoarding house for a few years with around 40 other dogs and cats. We think that in the hoarding house he was picked on by other dogs and, although he shows no aggression toward other dogs, he does seem to end a fight if another dog starts it. Because of this, we think that Blue will do best in a home without small children or other dogs. If you are interested in Blue, let us know and we will tell you all about his background. Blue is a wonderful, happy boy who bounces a little with happiness and then quickly settles down for hugs and petting. He will be a wonderful addition for the lucky family that chooses him

She is a very waggy friendly gal that didn't seem to be too overwhelmed by her transition to home life. She is doing really good with the toddler in her foster home and walks throught the house with him holding the leash. Very cute.

Mo and his brother Larry originally came to us from a farm in Wheeling WV. They never went to the race track or actually raced. Their sire is Iceman Brutus and their dam is WJS Raina Jem. The brothers will turn 4 on September 19th. Mo is the darker of the two brothers and is the more laid back of the two boys. He is very friendly and good on leash. Mo never had one potty accident in his foster home and is very well behaved and never gets into trouble. He is a very tiny little guy at just 62 lbs. Mo loves to snuggle and is very loving. Mo loves playing but does have some arthritis in his knees starting that prevented him from racing. We have him on supplements for his knees. Mo passed his initial cat test but has wanted to play too rough with cats in one home. Not trying to kill them, just playing but we think he would do better in a home without cats or maybe in a home with a really mean cat that would set him straight from the beginning about appropriate play. Mo and his brother Larry have been in an adoptive home for a year and were returned to us. They were kept in an outbuilding all night instead of staying in the house with their family and were barking.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Lucas, 8.9.14

Grant just arrived from Derby Lane kennel in St Petersburg FL. He only raced 14 races. He was showing a lot of promise as a racer until he got bumped by another dog in the first turn and took a tumble. After that, he decided it was better to just stop at the first turn to avoid trouble. At the training track he continued to run very well and very fast and was very focused on the lure. His trainer felt he might have great potential as a lure courser since he is young and very fast. Grant is an energetic, young guy that is very friendly, happy and loving. He seems like a pretty smart guy. Grant is pretty confident but seems like he is also a sensitive guy that will do everything he can to avoid a bad situation or trouble and isn't likely to make the same mistake twice. Grant just turned 2 on June 4th. He raced at 71lbs. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is Bow Grasshopper. His littermate is Greer that is also available for adoption. He passed his small dog test and passed his cat test with no interest in either. He is a very sweet, loving guy that has done well in his foster home, quickly learning house manners and potty training. He learned a doggy door right away. So far he prefers carpet to hardwood.

Tully just arrived from the Wheeling WV race track. He race 138 races there and was very good racing at AA level and winning lots of races. He is certainly a star and we feel like we should be asking for his autograph. He turned 4 on March 23rd and raced at 73lbs. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Tovi the Proud. We placed his littermate Bawdy Miss (Taylor) and her adoptive family was planning to adopt Tully too. They have cats though and he was way too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them. So he ended up being available for adoption after all. Tully is a friendly guy that walks on leash well and loves people. He seems like a calm guy that would be an easy addition to the right home. He does fine with small dogs. Tully has even been fine with all the commotion on walks through downtown. Tully is stunning with the dark red hair, dark sabling on his neck and face and even a brownish nose instead of a black one. He is normally great in the crate but does yodel a bit in excitement when he hears you come home so probably wouldn't be the best dog for an apartment. This is a sweet loving guy that is very well behaved and is doing fantastic in foster care.

Sierra originally raced at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville and Daytona Beach in Florida for a total of 58 races. She was a good racer and won some A level races. She raced at 64lbs. Her sire is Mulberry Lazer and her dam is Mulberry Shana. She turned 2 on January 10th. Sierra's trainer said she was just a little bit timid at first but was friendly after she got to know you. She warmed up quickly to her foster family too. Sierra traveled well on the trip from the vet and laid down most of the trip. She walks great on leash without pulling. She passed her cat and small dog tests too without any interest in chasing either and has been living in a home with cats. Sierra has been in an adoptive home for nearly 2 months but is still nervous around them. She has also been too loud in her kennel during the day when one of the family members is trying to sleep. So she is looking for a new family that will be patient with her and give her the time she needs to overcome her shyness and bond with them. Because she does complain about being crated she would not be suitable for apartment living.

Suzanne is a gorgous, white girl with red spots that raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Gable Ton. She just turned 5 on May 6th. Suzanne raced 168 races at Tri State in WV and Orange Park in Florida. She was a good racer, racing mostly at A level. She is a friendly girl with ears that sometimes stand straight up when she is excited. She seems pretty confident and curious and is very friendly and sweet. She did not pass her cat test at the track so needs a home with no kitties. She is fine with small dogs and is living in a foster home with a couple of them. She is a happy, friendly, well behaved girl that her foster dad described as "a sweet old soul". She does complain a bit about being left alone in a crate so probably wouldn't do well as an apartment dog. She is very smart and figured out the doggy door in her foster home right away. She gets along great with other male and female dogs in her foster home so would be a good choice for a family with several other dogs. She would be an easy addition for a first time greyhound owner and has been in a foster home for a little while so is already home acclimated. This is a great gilr and so pretty!!!

Woody is a a beautiful red brindle, mid sized, male that raced at 74lbs. He turned 3 on December 7th and raced all his 68 races at Orange Park Race Track in Florida. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey. His dam is Miss Merle. He is friendly and sweet and lived with small dogs in his foster home. He should also be fine with cats. He has been in a home since March but wasn't good with a young child that crawled on him. Although Woody loves kids, he needs a new home with no kids or well behaved, older kids that understand that sleeping dogs shouldn't be crawled on or bothered. He is very devoted to people and very loving, choosing to follow his people around. Woody is very calm and well behaved with good house manners, so should make an easy addition to a home. He complains sometimes when left in his crate so might not be a good apartment dog. This is a sweet handsome boy.

Eddie just arrived from the Orlando race track. We have been waiting on him to arrive because we placed a couple of his littermates, his sister Leslie and his brother Lazaras. When we heard he had the same great personality we made sure we got him too. Eddie is a gorgeous, shiny, black male with white toes and a white tail tip. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kelso's Isabella. Eddie raced at 76lbs and only raced 8 races. He is young and won't turn 2 until May 4th. His trainers say that he is very smart like his littermates. Although he was at the track only a short time he quickly learned how to open the latches on the gates. Eddie is very calm and good on leash. He travels very nicely in a van and just lays down for the trip with no stress at all. He is friendly and doesn't seem to be a marker at all. He was fine with the small white dog he met in his foster home but still needs to be tested with cats. Eddie has liked the children he has met. More as we get to know him.

Bandita just arrived from the Orange Park race track. She broke her hock on April 24th in a race and was vetted and splinted there. The leg seems to be healing well but still needs to be splinted a bit longer so Bandita won't be available until her splint is off. She is expected to make a good recovery. She has 53 races listed at Southland in Arkansas and at Orange Park in Florida. Bandita's sire is Lewis And Wax and her dam is Fuzzys Rushmore. She raced at 62lbs and won't turn 4 until October 29th. Bandita did not pass her cat test so needs a home without cats. She did pass her small dog test and likes kids so should be fine to live with either. We think Bandita is the cutest thing with the spots on her eyes that almost look like big eyebrows. This is a sweet happy girl!

Her foster home says she is very sweet and very well behaved and has settled in wonderfully. She is very friendly and happy girl. Her foster mom adores her. She has met some cats outside on walks and just stands and looks at them rather than trying to chase them so we are pretty sure she will pass her cat test when she has one.

Jazz is a black male that is a smaller guy that raced at 71lbs. He just turned 3 on June 10th. His sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Jasmine Breeze. Jazz originally retired from the Sanford Orlando race track after only 4 races but he has been in an adoptive home for nearly a year. They have made the difficult decision to rehome Jazz and his housemate Crow due to financial issues. They love both the dogs. Jazz is a friendly guy that likes people and is very calm and laid back. He travels well. He will not go potty on leash and likes to trot around to find that perfect place to go so will need a home with a fenced yard. Jazz gets along well with the other male in his home and seems like he would do well in a home with other males or females. He crates well and crates all night quietly but will softly whine sometimes during the day when he wants to be out or around meal times. He walks well on leash and is very sweet and loving. He is a gorgeous, shiny, black guy that loves people! He likes kids too. He is really more interested in being with people than playing with other dogs most of the time. He will lay down and roll over to get belly rubs. He can be a bit dramatic and will yelp if he even thinks something may hurt. He is a really easy guy that has been very well behaved in his homes. He would be a great dog for a first time greyhound owner or a great addition to an existing pack. He even comes home acclimated already!

Game is an adorable, red male that just turned 5 on March 27th. He is a smaller guy that raced at 68lbs. His sire is CTW Atom Smasher and his dam is Craigie Glaze. Game is a happy, bouncy boy that is very friendly and pays close attention to the people around him. He seems to want to be with people and will even stop playing with other dogs to get attention from a person, even one he just met. He has never met a stranger and loves everyone. Game is excited to check out everything new on walks so does need some work on not pulling on leash. He has more energy than your average 5 year old greyhound and is actually one of our more energetic boys. If you want a playful, goofy, fun guy this is the one. We marked Game as older kids only just because he is so silly and playful. He loves kids and wants to play with them but with his playful, silly nature is likely to bump an unsteady toddler and knock them down accidentally. He seems like he would be a fun dog for a family with school age kids that wanted a dog that would play with them though. His ideal match would be an active involved family who is searching for a companion that is up for adventure. Game was curious about the cats in his cat test at the track but corrected well and lost interest, so we think he should be trainable with cats with supervision. He has been fine with some small, calm dogs he has met but gets pretty excited when little dogs are running around him. He is on the small side for a male greyhound but with the size difference he might do better living with medium sized dogs he can play with instead of very tiny ones. Game can be talkative when excited so would not be the best dog for apartment living. Got Game?

Train originally raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville and raced 21 races without winning one. He retired back in May of 2005 and has been in a home since then. Sadly he has been returned to his adoption group and is looking for a new home now. We are helping his group Greyhound Lifesavers find a home for this older gentleman by advertising him on our page for them. He just turned 11 on April 26th. His sire is Craigie Whistler and his dam is Miz Mandy. Train raced at 77lbs. He is a very friendly loving guy that is calm and sweet but still has the occasional burst of playfulness. Train will snuggle at night with you if that is allowed. He is OK with kids but needs a quiet home with older respectful kids. He is still a little too interested in chasing cats and smaller dogs to be able to live with them. He has been an only dog for a long time so would be fine with as an only dog, but he is doing well with the other greyhounds in his foster home. He is good on leash and is quiet and well behaved so may be OK for apartment or townhome living but because of his age would do better with a ground floor apartment. He still likes to run and play sometimes so access to a fenced area for an occasional run would be a plus. Train is a calm older guy that is very well behaved. His only bad habit is that he loves to chew on cardboard boxes. He would love a quiet home where he can snuggle and get plenty of ear scritches.

Clyde is a dark brindle male that just arrived from a farm in Jacksonville. We have known him since he was tiny and visited and played with his litter while he was growing up. He never raced because he just wasn't that interested in playing with or chasing the lure so never received an official racing name. He has been called Clyde all his life though. He tested cat and small dog safe. The farm he was raised on has small kids that visit frequently so he is used to being around kids. He just turned one year old on December 1st so is only 18 months old now. Clyde is very friendly and happy and pretty laid back and well behaved for a young pup. He seems like a very confident boy that wasn't phased by the move from the farm. He walked perfectly on leash for us and calmly went up to everyone he met wagging his tail. He doesn't have an official racing weight because he never raced but he weighed 69lbs at the vets. He is very tall for his weight though. All legs, very tall and thin!

Winnie seemed to like the kids she met so should do fine in a home with children.

His sire is Tony's Oracle and his dam is Country Ginger. He is a littermate to several other dogs we have placed. Boy turned 2 on September 3rd. He was initially pretty shy when he first arrived but is a happy, waggy boy now. City Boy is a sensitive guy though. He definitely has a preference for women and children and takes longer to get comfortable around men. He has had some bad luck with families since he was retired from racing a year ago. He was returned to us from his first family that has had him for 7 months because they were moving to Dubai for work and cannot take him. He was just returned from his second family after 4 months because they had a schedule change and no longer have time for a dog. He is a good dog and neither return was because of any issue with him. He has lived with small children in previous homes and loves them. He also has done fine with cats and small dogs he has met so can live in a home with them. Boy loves to play in the yard and likes playing with toys. If he does anything wrong he corrects very easily with a loud "NO!". He has become a goofy, happy, silly guy! Give him a rope or ball and he will be your friend for life. His potty training is excellent. He is great in a crate and will potty on leash so might be a good choice for an apartment.

He is good with the other males in his foster home though. He is excited to see everything new on walks and pulls some so we are working on better leash manners. Miles is going to be a fun, entertaining boy that is going to really show a lot of love to the family that choses him. Miles has crated quietly in his foster home so may be OK as an apartment or townhouse dog. He is a joy to have around.

Trouper is a handsome, brindle boy with cute floppy ears. His photos don't really show the rich red in his coat that is so gorgeous. He raced at 77lbs. He raced 63 races at Tri State in WV and Orange Park in Florida. He is a happy, friendly, waggy guy that is happy to see everyone. He just celebrated his 4th birthday on February 24th. Trouper's sire is Tempo Petrocelli and his dam is Synergy. Trouper showed no interest in the small dogs at the vet clinic when he saw them so should be OK to live in a home with them. He was very curious about the cats in his cat test but corrected well so we hoped he would be cat trainable. In foster care he was a little too interested in the cats for us to be comfortable with though. Since he was borderline and would need a lot of training to be OK with cats we decided to mark him "no cats". Trouper has liked the kids he was exposed to at the race track and in his foster home. He is very smart and figured out how to remove his kennel muzzle at the track. He also figured out the doggy door in his foster home as soon as he saw it. Trouper is a very outgoing guy that is very sweet and loving. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home and has a favorite girl that he likes to snuggle with. Trouper has been in his foster home now for a little while so is home acclimated and should be an easy addition to just about any home. This guy has lots of love to give his new family!

Missy is a tall, black girl that raced at 71lbs. She has a beautiful, shiny coat and is really a head turner. Missy is calm, gentle and sweet. She is a daughter of the famous Kiowa Mon Manny. Her dam is USS Top Dolly. Missy turned 3 on October 21st. She has the cutest little floppy ears that give her a cute puppyish look. Missy is a friendly, social girl that loves people. She is comfortable in about any situation and nothing seems to stress her out. She has lived around kids and likes to be around them. Missy is playful, happy and interested in everything going on around her. She loves being involved in whatever her people do. She is an excellent meet and greet dog that calmly goes up to people for love and does that wonderful greyhound lean/hug. Her only flaw is a high prey drive that causes her to mistake cats and smaller dogs for bunnies so she needs a home without little animals. Medium to large dogs of other breeds are fine. She does get along well with other dogs. Missy does potty on leash so may be fine in a home without a fenced yard. She managed to jump over a 4 foot fence when chasing a cat out of the yard so will need a 5 or 6 foot fence if she goes to home with a fenced yard. Missy has been in our foster program for nearly half of her life waiting on the right home only because she needs a home with no small animals and a high fence or one willing to leash walk her. She was in one adoptive home for a few months but they had a work schedule change which made it impossible to keep her. This is a very sweet girl with an excellent personality that always makes her a star wherever she goes. If your home meets Missy's requirements please consider adopting this sweet gentle girl. She has a lot of love to give and has been waiting on the right family for a very long time.

Fostered by (location):
Frymire in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Rogers Family 5/3/14

Dell came from the Orlando Track. He is a rare blue brindle male that raced at 72lbs. He has 51 races listed at Palm Beach in Florida and Abilene KS. Dell's sire is Iruska All Star and his dam is WW's Oprah. Dell is actually a star, he was very good and won 5 Stakes Races in a row and was the 2012 Bob Balfe Champ! He was injured in a fall in June of last year and was sent back to the farm for rehab and has been there since. It was a sprain to his front ankle but isn't noticeable now at all. When they tried to put him back on a lure to get him back to racing he would favor that leg a bit afterward so they decided to officially retire him after a year. He is fine running and playing in the yard and the leg doesn't bother him doing that level of exercise. He would even be fine for long walks, jogs or even hikes because he is a higher energy guy. He has no restrictions. Dell has a thick fuzzy farm coat from living outside right now that is shedding out. He will be a sleek rich, deep red with gray stripes when it does. Dell did not pass his cat test so needs a home without cats. He was in a foster home with a 10lb dog and was fine with him though so should be fine in a home with small dogs. He will turn 4 on May 2nd. Dell is a happy, energetic boy that is bouncy and goofy. He did excellent on his potty training, not one mistake in the house! Dell loves to play with stuffed toys and is careful with them and doesn't tear them up. He also loves chasing a ball. He is a strong guy that is wanting to go check out everything he sees so his foster home is working on teaching him to walk on leash without pulling. Dell is very friendly and loving and will settle in the room you are in on a dog bed to stay close. This is a stunning guy that is so muscular he probably should be called Arnold. He is one of our higher energy guys which is why he got the older children only rating. He would probably be the perfect dog for a family with school age children that would want a playful fun dog. He could accidentally knock down a toddler though even though he would never intentionally hurt anyone. This is a sweet guy that would be wonderful for a home that wanted a dog to do things with like obedience or Rally. He has the energy to enjoy working and having fun with his family and isn't the typical greyhound couch potato.
