Fostered by (location):
Ng in Columbia, SC Looking for Foster Placement
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Jones family of Pendleton SC 2/8/15

Surfin is a small brindle male that raced at just 64lbs. He has the most beautiful shiny, dark red, brindle coat and cute ears that stand up all the time. He is very cute! He raced at Daytona Beach and then Birmingham AL. Most of his races were in Birmingham. He was pretty good getting up to the top A level of racing and being competitive enough to win at that level. He ran 113 races before quitting in the middle of his last race after being checked by another dog in June of 2014. His sire is Surf Lorian and his dam is JD She Hottie. Surfin turned 3 on August 10th. Surfin can be just a little timid at first in new situations but seems to love people and was happily wagging his tail at the vet clinic as soon as he got there.  Surfin is a pretty calm guy but does enjoy running a lap or two in the backyard. He did pass his cat and small dog test so should be fine in a home with either. He seemed to like a 7 year old boy that he met so we think he would be good with kids that age or older. He hasn't been tested with very small kids yet.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gray family, 2.7.15

Dee is a red female that raced at 67lbs. She raced a 146 races. She traveled around, racing at Palm Beach, Sanford Orlando, Pensacola and finally retiring from Birmingham. Dee's sire is Yahoo Omar and her dam is KB's Gemstone. She turned 4 on October 13th. Dee passed her cat and small dog tests and is doing well in a foster home with both. She is a pretty red girl that is friendly and sweet. Her foster home says she is learning the house rules fast. She does a cute little greyhound grin when she is happy. She is a very calm, well behaved girl but seems like she is taking a little while to settled in because she whines and paces as if she is missing her track kennel. She has done the whining and pacing in a home with other dogs and in a home without other dogs so having other dogs and people around her doesn't seem to help. It will probably just take time for her to settle into a new routine and adjust to her new life.

Fostered by (location):
Ditmore in Chapel Hill NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Kunz, 2.7.15

Beast is a very sweet, black boy that is arriving from the Birmingham Race track. We were told that he is actually more Teddy Bear than Beast. He is stunning with his white blaze, feet and chest on his shiny black coat. He only raced 8 races and didn't win any of them. His kennel is closing so he is being retired early. He raced at 73lbs and will turn 3 on April 19th. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny. His dam is BD's Regan. Beast passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live in a home with either. He was picked as a quiet, well behaved guy that would do well being fostered in an apartment. So far he has been a little timid with all the changes and new things in his life but seems like he will be one that warms up fast. He seems to like people and seems like a very sweet laid back guy.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Householder (Charlotte, NC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Memmolo family, 2.7.15

Zoe is a stunning brindle with black stripes over an unusual chocolate brown and a dark face. She raced for a long time. She started out racing at the Naples Ft Myers track, then moved to Jefferson County, and on to Daytona Beach before ending up at the Birmingham Race Track. She raced 230 races and is still winning. Her last race was a top 'A' level race. Her kennel is closing and because she is 4 and a half years old they are chosing to retire her even though she is still a good racer. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her Dam is Miss Irish Jawa. She did not pass her cat test so will need a home with no cats. She did pass her small dog test so should be fine in a home with them. She turns 5 on July 21st. She is a friendly, happy girl that is calm and well behaved. She has picked up the rules quickly in foster care and is very good. Zoe hasn't had one accident in her foster home. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. Zoe is very sweet and her foster home says very nearly perfect. She is quiet in her crate and potties well on leash so would be fine for an apartment or other home without a fenced yard. She should be great for a first time greyhound owner that wants an easy dog or someone that is looking to add a greyhound to their existing pack.

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Waldron Family of Evans GA 2/2/15

Ryan came in from the Orange Park Track in Jacksonville Florida. He had a long successful career racing 195 races. His last race was in November. Ryan turned 5 on April 7th. His sire is Stan's Boy Flyer and his dam is Tryton's Baby. He raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized male. Ryan is not really a wild boy like his name suggests. He is loves to play but just in short bursts like the typical greyhound then is back taking a nap. This is a very sweet boy. Andy didn't pass his cat or small dog test and was too interested in chasing them to be able to live in a home with them. Medium sized dogs and larger should be fine though. We have Ryan listed as older children only. He really likes small kids and seeks them out and is very good with them normally. Like many dogs, Ryan doesn't like to be bothered when he is sleeping though, so we can't place him with children that are too young to understand that.

Fostered by (location):
Persic (Charlotte, NC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Persic family of Charlotte NC 2/2/15

Faith is a small girl that raced at 55lbs. She is a light fawn that turned 3 on March 3rd. Faith raced 111 races in Abilene KS, Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA and Sanford Orlando in Florida. Even though she ran a lot of races she only won 5 of them. Her sire is Kiowa Pretence and her dam is Sheena Shines. She is described as being a very friendly social girl that goes up to everyone for love. She is calm and well behaved though. Faith has been pretty overwhelmed since she arrived and has been pretty shy with us. Since she was so outgoing with her trainers at the track we are sure she will warm up fast. She passed her small dog test and didn't even get up from laying down when she saw him.

Faith was renamed Neala and lived happily in her adoptive home with the Persic family until she passed away suddenly on 6/26/17 due to either a blood clot or a brain tumor.

Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Augusta, SC (Sellner)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Hakes, 2.1.15

Klondike came from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. He raced most of his 157 races at that track but also raced early in his career at Melbourne, Daytona Beach, Jefferson County, Sarasota and Ebro tracks. He is a very tall, handsome, brindle male that raced at 78lbs. His sire is USS Raceway and his dam is Greys Redington. He did not pass his cat test so needs a home with no kitties. He did do OK with the small dog he was introduced to so should be Ok in a home with small dogs with supervision at first. Klondike has a wonderful, happy, personality and loves people. He seemed to handle the trip very well and didn't seem stressed by anything. He was adopted but now Klondike is back with us and looking for another family because he made noise when left alone in his crate. He needs a housing environment without very close neighbors and definitely isn't an apartment or condo dog. He was living with another greyhound so having another dog with him doesn't seem to really help him stay quiet. He's a gorgeous, friendly boy and is ready to try again with the right situation!

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Davis, Yadkinville NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Lohoefer family of Myrtle Beach, 1.31.15

Barry came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He made it to the track but never had an official race. He is a pretty timid, shy boy so he was retired before he really got started. Barry is very young and won't turn 2 until March 6th. His sire is Pat C Clement and his dam is GS Millie. He is a smaller guy that weighs 68lbs. Barry is a shy greyhound that is going to need a family with patience that will give him the weeks or months it will take to warm up to them. He is likely to be more of a home body that is too timid to enjoy going out to new places around a lot of people. Barry did pass his cat test, and was afraid of the cat. So far Barry is doing well in his foster home. He does cautiously follow his foster mom around and likes to be right behind her. He gets timid if she turns and looks directly at him but he does like to be petted and you can grab his collar without him running away so he doesn't seem to be as shy as we thought. He isn't brave enough to take treats out of her hand yet. He crates well but does make some noise when alone so wouldn't be a good apartment dog. For a young boy he is very calm. We think he will be a wonderful pet for his new family after he has a chance to warm up to them.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Allee family of Charlotte 1/15/16

Pam is a red brindle female that raced at 65lbs. She is retiring from Palm Beach Race Track after 73 races. She also raced at Flagler and Naples-Fr. Myers tracks. She will turn 3 on March 21st. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is USS Out of Sight. She has a beautiful red brindle coat and is a very sweet girl. Pam was very interested in the cat she met at the track but was much better with the second cat she met here. She went right up to sniff but got slapped by the cat and had no interest in getting near the cat again. So we put her down as trainable. She would probably do best with a cat that would stand its ground and not run away. She seems like a bit higher energy girl that gets excited easily about everything and runs up to check out anything new. She was equally excited meeting the small dog but just sniffed politely and quickly realized what he was. She has complained loudly about being in her crate the first few hours she has been here so may not do well in an apartment. She travels very well. She was hard to get photos of because she wanted to lean up against the legs of the person holding her leash the entire time and it was hard to get the legs out of the pictures.

Dream is a little white girl with black spots. She is small, racing at 58lbs. She raced at 67 races mainly at Daytona Beach. She recently moved to Birmingham and only ran a few races there. She did win some races. Her sire is TK Quick Strike and her dam is Hamparsum. She turned 2 on May 7th. She passed her cat and small dog tests at the track so should be fine to live with either. She is doing well with the cats in her foster home. Dream did great with an 18 month old that visited her foster home. She is still a bit timid but does wag her tail when people approach. Dream kennels nicely and will go in when told and is very quiet in her kennel. She eats well and is a very good girl. She doesn't do steps very well yet. She is just getting the hang of going down but has a lot of trouble going up steps still. So far Dream hasn't tried to get up on the furniture and prefers to lay on her dog bed. Most greyhounds aren't comfortable in the sit position and it isn't a natural position for most of them but it is for Dream. She will sit on her own.
