Bishop just arrived from the Palm Beach Race Track. He is a gorgeous, 73lb black male with ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. He raced only 14 races before injuring his leg in a fall on July 1st. His leg was fixed, splinted and rehabbed by a vet in Florida that worked with his racing owner and trainer. He is out of the splint now and healed up so was cleared to travel to our group to be adopted. He turned 2 on October 15th. His sire is Venus Espinosa and his dam is Kiowa Lee Philli. Bishop is a friendly, playful boy with a very cool personality. Bishop loves to go for rides in the car and is a very good traveler. He loves to run around and play with toys and his old leg injury doesn't seem to slow him down. He plays nicely with the other dogs in his foster home and is all about getting his people and his friends to play with him. Although he is silly and playful he does calm down. He is a very sweet, snuggly boy that is quiet in his kennel. He is going to be a fun boy for a lucky family. He did pass his cat test with no interest so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. He will need to be discouraged from rough play with either though because of the size difference. He didn't even get excited when he saw rats at PetSmart so appears to be able to live with small animals.

Annihilator is a happy goofy guy. He is young and is very excited to check everything out on walks, so does pull some, but his foster family is working on that. He potties nicely on leash so doesn't required a fenced yard if his adoptive family is willing to walk him. Annihilator just sniffed the cat briefly during his cat test and is living with small dogs in his foster home so should be fine living with either. Handsome boy and such a fun personality.

Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Owens in Greenwood, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Carpenter family of Rock Hill SC 1/21/17

Kahr is a sweet, friendly, red brindle female. She came in from the Daytona Beach race track with her sister Kimber, that we already placed. Kahr only raced 6 races and didn't win any of them so was retired at just 2 years old. She raced at 59lbs. Kahr turned 3 on October 21st. Her sire is JJB Good As Gold and her Dam is MJG Purse Buster. Kahr was adopted by her foster family a year ago, but was returned for her safety because a female pit bull in the home attacked her repeatedly. Kahr did nothing to initiate the attacks, the most recent was when she was sleeping. Her owners had taken in the pitbull from the streets and couldn't find her owners. Initially, they tried to find a rescue group that would take a dog aggressive pit, but had no luck. After several attacks, they made the tough choice to rehome their own dog Kahr for her safety, since the Pitbull didn't have the option of going to another home. Kahr travels well and has excellent manners and is already home acclimated. She is very loving and sweet and her owners loved her very much. Kahr passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. Kahr was badly injured in the attack and spent over a week at the vets and has many many staples, stitches and open areas that can not be stitched. She had a long healing process with frequent visits to our vet and bandage changes but finally was released by our vet to go home. Her photos here are the ones taken a year ago before she was attacked.

Stephanie initially came in from the Birmingham Race Track's adoption kennel where she raced at 61lbs. She raced 165 races and was good, getting up to the top A level. She raced most of her races in Birmingham but also raced briefly at Melbourne, Sarasota, Mardi Gras, Palm Beach, Naples-Ft Myers, Flagler and Tri State Tracks. She has done a lot of traveling! She was adopted in December of 2015 so has been in an adoptive home for a year. Stephanie turned 5 on August 25th. She is a friendly girl that passed her cat and small dog tests and has been living with small dogs in her adoptive home. Her family has been calling her Nile for the last year. They are returning her because of a change in their work schedule. Stephanie is a calm, sweet girl. She was a little overwhelmed when she first arrived but quickly gained confidence and ended up being the dominant female in her pack. Stephanie is very outgoing and friendly now like she was when we met her at her race kennel. She is good on leash and very sweet. She is a beautiful dark brindle with cute floppy ears. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is USS Wild Times. She can be grumpy about her space when she is laying down on a bed so she would need to be placed with no kids or kids old enough to understand not to bother her when she is laying down.

Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Pieszchala Family of Taylors SC 1/20/17

Ivanka came in from the Melbourne Fl Race Track. She only raced two of her 24 races at Melbourne and raced most of her races at Palm Beach. She only won 2 races, that we could find, so was retired young and just turned 2 on January 12th. She is a white girl with black spots that raced at 60lbs. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is Julia WW Gilda. Her entire litter was named for the Trump family. Ivanka was overwhelmed when she first arrived and didn't do well at the vet's office. She would hide in the back of her crate and was really stressed. She is normally a friendly, submissive girl though. Just needs some time to gain her confidence back in a new stressful situation. She does ride well in a car and crates nicely and quietly. Since she gets stressed with a lot of handling at first, she may do better in a home with older kids and not little loud children. Ivanka did pass her small dog test so should be fine to live in a home with them. 

Ivanka was adopted on Trump's Inauguration day.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Ng Columbia, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Shanks family of Myrtle Beach 1/14/17

Schmidty came in from the Boltons in Orlando Florida at the end of September. He raced 46 races at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. Schmidty was adopted shortly after he arrived but was returned quickly because his family had a new baby. They said Schmidty had shown some protectiveness over his space when laying down so they didn't feel that he would be good with the baby in 6 months when it started crawling. His foster home has laid down with him and intentionally gotten in his space and bothered him while he was laying down since he has been back. She can find no hint of any space issues, in fact, after you invade his space and start to move away from him, he tries to get you to come back and snuggle with him. We have him listed as older kids based on what his owners stated even though we have seen none of that behavior. Schmidty is a calm, friendly, extra large boy that raced at 84lbs. He likes to travel and just wants to rest his head on your shoulder to snuggle. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Kentucky Ashley. He turned 3 on September 22nd. Schmidty passed his cat and small dog tests at the track so should be fine to live in a home with either. He is being fostered with cats in his foster home too.

She is very alert and seems to be a fun, happy, playful, girl. Rhoda does need some work on leash manners because she gets excited and wants to check out everything at first and pulls some. She is a super cute girl with stand up ears. Rhoda is mostly quiet in her kennel but has made some noise. She was curious about a cat during her cat test but corrected easily so seems like she would be OK with some supervision at first.

Fostered by (location):
Rodgers, Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Rogers family, Augusta, GA, 1.10.17

Boston came in from the Palm Beach Race Track where she raced 39 races. She only won two of those races and placed in a few others. But for the most part she finished toward the back of the pack. She raced at 66lbs. Her sire is Lord Dempsey and her dam is JG Mystique. She turned 2 on May 6th. Boston is a cute, sweet girl that seems pretty calm and well behaved for 2 years old. She passed her small dog test without any interest in them and has been living with a cat. She is mostly quiet and well behaved but does complain a bit about being left alone in a kennel so wouldn't be the best choice for apartment living. She was briefly with an adoptive family as an only dog and didn't seem happy there when she was left alone. We think she needs a family with at least one other dog to hang out with. She does get along very well with other dogs. She is a very sweet loving girl that is so adorable!

Bobo is a very tall, fawn male that just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He raced 175 races there and at Orange Park. He was a good racer and won a lot of races. Bobo is a larger male that weighs 79lbs. He is a tall narrow guy that is very tall for his weight. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kiowa Kelly Ann. He turned 4 on March 20th. Bobo is used to being around kids, his trainer has 4 kids and takes them to the kennel with her. Bobo was a favorite of his trainer and followed her around "helping" her in the kennel. He is missed very much and she would love to keep in touch with his new owners. This is a very special boy, whose sweet, devoted personality made him stand out in a kennel with over 100 dogs in it. He will need an extra tall 48 inch crate because his back will touch the top of the regular sized 48 inch crate. Bobo needs some work work walking on leash because he is curious about everything and wants to go check things out. He has a lot of personality and isn't a total couch potato like most greyhounds so will need some exercise in a fenced yard or better yet, daily walks.

Fostered by (location):
Garrett, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lewellyn Family of Simpsonville SC 1/4/17

Toker is a 66lb red female that came in from the Goodman Kennel in Orlando. She was a very good racer racing at the top A level and winning a lot of her 182 races. Her last race was July 30th. Her trainer's family bought her as a puppy and had her most of her life. They were hoping to be able to keep her as a pet when she retired but that didn't work out. So we were able to get a very very sweet girl to place. She has a wonderful personality and really loves her people. She passed her cat and small dog test with no interest in either. She is living with cats in her foster home and is doing great with them. She is living with kids in her foster home too and seems to really like them - the youngest kid is 8. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is USS Opportunity. She turned 4 on April 28th.  Toker does have dry eye so will probably need inexpensive daily eye drops. Toker loves to go for rides in the car. She crates quietly and has adjusted very well to pet life. She has not had a single potty accident in the house, even when her foster family has slept in a bit. She is such a great girl!

Fostered by (location):
Bowden Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Pollack family of Huntersville NC 1/1/17

Retail is a retired brood mom that had one litter of 4 puppies after a successful racing career of 77 races. She came in with her daughter Issabelle Izzy (Trista) who has already been adopted. Retail raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL and Derby Lane. Her sire is DK's Prime Time and her dam is T Dazzle. She is a short girl that weighs 60lbs. She turned 6 on Nov 25th. We placed two of her littermates already, Emo and Set Force. They are wonderful girls so we were excited to get Retail too. She does want to chase cats so can't live with them. She has been fine with two small furry dogs in her foster home and seems like she gets along really well with other dogs. Retail is a sweet girl that loves everyone she meets, especially women. When a woman comes in she will bounce and sometimes give them a hug. Retail is very happy and sweet and her tail wags often. She has the confidence of most mama dogs and not much bothers her. Retail has a gorgeous dark brindle, glossy coat. Really a stunning girl! She can be playful and silly but calms down quickly and turns into the typical lazy greyhound. Retail really does not like being crated but has done fine in her foster home without one and has good house manners. Retail has been in an adoptive home but didn't do well with the toddler in the home after the first month so was returned. Although she normally likes kids, she can be possessive with toys if kids try to take them away from her so she needs a home with no kids now.

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Strickland, Honea Path SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Strickland family of Honea Path SC 1/1/17

Bryant just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He came in with his brothers Stihl and Benton. He is the only one of the brothers to ever have an official race. He only had 3 though, and finished at the back of the pack each time, so was retired young. He won't turn 2 until April 9th. He is one of the tinier boys we have seen, racing at only 63lbs. Even though he is very young his trainer says he isn't a wild pup. We aren't trying to place the boys together because there are 3 of them, but if you are thinking about a bonded pair we could adopt 2 together. We will adopt them separately too. Bryant passed his cat and small dog tests easily. He did bark at a cat in his foster home and was a little excited sometimes but quickly got over that. His trainer has her kids work with her in the kennel so he is used to being around kids from 5 to teen. His sire is Abita Simon and his dam is Magic Patti. Bryant doesn't know a lot yet. He needs more work on good leash manners. He is a sweet friendly boy that is so cute! His trainer said that she put the brothers all out together because they were too whimpy to be put out with the other boys. The other boys would pick on them. Bryant hasn't read the book that claim greyhounds are quiet and he does bark sometimes, mainly when the ice maker makes ice. He likes to ride curled up in the front seat of the car but if he slides off he is perfectly happy to ride with his hind end on the floor and his chest and head on the seat or the reverse of that. He makes himself comfortable wherever he is and is usually upside down with his legs in the air sleeping in the "roach" position. His foster mom decided to keep him.
