She loves to follow her foster family and the other dogs in her home around. She is very food motivated so would probably learn tricks really fast for food. Snitch is very quiet in her crate and sleeps through the night. She has adapted to foster care really easily.

Fostered by (location):
Dyer, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Crayton Family of Charlotte NC 7/16/18

Buzz came in from Jade Feise at the Naples Ft Myers Race Track. He just raced 9 races there and only won one of those so was retired young. His last race was January 18th and he has been waiting in the kennel since then. Buzz just turned 2 on April 17th. He is a big stocky guy that raced at 80lbs. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is HS Texoma. Buzz was too excited around cats, so needs a home without them. He was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound, so may be OK to live with smaller dogs. Buzz is a friendly, happy guy that loves people and will be very devoted. He likes playing in the yard and would love to have a fenced yard of his own. He is very food motivated, so would be perfect for someone that wanted to train tricks, agility or do obedience with a dog. He doesn't get up on the furniture so far. Buzz would like a home with another large dog in it because he doesn't like to be left totally alone. He is doing really well in a home with several other greyhounds, but didn't do well when left totally alone in a home with no other dogs. Buzz loves to play with toys and has learned how to fetch already. He is a very smart guy that will be a lot of fun for a lucky family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Armstrong Family of Taylors SC 7/12/18

Nosey just arrived. We picked her up in Birmingham Alabama from the Race Track. She was sent to the greyhound adoption group there because they transport thousands of retired greyhounds to adoption groups all over the country every year. She actually raced in Daytona Beach. She has 26 races listed and raced at 64lbs. She turned 2 on March 10th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen, that one of our volunteers adopted after he retired. Her dam is AMF Set Aside. Nosey won a few races in her career and wasn't bad. She is a sweet girl that is pretty calm for a younger girl. She is excellent on leash and travels very well. Nosey was a little interested in the cat at first but lost interest quickly, so we think she should be trainable with them. She has been fine with the small dogs she has met. She does fuss about being in her kennel some when by herself so may not do well as an apartment or townhouse dog.

Marvin is coming in for one of our volunteers that met him on a trip to the track and has been waiting on him to retire. So he is not available for adoption. Marvin is rare blue/grey male. He raced at 77lbs and raced 118 races. He was a fantastic racer racing at Wheeling Downs, one of the top tracks. He raced at the top A and AA levels there. Once he started slowing down a bit he was moved to Sanford Orlando to finish out his career and has just retired from there. He turned 4 on Jan 9th. Marvin's sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is Barts Magpie. He is a sweet boy that is friendly with people and other dogs. He gets along well with all the other dogs at the kennel and never causes any trouble. A really good boy. Marvin passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He has done fantastic since he arrived. We found that he loves to play with toys and he spends a lot of time playing in the yard with the kids in his new family. He is a pretty submissive boy that tries hard to please and tries not to do anything wrong.

Harry passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either.  He liked the children he met and tried to get them to play with him. He travels well and kennels well. He seems like a friendly, calm guy that should do well in just about any situation. Harry was brought in for a specific family and was adopted by them shortly after he arrived.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Kaage (Augusta GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Burnside Family of Martinez GA 7/4/18

Sippin is a beautiful 66lb red girl that just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. She raced 170 races so had a long career. She also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler, Mardi Gras and Dubuque tracks, so traveled around quite a bit. She mainly raced at the lower D levels but did get up to the top A level briefly during her career. Her trainer says she is a sweet girl that keeps her crate clean and is very quiet. Sippin is very reserved at first with strangers but does warm up with time. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Rain On Me. She turned 4 on January 16th. Sippin still needs tested with cats and small dogs. As expected, Sippin was very overwhelmed by the move from the track kennel into a foster home. The first day it took her foster family 5 hours to catch her and get her back in the house after a potty break in their fenced yard. Sippin just was too afraid to come back inside or to let people she didn't know close enough to her to catch her. So she will need to be leash walked until she gets to know her new family. She is just timid and will need time and patience. She was friendly and happy at the track with the trainers she knew and loved. It may take a few weeks or even a few months for her to warm up to a new family and new environment. She is starting to slowly warm up and follows her foster family from room to room but stays just out of reach most of the time. She is very quiet and never makes a peep. Sippin has done really well on walks in the neighborhood with other greyhounds and seems to gain confidence from being with a more confident greyhound. She would love to have a greyhound brother or sister and a safely fenced yard in her new home. Sippin just glanced at the cats she saw in the vet's office and didn't even try to go near them so we think she would be OK to live with cats and small dogs.

Tea just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. She also raced at Derby Lane in St Pete. She briefly got up to the top A level, but mostly raced at the lower levels. Tea will turn 3 on July 19th. She raced at 62lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale and her dam is All Access Pass. Tea passed her cat test so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. According to her trainer, Tea is a bouncy, happy girl that is a little more active than the average greyhound. She has been pretty quiet and overwhelmed since she arrived so far. She was pretty timid with people and was uncomfortable with strange dogs sniffing her. By the end of the first day she was standing and letting us pet her rather than shying away, so we think she will warm up pretty fast. She is eating well and slept through the entire first night without a peep. Her trainer says she was a barker at feeding time and wasn't shy about telling her that she needed to be fed first. Her trainer also told us that she was an energetic happy fun girl at the kennel and we are already seeing that after just a few days.

Diamond just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a cute brindle girl that turned 3 on Feb 19th. She has 53 races listed and raced at 62lbs. She raced at Valley Race Track in Texas and Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando Tracks in Florida. She wasn't a good racer and only won one race that we could find. She did place just enough at the lowest level to keep racing for awhile, but gradually spent more and more time at the back of the pack, so was finally retired. She passed her cat test but we listed her as "trainable" because she was excited to see the cat at first. She was just curious though and is excited to check everything new out. She quickly lost interest. She is a happy, friendly girl with a tail that wags all the time. Sometimes she wags so hard that the tail nearly wags her. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Atascocita Vita. Her trainer says she is a very outgoing girl bouncy, fun girl that tends to be a bit more energetic than most. Really a sweet girl that likes everyone she meets so far.

Kendal came in from the Palm Beach Race Track where she spent about half of her racing career of 57 races. She also raced at Orange Park. She mainly raced at the lower levels of racing but did win a few races and did a lot of placing. She is a small, light fawn female that raced at 58lbs. She seems really calm and well behaved and didn't make a peep in her kennel. She will turn 4 on August 1st. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Mani Sweet. Kendall was adopted in January of this year and was renamed Kombi. She is being re-homed due to a work schedule change. She is now home for too long by herself every day and the person that comes to let her out in the afternoon is going to be unavailable soon. She does fine with 8 hours, but they are often gone longer than that. Her family has made the difficult decision to have us find her another home. Kombi has been living with a cat and a small dog. She lets the cat wash her and play with her. Her mom says that she is a very good girl and very well behaved. She has been living with older children, a 10 and an 18 year old and has been very good with them.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Whitson Family of Columbia SC 6/16/18

Greer just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. We aren't sure why she never raced but most of the rest of her litter did. All the girls in the litter were very good racing at the top levels and competing in Stakes races. Most of them went on to become Moms like Greer. Greer has a total of 11 puppies that have been registered to race so far but she could have another younger litter or two that has yet to be registered. She had one litter in 2014 that have all already been retired from racing. Greer had another litter in 2016 and most of those are racing right now. Greer will turn 7 on October 23rd. Since she never actually raced she doesn't have a racing weight but we would guess her to be around 60lbs. Her sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Pawn Of Ruckus. Greer is timid at first and seems pretty overwhelmed by all the changes in her life. She is very calm and quiet and likes the safety of her crate so far. She seems like a very laid back girl but may just need time to get more comfortable before she gets confident enough to show her personality. She isn't terribly shy or scared of people, she is just unsure. Greer passed her cat and small dog tests so should do fine in a home with either one. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Arrowood Family of Morgonton NC 6/15/18

Journey just came in from the Sanford Orlando Track. He is an extra large male racing at 88lbs. He raced 43 races and started out racing at Southland in Arkansas. He only raced a few races there and was moved to Sanford Orlando for the rest of his career. He got up to the top A level briefly. He injured his hock on January 6th and hasn't raced since then. He was healed up and rehabbed at the track in hopes he could return to racing, but after he ran a couple of practice runs his trainer decided to retire him rather than risk him re-injuring the hock. Journey is a gentle giant of a dog. He has no idea he is the biggest dog in the kennel and is actually sensitive and a bit timid. He may need some time to warm up to a new family. Journey was overwhelmed when he got into foster care. He still wagged his tail a little and approached cautiously if called. He would shy away from fast movements and loud noises. Journey caught onto the steps to go outside pretty fast after being afraid to try them the first time. He passed his cat test so should be able to live with cats or small dogs. He is a beautiful black male that will turn 3 August 21st. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Prickly Pooch. He seems like a timid sensitive boy that will warm up pretty fast to his new home and family. He is quiet in his kennel and eats well even when stressed. He hasn't skipped a meal and seems to be adjusting well to his new food.

Cool just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She had a long career of 126 races and was pretty good even competing in a Stakes Race. She raced at Tri State and Wheeling Downs in WV. She retired in October of 2014 and went back to the farm to become a mom. We aren't sure if she ever had any puppies because so far none have been registered to race. Pups have to be registered before racing and usually are registered by the time they are a year and a half old. Cool has been on the farm for nearly 4 years and turned 8 on March 24th. She is looking for a couch of her own now and seems like she may have found one at her foster family's home. Cool is a happy, silly girl with a lot of personality. She is very outgoing and friendly and doesn't seem to be scared of much except for shiny floors. Cool raced at 64lbs. Her sire is USS Raceway and her dam is Myokie Flame. Cool passed her cat and small dog tests and is being fostered with both. More as we get to know her.

McManis (Easley, SC)

Judith just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She had a long career as a racer with 151 races. She started out at Wheeling in WV and then was moved to Tri-State, also in WV. She raced the top A and AA levels most of her career at Tri State and was quite the star winning a lot of races. When she retired from racing in December of 2013 she went back to the farm to be a mom. Judith had one litter of 7 puppies in May of 2015. She did not pass on her talent to her kids and that litter has already retired from racing and some never raced at all. Judith may have had other litters that haven't been registered yet, since then. Judith is a fuzzy black female that still has her thick farm coat from spending a lot of time outside. It is sun bleached so she will look chocolate brown until it all sheds out and then will be glossy black with a normal short greyhound coat. Judith raced at 62lbs. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Shelbourne Jess*. She turned 9 on January 1st and she raced at 62lbs. Judith is a friendly, happy girl that took her trip from the farm to her foster home in stride. She traveled well and just got into the vehicle and laid down. She wasn't nervous walking on shiny floors or going up and down stairs. She seems pretty easy going and not much stresses her. She passed her cat and small dog tests and likes people. She got along well with the other females on the trip. More as we get to know her.

Fostered by (location):
Wiesner, Moore SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Freshwater Family of Charleston SC 6/10/18

Cabrera came in from the Sarasota Race Track. She also raced at Ebro and Orange Park. Even though she raced 123 races, she wasn't really fast. She was only competitive at the lower D levels of racing and placed in the money just enough to keep racing. She raced at 65lbs and just turned 4 on May 20th. Cabrera's sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and her dam is Ozark Beth. Cabrera is a happy, friendly girl that will make a great pet. She liked the cats she met a little too much to be able to live with them. She did fine with a whippet that she is being fostered with and some smaller dogs she met. Although she is being fostered with children and likes them, we have noticed that she can be a little protective of her space when she is laying down so we would prefer to place her only with a family without small children that wouldn't understand that old saying "Let A sleeping dog lie." Cabrera is very loving and so sweet that her foster home was really wanting to keep her permanently but with their small kids she wouldn't work on a permanent basis.

Buckwheat came to us from Jimmy King at the Naples Ft Myers Race Track. He raced 66 races and also raced at Flagler. Buckwheat only won 5 of his races but placed a lot. He is a 71lb black male that will turn 4 on August 19th. His sire is the very famous DJays Octane and his dam is Too Cool Cathi. According to his trainer, Buckwheat can be a little timid at first in new situations but once he gets to know you, he will be your best friend. Buckwheat is such a good boy! He is quiet in his crate while his foster family is at work. He lays right down on his bed at night and sleeps through the night. He plays well with the other greyhounds in his foster home. He is happy and his tail wags all the time. He was a little curious about the cat at first but after she swatted him once he is more cautious around her. He tries to get her to play but is polite when she says no. Buckwheat has the sweetest personality and is so shiny and beautiful. He already knows how to fetch a ball too! He also passed his cat and small dog tests so could live with either. He seems to like kids too. This is an all around great guy.

Sally came in from Oxbow Trow Kennel at the Naples Ft Myers Race Track. She just raced 14 races and won only 1 of them. She rarely placed so was retired young. Sally is a white girl with black spots that just turned 2 on May 27th. She still has a puppy look to her face and still has some playful puppy energy too. Sally raced at 62lbs. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and her dam is Wayward Angel. She is a very sweet girl. She was a little interested in the cat when she met it but lost interest quickly. Sally was in a foster home with cats and did fine there. She has done well with the small dog she has met but wants to play with him so needs a home with a small dog that is at least big enough to play with safely. She does really like kids. Sally is a friendly girl that loves people. She is mostly quiet in her kennel but does occasionally make some noise. She is young and still learning manners so will need supervision until she learns the rules.

Holly just arrived from the Jacobs Racing Kennel at the Naples Ft Myers Race track. She only raced 29 races there and at the Flagler track but she wasn't able to win one of them. Holly usually was toward the back of the pack and looks like she may be little accident prone because she fell in several of her races. She is a red female that raced at 62lbs. Holly turned 2 on February 12th. Her sire is Shonn and her dam is Glossy Glow. Holly is very sweet and friendly. She is a natural sitter which is unusual for the breed. Most aren't comfortable in the sit position by the time they reach full growth. She is mostly quiet in the crate but does complain a little. Holly passed her cat test easily with just a calm sniff. The cat slapped her and she backed off and wasn't interested in going back. She also has been fine with the small dogs she has met. A really sweet girl.

Ace is a greyhound racing star and had a long successful career of 216 races. He raced at Ebro, Sarasota, Mardi Gras, Flagler, Dubuque and just retired from Naples Ft Myers. Ace was consistently racing at the top A levels and competed in many Stakes races that are reserved for the fastest greyhounds at that track. He won some of those races too and was a 2015 Naples Floridian Finalist. He is coming in from Jimmy King at the Flagler track and we are thrilled to be able to meet and place a star like Ace. We wish he could sign autographs. His sire is the very famous Trent Lee and his dam is Kiowa WW Ring. Ace raced at 74lbs and turned 5 on February 21st. Ace has an awesome friendly personality. He is very calm and seems like he would be a very easy first greyhound. He was not interested in the cat at all so should be great living in a home with cats and small dogs. Very sweet guy! Update: Ace's foster family has decided to keep him!!

Vixen just came in from the Naples Ft Myers Race track. She raced 121 races there and at the Flagler Race track in Florida.

Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Oshkosh Verizon. She was somewhat interested in the cat when she met it but she may be trainable. We would like to do another test with another cat to see how she does. Vixen does the famous greyhound grin when she is excited or happy. Very cute! She is quiet in her crate.

Special Needs Boy That Has Been With Us The Longest! Hitch is a handsome, black guy that came to us from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He is a smaller guy that raced at 66lbs. Hitch raced 30 races and only managed to win one of his races so was retired young. He just turned 3 on April 23rd. His sire is P's Gibbs and is dam is Kiowa Super Cin. Hitch has an auto immune caused dry eye condition, where the tear ducts just suddenly stopped producing any tears. Hitch's eyes were OK when he began racing and his last race was August 8th. When his trainer noticed that his eyes became dry, he was started on antibiotic treatment, lubricating drops and eye flushes at the track. Hitch was at the track waiting on a group to take him from August to December. We got Hitch from the track at the end of December and have worked with our vet and eye specialists to resolve his eye issue.  Our vet started him on prescription lubricating eye drops that were given several times a day when he arrived. Unfortunately that medication didn't work well and he developed a deep ulcer on one eye and had to have emergency surgery to save the eye. When he went in for a recheck on that eye, ulcers were also found on the other eye. So Hitch had to have another emergency surgery on that eye too. One surgery was $2200 and the other was $1800. The eye specialist came up with another treatment plan with drops that can be given several times a day that work to keep his eyes lubricated. This treatment has been successful and he seems to be pain free now and he he is able to see!! So Hitch has finally been released for adoption after 4 months. Hitch is an exceptionally sweet guy that has a wonderful personality, in spite of all the trouble he had with his eyes and the pain he was in. He has been very cooperative with the vets and staff during his surgeries and treatment. Once Hitches' eyes stopped hurting all the time and he could see again, he went from a subdued dog that liked staying in his crate with his eyes closed, to a silly, happy, playful guy. Hitch passed his cat and small dog tests easily, and has been fostered with both so is used to being around them. Hitch has been going to work every day with his foster mom and is very well behaved in the office and enjoys the attention from her coworkers. The pictures of Hitch with the gunk around his eyes were taken when he first arrived. The ones with shaved patches around his eyes were taken right after surgery. The one with Hitch wearing the cone was taken some time after the surgeries and you can see the red grafts. The hair has grown back now and his eyes are clear, but each eye has a reddish patch where a surgical graft was put on to patch the holes in his eyes. You can see the graft in the more recent pictures taken in April with the toy, standing on the wood floor and with the green circle drawn around the eye.

If you are considering adopting this special guy, these are the medications that Hitch is on and what they cost: Twice daily drops of compounded 1% Tacrolimus morning and evening ($75 for 2.5 -3 months supply). Drops of artificial tears several times a day: morning, after work, and right before bed would work (cheap and available over the counter). One drop of Fluriprofin 1 time per day whenever convenient ($12 to $25 dollars depending on where it is purchased, one bottle lasts months). Hitch will need rechecks of his eyes twice a year. Hitch doesn't need drops at night when he is just sleeping. Because of generous donations toward his adoption fee, Hitch's fee will be just $50 and he will come with at least a month's worth of medications. He will need to continue his medications for life.

We have spent nearly $5000 on Hitch's two surgeries, hospital stays and with the specialist trying different medications until we found a treatment that worked. If you would like to help with Hitch's medical expenses please go to our donation page. We appreciate all the donations that have come in for Hitch already!

Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Flying Bassey. Haley is a friendly, happy girl that likes people. She was too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them and tends to mistake small dogs for squirrels or bunnies so needs to live with medium to larger size dogs. She gets along well with other dogs and is a very sweet loving girl that is going to make a wonderful pet.

Piper initially came to us from a greyhound farm and at that time she was called Hunter. She just had no prey drive and wouldn't chase anything so never even made it to the race track. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is Cbar Bigspender. We got her before her 2nd birthday and she has been in a wonderful adoptive home since then. Piper will turn 5 on June 26th. Piper's family made the difficult decision to re-home her because she is panting, stressed and staying in her kennel since the birth of their third child. They had one baby when they adopted her and she was fantastic with him. They had a 2nd child after they adopted Piper that is now a toddler, and just added a 3rd new baby to the mix. Hunter can be a little jumpy and timid in new situations but loves people and really loves to snuggle with people. She is such a sweet loving dog, but loud voices or quick movements can make her skitter away temporarily. She is very quiet in her kennel so may do well in a townhouse or apartment. Hunter potties really well outside as soon as you put her out. She does tend to freeze up a bit on leash when confronted with something new and scary so needs a little work on that. Hunter is a very sweet, timid young girl that hasn't seen much of the world yet and needs some exposure to new things. She is so beautiful with all that eyeliner.

Her sire is Mamas Special Ed and her dam is Mamas Sunny Skies. Reggie is pretty timid so far. She seems like she wants to cautiously interact with strangers, so probably will be fine with time and is just overwhelmed by everything new in her life. Reggie is quiet in her kennel and sleeps all night. She is a small female that raced at just 56lbs. Reggie passed her cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either one.

Coco just arrived from the CTW Greyhound Farm in Texas by way of the Birmingham Race Track. Coco arrived with her sister Jojo. Neither one of them actually raced. They failed out of race training because they would come out of the box and go straight to the nearest person for love instead of chasing the lure. Just no prey drive or chase drive at all. They are both tattooed Left ear 68886 and right ears are 66a and 66b. So they started the registration process but never completed it to get a registered racing name. One of their sisters, CTW Sugarfoot did complete the registration process so we have all of Coco and Jojo's info on the database through her. We don't have a weight on the girls but their sister is racing at 60lbs so chances are that they are a similar size. Their sire is Trent Lee and their dam is CTW Starlet. They will turn 2 on June 11th. With not even enough prey drive to chase a lure, both should be fine with cats, small dogs and other small critters. There are children on the farm they were raised on that help take care of the dogs so they should be very used to being around kids too. More as we get to know these girls.

She has done fine and shown no separation anxiety since she has been back with us. She has been great with the other dogs in her foster home and has kenneled nicely too. Aggie is being fostered with kids and likes kids a lot. She is an excellent meet and greet dog, going to each person for petting that comes up. She has no sense of personal space and loves to snuggle with other dogs and humans. Really a sweet girl. She may need a fenced yard because she likes to take her time to go potty and likes to find just the right spot.

Xander passed his cat test with just a little initial interest at first. After a thorough sniffing, he decided that there were more interesting things to sniff than the cat and totally lost interest. He also did fine with the small dog he met. He seems like a fairly confident guy that may be a natural leader. His ears stay straight up a lot and one flips over his head sometimes, which just makes him stand out in a crowd and is very cute. Xander turns 3 on June 7th.

Black House is a gorgeous, large, 79lb, black male that came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. He only raced 26 races and also raced at the Dubuque Track. He only won 2 races in his career so was retired young. He won't turn 3 until August 24th. He is a very calm, laid back guy that is very sweet but very shy. House warmed up to his foster family after a few weeks, but gets very overwhelmed and scared in new places and can be very shy with new people. Nothing bad ever happened to him, he just has a shy, timid personality. He is more of a homebody that usually prefers his familiar environment. He does jump right in the SUV and likes to go for drives though and actually seemed to enjoy the attention of people at a recent PetSmart meet and greet. So he may eventually do better in new situations with more exposure. House does walk pretty well on harness and leash. He is doing great with the children in his foster home and the other dog. With most shy dogs, a house full of loud children may be overwhelming, so if we place him with kids it would be best if it they were quieter kids. House showed no interest in chasing cats when he met them and was more interested in getting into the safety of a familiar crate at the scary vet office. He is normally really well behaved and corrects easily if he does anything wrong. Once he warms up to you he is a happy waggy guy that is very loving. House seems like he will make a wonderful pet. He is just a very sensitive guy that will need time to warm up to new situations and a new family. He generally likes his crate and looks on it as his safe place but can make some noise in it, so probably wouldn't be the best apartment dog. House's sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Lookn Even Finer.

He is a big guy that raced at 82lbs. He turned 3 on February 4th. His sire is Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Oshkosh Paris. Gunner is a very sweet, friendly guy that doesn't know a stranger. He will stare up into your eyes and carefully watch what is going on around him with the cutest look on his face. We aren't sure how good his eyesight is though and are having our vet check his eyes. His eyes look completely normal, but his vision just seems like it might be limited. He runs and plays and acts totally normal and it is more noticeable with things up close to him. Gunner was completely sure he could drive the van at first though. He did lay down pretty quickly and travelled well. He goes potty nicely on leash, so may do fine without a fenced yard with regular leash walks. He seems to get along well with other dogs and has liked other dogs he has met both large and small. He gets overly excited about cats though even though he wasn't completely sure where the cat was during most of the cat test. Just the smell of the cat and whatever he could see of the shape of the cat was pretty exciting to him, so he needs a home with no cats. Small dogs seem to be fine though even if cat sized. Gunner is just the most precious, loving guy. He will be your shadow. He is the cutest guy!

Sweet Pete just arrived from the Birmingham AL Race Course Track adoption kennel. He never actually raced there, but was one that was sent there because they transport a lot of retired dogs to other adoption groups across the country, including ours. He raced 126 races all at the Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He was a pretty good racer racing a lot of his career at the top A level and even winning A level races. Sweet Pete is a stunning 76lb dark brindle guy that is a rich mahogany red with black stripes. He has the most beautiful shiny coat. Just stunning! Sweet Pete turned 4 on December 8th. He is a strong guy that needs some reminders on walking nicely on leash because he gets excited and wants to see everything at once. He is very friendly and has loved all the people he has met. Sweet Pete just couldn't resist chasing the cat, so he needs a home with no kitties. He was better with the little dog he met and just sniffed him politely but was initially interested in him at a distance before he knew what he was. He just needs a careful intro to small dogs that might look like bunnies or squirrels. Sweet Pete's sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and his dam is AMF Blazing Sun. Pete is being fostered with a 6 year old child and really seems to enjoy being around her. We listed him as "older kids only" because he could knock over a toddler accidentally when he was being bouncy, happy and silly. Pete is more energetic and fun than the typical couch potato greyhound. He would be the perfect choice for a family that likes to go for walks or hikes. Sweet Pete will enjoy a more active lifestyle than most. Pete does complain about being in his kennel, so would not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living.

Icon is a gentle 86 lb giant that just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. He never actually raced there but was just sent to their adoption kennel to place with one of the adoption groups they work with. Icon was one of the best racers, getting up to the very top AA level, at the best track in the country- Southland in Arkansas. He also raced at another top track, Wheeling in WV, then Mardi Gras, Dubuque and finally Sarasota. He raced 153 races. Icon broke his leg on January 6th of 2018. He was casted for 6 weeks and put into a soft splint for 2 after that at the track. His splint was removed by the time he got to us and we sent him to Pro Greyhound for rehab. He is finished with that now and has been released for adoption. He will still need a month or two more of reduced activity where he takes it easy on the leg. He shouldn't run around and play with other dogs yet outside for awhile to be sure the leg is very strong. Icon is huge. He raced at a very tall 86lbs. His back comes up to our hip, probably around 31 or 32 inches at the shoulder. Icon has a gorgeous shiny black coat. He is friendly and happy. Icon travels really well and is silent in his crate so may be a good choice to live in an apartment or townhouse. He loves to put his head in your lap for petting and seems pretty calm indoors. Icon can be playful, silly and bouncy outside. Because of his old injury  Icon may not enjoy long hikes. He loves to go for shorter walks though and can easily support his weight and uses his leg. He is a great guy and his foster home just loves his personality. He is a really good guy that seems to want to please and just wants love. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no desire to chase either. He seems to like other dogs and gets along extremely well with the large pack of dogs that his foster home has. He is just a friendly easy going guy that loves everyone he meets. Icon's sire is the very famous DJays Octane and his dam is Silver Idol. He just turned 5 on April 1st.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Erskine Family of Simpsonville SC 4/19/18

Gallant just came in from the Birmingham Race Course. He didn't actually race there, and was sent to the adoption kennel there because they move dogs from many tracks into adoption groups. He raced a total of 60 races at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida and Daytona Beach Florida. He only ever won one race though. He did place some, which kept him racing at the lowest beginner level for awhile. He was retired the end of December and has been waiting on a group to take him since then. Gallant will turn 3 on August 9th. His sire is Aerial Battle and his dam is WW's Kuniya. He was too interested in the cat to be able to live with one. He did fine with the small dog he met though. After only one day in his foster home his foster mom asked if he had lived in a home before. He was perfectly behaved and acted like he was already house trained. As far as we know, he has lived in the kennel, but we don't have a lot of history on him to know for sure. Either way he is a very very good boy that should be an easy, well behaved addition to about any home. He seems to learn fast and want to please. He is very good in his kennel. He loves people and will just stand next to you for love as long as you will pet him. He is a very lovable guy. Gallant was adopted briefly and when he returned to our group his original foster family decided that he should stay with them.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Reich Family of Augusta GA 4/18/18

Gaby just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and was raised on the Bolton Farm near the track. It is a smaller beautiful farm where the dogs get lots of one on one attention. Gaby Is a pretty red girl that raced 179 races at 63lbs. She was a good racer, racing much of her career at the top A level there. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Waubun Brenda. Gaby will turn 5 on June 8th. Gaby is a friendly, happy girl. She passed her cat test easily and seemed like she already knew that cats have claws and refused to go near the kitty. She is also fine with small dogs. Gaby is very sweet and will sit and lean up against the front of your legs for attention. She is a waggy, happy girl that doesn't seem fazed by anything new so seems like she will do well very fast with her new family. She is very loving and just loves to be close to her humans. She did like the small kids she met briefly but has not been around small kids long term yet. She can complain a bit about being in her kennel, so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Gaby is adapting very well to her foster home and is such a beautiful sweet girl!

Fostered by (location):
Llewellyn, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ferguson Family of Augusta GA 4/18/18

Lancelot is a gorgeous big shiny black male that raced at 82 lbs. He just came in from the Birmingham Adoption Kennel but didn't actually race there. He was sent there because they transport dogs to adoption groups across the country. He actually raced 132 races mostly at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced briefly at Palm Beach in FL. He raced most of his career at the mid levels of racing but did get up to the top A level a few times and did win some races. He retired February 12th and has been waiting since then for a group to take him. His sire is Turbo Lennie and his dam is Gable India. Lancelot was way too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them, but he did fine with a small Italian greyhound he met after sniffing it and realizing it was a dog. He should be fine to live with small dogs with a proper introduction. At a distance he tends to mistake most small critters for bunnies though. Lancelot is a big strong boy that needs some work on walking on leash because he wants to check out everything at once. He is very friendly and happy and just a sweet, confident, social guy. Because he is so big and strong we think he would do best in a home with no small kids that he could accidentally knock over. Lancelot could be your knight in shining, black, furry armor! What a gorgeous guy!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Schalk Family of Fairview NC 4/16/18

Reilly is a beautiful black female that raced at 65lbs. She just came in from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel but she never actually raced there. She was sent there because they place a lot of dogs with other adoption groups across the country. She raced at Wheeling Downs in WV and most of her career of 91 races was spent at Palm Beach in FL. She was never a really good racer only getting up to B level once and mostly just placing at the lower levels of racing, rather than winning races. Reilly is a sweet, friendly, girl that is mostly quiet and calm in her crate. She only occasionally makes noise but may not work for apartment living because of that. She seems very well behaved and gets along well with other dogs. She just turned 3 on Feb 16th. Reilly is a friendly girl that has liked everyone she has met. She wanted to chase the cat a little too much so we want to place her in a home with no cats. She did great with the small Italian Greyhound she met though, so should be fine to live in a home with small dogs. She is a very sweet girl with a gorgeous, glossy, black coat. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is KB's College Cat. Reilly has settled into foster care really well and her foster home says she is one of the sweetest girls they have ever had and they have fostered a lot of dogs. They are getting very attached to her and will miss her when she is adopted.

Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McConnell Family of Columbus, NC 4/15/18

*HAS BEEN WAITING ON A HOME THE LONGEST* Tiger Lady is a retired brood mom that had a litter of 7 puppies in 2015 that are already racing and another litter after that that is still on the farm. She is retired from being a mom now and looking for a couch. She is still young and just turned 5 on February 16th. She raced at Southland, Flagler, and Naples Ft Myers but never was really good. In her last race, in April of 2015, she just quit running so was retired right away. She raced at 72lbs so is pretty big for a female. Her sire is Tiger Boy, a famous dog that one of our volunteers owns. Tiger Lady is actually fostered by her dad's owner. Her mom is BA My Charity. Tiger Lady is a calm, laid back girl. She can be a little timid at first with strangers and seems to prefer women over men at first. She does warm up and gets very excited to see her foster dad now though. She seems to like the kids she has met, but because she can be a bit timid, is likely to be overwhelmed living with very loud wild little kids or a lot of kids. She would do better in a quiet home. Lady passed her cat and small dog tests easily and was more cautious around them and not interested in chasing them. She is a very sweet girl that has been available for adoption since November without much interest only because she is a little shy and because black dogs tend to get overlooked and are often the last ones placed. In her picture her nose looks a little crooked, but it is not. She was just sniffing the air. She is a gorgeous, sweet, girl that has been waiting on the right home for a very long time.

Poppy just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. She didn't actually race there but was moved there because they transport a lot of dogs to adoption groups across the country. Poppy is a cute, friendly, brindle girl that just turned 5 on March 15th. She raced 142 races, mostly at Palm Beach but also raced some at Bluffs Run. Poppy raced mostly at the mid level C and B races but did make it up to the top A level one time. Her last race was March 10th of 2018. She raced at 64lbs. Her sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Keen Katy. Poppy was a little interested in the cat when she first saw it, but calmed down after she sniffed it and realized what it was. We think she would be trainable with cats with a careful introduction and she is being fostered in a home with cats. Poppy was fine with the yorkie and italian greyhound that she met and is being fostered with a small dog. She is great on walks and has been settling in to foster care very well. She has been fostered in a townhouse and is pretty quiet in her kennel so may be good for apartment or townhouse living. Poppy is a very sweet girl that is pretty calm and friendly. She is missing about half of one ear due to some rough play with her littermates as a puppy. This just makes her cuter.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Covard family of Granitville SC 4/14/18

Maverick is an older gentleman that is looking for a new home because his previous owner died suddenly. He lived peacefully with 5 other greyhounds there, that have all been placed already, so we do fine in a home with other dogs. Maverick will turn 9 on May 24th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Maverick has been retired and in his home since Dec of 2011. He was known as 'Satin' at the track had a very brief unsuccessful racing career of 23 races and only ever won one of those. He actually stopped running in the middle of one race. He raced a few races at Palm Beach, then a few at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and finally finished up at Orange Park in Jacksonville. His owner tried to find a track that he would be competitive at, but Maverick just didn't have his heart into chasing a lure, so was retired young. He was initially placed by the adoption kennel at the track in Jacksonville and was returned to them when his owner passed away. We picked him up from them on a recent track trip. Maverick raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized male. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and that is where he inherited his cute floppy ears. His dam is Surprise Plan. Maverick is a pretty calm guy that still has very short bursts of playful energy. He has good house manners and is friendly and loving. He is in good health and has had excellent care by his previous owner. Maverick likes kids and has been fine with the small dogs and cats he has met so should be good to live with them. He did live with a number of other dogs in his previous home and gets along well with others. This is a super sweet boy that just wants some love and petting.

Naju just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race track. She raced 45 races, mostly at Palm Beach but also a few at Mardi Gras and Naples Ft Myers. She didn't do real well racing at first, but then suddenly started winning races and won several in a row getting her up to the top A level. After her short winning streak she went back to placing in the tougher, higher level races. She pulled up in her last race on November 22nd and has been at the track since then. She had pulled her back in that race, so was taken out of racing then, rested and rehabbed. She has been at the track since then, in hopes she could return to racing eventually. That didn't happen, so they just decided to retire her. Naju's entire litter were named for cities in Korea. Her sire is SH Avatar and her dam is Party Hardy. Naju passed her cat and small dog tests easily and seemed a little nervous around both and preferred to stay her distance. Naju got up the courage to sniff the small dog eventually but never even wanted to get near the cat. She has been pretty overwhelmed since her arrival and seems like she may be a pretty, timid, shy girl. Sometimes they come around quickly after they settle in so we should know more soon. Naju will turn 3 on July 11th.

Rip just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler, Mardi Gras, and Gulf. He got up to B level at several tracks and was moved around to find the place he would be the most competitive. His last race was in November and he was retired because of a sore Tensor Fascia in his hip. It is long healed and Rip is a bouncy, happy boy that does the greyhound grin when excited. He has a lot of personality and the most beautiful shiny black coat. He is a shorter, stocky guy that raced at 77lbs. He looks like a body builder with all his muscles, even after not racing for many months. Ripper is a gorgeous guy that just turned 4 on March 3rd. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is KB's Best Crunch. Rip was very interested in the cat when he met it but after a smack from the cat decided he didn't want to chase cats anymore. He may be trainable with supervision and a confident cat. He is very friendly and bouncy and higher energy than typical. He whines a little in his crate so may not be the best for apartment living but has quieted down nicely in his foster home with time. Rip is very devoted to his people and very good on leash. He often walks in nearly the perfect heel position staring up into your eyes like an obedience dog. He seems to mind well and tries hard to please. He is a wonderful guy that seems to like kids. He has adjusted well to foster care and is good with the other dogs small and large in his foster home. He just has the sweetest personality.

Fostered by (location):
Lundberg, Augusta GA Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Brazelton Family of Grovetown GA. 4/4/18

Shades just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She has 99 races listed and also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV. She was a very good racer that got up to A level at Wheeling, which is quite the accomplishment, since it is a fast track. Her last race was Nov 9th and she finished so far back that she was out of the picture. When you see Shades you understand where her name came from. She has brindle spots over each eye that look a lot like sunglasses and she is mostly white otherwise. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Briecat. Shades will turn 4 on May 28th and raced at 62lbs. Shades passed her cat test with only a little initial curiosity about them so should do OK with some initial supervision. She also passed her small dog test and spent the weekend with a small dog in a home and was fine. Shades can be grumpy about her space and doesn't care for kids invading her space, so will need a home with no little kids. She has gotten along fine playing with other dogs in her foster home but doesn't like other dogs coming around her when she is eating or laying down. She is a beautiful girl and seems to know it. She can be a bit of a diva. She loves adults and will seek out affection by putting her head in your lap to be petted and her preference is to be with her people if she is awake. She is very laid back and calm and does nap a lot. She does roo if left alone in her crate so may not be the best dog for apartment living. We found out on a recent walk that Shades loves water and will walk right into a lake or stream to cool off even if the water is pretty cold.
