Gladiator just retired from the Orlando track. He is a gorgeous, red brindle male with white toes, chest and white tail tip that raced at 75lbs. He just turned 4 on July 14th. Gladiator was a good racer that raced in 100 races. He actually competed in a couple of stakes races and raced at 7 tracks. He is a happy, friendly guy but is a calm, well behaved guy too. Gladiator's sire is the famous Craigie Whistler. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track but did show a little interest at first in the outdoor cats at his foster home so we listed him as trainable with cats. He has done great on his potty training in his foster home and responds very well to the word "No" the rare times that he needs to be corrected. He did great with a house full of visiting children last week and seems to like kids. He likes to play with toys by throwing them up a few times. Then he is ready for another nap. He loves to lay outside in the sun. Gladiator seems like he might be a good watch dog because he will sometimes alert you when he sees his own reflection in a window at night. He is pretty sure that other dog is up to no good. He is normally quiet in his crate and crates willingly. He is a very good boy and seems to have adjusted to life in a home with no problem at all. He is a great guy!

Adoption Status: Congratulations Householder Family of Charlotte 11/11/12

Mac has been retired for about a couple of months due to a badly broken leg. He had to have surgery on it and had to have a temporary metal rod attached to the outside of the leg to hold it in place while the bone heals. He will be a resident at our vets office until the temporary metal rod is removed which will be late October. He won't be able to be adopted until late October or early Nov when the vet clears him to go home. Mac will never have full use of his leg but it will still be useful for balance. He will probably always walk with a limp but will probably be able to run very well just using his 3 good legs. Mac is a super sweet friendly guy that loves everyone he meets. He has been a wonderful patient and loves all the attention he gets from the vet staff. If you are interested in meeting him he can have visitors at the vet. A family interested in adopting Mac could put him pending until he is cleared for actual adoption. Mac is a joint effort between our group and Greyhound Pets of America Electric City who took him in initially and funded most of his very expensive surgery. We thank many generous donors including his racing owner and trainer, the Jacksonville Race Track Adoption Kennel and even fans at the track that saw the injury happen that have also helped cover his surgery and months of vet care. Everyone has pulled together to help this very special guy. Mac's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is BF Oxbow Ruby. He just celebrated his 3rd birthday on August 22nd.

He crates nicely and is quiet in his crate so might do OK in an apartment or townhome. Fitz is a great guy that passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gibbs family 11/6/12

Alan is an eight year old boy that is very sweet, calm and well behaved. He is a light brindle with beautiful golden eyes. Alan has so much white in his fur already that he looks like a blue brindle. He has lived in a home for years and was returned with his housemate Fargo because his owner's severe health problems made it impossible for him to care for the dogs anymore. He lived with quite a few other dogs in the home of several different breeds and was good with all of them. He is good with small dogs and passed his cat test so should be fine living with either. Alan and Fargo are in separate foster homes and seem to be doing fine being separated so we will adopt them out separately unless someone wants both of them. Alan is a perfect gentleman and just wants snuggle up and lean on you. He would probably make an awesome therapy dog because of his gentle, calm, friendly nature and because he loves children. Because he has lived in a home for years, Alan is not used to being crated and can be a little vocal about it. He is well behaved out of the crate however so may not need one. Alan is an extra large male and weighed in at the vets at 92lbs and is not fat. Don't let his size worry you though. He is very good on leash and very easy to handle. He is so laid back and really a gentle giant of a guy. He did great at his first meet and greet going up to everyone for love, especially the children. This sweet guy will really steal your heart. Alan has a clean bill of health from our vet and is ready to go home. He just had a fresh dental and got all his shots.

Lucas just arrived from the Jacksonville Race Track and is a very friendly boy. He made sure he greeted and got love from everyone of the vet's staff when he arrived. This guy loves people, especially the ladies! He is a littermate to one of the dogs we recently adopted out named Speedo. His sire is Deerfield Site and his dam is Steffie's Charm. Lucas celebrates his birthday on May 22nd and is 4 years old.  He raced at 69lbs so is a smaller male weight wise but is pretty tall and lanky. This is a sweet handsome guy with the most beautiful dark orange brindle coat. Just stunning. He had a tail injury so had to have his tail amputated but his short waggy tail stub suits him. He is one of those very waggy greyhounds that can't seem to keep their tail because they whack it on everything. He still had his tail in his photo and you can see it is wagging like crazy. Lucas foster family has fallen in love with him and he is pending to them.

Country Comfort is a small, outgoing fawn boy with half a tail. He is a Tony's Oracle pup a bunch of others we have placed that have been awesome pets. His birthdate is 9/24/2009 so he just turned 3. He is a small male that raced at 67lbs in Orlando. He is more tan and brownish than orange or red. A very pretty color. He travels very well. A very nice boy that seems happy and friendly and hasn't met a stranger. His racing trainer said that he is a smart guy and learned how to lift the gate latch and let himself and other dogs back into the kennel from the turnout pen. He did it several times before they fixed it so he couldn't. He did it at the vet's office after we got him too. Country is a very calm laid back boy that has been a wonderful foster. He isn't a marker and potty trained easily. He can be a little vocal in his crate when left alone so wouldn't be the best dog for apartment or townhouse living. He crates OK when no one is home but if he hears people he will make noise to get let out of the crate. He does growl at dogs that come close when he is eating but so far that has not been directed at humans. We automatically mark dogs "no small kids" if they show any protective behaviors at all even if not directed at people. He should be cat trainable but was interested a little at first according to his cat test at the track. He did loose interest in them after he met them. Country has been fostered with very small dogs and has been fine with them so should do well in a home with them.

Brooker raced years ago in Orlando. His sire is Craigie Booker and his dam is Windy Wendy. Brooker is a small gorgeous boy. He has been in a home for years and was surrendered to us because he had some grumpiness over his space that concerned his owners that were new parents. They didn't think he would be good with a toddler. He has been in foster care and so far we have not seen any grumpiness over space whatsoever even though we have bothered him when laying down and sleeping. Because of his owners saying he had some space issues in the past we put him down as needing a home with no small kids. He has been nothing but calm, sweet and well behaved since he arrived though. Brooker is very friendly and waggy so much so that he injured his tail while wagging and had to have it removed. He is a leaner that will put his head in your lap for love and just stand there as long as you are willing to pet him. Brooker is very cat friendly showing no interest in them even when they are running around outside. He crates well and seems to be a great guy that is already home acclimated. He crates well and quietly so might be a good choice for a townhome or apartment. He loves to play with toys and is a very young 7. With his great looks and sweet personality we think he will find a home quickly.

Jason never raced and has lived in a home as a pet his entire life. He is an extra large male that weighed 89lbs at the vet. He is calm and well behaved even though he is only 2 years old and seems to have good house manners. Jason is a confident guy and has adjusted quickly to foster care. He doesn't seem to be bothered by much. He crates well and is quiet in his crate. So far he has not tried to play with the other dogs in his foster home (all males). His former owner said he did best with her dominant females. He did play too rough with the younger dogs and could get bossy with them but the more dominant females set him straight and he was very respectful of them. He might do best in a home with dominant females and seems like he would also be fine as an only dog. Jason is VERY loving and sweet with adults and absolutely LOVES attention. He will follow you around and likes to be with people. Very very sweet and calm for such a young guy. He hasn't been around many kids and so far and isn't too sure about them and tends to avoid them. He is pretty good on leash most of the time but because he is young still gets a little excited in new situations and needs reminders not to pull. Jason is a drop dead gorgeous guy that has the most beautiful shiny coat! We got Jason because he played too rough and was bossy with a few of the dogs in his former home. He lived with small dogs in his previous home and is doing fine with a small white dog in his foster home now. Because he is still young, big and plays rough, he probably wouldn't be a good choice for a home with a very tiny dog unless it was a female that would make it very clear that she didn't want to play with him.

Fats is a special boy that was born with an abnormally short nose that is a bit crooked...well OK maybe a lot crooked. He thinks those things make him extra special and a true "one of a kind", and he is right. He is actually very cute with his unusual tiny little greyhound nose and definitely stands out in a crowd. Fats is a really sweet guy that loves everyone he meets and will just snuggle up for petting as long as you will pet him. He is very calm and well behaved. He does the cutest little snuffle and snort when he gets excited because of his nose. He travels well and on the trip up from the track just laid down and made himself comfortable. He even rolled over on his back and slept with his feet sticking up in the air in the van. Fats has some serious personality going on and is a very sweet, funny guy. He passed his cat test at the track too! So far he seems like he is a pretty laid back, low energy guy. He loves to play with toys and will play bow and act silly to get you to play with him. He is very gentle and his play sessions only last for a short time though. His sire is EM's Mac Attack and his Dam is Flirtnabout. His birthday is March 7th. Fats got sent to quite a few tracks in hopes he would find a place that he could be competitive. His crooked nose seems to affect his breathing a bit and he just wasn't able to be competitive and only was able to win one race in his career. Fats is fine running and playing with other dogs but tended to overheat at the track when he really ran hard in competition. This is such a sweet, easy, well behaved boy that seems to adjust well and fit right into just about any situation.

Country Gift is a friendly girl that followed her trainers around the kennel while they were doing their chores. She is a very people oriented girl and very sweet. GIft seems like the type that will enjoy running around the yard and playing with toys - a fun girl. She has enough energy for an occasional jog or hike with her family. Gift has a beautiful rich red brindle coat with white feet and tip of tail that really makes her a showy stunning girl. She was very interested in chasing the cat during her cat test at the track kennel so has too much prey drive to live in a home with cats. We will do further testing with small dogs to see how she does with them. She needs a little work on walking on leash because she pulls some but seems better already with just a little instruction. A fast learner. Gift raced at 67lbs and will be 4 August 25. Update from her foster home! Gift has been wonderful since moving into retirement. She has wonderful dog body language and moved into her foster pack with no problems at all, quickly and quietly accepting the greetings from the home dogs. She potties perfectly on leash and has already learned to be much more polite while being walked. She has been accident--free inside, crates easily, eats and takes her surgery antibiotics without complaint, and has been a wonderful houseguest. Gift would make a really wonderful choice as a first greyhound as well as acclimating quickly into an existing pack. We have no way to test her in the home with small dogs, but her responses during the vet stay didn't show any prey drive toward them (We do know she isn't cat safe). Gift is a truly beautiful dog with a sweet temperament that's ready to go home! Gift has complained a bit when left alone so probably wouldn't be the best dog for apartment or townhouse living.

He has gotten along well with the other greyhounds and a boxer in his foster home and did very well with the kids he met at a meet and greet. He crates well and corrects easily if he does anything wrong. Seems like a great guy! More as we get to know him.

Bear is a very large boy that raced at 80lbs. He just celebrated his 3rd birthday on May 24th. He is nearly all white with 3 small brindle spots on his side, tail and one ear. Bear loves everyone and gives kisses. He has an awesome, happy, friendly personality and is very goofy and silly. He follows his family around and can always be found close by if not laying at your feet. Not much bothers him and he loves everyone. Although he loves playing with kids and being around them most of the time, he has shown that he really doesn't like kids in his face or bothering him when he is laying down. Because of that we think Bear will do best in a home without small kids. He seems like he has a little too much prey drive toward cats to be able to live with them and did not pass his cat test at the track. He has been fine with a small, white dog that lived in one of his foster homes though so he seems like will be good in a home with small dogs. Bear corrects easily and all you have to do is tell him not to do something once or twice and he stops for good. This is a stunning guy with such a great personality!

Haley just arrived and is a sweet, friendly girl that will roll over to get her belly rubbed. She was born on June 3rd and is 5 years old and is a smaller girl that raced at 57lbs. Haley is mostly white with some black spots and freckles. Her sire is Jimbo Scotty and her dam is HFK Lacey. Her foster home says she loves to snuggle and is very well behaved. She comes when called and is quiet in her crate and walks well on leash. She goes potty on leash so would do OK in a home without a fenced yard if they are willing to walk her. Haley has the cutest personality, always smiling and happy to see you. She passed her cat test at the vets office with only a little curiosity but never got too excited.

Sally raced at the Jacksonville Race Track at 60lbs. She is a well behaved sweet girl that is very outgoing and social. During the trip home she was very sure that she needed to help drive or at least be in a lap in the front seat. Sally's birthday is November 1st and she is two and a half years old. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Greys Storm Gust. Her foster mom says she is a smart girl and is pretty playful. She has been living with a 4lb dog and really wants to get him to play with her. She is a bit too big for that, but corrects easily with just a word and is learning that she isn't allowed to run and play with the very small ones. She enjoys chewing on rawhides, bones and antlers and crates well. Sally is so smart, responsive and wants to please that she might be a good candidate for someone wanting a dog to do obedience or agility with. She has already learned several commands in her foster home! Sally is very friendly, sweet and loving and seems like she will be a fantastic pet. She passed her cat test but was a little interested in the cats at first so we have her listed as cat trainable. What a cutie!! Sally does have a few scars on her from her littermates playing too rough with her as puppies but she considers them beauty marks that make her even more special.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Blackwell Family of Spartanburg 8/18/12

Baker is a small girl that never finished the registration process to race so doesn't have an official racing name. She didn't race either and was retired when she was still just in training. She did start the registration process and has the ear tattoos that are done around 3 months old so we know who her parents are. She turns 2 in August. She should weigh around 63lbs but doesn't have an official racing weight. She is a little shy at first and her owner chose to just let her go into adoption rather than race her. She just arrived from the Jacksonville Race Track where she had been in training. Bakeris timid at first if you approach her fast. If you sit down she will come up and seek out affection. She seems like she really does want to be around people and enjoys being loved but just needs a little bit to warm up. She has been to one meet and greet so far and would go up to most people for love and seemed to prefer the children. Only a few people made her nervous so it looks like she will be a pretty friendly girl with a little more socializing. Baker picked up on potty training right away and is already comfortable enough in her foster home to play with toys - she really loves her toys! Baker is a gorgeous little, dark brindle girl that passed her cat test at the track and is living in a foster home with a small dog and cats. Her sire is Beyond the Chill and her dam is Teresa Jar.

He seems to like kids and chose to go up to children at a PetSmart meet and greet. He is a friendly sweet little guy. His sire is Swahili Eile and his dam is To Shy to Say. We got Blade very young and he didn't have much of a race career but did go through some training to race.

She had a broken leg as a young pup so never raced. We got her directly from the farm she grew up on as a young dog. She has been living with her littermate Blade in a home for a couple of years now and is already home acclimated and well behaved. Their owner is suddenly having to travel weekly for work and was forced to give up the dogs because of all the time she has to spend away from them.

Fox is a littermate to Jojo Girl and My Favorite which we also placed. His birthday is October 1st. His trainers said Fox was a quiet, calm and friendly. Fox would follow them around while they were doing chores and would choose to be with people over other dogs. He was good with other dogs too though. He is good with the small dogs he has been around and passed his most recent cat test. Fox crates well and loves to play with toys. He has the cutest puppyish face and the most beautiful shiny black coat. He is really stunning. Fox is the whole package, gorgeous good looks and a great easy going personality to match. His foster home just raved about what a good boy he is. He would be great for the first time greyhound adopter or would be a good addition to a home with several dogs already.

Gracie is home acclimated and has been in a home for several years since she retired from the track. Her birthday is Feb 20th and she is 6 years old. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is Moon Mt Treasure. Gracie walks and potties beautifully on a leash so would be fine with a family without a fenced back yard. She is safe with everything and has lived with cats and small dogs before. She crates wonderfully with no noise, and is very content on a dog bed. She has the cutest windmill tail, it doesn't just wag back and forth, she gets it cranked up and it might as well be a fan! Gracie is very calm and quiet. Her story has a new chapter, because she's coming back to our group in the hopes of finding her another location that suits her quiet tendancies better. Her current family loves her, but they feel she never became comfortable with their active lifestyle. Gracie, as they call her now, is a wonderful girl who needs a more low-key environment. She is good with kids but has been choosing to stay in the bedroom rather than being out with the family so her family thinks a home without small rowdy kids might make her more comfortable. If you're looking for a home-acclimated, well behaved girl, she's waiting for you!

Kiki raced at 66lbs and her birthday is Feb 1st 2002. She is one of the most affectionate dogs to ever visit her foster home! She's one of those greyhounds that truly wants to be part of your life. She is the type of dog that people dream of, one that will follow you around from room to room and lay down calmly next to you to keep you company. She's completely clean in the house, crates immediately at the request to 'go to bed' and loves to get up and relax on the couch with you. A true couch potato. Kiki has the sweetest little long face and expressive ears that fold forward whenever she's excited about something. Her foster family has noticed her ability to pick up new commands very quickly and she is highly motivated to make her humans happy. Kiki has a bit too much prey drive to be considered safe with cats.

Kiki has been in a home before and has excellent house manners. Unfortunately she was dumped at an animal shelter. We are lucky they called us so we could find her another home. She has been returned to the care of the excellent foster home who had her before she was adopted. Because she is a senior girl Kiki qualifies for a reduced adoption fee!! Kiki has a clean bill of health without any known problems from being a slightly-older girl.This is a great girl that comes already home acclimated. All she needs is a couch and someone to love her back.

She likes to play with balls and was comfortable enough to start playing as soon as she arrived in her foster home so Amy seems like an outgoing girl that will adjust very well to new situations.

Snowflake is quiet and well behaved and stops doing anything you don't want her to do with just a "No". She passed her cat and small dog tests at that track and has been great with the small dog and the child in her foster home. She is such a pretty girl with a gorgeous shiny coat!

Adoption Status: Adopted to Dalton Family of Murrells Inlet SC 7/30/12

Tucker is a very light fawn male with light colored tips on his fur that the folks at the track referred to as "champagne colored". He is a tall guy that raced at 76lbs. His birthday is March 25th and he is 2 years old. He is a Kiowa Mon Manny Pup so is half brother to some other dogs we have adopted out. Tucker is a super friendly, happy boy that has a tail that wags most of the time. He gets so excited to see everyone and bounces happily which can be a little overwhelming for toddlers and younger kids. He likes kids but is a little too enthusiastic to see kids sometimes so we think he should live with older kids only. We are working on teaching calmer greetings.  Tucker is very young at just two and greyhounds tend to mature slowly so he still has a lot of fun pup in him. He was very bad walking on leash when he arrived because he is strong, curious and wanted to check everything out. He is much better now but still needs some reminders when he gets excited. He has done great with the small dog in his foster home and others he has met so would probably do fine in a home with smaller pets. He also passed a couple of cat tests with no interest. Tucker is always happy and seems like he will make a fun pet for some lucky family. He is quiet in his crate and potties quickly on leash so may be OK in an apartment or townhouse. He is young and still pretty energetic so will need to go to a safely fenced area to run a couple times a week or he will need to go on walks or jogs to drain his energy if he doesn't have a fenced yard to play in. Tucker wants to please and readily offers behaviors trying to figure out what you want him to do. He already has learned lay down in his crate on command before being let out. He picked up on potty training right away. He really shines at meet and greets and goes up to each person that comes by giving kisses and leaning into them for love. If you want a happy, friendly, waggy, young boy this is the guy! RIght now his personality is more lab like than greyhound like. Such a sweet guy!!

Tucker crossed the bridge due to bone cancer as a very young dog within a year of being adopted.

Kia is a red brindle girl that actually grins when she is happy or excited. She is a tiny girl that raced at 55lbs and she just celebrated her 4th birthday on May 11th. We met her at the racing kennel in Orlando awhile back and just fell in love with her sweet, calm but friendly personality and that grin was just the most precious thing! We told them we wanted her when she retired. She is a Lonesome Cry daughter so half sister to a bunch of dogs we have placed. She did not pass her cat test at the track so will need a home without cats but she did fine in a foster home with a small white dog so should be OK living with small dogs. Kia seems to like her crate and goes in on her own and is very quiet in her crate. She also potties great on leash so may do well as an apartment or townhouse dog. She did great at a recent meet and greet with everyone she met but seemed to be most drawn to older women. She plays gently with toys mainly carrying them around. This is a sweet well behaved girl.

He us a super sweet guy! His sire is B's O'Grady and his dam is Scare De Cat. He passed his cat and small dog test with no interest so should be fine in a home with either.

He needed a little work on leash because he pulled some but is already doing better. They said he was a calm, well behaved guy at the kennel and so far that is what his foster home has found.

Catfish will celebrate his 3rd birthday on August 1st. Hopefully he can celebrate his birthday in his new home. Catfish passed his cat test with absolutely no interest in the cat and ended up being OK with the guinea pigs in his foster home with a few reminders. He is living with a small baby in his foster home and seems to be fine with her too. This tall guy is just stunning and so sweet! His foster home has taken him jogging and he seems to enjoy that. He is starting to play with toys now and his playful side is really coming out.

His sire is Flying Hydrogen who one of our board members just adopted so the lucky family that gets T will be able to meet his dad too!! He is a sweet, laid back, well behaved boy that is gentle and wonderful with kids and would be excellent in a home with small dogs since he has lived with them before. He is friendly and gets along with everyone. He passed his cat test at the track but has shown some interest in cats he has met but we think he may be trainable.

Stimulus is a very large, dark brindle male that raced at 80lbs. He has the most beautiful, shiny, dark mahogany looking coat and is just stunning with his white feet and chest. He is a calm but friendly boy that just celebrated his 3rd birthday on April 4th. His sire is the famous Dodgem By Design so he has a lot of half brothers and sisters that we have adopted out. He is a littermate to another dog we just adopted out named Eureka. Stimulus let himself out of his run to join his sister Eureka at the vet clinic. He was out all night with the vet clinic cat and didn't chase him or hurt him. He passed his cat test at the track and subsequent cat tests that we have done. In the middle of all of these very positive results with cats he did become interested in chasing cats he met in one home. It was only that one time and was definitely because he had gotten excited by chasing toys right before being introduced to the cats. We have him listed as "trainable" because of that even though he has shown no interest whatsoever in cats before or since. Stimulus did great at a meet and greet at Petco and seemed to enjoy all the attention. He has started playing with toys in his foster home and will throw them and chase them. He lives with a tiny dog that is squirrel sized and fast moving in his current foster home so seems like an exceptionally low prey drive dog that would be good in any home. He likes the kids he has met and seems like he would be a wonderful family dog. He is a big guy but he is gentle, calm and well behaved so seems like he will be an easy guy that would make a wonderful family pet. He has been living with a very small dog and a large bird in his foster home and is fine with both of them now.

He was a very successful racer that won a lot of races and raced a long time. He crates well and quietly so might be OK as an apartment or townhouse dog. His foster mom was sick recently and he layed right by her side the entire time watching over her. He is just so sweet! He is very good with children.This is a dog that was suggested to us as one that would be a good family dog because he has been around the children of his racing trainer often and was very good with them. Even though he is calm he does have a silly side and is likely to play bow to you trying to get you to play with him. The play only lasts for a little while because Hot Dog is a typical greyhound couch potoato. Hot Dog needs a home without cats. He has been fine with the small to medium sized dogs he has met at meet and greets. He loves to play with other dogs though so might do better in a home without very tiny dogs just because he might accidentally step on one when playing. Typically our non cat friendly dogs take months longer to adopt than our cat friendly ones. If you do not have cats please consider adopting one of our sweet non cat safe dogs like Hot Dog.

Gavin is a gorgeous guy that turned 3 on Nov 4th. He raced at 76lbs. He is doing well in his foster home with the small dogs and cats there so would be excellent for a home with small animals. Gavin loves playing with toys and the other dogs in his foster home. Although he is very shy, he warmed up to his foster family quickly and is very loving with his foster family. His trainers at the racing kennels said that he became very affectionate once he got to know them too and was only very shy initially. We think that a home without young, noisy children would be better for Gavin because of his shyness. It is only because of his shyness, Gavin is such a sensitive, gentle guy that we are sure he would never harm anyone or anything. While he has warmed up to his foster family quickly, he still tends to run away from visitors and people he doesn't know, so a quiet home without a lot of visitors and activity would probably suit him best. Gavin is likely to always be a real homebody that will be nervous out of his comfort zone. New things just make him very nervous. Because timid dogs tend to bolt when scared Gavin's ideal home would have a safely fenced yard for him to play in. Gavin's shyness is caused by not being handled by new people and exposed to new things as a puppy during that brief socialization window. He was never abused in any way and actually was very attached to his trainers. Gavin wants his family to know that even if he gets nervous and runs away the first time he meets them, he has a lot of love to give if they will just give him a little time to come out of his shell. Gavin is SUCH a sweet, loveable guy and is just gorgeous. If you have patience and a little time Gavin will reward you with all of his love. This is such a sweet, gorgeous, well behaved boy! Be sure to click on his other pictures. He is very photogenic and his foster home has taken lots of pictures of him.

Fostered by (location):
Greenwood, SC (Owens)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fitch Family of Tryon, NC 6/17/12

At her most recent racing kennel they called her Gazelle, but at a previous racing kennel at another track they called her Monica. We will have to see which name she seems to know. She is a small girl that raced at 57lbs. She turned 3 on April 18th and is a brindle female that just retired from the Orlando race track because of a minor muscle pull which is completely healed now. While she was at the vet she got a leg caught in a dog run and had to have some additional stitches so is recovering from another injury now. She is not limping from her most recent injury but does have a small open spot on her leg that was not able to be stitched so that has to be healed over before she can be adopted. Monica is outgoing, sweet, and cute with enough playful energy to keep up with an active family. Kissy sounds and any attention at all will send her into wiggles of pure joy! This is a tiny little girl that LOVES everyone she meets! She is a Deerfield Site daughter. Here is an old photo that was taken of her last year at the track. New photos coming soon!!

Toy just celebrated his 2nd birthday on March 7th. He is a brindle male with gorgeous golden eyes that raced at 76lbs. His Sire is Heart Rumble. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the Orlando track and has been fostered with a cat that he is fine with. Toy seems like he is just a bit shy at first but is one that will warm up fast. He has done well at meet and greets and is warming up. He seems to be fine with the kids that have been around him at meet and greets although he doesn't have children in his foster home. So far he has been a very good boy that will make an awesome pet.

Molly is a gorgeous, red girl that is very friendly. Her sire is Gable Tobasco and her Dam is Bee Bee. Molly will celebrate her 4th birthday on June 23rd. She is a very tiny petite girl. Her trainers said she was sweet and well behaved at the track and she has been that way in foster care as well. Molly is good on leash and rarely pulls. She is sweet and friendly and always greets you with a wagging tail and is happy to see you even if she barely knows you. She is great at meet and greets calmly going from one person to another to greet them. At a recent meet and greet she curled up with her head on her foster dad's lap and went to sleep. This was at a very noisy convention center with a lot going on around her. She seems like she will be pretty comfortable in just about any situation. She has gotten along well with the other dogs in her foster home and seems to just have a sweet happy go lucky personality. This is one stunning girl too! She was too interested in chasing the cat to pass her cat test but has been OK with small dogs in two foster homes. Molly doesn't potty on leash well so must have a home with a fenced yard to potty in. She just needs a little privacy to do her business and needs to walk around a bit to find the perfect spot. This is a super sweet girl that will be a great pet. Because she is not cat safe Molly has been in foster care longer than others which is typical. If you don't have cats in your home please consider adopting one our non cat friendly dogs like Molly.
