Nita Break - don't you just love that name! Nita was born Jan 7th 2008 and raced at 61lbs. Although Nita was pretty shy at first, now she is an affectionate, loving girl with her foster family. Nita follows her foster family around and initiates play with them - but still can be a little timid with strangers. This adorable, little girl has lived in a foster home with small dogs and cats so should do fine in an adoptive home with them. Nita loves to play with stuffed animals and a plain teddy bear is her favorite. She will toss her bear up and play all by herself if no one will toss it for her. She avoids shiny floors and stairs if she can. Nita is such a stunning red brindle and seems like she will be a wonderful pet for a very lucky family!

Fostered by (location):
(Canfield) Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Greer/Lacy, 10.2.11

Deacon is a young, unusually light fawn male with lots of black on his face and cute little floppy dark ears. Deacon is a medium sized guy that raced at 71lbs. He is playful and LOVES stuffed animals and balls with squeakers! He is very friendly and walks like a dream on leash without pulling. He seems eager to please and is very bonded to people and likes to stand right beside you with his head in your lap. If you are cooking in the kitchen or watching TV he will be laying at your feet. He barked a little in his crate at first but did correct easily so was able to be fostered in a townhouse and should be fine living in a townhome or an apartment. He is good with children and loves everyone he meets. He has gotten along well with dogs of all sizes in his foster homes including very small dogs. He has met some cats in cages at Petco and was politely curious but not overly excited. He has not been around free roaming cats yet but it looks like he may be able to live with them. We would be glad to introduce him to your cats carefully to make sure before he is adopted. Seems like he is going to be a sweet, happy, devoted addition for some lucky family.

New York is a happy, outgoing boy that likes people and does well with other dogs. SO cute - just look at those sweet eyes! He followed his racing trainer around while doing chores and quickly became a favorite of his. He is doing great in his foster home and is a really sweet, happy guy. He has enough energy to be a fun guy but has been perfectly behaved and tries to please. He loves the grandkids in is foster home so should be good for a family with them. New York should be perfect in just about any situation. He raced at 69lbs so is on the small side for a male and has the prettiest red brindle coat. He just turned 2 on May 20th so is a young guy. He passed his cat and small dog tolerance tests so should be able to live with either and is living with some cats in his foster home. He crates quietly and potties on leash well so may do well in an apartment or townhouse. He loves to play with toys. Stuffed animals with squeakers are his favorite. You are going to love New York!

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Roberts (Columbia SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Fogle, 10.1.11

Grumbler is not grumbly or grumpy at all. He is actually very friendly and loving. We think he got his name from the sound he makes when he he needs to go outside - kind of like the hamburgler in the McDonalds commercials - "rabble, rabble". Grumbler is an extra large greyhound, a gorgeous red brindle male that raced at 83lbs. He has an unusual slightly roman nose. Grumblers birthday is March 29th, 2008 so he is 3 years old.His foster home describes him as playful but pretty laid back and no trouble at all. He is a huge guy with long legs that is one of the tallest greyhounds his foster home has ever had. If you like big dogs this is your greyhound! He walks nicely on leash and potties on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard if his family was willing to walk him. In spite of his size he is easily corrected when he sees something interesting on a walk like a squirrel. He settled into home life very well and has done great on potty training since he makes the cute grumbly noise to let you know when he needs to go out. He gets along very well with other greyhounds male and female. He is a confident, happy guy that wags his tail a lot and will stand and let you pet him for as long as you are willing. Grumbler did great with kids and adults at a recent meet and greet and seemed to do OK with small dogs over 20lbs. He still needs to be tested with cats. Grumbler loves to roll around and play with toys and is usually found roaching on the living room rug! He may need some time to adjust if he would be a single pet, as he's used to having his foster-buddy around, and seems to be much happier when they can be together. He loves to show his appreciation and affection by hopping around when he's excited, coming up for ear rubs and body scratches, and talking in the funniest voice his foster family has ever heard! He will talk to you about how happy he is to go for walk, eat, or just to play. Grumbler came to us from a good owner and racing kennel and has always been treated well. You can tell from his sweet personality and love of people. He is a healthy guy that is neutered and ready to go home.

Peeler is a medium sized, brindle guy with lots of white trim that raced at 73lbs. His birthday is May 21st. He is one happy guy and is so silly that his name kind of fits. He is good with the cat in his foster home. He is very smart and wants to please. He has learned house manners after just being told once or twice. He seems to instinctually understand hand signals. His foster home thinks he might be a good dog for someone that wanted to train for competition obedience or agility. He is great with the children in his foster home (3 and 7 years old) He crates quietly and doesn't fuss about being in there although he prefers to be out. He is a velcro dog and likes to be near you. He likes to play with squeaky toys and will collect them and put him on his dog bed. He walks great on leash and loves to give kisses! His foster home says Onion Peeler is such a great guy that he would be a keeper if they didn't already have 4 greyhounds.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted Dunne family of Keighley, England 9/25/11

Clown is an economic return from a family who has fallen into difficult times. He was originally adopted from a group in Rhode Island which we've been told has closed but we'll check that as soon as we can. Clown is a nicely-mannered, sweet boy that gets along with everything and everyone. He was living peacefully with other dogs as small as a Yorkie in his previous home. He loves to ride and quickly lies down in the car to enjoy the sights through the back window. Although he doesn't sit on command, he does a beautiful 'down' and will do that automatically when inside with his humans. Testing for cats and children will be done as soon as possible, but given what's been seen of this awesome dog, we would expect him to be wonderful with everything in the world around him.He qualifies for the special adoption fee of $200.

Clowny was adopted by some volunteers that had moved to England but ended up in the states when they moved back. He performed with the Hounds of East Fairhaven at the Georgia and Carolina Renaissance Festivals until he crossed the bridge.

Cobb is a sweet friendly medium sized guy that raced at 73lbs. His birthday is Feb 25th, 2008. He was a huge hit at his first meet and greet going to each person to get attention. He loved the kids he met too and seemed very tolerant. Cobb crates quietly day or night. He likes to play and was comfortable enough in his foster home to start playing right away. He likes to throw stuffed animals then pounces on them. He hasn't payed much attention to the small dogs or cats in his foster home so seems like he could live with either. Cobb is healthy, neutered and ready to go home. He seems like the type of greyhound that would do great with a first time greyhound adopter or one with a house full of greyhounds. His foster home says he is one awesome greyhound. Cobb came from a very good racing kennel that takes great care of their elite athletes.

Adoption Status: Adopted Dorrington Williams family of Pickens 9/17/11

Stan is one of the largest greyhounds that we have received at nearly 90lbs. He is a sweet, loving guy that is very calm and very laid back for a young guy. He very walks nicely on leash. Stan has lived with small dogs and cats while in foster care so should be fine living with either in his adoptive home. We have adopted out quite a few of Stan's sisters and brothers and they have been well behaved and calm too. One of his sisters is even a therapy dog. Some of Stan's favorite things are to playing with toys and laying upside down on dog beds with all his feet in the air. His very favorite thing is to lean up against his person for love and follow his people around. Stan is great at stairs but doesn't potty on leash well so must have a home with a fenced yard. He is not a marker so was a breeze to potty train. Stan is a very loving guy that wants nothing more than to be with his people and will be a very devoted guy. He seems like he has some separation anxiety but just needs another dog in his home so he won't be totally alone when his humans leave. Because he tends to fuss when left he would not be a good dog for an apartment or townhouse. If you are looking for a gorgeous, big, super loveable guy Stan is your man! Stan came from a racing kennel that takes great care of their dogs.

Story is a gorgeous, shiny, black girl that loves people. She will celebrate her 3rd birthday on September 21st. She loves following her foster dad around and always can be found laying at his feet. She loves playing with toys and loves to play with other dogs. She is exceptionally tolderant of a puppy in her foster home and loves to play with him. Story is quiet and very sweet and was a little timid when she first arrived but got over that quickly. She picked up potty training quickly. This is a wonderful, home-acclimated dog who is ready to go immediately into a new home but just needs a home with another dog to hang out with because she gets stressed if left totally alone. When left with another dog she is fine. Story has lived with a young baby and 6 year-old boy so would be excellent in a home with children.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the McManis family of Easley SC, 9.11.11

Princess is a beautiful almost all white girl that has just a bit of brindle over one eye, her tail and a bit on her ears. Her birthday is October 1st 2004. Sadly she is a Economy Return, available again through no fault of her own. This is her 4th return and none have been her fault. The first was because another dog in the home didn't like her, the second was because she became terrified to go outside after being attacked by a loose dog, and the last two have been economic returns. The families have said she is an angel with no behavior problems at all. This is a sweet girl that has already been house trained and learned good manners. She is a sweet, friendly girl that has just a tiny bit of a timid side from time to time. She has lived with cats, small dogs and a number of children from babies to toddlers to teens. She adores kids and is very good with them. She likes other dogs male or female and gets along well with them. We are hoping her 5th adoptive home will be her Forever Home. Princess has had more than her share of bad luck already.

Update:Princess Consort (Sasha) was adopted into her 5th (and forever) home with us (Duncan and Carmen McManis) when she was 7 years old.  She loved to race (and often beat) younger fosters around the yard. Sadly 4 years later they lost her to bone cancer.  We will always love and miss this super special girl.

Kebo was originally adopted out by another adoption group that has asked us to help find him a home. Kebo is a great dog that has lived in a home for a couple of years. He is having to be rehomed because of a divorce and not because of anything he did. Because of schedules and new living arrangements neither of his family members are going to be able to take care of him properly.  Kebo has lived with a small dog and is good with children but needs to be tested with cats since he hasn't been around them. Kebo is a friendly guy that loves to sleep on his back with all 4 feet in the air. He loves to play with toys too. No issues at all and Kebo is already home acclimated! His birthday is March 25th of 2005. His sire is Big Zee and is dam is Legler. He raced 59 races at Palm Beach and Orange Park in FL. He was an impressive racer racing at the top A level most of his career and even placing in a stakes race.

Even though she is waggy, happy and silly at times she is a pretty calm and quiet girl most of the time and very well behaved. She has lived with small dogs and cats in her foster home so should be fine with both in an adoptive home. Sunny will give a bark to let you know she needs to go out and hasn't had the first accident in the house. She learned how to do stairs quickly too. She likes to follow her foster family around and seems to really like people. Outside she will playbow and bark trying to get her foster parents to play with her. She is a very sweet girl that seems like she will fit easily into a home like she has always been there. She is very well behaved. She likes to sleep in the bedroom on a dog bed at night and doesn't care for her crate much. What a beautiful girl with that glossy black coat!

Moose was an extra large white and red male that raced at 92lbs at Derby Lane and Jefferson County Kennel club until retiring in Feb of 2011. His sire was the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam was Flying Vaughn. He was adopted by the Johnson Family of Greenville and was a gentle giant that helped them raise a greyhound puppy. He encouraged greyhound adoption by going to many meet and greets and did home visits with his owner Joanne. He also was a member of the Hounds of East Fairhaven performing at the GA and Carolina Renaissance Festivals. Many people fell in love with greyhounds and adopted because of big Moose.He was a very calm lazy guy but always loved any chance to chase a lure or a toy. Moose loved to snuggle with his owners and loved everyone he met. He was great with cats, birds and the small white dog he lived with and seemed to love all creatures. He had just passed his therapy dog test just a week before he died. Moose was lost way too soon when a realtor left a gate open and he got hit by a car on Feb 5th 2013.

When Marlie first arrived she wasn't really timid but more cautious in her new surroundings. She is alert and pays attention to everything that is going on from a distance at first but warms up very quickly. She seems to be very cat tolerant and doesn't pay the cat in her foster home any attention at all so should have no problem in a home with small critters. She has done fantastic with her potty training and hasn't even had one accident in the house. She loves to play with toys and will throw them around and will store her favorites in her crate. She is a beautiful petite girl with a happy personality that gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home and should be a wonderful pet. She loves to play and run in the yard. She might be a good match for someone that likes to jog. Not too far though. Greyhounds are sprinters and have to be worked up gradually to any distance over a mile. Most greyhounds max out at 3 to 5 mile jogs and won't ever be able to handle a marathon.

She is good about letting you know when she needs to go outside. She likes her crate and often goes to it on her own. She can be a bit vocal so may not be the best apartment or townhouse dog.

Baxter is a medium sized 72lb brindle male that is very outgoing and friendly and is very people oriented. He was born on April 18. Baxter is already obedience trained!! He knows sit, down, and wait and does an automatic sit when the treats come out. He walks beautifully on leash too. He has wonderful table manners and doesn't even come near the table while his foster family eats. Baxter is a playful guy outside and loves to run and play with the other dogs. One of his favorite things is to lay in the kiddie pool in the yard on hot days. His foster home dog sits all types of dogs so Baxter has had exposure to a lot of different breeds and has been friendly with all the dogs he has met of all sizes. He loves to play with balls and toys so would probably learn to play fetch quickly. If you want a well trained, happy, fun guy Baxter is your guy! After some exposure to cats we feel he is cat trainable. He was a little interested in them at first but responded well to correction.This is one handsome, photogenic guy that is also very smart! His coat was a little fuzzy in the first photos taken when he arrived but in the more recent photos of him sitting you can see how pretty and shiny his coat is now.

Puddin' is a cute little red brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. Her birthday is Jan 15th 2006 so she is 5 years old. She is a very outgoing, waggy girl that greets every person she meets like a long lost friend. She potties outside and has had no accidents indoors. She crates well and often chooses to go take naps in her open crate. She may have had a little separation anxiety in a previous home when left alone. Since Puddin' has been so perfectly behaved in her foster home with other dogs around, we think that being in a home with another dog might be the key to eliminating this. Puddin' is very loving and friendly and seems to have taken the move into foster care happily and in stride. She is a happy girl that seems to adapt quickly. Puddin' is good with small dogs and cats and is living with a very small dog in her foster home. Her previous family sent her to doggy daycare to play frequently rather than leave her home alone so she is used to being around a variety of other dogs. Puddin' lived with small children and they said she was always very good with them.

Jaqueline just arrived from the track. She is very young and wasn't at the track long. After schooling her about 9 times her trainers decided that she just didn't have what it took to be a successful racer and retired her. So her short career at the track only consisted of schooling races and no real races. Jaqueline is a real love according to her foster family so seems like she will be much more successful as a pet. She is a small girl that is around 57lbs. Her birthday is June 25th.

Giselle is a tall beautiful girl that raced at 70lbs. Her birthday is May 10th. She has settled into foster home with no problems at all and is very well behaved and quiet. She hasn't had a single accident in the house. GIselle has an old leg break from her racing days that is fully healed but limits the movement of her foot a bit causing a permanent limp. She still enjoys running, playing and going for walks and doesn't let it stop her. Giselle likes the security of her crate and chooses to spend time there. She takes things like toys and newspapers to her crate and stores them there. Giselle seems like she would do best in a quiet home. A lot of commotion and wild, loud children would probably be too much for this sensitive beauty.

He passed his cat and small dog tests with flying colors so seems to be a lower prey drive dog that would be fine living with either. He turned 3 on February 5th. So far his foster home thinks that he is going to be an exceptionally well behaved boy. Shot is a half brother to one of our other available dogs Gavin. Also a couple of recently adopted or pending dogs Shawna and Goofy.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Congratulation Leake Family of Missouri 7/31/11

Brandy is a cute little girl with the cutest ears that she can put in just about any position. She raced at 58lbs so is a small but very muscular girl. She is very young and just turned 2 June 13th. She is higher energy for a greyhound.. She would be a great prospect for an obedience greyhound or an agility greyhound because she isn't going to get bored and take a nap in the middle of class like most lazier greyhounds. She is very outgoing and curious about everything and everything makes her happy. She seems like a bright girl that will be a fast learner and wants to please. She is very people oriented and really wants to help you do whatever you are doing and would love to have a "job". She is very agile and is a great jumper and seems like she has springs in her legs. When running around the yard she takes every opportunity to jump things like the diving board, lawn chairs and easily leaps 6 stairs to jump up on the porch. She is beautiful to watch soaring over things. We think she would be excellent at agility because she is the rare greyhound that actually seems to enjoy jumping. She passed her cat and small dog test and is currently being fostered with a small dog. Brandy is going to be a fun girl and is the type that will be the life of any party. She does crate quietly so could live in an apartment or a townhouse. She also potties well on leash so may do OK without a fenced yard. She is going to need a good bit of daily exercise if she doesn't have a yard to play in though. Brandy loves children.

Her Pedigree

Update: Brandy was adopted and she is now known as Bailey. She is one of the top agility greyhounds in the country so watch for her on TV competing at the top levels of her sport. She also is doing obedience and is excellent at that, like we knew she would be. She is still very energetic and loves to work with her mom.

Adoption Status: Adopted Boone/McKinley in Salsbury 7/31/11

Bebo is a handsome medium sized guy that raced at 71lbs. He turns 3 on July 25th. He tested cat and small dog tolerant at the track so should be fine living with either. Bebo is a laid back, but friendly guy that was chosen by his trainers as an easy well behaved dog that would be good for a first time foster home. He is good on leash, crates quietly and only had two accidents in the house during his potty training. He is a fantastic boy that is calm and would be an easy addition to just about any home. Bebo has discovered toys and has started playing with them. He did good on a recent trip to Petco walking in nicely on leash. He negotiated the slippery floors and politely greeted adults, children and other dogs. He gets along great with the other male greyhound in his foster home too. With Bebo's calm easy going nature he would probably have no problem passing a therapy dog test.

She raced at 63lbs. She probably would not do well in an apartment because she does not like to potty on leash. Since she needs her privacy she would do best in a home with fenced yard. This is one SWEET SWEET girl that has been very well behaved in her foster home. Tory is very loving and will bond to her family quickly. If you look at her old photos you will see her amazing transformation. When she arrived she had fleas and had a lot of hair loss from them. Now that her hair has grown back in she is a sleek, shiny, beauty as you can see from her most recent photo.

Sadie is a small, happy, outgoing, girl that raced at 60lbs. She looks smaller than that because she is very short legged and stocky. She can walk right under a larger male without touching. Her sire is Flying Stanley and her dam is Kiowa Shag Shag. She likes people, makes great eye contact and does the funniest little head rub on you if she is happy to see you and she is ALWAYS happy to see you. She is living in a foster home with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. Sadie is a very young girl that doesn't turn 2 until July 3rd but is very well behaved and mature for her age. She has learned to potty on leash now so would probably be fine without a fenced yard. She is very quiet in her crate so should be a good apartment or townhouse dog. She seems like she is great with other dogs and wants to please people. Sadie is very good on leash and does the cutest little prance when she walks. She is starting to play with toys and takes her favorites and stores them in her crate. She seems like she will be a very easy first or 4th greyhound that will be good in just about any situation and has been the perfect foster according to her foster home. Besides having a great personality she is just adorable. Update: Sadie went on her first hike and LOVED it. We also discovered that she likes water and took photos of her cooling off in the lake.

Ferrall is a small red male that raced at 67lbs. He raced for a long time and was very good. It is unusual to get one that is still racing at 5 years old most slow down and retire long before that. HIs birthday was Jan 2nd. Ferrall has the cutest ears. One stands straight up and the other flops down. Ferrall tested small dog tolerant at the track and is living with a cat in his foster home. Ferral is an outgoing but calm laid back guy that will stand next to you and soak of as much love as he can get. He is a perfect gentleman that walks beautifully on leash. His first time in a house he walked in and layed down on the first dog bed he found. Definitely a couch potato! Ferrall seems like a great guy that will calmly make the transition to just about any home and seems like he would be perfect for a first time greyhound adopter that wants a calm loving guy.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Jiles, 7.17.11

Blip is a calm, sweet black girl that raced at 66lbs. She will turn 4 on June 5th. She tested cat and small dog tolerant at the track and is living in a foster home with both. Blip is polite and unassuming. She enjoys interacting with people and getting petted but isn't pushy for affection and will just quietly stand next to you waiting for you to notice and pet her. She seems to like being close to people and follows her foster mom around. Blip likes toys and will play with them some but she is a pretty low energy girl that often chooses not to run around with the other dogs and just stands next to her foster mom. Her foster mom believes she would be an easy first greyhound since she is pretty low key. She can be just a little timid of loud noises and in new situations. She is quiet in her crate when other dogs are in the room with her but she does make some noise in the crate if alone so may not be the best dog for apartment living unless there are other dogs in the family.

Lenny is a lighter brindle male with few brindle stripes. Lenny passed his cat and small dog test so should be fine living with either. He is an outgoing guy that is happy, pretty calm and well mannered.. He seems pretty confident and doesn't seem to get nervous easily. He loves to play with toys and carries them and puts them in a pile where he can find them later. He turned 3 on May 6th and raced at 61lbs so is a very small guy. He hasn't been around children yet but since he isn't a nervous dog that would be scared of them or overly active bouncing dog that would knock a small child down we think he would probably be fine with them. He gets along very well with other dogs and even let a kitten play on his legs without any reaction. He loves water and hopes his new family will buy him a baby pool of his own to play in.

Croc just turned two on May 20th. He is a small 65lb male that is white with red spots. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. Since Croc is very young, he is still a happy bouncy guy. He walks pretty good on leash but sometimes still jumps up to give hugs. We are working on that. He is very curious about everything new in his retired life. So far he has not really been a marker so that should make potty training pretty easy. His sire is NMS Sweet Thing and his dam is Bow Blueberry. He only raced 12 races at JCKC in Florida and was pretty fast. The problem was that he would play with the dogs he was racing against which is called interfering and is strickly against the rules. After interfering in a couple of races he was not allowed to race anymore and forced into retirement.

Allie is a friendly girl that is all white except for the brindle patch over half of her face and one ear. She has a few orange freckles in her fur on her back but black freckles on her one white ear. Very unusual and striking! Very sweet girl too. Allie raced for a long time. Allie turned five Feb 17th. She adjusted perfectly to foster care and is very well behaved and quiet and has done very well on potty training and only had a few accidents. She has already figured out what dog beds are for and loves laying on hers upside down with all 4 feet in the air. She is being fostered with children and is fantastic with them. Her foster mom is hoping Allie will go to a home with children because she is so good with them. Allie has a pretty high prey drive and didn't pass her test with the cat. She passed her initial small dog test though so should be able to live with them with a careful introduction.

Jake is another economic return. He and 4 other greyhounds were rehomed because their family moved and could not take them along. Jake was a very successful racer and retired about 2 years ago. He is already home acclimated because of his time in a home as a pet and has wonderful house manners. He was not returned because of any behavior problems and is quite the gentleman. Jake is an unusual very light fawn color and is a large, gentle guy. Jake was fond of a 9 month old grandchild in his previous home and is in a foster home with children. He seems to enjoy having kids around. He also has lived with cats and small dogs before so would do great in a home with either. Jake is a friendly, happy, loving guy that gets along well with other dogs. He is pretty laid back lower energy guy so would be great for a busy home that didn't have a lot of time or energy to exercise a dog. Jake travels well and enjoys going for a ride. He is already a great pet with lots of love to give and will be an easy addition to some lucky home.

Apache is a 75lb mostly white male. All around one of his eyes the hair is white even the eyelashes. The pigment is pink around the eye even though the eye itself is dark. That is how he got the "whiteeye" part of his name. His other eye has a dark patch beside it and has dark pigment all the way around. Makes him a very striking, unusual looking guy. He is a calm, friendly guy that seems like he will not be phased by much. He will probably be a great pet and an easy greyhound. He is missing one of his toes which is not unusual and won't effect his ability to run and play. Apache was born on July 21st 2006 so is almost 5. Foster Update! Apache is doing wonderfully! He is calm, quiet, friendly, and moves into every situation with good energy. He loves to meet new people and has interacted with every new dog he's met with completely appropriate body language and responses. He hasn't made a sound in his crate since the first night he arrived in foster care. Apache even potties on leash! He is a really nice, even-mannered greyhound that will fit into almost any setting. He would make an excellent first greyhound or addition to an existing pack. The foster family tells us he's the nicest guest to join them home in a very long time.

Sweetie is a sweetheart. She is a little timid but warms up very quickly. She is a snuggler and is always ready to give hugs and nuzzles. She loves her greyhound brother, Bo, that she has been with for about 4 years. Sweetie and her brother Bo were returned due to some allergy issues in the family. She lived with children for years so should be excellent in a home with kids. She has been living with a small Jack Russell in her foster home so could also live in a home with small dogs.

Sweetie is very bonded to Bo and we would love to keep them together. Special accomodations will be made to the adoption fee for the family with a heart large enough to hold these two.

Update: Sweetie is in a new foster home to see how she will do away from her former housemate Bo. She is doing fantastic so we would consider adopting them separately.

Adoption Status: Adopted June 1 2011

JD is a cute little guy that retired before he really got started at the track. He is young and turned two in January. He is sweet and not really shy but isn't the most confident guy so might need a little time to warm up. He is very good in his crate and retreats to the crate when he is nervous or wants to rest. He is very quiet so might be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse. He travels very well. JD is definitely safe with cats and small dogs and has been bullied by a cat in his foster home. Poor JD hides from the cat and that mean ol cat always finds him and picks on him.

Update from JD's foster mom: JD is a really sweet, laid back, undemanding boy. He loves to get loving but definitely needs a few minutes to come around. He is cautious - I guess that is a good way to describe him. He is a submissive boy and we have had no problems with him in the house. He enjoys the crate & this is where we find him when the living room gets a little too busy for him. He really is a super easy foster boy. He is gorgeous with the dark eyeliner around his eyes.

Bounce is a very tiny boy at just 61lbs. He is also very young and celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 8th. So far Bounce has been very timid and unsure of himself. His trainer says he was very shy when he arrived at the track but did warm up and became a fun boy that was friendly and sweet and liked to play. He tested very cat safe and small dog safe at the track with no interest in chasing either. He didn't have much of a chase drive at all at the track which is why he retired before his racing career really even got started.

Update from his foster home: Bounce is gradually getting over his shyness. He now approaches people for petting without dropping his head or getting down on his belly. He still is not playing with toys but will take treats out of a person's hand and gets excited when his foster family comes home. He is very calm and enjoys laying in the grass in the yard. He is interacting more with the dogs in his foster home now - not really playing with them but he will run with them. He was very respectful with a senior dog in his foster home so may be a good dog for a family with an older dog that is wanting a younger one. He seems to be most bonded to people so would probably be fine as an only dog too.

He still looks a little rough because he arrived with lots of fleas which caused hair loss and a skin infection. They have been successfully treated but he needs some time for his hair to come back in. In a month or two Romeo will have a beautiful glossy black coat. So far he is doing great in his foster home and gets along well with all family members human and greyhound. He has picked up on house rules very quickly. Romeo has a very high prey drive so is not going to be able to live with cats or small dogs. He mistakes anything small for a squirrel or a bunny and wants to chase it. He loves to play in sprinklers and will bite at the water and has a great time as you can see in his photos.

Ethan is a small male at only 66lbs. Ethan has been in a home and has great house manners. He was just returned to us to be rehomed because of a weight restriction change at the apartment he had been living in. Since he was over 50lbs he had to go. He was not rehomed due to any behavior problem and doesn't seem to have any. He is a quiet guy that has lived in an apartment so would be perfect for an apartment or townhouse. Ethan likes his crate and often chooses to sleep there with the door open. A few greyhounds are smilers and this is definitely one of them. Ethan will grin up at you if he is happy and will grin even more if he thinks he might be in trouble. His foster family says he is a sweet, friendly, loving boy that couldn't be any nicer. This is a well behaved, easy guy that would be perfect for a first or 4th greyhound. He gets along well with other dogs and cats and likes children. This is one super guy! And SO cute!!

Zena has been returned to our group by her owners. They love her very much, and would love to keep her but have some very serious medical problems that make them unable to care for Zena. They say she is absolutely the most wonderful dog and they are only returning her because of their bad health. Zena small girl that raced at just 57lbs. She is a sweet, friendly girl that gives kisses and loves people and wants to please. She also loves toys. She really enjoys playing with her nylabone and kong. If someone is looking for a dog who likes to show off this is the dog for them! She loves to learn new things and doesn't even need treats to learn, she's all about the praise. She has learned to sit still to get out of her crate, sit and wait for her foster family to walk out a door first, lay down, come when called and wait for food/treats. At one point her foster mom was teaching Zena to "dance" but decided to stop rather than encourage her to jump in the air. Zena is also a great leash walker. Even though she has a bouncy personality she walks calmly right by your side and wears out after half a mile so her exercise requirement is very minimal. She has done great with the cats and small dogs in her foster homes and is even tolerant with a puppy in her current foster home. She adapts quickly and made herself at home right away in her foster home. After politely greeting the other dogs and checking out the house she found a dog bed and flipped over on her back with her legs in the air for a nap. This is a fun girl that has already been home acclimated and is going to be a great pet. Zena will be 5 on Christmas Day!

Mercy is a white female that has black ticking (freckles or dalmation spots). She just turned four April 23 and raced at 60lbs. Mercy is a fun, playful, energetic girl. She was fine with a medium sized dog that she was tested with at the track but was marginal with the cats in her cat test - not horrible but not great either so they think she may not be safe with them. We will do more testing after she is vetted to see how she is with smaller dogs and may redo her cat test to see if how well she responds to training with the cats.

Emma is a lighter brindle female that is on the small side at 58lbs. She has cute little ears that stand straight up when she sees something she is interested in. She traveled well and was quiet in her crate all night. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home so seems like she will be OK in a home with small dogs. She is much to interested in chasing cats to be able to live with cats however. She is already great on leash and doesn't pull at all. She eats well and didn't even skip a meal with the stress of moving from the track to a new home. When you talk to her she wags her tail in happiness. Seems like she is going to be a great girl. More as we get to know her.

Red Female

Augusta GA (Peel)
Adoption Status: Adopted by McIntyre, 5.4.11

Rye is a littermate to Brandy one of our other available dogs. Both are very young girls that only raced a few races and never had much of racing career. Rye is a playful, fun girl like you would expect from a greyhound that is barely more than a pup. She bounces happily to see you and is very friendly and doesn't seem to have any shyness whatsoever. Rye is a little excitable when you first put her leash on but calms down and walks nicely after a minute or two. She is a small girl with the sweetest face and personality. She passed her cat and small dog test so should be fine living with either and was fostered with a small dog. Rye's date of birth is 6/13/09.
