Harry is a full littermate to tiny little Road Rumbler, already adopted by GC. Harry follows the well-known history of Maryville Rumble pups by being an awesome, easily-adaptable boy. His dam is Greys Tarmac who we also placed. He is a smaller male racing at 69lbs. DOB 8/4/2008. He only has 10 races listed a few at Derby Lane and one at Sanford Orlando. He is very mellow and lives in his foster home with a cat, walking by and hardly giving a glance. He's already been vetted and has responded well to house-training. He sleeps well in his crate at night too. He is good with kids, cats and other dogs. What a nice, all-around greyhound ready for his new home!

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA (Shively)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Chatham, 3.3.11

Fib has earned a new name. She is so devoted and stays so close to her foster mom that she started calling her Shadow. As you can see Shadow is a beautiful, dark brindle female. She has the softest fur that feels more like rabbit fur than dog fur. She LOVES LOVES LOVES people and will lean on you for attention - a greyhound hug. Shadow will stand in one spot as long as you will pet her. As you can imagine she is always a real hit at meet and greets with her sweet, friendly personality. FIb loves her squeaky toys and tosses them in the air for herself to catch. She loves playing outside in the yard and will play fetch and actually bring the ball back you. That is pretty rare in greyhounds and most will quickly let you know that they are not retrievers if asked to fetch more than once or twice. Shadow is a fun girl that loves attention and wants to do whatever you are doing. Although she sleeps in her kennel at her foster home she would prefer to sleep in the room with her family when she finds them. Shadow is a confident girl that gets along well with other dogs but is likely to want to be the dominant female in her home. She tested cat and small dog tolerant at the track. She initially showed some interest in the cat in her foster home but has gotten used to living with cats now. She initially mistook small dogs for bunnies too at a distance but was fine once she was properly introduced and got a good sniff. She should be fine now that she has spent time with both. She has done great on potty training and will let you know when she needs to go out. This fun loving girl is in search of a family with lots of love to give and she promises to give even more back.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Salisbury, NC (Doby)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Newsome, 10.2.11

FIre is a 3 year old, small, black, male that raced at 66lbs. His birthday is Jan 28th. Fire passed his cat, small dog and kid tests so should be fine in a home with them. He is a quiet guy so should also be great in an apartment or townhouse. He seems like a smart guy that picks up on things fast. He picked up on going to the door and letting his foster family know when he needed to go outside right away and has not had one accident in the house. Update: Fire has become one of the sweetest dogs that his foster home has ever fostered (they have fostered a lot of dogs). He tries his best to be a big lap dog and follows his foster parents around. He loves people and wants nothing more than to stay close to them. This guy would love to lay on the couch and snuggle. He seem like a very tolerant guy that would be excellent with other dogs because he is unusually good with two puppies living in his foster home.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by Adams, 2.4.11

Sissy is a small outgoing girl that loves people. She is a happy little girl that gives hugs and grins when she is happy. She has been home acclimated already. Her foster home says she is just a joy to have around and is very well behaved. Sissy has lived with cats for 6 months but played too rough with a kitten so would need to be placed only with other small animals that are very clear about not wanting to play with her. As tiny as she is, there is just too much of a size difference between cats and tiny dogs to allow them to play with a larger dog. Sissy would prefer a home with no children or older quiet children. She lived with a couple of very young children and didn't care for their level of activity and noise after a few months.

Fostered by (location):
Clark (Simpsonville)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Cox family on 2.2.11

Lulu is a sweet brindle girl that retired due to a pretty common minor muscle injury in her back leg. Fortunately this injury heals up well on its own and doesn't cause any limping or permanent problem for the dog. She will be fine to run around again and play very soon and her adoption does not need to be held up because of this type of injury. Lulu is really a nice girl that seems like a pretty laid back girl. Her trainer said she was low key and well behaved and never caused any problems at the kennel and that seems to be a good description of her according to her foster home. She does like toys and will play with them but is a lower energy girl that should be a really easy dog. She is another Maryville Rumble pup and he seems to throw some exceptionally sweet well behaved dogs. We have also adopted out a quite a few pups from her mother's line that have been very sweet dogs. It would be hard to go wrong with this great combination. She is a mid sized female that raced at 62lbs. She seems like she is likely to be the perfect companion and is settling into her foster home as if she has always been there.

Ruthie is a sweet, friendly girl that wags like crazy when she meets people. She has been doing quite well with the transition to pet life. She loves attention and everyone is her friend. This outgoing girl is very inquisitive and checks out everything and nothing seems to scare her or bother her. Ruthie passed her cat and small dog test at the track but has show some initial interest in some cats she has met so will need a careful introduction and supervision around cats at first. She seems to lose interest in them pretty quickly. She just needs to know what they are. She seems like a great all around dog that will enjoy doing just about anything that her family wants to do. She still needs a little work on walking on leash without pulling but once she picks that up she would be nearly perfect. This is a fun playful girl!

Greenville, SC (Sundeen)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Sundeen of Taylors SC, 1.22.11

Newsflash--- 3 littermates! Aeros DarkMan, Aeros Puzzler, and Aeros Kruger have arrived! Puzzle got his name because of a question mark on his forehead. Puzzle is a very happy dog, full of life and playful. He has lots of energy being a young boy, but is well-mannered on lead. Puzzle is currently being vetted and looking for his foster placement, but so far he has settled in and been a very nice guest. He showed no interest in the resident cats on his first test so we are calling him probably trainable at this point. We will test him again to confirm at our first opportunity. The first thing visitors notice about Puzzle is that he's so friendly and happy to see everyone! He wants to wag and play, and give kisses, at every opportunity. If you're looking for an outgoing, active greyhound boy who's ready for every new adventure, this is absolutely your dog!

Update: Puzzle was adopted by the Sundeen family and renamed Romeo in 2011. The Sundeens moved to Colorado in 2012. Due to a family situation they had to re-home him in 2014, 3 years after adopting him. Romeo found new owners in Colorado with the help of Colorado Greyhound Adoption.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Wine 1.22.11

Hillary has so much natural black "eyeliner" around her expressive eyes that she looks like she is made up for an awards show so we can kind of see how she would be named for a movie star. Hillary is a tiny, beauty that raced at only 53lbs. She is still nearly a pup and doesn't turn 2 until April. Hillary is very devoted to people and loves attention. She probably wouldn't be quiet enough to be an apartment dog because at the track adoption kennel she would bark and whine when adopters would come in trying to get their attention. Hmmm maybe another movie star behavior? Hillary has showed no interest in chasing the cats or small dogs in her foster home so could live with either. She wants to sleep in the same room as her foster mom and complains loudly if she is not allowed to. So far she has not gone potty on leash on walks but she does like to go for walks. She will definitely need a fenced yard to do her business in with a fence higher than 4 feet. She has been able to get over a gate that was nearly 4 feet high to get back to her foster mom.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by Scott, 1.18.11

CurlyQ is a precious girl that is full of personality and silliness. She earned her name because the end of her tail curls like a piggy's!! When you look at her or talk to her that tail just wags. She is a real velcro dog and will want to be with you no matter where you go. She is a red brindle with lots of 'stripes' on one side and very few on the other. She seems to be the sort of greyhound that will fit in with anyone. When laying down she will put out a paw to get attention when you walk by. She tested as trainable with kitties and small dogs and has actually been living with cats in her foster home. Although she wants to please and has proved that she can be trained to be around small animals, CurlyQ does have a high prey drive so we will need to introduce her carefully to any very small animals (dog or cat) that are in a potential home. She seems to be fine with small to medium sized dogs she has met but was quite interested in a very small dog. CurlyQ will be a wonderful addition to some lucky family and will keep you laughing with her silliness. CurlyQ is a half sister to two of our other available girls, Chato and Lily.

All are fantastic pets and we expect Nina to be wonderful as well. Nina is another greyhound that grins when happy or excited. It is so cute and a sign that you have a submissive, nice tempered dog. Nina was pretty shy to begin with but has warmed up a lot in her first 3 weeks in a home. Now she has started to play with toys and be silly and is really blossoming.

She is a fun playful girl and would be great for a family with kids and/or other dogs. Ritzy has been living in a home and was returned along with her housemate Ramses because the owners couldn't keep them and not because of any behavior problems. Ritzy should be a fun well behaved addition to just about any family. She loves to go for rides as you can see in her photo.

Booboo is a friendly, happy girl that was described as one of "the sweetest girls" at the kennel. Her personality really stood out to get her noticed in the crowd of 70 racers she lived with. Maybe part of that was her unusual name which certainly got everyone's attention. Don't worry, she is not a "pooper" and hasn't had too many "boo boos". Booboo passed her cat and small dog tolerance tests at the track so should be able to live with both. She is very well behaved in her foster home and with the other dogs in their home. Where she really shines is at meet and greets because she really loves her public and is making plenty of fans wherever she goes. This is a great girl that would do well in just about any situation and would be the perfect first greyhound or 10th. She walks nicely on leash too! And yes she does have an unusual chocolate brown spot on her nose. She is a one of a kind for sure.

He is very sweet and safe with small animals and children. As you can see from his photos Bubba does have unique ears that sometimes end up in a position that make him look like he has been in a wind storm. He is such a cute guy and so well behaved.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted to Hays, 12.14.10

Kohle is one of the rare greyhound puppies that became available because of an accidental breeding of two greyhounds. We received 4 pups from this litter along with their mother Sara (Sarandon). Greyhound puppies are rarely available because most pups are bred for racing and are not available for sale or adoption to the public until after their racing careers are over. Greyhound puppies are much different than the typical laid back calm adult greyhound. Pups are like puppies of other breeds - hyperactive, destructive and need constant supervision. We don't recommend them for the average busy family.

Update after adoption: Kohle has grown up to be a tall well behaved young greyhound. He still gets together occasionally to play with his littermates. He also encourages greyhound adoption at Greyhound Crossroads events.

Chug came back into the GC adoption process through no fault of his own. His owner, who loves him very much, is experiencing severe allergic reactions that can't be corrected with medication. She describes him as the perfect dog and is trying to do everything possible to ease his way into another home. Not only will she be donating $100 of his adoption fee on her own, but the new family will have the advantage of his next year under the Banfield Animal Hospital (PetSmart) health care program. Chug comes with his own care package of supplies as well. This is a wonderful, sweet, home-acclimated boy coming from a situation where his family has done everything possible. Chug is calm and well behaved but playful enough to be a fun guy. His foster home says he is quiet and gets along great with their many cats and small dogs. He has been absolutely no problem and very well behaved throughout the transition to his foster home. Since he is so quiet and well behaved he is likely to be a good dog for apartment or townhouse living. Let's get him back home for the holidays!

Hi my name is Ty. I am available for adoption because of the economy. I was a very good pet and my family wanted to keep me but were forced to put me up for adoption because of a job loss and having no place to move with a dog. I am already used to living in a home and I have great house manners. I have lived with children before and really love them. Noisy crying babies freak me out a little though so I would prefer to live with kids that are toddler age or older. I used to attend meet and greets to promote greyhound adoption so am a greyhound ambassador. I am very friendly and outgoing and was great at my job. I love to go for walks and will potty on leash so will be fine without a fenced yard. I lived in an apartment with my previous family so would be quiet enough for apartment living. I am looking for a family that wants a mature lady with manners to share their life with. I am a playful, fun girl that still loves to play and gets along well with other dogs of all kinds. Because of my age I have been selected for a reduced adoption fee of $200! Link to her pedigree

Fostered by (location):
Johnson (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Lewis, 12.8.10

Piper is a very small brindle female pup at only 35lbs. She is 10 months old so probably won't get much larger and is likely to stay exceptionally tiny. She was originally adopted from a shelter so not much is known about her. She has no ear tattoos so can't be identified but looks like she is pure greyhound. Piper is a very friendly confident pup that loves people. She has lived in a home before and was given up because her family didn't know that greyhound puppies NEED a place to run and they didn't have any place for her to play. Greyhound puppies are not calm and laid back like adult greyhounds. They must have a place to play and run and need plenty of exercise like any other puppy. So far Piper has been very well behaved in the house but is an active dog that would love to have other dogs to play with or an active family to play with. She especially loves running and playing with kids and is pretty gentle even though she is pup. She loves balls and toys of all types and is very playful. She does jump up to give hugs and we are working on stopping that. Piper likes to snuggle and must have slept in bed with her former family because she cuddles right up. She loves to get right up in your lap and is small enough to be a lap dog. Piper is very smart and learned how to sit and shake in just a few minutes. She is very food motivated and responds quickly to training if treats are involved. Piper has grown a little since she arrived and has put on 5lbs. She now weighs 40lbs.

Wally is a great older guy that has been in a home so has good house manners already. He was returned to our group through no fault of his own. His family just didn't have room for him. Wally has no idea he is a senior and still runs and plays with the younger dogs and has a great time. This is a precious guy that just wants a couch to call his own and someone to scratch his head.

Wally is a very special case, a senior boy who has some special health considerations. A very kind supporter has donated his adoption fee to help him go home! His pedigree

Update after adoption: Wally's is doing well in his home and was crowned King of the Beach 2010 at Beach Bound Hounds in Myrtle Beach.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Charlotte, NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Witt, 11/21/10

Max never really ended up being a racer which is why we got him so young. He wouldn't come out of the starting box. His sire is the famous Dave The Dog that lives in our area and his dam is ICU Gatsby. He weighs about 80lbs, DOB 9/29/08. He is a very tall boy that is a gentle giant and is actually pretty timid. This shy guy is very happy in his crate and so quiet in his crate he could easily be an apartment dog. He also potties well on leash walks so doesn't require a fenced yard. Max likes to lean up against people and feels more comfortable if he can lean against you if he is nervous or in a new place. Like most shy dogs he is frightened of loud noises and quick movements so might adapt better to a home without small, loud children. Max loves his crate and looks on it as a safe haven and will choose to hide there if something scares him. He walks perfectly on leash without pulling unless he gets startled. When startled he tends to bolt for his crate. He learned stairs quickly and seems to catch on to new things pretty quickly. He is warming up the longer he is in his foster home and is starting to greet people happily that come to visit. So far he has been exceptionally calm for such a young guy. He has started playing with the dogs in his foster home and is exceptionally tolerant even with a puppy. Max is submissive with other dogs and has shown no sign of any dominance at all so seems like he would get along very well in a home with a more dominant dog. He is very cat and small dog tolerant. He LOVES to chew on bones but hasn't shown any sign of wanting to chew on anything else. This is a great boy that will just need some time to warm up to his new family.

Update after adoption: Max has been spotted at many GC events encouraging greyhound adoption. He is not the shy boy that he used to be and has really come out of his shell. He is working toward being a Therapy Dog.

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Horton)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Horton Bottiglier family of Greenville SC, 11.17.10

Raccoon is a friendly girl with very unusual markings. She got her nickname at the track because of the black around her eyes. We haven't seen a fawn dog with this much white before either. She has a white blaze, a wide white collar around her neck, white stockings that go nearly all the way up her legs and half of her tail is even white. Raccoon figured out how to get off her kennel muzzle at the track so she ended up being the only greyhound that didn't have to wear one. She got along well with all the other girls in the turn out pen so she never really needed one. Raccoon loves to play with toys and carry them around. Her favorite at the track was an old cleaned out bleach bottle that she would proudly carry around. She figured out steps right away and has no problem with them. Raccoon has shown that she has a pretty high prey drive but has been OK with the small dog in her foster home after a proper introduction and supervision. She seems to be OK with cats too after an initial sniff but needs to be supervised when cats or small dogs move quickly around her at first until she realizes what they are. She responds very well to correction with cats and small dogs. Raccoon can be loud in the crate sometimes so may not be a good dog for apartment living. She has learned to potty on leash so may be able to live in a home without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her.

Raccoon was loved by the Horton Bottiglier Family of Greenville SC for over 5 years. Sadly Raccoon crossed the bridge 1/18/16 due to bone cancer.

He crates quietly, has been perfectly clean inside with no accidents, and has shown absolutely no interest in chasing any of the cats or small dogs he's met since his arrival. Shilo's original GC fosters had equally nice experiences with him among their pack and feel he's just a terrific, well-rounded boy. Shilo just needs a little visit with our group vet just for a checkup, but he is available for appointments to visit. This wonderful boy is just looking for his forever family!

Santana is a handsome guy that has good house manners and has already been home acclimated. He didn't get along well with the other large male dog in his former home but was tolerant of the small female dogs. Santana would do better in a home with a female dog or a home with no dogs. He walks like a dream on leash and is calm and well behaved. Santana is all heart and totally devoted to his people and even has a heart shape in the fur between his eyes. He loves to have his ears scritched and will stand there as long as you will continue. He is the rare greyhound that has never tried to get up on any furniture. Santana loves to go for rides in the car and plays with balls and ropes. He kennels well but usually is left out because he never has chewed or messed up anything in his home. Santana would do best in a home with no young children. Foster Home Update! Santana is one really marvelous boy! He LOVES to play and will bring instant laughs to anyone closeby. He really is devoted to people and very much wants to be touched and loved. The only difficulty he's displayed in foster care is a slight hesitation to tile/vinyl floors, and if startled or approached by something odd, he tends submissive responses. Santana is a great dog who's absolutely ready to go home! Link to his pedigree.

Gem raced 63 races at Seabrook and at Raynham Taunton tracks. She was good racing at the top A level and winning the GGR Cons. Championship Stakes Race. Her sire is Its AClevercatch and her dam is Greys Slap Happy. She was such a good racer we are surprised that she wasn't ever a mom but we are glad we got her. She is a small girl that raced at just 56lbs. We placed her when she first retired and she lived happily in a home for years until financial difficulties forced them to return her. Gem is a playful 8 year old who gets along well with cats and small dogs. She loves to chase squirrels in the yard and competes for 1st place while walking with her fellow greys. She does well with children but, would probably be best with children over 8 years. Gem seems to have a special affection for the man of the house and would be a wonderful pet for a retired owner or a stay at home parent. Gem cannot go an entire workday without going outside but, could probably easily learn to use a doggie door. She is well behaved, walks well on a leash, loves squeaky toys and is quite a love. Gem has been selected as the recipient of GC member support donations, lowering her adoption fee to $200.

She was back at the kennel when our group arrived to pick out dogs and Kim and Robert fell in love with her. Pooh lives to chase squirrels and you can tell she does a lot of squirrel chasing because she is so stocky and muscular. She look more like a body builder than a thin greyhound. She is a sweet friendly girl that never met a stranger. She can be a bit bossy with her brothers and is a very confident girl.

Nora is a cute little black and white, six year old greyhound that is being rehomed by her family with her greyhound housemate Gabby because they are moving. Since she has been in a home most of her life, Nora is already home acclimated and has great house manners. She is good with cats, kids and small dogs so would fit in, in just about any home. Nora's litter never finished the registration process when they were young so none of them ever raced. We know one of her brothers well and he is a wonderful dog too. Nora had an injury to one of her legs when she was young and has a slight limp especially when she first gets up. This doesn't effect her life much other than keeping her from going up and down flights of stairs. She is fine going for short walks but isn't going to want to be a jogging or hiking partner. This is the perfect dog for a busy family that doesn't have much time to spend exercising a dog or maybe a lower energy family that can't do much walking.  Link to her pedigree

Bennett is a dignified older gentleman in the rare position that we know very little about him. At the grand age he has reached, he very much deserves to have that special place to call home where he is safe and loved. Bennett is ready to follow you home! Update from his foster home! He is a perfect gentleman, never having an accident inside and living peacefully with all the other residents in his foster home including small dogs. He also is very tolerant of all cats he has met and seems to be drawn to children. He adores having his throat rubbed and will patiently stand with his head raised as long as the attention continues. If his humans are seated he gently places his head in their lap. Even though he is farther along in age than most of our dogs, Bennett is very spry and active and still loves to run and play. Bennett especially enjoys walks in the neighborhood and wants a family that will do that with him. They don't have to be long, just a short walk makes him very very happy. He never meets a stranger and everyone lucky enough to give him a rub falls in love! Let's help this precious older fella find the perfect home to spend the rest of his retirement in peace and safety. He has been chosen by our members for special gifts and support, reducing his adoption fee to $200.

Update after adoption: Sawyers foster family decided to keep him. They had already decided to adopt him when he was diagnosed with cancer. They did the adoption paperwork that day to make it official that he had a home for the rest of his life. Sadly he lived just a few more months and crossed the rainbow bridge.

Fostered by (location):
Foster (Myrtle Beach)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Rutkowski, 9.3.10

Dee is a tiny, light fawn brindle girl without many stripes. She was too shy for a kennel situation and they had difficulty catching her after races. Her trainer thinks she will blossom in a quiet home and be a loving pet though. Like most shy dogs she probably would do best in a home with quiet, older children or no children because she may be frightened by yelling and fast movement. Dee crates quietly and loves her crate. Like most shy greyhounds, she sees it as her safe place. She is curious and wants to interact and will come up and bump you with her nose but then quickly back away. Dee seems to be more comfortable with women than men. Link to her pedigree

Update on Dee from her foster home: She is doing very well. She is very shy, but very curious. She wants to know what everything is, but is often scared. She's got guts, though, because she will slowly come back again and again until she can figure out the new thing. She loves being outside with all of the smells and sights. She is also getting more and more comfortable with handling. In fact, she makes sure that she is always in the same room that I am in. If I move, she is right behind me. She loves getting petted, but is still a little scared to come up and ask for love. But with a little coaxing she will generally come get a few scratches. Dee is a very good eater! She loves her food!! She is a complete fool for any kind of meat and also cheddar cheese.

Dee had her first trip to the beach last night, and she loved it! She even did reasonably well with the people on the beach. She did let a couple of people pet her, which is very impressive, since she is so shy. She was completely unafraid of the water, and just walked right in. She wasn't the least bit fazed by the waves washing up on her feet, either. She had a wonderful time exploring all of the new smells. She is completely comfortable with other dogs of all sizes, and still hasn't given my cats so much as a sniff. This is one super sweet girl. She is going to make a devoted companion, and is going to be a little velcro girl. She just needs some time to gain some confidence.

Update: Once Dee learned to trust her foster mom she has bonded very tightly and is very loving. She is still wary of strangers but is getting better. She gets along great with other dogs and cats.

Chato just arrived. She broke her leg recently so was retired from racing. The break doesn't seem to be a bad one so she should be fine to run around and play in a month or so after it heals. She will be in a splint until it heals. Her trainer describes her as a tiny, bubbly girl that follows her around trying to get her attention. She is a tiny 53lb white and black girl with two big black spots on her back that resemble angel wings and some smaller black freckles (ticking). She did great at her first dog event and would go up calmly to people and lean against them to be petted. Chato seems to like to travel and will hop up on the seat and lay down for the ride. She has done great with the very small dogs and cats in her foster home so should be fine living with either. Chato is a half sister to Lily and CurlyQ, two of our other available girls. Her pedigree

Update: Hi! my name's Chato. My hobbies include loving on you, leash walks, and snuggling. Ok ok, I love eating too! What i'm looking for in a family is someone to love me back, help me stretch my legs a lil, and keep my food bowl full. I'm a very good girl, i just want to make you happy. I don't mind having brothers and sisters but i'm ok with being an only child too. If littler dogs growl at me or snap I just walk away. I am such a good girl. I learned to go potty on a leash really good, and i can even walk on slick floors like hardwood and tile with my splint. So they tell me I could live in an apartment or without a fenced yard. My leg is healing up so well that you can barely tell where I broke it now, I can hardly wait until I can run around and play again. I am a pretty low energy girl so don't require much exercise. I would be perfect for a low energy owner that likes to just go for short walks.

Vanna was a kennel favorite while racing because of her sweet, friendly, calm disposition. The fact that she is so beautiful probably played a part in that too.

She seems to have a very low prey drive and had no interest in chasing small dogs or cats. This is a super sweet girl that even stands out in a kennel full of dogs. Vanna loves to play with toys and likes rope toys and stuffed animals best. She will throw them around and pounce on them.

Update after adoption: Vanna was adopted a couple of times but kept coming back to her foster home. They finally decided that she was going to stay - she had known she was supposed to all along. Vanna now promotes greyhound adoption at greyhound events in the Charlotte area.

Rhythm is playful outside and tries to get his foster sister to join him running around the backyard. He seems to get along well with other dogs. He is a very happy, sweet loving guy that loves attention. Another great guy that should be a fantastic pet. His pedigree

Update after adoption: Paws lives with another greyhounds and regularily attends adoption events to promote greyhound adoption. His favorite things are running in the yard with his greyhound sister Blondie and snuggling with his human dad, Ken.

Toast is a very large, very handsome red male at 80lbs. His nose is probably the longest we have ever seen because of his large size combined with an overbite. He is a true needle nose and is truly a one of a kind. He is very friendly and would love to be a lap dog. He is a couch potato and will sit next to you and rest his head on the back of your shoulders. Toast is quite the snuggler already. He travels well and will choose to sit on the seat and look out the window if allowed. He is a great guy that gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and is quite the gentle giant. He would probably be an excellent Therapy dog because of his fiendly nature and easy going personality. His sire is Gable Judges and his dam is Whytell Colorado.

Greenwood, SC (Owens)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Brewer, 6.16.10

Opium is a beautiful black girl with personality to match. She's settled into foster care immediately with absolutely no problems at all. She crates quietly, has been totally clean in the house, and comes back in from the fenced back yard when called. She doesn't have any symptoms of separation anxiety and gets along quite peacefully with the other dogs in her foster home. Opium loves attention and puts on a little "wiggle-butt" show when talked to. She is not cat safe and hasn't been tested with very small children yet, but she did just fine with the older children who have already visited with her. This is a great dog who should be a perfect first greyhound or the next addition to an established pack....perfect just about anywhere! Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is Frisby Fin.
