Adoption Status: Adopted by the Smotherman family of Grovetown GA 7/2/16

Ren is coming in from Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida.  He is coming in with his brother Roman. Ren is the taller of the two boys racing at 78lbs. He raced 121 races and got up to the top AA level when he was racing at Wheeling in WV so he was a very good racer. He is a pretty red boy. His sire is the famous Castor Troy and his dam is Kay Lucky Duck. Ren turned 4 on March 11th. Ren is a friendly boy that is seems sweet and very happy. He is not quite as bouncy as his brother Roman but they are both very outgoing guys. Ren easily passed his small dog test without much interest. He was pretty interested in the cat at first, but after the cat popped him, he decided cats shouldn't be messed with and he wouldn't go near the cat again. We have him listed as cat trainable. He would need a careful introduction to a cat and close supervision at first. A confident cat that would let him know who was boss right away would be best. Ren is very sweet and corrects easily. He seems to want to please. He walks nicely on a leash and travels well.

Her sire is the famous Yahoo Omar and her dam is Sassy Gloria. Leigh is friendly and sweet. She passed her cat test with some interest at first but it didn't take much for her to decide the cat was pretty scary and she didn't want to go near it again. She did fine with a small dog she met. She is doing good in her foster home so far. More as we get to know this sweet girl.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Barnes Family of Simpsonville SC 7/1/16

Zerida is a sweet, friendly, black, female greyhound that raced 60 races at Naples Ft Myers and Bluffs Run before she retired. She raced at 67lbs. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is Kiowa Trent Tam. Zerida broke her leg on Jan 7th. She had surgery that was paid for by your generous donations to Pro Greyhound to stabilize her leg with a plate. She was moved to Pro Greyhound for rehab as soon as she was cleared to travel up from the Track in Florida in her cast. Zerida's leg has healed up very well and she has been cleared by the vet for adoption. The leg looks fantastic and has completely healed, you would never know to look at it that it was ever broken. She only favors it a bit when she runs or goes down steps. Zerida has been going on short walks with her foster mom and can walk a mile, but like a typical lazy greyhound, starts to lag at around that point.  Zerida is a very sweet, friendly girl. She is pretty quiet in her kennel and very well behaved in her foster home. She is very outgoing and would make a great meet and greet dog. She isn't timid at all and we haven't found anything that bothers her or scares her. She is good with children and is fostered with a small dog that she is fine with. She does need a home with no cats. Zerida is a very waggy happy girl that loves everyone she meets. She loves squeaky toys. Zerida is a great girl that gets along well with other dogs so would be a good first or 5th greyhound. She is a very beautiful girl too with her glossy coat!

Fostered by (location):
Dyer, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Salome Family of Spruce Pine NC 6/29/16

Athens just arrived from the Goodman Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Track. She is very young and won't even turn 2 until September 26th. She weighs 67lbs and still has a cute, furry, chocolate brown, puppy coat. When that sheds out in a few months she will be a beautiful glossy black. Athens just wasn't very fast, so never actually had an official race and was retired after a few unsuccessful schooling races. Her sire is Makeshift and her dam is Celtic Dream. Athens did not pass her cat test. She was too interested in the cat to be able to live with them. She did fine with a small dog she met though. She is a friendly girl and so cute! She is doing great in foster care. She gets along well with the other dogs there. The recent thunderstorms didn't phase her a bit. She is confident for a puppy and fearlessly checks everything out. She does complain about being in a kennel so probably not an apartment or townhouse dog. If you are looking for a very young greyhound, this is your girl! Very sweet and cute!

Erskine, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Carpenter Family of Fort Mill, SC 6/25/16

Handy just arrived from Goodman Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She only has 4 races listed and placed toward the back of the pack in all of them. She is a small female at 58lbs. She just turned 2 on June 14th. Her sire is PG Tiger and her dam is Rico's Mary Jane. Handy seems like a very calm quiet girl. She only made a little noise in her kennel at meal times and when she needed to go outside. She walks great on leash and seems very well behaved. She has been good with the other large breeds at her foster home. She initially showed some interest when she first met the cat but lost interest as soon as the cat smacked her so we think she is trainable. She did fine with the small dog she met. She likes her kennel and will choose to lay in there. She hasn't tried out the dog beds or even tried to get up on furniture yet. She was picked at an easy foster for a first time foster home so she should make a great first greyhound or an addition to an existing pack. She is very friendly and sweet. Handy slept through the recent thunderstorms and walked on the slick wood floors in her foster home without fear so she doesn't seem like there is much that phases her.

Marie is a black female greyhound that only raced 29 races. She moved around from track to track racing at Southland in Arkansas then moving to Wheeling in WV, then Gulf in Texas, and finally Melbourne in Florida. She wasn't a good racer and was moved to lower level tracks in hopes she would find a place where she would be competitive. She only ever won one race. She broke her leg in her last race on January 26th. Her surgery to repair the leg was done at the track and Pro Greyhound in NC agreed to take her for her rehab and splint changes. Pro Greyhound is a charitable organization that takes in injured greyhounds and gets them fixed through your donations. The break is healed up and she is out of her splint but still is limping and requires more rehab and limited exercise before she will be released for adoption but we are getting close. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is KB's Kaskey. Marie has liked the children she has met and was good with the small dogs too. She still needs testing with cats.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Turbyfill family of Augusta GA 6/14/16

Gus is a pup that came in initially from a farm in Oklahoma at the end of last year. He showed no interest in chasing a lure so they never completed the registration process on him and he never got a registered racing name. They just called him Gus. He is a gorgeous, very light fawn boy that is very small for a male. He never raced so doesn't have an official racing weight, but we guess him to be around 62lbs. He just turned 2 on April 20th. Gus is a shy boy that was overwhelmed with everything new when he arrived. He does like people but approaches timidly and will belly crawl up to you with just the tip of his tail wagging to show you he is no threat. He did great with his cat test and just politely sniffed the cat and is very tolerant of a small dog in his foster home. He seems like he is very good with other dogs too and is more of an omega dog that is very submissive with both dogs and people. Gus has been living in an adoptive home for some time now. His home has decided that they want to have children in the future. They think Gus might be too timid to live with a baby or a toddler so have decided to rehome him. He was very good with a year old child in his first foster home though. Gus is home acclimated and very good. He did warm up to his adoptive family and loved their other dog so much that they feel he would do best in a home with other dogs that he can follow. He is very calm. Gus's sire is Rob Gronkowski and his dam is Karissma. He is young and just turned 2 in April. Tattoos are 63725 44c. He has several littermates that were registered and are racing now.

Fostered by (location):
Johnston in Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kovacs Family of Easley 6/11/16

Val just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is named Valentine because he was born on Valentines day of 2011. He is listed as white and brindle but looks more white and bluish brown to us. We can't see any stripes in the spots that are supposed to be brindle. He is mostly white though. He is an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is CTW Hard Hannah. Val started racing at Tri State Race Track in West Virginia but was quickly moved to Birmingham. He was a good racer there, getting up to the top A level. He raced an amazing 265 which is right up there with the most races of the dogs we have placed. He gradually started slowing down and finally was retired on May 21st, 2016. Val was curious about the small dog he met, but seems like he will be fine fine with them. He still needs testing with cats and kids. He seems like a very friendly, confident guy. He does have some flea dermatitis so his coat is a little rough right now but that is being treated and it will grow back in very nicely. Val is very friendly and loving and will stand with his head in your lap wanting to be petted. He complained very loudly about being kenneled, so will not be a good apartment dog. He is very calm and laid back but he can be bit pushy and stubborn when it comes to doing what he wants to do - like helping you drive. He will need someone that will give him leadership and direction and continue teaching him the rules that he is learning in his foster home. He is very low energy and very loving.

Fostered by (location):
Owens, Greenwood SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Collins Family of Chatham VA 6/7/16

Smooth is a brindle male with cute ears that stand straight up. He came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track where he ran most of his 110 races. He did race a few at Mardi Gras Racetrack too. Smooth is a smaller male racing at 67lbs. He will turn 4 on June 21st. His sire is WW's Power Press and his dam is WS's Toffee. Smooth was described by his trainer as "personality plus". He does indeed have a lot of personality. He is very friendly and he has never met a stranger. He is fun, bouncy, goofy guy that is definitely high energy for a greyhound. He loves to give hugs. Even a small dog like him is a little too big to do that, so we are correcting that behavior.  Smooth passed his cat and small dog tests easily without much interest in either. He is a smart boy that learns quickly. Smooth takes treats very gently and has learned some very good basic obedience commands. Since he is higher energy he would do best with a fenced yard to run around in every day. He would love an active owner that likes to job or go for walks. Smooth is a very exuberant, happy boy that is very aware of his surroundings and is always up for play, party time, or anything exciting going on. He will do best with a family who is looking for a dog that will enjoy doing things with them instead of just laying on the couch like a typical lazy greyhound.  Smooth would do great with a family that wants to do dog sports or obedience with a greyhound. He has enough energy to make it through an hour long class unlike most lazy greyhounds. Smooth likes kids, because he gets excited and jumps we think he would do best in a home without kids or with older, larger kids that aren't easily knocked down.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bowman Leitko Family of Greenville SC 6/7/16

Jake is coming in from D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane in Florida. He is the son of the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his mom is Urban Sea, who his foster mom adopted after she retired. So when you meet Jake you can meet his mom too! Jake raced 26 races starting at Southland in Arkansas then moving to Derby Lane. He won his last race on May 7th, but injured his shoulder doing it so they decided to retire him. It is a minor muscle injury that won't cause him any trouble as a pet, but he isn't allowed to run around and play for at least a month until it is completely healed. Jake is a mid sized guy that raced at 75lbs. He will turn 3 on September 5th. His trainer says he is one of the best behaved and sweetest boys in the kennel. So far Jake seems like a calm, friendly guy. A very sweet boy that will stay close to his people. It was hard to get pictures of him without people's legs in the background because he was leaning up against them. Jake is very good and respectful with other dogs. He seems like the type of dog that would do great with a more dominant dog. He has no desire to be the top dog and just goes with the flow. He passed his cat and small dog tests very easily with no interest in chasing either. Jake is good on leash and will lean up next to you and likes to be touching you even when walking. He travels well. He seems like a sweet easy guy that would be an easy addition to any home and a wonderful first greyhound.

Roman is coming in from the Mardi Gras Race track with his brother Ren. He also was a very good racer at the Wheeling race track getting up to the top AA level. So fast genes run in their family. Roman raced 101 races before he retired. His sire is the famous Castor Troy and his dam is Kay Lucky Duck. He is a handsome dark brindle guy and is the smaller of the two brothers racing at 73lbs. He turned 4 on March 11th. Roman is a happy happy waggy boy that loves people. He is very outgoing and hasn't been phased by his transition to pet life at all. Very sweet guy. Don't let his serious pictures fool you, this boy is a happy goofy guy. Roman gets so excited to see you when you come home that he barks so wouldn't be a good apartment dog. He passed his small dog test easily and just sniffed curiously. He was very interested in the cat when he first met it but corrected easily and then wouldn't go near the cat. He seems like a boy that really wants to please and do the right thing. If you don't want him to do something just let him know. He is a happy, bouncy boy but he calms down on leash and actually walks very nicely. Since he is bouncy and gets so excited, he probably will need a home with kids that are beyond the toddler phase. He could accidentally knock a toddler down just because he was so excited to happy to see it.

Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Sistare Family of Rutherfordton, NC 5/27/16

Nothing bad about Ellie, she is actually a very shy and timid greyhound. Ellie is a small, brindle girl that raced at 58lbs. She raced 6 races in Sarasota and did win one of them. She pulled up in her last race and did not finish the race. That was in April of 2015. She ended up being sent to Birmingham to race then, but as far as we can tell never actually raced there and went into the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel soon after she arrived. Ellie is a very shy girl that didn't do that well in the kennel atmosphere, so we were asked to help them get her into a quieter foster home. She got along well with the other dogs but is afraid of people she doesn't know and takes a long time to warm up. This isn't because of abuse or anything bad that happened to her. It is genetic and she is naturally very jumpy and scared of everything. She is a dog that will take time to warm up to her new family and isn't likely to enjoy going places. She needs a family that will be patient with her and let her just be a homebody. Ellie will turn 3 on June 22nd. Her sire is Lo Norman and her dam is PG Bad News. Because she is so afraid of everything outside, she doesn't walk well on leash and tends to freeze or bolt if she gets scared. Her foster home is working on her leash skills in their safely fenced yard. Ellie does need a home with a fenced yard because she is likely to be too afraid to go for walks outside her comfort zone. She is very good with cats and sleeps with the cat in her foster home. Ellie is very quiet in her crate and likes the security of her kennel. Ellie would probably be afraid of young, noisy, fast moving kids and needs a home with older quiet kids or no kids. She is slowly warming up to her foster family and is adjusting to life in a home. She is doing really well and sleeps on the bed with the other dogs and cats. It is so rewarding when the really shy dogs come around and start to trust and love their new family! Ellie is a very good girl.

Penny's racing owner is one of our group's volunteers. Penny retired in November and she has been in their home since then so she is home acclimated. Her racing owners had hoped to be able to keep her as a pet, but aren't able to due to their work schedule. Penny raced at Tri State in WV and then Sanford Orlando. She got up to Grade A briefly at both tracks. She has 81 races to her credit and will turn 5 on August 3rd. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Flying Exorcist. She is a confident, friendly, happy girl that is energetic for a greyhound. She would love an active home that would hike, take walks or jog with her sometimes. Penny loves to play ball and frisbee and she would love to have a nice yard where she could run around and play with her family. She gets along well with other dogs. We have her marked as older children only because she is can be bouncy and playful and might knock over a toddler or smaller child. She has a lot of personality and is very sweet.

Cee Cee just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a 63lb black female that just turned 4 on May 17th. She raced 168 races and was pretty good, winning at the top A level. We placed her littermate already, a male named Sharp Edge, so we are excited to be getting Cee Cee too. Her sire is Kiowa WW Brother and her dam is Kiowa Sharp Cay. Her trainer says she is a good racer and still is very fast but she slows in the turns to avoid the other dogs after getting bumped a few times. Her trainer and owner think she would do great in dog sports like amateur racing or lure coursing because fewer dogs run together and she wouldn't have to worry about getting jostled. Cee Cee passed her cat and small dog tests easily without much interest in either. She is a good girl that seems like she wants to please. She went straight back to her new crate and kenneled up without being told after her very first turn out. Cee Cee is a pretty calm girl but was a houdini at the vet's office. She got out of the dog run there by opening the latches several times. Smart girl! Cee Cee is a grinner too!

Robbie passed his cat and small dog tests easily. He is not going to be a good apartment dog because he does bark some in his kennel.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lightle Family of Kalamozo MI 5/14/16

Chrissy is a tiny 45lb brindle female greyhound that arrived with her sister Janet from the Roban Farm in Florida. She is one of the very tiniest greyhounds we have ever placed. Her sister Janet was the same size and has already been placed. Chrissy is a young pup that just turned 2 on March 2nd. She just didn't show much interest in chasing the lure so retired before ever making it to the race track. Her sire is M's Free Mason and her dam is M's Free Action. Chrissy is very shy, what we call a spook. Spooks are genetically shy dogs that seem to have an anxiety disorder that causes them to be afraid of anything new.This type of behavior is not related to abuse and Chrissy came from a very nice farm and was treated very well. This is just her personality so it isn't something that is going to just go away in a month or two with attention and love. Chrissy just shies away or runs away from things she is afraid of and has never shown any inclination to defend herself. She will warm up to her owners and be comfortable in her new home eventually, but it will take a long time, months to a year. She is likely to always be afraid of strangers and terrified outside of her own home, so is going to prefer to be a homebody. Chrissy gets along well with other dogs and would do best in a home with a more confident dog that she could follow. Because she is so jumpy, Chrissy is going to be afraid of fast moving, loud little children and would do better with calm, older children or in a home with no children. She will need a very patient family that will love her as she is and give her the time she needs to trust them and get comfortable. Chrissy has been in a foster care for over 5 months waiting on someone to adopt her.  She has warmed up to her foster dad with time and encouragement and now sleeps on the bed with him. Chrissy snuggles with him on the couch and does a cute playful bark at dinner time to remind him to feed her. She initiates play now and brings him toys, but it took months to get to that point. Spooks are so rewarding when they do finally come around. They become very bonded to their family once they trust them. If you want a very tiny girl and are willing to give Chrissy time to love you, she will be a very devoted girl and good pet.

She doesn't seem to be real confident and seems like she tries to do the right thing. Jojo passed her cat and small dog tests easily so should be fine to live with either. Jojo has a very unusual patch of white hair on her shoulder that makes her a one of a kind.

Eli is a red fawn male greyhound that came in from the Melbourne FL race track. He only raced 19 races, most of them at Derby Lane in FL. He only won one of those races and usually finished toward the back of the pack. Eli is a mid-sized guy racing at 74lbs. He is young and just turned 2 on January 15th. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Global Crash. Eli is a happy, friendly, guy that has been good with the small dogs he has met. He is a very confident guy and since he is young has some energy. He plays in short bursts but calms down very nicely and sleeps most of the day like the typical greyhound. He is doing very well in his foster home with the other greyhounds there. Eli was a little growly over his space when laying down at first, but is doing fine now. Because of that, we think he would do better in a home with no kids or older kids old enough to understand the old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie."

Remus initially came in from the Southland Race Track where he raced 67 races. He was a big star there, racing at the top AA level and even competing in a Stakes race. Southland is the highest paying track in the country where the best dogs race so he was the best of the best! He raced at 69lbs so is a smaller red male. His sire is BD's Herby and his dam is My Heroine. He will turn 4 on May 20th. Remus is a very friendly guy that hasn't met a stranger. He travels very well and likes to go for rides. He was initially very interested in the cat until the cat slapped him and then didn't want to get near the cat again. So we think he would probably be OK in a home with a confident cat with supervision at first. He was curious about the little white dog he met at first too but just sniffed and figured out right away that it was another dog and then lost interest. Remus is very quiet and lived for awhile in an apartment until his owner had to move for work to another country and was unable to take him with him. He pulls some on the leash when he is excited so needs a little work on that. He does potty well on leash and is used to being walked for potty breaks since he didn't have access to a fenced area at the apartment. He does stairs well. Remus is pretty active for a greyhound and likes to play and go for walks. He is a very confident guy.

Addie Bug walks nicely on leash and is a happy, friendly girl going up to people she meets for attention. She is a natural sitter too. Most greyhounds are not comfortable in a sit. We have Addie Bug listed as older children only because, like a lot of dogs, she doesn't like to be bothered when sleeping or laying down.

Sam is a very handsome boy that is almost entirely white with just a few black spots and lots of smaller freckles on his skin that show through his white fur. He is a very striking greyhound. His sire is Tims Crow and his dam is Red Hot Victory. Sam raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized guy. He has put on some extra weight during his retirement so is on a diet now. He just turned 4 on October 1st. Sam is a happy guy with a lot of personality that loves everyone he meets and bonds strongly to his owners. He is very cute too with a curly tail that curls up over his back, which is unusual for a greyhound! Sam is a real social butterfly that has done great at meet and greets. He thinks he is the welcoming committee and makes sure everyone gets a chance to pet him. Sam raced at the Sanford Orlando race track and had 55 races listed. He was a good boy at the track kennel and came highly recommended as a nice pet by his trainers because of his outgoing fun personality. He passed his cat test so is OK to live with cats or smaller dogs. Sam has been in an adoptive home for over a year but he had separation anxiety most of that time as an only dog. He does fine around other dogs so just needs a home where he has at least one other dog for companionship. He has been noisy when left alone in his crate so wouldn't be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse. Sam is happy and bouncy but only for a short time and then calms down nicely and turns into a typical greyhound couch potato. Sam travels well and seems to love going places and absolutely LOVES meeting new people. He walks nicely on leash too. Sam is pretty perfect.

Andy is a light fawn male greyhound that came in from the Orlando Track. He raced 4 maiden races in Palm Beach but didn't do well so he was moved to Orlando to try his luck there. Right after he arrived in Orlando he had a seizure at the end of June 2014. His racing owner retired him right away and they held him for a couple of weeks until we could get to Orlando to pick him up. Andy was with us for months and never had another seizure, so our vet advised us not to start him on the medication to prevent seizures unless he had another one. After he was adopted he had one seizure at the end of October and a couple more in December and a number in two days around Christmas. He was returned to us by his family because they didn't want to give him the inexpensive medication necessary to stop the seizures, even though they knew when they adopted him that he had had a seizure and would need medication if he ever had more. Our vet checked him as soon as he was returned and put him on Phenobarbital. He had one more seizure after a few days so Potassium Bromide was added. He has had no seizures since then in the last 2 months and our vets feel we have regulated his seizures and have released him for adoption. Andy is a very calm, well-behaved boy that is a beautiful light fawn with dark sabling on his face and neck. The medication does have a slightly sedating effect so he is going to be very calm and and more laid back than most greyhounds. Andy loves to go for walks and an occasional run in the yard. Andy is young and turned 2 on September 1st. He is a smaller guy, racing at 67lbs. His sire is Little Andy and his dam is Backwood Terri. He passed his small dog test and is doing great with small dogs in his foster home. Andy was interested in chasing the cats until one slapped him, then he panicked, slipped, and fell down trying to get away from the cats. We couldn't get him to go back near the cats again. So a home with a cat that would stand his ground should be all it would take for Andy to stay away from the cat permanently. Andy loves to go for rides in the car and will wait in the car for you happily when you run your errands. Andy is a very sweet, loving guy and his foster dad has been taking him to work with him every day. Everyone that meets him falls in love with his sweet loving personality. He was fostered with a 2 year old and loves kids. Andy can be a little noisy in his crate so would not be a good choice for apartment living. Andy does have an issue with pottying on leash- it takes him a very long time to go on leash, iF he goes at all. Andy seems to like his privacy and does much better when he can potty in a fenced yard off leash so he has to have a home with a fenced yard. 

One of Andy's former foster homes that has moved to Florida is coming back to adopt him!

Right now he still has a fuzzy coat that greyhounds get from spending a lot of time outside playing in colder weather like they have in Kansas. It usually takes 2 - 3 months for this coat to be replaced with a sleek shiny indoor greyhound coat. Sammy passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either.

Spock is a small, handsome, black, male Greyhound that came straight from Mike Strickland's farm in Abilene, Kansas. Although his littermates are all good racers at Southland, Derby Lane and Daytona, his owner decided not to register Spock or race him. Even though Spock was very fast, he was nervous at the farm with new people and his owner didn't feel like he would do well at the end of the race when strangers tried to catch him. When we picked up Spock from the farm he came straight up to us and covered us with kisses and wagged so he may have overcome most of his shyness. He was great on the trip from Kansas and would grin and wag anytime anyone approached him. He is a greyhound grinner and grins when he is happy! He rarely tucked his tail, and was one of the friendlier dogs on the trip instead of being shy. His owner felt that he was too timid to be placed in a home with loud children that would grab him or scare him. So we are honoring that request, even though he doesn't seem to be the shy dog that we expected him to be. Spock is young and will turn 2 on May 1st. His littermates Splendor, Eyes Believe It, Eyes Command, Eyes Leading On and Eyes Slippery have just started their racing careers and are doing really well. Since Spock never finished the registration process and never got a racing name he isn't listed on the greyhound data database. We do know that his sire is the very famous Oshkosh Slammer and his dam is Whats Next. Spock travels well and gets along well with other dogs and passed his cat test with no interest. He is a very cute sweet boy that is going to be very loving to his new family.

He gets silly and bounces on leash so needs a little work on that. He travels very well. He is the rare greyhound that could be a watch dog. He has growled and barked a few times when he sees something outside that bothers him.

Kristin came in from the Naples Ft. Myers Race Track where she raced just a few races. Most of her races were at Wheeling Downs Track in West Virginia. She had 48 races total but only won one of them that we could find. She placed mostly. Kristin raced at 62lbs. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is RK's Jeopardy. Kristin will turn 3 on May 1st. Kristen was interested in the small dog she met at first but quickly realized what it was and then was fine. By the time we did her cat test, she just politely sniffed the cat and didn't appear interested at all. We have noticed that she responds with interest to movement of small critters so even though she easily passed her cat test she will need supervision at first around fast moving cats and small dogs until she gets used to seeing them. She was fostered with a small dog. Kristin can be loud in her kennel so may not be the best choice for apartment or townhome living. Kristin is a very friendly girl that loves people and loves attention. She is a natural sitter too. Kristin has been competing in 5Ks with her foster mom so would be a great choice for someone that likes to jog or hike with their dog. They have been the first human dog team to finish too!  Update from her foster home!  Kristin has displayed different responses to small dogs and cats, depending on the individual animals.  We don't feel that she can be marked as safe because it may depend on each situation.  She is good with children!

Fostered by (location):
Kaage in Augusta GA.
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Sellner Family of N. Augusta SC 3/12/16

Waylon is a handsome male greyhound that retired from racing in March of 2015. He raced at Dubuque, Naples Ft Myers and Mardi Gras Race Tracks mainly at the lower levels. He managed to win 5 of his 40 races. Waylon just turned 3 on September 3rd. His sire is Red Rooster Bonz and his dam is Nervous Nannie. Waylon is a very happy sweet guy and has a lot of personality. He is very friendly and gives hugs as you can see in some of his photos. He raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized guy. He showed some initial interest in the cat but quickly lost interest and showed he was much more interested in getting love from people. We think he would do fine in a home with cats with proper supervision at first. He has been fine with the small dogs he has met. Waylon has very limited eyesight and has been diagnosed by a specialist with retinal degeneration. There are many possible causes of this including inflammatory disease, retinal detachment, genetic or autoimmune disease. Time will help determine if his vision will continue to decline or remain stable. There is no treatment. The retina cannot regenerate so the damage that has occurred is permanent. It is not painful and will not cause any other systemic or ocular disease. He is able to see light and dark and large shapes. He seems to be able to see the best outside in the yard on bright days and will run and play outside. Waylon takes it all in stride and doesn't mind having limited sight. He does very well in familiar areas and with a little help can navigate on walks out of his yard. Waylon has a go with the flow personality and doesn't let cloudy vision affect his happiness one bit. He is a very sweet happy boy that loves people and attention.

Dark Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:

Fostered by (location):
Fulton (Jekyll Island, GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hollis family of Greenville 3/6/14

Godiva is a beautiful, tiny, dark brindle, female that initially came in from the Daytona Beach Kennel closing. She only raced 15 races at Mardi Gras and Sanford Orlando tracks and never actually raced at Daytona after she was moved there. She is a tiny little girl that raced at 55lbs. She is all legs and very petite. She turned 2 on June 6th. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is TB's Holy Cow. She is a friendly girl that is very calm and quiet. Godiva is used to being around children because her trainer had three boys that were in the kennel a lot, but because of some behavior in her previous home we think she would do better in a home with no kids. She is very quiet in her crate and does stairs easily so might be a good apartment or townhouse dog. She goes to the door when she needs to go outside. Godiva prefers humans over other dogs and loves attention. She got along well with another male dog in her first home. Godiva was returned because she was doing some resource guarding in her home, so we would like to adopt her to a home that has some experience with that. She has been in foster care for some time now and we have had none of the issues her previous home reported, though. Since she has been perfectly behaved in two foster homes, we think she just needs the right home. Godiva has had some agility and basic obedience training already! She likes to walk and jog and is excellent on leash! She has home experience and has lived in a home for over 6 months.

Cat Tolerance:

Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bowden Family of Greenville 2/26/16

Samson is an older guy that has been in a home since 2009. He is a huge guy that towers over most other greyhounds and weighs close to 100lbs but could stand to lose a few lbs. We don't have a lot of information about his past or his racing name. He will celebrate his 9th birthday in May though. Samson was returned with his 10-year-old housemate Delilah to the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. She is still available in Birmingham and arrangements could be made to bring her here too if a family were interested in adopting both together. They were returned due to a family situation and not because of a problem with the dogs. Samson did not pass his cat test but was good with the small dogs in his foster home. He is a calm, sweet, gentle giant. Because he is an older guy he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Samson arrived with a slight limp that got worse in the next two weeks. He was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. His foster mom decided to just adopt him and love him for the time he has left.

Vulcan is a dark brindle male greyhound that initially came in from the Birmingham Race Track. He also raced very briefly at Palm Beach and Ebro tracks in Florida. He only had a total of 14 races and only won one of those. He didn't place in any of his other races and usually finished last. His sire is Heart Rumble and his dam is BI's Owens Girl. Vulcan turned 3 on October 2nd. Vulcan was in a home since December of 2014 and did great there.  Vulcan was returned to us because of a divorce and a move. His first owner was heartbroken to have to give him up. Vulcan was quickly adopted out again in November of 2015 but is being returned to us again because they don't have a fenced yard and they think he would enjoy running around more. Vulcan is so good with cats and small animals that he was living with an exotic animal rehabber and he was good with all the wild animals there. Rick is a friendly boy that is very well behaved and sweet. Neither of his previous homes have reported any behavior problems.
