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.

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.

Fostered by (location):

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.

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.

Flash cam in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. She raced all of her 92 races there. On December 12th she was bumped in a race and fell, breaking a leg. Her racing owner paid for her to have surgery. Flash had a plate put in to stabilize the break before she was moved to our group. She is being fostered by one of our vets in Columbia for her rehab. Flash is recovering nicely and is out of her splint and doing really well. She is ready to start meeting potential families. Flash is the littermate of another dog we placed named GS Barry. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is GS Millie. Flash raced at 60lbs and will turn 3 on March 6th. Flash is a beautiful, black female with a white chest, socks and white blaze on her face. Very flashy just like her name. Flash has a fun bouncy personality after just a short time in her foster home but was initially just a bit timid when meeting new people. She warms up very fast though. She was initially very interested in the cats until one slapped her, then she didn't want to go near it again. So we have her listed as trainable and she would do best in a home with a cat that would let her know who is boss. Flash is adapting very well to her foster home. She went out to a home show event and did great. Very friendly girl that liked kids.

Nitrous just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is fostered with his sister CTW Notgonnabeg who we already placed. Nitrous also raced a few races at the Gulf race track but most of his 85 races were at Birmingham. He did get up to the top A level there. His last race was October 7th. Nitrous's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is CTW Make It Work. He just turned 3 on December 14th. He raced at 69lbs. Nitrous is mostly white with some freckles and a small brindle spot over both of his eyes. No other large spots on his body though. He is a happy bouncy boy with some energy. He would love a family that wants to hike or jog with their dog or do something like agility or obedience. Although he is higher energy than most greyhounds he does settle and is calm in the house. He doesn't seem to be intimidated or afraid of anything and would be an excellent therapy dog or service dog. Nitrous did pass his cat and small dog tests at the track and is being fostered with a small dog. He wants to go see everything and greet everyone so does pull excitedly on leash and needs some work on that. He is a great guy that will be a fun companion like his sister has been. He does sing along with fire trucks and sometimes just sings for the fun of it so he wouldn't be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse. This guy is so snuggly and has such a sweet happy personality just like his sister.

Garette passed his cat and small dog tests and didn't seem interested in chasing either. He is a bit of a marker so will need close supervision at first. More as we get to know him.

He is a short, very muscular guy that raced at 69lbs. He is mostly-white with one brindle spot over one eye and one brindle ear. He just turned 3 on December 14th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his Dam is CTW Make It Work. He is coming in with his littermate CTW Nitrous who looks just like him and also just retired from the Birmingham Race Track. Nay Sayer raced 115 races and did get up to the top A level there. His last race was December 30th. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track. He did not get along with a few of the males at the track and got attacked. He was on the receiving end so we don't think it was his fault, but we will evaluate him with other males when we get him to see how he does. This litter of greyhounds turned out to be high energy and not your typical greyhounds. They bouncy, wag and jump and will need an active home that wants to jog, hike or do training with them like agility or obedience. They are very friendly and not timid at all. They don't seem to be afraid of anything. More as we get to know him.

Mark came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 197 races and also raced at Melbourne, Dubuque, Bluffs Run and Mardi Gras. He was a good racer that raced at the top A level and his last race was an A level race that he placed 3rd in. He had a minor muscle injury in that last race on June 8th. Mark has healed up from that and is fine now and runs and plays normally. Since he was already 5 years old they decided to go ahead and retire him. He turned 5 on August 13th so he had a very long racing career. Mark's sire is B's Royal Tim and his dam is WW Star Isabel. Mark is a very confident, happy-go-lucky guy. He is very loving and follows his foster mom around the house wanting to be close to her. He only had one accident in his foster home on the Christmas tree which was an honest mistake. Mark is very smart and learns fast. He figured out how to open a door and a gate. Mark is silly and playful and loves playing with toys. When Mark first arrived his coat was a little rough as you can see in some of his early photos, but he has a shiny black coat now and is a very handsome boy. He is a mid sized male racing at 72lbs. Mark was pretty excitable when he first saw small furry things but calmed down after some exposure at the vet's office. He has been good with some small dogs he met since he has been in foster care too. Mark can be a little bossy with other males so we think he would do best in a home with female dogs or he would also be fine as an only dog. Mark was very vocal when he first arrived but has quieted down nicely and likes his kennel now and is very quiet. This is a sweet, loving, fun guy that has a lot of personality. Mark has done very well with the visiting grandchildren in his foster home and seems to especially love kids. He is going to make a fun addition for some lucky family.

She wouldn't go near the cat and seemed to know that she would get scratched by the cat but she would stand, stare and bark at it from a distance. Even though she never acted like she was going to chase the cat, she appeared to really dislike the cat so we think she would do better in a home without cats.

Abby originally came to us with her sister from a greyhound farm in Kansas. She is raced 131 races at Palm Beach race track in Florida but retired in March of 2013. She raced at 60lbs so is a mid sized female. Her owner was planning on having her become a mama and she stayed on the farm for over a year, but she never did have any pups, so they retired her. We received her in November of 2014 and she was quickly adopted a year ago and has been in a home since then. Due to a death in the family she has been returned to us to find a new home now. She turned 6 on on July 31st. Her sire is TK Quick Strike. Our group placed her mom Audacious and another of her sisters Beguiled so we were pretty excited to get her and her sister when they retired. Abby passed her cat and small dog tests and lived in a foster home with small dogs. Abby is a sweet girl that is pretty timid at first. She did warm up to her first family after some time, but is a girl that is happy just napping on a dog bad and doesn't seek out a lot of affection. She is a sweet girl that did well in a home and had good manners. She did live with a male greyhound in her adoptive home and did well with him. Although she seems to be fine with children, she would need a home with a quiet child. A lot of noise and activity is going to make her nervous.

Ace is a retired stud dog that has 49 offspring listed so far and more on the way. He was a very successful racer at one of the top tracks in the country before he retired, racing at Southland in Arkansas. Ace was a 2011 Derby Lane Distance Classic Finalist. He had the season's best race time at Derby Lane for the 3/8ths distance. He WON 43 of his 152 races. Ace was a star and one of the top racers in the country. We feel honored to help such a huge star find a home. His sire is Kelsos Fusileer and his dam is Kelsos Picilino. Ace is a mid sized guy that raced at 75lbs and came in at about 79lbs. He is very mellow and loves to be loved on. Very laid back and very calm. Ace responds well to corrections and is doing really well in his foster home. He gets along well with other dogs and even some goats on the farm. He doesn't seem to have any signs of separation anxiety so may make a good only greyhound. Although he was a great racer he doesn't seem to have much prey drive towards any type of animal and has no interest in chasing cats or other farm animals. He walks perfectly on leash and doesn't even try to bolt after squirrels or birds. He hasn't made any noise at all in his foster home so she thinks he might do well in an apartment.

Devon is a tiny little female that didn't race. She schooled to race but just didn't have much of a drive to chase and sometimes just stood in the box instead of chasing the lure.

Her mom is having to move in with other family members to care for them and their children and Devon can't go with her. Devon is very small weighing about 55lbs. She paid no attention to the cats and small dogs at the vet's office and was even a bit afraid to approach them so should do well in a home with cats or small dogs. She is a littermate to a girl that we also placed named All I Remember (Angela). Her sire is Kinloch Brae and her dam is Suzanna Salter. Devon will turn 4 on March 7th. According to her family she is very sweet and very good. She can be just a little timid at first when meeting new people.  Be sure to click on her other pictures below to see a cute one of her and her littermates as tiny babies! She is doing great in her foster home after just a couple of days she is venturing out of her crate to interact with them and play with toys. She is a very quiet girl so may be a good apartment dog. She has been calm and very gentle with the kids in her foster home. She is very good with other dogs and will let them take her toys without complaint.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Wendle Family of Murrells Inlet SC 1/24/16

Janet came in from the Roban Farm in Florida. She is a puppy that just didn't show much interest in chasing a lure so she was retired before she ever got to the track. Janet won't turn 2 until March 2nd. Her sire is M's Free Mason and her dam is M's Free Action. She is very shy at first with people she doesn't know but has more confidence than her sister Chrissy, who is also available for adoption. Janet is the redder brindle of the two sisters and has a gorgeous shiny coat. She is very very tiny for a greyhound, weighing only 45lbs. She is one of the smallest females that we have ever placed. Janet has warmed up with her foster family and bounces around playfully and even cuddles in bed with them but it did take some time. She is a silly, happy girl once she has time to warm up. The shyness is just her personality and not the result of anything bad happening to her. She had great owners and was raised on a nice farm. Both girls inherited their shyness from their parents. We have decided not to place Janet and Chrissy together. Chrissy is too dependent on Janet to be healthy and the two girls are more timid when together. Once we placed them in separate foster homes, they both did better. Janet is doing very well in her foster home. She kennels quietly and has good house manners. She will need time and patience to warm up to her adoptive family but isn't nearly as shy as her sister. Janet is curious about the small children she has met. She is more likely to approach a new small child than a new adult. She approaches very carefully and gives them gentle kisses. She seems like she might do well in home with a quiet child but multiple loud kids and running and screaming are likely to scare her. She is more timid around loud noises like yelling or slamming doors. Janet is a very very cute little girl with a lot of love to give. She may always be a bit of a homebody. She likes to go for rides in the car and just lays down. Once she gets to her destination she isn't sure she wants to get out to walk around in the new scary place. She probably would do better in a home with a fenced yard because she does get spooked easily on leash and will freeze in place.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hubbard family 1/16/16

Fitz came from the adoption kennel at the Tri-State track in WV. He is a very short guy that is the height of our smaller girls but weighs 74lbs because of his stocky, body builder build. He is very cute with all that eyeliner and so friendly. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Kelso's Snazzy. He was born on June 1st and will celebrate his 6th birthday then. Fitz has been in an adoptive home since 2013. Due to a change in their schedule they no longer have the time to spend with him that he needs and made the difficult decision to return him. He does fine with cats and small dogs so should do well in a home with either. Fitz has separation anxiety and does complain while left alone in his crate so he would probably not be a good apartment or townhouse dog. Fitz is very friendly, loving, waggy and gives kisses. He will settle on a dog bed in your room and sleep all night. He is a great guy with a fun, happy, sweet personality. He is food and toy motivated so might be an excellent dog for someone that wanted to teach tricks. He travels very well and would love a family that would let him go with them as much as possible. Because of his separation anxiety he would do best in a home with other dogs so he doesn't have to be totally alone. A family that had one member that stayed home a lot would also be great for him so he didn't have to be alone as often.

She was born on November 7th of 2015 and won't be available for adoption until she is at least 8 weeks old and weaned. Butters is a confident friendly pup, very happy go lucky and sweet. It is rare for greyhound pups to be available for adoption since most pups are bred to be racers and go to the track before they are available for adoption. Occasionally we get greyhound pups that are unable to be registered because of an accidental breeding like this or are injured as pups and aren't going to go on to race. Greyhound puppies are not like calm adult greyhounds in any way. They quickly grow to full size by 8-10 months old and can run nearly as fast as an adult racer at that age. They are very hyper and can run and play all day at that age so need a large fenced area to play in and lots of play time with other dogs and humans. Like all puppies, they can do a lot of damage to your house if unsupervised by chewing, digging and during the long potty training process. Greyhound puppies are not for inexperienced owners and are a huge responsibility. Like all puppies they need a lot of socialization and work to become the happy friendly dogs that we normally get from the track.

Greta came in from an Oklahoma farm where she has been since she has retired from racing. She raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers and Flagler Race Tracks. She did get up to the top A level so was good. She race 121 races and retired in September of 2013 and went back to the farm to be a mom. She doesn't have any litters of pups listed yet so either didn't have any or they may just not be old enough to be registered yet. Now she is being retired and is looking for a couch. Her sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is PR's Maddy Rae. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 54lbs and just celebrated her 6th birthday on November 16th. Her foster mom says she is a real lover that seeks out attention and follows her around. She loves the kids she has met. Very friendly and happy. Greta came in her home like she had always been there. She was a little interested in cats at first but now is very good with the cats in her foster home and chooses to avoid them. She is still too interested in small dogs that are bouncing or running around so her foster home thinks she would do better in a home without them. Greta is gentle, loving and loves to snuggle. She has no trouble with stairs and easily navigates all types of flooring. She crates well and loves to go for rides in the care.

Peek A Boo is female greyhound puppy that came from an accidental litter of nine greyhounds in Alabama. We weren't given her mother's name and they aren't sure who her father is. She was born on November 12th. She is sweet, friendly and seems very well behaved for a small greyhound puppy. Like all greyhound puppies, she will be exceptionally high energy for the first year of her life and needs a large fenced area to play in and a home willing to do a lot of training and puppy socialization. Greyhound puppies are rarely available to the public because most greyhounds have a racing career before we get them. Occasionally accidental litters happen that can not be registered for racing. We go years between getting puppies, but this year we have been asked to help place several litters.

He turned 2 on May 1st so is still pretty young. He is very calm and friendly. Ed was interested the first time he met the cats but since has lost interest in them and prefers to sniff the cat food over the cat itself. Ed loves to go on rides in the car and is has settled into foster care easily. He is a very good boy that is very loving and sweet. Ed is almost completely white. He just has a patch over one eye. Ed has been going to agility classes with his foster family's other greyhound and is having fun with his lessons and can do quite a few of the obstacles now. He is a super guy that seems like he takes anything and everything in stride and would be a great dog for pet therapy or meet and greets or maybe even dog sports. He was a marker when he first arrived but learned not to go in his foster home quickly. He will need supervision in a new home at first since dogs don't automatically understand that the rules are the same from house to house. Ed can be talkative sometimes so probably wouldn't do well as an apartment dog. He has a lot of personality and is a happy go lucky guy that would be great in just about any situation.

He was a little interested in the cat in his first cat test at the track but when we tested him the cat smacked him as he was walking throught the door and he was so scared of the cat he started shaking and didn't want anything to do with it again. Hanz does a funny little bounce sometimes when he gets to the end of the leash so needs a little more work on leash manners when he is excited. He also needs some work on wood floors and stairs, he doesn't know how to do those and those freak him out a bit. Even though he has a few things that worry him he is anything but timid or shy.

Greyhound puppies are not like calm adult greyhounds in any way. They quickly grow to full size by 8-10 months old and can run nearly as fast as an adult racer at that age. They are very hyper and can run and play all day at that age so need a large fenced area to play in and lots of play time with other dogs and humans. Like all puppies, they can do a lot of damage to your house if unsupervised by chewing, digging and during the long potty training process. Greyhound puppies are not for inexperienced owners and are a huge responsibility. Like all puppies, they need a lot of socialization and work to become the happy friendly dogs that we normally get from the track.

Bear was the result of an unplanned pregnancy. His mother is JS Lil Bit Tipsy and his dad is a greyhound but we aren't sure who. He was born on November 7th of 2015 and won't be available for adoption until he is at least 8 weeks old and weaned. Bear is a confident friendly pup, very happy go lucky and sweet.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Blackwell Family of Boiling Springs 1/7/16

Coal is a gorgeous, extra large, black male that raced at 83lbs. He will turn 4 on June 16th. He raced 74 races starting in Birmingham then moving to Sanford Orlando. He was pretty good racing at the top A levels at both tracks. He had a bad fall on June 2nd 2014 in a race that resulted in a torn muscle in a back leg. His owner had surgery done on the muscle and kept him off until October to heal up. He healed up well and was quickly back up to the top A level again and raced well for another year. In September of 2015, he had a jammed ankle that forced him to take a few months off. During his time off the scar tissue from the old surgical repair stiffened up. When they started running him again in December he just wasn't able to get the extension he needed to win races. Both old injuries are healed and shouldn't affect him as a pet. They just took a second or so off his time that is the difference between winning and coming in last. Coal is a special guy. He was raised and raced by his owner and is considered a pet as well as an elite athlete. She would love to get updates from his adoptive family. Coal is a friendly boy that was always good in the kennel. He never had accidents in his crate and was a happy guy that everyone liked. Most of the time the bigger boys are kept in the lower crates at the track but Coal likes to jump up into the top crates so is the unusual male that was a top crate dog. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Kentucky Merlot. More as we get to know him.

Ditmore in Chapel Hill NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Cherner Family of Myrtle Beach SC 1/5/16

Sammy came to us from an adoption group in Memphis that moves dogs from the track there to other adoption groups. He is a larger black male racing at 78lbs. He was a good racer that raced his entire career at top A level and ran at several tracks. He started at Birmingham then went to Naples Ft Myers and Flagler. He raced 77 races. Sammy turns 4 on December 20th. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Country Billings.  Sammy is very happy, outgoing and loving. He will chose to hang out with people over other activities. He passed his cat test easily and seems like he will be OK with cats with just a little supervision at first. Sammy is being fostered in an apartment and walks and potties nicely on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. He is a bit higher energy than the average greyhound and loves to run and play when he has access to a fenced area. He plays really well with other dogs large and small and encourages the other dogs at the dog park to try to catch him, but they rarely can. Even though he isn't a total couch potato, he still is happy sleeping most of the day as long as he gets a little exercise. Sammy doesn't have accidents in his crate even when his foster mom had an extra long day at work. He did try to mark things in the house when he first arrived, but quickly learned good house training. Sammy is very quiet in his kennel and is being fostered in an apartment so may be the perfect choice for apartment or townhouse living. The only time he makes noise is when he hears his foster mom coming in the front door after being gone. Sammy is a very sweet boy that is happy, silly and very charming. He likes kids and everyone else he meets and seems to have a great personality.

Stacy raced 41 races at several different tracks, Southland in Arkansas, and Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando in Florida. She was moved to Birmingham AL in June and only had 3 races there before she broke her leg badly in a race on June 13th and was unable to finish the race. She was splinted by the track vet and was brought to the track adoption kennel. They took her to a specialist who recommended surgery and performed that surgery on June 16th. Pro Greyhound a charitable greyhound rehab organization funded the expensive surgery which cost over $2000. Her surgery was very successful and her leg looks great, but she managed to break one of the pins. So Stacy had to have the pin and all the hardware removed a few weeks ago. She has recovered from the last surgery and is being released for adoption by our vets. She has healed up very well. Stacy's sire is the very famous Soprano Drive and her dam is Huska Oasis. She is a friendly, happy girl that seems very social and not stressed by new things. Stacy loves people and is very sweet. She is a small girl that raced at 56lbs. Stacy can be vocal in her kennel so would not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Stacy passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live in homes with either. As you can see from her picture, Stacy likes to snuggle and be close.

Stani is a big sweet girl with a lot of personality. She raced at 67lbs and is stocky and muscular and probably closer to 70lbs now. She has a beautiful, shiny black coat. Stani is happy, waggy and silly. She will turn 4 on December 10th. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Nikita Design. Stani raced 49 races and Flagler and Naples Ft Myers and was quickly up to the top A level and even competed in Stakes races. She had a career ending injury in April of 2014. She had a broken bone in her hock so she was sent back to a farm in Oklahoma to be a mom. Her leg has long healed and seems fine now. It doesn't prevent her from running around and playing normally. She doesn't have a noticeable limp, but may not be the best choice for dog sports or long hikes because those may aggravate an old injury. Stani doesn't have any pups listed on the database yet but if she had any they would be too young to register yet. Stani seems like a confident girl and likes to stand next to you leaning on you for love. Very sweet girl and gorgeous with that flashy white chest and beautiful coat. Stani was initially very interested in the cat until it slapped her. Then she play-bowed to it showing she was no threat. When that earned her another slap she wouldn't go anywhere near the cat again. She did fine with the small dog in her foster home and a toddler too. More as we get to know this stunning girl.

Mo came in from the Palm Beach Race Track. He also raced at Mardi Gras in Florida. He had hock injury in his last race on July 11th and was put in a splint then. From there he went to Pro Greyhound in Salisbury NC for rehab. Now he is healed up and is ready for adoption. Mo raced 25 races at 71lbs so is a mid sized guy. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Fraulein Becky. Mo turned 2 on July 28th so he is pretty young. He is a nice calm guy for his age and has been very well-behaved in his foster home. Mo recovered completely from his injury and he has been released by our vets to play and do whatever he wants to. Mo loves to chase balls. He has done fine with the small dog in his foster home and the small kids that visit frequently. He is a very sweet guy that his foster dad thinks will make an awesome pet. Mo can be just a little timid at first but warms up pretty fast. He has been with us for awhile because he just doesn't go straight up to strangers at first so doesn't show well. If you give him a couple of days to warm up, he is very loving and will definitely be your best friend.

Beretta is a very tiny girl that raced at 52lbs. She only has 2 races in Daytona Beach track and didn't do well in either of them. Beretta retired very young and still has some patches of puppy coat that she is losing. It looks like she may have been picked on by the other puppies in her litter because she has quite a few small old scars. Beretta has a long nose and a cute little overbite. She just turned 2 on November 4th so she still has some puppy playfulness and will need some exercise and appropriate chew toys. She will do best in a home with another dog because she gets her cues from them and follows the pack. She has done great on her potty training in her foster home and doesn't have accidents. She does well living with several small dogs and several large dogs in her foster home. Beretta's sire is Locall Torino and her dam is Where's Finaltee. This is a very sweet girl that does great with a large pack in her foster home. Her foster mom just loves her. She is friendly and very loving and so adorable!

Kimber is a very tiny, friendly girl that is darker brindle. She is short and stocky for a greyhound. Very cute! She is very very outgoing and is a natural sitter that sat a lot of the trip up. She just retired from the Daytona Beach track with her sister Kahr. She had a very short career of 2 races. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 52lbs. She is young and just turned 2 on October 21st. She is a playful, silly girl that will go pounce on toys and throw them around several times a day. She gives hugs and lots of kisses. She is the rare greyhound that will alert you if someone arrives with a bark so wouldn't be a good dog for an apartment. Since she is still young she is more playful and energetic than the average greyhound couch potato. Kimber easily passed her cat and small dog tests and showed no interest in either so we had her listed as good with cats. Since she has shown too much interested in the timid cat in her foster home that hides and runs from her. Since she is not interested in playing with or chasing cats that growl at her or slap at her we changed her to trainable now. She is a playful pup and just needs a home with a confident cat that lets her know who is boss. She will not be placed with a timid cat. Kimber is very focused on people and loves being with her people she is also good with the kids in her foster home. A very sweet little girl.
