Jojo came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. She raced 108 races at Orlando, Flagler, and Naples Ft Myers. Jojo was pretty good racing at the top A level a lot of the time. She just turned 4 on April 18th. Her sire is Fuzzys Cannon and her dam is Flat Out Uma. We placed one of her littermates Fuzzys Uma earlier so are excited to get Jojo too. We also placed a half brother by the same mom AJN Cowboy Drive. Both are wonderful, friendly, loving pets. Jojo raced at 63lbs. Jojo is a friendly, calm girl that follows you around and stares up into your eyes to get attention. 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 turns 6 on May 26th. She passed her small dog tests so should be ok to live with small dogs but she needs a home without cats. 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. She would do best in a home with older kids that could understand not to bother her when she is sleeping.

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.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Styles Sanso Family of Florida 4/3/16

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!

Sammy is a red, male, greyhound that just arrived from a greyhound farm in Abilene Kansas.

He is a pretty red male that seems calm. He is friendly and was picked as an easy guy that would do well in our first time foster home. 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.

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!

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):

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.

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.

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. We initially got her to place when she was just 1.5 years old. She has been in a home since February of 2014 but her family is having to return her because of a very serious illness in the family. 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.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Janet
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
red brindle female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
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.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Fitz
Age:
5
Color/Gender:
Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McGraw (Columbia, SC)
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.

Age:
Puppy
Color/Gender:

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Clark (Simpsonville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Stenhouse Family of Charlotte, NC 1/16/16

Butters was the result of an unplanned pregnancy. Her mother is JS Lil Bit Tipsy and her dad is a greyhound but we aren't sure who. 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.

She recovered fully from the injury and has no exercise restrictions but they chose to retire her anyway just to be safe. Pitch raced at 60lbs and she turned 2 on Jan 5th. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is O Ya Chug Alug. She is doing well in foster care and is a very loving, sweet girl that gives kisses. She is also very smart and figured out the doggie door right away. She is a calm, well behaved dog that loves affection but won't bother you all the time to get it. She gets along with all the dogs in her foster home and seems like a very nice girl.

Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Weidman in Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kaage Family of Evans GA 1/15/16

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.
