Dorothy was a successful racer and was sent back to the farm for a second career as a mom. She did not have any puppies though and has now been retired and is ready to find a home and a couch. She is a sweet, outgoing, friendly, girl that seems to take everything happily in stride. Dorothy loves to give sweet kisses and is very gentle taking food from your hand. She travels well and seems to do very well with other dogs. Dorothy passed her cat and small dog tests and is living with cats in her foster home so would be fine for a house with cats or small dogs. She also seems to like children and seems like the type of dog that would be excellent in a home with kids. Dorothy likes to snuggle and adapted to her foster home like she had always lived in one. Nothing seems to bother her. Dorothy wants to be with people and is content to just lay at your feet. She doesn't have much white on her face and definitely doesn't look her age or even act her age. Dorothy was born on Feb 7th of 2003 and is a daughter of the famous Craigie Whistler. She is a super sweet, girl that has a lot of personality and a lot of love to give a lucky family.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Price Family of Myrtle Beach SC 3/29/15

Toni is a pup that came straight from the farm and never went to the race track. She just turned one on October 8th so is still very young. She is small and weighed 54lbs at her vet check. She never raced because of an injury on the farm. Another dog attacked her and removed most of the skin between her tail and hipbones in September. The wound was too large to stitch so had to heal up on its own slowly. The injury is mainly cosmetic and doesn't affect her ability to run or play. She will just have a large scar. Toni couldn't go off to race training with a big open wound so her owners held onto her for a couple of months to get her to the point that she could be transported to us from Kansas in November of 2014. Toni never completed the registration process and never got a racing name. She has been called Toni since a pup though. Her sire is the very famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Toni Works. Toni passed her cat and small dog tests and has been living in a foster home with an Italian Greyhound. She is a very good jumper and has been known to clear fences so needs a home with a 6 foot fence. Toni is calm in the house but loves doing laps and playing outside every time she goes outside to potty so she really needs a fenced yard to play in. She is a natural sitter. She crates well and is mostly quiet except at meal times when she whines some. Toni is not a confident girl and tends to be timid and jumpy. There is construction going on at her foster home and the noise of that scares her. She will take awhile to warm up to a new situation but once she warms up she is a friendly, silly, happy girl. She is likely to be pretty nervous at first when she is adopted and goes to a new home. She loves people and approaches most people wagging indoors, but sometimes outside she still is a bit timid and runs around just out of reach for a few moments until she gets her courage up to approach.

UPDATE 1/15/15: Toni went to our vet to have her spay and we had our vet do some reconstructive surgery on Toni's back to make it look better while she had her under. The reconstructive surgery was not successful. The good skin would not attach to the scar tissue and eventually sloughed off leaving another big open wound. So that meant more healing time for Toni.

UPDATE 3/4/15: Toni is finally nearly healed up and just about ready for adoption! Through her treatment Toni has been happy and acts like nothing is wrong. She continues her daily runs in the yard and doesn't even flinch when we put medicine on her wound. We really love this sweet girl!

Toni healed up completely although she always had a big scar. She was adopted 3/29/15 and renamed Princess Jasmine. She had her own little girl to love. Her family says she was the most wonderful gentle girl. She passed away suddenly in 2018 after a brief illness that resulted in a seizure that she couldn't be revived from. Sweet girl that left us way too young. RIP Princess Jasmine.

Fostered by (location):
Pruitt in Anderson
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Callahan Family of Central 2/19/12

Rarefeat is an extra large, tall, brindle male that raced at 83lbs. He is such a handsome well behaved guy! His birthday is May 5th and he will turn 4 then. He is an easy going guy that is very friendly and calm. Just walking up to people and wagging his tail politely and leaning in for love. We think he has potential as a great therapy dog. He is the grandson of a brood mom we adopted out named Greys Fiddle De and is very sweet like his mom. His father is the famous Stan's Boy Flyer. He goes potty on leash so would do fine in a home without a fenced yard like an apartment or townhouse. He is also very quiet which makes him a good candidate for apartment living. This is a sweet, easy guy because of his friendly, laid back personality. He is going to be a great dog for some lucky family. His foster family says he is very well behaved. He is cat friendly and does well with dogs of all sizes and is fostered with some tiny dogs. He is very gentle with children and seem to like them. If you like big dogs this is your guy! He is a gentle giant.

Rarefeat was adopted 2/19/12 and his name was changed to Rafe. Rafe blessed his family with his wonderful personality and love from 2012 until late December, 2017. Rafe loved swimming in the ocean, slept on many beds in many sunbeams, and just generally blessed everyone with his presence and affection. Rafe developed Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in one of his legs which ultimately led to him crossing the rainbow bridge. He will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed. Rafe "Rare Feat" was truly one of a kind.

Fostered by (location):
McCann Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Black family of Charlotte, 10.30.17

Free Bee just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida. She is a pretty tall girl for just 60lbs. She raced 142 races and was pretty good, racing at Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA and Southland in Arkansas and Naples Ft Myers in Florida before moving to Orange Park. She was mostly a B level racer but did compete in a top level stakes race. Although she turned 4 on April 9th, Free Bee still has a cute puppy look to her. She is VERY outgoing and gives hugs and just loves people. She loves playing with other dogs and especially loves balls that squeak and toys that squeak. She can be energetic for short spurts but calms down really well in the house and just wants to put her head in your lap and be close. Free Bee's sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Boc's Mc Raisen. She has been in a foster home with a calm older yorkie and has been fine with him. She loves playing with all the other greyhounds at a playgroup. We were told that she is a pretty confident girl and can be a little bossy at times. She seems like she is going to be a fun girl for a family that wants a playful, silly, girl. She does potty well on leash and is leash walked at her foster home but she would probably do best with a fenced yard where she can chase balls and run and play since she enjoys that so much. Although she has been living with cats at her foster home they are having to keep her away from them because she is too interested in the to be comfortable with so she needs a home with no cats. Her foster home says she is the most loving dog they have had, even more loving than their personal greyhound. She is super sweet!

Bee was only in her adoptive home for less than a year and died suddenly in June of 2018. The vet thinks she may have had a blood clot that went to her brain or heart. RIP Bee!

Hit is a happy, waggy girl that is calm and well behaved. She loves kids and raced in a kennel that had small kids in it frequently and was great with them. She raced at 60lbs. Hit celebrated her 4th birthday on March 6th. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry! Hit is a loving little girl that seems like she will make a great pet because of her calm, easy going personality. She passed her cat test at the track but has been a little interested in some of the cats she has seen since. She seems to respond well to correction so we think she is trainable and will be glad to evaluate her with your specific cats. She is good with small and large dogs so should be fine in a home with other dogs. Hit did have a broken hock October 9th of 2010 that ended her racing career. She has completely healed since then but may always have a slight limp. She stilll loves to run and play and doesn't let the old break slow her down a bit. This cutie can still turn on the greyhound speed when she wants to. This is a wonderful little girl that is very well behaved and is going to be a wonderful loving pet for some very lucky family.

Mister Nino raced at the Mobile Alabama Track briefly in September of 2006. He only has 6 races listed and only won one of those. He may have raced some at Birmingham as well because their races weren't always reported at that time. We got Mister Nino in December of 2007 from his race owners Kevin Fish and Heather Powers. Mister Nino was a very sweet guy that passed his cat test with just a little initial interest. He was born on 12/28/04 so turned 3 right after he arrived. His sire was the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Tycam Amstel. A previous adopter, Judy White, wanted to foster him with the idea of adopting him if he got along with her cat and other greyhound. He did great with them so she decided to keep him. Mister Nino lived a long happy life with her and passed away peacefully at 14.5 years old in May of 2018.

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.

Val was adopted in June of 2016 and was called Bodie by his family. Bodie passed away in May of 2018 after a 6 month battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). He will be missed by his family and everyone that met this sweet goofy guy.

Sky Rose is an 8 year old brindle female that has been in a home for years. She only raced a short time and was originally adopted in 2008. Her owner was forced to return her because she is in the hospital battling cancer. Sky Rose has been a great companion and is a wonderful girl and this is very hard for her owner. Sky Rose is a little timid at first but is warming up quickly to her foster family. Even though she is usually a bit shier with men, she is following her foster dad around already. Her sire is Yankee Patriot and her dam is Miss Van Gogh. She turned 8 on December 16th and raced at 60lbs. She weighed in at 62 at the vets. She was checked out by our vet and got everything updated. Sky Rose got a fresh dental, had a few bad teeth pulled and has been cleared for adoption. This is a sweet, girl that has already lived in a home so is home acclimated and has good house manners. She has lived with cats and the cat in her last home curled up and slept with her. She is also great with small dogs and kids. Because she is over 8 years old Sky Rose qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200. Be sure to click on her other photos to see some of her when she first retired and was much younger.

Sky Rose was adopted by the Grover family of Columbia on 5/24/14 and lived a wonderful life with them for 4 more years until May of 2018 when she passed away peacefully in her sleep at nearly 12 years old. Her family will miss her crowding them out of bed at night and following them into the bathroom; nuzzling up to their chest and holding her paw over arms. She was their first greyhound and will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Patel family 11/26/14

Patsy originally came to us from the Orange Park track in Jacksonville Fl. She actually raced in Sarasota Florida and in Dubuque IA though and never actually competed in Orange Park according to her race record. She is a 66lb red female that raced 40 races. Patsy turned 3 on July 25th. Her sire is from Ireland named Team Record and her dam is Pat C Fluctuate. Patsy is a happy, friendly girl with a great personality. She is used to being around kids because her trainers brought their kids to work with them and she loved the kids. In a greyhound racing kennel all the dogs wake up and get up when someone comes in or opens their crate so sleep startle is rarely ever seen and definitely isn't a problem. Since she arrived we have found that she doesn't like to be touched when she is sleeping. For this reason we prefer to place her in a home without kids or a home with older kids that are old enough to understand not to bother her while she is sleeping. Her foster home has been working on this behavior and Patsy is responding well to training. Patsy has lived with a small hyper dog but would do better with larger, calmer dogs that will not jump on her when she is sleeping for the same reason. She has lived with cats and is good with them. She gives kisses and loves to play with toys. A very happy, friendly girl and what a GORGEOUS girl! She is very sweet and well behaved and has great house manners.

Patsy was adopted 11/26/14 by the Patel Family and lived happily until April of 2018 when she passed away due to Lymphoma. She was not quite 7 years old. Her family says that adopting her was one of the greatest experiences of their lives and they will always be greyhound people. RIP Patsy.

Adoption Status: Adopted to Moore Family of Greenville, 3.19.11

Ruby is a beautiful girl who's starting over looking for her new home because her family is having a baby. They think she may be too playful and is likely to knock a toddler down. Ruby loves older kids though and is playful and would be a fun dog for a family with kids big enough to play with a dog. She is a wonderful dog that has been a loving family companion. She is healthy and completely up to date on her vetting and will be moving to her new home with some of her essentials as a gift to help her transition. Ruby has displayed varying responses to the cats she has been around in the family home. She will chase them, but will stop when they turn and face her. She might do OK with a family with cats that are confident around dogs and a family who is willing and able to set rules. Ruby's family describes her as a wonderful, people-oriented dog that should settle in happily with almost anyone. Lets get this beautiful girl home for the new year!

Ruby was adopted in 2011 and spent several years living at the Phoenix-Greenville's Inn in SC with the Moore Family. She enjoyed greeting hotel guests, who loved her soft fur and friendliness. She later moved to Athens GA with her family and had a long happy life. She passed away peacefully on March 21st, 2018 due to complications from a neurological disorder. Ruby was a sweet, wonderful girl who brought joy to all who knew and loved her.

She sleeps peacefully and quietly in her crate and has been totally clean without any accidents inside. This is a VERY nice girl who will be the perfect first greyhound or addition to an established pack. The first family who meets her for adoption will fall head over heels in love!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Castlen family 8.24.13

Monty's owner asked us for assistance in finding a new home. They transferred from the UK about three years ago, and unfortunately the owner is being transferred again and can't take Monty this time. Monty raced only 36 races in the UK at Yarmouth, Romford and Hove and Brighton then was retired at age 2 due to a minor injury. His sire is Droopys Vieri and his dam is Oh So Wonderful. Monty has lived with two different small dogs in the past, he passed his cat test with no interest but has show some correctable interest in a couple of cats since so we listed him as trainable with cats. His owner tells us he is very low maintenance, very house trained, and always prefers to be inside with his humans whenever possible. We were told he could be a little shy at first with strangers but at our recent meet and greet he was trying to squeeze in to get love when people were petting other dogs. He seemed very friendly and social. He isn't a real needy guy though and is pretty comfortable just laying around. He isn't fond of thunderstorms or fireworks and lays under a table at his foster home when either is going on. He doesn't like being hugged or having his ears messed with so we have him listed as no small kids since it is hard to explain to small kids why that shouldn't be done. Monty made friends with everyone at the vet clinic during his dental and seems to be a very nice, well behaved boy. He seems like a very bright guy that quickly figured out how to work folding babygate - he just pushed it to the side and walked right though. He's ready to bless the next family with his unique story and sweet companionship! A couple of our members have made generous donations to cover Monty's adoption fee!

Monty has a wonderful home and passed away just before Christmas in December of 2016. RIP Monty!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Adams Family of Candler, NC 11/7/09

Rachel is a grinner and sometimes gets very carried away and chomps her teeth while she is grinning. Don't be fooled - she wouldn't dream of using her teeth for anything but smiling. Smiling is a submissive gesture in greyhounds and the smilers usually make wonderful pets that want to please. Rachel gets along great with other dogs.There is a very irritating mini-doxie in her foster home but Rachel has never once been bothered by him. She loves to go for walks and has even done long hikes with her foster mom. Rachel has some separation anxiety, but that is beginning to fall away and in time may not be an issue. She once followed her foster mom from room to room but now is even OK sleeping in a separate bedroom. She is most comfortable if she is in a crate when she is alone and that keeps her calm and out of trouble. She loves to go for rides and has not shown any sign of separation anxiety in a car and will just lay on the seat and wait for you if you get back. Rachel is a super sweet, outgoing girl that wants to be with you and wants to please. She is smart and learns quickly and has picked up on house manners fast. What a beautiful girl! She is going to make a wonderful pet for a very lucky family.

Rachel was adopted in 2009 by the Adams Family of Candler NC. When they had to move to Qatar in 2014, Rachel couldn't go. The Keener family took her in and lost her to acute renal failure on Feb 2nd of 2018 at 11.5 years old. RIP Rachel.

Robbie is a handsome white boy with a few black spots. He came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced at 72lbs and will turn 4 on August 21st. He is tall and narrow for his weight. He raced 117 races at Orlando and also Birmingham and Sarasota. He got up to B level and won some races and placed in a lot more. His sire is Rhythmless and his dam is Al Kiowa Carbon. Robbie seems like a friendly guy that likes people. He loves the girl dogs and spends most of his time flirting without much success. He doesn't give up easily even when faced with total rejection. Robbie is a sweet boy that just wants a little love. He can be a bit dramatic and squealed when he got a pill even though he didn't flinch when he got his vaccinations. 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. 

Robbie was adopted in 2016 and had a great but short life with his new family. He was lost to cancer in late 2017. RIP Robbie. You will be missed.

Kane is a gorgeous light fawn boy with dark ears and dark hair tips, almost sabling. he will celebrate his 5th birthday on Nov 8th. He raced at 66lbs so is a smaller male. Kane had a long successful race career of 200 races at Orange Park in Jacksonville Fl. He broke his leg in his last race and his racing owner paid to have our vet do a surgical repair and for his boarding there while it healed up for the last couple of months. Unfortunately he developed a dangerous bone infection after surgery and he ended up losing his back right leg. He gets around fine without the leg though and as long as he stays thin he should be able to do stairs, jump on and off furniture, and run and play like any other dog. Our vet says Kane has been a wonderful guest there and has become a favorite of her staff. He just hangs out in the treatment room with her own tiny dogs and the cats that live there and is very good with all small animals and all people he has met. He has been very good with all the treatment he has recieved and just loves people and attention. He is very very calm and well behaved. Our vet said she wished she could keep him herself because he is one of the sweetest greyhound she has ever treated. This tripod is a very special boy in more ways than one.

Kane was in a wonderful home since 2013. He broke his remaining back leg and it was unable to be fixed. He crossed the bridge in Jan of 2018.

Rosie is a drop dead gorgeous girl that was also blessed with a wonderful personality. She is curious about everything and wants to check everything out at first but calms down nicely and is well behaved. When she first got to her foster home she greeted the other dogs then found the toys and started to play. Definitely a dog that will be comfortable and not phased by new things and going new places. This stunning girl is a larger girl that raced at 67lbs. Her birthday is October 15th. She is a very happy, outgoing girl that is very loving towards people and she seems to get along well with other dogs as well. Rosie loves to play with toys especially stuffed animals that squeak. Her racing owner says that Rosie and her mom both had a wonderful sense of humor and are fun dogs. Both were a joy to have in their kennel and never caused any type of problem. Rosie did fantastic at her first meet and greet and would greet everyone she saw. She liked children and adults and would bump them with her nose to get more petting if they stopped petting her. Rosie was a good racer but was retired because of a limp that would appear off and on after some races. It stems from an old injury to her hock that she had as a puppy. It has been looked at by our vet and won't effect her life as a pet since she won't run as hard playing as she did at the race track. She loves to run and play with other dogs and that doesn't seem to bother her or cause any limping. Walks don't bother her either and she would love to go for walks with her new owner. Rosie is a great girl that would be good in just about any home or situation.

Rosie had a wonderful life with her family and crossed the bridge on Dec 1st 2017 due to cancer. RIP Rosie you will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
Owens in Greenville SC
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 decided to adopt him. He only lived another year and a half and his seizures became more difficult to control. The Sanso Family lost him to seizures that wouldn't stop in October of 2017.

Courageous is a beautiful, sweet girl that is very friendly. She is laid back and well behaved. She is just retiring from her life as a mom and had one litter of pups more than a year ago. She was a fantastic mom and chose to spend an entire year raising her pups. They finally had to separate them when the pups went off to race training and she missed them so much. She travels well and just laid down in the car on the trip up from Florida most of the way. She did come up every now and then to check in and get petted. She did fine with two smaller dogs she has met so far so seems like she will be OK with them. She needs to be cat tested. Courageous is a grinner and will do the famous greyhound smile for you when she is happy. There was a lake on the farm where she has lived and she reportedly loves water and likes to swim. More as we get to know her.

Courageous was renamed Emma and lived in her adoptive home until December of 2017 when she passed away suddenly due to cancer. RIP Emma.

Apple is a tiny, black girl with a white face that raced at just 55lbs. She just retired from the Orlando race track. She lived in a foster home with a cat and a bird and has been around the tiniest of dogs and did fine with everything so far so seems to be a very low prey drive girl that can live with anything. She was born on September 7th of 2007 so is 4 years old. Her foster mom says she is sweet and friendly and always does the right thing and is so well behaved. She is quiet in her crate and clean in the house and even asks to go outside when she needs to go. She follows her foster mom around like a shadow and loves to be with her. She will stand forever with her head in your lap for petting and will choose to lay on cold tile next to you over a dog bed across the room. Her foster mom says that she will be a blessing to the lucky family that adopts her. Because she is a quiet girl she should be OK for apartment or townhouse living.

Apple was renamed Rooney and lived with the Young family of Columbia until she passed away from Pancreatitis in December of 2017. She will be missed.

Peterbilt is a gigantic, dark brindle male that raced at 88lbs. He came from the Daytona race track and had a very short racing career. He never actually won a race and was retired after 8 races. He is a very friendly, happy guy that still needs cat testing but is fine with small dogs. Peterbilt seems pretty calm for a guy that isn't even 2 yet. He will turn two on November 7th. His sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Pasampsi. He is a happy guy that doesn't seem to be too worried about anything. He just laid down on the haul up from Florida. When another dog growled at him he curled up smaller and turned his head to avoid bumping anyone so he seems like he is just a gentle giant.

Pete was adopted by the Pruitt family of Anderson SC 11/11/12. He became a regular at greyhound events, encouraging greyhound adoption. He lived with other greyhounds and yorkies in his home. He always was a gentle giant and won several largest greyhound contests because he was so big. He crossed the bridge on 12/13/17 shortly after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Pete was his mom's heart and will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the McManis Family of Easley SC 6/21/17

Maddie was initially adopted through another group that has allowed us to re-home her. She was abandoned by her owners a couple of months ago at a boarding kennel. They never returned to pick her up after boarding her there and all attempts to reach them were ignored. So now this sweet older gal is looking for a home. When we took her in, she had a mouth full of bad teeth that had caused her to have difficulty eating and some weight loss. We had her vetted and all the bad teeth pulled so she is feeling much better now. She also had blood work done and appears to be a healthy girl. Maddie is adorable with a very unique roman nose and half a tail. She never raced and was in her previous home since she was very young. She is living with small dogs in her foster home and lived with a male husky in her previous home- he was also abandoned at the boarding kennel.  She also passed her cat test without any interest. Maddie just turned 9 on March 28th. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Jax Cleopatra. Because she is a senior, Maddie qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. Maddie is a sweet, friendly girl that is calm and well behaved. She has been going outside to do her business at her foster home like a good girl. She kennels quietly so would probably be a very good choice for an apartment. This sweet, well behaved girl is a one of a kind that will stand out in every crowd of greyhounds.

Maggie had only months in her new home and passed away suddenly on November 20th 2017 from a ruptured splenic mass.

He is described as the happiest boy ever by his trainer. She says he loves cuddles and attention. He turned 4 on April 11th. He did very well on the trip up to the vets and got along well with all the other dogs in a crowded situation. He was pretty good on leash and didn't pull much. He did seem calm and well behaved. He didn't pay much attention to the small dogs at the vet clinic or in his foster home. He also passed his cat test. He politely sniffed the cats and couldn't figure out why they popped him on the nose and weren't friendly with him. So he should be able to live with cats or small dogs. Will did complain loudly about being in his kennel when he first arrived so may not be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse.

Will was adopted by a wonderful family and had a great but short life. He passed away after a freak accident while playing in October of 2017. He ran into a tree in his own backyard and was gone instantly.

Alan is an eight year old boy that is very sweet, calm and well behaved. He is a light brindle with beautiful golden eyes. Alan has so much white in his fur already that he looks like a blue brindle. He has lived in a home for years and was returned with his housemate Fargo because his owner's severe health problems made it impossible for him to care for the dogs anymore. He lived with quite a few other dogs in the home of several different breeds and was good with all of them. He is good with small dogs and passed his cat test so should be fine living with either. Alan and Fargo are in separate foster homes and seem to be doing fine being separated so we will adopt them out separately unless someone wants both of them. Alan is a perfect gentleman and just wants snuggle up and lean on you. He would probably make an awesome therapy dog because of his gentle, calm, friendly nature and because he loves children. Because he has lived in a home for years, Alan is not used to being crated and can be a little vocal about it. He is well behaved out of the crate however so may not need one. Alan is an extra large male and weighed in at the vets at 92lbs and is not fat. Don't let his size worry you though. He is very good on leash and very easy to handle. He is so laid back and really a gentle giant of a guy. He did great at his first meet and greet going up to everyone for love, especially the children. This sweet guy will really steal your heart. Alan has a clean bill of health from our vet and is ready to go home. He just had a fresh dental and got all his shots.

Alan had a wonderful home and lots of love until he passed away in his sleep Jan 7th of 2014. RIP Alan the King of the Couch! We hope you are having all the bananas and kitty food snacks you want at the bridge. We love you and we will always miss you!

Stimulus is a very large, dark brindle male that raced at 80lbs. He has the most beautiful, shiny, dark mahogany looking coat and is just stunning with his white feet and chest. He is a calm but friendly boy that just celebrated his 3rd birthday on April 4th. His sire is the famous Dodgem By Design so he has a lot of half brothers and sisters that we have adopted out. He is a littermate to another dog we just adopted out named Eureka. Stimulus let himself out of his run to join his sister Eureka at the vet clinic. He was out all night with the vet clinic cat and didn't chase him or hurt him. He passed his cat test at the track and subsequent cat tests that we have done. In the middle of all of these very positive results with cats he did become interested in chasing cats he met in one home. It was only that one time and was definitely because he had gotten excited by chasing toys right before being introduced to the cats. We have him listed as "trainable" because of that even though he has shown no interest whatsoever in cats before or since. Stimulus did great at a meet and greet at Petco and seemed to enjoy all the attention. He has started playing with toys in his foster home and will throw them and chase them. He lives with a tiny dog that is squirrel sized and fast moving in his current foster home so seems like an exceptionally low prey drive dog that would be good in any home. He likes the kids he has met and seems like he would be a wonderful family dog. He is a big guy but he is gentle, calm and well behaved so seems like he will be an easy guy that would make a wonderful family pet. He has been living with a very small dog and a large bird in his foster home and is fine with both of them now.

Stimulus was adopted and renamed Cash. He passed away in September of 2017 after fighting cancer for some time.

Harry is a full littermate to tiny little Road Rumbler, already adopted by GC. Harry follows the well-known history of Maryville Rumble pups by being an awesome, easily-adaptable boy. His dam is Greys Tarmac who we also placed. He is a smaller male racing at 69lbs. DOB 8/4/2008. He only has 10 races listed a few at Derby Lane and one at Sanford Orlando. He was the very first greyhound that his racing owner ever owned so had a special place in her heart. She brought him home for a month while waiting for an adoption group to take him. Harry was named for her friend's father. He is very mellow and lives in his foster home with a cat, walking by and hardly giving a glance. He's already been vetted and has responded well to house-training. He sleeps well in his crate at night too. He is good with kids, cats and other dogs. He played nicely with the two labs in his racing owner's home and loved to play fetch with them. What a nice, all-around greyhound ready for his new home!

Harry was adopted ion 2011 and renamed Bear. Bear was a Therapy Dog and a blood donor and was a wonderful ambassador for the greyhound breed until he passed away on August 12th of 2017.

She is good on leash and is a very, sweet, happy, outgoing girl. She was an easy well behaved girl so we gave her to a first time foster home. This is a great gal.

Faith is a small girl that raced at 55lbs. She is a light fawn that turned 3 on March 3rd. Faith raced 111 races in Abilene KS, Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA and Sanford Orlando in Florida. Even though she ran a lot of races she only won 5 of them. Her sire is Kiowa Pretence and her dam is Sheena Shines. She is described as being a very friendly social girl that goes up to everyone for love. She is calm and well behaved though. Faith has been pretty overwhelmed since she arrived and has been pretty shy with us. Since she was so outgoing with her trainers at the track we are sure she will warm up fast. She passed her small dog test and didn't even get up from laying down when she saw him.

Faith was renamed Neala and lived happily in her adoptive home with the Persic family until she passed away suddenly on 6/26/17 due to either a blood clot or a brain tumor.

Bowden in Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Marion Family of Maryland and Huntersville, NC 11/15/14

Kiska was a good racer that raced 172 races at Derby Lane in St Pete Florida. She retired from racing in February of 2010 and began her second career as a mom. She had 2 litters since and raised 11 pups. Kiska has now been retired from that career and is ready to be a pet. She just turned 8 years old on June 16th. Her sire is the famous Gable Dodge and her dam is Flying AC DC. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Kiska has done great in her foster home. She is very confident and doesn't let anything bother her. She gets along great with all the other dogs in her foster home large and small. Kiska walks great on leash and loves to go for walks. She loves to play with squeaky toys even more. She is a very sweet girl that will come up and lean against you for affection. It doesn't show so much in her photos but she is a beautiful light fawn with dark sable tips. She is good with children that treat dogs respectfully but she did take offense to a child that crawled on her and laid on her. So she needs to be placed with children old enough to be taught that you should never lay on or crawl on dogs because it hurts them. Because Kiska is over 8 years old she qualifies for a discounted adoption fee of $200.

Kiska was adopted by a wonderful family in 2014 and had a wonderful life. She was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2016 and survived until March of 2017. RIP Kiska.

Age:

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Covard family of Graniteville SC 8/10/15

Cisco came from the Birmingham Race Track adoption kennel. He raced only 2 schooling races at Tri State in WV in December of 2012, then was moved to Birmingham AL. No official races on him that we could find at that track. Cisco was adopted out from the adoption kennel there and had been in an adoptive home for a little while. He was returned to the adoption kennel in Birmingham because he was "afraid of the dark". They ended up sending him to our group and we figured out that it wasn't really fear of the dark, it is just that he doesn't want to go outside unless another dog is with him, day or night. In spite of not wanting to go outside to potty he would hold it forever in the house and rarely had an accident. Cisco is a very good boy that tries hard to please. He has done great with other dogs around and regularily goes for walks even in the dark as long as another dog is there for company. Cisco's sire is Afleet Alex and his dam is Kelsos Corkhill. He turned 4 on November 12th. So far Cisco has been a very calm, friendly guy that likes everyone and is a super sweet guy. His foster homes have been tempted to keep him because he is so easy to fall in love with. Cisco passed his small dog tests but needs a home without cats. He is a very quiet boy in his kennel so may be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. He just needs to be in a home with at least one other dog to help his confidence. Cisco is home acclimated, very loving and super cute! He would be an easy first or 5th greyhound.

Cisco was adopted by his foster family and passed away in April of 2017. RIP Cisco!

Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Crouch (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Little, 4.23.11

Lolita is a pretty little 62lb light fawn girl. This is a littermate to one of our prior placements named Dim Sum and has the same mother as Blondie, Annie and Katie who we placed that have become wonderful pets. She comes from a breeder that hand raises only one litter of racing greyhound pups a year. Most of their dogs are very social and very people oriented. Her racing owner says she is the most loveable, snuggler that he has ever had and is his favorite greyhound of all the ones he has raised. He had a hard time letting her go but already has quite a few greyhound pets in his home so really can't keep another. She has been living with little dogs at his farm and gets along well with them. He says she doesn't pay any attention to the barn cats either so should be fine with either. So far she has been a little overwhelmed with the big move and has been very quiet and subdued and seems like she may be a little shy initially until she gets comfortable in a new situation. Her owner assures us that as soon as she warms up that she will be an incredibly devoted pet. Lolita is the cutest thing with these big doe eyes and stand up ears. She just stares up at you looking for cues on what to do next. When we weighed her at the vets she stood on the scale and didn't move once she was placed there. When we put her in her crate on the hauler she jumped right in but had to be given permission and encouragement to come back out when it was time. She seems like she will be a real easy dog that is going to look to her owner for all her cues and will want to please. She retired and has been living on a farm with her racing owner for awhile and hasn't been in a crate for awhile. She has been a little vocal about her dislike of the crate so may not be the best apartment dog unless she improves.

Lolita lived with her family for 6 years before passing away due to Lymphoma in early 2017.

Shelby has been in an adoptive home for years. She was originally placed by a group in Michigan but moved down here with her family. The place the family moved to here didn't allow pets over 25lbs though so Shelby is looking for a new home. She is a very sweet, friendly girl. She already has good house manners and is good with cats, small dogs and kids. Her family said that she doesn't use the crate anymore and doesn't get into anything when she is out all day. She is a quiet, laid back girl but she still loves to run and play in the yard. Shelby only has 11 races listed at the now closed Dairyland Race Track in 2006 and 2007. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Cals Undefined. Her foster family says she is very sweet and easy. Very well behaved and is a fun girl that acts much younger than she is. Because of her age Shelby qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200.

Shelby had a great life with her family and passed away due to a nasal tumor in early 2017.

Fostered by (location):
Myrtle Beach (Crocker)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Rutkowski, 8.09

Hank was born in 2004 and celebrated his birthday on Dec 27th - the day he officially retired from racing.  Hank is a super friendly guy that wants to be with people more than anything else. He walks wonderfully on leash because he just wnats to be right next to you. This tall guy has lots of personality and couldn't be any sweeter. He crates quickly but needs another quiet dog for company because he dislikes being left entirely alone. Hank likes to go for rides in the car. He passed his small dog test and while initially a little interested in the cat, responded well to correction and quickly lost interest. He should be trainable with cats with careful introductions and a few reminders on what is expected. Hank isn't comfortable in a home with the activity that comes with small children. This is a precious 'velcro doggy' who wants a quiet family to bond with. Owners who are home most of the time would be his dream!

Hank was adopted in 2009 and had a wonderful life with his family until he passed away in February of 2017 at 12 years old. He will be missed by his family and everyone that met him.
