Adoption Status: Adopted by the Owens Family of Simpsonville SC 10/11/05

Daisy came to us as a puppy. She was too shy to race and flunked out of training because she just was so scared that she couldn't really be handled by people. It took months of patience to be able to get this shy little girl to warm up and by that time her foster home decided to keep her. Daisy came from a farm near Tallahassee Florida and was going to race at the now closed Jefferson County Kennel Club Race Track if she had made it through training. Her farm was near that track and her owner had a couple of race kennels there. Some of her littermates weren't as shy and did race there. Daisy never actually finished her registration process and didn't get an official racing name since she flunked out of training. Daisy was born on March 15th 2004 and we got her just a little over a year later. Daisy warmed up to her adoptive family but was always afraid of children because she had never seen kids at her farm. Daisy's sire was Tame Game and her dam was Barts Cookie. We ended up placing 6 of her littermates. Only two of them were as shy as Daisy. She was one of the fuzziest greyhounds we have ever seen with a thick coat and very fuzzy tail. Daisy lived with the Owens family for 13 years and passed away at 4.5 years old in October of 2018. Be sure to look at her other pictures to see how much her coloring changed over the years.

Fostered by (location):
Dyer Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Wiltsie family of Duncan 8/16/16

Willy came in from the Palm Beach Race track. He never actually raced there. In schooling races he would try to chase the lure but could only run slowly around the track and couldn't keep up with the other greyhounds at all. So he retired without an official race. When we took him to our vet we found out there was a reason that he couldn't run. He has a very weak heart that is failing. Our vet guesses that Willy only has about a year to live. Our vet decided to adopt him and give him the best care and meds he can possibly have in what little time he has left. Willy is a sweet, brindle boy that is very loving. His sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Rosalina. He is a very young guy that won't even turn 2 until October 29th. 

Willy lived a great but short life with Dr Wiltsie. She was able to give him more time than she thought and he lived until September 13th 2018. Willy was also known as the Goat. He went to work with his mom at Healthpointe Veterinary Clinic and was spoiled rotten by the staff there. Goodbye sweet WillyGoat. You will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
Fulton (Augusta, GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted to Plauche Family of Brunswick, GA 3/10/12

Kareem has been in a home before so is home acclimated and has good house manners. He has lived with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. He is a friendly, loving guy and very sweet. He is a smaller guy that raced at just 69lbs. Kareem's birthday is December 12th. Kareem's only negative is that he is very food motivated and has shown some possessiveness over his food occasionally. We are working on that with him. Because of that we think he would do better in a home with no children even though he has lived with children and has always been gentle with them. Kareem is such a gorgeous guy!

Kareem was called Mr Big after he was adopted and was with his family nearly 7 years. He passed away on October 1st of 2018. He is remembered as the sweetest, silliest, funniest, snuggliest, most loving boy his owners could ever have asked for. He will be missed terribly. Run free and fast, big guy.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Lockman, 5.27.14

Heart is a littermate to Rumble that is arriving with her. She was called Racin when she was racing but has been called Heart since at the farm so has two names. She was a better racer than her sister starting out at Derby Lane winning most of her top level A races then moved to Southland in Arkansas to race in AA races. She only raced 45 races and got bumped in a turn when she was at the top of her game and was injured in January of 2010. Heart raced at 67lbs and is a daughter to Wheelie Cool who we also placed. Her sire is Maryville Rumble. She was born Oct 13th of 2006. Heart went to Kansas to became a mom after she was retired and has 4 litters of puppies (26) that are already racing. Now she has retired from being a mom and is ready to start her new career as a pet. Her trainer says both girls were calm well behaved dogs that he loved having the kennel. More as we get to know her.

Heart's name was changed to Raisen after adoption. She was with them 4 years before she passed away in her sleep in October of 2018 after an illness.

Fostered by (location):
Crouch (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Congrats to the Fox Family of Aiken 2/2/13

Tom is a striking small, young, bright red, brindle boy that weighs 65lb and is mostly red without a lot of striping. He passed his cat and small dog tests and is OK to live with either. Tom was pretty shy when he first arrived but after living in an adoptive home for a year has become much more outgoing. Tom is an economy return that is available again through no fault of his own. His owner loved him and tried to keep him but just couldn't do it. Greyhounds rarely make good watchdogs but Tom may be the exception to that rule. He will bark a couple of barks to let you know people have arrived at the house. For this reason Tom would probably not be the best dog for an apartment or townhouse. Tom walks great on leash and is a happy boy that has good house manners. He does need to go outside every 4 or 5 hours and can't hold it for an entire work day like some greyhounds can. He will need someone that can come home at lunch to let him out or someone that works shorter days. We have him marked older kids only because loud running children have made him nervous in the past. He has been absolutely fine with kids at the meet and greets he has gone to and with visiting children but living with small kids would probably be stressful for him. We think Tom would do best in a home with other dogs to hang out with when people leave because he does seem to stress when he is left totally alone but does much better when he is with other dogs. Tom celebrated his 4th birthday on Christmas day. Just look at that cute puppy face! Already home acclimated too!

Tom passed away in 2018. He will be missed very much.

Maddy is a tiny fawn girl that only weighs 50lbs but should weigh 56lbs according to her racing weight. She celebrates her 7th birthday on December 22nd. She is a return that has already been in a home for years so already has good house manners and is well behaved. She is a very sweet loving girl but can be a little timid at first and we think loud fast moving kids are likely to scare her so we listed her as older children only. She passed her small dog test so can live with them but still needs cat testing. She is calm and sweet and so adorable! Maddy's sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is TM's Very Few Do.

After she was adopted by the Mitchell family, they returned her to Project Racing Home in Randleman NC. That group let us know that they rehomed her with another family. They let us know that Maddie passed away in 2018.

When people leave he needs to have other dogs around. He doesn't do well being left entirely by himself and gets stressed. Buddy is a super sweet guy that is very loving.

Buddy crossed the rainbow bridge in 2018 and will be missed

She had 3 pups in January of 2009 and now has been retired from that life too. Mai was born on 3/24/05. She has settled into her new foster home very nicely. She walks very well on leash & potties on leash, crates well & loves to go on car rides. Mai can be an active girl & just loves playing with her toys, squeakies best of all!! She's gotten along very well with long dogs & 5 lb dogs in her foster homes. She can get a little protective of toys she's playing closely with tho so is learning manners on proper sharing. She's a small to average size girl at around 62 lbs & has a gorgeous petite face. We got to introduce her to stairs which she took in stride with a little practice. Mai would love to have 2 legged or 4 legged siblings to play with & a fenced yard or play dates to stretch her legs every so often. She is a social butterfly & enjoys going to meet & greets to show off her beauty & meet everyone that will stop to pet her. May also enjoys the quiet moments of snuggling on the floor & would fit into almost any home!!

Mai was loved by the Fischer family and was loved very much. She crossed the bridge in 2017 at 12 years old from Osteosarcoma - bone cancer

Mercy is a white female that has black ticking (freckles or dalmation spots). She just turned four April 23 and raced at 60lbs. Mercy is a fun, playful, energetic girl. She was fine with a medium sized dog that she was tested with at the track but was marginal with the cats in her cat test - not horrible but not great either so they think she may not be safe with them. We will do more testing after she is vetted to see how she is with smaller dogs and may redo her cat test to see if how well she responds to training with the cats.

Mercy was adopted by the Reich family 5/9/11 and was very much loved up until she passed away 3/21/18

Adoption Status: Adopted by McKee, 10.27.11

Goofy is a tiny guy that is smaller than most female greyhounds. This cute guy actually grins. That is why we picked him out of all the available dogs at the race kennel. If anyone got near his kennel he would give you a big grin and try to kiss your hand through the bars while he was wagging his whole body. If someone talked to him he would spin around in his crate in happiness. He is such a cute little, happy, loving guy we just couldn't resist him. He potties well on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard. He has great house manners and likes children and has lived with them in his foster home. He gets along well with the greyhounds in his foster home males and females. He still needs to be tested with cats. Goofy is a fun, playful, silly guy that loves playing with toys and balls. His foster family has nicknamed him Hollywood because he is always smiling and looks ready for his closeup. He is going to be a fun little guy for some lucky family. Congratulations to his foster family the McKees!!! Goofy will be staying with them!

Goofy ended up being called Jack and was in his home with the McKee family until he passed away in February of 2018.

Trent may have a boyish name but she is actually a girl. She was named after her famous father Trent Lee and her dam Soft Melody. She was also a very good racer, racing at one of the top tracks in the country Wheeling Downs. Trent raced at the top levels there in AA and even competed in a Stakes Race for the best dogs racing at that track. She raced 102 races before being retired to be a mom. She has a total of 15 puppies in 3 litters listed burn 2009, 2010 and 2012 but may still have another more recent litter that will be registered to race soon. She has been living on the beautiful Blu Too Farm in Florida and has now been retired from her mom duties and is looking for a couch of her own. She will turn 11 on December 6th. Trent raced at 65lbs. She is a very young 10 and is in phenomenal shape for a 10 year old. She is extremely affectionate and is very laid back and loving. She has a pretty high prey drive so they don't believe she will be able to live with cats. Because Trent is an older girl, she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200.

Trent was adopted by the Martin Family in July of 2016. They had her for two happy years. They lost her to bone cancer in August of 2018.

Tabor is a 78lb brindle male that is full of personality. When he is excited and happy to see someone he does a huge grin - it is something that few greyhounds do. Be sure to look at his other pictures to see a picture of it. We all love the grinners! Although it looks a little scary to people that aren't familiar with greyhounds it is a submissive, happy, friendly gesture that a few special greyhounds do when they are very happy and it is a true smile. Tabor really has an exceptional personality and will be a fun dog for a lucky family. Tabor just celebrated his 4th birthday on July 15th. His sire is Brady Thomas and his dam is Solwest. He raced at Southland in Arkansas but most of his 132 races were at Derby Lane in FL. Tabor was a very good racer even competing in Stakes races. Tabor did not pass his cat test so needs a home without cats. He has done fine with the small dogs in his foster home though. He is a VERY friendly, loving, goofy guy that is very happy and friendly and loves people!! Such a cute brindle boy!!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Smith Family of Blue Ridge GA 10/28/16

Marcy is a white female with black spots that is a very special girl. She has an esophogeal disorder that caused her to throw up when she ate, so she was very tiny and the runt of the litter. She barely survived. Eventually her owner figured out why she was so thin and smaller than her littermates. Marcy had to be fed separately out of a raised feeder and needed softened food that was easy to swallow to keep from choking on it. Her racing owner hoped she would eventually grow out of the problem as she got older, but she didn't. Marcy never raced because of her issue. Her racing owner didn't think that anyone would want to adopt a girl that had this disorder, so just planned to keep her on the farm as a pet for her whole life. We know there is a special family out there for Marcy, in spite of her disorder. We have placed other dogs with the same problem. Although Marcy is small for a female greyhound, she is healthy. As you can see from the photos she is able to maintain a good weight using the raised feeder and making sure her food is very soft. She does need to be walked on a harness instead of using a collar to avoid pressure on her esophagus but that is her main limitation. Marcy is a sweet, friendly girl that loves everyone she meets. She turned 7 on April 20th. Her sire is Ardkill Jamie and her dam is JT's Petey Girl. We placed her littermate Hanks Luckycharm and DDM's Dynamite years ago. Marcy is very well behaved in a house and very quiet in her crate so may be a good choice for an apartment. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Be sure to look at Marcy's other photos to see pictures of her as a puppy. She is the tiny one in the group. Marcy has been fostered with kids and cats and is great with both. She is a snuggler that likes to be as close as possible. She loves to cuddle in bed with her foster family- kids and adults. Although she would like to be up on the couch with her family, she doesn't like her feet going between the cushions on the couch. So she figured out that sleeping on the ottoman was a better place for her. Marcy has been in an adoptive home but was unable to hold her pee all day while they worked. They think she would do better in a home where people weren't gone all day. We are getting her checked for a urinary tract infection, since she didn't have this problem in her previous foster homes. 

Marcy was adopted by a wonderful family and suddenly passed away in July of 2018 due to some internal bleeding that couldn't be fixed. Rest in Peace sweet girl!

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

Ritzy was adopted by the Pulliam Family in 2010 and lived 8 years with them until she passed away in July of 2018. RIP Ritzy.

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.

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):

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):

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Susan just arrived from the Sanford Orlando track in Florida. She is a white female with black spots that raced at 57lbs. Susan retired after 23 races due to a sprained hock. She won't turn 3 until October 2nd. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is Fuzzys Sylvia. Susan did pass her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She is described as being very friendly. More as we get to know her.

Susan was adopted in March of 2014 and called Moo by her new family. After an eventual diagnosis of a brain tumor, Moo lived the last month of her life comfortably and better-fed than her brothers and parents. We lost her in January of 2018. Although her parents only got to spend a few short years with her, they will forever remember--and miss--her uncanny ability to fit herself into any niche possible in order to snuggle with them.  The couch just isn't the same without you, Moo

Adoption Status: Adopted by Castlen Family of Atlanta GA Nov 13 2013

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.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hamilton Family of Augusta 10/22/11

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.

Will is a 73lb mostly white boy with one blue brindle spot on his face and golden eyes. He is has 83 races to his credit and was very good getting up to AA level at Tri-State before being moved to Sanford Orlando to race. Will's sire is Kelsos Fusileer and his dam is Bobby's Blanket. 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.
