Fib has earned a new name. She is so devoted and stays so close to her foster mom that she started calling her Shadow. As you can see Shadow is a beautiful, dark brindle female. She has the softest fur that feels more like rabbit fur than dog fur. She LOVES LOVES LOVES people and will lean on you for attention - a greyhound hug. Shadow will stand in one spot as long as you will pet her. As you can imagine she is always a real hit at meet and greets with her sweet, friendly personality. FIb loves her squeaky toys and tosses them in the air for herself to catch. She loves playing outside in the yard and will play fetch and actually bring the ball back you. That is pretty rare in greyhounds and most will quickly let you know that they are not retrievers if asked to fetch more than once or twice. Shadow is a fun girl that loves attention and wants to do whatever you are doing. Although she sleeps in her kennel at her foster home she would prefer to sleep in the room with her family when she finds them. Shadow is a confident girl that gets along well with other dogs but is likely to want to be the dominant female in her home. She tested cat and small dog tolerant at the track. She initially showed some interest in the cat in her foster home but has gotten used to living with cats now. She initially mistook small dogs for bunnies too at a distance but was fine once she was properly introduced and got a good sniff. She should be fine now that she has spent time with both. She has done great on potty training and will let you know when she needs to go out. This fun loving girl is in search of a family with lots of love to give and she promises to give even more back.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the McManis family of Easley SC, 9.11.11

Princess is a beautiful almost all white girl that has just a bit of brindle over one eye, her tail and a bit on her ears. Her birthday is October 1st 2004. Sadly she is a Economy Return, available again through no fault of her own. This is her 4th return and none have been her fault. The first was because another dog in the home didn't like her, the second was because she became terrified to go outside after being attacked by a loose dog, and the last two have been economic returns. The families have said she is an angel with no behavior problems at all. This is a sweet girl that has already been house trained and learned good manners. She is a sweet, friendly girl that has just a tiny bit of a timid side from time to time. She has lived with cats, small dogs and a number of children from babies to toddlers to teens. She adores kids and is very good with them. She likes other dogs male or female and gets along well with them. We are hoping her 5th adoptive home will be her Forever Home. Princess has had more than her share of bad luck already.

Update:Princess Consort (Sasha) was adopted into her 5th (and forever) home with us (Duncan and Carmen McManis) when she was 7 years old.  She loved to race (and often beat) younger fosters around the yard. Sadly 4 years later they lost her to bone cancer. We will always love and miss this super special girl.

Jake is another economic return. He and 4 other greyhounds were rehomed because their family moved and could not take them along. Jake was a very successful racer and retired about 2 years ago. He is already home acclimated because of his time in a home as a pet and has wonderful house manners. He was not returned because of any behavior problems and is quite the gentleman. Jake is an unusual very light fawn color and is a large, gentle guy. Jake was fond of a 9 month old grandchild in his previous home and is in a foster home with children. He seems to enjoy having kids around. He also has lived with cats and small dogs before so would do great in a home with either. Jake is a friendly, happy, loving guy that gets along well with other dogs. He is pretty laid back lower energy guy so would be great for a busy home that didn't have a lot of time or energy to exercise a dog. Jake travels well and enjoys going for a ride. He is already a great pet with lots of love to give and will be an easy addition to some lucky home.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the McMahan Family of Greenville 8/6/12

Kiki raced at 66lbs and her birthday is Feb 1st 2002. She is one of the most affectionate dogs to ever visit her foster home! She's one of those greyhounds that truly wants to be part of your life. She is the type of dog that people dream of, one that will follow you around from room to room and lay down calmly next to you to keep you company. She's completely clean in the house, crates immediately at the request to 'go to bed' and loves to get up and relax on the couch with you. A true couch potato. Kiki has the sweetest little long face and expressive ears that fold forward whenever she's excited about something. Her foster family has noticed her ability to pick up new commands very quickly and she is highly motivated to make her humans happy. Kiki has a bit too much prey drive to be considered safe with cats.

Kiki has been in a home before and has excellent house manners. Unfortunately she was dumped at an animal shelter. We are lucky they called us so we could find her another home. She has been returned to the care of the excellent foster home who had her before she was adopted. Because she is a senior girl Kiki qualifies for a reduced adoption fee!! Kiki has a clean bill of health without any known problems from being a slightly-older girl.This is a great girl that comes already home acclimated. All she needs is a couch and someone to love her back.

Rhythm is a stunning, medium sized male. He is friendly with people and seems like he is going to be a great guy. He passed his cat and small dog test so should be able to live with either. Although he was initially a marker he has learned quickly that he can't mark in the house and is doing great on his potty training. Rhythm is playful outside and tries to get his foster sister to join him running around the backyard. He seems to get along well with other dogs. He is a very happy, sweet loving guy that loves attention. Another great guy that should be a fantastic pet. His pedigree

Update after adoption: Paws lives with another greyhounds and regularily attends adoption events to promote greyhound adoption. His favorite things are running in the yard with his greyhound sister Blondie and snuggling with his human dad, Ken.

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Horton)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Horton Bottiglier family of Greenville SC, 11.17.10

Raccoon is a friendly girl with very unusual markings. She got her nickname at the track because of the black around her eyes. We haven't seen a fawn dog with this much white before either. She has a white blaze, a wide white collar around her neck, white stockings that go nearly all the way up her legs and half of her tail is even white. Raccoon figured out how to get off her kennel muzzle at the track so she ended up being the only greyhound that didn't have to wear one. She got along well with all the other girls in the turn out pen so she never really needed one. Raccoon loves to play with toys and carry them around. Her favorite at the track was an old cleaned out bleach bottle that she would proudly carry around. She figured out steps right away and has no problem with them. Raccoon has shown that she has a pretty high prey drive but has been OK with the small dog in her foster home after a proper introduction and supervision. She seems to be OK with cats too after an initial sniff but needs to be supervised when cats or small dogs move quickly around her at first until she realizes what they are. She responds very well to correction with cats and small dogs. Raccoon can be loud in the crate sometimes so may not be a good dog for apartment living. She has learned to potty on leash so may be able to live in a home without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her.

Raccoon was loved by the Horton Bottiglier Family of Greenville SC for over 5 years. Sadly Raccoon crossed the bridge 1/18/16 due to bone cancer.

Tony is an outgoing guy that loves everyone and gives kisses. He follows his foster mom from room to room and likes to stay close to his people. He is travels well and stood patiently for a bath. He loves attention and will seek it out. Tony crates quietly and passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live in homes with either. He likes water and as you can see in his photos loves to lay in the baby pool. Tony has been exceptionally well behaved in his foster home and seems to like the small dogs there and never tries to chase them. He gets along well with the big dogs too. He likes the children he has met so should be fine in a home with them. Tony is great on leash and doesn't pull. He might be a great agility prospect because he can clear a 3 foot fence with ease. He will need fencing that is higher to contain him. This is a great boy! Link to his pedigree

Pooh had been previously adopted out by the adoption kennel at the Birmingham race track but that home had not worked out for her. She was back at the kennel when our group arrived to pick out dogs and Kim and Robert fell in love with her. Pooh lives to chase squirrels and you can tell she does a lot of squirrel chasing because she is so stocky and muscular. She look more like a body builder than a thin greyhound. She is a sweet friendly girl that never met a stranger. She can be a bit bossy with her brothers and is a very confident girl.

Bennett is a dignified older gentleman in the rare position that we know very little about him. At the grand age he has reached, he very much deserves to have that special place to call home where he is safe and loved. Bennett is ready to follow you home! Update from his foster home! He is a perfect gentleman, never having an accident inside and living peacefully with all the other residents in his foster home including small dogs. He also is very tolerant of all cats he has met and seems to be drawn to children. He adores having his throat rubbed and will patiently stand with his head raised as long as the attention continues. If his humans are seated he gently places his head in their lap. Even though he is farther along in age than most of our dogs, Bennett is very spry and active and still loves to run and play. Bennett especially enjoys walks in the neighborhood and wants a family that will do that with him. They don't have to be long, just a short walk makes him very very happy. He never meets a stranger and everyone lucky enough to give him a rub falls in love! Let's help this precious older fella find the perfect home to spend the rest of his retirement in peace and safety. He has been chosen by our members for special gifts and support, reducing his adoption fee to $200.

Update after adoption: Sawyers foster family decided to keep him. They had already decided to adopt him when he was diagnosed with cancer. They did the adoption paperwork that day to make it official that he had a home for the rest of his life. Sadly he lived just a few more months and crossed the rainbow bridge.

He is a big, dark brindle male, full of silliness and playfulness. Chris loves attention, gives kisses and grins for his humans! Gets along well with small dogs and cats. This guy is tall dark and handsome with personality plus! He and Motif (another of our available hounds) look like twins. Anyone for a matched pair? Chris raced 62 races at Palm Beach. His sire is the famous Oswald Cobblepot and his dam is Kristin Schwenke and is named for a farm owner we have taken dogs from.

From there she went to the Birmingham race track and retired from there in Jan 2009. A family adopted her directly from her trainer along with a male greyhound. Sara ended up having an accidental litter of pups in Jan of 2010 which is how we ended up with her. Her family couldn't financially care for her and the pups and she was relinquished to an adoption group and eventually moved with some of her pups to our adoption group. Sara was an excellent mom to her pups for 5 months before being adopted by the Roepke family of Columbia, SC. Sara was small, friendly, brindle, beauty with a waggy tail and a fun, playful personality. Sara was good with cats, kids and small dogs and everyone she met. Her favorite thing was to play at a dog park and was the rare greyhound that could run every day and keep up with other breeds energy wise. Of course she was much faster than the rest of them. Sara loved to go for rides and walks and was her owners "best friend". We had get togethers with Sara and her pups and she always remembered them. Sara passed away suddenly 12/26/12 of unknown causes at just 7 years old.

Gracie is home acclimated and has been in a home for several years since she retired from the track. Her birthday is Feb 20th and she is 6 years old. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is Moon Mt Treasure. Gracie walks and potties beautifully on a leash so would be fine with a family without a fenced back yard. She is safe with everything and has lived with cats and small dogs before. She crates wonderfully with no noise, and is very content on a dog bed. She has the cutest windmill tail, it doesn't just wag back and forth, she gets it cranked up and it might as well be a fan! Gracie is very calm and quiet. Her story has a new chapter, because she's coming back to our group in the hopes of finding her another location that suits her quiet tendancies better. Her current family loves her, but they feel she never became comfortable with their active lifestyle. Gracie, as they call her now, is a wonderful girl who needs a more low-key environment. She is good with kids but has been choosing to stay in the bedroom rather than being out with the family so her family thinks a home without small rowdy kids might make her more comfortable.  If you're looking for a home-acclimated, well behaved girl, she's waiting for you!

He has those sweet big eyes with lots of eyeliner that will melt the heart of a greyhound-lover! He has showed no interest in chasing cats or small dogs so could live with either.  Scooby seeks out the company of children when he has been around them. When visiting our vet for his neuter, he made lots of friends there playing with the staff. This guy has personality plus and was one of the kennel favorites at the track because of his silly happy personality - it was also what got him his nickname of Scooby Doo. Nothing seems to bother him and he will want to do whatever you are doing. This is a guy that just wants to be with you although he will happily crate if you are gone.

Update after adoption: Scooby Doo has been renamed Chase and is now a Therapy Dog!

Chase crossed the bridge in 2014 due to what the vets believed was a brain tumor.

He loved for anyone to scratch his big head and back, and even seemed tp smile. His favorite part of the day is taking an evening walk. When he heared the leash rattle, he came running and started jumping up and down. He was the lead dog in the pack, but he was a gentle leader who rarely asserted himself. CJ also enjoyed playing with his stuffy toys, but only when one of his people played with him. He was a well-balanced and well behaved boy who was a great family member. He was great with kids and small dogs but chasing cats was something he enjoyed just a little too much.

Richard is cat, small dog and child friendly and should do well in most any situation. He is such a sweet guy that prefers to follow his humans around and be near them.

Wally is a great older guy that has been in a home so has good house manners already. He was returned to our group through no fault of his own. His family just didn't have room for him. Wally has no idea he is a senior and still runs and plays with the younger dogs and has a great time. This is a precious guy that just wants a couch to call his own and someone to scratch his head.

Wally is a very special case, a senior boy who has some special health considerations.  A very kind supporter has donated his adoption fee to help him go home! His pedigree

Update after adoption: Wally's is doing well in his home and was crowned King of the Beach 2010 at Beach Bound Hounds in Myrtle Beach.

Tequila is a sweet, happy, playful, older girl that was discovered wandering loose, starving and in horrible condition. She had been in an adoptive home for years but wasn't cared for and looked like she had even been attacked by another dog. This was one of the worst neglect cases we have seen. Tequila still looks pretty rough now and doesn't have much hair due to a skin condition that will require some baths a couple of times a week for awhile. It looks like we have made some progress already and soon Tequila will be back to her former beauty with some TLC. Tequila has great house manners and has fit into her foster home like she has always been there and enjoys playing with their greyhound. She is very friendly and is good with other dogs, cats and kids. Tequila is a good girl and is looking for a family that will love and appreciate her. She should be a wonderful easy addition to just about any family. She only has 2 races listed at the now closed Plainfield track. Her sire is Flying Train and her dam is Marvelous Missy. She was born on June 10th 2000.Congratulations to her foster family that decided they couldn't let this one go!

Update after adoption: Tequila has become a meet and greet dog for Greyhound Crossroads! She attends events encouraging people to adopt greyhounds. She lives in the country and loves taking walks with her dad. She has completely gotten over her skin condition and has a healthy full coat now with only a few scars to remind her of her past. Tequila crossed the bridge on 10/11/13.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Sobkowiak, 5.15.11

Ethan is a small male at only 66lbs. Ethan has been in a home and has great house manners. He was just returned to us to be rehomed because of a weight restriction change at the apartment he had been living in. Since he was over 50lbs he had to go. He was not rehomed due to any behavior problem and doesn't seem to have any. He is a quiet guy that has lived in an apartment so would be perfect for an apartment or townhouse. Ethan likes his crate and often chooses to sleep there with the door open. A few greyhounds are smilers and this is definitely one of them. Ethan will grin up at you if he is happy and will grin even more if he thinks he might be in trouble. His foster family says he is a sweet, friendly, loving boy that couldn't be any nicer. This is a well behaved, easy guy that would be perfect for a first or 4th greyhound. He gets along well with other dogs and cats and likes children. This is one super guy! And SO cute!!

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male

No

Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Columbia, SC (McGraw)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Sanders

Carl is a total love bug! He may have been quiet and calm initially, but now that he's settled in he is most definately a bouncy energetic 2 year old. He'll settle down (on a pillow) when told to, but would rather be playing with a chew toy. He's never met a stranger and isn't shy about pushing to the front of the line when loving is being given out. He lays his head on the other pups backs or on your lap or arm when he wants attention. He has the most bewitching golden eyes, so don't look into them unless you're ready to fall in love! Nothing intimidates this confident boy. He's great on slippery floors, and stairs. He did well meeting small dogs but is not cat safe. On walks, he doesn't tug on the leash but does tend to wander in any and every direction to make sure he doesn't miss a thing. Reminders to stay focused are helpful. He isn't food aggressive at all but sure does love his chow, hopping up and down when his bowl is carried to the crate and he chomps his teeth. It's not a fast chatter but a very slow chomp, and really adorable. He will go in his crate when told to kennel up but he is the last one in. He is a beautiful solid brindle, not a white toe or even on his chest. Very affectionate and energetic!

Carl was adopted and had a good but too short life. He passed away on 5/4/13. Carl was hit by a car after a tree fell on his fence and allowed him to escape his backyard. RIP Carl.

Buck
Age:
7
Color/Gender:
Red Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Crouch (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Bryce Family of Aiken 8/17/13

Buck is a calm but friendly guy. He is a very well behaved, tall, handsome guy with lots of dark eyeliner around his expressive eyes. He raced at a thin 80lbs and weighs closer to 85 now. Buck was returned by his adoptive family because they had a baby. Buck hasn't had much experience with kids and his one quirk is that he is very uncomfortable with kids. He has always backed away from them and tries to avoid them so they felt he would be very uncomfortable and unhappy in a home with a baby. So Buck is looking for a new home with no small kids. Buck turned 7 on March 20th. We originally got him from Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida when he was younger and he has been in a home since then. He only has 12 races listed. His sire is Stan's Boy Flyer and dam is PA's Trudi. Buck is a calmly friendly guy with adults but he really does tend to shy away from kids at meet and greets. Anyone younger than a teenager makes him nervous. He isn't a nervous dog at all otherwise - just the opposite. At meet and greets he loves people that come by and will even will put a paw up and paw at them for attention. Buck likes to run and play and will play fetch with a ball. He also loves playing with stuffed toys. He is good on leash and loves to go for walks or hikes. He likes to go for rides too. Buck crates quietly and potties on a leash so he would probably be very good in an apartment or townhouse or in a home without a fenced yard. He passed his cat and small dog tests and has lived in a home with cats before so would be great for a home with small animals. Buck has great house manners and never has accidents in his foster home. He has lived as an only dog for years so might be a good dog for someone that only wants one dog.

Fostered by (location):
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Adams Family of Candler, NC
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.

Murphy is a very handsome black brindle- we don't get many this color. He has 27 races listed at Lincoln Park where he raced at 72lbs. His sire is DK's Prime Time and his dam is Stat E Tara. He will celebrate his 9th birthday on June 23rd. Murphy has had some very bad luck and has been in a couple of different homes and he was returned to us this time in pretty poor condition. He is expected to make a full recovery but needs to put on quite a few lbs. One of his former families did a lot of obedience training with him so Murphy comes with a lot of training. This is a smart boy with excellent house manners too. Murphy was a certified Therapy Dog and participated in Therapy Dog visits with one of his previous owners so is a very special guy that is wonderful with children and adults and very well behaved in public settings. He walks nicely on leash, doesn't jump and calmly and politely goes up to people for love. Murphy was great with the cats at he met at the vet clinic and gave them kisses so we think he will be fine living with them. He was fine with small dogs he did Therapy Dog visits with. Although Murphy has always been great with small dogs and all dogs he has met, because of an incident that Murphy MAY have been involved in years ago we would rather not place him in a home with small dogs. He is fine with other dogs and gets along well with everyone though in our experience.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Felts, 11.14.09

Luke is a very large, sweet, silly boy. He is considered special needs because he is blind in his right eye due to an injury he received as a puppy, but he doesn't seem to let that slow him down. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home and is very loving and playful. He walks nicely on a leash and is completely potty trained. Luke is intelligent and will do best with a family that enjoys obedience training and will be confident pack leaders. He will make an awesome addition to the right home! Luke tested cat tolerant and is living with small dogs in his foster home. Because Luke was never registered to race we don't know who his parents are or much about his background other than his owners obtained him as a young pup.
