In her younger days Gem was quiet the racer winning a Stakes Championship. She has been in a loving home but they were forced to rehome her. due to finances. Gem is a playful 8 year old who gets along well with cats and small dogs. She loves to chase squirrels in the yard and competes for 1st place while walking with her fellow greys. She does well with children but, would probably be best with children over 8 years. Gem seems to have a special affection for the man of the house and would be a wonderful pet for a retired owner or a stay at home parent. Gem cannot go an entire workday without going outside but, could probably easily learn to use a doggie door. She is well behaved, walks well on a leash, loves squeaky toys and is quite a love. Gem has been selected as the recipient of GC member support donations, lowering her adoption fee to $200.

Ramses loves to go for walks and bounces with joy when he sees his leash. This is a great, friendly boy that couldn't be any sweeter.

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.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Clark family, 1.23.10

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.

Fostered by (location):

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!!

Pet/Kennel Name:
Carl
Age:

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
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:

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.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Georgian Family of Aiken, SC 4/14/13
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.

Fostered by (location):

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.
