2018 Adoptions

A list of all retired racing greyhounds adopted by Greyhound Crossroads in 2018

Atascocita Cord
Racing Name:
Atascocita Cord
Pet/Kennel Name:
Cord
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Upstate SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to the Foster family 1/20/18

Cord came to us from a Florida farm where he has been living since he retired from racing in March of 2016. He had been waiting over a year and a half for a group to take him. He only raced 36 races in Palm Beach and only actually won 2 of those. Cord turned 4 on June 20th. His sire is the famous Craigie Whistler and his dam is Atascocita Miama, He was owned by Atascocita Racing which is why that is the first part of his name. Cord has a very old break to his back right leg that is long healed and shouldn't cause him any problems as a pet. He can play normally but does have a slight limp so probably would prefer shorter walks rather than long hikes. Cord travels well and just got in the van and laid down. He potties on leash nicely so may do fine without a fenced yard, if someone was willing to leash walk him. He is very quiet so may be good for a townhouse or apartment. He seems like a very calm, well behaved guy that is calmly friendly. Cord liked the children he met and was fine even with a cat running past him. Cord seems to be exceptionally low prey drive and had no interest even in chinchillas he lived with. He did great at a doggy daycare with even the smaller dogs. Cord is very laid back and is perfectly happy laying on his bed watching things going on around him and doesn't need to be the center of attention. After Cord gets comfortable with his family he is playful.

Dutch Kolby
Racing Name:

Pet/Kennel Name:
Kolby
Age:

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Johnson Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Sheffield Family of Ellijay, GA 1/20/18

Kolby is a large 83lb male that had a very long racing career of 237 races. It is pretty rare for a greyhound to still be competitive after their 5th birthday and Kolby turned 5 on November 4th. He had a career that was much longer than most. He raced at Orange Park most of the time and raced at A and B level most of his career there so was good. When he started to slow down a bit he was moved to Sanford Orlando Race Track in 2016 in hopes he would still be competitive there. He was retired after a little over a year there. His sire is Dutch Drummer and his dam is Dutch Sweet Kate. Kolby is a sweet fairly calm guy. He passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. He was more interested in getting attention from the people than the cat or the small fluffy dog.

DK's Chainsmoker
Racing Name:
DK's Chainsmoker
Pet/Kennel Name:
Chains
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Henrick, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Turner Family of Lyman 1/20/18

Chains just arrived from the Melbourne Race Track. He also raced briefly at Flagler and Mardi Gras tracks, but wasn't able to win one race at either. He was fast enough to place in the few races he did race though. After being moved to Melbourne they entered him in two schooling races and he refused to even run. Since Chains is the rare greyhound that would rather not chase the lure. When he met cats and small dogs he didn't want to chase them either, so would be fine to live with either. Chains is a 75lb brindle male that turned 2 on September 10th. His Sire is SH Avatar and his dam is DK"s Send All. Chains was very concerned about slick floors and didn't want to walk on them at all so will need some coaching there. He is a friendly happy guy that likes people.

Style has done fine with a 30lb dog in her foster home and will be tested with cats and smaller dogs soon. More as we get to know her.

Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Electra Chick. Spinner is sweet and likes people. She seemed to really like the children she met. She is silent in her crate so may be a good apartment dog. She seems like she is a bit overwhelmed by all the changes in her life right now and is a little nervous. She passed her cat test and small dog test too.

Yes

Fostered by (location):
Henrick, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Blann Family of Forsyth GA 1/13/17

Shorty just arrived from the Brindle Kennel. Her last race was at the Flagler track on 10/27/17 where she broke her leg. She was casted by a vet at the track and wore it there at the track for 6 weeks. She has been released from vet care and is doing well on the leg. She is a red female that just turned 3 on Dec 17th. She raced at 62lbs. Her sire is SH Avatar and her dam is KL's Shannon. Our vet checked Shorty and her leg is stable so she feels like it has healed well. Shorty still holds it up sometimes when standing, but can get around on it just fine. She may continue to have a slight limp on it or favor it just a little, but she should be able to run around and have fun like any other dog. Shorty is very sweet and likes the kids in her foster home. Shorty passed her cat and small dog tests easily and seemed a little afraid of the cat. She is very affectionate and sweet too.

CC's Kahlua

CC's Kahlua
Pet/Kennel Name:
Kahlua
Age:

Color/Gender:
White with Red Spots Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Hamilton Family of Augusta GA 1/7/18

Kahlua came in from the Brindle Kennel at Palm Beach. She raced 44 races and also raced at Southland in Arkansas and Mardi Gras in Florida. She briefly got up to A level. She raced at 66lbs and turned 3 on October 17th. Kahlua is a very very tall leggy girl that was taller than the 77lb male that she arrived with. She is white with just a couple of dark red spots that nearly look brown. She is just stunning! Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is KL's Tasha. She walked through the lobby of the vet's office that was full of small dogs and didn't pay much attention to them and is being fostered with a small white dog so she should be OK to live with small dogs. She also passed her cat test and even when the cat ran through the house didn't show any interest in chasing. She is a bit unsure of herself at first and will approach with her head lowered submissively but she is friendly and wants petting. She will lean up against you and give the greyhound hug. We also think we saw a small grin once when she got excited. She seems like a pretty calm girl that traveled well.

Atascocita Topsy
Racing Name:
Atascocita Topsy
Pet/Kennel Name:
Topsy
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Red Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Henrick Columbia SC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Tillinghast Family of Spartanburg SC 1/4/18

Topsy just arrived from a farm in Tampa. He has no races listed so just didn't show much promise as a racer when he was in schooling. He turned 2 on April 21st. His sire is Atascocita Bowl and his dam is Atascocita Hush. Topsy is a medium sized guy that is very sweet. He loves people and loves to snuggle. Topsy has a wonderful, friendly, happy personality. He is a gorgeous deep red with cute ears that stand straight up when he is checking something out. Topsy was too interested in the first cat he was tested with, so we had him listed as needing a home with no cats. We gave him some time and retested him with another cat and was fine with that cat. Sometimes they calm down a bit after retirement. We think he is likely to be trainable now with supervision and can introduce him to your individual cat to see how he reacts. Topsy lived with some 35lb medium sized dogs in his first foster home and was fine with them. He met a toy poodle and a chihuahua and was friendly and appropriate with them too.  He is wonderful with children and is being fostered in a home with several kids and loves to play with them and snuggle with them. Topsy is calm and very well behaved in the house. He does get excited to check everything out and to greet everyone when on walks so we are working on his leash skills. He travels great and loves to go for rides. This cute guy will make a wonderful happy companion.

Steady just came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Mardi Gras Race track. He only had 5 schooling races and finished toward the back in all of them.  Steady's sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is Mika. He is a pretty young guy that won't turn 3 until April 2nd. He raced at 73lbs. Steady is a friendly guy that seems to like everyone. He seems very happy and curious about things. He is a pretty tall guy for just weighing 73lbs and he is gorgeous and shiny. Steady passed his small dog test and his cat test easily so should be fine to live with either. So far he has been very quiet in his kennel, so he may be a good dog for apartment living. More as we get to know him.

Indy
Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Blue Family of Florence SC 1/1/17

Indy came in from the Alves Kennel at the Daytona track. She also raced a few races at Orange Park in Florida. Her racing owner is a friend of our group's and she asked if we would find her an adoptive home. Indy is a tiny girl that raced at just 53lbs. She only raced 10 races and always finished towards the back of the pack. Her first 3 races she was so far back she wasn't even in the picture, so she was retired right away. Indy just turned 2 on November 6th so is very young. Her sire is Hi Noon Renegade and her dam is SL Wolfgang. Indy passed her small dog test easily and is being fostered with a small white dog. She also passed her cat test. She seemed like she had met a cat before and cautiously avoided going near it at all. Indy is pretty outgoing, happy and curious about everything. We are working on her leash skills because she pulls some. She is normally very quiet and well behaved in her kennel, once she got used to it, but occasionally she can complain a bit so we think she probably would be too loud for apartment living. Indy is loving and gives gentle kisses. She is a natural sitter and you will see her sitting on dog beds frequently which is unusual because many greyhounds are uncomfortable in that position. Indy is a very sweet little girl.
