Sherry is a 62lb black female that is coming in from the Bolton Farm in Florida. She was a very good racer that raced 104 races, mostly at the top A level. She also raced in a couple of Stakes races for the best racers at the track. Sherry retired back in July and was sent back to the farm to be a mom. Since the vote to end greyhound racing in Florida passed, her owners decided not to breed her and are sending her to us to place. We have already placed several of her littermates. They are all very sweet dogs. Her sire is Golden Squire and her dam is B My Merlot. Sherry is a very friendly girl. We have followed her career closely and our volunteers visited her at the track so we have lots of photos of her. Be sure to check out her other photos to see a few of them. Whoever adopts this girl will inherit a lot of pictures.

He started racing there in May, but only raced twice before he sprained his ankle again. He hasn't raced since May to give his ankle plenty of time to heal up. It is totally healed but they decided not to return him to racing. Orbit's sire is Defrim Bale and his dam is Arkuska Dolly. We placed his littermate Listen Linda in May. Orbit turned 2 on May 26th. Orbit passed his small dog test and likes the kids he met.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Marchese Family of Concord NC 11/9/19

Indy just arrived from the Bolton Farm in farm in Florida. She is a one-eyed girl due to an ocular tumor that caused her eye to have to be removed. She has never looked in a mirror so has no idea she only has one eye. She raced a total of 100 races at Sanford Orlando and at Derby Lane in Florida and was really good. Most of her races were at the top A level and at one point in her career she won 4 top level races in a row. Twice she won 3 in a row. She was quite the star. So she went back to the farm to be a mom after she retired in March of this year. Sometime after she got to the farm the tumor was discovered in her eye and it was removed by their vet. Her owners changed their minds about letting her have puppies because of the situation with racing ending in Florida. So now Indy is up for adoption. This sweet girl raced at 60lbs and will turn 5 on December 2nd. Her sire is Surf Lorian and her dam is I Got The Luck. She seems like a calm girl that walks good on leash. She paid no attention to the cats and small dogs she met at the vets office so should be fine to live with either. More as we get to know her.

Jack just came in from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. He never showed promise as a racer so was retired straight out of training and never had an official race. He is a very young, handsome black boy that won't even turn 2 until March 25th of next year. His sire is Boc's Tony Romo and his dam is DK's Leapinlizzy. Jack is a tiny boy that weighed in at just 63lbs at the vets. He is a friendly, happy, young guy with a very fun, playful personality. He passed his cat and small dog test with some curiosity and sniffing, but just seemed playful and was happily greeting them. Jack really liked the small kids he met and followed them around. He seems like a very sweet boy that is pretty well behaved for such a young guy.

Lippie is a young white male with black spots. He just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. Lippie won't even turn 2 until April 15th of next year. He had a minor muscle injury and got sore after training, so they decided to retire him young. He never actually raced. Lippie's sire is TK Quick Strike and his dam is TMC's Sweety Pie. Lippie is a very tall lanky boy that weighed 76lbs at the vets. He doesn't have an official racing weight since he never raced. Lippie showed no interest in the cat whatsoever during his cat test so we think he should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. He loved the kids he met so seems like he would be good with kids too. He was a little whiny the first night in the kennel.

Sweet Tart just arrived from the Ryan Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. She is a black female that raced at 65lbs. She raced 49 races mainly at D level and only ever won 5 of those races. She wasn't a very good racer so was retired. She turned 3 on June 27th. Sweet Tart's sire is KC and All and her dam is WW's Mint Candy. So far she seems like a happy outgoing girl that is curious about everything. She is bouncy and has a lot of personality and she seems to be on the more active side for a greyhound. She did well in her cat test at first, keeping her distance. After the cat hissed and slapped her, she barked at it and showed more interest. We put her in a foster home to see how she did with their cats and she seemed to become more interested in the cat with time. So we think she needs a home with no kitties. She liked the small kids she met and seems to like everyone. She did fine with a small white dog she met too.

Grapefruit just arrived from the Ryan Racing Kennel at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. She raced 48 races there mainly at the lowest levels. She only won 2 of those races so wasn't a very successful racer. She just turned 3 on October 12th. Her sire is Flying Fired Up and her dam is WW's Key Lime. Grapefruit seemed a bit overwhelmed at first with everything new and so far has been a bit timid. She seems very calm and well behaved. When she first met the cat she stared at it and was very focused, until it slapped her. Then she screamed, ran away and wouldn't even look at the cat again. We retested her with another cat a few days later and she wouldn't get close to the cat and didn't want to have anything to do with it at all. She was also fine with the small dogs she met. She was a little timid with the small kids she met.

Grenade is an extra large black male that raced at 91lbs. We also placed his littermate Gambino so were very excited to get him too. He came in from Derby Lane in Florida where he raced 93 races there. Grenade was a good racer and raced his last race on June 4th 2014. He finished the race but slowed some and came up lame afterward due to a minor hock sprain that healed completely.  Grenade was adopted by a family in August of 2014 that has had to return him to us due to financial issues. Grenade turned 8 on January 16th so qualifies for our senior adoption fee of $250. His sire is Tyrur Alex and his dam is Fire Storm Drive. Grenade passed his cat test and lived in a home with cats and small dogs so should be fine in a home with either. He is very friendly and loves everyone he meets. Grenade would be an excellent therapy dog or meet and greet dog since he loves kids and is very gentle and friendly with everyone he meets.

Fostered by (location):
Stringer, Greer SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the De Percin family of Charlotte NC 10/13/19

Poppy just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. She didn't actually race there but was moved there because they transport a lot of dogs to adoption groups across the country. Poppy is a cute, friendly, brindle girl that just turned 6 on March 15th. She raced 142 races, mostly at Palm Beach but also raced some at Bluffs Run. Poppy raced mostly at the mid level C and B races but did make it up to the top A level one time. Her last race was March 10th of 2018. She raced at 64lbs. Her sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Keen Katy. Poppy was a little interested in the cat when she first saw it, but calmed down after she sniffed it and realized what it was. We think she would be trainable with cats with a careful introduction and she is being fostered in a home with cats. Poppy was fine with the yorkie and italian greyhound that she met and is being fostered with a small dog. She is great on walks and has been settling in to foster care very well. She has been fostered in a townhouse and is pretty quiet in her kennel so may be good for apartment or townhouse living. Poppy is a very sweet girl that is pretty calm and friendly. She is missing about half of one ear due to some rough play with her littermates as a puppy. This just makes her cuter. Poppy was adopted in April of 2018 and has been in a home since then so is already home acclimated. Her human mom developed bad allergies to dog dander so they are having to rehome Poppy.

Slaton, Bluffton SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Czapiewski family of Greer SC 10/12/19

Tara is a brood mom that we met on one of our track trips. She came in from the Bolton Farm in Florida. She raced at the Bolton kennel at Sanford Orlando most of her career. She also raced briefly at Flagler and Naples Ft Myers. Tara was a big star the race track and won an amazing 9 top A level races IN A ROW. She was so fast that her finishes were described as Electrifying, Cyclonic, Explosive, and Super Sonic. Unless she was bumped, blocked or actually fell, she almost always won. A true superstar that was retired at the top A level in November of 2015. She went back to the farm to have pups then. We got to meet some of them on one of our group's track trips. Now she has been retired from mom duties and is available for adoption. She turned 6 on January 12th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Fuzzys Autumn. This is a very special girl and her owner and trainer want to stay in touch with her pet owners and get updates. Tara has been in a adoptive home since November, but their dog bit her and she was uncomfortable around him after that. They think she would do better in another home. Tara is more comfortable around women and can be a little timid of men at first. Tara passed her cat test and just sniffed the cat. She was fostered with small dogs and was fine with them too.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Pike, Myrtle Beach Area
Adoption Status: Moved to Senior Sanctuary for Adoption

Heritage now know as Rosie came in initially from the Birmingham Race Track where she raced 48 races. She was retired for bumping into and playing with other racers during races. That isn't allowed. Her sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is Flying Marietta. Rosie is a smaller red female that raced at 57lbs. She turned 7 on the 4th of July. She is greyhound grinner! When she is happy she will do the cutest big grin and show her teeth. Heritage did pass her cat and small dog tests at the racetrack but hasn't lived with them since then. Rosie has been in an adoptive home since she was 2 years old and they changed her name from Heritage to Rosie.  She is back with us because her family's other greyhound died and she was not happy as an only dog. She is doing great around other dogs and greyhounds since she has been in foster care though. She is good with children. She has no health issues, is up to date on everything medically, and is ready to go home again. Another dog is a requirement for any family that wants her.

Another group that only handles older returns asked if they could place Rosie with one of their adopters that was a good match for her.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Gardner, Myrtle Beach SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Strong family of Myrtle Beach 9/28/19

Lashes just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She never raced due to a muscle injury as a puppy and has just been living on the farm up until now. The injury is long healed and she can run and play without any problem. She just wouldn't be fast enough to race with an old injury although she doesn't seem to limp and looks like she runs pretty fast. Lashes is a mostly white female with brindle spots. She was never given a registered racing name. We called her Lashes because she has a tiny spot of fur that grows out her lower lash line that looks like she is wearing a false eyelash. The vet clipped the hair off when she was under for her spay and it may need to be trimmed every so often as it grows out. The rest of her litter were registered and are now racing. They all have the prefix SJ's. Her sire is Starz Jenko and her dam is Go Home. Lashes was born on July 26th of 2017 so she just turned 2. She is an outgoing girl that loves everyone she meets. She is just a little overwhelmed so far with everything new but even while having her first bath, she snuggled and kissed her foster mom. This is a really sweet girl that showed no interest in the small white dog she met other than a casual sniff and even let him eat her food. Lashes was good with the cats she met too and seemed to be like the small children she met.

1.5
Color/Gender:
White Male with Red Spots
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Franco (Columbia, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Williams family of Candler, NC 9/22/19

Edge just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race track. He only had 3 schooling races and finished toward the back of the pack in all of them. He was more interested in playing with the other dogs than chasing a lure. He even raced one of his schooling races with blinkers on in hopes it would encourage him to focus on the lure instead of playing with the other dogs. Playing with the other racers is not allowed during races and is the quickest way to be retired.  So Edge won't turn 2 until June 6th and is already retired and looking for a home. He is a silly guy that loves to run and play but he calms down nicely and sleeps in his crate and is very quiet in the crate even when completely alone. So he may do fine as an apartment dog or an only dog. He has done fine with the small dog in his foster home but does want to play with him. He would need rules and supervision with very small dogs just because of the size difference. Edge passed his cat test at the vet's without much interest. When he got into a foster home with kitties he got more interested in them moving around him so we decided that he would do better in a home without cats. He really liked the small kids he met and was fostered with a small child. Edge raced at 69lbs so is a smaller guy. His sire is Dox Out Of Peace and his dam is Superior Carly. Edge is a very good boy that responds really well to correction. He is calm for such a young dog but does have some energy because he is so young. He will run around the yard a few times and settle right down though. He is curious about everything. He has done very well on his potty training.   Updated Description!  Edge, now known as Bowie, is once again available for adoption.  His family loves him very much, but they have recently brought home an adorable newborn!  His behavior has since changed significantly demonstrating that he's just not going to be safe with the infant in the home.  This is unusable in greyhounds, but in his case they have tried very hard to turn the situation around.  We agree with their decision completely and will move Edge into foster placement as soon as we find a good location.  He is a great dog and this is the one and only reason they are returning him to us.  To reflect this, we have changed the status above to reflect "older children only" so that interested adopters will see this explanation.

Fuzzy is very happy and outgoing and loves attention. She loves other dogs of all sizes and gets playful and bouncy wanting to play with them. She passed her cat easily and wanted nothing to do with the cat after her first sniff led to a smack by the cat. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Fuzzy passed her test with small dogs as well, but because of her playfulness with other dogs really tiny dogs might get accidentally hurt. She would love a home with a medium or large dog though. Fuzzy crates nicely and loves belly and ear rubs. She is a real sweetheart!!!

Templeton is from a litter that was all named for Charlotte's Web characters. Templeton was the very intelligent rat in the story. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until September 28th. His sire is Seldom Told and his dam is B My Erica. We met this litter of puppies a year ago, when they were small, on a trip to the Bolton Farm in Florida. Templeton never had an official race because he was just was not fast enough. He was pulled out of the one race he was supposed to race at the last minute. Several pictures of him and his litter as puppies is up at the Sanford Orlando Race Track, on the rail though. We have a photo of it in his pictures. We do have a few pictures of the litter from our trip to his farm last year. He was an excellent traveler on the trip back from Florida. Templeton seems pretty calm and quiet for such a young guy. He is a mid sized guy at 73lbs. Fearless and confident, he strolled right across the shiny hardwood floors without any trouble and the vacuum didn't phase him either. Templeton settled into his crate nicely and was quiet there too. He chatters his teeth when excited - some greyhounds do this and we think it is really cute. Templeton is a happy boy that comes running to see you with his tail wagging. Very sweet guy!

Sweet Senior! Rumble is a mid sized 73lb, friendly, brindle guy. He raced 9 races years ago at Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida before they closed. DOB is 3/27/07 so he is a senior that qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. He was adopted way back in 2009 out of our Tri County Tech program and has been in a home since then. HIs family is having to move in with their father to take care of him and will not be able to bring their 3 senior greyhounds with them. They are asking for our help rehoming all three of their dogs. Rumble is very laid back guy. He is a leaner and wants to be with people. He is very bonded with their 11 year old female named Leena and we would love to place them together if we can. We understand that finding someone to take two 11 year olds at the same time is not something that may be possible, so we will consider placing them separately too. Their other 8 year old greyhound, Razor, would be fine being placed separately. All three dogs have the same sire Maryville Rumble. Rumble's dam is Regall Redrocket. The photos of Rumble were from when he first arrived. All three of the dogs have been living with cats. They have not lived with children but have been great with the kids they have met.

Sweet Senior! Leena raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers, Sarasota, and Palm Beach Race Tracks. She was moved around a lot looking for a track she could be competitive at. After 25 races and only 1 win her owners decided she wasn't cut out to be a racer and retired her.  We placed a couple other pups her mom had too. Leena is a pretty, red brindle female with white on her feet, chest and tail that can be sensitive and a bit timid at first. DOB 10/17/06, she is 11 and will turn 12 on October 17th. Since she is a senior Leena qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Leena has been in an adoptive home since December of 2010. Her family is having to move in with their father to care for him and they cannot bring their 3 greyhounds with them. They have made the decision to re-home their 3 senior greyhounds Leena, Rumble and Razor. Leena and Rumble are both 11 and very bonded. They sleep curled up together and often choose to sleep in the same crate together and do not like if if the are put into crates separately. It would be nice to find them a home together, but we understand that may not be possible, so will consider placing them individually. Razor is 8 years old and his owners believe he would do fine without the other two. All have the same sire Maryville Rumble and all are brindles. Leena's dam is Too Shy To Say. They have been living with cats. They have not lived with kids but have been fine with children that they have met. The photos we have now of them are from when they were younger.

El Jefe is a gorgeous shiny black male that raced at 68lbs and just turned 3 on March 20th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is SH Eywa. El Jefe seems like a calm loving guy. He passed his cat test and should be able to live with small dogs as well. He is friendly and sweet. Update!  El Jefe is returning to GC through no fault of his own.  He's been living peacefully with cats, and we've been told is also perfectly safe with small dogs and children.  He might do better in a home without another large dominant male because conflict caused by a dog (not a greyhound) in his previous situation has now created a problem.  This gorgeous fella just needs some time to relax and find his new perfect family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by Dr. Dee Wiltsie of Spartanburg, SC 8/31/19

This is a rare greyhound puppy! This is a very small brindle female that won't race due to being born with a deformed leg. We will have her checked to see if there is anything that can be done for the leg after she arrives. As it is, she has no idea that anything is wrong with her or her leg. It is all she has ever known, so she has adapted and runs and plays normally. She is a very happy, outgoing pup that has quite the personality according to her owner. She is only 11 weeks old so is small right now, about the size of a large cat,  but will be nearly adult sized in 6 months. Raising a greyhound pup is nothing like adopting a retired adult racer. They are hyper and can be very destructive. Imagine having a large breed puppy that can run 40 mph and needs to run and play most of the day. If their energy isn't drained in appropriate ways they will get into trouble. A large fenced yard is required for puppy adoptions. We recommend doggy daycare unless you have other dogs that will run and play with the puppy. Running and play is important to develop the strong bones and muscles they need to prevent injuries. Crating is important for potty training and when they aren't supervised to keep the puppy and your house safe. More as we get to know her.

She passed her cat test without much interest and also seemed fine with the small dog she met. She liked the kids she met too.

Miles just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track Kennel. He also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida. Miles has been promised to our group since he was a puppy. He was named for one of our volunteer's dogs that passed away. We first met Miles at around 8 months old at his farm in Texas and have followed him growing up through training and his career of 81 races. We have photos of him along the way and he even has his own Facebook page for his followers so he is pretty special. Miles will turn 4 on December 10th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Flirtatious. Miles is a smaller guy that raced at just 68lbs and is a stocky muscular guy, so is pretty short for that weight. He wasn't a great racer, mainly winning at the lower levels and only briefly getting up into the top A level one time. He was retired because he broke his outside back toe in his last race. Our vet amputated that toe and unless you count the toes you won't even notice one is missing. Miles definitely doesn't notice and has felt better since the problem toe came off. He is healed up and ready to go home now. Miles is a very outgoing guy that loves everyone he meets, kids and adults alike. He bounces happily to see you when you get home, but calms down nicely. He will stand next to you for petting for nearly as long as you will pet him. Although he is mostly quiet in his crate and crates really well, he sometimes makes some noise when he can see or hear people outside and wants to go see them. He potties nicely on walks and walks nicely on leash so wouldn't require a fenced yard. He gets along great with other dogs large and small and was living with an Italian Greyhound in his foster home and is exceptionally tolerant of the little guy. He is being fostered now with cats and is doing great with them too. Miles is a very sweet boy that loves people and is going to make a very loving pet. He is shiny and gorgeous.

Sean just retired from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is one of the Road To A Racer Alliance dogs that some of our members have been following closely. Sean liked racing but ran straight to the outside edge of the track and wouldn't run on the inside where most dogs run. He was a bit reckless and it was feared he would bump into another dog or injure himself trying to get to the edge of the track where he liked to run. So he had a very short career of only 23 races. He only won two of those. Sean came in toward the back of the pack most of the time, due to his choice to run farther around the edge of the circle. Sean is a stunning, tall black male that raced at 77lbs. He is getting ready to celebrate his 2nd birthday on August 8th. His sire is Lenson Sanchez, an Irish Sire. His dam is B My Merlot. We placed some of her other pups B Vinny Vino, B My Brandy and B Dom Perignon. We met Sean as a young guy and have followed his career so have lots of pictures of him racing and in his racing kennel. He is a happy, friendly, goofy guy that seems like he is pretty energetic and fun. Sean passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest. He obviously has been around cats because he sniffed the cat when his back was turned but as soon as the cat started to turn around Sean backed away and turned his head to avoid a pop on the nose. He wouldn't turn to look at the cat again. Sean really liked the kids in his first foster home and was fine with the small dog he met too.

This is a rare greyhound puppy born 1/28/19! She is a white female with red spots that had a muscle injury to a leg as a puppy that they thought might slow her down so decided not to race her. It is long healed and she gets around fine and plays and runs normally. We aren't even sure where the old injury was. She just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. Since she hasn't been named yet, her adoptive owner will get to do that, we have been calling her Puppy Girl. She is around 6 months old so is still very small for a greyhound at 40lbs. She will get taller and should put on some more muscle and weight as she gets closer to a year old.  Greyhound puppies aren't anything like the calm adult retired racers we are used to. Puppies are very playful and hyper and need a LOT of exercise or will become destructive and naughty. Nearly all puppies chew and dig and a large clumsy puppy that can run 40 mph isn't an easy puppy to raise for most people. A large, safe, fenced yard is required for greyhound puppy adoptions. Use of a crate will be necessary for potty training and to keep the puppy and your house safe when you aren't home or can't watch it. Unless you have other playful dogs to entertain the puppy, we recommend puppy daycare at least a couple of days a week to drain energy and for socialization with other dogs. This is especially true for people that work and have to leave the puppy home all day. Puppy Girl is very outgoing and happy. She will try to crawl in your lap and gives everyone kisses. A very sweet social girl.  She has a lot to learn and is picking up on things quickly. She had to learn like how to wear a collar and walk on leash and that trips outside are to potty and not just play and how to be quiet and well behaved in a kennel. She already wants to keep her kennel clean and will cry when she needs to go. She passed her cat test. She was excited to see the cat but was only play bowing and trying to get the cat to play with her. She was also good with the small dog she met and tried to get him to play with her. She tries to get every dog or human she meets to play with her. At this age she just wants to run and play. She loves kids too.

Louise came in from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced her entire career of 107 races at that track. Louise raced at 66lbs and is a pretty red girl. She just turned 4 on May 18th. Her sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and her dam is Flying Loki. Louise is very outgoing and waggy. She loves everyone she meets- adults, kids and other dogs. We noticed that she seems to like to snuggle up with other dogs and people and doesn't seem to be bothered by being bumped or stepped over by other dogs. She was interested in the cat on first meeting, but after a slap from the cat did not want to go back to see it again. We think she may be trainable with cats, especially with a cat that would stand its ground. Louise has been very vocal so wouldn't be a good choice for apartment or townhome living. She is was initially fostered with several young kids and seemed to really like them. She is a very happy, friendly girl with a lot of personality. Louise was in an adoptive home for over a month, but their male greyhound never seemed to like having another dog in the house and seemed withdrawn and depressed. So they are honoring his wishes to be an only dog and Louise is looking for another home. Her family reports that it isn't anything Louise has done, she is a really sweet girl that is very friendly and loving. She tries to interact with their male greyhound and is very good with him but he just isn't interested.

Willow is a very tiny girl that came in initially from the Daytona Beach Race Track on Oct 19th of 2016. She has only 29 races listed in 2015 at Sanford Orlando, Dubuque and Orange Park and never actually raced at Daytona Beach. She ended up being off from racing for a year having trouble with one of her toes. Eventually they had the problem toe amputated, so it wouldn't bother her anymore, and it is long since healed. Her racing owner decided to go ahead and retire her so we got her after the toe amputation. Willow is a tiny, fawn, female that weighs just 53lbs.  Dark sable tips on some of her fawn fur, gives her a very beautiful look. Her sire is Afleet Alex and her dam is WW Crystal Farm.  She is described as a bit higher energy, happy, waggy and very outgoing. She has had a salivary gland that leaks since before we got her, so she has a little fold under her skin under her head. It is nothing to worry about and doesn't bother her a bit according to our vets. Willow has been in a home since she was adopted in 2016. They have recently reported what sounds like some separation anxiety based accidents in her kennel when left alone.  We had her checked by our vet to rule out a physical cause and she is fine. She may just need to be in a home with another dog for company. So far she has done really well in her foster home with other dogs and hasn't had any accidents. Willow will celebrate her 6th birthday on August 28th. She did not pass her cat test so needs a home without cats. Willow is being fostered with small dogs and is doing great with them. She was good with her trainers children ages 5-11. She can be vocal in her kennel so won't be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Willow travels really well and settled into her foster home right away. She is so tiny that she curled up in a small rocking chair in her foster home and went to sleep. Yes we have pictures of that. She is the first greyhound that has ever done that in her foster mom's home. The most recent photos of her are the ones with more white on her face. The others were taken when she first arrived. Willow is a sweet friendly girl that is very happy and outgoing. You would never know she is 6 years old.

Rumor initially arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She was known as Cutie then and is a littermate to one of our volunteer's dogs. She was a good racer and raced 102 races getting up to the top A level. Rumor raced at 66lbs. She retired in December of 2016 and has been in an adoptive home since February of 2017. She will turn 6 on December 5th. Her sire is Dusty Outback and her dam is Nightingale. Rumor quickly checked out the house, found the dog bed, and laid down. She hasn't gotten into anything and followed the other dogs up and down the stairs with no problem. She is a calm, friendly girl. She gets along well with other dogs too. She didn't seem too interested in chasing cats when she met them, so she may do fine in a home with cats. Rumor whines to let you know when she needs to go outside and crates well. She seems like she is a very easy, well behaved girl. She will put her head in your lap to be petted and just stand there as long as you will pet her. Be sure to look at her other pictures to see some really cute ones of her as a baby! Cutie was adopted in Feb of 2017 at 3 years old and renamed Rumor. She lived with another greyhound named Rory who is 8 years old. They are very bonded and they are looking for a home together. Rumor and Rory are available because their owner just died in a tragic tubing accident. She has been freshly vetted including having a few bad teeth pulled and is ready to start her new life.

Rory raced 61 races at the Mobile AL track before retiring in May of 2014. He only won 5 of those races and competed at the lower racing levels mostly placing. He turned 8 on March 6th and raced at 73lbs. His sire is Kiowa Power Pak and his dam is CTW Diamond Diva. We don't know much about Rory since we didn't place him initially, but it looks like he was adopted by his family sometime in 2014. They adopted a female greyhound, they called Rumor, from us in 2017 to keep him company. Rumor and Rory are very bonded and are available for adoption together. They were very loved and are only available for adoption because their owner passed away in a tragic tubing accident. Rory is very sweet and friendly. He can be a little anxious about some things though and has some prescribed medication from the vet that helps him with that. We were told that he didn't crate or ride well in cars, but he did really well on the short trip to the vet in a crate, so he may have gotten better about that. Rory is a very sweet guy that seems very calm and lower energy like you would expect from an older gentleman. He did not pass his cat test so needs a home without kitties. Rory is a very cute guy with a light tan/fawn coat and ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. He is a very well behaved guy. His former owner used to work at a doggy daycare so both dogs are very used to being around other dogs. Rory and Rumor are staying together in foster care until they are adopted.

Cluster just arrived from the adoption kennel at the Jacksonville Race Course. She raced in the Lester Raines Kennel but retired in October of 2018. She was placed locally and was with her adopter in Jacksonville for about 4 months before being returned to the track adoption kennel. We just picked her up on a group track trip and brought her into a foster home, so she didn't have to stay in the kennel. Cluster is a gorgeous, shiny, black female with a small white blaze on her nose, white chest and white socks. Her sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is Kelsos Jenna. We placed her littermate Kelsos Rudy last November and a dog that has the same mom Kelsos BlueSmoke too. Cluster is a confident, happy girl. She can be a bit bossy at first so may need to be in a home with a male dog that doesn't mind having a bossy girlfriend (most don't) or a more submissive female. Cluster lived as an only dog with her previous family but she seems to be more comfortable with other dogs around and is doing great in her foster home with several other dogs. Cluster is VERY outgoing with people and doesn't seem to be stressed by the move from Florida into a foster home. She prances into a new home with her head and tail high and wagging. She goes straight up to everyone she meets happily for affection and usually tries to put her paws up on your chest to give hugs. We are discouraging the hugs, since she is a big dog, even though it is pretty sweet and cute. Her previous owner said she had growled a few times when being handled by strangers, but the original adoption kennel never saw any growls directed at humans and we haven't either. We weren't able to get much info on context of when the growls occurred from her, but in our experience, it usually happens when a dog is laying down or sleeping. She loved the kids she was introduced to, but because of the reported growls, we think a home without small kids would be best for her. She has been fine with the small dogs she has met but still needs testing with cats. This girl is personality plus and so stunning! If you want a happy fun girl that is full of personality, Cluster could be the one.

Fly just arrived from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a handsome, tall, black male that raced at 72lbs. He turned 2 on February 4th. His sire is the famous Defrim Bale and his dam is Kiowa Jill Vik. Fly only raced 12 races and didn't place in one of them. He started out his career at the Lester Raines Kennel at Palm Beach before being moved to Sanford Orlando. He is being fostered with small dogs and is great with them. He also passed his cat test pretty easily. He excitedly sniffed the cat then walked away. That is pretty much his response to anything new, get excited, sniff then check out the next thing. Fly also has liked all the kids he has met, very much. He is so big and goofy that he might accidentally knock down toddlers that weren't steady on their feet though just because he is so happy to see them. He was pretty loud in his kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment living. Fly went right up steps the first time he tried them. He is very sweet and social and has the most beautiful shiny black coat! Fly is an fun, happy, goofy guy. He stood up looking out the windows and panting most of the trip up from Florida. He panted a lot and seemed very excited about everything new in his foster home too, at first. He seems more excitable and curious about everything new, than scared, because he doesn't have his tail tucked. He needs a little work on leash because he pulls, but he does calm down pretty fast. This is a super sweet guy that loves people and will be a lot of fun for a family that wants a dog that will enjoy doing things with them.

Duke initially arrived from the Double J Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Florida. He raced 76 races there and at Southland in AR. He did get up to the top A level of racing at Orange Park. He is a smart guy that figured out how to get his muzzle off in the starting box before the race, so raced a few races without one. He is an extra large male that raced at 84lbs. He just turned 3 on December 12th. Duke's sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is Flying Bluefield. Duke is pretty perfect according to his foster mom but he does like to chew on things sometimes. A very friendly loving boy! No marking in her house and he gets along great with her dogs including one small terrier. He seems like he learns fast and trains easily. Duke did not pass his cat test so needs a home with no kitties. He did do fine with small dogs he met.

No

Fostered by (location):
Owens, Greenwood SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fulton family of Greendale, IN 7/19/19

Mogul is a red female that just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is young and won't turn two until July 31st. Mogul was not fast enough to race but she definitely has the drive to race and chase, so we know she gave it her best shot. She really wanted to get to the cat and chase it during her cat test. The cat slapping her had no effect on her whatsoever, so she definitely can not live with kitties. With her high prey drive we figured she would not be good with small dogs either, but she showed no interest in chasing the Italian Greyhound she met. She seems like she will be fine with some small dogs with an introduction so she knows what they are. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is KB's Brite Lite. Mogul is an adorable red girl with a dark curly tail that almost hangs in corkscrew at times and curls up over her back sometimes too. She has the cutest floppy ears. Mogul has a great personality and is very waggy and very happy and loves people. Mogul can be loud in her kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. She was pretty excitable around the small kids she met and wanted to get their toys and blankets, so we think she would do best in a home without small kids. Although she is very young and has a high prey drive, she does seem to calm down nicely. Her foster home, describes Mogul as "personality plus". Even though she is quite friendly she does have a very submissive side and will come up to you with her body and head low and tail wagging. She seems to be the same with other dogs and isn't pushy with anyone. Care should be taken with introductions to dogs that are fuzzy because she tends to mistake anything fuzzy for a lure. Even our laundry. She loves toys but gets overly excited about them and tends to take them apart. This is a cute girl that is young and is still learning what everything is.

Ng, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Aycock Family of Summerville SC 7/14/19

T Man just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Track in Florida. He is a very young guy that never had an official race. T Man was retired due to being very shy. He would run away from people trying to catch him at the end of races. He is a very shy boy and the move to the track, from the farm ,was just too much for him. T Man is very nervous around people he doesn't know but is warming up to his foster mom. He won't even turn 2 until November 4th, so is still a pup. His sire is Touch Tackle and his dam is DK's Tanstafel.  T Man is a genetically shy dog that isn't going to become a social butterfly after a few days or weeks, it is just his personality. His family will need to be understanding and committed to working with him long term until he gets comfortable with them. It may take weeks, months or even a year. He may never be comfortable enough to want to go places outside his home and his family needs to be OK with him just the way he is and not expect him to change much. T Man is similar to a human with an anxiety disorder.  He is timid and shy in social settings and he is very uncomfortable outside of his familiar surroundings. This is inherited shyness and not from anything anyone did to him. He is being fostered with cats and is also fine with other dogs large and small. He is a little shy with other dogs too at first and doesn't interact much. He has been very tolerant of dogs taking toys and bothering him though. He has warmed up to his foster housemates and is starting to play with them.  Since T Man never raced we don't have a racing weight for him. His foster mom leashed walked him to potty inside her fenced yard until he got comfortable enough to let her catch him. He is off leash now and comes running back into the house. After a little over a week he has started approaching his foster mom for affection and is OK with her walking toward him as long as she moves slowly. He is more skittish when visitors come over. Because he is so timid he is likely to be scared of the fast movements and loud noises that children and their toys and friends make. We would prefer to put him into a quiet home with older calm kids or no kids.

Honda just arrived from the RSB Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced at the Mardi Gras Track at Hallandale Beach Florida. He raced mostly at the top A and B levels in his 86 races. Honda is a 75lb, brindle boy with the most gorgeous dark brindle, almost coffee, coloring. His sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and his dam is Flying Saldana. Honda passed his cat and small dog tests at the track without any interest at all so should be able to live with either. Honda is a very calm, but friendly guy. He travels well and loves a good scratchin. He is a greyhound grinner and is a bit of a goofball according to his foster mom. More as we get to know him.

Toppy just came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced 149 races there and was a fantastic racer, racing at the top A level nearly his entire career. At one point he won 6 A level races in a row. He raced his entire career at that track. We placed his sister Atascocita Prema so are happy to be getting him now too. Toppy turned 4 on February 13th and he raced at 71lbs. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Atascocita Golda. Toppy has very cute stand up ears. He passed his cat test and is being fostered so would be a great choice for a home with cats. Toppy is a very friendly, happy, guy that just loves people. He goes up to everyone he meets, adults and children. He is curious about everything and seems to not be phased much by anything new. He seems like a pretty confident guy. Toppy isn't a fan of his crate and can be pretty vocal about it, so may not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. He is smart and it only took one day to house train him. Even though Toppy is 4, he still likes to taste things, so supervision will be necessary until he learns what is OK to chew on and what is not. He has not tried to get up on the furniture yet and prefers to lay on a dog bed. He gets along well with other dogs but does grumble some if they try to share a dog bed with him. Toppy is a very sweet boy that gives kisses and loves to be near people more than anything else. He is very goofy and fun. Even though he hasn't growled at humans over his bed and actually loves small kids, we would rather err on the side of caution and place him in a home with older kids that could understand that some dogs don't care for being bothered when sleeping or laying down.
