WW Minnie Driver
Racing Name:
WW Minnie Driver
Pet/Kennel Name:
Missy
Age:
4.5
Color/Gender:
White with Red Spots Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Lane (Augusta, GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fox family of Aiken SC, 5.23.20

Missy came in initially from the Birmingham Race Course. She only raced one of her 49 races there though. She traveled around to quite a few tracks. Missy started out at Dubuque in IA, then went to Wheeling Downs in WV, Gulf in TX and Orange Park in FL then finally Birmingham AL. She did get up to A level once at Orange Park but just wasn't a really good racer. She moved around a lot looking for a place where she would be competitive. Missy turned 4 on November 28th and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is WW's Whiteclover. She was called Minnie at the track but has since been renamed Missy by her first family. She is a pretty timid girl that will need time to warm up. Missy seems to be little more shy with men than kids and females. She was initially fostered with a calm 8 year old child. Most timid dogs are terrified around very loud fast moving small kids, so she probably needs a home with quiet older kids or no kids. Missy travels well. She is excellent on leash and goes potty on leash walks, so may do OK without a fenced yard. Missy went to her first home in October of 2018. That family was elderly and both fell and had to go to the hospital and were not able to care for a dog anymore so asked us to find her a new home. She was placed in 2019 and was just returned from that home because she was too shy. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Missy did great in an earlier foster home with several small dogs. Missy doesn't interact at all on the first meeting, so any potential families need to understand that. She was very well behaved in her foster home. She is just a shy girl that is not a social butterfly and needs an owner that will be understanding of that and give her the time she needs to warm up and not expect her to change dramatically.

Fostered by (location):
Ianuzzi, Bluffton SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kozel family of Simpsonville SC, 5.23.20

Jean just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track where she raced all 68 of her races. She raced mainly at the lower C and D levels and only managed to win 6 of her races. She did place a lot though. Jean raced at 60lbs and turns 3 on July 6th. Her sire is the famous Seldom Told and her dam is WP Black Velvet. Her last race was Feb 24th and she was with the track adoption group at the track since then and was vetted there on 5/6/20. Jean passed her cat test there and ignored the cat at first. Once she got used to the cat, she wanted to play, but she backs right off when the cat slaps her and says no. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Testing
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Russell, Charlotte NC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Martinka Family of Fairview NC, 5.22.20

Amy came from the Sanford Orlando Race Track closing. She has been fostered by her racing owner in NC since, so has already been home acclimated for awhile. Amy raced 38 races and also raced briefly at the Palm Beach Race track. She wasn't very good only winning a few times at the lowest D level. Amy raced at 66lbs. She won't turn 3 until Nov 25th. Her sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and her dam is Flying Unrest. Amy LOVES people and attention. She also loves other dogs and wants to cuddle with other dogs on their beds. She has no sense of personal space and wants to be as close as possible to snuggle. She likes to be with her humans and is quiet during the day just hanging out where she can see people. She is learning to play fetch and loves running around in the yard with her housemates.  She goes in her crate willingly to eat her meals and likes to lay in her crate with the door open. She does make noise in the crate when the door is closed, so would not be a good apartment dog. She does well with her potty training during the day, but does still have accidents if left out of the crate all night, so needs some more work. Amy has short spurts of energy and gets silly and playful and might knock over toddlers accidentally, so we think she would do better with slightly older kids. Her owner thinks she may do best in a home with other dogs since she loves being around them and playing with them so much.

GT Sheboy
Racing Name:
GT Sheboy
Pet/Kennel Name:
Sheboy
Age:
3.5
Color/Gender:
White female with Black Spots
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Garofolo, Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Garofolo family of Greenville SC, 5.20.20

Sheboy, the girl with the funny name, was named after another famous dog owned by the same kennel that was the same color. The original Sheboy raced in 1985 and was an amazing racer. Sheboy is a pretty big tall girl that was actually mistaken for a boy by our volunteers when she first arrived. Sheboy just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel. She didn't actually race there but was sent there from the Southland Tracj in Arkansas to be placed as a pet with another adoption group. Sheboy was a good racer to be competitive enough for Southland, the most competitive track in the country. She also raced at Orange Park in Florida and raced at the top A level and even competed in Stakes races reserved for the best racers at that track. She raced 83 races and weighed in at 67lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Shanett. Sheboy is just a little timid at first. She is an amazing girl though. She came right in and walked over shiny floors like she had done them her whole life. She just got into her crate and laid down on the trip up and never made a peep. She got in a car and road on the backseat the same way like she had done it all her life. She is very good with kids and is used to being around the kids of her trainer at the track and farm. She paid absolutely no attention to the cat or small dog moving around her and seemed like she was already used to being around both too. She turns 4 on August 11th. More as we get to know her.

Boo Boo Jones
Racing Name:
Boo Boo Jones
Pet/Kennel Name:
Booboo
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Covard, Aiken SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Rideout family of Aiken SC, 5/19/20

Booboo just arrived from Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park in Jacksonville. She is a tiny girl that weighed just 55lbs. She never raced due to an uneven gait caused by short muscles in her hind end. She was checked out by our vet and it looks like that was just the way she was born and not anything that needs to be fixed. She can run and play normally and just moves differently. She is a little overwhelmed and unsure about her recent move from racing kennel to home. She is most comfortable in her crate but is slowly getting brave enough to lay down out of it with other dogs. She is pretty shy at first, but her foster home is seeing more tail wags and happy behavior each day as she gets more comfortable. Booboo passed her cat test without any interest at all and laid down when she met the small dog so she should be fine to live with either.  Booboo is a littermate to Scotty that arrived at the same time. Her sire is Atascocita Bowl and her dam is Miss Kay. She just turned 2 on April 8th. She was vetted at Clinton Animal Hospital. More as we get to know her.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Garrett, Lexington SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Giardano Family of Columbia SC, 5.19.20

Hokey Pokey just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. She raced a total of 28 races at Ebro and at Derby Lane, but got bumped in the backstretch on Feb 1st. Hokey Pokey had sore muscles and went back to the farm to heal up and rehab. After she healed up, she went back to racing on the training track on the farm. She continued to have some soreness after races so they decided to retire her. She seems fine to run and play normally as a pet, but just wouldn't be a good candidate for lure coursing, agility or other performance events. Hokey Pokey raced at 62lbs. She turned 2 on February 16th. Her sire is AJN Chris Bosh and her dam is Flying Champagne. She was a little overwhelmed the first day she arrived but by the second day she was zooming around the yard and going up to everyone for attention. Her trainer says that she would do great in just about any home. She is a friendly, sweet, happy girl. She passed her cat and small dog tests with just some curious sniffing so should be able to live with either. She was vetted at Clinton Animal Hospital.

Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Broquet (Woodruff, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Broquet family of Woodruff SC, 5.17.20

Emma just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Tracks sudden closing. She raced an incredible 233 races and was an incredible racer. She is the current track record holder for the 660 length with a time of 36.72 back in 2017. No dog has been able to beat that time since then and no one ever will, now that the track is closed. So she is famous and we are thrilled to be able to place her! She started out her career at Palm Beach but raced nearly all of her races at Daytona. Emma is little, racing at just 58lbs. She will turn 6 on October 14th. Her sire is Aerial Battle and her dam is KL Elaborate Eva. We placed her littermate LB's Ghost Chili and also LB's Red Chariot and LB's Busy Work both from the same mom. Emma was a little overwhelmed and timid when she first arrived but it only took her a couple of days to relax and get comfortable. Now her foster home describes her as one of the most loving and sweet dogs that they have fostered. She will make an awesome pet for a lucky family. Food Court probably needs to have a home without cats. She is being fostered with tiny dogs and has gotten used to seeing them running around in the house, but she still gets overly excited about seeing small dogs running around outside and tiny dogs she doesn't know. Food Court is a confident girl that is used to being treated like a superstar. Like any Diva she can be bossy over her space, and doesn't like sharing food or beds with other dogs, so may do better as an only dog where she can be the center of attention. She loves attention and absolutely loves everyone she meets. Even though she likes kids and has shown no grumpiness about space or food toward people, because she is that way with other dogs we would prefer to place her in a home with no small kids.

Fostered by (location):
Kelly Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Chinn family of Simpsonville SC, 5.16.20

Pin just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track that is closing at the end of March. She raced only 18 races there and never won one of them. She is a tiny girl that weighs just 55lbs. She is mostly black with a white blaze on her face and white feet and chest. Pin turned 2 on November 13th. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is PJ Wicked. Pin is a friendly girl that seemed to handle all the new things in retirement very well. Pin was vetted in Salisbury and is ready to be adopted. Pin is an active girl that hasn't outgrown the chewing phase yet so will need supervision and training on what is OK to chew and what is not. She walks great on leash. Pin can be loud in her crate so wouldn't be a good apartment dog. She does have a pretty high prey drive so needs a home with no cats. She is being fostered with some small dogs and is mostly fine with them, she just has no idea where her feet are, and tends to trample the little dogs when she gets excited. She does great with slightly larger dogs that aren't as fragile though. She is a very sweet girl with a friendly happy personality. She likes being around other dogs and probably would prefer a home with other large dogs.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Frymire, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Olson family of Greenville SC, 5.16.20

Special Needs Heart Problems! Bones came in from the Daytona Beach Track Closing. He raced at the Waverider Kennel there. He raced 94 races there, and did race a couple at Orange Park early on too. He wasn't real good and only won a few at the lower levels of racing. He just turned 3 on Feb 1st and raced at 73lbs. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is B's Elite Wendy. Bones passed his initial cat test with some sniffing and then lost interest but was too interested in cats when meeting them later so at this point he probably would do better in a home with no cats. He is a friendly guy that has a wonderful personality. Bones seems smart and picks up things fast. When he came in he excitedly pulled on leash checking everything out. After just a little coaching he started walking nicely on leash. Bones is used to being around and handled by the 5 kids of his trainer so should be good with children. When Bones arrived our vets noticed that he had a significant heart murmur, enlarged heart and an irregular heart beat. He has been seen by a specialist at Upstate Specialists and does have what looks like genetic heart problems that are likely to continue to get worse and shorten his life. It is amazing that he was able to race and that his heart held up to that strenuous activity. We are starting him on a medication that will slow his progression into Congestive Heart Failure. Once he gets into Congestive heart failure he will have 8 to 10 months. We do not know how long he will have with the medication. Bones is just the sweetest guy with a wonderful personality. He is still goofy, playful and fun and everyone that has met him has fallen in love with him. Our vet suggested limiting playtime to 10 minutes and no lure chasing or really strenuous play. Bones is a special guy that deserves a very special home for whatever time he has left.

Scotty passed his cat and small dog tests with just some curious sniffing. He does get excited by fast movements so will need careful supervision with small fast moving animals at first. He got very excited when we tossed a toy when taking pictures. He is being vetted at Northeast Animal Hospital in Columbia.  More as we get to know him.

Sol just arrived from Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She is a tiny girl that weighed just 50lbs at the vet. She never actually raced. She is a young girl that won't turn 2 until August 9th. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Easi Bandit. Sol is very sweet, and playful and still acts like a puppy. Her response to meeting a fluffy white dog was to crouch down and crawl along the ground in a submissive puppy posture. Sol also passed her cat test with just some curious sniffing before she lost interest. Sol was a little unsure of everything new in her foster home at first and would pace around the house before finally laying down. Sol was jumpy about loud household noises at first. She seemed to prefer to be around other greyhounds so may do best with another greyhound for company. She loves toys and loves going for a run in the yard after going potty. She was vetted at Clinton Animal Hospital.

Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Johnson Palmer family of Greenville SC, 5/6/20

Chunky Monkey is one of a litter of pups that was born after we got a pregnant female from the Birmingham race track named She'sLikeNoOther (Beauty). We are not sure how she got knocked up but they think it happened when she was moved from a track in Florida to Birmingham in January and they think the dad was Apology Excepted because he was her traveling companion. We got her in February when she started showing. She had 6 healthy pups on March 4th. Chunky weighed 1lb 2oz when he was born and 18.7lbs at 9 weeks old when he was adopted. All the pups are friendly and social and were raised using the Puppy Culture Protocol. They all know to sit for food and treats and are trained to use a litterbox. Most of them will also potty on leash. The pups have been around kids and toddlers since birth so are very used to children. They also lived with a small dogs and have been introduced to cats. All the pups were introduced to a variety of people of different ages and sizes and have been well socialized to people and things they may come in contact with in the home environment. Greyhound puppies are not like the calm adult greyhounds we love. They are very high energy when young and need large fenced yards to run and play in to build strong bones and muscles. They need complete supervision like a toddler because everything goes in their mouth and gets chewed or eaten. They can be very destructive if their energy isn't drained through play and acceptable forms of exercise. Greyhound puppies are like any other puppy when small, but they quickly grow to full size and may weigh 50 to 80lbs by 8 months old. At that age they can run around 40 mph but are still huge clumsy pups. Greyhound puppies bite and play very rough. They require a lot of training and need experienced homes with room to run.

Greyhound puppies are like any other puppy when small, but they quickly grow to full size and may weigh 50 to 80lbs by 8 months old. At that age they can run around 40 mph but are still huge clumsy pups. Greyhound puppies bite and play very rough. They require a lot of training and need experienced homes with room to run.

Risky just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel. She was in the very last load of dogs from the now closed Sanford Orlando Race Track. Risky also raced at Dubuque, Wheeling Downs, and Naples Ft Myers. She only raced 18 races and only was able to win one race after she got to Orlando. So her career was just getting started when it ended. She is a tiny black girl that raced at 56lbs. She will turn 3 on September 16th. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is JB's Thunderbolt. She passed her cat test after sniffing thoroughly and deciding that the cat wasn't that interesting. She should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She is also used to being around her trainers children at the race track too. Risky did pretty well when crated alone with just a little whining but settle fast and was roaching (upside down with legs in air) the first day. More as we get to know her.

This litter was named for John Mellencamp's song Jack and Diane. Her sire is Boc's Tony Romo and her dam is DK's Leapinlizzy. Chili has been vetted at Clinton Animal Hospital.

Maddie came to us because of the recent kennel and track closings in Florida. Her kennel shut down due to the Corona Virus. Her racing owner got her and several other dogs back to her house and got them vetted for us so we could place her. She raced 27 races at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. Maddie only won 3 races in her career. She is a small brindle female that raced at 58lbs. Maddie will turn 3 on September 19th. Her sire is Eyes Loaded and her dam is CTW Flirtatious. We places some other pups by that sire and dam and they are great pets. Maddie is very affectionate and sweet but is just a little overwhelmed and timid about new things for the first few days. She seems to gain confidence from being around other dogs so probably would do best in a home with another large dog or greyhound. She likes being beside people. Maddie is quiet and walks well on leash without pulling. She loves laying outside in the the sunshine. Maddy has shown some interest in cats from a distance but backs away and acts afraid of them if they get close, so we think she is trainable with cats. She is in a foster home with cats so she can get used to being around them. More as we get to know her.

Addy raced her entire career of 55 races at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida. She had just won 3 races in a row and got up to the top A level when her kennel closed. So her career was cut short just as she was getting really good. Addy is a small fawn female that raced at 60lbs. She will turn 3 on September 17th. Her sire is the famous BD's Grayson and her dam is Flying Lipstick. Addy is a very affectionate and sweet girl. Addy gets a little vocal when excited (feeding time) but is otherwise a quiet girl. She walks well on leash without pulling. She loves squeaky toys. Addy is the more outgoing and fearless of the two girls. At first we thought she would be cat trainable with the cats because she backed away from them but she got more excitable about them as time went on. So now we think she needs a home with no cats.

Frivolous is very much like her brother, she is high energy and a lot of fun. She is not afraid of anything. Taught herself the stairs right away. She crates well but can be a bit wild when she first comes out. She needs a lot of training and work on walking nicely on leash. She does potty on leash though and is very food motivated. She will need a home with dog experience that will be willing to work with her and do some obedience with her. Her foster home described her as a little 'simple' but adorable. She loves everyone and tries to stand up to give hugs and will put her paws on your shoulders. Her foster family decided to keep her pretty much as soon as they met her.

Smote just retired from the Bolton Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track. He was raised at the Plum Creek Farm. Smote only raced 14 races. He got bumped in a race and was injured in July of 2019. He took time off to heal up and started racing again in October. Smote raced a few more races and even won one of those. In his last race in October he re-injured himself. He was rehabbed. He started running in some schooling (practice) races after he was healed up. He kept getting sore after his schooling sessions so they decided to retire him. Smote shows no sign of any injury. He is very large and very strong and excitable. Because he is so excitable and curious about everything, he pulls on leash and tries to go check out everything at once. He gets so happy to see you he bounces around and may jump up on you. He is a big boy racing at 84lbs and is incredibly strong. Because of his enthusiastic greetings he would not do well with toddlers, small kids or elderly people that may not be steady on their feet. He seems like a big goofy guy that would never intentionally hurt anyone but might just because he has no idea how big he is. He seems friendly and sweet and isn't intending to do the wrong thing, but is very active for a greyhound and definitely needs a strong leader that will set rules and teach him how to be calm and mannerly. Smotes sire is Dyna Double One and his dam is PJ Never Ask Why. Smote is very excitable and was pretty excited to see cats and small dogs but quickly focused on other things too. We just weren't able to get a good reading on him so need to do more testing with him before deciding if he would be able to live with either. More as we get to know him.

Belt is a little guy that raced at just 64lbs. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday on March 25th. His sire is Boc's Tony Romo and his dam is DK's Leapinlizzy. We also got his littermate LN Chili Dog at the same time. Belt is a friendly happy guy. He has decided he likes dog beds and is doing great in his foster home. He potties nicely on his leash walks so may do OK for a home without a fenced yard. More as we get to know him.

Amigo just arrived from the Waverider Kennel due to the Daytona Beach Track suddenly closing down. He raced most of his career of 60 races at Daytona Beach but also raced some at Orange Park. He got up to B level and won a few races. Amig is a goofy, outgoing, 2.5 year old brindle boy that raced at 70lbs. He won't turn 3 until September 26th. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Iris Of Ruckus. Amigo was very interested in the cat at first. After it slapped him he wouldn't go anywhere near it again though, so we think he would be trainable with a cat that would slap him once. Amigo will be vetted at Northeast Animal Hospital in Columbia SC. More as we get to know him.

He was the winner of the 2017 Orange Park Redemption Stakes and the 2017 Orange Park Holiday Sprint Consolation Stakes. He was a 2018 Orange Park Patton Silver Cup Finalist too. Sum Dog raced his entire career of 185 races at Orange Park and raced nearly all of his career of 185 races at the top A level. He is a smaller male that raced at 68lbs. He turned 4 on September 8th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is L's Rovi. He seemed fine with the small dog he met and passed his cat test with just some curious sniffing. He liked the kids he met and is being fostered with kids. He is exceptionally friendly. His whole body wags when he meets someone. He is vocal and talks excitedly whining and making noises when someone new comes in the kennel. He is pretty active for a greyhound and very sweet. He loves to jump up and give hugs so we are working on that. Sum Dog has personality to spare.

Flossie just arrived from the Waverider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race track that just closed. She had a short career of only 26 races and only won one of those. She started out racing at Wheeling Downs in WV. When she couldn't win a race there, she was moved to and easier track Orange Park Race Track in Florida. She still didn't win any races so she moved to Daytona Beach where she finally won one. She came in toward the back of the pack after that though. Flossie raced at 63lbs and turned 2 on December 7th. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is Easi Key. Flossie passed her cat test with just some initial sniffing, then lost interest in the cat even though the cat still wanted to interact with her more. She should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. Although she is used to being around the kids in her trainers kennel, she may do better in a home without small kids. She was uncomfortable with kids she didn't know going up to her to love on her. According to her trainer, Flossie is a very laid back but friendly girl.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Stroble family of Greenville SC, 4.3.20

Special Senior! Fitz initially came in from Derby Lane in Florida. He is a big guy that raced at 82lbs. His sire is Group Rooster and his Dam is Cool Princess. Fitz's will turn 10 on May 2nd and has been in his adoptive home since November of 2012. His family adopted his brother Oneco Kennedy - Ned when he retired in 2014 too. Both dogs are being returned to us because their family has a 1 year old child and doesn't have time to exercise and supervise the dogs now. Now that the baby is mobile, it has become annoying to the dogs and it has been growled at. Although Fitz is normally friendly and happy around kids, he would prefer a home without small kids that might crawl on him or fall on him. Fitz is a very loving boy that settled right into foster care initially without any problems at all. His foster dad thought he would be a great dog for a first time greyhound owner because he was so good and such an easy dog. He gives little kisses and of the two brothers is the more laid back and less needy of the two. Fitz is a gentle giant. He crates nicely and is quiet in his crate so might do OK in an apartment or townhome. He does stairs very well too. Fitz is a great guy that passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either but we will retest when he arrives to be sure since he hasn't been living with either. The photos of him were from when he first arrived so we will get pictures and complete vetting done once he arrives. Because Fitz is a senior he qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250.

Special Senior! Ned initially came in from the Darcy Kennel at Derby Lane. His sire is Group Rooster and his dam is Cool Princess. Ned raced 127 races at Derby Lane and was a pretty big deal as a racer. He raced in big Stakes races and came in 2nd in several of those. He raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized male. Ned was adopted in January of 2014 and has been with his family since then. They also adopted his brother Fitz, who is also being returned. Ned will turn 10 on May 2nd. He passed his cat and small dog tests when he arrived so should be fine to live with either, but he will be retested once he is returned to us. Ned is being returned with his brother Oneco Fitzgerald because his family has a 1 year old child and doesn't have time to supervise and exercise the dogs anymore, which is causing behavior problems. The one year old child is mobile now and has become annoying to the dogs, so has been growled at. Although Ned normally like kids, and is very friendly with them, he would prefer to live in a home with no small kids. Ned is very outgoing and happy and that made him a kennel favorite at the race track. He is the more needy and playful of the two brothers. Ned is also a very smart guy that is a bit of a houdini. He figured out how to get out of a regular metal crate in foster care when he first arrived. We said then that he would require a plastic vari kennel that he can't escape from when potty training and manners training in a new home. This photo is from when Ned was at the track. We will get new photos when he is back with us as well as have him freshly vetted. Because Ned is a senior, he qualifies for the reduced adoption donation of $250. Ned and Fitz can be adopted separately.
