Special Needs Boy That Has Been With Us The Longest! Hitch is a handsome, black guy that came to us from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He is a smaller guy that raced at 66lbs. Hitch raced 30 races and only managed to win one of his races so was retired young. He just turned 3 on April 23rd. His sire is P's Gibbs and is dam is Kiowa Super Cin. Hitch has an auto immune caused dry eye condition, where the tear ducts just suddenly stopped producing any tears. Hitch's eyes were OK when he began racing and his last race was August 8th. When his trainer noticed that his eyes became dry, he was started on antibiotic treatment, lubricating drops and eye flushes at the track. Hitch was at the track waiting on a group to take him from August to December. We got Hitch from the track at the end of December and have worked with our vet and eye specialists to resolve his eye issue.  Our vet started him on prescription lubricating eye drops that were given several times a day when he arrived. Unfortunately that medication didn't work well and he developed a deep ulcer on one eye and had to have emergency surgery to save the eye. When he went in for a recheck on that eye, ulcers were also found on the other eye. So Hitch had to have another emergency surgery on that eye too. One surgery was $2200 and the other was $1800. The eye specialist came up with another treatment plan with drops that can be given several times a day that work to keep his eyes lubricated. This treatment has been successful and he seems to be pain free now and he he is able to see!! So Hitch has finally been released for adoption after 4 months. Hitch is an exceptionally sweet guy that has a wonderful personality, in spite of all the trouble he had with his eyes and the pain he was in. He has been very cooperative with the vets and staff during his surgeries and treatment. Once Hitches' eyes stopped hurting all the time and he could see again, he went from a subdued dog that liked staying in his crate with his eyes closed, to a silly, happy, playful guy. Hitch passed his cat and small dog tests easily, and has been fostered with both so is used to being around them. Hitch has been going to work every day with his foster mom and is very well behaved in the office and enjoys the attention from her coworkers. The pictures of Hitch with the gunk around his eyes were taken when he first arrived. The ones with shaved patches around his eyes were taken right after surgery. The one with Hitch wearing the cone was taken some time after the surgeries and you can see the red grafts. The hair has grown back now and his eyes are clear, but each eye has a reddish patch where a surgical graft was put on to patch the holes in his eyes. You can see the graft in the more recent pictures taken in April with the toy, standing on the wood floor and with the green circle drawn around the eye.

If you are considering adopting this special guy, these are the medications that Hitch is on and what they cost: Twice daily drops of compounded 1% Tacrolimus morning and evening ($75 for 2.5 -3 months supply). Drops of artificial tears several times a day: morning, after work, and right before bed would work (cheap and available over the counter). One drop of Fluriprofin 1 time per day whenever convenient ($12 to $25 dollars depending on where it is purchased, one bottle lasts months). Hitch will need rechecks of his eyes twice a year. Hitch doesn't need drops at night when he is just sleeping. Because of generous donations toward his adoption fee, Hitch's fee will be just $50 and he will come with at least a month's worth of medications. He will need to continue his medications for life.

We have spent nearly $5000 on Hitch's two surgeries, hospital stays and with the specialist trying different medications until we found a treatment that worked. If you would like to help with Hitch's medical expenses please go to our donation page. We appreciate all the donations that have come in for Hitch already!

Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Flying Bassey. Haley is a friendly, happy girl that likes people. She was too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them and tends to mistake small dogs for squirrels or bunnies so needs to live with medium to larger size dogs. She gets along well with other dogs and is a very sweet loving girl that is going to make a wonderful pet.

Reggie just arrived from Miami Florida. She is a young girl that only has 3 races listed and came in toward the back of the pack every time, so was retired young. She won't turn two until June 19th. Her sire is Mamas Special Ed and her dam is Mamas Sunny Skies. Reggie is pretty timid so far. She seems like she wants to cautiously interact with strangers, so probably will be fine with time and is just overwhelmed by everything new in her life. Reggie is quiet in her kennel and sleeps all night. She is a small female that raced at just 56lbs. Reggie passed her cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either one.

Coco just arrived from the CTW Greyhound Farm in Texas by way of the Birmingham Race Track. Coco arrived with her sister Jojo. Neither one of them actually raced. They failed out of race training because they would come out of the box and go straight to the nearest person for love instead of chasing the lure. Just no prey drive or chase drive at all. They are both tattooed Left ear 68886 and right ears are 66a and 66b. So they started the registration process but never completed it to get a registered racing name. One of their sisters, CTW Sugarfoot did complete the registration process so we have all of Coco and Jojo's info on the database through her. We don't have a weight on the girls but their sister is racing at 60lbs so chances are that they are a similar size. Their sire is Trent Lee and their dam is CTW Starlet. They will turn 2 on June 11th. With not even enough prey drive to chase a lure, both should be fine with cats, small dogs and other small critters. There are children on the farm they were raised on that help take care of the dogs so they should be very used to being around kids too. More as we get to know these girls.

Aggie retired from the Sanford Orlando Race track in November of 2017. She also raced some of her 67 races at Mardi Gras Racetrack and Palm Beach.

Her sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and her dam is Macs Lonesomeluv. Aggie was adopted on January 6th of this year, but has not done well as an only dog. Her family tried to work her through her separation anxiety, but finally decided to return her to us so she could be placed in an adoptive home that had other dogs. She has done fine and shown no separation anxiety since she has been back with us. She has been great with the other dogs in her foster home and has kenneled nicely too. Aggie is being fostered with kids and likes kids a lot. She is an excellent meet and greet dog, going to each person for petting that comes up. She has no sense of personal space and loves to snuggle with other dogs and humans. Really a sweet girl. She may need a fenced yard because she likes to take her time to go potty and likes to find just the right spot.

Xander is a friendly, happy brindle guy that raced at 70lbs. He just arrived from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers and Valley. He only raced 38 races but did win enough to get up to the top A level so was pretty good. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is CTU Side Party. Xander passed his cat test with just a little initial interest at first. After a thorough sniffing, he decided that there were more interesting things to sniff than the cat and totally lost interest. He also did fine with the small dog he met. He seems like a fairly confident guy that may be a natural leader. His ears stay straight up a lot and one flips over his head sometimes, which just makes him stand out in a crowd and is very cute. Xander turns 3 on June 7th. He is a friendly guy that seems like he will be very loving and sweet.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Henrick, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Getty Family of Chapin SC 4/29/18

Black House is a gorgeous, large, 79lb, black male that came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. He only raced 26 races and also raced at the Dubuque Track. He only won 2 races in his career so was retired young. He won't turn 3 until August 24th. He is a very calm, laid back guy that is very sweet but very shy. House warmed up to his foster family after a few weeks, but gets very overwhelmed and scared in new places and can be very shy with new people. Nothing bad ever happened to him, he just has a shy, timid personality. He is more of a homebody that usually prefers his familiar environment. He does jump right in the SUV and likes to go for drives though and actually seemed to enjoy the attention of people at a recent PetSmart meet and greet. So he may eventually do better in new situations with more exposure. House does walk pretty well on harness and leash. He is doing great with the children in his foster home and the other dog. With most shy dogs, a house full of loud children may be overwhelming, so if we place him with kids it would be best if it they were quieter kids. House showed no interest in chasing cats when he met them and was more interested in getting into the safety of a familiar crate at the scary vet office. He is normally really well behaved and corrects easily if he does anything wrong. Once he warms up to you he is a happy waggy guy that is very loving. House seems like he will make a wonderful pet. He is just a very sensitive guy that will need time to warm up to new situations and a new family. He generally likes his crate and looks on it as his safe place but can make some noise in it, so probably wouldn't be the best apartment dog. House's sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Lookn Even Finer.

Gunner just arrived from a kennel at the Sarasota Race Track. He also raced at Ebro and Orange Park. He raced 73 races but only won 6 of those so he mainly just placed. He is a big guy that raced at 82lbs. He turned 3 on February 4th. His sire is Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Oshkosh Paris. Gunner is a very sweet, friendly guy that doesn't know a stranger. He will stare up into your eyes and carefully watch what is going on around him with the cutest look on his face. We aren't sure how good his eyesight is though and are having our vet check his eyes. His eyes look completely normal, but his vision just seems like it might be limited. He runs and plays and acts totally normal and it is more noticeable with things up close to him. Gunner was completely sure he could drive the van at first though. He did lay down pretty quickly and travelled well. He goes potty nicely on leash, so may do fine without a fenced yard with regular leash walks. He seems to get along well with other dogs and has liked other dogs he has met both large and small. He gets overly excited about cats though even though he wasn't completely sure where the cat was during most of the cat test. Just the smell of the cat and whatever he could see of the shape of the cat was pretty exciting to him, so he needs a home with no cats. Small dogs seem to be fine though even if cat sized. Gunner is just the most precious, loving guy. He will be your shadow. He is the cutest guy!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Collins Family of Chatham VA 4.24.18

Sweet Pete just arrived from the Birmingham AL Race Course Track adoption kennel. He never actually raced there, but was one that was sent there because they transport a lot of retired dogs to other adoption groups across the country, including ours. He raced 126 races all at the Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He was a pretty good racer racing a lot of his career at the top A level and even winning A level races. Sweet Pete is a stunning 76lb dark brindle guy that is a rich mahogany red with black stripes. He has the most beautiful shiny coat. Just stunning! Sweet Pete turned 4 on December 8th. He is a strong guy that needs some reminders on walking nicely on leash because he gets excited and wants to see everything at once. He is very friendly and has loved all the people he has met. Sweet Pete just couldn't resist chasing the cat, so he needs a home with no kitties. He was better with the little dog he met and just sniffed him politely but was initially interested in him at a distance before he knew what he was. He just needs a careful intro to small dogs that might look like bunnies or squirrels. Sweet Pete's sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and his dam is AMF Blazing Sun. Pete is being fostered with a 6 year old child and really seems to enjoy being around her. We listed him as "older kids only" because he could knock over a toddler accidentally when he was being bouncy, happy and silly. Pete is more energetic and fun than the typical couch potato greyhound. He would be the perfect choice for a family that likes to go for walks or hikes. Sweet Pete will enjoy a more active lifestyle than most. Pete does complain about being in his kennel, so would not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living.

Icon is a gentle 86 lb giant that just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. He never actually raced there but was just sent to their adoption kennel to place with one of the adoption groups they work with. Icon was one of the best racers, getting up to the very top AA level, at the best track in the country- Southland in Arkansas. He also raced at another top track, Wheeling in WV, then Mardi Gras, Dubuque and finally Sarasota. He raced 153 races. Icon broke his leg on January 6th of 2018. He was casted for 6 weeks and put into a soft splint for 2 after that at the track. His splint was removed by the time he got to us and we sent him to Pro Greyhound for rehab. He is finished with that now and has been released for adoption. He will still need a month or two more of reduced activity where he takes it easy on the leg. He shouldn't run around and play with other dogs yet outside for awhile to be sure the leg is very strong. Icon is huge. He raced at a very tall 86lbs. His back comes up to our hip, probably around 31 or 32 inches at the shoulder. Icon has a gorgeous shiny black coat. He is friendly and happy. Icon travels really well and is silent in his crate so may be a good choice to live in an apartment or townhouse. He loves to put his head in your lap for petting and seems pretty calm indoors. Icon can be playful, silly and bouncy outside. Because of his old injury  Icon may not enjoy long hikes. He loves to go for shorter walks though and can easily support his weight and uses his leg. He is a great guy and his foster home just loves his personality. He is a really good guy that seems to want to please and just wants love. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no desire to chase either. He seems to like other dogs and gets along extremely well with the large pack of dogs that his foster home has. He is just a friendly easy going guy that loves everyone he meets. Icon's sire is the very famous DJays Octane and his dam is Silver Idol. He just turned 5 on April 1st.

Gaby Is a pretty red girl that raced 179 races at 63lbs. She was a good racer, racing much of her career at the top A level there. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Waubun Brenda. Gaby will turn 5 on June 8th. Gaby is a friendly, happy girl. She passed her cat test easily and seemed like she already knew that cats have claws and refused to go near the kitty. She is also fine with small dogs. Gaby is very sweet and will sit and lean up against the front of your legs for attention. She is a waggy, happy girl that doesn't seem fazed by anything new so seems like she will do well very fast with her new family. She is very loving and just loves to be close to her humans. She did like the small kids she met briefly but has not been around small kids long term yet. She can complain a bit about being in her kennel, so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Gaby is adapting very well to her foster home and is such a beautiful sweet girl!

Lancelot is a gorgeous big shiny black male that raced at 82 lbs. He just came in from the Birmingham Adoption Kennel but didn't actually race there. He was sent there because they transport dogs to adoption groups across the country. He actually raced 132 races mostly at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced briefly at Palm Beach in FL. He raced most of his career at the mid levels of racing but did get up to the top A level a few times and did win some races. He retired February 12th and has been waiting since then for a group to take him. His sire is Turbo Lennie and his dam is Gable India. Lancelot was way too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them, but he did fine with a small Italian greyhound he met after sniffing it and realizing it was a dog. He should be fine to live with small dogs with a proper introduction. At a distance he tends to mistake most small critters for bunnies though. Lancelot is a big strong boy that needs some work on walking on leash because he wants to check out everything at once. He is very friendly and happy and just a sweet, confident, social guy. Because he is so big and strong we think he would do best in a home with no small kids that he could accidentally knock over. Lancelot could be your knight in shining, black, furry armor! What a gorgeous guy!

She was sent there because they place a lot of dogs with other adoption groups across the country. She raced at Wheeling Downs in WV and most of her career of 91 races was spent at Palm Beach in FL. She was never a really good racer only getting up to B level once and mostly just placing at the lower levels of racing, rather than winning races. Reilly is a sweet, friendly, girl that is mostly quiet and calm in her crate. She only occasionally makes noise but may not work for apartment living because of that. She seems very well behaved and gets along well with other dogs. She just turned 3 on Feb 16th. Reilly is a friendly girl that has liked everyone she has met. She wanted to chase the cat a little too much so we want to place her in a home with no cats. She did great with the small Italian Greyhound she met though, so should be fine to live in a home with small dogs. She is a very sweet girl with a gorgeous, glossy, black coat. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is KB's College Cat. Reilly has settled into foster care really well and her foster home says she is one of the sweetest girls they have ever had and they have fostered a lot of dogs. They are getting very attached to her and will miss her when she is adopted.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the McConnell Family of Columbus, NC 4/15/18

*HAS BEEN WAITING ON A HOME THE LONGEST* Tiger Lady is a retired brood mom that had a litter of 7 puppies in 2015 that are already racing and another litter after that that is still on the farm. She is retired from being a mom now and looking for a couch. She is still young and just turned 5 on February 16th. She raced at Southland, Flagler, and Naples Ft Myers but never was really good. In her last race, in April of 2015, she just quit running so was retired right away. She raced at 72lbs so is pretty big for a female. Her sire is Tiger Boy, a famous dog that one of our volunteers owns. Tiger Lady is actually fostered by her dad's owner. Her mom is BA My Charity. Tiger Lady is a calm, laid back girl. She can be a little timid at first with strangers and seems to prefer women over men at first. She does warm up and gets very excited to see her foster dad now though. She seems to like the kids she has met, but because she can be a bit timid, is likely to be overwhelmed living with very loud wild little kids or a lot of kids. She would do better in a quiet home. Lady passed her cat and small dog tests easily and was more cautious around them and not interested in chasing them. She is a very sweet girl that has been available for adoption since November without much interest only because she is a little shy and because black dogs tend to get overlooked and are often the last ones placed. In her picture her nose looks a little crooked, but it is not. She was just sniffing the air. She is a gorgeous, sweet, girl that has been waiting on the right home for a very long time.

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 5 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.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Covard family of Granitville SC 4/14/18

Maverick is an older gentleman that is looking for a new home because his previous owner died suddenly. He lived peacefully with 5 other greyhounds there, that have all been placed already, so we do fine in a home with other dogs. Maverick will turn 9 on May 24th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Maverick has been retired and in his home since Dec of 2011. He was known as 'Satin' at the track had a very brief unsuccessful racing career of 23 races and only ever won one of those. He actually stopped running in the middle of one race. He raced a few races at Palm Beach, then a few at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and finally finished up at Orange Park in Jacksonville. His owner tried to find a track that he would be competitive at, but Maverick just didn't have his heart into chasing a lure, so was retired young. He was initially placed by the adoption kennel at the track in Jacksonville and was returned to them when his owner passed away. We picked him up from them on a recent track trip. Maverick raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized male. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and that is where he inherited his cute floppy ears. His dam is Surprise Plan. Maverick is a pretty calm guy that still has very short bursts of playful energy. He has good house manners and is friendly and loving. He is in good health and has had excellent care by his previous owner. Maverick likes kids and has been fine with the small dogs and cats he has met so should be good to live with them. He did live with a number of other dogs in his previous home and gets along well with others. This is a super sweet boy that just wants some love and petting.

Naju just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race track. She raced 45 races, mostly at Palm Beach but also a few at Mardi Gras and Naples Ft Myers. She didn't do real well racing at first, but then suddenly started winning races and won several in a row getting her up to the top A level. After her short winning streak she went back to placing in the tougher, higher level races. She pulled up in her last race on November 22nd and has been at the track since then. She had pulled her back in that race, so was taken out of racing then, rested and rehabbed. She has been at the track since then, in hopes she could return to racing eventually. That didn't happen, so they just decided to retire her. Naju's entire litter were named for cities in Korea. Her sire is SH Avatar and her dam is Party Hardy. Naju passed her cat and small dog tests easily and seemed a little nervous around both and preferred to stay her distance. Naju got up the courage to sniff the small dog eventually but never even wanted to get near the cat. She has been pretty overwhelmed since her arrival and seems like she may be a pretty, timid, shy girl. Sometimes they come around quickly after they settle in so we should know more soon. Naju will turn 3 on July 11th.

Rip just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler, Mardi Gras, and Gulf. He got up to B level at several tracks and was moved around to find the place he would be the most competitive. His last race was in November and he was retired because of a sore Tensor Fascia in his hip. It is long healed and Rip is a bouncy, happy boy that does the greyhound grin when excited. He has a lot of personality and the most beautiful shiny black coat. He is a shorter, stocky guy that raced at 77lbs. He looks like a body builder with all his muscles, even after not racing for many months. Ripper is a gorgeous guy that just turned 4 on March 3rd. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is KB's Best Crunch. Rip was very interested in the cat when he met it but after a smack from the cat decided he didn't want to chase cats anymore. He may be trainable with supervision and a confident cat. He is very friendly and bouncy and higher energy than typical. He whines a little in his crate so may not be the best for apartment living but has quieted down nicely in his foster home with time. Rip is very devoted to his people and very good on leash. He often walks in nearly the perfect heel position staring up into your eyes like an obedience dog. He seems to mind well and tries hard to please. He is a wonderful guy that seems to like kids. He has adjusted well to foster care and is good with the other dogs small and large in his foster home. He just has the sweetest personality.

Shades just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She has 99 races listed and also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV. She was a very good racer that got up to A level at Wheeling, which is quite the accomplishment, since it is a fast track. Her last race was Nov 9th and she finished so far back that she was out of the picture. When you see Shades you understand where her name came from. She has brindle spots over each eye that look a lot like sunglasses and she is mostly white otherwise. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Briecat. Shades will turn 4 on May 28th and raced at 62lbs. Shades passed her cat test with only a little initial curiosity about them so should do OK with some initial supervision. She also passed her small dog test and spent the weekend with a small dog in a home and was fine. Shades can be grumpy about her space and doesn't care for kids invading her space, so will need a home with no little kids. She has gotten along fine playing with other dogs in her foster home but doesn't like other dogs coming around her when she is eating or laying down. She is a beautiful girl and seems to know it. She can be a bit of a diva. She loves adults and will seek out affection by putting her head in your lap to be petted and her preference is to be with her people if she is awake. She is very laid back and calm and does nap a lot. She does roo if left alone in her crate so may not be the best dog for apartment living. We found out on a recent walk that Shades loves water and will walk right into a lake or stream to cool off even if the water is pretty cold.

Doug Stamper's litter was named for the characters on the Netflix series House of Cards. We have already placed several dogs in his litter Frank Underwood, Heather Dunbar, and Skorsky and most of the others are still racing at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. Doug is a really big red male that raced at 86lbs. He will turn 4 on October 29th. Doug raced 89 races, mostly at the lower C and D levels but did get up to A one time. He raced at Derby Lane and Orlando. Doug is a friendly, happy guy that is very sweet. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is D's Honey Badger. Doug lays down to eat. He does have moments of excitement though and just loves to chase tennis balls. He also got way too excited when meeting the cat and a really tiny dog to be able to live with them. He did better with a 15lb Italian Greyhound after he was allowed to sniff him thoroughly. He seems like he just needs a careful introduction and should do OK with medium sized dogs and larger. Doug is a really cute guy that seems like a gentle giant. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home and has settled in to foster care really well. He is pretty smart and figured out potty training immediately. He whined just a little the first night or two he was in his foster home. Now he is totally quiet in her town house so may be one that would be a good choice for townhouse living. Doug is a really loving sweet guy that his foster home says is just the best dog.

Don't let Trouble's name fool you, he is actually very sweet. He just came in from the Birmingham Race Track but he never actually raced there. He was just moved there because the track adoption group there transports a lot of dogs from many tracks to adoption groups across the country. Trouble actually raced at Palm Beach, Naples Ft Myers and Sanford Orlando. He wasn't a good racer and only won 3 races so he was moved from track to track in hopes that he would find a place where he could be more competitive. He was just retired in March when that didn't happen. He is a pretty young guy that won't turn 3 until September 21st. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is TNT Temptress. Trouble raced at 73lbs and is a friendly, happy guy. He was way too interested in chasing cats to be able to live with them. He did do fine with a yorkie and an Italian greyhound he met though so should be OK to live in a home with small dogs. What a cute puppy face this guy has!

Owen just arrived from the Bolton Farm in the Orlando FL area. He has been there since he retired from racing in March of 2014. Owen was a fantastic racer and was one of the fastest racers in the country when he was racing. Racing at the top AA level and winning Stakes Races at Southland in Arkansas, which is one of the top tracks in the country. Owen placed 2nd in the 2012 Southland Festival of Stakes Sprint. He also raced at Abilene KS, Birmingham AL and Sanford Orlando tracks during his career. Owen won his owners nearly $70,000 during his career of only 60 races. He was retired to stud so he could pass on his good genes to lots of future racers. Owen is ready to retire from that life now and be just a pet. We placed Owens brother Odell too when he retired from racing. He was also a star racer and the 2012 Bob Balfe Champ so good genes run in the family. Owen raced at 75lbs and is around that now. He is a beautiful rare blue brindle and is just stunning. He has a thick furry farm coat now from being outside a lot on the farm but that will become more sleek as he is in the house more. Owen seemed friendly when we visited the farm recently. They told us that Owen felt he was the top dog on the farm, and wasn't always tolerant of other males, so he may need a home without other male dogs. Owen will turn 8 on May 2nd. Owen passed his cat test easily without much interest in them. He does love kids and has several that come to the farm that he loves to play with. His favorite is a 3 year old.

Amy is a young girl that only had 4 schooling races and never an official race. She started out her schooling at Palm Beach and then was moved to Sanford Orlando for one more attempt before she was retired and sent to us. She is a small girl at just 56lbs. She just turned 2 on February 27th. Her sire is Fuzzy's Cannon and her dam is Amazing Run. She was too excited about the cat when she met it, so needs a home with no kitties. She did great with the small dogs she met so should be able to live with them. Amy also likes kids. This is a fun, happy girl that is very friendly. Since Amy is so young she does still have some playful puppy energy. This little girl is completely a fresh slate that will be a lot of fun for her future family to work with and mold into the perfect dog. Amy learns fast and has learned how to walk politely on leash since she arrived. She understands the leash now and that she can't bolt after squirrels she sees. She does not go potty on walks and waits until she gets back to her own fenced yard to do her business off leash. So she will need a home with a fenced yard. Amy loves to play with toys and will carry stuff around. During a recent construction project at her foster home she would find bits of tile or other construction stuff and carry it around and play with it. Her foster home has really fallen in love with her sweet quirky personality and say she will be one that is harder than most to part with when she finds a home.

Sparks just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track.

She is very short but stocky and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is Atascocita Gray and her dam is Backwood Barbra. She was initially interested in the cat until the cat slapped her, then she didn't want to get near the cat again. We think she would be trainable with a confident cat with supervision. Sparks did fine with an Italian Greyhound that she met. She is settling in to foster care very well. She whined to let her foster dad know that she needed to go outside from the first day in a home. She was initially nervous on stairs but figured them out within a few hours. Sparks doesn't like to go potty on leash, so probably will need a home with a fenced yard where she can pick the perfect spot to go and have her privacy. She does seem to pick up new things very quickly and doesn't seem to stressed by new things except for shiny floors. She is still learning that it is OK to walk on shiny floors and they do bother her to begin with. Her name fits her, Sparks is a happy, friendly, silly, girl that seems like she has a bouncy, fun personality. She does need some more work on her leash manners because she is very curious and wants to go check out everything.

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, calm, loving guy.  He passed his cat and small dog tests easily without interest in chasing either. He was more interested in getting attention from the people than the cat or the small fluffy dog. He is exceptionally loving and good with people and a very well behaved guy that wants to please. He absolutely loves having other greyhounds around and loved going to an all greyhound doggy day care. We think he would do best in a home with another greyhound. He needs a fenced yard because he doesn't potty well on leash and likes to find that special spot and have privacy to do his business. Kolby has been in a home since late January but he just never was happy there. His owner has a number of other dogs that steal his beds or try to curl up with him. Kolby is good with the other dogs but doesn't seem to be sure what to make of the other breeds and just gets up and moves off the bed politely. The other dogs seem to be drawn to him and won't leave him alone. If his adoptive mom corrects the other dogs for taking his bed or bothering him, sensitive Kolby thinks he did something wrong and leaves the room. His adoptive mom has decided that although, Kolby is the perfect, loving, sweet, dog, he would be happier in a different home, one with greyhounds and fewer other breeds of dogs. At the track Kolby lived with a large pack of other greyhounds, but he had his own crate where he could eat and sleep undisturbed. He has been boarded with other greyhounds and he was happiest in a boarding situation around other greyhounds. He was reported to have a calming effect on the other dogs he was boarded with.

Spin came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track at the beginning of January. She raced 97 races in all and traveled from track to track a good bit. She also raced at Flagler, Naples Ft Myers, and Palm Beach and traveled back and forth between those tracks. Racers are often moved from track to track in hopes they will find a place where they are competitive when they are not winning at one track. Spin is a 64lb red girl that turned 3 on June 3rd. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Electra Chick. Spin is sweet and likes people. Although Spin has loved the children she has met, she can be a little touchy about her space when laying down. She would do best in a home without small children that won't understand that. Spin is silent in her crate so may be a good apartment dog. She was a little overwhelmed at first by all the changes in her life and was a little nervous, but has settled in well now. She passed her cat test and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either.

Heather had her last official race at the Sanford Orlando Track on June 17th. She also raced at Derby Lane and had a total of 52 races listed. Heather is a dark brindle girl that raced at 71lbs and turned 3 on October 29th. Her entire litter was named for the characters on the Netflix series House Of Cards. We have already placed her littermate Frank Underwood and her sister Skorsky. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is D's Honey Badger. Heather was a pretty good racer getting up to B level in June. She got a sore hip though so was pulled out of racing for a few months to give it time to heal. After her long break her trainers gradually got her back into shape for racing, but when she chased the lure again her hip got sore again. So now she has been retired for good. Her hip is fine for normal pet activities and she runs and plays without a limp now. Heather is a friendly girl that likes people. She sticks very close to her foster mom from the time she got to her house. She has paid no attention to the small dog in her foster home so should be OK to live with them. She was very interested in the first cat she met, but after the cat slapped her once, she wouldn't get near it again. She should be trainable with supervision with a confident cat. Heather likes kids a lot and goes right up to them and gives kisses. Even though she loves kids we think she should be placed in a home without small kids and their toys. We were told that she loves toys and will steal them and doesn't like to give them back. Heather was perfectly behaved at the vet and has settled in to her foster home really well. She is a very sweet loving girl.

Catalpa's litter were all named for types of trees with the Superior prefix.

She only won 4 races so was moved around in hopes her owners could find a track that she would be competitive at, but that wasn't to be the case. In her last race she wasn't paying attention and missed the break out of the box. She still managed to come in 6th, but they decided to retire her. Catalpa is a 62lb red female that is young and won't turn 3 until June 27th. Her sire is Shonn and her dam is Superior Tingler. Catalpa is a very friendly girl that was hard to get pictures of because she would run right over for an extreme closeup as soon as she saw anyone come in. She really likes people and seems like a very happy, outgoing girl. Catalpa passed her cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. She loved the kids she rode to the vet with and kept trying to get in their laps in the car.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Schoenberger family 3/2/18

Tig is a retired brood mom that just retired from being a mom and is coming to us from a farm in Arkansas. She had a litter of 7 pups in 2014 and had another litter recently. We already have one of the most recent puppies that is pending adoption now.  We also placed her sister Rico's By A Nose recently. Tig was a star at the race track and was a finalist in the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Juvenile Stakes Race. She competed in other big stakes races too during her career. She raced at the top A and AA levels. Tig started out racing at Wheeling Downs in WV in 2010 and moved to Tri State Race track in WV in January of 2011 and raced the rest of her career there. She retired in March of 2013 after 139 races after racing her entire career at the top levels and winning many races. Since she was such a good racer her owners decided to let her become a mom in hopes her racing skill would be passed on to the next generation. Now she is finished with mom duties and is in full retirement. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is Myokie Flame. Tig turned 9 on November 24th. Because Tig is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Tig passed her small dog test easily and is being fostered in a home with cats so we should know how she does with them very soon. She is a good traveler and just lays down and enjoys the ride. She is a happy girl that doesn't act nine at all. She is curious and seems to take everything in stride without being stressed. She is very friendly and likes meeting people. More as we get to know her.

Shy is coming in from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. She only had a few schooling races there and finished so far back she was out of the picture in one and just stopped in the front stretch in her last schooling race. Since she was clearly not interested in racing, she was retired young at only a year and a half old. Shy will turn 2 on July 17th. She is a 64lb light fawn brindle girl. Her sire is the famous SH Avatar and her dam is Jet Force. When Shy arrived she was actually pretty shy and very overwhelmed. She may take a lot of time and patience to warm up to her new family. Everything seems to scare her at first. Shy passed her small dog test. She was actually afraid of the small dog but would get brave enough to cautiously sniff him. We didn't cat test her because she was so scared. We figured one test that day was enough for her.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the White family of Simpsonville SC

Izzy is a greyhound puppy that was stepped on by her mother when tiny. Her leg broke and wasn't able to heal correctly without surgery. Look at her other photos to see her X-rays. Pro Greyhound, a group that takes in injured greyhounds, gets them the surgery they need, and rehabilitates them after surgery, got her the surgery she needed. The orthopedic surgeon charged $2500 to have it done. Please help fund her surgery if you can by going to their page for info - Pro Greyhound. The puppy will be in a cast then a splint for some time and won't be released for adoption until February or March. The surgical repair was successful and the leg should be usable again if her rehab goes as expected. Although her leg has to be painful she is used to it and takes it all in stride. She is a sweet friendly girl that is completely a puppy and not the calm, well behaved, retired dog that most greyhound owners are used to. As with all puppies she will need supervision and training and will have to be taught manners.  She will needs an experienced owner that can help her become a well behaved adult. Her sire is Group Rooster and her mom is Rico's Tagnanello. She was born July 7 of 2017. She was tattooed at 3 months with her siblings.

Rascal just arrived from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Hallandale Beach Florida. He also raced briefly at Derby Lane near Tampa. He only raced 11 races and the best he did was to place 4th in one of those. In the rest, he was back toward the back of the pack. Because he didn't show any promise as a racer he retired very young. Rascal won't even turn 2 until May 15th. He raced at 71lbs and is a gorgeous, shiny, dark brindle guy. He is friendly and seems pretty calm for such a young guy. He does need some more work on walking on leash without pulling because his race career was so short and he didn't get much experience with that. Rascal passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest so should be able to live with both. His sire is KL's Raymond and his dam is Kiowa Tara Tess. Rascal whined some in his crate a bit the first night but quieted down the next day so we don't know if he will be OK for apartment living. More as we get to know him.

She loves to go for rides in a car and will jump right in and lay down. A really good traveler. She doesn't seem to be bothered by much. Ney was too interested in chasing the cat she met to be able to live with one. She was good with the other dogs she met large and small. A very cute girl with the prettiest high contrast brindle markings with lots of black stripes. She was quiet in her kennel even the first night she arrived. More as we get to know her.

Daffodil is a cute fawn female that will turn 7 on June 2nd. She is a small girl that raced at just 56lbs. Her sire is the famous Kelsos Fusileer and her dam is Kelsos Spitfire. She raced 57 races at Mardi Gras and Flagler in FL and Dubuque in IA. She mostly raced at the lower levels but did compete in a few A races. Daffodil raced her last race December 1st of 2014. She was retired to a farm to be a brood mom but didn't end up actually ever having pups. We got her in early 2016 and she was adopted by a family in March of 2016. That family moved to Florida recently and didn't have time for Daffodil due to a new grandbaby and travel for work. They gave her to a another family there, that turned her over to the adoption group at the Orange Park Race Track in Florida. We work closely with that track adoption group so they contacted us and got her a ride back to our group. Daffodil has been in a home for nearly 2 years so is home acclimated. She was living with cats in her previous home and would share the couch with them and never bothered them. She was also used to being around children and was good with them. We heard she could be an occasional counter surfer and had chewed a few things when left home unsupervised. Fortunately Daffodil does great if left in a crate when home alone, so that prevents any unwanted behavior. She likes her crate and often goes in the crate to rest on her own when the door is open. Daffodil doesn't really like traveling and long rides. She is friendly and likes people but prefers to be a homebody. She is so pretty and very very sweet!

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Jacobson Family of Irmo SC 2/3/18

Dudley initially came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He never had an official race, because he had an injury to his hock while he was in race training. It has completely healed and he has been in an adoptive home since May of 2017. Dudley was just returned to us on 1/6/18 by his owner Jamie Pilgrim of Pickens. On arrival he only weighed 42lbs and was a walking skeleton with much of his hair missing and open pressure sores. Dudley is under vet care and against all odds seems like he will recover, probably because he is so young. Our vet has checked him over and his blood work looks normal and nothing was found that would cause this other than starvation. Dudley turned 2 on August 16th and is a mid sized male that should be at least 75lbs. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Hey Dodi Lou. Dudley is a cute, friendly boy that seems pretty calm for a 2 year old. He is quiet in his crate so may be a good dog for a townhouse. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily. He loves being around other greyhounds and dogs and is much more happy and waggie when they are around. He was a bit more reserved at his first foster family's home where he was an only dog. Dudley is an adorable, loving guy that is already home acclimated.  He is terrific with small children and dogs of any size, even those around him who may be very energetic and playful.  He currently needs a daily thyroid pill which is very inexpensive. The good pictures of Dudley are all from when he first arrived from the track. Some photos of him after his return and his ongoing recovery are in his other pictures. 

Update Jan 14th: Dudley is eating well and has soft beds to lay on now. Most of his pressure sores are scabbed over. He still has a long way to go but looks like he is slowly putting on weight. 

Update Jan 20th: Dudley is still doing great and has put on 10lbs. He weighs 52lbs now! Our vet is very pleased with his progress. 

Update Jan 26th Owner Jamie Pilgrim of Pickens pled guilty to felony animal cruelty. 

Update Feb 3rd Dudley has a new family pending his release from the vet! The Jacobson family of Irmo SC wanted to make his adoption final on the day of his Dashing For Dudley Fundraiser when they met him. He can't go home with them and their other greyhounds quite yet because our vet wants him to stay close until he has put on more weight. His adoption contract has been signed and completed so he officially has a family now and will be home very soon. Dudley's generous fans raised over $1000 for him during the fund raiser!!

Dom just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a young guy that had a very short career of only 3 races and finished last in all of those. Dom is a handsome black male that raced at 73lbs. He is very young and won't even turn 2 until May 18th. His sire is Golden Squire and his dam is B My Merlot. Dom passed his cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He hasn't shown any interest in the cats he has met since either. Dom is very sweet and friendly, so much so that it was hard for his foster mom to take pictures of him. Whenever he saw her looking at him he would come straight over to her to get attention. Dom likes to play with toys. He has done just a little whining but is mostly quiet in his kennel. He has an outgoing but calm personality. Dom walks great on leash and has no problem with stairs or slick floors. No accidents in the house and will whine when he needs to go outside. Very well mannered and pays attention when corrected.

Shania just arrived from the Bushey Kennel at the Melbourne Race Track. She also raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville. She raced 74 races at the lower levels of racing. Shania mainly just placed, but did win 5 of those races. She is a tiny white female with black spots that raced at just 54lbs. She turned 3 on October 19th. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Kane's Sugar Ray. Shania has been a little overwhelmed since she arrived. She seems like a sensitive, cautious girl that just needs a little time to warm up to new people and new situations. She is friendly and does cautiously approach strangers with her tail a little tucked at first. She seems like she will warm up fast. Shania did not pass her cat test. She did lose interest in a still cat eventually, but kept wanting to chase it whenever it moved, so we think she needs a home without kitties. She was similar with the little dogs she met, but did do better eventually after being around the one in her foster home for awhile, so she may do better with time. She just has a hard time resisting anything that is small that moves fast at first.

Nokerr had no official races. We did find 6 schooling races at Palm Beach Race Track for her and she finished toward the back of the pack in those. Nokerr retired very young and won't even turn two until April 20th. She raced at 60lbs. Her sire is Coldwater Konow and her dam is TB's Star Baby. She was initially very interested in the cat she saw but after the cat slapped her once she backed off. She cautiously went up for another sniff and got slapped again. Then she stayed as far away from the cat as she could. So we think she may be trainable with a confident cat and plenty of supervision. Nokerr did great with an Italian Greyhound in her foster home so should be OK with small dogs. Initially she was very vocal in her kennel when she first arrived but corrected well and has quieted down now. Nokerr may not be a good choice for apartment living, because she has sounded the alarm when she sees someone outside that she doesn't think should be there. She does sleep all night by herself in her kennel so may do fine as an only dog. She walks nicely on leash and did great on her first walk in the park. She is friendly with people she meets and seems pretty calm for one that is so young.

Alexa just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She actually had 5 maiden races at Derby Lane first, but came in toward the back of the pack every time. Just too slow, so was moved to Orlando in hopes she would be more competitive there. She schooled a few times there and was retired without an official race. Alexa is a pretty white girl with fawn (tan) spots. She raced at 63lbs and won't turn 2 until March 4th so is very young. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Penrose Karrie. She was interested in the cat she met at the race track, but we retested here and she just sniffed the cat. When the cat slapped her she wouldn't go near it again and just wanted to get out of the room. She was curious and a little playful when introduced to the small dog but was intimidated by the yappy little dogs at the vet's office. She seems like a sensitive girl that is a little unsure of everything new right now. More as we get to know her.
