Fostered by (location):

Own it just arrived from trainer Kathi Lacasse at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a young guy that was too slow in training and just couldn't keep up so he never actually had an official race. He won't turn 2 until July 1st of next year. His sire is Pat C Sabbath and his dam is JT's Pat Benatar. Own it doesn't have a racing weight since he never raced but we would guess him to be in the mid 70s. He is a friendly friendly happy guy that didn't seem too worried about all the changes in his life. Own it passed his small dog test easily so we are hopefully he won't want to chase kitties either. Really sweet boy. He started out wanting to help drive by getting into the front seat. He settled down fast and laid down for the rest of the trip though so travels really well. He slept all night quietly in his crate the first night in his foster home and only whined when he needed to go outside the next day. He seems like a really nice easy going guy for one so young.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Brandon Family of Augusta GA 1/19/19

Wally just arrived from the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel. He was sent there from the Daytona Beach Race Track because they transport dogs to adoption groups all over the country. He only had 16 races and won 5 of those so was pretty good. He had an injury in April and was kept and rehabbed in hopes that he would be able to return to racing. That didn't happen so was just officially retired. We haven't seen any sign of any injury, so he is long healed. Wally is a sweet guy that didn't show any interest in the cats he met during his cat test. He is in a foster home with cats and started showing some interest in chasing them so the jury is still out on if he will be OK to live with cats. He liked the toddlers he met.

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Davis family of Lexington SC 1/5/19

Jojo just arrived from the Southern New England Kennel at the Birmingham Race Course. His adoption was pre arranged by one of our families, that waited for him to retire, so he isn't available at this time. Jojo raced 166 races mainly at the C and B levels but did get up to A level briefly one time. He raced his entire career at Birmingham. He is a small male that raced at 66lbs. He turned 4 on August 6th. His sire is DK's Prime Time and his dam is Designers Choice. Jojo does have a pretty high prey drive and was too interested in kitties during his cat test but corrected. He would look away and behave with a correction from a person and stayed away from the cat after a slap. He did get interested again later though. He may be trainable if he was around cats for awhile, but his foster home has no cats so we think it would be best to place him in a home with no cats. He was similar with a small dog and was interested at first when it would run around but he quickly calmed down and lost interest once he realized it was just a dog. His foster home has a small italian greyhound and he has gotten used to seeing it running around, so we think he is trainable with small dogs with plenty of supervision at first. Jojo is a sweet, happy, friendly guy. He is adjusting fast and seems to be a smart boy that wants to please. He figured out how to get out of a wire crate that wasn't very sturdy and now is in a sturdier one that has proved to be escape proof. Even when he was out unsupervised he had no accidents in the house and didn't get into anything. Seems like he is a very good boy. He makes a very high pitched whistle sound when he whines and even his bark is very high pitched. He sounds like a tiny dog rather than a greyhound.

Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Henrick, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Raines Family of Lexington SC 1/5/19

Cooper is a 5 year old guy that raced at Daytona Beach, Sarasota, Flagler and Dubuque. He wasn't very fast so was moved from track to track in hopes of finding one that he could be competitive at. He raced 87 races at the lowest levels and ended his career at Daytona Beach in January of 2017. Cooper was initially placed through another adoption group that was in the process of shutting down. He was returned to that group by his first adopter after being in a home for about a year in January of 2018. Then he was in foster care for nearly another year. The group reached out to us to place him, since they had shut down. Cooper is a large 79lbs brindle greyhound. He is pretty energetic for a 5 year old and loves to go for walks and jogs. His foster mom was taking him on 3 mile walks every day with her. He does have a pretty high prey drive so needs a home with no cats and no tiny dogs that look like bunnies. He is fine with larger dogs and greyhounds. He is in a foster home with older kids and is fine with them and likes them. He can be a little grumpy about his space so needs a home without small kids that wouldn't understand that. He loves to be up on the beds and couches. He likes to play with toys and is a happy guy. He is a very confident guy that can be a bit dramatic when he doesn't get what he wants or is asked to do something he doesn't want to do. He just turned 5 on November 24th. His sire is Kiowa Mystic Job and his dam is Kiowa Trey Tatoo. He wasn't crated in his former foster home but has been learning to crate again since he arrived with us. He is very good on leash.

His sire is the famous Soprano Drive and his dam is Dutch Cami. Dalton seemed to like the kids he met and greeted them calmly. He also did great with the cats and small dog he met. He seems like a calm friendly guy so far that is very well behaved. He road well on the trip up to the vet and put his head on the shoulder of the driver the entire trip. That earned him a new home with their family.

Dyer, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Masterson Family of Forest City NC 1/12/19

LeLonnie is a sweet brood mom that had at least one litter of puppies after she retired from racing. She was a good racer starting out her career at Palm Beach, then moving on to Orange Park. She went to Wheeling in WV from there to race. She retired after 166 races in March of 2015 and went back to the farm to be a mom. She had a litter of 5 in September of 2015 that is racing now, but no other litters have been registered yet. There are likely to be others that are too young to register though. Lelonnie is a very friendly sweet girl that gets along very well with other dogs. She loves adults and children. She raced at 64lbs and turned 8 on May 2nd. Her sire is Lonesome Cry and her dam is Breezing Easy. Lelonnie did not pass her cat test but she seemed fine with a small white dog she met. LeLonnie's foster mom says she is settling in exceptionally well to home life. She is laid back and very easy so would be a great first or 4th greyhound. Exciting news! We are working on getting one of her sons that just retired from racing!! Because she is a senior Lelonnie qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250.

She did do fine with a small dog she met though. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Flying Wikipedia. Star seemed a little overwhelmed at first but was still pretty friendly. She liked the kids she met. More as we get to know her.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kelly Family of Simpsonville 1/5/19

Kylee Jo retired from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL over a year ago and has been in an adoptive home since September of 2017. She is looking for another home because her family is too busy to give her the attention they would like to. They are gone a lot and Kylee Jo has some separation anxiety. She is fine when they leave if she is crated, but that means she has to stay in her crate for long periods of time. She may do better in a home with another dog or with a family who has someone that his home most of the time, so she isn't completely alone all day. Kylie Jo is a 63 lb red female that turned 3 on September 19th. She raced 24 races but only won 2 of those early on so was retired young. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is Chasmo's Ginger. Kylee Jo passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. She lived with a cat in her previous home and is being fostered with small dogs now. She has been living with a 2 year old toddler and likes her and is great with her most of the time. She has gotten annoyed enough to growl a couple of times though, so may do better in a home with older kids that require as much supervision with dogs and know how to act around dogs.  Kylee Jo is a very sweet girl that is very friendly and loves every new person that comes to her house. She loves her ears rubbed and will chatter her teeth in happiness. When she goes to the greyhound playgroups she would rather stand with the people getting petted than run around with the other dogs. She loves going for walks and is good on leash. This is a happy, waggie girl that has the biggest, prettiest eyes. She does sometimes fuss and whine in her crate when she is left so would not be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse.

He finished up his career in Birmingham. He is a very friendly, happy guy. He raced at 69lbs and turned 4 on August 1st. His sire is WW's Cowboys and his dam is WW's Shamrock. Toby was quite interested in the first cat he met until the cat slapped him. He did not want to get near the cat again after that. He is being fostered with cats and has completely left them alone so he is very trainable. He did fine with a small dog he saw and really liked the kids he met too. He seems like he has a lot of personality and is going to be a fun guy. Toby has been very quiet in his kennel so far, so may be a good choice for apartment living.

Fostered by (location):
Glymph, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Peine family of Waxhaw NC 1/5/19

Foolish Pleasure was named for a great race horse. He wasn't as famous as the horse, but he was pretty good, racing most of his career of 100 races at the top A level and competing in a couple of Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. His last race at the Palm Beach Race track was back in August and he won it. Since he stopped racing even though he was winning, that is usually a sign that there was a minor injury. It looks like they hoped he would return to racing after a few months off, but that didn't happen, so he was eventually retired and sent to the Birmingham Alabama Race Track adoption program to be transported to adoption groups. He seems fine now. Foolish Pleasure raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on April 25th. His sire is NMS Sweet Thing and his dam is from Australia, Manyara Bale*. Foolish Pleasure passed his cat test without any interest. He also was very good with the small dog he met. He seems like a calm sensitive guy. A little overwhelmed by all the changes. He is sweet and walks up to people for attention when out of his kennel or on leash. He backs up nervously if you reach for him when he is in his kennel. He didn't shy away from the small kids he met when on leash. He is just a little timid at first and seems like he will warm up fast. More as we get to know him.

Indescreet (yes is is actually spelled that way) just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course's adoption kennel. She actually raced her entire career of 102 races in Florida though. She raced at Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando race tracks. She just was sent to Birmingham because they transport a lot of dogs to adoption groups across the country. Indescreet got bumped in her last race and hurt her leg a little bit so needs to be leash walked for a little while and shouldn't be allowed to run around. It is just some slight swelling on the tendon in her back right leg and she is barely favoring the leg. She hurt herself on November 30th so has already had a month of recovery time. She is a cute brindle girl with a tiny white stripe on her nose. She raced at 62lbs and turned 3 on July 3rd. Her sire is Fortified Power and her dam is Constant Dream. Indescreet passed her cat test easily without interest. She also passed her small dog test. She is very friendly and seemed to like everyone she met including children. She kenneled quietly and nicely when she arrived and traveled well on the trip over. More as we get to know her.

Steve came in from a kennel at the Sarasota Race track. He only raced 20 races and only won one of those so he was retired young. Steve turned 2 on January 6th. He is an adorable little guy that raced at just 64lbs, which is really small for a boy. He has the cutest, unusual for a greyhound, roman nose!  His sire is TK Quick Strike and his dam is Oh Yeah Baby. Steve was too interested in chasing the cats to be able to live with kitties. He was great with a small white dog he met though. Since he has arrived Steve has been really friendly and happy but his trainer says that he is a sensitive guy that has just a bit of a timid side to him occasionally. He wanted to help drive at first, then settled down and went to sleep on the trip up and didn't seem shy or timid at all. Steve seems like he will be a playful, fun guy but only for short spurts. He loves to lay around most of the day and is calm for a young guy. He likes the kids in his foster home and is very well behaved. What a great guy and so cute!! Steve was adopted briefly by a trucker and was great with life on the road for for the first month or so. He seemed to be happiest when they stopped and he stayed home so he is looking for another home where he doesn't have to travel as much. He is a wonderful traveler, he just doesn't want to be on the road all the time.

Country just arrived from the Royal Racing Kennel at Palm Beach Race Track. He only had 3 maiden races for dogs that have never won a race. He came in 8th in two and 6th in one so was retired young. He won't turn 2 until February 17th. Country raced at 74lbs. His sire is Rico's Vintage ane his dam is RCK Sundancer. He seems like a friendly sweet guy and traveled well. Country was pretty interested in a cat he saw at a distance so may not be cat friendly but we will test him and introduce him to cats properly after he finishes up at the vet. He was fine with a beagle in his foster home. Country had a bump on the bone of his shoulder that was biopsied by our vet. Just a calcification and nothing to worry about, but he does have a spot from the biopsy that needs to heal up. Country is a very happy, waggy, guy that is so loving and sweet. He likes everyone he meets. Country is good on leash and likes to go on walks.

Ali just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Florida. She also raced at Dubuque in IA and Naples Ft Myers in FL. She raced 121 races and was good, getting up to A level and competing in a couple of Stakes races. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Boc's Snow Queen. Ali turned 4 on Nov 14th and raced at 60bs. She is a light fawn with a blue instead of black nose and blue on her ears. Ali is a cute little girl with a very sweet friendly personality. She traveled well. When she had her vetting our vet discovered that she has an erratic heartbeat that slows down dangerously when under anesthesia. She will need very careful vetting with only very skilled greyhound vets any time she is put under for the rest of her life. Ali did not pass her cat test. She was much too interested in getting the cat. Once the cat slapped her she did stop and didn't want to get near that cat again, so could possibly be trainable with the right cat. Due to her initial excitement level about the cat, we think it would be safer to put her in a home with no kitties though. She seemed fine with a small 15lb Italian greyhound she met and didn't even get up off her bed when he came in the room. Ali liked the small kids she met. Ali's foster home has decided that they want to keep her.

Lazarus is a light fawn male that only has 2 races listed at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced at 76lbs. He was retired young and was initially adopted in early 2014 before he even turned 2. He lived in that home for over a year before they gave him to a friend. He has been in the second home since. Lazarus now called Bug, is now looking for another home at 6 years old due to his family moving to Hawaii. Lazarus turned 6 on May 4th. His sire is the famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kelsos Isabella.  Lazarus is a very calm guy that is quiet and well behaved. Very sweet. He did pass his cat and small dog test so should be able to live in a home with cats or small dogs. He can be a little timid with new people he meets but warmed up to his families quickly. He lived with a baby in his first home. His current home says he likes kids when he meets them. Since he can be a little timid he may not enjoy being around loud rowdy young kids long term. Most timid dogs like more quiet relaxed homes.

Ticket just arrived from Florida but doesn't have any official races at a track there. He actually raced at Southland in Arkansas and only raced at total of 42 races. Ticket will turn 4 on December 15th and raced at 75lbs. He was very fast, getting up to A level at Southland and even competing in a Stakes race. Ticket looks like he had a minor injury in January of 2017 and was given a break from racing until April of 2017. He only raced one race in April and finished 5th in that race. He must have re-injured himself in that race, because he didn't race again for almost a year. He started back racing in February of 2018. He never returned to his previous speed and only won one race at the lowest D level. He mostly finished toward the back of the pack in his next 13 races. Whatever injury he had, healed up very well, to allow him to go back to racing at the fastest track. He was moved to a lower level track in Florida in hopes he would be a winner there. He never actually raced there and the decision was made recently to retire him. Ticket seems like a calm, friendly guy. He traveled well on the trip up. He passed his cat test easily with barely a sniff. He is very quiet in his kennel and is good on leash. Ticket's sire is the famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kelsos Uptosnuff.

Special Needs! Eight just arrived from a farm in Florida. His sire is Irish - Definate Opinion and his dam is Drop Top. Eight is a very small guy at just 65lbs. He failed out of racing training so never completed the registration process and never got a registered name. He is very young and won't even turn 2 until May 25th. After we got him into a new environment, we discovered that he was feeling and sniffing his way along and appeared to have very limited vision. So the reason he didn't chase the lure was because he couldn't see it. Our vet checked Eight's eyes and found he can see light and dark but definitely has very limited vision. Our vet was not able to make a definitive diagnosis with the equipment she had. Eight's eyes are clear and look fine. They don't bother him or cause him any pain. Our vet said this isn't likely to be something that can be reversed. Eight gets around amazingly well once he learns his surroundings. His lack of eyesight is most noticeable when he is in an unfamiliar place. Dogs have such sensitive noses and use them so much that they are able to smell their way around their environment very quickly.  Eight is doing great in foster care and is turning into a snuggler that wants affection. In just a few days he got comfortable enough in the house to play with toys. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily and is living with both in his foster home. He was appropriate with the toddlers he met and greeted them calmly and didn't shy away but didn't seek them out either. Eight also had to have both of his lower canines removed at our vet because they were not aligned right and were poking into his gums causing pain. He is on soft food now but he will be able to eat regular dog food after his mouth heals up. Eight has the most beautiful glossy coat and is a real stunner and so sweet.

Steppin Out just arrived from trainer Kathi LaCasse at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced 118 races and also raced at Naples Ft Myers FL, Dubuque IA, and Southland in Arkansas. She got up to A level at a couple of those tracks so was pretty good. Steppin Out's sire is Flyin Man of God and her dam is SE's Tali Aspen. She raced at 62lbs and turned 4 on July 30th. She is an outgoing happy girl that travels well. Steppin Out was too interested in chasing kitties to be able to live with them. We thought she may be trainable at first because she did back off when the cat slapped her but when the cat moved she got too excited again. So she needs a home with no kitties. She did fine with the 15lb Italian greyhound she met though and is being fostered with dogs that size. More as we get to know her.

Magic just arrived from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced most of his 102 races there. He also raced some races at Southland in Arkansas. Magic was a good racer getting up to A level at Orlando. He will turn 4 on December 7th and raced at 74lbs. Magic is very unusual because he has a pink nose instead of a black nose like most greyhounds. Very unique and very cute. His sire is KC and All and his dam is Norah Jones. Magic passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either. He has liked the kids he has met too. Magic was a little overwhelmed by all the changes at first but is figuring everything out pretty fast. New things like ceiling fans are a little scary.  He walks very nicely on leash and is quiet in his kennel. He is great on stairs and went up and down with no problem from the start. He is a pretty friendly guy that just needs a little time to get used to a new environment.

Express just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Florida. She also raced some of her 124 races at Derby Lane in Florida and just a few at Wheeling Downs in WV. She got up to the top A level a couple of times but mainly raced at the lower levels. Express is a very friendly happy girl that gives kisses to just about everyone she meets. She is a natural sitter which is unusual for a greyhound. Most just aren't comfortable in that position and choose to stand or lay down instead. Express will drop into a sit often and seems quite comfortable though. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and her dam is Flying Hall. Express turned 3 on March 6th. She passed her cat test without any interest when they were still, when they moved she was interested but wouldn't actually go up to them again. She was was tested with a black cat and a tabby cat - both short haired. Later she was more interested in a white long haired cat roaming the vet's office so seems like she would do best in a home with short haired cats only. She did fine with the small 15lb white Italian Greyhound she met. She loved the toddlers she met and gave them kisses and really seemed to like children. More as we get to know her.

Robert just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He is a very young boy that never actually got to the race track. He just wasn't interested in chasing anything so flunked out of race training. Robert is a tiny guy that doesn't have an official race weight but we would guess him to be around 62lbs. He celebrated his first birthday on May 5th. His sire is WW Time Warp and his dam is Cahillusmarshall. Robert is a sweet submissive puppy boy. He gives everyone he meets kisses and keeps his head body low when meeting people or other dogs. He is also very dramatic and will yelp like a pup if he even thinks something might hurt. His racing name of Iron Man really doesn't fit him, he is not a tough guy at all. Our vet and her staff commented on what a cry baby he was when they were working with him. He is very sweet and loved the kids he met, giving them gentle kisses and wanting to be with them. He passed his cat and small dogs tests easily, as we expected. He didn't want to chase them any more than he wanted to chase the lure. Robert traveled well and crates well. He seems well behaved for a young pup, but he may get more active as he gets more confident in his new surroundings. This is the first time he has been off his farm so everything is very new to him he is definitely very unsure of himself. He was worried during his photo shoot and didn't want to look at the camera.

Edward just arrived from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is an extra large male that raced at 82lbs. He is a stocky guy that is all muscle. He also raced some of his 114 races at Southland. He was pretty fast getting up to B level at Southland, which is a very tough track. He got up to A level once he moved to Orlando. Edward's litter are all named for characters in the Netflix series House of Cards. We also placed his littermates Doug Stamper, Frank Underwood, Heather Dunbar, and Skorsky. Edward turned 4 on October 29th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is  D's Honey Badger. Edward traveled well and kennels very well. He was friendly, playful and happy at the racing kennel, but has been a little unsure of himself since he has arrived. He is pretty friendly with adults, but was afraid of the kids he met and would shy away from them, so we think he would do better in a home without young kids. He did pass his cat test and just gave the cat a casual sniff and walked off. He also was fine with the small 15lb dog he met. So far Edward has been very calm, well behaved and sweet.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Winall Family of Trenton SC 11/23/18

Beckham just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at Orange Park in Jacksonville Florida. He is a young fawn male that preferred to play instead of race so was retired with no official races. Since he has no races listed he doesn't have an official racing weight but he weighed about 71lbs at the vet. He is a tall boy and will probably put on a few more lbs in retirement and be a larger male. His sire is Counselor and his dam is CTW Rosemary. He was born on a beautiful farm in Texas. Beckham celebrated his 2nd birthday on the day he arrived with us November 1. He is a very outgoing guy that is playful and silly. He still has a lot of puppy in him. He seems like he is a pretty smart boy because he figured out how to escape from a wire crate. He is in a plastic vari style crate now that works best for the houdini types. Beckham doesn't seem to be phased by much. He likes everyone he meets. He is curious about everything new and wants to sniff or taste it and is willing to climb up to get it so will need some work on manners. Beckham can be noisy in his crate so wouldn't be a good apartment or townhouse dog. He was too interested in the cat when he was tested so needs a home with no kitties. He is being fostered with a small Italian Greyhound and was also fostered with an older bassett hound so should be OK with smaller dogs. He spends a lot of time trying to convince other dogs to play with him and would do best with a playful dog that would enjoy that type of thing. He loved the small toddlers he met and kept going back to them to kiss them every chance he got. Beckham is an adorable pup with a big personality that is going to be a lot of fun.

Loki was good and got up to the top A level and even competed in one stakes race. He raced for Blanchard Kennel. Loki is an extra large male that raced at 88lbs. He turned 3 on August 9th. Loki's sire is the famous Craigie Whistler and his dam is TMC's Jaylowe. He was a kennel favorite and was encouraged to put his feet up on your shoulders to give gentle hugs-see his other pictures. He loves to give kisses too and is very outgoing and social. He is a big dog that is very strong and very curious. He pulls hard on leash and needs some work on leash manners. Loki is definitely a needle nose with a long overbite that makes his nose even longer than most. He passed his cat test easily. When he went up to sniff the cat he got slapped by the cat. He yelped and cried and nearly fell down trying to get away from the cat and wouldn't go back near that cat or any other after that. He loved the small kids he met, but is so big and bouncy that he may do better with kids that are a little older that he wouldn't accidentally knock down. Loki is a big guy with an extra large personality to match.

Xander is a friendly, happy brindle guy that raced at 70lbs. He initially came in 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's 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. He turned 3 on June 7th. 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. Xander is a very confident guy that can be a bit pushy, so he needs a dog experienced home with a confident owner. He is a very happy guy that is curious about everything and not a bit shy. Xander has already been in a home for awhile. He crates when told, sleeps quietly alone all night and gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home. He corrects easily with an ACK sound if he does anything he should not do. He is very smart and seems to learn quickly. We have him marked no kids because he has shown some grumpiness over his space when laying down.

She was initially adopted through Greyhound Lifesavers and was returned to us to rehome. Her owner felt that she spent too much time alone due to her busy schedule. Patches just turned 10 on August 20th and really doesn't look her age. Just a gorgeous girl that doesn't have a lot of white on her face yet. Her sire is Oneco Spirit and her dam is Hammer This. Patches passed her cat and small dog tests and loves children. She is quiet in her crate and well behaved, she does whine when she needs to go out though. Her favorite place to be is the bed closest to a person. She is used to being on a couch or human bed and will get up on either.  She is a very sweet girl that was just a bit overwhelmed when she first arrived. Because she is an older gal she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee.

He is an unusual blue fawn color that is kind of a grayish peach color that is a rare color for greyhounds. Canelo just retired from Southland on July 2nd.

He has 99 races listed and a few of those were at Daytona Beach in Florida. Canelo turned 3 on Jan 30th. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Hershey.

He loves people and is pretty calm. He is a very strong guy and we are working on his leash walking because he does tend to pull. Canelo seems like a really nice guy that is just gorgeous.

He already has good manners and is used to living in a home. He gets along very well with other dogs as you can see from his photo. He also is great with cats and children. He has done meet and greets and loves meeting people and is very outgoing and loving. Bamba travels well and takes everything in stride. If he is adopted out in the Charlotte area he will come with free dog sitting from his current foster home. This is a sweet, friendly guy that is well behaved and already a great pet. Bamba loves his crate. He has shown some anxiety when left alone if no other dogs are there. He seems fine if he has another dog to hang out with so would do best in a home with at least one other dog. Bamba is very calm and laid back in the house but does love to make a few laps every day in the yard. He would love to have a home with a fenced yard to play in.

Wheeling is one of the top tracks in the country and she was one of the top racers there. Blast raced 97 races and always at the top AA level. She won a lot of the top level races even winning 5 in a row. She was retired from the top level in April of 2015 and went back to the farm to be a mom. She had a total of 20 pups that have been registered so far. 5 in July of 2015, 8 in March of 2016 and 7 in October of 2016. There may be a younger litter that hasn't been registered yet. Blast has retired now from mom duties and is ready for a couch of her own. Blast is a cute little light brindle girl that will turn 8 on December 13th. She raced at 64lbs. Blast's Sire is BD"s Grayson and her dam is AMF Bone Bruise. Blast passed her cat test with just some initial sniffing then lost interest. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home too and was friendly with the children she met. She is very outgoing with everyone. She seems like she is pretty calm but still has a fun playful silly side too. She carries her head and her tail high and just has a quiet confidence about her that so many mama dogs have. She has been encouraged to give hugs at the farm and sit because she does both. She wants nothing more than to put paws up on your chest for a hug and will just stand there as if expecting you to dance with her. She is pretty gentle about it but may not be a good choice for someone that is unsteady on their feet. Blast is very good on leash.

He gets along great with the other two large male dogs in his foster home and also did great with smaller dogs he met. He even allowed puppies to jump all over him, so seems to have a very sweet temperament. Tor passed his cat test easily too, without much interest. He loves going for walks and is very good on leash. Tor seems like a calm guy that will be a great pet. He is a very handsome, black guy with one cute floppy ear that doesn't always match the other. He is very cute and sweet!

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lydolph Family of Davidson NC 10/27/18

Nosey came in initially from the Birmingham Alabama Race Track. She was sent to the greyhound adoption group there because they transport thousands of retired greyhounds to adoption groups all over the country every year. She actually raced in Daytona Beach FL. She has 26 races listed and raced at 64lbs. She is young and won't turn 3 until March 10th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen, that one of our volunteers adopted after he retired. Her dam is AMF Set Aside. Nosey won a few races in her short career and wasn't bad. She is a sweet girl that is pretty calm for a younger girl. She is excellent on leash and travels very well. Nosey was a little interested in the cat at first but lost interest quickly and has been living with cats in her foster home. Nosey is good with dogs of all sizes and lived with a small Italian Greyhound. She does fuss about being in her kennel some when by herself, so may not do well as an apartment or townhouse dog. Nosey was in a home for a few months and they called her Winnie. They did not have a fenced yard so had to be leash walked to go potty. She didn't like going potty on leash and prefers to go in a fenced area where she can sniff around and find the perfect spot. She started getting very dramatic about being taken outside to potty and would scream and cry. Now that she has a fenced yard to go in and doesn't have to go for lots of long walks every day, she is enjoying walks again. No more drama and no more accidents. She loves having the other dogs around and seems to be a follower that enjoys the company of others. She is a very sweet loving girl that just must have a fenced yard. Because of her dramatic nature we think she would do better in a home without very young kids that might bother her or fall on her. She seems to like small kids just fine when she meets them and for short visits though.

Fostered by (location):
Tomkow, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Schabot Family of Simpsonville SC 10/24/18

Minnie just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course. She only raced one of her 49 races there though. Minnie traveled around to quite a few tracks. She 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 good racer so moved around a lot looking for a place where she would be competitive. Minnie will turn 3 on November 28th and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is WW's Whiteclover. Minnie is a shy girl at first but warms up fast. She seems to be little more shy with men than kids and females. She is being fostered with a calm 8 year old child. With most timid dogs are a little too timid around very loud fast moving small kids. Minnie travels well. She is excellent on leash and goes potty on leash walks so may do OK without a fenced yard.

Hooyah/Butler/Big Guy
Age:
3.5
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Brenot, Raleigh NC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Janssen Family of Camden SC 10/23/18

Hooyah is an extra large, red brindle, male that came in from the Melbourne Race Track in FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras. Hooyah only raced 11 races, winning only one of those and usually finishing toward the back of the pack. He was retired young when he was just 2 years old. He has been in an adoptive home since June of 2017 and they were calling him Butler but he also answers to Big Guy or Big Boy. Hooyah celebrated his 3rd birthday on March 19th. He raced at a whopping 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. Hooyah is a calm, well behaved guy. He wanted to snuggle on the car trip and stood with his head on the driver's shoulder a lot of the trip. He is fine with cats and good with small and large dogs in his foster homes. Hooyah is quite friendly with adults and children too. He has only a couple of big fears, shiny floors and stairs. This is true of most greyhounds that have not seen shiny floors or stairs at the race track. Both would be considered hazards for racers, so they are just not something that most greyhounds have ever seen. Most relax after a few successful trips down stairs or across a shiny floor, but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after living in a home with some shiny floors and stairs for a year, he prefers to avoid them. A home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs would be Hooyah's dream home.  We have found that Hooyah is more confident with shiny floors when wearing non slip boots on his feet, and he looks very cute in them too. Hooyah can do 4 or 5 porch stairs to get outside, but longer flights of stairs are scary for him. He has a very unusual brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side but lot more brindle striping on the other. He looks like a completely different colored dog depending on which side you are looking at. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference.  Hooyah is very good about doing his business outside on leash, so doesn't require a fenced yard. He hasn't had one accident in his foster home. He is always happy to see his foster mom or dad come home from work and bounces happily for a minute then, but is otherwise very calm. Hooyah is very friendly and loving. He was in an adoptive home for awhile so is already home acclimated. Hooyah was returned because he would whine sometimes and his owners thought he may have some type of pain in his neck or back that was causing the whining. Hooyah has not shown any sign of having any pain since we got him back. He whines occasionally like a normal dog, but not like he is in any pain. We kept him for observation for over a month and took him to our vet to be examined to be sure. Our vets have cleared him for adoption because they have found nothing wrong with him other than being overweight. We have him on a diet and he is getting back down close to what he should weigh. Hooyah is a very affectionate, sweet, sensitive guy that will be a very loving pet.

Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Owens, Greenwood SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Gaddy family of Cornelius, NC 10.21.18

Prudent just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. She also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV. She raced 150 races and got up to B Level. Prudent is a mostly white female with some brindle spots that raced at 64lbs. She will turn 4 on Christmas Day. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Myth and her dam is Flying Sage. She was too interested in cats at first meeting at the track so they didn't think she would be OK with them. When we introduced her to our cat she remembered cats had claws and wouldn't get near it after the first time the cat swatted her. She only wanted to get out of the room and away from that scary cat. Since she did great in our cat test, but was interested at her first meeting, we listed her as trainable with cats. Prudent also did OK with the small dog she met. She has a wonderful, very outgoing personality. Very friendly and loving and will give you lots of kisses. She was loud in her crate at first but did quiet down except to let you know when she needs to go outside. She may not be quiet enough to be an apartment dog though. Prudent is a happy, bouncy girl that is energetic and fun.

Boomer
Age:

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
McManis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Fox family of Aiken SC 10/20/18

Boomer is a brindle boy that raced at 72lbs. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Speedy Petal. He only raced 18 races at Southland in Arkansas and broke his hock October 3 of 2013, back when he was only 2. The break was splinted there by a vet and he was sent to us for rehab. Our vets also checked his leg and agreed that he would heal up fine in a splint and the break wouldn't require surgery. Boomer's break healed up nicely and he was adopted in December of 2013. He was returned to us for rehoming in 2017 because of financial problems, that made a move in with relatives necessary. Boomer was adopted quickly then and has been in a home for over a year. Boomer has just been returned again because his mom's health is failing. She is no longer able to care for him. This sweet boy has just had some bad luck over the years. Boomer likes to go on short walks and is great on leash. He can run around and do whatever he feels like doing, but probably wouldn't enjoy long hikes or jogs due to the old injury. He does favor the leg sometimes. Boomer turned 7 on August 11th. He is a sweet, very calm boy that is very good and already home acclimated. He is a little timid at first and a bit overwhelmed but warms up. He is very lazy and is happy to just have a soft dog bed to lay on. He isn't a dog that follows you or bothers you for attention. Boomer potties nicely on leash so may not need a fenced yard. He is a gorgeous, brindle boy with the prettiest eyes. Boomer has lived with cats and small dogs in his first home. When Boomer was first with us he loved his crate and was very quiet in it while he was on crate rest for the broken leg. He was so quiet in his crate we felt he may be a great apartment dog. He would probably not be able to do a lot of stairs due to his old injury and would at least need an apartment on the ground floor. He would be perfect for someone that didn't have much time or energy for walking and exercising dogs. His former owner says he loves kids and she is hoping that he gets a home with a child. The pictures are from when he first arrived and was younger.

Rico's Kwanza
Racing Name:
Rico's Kwanza
Pet/Kennel Name:
Kwanza
Age:
10
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Tompkins Weldy family of Simpsonville SC 10/20/18

Sweet Senior! Kwanza was a super star when he was racing. He was the Winner of the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Middle Distance Championship and placed 3rd in the 2010 Tri-State WVGOBA Open Sprint. He raced 80 races at Tri-State and Wheeling winning at the top A and AA levels and competing in many Stakes races reserved for the best racers at those tracks. He was retired from racing in December of 2011 and has been at his owners farm since then. He had to have a toe amputated on his front foot at some point which is pretty common in pet greyhounds if they dislocate or break a toe. It is long healed and isn't even noticeable unless you are counting toes. Since the painful toe was removed there is nothing there to cause pain and he can run and play normally. Kwanza did sire one litter of pups back in 2015 but they weren't great racers like he was, so it doesn't look like he sired any more pups after that. He has been just hanging out at the farm as a pet until now. Kwanza raced at 72lbs and is short and stocky. His sire is Larking About and his dam is Myokie Flame. We got his half brother, Axe - Rico's Pollax, at the same time. Both have the same mom. We already placed two half sisters Rico's Tignanello and Rico's By A Nose (also same mom). Kwanza turned 10 on January 31st. Since Kwanza is a senior guy over 8 he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Kwanza passed his cat tests with some initial interest that only last until the cat slapped him. Then we couldn't pull him back to the cat. We think he would be easily trainable with a confident cat. Kwanza walks perfectly on a loose leash and doesn't pull. He gets along really well with other greyhounds. He has been completely vetted and had a dental and a few tooth extractions and is in good health and is ready for a loving home.

Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Lane, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Mowery Family of Waynesboro PA 10/20/18

Eugene just arrived from a Florida farm where he has been living since he retired from racing in March of 2018. He raced mainly at the lower levels but did get up to B level a few times in his 57 races. He raced most of his career at D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane, but also raced briefly at Gulf. Most 4 year olds would have a lot more races. Eugene was taken out of racing for a year from December 5th of 2016 and not put back into racing until Nov of 2017 after a collision and fall in a race. He went back and had 15 more races after his year long break. Eugene is a gorgeous 71lb black male. He came in specifically for an adopter that owned his uncle and made arrangements with his trainer to adopt him through us. So Eugene is not available for adoption at this time. He is the sweetest, most gentle boy, that gives kisses to humans and other dogs alike when he meets them. He passed his cat test easily and has been fine with a small dog too. He likes kids and everyone else he meets. He pulls on leash some, curiously checking things out. He is a calm guy in the house though and very well behaved. He crates really well but does whine sometimes, so probably wouldn't be quiet enough for townhouse or apartment living. At the track, some of the other boys would bully him and he didn't even defend himself. His track trainers ended up always turning him out with one or two other gentle boys like him, rather than with the larger pack of more rowdy males. Eugene will turn 4 on September 26th. His Sire is Makeshift and his dam is Celtic Dream.

Parker just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He raced all of his 99 races there and was a good racer. He mainly raced at the top A level and won quite a few races. Parker raced at 68lbs so is a smaller guy. He just turned 3 on September 22nd. Parker's sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is WW's Rock Star. Parker is a very calm, easy going guy. Although he resists going in his kennel at first, once he is in there he crates quietly and is being fostered in a townhouse. Parker is excellent on leash. He gets along great with the other greyhounds in his foster home, male and female. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be fine to live with either. He also travels really well. We were told that Parker was a little shy when he first arrived at the track but he warmed up to his trainers within 2 weeks and followed them around and was their best friend once he warmed up. He has been a little jumpy with his foster mom if she moves fast or is loud, but he comes when called and will take food out of your hand with no problem, so isn't too shy. Parker seems like a very sweet guy that would be an easy first or fourth greyhound and he is so handsome. Those eyes just draw you in!!

Ally just arrived from a dog farm in Arkansas. She raced 70 races mostly at Wheeling Downs in WV and was very good getting up to the top AA levels at one of the toughest tracks. She also raced briefly at Southland. After she retired in January of 2018, she went back to the farm to be a mom. She had just one puppy a few weeks ago. It was too big and she had trouble having it. The puppy didn't make it and her owners decided to just retire her instead of having more litters. Ally will turn 4 on January 6th. Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is Cidina. She raced at 65lbs. She is pretty good on leash and potties on leash so may do fine with potty walks instead of having a fenced yard. Ally travels really well and just gets in the car and lays down. She is calm in her crate. She can be just a little timid when she first meets you but did great at a busy shopping area and was very happy to let people come up and pet her. She just didn't go up to the people asking to be petted. She does like kids and gets more excited to see them than adults. She is a grinner that smiles when excited. She warms up very fast and was very happy to see us and waggy after just one day. She has a fantastic calm personality. Ally was interested in the first cat she met, but after that was fine with the other cats she met and not interested in them at all. She even walked nicely past several ducks. Ally has the glossiest, gorgeous, black coat. She had an injury to her tail when she was young so now has a cute little nub that is only about 3 inches long. She thinks it makes her even cuter and she doesn't have to worry about it getting shut in a door or gate like other greyhounds.

Sammy just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. She was a fantastic racer that raced at 68lbs! She came in 2nd in the 2015 Orange Park Bestbet Juvenile Stakes Race. She placed 3rd in the 2016 Orange Park Patton Silver Cup and was a finalist in the 2016 Orange Park Bestbet Sprint Classic. Those races are reserved for the best racers at the track. Sammy raced 222 races, and almost always raced at the very top A level races against the other top dogs. She won a lot of her races!! Sammy is a very friendly, happy girl with a great personality and loves everyone she meets. Even though she will turn 5 on November 14th she is still bouncy and waggy. In all her pictures her tail was always a blur because she was wagging it the whole time. Sammy's sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is WW Kay Sun. Sammy did not pass her cat test so needs a home without them. She was fine with a 15lb Italian Greyhound she met. She does seem to need careful introductions to small to medium fuzzier dogs though. She tends to mistake fuzzy things for bunnies until she sniffs them and figures out what they are. Sammy travels well. She can be a little loud in her kennel at first so probably would not be a good apartment dog. More as we get to know her.
