Available Hounds

These are the retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. New greyhounds arrive about every two weeks. If you don't see what you are looking for please fill out an adoption application and we can often find what you need. Satellite foster areas include Greenville SC, Charlotte NC, Columbia SC, Greenwood SC, Augusta GA, Anderson SC, Charleston SC, and Myrtle Beach SC

Most greyhounds can live with cats and small dogs with careful introductions and supervision. Please note that the results of the cat and small dog testing listed by each hound below may be the result of only one encounter with only one small dog or cat. Even cat and small dog tolerant greyhounds, must be introduced to new animals very carefully and supervised at first. Greyhounds do not usually encounter small dogs or cats in racing kennels and your animals may look very different and get a different reaction from the what they were tested with. Please see our Cats and Greyhounds page for tips on how to safely introduce cats and small dogs to greyhounds.

Most greyhounds are great with well behaved kids. Although most of our foster homes do not have kids, we introduce our greyhounds to children and watch the dog to see if they have the temperament for living with kids. Unless noted, the dogs may not have experience living with kids or prolonged contact with children. Please see our Kids and Greyhounds page for tips on managing kids and greyhounds together.

Fostered by (location):
Doby, Salisbury NC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Bob initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is nearly all white except for a red spot over one eye that looks a bit like an eyebrow. He is a very cute 69lb boy that raced only 30 races. He started out racing at Tri State in WV but didn't do well there so was moved to the Orlando Track. He only won 2 races so was retired. Bob will turn 4 on September 18th. His sire is Handball Victory and his dam is Snap A Heel. Bob is a happy boy that can be just bit timid in new situations at first. He passed his cat and small dog tests and lived with several cats in his previous home. Bob has been in an adoptive home since June of 2016 and has been called Darby since then so he should know both names. He was returned because he has shown some possessiveness over his space and toys. Otherwise he is a great guy with good house manners and is home acclimated. Because he is possessive with toys and his space Darby needs a home with no children and needs a confident, dog experience owner. Bob gets along great with all the dogs in his foster home so would be perfect in a home with other dogs, he doesn't seem like a dominant dog with other dogs and quickly fits into a pack with no problem. His foster dad has seen no sign of any of his previous behavior.

Fostered by (location):
Kaage in Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Trey originally came in from the Goodman Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is a small 68lb brindle male that will turn 5 on August 26th. He also raced briefly at Derby Lane early in his career. He was a top level racer in Orlando competing and winning at the top A level against the best dogs at that track. Trey's trainers were very attached to him and planned to keep him as a personal pet after he retired. They rescued a small dog from a bad situation, so weren't able to keep another dog when Trey finally retired though.  When he first arrived at their race track kennel he was very shy and overwhelmed. They worked him through that and helped him build his confidence in the year and a half he raced with them. His trainers said he was the absolute sweetest boy once he warmed up. He was really upset when the hauler came to take him out of the kennel to bring him to us and he had a moment of panic. He was better by the time he reached us and didn't tuck his tail or really seem shy at all. He seemed to be adjusting to home life remarkably well in foster care and didn't seem like a really shy dog at all. He was in an adoptive home since November, but progressively got more and more fearful with the family and even developed a fear of the yard. Trey spent a lot of his time in the bedroom away from everyone so eventually they decided that he would do better with another family. Trey is not shy with other dogs large and small and has lived with both. We would prefer not to put him in a home with children since they can be loud and scary. We think he probably needs a quiet home that will let him initiate contact when he is ready. Trey's sire is Odd Ulysses and his dam is Topaz Sallyhally.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Tommy is a gorgeous, black and white boy that raced at 74lbs. He just came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras in FL and at Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA.  Tommy raced mostly at the mid levels but did compete in a couple of high level stakes races early on. His last race was in January of 2016, so when we got him he had been waiting in a racing kennel for a year for a group to take him. Tommy is a sweet, friendly, boy with an excellent personality and would have been adopted quickly if people had just had the chance to meet him. He walks nicely on leash and will potty on leash so doesn't need a fenced yard if his family is willing to leash walk him. Tommy did not pass his cat test at the track, so needs a home with no kitties. He did great with the small dogs he has met and is being fostered with two small dogs. He was placed in a home in February of 2017 but hasn't been comfortable with the small child in the home so was returned to us. Tommy is home acclimated and will bark to let you know when he needs to go outside. He is the rare greyhound that will bark to alert you that someone is at the door too. Tommy turned 5 on March 19th. His sire is RA Blazer and his dam is Jenna Bear.  Tommy is a happy, friendly boy that is doing great in his foster home.

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Fuse came in from the Waverider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. She raced 80 races there, won 8 of those and placed in more. Fuse fell in her last race and didn't finish the race. An X-ray found a tiny bone chip in her left hock. The vet felt that it would heal quickly on its own. She is doing fine and doesn't even have a noticeable limp now. Fuse is a cute, tiny, red female that raced at 53lbs. She just turned 3 on May 9th. Her sire is WW's Dog Gone and her dam is WW Electric Eye. She passed her cat and small dog tests easily and has been living with small dogs that she likes very much. Fuse is used to being around children because her trainer has several kids that help in the kennel with the dogs ages 5 - 12. She is a sweet, calm girl that seems little unsure of her new surroundings at first and just wants to be near her family. Fuse has been in an adoptive home since March but they are making the difficult decision to re-home her due to their busy work schedule and traveling required for work. They feel that Fuse would do better with a family that had more time to spend with her and other medium to large sized dogs that she can play with. She tries hard to get their small dogs to play with her but they just aren't interested. Fuse is a tiny, sweet girl that is very cat, small dog and kid tolerant, we know she will be snapped up fast.

Kern just arrived from a dog farm in Florida. She actually retired from racing in July of 2016 after a successful career of 151 races. She raced at Palm Beach, Flagler, Mardi Gras, and Naples Ft Myers. She did get up to the top A level for part of her career. After she retired she went back to the farm to wait on an adoption group to take her and has been there for a year. She got her front leg stuck under a fence recently and suffered a terrible break, photos of her X-ray are in her other photos. Pro Greyhound is an organization funded by your donations that takes in greyhounds with injuries, gets them the surgeries they need and rehabs them. Pro Greyhound took her in, had one of their vets in Florida reconstruct Kern's leg and then drove from NC to Florida to get her after surgery. Her surgery cost $2000. If you would like to make a donation to help pay for her surgery and rehab please go to Pro Greyhound's Page.She is in NC now for her long recovery and probably won't be released for adoption until the end of August. Kern's sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is Atascocita Bonny. Kern raced at 57lbs and will turn 5 on August 17th. More as we get to know her.

Princess just arrived from a kennel closing at the Orlando Race Track. She also raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. Princess raced 29 races and only won two of those, so retired pretty quickly. She is a 60lb brindle female that will turn 3 on December 10th. Her sire is Dragon Fire and her dam is Super C Ashley. Princess seems like a happy friendly girl that loves everyone she meets. She is too interested in cats and small dogs that look like squirrels or bunnies to be able to live with them but she gets along well with medium and larger sized dogs. Princess is very friendly with kids when she meets them, but does growl sometimes over her space when laying down or sleeping. We think she would do better in a home with no kids that would trip over her or bother her when she is laying down. She would be an excellent girl for an adult only family. She is waggy and happy and will try to lay on your lap to get attention. A very sweet girl that loves people and attention. She is fully vetted and ready to go home.

Go Go just arrived from a kennel closing at the Orlando Race Track. She also raced at the Palm Beach Race Track where she got up to the top A level briefly. Go Go raced 92 races and was pretty good. She is a 60lb, light brindle female that turned 3 on February 2nd. Her sire is Rhythmless and her dam is HI Noon G Thang. Go Go traveled well and walked right into her crate, laid down and was quiet in her crate. She seems like a calm, friendly, well behaved girl. Go Go is very waggy for a greyhound, so much so, that she sometimes wags along with her tail. Go Go passed her cat test without much interest in the cat. She didn't pay much attention to the small dog she met either. She is being fostered with cats and small kids in and has been very good with both. Go Go seems like a super sweet, happy go lucky girl. She loves to snuggle with her humans.

Christy just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. She raced 50 races there but it took her 18 before she ever won one race. She eventually won one more race but mainly just placed. She just turned 3 on July 7th. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is WWW Mia Hamm. Christy did not pass her cat test. She was very interested at first but did eventually decide to leave the cat alone after he smacked her a few times. We know most cats aren't as confident around big dogs as our tester, so we think that she would do best in a home with no cats. She did fine with the small white dog she met though and showed no interest in him at all other than a casual sniff or two. Christy is a happy greyhound, her tail wags all the time, she is very outgoing. She loves everyone she meets and seem comfortable in every situation. She jumped in the van and laid down. Nothing seems to phase her. Christy seems like she would be an excellent meet and greet dog since she is so social. She has the energy and confidence to enjoy dog sports like agility, rally or lure coursing. Christy does need some work on leash because she is so eager to check out everything and bounces around happily. This girl has a lot of personality and is going to be so much fun. We had problems getting pictures of her because she just couldn't stand still and wanted to go see everything. She has calmed down in her foster home and has been a very sweet good girl.
