Available Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS! Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the end of Florida greyhound racing in December, and the early closure of 3 more tracks during the pandemic, we have received far more applications than we can process in the coming months. The numbers of greyhounds available for adoption is falling quickly and will be nearly non existent by the end of this year. AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ADOPTERS!! We are only placing greyhounds with repeat adopters that are already approved and in our system. If you have already adopted from us please contact your adoption rep or one of us to be added to the waiting list.

Rebel isn't really very much of a rebel. She is actually just a bit timid at first and not a real confident girl. Rebel is tiny, racing at just 57lbs. She turned 7 on September 4th. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Brett Lee Queen. She only raced 26 races, all of them in Wheeling WV. She was a very good racer there getting up to the top AA level quickly. After winning and doing well, she suddenly started coming in at the back of the pack. When she stopped doing well at that track, she was moved to Sanford Orlando to race. They decided that she wasn't going to race well anymore after a few schooling races there and retired her. She ran her last official race June 11th of 2016, so has been retired for years. Rebel was adopted in August of 2016 and lived with a wonderful adoptive family until now. They made the difficult decision to re-home her because they foster special needs kids. Recently they added several children to their family for a total of 5 under the age of 8. Although Rebel was OK with kids at first, she has gotten very uncomfortable with the number of kids in the family now. She would prefer a quiet home with no small kids. Rebel has lived with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. She is being returned with her housemate Delilah who is also available for adoption. Rebel crated quietly. Her foster home describes her as a true couch potato. She even lays down when she eats. She is pretty timid and overwhelmed since she has come back to us so may need some time to warm up to a new family.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Delilah initially came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track where she raced 78 races. Her last race was June 1st of 2016 so she has been retired for years. She was adopted in October of 2016 and lived with a wonderful family until now. She is looking for a new home because her family fosters special needs children and were asked to take in some more kids. Although she was fine with a couple of kids, the 5 small kids in the home now are making sensitive Delilah nervous and very uncomfortable. Her family made the difficult decision to let her go to a home where she would be more comfortable. She is a tiny 52lbs light fawn female that turned 7 on June 14th. Her sire is WW's Dog Gone and her dam is WW's Hey Darla. Delilah passed her cat test easily so should be fine to live in a home with cats or small dogs. She has been great with the cats in her foster home and has stayed a distance from them and hasn't tried to even get close. She is a pretty calm little gal according to her trainer. She was around her trainers kids and around the kids in her adoptive home but does get stressed by a large number of kids around her. Delilah would need a home with just one or two quiet kids or no kids. Delilah was a curious, friendly girl when she first arrived from the track. She didn't seem stressed at all by the move from the track, but she has been pretty stressed and upset since she came back to us from her adoptive home. She is acting timid and completely overwhelmed in her foster home now. She will come over to her foster mom for love but may need some time to warm up to a new family. She is being returned with her housemate Rebel.

Bandit initially came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 80 races there. He raced at 71lbs so is a mid sized guy that will turn 3 on October 24th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is JS luck B A Lady. Bandit was a little overwhelmed the first day or two. He doesn't really seem like a shy guy, more of a sensitive guy. Bandit is a gorgeous, light fawn with a darker face. He is very curious about everything and isn't afraid to check things out on walks and goes right up to people. Bandit was adopted in December of 2019 by a family with small kids and other dogs. He did great there until they recently moved to a farm. He just can't resist chasing chickens and their other outside livestock. So they made the difficult decision to rehome Bandit. He just needs a home without chickens or livestock that he may be tempted to chase. Bandit has lived with cats and is OK with adult cats that stand up for themselves. He is too excitable around a small kitten that runs and plays though so would need a home with confident adult cats only. Bandit has always been great with the small kids in his home and their friends. He is fine with the other dogs of other breeds and sizes in his home too.  Bandit is already home acclimated and ready to be an incredible pet.

Adoption Status: In Process for the Thorpe family, 11.20.20

Kat came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. Her racing owner is one of our group's volunteers and she asked us to help her place Kat. Her owner recently broke her back and can't bring in a new dog into her home right now. Kat was not a good racer. Out of her 66 races she only won one race and came in 2nd in one. Kat raced at 66lbs and is very young. She turns 2 on November 15th. Kat is definitely not a Devil Kat and is a really timid shy girl that is very overwhelmed by being in a home for the first time and being away from her littermates and trainer at the track. She is going to take a bit to warm up to a new environment and people she doesn't know. Her new family will need to be patient with her as she warms up. She needs a quiet home and they should expect her to take a few weeks to warm up to them, if not longer. Her foster thinks she would do best with experienced greyhound owners that have worked with shy dogs before. Kat passed her small dog tests and did fine with the kids she met, but if placed with children she would need to be around calm, quiet, kids only because noisy toys and running and yelling would definitely scare her. Kat is a gorgeous fawn girl with golden eyes and lots of dark eyeliner. Just gorgeous!

Gift just arrived from the Roban farm in Florida with her littermate Cinnamon. She went back to the farm to be a mom after her racing career was over. She had one litter of 4 pups in October of 2018 that has just started their race career at the Wheeling Track in WV. Gift raced 50 races, starting her career at Orange Park, then Sarasota, Ebro, back to Sarasota and finally Sanford Orlando. Her last race was May 5th of 2017. She wasn't a very good racer, but some of her litter were superstars, including one brother who is now a stud dog. So Gift ended up being chosen to carry on the bloodline too. Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is Raiders Chia. Gift raced at 64lbs and turned 6 on March 3rd. More as we get to know her.

Cinnamon just arrived from the Roban Farm in FL. She is a littermate to Precious Gift that arrived at the same time. Cinnamon raced 76 races at Orange Park, Flagler and Naples Ft Myers in Florida. She retired from Naples on April 22nd 2017. She wasn't a very good racer, racing most of her career at the lower D Level. Some of her littermates were superstars at the track, so when Cinnamon retired from racing, she went back to the farm to be a mom. They didn't end up actually breeding her due to racing ending in Florida at the end of this year. So she has just been living at the farm for a few years and is being sent to us to find an adoptive home now. Cinnamon raced at 68lbs and turned 6 on March 3. Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is Raiders Chia. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Friday is a return that we were asked to assist with rehoming. He was originally adopted through God's Greyts in Florida but is located in our area now. Friday is a 72lb male that raced 48 races at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He was good, getting up to the top A level right before they closed permanently back in March. He was adopted then and has been living in a home with a lot of cats since then. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is WhiskeyBodacious. His whole litter was named for different Whiskeys. Friday turned 3 on February 27th. He is an energetic dog that will be a fun guy for a lucky family. Friday doesn't appear to have had any potty training, manners training or leash training yet, so just needs a family that has enough experience with dogs to teach him the basics and show him how he is supposed to act in a home. Although he hasn't shown any sign of food, space or any other type of aggression with our foster home, his previous owner said he did snap once, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no children. More as we get to know him.

Day just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. She was vetted before coming to us by the track adoption kennels vet. Day raced 115 races starting out her career at Southland in Arkansas. From there she moved to Orlando and was a top A level racer there until they closed. Then she was moved to Orange Park to finish her career. She started slowing down but did manage to win her very last race at D level. Day is a sweet girl that is very quiet and calm. She might be OK to live in an apartment because she is so quiet and good in her kennel. Day has been a little overwhelmed with everything new since she has arrived. She eats well and seems very food motivated. She was intimidated and a little afraid of the cat she met and has been great with the small white dog in her foster home. Day just turned 4 on October 12th. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is Under The Stars. Day is definitely a little shy at first but is starting to warm up after a few days in her foster home.

Adoption Status: In Process to the Dalton Family of Anderson SC

Eraser just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. She only raced 22 races there. She got up to the top A level fast but then lost interest in racing and came in last in her last 6 races. So she was retired young. Eraser just turned 2 on August 8th and raced at 60lbs. She has been in a home with a small white Italian Greyhound and showed no interest in chasing him. She does mistake some tiny furry dogs for bunnies at a distance, so needs a careful intro. Once she is able to sniff and realizes they are actually dogs she seems to be OK. Eraser is a very happy friendly girl. She seems pretty confident and unphased by all the changes in her life. She crates calmly and quietly but is playful and fun in short spurts. A really nice personality. She seems to get along very well with other dogs too. Eraser was picked out by one of our families on a recent track trip so is not available for adoption at this time.

Pops just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He only won one of his 7 races there and finished last or near the back the rest of the time. He was retired young and won't turn 2 until March 26th. Pop weighs 83lbs so he is an extra large male. His sire is the very famous Flying Hydrogen and his dam is Braska Star. He has just been vetted at our vets in the Augusta area. Pop's foster mom says he is very chill and very loving. He passed his cat test at the track and showed no interest in the cats at the vets office either. He should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. He gets along with the greyhounds in his foster home and has had no accidents in the house so far. He doesn't like stairs but can do the 3 coming into the house. He is quiet so could be an apartment dog if the apartment was on the ground floor. Even though he is a big guy, he is very good on leash and doesn't pull. He hasn't tried to get on the furniture in his foster home and has been very well behaved. He likes to be near people and will follow from room to room. Pops is very cute with big Groucho Marx black eyebrows.
