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.

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.

C Ville C Annie
Racing Name:

Pet/Kennel Name:
Annie
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
McCann Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Annie came in from the Orange Park Race Track with her sister Alice from the Clear Lake Racing Kennel. She raced 168 races there. Annie was a good racer and did get up to the top A level for part of her career. Annie raced at 65lbs and turned 4 on December 17th. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is Calypso Amy. Some of our volunteers met Annie and her sister Alice on a recent trip to the track and asked if we could place them when they retired. They had such stunning unusual dark brindle coloring with silver stripes instead of the usual orange stripes. Annie's sister Alice was adopted right away. When Annie came in she had an ear infection that needed treated, so that held up her placement initially. Her ears are healed and are fine now and Annie has been completely vetted and has been released by our vets for adoption. Annie is a sweet, friendly, confident girl that loves attention. She is very loving and happy. She is a very calm girl that is very well behaved and great on leash. She has excellent house manners too and has been in a foster home for longer than most, due to her initial ear infection. Annie passed her cat test so should be fine to live in a home with kitties. She also passed her small dog test and has been living with Italian Greyhounds and Greyhounds in her foster home. When Annie first arrived she was bossy at first with new dogs in her foster home, if they bothered her when she was laying down. Her foster mom worked with her and she has completely stopped that behavior now and is very good with her housemates large and small. Although she is normally a very confident, outgoing girl, Annie does seem stressed and uncomfortable around new dogs (especially dogs of other breeds that she has not been around before) at first. We feel she may do best as an only dog, although she does warm up to other dogs with time. Annie really liked every child she has met, but we think she would do best in a home with older kids only and no toddlers that might fall on her when she is sleeping. She has never shown any issues with her space with people or kids, but since she has with other dogs, we like err on the side of caution. This is a stunning girl with such unusually beautiful markings and coloring!

MB Boss Hog
Racing Name:
MB Boss Hog
Pet/Kennel Name:
Boss Hog
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Covard, Augusta GA
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Boss Hog came in from the Brindle Kennel at Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He is a stunning, huge, muscular, red fawn, male that raced at 86lbs. Boss Hog raced 67 races and also raced at Naples Ft Myers but never was a very good racer, maybe due to his size. He mainly placed at the lower D levels. Boss Hog turned 3 on February 16th. His sire is KC and All and his dam is Broomhilda Bones. Boss Hog is a waggy, stocky boy that looks like a big body builder. It isn't that he is that tall, but he is heavy because of all the muscles he has. He is a happy, playful, guy that is curious about new things and very friendly. Boss Hog is a very confident, outgoing guy. He has done fine with small dogs he has met and doesn't show prey drive towards them. He is an alpha male and can be bossy with other dogs - mainly when they bother him when he is laying down. So he needs placement with a family with more submissive dogs or no dogs. Boss Hog was initially a little interested in cats but quickly lost interest after a slap. We think he would be OK in a home with a cat that stood his ground with supervision at first. Because Boss has shown some issues with his space when laying down, we won't place him with small children that could fall on him or wouldn't understand the old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie." Boss Hog is a very happy, friendly guy that would do great with a confident owner. He kennels nicely and quietly. The only time he makes noise in his kennel is when his foster family first comes home and he gets excited to see them. His foster family quickly fell in love with his joyful personality and wanted to keep Boss Hog, but just aren't able to add another dog to their pack at this time.

Hooyah
Racing Name:
Hooyah
Pet/Kennel Name:
Hooyah
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Dyer, Gaffney SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Mouton Family of Hendersonville NC

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 and only won one of those and usually finished toward the back of the pack so he was retired young. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday on March 19th. Hooyah raced at 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. He seems like a pretty 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. While he was at the vet one of the clinic cats befriended him and curled up with him while he was coming out of his anesthesia so he appears to be fine with cats and small dogs too. Hooyah is friendly with people but can be timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes for example. Most greyhounds do this and relax with time and eventually do OK on shiny floors but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after weeks of living in a house with shiny floors, he can't seem to get brave enough to do them. He is going to need a home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs so he doesn't have to walk on shiny floors. Hooyah has an interesting brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side with more striping and more brindle on the other. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference. It almost looks like you are looking at a completely different dog from one side to the other. Hooyah loved the kids in his first foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash and keeps his kennel clean.

Slatex Neo

Slatex Neo
Pet/Kennel Name:
Neo
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Neo came in from the Birmingham Race Course adoption group. He didn't actually race there though and is a dog from Melbourne FL. He only raced 3 races and got bumped by another dog in his last race and just quit running. He is a timid, sensitive boy, so we can see how he could just quit running if something scary happened. Neo is a beautiful, fawn male that raced at 72lbs. He just turned 2 on February 6th. His sire is Yahoo Omar and his dam is Slatex Emerald. Neo passed his initial cat and small dog tests and has lived in two foster homes with cats now successfully. He also passed his small dog test. Although he is very loving and happy at home with people he knows, Neo can be shy at first. He prefers the comfort of his familiar home environment and gets stressed out in new places. Although he considers his crate his safe place and retreats to it if he is scared of something, he does complain sometimes when he doesn't want to be in the crate - like when his foster mom comes home from work. So Neo probably would not be a good choice for an apartment. Neo is very loving, playful, sweet and will stand beside you as long as you will pet him. His foster home says that after a few weeks he has turned into their shadow and follows them around everywhere. He loves to collect toys and stuffed animals but isn't destructive with them. He just collects them. Because Neo is timid and loud noises bother him, we think he would be nervous living in a home with small, loud children that move fast. Older quieter children should be OK. Neo's confidence is growing and he now will walk up to strangers in his home in just a short amount of time for petting. Neo is a gorgeous boy that has been waiting on home since March 20th just because he is shy.
