IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: If you are in our adoption area, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home.

Special Adoption! Bonded Pair! 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 was returned with her housemate Delilah who is also available for adoption. The two girls are very bonded and constantly lean on each other and lay together, so we would love it if we could find a special home that wants two girls. Rebel crates very quietly. Her foster home describes her as a true couch potato. She even lays down when she eats. She was pretty timid and overwhelmed when she got to her new foster home but has gotten very comfortable there in a short time. The girls are both really sweet and already well behaved so should make easy additions to a home. Because she is the more shy of the two girls, Rebel relies on Delilah. The pictures when she first arrived show the dark muzzle she used to have. The lighter muzzle photos are her new pictures.

WW's Hey Delilah
Racing Name:
WW's Hey Delilah
Pet/Kennel Name:
Delilah
Age:
7
Color/Gender:
Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Special Adoption! Bonded Pair! 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 made Delilah 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. She has the tiniest face and nose and is so cute. 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 was great with the cats in a foster home and stayed a distance from them and wouldn't even get close. 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 prefer a home with just one or two quiet kids or no kids. Delilah is a curious, friendly girl. She didn't seem stressed at all by the earlier move from the track, but she was pretty stressed and upset, missing her family when she arrived back in foster care for the second time. She acted timid and overwhelmed in her foster home at first, but has completely relaxed now and is very comfortable now. Delilah was returned with her housemate Rebel and they are very bonded, leaning on each other and laying together. We would love to find them a special home where they can stay together. Both girls are loving and sweet and will come right up for love. They are well behaved and should make an easy addition to your home. Delilah is the more confident of the two and Rebel seems to rely on her but Delilah constantly checks in on Rebel and seems just as attached to her.

Centex Spitfire
Racing Name:
Centex Spitfire
Pet/Kennel Name:
Valkyrie
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Red Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Garofolo, Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: In Process to the Smith family, 2.5.21

Valkyrie initially came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2020 and was called Spitfire then. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas, Orange Park in Florida and Tri-State in WV. She raced 77 races, mainly at the lower levels. She kept moving to different tracks, in hopes that they could find somewhere that she would be competitive. When she stayed at the lowest level after the last three moves, she was retired. Valkyrie is really sweet and friendly and just stares up into your eyes. She is pretty energetic and bouncy. According to her track trainer, she really loved treats and would do anything to get one. Her adoptive family says she can be a picky eater though, and only wants to eat Proplan Shredded Chicken. Valkyrie is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. She has cute ears that go straight up when she is curious about something and a cute curly tail. She turned 4 on November 24th. Her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is Asteria Drive. Spitfire seems like a very sweet girl and didn't seem to be terribly stressed by her initial move from the track or when she came back from her first adopters. Her family described her as being a more high strung girl that can stress, pant and pace in new situations. One quirky thing we have notices is that she doesn't want to go into a new crate. She sets her feet and raises her head as high as possible so she won't fit through the doorway. Once in the crate, she lays down and goes to sleep pretty fast. When she was at the vet's office she was very interested in the cats she saw, so they didn't think she would be OK with cats. After she actually sniffed our cat and it slapped her, she completely changed her mind and wouldn't go anywhere near our cats again. She seemed pretty traumatized by the one light slap the cat gave her. Spitfire has been in an adoptive home for about a year but is being re-homed with her housemate Thor because of a divorce. She is already home acclimated so should be an easy addition. Although her adoptive family didn't have small kids they said she has always been great with the kids she has been around. She was retested with cats and small dogs when we got her back and she was good with both.

KB's Sharko
Racing Name:
KB's Sharko
Pet/Kennel Name:
Thor
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Herman (Anderson, SC)
Adoption Status: In Process to the Herman family of Anderson SC, 1.21.21

Thor initially came in from the Orange Park Race Course in Jacksonville FL last year, at that time he was called Sharky but his first owners renamed him. He also raced at Gulf, Dubuque and Southland tracks so is quite the traveler. Although he raced 55 races, he was never very good, and only won 3 races. Thor mainly raced at the lowest D level. He is the most laid back, relaxed dog ever according to his foster dad. Nothing phases him and he just goes with the flow. Very sweet guy! Thor turned 3 on June 12th and is a big guy racing at 80lbs. His sire is Gigawatt and his dam is TB's Flo Rita. Thor was adopted in September of 2020 but his family has asked us for help re-homing him and his housemate Valkyrie due to a divorce. His former family did not have a fenced yard, so he should be fine going potty on leash in another home. He is already home acclimated and should be an easy addition. His family did not have any kids but says he likes kids and was great with the small children he was around when with them. His former family did not own small dogs or cats so he hasn't lived with either but he passed his test with both at the track before he arrived. His current foster family is planning to adopt him but has reported a lot of interest in their cats. They are hoping with some training and time he will get better.

She only raced 25 races but was good, going straight up to A level at Derby Lane in Florida. She was bumped in her last race on October 7th of 2016 and pulled up. She has been back at the farm since then. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Bumble Rumble. Katie raced at 68lbs and will turn 7 on February 16th. She passed her initial cat test, but has showed increase interest in the cats in her foster home as she has gotten more comfortable, so may need a home with no kitties. More as we get to know her.
