Available Hounds

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, and Augusta GA.

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. 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.

Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:

Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Johnson (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Fernandos came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and Mardi Gras. He raced 180 races at 75lbs. He was pretty good and did get up to the top A level. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Auntie Anne. Fernandos turned 5 on May the 14th. He has the most beautiful, shiny, black coat and cute ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. One of his littermates took a bite out of one of his ears when they were puppies, so he is missing the very tip of one ear. Fernandos passed his initial cat test easily with no interest, but he just never was able to get used to just 1 of the 7 cats in his first home, so if placed with cats he would need a home with a confident cat. He is one of the greyhound grinners that smiles when he is happy or excited. We would prefer not to place him with small kids because he can be grumpy about his space when he is laying down. Fernandos not the most confident boy although he pretends to be. With confident people leading the walks he is relaxed and leans against your leg if something makes him nervous. He can be protective and nervous if other dogs come too close on walks. He is very friendly and is a leaner that leans in to give the famous greyhound hug. Fernandos is used to having his teeth brushed every day and likes it. He is very very good and quiet in his kennel. The only time he is loud is when he hears the siren of an emergency vehicle, then he sings along and when you first come home because he is excited to see you. He is a very good singer that does a very sad sounding rooooooo. Fernandos walks great on leash. He is a very laid back, well behaved guy in the house and doesn't do much running or playing in the fenced yard so doesn't require one.

Beast
Age:
5
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville
Adoption Status: In Process to the Gutter family of Felton PA

Beast is a tall, handsome, 79lb, brindle male with a white chest and feet that was originally adopted directly from a Derby Lane racing kennel in Florida. Because of a change in their living arrangements, his adoptive owners have asked us for assistance finding him a new home. Beast also raced at the Southland Track in Arkansas briefly. He raced 103 races and got up to the top A level. His last race was October 5th of 2015 and he has been in an adoptive home since then. Beast turned 5 on August 23rd. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Flying Havana. He is a friendly, confident guy that loves to go for rides in the car. He was living with small dogs in his previous home and in his current foster home and gets along great with them. He showed no interest in the cats at the vet's office. Beast crates wonderfully and quietly. His owner says he hasn't really been around children but he can be a little grumpy about being bothered when sleeping so we think he would do better with older kids that would understand not to bother him then. We got Beast neutered and gave him a fresh dental and heart worm test and got his vaccinations up to date so he is freshly vetted and ready to go home. He is a very sweet guy that hasn't seemed stressed at all by being rehomed. He is happy and has taken everything in stride. Seems like a very well behaved boy.

She does warm up and gets very excited to see her foster dad though. She seems to like the kids she has met but because she can be a bit timid probably wouldn't do well with very loud wild little kids or a lot of kids.

Bentley is a very sweet boy that is friendly and happy. He was around small kids from 2 to 10 at the race kennel so is used to being around them.
