Special Needs - Cushings Disease! Larry came straight from the farm to us before he was even 2 without actually making it to the race track. He and his brother just didn't show much interest in racing. Larry is a very tiny guy at just 63lbs. His sire is Iceman Brutus and his dam is WJS Raina Jem.  Larry will turn 7 on Sept 19th. He has had some very bad luck and has been returned to our group twice. Larry came in with his brother Mo and was adopted with Mo by both previous owners. He was returned from his first home because he and his brother were barking at night. They were put out in an outbuilding at night and just wanted to be in the house with their family. Larry and Mo were adopted again and did fine together, unfortunately Mo passed away suddenly a in December of 2015 due to bloat. In mid 2016, Larry started acting stressed and losing weight. His owners believed he was stressed due to the loss of his brother. His family had some blood work run by their vet and found low thyroid so started him on that thyroid meds and Prozac for anxiety and sent him back to us to rehome, in hopes a home with another dog would help him. 

Larry was very very thin and didn't look healthy. Our vet did further testing on him and found that his actual problem was an adrenal problem called Cushings Disease that is caused by a tumor. He was started on medication for the Cushings and the prozac was stopped. The medication made a huge change in Larry, he started feeling and acting better and gaining weight right away. He has been on the medication for awhile now and our vet retested his levels and his blood work is perfect now!  Our group's bill for Larry is about $1000 so far. We welcome donations to help with his care. Click here to go to our donation page. Larry will have at least two medications that he will have to take the rest of his life. Those medications will cost our group or his adoptive family about $100 a month. We don't know how fast the tumor will grow, but Larry is likely to only be with us another year or two.

We are hopeful that we will find a very special adopter for Larry that will be able to afford his long term care. Other than his health issues, Larry, appears to be the perfect greyhound. He passed his cat and small dog tests and lived with both in previous homes. He would even snuggle on the bed with his cat buddy in his last home. His current foster home also has cats. Larry is a sweet, friendly, loving guy that can be silly but is very calm and perfectly behaved in his foster home. This tiny boy has the cutest little puppy face too! Larry potties nicely on leash and walks perfectly on leash, so doesn't require a home with a fenced yard, if his family is willing to leash walk him. Larry loves to snuggle and be as close to his humans as he can get. He does get worried by Thunderstorms. We were told that Larry couldn't be crated, but he has been fine being crated at his foster home within sight of other dogs. Larry seems to have bad dreams and will wake up crying sometimes, so appears to be a very sensitive guy.  A generous donor has offered to pay most of Larry's adoption fee for whoever adopts him. Another generous donor is paying for Larry's first year of medication.

Fostered by (location):
Doby in Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: On Vet Hold until mid April/ In Process for Ailes family, 3.27.17

Coco came in from the Jacksonville FL Orange Park Race Track. She broke her leg in her last race on Jan 18th. She had surgery to repair it funded by Pro Greyhound, a group that funds surgical repairs and rehab of retired racers through your donations. If you would like to donate see their page here. She will be staying with Carl of Pro Greyhound for her rehabilitation and recovery. Coco raced 121 races, some at Gulf Greyhound Park in Texas before moving to Florida. She raced at 61lbs and will turn 4 on Feb 6th. Her sire is Look My Way and her dam is Poor White Dog. It will take about 12 weeks for her to heal up completely so we expect her to released by our vets for adoption sometime in mid April. Coco is pretty friendly and likes people, but isn't a social butterfly. She she is perfectly happy to stand back and let others get the attention. She is calm and sweet. She does complain some when crated so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog, although she is quiet when out of the kennel. She passed her cat and small dog test so should be fine to live with either.

Special Needs - Seizures! Roar came in from the Orange Park Race Track Adoption Kennel in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 53 races there. Roar wasn't a great racer, racing mainly in the C and D levels but he did win his last race on Dec 3rd of 2016. He was retired then because he had a seizure in the kennel. We were hopeful that the seizure was a one time thing but it was not. On March 13th, Roar began having seizures again, one after another minutes apart for nearly 24 hours. It took 3 seizure medications to get them to stop. He has had a few seizures since and our vets are working on getting his medication correct. The goal is to find the lowest dose that will keep him seizure free so he doesn't act too drugged. He will always have to be on seizure medications though. Roar will be exceptionally calm and laid back due to his medications. Roar is a friendly, little guy that raced at 66lbs. He travels well and is super sweet. Roar kennels well and loves his crate and would be an excellent only dog because he has no problem with being left alone in his kennel according to his foster mom's video monitor. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Lee Judy. He will turn 3 on June 26th. Roar is a very good foster, 'perfect" according to his foster mom. At first he wouldn't lay on the dog beds in his foster home and liked to go back in his crate to sleep. They moved the crate and put a dog bed in its place and he went and laid on it right way. Location is everything. The rare times Roar does anything he shouldn't, he responds well to gentle corrections. He responds well to his name and seems like a very sweet, easy, guy that would be a great first or 4th greyhound. He gets along great with all the dogs he has met so far. He also passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either.

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

No

Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Crago, Inman 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 careers was a pretty good racer. 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 look like identical twins, both a very unusual shade of brindle that looks almost silvery gray with black stripes. Her sister Alice has already been adopted. When she was in for her spay, our vet found that Annie has some extra tissue inside her ears that can make them more prone to infections. It is nothing noticeable that anyone can see without looking deep into her ears. Because of that, she will need simple weekly ear cleanings by her owner. Annie passed her cat test so should be fine to live in a home with kitties. She also passed her small dog test and showed no prey drive towards small animals. She doesn't like other dogs to bother her when she is laying down though. She is being fostered with other dogs but we think she would do better in a home as an only dog. Even though she has never shown any issues with her space, with people, we would rather not place her in a home with little children who might fall on her or bother while she is laying down, just to be safe.

Adoption Status: In Process to Gooding-Mellor Family of Fountain Inn SC

Barney just arrived from North Shore Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He is just a young guy and just turned 2 on January 28th. Barney never officially raced because he broke a front leg in a training accident. His leg was fixed and rehabbed at the track and the vet cleared him to be transported to us for adoption. Barney can be a little shy at first with people he doesn't know, but he gets over it very quickly. He is very quiet but he loves to run around in the yard then go back to his crate. His favorite thing to play with are empty bottles and he will even fetch them and bring them back to you! He's a sweet boy and will stand there and let you pet him for as long as you're willing to. He loves being around other dogs but he would probably do just fine on his own, too. He's just wants to be loved by his people. Barney passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see some adorable pictures of him as a puppy. Barney's sire is Shonn and his dam is Kelso's Linda Ash. As you can see in his pictures Barney is food motivated. He has done well with the grandkids that visit his foster home.

Gem just arrived from North Shore Kennels at Palm Beach. She is a tiny girl that raced at just 53lbs. She only raced 17 races total and also raced briefly at Derby Lane. She didn't win one of her races and broke her hock in her last race on October 19th. Her leg was fixed and rehabbed at the track and the vet has cleared her for adoption now. The leg healed up great and she can play and run around with no problem. Her trainer describes her as "super sweet and friendly", and says she'll climb right up in your lap. She is definitely a snuggly girl that loves to be close. She's playful and probably would prefer a family that will keep her active or a playmate with a yard where she can run around. She's quiet and calm inside the kennel and house though and gets along with all the other dogs. She is a cute girl that has ears that stand straight up when she sees something she is interested in. Gem's sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Kiowa Lazy Jill. She is young and just turned 2 on Dec 11th. Gem passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She seems to like the grandchildren that visit her foster home.

Shale is a black female that just arrived from Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach FL race track. She raced at 62lbs and ran 116 races. She also raced at Naples-Ft Myers. She was mainly competitive at the lower racing levels. Shale just turned 3 on Feb 6th. Her sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is CJC's Equalizer. Shale is doing great with the grandchild of her foster mom and follows her around all the time. She is a friendly happy girl that is going to make a very loving pet. Shale passed her cat test with only a little initial interest. She corrected easily and lost interest so we think she should be trainable with some supervision at first. She passed her small dog test too.

Boss Hog just arrived from Brindle Kennel at Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He is a stunning, huge, muscular, red fawn, male that raced at 86lbs. He raced 67 races and also raced at Naples Ft Myers but never was very good. 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 guy that is curious about new things and very friendly. Boss Hog seems like a pretty confident outgoing guy. More as we get to know him.

Laney just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. She raced 121 races there and got up to the top A level of racing so she was pretty good. She is a red fawn that raced at 62lbs. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is BNS Bea. Laney won't turn 4 until November 24th. She is a friendly, sweet girl that started to doze off leaning on us. She continued to lean across our lap snuggling even when we stopped petting her. Seems like a very social curious girl. Laney is very happy and friendly. She passed her cat test with just a few sniffs and stayed far away after one hiss from the cat. She did fine with a small dog she met too and seemed to like a toddler. Laney is a cute, red girl with ears that stand straight up when she is curious about something. She can be a little whiny in her kennel so probably wouldn't be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse.

Moscato is a gorgeous, small black female that just arrived from Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. We love her name! She raced most of her races at Mardi Gras Race Track. She didn't win one race at either track so she was retired young. Moscato will turn 2 on April 14th. She is a tiny girl racing at 56lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale* and her dam is KL's Tara Ann. Moscato is a very friendly girl. She rode great on the trip and just laid down in the van most of the time. She would come up for affection every little bit and was calm until you spoke to her or petted her. Once she was getting attention, she would wiggle up against you and get so happy and excited. Very loving girl with the prettiest big brown eyes and a beautiful shiny black coat. Very cute and so happy! She is still pretty young and playful. She passed her cat test but did get excited and barked at the cat to start with. She never wanted to go near the cat though. When we made her go close to the cat and the cat hissed and spat at her she jumped back and barked, then she really wanted nothing to do with the cat. We think she will be trainable with a cat with supervision at first.  She seemed to like the toddler she met and went straight up to him wagging her tail.

Fostered by (location):
Kolat Family of Pickens SC
Adoption Status: In Process to Ramsey Family Savannah GA

Hooyah is an extra large red brindle male that just arrived 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 drivers shoulder a lot of the trip. Very sweet! 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 a little unsure of himself and timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes. He does do better with time though as he figures out he can do it and gets brave enough to try it. He is young and just needs to be exposed to new things. 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 has done great with the kids in his foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash and keeps his kennel clean.

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 there 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 that was scary or bad 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 cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Neo is a shy boy that was pretty overwhelmed when he first arrived and was pretty scared and nervous with all the changes he was experiencing being moved from a kennel into a home. He does like his crate and views it as a safe sanctuary where he goes when he is nervous. Neo has warmed up to his foster family though. After about a week he figured out that going up to someone and putting your head in their lap would get you petted. He will stand there now as long as you pet him. Neo is still jumpy with noises in his new environment. He likes to sleep on a dog bed next to his foster dad's bed, but will run back to his kennel if there are any scary sounds, such as someone dropping something. Neo seems like he loves people and petting and just needs a little time to get used to being in a home.

Cat just came in from the Birmingham AL race track. She also raced some of her 105 races at Daytona Beach and Orange Park in FL. Cat mainly raced at the mid B and C levels. She is a 64lb girl with striking coloring. She is mostly black with a white chest and a white collar that runs all the way around her neck. She also has a white blaze on her face and white front legs. The really interesting thing about her coloring is that she has black freckles in the white areas. She is really unusual and very cute. She turned 4 on December 15th. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is Thataway Cat. Cat was too interested in the cats and tiny dogs to pass either of those tests, but she seemed to do OK with medium sized and larger dogs. She is described as a very happy girl that loves to give hugs and is a greyhound that grins. She has a wonderful personality and will roll over for tummy rubs. Super sweet girl. She is very quiet and calm. She seems like she would be perfect as an apartment or townhouse dog.
