Willy initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track where he raced 122 races. He was pretty good and got up to the top A level briefly. Willy is a an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs and got up to 93lbs as a pet. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Sweetsouthern. He turned 6 on December 24th. Willy is a very friendly, happy, confident guy.  He is the rare greyhound that is actually a watch dog and will protect his yard and house and will bark at intruders which is a desireable thing in some homes. Willy was living in a home with kids in a large neighborhood with visitors coming in and out of the house frequently and unannounced so it wasn't a good situation for him. He was in that home since April of 2015 so he is already home acclimated. Willy loves to go out on walks and for drives and is very friendly with everyone he meets off of his own property. He is only protective of his own house and yard. Willy was living in a home as an only dog and is fine with that. Although he adores walks, he is more comfortable pottying in a fenced yard and should be adopted by a family who has a safely fenced area that he can use rather than expecting him to eliminate on leash every day. Willy is a great guy with a fun, playful personality. He loves to lay on the couch with his owner with his head in his lap and is very loving. Although Willy is friendly to kids and adults of all ages outside his home, we think he should be in an adult only home that doesn't have guests over often and is willing to crate or keep Willy in another room if they do have company. We can recommend further training to do to help Willy stop the home guarding behavior, but would like to place him in a home that will work for him even if he never completely gets over the behavior. Willy was adopted a second time 6 weeks ago and has been returned to us again because he had some accidents in their home and tore up something when not supervised. Willy lost 30lbs in that amount of time and had a swollen infected leg, so he was on temporary vet hold until he gained weight and his leg got better. Willy gained most of his weight back quickly with proper feeding and his leg is healed. Our vet has cleared him for adoption. He has done great in his foster home living with a couple of small dogs and other greyhounds. She says he is an awesome dog and has show no sign of any protective behavior with her and only ever had one accident in her house. She has supervised him carefully but she has seen no destructive behavior.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Larry/Largo
Age:
6
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: On Vet Hold until Feb 20th

Special Needs - Cushings Disease! Larry came straight from the farm to us at a very young age without actually making it to the race track. He is a very tiny guy at just 63lbs. His sire is Iceman Brutus and his dam is WJS Raina Jem. Larry had his name changed to Largo about 2 years ago, but his name was Larry for 4 years before that, so he knows both. 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 2014 due to bloat and several other auto immune problems. About 6 months ago Larry started acting odd 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 and Prozac for anxiety and sent him back to us to rehome in hopes a home with another dog would help him.

After a month in a foster home with other dogs, there was no change in Larry. He still was still very very thin and didn't look healthy. Our vet did further testing on him and found that his actual problem all along had been an adrenal problem called Cushings Disease. He is being started on medication for that, but will need to be retested after being on the medication for a month before we know if the dose is right and is working. His next round of testing will be around Feb 20th, so he is on vet hold at least until then. Our group's bill for Larry will be at least $1000 if this treatment is successful. We welcome donations to help with his care. Click here to go to our donation page. If this treatment is successful, 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. This disease is likely to shorten Larry's life span by a year or two too.

Larry is a wonderful little boy so we have to give him the best chance possible, even if he spends the rest of his life in his foster home. We are hopeful that we will find a special adopter for him that will be able to afford his long term care. Larry passed his cat tests and small dog tests and lived with both in previous homes. He would snuggle on the bed with his cat buddy in his last home. Larry is a sweet, friendly, loving guy that is silly and fun. This tiny, sweet boy has the cutest little puppy face! 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. He is calm, but does get happy and bounces a bit when you come home. His foster family has never seen him run around, probably because he just hasn't felt good in a long time. He loves to snuggle and be as close to his humans as he can get.  Larry does get worried by Thunderstorms and we were told that he 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 frequently for no apparent reason, so appears to be a very sensitive guy. We are hoping for a good outcome with Larry but treating this disease is not always successful. A generous donor has given us a donation to pay for part of Larry's adoption fee since he is a special needs dog.

Pet/Kennel Name:

Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Riker Clemson SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Verruckt initially came in from the Goodman Kennel at Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced at 73lbs, and is a happy, friendly, brindle male. He raced 60 races and traveled around a lot. He raced at Southland in Arkansas, then went to Naples Ft Myers track in Florida, then to Dubuque in Iowa, then back to Orlando Florida. He won some races but never got up to the stop A level at any of those tracks. In spite of that, he was put into a top level Stakes race. Verruckt turned 3 on August 13th. His sire is Boc's Blast Off and his dam is L's Sociabull. Verruckt passed his cat and small dog test so should be able to live with either. He is a sweet, calm boy that has been very well behaved in his foster home. Verruckt potties well on leash so may do OK without a fenced yard if his family is willing to leash walk him. He has done fine on steps too. Verruckt whined a bit the first night but was quiet in his kennel after that. Nice boy that has been living in an apartment. Verruckt loves children and loves to play in the yard with the kids in his foster home. Verruckt is a happy young guy that is very friendly. He was in an adoptive home for a couple of months, but was returned due to a job loss. When we got Verruckt back from his adoptive home he only weighed 60lbs so was significantly underweight and is much thinner than his healthy photos below. Our vet checked him over and says he checked out OK and just needs fed more. His foster home says he is eating great and is gaining the weight back already. This is a great guy that is already home acclimated.

Papas Boy
Racing Name:
Papas Boy
Pet/Kennel Name:
Jarrod
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng in Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Special Needs - Very Shy! Jarrod came in from the adoption kennel at the race track in Jacksonville. He was there for a few weeks and wasn't doing well because he is very shy. They asked us if we could take him into one of our foster homes to get him home acclimated.  Jarrod never was interested in racing so never had an official race. He is a small guy that weighs about 68lbs and turned 2 on October 13th. His sire is Offthebrakedrake and his dam is Shorty's Nana. He passed his cat and small dog tests and is living with cats in his foster home. Jarrod is a genetically shy boy that is afraid of new people, new things and fast movements. It is his personality and not the result of anything bad happening to him. We occasionally see dogs like him that seem to have something similar to an anxiety disorder and are afraid of everything. He will need a family with a lot of patience that can wait for him to warm up to them, it may take months or a year before a shy dog like him gets really comfortable in a home. He is probably always going to want to be a homebody and going out in public and travel is probably going to be too overwhelming, so his family will need to be understanding of that. We have him listed as older children only because the fast movements and loud noises that children make will be very frightening to him. Like most shy dogs, Jarrod would probably do best in a home with another more confident dog to hang out with. Even after over a month in foster care, Jarrod is just getting to the point that his foster mom can sometimes reach out and pet him without him ducking away. He won't approach her unless she is kneeling or squatting down. He will sneak up to sniff her when her back is turned though so does seem to want to interact but just isn't brave enough. He plays with toys and will play bow and bark and run around when his foster mom play bows back at him. He is choosing to stay in the room with his foster mom now rather than going back to his crate or hiding in another room. He is very good in the house and hasn't had an accident in the house. He goes to the back door when he needs to go outside. He does get loud in the crate sometimes, so he won't be a good apartment dog. He is a gorgeous brindle boy with very unusual golden eyes. So handsome! It is very rewarding to work with an exceptionally shy dog like Jarrod. When he finally comes around and decides to trust his new family it will be a beautiful thing, but it will take a lot of patience on the part of his new family. He is an exceptionally timid boy.

Tree came in from the Melbourne, FL race track. He only raced 2 of his 104 races there and mainly raced at the Palm Beach Track. Tree got up to B level and won quite a few races. He raced at 75lbs and won't turn 4 until September 12th. Tree's sire is the famous Loxahatchee Dash and his mom is the famous Flying Cleburne. Tree is a very happy, friendly boy that wags a lot. He is very excited to see his people and anyone else. No shyness here, he seems to love everyone and is definitely a people dog. He does pretty good on leash after a little initial excitement. Tree passed his cat and small dog tests easily and lived around 2 cats for a few days and was very respectful of them. He loves playing with toys.  Tree is vocal and did some barking at first in his kennel, so probably wouldn't be the best choice for an apartment dog. This is a handsome guy that has a lot of personality and he will be a fun dog for a very lucky family.

Age:
8.5
Color/Gender:
White and Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McPike Greenville SC
Adoption Status: On Vet Hold/ In Process to Garcia, 2.4.17

Topper just arrived in pretty bad shape. He is a tall, white boy with a couple of black spots on his face. The rest of him is white. He was registered to race but never actually had an official race so must have been adopted initially when he was around 2 years old. So it is likely he has been in a home for at least 6.5 years. We were able to identify him by his ear tattoos to get his racing name and he did have a tag on that said his call name was Topper. Since he doesn't have an official racing weight we don't know exactly what he should weigh but he is horribly thin now. We guess he should be a big boy around 80lbs. Topper is tall for a male with a big head and extra long nose with a cute overbite. From what we can gather he was relinquished by his owners because they couldn't take care of him anymore. The person they gave him to, tied him out in their yard for at least a week according to their neighbors. That family turned him over to us when we asked for him. When Topper arrived he was very underweight, had lots of fleas, itchy skin and toenails that hadn't been trimmed in a very long time. He is on a short vet hold while we work on getting some weight back on him. Our vet checked him over and feels he is healthy in spite of being 15 to 20lbs underweight. He is heartworm negative and was free of worms on his fecal. He was neutered already, but will get a fresh dental before getting adopted. Topper did not pay any attention to the cats at the vet clinic and seemed OK with a small white dog in his first foster home too. He goes right up to kids when he sees them too and seems to like them. He rides well in the car and crates well. He has only made a little noise in his kennel. He did great at the vet's office and calmly did everything asked of him and didn't seem to mind being handled. He seems like a very calm, sweet boy. He is still weak from starvation so we expect him to gain some energy as he feels better. He does growl at other dogs over his food, which is understandable with a dog that has been starving. Topper turned 8 on July 24th so  that qualifies him for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Arville.

Zen just arrived from Waverider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. He raced 17 races all at Derby Lane but usually finished toward the back of the pack. He raced his last race in October and was moved to Daytona Beach but ended up not racing any more races there. He is a beautiful, shiny black male that raced at 77lbs. His sire is Dragon Fire and his dam is Kiowa Dance. He is still young and just turned 2 on December 13th. Zen seems pretty calm and well behaved for such a young dog. He has been around kids, ages 5 - 12, in his kennel. They often help their mom out in the kennel. Zen still needs tested with cats but he did great with the small white dog in his foster home. He is a very friendly boy that just wants to stand near you so you can pet him. He is very sweet. He does pull on leash some to check out all the new things so his foster mom is working on that. He does potty well on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard if his owners are willing to leash walk him. Zen has been pretty quiet in his crate so far so he may be a good choice for an apartment dog. He is a gorgeous guy!

An X-ray found a tiny bone chip in her left hock. The vet felt that it would heal quickly on its own. She is doing fine and doesn't even have a noticeable limp now. Fuse is a cute, tiny, red female that raced at 53lbs. She will turn 3 on May 9th. Her sire is WW's Dog Gone and her dam is WW Electric Eye. She passed her cat and small dog tests and is used to being around children because her trainer has several kids that help in the kennel with the dogs ages 5 - 12. She is a sweet, calm girl that seems little unsure of her new surroundings and just wants to be near you. More as we get to know her.

7up's whole litter had call names chosen for them as puppies that were soft drink names. She just arrived from the Waverider Kennel in Daytona Beach, where she raced most of her 171 races. 7up also raced briefly at Sarasota. She is a beautiful, shiny, black female that will turn 5 on April 29th. She has a little white on her face. 7up is a actually a small girl that only weighs 62lbs because she is very muscular for her height. She was good with her trainers kids ages 5-12 that help out in the kennel. She was a little interested in the cat at first but seemed to be trainable once she realized what it was. 7up is a happy, sweet girl that responds well to correction if she does anything wrong. She is very friendly and waggy and seems to like to go for rides and walks. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Go Bon Bugaboo. 7up is doing good with the small dog in her foster home. She is very talkative and has a full range of interesting sounds, some we have never heard before. Because she does make noise she probably won't be a good choice for an apartment. She does potty on leash very well so doesn't require a fenced yard if her family is willing to leash walk her.

Roar just arrived 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. He was retired then because he had one seizure in the kennel. It is the only one they know about and he hasn't had another one since the one at the beginning of December. So we are hopeful that it is a one time thing and our vets don't think he should be medicated unless he starts having more of them. Roar is a friendly, little guy that raced at 66lbs. He travels well and seems pretty calm and very sweet. So far he is kenneling well and being a good boy. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Lee Judy. He will turn 3 on June 26th.
