Adoption Status: In Process to the Hollar family of Hickory NC

Lola just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced 149 races in her career. She also raced briefly at Dubuque and Mardi Gras race tracks. She raced a lot of the longer races and did get up to the top A level. Her sire is the famous Oshkosh Slammer and her dam is USS Time To Go. She came in with her sister Silver and her brother Maxwell. Although they did come in together and raced some at the same track they have all been apart racing at different tracks and will be fine being adopted out separately. Lola is a tiny, short girl that raced at 60lbs only because she is stocky. She is a gorgeous shiny black girl with flashy white chest and feet. Lola will turn 5 on July 20th. She passed her small dog test easily. She and her littermates have been around cats at some point because they all refused to get near the cat and turned their face away to avoid the claws if the cat came near them. Lola is the most timid of the litter. Although she approaches carefully with her head down low, she seems like she wants to be with people. She seems to warm up fast once she knows you and will lean in for affection. Fast motions can make her a little nervous, so we think living with loud, young kids would probably be too much for her. When she met some toddlers she turned her head away from them. She politely allowed them to pet her and didn't run away, but they did make her nervous. She can be pretty vocal in her crate so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Although she complains sometimes about being in her crate she seems to feel pretty safe there and often chooses to be in there.

Color/Gender:
Light Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Testing
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Doby, Salisbury NC
Adoption Status: On Vet Hold for broken leg Available for adoption

Delila came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She is a beautiful light fawn girl that raced at 61lbs. She turned 3 on August 12th. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Lee Juliet. She raced her entire career of 87 races for the Lester Raines Kennel. She got up to A level and even competed in and won a stakes race so she was a good racer. Nov 23rd she broke her leg. She had surgery with an orthopedic specialist in Jacksonville before coming up to our group. She has been having her splint changes and rehab in NC. It was a bad break and even though it is healing well she still needs more rehab so that she starts using the leg more. We hope she will be ready to be adopted at the end of February. Interested adopters can schedule meetings with her in the meantime. Delila is a happy, waggy girl that seems to like everyone she meets. She traveled very well and even did well overnight in a hotel during her trip. She walks nicely on leash. Delila was a favorite of her trainers kids. One of them would get in her kennel with her at the track and snuggle with her. So she seems like she is exceptionally good with children.

Color/Gender:
Black Male

Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Doby, Salisbury NC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Desoto came up from Eric Griffin's kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He raced most of his 145 races at the Caliente Track in Mexico so he may understand Spanish better than English. He also raced briefly at Wheeling Downs in WV and finally finished up his career at Orange Park. He did get up to the top A level briefly and competed in a Stakes Race. Desoto broke his leg in a race on November 11th. He had surgery to repair the leg at a specialist in Jacksonville before coming to us. After surgery he was moved to Charlotte for rehab and his splint changes. Desoto raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on July 21st. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Baby Bonnet. Desoto's leg is doing great and has healed up completely. He has just been released by our vet for adoption! He should be able to run and play normally. He is a very laid back guy and slept through most of his splint changes. He likes people and will allow you to do just about anything to him. His foster dad says he is a great guy that would make a great first or 4th greyhound. He gets along well with the different breeds of dogs in his foster home and is great in his crate. A very sweet loving boy with a great personality.
