Adoption Status: Adopted by the Miller family of Charlotte NC 5/20/17

Gracie came in from a greyhound puppy farm. She was the result of an accidental breeding so she can't be registered to race and was never tattooed. We aren't sure who her parents were and the rest of the puppy litter has already been placed in adoptive homes. This cute girl is very tiny, at just 29lbs when she arrived. She should be bigger than this at this age so she is either younger than we think, or is the runt of the litter and likely to stay tiny. A tiny adult female greyhound usually weighs 50 - 55lbs, so she has a lot of growing to do to catch up. She is only about knee high right now and perches on the arm of a sofa comfortably. She is a friendly, sweet girl that seems very social. She is a puppy so is likely to be much higher energy than the typical adult greyhound. Greyhound puppies need large fenced yards and can run and play for hours. Like all puppies they need constant supervision while they learn house rules and learn how to be a good dog. Once they learn it they are likely to still need supervision and frequent reminders because they forget the rules quickly. Greyhound puppies are like any other breed of puppy and are not the easy laid back dogs that adult greyhounds become. For those that have a lot of time and patience, puppies can be a lot of fun, but they can be very challenging.

Adoption Status: On Vet hold/ In Process to the Shingler Family of Greenwood SC

Ozaki came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track. He was a good racer and also raced at Dubuque and was a finalist in the 2016 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Race. He only raced 36 races though. He broke his leg at the end of December. His racing owner had an expensive surgery done to fix the leg then. He has been rehabbing at the track since then. He still had swelling and infection in the leg when he arrived, so we had a biopsy done on his leg to find out what was going on. It turns out he had an infection that was resistant to common antibiotics, and we had to change his treatment to daily antibiotic injections. He has been at the vet since he came in. His bone appears healed and he puts weight on the leg, so we are hoping that this new treatment gets the swelling and oozing to stop and that he will make a full recovery.  His trainer says he is a very nice dog with a great personality and he was one of his favorites in the kennel. The staff that has been working with him at the clinic agrees and one of them has fallen in love with him and wants to adopt him when he is released from vet care. Ozaki is a big guy that raced at 79lbs and probably weighs more than that now. His sire is the very famous SH Avatar and his dam is Money Maid. Ozaki turns 3 on June 11th. Ozaki seems like a sensitive guy that was a little stressed about the haul and everything new. We think he may be on the dramatic side. When we were loading him in the van he had to be lifted in, then wouldn't put his legs down. We had to slide him in on his side on the dog beds. That one step up just made him literally freeze. He was OK a second later, up on his feet sniffing around. Sweet, goofy, guy!

Buffy never raced. She is a very young girl that won't turn 2 until October 29th. She broke her leg on the farm before she got to the track. She had surgery to repair her leg on April 26th.

Buffy is expected to make a full recovery and be able to run around and play normally. Pro Greyhound is a 501C3 organization that pays for surgeries of injured greyhounds with fundraising. If you would like to make a donation towards Buffy's care here is their contact information. Buffy's sire is Jax Manny and her dam is Jax Ginger. Buffy is a sweet, friendly girl that is handling her vetting really well. She is playful and very happy. More as we get to know her.
