Charlotte, NC Area

Greyhounds available for adoption in the Charlotte NC Area.
 
 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: Please fill out the form below if you are in our adoption areas and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home. 

Greyhound Crossroads Adoption Requests


If you adopted from Greyhound Crossroads previously: Please check our available hounds page and contact your adoption rep or Jamie Elrod(below) to make arrangements to meet the dog you are interested in. 
 

 
KB's Sharko
Racing Name:
KB's Sharko
Pet/Kennel Name:
Thor
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Herman (Anderson, SC)
Adoption Status: In Process to the Herman family of Anderson SC, 1.21.21

Thor initially came in from the Orange Park Race Course in Jacksonville FL last year, at that time he was called Sharky but his first owners renamed him. He also raced at Gulf, Dubuque and Southland tracks so is quite the traveler. Although he raced 55 races, he was never very good, and only won 3 races. Thor mainly raced at the lowest D level. He is the most laid back, relaxed dog ever according to his foster dad. Nothing phases him and he just goes with the flow. Very sweet guy! Thor turned 3 on June 12th and is a big guy racing at 80lbs. His sire is Gigawatt and his dam is TB's Flo Rita. Thor was adopted in September of 2020 but his family has asked us for help re-homing him and his housemate Valkyrie due to a divorce. His former family did not have a fenced yard, so he should be fine going potty on leash in another home. He is already home acclimated and should be an easy addition. His family did not have any kids but says he likes kids and was great with the small children he was around when with them. His former family did not own small dogs or cats so he hasn't lived with either but he passed his test with both at the track before he arrived. His current foster family is planning to adopt him but has reported a lot of interest in their cats. They are hoping with some training and time he will get better.

Centex Spitfire
Racing Name:
Centex Spitfire
Pet/Kennel Name:
Valkyrie
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Red Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Garofolo, Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: In Process to the Smith family, 2.5.21

Valkyrie initially came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2020 and was called Spitfire then. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas, Orange Park in Florida and Tri-State in WV. She raced 77 races, mainly at the lower levels. She kept moving to different tracks, in hopes that they could find somewhere that she would be competitive. When she stayed at the lowest level after the last three moves, she was retired. Valkyrie is really sweet and friendly and just stares up into your eyes. She is pretty energetic and bouncy. According to her track trainer, she really loved treats and would do anything to get one. Her adoptive family says she can be a picky eater though, and only wants to eat Proplan Shredded Chicken. Valkyrie is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. She has cute ears that go straight up when she is curious about something and a cute curly tail. She turned 4 on November 24th. Her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is Asteria Drive. Spitfire seems like a very sweet girl and didn't seem to be terribly stressed by her initial move from the track or when she came back from her first adopters. Her family described her as being a more high strung girl that can stress, pant and pace in new situations. One quirky thing we have notices is that she doesn't want to go into a new crate. She sets her feet and raises her head as high as possible so she won't fit through the doorway. Once in the crate, she lays down and goes to sleep pretty fast. When she was at the vet's office she was very interested in the cats she saw, so they didn't think she would be OK with cats. After she actually sniffed our cat and it slapped her, she completely changed her mind and wouldn't go anywhere near our cats again. She seemed pretty traumatized by the one light slap the cat gave her. Spitfire has been in an adoptive home for about a year but is being re-homed with her housemate Thor because of a divorce. She is already home acclimated so should be an easy addition. Although her adoptive family didn't have small kids they said she has always been great with the kids she has been around. She was retested with cats and small dogs when we got her back and she was good with both.
