Day came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in Florida. She is a very tiny, black, girl that only weighs 51lbs! She just turned 2 on December 11th. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. She came in with her sister Night but they have been placed in different foster homes and are fine to be adopted out separately. Day won her very first race and raced 21 races. She never won another race though, so was retired young. She is a happy, friendly girl that is young and playful. She is described by her foster home as outgoing, gentle and affectionate. She sleeps in her crate at night and doesn't make a sound unless she needs to go outside. She does great on stairs and can get in and out of the car easily. She was too excited about the cat, so needs a home with no kitties. She is used to being around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12. She patiently stands and welcomes the neighborhood kids petting and attention with a wagging tail.  Day looks like she has been polished her coat is so shiny and her personality is just as shiny and bright. She has become really good on leash and doesn't pull, but does go from side to side to check things out. She loves attention from her humans. Day potties well on leash so may not need a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her. Whoever meets her is going to fall head over heals for this tiny, bundle of joy. Day is a wonderful sweet, loving girl that is about as perfect as she could be.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Neo
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Fawn Male

Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

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 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 scary 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 initial cat and small dog tests and lived with cats for a little while but made one mistake and chased a cat one time after he got more comfortable with them so he is in a foster home with cats now so we can evaluate him. Neo is a timid sensitive guy that can be a little shy at first and isn't very comfortable out in public. He prefers the comfort of his familiar environment. Although he considers his crate his safe place and retreats to it if he is scared of something, he does complain sometimes when he is in the crate at other times. So Neo probably would not be a good choice for an apartment. Neo has warmed up to his foster family and is very loving, playful, sweet and will stand beside you as long as you will pet him. His foster home says that after a few weeks he has turned into their shadow and follows them around everywhere. He loves to collect toys and stuffed animals but isn't destructive with them. He just collects them. Because Neo is timid and loud noises bother him, we think he would be nervous in a home with small, loud children that move fast. Older quieter children should be OK. Neo's confidence is growing and he now will walk up to strangers in his home in just a short amount of time for petting. He is still very timid outside his home and prefers to be a homebody.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Hooyah
Age:

Brindle Male

Ng in Columbia SC
Adoption Status: On Hold

Hooyah is an extra large red brindle male that came in 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 driver's shoulder a lot of the trip. 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 friendly with people but can be timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes for example. Most greyhounds do this and relax with time and eventually do OK on shiny floors but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after weeks of living in a house with shiny floors, he can't seem to get brave enough to do them. He is going to need a home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs so he doesn't have to walk on shiny floors. 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 loved the kids in his first foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash and keeps his kennel clean.

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. He didn't have any more seizures until an episode of multiple seizures on March 13th and 14th. Roar is currently on 2 seizure medications that have done a good job of controlling his seizures since then. Roar is a little guy that raced at just 66lbs. He is very calm and well behaved and completely vetted already. 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. He is excellent with other dogs too though. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Lee Judy. Roar will turn 3 on June 26th. He is a very good foster, 'perfect" according to his foster mom. The rare times Roar does anything he shouldn't, he responds well to gentle corrections. He is a very sweet, easy, gentle, guy that would be a great first or third 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. Roar just recently went on a beach trip with his foster mom. He did great traveling and enjoyed 2 mile beach walks with her. Roar is a wonderful, friendly, happy boy that couldn't be any sweeter! One of his littermates took the tip off of one of his ears when he was young. Roar does need midday meds, so needs an owner that can come home on their lunch break or a stay at home owner. This is a sweet loving guy that has been looking for a loving home since December of 2016 only because he is a seizure dog.
