Robbie just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track. He raced 71 races there and did get up to the top A level briefly. His last race was Feb 5th. Robbie raced at 77lbs and will turn 3 on July 22nd. He is the son of WW All Star Owen that we adopted out recently and his dam is Kentucky Ashley. Robbie passed his cat test so should be fine to live with cats or suitable smaller dogs. He is a white boy with brindle spots that is very very handsome and he knows it. Robbie is a very confident guy that thought he was the boss of the other boys he was turned out with at the track. Most of them just let him be the boss, but there was one that didn't see eye to eye with Robbie and they had to be watched closely. His trainer says he is a big strong, happy guy that is just like his dad, Owen. Robbie probably needs a home where he is the only male. A confident female that will keep him in line may be ideal. He backed right off when a female got after him for sniffing her too much during transport and was a complete gentleman.  Robbie was a little noisy in his crate when he first arrived and does pull pretty hard on leash. His foster mom is working on his leash skills and on teaching him the rules of living in a house. Robbie has been great with the other males in his foster home and we have seen no bossiness with anyone. He only had one accident in his foster home and has adapted really fast. So far he seems like a very nice well behaved boy. He isn't real food motivated and will lay in his crate looking at his food for awhile before deciding to eat it.

Yes

Fostered by (location):
Weisner (Spartanburg, SC)
Adoption Status: In Process to Nonnemacher family of Conway SC

Diamond just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a cute brindle girl that turned 3 on Feb 19th. She has 53 races listed and raced at 62lbs. She raced at Valley Race Track in Texas and Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando Tracks in Florida. She wasn't a good racer and only won one race that we could find. She did place just enough at the lowest level to keep racing for awhile, but gradually spent more and more time at the back of the pack, so was finally retired. She passed her cat test but we listed her as "trainable" because she was excited to see the cat at first. She was just curious though and is excited to check everything new out. She quickly lost interest. She is a happy, friendly girl with a tail that wags all the time. Sometimes she wags so hard that the tail nearly wags her. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Atascocita Vita. Her trainer says she is a very outgoing girl bouncy, fun girl that tends to be a bit more energetic than most. Really a sweet girl that likes everyone she meets so far.

Tea just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. She also raced at Derby Lane in St Pete. She briefly got up to the top A level, but mostly raced at the lower levels. Tea will turn 3 on July 19th. She raced at 62lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale and her dam is All Access Pass. Tea passed her cat test so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. According to her trainer, Tea is a bouncy, happy girl that is a little more active than the average greyhound. She has been pretty quiet and overwhelmed since she arrived so far. She was pretty timid with people and was uncomfortable with strange dogs sniffing her. By the end of the first day she was standing and letting us pet her rather than shying away, so we think she will warm up pretty fast. She is eating well and slept through the entire first night without a peep. Her trainer says she was a barker at feeding time and wasn't shy about telling her that she needed to be fed first. Her trainer also told us that she was an energetic happy fun girl at the kennel and we are already seeing that after just a few days.

Fostered by (location):
Wilkie (Anderson, SC)
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Buzz just arrived from Jade Feise at the Naples Ft Myers Race Track. He just raced 9 races there and only won one of those so was retired young. His last race was January 18th and he has been waiting in the kennel since then. Buzz just turned 2 on April 17th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is HS Texoma. Buzz has been very excitable around cats and very small dogs that look like bunnies so needs a home without them. He is a friendly happy guy that loves people. He likes playing in the yard so would love to have a fenced yard of his own. He is very food motivated so would be perfect for someone that wanted to train tricks, agility or do obedience with a dog. He doesn't get up on the furniture. He isn't fond of his crate and prefers to be out, but still needs to be crated when not supervised, because he is young and needs supervised while learning the house rules. Buzz believes that no toy should have stuffing in it and his mission in life is to unstuff every toy. Buzz is a sweet boy that has a lot of personality and will be a fun dog for a lucky family.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Fernandos
Age:
6
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable

Yes

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Fernandos came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track a little over a year ago. He also raced at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and Mardi Gras. He raced 180 races at 75lbs. He was a pretty good racer and did get up to the top A level. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and his dam is Auntie Anne. Fernandos turned 6 on May the 14th. He has the most beautiful, shiny, black coat and cute ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something. One of his littermates took a bite out of one of his ears when they were puppies, so he is missing the very tip of one ear. Fernandos passed his initial cat test easily with no interest, but he just never was able to get used to just 1 of the 7 cats in his first home, so if placed with cats he would need a home with a confident cat. Fernandos is one of the greyhound grinners that smiles when he is happy or excited. We would prefer not to place him with small kids because he can be grumpy about his space when he is laying down. Fernandos is not the most confident boy, although he pretends to be. Although he is fine with small dogs and other breeds once he meets them in a home situation, he can be nervous of other breeds approaching on walks and sometimes barks protectively. We worked on that before his last placement at the beginning of December and had him doing so well we could take him out in busy area of downtown without a single bark. Fernandos is very friendly and is a leaner that leans in to give the famous greyhound hug. Fernandos is used to having his teeth brushed every day and likes it. He is very good and mostly quiet in his kennel. The only time he is loud is when he hears the siren of an emergency vehicle, then he sings along. When you first come home he will roo because he is happy to see you. He is a very good singer that does a very sad sounding rooooooo. Fernandos walks great on leash normally and doesn't pull, especially since we worked with him on barking at other dogs on walks. He is a very laid back, well behaved guy in the house and doesn't do much running or playing in the fenced yard, so doesn't require one. Fernandos has been in several adoptive homes already and was returned once due to him being grumpy about his space when laying down and because he wanted to chase one of the 7 cats he lived with. He was returned again because he did not do well in an urban apartment with all the other dogs around on walks. We worked with him on that after he came back. He has been in a 3rd home since December and did very well there. They are having to rehome him due to a change in their housing situation.
