Cat just came in from the Birmingham AL race track. She also raced some of her 105 races at Daytona Beach and Orange Park in FL. Cat mainly raced at the mid B and C levels. She is a 64lb girl with striking coloring. She is mostly black with a white chest and a white collar that runs all the way around her neck. She also has a white blaze on her face and white front legs. The really interesting thing about her coloring is that she has black freckles in the white areas. She is really unusual and very cute. She turned 4 on December 15th. Her sire is Djays Octane and her dam is Thataway Cat. Cat was too interested in the cats and tiny dogs to pass either of those tests, but she seemed to do OK with medium sized and larger dogs. She is described as a very happy girl that loves to give hugs and is a greyhound that grins. She has a wonderful personality and will roll over for tummy rubs. Super sweet girl. She is very quiet and calm. She seems like she would be perfect as an apartment or townhouse dog.

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 there 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 that was scary or bad 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 cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Neo is a shy boy that was pretty overwhelmed when he first arrived and was pretty scared and nervous with all the changes he was experiencing being moved from a kennel into a home. He does like his crate and views it as a safe sanctuary where he goes when he is nervous. Neo has warmed up to his foster family though. After about a week he figured out that going up to someone and putting your head in their lap would get you petted. He will stand there now as long as you pet him. Neo is still jumpy with noises in his new environment. He likes to sleep on a dog bed next to his foster dad's bed, but will run back to his kennel if there are any scary sounds, such as someone dropping something. Neo seems like he loves people and petting and just needs a little time to get used to being in a home.

Kolat Family of Pickens SC
Adoption Status: In Process to Ramsey Family Savannah GA

Hooyah is an extra large red brindle male that just arrived 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 drivers shoulder a lot of the trip. Very sweet! 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 a little unsure of himself and timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes. He does do better with time though as he figures out he can do it and gets brave enough to try it. He is young and just needs to be exposed to new things. 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 has done great with the kids in his foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash and keeps his kennel clean.

Fostered by (location):
Erskine, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Laney just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. She raced 121 races there and got up to the top A level of racing so she was pretty good. She is a red fawn that raced at 62lbs. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is BNS Bea. Laney won't turn 4 until November 24th. She is a friendly, sweet girl that started to doze off leaning on us. She continued to lean across our lap snuggling even when we stopped petting her. Seems like a very social curious girl. Laney is very happy and friendly. She passed her cat test with just a few sniffs and stayed far away after one hiss from the cat. She did fine with a small dog she met too and seemed to like a toddler. Laney is a cute, red girl with ears that stand straight up when she is curious about something. She can be a little whiny in her kennel so probably wouldn't be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse.

Fostered by (location):
Crago, Inman SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Annie came in from the Orange Park Race Track with her sister Alice from the Clear Lake Racing Kennel. She raced 168 races there. Annie was a good racer and did get up to the top A level for part of her careers was a pretty good racer. Annie raced at 65lbs and turned 4 on December 17th. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is Calypso Amy. Some of our volunteers met Annie and her sister Alice on a recent trip to the track and asked if we could place them when they retired. They look like identical twins, both a very unusual shade of brindle that looks almost silvery gray with black stripes. Her sister Alice has already been adopted. When she was in for her spay, our vet found that Annie has some extra tissue inside her ears that can make them more prone to infections. It is nothing noticeable that anyone can see without looking deep into her ears. Because of that, she will need simple weekly ear cleanings by her owner. Annie passed her cat test so should be fine to live in a home with kitties. She also passed her small dog test and showed no prey drive towards small animals. She doesn't like other dogs to bother her when she is laying down though. She is being fostered with other dogs but we think she would do better in a home as an only dog. Even though she has never shown any issues with her space, with people, we would rather not place her in a home with little children who might fall on her or bother while she is laying down, just to be safe.

Special Needs - Cushings Disease! Larry came straight from the farm to us before he was even 2 without actually making it to the race track. He and his brother just didn't show much interest in racing. Larry is a very tiny guy at just 63lbs. His sire is Iceman Brutus and his dam is WJS Raina Jem.  Larry will turn 7 on Sept 19th. He has had some very bad luck and has been returned to our group twice. Larry came in with his brother Mo and was adopted with Mo by both previous owners. He was returned from his first home because he and his brother were barking at night. They were put out in an outbuilding at night and just wanted to be in the house with their family. Larry and Mo were adopted again and did fine together, unfortunately Mo passed away suddenly a in December of 2015 due to bloat. In mid 2016, Larry started acting stressed and losing weight. His owners believed he was stressed due to the loss of his brother. His family had some blood work run by their vet and found low thyroid so started him on that thyroid meds and Prozac for anxiety and sent him back to us to rehome, in hopes a home with another dog would help him. 

Larry was very very thin and didn't look healthy. Our vet did further testing on him and found that his actual problem was an adrenal problem called Cushings Disease that is caused by a tumor. He was started on medication for the Cushings and the prozac was stopped. The medication made a huge change in Larry, he started feeling and acting better and gaining weight right away. He has been on the medication for awhile now and our vet retested his levels and his blood work is perfect now!  Our group's bill for Larry is about $1000 so far. We welcome donations to help with his care. Click here to go to our donation page. Larry will have at least two medications that he will have to take the rest of his life. Those medications will cost our group or his adoptive family about $100 a month. We don't know how fast the tumor will grow, but Larry is likely to only be with us another year or two.

We are hopeful that we will find a very special adopter for Larry that will be able to afford his long term care. Other than his health issues, Larry, appears to be the perfect greyhound. He passed his cat and small dog tests and lived with both in previous homes. He would even snuggle on the bed with his cat buddy in his last home. His current foster home also has cats. Larry is a sweet, friendly, loving guy that can be silly but is very calm and perfectly behaved in his foster home. This tiny boy has the cutest little puppy face too! Larry potties nicely on leash and walks perfectly on leash, so doesn't require a home with a fenced yard, if his family is willing to leash walk him. Larry loves to snuggle and be as close to his humans as he can get. He does get worried by Thunderstorms. We were told that Larry couldn't be crated, but he has been fine being crated at his foster home within sight of other dogs. Larry seems to have bad dreams and will wake up crying sometimes, so appears to be a very sensitive guy.  A generous donor has offered to pay most of Larry's adoption fee for whoever adopts him. Another generous donor is paying for Larry's first year of medication.
