Upstate

Greyhounds available in the Upstate SC area around Greenville and Greenwood SC.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS! Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the end of Florida greyhound racing in December, and the early closure of 3 more tracks during the pandemic, we have received far more applications than we can process in the coming months. The numbers of greyhounds available for adoption is falling quickly and will be nearly non existent by the end of this year. AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ADOPTERS!! If you have already submitted an application and received confirmation from our volunteers, you WILL be processed in the order of receipt IF we have greyhounds available. If you are already a GC adopter and in our system, please contact one of us or your adoption rep for help.

Friday is a return that we were asked to assist with rehoming. He was originally adopted through God's Greyts in Florida but is located in our area now. Friday is a 72lb male that raced 48 races at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He was good, getting up to the top A level right before they closed permanently back in March. He was adopted then and has been living in a home with a lot of cats since then. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is WhiskeyBodacious. His whole litter was named for different Whiskeys. Friday turned 3 on February 27th. He is an energetic dog that will be a fun guy for a lucky family. Friday doesn't appear to have had any potty training, manners training or leash training yet, so just needs a family that has enough experience with dogs to teach him the basics and show him how he is supposed to act in a home. Although he hasn't shown any sign of food, space or any other type of aggression with our foster home he did snap once, so we would prefer to place him in a home with no children. More as we get to know him.

Special Needs! Tad came in from the Blanchard Kennels at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She didn't actually race there though. She actually raced at Blanchard Kennels at Wheeling Downs in WV first, then was moved to their kennel at Tri-State in WV. Tad raced 103 races and did get up to the top AA level at Tr-State so was a good racer. She just turned 4 on May 25th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is NMS Sweet Thing and her dam is Boc's Posh Spice. Tad was a little shy and overwhelmed when she arrived but does warm up pretty fast and loves her people deeply. She passed her cat test with just some sniffing and would back away from the cat when it approached and rubbed on her. She lived in a home with a cat and was afraid of it. Tad came in with a note attached to her paperwork from her trainer: "Tad is very special, she's a little strange but awesome". Tad is special needs because she has pretty severe separation anxiety. She needs to be crated when left to keep her from being destructive and going potty in the house, but she is very loud in the crate and hates it. Since she is loud in the crate she definitely couldn't live in a townhouse or apartment. She needs to have blankets as padding in her crate rather than a dog bed, because she likes to unstuff dog beds when left alone. Although she passed her small dog test, she can be bossy with other dogs small and large so may do better as an only dog. Having another dog in the home to hang out with when left doesn't seem to help her separation anxiety. Tad has been returned a couple of times now due to her separation anxiety. She is looking for a quiet home that has people home most of the time that can spend time working with her and help her get over her separation anxiety. She can have tummy issues, but since retirement has been on a lamb based food. She has also been able to eat fish treats, beef, pasta, and milkbones. She was fed a mostly beef diet at the track. Tad has been living in a home without a fenced yard and does potty well on leash. She loves to run and play at the dog park, so would do great in a home with a fenced yard too. She loves to go for car rides and will jump right in the car on her own. She loves kids and seems drawn to them, but since she can be bossy with other dogs, we would prefer to place her in a home with no small kids.
