Upstate

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

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.

Serena is arriving soon from Australia. She raced 41 races there, won 8 of those and placed in the money often. Her last race was August 7, 2021 and she has been living with her owner since then. SHe raced at Moree, Coonamble, Tamworth, Bathurst, Gunnedah, Maitland, and Muswellbrook. We didn't get a weight for her but her DOB is May 28th 2018. Her sire is Brad Hill Billy and her dam is Karinya Connie. Her left ear is tattooed NHCTZ. Here is the description from her owner:

Serena is a gorgeous, happy girl who can’t wait to find her forever home. She is a dog who has not had a lot of opportunities to socialise, however you would never be able to tell by how friendly and confident she is! Whether Serena is exploring a new environment or meeting a stranger, she is incredibly calm, happy, and confident. She loves to have a sniff around, investigating and exploring her surroundings, getting a full picture of what’s going on. Equally, she loves to meet new people (all potential new friends). She’ll come bounding over, tail wagging and tongue lolling ready to be your new best friend for life! Serena has mostly interacted with other Greyhounds, however she has also met with a small dog. Despite her lack of experience, the pair got along extremely well and after a sniff and hello, she was happy to disengage and be on her way again- an absolute lady! Serena is a beautiful dog with a loving, friendly energy that is hard to match. She just can’t wait to find her forever home, so if you think Serena could be the love of your life, don’t hesitate to scoop her up!

Lenny is arriving soon from Australia. Lenny never raced there so never received a racing name. He is still young and won't turn 3 until July 13th. He is a medium sized male at 73lbs. His left ear is tattooed with NKEGJ. We don't have any information yet on who his sire and dam are. This is the description from his owner:

Lenny is a happy, social dog and just the life and soul of the party! He is a very active guy who just lives to play, make friends, and just have fun! Lenny is a young guy and still a pup at heart really. He likes to bounce around, getting the lay of the land and making sure he didn’t miss anything that he could have played with! Lenny can be a little strong on the lead, but overall, very good. He is very confident and doesn’t shy away from new experiences; be it meeting new people or exploring new environments! He has no issues with strangers, just a potential new friend to him! He’ll confidently approach with a wagging tail to let you know that he’s looking for some TLC or some playtime! Lenny is equally as good in new environments. He’ll sniff around exploring, holding his own little investigations! Lenny is a wonderful dog and would be a great addition to a lot of homes, however his activity level means that he would be best suited in a home with an active person/people who can take him on adventures and help him get his steps in! If you’re looking for a happy, fun, dog who could be a lifelong adventure buddy, you’ve found the perfect match in Lenny!

Brandy is arriving soon from Australia. He raced 35 races there but only managed to win one. He raced at Dubbo, Bathurst, and Gunnedah. His last race was November 26th of 2022. He has been living with his owner since then. Brandy is 75lbs and his DOB is Nov. 30 2019. His sire is Brad Hill Billy and his dam is Uniting Cargo. His left ear is tattooed with NIFDR. Here is his description from his owner:

Brandy is a boy already well on his way to becoming the perfect family pet. Underneath his gorgeous exterior, he also has a beautiful, soft-natured personality to match! Brandy is a lovely dog. He is incredibly human social and just loves to make friends whenever he gets the chance! In particular, Brandy loves children. He has lived with young kids ages 5-7 as well as teenagers and was great with them all! Brandy has mostly socialised with other Greyhounds, however he has been introduced to smaller breeds too. He was recently introduced to some Cavoodles, however he was a little anxious of them and avoided them when he could. Surprisingly, Brandy has also interacted with cats and doesn’t worry about them at all. He’s a bit of an enigma but overall, any introductions with cats or dogs should be done gradually and under the recommended guidelines to make sure everyone leaves with their tails wagging! Brandy is a clean and quiet boy in his kennels. You’ll only hear from him if there is someone else around and he wants to make sure you know about it too! He is a lovely calm dog, but he is also quite playful. More than anything, Brandy loves to dip his toes in water whenever he gets the chance. Brandy is a wonderful dog and overall, just a great friend. He is sweet, playful, clean, and calm- you’ll wonder how you ever lived without him!

Joanna Nadine
Racing Name:
Joanna Nadine
Pet/Kennel Name:
Jojo
Age:
Almost 5
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Kirk Family of Durham NC

JoJo initially came to us as an 8 month old pup straight from a farm in Arkansas. She was the runt of the litter and only weighed 47lbs when we got her. They decided she was too small to race, so sent her to us to place in an adoptive home instead. She actually ended up growing up to be a normal smallish sized female greyhound probably weighing between 55 and 60lbs. Her new family picked out the name Joanna Nadine and called her Jojo since she was never registered and never got a racing name. Jo Jo was with the Chatham family of NC since 3/24/20 and is nearly 5 now.  She was returned to us because her mom had some physical problems and couldn't care for her and her housemate Skye. Even as a puppy, Jojo would approach everything new to sniff, rather than shying away. Now she has blossomed into a wonderfully friendly, happy, girl that is fun and bouncy. Jojo is curious about everything and will be busy checking out everything. She gives kisses freely to new people and is very outgoing. She also gets along well with other dogs, but sometimes gets corrected by other dogs because she is so friendly and can come in a little strong. She did live with a small dog briefly too. She has had mixed results with cats in her foster home. When they run she wants to join in the game and give chase, but doesn't bother the cats the rest of the time. Because she is so playful, she would probably do better in a home with no kitties. Although she is not registered, she does have tattoos. Her right tattoo is 59C but her left tattoo is hard to read 73658. The last 2 numbers are really faint. Her birthday is 5/27/19 and her sire is Superior Panama and her dam is AMF Slammed Shut. Jojo has not lived with kids, but she seemed to like them when introduced. Be sure to look at her other photos to see some cute ones of her as a puppy. Jojo was in another adoptive home for a little over a month, but they didn't have a fenced yard. She was resistant to going potty on leash, even after being walked outside for extended periods. Jojo seems to like to walk around and find the perfect place to go potty on her own. A fenced yard is required for Jojo.
