Upstate

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

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

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.

Road Runner initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track in Summer of 2017. He is an XL red male that never actually had an official race. He just didn't do well enough in race schooling. He weighs 88lbs and is a big, happy, bouncy guy that has a wonderful, outgoing personality. Road Runner turned 6 on October 1st. He has been in an adoptive home since October of 2017, but they have one toddler and another baby on the way and just don't have time to spend with him. Road Runner's sire is Dyna Nalin and his dam is Time Release and yes he does have a brother named Wile E Coyote. This cute guy passed his cat and small dog test easily. When the cat ran, he did show some interest, but wouldn't actually get near the cat even then. He appeared to already understand that cats have claws. He lived with small Italian Greyhounds in his foster home and loves them. He tries to get them to play with him. He likes toddlers and babies and everyone he has met. He is a very joyful guy and everything makes him happy. He would be an excellent dog for someone that wants a very social dog they can take anywhere. He loves other dogs and tries to get everyone he meets to play with him by offering a play bow. Road Runner is definitely going to be a fun guy for a lucky family. He travels very well. Even as a young dog he was pretty calm and well behaved. His foster home loves having him as a guest because of his happy, silly personality. Road Runner was returned to us earlier after being in an adoptive home for just over a month, again a return that was not due to anything he did. Road Runner's original foster home has decided that they will keep him this time. They loved him and had a hard time letting him go the first two times he was adopted. They have decided that this time he is home forever.
