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.

Pistol just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. She is young and never raced. She got tattoos at 3 months old but never completed the registration process and got a registered racing name. She has been called Pistol though. Pistol will turn 2 in November. She has been a little overwhelmed by everything new since this is her first time leaving the farm. Her owner says she is normally very outgoing and with a little time to warm up will be the star of the show and is likely to be almost annoyingly friendly. Pistol is very used to being around small dogs, cats and other animals on the farm she was raised on. She has been completely comfortable with the cats and small dogs she has been around since she arrived too. She has been very quiet in her kennel and kennels well, so may be a good apartment or townhouse dog. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Available for adoption

Emery just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel. She was in the last load from the now closed Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced her whole career of 76 races there except for one race at Dubuque. She raced mainly at the lower C level but did get up as far as B a couple of times. Emery raced at 61lbs and turned 3 on Feb 1st. Her sire is Barcelona Boss and her dam is XKT Minnie Beets. Emery is a happy outgoing girl. Emery was very interested in the cat and excited by fast movements, but she did back off when the cat hissed and smacked her. She would probably be best in a home with no cats, although she may be cat trainable in a very experienced home with a confident cat. She did not like being alone in the kennel and cried a lot after the other dogs left, so may do best in a home with another dog to hang out with. She has been really good with some of the small dogs in her foster home but there is one that she has been wanting to play with. She may do better with medium sized dogs and larger that would be OK to play with a dog her size, since a really small toy-sized dog may get hurt accidentally. Emery is used to being around her trainers children at the race track so should be fine with kids.
