Marlo just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track but he also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV for a few races. He raced mainly at the lower levels mostly placing, but he did win 3 races. Marlo is a white boy with black spots that raced at 71lbs. He is a calm, friendly boy that was very well behaved at the track kennel. He is quiet in his kennel even when he is kenneled away from other dogs. The only time he makes any noise is when he is compelled to sing along to the sound of a fire truck or ambulance or needs to go outside. He is a very good singer that does a long sad rooo rooo rooo. He is used to being around his race trainer's children ages 5 to 12 and a small dog in his foster home and has been great with both. He had mixed results on his cat test however. He was very interested in the cat until it slapped him then he wouldn't get near it again. He did still stay pretty excited about watching the cat from a distance so we think he would do better in a home with no cats. Marlo's sire is WW's Enlighten and his dam is WW Famous Marise. We placed his littermate Persuader about a year ago.  He is very sweet and gives kisses. More as we get to know him.

Night just came in from the Daytona Race Track in Fl with her sister Day. She is a very tiny black female that raced at just 52lbs. She started racing at Derby Lane but only raced a few races there. Most of her 48 races were in Daytona. She only ever won 2 of those races so was retired young. She just turned 2 on December 11th. Day passed her cat test so should be able to live with cats and small dogs. She is used to being around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12 too. She is an active little girl that is very friendly and has never met a stranger. She is very happy and excitable so needs some work on leash because she is trying to check out everything at once. Night is a talker and will answer you with a cute little roo roo if you talk to her and get her excited. She is very confident and comfortable in any situation. She was relaxed and laying on her back with her feet in the air within 24 hours of being in a home the first time. She is being fostered with cats, small dogs and kids. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. More as we get to know this tiny girl.

Day just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track in Florida. She is a very tiny black girl that only weighs 51lbs. She just turned 2 on December 11th. Her sire is Bonafide Top Dog and her dam is RC Mystic Nugget. She is coming in with her sister Night. Day won her very first race and raced 21 races. She never won another race though so was retired young. She is a happy, friendly girl that is still young and playful. Very cute little girl that still needs some work on leash. She is excitable and curious and wants to check out everything at once on walks. She was too excited about the cat to pass her cat test, so needs a home with no kitties. She is used to being around the children of her racing trainer ages 5 to 12. More as we get to know her.

Bolton Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Sadie is a beautiful, shy, senior girl that is in search of a new home. She doesn't have any races listed and retired young. She was initially placed with her adopters by another group. Her family is having to move their mother in to take care of her and she is very allergic to their dogs. They are heartbroken to have to re-home Sadie, but there is nothing else they can do. Sadie has had wonderful care her entire life and is just genetically shy, nothing bad has happened to her. She has just seen the vet for updated shots and a checkup. She is healthy and will get a full dental too before she is adopted. Sadie turns 11 on July 7th so she qualifies for our senior discounted adoption price of $200. We actually placed several of her littermates: Iconic, CB's Crittah, and Babagnoosh. All of her siblings were shy too. Her sire, Dave the Dog, is still alive and lives nearby in Piedmont SC. Her dam is Greys Amber Bay. Sadie is a very well behaved girl according to her family. She attended an obedience class with them but was too nervous to take treats around the other dogs and people up until the last day of the class so didn't really learn a lot of commands. She may take a little while to warm up to her new family because she is so shy. She got along great with another male greyhound in her home and he helped her be more confident, unfortunately he has cancer and is not expected to live much longer. Amber's family is hoping to get her adopted by the end of April so she can go straight from their home into her permanent home rather than going into foster care. That is when they have to move their mom in. Sadie has been fantastic with a small child in the home but has never been around cats or small dogs.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Fawn Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Brian Jones in Pickens SC
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 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.  Some greyhounds, like Neo, are naturally timid and shy and aren't comfortable in social situations with a lot of new people. It is often hereditary and is seen in certain lines. Neo likes his crate and views it as a safe sanctuary, where he goes when he is nervous. Neo has warmed up to his foster family, although he is still very nervous and may shake if strangers come to the house. After about a week he decided he wanted petted and started putting his head in his foster family's laps to be petted. Neo will stand there now as long as you pet him. Neo is still jumpy with noises. 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 a new family and new surroundings. His foster home says that after a few weeks he has turned into their shadow and follows them around everywhere now. He loves to collect toys and stuffed animals but isn't destructive with them. Just collects them. Neo is a very sweet boy that will be a wonderful pet with a family that gives him time to warm up. Neo needs a family that understands that when they first meet him he will be scared and is unlikely to interact with them at all. It will take about a week or maybe longer for him to really want to be with people he doesn't know. He will warm up to you the same way he did to his foster family and his trainer before that. Because Neo is shy and loud noises bother him we think he would be nervous in a home with small loud children that would make a lot of noise and move fast, but older quieter children should be OK.

Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Moscato is a gorgeous, small black female that just arrived from Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in FL. We love her name! She raced most of her races at Mardi Gras Race Track. She didn't win one race at either track so she was retired young. Moscato just turned 2 on April 14th. She is a tiny girl racing at 56lbs. Her sire is Defrim Bale* and her dam is KL's Tara Ann. Moscato is a very friendly, happy girl. She travels great and just lays down for most of the trip. She does stairs really well and was fostered in a 3rd floor apartment for a little while. She loves to snuggle on the couch or bed with her family. Moscato is a very loving girl with the prettiest big brown eyes and a beautiful shiny black coat. Very cute and so happy! She loves to play with toys that squeak. Moscato passed her cat test but did get excited and barked at the cat to start with. She never wanted to go near the cat though. When we made her go close to the cat and the cat hissed and spat at her, she jumped back and barked, then she really wanted nothing to do with the cat. At the apartment complex she was in one of the outdoor cats would come up and rub on her and Moscato was fine with that. Moscato is really excited over squirrels and does respond poorly to very tiny kittens and dogs that look like squirrels. She is now being fostered in a home with a 15lb Italian Greyhound and has done well with that size and larger as long as they are introduced properly. Moscato does seem to like kids and went straight up to a toddler wagging her tail.

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Older Children Only
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.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Willy
Age:

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
No

No

No
Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Willy initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track where he raced 122 races. He was pretty good and got up to the top A level briefly. Willy is a an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Sweetsouthern. He just turned 6 on December 24th. Willy is a very friendly, happy, confident guy. He was in an adoptive home since April of 2015, so he is already home acclimated. He loves people and does great at our meet and greets going up to each person for love. He is the rare greyhound that will actually bark at intruders that try to come into his home and yard though so would be a great dog for someone that wanted a watch dog. He loves to go out on walks and for drives and is very friendly with everyone he meets off of his own property though. He adores going for walks and potties great on leash so would be fine for a family without a fenced yard. Willy is a great guy with a fun, playful personality in short bursts. He is calm and well behaved in the house though. He loves to lay on the couch with his owner with his head in his lap and loves to snuggle. Because he can be protective of his property, we think he would do best in a quiet, adult only home that doesn't have guests often. Willy has had some grumpiness over his space when laying down and that is another reason we have him listed as no children. He has done great in his foster home living with other greyhounds and two smallish to medium sized dogs but Willy can be bossy with other dogs. Medium to large housemates are OK if they are submissive and OK with another dog being the leader of the pack. Willy has lived in a home as an only dog so would be perfect for a one dog household too. His foster mom says he is a super sweet guy and is perfectly behaved, clean in the home with no accidents, and sleeps quietly both in his crate and all night long. Willy may be a good choice for apartment living too.  If you like big greyhounds, Willy could be your guy!
