DKC Bob
Racing Name:
DKC Bob
Pet/Kennel Name:
Bob/Darby
Age:
Almost 4
Color/Gender:
White Male with a Red Spot
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
No
Fostered by (location):
Mcmanis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Bob initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is nearly all white except for a red spot over one eye that looks a bit like an eyebrow. He is a very cute 69lb boy that raced only 30 races. He started out racing at Tri State in WV but didn't do well there so was moved to the Orlando Track. He only won 2 races so was retired. Bob will turn 4 on September 18th. His sire is Handball Victory and his dam is Snap A Heel. Bob is a happy boy that can be just bit timid in new situations at first. He passed his cat and small dog tests and lived with several cats in his previous home. Bob has been in an adoptive home since June of 2016 and has been called Darby since then so he should know both names. He was returned because he has shown some possessiveness over his space and toys. Otherwise he is a great guy with good house manners and is home acclimated. Because he is possessive with toys and his space Darby needs a home with no children and needs a confident, dog experience owner. Bob gets along great with all the dogs in his foster home so would be perfect in a home with other dogs, he doesn't seem like a dominant dog with other dogs and quickly fits into a pack with no problem. His foster dad has seen no sign of any of his previous behavior.

Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Owens in Greenwood, SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Princess just arrived from a kennel closing at the Orlando Race Track. She also raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. Princess raced 29 races and only won two of those, so retired pretty quickly. She is a 60lb brindle female that will turn 3 on December 10th. Her sire is Dragon Fire and her dam is Super C Ashley. Princess seems like a happy friendly girl that loves everyone she meets. She is too interested in cats and small dogs that look like squirrels or bunnies to be able to live with them but she gets along well with medium and larger sized dogs. Princess is very friendly with kids when she meets them, but does growl sometimes over her space when laying down or sleeping. We think she would do better in a home with no kids that would trip over her or bother her when she is laying down. She would be an excellent girl for an adult only family. She is waggy and happy and will try to lay on your lap to get attention. A very sweet girl that loves people and attention. She is fully vetted and ready to go home.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Christy
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Erskine, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Christy came in from the Birmingham Race Track. She raced 50 races there but it took her 18 before she won one race. She eventually won one more race but mainly just placed. She just turned 3 on July 7th. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is WWW Mia Hamm. Christy did not pass her cat test. She was very interested at first but did eventually decide to leave the cat alone after he smacked her a few times. We know most cats aren't as confident around big dogs as our tester, so we think that she would do best in a home with no cats. She did fine with the small white dog she met though and showed no interest in him at all other than a casual sniff or two. Christy is a happy greyhound, her tail wags all the time, she is very outgoing. She loves everyone she meets and seems comfortable in every situation. She jumped in the van and laid down for the trip. Nothing seems to phase her. Christy would be an excellent meet and greet dog because she is so social, she thrives on attention and will go up and greet everyone. She has the energy and confidence to enjoy dog sports like agility, lure coursing or just hiking with her family. Christy's foster mom has been working on her leash skills because she is so eager to check out everything. This girl has a lot of personality and has the most wonderful outgoing personality. Although she tends to be on the higher energy side for a greyhound she is calm and well behaved in her foster home.

Age:

Color/Gender:
White Male With Brindle Spots
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Johnson Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Manning just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel. He didn't actually ever race there though. He raced 35 races at Southland in Arkansas and at Flagler, Naples Ft. Myers and Palm Beach tracks in Florida. He only ever was able to win one race so was retired young. He is a big, tall, guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is KL's Muriel. He won't turn 3 until November 20th. Manning is a friendly guy that is really sweet. He was quiet in his crate after just a couple of reminders the first day but once in awhile he does get excited and makes a little noise - mainly when guests come over and he is in his crate. He walks great on a loose leash. He is a higher prey drive guy that isn't going to be able to live with cats. He is OK with small dogs indoors but gets too excited about them outside when they run around so probably would do best in a home with medium sized dogs or larger. He is being fostered with an 15lb Italian Greyhound, to help him get used to being around small dogs and he is doing great with him now. Manning is doing great in his foster home and would be a very easy first or 4th greyhound. He seems to get along well with other dogs and seems pretty calm for his age. Manning is a gentle giant.

Fostered by (location):
Currently at kennel in Iowa -transport can be arranged for adopter
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Loader is a special needs guy that we are advertising for a track adoption group in Iowa. He is a dominant guy that doesn't get along well with other dogs, so just needs to be placed as an only dog. Loader is very friendly and loving and is described as being "amazing with people". He is currently still in Iowa and transport from the track adoption kennel can be arranged for a suitable adopter. Loader is a handsome, confident, red male that weighs 76lbs. He turned 4 on April 14th. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Kiowa Neon Nanny. Loader is a velcro dog that loves to be by the side of people working in the kennel. He was a pretty good racer that raced 132 races at several tracks and won a lot of races. He started out at Bluffs Run in IA, then went to Naples Ft Myers in FL, then to Dubuque IA. From Dubuque he went back to Florida to the Mardi Gras Race Track but he didn't race well there so he was sent back to Dubuque again. So this guy has been quite the traveler. Loader did get up to the top A level while racing in Dubuque the first time. He retired on May 26th and has been at the track adoption kennel since then waiting on the right home. Loader didn't pass his cat test either so needs a home with no kitties. If you are only planning on having just one dog, please consider adopting Loader. He has been fully vetted, is healthy and has been waiting on a home for along time.

CTW Great Scott
Racing Name:
CTW Great Scott
Pet/Kennel Name:
Scotty
Age:
Almost 6
Color/Gender:
White male with Brindle Spots
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Bowden (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Scotty initially was adopted from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel 5 months ago. He had a long career of 214 races starting out in Birmingham, then moving to Wheeling WV and then back to Birmingham. He was the most successful racing in Birmingham, and raced a lot of his career there at the top A level. After he was adopted his family moved to Charlotte NC. Scotty was very friendly and confident in the kennel environment where he was comfortable with other greyhounds around. When he got home with his new family and was away from other greyhounds, he was terrified. He would stress almost constantly and never warmed up to them or their home unless a friend's greyhound came over. When another greyhound was around he was happy and acted normal. They hoped he would adjust and get better with time, but finally made the difficult decision to re-home Scotty so he could be in a home with another greyhound. Since Scotty has been in a foster home with other greyhounds his behavior is completely normal. He doesn't freak out about things and is a very calm, friendly guy with a waggy tail and happy disposition. Scotty seems like he is a sensitive guy that thrives on routine. He walks good on leash. He has lived with cats and seems fine with the small dogs he has met. He would be fine with visiting children, but we think living with fast moving and loud little kids is likely to make him nervous. He is a very sweet guy that just needs a home with other greyhounds where he can be comfortable. Scotty will turn 6 on September 14th. His sire is CTW Plaza Rio and his dam is Great Lee. Scotty is such a friendly, outgoing, happy, silly, guy when he is around other greyhounds. It is hard to imagine him as the shy, timid, fearful guy that his former family described.

Bebe has been around children from 5 to 13 in her racing kennel. The kids help their mom care for the dogs. More as we get to know her.
