Washy is a red female that just came in from a farm in Arkansas. She was a fantastic racer racing 162 races at the top AA levels at both Southland and Wheeling. She also was in some stakes races. Washy retired from racing in July of 2016 and went back to the farm to become a mom. She had two puppies in 2016 AMF Keep Wishing and AMF You Wish who are already retired and placed in adoption groups. Those are the only two puppies registered so far but she may have other litters that are under two and not registered or racing yet. Washy is a tiny 55lb girl. She is calm and friendly. She crates very quietly and seems good on leash. She cooperated very nicely during her bath and leaned against her foster mom and rubbed her nose on her. She jumped right up into her crate in the van on the trip home. Washy's sire is Kiowa WW Brother and her dam is AMF Push. She will turn 8 on December 15th. She passed her cat test without much interest and also seemed fine with the small dog she met. She liked the kids she met too.

Fostered by (location):
Gardner, Myrtle Beach SC
Adoption Status: In Process

Lashes just arrived from a farm in Arkansas. She never raced due to a muscle injury as a puppy and has just been living on the farm up until now. The injury is long healed and she can run and play without any problem. She just wouldn't be fast enough to race with an old injury although she doesn't seem to limp and looks like she runs pretty fast. Lashes is a mostly white female with brindle spots. She was never given a registered racing name. We called her Lashes because she has a tiny spot of fur that grows out her lower lash line that looks like she is wearing a false eyelash. The vet clipped the hair off when she was under for her spay and it may need to be trimmed every so often as it grows out. The rest of her litter were registered and are now racing. They all have the prefix SJ's. Her sire is Starz Jenko and her dam is Go Home. Lashes was born on July 26th of 2017 so she just turned 2. She is an outgoing girl that loves everyone she meets. She is just a little overwhelmed so far with everything new but even while having her first bath, she snuggled and kissed her foster mom. This is a really sweet girl that showed no interest in the small white dog she met other than a casual sniff and even let him eat her food. Lashes was good with the cats she met too and seemed to be like the small children she met.

Adoption Status: In Process

This is a rare greyhound puppy! This is a very small brindle female that won't race due to being born with a deformed leg. We will have her checked to see if there is anything that can be done for the leg after she arrives. As it is, she has no idea that anything is wrong with her or her leg. It is all she has ever known, so she has adapted and runs and plays normally. She is a very happy, outgoing pup that has quite the personality according to her owner. She is only 11 weeks old so is small right now, about the size of a large cat,  but will be nearly adult sized in 6 months. Raising a greyhound pup is nothing like adopting a retired adult racer. They are hyper and can be very destructive. Imagine having a large breed puppy that can run 40 mph and needs to run and play most of the day. If their energy isn't drained in appropriate ways they will get into trouble. A large fenced yard is required for puppy adoptions. We recommend doggy daycare unless you have other dogs that will run and play with the puppy. Running and play is important to develop the strong bones and muscles they need to prevent injuries. Crating is important for potty training and when they aren't supervised to keep the puppy and your house safe. More as we get to know her.

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Miles just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track Kennel. He also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida. Miles has been promised to our group since he was a puppy. He was named for one of our volunteer's dogs that passed away. We first met Miles at around 8 months old at his farm in Texas and have followed him growing up through training and his career of 81 races. We have photos of him along the way and he even has his own Facebook page for his followers so he is pretty special. Miles will turn 4 on December 10th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Flirtatious. Miles is a smaller guy that raced at just 68lbs and is a stocky muscular guy, so is pretty short for that weight. He wasn't a great racer, mainly winning at the lower levels and only briefly getting up into the top A level one time. He was retired because he broke his outside back toe in his last race. Our vet amputated that toe and unless you count the toes you won't even notice one is missing. Miles definitely doesn't notice and has felt better since the problem toe came off. He is healed up and ready to go home now. Miles is a very outgoing guy that loves everyone he meets, kids and adults alike. He bounces happily to see you when you get home, but calms down nicely. He will stand next to you for petting for nearly as long as you will pet him. Although he is mostly quiet in his crate and crates really well, he sometimes makes some noise when he can see or hear people outside and wants to go see them. He potties nicely on walks and walks nicely on leash so wouldn't require a fenced yard. He gets along great with other dogs large and small and was living with an Italian Greyhound in his foster home and is exceptionally tolerant of the little guy. He is being fostered now with cats and is doing great with them too. Miles is a very sweet boy that loves people and is going to make a very loving pet. He is shiny and gorgeous.

Fuzzy just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She also raced at Dubuque and Naples Ft Myers. Fuzzy raced 131 races and won some. She competed in a couple of stakes races too. Fuzzy raced at 61lbs and will turn 4 on December 5th. Her sire is Boc's Blast Off and her dam is Superior Peace. Fuzzy is very happy and outgoing and loves attention. She loves other dogs of all sizes and gets playful and bouncy wanting to play with them. She passed her cat easily and wanted nothing to do with the cat after her first sniff led to a smack by the cat. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Fuzzy passed her test with small dogs as well, but because of her playfulness with other dogs really tiny dogs might get accidentally hurt. She would love a home with a medium or large dog though. Fuzzy crates nicely and loves belly and ear rubs. She is a real sweetheart!!!

Adoption Status: In Process to Halliwell Family

Templeton is from a litter that was all named for Charlotte's Web characters. Templeton was the very intelligent rat in the story. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until September 28th. His sire is Seldom Told and his dam is B My Erica. We met this litter of puppies a year ago, when they were small, on a trip to the Bolton Farm in Florida. Templeton never had an official race because he was just was not fast enough. He was pulled out of the one race he was supposed to race at the last minute. Several pictures of him and his litter as puppies is up at the Sanford Orlando Race Track, on the rail though. We have a photo of it in his pictures. We do have a few pictures of the litter from our trip to his farm last year. He was an excellent traveler on the trip back from Florida. Templeton seems pretty calm and quiet for such a young guy. He is a mid sized guy at 73lbs. Fearless and confident, he strolled right across the shiny hardwood floors without any trouble and the vacuum didn't phase him either. Templeton settled into his crate nicely and was quiet there too. He chatters his teeth when excited - some greyhounds do this and we think it is really cute. Templeton is a happy boy that comes running to see you with his tail wagging. Very sweet guy!

Kaage Evans, GA
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Gimpy just arrived with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Mator from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. Gimpy never actually had an official race at the track due to an old injury to her right front foot. It looks like she may have been stepped on by another dog or maybe she kicked something while running and damaged several toes. One toe had been partially amputated by a vet at some point, but because she was a pup, the bone continued to grow and was causing some pain. Our vet amputated more of the worst toe on June 13th and she is healed up and ready to go home now. She does still hold up the foot when standing and limps some and is likely to always do that. It really doesn't slow her down. She loves to run and play and doesn't worry too much about her foot. She loves going for walks and gets so excited to see the leash. Gimpy's sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. Gimpy is a tiny girl who weighed just 56lbs at the vet. She is young and turned 2 on April 4th. Gimpy passed her cat and small dog tests at the track. She was fostered with a cat in her first foster home and did fine with it. She doesn't seem to be stressed by much and was roaching (Sleeping on her back with her feet in the air which is the sign of a relaxed happy greyhound). Gimpy is doing great on hardwood floors. Although Gimpy absolutely loves kids, she gets excited and jumps sometimes, so might accidentally knock over a toddler. We think she would do fine in a home with slightly older kids. She is friendly and goes right up to everyone for attention and seems like she is going to be a very loving pet and companion.

Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Frymire (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Available for adoption

Envoy is just arriving from trainer AJ Grant in Sanford Orlando. His last race was actually at Derby Lane in September and he also raced at Dubuque earlier. He was moved to Orlando in hopes he would be competitive there,  but but never had an official race at that track. He won a couple of races early on, but usually came in toward the back of the pack so the decision was made to retire him after 20 races. Envoy is a young black male that won't turn 2 until November 25th. He weighted 68lbs at the vet so is a smaller guy but he could gain a few pounds still. His sire is Flying Titanium and his dam is Flying Cesium. Envoy is an energetic guy that still is very young and puppyish. He would love to have kids or other dogs to play with. He will need some training on good house manners since he is still a goofy, curious pup. He is very friendly and did great at large greyhound event with lots of people and dogs around. He walked politely around and loved all the attention he got. Envoy did not pass his cat test so needs a home without kitties.   Update!  Envoy is being returned to GC through no fault of his own.  This gorgeous fella is ready to start looking for his new family as soon as he gets a quick check with our vet on Monday.
