William Masters came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He is an extra large guy that raced at 85lbs. He raced 50 races and started out his career at Southland in Arkansas. He wasn't very competitive there so was moved to Orlando. He only didn't do much better there, so he has been retired with only 2 wins in his career. William turns 3 on February 1st. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is MIstie Bass. William passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. He was friendly with the kids he met too. He is a pretty calm guy that was quiet in his kennel. He pulls some on leash but just at first when he is excited to go. Then he walks at your hip and likes to be touching you on the walk. William is a friendly guy that traveled well. He liked the kids he met too.

His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is L's Rovi. He seemed fine with the small dog he met and passed his cat test with just some curious sniffing. He liked the kids he met and is being fostered with kids. He is exceptionally friendly. His whole body wags when he meets someone. He is vocal and talks excitedly whining and making noises when someone new comes in the kennel. He is pretty active for a greyhound and very sweet. He loves to jump up and give hugs so we are working on that. Sum Dog has personality to spare.

Bellagio's sire is Kiowa WW Brother and his dam is WW Risky Whiskey. His trainer says that once he warms up to you he will follow you around and just lean into you for affection. He seemed a little overwhelmed when he first arrived but was still calmly friendly. But if you start petting him he will lean right into your leg and stare up at you wanting more petting. He is a very calm guy that is good on leash. Bellagio seems like a very sweet boy. He is fine with the small dogs he has been around and is very used to being handled by the kids of his trainer. He passed his cat test easily.

SUPER STAR!!! Jordan is a super star that retired from racing to become a dad. Now he has retired from his dad duties too at 9 years old. He just turned 9 on January 22nd. Jordan is a super star that won 50 races out of his 177 career races and raced his entire career at the top A level of racing. Even when he didn't win he usually placed in the money. A lot of his races were the big money Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. He was a member of the 2013 All American Team and was the number 4 racer in the country that year. He was the # 12 racer in the country in 2014. Jordan was the winner of the 2013 Derby Lane Fall Sprint and the 2013 T.L. Weaver Memorial. He also won the Derby Lane Inaugural twice in both 2013 and 2014 and in record time. He placed 2nd in the 2013 Derby Lane Holiday Challenge. Jordan placed 3rd in the 2013 Derby Lane Distance Classic and he placed 3rd in the 2012 Derby Lane Holiday Challenge and 3rd in the 2014 Derby Lane Distance Classic and 2014 St Pete Derby. We feel like we should ask for his autograph and are thrilled to be trusted to place such a super star. So far Jordan has had 26 pups that are old enough to register, but there are more that are too young to register that will be later. Jordan is a small black male that raced at just 67lbs. His sire is the famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kiowa Tiffany. He is a sweet friendly boy that came in especially for one of our volunteers that wanted a senior. He will be staying with her as long as he gets along well with her current dogs.

Gunner started his career at Tri-State in WV but spent nearly all his career at Orange Park. He was a pretty good racer there, spending a lot of time at the top A level and competing in a stakes race. He broke his leg in his last race on November 27th and still placed 4th in A level. He had surgery with a specialist in Florida before coming up to us. Gunner's leg is expected to make a full recovery. He will be rehabbed in NC. It will take him a couple of months to heal up so he should be ready to go home mid February. Arrangements can be made to meet him during his recovery. Gunner's sire is Seegold Big Red and his dam is Dutch Velda. He is a happy, friendly boy that doesn't seem to be phased by much. He seems like a confident guy. Gunner traveled well and even did OK at a hotel room he stayed in overnight on the trip. This guy has personality and looks! More as we get to know him.

Bebe has been around children from 5 to 13 in her racing kennel. The kids help their mom care for the dogs and curl up in her kennel with her and take naps when they get tired. Bebe passed her cat and small dog tests easily and is living with a kitten that she is good with. She has settled into foster care well and is very sweet and well behaved. Bebe has a rub mark on her nose from wearing her muzzle.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Pike Family of Florence SC

Sara came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track in mid 2017. She raced 112 races there and at Naples Ft Myers. She was a good racer getting up to the top A level. She raced at 60lbs and will turn 7 on May 15th. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is USS Santa Rosa. Sara was adopted by the Riggs family of N. Myrtle Beach 6/15/17. Her family returned her to us in February of 2020, but one of our volunteers, that dog sat Sara, asked if she could adopt her.  Sara is very calm, sweet and quiet. When she first meets a new person she will just stand there politely, waiting to be petted. She loves the attention but is a bit timid at first with new people and often won't go up to them to seek out attention. She just waits for them to come to her. She is a beautiful girl with a gorgeous, shiny, black coat. She is very quiet in her kennel and potties really well on leash, so would be fine without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her. She might be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living since she is so quiet and calm. Sara gets along well with other dogs and lived in a foster home with no other greyhounds so seems like she would be great as an only dog too. She passed her cat and small dog tests with no interest in the cat at all. She has lived with cats and a small dogs in a foster home and is used to seeing them both. Sara can do steps and will hop in and out of cars easily to go for rides, she loves to travel and just lays down in the car. She is pretty timid once she gets out of the car in a new place though, but is very good on leash. She is a very sweet, beautiful girl that is doing great in foster care and learning the rules of home life. Sara does tend to scare easily and seems like she is a very sensitive girl. She has been good with the kids she has met, but living with loud, running young kids might just be too scary for her. Quiet kids or older kids would be better.  Sara is completely vetted and ready to go home.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Burke Family

Gunslinger, now Tiger, is a red brindle male that came to us from the track initially before he was even two. He is being returned to us by the family that adopted him in March of 2014. His family renamed him Tiger. He ran 10 races at Birmingham Alabama Race Course before being retired. Tiger raced at 69lbs and is a tall handsome guy. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is CTW Cowgirl Up. Tiger was pretty calm and well behaved even when he was a young guy and is even calmer now. He is friendly and sweet and very outgoing with everyone he meets. He is very tolerant with other dogs and let a larger dog just lay right on him without complaint. He passed his cat test easily. He is being returned because he growled and air snapped at a visiting child that climbed on him while he was laying down. He chose not to actually be aggressive and bite. A growl or an air snap is the only way a dog can say it wants to be left alone. His family has moved close to relatives with small kids and plans to have their own as well in the future, so decided to re-home Tiger. Tiger will turn 8 on June 1st. These photos are from 2014. He still looks very much the same and is at a good weight and looks very healthy, just a little whiter in the face. He will have a fresh dental and health check and has already been brought up to date on his shots by his family. He is a very outgoing and sweet and appeared to be a very tolerant dog that didn't have space issues when placed initially. Any dog can become grumpy about their space when laying down or sleeping especially if kids get on them. That old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie" applies to most dogs. This is a sweet guy that loves people and comes already trained. He is very quiet in his crate so may be a great apartment dog.
