Pending Hounds

A list of all the greyhounds pending adoption through Greyhound Crossroads. Although some of these dogs have been on here a long time, they are not available for adoption. In most cases the dogs are safely in their adoptive homes and their owners have not yet made a contribution towards their adoption and/or completed the paperwork to make it official.
 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: If you are in our adoption area, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home.

Greyhound Crossroads Adoption Requests


If you have adopted from Greyhound Crossroads previously: Please check our available hounds page and contact your adoption rep to make arrangements to meet the dog you are interested in.

Denton just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He never raced. His tattoos are 74185 - 109H and he was born on October 29th of 2019 so is very young and just turned 1 in October. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Biodiesel. Denton had runny eyes and skin allergies off and on, then had a bad reaction to a wormer (Moxidectin) he was given. His adoptive owner should not use Moxidectin or Heartworm preventatives containing Ivermectin on him. Denton recovered completely and seems fine now. His racing owner decided not race him because of his sensitivities, so Denton is looking for a pet home. He was curious and did a lot of sniffing when he met a cat, but passed his initial cat test. He was more excitable around the small, fast moving dog, but it seemed to be more puppy play drive than prey drive. His foster home has small dogs and will see how trainable he is with her dogs. Our vet has checked him and he does have thin hair but no sign of skin irritation. His eyes do get a little discharge from time to time and the results of a tear test came back slightly dry which can be caused by allergies. Our vet gave him some eye drops to try and we are waiting on the results of some other tests. She felt that his allergies were minor and shouldn't prevent him from being adopted. Denton seems sweet and pretty calm for his age. He is still in the puppy chewing stage and needs strong fleece bedding to prevent shredding. Because of his chewing he needs to be supervised in the house until he learns what is OK to chew on and what is not. He seems to prefer wood and fabric items. Denton wants to please and has been responding quickly to training in his foster home. He has done some crying and howling in his kennel, so may not be able to live in an apartment or townhouse. He quickly figured out to go to the door and bark when he needed to go outside to potty. Denton is very sweet and affectionate. His head will be in your lap anytime you sit down. He loves to play fetch and loves playing with other dogs. Denton is young and still has a playful puppy side.

Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Joczik, Anderson SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Joczik Family

Paisley just arrived from the Running to Stand Still farm in Florida with her sister Faith. She raced a total of 24 races at Derby Lane in Florida before all the Florida Tracks were voted out of business at the end of 2020. Paisley raced her entire career in maiden - the lowest level of racing for dogs that have never won a race. They must win one maiden race to start climbing the different levels of racing and Paisley just couldn't do it before racing ended. Paisley raced at 58lbs and just turned 2 on January 16th. Her sire is Quick Reply and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Paisley passed her cat test easily with no interest at all. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Her foster home got her hoping that she would do good with their other pets and planned to keep her if all went well so she will be staying. Be sure to check out Paisley's other photos. Lots of cute puppy pictures of her at the farm.

Racing Name:
RTSS True Faith
Pet/Kennel Name:
Faith
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Black with White Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Sellner, Wagner SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Georgian family, 4.17.21

Faith came in initially with her sister Paisley from the Running to Stand Still Farm in Florida. She raced just 4 races at Palm Beach in Florida before all the tracks in Florida closed for good at the end of 2020. She was just getting her career started but finished toward the back of the pack in the few races she did have so probably would not have had a long career anyway. Faith raced at 61lbs and just turned 2 on January 16th. Some of our volunteers visited the farm she was raised on so have photos of her taken throughout her life. Be sure to click on her other photos to see them. Her sire is Quick Reply and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Faith was placed in a home but they reported that she was never happy there. She was there for a month, but they said she didn't want to interact with their dogs at all and was protective of her food. When we got her back she was underweight and very hungry, which could have caused her odd behavior. She had shown no sign of any food issues in her foster home or with any other dogs previously and was a happy go lucky girl. She was happy and wagging her tail as soon as she saw her foster family again. She has had no issues with any of the other greyhounds in her foster home and interacts with them normally since she has been back. Even though she has never shown any sign of aggression to people we would prefer to not place her with small children that might grab a bone or mess with her food just to be on the safe side. Faith does have a high prey drive and did not pass her cat test. She hasn't lived with tiny dogs, and can mistake them for squirrels, so needs a home without kitties or small dogs. Faith has been back in her foster home for some time now and has been a wonderful happy girl since she walked through the door. We put Faith on vet hold due to her weight loss to be sure she was healthy but she is gaining weight back and is fine.

Harry Bosch
Racing Name:
Harry Bosch
Pet/Kennel Name:
Harry
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Greenberg, Spartanburg SC Area
Adoption Status: Pending to the Thomson family of Charlotte NC

Harry is one of the last greyhounds coming to us from the Florida race tracks. The tracks there have been gradually shutting down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end racing in Florida by the beginning of 2021. Harry came to us from D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane. That track just closed on December 27th of 2020. Harry never actually had an official race at that track and was retired before his career even got started. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He will turn 2 on March 13th. Since he didn't race we don't have an official race weight on him, but he is a pretty tall guy that is bigger than his two brothers that he arrived with. He weighed 72lbs but is on the thin side. As a pet Harry should probably weigh between 75 and 80lbs. Harry came in with his two littermates Irvin Irving and Reggie Woo and both of them are smaller guys that raced at just 71lbs. Harry's litter were all named for the popular Harry Bosch books and TV series. Harry did not pass his cat test. He was very interested in the cat until the cat slapped him. He wouldn't go near the cat after that, so it is possible that he could be trained with them. But he still barked and seemed excitable from a distance, even after the cat smack. We think he would do best in a home without kitties. He has been fine with a small dog in his foster home and seems to get along with the their other greyhounds as well. He is very quiet in his crate and crates nicely so he may do fine as an apartment dog. He is very friendly and happy and gets a little bouncy and playful when he comes out of the crate. He liked the children he met too. Very sweet curious guy that is busy checking out everything in the house. He gives sweet kisses.

Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Dalton Family of Anderson SC

Lily just arrived from the Running to Stand Still farm in Florida. She was tattooed but never completed the registration process to get a racing name. She has been known as Lily her whole life. She is not going to race due to the closure of all the tracks in Florida. Lily is young and just turned 1 on August 3rd. Her sire is Makeshift and her dam is Lilly Langtry. Since she never raced we don't have a racing weight for her. She arrived with her littermate Aspen.  Lily's owner says she can be a bit shy at times, but she has handled the move to us very well and has been very friendly and happy so far. Lily has never had the training that most greyhounds get at the track so still needs leash and manners training. She passed her cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either. She has been in a foster home with cats and she seems stressed by them and barks at them. That causes the cats to stare at her which only makes the problem worse. She isn't trying to chase the cats but just seems stressed out by them so probably needs a home with no cats. Lily was vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin. Be sure to look at her other photos to see pictures of her at 3 months old on the farm.

Fostered by (location):
Doby Salisbury, NC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Ward Family of Greenville SC, 2.6.21

Kansas is a young greyhound puppy that just arrived from a greyhound farm. He broke his leg while playing with siblings on the farm. His owner had the leg surgically repaired with a plate. Even with the best medical repair, Kansas isn't going to be fast enough to make it at the track as a racer, so was sent to us to place. Kansas has been X-rayed and examined by our vets and his leg is long healed. He has been released for adoption. Kansas turned one year old in August so is still pretty young and puppyish. He was tattooed at 3 months old and his tattoos are 73997 in left ear and 89A in right ear. He never completed the registration process and never actually raced.

Age:
3.5
Color/Gender:
White with Brindle Spots Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Czapiewski family of Greenville SC

Vic just arrived from the Running To Stand Still dog farm in Florida. He has been there since he retired from racing in August. Vic raced 62 races at Derby Lane in Florida. He got up to A level and raced in some stakes races too so he was pretty good. He retired due to a reoccurring injury. He has no sign of any injury now so it shouldn't be anything that will affect him as a pet. Vic is a pretty boy that is almost all white except for a few small brindle spots and some red freckles in his fur. He raced at 75lbs but has put on 5lbs since he retired and is now 80lbs. Vic turned 3 on March 15th. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is PTL Que. Vic is friendly with a happy wagging tail. He is very quiet in his kennel so may do well in an apartment or townhouse. He is very food motivated so might be great for someone that wanted to do trick or obedience training. Vic was gently curious about the cat and did a lot of sniffing, but eventually wandered off to check out other things. When the cat had enough of the sniffing and growled and hissed at him, he backed off right away and wouldn't get near the cat again. He seemed like he may have had a run in with an angry cat before. He was also good with a small white dog in his first foster home. Vic seems like a very sweet guy that will make a great first or 5th greyhound.

KB's Sharko
Racing Name:
KB's Sharko
Pet/Kennel Name:
Thor
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Herman (Anderson, SC)
Adoption Status: Pending to the Herman family of Anderson SC, 1.21.21

Thor initially came in from the Orange Park Race Course in Jacksonville FL last year, at that time he was called Sharky but his first owners renamed him. He also raced at Gulf, Dubuque and Southland tracks so is quite the traveler. Although he raced 55 races, he was never very good, and only won 3 races. Thor mainly raced at the lowest D level. He is the most laid back, relaxed dog ever according to his foster dad. Nothing phases him and he just goes with the flow. Very sweet guy! Thor turned 3 on June 12th and is a big guy racing at 80lbs. His sire is Gigawatt and his dam is TB's Flo Rita. Thor was adopted in September of 2020 but his family has asked us for help re-homing him and his housemate Valkyrie due to a divorce. His former family did not have a fenced yard, so he should be fine going potty on leash in another home. He is already home acclimated and should be an easy addition. His family did not have any kids but says he likes kids and was great with the small children he was around when with them. His former family did not own small dogs or cats so he hasn't lived with either but he passed his test with both at the track before he arrived. His current foster family is planning to adopt him but has reported a lot of interest in their cats. They are hoping with some training and time he will get better.
