Pending Hounds

IMPORTANT! As of January 1st 2018 our requested minimum contribution for a dog went up to $325 due to increasing vet fees!
 
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.

Tig is a retired brood mom that just retired from being a mom and is coming to us from a farm in Arkansas. She had a litter of 7 pups in 2014 and had another litter recently. We already have one of the most recent puppies that is pending adoption now.  We also placed her sister Rico's By A Nose recently. Tig was a star at the race track and was a finalist in the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Juvenile Stakes Race. She competed in other big stakes races too during her career. She raced at the top A and AA levels. Tig started out racing at Wheeling Downs in WV in 2010 and moved to Tri State Race track in WV in January of 2011 and raced the rest of her career there. She retired in March of 2013 after 139 races after racing her entire career at the top levels and winning many races. Since she was such a good racer her owners decided to let her become a mom in hopes her racing skill would be passed on to the next generation. Now she is finished with mom duties and is in full retirement. Her sire is the very famous Flying Penske and her dam is Myokie Flame. Tig turned 9 on November 24th. Because Tig is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Tig passed her small dog test easily and is being fostered in a home with cats so we should know how she does with them very soon. She is a good traveler and just lays down and enjoys the ride. She is a happy girl that doesn't act nine at all. She is curious and seems to take everything in stride without being stressed. She is very friendly and likes meeting people. More as we get to know her.

Rascal
Age:

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Frymire, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Steward Family of Waterford CT 2/18/17

Rascal just arrived from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Hallandale Beach Florida. He also raced briefly at Derby Lane near Tampa. He only raced 11 races and the best he did was to place 4th in one of those. In the rest, he was back toward the back of the pack. Because he didn't show any promise as a racer he retired very young. Rascal won't even turn 2 until May 15th. He raced at 71lbs and is a gorgeous, shiny, dark brindle guy. He is friendly and seems pretty calm for such a young guy. He does need some more work on walking on leash without pulling because his race career was so short and he didn't get much experience with that. Rascal passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest so should be able to live with both. His sire is KL's Raymond and his dam is Kiowa Tara Tess. Rascal whined some in his crate a bit the first night but quieted down the next day so we don't know if he will be OK for apartment living. More as we get to know him.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Amy
Age:
Almost 2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Kaage (Augusta GA)
Adoption Status: Pending to the Parr family

Amy is a young girl that only had 4 schooling races and never an official race. She started out her schooling at Palm Beach and then was moved to Sanford Orlando for one more attempt before she was retired and sent to us. She is a small girl at just 56lbs. She will turn 2 on February 27th. Her sire is Fuzzy's Cannon and her dam is Amazing Run. She was too excited about the cat when she met it, so needs a home with no kitties but she did great with the small dogs she met so should be able to live with them. Amy also likes kids. This is a fun, happy girl that is very friendly. She does need work on her leash skills since she didn't get much experience with that during her very short racing career. She loves squirrels a little too much on walks and has trouble walking calmly if they are around. Since Amy is so young she does still have some playful puppy energy. This little girl is completely a fresh slate that will be a lot of fun for her future family to work with and mold into the perfect dog.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Huntington Family of Anderson SC

Kevin came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Mardi Gras Race Track. He has 41 races listed and won a few of those getting up to B level. He actually competed in a Stakes race in Palm Beach. He was mostly competitive at the lower levels though. Kevin raced at 73lbs and just turned 3 on December 15th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is K's Babe. Kevin was a bit overwhelmed when he arrived. He isn't shy and will wag his tail and go straight up to people. He just seemed a bit unsure with everything new going on around him. Kevin made a little noise in his kennel at first but quieted right down. He is a pretty fawn boy with a dark face and ears. His ears stand straight up when he is curious about something. Kevin passed his small dog test and is in a foster home with a small dog. He was too interested in chasing the cat to live with cats though.

She raced at 65lbs and turned 7 on March 17th so is a St Patricks girl. Her sire is the famous Jimbo Scotty and her dam is Bella Neutron. Bella is an alert, friendly girl that was curiously checking things out when we got her. She rode well in the car and seems like a pretty confident, easy going gal. Bella passed her cat and small dog tests with just a casual sniff and is being fostered in a home with cats. She is white with the cutest tiny freckles like pepper in her fur. Not the larger ticking like we normally see just tiny black flecks. Very unusual and unique. She also has a very long nose with a long overbite which is very cute. Very cute girl!

She retired from the Daytona Beach Race track and also raced at Naples Ft Myers and Palm Beach Tracks. She raced 161 races. Diza turned 5 on March 1st and raced 161 races. She is owned by Atascocita Racing which is how she got the beginning of her name - all their dogs have that same prefix. Diza's sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Atascocita Felda. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either of them. Diza did fine at her first outing and loved it. She was amazed at all the dog stuff on the shelves at PetSmart too.

Bebe came in from the Waverider Kennel at Daytona Beach. She is a 62lb black female that is the daughter to a girl we placed, Wanna Rumble and we also placed her grandmother, Wheelie Cool. Her sire is Pat C Clement. We have been waiting on her to retire for some time now. The owners of her mother are fostering her and plan to adopt her if she fits in well with their family. So Bebe is not available for adoption at this time. Bebe raced 170 races and got up to B level winning some and placed a lot. She turned 4 on July 13th. 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.
