Elvis is a gorgeous, light brindle guy with gold eyes. He raced at a huge 86lbs. He is retired from Sanford Orlando Track but also raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. He only raced 14 races and only won one of those. Elvis retired a little over a year ago and has been in a home for the last year. His owner died suddenly on April 1st and Elvis ended up at Animal Control. We are making arrangements to get him out right away. He is young and won't turn 3 until May 26th. His sire is Flying Culloden and his dam is SNJ Ginger. Crown Royal is doing great with the children in his previous foster home and several mastiffs that he lived with in his adoptive home. Elvis settled into home life perfectly and is a sweet, gentle giant that seems pretty laid back and well behaved. Since Elvis's owner didn't have cats we still need to test him with kitties.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Gabriel Family of Charlotte NC 4/21/17

Tipsy is a sweet, friendly, young, female greyhound with a wonderful personality. She initially came to us due to an accidental pregnancy and delivered a litter of 4 puppies a week before we got her and her little family. She raised her puppies and they were all adopted and are over a year old now. Tipsy was a racer and a pretty good one, racing most of her 61 races at A level in Daytona Beach. She is a small, brindle girl that raced at 56lbs. Her sire is Pat C Clement and her dam is JS Amber Trophy. She will turn 4 on March 12th so is still a young girl. She is home acclimated and has been in an adoptive home for about a year now. She is being returned to us because she is bossy with the other female dog in the home and they are just not getting along. Otherwise she is the perfect girl, very happy, friendly and well behaved. Tipsy has been living with an indoor cat and is excellent with it. She has also lived with several children and loves kids. She follows the two year old child around the house and wants to stay close to her. She is very snuggly and loving to everyone and just has an excellent personality. Her family is very attached to her and this is very difficult for them because her only issue is her bossiness with the other female dog. Since we don't know for sure if this is just directed at other females, we think it would be wisest to put Tipsy in a home where she would be the only dog. This is something that doesn't happen frequently and she is normally good with small and large dogs she meets. Tipsy is a calm girl that is quiet in her crate but she is rarely kenneled because she doesn't really need to be.

Cat Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Boyd, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: In Process to Hays Family of Greenville SC

Fifi is a young girl that never raced that came to us from Julia Ward's farm in Kansas. She is a young girl that just turned two on December 3rd. Her sire is Last Outlaw and her dam is WW's Sedan. Fifi has no prey drive and wouldn't chase a lure, so she never made it to the race track and never completed the registration process. She has tattoos in her ears but doesn't have an official racing name. Fifi is happy, sweet girl that is very friendly but submissive, dropping down at your feet and rolling over to show her belly while wagging her tail like crazy. Fifi has been in an adoptive home since March but she is getting more and more afraid of their toddler and his toys as he gets older and more mobile. They have made the difficult decision to find another home for her without toddlers where she can be happy. Fifi has no prey drive and doesn't even chase squirrels or neighborhood cats in her backyard. She lives with a cat and a small kitten. She is excellent on leash. She is very sensitive and rarely ever does anything again if she is corrected for it.

Dusty is a 78lb black male that won't turn 3 until November 26th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is TMB Sweet Alex. He just retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He only raced a few races there before his kennel closed. He also raced a few races at Palm Beach and Derby Lane. He didn't race long and only has 29 races listed. Dusty is a very friendly, sweet guy that stood with his head on our shoulder for an entire 2 hour drive. He seems like he has a real goofy personality that shows in his pictures. He does have a short attention span and wants to check out everything at once which helped him pass his cat and small dog tests. Small dogs cool! Cool cats! Look a plant! What is this a rug? A toy! Look a TV! Wow so much to see! Dusty is a handsome guy that has a shiny black coat and will make someone a fun friend. He is young and does have a higher energy level because of his age than a typical couch potato greyhound probably because he is so young. He is bouncy and does pull on leash trying to see everything in his exciting new world. He does have an amazing tongue but in his defense it was a really hot day when the pictures were taken. Dusty's trainer at the track took her 3 boys with her to the kennel so all her dogs are used to being around children. Dusty is doing great in his foster home on a farm with the cats, chickens, goats and cows.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Susan Bodner Family of Charlotte, NC Since 10/13/13

Henry is a white male with brindle spots. He is very friendly and would play with his trainers at the track if he spots someone that he even thinks might be interested in petting him his tail starts wagging and he tries to make his way over to see them. He also passed his cat test with no interest and hasshown no interest in chasing cats or small dogs he has seen on walks in the neighborhood so he seems like he would do really good in a home that has small furries. He raced at  73lbs so is a mid sized guy. He will celebrate his 3rd birthday on Oct 20 and he hopes to celebrate it with his new family. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is VV Here We Go. He raced 69 races and started out at Bluffs Run at Council Bluffs IA, from there he went to Sarasota FL and then on to Sanford Orlando Track where he retired. So far he has done great at his foster home. He has had no accidents in the house and going potty on leash very nicely since his foster home doesn't have a fenced yard. He seems to pick up on things quickly and has already picked up on walking nicely on leash after pulling pretty hard to begin with. He is a very loving guy that his foster home is really enjoying. He may do OK as an apartment or townhouse dog since he does potty on leash and so far has been quiet when left at the townhouse he is fostered in.

Henry is not available. His adopter has just failed to pay his adoption fee.

Weird is an extra large brindle boy that raced at 82lbs. We don't know how he got his "weird" name but he doesn't seem weird at all. Super sweet and cute! He retired from the Palm Beach Race track after only 8 races on August 13th. He did win a couple of races out of those. He is young and just turned 2 on October 29th. His sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Rosalina. We placed his littermate Kiowa Wish N You too! He was too excited about meeting the cat so we don't think he should live with a cat. He seems OK with a small white dog though. He is pretty good on leash. He is a very outgoing happy guy. More as we get to know him.

Sakura just arrived from Waverider Kennel at Daytona Beach Race Track. She is a very young pup that never raced because she only weighed 42lbs and never really wanted to chase a lure. Because she didn't show much promise as a racer, Sakura's owner never completed the registration process and she never got a registered name. Her DOB is 8/11/15 and her sire is Go Bon Hawk Talk and her dam is Rido's Honeybear. She came in with her littermate Rido's Steve. Sakura came in for one of our volunteers to adopt and isn't available at this time.

She is a tiny brindle female that raced at just 53lbs. Her sire is Last Outlaw and her dam is WW's Junker. She passed her cat and her small dog tests so she should be fine to live with either. She is described as a calm, sweet girl that is very loving and gives hugs. Rose's foster family quickly fell in love with her and decided to keep her.

His sire is Hi Noon Renegade and his dam is SL Ava. Smore turned 3 on Dec 2nd. Smore raced 44 races and got up to B level.

She is very young and won't even turn 2 until May 5th. Her trainer says she got her name because she will get down low and spin on her back legs when she is excited or happy. She is a super outgoing girl that loves everyone she meets. She would be a meet and greet superstar according to her trainer. Since she is young she is still pretty active and playful. Her sire is WW Apple Jax and her dam is WW's Revolver. Spin passed her cat test and should be fine to live with small dogs too. She has been around her trainer's kids ages 5 to 12 for the short time she was in the racing kennel. She has been there since January. Spin has done well on walks and is pretty good on leash. She wasn't phased by the hardwood floors in her foster home. Very cute girl that doesn't seem to be worried by much.
