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.

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.

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.

Achilles Fury
Racing Name:
Achilles Fury
Pet/Kennel Name:
Vic
Age:
3.5
Color/Gender:
White with Brindle Spots Male
Cat Tolerance:

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.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Covard family of Aiken, SC 1.8.21

Amigo came in from the Waverider Kennel due to the Daytona Beach Track suddenly closing down back in March. He raced most of his career of 60 races at Daytona Beach but also raced some at Orange Park. He got up to B level and won a few races. Amigo is a goofy, outgoing, 2.5 year old brindle boy that raced at 70lbs. He turned 3 on September 26th. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Iris Of Ruckus. Amigo was very interested in the cat at first. After it slapped him he wouldn't go anywhere near it again though, so we think he would be trainable with a cat that would slap him once. Amigo was vetted at Northeast Animal Hospital in Columbia SC. He was placed in an adoptive home shortly after he arrived but is looking for another home now due to his family working in health care and being too busy right now to have a dog. His foster family has decided to adopt him so he is not available for adoption at this time.
