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 paid their adoption fee and completed the paperwork to make it official.

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.

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.

Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Fulton, Jekyll Island GA
Adoption Status: Pending Adoption to Fulton Family of Jekyll Island GA

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.

They are fostering Smore and plan to keep him so he is not available for adoption at this time. Like his brother, Smore is a happy friendly guy that is curious about everything. 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. He has cute floppy ears like his brother Milkyway and a similar sweet personality.

Friend just arrived from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. She started racing at the Tucson Track before it closed. Then she moved to Palm Beach, Mardi Gras and Naples Ft Myers for a total of 97 races. So she has traveled around a good bit. She was a pretty good racer staying at the top A level for awhile. We are very excited to get Friend because we placed her littermate Frosty a year or so ago. Friend is a tiny girl racing at just 54lbs. Her sire is Coldwater Torres and her dam is Cruzin the City. She turns 4 on August 2nd. Friend is a very happy friendly girl that seemed to do fine on the haul and take everything in stride. Very sweet girl. Friend is completely vetted and ready to be adopted. She has been great with the kids and small dogs she has met so should be fine to live with either. She still needs testing with cats.

Mo
Racing Name:
Mo
Pet/Kennel Name:
Mo
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Watkins, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Watkins family of Greenville

Mo is an XL sweet boy that never raced and never received an official racing name. He weighed 82lbs at his vet visit. Mo schooled once but just walked out of the box and stood there looking around. He really wasn't interested in running or chasing so he was just retired. He came straight to us from the Kansas farm where he was raised. Because of never having a racing career Mo has not been exposed to much about home and city life and still has a lot to learn. He is particularly confused with the variety of flooring, carpets, wood, brick tile, and stairs. He isn't fond of any of it yet, but is learning. Dirt and grass are his preferred things to walk on since that is what he is used to. He will just freeze on other surfaces. Mo is a sweet guy that is very loving and friendly toward people, but he does seem to be a sensitive guy that gets worried about new things. He gains confidence slowly. On the trip over from Kansas in one of our volunteer's vans he would snuggle up to her when she would lay down to rest in the van. Mo is just a little jumpy if you move suddenly, but he does want to be with you and stay close. He is great on walks and walks politely on leash outdoors. Inside he can freeze on leash when he encounters new types of flooring that scare him. He is doing pretty good on the tile and wood floors in his foster home after about a week, but the carpets and brick in the home are a little harder for him to accept. He is great with the small dog that is in his foster home and he just sniffed the cat he met. Mo is normally pretty quiet in his kennel but sometimes does the famous greyhound roo that sounds much like a sad wolf howl. He is quite the singer with a deep, sweet, sad voice. He is very sweet and still has his furry, farm puppy coat that is starting to shed out now. He just turned 2 in April so is pretty young. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Fly Miley Cyrus.

Butch is a pretty red fawn boy that raced at 75lbs. He raced at Southland, Palm Beach and just retired from Sanford Orlando. He did get up to the top A level briefly. Butch turned 3 on April 17th. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Marsey. He was described by his trainer as an energetic, fun, happy guy that is always very well behaved in the kennel. She said that Butch was good with the other dogs but tended to do his own thing and was more attached to the people than other dogs. She thinks he would probably do fine as an only dog as well as in a pack. Butch is a very sweet guy, he passed his cat test and is living with a cat in his foster home. He also passed his small dog test and seemed to like the toddler he was introduced to. More as we get to know him.
