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.  There weren't enough greyhounds for the adopters and adoption groups wanting them before the tracks closed. Now we have an impossibly long waiting list and greyhounds are have become very rare. We don't now when or if we will get any more greyhounds. At this time we are sorry but we are unable to accept any new applications to adopt greyhounds. Many greyhound adoption groups have already closed or have switched to other breed rescue. We are remaining open to support greyhounds we have already placed and to help with rehoming any greyhounds adopted through groups that have already closed their doors.

If you have adopted from Greyhound Crossroads previously: Please fill out the form below and we will contact you IF we get a greyhound that might be a good match for you.

Code Blue just arrived from the Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel at Wheeling WV race track. He raced a total of 74 races and also raced at Dubuque in IA and Southland in Arkansas. He mainly raced at the lower C and D levels. Code Blue is a big light brindle guy that raced at 80lbs and is a stocky very muscled boy. He turned 3 on June 2nd. His sire is Flyin Honor Code and his dam is Sierra Nevada. Code Blue seems like a pretty active, curious boy that is very friendly and confident. He is very strong and excitedly goes from place to place sniffing and pulling on leash so needs some work on leash walking. He has a strong prey drive and definitely can not live with cats. He did fine with a small white Italian Greyhound he met, but may need to be introduced cautiously to any small dogs that resemble rabbits or squirrels.  He is doing great with the other male greyhounds in his foster home and learned the stairs easily. Code Blue seems like a smart boy that isn't phased by new things. Code Blue seems like he will be a great pet for someone that will work with him on his leash manners. Code Blue was vetted on November 4th at Emerald City Vet Clinic in Greenwood.

SENIOR! Lori just came to us from the Roban Farm, in Florida, where she has been living since she retired from racing in Feb of 2014. She was an amazing racer and raced 133 races at the top levels at Ebro and Sarasota tracks in Florida. She is the 2011 Ebro Mega Morris Juvenile Stake winner and was the 2013 Ebro Inaugural Champion. She is famous! She was retired to the farm to become a mom and had a total of 22 pups in 4 litters. Her last litter was in 2018 and she has been living on the farm as a pet since then. Because of the end of racing in Florida her owners have been forced to cut back on the number of dogs on the farm. They made the tough decision to let us place Lori. They only have 7 dogs left on the farm as pets now. Lori is an incredibly energetic busy girl. She is curious about everything and acts more like a 2 year old than a dog that turned 11 on February 22nd. You would never guess she is a senior. She is incredibly strong and gets excited to sniff everything at first when on leash. She does calm down and walks better after a few minutes. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Good Charlotte. Lori raced at 65lbs. Lori passed her small dog test and cat test. She was very curious at first like she is with everything else but calmed down quickly and went on to sniffing everything else. She seemed to like the small kids she met. She is a very friendly sweet girl that is going to make a great pet. Because she is a senior she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Lori was vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital

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.

Harry Bosch
Racing Name:
Harry Bosch
Pet/Kennel Name:
Harry
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

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.

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

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.

Karma
Racing Name:
Karma
Pet/Kennel Name:
Aria/Karma/Saber
Age:
5
Color/Gender:
black female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Moore, Athens GA
Adoption Status: Pending to the Moore family of Athens, GA, 6.14.21

Aria was initially placed by the Birmingham Track Adoption Group in early 2016 as a young puppy, just after she was tattooed at 3 months old. Her ear tattoos are 115B and 67724. Although she was tattooed she was never completed the registration process and didn't receive a registered racing name. Her littermates were racers and we ended up placing two of them: NPZ Imperial Lee and KMZ Banshee. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dancin Inmiami. She was born on November 2nd of 2015. She was the runt of the litter and only weighed 49lbs at her last vet checkup. Her first owners renamed her Karma. That adoptive family decided to return her to the Birmingham Track Adoption Group when she was 10 months old. Her first family thought she would do better with someone with more greyhound experience and they wanted to get a boxer puppy instead. Karma was transported to our group from Birmingham and was adopted 8/28/16 when she was 10 months old by a dog trainer that had had other greyhounds. She was renamed Saber. Unfortunately Saber's owner died in 2020. Right after her owner passed away, Saber got out and got hit by a car. She suffered a broken leg. Her previous owner's family had it fixed and kept her until now. The break is long healed, but still causes her some pain and probably always will. She does limp and is on a low dose of inexpensive doggy pain meds, that she will need to continue to take. Her previous owner taught her a range of obedience commands. She was a Therapy Dog that went on regular visits to hospitals and nursing homes, so is an exceptionally very friendly, well trained and well behaved dog. She has been fine with the small Italian greyhound she met and she was required to be good with other dogs on her Therapy Dog visits. She does want to chase cats so needs a home without them. Saber has developed a corn on her back right foot that will require regular maintenance down the road. It also contributes to her limping. She got a dental and updated vetting at Emerald City Animal Hospital and saw an orthopedic specialist to be sure that there was nothing more that could be done for her previous broken leg when we got her. She is up to date on everything and ready to go home.

Racing Name:
La De Rae
Pet/Kennel Name:
Greta
Age:
12
Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Kaage Augusta GA
Adoption Status: In Process to the Howell Family of Greenville SC

Special Senior! Greta initially came in from an Oklahoma farm where she had been since she has retired from racing. She raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers and Flagler Race Tracks. She did get up to the top A level so was good. She race 121 races and retired in September of 2013, and went back to the farm to be a mom. She never ended up actually having pups though and was sent to us in January of 2016 to be a pet. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is PR's Maddy Rae. Greta is a tiny girl that raced at just 54lbs. She will celebrate her 12th birthday on November 16th so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Greta was adopted by one of our volunteers after her arrival back in January of 2016. Unfortunately they have been forced to give up their beloved dogs. Her owners are experiencing severe health issues that keep them from being able to care for pets anymore. Greta is a real lover that seeks out attention and follows her family around when she is not dozing on a dog bed. She loves the kids she has met. She is very friendly and happy. Greta came into her home like she had always been there. She was a little interested in cats at first but became very good with cats and chose to avoid them. She was too interested in small dogs that were bouncing or running around, so her initial foster home thought she would do better in a home without small dogs but she has been around small dogs successfully over the years since. Greta is gentle, loving and loves to snuggle. She has no trouble with stairs and easily navigates all types of flooring. She crates well and loves to go for rides in the car.
