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.

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.

Special Needs - Needs experienced dog home Jack is a famous boy even though he never raced. He was in the first litter of pups that Greyhoundfacts.org followed. You can see pictures of him and his litter Here. He comes with tons of puppy photos from the time he was born. Jack wasn't that interested in racing and never had one race. He was sent to an adoption group in Colorado when he was only a little over a year old, but they had him for months without any interested adopters. His owner sent him to Florida for a change of scenery in hopes he would find a home there, but that didn't work out because he was still a big high energy pup at that age. He was brought in to our group for an adopter that wanted him. Jack's sire is the famous Paddy Whacker and his dam is Blazin Angelfire. He is a large guy and should weigh around 80lbs.  He will turn 3 on May 21st. Jack has been in several adoptive homes, but has been returned by each due to a variety of problems. He was returned the first time because he played too rough with a 3lb dog in the home, so we had to mark him "no small dogs". Jack was returned again because he was growly with a child when he was laying down. Even though he loved the kids in his foster home, he had to be listed "no small kids".  He was returned again after only a couple of days because the german shepherd in his home didn't get along with him. He was just returned again because they didn't have time to spend with him and he got bored and started getting into things. Jack doesn't like to be crated and complains loudly about it, so he can't be an apartment dog either. Jack has calmed down a lot since he arrived. A greyhounds brain comes in sometimes between 2 and 3 years old and now that Jack is nearly 3 he seems to be a much easier dog. His current foster home has had no trouble with him at all. He has gotten along fine with their smallish to medium sized mixed dog and their greyhounds and has been the perfect house guest. Jack is extremely affectionate and sweet and just wants attention and love. Even though he can be excitable and playful for short spurts, he calms down and can be quite the couch potato now. Jack had mixed results with cats in his foster homes, so we also put him down as needing a home with no cats. He was good with cats most of the time, but he could get excited when they played and ran and wanted to join in. Jack is very outgoing, waggy, friendly and happy. He loves to give kisses. He has a lot of personality and just needs some exercise, leadership and rules for him to thrive. Jack was retired out of training shortly after he was a year old so has been waiting on the right home for almost 2 years now. Could your home be the right one?

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.

Papas Boy
Racing Name:
Papas Boy
Pet/Kennel Name:
Jarrod
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng in Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Dalton Family of Myrtle Beach

Special Needs - Very Shy! Jarrod initially was sent to the adoption kennel at the race track in Jacksonville in November. He was there for a couple of weeks and wasn't doing well because he is very shy. They asked us if we could take him into one of our foster homes to get him home acclimated at the beginning of December so he has been with us for months waiting on the right home. Jarrod never was interested in racing so never had an official race. He is a small guy that weighs about 68lbs and turned 2 on October 13th. His sire is Offthebrakedrake and his dam is Shorty's Nana. He passed his cat and small dog tests and is living with cats in his foster home. Jarrod is a genetically shy boy that is afraid of new people, new things and fast movements. It is his personality and not the result of anything bad happening to him. We occasionally see dogs like him that seem to have something similar to an anxiety disorder and are afraid of everything. He will need a family with a lot of patience that can wait for him to warm up to them. It may take months or a year, before a shy dog like him, gets really comfortable in a home. He is probably always going to want to be a homebody. Going out in public and travel is probably going to be too overwhelming, so his family will need to be understanding of that. We have him listed as older children only because the fast movements and loud noises that little children make will be frightening to him. Like most shy dogs, Jarrod would probably do best in a home with another more confident dog to hang out with. It took Jarrod a couple of months to get to the point that his foster mom could reach out and pet him without him ducking away. He wouldn't approach her at first unless she was kneeling or squatting down. He did sneak up to sniff her when her back is turned. He does seem to want to interact but just has to get his courage up. He plays with toys now and will play bow and bark and run around when his foster mom play bows back at him. He chooses to stay in the room with his foster mom now, rather than going back to his crate or hiding in another room. After a few months he started seeking affection and will come to his foster mom to be petted now. He is very good in the house and hasn't had an accident yet. He goes to the back door when he needs to go outside. He does get loud in the crate sometimes, so he won't be a good apartment dog. Jarrod is a gorgeous brindle boy with very unusual golden eyes. So handsome! It is very rewarding to work with an exceptionally shy dog like Jarrod. When he finally comes around and decides to trust his new family it will be a beautiful thing, but it will take a lot of patience on the part of his new family. He is an exceptionally timid boy.

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.

Rose just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course where she raced 36 races. She only won a couple of those so she was retired young. Rose just turned 2 on January 25th. 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.
