Rainbow Bridge

 

 These greyhounds were all adopted through Greyhound Crossroads and have passed away or as we like to say "crossed the Rainbow Bridge". If you would like us to add your greyhound to this list please email us here. Include your greyhound's racing name, nickname, color, gender, and a paragraph or two about your dog and your favorite photo. You can also include when you adopted your dog and when it passed away if you would like to. We have been adopting out dogs for years and our current website was put up in 2009. This list is far from complete. We apologize that we have not been able to add many of the dogs that were adopted previous to 2009.

Blackjack is a sweet, friendly, happy boy that will celebrate his 4th birthday on March 19th. He raced at 75lbs. Blackjack passed his cat and small dog test so should be fine living with either. He has been living with a small white dog in foster care with no problem. He is home acclimated and has great house manners already. Blackjack has a glossy black coat and is SO beautiful. We need to get some newer photos of him because the ones we have are from when he first arrived and didn't have a shiny coat and was a little too thin still. Blackjack is quiet in his crate and potties well on leash and was actually fostered for awhile in a townhouse so would be a great apartment dog. He gets along well with other dogs but seems like he would also be fine as an only dog. He isn't that interested in playing with toys but has a ball he likes. He will roll over, show his belly and wave his paws at you to get a belly rub. Blackjack's only negative is that he has been a little grouchy about his space occasionally when laying down. Just a growl, never a bite. It isn't something that happens often and has improved and only happened once in the last 4 or 5 months. We think he probably should be placed only with older children that will understand not to bother him when he is asleep or laying down though.

Jack moved to Maryland with his family and had a long happy life with them. Crossing the bridge 9/21/20. He will be missed.

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:

Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Shappard Family of Clayton NC, 5/7/17

Willy initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track where he raced 122 races. He was pretty good and got up to the top A level briefly. Willy is a an extra large guy that raced at 83lbs. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Sweetsouthern. He just turned 6 on December 24th. Willy is a very friendly, happy, confident guy. He was in an adoptive home since April of 2015, so he is already home acclimated. He loves people and does great at our meet and greets going up to each person for love. He is the rare greyhound that will actually bark at intruders that try to come into his home and yard though so would be a great dog for someone that wanted a watch dog. He loves to go out on walks and for drives and is very friendly with everyone he meets off of his own property though. He adores going for walks and potties great on leash so would be fine for a family without a fenced yard. Willy is a great guy with a fun, playful personality in short bursts. He is calm and well behaved in the house though. He loves to lay on the couch with his owner with his head in his lap and loves to snuggle. Because he can be protective of his property, we think he would do best in a quiet, adult only home that doesn't have guests often. Willy has had some grumpiness over his space when laying down and that is another reason we have him listed as no children. He has done great in his foster home living with other greyhounds and two smallish to medium sized dogs but Willy can be bossy with other dogs. Medium to large housemates are OK if they are submissive and OK with another dog being the leader of the pack. Willy has lived in a home as an only dog so would be perfect for a one dog household too. His foster mom says he is a super sweet guy and is perfectly behaved, clean in the home with no accidents, and sleeps quietly both in his crate and all night long. Willy may be a good choice for apartment living too.  If you like big greyhounds, Willy could be your guy!

Willy was adopted by the Shappard family in 2017 and they described him as the best dog they have ever had. He was loved by everyone who met him. He passed away in August of 2020 due to mast cell tumors on his liver and spleen. He will be missed.

Kaage (Augusta, GA)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Keener, 5.21.11

Romeo is a tall black male. He is young and just turned two Jan 1st. Romeo is very loving and wants to be with people. He did great meeting folks at his first meet and greet over the weekend. He still looks a little rough because he arrived with lots of fleas which caused hair loss and a skin infection. They have been successfully treated but he needs some time for his hair to come back in. In a month or two Romeo will have a beautiful glossy black coat. So far he is doing great in his foster home and gets along well with all family members human and greyhound. He has picked up on house rules very quickly. Romeo has a very high prey drive so is not going to be able to live with cats or small dogs. He mistakes anything small for a squirrel or a bunny and wants to chase it. He loves to play in sprinklers and will bite at the water and has a great time as you can see in his photos.

Romeo was adopted by the Keener family in 2011 and had a wonderful life with them for 9 years. He passed away 8/15/20 from Lymphoma. He will be missed.

Red Bull just arrived from Orlando. He is a small red male racing at just 66lbs. He is a friendly, happy and waggy but calm and well behaved. He is a littermate to a couple of dogs we placed Snowflake Henry and Anderson Cooper! Half brother to Cute Candle, My Favorite, Jojo Girl, Nancy G Gracie, Fabulous Fox, Raine Henry and New York Aster. His birthday is 8/10/10 so he is 2 years old. He is being fostered in Augusta and is settling in well to his foster home with kids and small dogs. He follows the child in the house around and seems to really like kids. He eats well and potties well on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard if he was leash walked to potty. He crates well and is quiet in the crate so may be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse living.

Red was adopted in 2012 and his name was changed to Henry. He had a long happy life and passed away as the result of Hemangiosarcoma in August of 2020. Henry smiling face will be missed by his family.

Fostered by (location):
will be Elrod, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Ahl Family 4/13/19

Army is a very tall guy that came in from the Lester Raines Kennel at Orange Park. We were very excited to get him because we just placed his mom Lee Lonnie! He raced all of his 34 races at Orange Park in FL. He mainly raced at the lower levels but did get as high as B level briefly. His racing weight is listed as 79 but he is very tall and lanky for that weight and is one of the taller guys we have seen. He turned 3 on September 24th. He doesn't have very many races for his age and it looks like he took several breaks from racing: One after his first race October 7th of 2017 until mid December and another from May 5th to June 3rd of 2018. Then from June 7th to December 9th 2018. So it looks like he had some kind of reoccurring injury. Looking at all the bumps and falls he had, it looks like he was very clumsy due to his size. He did heal up completely and went back to racing in December, but was slow, so was retired after 4 races. Army's sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Lee Lonnie. Army is a sweet, friendly guy that travels well and seems to kennel pretty well. He has made just a little noise occasionally in his kennel, but slept through the first night without making a peep. He liked the small kids he met and seemed to do well with the small dog he met too. He was interested in the cats at first and did a lot of sniffing, but lost interest on his own without even getting a slap from the cat. We only listed him as trainable because there was some initial interest in the cat. Army was fostered with cats and did very well with them. He jumps in and out of a SUV fine. He doesn't like to potty on leash so probably will need a fenced yard. He has decent leash manners and doesn't pull but does go from side to side to check things out. His foster home describes him as a lovable dofus. Army can be dramatic like so many greyhounds. He will give the greyhound scream of death sometimes if he doesn't like something, like having his nails done. He just needs someone that doesn't buy into his drama. He is tall enough that his back touches the top of the 48 inch long crate so he needs an extra tall 48" long crate or a 54" long dane sized crate. Army was in a home for a couple of months but he didn't do well there as an only dog. They called him Harvey. He is a sensitive guy that picks up on his owner's anxiety so needs a happy confident owner so he can be the confident happy guy he normally is. 

Army was adopted by the Ahl Family and was only with them 16 months before passing away way due to Osteosarcoma. He was much too young, just a month shy of his 5th birthday. He will be missed.

Washy is a red female that just came in from a farm in Arkansas. She was a fantastic racer racing 162 races at the top AA levels at both Southland and Wheeling. She also was in some stakes races. Washy retired from racing in July of 2016 and went back to the farm to become a mom. She had two puppies in 2016 AMF Keep Wishing and AMF You Wish who are already retired and placed in adoption groups. Those are the only two puppies registered so far but she may have other litters that are under two and not registered or racing yet. Washy is a tiny 55lb girl. She is calm and friendly. She crates very quietly and seems good on leash. She cooperated very nicely during her bath and leaned against her foster mom and rubbed her nose on her. She jumped right up into her crate in the van on the trip home. Washy's sire is Kiowa WW Brother and her dam is AMF Push. She will turn 8 on December 15th. She passed her cat test without much interest and also seemed fine with the small dog she met. She liked the kids she met too.

Washy was adopted in 2019 and sadly only was with her family less than a year before she passed away in July of 2020. She will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Jones family of Pendleton SC 2/8/15

Surfin is a small brindle male that raced at just 64lbs. He has the most beautiful shiny, dark red, brindle coat and cute ears that stand up all the time. He is very cute! He raced at Daytona Beach and then Birmingham AL. Most of his races were in Birmingham. He was pretty good getting up to the top A level of racing and being competitive enough to win at that level. He ran 113 races before quitting in the middle of his last race after being checked by another dog in June of 2014. His sire is Surf Lorian and his dam is JD She Hottie. Surfin turned 3 on August 10th. Surfin can be just a little timid at first in new situations but seems to love people and was happily wagging his tail at the vet clinic as soon as he got there.  Surfin is a pretty calm guy but does enjoy running a lap or two in the backyard. He did pass his cat and small dog test so should be fine in a home with either. He seemed to like a 7 year old boy that he met so we think he would be good with kids that age or older. He hasn't been tested with very small kids yet.

Surf was adopted by the Jones Family in 2015 and renamed Linus. Linus loved to run and chatter and was a talkative guy when he wanted something. He loved being sneaky. Linus had a wonderful retirement in his home and got lots of loves, snuggles and hugs. Linus passed away in 2020. He will be missed and never forgotten.

Kitty is a gorgeous sable fawn with dark guard hairs in her coat over light fawn fur. Very unusual and striking. She has a lot of natural eyeliner. She retired in February from the Wheeling WV race track and we picked her up from the farm she went to when she retired. Kitty's sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Huska Damsel. She will celebrate her 3rd birthday on June 22nd. Kitty was pretty shy when she first arrived but she has become a very outgoing friendly dog very quickly in her foster home. Now she greets strangers that come over happily and chooses to interact with them and follow them around. She walks perfectly on leash and travels well. She just gets into a vehicle and lays down for the entire trip. She crates quietly and potties very nicely on leash so may be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse without a fenced yard. She passed her cat test with no interest other than a casual sniff so should be fine to live with cats or small dogs. She seems like a very calm, laid back girl that should make an easy addition. She even was fine being outside when a chainsaw was being used and didn't seem phased by the loud noise. Kitty has developed a very silly fun personality. She loves to play with toys and can keep herself entertained by squeaking a toy and playing with it all by herself but would rather have a person join in the game with her. So far she really hasn't wanted to join in games with the other dogs in her foster home though.

Kitty has been diagnosed with SLO which is an auto immune disease that causes her toe nails to fall off. We have started the treatment of Fish oils and Niacinamide (b-vitamin). Her nails are growing back. She is likely to require continued vitamin supplements to keep her SLO from flaring up again. This is something that we see in greyhounds sometimes. She has returned to being able to run in the yard pretty normally now but when she has a flare up and loses her nails she will be tender footed and won't be able to go for long walks and won't be able to play until they heal up again. Fortunately the supplements to keep this in check aren't expensive and seem to be effective.

Kitty was adopted 2013 and lived 7 years with her family before passing away in June of 2020. She will be missed.

Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Glymph)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Adams, 2.4.11

Sissy is a small outgoing girl that loves people. She is a happy little girl that gives hugs and grins when she is happy. She has been home acclimated already. Her foster home says she is just a joy to have around and is very well behaved. Sissy has lived with cats for 6 months but played too rough with a kitten so would need to be placed only with other small animals that are very clear about not wanting to play with her. As tiny as she is, there is just too much of a size difference between cats and tiny dogs to allow them to play with a larger dog. Sissy would prefer a home with no children or older quiet children. She lived with a couple of very young children and didn't care for their level of activity and noise after a few months.

Sissy was adopted by Joan Adams in 2011 and had a wonderful life. She passed away in June of 2020 at the age of 13 after suddenly being unable to stand up. Her owner says there will never be another dog like Sissy. A one of a kind for sure and so sweet and gentle.

Noralie just arrived from the Kansas Farm where she has been living since she retired from racing. She was a great racer that traveled around and raced at a lot of tracks: Flagler, Naples Ft. Myers, Southland and Pensacola. She was consistently a top level A racer and even competed in big Stakes Races. So when she was retired she went back to the farm to be a mom. Her pups are too young to be registered yet so we aren't sure how many she has. Noralie raced at 62lbs and just turned 6 on January 6th. She is a bouncy, happy girl that loves people and is very outgoing. She is playful and doesn't act her age at all. She needs some work on walking on leash because she does pull. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and we placed her mom Flying Northern. More as we get to know this gorgeous girl. 

Noralie was adopted in May of 2017 and lived happily with her family until she passed away in May of 2020 just 3 years later at the age of 9.

Big Ugly is big but is definitely not ugly. He is a gorgeous rare blue brindle. His owner/trainer jokingly called him that because he was the opposite. He is a big guy racing at 80+lbs. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 17th. His sire is Get Over and we actually adopted out his dam MRL Courageous last year. Big Ugly is a sweet friendly guy that loves to swim and run. The farm he was raised on has a lake in the middle of it so he is one of the rare greyhounds that actually knows how to swim. He raced at Tri State in WV for a short time but was at Orange Park in Jacksonville Fl for the rest of his career of 67 races. Big Ugly had one of our previous adopters waiting on him to retire so was adopted just as soon as he was vetted.

Salt or Big Ugly was adopted by the Ketchie Brenot family in 2013. He was with them until he passed away in May of 2020. He will be missed very much.

Suzanne is a gorgous, white girl with red spots that raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Gable Ton. She just turned 5 on May 6th. Suzanne raced 168 races at Tri State in WV and Orange Park in Florida. She was a good racer, racing mostly at A level. She is a friendly girl with ears that sometimes stand straight up when she is excited. She seems pretty confident and curious and is very friendly and sweet. She did not pass her cat test at the track so needs a home with no kitties. She is fine with small dogs and is living in a foster home with a couple of them. She is a happy, friendly, well behaved girl that her foster dad described as "a sweet old soul". She does complain a bit about being left alone in a crate so probably wouldn't do well as an apartment dog. She is very smart and figured out the doggy door in her foster home right away. She gets along great with other male and female dogs in her foster home so would be a good choice for a family with several other dogs. She would be an easy addition for a first time greyhound owner and has been in a foster home for a little while so is already home acclimated. This is a great gilr and so pretty!!!

Suzie was adopted by the Collins family in 2014. She lived a long happy life and passed away in May of 2020 at the age of 11. She will be missed.

Emma is a lighter brindle female that is on the small side at 58lbs. She has cute little ears that stand straight up when she sees something she is interested in. She traveled well and was quiet in her crate all night. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home so seems like she will be OK in a home with small dogs. She is much to interested in chasing cats to be able to live with cats however. She is already great on leash and doesn't pull at all. She eats well and didn't even skip a meal with the stress of moving from the track to a new home. When you talk to her she wags her tail in happiness. Seems like she is going to be a great girl. More as we get to know her.

Emma was adopted in May of 2011 by the Gardner family. They had her until she was 13. She crossed the bridge on 4/15/20 after her hips gave out on her and she was unable to get up. Emma was an amazing, smart and very loving girl who had a long happy life.

Fostered by (location):
Columbia, SC (Ng)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Pendergraft, 12.03.09

Babbagnoosh is a sweet, small, laid back boy that loves to play with toys. He is very shy and takes a long time to warm up to people, especially men, so would do best with at least one female in the family. His foster family says he is very loving once he warms up and is one of the sweetest fosters they have had. Babba is likely to be fearful at first in any new home for the first month or two and will respond to quick movements by fleeing to his crate. He needs an understanding family that is OK with this and will not give up on him. As shy as he is, he has never tried to snap and hasn't even growled in fear. He is a sweet gentle guy that will warm up if he is given enough time. Babba is definitely not a dog that will happily greet you at the door at first but he can become that after a few months. He gets along great with other dogs, both large & small and seems to be less nervous with other confident dogs around as a good example. His dream home would have a confident friendly dog in it for him to be pals with. He crates perfectly and will "talk" when he needs to go out. His foster mom says it is the funniest sound she has ever heard - it's as if he is trying to form actual words. Babba will do best with a fenced in yard as new things spook him while out on a leash. If you are willing to give this sweet guy plenty of time to warm up to you then he will be forever devoted and very loving. Babba would do best in a quiet, low-key home without active small children. Although he poses no threat to them, their quick movements and noise seem to make him uncomfortable and he will retreat to the safety of his crate. Babba tested cat tolerant. Because of his shy nature Babba has been waiting on a home for a long time so has had plenty of house experience and has done well with his potty training and house manners in his foster home. Please consider giving this very special little guy your heart.

Baba was adopted by the Pendergraft family in 2009. He had a long happy life and passed away April 5th of 2020 a few months shy of 14 years old.

Fostered by (location):
Lindenfeld in Westminster SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by Lindenfeld, 1.30.2014

Altamonte Al had a very successful racing career and was quite a big star at the track. Quite a few people came to tell him goodbye when he retired. He raced at a pretty thin 74lbs and looks better closer to 80lbs. Al has been in an adoptive home since April but they ended up having to move out of the country and aren't able to take him with them so decided to rehome him. He is already home acclimated! Al's date of birth is 11/12/08 so he just celebrated his 5th birthday. He is a happy, goofy guy that has personality to spare. So much so that he was a favorite with everyone he met at the track from lead outs to bettors. HIs trainers and the track personel had a hard time letting him go because they were so attached to Al and consider him a pet. His picture is up on the wall at the track.

Al is quite the snuggler and even though he is a big guy he is likely to want to get in your lap. He loves to get up and lay beside you or even in your lap while watching TV. Al loves toys and will throw them up and play with them himself and loves to chase them when they are thrown for him. He loves to go for walks and potties well on leash. Al was living in a townhouse in his previous home and did fine without a fenced yard. He is a higher energy greyhound and loves to play so might do better with a fenced yard to run around in, unless his family was willing to do walks or jogs with him so that he got enough exercise. He has too high of a prey drive to live with cats. He loves other greyhounds though and larger calmer dogs but just doesn't care for smaller dogs of other breeds that bounce around him and get in his face. His sire is Tony's Oracle which makes him a relative of quite a few other dogs we have placed. Al is the whole package. Just stunning to look at, loving and already home acclimated.

Al was in a wonderful home from 2014 to April of 2020 when he passed away due to Osteosarcoma. RIP Al you will be missed.

Adoption Status: Not Available Due to Advanced Cancer

Pluto just arrived. He was placed by another group and has been in a loving home for years with his housemate Riley McBones. His owner is having health issues that he won't recover from that force him to give up both dogs. Pluto and Riley don't pay a lot of attention to each other so we think they would be fine to place in separate homes. Pluto is a medium sized male that raced at 75lbs. He turned 8 on September 18th. His sire is I Will Make It and his dam is Barts FocalPoint. Pluto raced at Sarasota and Pensacola and got up to the top A level. He ran 40 races and his last race was June 1st of 2014 so he has been in a home since shortly after that. Pluto was not eating well at the kennel he was boarded at before we got him. Our vet was concerned when he came in and ran a lot of blood work and did some other testing. Sadly the results came back that Pluto has advanced cancer and the vet says that he is already feeling bad. We will help him cross the bridge soon so that he doesn't suffer.

Rich is a gorgeous 75lb fawn male with a small white blaze on his face and white toes and chest. He was a good racer that had a long career of 225 races. He just retired from the Birmingham Race Course and also raced at Pensacola and Southland tracks. He was a top A level racer and did compete in a big stakes race for the top racers at that track so he was a very fast guy. He just turned 5 on June 26th. Rich is a very friendly happy guy that seems confident and easy going. He was initially curious about the cats he met but lost interest after he got slapped. He may be OK in a home with a very confident cat with supervision and training. No timid cats though. He did fine with the small dog he met and tried to get him to play with him. Rich is pretty good on leash and seemed to travel well.  His sire is PG Tiger and his dam is Whispering Pines. More as we get to know him.

Stani is a big sweet girl with a lot of personality. She raced at 67lbs and is stocky and muscular and probably closer to 70lbs now. She has a beautiful, shiny black coat. Stani is happy, waggy and silly. She will turn 4 on December 10th. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Nikita Design. Stani raced 49 races and Flagler and Naples Ft Myers and was quickly up to the top A level and even competed in Stakes races. She had a career ending injury in April of 2014. She had a broken bone in her hock so she was sent back to a farm in Oklahoma to be a mom. Her leg has long healed and seems fine now. It doesn't prevent her from running around and playing normally. She doesn't have a noticeable limp, but may not be the best choice for dog sports or long hikes because those may aggravate an old injury. Stani doesn't have any pups listed on the database yet but if she had any they would be too young to register yet. Stani seems like a confident girl and likes to stand next to you leaning on you for love. Very sweet girl and gorgeous with that flashy white chest and beautiful coat. Stani was initially very interested in the cat until it slapped her. Then she play-bowed to it showing she was no threat. When that earned her another slap she wouldn't go anywhere near the cat again. She did fine with the small dog in her foster home and a toddler too. More as we get to know this stunning girl.

Stani was adopted by the Kolat Family in 2015 and lived another 5 years with them. She passed away of a heart tumor at the end of January in 2020. She will be missed by her family.

Hyatt is a small red male that raced at 69lbs. He just turned 4 on May 1st. He is quite the traveler racing at Gulf, Sarasota, Ebro and Dubuque. He has 91 races listed. His sire is Gable Oscar and his dam is Lil Cash Advance. He has done well with the toddler in his foster home and the small dog next door. He needs some work on his leash skills but is getting better already. He has been a little loud in his crate so may not be a good dog for an apartment. He is doing well settling in to his foster home and turned into a favorite foster very fast. Hyatt is a friendly guy that likes adults and children. He is SO cute with all that eyeliner and those eyebrows! Hyatt would be a wonderful dog for someone that would like to compete in obedience or agility. He does a natural flip finish when you say his name! He wants to please and seems like he is willing to work and do just about anything for attention. He has a higher energy level for a greyhound and that is important for a dog that you want to do training with. He is a fun guy that would also be a good hiking or jogging partner. He is very loving and wants to be a big lap dog. He is all about getting attention and love.

Hyatt was adopted by the Georgian Family in 2013 and renamed Leo. Leo had a wonderful life with them and his adopted brother Henry for the next 7 years. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 1/27/2020 due to sudden heart failure. He will be missed. His photo is their favorite of him snuggling with them.

Bunny is a young 7 month old puppy that broke one of her legs while playing with her littermates. Her owners asked us to take her after surgery to plate the leg. She came through surgery fine and was transported to our group. She is healing well and is expected to make a full recovery. Bunny's sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is TDS Molly. We don't typically get very many greyhound puppies so this is a rare chance to get one. They are much different than the calm retired racers. Like any puppy they need supervision, training and plenty of exercise. As soon as she is healed and well enough to run around again she will need a fenced yard to play in. Bunny enjoys playing with a small dog in her foster home and loves children so should do well in a home with either.

Bunny was adopted by the Lyda Family of Easley 4/16/14. She was found dead in her yard of unknown causes in 2018. Another greyhound in the same home was relinquished to us a year later with heartworms that hadn't been treated. That could have been the cause of her death at such a young age.

Breeze originally came to us from the Ebro race track. She was a good racer that raced an amazing 234 races, at Sarasota, Sanford Orlando and Ebro. She was a top level A racer that raced at 60lbs. Breeze is a littermate to dogs we already placed and we have waited quite awhile to get her. She turned 5 on July 14th and is one of the rare greyhounds that raced passed 5 years old. Most retire earlier. Her sire is Lonesome Cry and her dam is Jewels Tango. Breeze is a friendly, happy girl that is confident and social. Breeze passed her cat test and is living in a foster home with cats and small dogs. Breeze had a lot of bad teeth when she arrived and had to have all but 5 removed but she has no problem eating. Breeze is very quiet in her crate and potties on leash well so might be a good apartment dog. She is very sweet and gives kisses. Breeze was in a home for a couple of months but didn't do well there as an only dog and was showing signs of separation anxiety. She has been fine in her foster home where she has other dogs around her all the time, so she it looks like she just needs a home with another dog to be OK. This is a super sweet girl and so pretty!

Breeze was adopted by the Barnes family of Myrtle Beach 7/14/15. She crossed the rainbow bridge in January of 2020 due to Lymphoma. She was a one of a kind and her family misses her very much.

Katie was originally placed by our group when she was young in April of 2007. At that time she was called "Gully". She was named Katie and returned in 2008 due to a serious health problem of one of her owners. She was rehomed with her latest owner in April of 2008. Her current owner is choosing to re-homing Katie at 12 years old because she doesn't think Katie is happy after a divorce, move and schedule change. Katie just turned 12 on March 19th. Katie raced only 4 races at the now closed Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida. She finished toward the back of the pack in all her races, so she was retired young at just 2 years old. We had Katie checked by our vet to be sure she was healthy. Other than a corn on one of her feet, that causes a limp on hard surfaces, she got a clean bill of health. She has lived with cats and small dogs so should be fine to live with both. She is actually going back to her original foster home and they have already decided to keep her, so she isn't available at this time. Katie travels well and wants nothing more than a soft couch to lay on. She is very laid back at her age and just is happy to nap most of the day. She is friendly with everyone. Her sire is Trojan Cruze and her dam is RK Goin Topressu. Her photo is one we had from when she was young.

Jeserell is a bouncy, happy little girl. Her tail wags furiously if she even thinks you are paying attention to her or looking her direction, in fact she wags her whole body. She is very friendly, loves people and gives plenty of kisses. She passed her cat and small dog test so should be able to live with either. She is very food motivated and will eat well in or out of her crate. She loves her crate and will often choose to lay in there with the door open. She loves toys and will collect them all in her crate. She never has torn up a toy though, just carries them around. She follows her foster mom around the house curiously but not in a too needy way that could be annoying. She is a pretty confident girl that is likely to be the more dominant female in a pack of dogs. Jezerell is such a love bug that you just have to love her back. Jeserell is a littermate to ThatsWhyURThere who is one of our other recent adoptions. She is a half sister to Jet, Drama, and Cracker Barrel many of our other already adopted hounds. Her father seems to throw some exceptionally nice dogs.  

Jeserell was adopted by the Greene Family in 2011. She was re-named Aggie and had a lot of other nicknames too: Iggy, Ags Mags, Agatha, and Dragon Breath. She ended up being a performer with the Hounds of East Fairhaven and performed at Renaissance Festivals. She was a friendly funny girl. She crossed the bridge at 11 years old in November of 2019 due to an aggressive cancer in her jaw.

Bear is a very large boy that raced at 80lbs. He just celebrated his 3rd birthday on May 24th. He is nearly all white with 3 small brindle spots on his side, tail and one ear. Bear loves everyone and gives kisses. He has an awesome, happy, friendly personality and is very goofy and silly. He follows his family around and can always be found close by if not laying at your feet. Not much bothers him and he loves everyone. Although he loves playing with kids and being around them most of the time, he has shown that he really doesn't like kids in his face or bothering him when he is laying down. Because of that we think Bear will do best in a home without small kids. He seems like he has a little too much prey drive toward cats to be able to live with them and did not pass his cat test at the track. He has been fine with a small, white dog that lived in one of his foster homes though so he seems like will be good in a home with small dogs. Bear corrects easily and all you have to do is tell him not to do something once or twice and he stops for good. This is a stunning guy with such a great personality!

Bear was adopted in 2012 and lived until 2018. He enjoyed camping and hiking with his family. RIP Bear.

Stinger is a huge, gorgeous, white and brindle male that raced a couple of races in Abilene and was moved to Sanford Orlando where he retired from in October of last year. He is an extra large male that raced at 94lbs and has 29 races to his credit. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Super C Queen. He celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 10th. He has been in 2 homes since October of last year. He was returned to us the first time because his family was expecting twins. They didn't feel he will be good with young children because he startles easily when asleep. He did live with a 10 year old boy though and loved him. He is a friendly. happy guy that likes people and is very well mannered in a home. He is good with small dogs but is not good with cats so needs a home with no cats. Stinger was adopted by a second family that didn't have a fenced yard. They found that he really prefers his privacy and likes to find that perfect spot to do his business which didn't work out well on leash and let to long unproductive walks and a few accidents. Stinger was also pretty excited and distracted by the rabbits and small critters wandering in the area he was supposed to go potty in which contributed to the problem. So Stinger is looking for another home with a fenced yard where he can be comfortable.

Stinger was adopted by the Burns family in September of 2014. He crossed the bridge due to Osteosarcoma on December 9th 2019. He was one of the very special ones and will be missed.

Tune Town raced at the Naples Ft Meyers track but never won a race. Her sire is Jack Whistler and her dam is More Excuses. She was born on Christmas of 2006. She is a sweet girl who LOVES people. Tune is stunning with an unusually glossy, mahogany red and black brindle coat. She can be vocal when crated away from people so she would not be a good apartment dog. She potties on a leash so she might do OK without a fenced yard. She loved playing with the small dog in her first foster home so she should be good with dogs of all sizes. She loves people best, though, and would probably do best with a family with someone who is home a lot. She likes to go for rides and passed her cat test.

Tune lived 10 years with her family before crossing the bridge in November of 2019 just shy of her 13th birthday. Her mom says that even though she never won a race she won her heart the first time she laid eyes on her. Tune was adopted to be a companion to a greyhound that was lonely after his buddy passed. Since she has outlived 3 adopted brothers. Her family is lost without her as is her remaining adopted brother.

Charlie Sheen fans, here is your chance to cuddle with him on your couch! Charlie is a gorgeous, tall, 75lb, black male that will turn 7 on December 27th. He retired from the Naples Ft Myers Track in May of 2016. He also raced at Palm Beach, Flagler and Mardi Gras tracks. Charlie Sheen was a very good racer and was the 2014 Celebrity Champion at Naples Ft Myers, he was also the 2014 Palm Beach He's My Man Finalist and the 2013 Palm Beach Dick Andrews Futurity finalist. He raced 170 races. Charlie's sire is Yahoo Omar and his dam is Flying Lakeside. This guy was a champion. Charlie has a beautiful glossy coat and is very handsome. He has ears that both go straight up when he is excited. Charlie only ever had one accident in his foster home and is very well behaved. He is not destructive and doesn't get into anything when he is left home alone. The worst thing he has ever done is to tear up a napkin or two. He is good with other dogs and trainable with cats. He hasn't been around kids much but always is happy to see them on outings. 

Charlie was adopted in 2016 but his owner was unable to keep him after a couple of years. There was a family nearby that had just lost a greyhound that wanted to take him so they got him in 2018. He had a wonderful home for a year until he crossed the bridge in late 2019 due to a large tumor on his heart.

Maverick is an older gentleman that is looking for a new home because his previous owner died suddenly. He lived peacefully with 5 other greyhounds there, that have all been placed already, so we do fine in a home with other dogs. Maverick will turn 9 on May 24th so qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Maverick has been retired and in his home since Dec of 2011. He was known as 'Satin' at the track had a very brief unsuccessful racing career of 23 races and only ever won one of those. He actually stopped running in the middle of one race. He raced a few races at Palm Beach, then a few at Naples Ft Myers, Flagler and finally finished up at Orange Park in Jacksonville. His owner tried to find a track that he would be competitive at, but Maverick just didn't have his heart into chasing a lure, so was retired young. He was initially placed by the adoption kennel at the track in Jacksonville and was returned to them when his owner passed away. We picked him up from them on a recent track trip. Maverick raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized male. His sire is the very famous Dodgem By Design and that is where he inherited his cute floppy ears. His dam is Surprise Plan. Maverick is a pretty calm guy that still has very short bursts of playful energy. He has good house manners and is friendly and loving. He is in good health and has had excellent care by his previous owner. Maverick likes kids and has been fine with the small dogs and cats he has met so should be good to live with them. He did live with a number of other dogs in his previous home and gets along well with others. This is a super sweet boy that just wants some love and petting.

Maverick was only in his home for a year and a half before he crossed the bridge in October of 2019. RIP Maverick

Gambino is an extra large, black guy that is very friendly. He is tied with one other dog to be the biggest dog we have ever adopted out with a racing weight of 98lbs. He is pretty calm for a young guy and well behaved. He does need some training on leash because he pulls some and is pretty strong. He is a gentle giant though and seems to be very sweet and gets along well with others. He retired from Derby Lane without an offical race. He did some training races there but they decided he was too big to be a successful racer. He seems pretty smart and is picking up on house manners quickly. He crates nicely and quietly. He likes people and seemed to like the children he has met too. He did good with small dogs that walked past him at the recent meet and greet. He still needs tested with cats.

Gambino developed seizures shortly after his adoption in 2013. They were able to be managed with medication until 2019 when they were no longer able to be controlled and he passed away. This big guy was loved by so many and will be missed.

Chopin came to us from the Birmingham Race Course. He also raced a race at Southland in Arkansas. He is a pup of Dave the Dog who is a famous dog that retired and lives in our area. His dam is Tech Bomb. He was born on September 27th 2006. Chopin didn't race, long only 14 races are listed. Boy is this a handsome guy! Chopin is very outgoing and loves everyone he meets. He LOVES to go for rides and will hop right in and may even try to help you open the door. He seems like he is going to be a fun guy because he has loads of personality. He needs some work on his leash manners because he is very strong and very excited about seeing everything. Nothing seems to bother him, even new things. He takes everything in stride. This is one very happy go lucky guy. He does have a pretty strong prey drive and didn't pass his initial cat test. We need to do more testing with small dogs and kids.

Chops was adopted in 2010 and had a long happy life with his family. He passed away in 2019 and will be missed.

Diamond just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race track. Both of her races listed were at Derby Lane and she came in last in both of them so was moved to Daytona Beach in hopes she would do better there. She did not show much promise there either in schooling so was retired very young. Diamond won't turn two until February 3rd. She is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 52lbs. She has silver fur between her black brindle stripes so is beautiful and unique. Her sire is Mankato and her dam is Keeper Bow Show. Diamond's trainer says she is very friendly and just wants to cuddle. She is going to make a very loving pet. She is a very laid back girl for one so young. She loves to have a good run every now and then but mostly just wants to snuggle. She is a pretty quiet girl so may be OK for apartment living. Diamond passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. More as we get to know her.

Diamond was adopted in 2015 and was renamed Bella. She crossed the bridge in 2019.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Weidmans from Hephzibah , GA 2/14/15

Ashley is an older girl that is being returned because her owner is having a baby and moving. She has been with her family since 2010. Ashley is a brindle girl that is around 60lbs. She will turn 10 August 18th. Her sire is Matt's Comet and her dam is RJ Blown Away. She has 10 races listed starting out at Southland in Arkansas in schooling in 2007 but was quickly moved to Florida for the rest of her races. She didn't show much promise so was quickly retired. Ashley is a very shy girl that is likely to be pretty overwhelmed by losing her family and having to move to a new location and adjust to a new family. She will be checked over by our vet to be sure she is healthy when she comes in and will have a full dental and anything she needs. Because she is an older girl she will qualify for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Ashley did pass her cat and small dog test. She has not been around kids much but has done OK with the ones she has seen. Because she is a timid girl she would probably do better in a home with quiet kids rather than loud rowdy ones. More after we get her. This is a photo of her taken when she first arrived years ago. She has more white on her face now.

Dutchess had a long happy life and passed away in 2019. She will be missed.

Sage is a very tall leggy girl that was the tallest dog on this dog haul, even taller than the boys. She raced at 71lbs. She is 3 and won't celebrate her 4th birthday until December 1st. Her sire is the famous English racer Balligari and her dam is Elysium. We adopted out her her littermate Happy Stutz who has been a sweet, nearly perfect guy. So far she seems just as sweet as her brother. She has a beautiful bright red coat and a white chest and some white toes. She has ears that go straight up sometimes just like her mom's. She has 78 races to her credit racing at Wheeling in WV, and Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando in Fl most recently. She had a minor injury in April and was rehabbed at the track by her trainer before they sent her to us. She is not limping and we can't tell that she even had an injury now. She seems like a calm, friendly girl. She traveled well on the way up from the track and quietly settled into her crate when she arrived. So far she has been well behaved and quiet in her crate. She is playful and loves to play with toys. She really wants to please so the smallest correction works to stop any mistake. She passed her small dog test with a boston terrier but she is definitely not going to be cat safe. She was very excited about the cat she met and even a smack by kitty claws didn't make her back off.

Sage was adopted by the Chapman family in 2013 and passed away in October of 2019 just before her 10th birthday. RIP Sage you will be missed.

Blade is a sweet, well behaved boy that is pretty calm.

He seems to like kids and chose to go up to children at a PetSmart meet and greet. He is a friendly sweet little guy. His sire is Swahili Eile and his dam is To Shy to Say. We got Blade very young and he didn't have much of a race career but did go through some training to race.

Blade was rehomed with the Oldman family in 2012 and had a happy life with them until he passed away in September of 2019. He was the sweetest dog they ever had and will be missed.

Gladiator just retired from the Orlando track. He is a gorgeous, red brindle male with white toes, chest and white tail tip that raced at 75lbs. He just turned 4 on July 14th. Gladiator was a good racer that raced in 100 races. He actually competed in a couple of stakes races and raced at 7 tracks. He is a happy, friendly guy but is a calm, well behaved guy too. Gladiator's sire is the famous Craigie Whistler. He passed his cat and small dog tests at the track but did show a little interest at first in the outdoor cats at his foster home so we listed him as trainable with cats. He has done great on his potty training in his foster home and responds very well to the word "No" the rare times that he needs to be corrected. He did great with a house full of visiting children last week and seems to like kids. He likes to play with toys by throwing them up a few times. Then he is ready for another nap. He loves to lay outside in the sun. Gladiator seems like he might be a good watch dog because he will sometimes alert you when he sees his own reflection in a window at night. He is pretty sure that other dog is up to no good. He is normally quiet in his crate and crates willingly. He is a very good boy and seems to have adjusted to life in a home with no problem at all. He is a great guy!

Gladiator was adopted in 2012 and had a wonderful life with his family until he passed away in September of 2019. RIP Glad you are very missed.

Dash is a red male that just arrived from the track in Orlando. He is a sweet, very calm, guy that never caused any trouble at the track according to his trainers. They felt he would be a very easy, sweet dog for just about anyone. He is a mid sized male and weighed 71lbs at the vet. His birthday is Sept 7 2008. So far Dash has been very quiet and very calm at his foster home. He doesn't make a peep in his crate and sleeps thought the night. He seems to walk pretty good on leash already and didn't have any trouble the first time he tried steps. He passed his cat and small dog test with flying colors too. He loves people and was a big hit at his first meet and greet calmly going up to each person and leaning into them wanting to snuggle. He never got nervous or excited even in the busy Expo center with all the people, noises and things going on. He just kept greeting each person as if it was his job. He was very gentle with kids and really seemed to like them. If you want a handsome, very laid back guy Dash may be the one for you. He is one of the more laid back 3 year olds we have met.

Dash was adopted in April of 2012 and was with them until he crossed the bridge in mid 2019. He will be missed.

Dalma came from the Jacksonville Fl race track. She raced 132 races at 62lbs. She raced most of her races at Orange Park but also raced at Derby Lane. She is a pretty black girl that celebrated her 4th birthday on Feb 1st. Her sire is Daddy Warbarks and her dam is Zoomn Cheri. Dalma's last race was in January. She had a couple of seizures at the track and her owner decided it was best to retired her. She was at the track kennel from January until May waiting on a group that could take her and didn't have any more seizures even without medication to prevent them. The stress of the move from the track triggered another seizure so we put her on medication to prevent more and she has had no seizures since she started the medication. The medication is inexpensive and she may not even need to be on medication once she is in a permanent home since high excitement and stress seem to trigger her seizures. Dalma is a sweet, happy girl that is very very loving. She will curl up in your lap and loves to snuggle with people. She is very friendly with people and gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home. Her current foster home would love to dog sit for her after adoption if she is adopted in the area. Dalma did pass her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. She likes the small children in her foster home. Dalma does potty nicely on leash now so may be OK for apartment living.

Dalma was adopted by the Searles family of Summerfield NC 11/2/14. She had a wonderful home with them until she passed away in 2019.

Potzy raced in Florida at just 66lbs so he is a smaller male. He was a pretty successful racer that raced until nearly his 4th birthday, which was on October 7th. Potzy is very cute, mostly white with a few brindle patches and some freckles in his white fur. Potzy passed his cat test but was a little interested in the cat at first so will need some supervision with new cats at first. He passed his small dog test and is living in a foster home with dogs and cats. He is a friendly, happy guy that is very devoted to people and wants to be with his family doing whatever they are doing. He isn't shy or nervous and is very outgoing and loving. Potzy has great house manners and picked up on potty training without a problem. Potzy doesn't like his crate much and is vocal when left in one so would not be the best choice for an apartment or townhouse. He has been quiet and well behaved when left out of crate, even by himself.

Potzy was adopted by the Kerr family 5/27/12 he lived until 2019 when he passed away at the age of 12. He will be missed.

Gaby just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track and was raised on the Bolton Farm near the track. It is a smaller beautiful farm where the dogs get lots of one on one attention. Gaby Is a pretty red girl that raced 179 races at 63lbs. She was a good racer, racing much of her career at the top A level there. Her sire is the famous Bella Infrared and her dam is Waubun Brenda. Gaby will turn 5 on June 8th. Gaby is a friendly, happy girl. She passed her cat test easily and seemed like she already knew that cats have claws and refused to go near the kitty. She is also fine with small dogs. Gaby is very sweet and will sit and lean up against the front of your legs for attention. She is a waggy, happy girl that doesn't seem fazed by anything new so seems like she will do well very fast with her new family. She is very loving and just loves to be close to her humans. She did like the small kids she met briefly but has not been around small kids long term yet. She can complain a bit about being in her kennel, so probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog. Gaby is adapting very well to her foster home and is such a beautiful sweet girl!

Gaby was adopted by the Reich family 4/18/18. She was renamed Ginger. Her time with them was too short. She crossed the bridge in 2019.
