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.

Adoption Status: adopted by the Wedmore family of Simpsonville 8/19/14

KB just arrived from the Orange Park track in Jacksonville but she also raced at Tri-State in WV and in Abilene KS. She raced 74 races and raced at 62lbs. She turned 3 on October 7th and her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is PTL Banana Cake. KB passed her cat test at the track and did great with a small dog in her foster home so should be able to live in a home with cats and small dogs. She traveled well on the trip to the vet and mostly just laid down in the van. KB is a pretty, calm girl but does enjoy playing with the other dogs. She is good on leash and is a very, sweet, happy, outgoing girl. She was an easy well behaved girl so we gave her to a first time foster home. This is a great gal.

KB was a great girl and loved very much until she passed away in May of 2017.

Persic (Charlotte, NC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Persic family of Charlotte NC 2/2/15

Faith is a small girl that raced at 55lbs. She is a light fawn that turned 3 on March 3rd. Faith raced 111 races in Abilene KS, Dubuque and Bluffs Run in IA and Sanford Orlando in Florida. Even though she ran a lot of races she only won 5 of them. Her sire is Kiowa Pretence and her dam is Sheena Shines. She is described as being a very friendly social girl that goes up to everyone for love. She is calm and well behaved though. Faith has been pretty overwhelmed since she arrived and has been pretty shy with us. Since she was so outgoing with her trainers at the track we are sure she will warm up fast. She passed her small dog test and didn't even get up from laying down when she saw him.

Faith was renamed Neala and lived happily in her adoptive home with the Persic family until she passed away suddenly on 6/26/17 due to either a blood clot or a brain tumor.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden in Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Marion Family of Maryland and Huntersville, NC 11/15/14

Kiska was a good racer that raced 172 races at Derby Lane in St Pete Florida. She retired from racing in February of 2010 and began her second career as a mom. She had 2 litters since and raised 11 pups. Kiska has now been retired from that career and is ready to be a pet. She just turned 8 years old on June 16th. Her sire is the famous Gable Dodge and her dam is Flying AC DC. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Kiska has done great in her foster home. She is very confident and doesn't let anything bother her. She gets along great with all the other dogs in her foster home large and small. Kiska walks great on leash and loves to go for walks. She loves to play with squeaky toys even more. She is a very sweet girl that will come up and lean against you for affection. It doesn't show so much in her photos but she is a beautiful light fawn with dark sable tips. She is good with children that treat dogs respectfully but she did take offense to a child that crawled on her and laid on her. So she needs to be placed with children old enough to be taught that you should never lay on or crawl on dogs because it hurts them. Because Kiska is over 8 years old she qualifies for a discounted adoption fee of $200.

Kiska was adopted by a wonderful family in 2014 and had a wonderful life. She was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2016 and survived until March of 2017. RIP Kiska.

Age:

Color/Gender:
Red Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Augusta, GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Covard family of Graniteville SC 8/10/15

Cisco came from the Birmingham Race Track adoption kennel. He raced only 2 schooling races at Tri State in WV in December of 2012, then was moved to Birmingham AL. No official races on him that we could find at that track. Cisco was adopted out from the adoption kennel there and had been in an adoptive home for a little while. He was returned to the adoption kennel in Birmingham because he was "afraid of the dark". They ended up sending him to our group and we figured out that it wasn't really fear of the dark, it is just that he doesn't want to go outside unless another dog is with him, day or night. In spite of not wanting to go outside to potty he would hold it forever in the house and rarely had an accident. Cisco is a very good boy that tries hard to please. He has done great with other dogs around and regularily goes for walks even in the dark as long as another dog is there for company. Cisco's sire is Afleet Alex and his dam is Kelsos Corkhill. He turned 4 on November 12th. So far Cisco has been a very calm, friendly guy that likes everyone and is a super sweet guy. His foster homes have been tempted to keep him because he is so easy to fall in love with. Cisco passed his small dog tests but needs a home without cats. He is a very quiet boy in his kennel so may be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. He just needs to be in a home with at least one other dog to help his confidence. Cisco is home acclimated, very loving and super cute! He would be an easy first or 5th greyhound.

Cisco was adopted by his foster family and passed away in April of 2017. RIP Cisco!

Age:

Color/Gender:
Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Crouch (Greenville SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Little, 4.23.11

Lolita is a pretty little 62lb light fawn girl. This is a littermate to one of our prior placements named Dim Sum and has the same mother as Blondie, Annie and Katie who we placed that have become wonderful pets. She comes from a breeder that hand raises only one litter of racing greyhound pups a year. Most of their dogs are very social and very people oriented. Her racing owner says she is the most loveable, snuggler that he has ever had and is his favorite greyhound of all the ones he has raised. He had a hard time letting her go but already has quite a few greyhound pets in his home so really can't keep another. She has been living with little dogs at his farm and gets along well with them. He says she doesn't pay any attention to the barn cats either so should be fine with either. So far she has been a little overwhelmed with the big move and has been very quiet and subdued and seems like she may be a little shy initially until she gets comfortable in a new situation. Her owner assures us that as soon as she warms up that she will be an incredibly devoted pet. Lolita is the cutest thing with these big doe eyes and stand up ears. She just stares up at you looking for cues on what to do next. When we weighed her at the vets she stood on the scale and didn't move once she was placed there. When we put her in her crate on the hauler she jumped right in but had to be given permission and encouragement to come back out when it was time. She seems like she will be a real easy dog that is going to look to her owner for all her cues and will want to please. She retired and has been living on a farm with her racing owner for awhile and hasn't been in a crate for awhile. She has been a little vocal about her dislike of the crate so may not be the best apartment dog unless she improves.

Lolita lived with her family for 6 years before passing away due to Lymphoma in early 2017.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Etherton Family of Columbia SC 5/2/14

Shelby has been in an adoptive home for years. She was originally placed by a group in Michigan but moved down here with her family. The place the family moved to here didn't allow pets over 25lbs though so Shelby is looking for a new home. She is a very sweet, friendly girl. She already has good house manners and is good with cats, small dogs and kids. Her family said that she doesn't use the crate anymore and doesn't get into anything when she is out all day. She is a quiet, laid back girl but she still loves to run and play in the yard. Shelby only has 11 races listed at the now closed Dairyland Race Track in 2006 and 2007. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is Cals Undefined. Her foster family says she is very sweet and easy. Very well behaved and is a fun girl that acts much younger than she is. Because of her age Shelby qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200.

Shelby had a great life with her family and passed away due to a nasal tumor in early 2017.

Fostered by (location):
Myrtle Beach (Crocker)
Adoption Status: Adopted by Rutkowski, 8.09

Hank was born in 2004 and celebrated his birthday on Dec 27th - the day he officially retired from racing.  Hank is a super friendly guy that wants to be with people more than anything else. He walks wonderfully on leash because he just wnats to be right next to you. This tall guy has lots of personality and couldn't be any sweeter. He crates quickly but needs another quiet dog for company because he dislikes being left entirely alone. Hank likes to go for rides in the car. He passed his small dog test and while initially a little interested in the cat, responded well to correction and quickly lost interest. He should be trainable with cats with careful introductions and a few reminders on what is expected. Hank isn't comfortable in a home with the activity that comes with small children. This is a precious 'velcro doggy' who wants a quiet family to bond with. Owners who are home most of the time would be his dream!

Hank was adopted in 2009 and had a wonderful life with his family until he passed away in February of 2017 at 12 years old. He will be missed by his family and everyone that met him.

Tamale is a beautiful brindle girl that raced at 64lbs. Her birthday is May 22nd 2004 and her sire is DK's Prime Time. Tamale is home acclimated and has lived with another female greyhound (Tessie), children and cats in her previous home. She is living with a small white fluffy dog in her current foster home and is fine with him as well. She is exceptionally well behaved and has a calm, sweet, loving personality and seems wise beyond her years. She did not have a fenced yard in her previous home so is used to going potty on leash so would be OK without a fenced yard. Tamale was returned with Tessie for financial reasons. She has been living with Tessie who is also available for adoption if you look at their other pictures you will see a picture of the two girls sleeping together in their foster home. They would love to find a home together. Tamale is already spayed but just had a fresh dental and a health check from our vet and is ready for adoption. Tamale is such a sweet, loving girl!

Tamale lived for over 4 years after she was adopted and passed away in January of 2017, not long after her housemate Tessie. She was nearly 12 years old. RIP Tamale

Sounds scary but it is actually a happy smile and so cute! Some greyhounds do this and we love the ones that do. She was so friendly and happy too. Just the best personality. ZZtop was born on 8/10/02 and her sire was San Tan Savage and her dam was Cee Bar Vida. ZZtop was initially adopted by Arnold and lived a happy life with him for years with him until a divorce. She was given to family friends, the Anglin Family of Travelers Rest, where she lived many more happy years. She passed away at 14 years old in Jan of 2017.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Cox family on 2.2.11

Lulu is a sweet brindle girl that retired due to a pretty common minor muscle injury in her back leg. Fortunately this injury heals up well on its own and doesn't cause any limping or permanent problem for the dog. She will be fine to run around again and play very soon and her adoption does not need to be held up because of this type of injury. Lulu is really a nice girl that seems like a pretty laid back girl. Her trainer said she was low key and well behaved and never caused any problems at the kennel and that seems to be a good description of her according to her foster home. She does like toys and will play with them but is a lower energy girl that should be a really easy dog. She is another Maryville Rumble pup and he seems to throw some exceptionally sweet well behaved dogs. We have also adopted out a quite a few pups from her mother's line that have been very sweet dogs. It would be hard to go wrong with this great combination. She is a mid sized female that raced at 62lbs. She seems like she is likely to be the perfect companion and is settling into her foster home as if she has always been there.

Lulu was adopted by the Cox Family in 2011 and lived a happy life with them for 6 years. She crossed the bridge in January 2017 at 9 years old due to colon cancer. RIP sweet girl!

Stacy raced 41 races at several different tracks, Southland in Arkansas, and Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando in Florida. She was moved to Birmingham AL in June and only had 3 races there before she broke her leg badly in a race on June 13th and was unable to finish the race. She was splinted by the track vet and was brought to the track adoption kennel. They took her to a specialist who recommended surgery and performed that surgery on June 16th. Pro Greyhound a charitable greyhound rehab organization funded the expensive surgery which cost over $2000. Her surgery was very successful and her leg looks great, but she managed to break one of the pins. So Stacy had to have the pin and all the hardware removed a few weeks ago. She has recovered from the last surgery and is being released for adoption by our vets. She has healed up very well. Stacy's sire is the very famous Soprano Drive and her dam is Huska Oasis. She is a friendly, happy girl that seems very social and not stressed by new things. Stacy loves people and is very sweet. She is a small girl that raced at 56lbs. Stacy can be vocal in her kennel so would not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Stacy passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live in homes with either. As you can see from her picture, Stacy likes to snuggle and be close.

Stacy was adopted by the Brock Family of Gastonia NC in January of 2016. She ran out through an open door and was hit by a car and passed away on Jan 16th of 2017. She will be missed by her family and everyone that knew her.

Mo is an economy return we've been asked to be given a second chance at a new family because of the loss of a job. He is not being returned because of any behavior problem. Mo likes: rides in the car, walks long or short, a good belly rub, treats, human companionship and a nice cuddle in bed (to his disappointment NOT allowed at his foster home). Mo dislikes: cats and being crated. Mo is great with children and tends to be a mama's boy. He came from a household with 3 dogs so should be able to get along great in a home with existing dogs. He is playful, but respectful with his 3 new foster sisters and brother. He has adapted quickly to a new routine and house rules. A smart boy. Mo surprised everyone at the fun run. This quiet laid-back boy can really still run. He held his own at the front of the pack. What a beautiful sight! Sleeping or running Mo is the Magic Man"."

Mo was adopted as a 6 year old in 2011 and had a great home until he passed away in January of 2017. He was loved and will be missed. RIP Mo!

Caleb is a return that came in after living in an adoptive home for about 2 years. He was originally adopted from an adoption group up North. Their family had to return them to us because one of their family members was allergic to them. Caleb is a gorgeous light fawn with black stripes. He raced at 71lbs so is a mid sized guy. He just turned 6 on October 4th. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his Dam is Craigie Maxi. He is friendly, sweet and already home acclimated. He is used to being around the children in his previous home so should be great for a home with kids. He does great at meet and greets, greeting everyone happily. He will give kisses and loves to be petted and loved on. We initially thought he had too high a prey drive to live with smaller dogs because he would bark excitedly at other breeds of dogs so we never let him approach them. We finally actually let him sniff some small chi mix dogs and he was fine after the initial sniff and lost interest. Now we think he just had no idea they were dogs. He will still need an introduction to strange dogs because he still barks but he seems to be good with other breeds once he gets over his initial excitement and knows they are actually dogs. Caleb has wonderful house manners, crates well and is quiet in his crate and sleeps all night in his crate. He does bark some mainly when he gets excited about seeing other dogs or small critters so may not be a good apartment dog. He does potty on leash well so doesn't require a fenced yard if you are willing to leash walk. This is a sweet guy that has been looking for a home for more than 6 months now.

Caleb was adopted and had a great life with his family until December of 2016 when he passed away due to bone cancer. RIP Caleb you will be missed.

Adoption Status: Adopted to the McMahan family of Greenville 8/13/15

Fargo is a very tall, gorgeous guy with a beautiful, shiny, dark brindle coat. He is an extra large guy, one of the tallest we have seen. Because he has a more tall and narrow build, he probably weighs somewhere in the upper 80s instead of in the 90s like a stockier boy his size would. Fargo is not tattooed and never raced we think he may be an AKC bred greyhound rather than a racing bred greyhound. He was acquired by his first owner as a puppy. He has lived in a home as a pet all his life. His first owner had a serious health condition that prevented him from caring for his dogs anymore and relinquished Fargo in 2012. He was quickly re-adopted but now it has happened again. His current owner also has some serious health problems that is forcing her to return her 3 greyhounds to us Fargo, Lucy and Angel. She loves these dogs very much, but just can no longer care for them due to her rapidly declining health.

Fargo is very outgoing and loves everyone he meets. He will give free kisses to everyone. He loves to snuggle and will quickly make himself at home beside you on a bed or couch and is likely to try to get in your lap. Don't plan on napping alone if Fargo is around. He is a happy, silly guy with ton of personality and no one would ever guess that he is an older guy if he didn't have a little gray on his face. He likes to play and run. He is a guy that will be up for any type of activity because he still has quite a bit of energy. He is the typical couch potato though, going for short bursts, then sleeping for hours. Fargo is very smart and curious and opened a crate door, walked inside picked up a dog bowl and carried it out of the crate to hopefully have it filled the first morning in his foster home. He is a fun, entertaining guy that makes his foster home laugh. He seems to adjust well to anything and has shown no anxiety after being moved into foster care. He is just so happy and loves everyone and everything so we think he would make a fantastic therapy dog or meet and greet dog. He will certainly get a lot of attention being the biggest dog in the room and the one with the sweetest, most outgoing personality. Fargo is wonderful with kids. The only flaw we have found with him is that he is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. He crates well but isn't always perfectly quiet so may not be an apartment dog.

Fargo was seen by our vet and had a dental and has a clean bill of health and is ready to go home. Fargo passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either. He lived in a home with a number of other dogs of different breeds both males and females so should be very good with other dogs. This is a super sweet guy!!

Because Fargo is a senior, he qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200.

Fargo passed away on December 6th of 2016 at the age of 12. He will be missed.

Blondie came in initially from her owner's farm. She had raced 81 races at Derby Lane and the Tampa Track before retiring. And had been retired for nearly a year and living with her racing owner and littermates until she came to our group. She was a good racer getting up to the top A level. Her sire is Be Discrete and her dam is M's Ingrid. She was born Nov 21st of 2004. We got her and 2 littermate sisters Katie and Annie at the same time. Blondie is the most outgoing of the 3 girls. She is pretty outgoing and very sweet. She loves people so much that her owner told us that she would jump out of her 5 foot fence to be around people especially if she was by herself. She never liked being by herself much. So she definitely needs a 6 foot fence or someone that will leash walk her. 

Blondie was adopted by Ken Crouch and was the first of many greyhounds for him. Because of Blondie, he got involved in fostering and headed up meet and greets and helped many greyhounds find homes. Blondie was a very special girl. She lived to be nearly 12 years old and passed away on October 20th of 2016. She will be missed by her dad and everyone that knew her. She was responsible for many greyhound adoptions through her dad and her calm sweet way of greeting people at all the meet and greets she went to.

Rainy has been in home for 2 years but their lifestyle recently changed and they really don't have time for her anymore so returned her. Rainy originally came from the Orlando track. She is a sweet, friendly girl that is very happy, confident, and loving. Her tail is happily wagging most of the time. Her birthday is 5/20/09 so she is almost 5. She raced at 60lbs. She passed her cat and small dog tests and has been babysat and fostered with very small dogs and has lived in a home with a cat. Rainy is a Tony's Oracle pup and a full littermate to a wonderful boy that we placed already. She is such a sweet girl and is so happy to see you when you come home, she wags her tail and her entire body. She is a smart girl that likes toys and loved running and playing in her big backyard with her lab housemate. She loves kids but we have her marked older children only because she has growled about her space some when sleeping. She needs to be placed with kids old enough to understand that all dogs need to be left alone when sleeping. She is doing great with the other dogs in her foster home, small and large.

Rainy lived with her new family until 11/16/16 when she died of kidney failure at just 7 years old. She will be missed.

Tessie is a pretty brindle, 5 year old girl that is a daughter of the famous Kiowa Sweet Trey. We have placed many of his pups and they are exceptionally sweet. Tessie raced at 67lbs and just turned 5 on April 23rd. She is a happy, playful, friendly girl that would be an excellent meet and greet dog. She goes up to everyone asking for love. She has lived in a home with another female greyhound (Tamale), cats and a toddler so should be fine in a home with any of those things. Her foster home has a small white fluffy dog that she is also fine with. Tessie did not have a fenced yard in her former home and is used to going outside on leash to potty so should do fine in a home without a fenced yard. She did enjoy going to the neighbor's fence yard to run around occasionally and does still love to run a few laps now and then. Tessie was returned with her housemate Tamale due to financial reasons. Both girls have settled into their foster home and are perfectly behaved and wonderful sweet girls. If you look in their other pictures you will see a photo of the two girls snuggled up together in their foster home. They are very bonded and we are hoping to find a home that can take them together. Tessie is home acclimated and just had a fresh dental and a checkup from our vet. She has already been spayed.

Tessie and her housemate Tamale were placed together with the Perry Family of Greenville SC in December of 2012. Tessie crossed the bridge November 12th of 2016 of an inflammatory disease of unknown origin.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Colbert Family of Kennesaw GA 9/16/16

Bonnie is a very friendly, sweet girl that is listed as black but actually is more of a beautiful dark brown greyhound than black. She travels well and has traveled all over, racing at many tracks. She started off at Derby Lane in St Pete FL, then went to Ebro, then to Palm Beach and Mardi Gras in Florida. She went to Wheeling WV, then back to Florida to Mardi Gras and on to Sanford Orlando, where we picked her up. She raced 84 races and won a lot of those including top level stakes races. She mainly competed at the longer distances and was the 2014 Ebro Derby Champion. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Kelsos Inga. Bonnie is a tall, leggy beauty that raced at 61lbs. She will turn 4 on October 16th. Bonnie passed her cat test. There was some interest when she first met the cat, but she quickly lost interest and checked out other things. She is fostered in a home with cats and is doing great with them. She loves kids and has children in her foster home that she is very good with. Bonnie has it all, good with cats, kids and other dogs of all sizes. She is gorgeous and has a great personality. She took no time at all to get comfortable in her home and settled right in. She loves to be around people and loves to go for car rides. She has been very quiet in her foster home so may be OK for apartment living. 

Sadly Bonnie passed away suddenly of unknown causes after a run on Sat Oct 15th 2016. Only a month after she was adopted. She had a wonderful family and died doing what she loved. RIP Bonnie! You were only with us for a little while but you couldn't have been more perfect.

Delta just arrived from the Melborne Race Track adoption kennel. She raced 34 races in Orlando FL before she broke her leg on November 28th 2014, She also raced about half of her races at Derby Lane in Florida. Her leg was operated on at the track on December 1st and she was moved to the Melbourne Track Adoption Kennel to complete her rehab. Her surgery was a success and the bone healed up completely already. When she arrived some of the wire and pins had broken and worked their way through the skin so she had to have all the hardware removed at the end of February. She is all healed up now and ready to be adopted. She is putting weight on the leg and walking much better since having the hardware removed. Our vet that took out the hardware says the knee looks great and has good range of motion. Delta isn't able to do really long walks or hikes yet but does like to go for shorter walks and will work up to longer walks as her leg gets stronger. She is expected to make a full recovery and will be able to run and play normally. Delta was too interested in the cat to be able to live with cats. She is fine with small dogs. Her sire is Red Ranger and her dam is SE's Racen Rainy. Delta is a calm girl that walks nicely on leash. She goes right up to people and is very sweet and friendly. Delta is a very good girl with some quirkiness. She loves her crate and insists on having a crate to sleep in even if the door is open. Her other quirk is that she waits for an escort in the house. She will just stand at the door with the door open and waits to be led in. What a gorgeous girl! Those eyes!

Delta passed away in 2016 after surgery

Clyde is a laid back, friendly guy. He has quickly adjusted to home life. Clyde is smart and learned how to use a doggy door the first day. He has picked up on potty training automatically too. He travels very well and seems to enjoy it. Clyde has been great with his foster family's cat. Although Clyde is very friendly and loves attention he would do best in a smaller, quiet family. He was with a very large family with lots of children for a short time and didn't seem comfortable with the constant activity and would choose to stay in his crate. That is one of the reasons we think he would do better in a family with older, more quiet kids or no kids. Not much phases this guy otherwise. He is a happy go lucky guy that checks in frequently with his family and seems to want to please. He loves to go for walks and is very good on leash and potties quickly on leash when taken outside on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. He is a more submissive guy temperment wise so seems like he could get along well with other dogs.

Clyde passed away of Leptospirosis in early 2016

Mo is an extra large male that raced 84lbs. He is very tall and is one of the tallest dogs we have adopted out. He is a gorgeous bright red boy with a white blaze and white feet and chest. Mo hides his age very well and doesn't have any white on his face yet to give his age away. He has very long legs and prances when he trots and is still just stunning at 9 years old. Mo has been in an adoptive home for 6 years and is looking for a new home only because of some financial trouble his family had. Mo was a good racer when he raced and got up to A level at Southland in Arkansas. He raced 78 races. We also adopted out his sire Hey Zohar and his dam Lofty Girl and many of his littermates. Mo loves to play and be silly for a short time but is mostly a couch potato. He is excellent on leash and loves to go for walks. He loves to get up on the couch or on the bed to snuggle with his people. He is very outgoing and isn't bothered by much. On New Years he slept though the fireworks, totally unconcerned. He loves people and will follow you around. He is a more dominant, confident boy so would probably do best in a home with females or other males that aren't real dominant. This is a sweet, loving guy that has been one of his foster home's favorite fosters ever. He shows no prey drive towards cats or small dogs and has lived with them in his previous home. He also lived with a toddler in his previous home.

Miles arrived with his mother Sara and his brother Otto when the pups were 5 weeks old. The pups were the result of an unplanned breeding so could not be raced professionally. Their mother Sara had been retired for awhile and was also placed through Greyhound Crossroads. We also recieved a 3rd littermate Kohle a few weeks later and a sister a few months after that that were also adopted through our group. His Pedigree

Update after adoption: Miles has been a great pup. He is very sweet and outgoing and is the happiest dog. He does events to promote greyhound adoption and is a performer with the Hounds of East Fairhaven which is a group that promotes greyhound adoptions at the Georgia and Carolina Renaissance Festivals. Miles earned his Canine Good Citizen title at 8 months old and earned his CGCA title after that. Miles does agility, obedience, rally Lure coursing, amateur racing and Barn Hunt. He finished in the top 20 in LGRA amateur racing in 2012 and in the Top 10 in NOTRA Amateur Racing in 2012 He grew up into a very tall handsome guy. He and his brothers got together to play often.

The pups mother, Sara passed away in Dec of 2013 suddenly of unknown causes. Miles brother, Kohle passed away of cancer in April of 2016 at just 6 years old. Miles brother Otto passed away a couple of months later in June of 2016 of Bone Cancer. Miles went to join his brothers at the bridge 8/5/16 after a very rare condition where bubbles form on the lung and pop causing air around the lungs and the inability to breathe. Emergency surgery was attempted but his lungs had too many of the bubbles on them to save him. There is no known cause and not much is known about the condition. He was a member of the family and his bubbly personality and sweet face will be missed.

Muppet has not been cat or small dog tested yet. She is a sweet girl that is mostly blue without a lot of brindling. While she was recuperating from her broken leg she had to spend a lot of time in her crate and did well there. She does make noise when you first come home though.

Sadly Otto got bone cancer a few months before his 6th birthday and passed away due to the cancer in June of 2016 when he was six and a half years old. His life was much too short and his owners, the Clark's, miss him very much.

Favorite is gorgeous! Tall, dark and handsome with a shiny, black coat. He raced at 77lbs and retired from the Orlando Track. Favorite's birthday is 10/1/09 so he is young, just 2 years old. He is happy, playful, friendly and loves everyone he meets. He didn't pass his first cat test but did pass his second. He does respond to correction so we think he will be trainable with cats and we will be glad to introduce him to your specific cat since he had mixed results with his first two tests. He was fine living with a small Italian Greyhound in his foster home and seems like the type that will get along well with other dogs male or female. He was too interested in chasing a fuzzy pomerianian he met though so my not do well with very small fuzzy dogs. Favorite has discovered toys and loves to play with them - maybe a little too much sometimes. He seems like a fun guy that will be an easy first or 4th greyhound. Favorite was sired by Tony's Oracle. He pulls on leash when excited and needs reminders sometimes.

Favorite was renamed Fazio and had a wonderful but too short life with his new family. He passed away at 6 years old in June of 2016 from Alabama Rot. Rest in Peace Fazio!

Blue is a rare blue, relatively large male greyhound. He is a beautiful, deep gray color with a gorgeous blaze of white on his chest. Blue is a wonderful boy and will make someone a great pet. He is well-accustomed to living in a house and has not had a single accident in his foster home. He shows no interest in chewing on things and only shows passing interest in tempting items on a countertop or table. Blue listens very well to his humans and quickly responds to a firm "NO!" as well as a happy "let's go" or "come along, Blue".  Blue loves people! He wants to wrap his body around everyone who approaches him and seems to think that everyone wants to approach and pet him. He has that fantastic greyhound personality that loves and wants to be around people but is not needy and readily goes to his bed when his foster mom is busy. Blue loves to bury his head in people's laps and hug them with his body for attention and petting. This is really a wonderful boy! Blue does great on a leash and loves going on walks. He is nervous when walking around traffic but does not panic. He has been nervous traveling in a car in the past, but is doing better at that now. Although he still seems a little nervous in a car, he is now asks to go in the car and is doing much better riding in a car.

Blue has had an unusual life for an ex-racing greyhound. After a short period on the Palm Beach Race Track, he was, unfortunately, in a hoarding house for a few years with around 40 other dogs and cats. He has a lot of scars from living with all the other dogs so we think he was picked on. Although he is not aggressive with other dogs approaching him, he can be very defensive if another dog starts something. Because of this, we think that Blue will do best in a home without small children or other dogs. If you are interested in Blue, let us know and we will tell you all about his background. Blue is a wonderful, happy boy who bounces a little with happiness and then quickly settles down for hugs and petting. He will be a wonderful addition for the lucky family that chooses him.

Blue was adopted and returned several times after we got him in addition to the times he had been adopted and returned to the initial group that placed him. Blue's foster mom decided that Blue was just meant to stay with her and adopted him in August of 2014. Blue was with her for nearly 2 wonderful years, before he passed away in June of 2016. Rest in Peace Blue! We are sorry the rest of your life wasn't as good as the last 2 years.

He was very good getting up to AA level quickly while in Corpus but when he was moved to other tracks he didn't do quite as well. He still raced for a long time. He raced at 71lbs and was 4 years old when he came to our adoption group. Dugan was born on November 24th of 2004. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily. Dugan was a very outgoing happy boy. Dugan is a handsome black boy that has the tip of one ear missing. We are guessing one of his littermates got it when playing as a puppy. When he arrived he was very fascinated by the handsome boy in the mirror and would kiss the other dog standing there. Dugan's sire was Clappin Thunder and his dam was FMC Lotsofheart. 

Dugan had a wonderful life with the McManis family of Easley and was a wonderful boy. He was their first of several greyhounds for them and he had several cats he lived with too. Dugan even helped foster other greyhounds for Greyhound Crossroads. He passed away suddenly in June of 2016. RIP Dugan!

Fury is a recent Economy Return. Fury was returned for financial reasons a couple of years ago too but bad luck has struck this older gentleman again. Fury is a great pet and already home acclimated and the returns had nothing to do with his behavior because he couldn't be more perfect. Fury is a son of the very famous Fortress and is a gorgeous, tall, red, 10 year old guy. He was quite the racer and won many races and was a real star back in the day. He was his racing owner's favorite dog and his best racer. Those days are over though and Fury prefers lounging on the the couch or bed now and doesn't do much running around anymore. He is very laid back, calm and well behaved. Fury passed his cat test and has been living with a small dog in his foster home and is very good with him. We think Fury would do best in a home with other dogs to hang out with. He has never been an only dog before and enjoys the company of others. Fury has been checked out by our vet, received a dental and is healthy and ready for his new home. Fury had to have all but two of his teeth removed when we got him back because of painful infection and rotten teeth so he will need his food softened. But on the bright side he won't need his teeth brushed or expensive dentals! Because Fury is over 8 years old he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Thanks to CrazyCollars for donating another $75 towards Fury's adoption fee which brings his total adoption fee to only $125!

Fury passed away in 2016

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Smith Family of Durham, NC 4/8/12

Broadford is a gorgeous red girl that raced at 68lbs. Her birthday is June 8th and she is another daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design. She retired a little over a month ago and has been good from the start in her foster home. It is almost like she has lived in a home at some point before. She seems like a calm, laid back girl that loves her dog beds and attention from people the most. Broadford is a friendly, happy girl. So far she has done great with a number of other dogs in the home of different breeds and even a small Italian Greyhound. She passed her cat and small dog test without interest in either so should be good in a home with either. She will play bow and pounce down into almost a down and try to get you to play with her. She is so cute and sweet. She can hold it for a long time in the crate and really tries to stay clean. She potties on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard.

Brandy was a wonderful girl and was very happy in her home until she passed away on June 24th of 2016 from Bone Cancer.

Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC (Bowden)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Russell Family of Charlotte, NC on 8/21/09

Polo boy has no races listed. His sire is WW Apple Jax and his dam is Tycam Amstel. DOB 9/9/05. Polo boy has been a dream foster. Perfectly behaved in every way. Walks great on leash, picked up potty training quickly, great house manners from the start and very friendly and loving to everyone. His foster mom described him as a "Walmart Greeter" and says he greets everyone they meet on their walks like a long lost relative. His littermate is a therapy dog and Polo Boy would probably be an excellent candidate for that because of his easy going, tolerant personality. He is very good with the cat in his foster home and didn't even pay attention to a very small dog that tried to attack him on a walk. As perfect as Polo boy is he does have one problem. He arrived with a very small tumor on his foot. It was removed but is cancer and is likely to grow back in the next year. This isn't a type of cancer that is very painful or likely to move to other organs and kill him. It can be removed again when it comes back but each time it is removed it will harm more and more of his foot until he is likely to have to have his leg amputated. At this point he is not in any pain and has full use of his leg and foot so our vet has advised us not to amputate and let him keep the leg as long as he can. There is a chance that extensive radiation could slow the cancer down or stop it completely but that would be very expensive and the odds of it being successful aren't that good. Polo boy is looking for a special home that wants an almost perfect dog and won't mind if he ends up being a 3 legged dog at some point in the future. Amputations are pretty expensive and his family will need to be as sure as possible that they will be able to afford it when the time comes. Polo's adoption is being handled in a different way to help potential adopters with future medical treatment. If you are interested in helping this special boy, please contact GC Director Kim Owens.

Polo Boy was renamed Brodie and was happy with his family until he passed away in May 28th of 2016.

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted to Hays, 12.14.10

Kohle is one of the rare greyhound puppies that became available because of an accidental breeding of two greyhounds. We received 4 pups from this litter along with their mother Sara (Sarandon). Greyhound puppies are rarely available because most pups are bred for racing and are not available for sale or adoption to the public until after their racing careers are over. Greyhound puppies are much different than the typical laid back calm adult greyhound. Pups are like puppies of other breeds - hyperactive, destructive and need constant supervision. We don't recommend them for the average busy family.

Update after adoption: Kohle has grown up to be a tall, well behaved, young greyhound. He still gets together occasionally to play with his littermates. He also encourages greyhound adoption at Greyhound Crossroads events. His owner does wildlife rehab and he is always good with the squirrels, bunnies and other critters that come in his home.

Kohle passed away suddenly in April of 2016 of Cancer at 6 years old.

Rumble is a beautiful red brindle that raced at 61lbs. Her birthday is October 13th. We also placed her mom Wheelie Cool who was a very sweet girl. Her Sire is Maryville Rumble. Rumble is retired from racing and being a mom now and ready to start her new career holding down a couch cushion at your house. Her trainer said she was a joy to have in his kennel, calm, well behaved, sweet girl. Rumble tested heartworm postive at our vets and had successful heartworm treatment. She has tested negative for heartworms and is ready to be adopted now. She has been fostered with cats and small dogs so should do well in a home with either.

Rumble passed away in May of 2016 of osteosarcoma. She was a wonderful girl that is missed very much by her family.

Annika came in from the Jacksonville Race Track. She was a very successful racer and raced more than 240 races. It is pretty unusual for a racer to continue racing well into their 5th year and she turned 5 on June 2nd. DOB June 5, 2007. Annika was still running OK and making money for her trainer, but they chose to go ahead and retire her so she could get her own family and couch. She is a beautiful, muscular girl that is very short but stocky and raced at 58lbs. She is calm but very friendly and seems to have an excellent personality and is just gorgeous. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is GS Gladice. Annika was a special order for one of our families that met her at the race track and has been waiting on her to retire. She is very well-behaved as a foster in their home, and is very good with their baby and even guinea pigs. She will be staying!

Her Pedigree

Annika passed away on March 24th of 2016 from Acute Leptospirosis brought into her yard by a wild animal. Both greyhounds in the family were infected with it, but by the time the vet figured out what it was, Annika was already gone. We are hoping her brother Clyde makes a full recovery.

Fostered by (location):
Johnson in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Calder Family on 7/25/09

Kara is a cute happy little girl that raced at Dairyland and then JCKC in FL briefly. She wasn't a good racer because she had contracted a tick disease and was weak and too thin as a result. We found the tick disease after she was retired and came to us. Her sire is Gable Dodge and her dam is Pride of Iowa. Kara was successfully treated for her tick disease and once she was feeling better showed that she has an exceptionally high prey drive to all other animals large and small. When she was sick she didn't care about chasing anything. Kara is well behaved and tries to please though. Kara has quickly learned house manners and has done well with potty training. She is very devoted to her family. She is pretty outgoing with most people and even more so once she knows you. Kara is so happy and waggy that she injured her tail wagging it and had to have it cropped three times before we finally docked it short enough that she couldn't hit anything with it and re-injure it. Now she has a happily wagging tail stub. It really suits her, though, and couldn't be any cuter. Even though Kara has an exceptional prey drive she has been able to be trained to live with a small dog and cats in her foster home with a lot of work and supervision. She would do better in a home with either no other animals or just other greyhounds. She needs careful introductions to any animal other than a greyhound and is gradually learning that she is not supposed to chase everything. Each new animal is a new experience for her though. She walks great on leash and potties great on leash. She has been very quiet in her crate in her foster home but when she was in a kennel situation she was pretty loud and would excitedly bark whenever a person came close to get their attention. We are unsure whether she would be OK in an apartment.

Her Pedigree

Update on Kara. She was eventually able to be placed with a small lab and they were best friends until she passed away. Kara died much too young at 6 years old of a fast growing cancerous tumor on her skin.

Pat the Hammer just arrived. We are really excited and surprised to get this famous racer as a pet. It is rare that a dog that raced this well is available as a pet without a long career as a stud dog first. This is a great guy that has quite the history of winning races including more than one Stakes Race. Wish he could give us his autograph. Pat is a very outgoing loving guy. He loves to put his head on you and just stare up into your eyes. He will rub his head on you every chance he gets. He is a great guy that was so well behaved when he arrived it was as if he had already lived in a home. He loves children and shows no prey drive toward cats or small dogs so should be able to live with either. This a great guy that is confident without being pushy and is so so sweet! You can tell that he is used to being admired and treated like the elite racer that he is. He just LOVES people but seems to get along with other dogs just fine too. Congratulations to the Pat's foster family! He is going to be staying with them permanently. This guy was a prize that they just couldn't let go.

Annie raced 56 races at Tampa and Derby Lane race tracks. After her race career ended she went back to live on her racing owners farm as a pet with two of her sisters. Due to the failing health of one of her owners they were forced to send some of their former racers into adoption in 2008 and we got Annie and her sisters Katie and Blondie and a few of their other dogs. Annie's Sire is Be Discrete and her dam is M's Ingrid. She was born on November 21 2004. Annie was just a little bit timid at first with new people but loved her family and her friends very much. She had separation anxiety so her family quickly added another girl dog so she had company. Annie loved her sister, they would sleep together and Annie would keep her in line when she got too wild. Annie was always a good dog and almost never did anything wrong. She had such a gentle soul and was so loving. She was very calm except when her family came home, then she would jump and bounce and wag so hard she would injure her tail. She eventually ended up losing her tail because of the injuries she caused wagging it against things so hard. Annie was taken suddenly by a tumor in her abdomen in March of 2016 just a couple of months after her adopted sister Raccoon passed away. She was loved and will be missed by her family and everyone that knew her.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Ahl family of Myrtle Beach 2/16/13

Baby is a girl we met at a visit to the track and fell in love with because of her happy personality and her full body wag that she does when meeting new people. Every stranger is a potential new friend for her. They called her Vanna but also called her Baby a lot of the time and she seems to answer even better to that. We have been waiting on her to retire for a for awhile. She was a good racer that raced a long time. Baby was considered a "pet" in her racing kennel and was given extra attention and her trainer calls us regularily to check in on her and see how she is doing. She is a red fawn with a white chest and feet and very pretty. Baby is 60lbs and her date of birth is Aug 1 2008. She passed her cat test so could live in a home with cats. She is a littermate to Betta Recognize that we placed years ago and KnockemoutGeorge that we just placed. Baby's sire is Dodgem By Design and her dam is Sky Robber. We have adopted out lots of Dodgem By Design pups that are her half sibs and we expect her to be a wonderful pet like they have been.

Baby crates well and keeps her crate totally clean. She did make some noise in her crate at first but has quieted down a lot now. We aren't sure if she would be quiet enough to live in an apartment or townhouse though. She will need a home with a fenced yard because she hasn't gone potty on leash very often and prefers to trot around on her own looking for the perfect place. Part of the problem with going potty on leash is that she will just stand next to you gazing up at you with love waiting for petting rather than sniffing around. She is THAT sweet and loving! This gal has a LOT of personality and seems like she will be a fun, devoted, playful pet. She has done great with her potty training and house rules and seems like she will be an easy, well behaved girl. She has been great with the children she has met at our events and goes right up to them with her tail wagging. She actually goes up to everyone happily wanting attention. A very outgoing little girl! So SWEET!
