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.

Stutz is big guy that just arrived from a farm in Kansas. He has 59 races to his credit at Derby Lane track in Florida and was retired to the farm because of a toe injury. He raced at 98lbs so is an extra large guy. His sire is Balligari and his dam is Elysium. Stutz is named for a famous man in greyhound racing history that is in the Greyhound Hall of Fame. He was described by his trainer as a sweet friendly boy that was a favorite with everyone that visited the kennel. He needs careful placement because he did have some trouble getting along with some of the other male dogs at the track. He never started anything, but he would only put up with so much according to his trainers. He celebrates his birthday December 1st. Stutz passed his small dog tests and lives with a small dog in his foster home. He has done great at meet and greets with children and adults and loves anyone that will pet him. He does nip to get your attention and we are working on correcting that behavior. He is being playful but it does hurt. He is a real snuggly guy that loves to curl up in bed with his people. His favorite place in the house is the bed - human bed, not dog bed. He seems to be a follower and follows the other dogs in his foster home and looks to them to see what he should do next. He has a high prey drive and can not live in a home with cats.

His Pedigree

Update on Stutz. He was adopted by his foster mom. He is a wonderful boy that has never shown any aggression to any dog since he left the track. He is so tolerant that he helped raise an Italian greyhound puppy. He has quit the nipping behavior entirely. He does still have a high prey drive and that has been doing Barn Hunting competitions where he sniffs out a rat safely contained in a tube hidden in hay bales and he did some lure coursing - both great ways to let him have fun with his prey drive. Stutz also performs at the Carolina and GA Renaissance Festivals in the cast of The Hounds of East Fairhaven. He promoted greyhound adoption at meet and greets, had an on stage role in a musical, and was a blood donor. Stutz also traveled across the country and Canada with his mom transporting greyhounds from tracks to adoption groups. Stutz is a sweet sensitive boy that always tries to do the right thing and never gets into trouble. 

Stutz lived a long happy life. He crossed the bridge in 2021 at nearly 12 years old of a variety of age related problems. He was a gentle giant that will be missed by everyone that met him.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Moses family of Simpsonville 6/15/13

Chucky just arrived and is an extra large male that raced at 91lbs at Southland in AK, Victoryland and Mobile in AL, and most recently Palm Beach and Sanford Orlando in FL. He was quite the traveler and does enjoy going for rides and is good on trips. Chucky's sire is DK's Prime Time and his Dam is Char Jimmy Pop. He just turned 4 on June 2nd. He is a gorgeous brindle and is very tall. He towers over even other large greyhound males and is one of the largest dogs we have ever adopted out, and is one of the tallest greyhounds we have ever placed. Chucky may be a giant, but he is a gentle giant that actually lacks confidence. He can be a little timid at first in new surroundings but warms up fast. He loves to be petted and calmly leans in for petting. He has done well on slick floors and stairs in his foster home and is very calm and laid back. He has been to PetSmart on outings several times and has done fine with all the dogs and people he has met there and goes up to strangers for attention. He has been great with the small dogs or cats in his foster home so would be an excellent dog for a home with cats or small dogs. Chucky seems like the type that would walk or more likely run away from confrontation, in fact, when he gets scared he does have the tendency to run. The folks at the track adoption kennel warned us that he got scared and tried to scale their fence - without success. So he will need a yard with a 5 or 6 foot fence or someone that will leash walk him if he goes to a home without a fenced yard. He is quiet in his crate and likes to be in his crate so may be OK as an apartment dog. Chucky has seemed to be pretty comfortable with the well-behaved children he has met so far so may be good in a home with kids. He is settling in nicely to his foster home and has been well-behaved. If you want a sweet, gentle giant Chucky is your man. We just found out that Chucky likes water and enjoys swimming!

Chucky was adopted in June of 2013. He was renamed Chief. Chief crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April of 2017 when he was just 8.

Fancy is a cute little girl that raced at 61lbs. Her birthday is August 2nd and she is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design. Fancy is already home acclimated and has been living in her racing owner's home since she retired in October. Her racing owner already has a number of pet greyhounds so is not able to keep Fancy, even though she would like to. Fancy has great house manners and is very well behaved. She will give a quick bark if she needs to go out to potty and another at the door to let you know she is done and ready to come back in. She LOVES people and will stick close to you if she is awake. She will put her front legs and chest in your lap on a chair to snuggle with you. So far she has not gotten up on furniture though except for this, but we are pretty sure she would with a little encouragement. Fancy loves to play outside and will play with toys outside and entertain herself even if no humans or dogs want to play with her. She seems to really like playing with balls. She was living with quite a few other large dogs of different breeds and gets along great with males and other females. She has even done great with the small 13lb Italian Greyhound in her foster home. She also passed her cat test and even seemed to like the cat as she rubbed up against it - until it smacked her for it. Then she decided it was best not to be too friendly with cats. She is more focused on interacting with the humans than playing with the other dogs so might be OK as an only dog too. Fancy crates well and is quiet in her crate except for a little whining at meal times.

Fancy was adopted in April of 2012. She was called Fern by her family. She crossed the bridge in January of 2019 after a long happy life with her family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Writt Family of Taylors 6/29/13

Noble is a stunning large, white male with a black patches. He is very flashy, drop dead gorgeous and even trots with a prance. He weighs 85lbs and is an extra large guy. Noble is not a retired racer. He has been in a home since he was a puppy so has great house manners and is already home acclimated. If he does anything wrong all you have to do is say something and he will stop right away. He really wants to please people. Noble hasn't been out a lot and does get a little stressed in new situations with people he doesn't know. He is a bit timid and isn't initially as friendly as our more confident dogs and tends to stand back a bit at our meet and greets at PetSmart. He takes a day or two to really bond with new people but once formed that bond is very strong and he will follow his new owner around and ask for affection. Noble will quietly stand leaning against you or put his head in your lap for petting. He is very good with children.Noble was given to us to rehome because he was not getting along with a new male greyhound in the home. From what we have seen Noble is not a confident dog and can be uncomfortable with new dogs coming in to his home large or small. Although he lived with small dogs in his previous home and was fine with them, we would rather not put him in a home with small dogs. Noble does love to play with the other greyhounds and a wolfhound in his foster home and we have seen none of his previous behavior except if dogs he doesn't know run up and get in his face. His previous owner had quite a few dogs and felt that may have been part of the problem and thought he would do better in a home with fewer dogs where he would get more attention. Noble passed a recent cat test with very little interest so we think he may be trainable with indoor cats. Noble will need a home with a fenced yard because we haven't been able to get him to go potty on leash even one time during his walks. He just likes to trot around looking for that perfect spot and is much too polite to go while on leash. Noble likes to go for walks and travels very well. He is a really stunning guy that is already home acclimated and is going to make someone a very nice pet.

Catfish is a tall, thin brindle boy that raced at 73lbs. He is all legs. He just retired from the Jacksonville track and is a sweet, calm, friendly, happy, boy. He needed a little work on leash because he pulled some but is already doing better. They said he was a calm, well behaved guy at the kennel and so far that is what his foster home has found. Catfish's sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey so he is related to a bunch of the dogs we have placed. They all seem to be exceptionally sweet. His dam is KB's Turbo Toes. Catfish will celebrate his 3rd birthday on August 1st. Hopefully he can celebrate his birthday in his new home. Catfish passed his cat test with absolutely no interest in the cat and ended up being OK with the guinea pigs in his foster home with a few reminders. He is living with a small baby in his foster home and seems to be fine with her too. This tall guy is just stunning and so sweet! His foster home has taken him jogging and he seems to enjoy that. He is starting to play with toys now and his playful side is really coming out.

Catfish had a long wonderful life with his adoptive family. He crossed the bridge in July of 2021.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Roach Family of Liberty, SC 10/15/13

Larry is a red male from the litter that retired out of race training and didn't make it to the race track. Larry is one of the more confident friendly boys in the litter. His sire is Dave the Dog and his dam is Topaz Lass. Larry's foster mom owns Lass's brother and another of our foster homes owns his dad. Larry turned 2 on May 26th so he is a young guy. So far Larry seems like the most outgoing of the brothers. He does like people and will approach for petting so isn't really shy like some of his brothers but can be a little nervous when first meeting strangers. He will warm up quickly though and definitely prefers his foster dad to his foster mom so would be a great man's dog. He has played well with the other greyhounds in his foster home. He isn't pushy or bossy in play so would probably be fine to live with a more dominant dog. He passed his small dog test with no interest at all in a pug and seems like a really low prey drive guy because he didn't even pay any attention to some chickens that he rode up with. He is just a bit timid but only with some new things but seems like the type that will warm up fast and be a playful silly guy with a lot of personality. He playbows to his foster parents trying to get them to play with him. He enjoys running and playing outside. He does need some work with walking on leash because he will freeze sometimes if something scares him. With exposure to lots of new things by a confident owner, Larry is going to gain confidence quickly. Larry is on medical hold for heartworm treatment and is expected to be cleared for adoption around Oct 10th. 

Larry was adopted in 2013 and had a long happy life with his family. He crossed the bridge in June of 2021.

Tor just arrived from the Lester Raines Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He raced most of his 78 races at Southland in Arkansas though. He was pretty good, getting up to B level briefly at the top track in the country, but he mostly raced at the lower levels at that track. Tor raced at 71lbs and turned 3 on June 13th. His sire is Go Wild Teddy and his dam is Kelso's Jenna. Tor is settling in nicely to foster care. He loves the kids in his foster home. He was just a little overwhelmed at first with all the change in his life but warms up fast and loves attention. He will just stand next to you for petting for as long as you will pet him. He gets along great with the other two large male dogs in his foster home and also did great with smaller dogs he met. He even allowed puppies to jump all over him, so seems to have a very sweet temperament. Tor passed his cat test easily too, without much interest. He loves going for walks and is very good on leash. Tor seems like a calm guy that will be a great pet. He is a very handsome, black guy with one cute floppy ear that doesn't always match the other. He is very cute and sweet!

Tor was adopted in 2018. He had a happy but short life with his family. He passed away of unknown causes while in a boarding kennel in August of 2021 less than 3 years after he was adopted. He will be missed.

Kap came to us from the Daytona Race track because her kennel closed. She wasn't there long and never had a single official race. She was only a year and a half old when she retired in 2015. She was adopted 7/31/2015 and her name was changed to Rosie. She has been in an adoptive home since then. Rosie will turn 8 on December 11th. She is being returned to us with her housemate Bryant due to a divorce. They are very bonded and we are looking for an adoptive home where they can stay together. Rosie is a smaller girl that is just 58lbs. Her sire is Gable Sour Cream and her dam is WW Key Kap Rosy. She is very friendly and waggy with a tail that curls up over her back more like a husky than a greyhound. It is very very cute and makes her a one of a kind. She did complain some at first in her foster home so may be too loud to be an apartment dog. Rosey passed her cat and small dog tests with flying colors and has lived with cats in her previous home. Her trainer brought her 3 boys to work in the kennel with her so she is used to being around kids. Her adoptive home had 2 special needs kids that she did well with too so she has always been around children. 

Rosie was adopted with her housemate Bryant by one of her foster homes. Unfortunately she started limping only weeks after her adoption and was diagnosed with bone cancer. Her pain progressed quickly and she crossed the rainbow bridge

Dee raced at Derby Lane and Sanford Orlando most recently. She has 33 races to her credit and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is Freak Show and her dam is Lil Law Dawg. Her birthday is Dec 13th. She passed her cat test at the track so should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. She is a gorgeous nearly all white girl with only some red spots on her ears and one tiny patch of red on one eye. Dee is very friendly and happily greets everyone she meets with a very waggy tail. She does try to give hugs sometimes so we are working on teaching her to keep all 4 feet on the floor. She is very curious and the first thing she does is put her paws up on things to check them out better - like a shopping cart in a parking lot and a couch, table and dog crate in her foster home. Dee corrects easily though and will learn she doesn't need to climb on things. It does show that she is very curious and not afraid of new things or new experiences. Maybe a good agility dog? She made just a little noise in her crate at first but quieted down right away on her own and slept all night her first night in a home. In the morning she fussed a little in the crate but correct fast and settled right down after only two corrections. Dee traveled well on the dog haul so seems like a dog that would be comfortable in just about any situation.

Dee was adopted by the Nash family in April of 2013. She was with them for 8 wonderful years before crossing the bridge after a long battle with cancer in May of 2021. Speedy Dee you have finished your race on this side. RIP

Crow originally came from the Sanford Orlando race track but though some bad luck and no fault of his own has been in two adoptive homes already. He is a pretty brindle male that raced at 74lbs. He won't turn 4 until Oct 1st. His sire is Tim's Crow and his dam is Red Hot Victory. Crow is a very friendly, outgoing guy that was in his first home for about 5 months but they had to return him to us because of some serious health problems. He is being returned again to us again with his housemate Jazz now for financial reasons. It has been a hard decision for his current family because they really love the boys. Crow travels well and passed his cat test. So far he has crated quietly so we think he would be perfect for a townhouse or apartment living. He potties quickly on leash and was living in a home without a fenced yard so is used to being leash walked. Crow is a very playful fun guy that has enough energy to keep things fun and isnt a total couch potato like many greyhounds. Shortly after he was adopted the first time Crow broke one back leg. The leg is completely healed and you can't even tell where he was injured and he doesn't limp on it at all but he does have some pins in his leg. Crow is a very loving, friendly guy and what a cute guy!

Crow's foster mom decided that she just couldn't let him go, and adopted him in June of 2015. He ended up being a greyhound ambassador helping her host the group's meet and greets at PetSmart. He was loved by everyone that met him and encouraged a lot of people to adopt greyhounds. He crossed the bridge due to cancer in May of 2021 at 9.5 years old. Crow will be missed.

Armor originally came in from a kennel closing at the Daytona Beach race track. He also raced at Sanford Orlando and Derby Lane race and has 66 races listed. It doesn't look like he won one race but he did place some. His sire is Bob's Skeet and his dam is Prairies Eagle. Armor turned 4 on June 24th. He is very calm, friendly and well behaved. Armor is a tall, leggy guy that raced at 76lbs. Armor is very good on leash and enjoys going for walks. He has already been living in a apartment and is very quiet in his kennel so would be perfect for someone needing a quiet apartment dog. He was also living as an only dog for a year so should also be an excellent choice for someone that wants an only greyhound. His trainer had 3 older children that work at the kennel with her and he was very good with them. His recent owner said Armor usually chooses to avoid real small loud kids though. Armor can be a bit grumpy about his space when laying down, so we have him listed as no kids even though he enjoyed being around the older kids that worked with him at the kennel. Armor passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no interest in chasing either. He is doing fine with the small dog in his foster home too. Armor is a grinner! It is a cute thing that just a few greyhounds do when they are happy or excited. He also has one other quirky thing about him - he can wag his tail straight up and down as well as side to side! Armor has been in an adoptive home for a little over a year so is already home acclimated, well behaved and has good house manners. The only reason he is available again is because his dad took a job that forces him to travel every week. Armor has been boarded a lot recently and his dad feels it isn't fair to him. If you want a tall handsome boy Armor could by your guy. Armor has settled in well to his foster home. He is a very nice boy that seems like he would be an easy addition for some lucky family. Such a laid back guy, but he does love to get silly and do zoomies occasionally in the backyard. Very friendly and loving.

Armor crossed the bridge 5/11/21 after battling osteosarcoma (bone cancer). He will be missed.

Their owner is suddenly having to travel weekly for work and was forced to give up the dogs because of all the time she has to spend away from them.

Her Pedigree

Duchess was adopted in August of 2012. She lived a long happy life until she crossed the bridge April 29th of 2021 at the age of 13.5. RIP Sweet girl!

SPECIAL SENIOR THAT HAS BEEN WAITING ON A HOME THE LONGEST! Gracie just needs a home with no other dogs. Gracie is a tiny black female that raced at just 57lbs. She originally came from the track in Orlando and raced only 9 races there, not placing in one of those races. Her birthday is March 28th 2010 so she will be celebrating her 10th birthday soon. As a senior, she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250! Her sire is Tony's Oracle and her dam is USS Upside. She is a littermate to Michele Henry and Cute Candle that we already placed and a half sister to several other dogs we have placed. Gracie lived with cats for 2 years in her first home and is fine with them. She has been in two adoptive homes before and has been returned for the same reason both times. The first home adopted several puppies after adopting Gracie. Gracie has always had some issues with not liking to be bothered by other dogs when lying down or sleeping. Having a bunch of wild puppies in the house was too much for her. Her family decided to re-home Gracie and keep the puppies. She was placed in a home with no other dogs in December of 2014. That home adopted a second female dog in 2015 and Gracie got along well with her perfectly for 4 years. Gracie bit her housemate twice in 6 months time, once over food and once over her space, so the decision was made to re-home her again. We had Gracie checked by our vet and found that she is low thyroid and needs inexpensive thyroid medication. Low thyroid can cause behavior changes and grumpiness. We started Gracie on thyroid medication and she has been perfectly behaved with quite a few other dogs in her foster home for months now. Although Gracie is doing fantastic with the dogs in her foster home now, we want to place her in a home with no other dogs. She attends greyhound playgroup and is fine playing with the other dogs, so this isn't a dog that can never be around other dogs though. She has never been grumpy with people approaching her when she is laying down, according to her former family. She is friendly with adults and children she meets. Because she has shown grumpiness about her space, with other dogs, we chose to mark her 'older children only', just to be safe. Gracie isn't a needy girl and is perfectly happy laying on her bed most of the day. She doesn't follow you around and you will hardly know she is there. Gracie can be a little whiny sometimes. Gracie is doing great in foster care, has great house manners and knows how to use a doggy door. She is ready to be a pet for someone that wants a very easy, only dog that will be calm and well behaved. 

Her Pedigree

Gracie was adopted by the Laben family in March of 2020. She stayed with them for the remainder of her life. Sadly her time with them was shortened due to osteosarcoma. She was only with them a little over a year and crossed the bridge on April 28th of 2021.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Tanner Family of Piedmont, SC 6/26/14

Clyde is a dark brindle male that just arrived from a farm in Jacksonville. We have known him since he was tiny and visited and played with his litter while he was growing up. He never raced because he just wasn't that interested in playing with or chasing the lure so never received an official racing name. He has been called Clyde all his life though. He tested cat and small dog safe. The farm he was raised on has small kids that visit frequently so he is used to being around kids. He just turned one year old on December 1st so is only 18 months old now. Clyde is very friendly and happy and pretty laid back and well behaved for a young pup. He seems like a very confident boy that wasn't phased by the move from the farm. He walked perfectly on leash for us and calmly went up to everyone he met wagging his tail. He doesn't have an official racing weight because he never raced but he weighed 69lbs at the vets. He is very tall for his weight though. All legs, very tall and thin!

Clyde was adopted by the Tanner family in 2014. He lived a happy life until he got cancer at the age of 8.5 and crossed the bridge in April of 2021. He will be missed.

Respect is a cute, sweet, black girl. She was born on Dec 11th and is 4 years old. She raced at 66lbs and raced over a hundred races and did pretty well. Respect is very friendly and gives kisses and is a real "people dog". She traveled with her head on the driver's shoulder on part of the trip up from the track. A very social, loving girl and so beautiful! Respect passed her cat test so should be OK to live with cats and is living with small dogs in her foster home. Respect prefers to be with people over other dogs so we think she would do fine as an only dog. She does play well with the two males in her foster home though. She has already learned to sit and down on command for treats. She also waits at the door before going out and waits patiently for her food at feeding time. She is a great eater and has no problem going into the crate. She has been quiet all night and is quick to do her business when she goes out and will potty on leash with no problem so might even be a good apartment dog. Respect seems great with handling and allowed her nails to be trimmed with no drama. Anyone looking for a calm, sweetheart of a dog should definitely meet Respect. What a cute cute little face!! Respect had a dominant female that was not fond of her although she has gotten along with two males in her foster home. So she may need a home without other dominant females.

Her Pedigree

Respect was adopted in 2012 by the Mayo Family. They called her Ressie. She was loved and cherished by them until she was 13.5 years old and crossed the bridge 5/5/21. Ressie will never be forgotten.

Farm just arrived from the Daytona Race Track where he only raced one race. He had raced 19 races before that at the Melbourne Track but only ever won one of them. His Daytona kennel is closing so after he came in last in his first official race they decided to retire him. He is young and won't turn 2 until October 12th.  He is a short, stocky, muscular guy racing at 77lbs. Farm's sire is Kiowa Wish Frank and his dam is Kiowa Fuzzy Abby. He is a handsome guy that is mostly white with a lot of freckles and one big spot on his face. He loves meeting new people and seems to be a very outgoing friendly guy. He is calm and quiet in his crate. He has calmed down nicely after the first few days in his foster home and has settled right in. He gets a little excited at first and pulls some on the leash when you first go for walks, but then calms down and is very good after a few minutes. This is a fun guy that would love to go and do whatever you were doing with you. Farm was a little too interested in cats to pass his cat test but he did fine with the small dog in his foster home. He is used to being around kids because his track trainer had 3 young boys that she took with her to the kennel.  More as we get to know him.

His Pedigree

Farm was adopted by one of our vets and was called Franklin. He had a happy life until May 1st of 2021 when he passed away due to a large tumor on his heart. He will be missed.

Iggy is a smaller 69lb, red brindle male that is very timid at first. He is a littermate to two of our other dogs BT Ember and BT Fire that have been adopted and are great pets. Iggy's birthday is Jan 28th, 2008 so he is 3.5 years old. His sire is the famous Flying Penske! He loves to watch TV and has actually laid on his foster dad's lap and napped while watching TV - see his photos. He is living with quite a few other dogs including a couple of puppies in his foster home and seems to get along very well with others. Ignite crates quietly and likes to be in his crate. Although he can be shy out in public he warmed up in his foster home after just a couple of days and now is friendly and happy and a big snuggler. Iggy is living with cats and small dogs in his foster home so should be fine living with either. He seems to prefer women over men but did warm up to his foster dad. He could go to a home with only a man and would be fine since he would be forced to interact with him. In a family situation with a woman and a man we have noticed that he prefers the woman and takes a longer to warm up to a man. Iggy will be a great devoted pet if he just is given a little time to warm up. Because of Iggy's shyness we listed him as older children only, this is something we do with many shy dogs. We think that small, loud children would scare him and would just be a little too much for him to handle on a daily basis. We don't think he would ever intentionally harm a child in any way. He would probably be OK with visiting children although he may choose to stay in another room and not interact much.

Iggy was adopted in 2012 and lived a long happy life with his family until he crossed the bridge March 1st of 2021 at 13 years old.

She celebrates her 3rd birthday on April 29th. Hashbrown passed her cat and small dog test at the track so should be fine living with either.

Her foster home says she is settling in very well and is doing great with their cats.

Her Pedigree

Update on Hashbrown: She was adopted and renamed Princess Scully. Shortly after adoption, she lost weight and nearly died. After a lot of testing, vets diagnosed her with a Pancreatic insufficiency. Princess Scully recovered but had to have digestive enzymes added to her food for the rest of her life. In spite of her bad pancreas and kidney issues, she lived a long happy life. Princess Scully crossed the bridge on 4/21/21 just a few days shy of her 12th birthday.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Collins Family of Chatham VA 4.24.18

Sweet Pete came in from the Birmingham AL Race Course Track adoption kennel. He never actually raced there, but was one that was sent there because they transport a lot of retired dogs to other adoption groups across the country, including ours. He raced 126 races all at the Palm Beach Race Track in Florida. He was a pretty good racer racing a lot of his career at the top A level and even winning A level races. Sweet Pete is a stunning 76lb dark brindle guy that is a rich mahogany red with black stripes. He has the most beautiful shiny coat. Just stunning! Sweet Pete turned 4 on December 8th. He is a strong guy that needs some reminders on walking nicely on leash because he gets excited and wants to see everything at once. He is very friendly and has loved all the people he has met. Sweet Pete just couldn't resist chasing the cat, so he needs a home with no kitties. He was better with the little dog he met and just sniffed him politely but was initially interested in him at a distance before he knew what he was. He just needs a careful intro to small dogs that might look like bunnies or squirrels. Sweet Pete's sire is the famous Gable Sour Cream and his dam is AMF Blazing Sun. Pete is being fostered with a 6 year old child and really seems to enjoy being around her. We listed him as "older kids only" because he could knock over a toddler accidentally when he was being bouncy, happy and silly. Pete is more energetic and fun than the typical couch potato greyhound. He would be the perfect choice for a family that likes to go for walks or hikes. Sweet Pete will enjoy a more active lifestyle than most. Pete does complain about being in his kennel, so would not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. 

Pete was adopted by the Collins family of Chatham VA in early 2018. He turned out to be a headstrong boy with challenging behaviors. They worked hard with him and never gave up on him. He turned into a wonderful dog and his loss a few years later to bone cancer was devastating to their family. Rest in peace Pete.

Fostered by (location):
McPike Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McPike family of Inman SC 2/23/17

Topper came to us in pretty bad shape. He is a tall, white boy with a couple of black spots on his face. The rest of him is white. He was registered to race but never actually had an official race so must have been adopted initially when he was around 2 years old. So it is likely he has been in a adoptive home for at least 6.5 years. We were able to identify him by his ear tattoos to get his racing name and he did have a tag on that said his call name was Topper. Since he doesn't have an official racing weight we don't know exactly what he should weigh but he is horribly thin now. Our vet thinks he should weight around 80lbs. Topper is tall for a male with a big head and extra long nose with a cute overbite. From what we can gather he was relinquished by his owners because they couldn't take care of him anymore. The person they gave him to, tied him out in their yard for at least a week according to their neighbors. That family turned him over to us when we asked for him. When Topper arrived he was very underweight, had lots of fleas, itchy skin and toenails that hadn't been trimmed in a very long time. Our vet checked him over and feels he is healthy in spite of being 20lbs underweight. He is heartworm negative. Topper was neutered already, and we gave him a fresh dental. Topper did not pay any attention to the cats at the vet clinic and seemed OK with a small white dog in his first foster home too. He goes right up to kids when he sees them too and seems to like them. He rides well in the car and crates well. He has only made a little noise in his kennel. He did great at the vet's office and calmly did everything asked of him and didn't seem to mind being handled. He seems like a very calm, sweet boy. He is putting on weight quickly and is gaining strength back after just a couple of weeks in his foster home. Topper turned 8 on July 24th, so that qualifies him for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Arville. 

Update: Topper was adopted by the McPike family in 2017 when he was 8.5 years old. He had a wonderful life with them until until March of 2021 when he was nearly 13 years old. His family helped him cross the bridge due to weakness in his backend and possible cancer in a front leg that caused him a lot of pain. RIP Topper.

Beast is a tall, handsome, 79lb, brindle male with a white chest and feet that was originally adopted directly from a Derby Lane racing kennel in Florida. Because of a change in their living arrangements, his adoptive owners have asked us for assistance finding him a new home. Beast also raced at the Southland Track in Arkansas briefly. He raced 103 races and got up to the top A level. His last race was October 5th of 2015 and he has been in an adoptive home since then. Beast turned 5 on August 23rd. His sire is BD's Grayson and his dam is Flying Havana. He is a friendly, confident guy that loves to go for rides in the car. He was living with small dogs in his previous home and in his current foster home and gets along great with them. He showed no interest in the cats at the vet's office. Beast crates wonderfully and quietly. His owner says he hasn't really been around children but he can be a little grumpy about being bothered when sleeping so we think he would do better with older kids that would understand not to bother him then. We got Beast neutered and gave him a fresh dental and heart worm test and got his vaccinations up to date so he is freshly vetted and ready to go home. He is a very sweet guy that hasn't seemed stressed at all by being rehomed. He is happy and has taken everything in stride. Seems like a very well behaved boy. 

Beast was adopted by the family that owns his mother Flying Havana. They were reunited briefly right after she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Beast also ended up getting bone cancer and passed away in February of 2021.

He is a big traveler, racing at Southland in Arkansas, Dubuque, Naples Ft Myers, Ebro and finally Birmingham Al. He was never really a great racer but raced well enough to have a long career and did win some races and placed often. Rocky has 177 races to his credit. His sire is the very famous Lonesome Cry and his Dam is Kelsos Peach. He turned 5 on Nov 13th. We placed one of his littermates PG Up My Dough a year or two ago! Rocky did not pass his cat test so needs a home with no kitties but he did do fine with small dogs he met. He came in with a few rub marks on his face from his muzzle but they are better and we need to get new pictures. His foster home says Rocky is a calm, well behaved boy and acts like he has always lived in a home. No issues settling in with their other greyhounds and he picked up house manners right away. He is a great boy! Very friendly and sweet too. He seems like he will be an easy first greyhound. He has been quiet in his foster home so may be OK for townhouse or apartment living.

Rocky was adopted by the Backus family in 2015. He passed away in early 2021 at 11 years old. His family gave him a wonderful home, but they said he gave them even more back.

His boundless energy and charm keeps everyone entertained and laughing. He is currently learning the do's and don't's of inside living and although very curious, he is adapting well. He walks well on a leash but requires a firm hand. What a great boy full of personality!

PJ just arrived. He is a black male that is very outgoing and friendly. He raced at 75lbs and has 94 races to his credit. His birthday is February 15th and he is 3.5 years old. PJ's sire is Super Lee and his dam is Jetta BMW. He passed his cat test at the track so should be OK to live with them. PJ has been fine with the tiny dog in his foster home. He is bouncy and happy and curious about everything. He does need work on his leash manners because he is happily trying to see everything new at the same time. Except for a few howls he has been quiet in his crate and corrects easily when he does make any noise. He potties nicely on leash too. More as we get to know this sweet guy.

PJ was adopted by the Chapman family in 2012 and renamed Sherlock. He lived a happy life with them until he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in January of 2021. Sherlock will be missed.

Kiwi is a brindle female that raced at 64lbs. She turned 3 on May 29th. Kiwi raced at Palm Beach race track briefly, then was moved to Jefferson County Kennel Club to race. She raced a total of 71 races before retiring in April of 2011. She was pretty good at first getting up to the top A level quickly. In her last race she just decided she didn't want to chase the lure and never started the race with the other dogs. Kiwi passed her cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. Her sire is Flying Penske and her dam is Kiowa Berma Top. Kiwi's foster family has decided to keep her.

Kiwi was adopted 7/1/2011 by the Sellner family. She lived a long happy life with them until she passed away at 12.5 years old in January of 2021. Kiwi was their second foster failure, she ruled the pack, taught many a foster the rules of the house and picked up after them- no other dog seemed to understand that toys had to be put back in the toy box so poor Kiwi had to run around picking up toys and putting them away. One time Jake caught a squirrel after a battle through the house. When their son went to dispose of the remains, he couldn’t find the tail. After thinking a bit he went to the toy box and found the missing tail. Kiwi was her own girl and will be greatly missed! Run fast and free at the Rainbow Bridge with Jake, Patsy and Jingles.

Evie just arrived. She raced at 59lbs and turned 2 on Oct 29th. She is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design. Evie was retired due to a minor injury to her front wrist. This is nothing that even causes a limp at a walk but did effect her speed as a racer. Our vet said she will be fine to run around and play as a pet and it won't limit her in any way and is not going to be noticeable. Evie is friendly and well behaved and traveled well on her way up from the track in Florida. She is living in a foster home with several very tiny dogs and has been great with them so could go to a home with small dogs. Evie settled right into foster care and was so relaxed that she was on her back sleeping with all her legs in the air - we call that a roach and it is a sign of a happy relaxed dog. Her foster home says that she is one of those dogs that makes you feel good because she always wags happily if you even make eye contact with her. Evie is a very happy girl that loves everyone. She passed her cat test with only a little interest when the cats ran or jumped. The rest of the time she was perfectly fine with them. She seems very trainable and mainly just will need supervision with cats at first.

Evie was adopted in January of 2012 and had a wonderful life with her family until she crossed the bridge suddenly at the end of 2020. She passed away from a reaction to painkillers given to her because of an osteosarcoma (bone cancer) diagnosis. She was very loved by her family and will be missed.

Sangria is a littermate to one of our own dog's Happy Stutz. We have waited for her to retire and she already has a home to go to. She is a tall girl that raced at 65lbs. Her sire is from England - Balligari and her dam is Elysium. She will turn 4 on December 1st. She has 99 races listed and started out at Southland in Arkansas and from there went to Palm Beach in Florida. She just retired from Sanford Orlando race track. She was never a great racer but was able to place at the lower levels and even win a few races. Sangria is a sweet, happy girl that loves to snuggle with people and with other dogs. She is a twin in looks and personality to her brother that has already been placed. One of the sweetest and best behaved dogs we know. Like her brother, she isn't real food motivated and will skip a meal sometimes.

Sangria was adopted in 2013 and her family adopted her littermate sister a bit later. She had a happy life with her sister and family until she crossed the bridge just after her 11th birthday in December of 2020 of kidney failure. She will be missed by everyone that met her. Such a sweet gentle soul.

Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is CW Firefly. She passed her small dog test but still needs tested with cats. She was picked out by one of our adopters on a recent visit to the track and is not available for adoption. 

Kama was adopted by the Davis family in 2016 and had a wonderful life with them until she crossed the bridge in December of 2020 due to a probable spinal tumor. Her family is heartbroken and she will be missed.

Adin is a small brindle female that raced at 57lbs. She passed her cat test at the track and has paid no attention to the cats or small dogs she has met since she arrived. The small dog in her foster home loves her and goes into her crate to lay beside her. She turns 4 on June 18th. Her sire is the famous Flying Stanley which makes her a half sister to quite a few sweet dogs that we have placed. Her dam is Naysa. Adin is happy, sweet and very outgoing and seems like she will be an energetic, fun greyhound. "Energetic" for a greyhound still is just short bursts of playfulness - just enough to be fun and cute. Greyhounds are really low energy couch potatoes. Adin is smart and level headed and has picked up potty training right away. She pulls some on leash in her happiness to see things and visit with everyone, so we will be working on that. So far she has adjusted to her foster home quickly and has been the BEST foster! She gets along great with the other dogs, had no accidents inside, and plays with stuffed animals. Nothing seems to bother her and she does great at meet and greets and greets everyone happily.

Adin was adopted in 2012 and lived a long happy life until she crossed the bridge at 12.5 in December of 2020. RIP Adin.

Snakefoot came in from Mick Hymes farm in Arkansas. He was a very good racer that retired from racing to be a stud dog. He has 20 puppies registered so far and may have other younger ones out there that aren't yet registered. Snakefoot is a handsome brindle guy that raced at 76lbs. He will turn 8 on July 11th. His sire is Flare Gun and his dam is Oaks Mean Madina. Snakefoot moved right into foster care and made himself at home. Once he sees something the first time (stairs, new crate) he figured it out and had it down. Snakefoot potties nicely on leash so may do well without a fence yard. He was quiet all night the first night in his crate so may make a good apartment dog. Snakefoot is a wonderful guy that will be an easy addition to just about any home. Look at that sweet sweet face!

Snakefoot was adopted as an older gentleman at nearly 8 years old. He was very loved for the short amount of time he had left. He passed away less than a year later in December of 2020 due to kidney failure. He was his owners first greyhound and was very loved. "My life was blessed beyond measure because Snake was a part of it. He gave the best hugs and loved his family so much! He will be greatly missed. RIP Oaks Snakefoot. "

Carter is a young white male with black spots. He never actually raced. He and the rest of his litter ended up being retired straight out of race training at the same time and we ended up taking all 4 of them. Carter is a very shy and seems like he hasn't been handled a lot. He will come up to people cautiously but needs work on walking on leash and building his confidence in new situations. He freezes on leash when scared. His sire is Dave the Dog and his Dam is Topaz Lass. Dave seems to throw some genetically shy dogs and we have placed quite a few of his pups. All of the dogs we have placed have become wonderful pets though that are very loving with their families. They just need some time to get comfortable. Carter is a small guy around 65lbs. He turned 2 on May 26th. He did pass his cat and small dog tests. He will cautiously come up to his foster mom for love sometimes and bounce and play bow to get her to play then at other times he is nervous and timid around her and won't take treats. He is probably the most timid guy in the litter. He really is uncomfortable on leash right now and new things like the ceiling fan scare him. He will warm up with exposure and some patience. Be sure to look at his other pictures to see some of him as a tiny baby.

Carter is on medical hold for heartworm treatment that will last about 2 months. He is expected to be cleared for adoption around Sept 10th.

Carter was adopted by the vet that fostered him during his heartworm treatment.He passed away suddenly from cancer in December of 2020 at the age of nine and a half. He will be missed.

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 at the end of 2014 at 8 years old. She became a regular at the Carolina Renaissance faire where she worked with her mom who was an artist there. She also traveled to the Arizona Renaissance Festival with her mom. She was a faire favorite and everyone that met her loved her. She passed away just 2 years later at the age of 10 of bone cancer. She will always shine in my memory as my favorite renfaire dog, beloved friend, and sweet companion to my little Italian Greyhounds. You are loved and missed sweetheart!!!

Etta just arrived from Daytona Beach. She turned 5 on March 19th. Etta actually retired in October of 2013 and has been living with her trainer since then in her home. She was supposed to be a mom, but there are no litters listed on the racing database, so we aren't sure if that ever happened. Etta raced 118 races in Abilene, Bluffs Run, Jefferson County, and Daytona Beach Tracks. She raced at 61lbs so is a mid-sized girl. Her sire is Iceman Brutus* and her dam is Rocking Jade. We placed one of her littermates years ago too. She is supposed to be calm and friendly and will talk to you. Since her trainer chose her out of all the greyhounds in the kennel to keep as a pet she must have a very special personality. Etta has a beautiful shiny coat. She is being fostered with small dogs and does well with them. She was initially a little interested in cats during her cat test but lost interest in them once one slapped her. We think she should be able to live with cats with a little training and supervision at first. Etta likes kids and has lived with one in her trainers home.

Etta was adopted in 2015 and passed away in December of 2020 due to cancer. She brought us so much joy with her food obsession, talks and verbal bossing. She has left a huge empty spot in our family and in our hearts.

Eureka is a beautiful dark brindle female that raced at 62lbs. She just turned 3 on April 4th. She is a happy, sweet, friendly girl that has made herself very comfortable in her foster home in just a short time. She seems like she will be laid back and well behaved. She is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design and is a littermate to another of our available dogs Stimulus. She is smart girl and managed to open the latch to her dog run at the vets office and got out to hang out with her brother Stimulus (who also escaped) and the clinic cat. The three of them were out together all night and the cat was unharmed so she definitely passed that cat test. She has paid no attention to the tiny dog in her foster home either but she did manage to get out of her crate one time so may be a bit of a houdini. This is such a cute sweet girl with the biggest, most expressive eyes.

Eureka was adopted in 2012 and called Yuri. She lived until she passed away from osteosarcoma in 2020 at 10.5 years old. Yuri will be remembered with every crinkle of a cheese wrapper, to-go order of sushi, walk outside, errand in the car and evening lullaby. Seeing the bed perfectly made up without your usual nesting of the comforter just doesn't seem right. You are always in our hearts. We love you, Yuri Dog.

Kimmie is a brood that just arrived from a greyhound breeding faciliity in the Jacksonville Fl area. She is a daughter of the famous Dodgem By Design and is 7 years old. DOB June 24, 2004. She raced at 62 lbs and is a beautiful, brindle girl that doesn't look her age and doesn't have much white on her face yet. For whatever reason she didn't actually ever end up having puppies and didn't actually have much of a racing career either because of a broken hock early in her career. The hock is totally healed and you can't even see where it was broken now. She is very friendly, happy and loving with people. Kimmie passed her cat and small dog testing and has been fine with a small dog in her foster home after an initial sniff. She loves to play with stuffed toys that squeak and stole stuffed toy football of the shelf at Petco and laid on a bed squeaking it and playing with it for much of the day. She was a huge hit at her first meet and greet at Petco going up to kids and grownups for love. She is a confident girl that wasn't phased in the least by all the people, dogs and attention. She is a fun girl that would be another that would probably excel as a Therapy Dog.

Kimmie had many wonderful years with her family even though she was adopted as an older girl. She lived to the ripe old age of 16 years old and passed away in 2020. She loved to chase balls until the end even though her back legs wouldn't always allow her to run. She will be missed.

Gavin is a gorgeous guy that turned 3 on Nov 4th. He raced at 76lbs. He is doing well in his foster home with the small dogs and cats there so would be excellent for a home with small animals. Gavin loves playing with toys and the other dogs in his foster home. Although he is very shy, he warmed up to his foster family quickly and is very loving with his foster family. His trainers at the racing kennels said that he became very affectionate once he got to know them too and was only very shy initially. We think that a home without young, noisy children would be better for Gavin because of his shyness. It is only because of his shyness, Gavin is such a sensitive, gentle guy that we are sure he would never harm anyone or anything. While he has warmed up to his foster family quickly, he still tends to run away from visitors and people he doesn't know, so a quiet home without a lot of visitors and activity would probably suit him best. Gavin is likely to always be a real homebody that will be nervous out of his comfort zone. New things just make him very nervous. Because timid dogs tend to bolt when scared Gavin's ideal home would have a safely fenced yard for him to play in. Gavin's shyness is caused by not being handled by new people and exposed to new things as a puppy during that brief socialization window. He was never abused in any way and actually was very attached to his trainers. Gavin wants his family to know that even if he gets nervous and runs away the first time he meets them, he has a lot of love to give if they will just give him a little time to come out of his shell. Gavin is SUCH a sweet, loveable guy and is just gorgeous. If you have patience and a little time Gavin will reward you with all of his love. This is such a sweet, gorgeous, well behaved boy! Be sure to click on his other pictures. He is very photogenic and his foster home has taken lots of pictures of him.

Gavin was adopted in 2012 and lived 8 happy years with his family. He crossed the bridge in 2020 just shy of 11 years old. RIP Gavin.

Rocky seems like a friendly, happy guy that likes everyone he meets including the children in his foster home. He loves to give kisses. He is very smart and has learned quickly how to be a well behaved house dog. He learned how to walk on slippery wood floors by watching the other dogs do it and does stairs with no problem.

He quickly got up to the top A level there. He also raced at Sanford Orlando before moving to Birmingham and he raced at A level at both of those tracks too.
