Available Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. If you have not adopted from us previously please fill out an application . If you adopted from us previously please contact your area representative

Most greyhounds can live with cats and small dogs with careful introductions and supervision. Please note that the results of the cat and small dog testing listed by each hound below may be the result of only one encounter with only one small dog or cat. Even cat and small dog tolerant greyhounds, MUST be introduced to new animals very carefully and supervised at first. Greyhounds do not usually encounter small dogs or cats in racing kennels and your animals may look very different than the ones we used for testing and get a different reaction. Please see our Cats and Greyhounds page for tips on how to safely introduce cats and small dogs to greyhounds.

Most greyhounds are great with well behaved kids. Although most of our foster homes do not have kids, we introduce our greyhounds to children and watch the dog to see if they have the temperament for living with kids. Unless noted, the dogs may not have experience living with kids or prolonged contact with children. Please see our Kids and Greyhounds page for tips on managing kids and greyhounds together.

SPECIAL SENIOR! 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 them. Her birthday is March 28th 2010 so she is 9 now. As a senior she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee 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 and she didn't like them. 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. In the last 6 months Gracie has only gotten really grumpy with her housemate twice, once over food and once over her space. We have 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. She has been started on thyroid medication and is doing great in her foster home with several other dogs. Although Gracie is doing great with the dogs in her foster home she definitely needs a home with no other dogs. She goes to a greyhound playgroup and is fine playing with the other dogs there. She has only gotten upset enough to bite another dog twice in 4 years time. Although we don't want to place her in a home with other dogs, she is OK almost all the time with other dogs and is very easy to manage. 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 although friendly, isn't one to seek out affection and attention all the time. You will hardly know she is there unless she whines. Gracie can be whiny sometimes and her foster mom is working on correcting that behavior and making sure she isn't accidentally rewarded for it. She is doing much better with the whining already.

Fostered by (location):
Elrod, Greenville SC Area
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Submissive is a return that was initially adopted back in November of 2013 before he was even 2 years old. He had broken his leg while training to race in Dubuque. We were asked to take him before his race career even started. His leg was healed up before being adopted to his first family. He was renamed Meno then. Although his home started out to be a good one and he was happy and spoiled, things can change over time. We just got him back from what appeared to be a poor situation. He had gotten heart worms but his owner hadn't been willing to treat it for some time. He is now being treated for heartworm and our vet is expecting him to make a full recovery. Although Meno wasn't in the best home situation he is a wonderful sweet guy. He loves to be on couches and beds and prefers those to dog beds. Meno's sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen and his dam is Slatex Sassy. He is a very smart guy that taught himself how to take off his own muzzle as a young dog before we got him. Meno travels well and is a very laid back boy that just wants love and a soft place to sleep. Meno has lived with cats and loves them. He also is good with other dogs of all sizes and kids. He lived with a female greyhound in his previous home until she passed away. He will turn 8 on March 23rd.

Angus just came in from the Daytona Beach Race track with his brother Astro. He started out race training at the Tri State Track in West Virginia but only just schooled there and was sent to Daytona Beach to continue schooling. He didn't show much speed and finished so far behind the other dogs that he got an OOP on his race record. That means he was out of the picture and couldn't be seen in the race video because he was so far behind. After some time schooling he got a little better and actually raced 5 real races, but just wasn't fast enough so was retired in October. He just came to us from the track. Angus raced at 77lbs and turned 2 on September 8th. His sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and his dam is Dizzy Diva. Angus passed his cat test at the track but failed a subsequent cat test so needs a home with no cats. He has been fine with the small dogs he met. Angus gets along well with his two greyhound roommates in his foster home. He has mastered stairs inside and out and he loves playing with his toys. Angus is gentle, affectionate and loves people. He is a confident boy and does great on leash walks.

Fostered by (location):
Llewellyn, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Nelson family of Chapin SC

Dax just arrived from Wave Rider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced briefly at the Orange Park Race Track. He raced a total of 64 races and did get up to the top A level briefly. Dax raced at 77lbs and just turned 3 on Jan 3rd. His sire is the famous Dragon Fire and his dam is Barts Sweet Pea. Dax has a big personality and is pretty energetic for a greyhound. He is very outgoing and friendly and goes straight up to meet everyone he sees. He wags so hard that he injured his tail as a pup and lost half of it. He is pretty excitable and wants to jump up and give hugs to everyone he meets. We are working on toning down his enthusiasm a bit. He is curious and wants to check out everything. Dax seems like a very confident guy that isn't afraid of anything. He is playful and goofy. His trainer says he mumbles and talks to himself in his kennel and will carry on a conversation with you if you talk back to him. Dax is very used to being around kids because his trainer brings her kids to the kennel with her. We marked him older kids only because of him jumping on people. He would knock a toddler or small child down in his excitement without more training. Dax liked the small dog he was around that lived in the racing kennel and did fine with the small dog he met when he arrived with us too. He initially showed a little interest in the cat he met but lost interest pretty fast after sniffing and having the cat hiss at him a few times.  If you want a greyhound that is personality plus, Dax is your guy. Dax is a strong excitable guy that does pull on the leash when excited so will need some more leash training.

Scout just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced at Tri-State in West Virginia, and Ebro and Sarasota in Florida. He raced 66 races and did get up to the top A level briefly. Scout is a large brindle boy that raced at 79lbs. He turned 3 on September 1st. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Diamond N Ruff. Scout is a very friendly, happy guy. He is a big strong boy that needs a little work on not pulling on leash. He seems like a confident curious guy that has a great personality. He was roaching (sleeping on his back with his feet in the air) the first day if foster care. That is a sign of being very comfortable and relaxed. If he even sees you look his way he will wag his tail happily. He passed his small dog test at the track without much interest and also did fine with our small dog. He was initially very interested in the cat but did lose interest after the cat slapped him, then he checked out the rest of the room. We caught him stealing glances back at the cat so we weren't completely convinced that he had completely given up chasing the cat though. We think he probably would do better in a home with no cats. He liked the kids he met too and is used to being around the kids in his trainer's kennel.

Camile was initially very excitable around the cat, but after just one slap she decided that cats were not something she wanted to get close to.

He wags and goes right up to everyone he sees. Very sweet. He got really excited to see the small dog at first but it was always just appropriate sniffing trying to figure out who this new small friend was. By the end of the meeting they were trying to get each other to play. He was initially quite curious about the cat as well but backed off as soon as he got slapped and we couldn't get him to go back over to the cat. He should be trainable by a confident cat that will let him know who is boss. He seems like a very friendly, enthusiastic dog that wants to meet anything and everyone.

He loves to jump up and give hugs so we are working on that. Sum Dog has personality to spare.
