Available Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. New greyhounds arrive about every two weeks. If you don't see what you are looking for please fill out an adoption application and we can often find what you need. Satellite foster areas include Greenville SC, Charlotte NC, Columbia SC, Greenwood SC, and Augusta GA.

IMPORTANT! As of January 1st 2018 our requested minimum contribution for a dog went up to $325 due to increasing vet fees.

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 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.

Lazarus is a light fawn male that only has 2 races listed at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced at 76lbs. He was retired young and was initially adopted in early 2014 before he even turned 2. He lived in that home for over a year before they gave him to a friend. He has been in the second home since. Lazarus now called Bug, is now looking for another home at 6 years old due to his family moving to Hawaii. Lazarus turned 6 on May 4th. His sire is the famous Flying Penske and his dam is Kelsos Isabella.  Lazarus is a very calm guy that is quiet and well behaved. Very sweet. He did pass his cat and small dog test so should be able to live in a home with cats or small dogs. He can be a little timid with new people he meets but warmed up to his families quickly. He lived with a baby in his first home. His current home says he likes kids when he meets them. Since he can be a little timid he may not enjoy being around loud rowdy young kids long term. Most timid dogs like more quiet relaxed homes.

Dutch Kylee Jo
Pet/Kennel Name:
Kylee Jo
Age:
Almost 2
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Yes

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: In Process

Kylee Jo retired from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL over a year ago and has been in an adoptive home since September of 2017. She is looking for another home because her family is too busy to give her the attention they would like to. They are gone a lot and Kylee Jo has some separation anxiety. She is fine when they leave if she is crated, but that means she has to stay in her crate for long periods of time. She may do better in a home with another dog, so she isn't completely alone when her people leave. Kylie Jo is a 63 lb red female that turned 3 on September 19th. She raced 24 races but only won 2 of those early on so was retired young. Her sire is Flying Coal City and her dam is Chasmo's Ginger. Kylee Jo passed her cat and small dog tests without much interest in either. She lived with a cat in her previous home and is being fostered with small dogs now. She has been living with a 2 year old toddler and likes her and is great with her most of the time. She has gotten annoyed enough to growl a couple of times though, so may do better in a home with older kids that require as much supervision with dogs and know how to act around dogs.  Kylee Jo is a very sweet girl that is very friendly and loves every new person that comes to her house. She loves her ears rubbed and will chatter her teeth in happiness. When she goes to the greyhound playgroups she would rather stand with the people getting petted than run around with the other dogs. She loves going for walks and is good on leash. This is a happy, waggie girl that has the biggest, prettiest eyes. She does sometimes fuss and whine in her crate when she is left so would not be a good choice for an apartment or townhouse.
