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 to get on our waiting list. 

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.

Willow just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track on Oct 19th. She has only 29 races listed in 2015 at Sanford Orlando, Dubuque and Orange Park and never actually raced at Daytona Beach. She has not raced in a year due to a broken toe and was off for it to heal up for months. When it didn't heal up like it should have and was causing her pain, they had a vet amputate the toe. The amputation wasn't done properly, so it still caused her pain and had to have more work done on it. It finally was fixed up and she can walk on it without any problem, but they were afraid to race her again, so Willow hasn't raced in a year and has been at the track kennel for that entire time. She is a tiny, dark red, female that weighs just 53lbs. Willow has dark sable tips on some of her red fur which gives her a very unusual dark coloring. She is described as a bit higher energy, happy, waggy and very outgoing. She gets very excited to meet people and sometimes jumps up so we are working on that. She celebrated her 3rd birthday on August 28th. Willow did not pass her cat test so needs a home without cats. She still needs testing with small dogs. She was good with her trainers children ages 5-11. This is a super sweet girl with a great personality and a lot of it. Precious and so beautiful!  UPDATE!  Willow is returning to GC for a new start not because of problems, but just a change in her family locations.  She will be available for adoption right away.  What a sweet, beautiful little girl looking for a new family to love her!

Doc Of Deadwood
Racing Name:
Doc Of Deadwood
Pet/Kennel Name:
Doc
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
No
Fostered by (location):
Glymph, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available for adoption

Doc came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in February. He only has one race listed and he finished last. He wasn't much better in his previous schooling races. His trainers say that he would be a good candidate for dog sports because he is injury free and just not quite fast enough for the professional track. He is very young and just turned 2 on May 27th. His sire is the famous Cayman Went and his dam is D's Overthemoon. Doc is a big brindle guy that raced at 80lbs. Doc was a little overwhelmed and nervous when he first arrived, but warmed up in his foster home and quickly became a happy, goofy guy. When he first came in, he would shy away if you reached for him, but would come right up if another greyhound was getting petted. He needed a little work on leash because he tried to backup or bolt if something surprised him. Doc is very quiet in his crate and is being fostered in a townhouse, so should be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Doc was adopted March 1st and was renamed Tigger. He is being returned to us because he growled at a child that was leaning on him and petting him, to comfort him, after he had already had a stressful day that included an upset tummy from being fed too much and a bath. A growl is the only way a dog has to say he doesn't like something and actually shows that the dog would rather warn than actually bite. Doc has always been a sweet guy that likes people and even kids, but will need to be placed in a home where everyone understands the old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie". Many dogs don't like to have someone lean on them or pet them when they are laying down resting, even when awake.

Gimpy just arrived with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Mator from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. Gimpy never actually had an official race at the track due to an old right front toe injury that gave her her name. Our vet checked her toe and found that it had been partially amputated at some point long ago. But because she was a pup the bone continued to grow and was causing some pain. He is going to amputate the bone and remove the rest of the toe so that it doesn't bother her anymore. She should make a complete recovery and be able to run and play and won't even notice she is missing a toe. As it was, her toe really didn't slow her down and was something she was completely used to. She loved running and playing with the other dogs in her foster home. Her toe amputation was June 13th and she should be ready to go home after her stitches come out around June 23rd. Gimpy's sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. Since she didn't actually race we don't have a racing weight for her but she is likely to be around the size of her sisters who are 62 and 66lbs. She is young and just turned 2 on April 4th. Gimpy passed her cat and small dog tests at the track. She is being fostered with a cat and is doing fine with it. She doesn't seem to be stressed by much and was roaching (Sleeping on her back with her feet in the air which is the sign of a relaxed happy greyhound). Gimpy is doing great on hardwood floors in her foster home and loves their kids. She is friendly and goes right up to everyone for attention and seems like she is going to be a very loving pet and companion.

Mator is coming in from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Goodluck. Mator raced 34 times in maiden races for dogs that have never won a race. Sadly she never was able to win one of those races and only placed 4 times. Most of the time she was bringing up the rear. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. She just turned 2 on April 4th and raced at 66lbs. Mator is just a little less outgoing than her sisters but still friendly. She is just one that will stand back and let the others get most of the attention first. She is good on leash and pretty calm. Mator liked the kids she met. More as we get to know her.

Red Female

Fostered by (location):
Owens (Greenwood, SC)
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Mogul is a red female that just arrived from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is young and won't turn two until July 31st. Mogul was not fast enough to race but she definitely has the drive to race and chase, so we know she gave it her best shot. She really wanted to get to the cat and chase it during her cat test. The cat slapping her had no effect on her whatsoever, so she definitely can not live with kitties. With her high prey drive we figured she would not be good with small dogs either, but she showed no interest in chasing the Italian Greyhound she met. She seems like she will be fine with some small dogs with an introduction so she knows what they are. Her sire is the famous Dodgem By Design and her dam is KB's Brite Lite. Mogul is an adorable red girl with a dark curly tail that almost hangs in corkscrew at times and curls up over her back sometimes too. She has the cutest floppy ears. Mogul has a great personality and is very waggy and very happy and loves people. Mogul can be loud in her kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. She was pretty excitable around the small kids she met and wanted to get their toys and blankets, so we think she would do best in a home without small kids. Although she is very young and has a high prey drive, she does seem to calm down nicely. She had a lot going on that first day so may need to be retested with everything again later. Her foster home, describes Mogul as "personality plus".

Toppy just came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced 149 races there and was a fantastic racer, racing at the top A level nearly his entire career. At one point he won 6 A level races in a row. He raced his entire career at that track. We placed his sister Atascocita Prema so are happy to be getting him now too. Toppy turned 4 on February 13th and he raced at 71lbs. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Atascocita Golda. Toppy has very cute stand up ears. He passed his cat test with some initial interest and curiosity. He lost interest pretty fast though. Since he has been placed in a foster home with cats and is doing well with them. Toppy is a very friendly, happy guy. He goes up to everyone he meets, adults and children. He is curious about everything and seems to not be phased much by anything new. we are working on teaching him to not pull on leash because he wants to go check everything out. Toppy whined some the first day in his crate, so may not be a good apartment or townhouse dog. He did quiet down though eventually. Toppy seems like a fun guy that is pretty confident and not bothered by much.

Adoption Status: In Process to the Speight family of Lexington SC

Louise came in from the Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She raced her entire career of 107 races at that track. Louise raced at 66lbs and is a pretty red girl. She just turned 4 on May 18th. Her sire is the famous Barcelona Boss and her dam is Flying Loki. Louise is very outgoing and waggy. She loves everyone she meets adults and kids. We noticed that she seems to like to snuggle up with other dogs and people and doesn't seem to be bothered by being bumped or stepped over by other dogs. She was interested in the cat on first meeting, but after a slap from the cat did not want to go back to see it again. We think she may be trainable with cats, especially with a cat that would stand its ground. Louise has been very vocal so wouldn't be a good choice for apartment or townhome living. She is being fostered with several young kids and seems to really like them. She is a very happy friendly girl with a lot of personality. She seems pretty smart and is picking up on house rules in her foster home fast. She has gotten along great with the other greyhound and whippet in her foster home.

LN Travln Man

Pet/Kennel Name:
T Man
Age:
1.5
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Testing
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Ng, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

T Man just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Track in Florida. He is a very young guy that never had an official race. T Man was retired due to being very shy. He would run away from people trying to catch him at the end of races. He is a very shy boy and the move to the track from the farm was just too much for him. T Man is very nervous around people he doesn't know. He won't even turn 2 until November 4th, so is still a pup. His sire is Touch Tackle and his dam is DK's Tanstafel.  T Man is a genetically shy dog that isn't going to become a social butterfly with a few days or weeks. His family will need to be understanding and committed to working with him long term until he gets comfortable with them. It may take weeks, months or even a year. He may never be comfortable enough to want to go places outside his home and his family needs to be OK with him just the way he is and not expect him to change much. T Man is similar to a human with an anxiety disorder.  He is timid and shy in social settings and he is very uncomfortable outside of his familiar surroundings. This is inherited shyness and not from anything anyone did to him. Most shy dogs are also too timid to chase cats and small dogs so are able to live with them just fine. He is being fostered with cats. Since T Man never raced we don't have a racing weight for him. His foster mom is leash walking him to potty inside her fenced yard until he gets comfortable enough to let her catch him. Because he is so timid he is likely to be scared of the fast movements and loud noises that children and their toys and friends make. We would prefer to put him into a quiet home with older calm kids or no kids.
