Sweet Senior! Witty is a girl that was originally placed by another group up North, NGAP, years ago. Her owner moved to NC and was only able to keep two of her dogs where she moved and had to re-home Witty. She said that Witty is a goofy, playful girl that is really sweet. Witty retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2012. She raced 55 races there and only won 2 of those. She did place some, even if she didn't win, so was able to keep racing for a little while. Witty is an adorable black female that is starting to get white in circles around her eyes giving her a very cute goggle look. Witty raced at 65lbs and turned 9 on April 16th. Since she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250. Her sire is Tempo Petrocelli and her dam is LookButDontTouch. Witty was already spayed, but she just got a fresh dental, blood work, heart worm test and anything else she needs and has a clean bill of health. Witty injured her tail at some point previously and had to have it removed so she has a cute little nub now. WItty is a sweet girl that is friendly and silly. She is getting along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is good with small dogs as well and passed her cat test without much interest so should be fine to live in a home with either.

Hooyah is an extra large, red brindle, male that came in from the Melbourne Race Track in FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras. Hooyah only raced 11 races, winning only one of those and usually finishing toward the back of the pack. He was retired young when he was just 2 years old. He has been in an adoptive home since June of 2017 and they were calling him Butler but he also answers to Big Guy or Big Boy. Hooyah celebrated his 3rd birthday on March 19th. He raced at a whopping 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. Hooyah is a calm, well behaved guy. He wanted to snuggle on the car trip and stood with his head on the driver's shoulder a lot of the trip. While he was at the vet, one of the clinic cats befriended him and curled up with him while he was coming out of his anesthesia. He seems fine with cats and small dogs too. Hooyah is quite friendly with people but can be a bit timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes. Most greyhounds do this at first but relax with time and eventually do OK on shiny floors. That hasn't been the case with Hooyah though. Even after living in a house with shiny floors, he can't seem to get brave enough to do them. He is going to need a home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs so he doesn't have to walk on shiny floors. Hooyah is not very good on stairs either so would do better in a one story house. He could do 4 or 5 stairs to get outside to go potty but long flights of stairs are scary for him.  Hooyah has an interesting brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side so almost looks like a red dog when photographed from that side. He has a lot more brindle striping on the other and looks like a brindle dog in photos taken from that side. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference. It almost looks like you are looking at a completely different dog from one side to the other. Hooyah loved the kids in his first foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. He hasn't had one accident in his foster home. He is always happy to see his foster dad come home from work and bounces happily, but is otherwise pretty calm for a young dog. Hooyah is very friendly and loving. He was in an adoptive home for awhile so is already home acclimated. Hooyah was returned because he seemed to have some pain in his neck or back and he would whine sometimes. Their vet wasn't able to find anything and wasn't able to find a cause. Hooyah has not shown any sign of having any pain whatsoever since we got him back. We kept him for observation for a month to be sure. Our vets have cleared him for adoption because they have found nothing wrong with him other than being very overweight. We do have him on a diet. Hooyah is a very affectionate sweet sensitive guy that will be a very loving pet.
