Bellagio just arrived from Waverider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced at Derby Lane in FL and Wheeling Downs in WV. He raced 120 races and was pretty good staying at A and B level for most of the time he was racing at Daytona. He is a small guy that raced at just 67lbs. He will turn 4 on May 2nd. Bellagio's sire is Kiowa WW Brother and his dam is WW Risky Whiskey. His trainer says that once he warms up to you he will follow you around and just lean into you for affection. He seemed a little overwhelmed when he first arrived but was still calmly friendly. But if you start petting him he will lean right into your leg and stare up at you wanting more petting. He is a very calm guy that is good on leash. Bellagio seems like a very sweet boy. He is fine with the small dogs he has been around and is very used to being handled by the kids of his trainer. He passed his cat test easily.

Alva just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race track. She also raced at Wheeling Downs in West Virginia.

Her sire is Kelso's Locknload and her dam is Kelso's Lab Top. Alva seems like a calmly, friendly girl. She did fine with the small dog at the adoption kennel and with the small white dog she was tested with when she got to us. She also passed her cat test. She just carefully sniffed the cat and then lost interest and checked out the rest of the room. When she was vetted she tested positive for Lymes Disease so is on an antibiotic for that. She seems like a very sweet girl.

Tonto just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced at Sarasota, Ebro, Flagler and Naples Ft Meyers Race tracks so has traveled around some. He raced 98 races and was pretty good getting up to the top A level a few times. He is a small male that raced at just 67lbs. He will turn 4 on June 16th. His sire is the famous Boc's Blast Off and his dam is Superior Rasta. Tonto seems like a very friendly, happy, little guy. He seems pretty confident and didn't seem nervous on the trip up. 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.

Her sire is the famous SH Avatar and her dam is WW's Tropical. Camile's entire litter were all named for hurricanes.

She is used to being around her trainers kids and liked the two small kids she met here. 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. We couldn't get her to go near the cat again she put on the brakes and wouldn't even walk near the cat. She did fine with the small dog she met and just sniffed him appropriately.

Dax
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
White Male with Dark Brindle Spots
Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Llewellyn, Simpsonville SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

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.

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.

Gracie
Age:

Black Female

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

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.
