Destin is coming in from Eric Griffin's kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 84 races starting out his career at Wheeling Downs in WV, then going to Southland in Arkansas and finally to Orange Park. He got up to the top A level so was pretty good. He was racing in A, in his last race on November 8th, when another dog ran into him and dislocated his toe. He was retired due to the toe and our vet will fix him up before he is adopted. Desoto is a sweet boy that raced at 71lbs and turned 3 on July 26th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is WW'sbemasunshine. More as we get to know him.

Hooper is coming in from Eric Griffin at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 93 races and also races at Southland in Arkansas and Wheeling WV. He got up to the top A level and was racing in A in his last race. He pulled a muscle on his inner thigh and pulled up and didn't finish that race on November 16th. It is a common injury that doesn't affect life as a pet and is only moderately painful for about a week. Greyhounds can sometimes return to racing after this type of injury. Since he was already nearly 4 years old and had a long career, the decision was made to retire him now. Hooper is a sweet boy who raced at 69lbs. His sire is Barcelona Boss and his dam is WW's Sally Field. Hooper turns 4 on December 17th. More as we get to know him.

Special Needs! Envoy initially came in from trainer AJ Grant at the Sanford Orlando Kennel Club in FL. His last race was actually at Derby Lane in September and he also raced at Dubuque earlier. He was moved to Orlando in hopes he would be competitive there, but but never had an official race at that track. He won a couple of races early on, but usually came in toward the back of the pack, so the decision was made to retire him after 20 races. We got him in October of 2018. Envoy turns 3 on November 25th. He raced at 71lbs. His sire is Flying Titanium and his dam is Flying Cesium. Envoy is a happy, silly, guy that is pretty playful and energetic for a greyhound. He is going to need a very special home. He has some space issues and has bitten 3 women that tried to move him off of furniture or bumped him when he was laying down. He has been returned two families so far and never challenged the men in those homes, so we think he would do better in a home with men only. Envoy is very friendly with women and everyone he meets, when out and about. He only growls and snaps about his space when he is laying down. Although he normally likes kids and has shown no aggression towards them, because of space issues, he needs a home with no kids. Envoy is a very, happy, sweet, guy 99.9 percent of the time, but he is going to need a very special dog experienced home that has experience with working with dogs that have space issues.

Nancy G Gracie
Pet/Kennel Name:
Gracie
Age:
9
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Yes
Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
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 prefectly for 4 years. In the last 6 months Gracie has bitten the other female dog in her home 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. Although Gracie needs a home with no other dogs, she is doing great in foster care in a home with other dogs, large and small. She goes to a greyhound playgroup and is fine playing with the other dogs there. She has only gotten upset enough to bite twice in 4 years time, so 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.
