Miles just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track Kennel. He also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida. Miles has been promised to our group since he was a puppy. He was named for one of our volunteer's dogs that passed away. We first met Miles at around 8 months old at his farm in Texas and have followed him growing up through training and his career of 81 races. We have photos of him along the way and he even has his own Facebook page for his followers. Miles will turn 4 on December 10th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Flirtatious. Miles is a smaller guy that raced at just 68lbs and is a stocky muscular guy, so is pretty short for that weight. He wasn't a great racer, mainly winning at the lower levels and only briefly getting up into the top A level one time. He was retired because he broke a back toe in his last race. Our vet amputated that toe and unless you count the toes you won't even notice one is missing. He definitely doesn't notice and has felt better since the problem toe came off. He is still on a vet hold until his stitches come out, but is nearly healed up. Miles is a very outgoing guy that loves everyone he meets, kids and adults alike. He bounces happily to see you when you get home, but calms down nicely. He will stand next to you for petting for nearly as long as you will pet him. Although he is mostly quiet in his crate and crates well, he sometimes makes some noise. He probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog, because when he barks, it is when he can hear or see his foster family outside in the yard. He wants to be outside too. He does potty nicely on walks and walks nicely on leash so wouldn't require a fenced yard. He gets along great with other dogs large and small and has been living with an Italian Greyhound in his foster home. He passed his cat test easily with a still cat and even a walking cat. He just casually sniffed without much interest. After the test was over, he saw another cat run across the room and got excited though. He definitely will need some further training and close supervision in a home with a playful cat that runs around. Miles is a very sweet boy that doesn't seem to be worried or nervous and loves people.

Fuzzy just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She also raced at Dubuque and Naples Ft Myers. Fuzzy raced 131 races and won some. She competed in a couple of stakes races too. Fuzzy raced at 61lbs and will turn 4 on December 5th. Her sire is Boc's Blast Off and her dam is Superior Peace. Fuzzy is very happy and outgoing and loves attention. She loves other dogs of all sizes and gets playful and bouncy wanting to play with them. She passed her cat easily and wanted nothing to do with the cat after her first sniff led to a smack by the cat. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Fuzzy passed her test with small dogs as well, but because of her playfulness with other dogs really tiny dogs might get accidentally hurt. She would love a home with a medium or large dog though. Fuzzy crates nicely and loves belly and ear rubs. She is a real sweetheart!!!

Templeton is from a litter that was all named for Charlotte's Web characters. Templeton was the very intelligent rat in the story. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until September 28th. His sire is Seldom Told and his dam is B My Erica. We met this litter of puppies a year ago, when they were small, on a trip to the Bolton Farm in Florida. Templeton never had an official race because he was just was not fast enough. He was pulled out of the one race he was supposed to race at the last minute. Several pictures of him and his litter as puppies is up at the Sanford Orlando Race Track, on the rail though. We have a photo of it in his pictures. We do have a few pictures of the litter from our trip to his farm last year. He was an excellent traveler on the trip back from Florida. Templeton seems pretty calm and quiet for such a young guy. He is a mid sized guy at 73lbs. Fearless and confident, he strolled right across the shiny hardwood floors without any trouble and the vacuum didn't phase him either. Templeton settled into his crate nicely and was quiet there too. He chatters his teeth when excited - some greyhounds do this and we think it is really cute. Templeton is a happy boy that comes running to see you with his tail wagging. Very sweet guy!

Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Cluster just arrived from the adoption kennel at the Jacksonville Race Course. She raced in the Lester Raines Kennel but retired in October of 2018. She was placed locally and was with her adopter in Jacksonville for about 4 months before being returned to the track adoption kennel. We just picked her up on a group track trip and brought her into a foster home, so she didn't have to stay in the kennel. Cluster is a gorgeous, shiny, black female with a small white blaze on her nose, white chest and white socks. Her sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is Kelsos Jenna. We placed her littermate Kelsos Rudy last November and a dog that has the same mom Kelsos BlueSmoke too. Cluster is a confident, happy girl. She can be a bit bossy at first so may need to be in a home with a male dog that doesn't mind having a bossy girlfriend (most don't) or a more submissive female. Cluster lived as an only dog with her previous family but she seems to be more comfortable with other dogs around and is doing great in her foster home with several other dogs. Cluster is VERY outgoing with people and doesn't seem to be stressed by the move from Florida into a foster home. She prances into a new home with her head and tail high and wagging. She goes straight up to everyone she meets happily for affection and usually tries to put her paws up on your chest to give hugs. We are discouraging the hugs, since she is a big dog, even though it is pretty sweet and cute. Her previous owner said she had growled a few times when being handled by strangers, but the original adoption kennel never saw any growls directed at humans and we haven't either. We weren't able to get much info on context of when the growls occurred from her, but in our experience, it usually happens when a dog is laying down or sleeping. She loved the kids she was introduced to, but because of the reported growls, we think a home without small kids would be best for her. She has been fine with the small dogs she has met but still needs testing with cats. This girl is personality plus and so stunning! If you want a happy fun girl that is full of personality, Cluster could be the one.

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. Louise was in an adoptive home for about a month but their male greyhound never seemed to like having another dog in the house and seemed withdrawn and depressed. So they are honoring his wishes to be an only dog and Louise is looking for another home. Her family reports that it isn't anything Louise has done, she is a really sweet girl that is very friendly and loving.

Gimpy
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Kaage Evans, GA
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

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 did a complete amputation to remove the entire painful toe. She will be able to run and play and won't even notice she is missing a toe. She loved running and playing with the other dogs in her foster home even with the bad toe. Her toe amputation was June 13th and she is healed up and ready to go home now. 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 around 65lbs. 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.

Tory just arrived from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track with her two sisters Lee Peg Mator and Lee Peg Goodluck. She is a 62lb, black female that just turned 2 on April 4th. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakotas Peggey. She raced 27 races at the Sanford Orlando race track before retiring. She only won one of those races,so had a short career. She passed her cat and small dog tests at the track so should be able to live with either. Tory is pretty calm but has her playful moments. She is friendly and goes up to people for affection. More as we get to know her.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Willow
Age:

Color/Gender:
Fawn Female
Cat Tolerance:

Yes

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Willow is a very tiny girl that came in initially from the Daytona Beach Race Track on Oct 19th of 2016. She has only 29 races listed in 2015 at Sanford Orlando, Dubuque and Orange Park and never actually raced at Daytona Beach. She ended up being off from racing for a year having trouble with one of her toes. Eventually they had the problem toe amputated, so it wouldn't bother her anymore, and it is long since healed. Her racing owner decided to go ahead and retire her so we got her after the toe amputation. Willow is a tiny, fawn, female that weighs just 53lbs.  Dark sable tips on some of her fawn fur, gives her a very beautiful look. Her sire is Afleet Alex and her dam is WW Crystal Farm.  She is described as a bit higher energy, happy, waggy and very outgoing. She has had a salivary gland that leaks since before we got her, so she has a little fold under her skin under her head. It is nothing to worry about and doesn't bother her a bit according to our vets. Willow has been in a home since she was adopted in 2016. They have recently reported what sounds like some separation anxiety based accidents in her kennel when left alone.  We had her checked by our vet to rule out a physical cause and she is fine. She may just need to be in a home with another dog for company. So far she has done really well in her foster home with other dogs and hasn't had any accidents. Willow will celebrate her 6th birthday on August 28th. She did not pass her cat test so needs a home without cats. Willow is being fostered with small dogs and is doing great with them. She was good with her trainers children ages 5-11. She can be vocal in her kennel so won't be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Willow travels really well and settled into her foster home right away. She is so tiny that she curled up in a small rocking chair in her foster home and went to sleep. Yes we have pictures of that. She is the first greyhound that has ever done that in her foster mom's home. The most recent photos of her are the ones with more white on her face. The others were taken when she first arrived. Willow is a sweet friendly girl that is very happy and outgoing. You would never know she is 6 years old.
