IMPORTANT! As of January 1st 2018 our requested minimum contribution for a dog went up to $325 due to increasing vet fees!
 
A list of all the greyhounds pending adoption through Greyhound Crossroads. Although some of these dogs have been on here a long time, they are not available for adoption. In most cases the dogs are safely in their adoptive homes and their owners have not yet made a contribution towards their adoption and/or completed the paperwork to make it official.

Fired Up arrived with two other puppies Paradise and Paragraph but isn't from the same litter. He is a shiny black boy that is slightly older than the other puppies being born on on September 18th. His sire is Flying Fired Up and his dam is Fiesta Pauline. He is a wild, friendly puppy that is around 50lbs and will get up into the 70s most likely in the next couple of months. His owner decided not to race the pups probably due to racing being ended in Florida and most of the race tracks in the country shutting down. Greyhound puppies are very expensive to raise and train for the race track when it is unlikely they will have tracks to race at when they are old enough to race. Fired Up has had none of the training the retired racers get and has just been on a farm running and playing with this littermates so far. He has not been collar or leash trained yet. He has had no potty training or manners training and has never been in a house before. He was at the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel for a few weeks so has had a little bit of crate training there. Greyhound puppies need large fence yards with plenty of room to run. Fired Up will need a home with dog training experience and puppy experience that is willing to work with him to teach him all the things he needs to know to be a good pet. Because he is a big, excitable, wild puppy, he needs a home with older kids or no kids. He is just too wild and rough to live with toddlers that he could knock down. Greyhound puppies are wild and hyper like any other puppy but are bigger than most and can run at nearly 45mph so can be much more destructive than most puppies. They are nothing like the calm, well behaved, adult couch potatoes we typically get when we get retired racers. More as we get to know him. Fired Up is a happy, friendly guy. He is picking up on collar and leash training very fast. He still resists going in his crate but crates pretty well once he is in there. He does like to bark and is pretty vocal. He will happily bark to get your attention when playing and will bark in his crate if not corrected. He corrects very easily. He is learning not to jump on people and seems to be a fast learner. He is very sweet and will just stand next to you for love for a long time. He seems pretty calm for a greyhound puppy. He still loves to play and run though and needs a lot of exercise. He is doing good with the 15lb Italian greyhound in his foster home that lets him know that he doesn't want to play with him. Fired up does play pretty rough, so would have to have a lot of supervision and rules about playing gently with small dogs if he goes to a home with small dogs just because of his size and activity level.

T's Envoy
Racing Name:
T's Envoy
Pet/Kennel Name:
Envoy
Age:
Almost 3
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
No
Fostered by (location):
Frymire (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Pending to the Abrams family of Athens TX 11.24.19

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.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Garrett Family of Lexington SC

Diza is a pretty black female that raced at 62lbs. She is just arriving from the Ward farm in Florida. Diza has been on the farm since she retired in March waiting on a group to take her. She retired from the Daytona Beach Race track and also raced at Naples Ft Myers and Palm Beach Tracks. She raced 161 races. Diza turned 5 on March 1st and raced 161 races. She is owned by Atascocita Racing which is how she got the beginning of her name - all their dogs have that same prefix. Diza's sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Atascocita Felda. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either of them. Diza did fine at her first outing and loved it. She was amazed at all the dog stuff on the shelves at PetSmart too.

Bebe came in from the Waverider Kennel at Daytona Beach. She is a 62lb black female that is the daughter to a girl we placed, Wanna Rumble and we also placed her grandmother, Wheelie Cool. Her sire is Pat C Clement. We have been waiting on her to retire for some time now. The owners of her mother are fostering her and plan to adopt her if she fits in well with their family. So Bebe is not available for adoption at this time. Bebe raced 170 races and got up to B level winning some and placed a lot. She turned 4 on July 13th. Bebe has been around children from 5 to 13 in her racing kennel. The kids help their mom care for the dogs and curl up in her kennel with her and take naps when they get tired. Bebe passed her cat and small dog tests easily and is living with a kitten that she is good with. She has settled into foster care well and is very sweet and well behaved. Bebe has a rub mark on her nose from wearing her muzzle.

Adoption Status: Pending to the Gruber family 3.10.19

Fox came in initially from the CTW kennel in Wheeling WV. He is a cute little red male that raced at 69lbs. He turned 5 on September 18th. His sire is CTW Base Camp and his Dam is CTW Melodramatic. Fox is a calm, quiet male. He is pretty good on leash and well behaved. He is a happy sweet boy that should be an easy addition to any family. So handsome too. He is doing great with the small white italian Greyhound in his foster home and was afraid of the cat he met and wouldn't go near it. Fox travels very well and just gets in the car and lays down calmly. He is very snuggly and loves people. After being in an adoptive home for nearly two years Fox mistook an outside cat for a bunny or a squirrel and killed it, so is now looking for another home. We stress to adopters that no greyhound should ever be trusted outside with cats because they could mistake a cat in the bushes for something else. Greyhounds are only good with indoor kitties and shouldn't ever be around outside cats. Fox is still fine with indoor kitties but because of this mistake he has to find a home with no cats at all.
