Velma just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park in Florida. She also raced a few races at Wheeling in WV and Naples Ft Meyers in Florida. She was a pretty good racer getting up to the top A level. She ran her last race in January and hasn't raced since then so was either taking a break or had an injury she was rehabbing from. Velma is a tiny black female that raced at just 58lbs. She will turn 4 on July 29th. Her sire is Definate Opinion and her dam is Arkans BD Spring. She is a bouncy, sweet, people-oriented girl that passed her cat and small dog tests easily. She was much more interested in interacting with the people than seeing the cats or small dog.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Fired Up
Age:
6 months
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Older Children Only
Fostered by (location):
Johnson, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Hayes family of Greenville SC, 3.31.19

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.

Fostered by (location):
Slaton, Bluffton SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the Czapiewski family of Greenville SC

Tara is a brood mom that we met on one of our track trips. She came in from the Bolton Farm in Florida. She raced at the Bolton kennel at Sanford Orlando most of her career. She also raced briefly at Flagler and Naples Ft Myers. Tara was a big star the race track and won an amazing 9 top A level races IN A ROW. She was so fast that her finishes were described as Electrifying, Cyclonic, Explosive, and Super Sonic. Unless she was bumped, blocked or actually fell, she almost always won. A true superstar that was retired at the top A level in November of 2015. She went back to the farm to have pups then. We got to meet some of them on one of our group's track trips. Now she has been retired from mom duties and is available for adoption. She turned 6 on January 12th and raced at 61lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Fuzzys Autumn. This is a very special girl and her owner and trainer want to stay in touch with her pet owners and get updates. Tara has been in a adoptive home since November, but their dog bit her and she was uncomfortable around him after that. They think she would do better in another home. Tara is more comfortable around women and can be a little timid of men at first. Tara passed her cat test and just sniffed the cat. She was fostered with small dogs and was fine with them too.

Gruber (Spartanburg, SC)
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.

Fostered by (location):
Cater, Walhalla SC
Adoption Status: Pending to the McMahon Family of Greenville SC

Sweet Senior! Leena raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers, Sarasota, and Palm Beach Race Tracks. She was moved around a lot looking for a track she could be competitive at. After 25 races and only 1 win her owners decided she wasn't cut out to be a racer and retired her.  We placed a couple other pups her mom had too. Leena is a pretty, red brindle female with white on her feet, chest and tail that can be sensitive and a bit timid at first. DOB 10/17/06, she is 11 and will turn 12 on October 17th. Since she is a senior Leena qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Leena has been in an adoptive home since December of 2010. Her family is having to move in with their father to care for him and they cannot bring their 3 greyhounds with them. They have made the decision to re-home their 3 senior greyhounds Leena, Rumble and Razor. Leena and Rumble are both 11 and very bonded. They sleep curled up together and often choose to sleep in the same crate together and do not like if if the are put into crates separately. It would be nice to find them a home together, but we understand that may not be possible, so will consider placing them individually. Razor is 8 years old and his owners believe he would do fine without the other two. All have the same sire Maryville Rumble and all are brindles. Leena's dam is Too Shy To Say. They have been living with cats. They have not lived with kids but have been fine with children that they have met. The photos we have now of them are from when they were younger.

Adoption Status: Pending to McMahon Family of Greenville SC

Sweet Senior! Rumble is a mid sized 73lb, friendly, brindle guy. He raced 9 races years ago at Jefferson County Kennel Club in Florida before they closed. DOB is 3/27/07 so he is a senior that qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. He was adopted way back in 2009 out of our Tri County Tech program and has been in a home since then. HIs family is having to move in with their father to take care of him and will not be able to bring their 3 senior greyhounds with them. They are asking for our help rehoming all three of their dogs. Rumble is very laid back guy. He is a leaner and wants to be with people. He is very bonded with their 11 year old female named Leena and we would love to place them together if we can. We understand that finding someone to take two 11 year olds at the same time is not something that may be possible, so we will consider placing them separately too. Their other 8 year old greyhound, Razor, would be fine being placed separately. All three dogs have the same sire Maryville Rumble. Rumble's dam is Regall Redrocket. The photos of Rumble were from when he first arrived. All three of the dogs have been living with cats. They have not lived with children but have been great with the kids they have met.
