Brandy is arriving soon from Australia. He raced 35 races there but only managed to win one. He raced at Dubbo, Bathurst, and Gunnedah. His last race was November 26th of 2022. He has been living with his owner since then. Brandy is 75lbs and his DOB is Nov. 30 2019. His sire is Brad Hill Billy and his dam is Uniting Cargo. His left ear is tattooed with NIFDR. Here is his description from his owner:

Brandy is already well on his way to becoming the perfect family pet. Underneath his gorgeous exterior, he also has a beautiful, soft-natured personality to match! Brandy is a lovely dog. He is incredibly human social and just loves to make friends whenever he gets the chance! In particular, Brandy loves children. He has lived with young kids ages 5-7 as well as teenagers and was great with them all! Brandy has mostly socialised with other Greyhounds, however he has been introduced to smaller breeds too. He was recently introduced to some Cavoodles, however he was a little anxious of them and avoided them when he could. Surprisingly, Brandy has also interacted with cats and doesn’t worry about them at all. He’s a bit of an enigma but overall, any introductions with cats or dogs should be done gradually and under the recommended guidelines to make sure everyone leaves with their tails wagging! Brandy is a clean and quiet boy in his kennels. You’ll only hear from him if there is someone else around and he wants to make sure you know about it too! He is a lovely calm dog, but he is also quite playful. More than anything, Brandy loves to dip his toes in water whenever he gets the chance. Brandy is a wonderful dog and overall, just a great friend. He is sweet, playful, clean, and calm- you’ll wonder how you ever lived without him!

Skye Boo
Racing Name:
Skye Boo
Pet/Kennel Name:
Skye
Age:
9
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
McManis, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the McManis Family 6.29.24

Skye was initially adopted from another group as a small puppy. We have been asked to help rehome her due to her owner being unable to physically care for her anymore. Sky has been in a home in NC for nearly nine years. She was born on 3/25/2015. She was from an accidental litter. Her mom is RCK Raven who has her own Facebook Page: Raven's New Adventure. Her sire is RCK Rambo. Since she was from an accidental litter, she never got ear tattoos. Her former mom did a lot of training with her and she earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen when she was just 6 months old. So she knows basic obedience commands and is a very well behaved dog on leash and in public. She was returned with another 5 year old greyhound named Jojo. She has not lived with cats, kids or small dogs, but did great on her testing with all of them. Since she was returned, she has been in a foster home with cats and has done well. She seems to like every human and animal she meets. She is very sweet, friendly and bonds fast. She loves to get up on the couch and sit next to you. She will pat you with her paw to remind you to pet her. She is very calm and laid back. Be sure to look at her other photos to see cute ones of Skye as a puppy. Skye and Jojo were adopted together again a few months ago together, where they lived with a small dog. They were returned again because both girls needed a fenced yard and their owners didn't have one. Both girls are resistant to going potty on leash and like to wander around and find the perfect spot. So a fenced yard is required for Skye.

Joanna Nadine
Racing Name:
Joanna Nadine
Pet/Kennel Name:
Jojo
Age:
Almost 5
Color/Gender:
Red Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kirk Family of Durham NC 6.20.24

JoJo initially came to us as an 8 month old pup straight from a farm in Arkansas. She was the runt of the litter and only weighed 47lbs when we got her. They decided she was too small to race, so sent her to us to place in an adoptive home instead. She actually ended up growing up to be a normal smallish sized female greyhound probably weighing between 55 and 60lbs. Her new family picked out the name Joanna Nadine and called her Jojo since she was never registered and never got a racing name. Jo Jo was with the Chatham family of NC since 3/24/20 and is nearly 5 now.  She was returned to us because her mom had some physical problems and couldn't care for her and her housemate Skye. Even as a puppy, Jojo would approach everything new to sniff, rather than shying away. Now she has blossomed into a wonderfully friendly, happy, girl that is fun and bouncy. Jojo is curious about everything and will be busy checking out everything. She gives kisses freely to new people and is very outgoing. She also gets along well with other dogs, but sometimes gets corrected by other dogs because she is so friendly and can come in a little strong. She did live with a small dog briefly too. She has had mixed results with cats in her foster home. When they run she wants to join in the game and give chase, but doesn't bother the cats the rest of the time. Because she is so playful, she would probably do better in a home with no kitties. Although she is not registered, she does have tattoos. Her right tattoo is 59C but her left tattoo is hard to read 73658. The last 2 numbers are really faint. Her birthday is 5/27/19 and her sire is Superior Panama and her dam is AMF Slammed Shut. Jojo has not lived with kids, but she seemed to like them when introduced. Be sure to look at her other photos to see some cute ones of her as a puppy. Jojo was in another adoptive home for a little over a month, but they didn't have a fenced yard. She was resistant to going potty on leash, even after being walked outside for extended periods. Jojo seems to like to walk around and find the perfect place to go potty on her own. A fenced yard is required for Jojo.

Bones
Age:

Cat Tolerance:
Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Broquet
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Petak Family of Chapin SC, 6.19.24

Bones is arriving soon from Australia. He raced 13 races and was actually good, winning 4 races in a row and becoming a finalist in the 2023 National Derby! Bones raced at Nowra, Wentworth Park, and Bulli. He raced his last race April 10th, 2023. Bones raced at 77lbs and is a very tall guy for his weight. His DOB is 1/18/21. His sire is Barcia Bale and his dam is Rockstar Stratus. He was vetted in Australia before arrival and his tattoo is NKAMZ. Bones is a big sweetheart! He is gentle and affectionate and an all-round softy. He is a super easy-going, laid back dog with a big heart. He can be a little shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he’ll have endless love to give! Bones will always lean into any pat you give him. He’s used to having a bit of company (usually another greyhound), so he would need a bit more practice and training before he could be left alone for long periods of time. Bones is however, well on his way to becoming a wonderful pet! He walks well on the lead, comes when he is called and only really gets excited when it’s time for food or to be let outside! Bones is a curious guy; he likes to explore and sniff around to get comfortable in a new environment. Even better, if this new environment has some treats he can munch on too! Bones has been socialised mostly with other greyhounds, but has a bit of experience with a smaller dog too. He got on well with the small dog, after some initial interest. He disengaged quickly and was able to walk along parallel without any issues. He was fine with the small dog he met after he arrived too. He had some initial interest in the cat but was equally curious about everything else in the room and he would walk away. He seems like he could be trainable with cats with some supervision at first. Bones is a fantastic guy with a beautiful temperament and with a bit of love and patience, he’ll quickly become a wonderful life-long companion. If you’re looking for a gentle, sweet dog who is just gorgeous inside and out, look no further than Bones.

Annie just arrived from Australia. She raced 54 races mostly in 2020 and 2021. Her last race was Jan 22 of 2022. She has been living with her racing owner since then. She wasn't a great racer mainly placing and only actually won 4 races. She raced at quite a few tracks: Dubbo, Coonamble, Muswellbrook, Gunnedah, Bathurst, Maitland, Tamworth, and Moree. Annie is 66lbs and her DOB is October 1, 2018. Her sire is the famous Fernando Bale and her dam is Becky Keeping. This is Annie's description from her owner:

Annie is an out and out sweetheart, well on her way to becoming a perfect pet. Despite her lack of experience living the pet lifestyle, Annie is a confident, happy girl who would make a wonderful addition to almost any home.You’ll always spot Annie by her wagging tail, always moving side to side, whether she’s sniffing around a new environment or making a new human friend! Annie is very human social and loves to meet new people. She’ll confidently approach (tail wagging of course!) and look for a little TLC. She will choose to calmly stand next to you for as long as you will pet her. She goes outside just long enough to finish her business, and then wants to come straight back inside. Annie has mostly socialised with other Greyhounds, however she has also been introduced to some small dogs. She got along just fine with the smallies and disengaged easily, overall she didn’t have much interest in them- she prefers human friends who can give her all the love and affection! Annie seems like she may be trainable with cats. She was initially very interested in the first cat she met, but after it slapped her, she backed away and didn't want to engage again. Annie is travels very well, she is cool, very very calm, and collected at all times. She is great on the lead and doesn't pull! Annie crates very well and is quiet in her crate. She has liked the small kids she has met. She is a gorgeous dog inside and out. Annie is confident, friendly, and sweet- what more could you ask for! Don’t hesitate to welcome Annie into your heart and home today.

Serena just arrived from Australia. She raced 41 races there, won 8 of those and placed in the money often. Her last race was August 7, 2021 and she has been living with her owner since then. She raced at Moree, Coonamble, Tamworth, Bathurst, Gunnedah, Maitland, and Muswellbrook. We didn't get a weight for her but her DOB is May 28th 2018. Her sire is Brad Hill Billy and her dam is Karinya Connie. Her left ear is tattooed NHCTZ. Here is the description from her owner:

Serena is a gorgeous, happy girl who can’t wait to find her forever home. She is a dog who has not had a lot of opportunities to socialise, however you would never be able to tell by how friendly and confident she is! Whether Serena is exploring a new environment or meeting a stranger, she is incredibly, happy, and confident. She loves to have a sniff around, investigating and exploring her surroundings, getting a full picture of what’s going on. Equally, she loves to meet new people (all potential new friends). She’ll come bounding over, tail wagging and tongue lolling ready to be your new best friend for life! Serena has mostly interacted with other Greyhounds, however she has also met with a small dog. The pair got along extremely well and after a sniff and hello, she was happy to disengage and be on her way again- an absolute lady! Serena is a beautiful dog with a loving, friendly energy that is hard to match.  Serena is far too interested in cats to be able to live with them so needs to have a home with no kitties. She has been friendly with the children she has met too. Serena is such a happy, joyful sweet girl! She just can’t wait to find her forever home, so if you think Serena could be the love of your life, don’t hesitate to scoop her up!

Lenny just arrived from Australia. Lenny never raced there so never received a racing name. He is still young and won't turn 3 until July 13th. He is a medium sized male at 73lbs. His left ear is tattooed with NKEGJ. His sire is Ritza Lenny and his dam is Winlock Ramirez. This is the description from his owner:

Lenny is a happy, social dog and just the life and soul of the party! He is a very active guy who just lives to play, make friends, and just have fun! Lenny is a young guy and still a pup at heart really. He likes to bounce around, getting the lay of the land and making sure he didn’t miss anything that he could have played with! Lenny can be a little strong on the lead, but overall, very good. He is very confident and doesn’t shy away from new experiences; be it meeting new people or exploring new environments! He has no issues with strangers, just a potential new friend to him! He’ll confidently approach with a wagging tail to let you know that he’s looking for some TLC or some playtime! Lenny is equally as good in new environments. He’ll sniff around exploring, holding his own little investigations! Lenny is a wonderful dog and would be a great addition to a lot of homes, however his activity level means that he would be best suited in a home with an active person/people who can take him on adventures and help him get his steps in! Lenny did OK with a small dog he met but initially showed some interest so needs a careful introduction. He definitely needs a home with no kitties, he really is too interested in chasing them. Lenny is a smart guy and knows how to take off his muzzle. He also isn't quite out of the puppy chewing stage. If you’re looking for a happy, fun, dog who could be a lifelong adventure buddy, you’ve found the perfect match in Lenny!

Phil's Realm
Racing Name:
Phil's Realm
Pet/Kennel Name:
Phil
Age:
7
Color/Gender:
Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
No
Good w/ Children:
No
Fostered by (location):
Tampa Florida Area
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Mason Family 6/10/24

SPECIAL NEEDS Placement. Phil is located in a foster home with Adoptable Greythounds of Florida in the Tampa Florida area. Because of his special needs, he was returned by his previous owners and has been in foster care for a long time. We offered to try to get the word out to some of our adopters in hopes we can help him find a home that can work with him. This would be an adoption through the group in Florida and not Greyhound Crossroads. Phil needs a dog experienced home, that is willing to work with him. He has severe separation anxiety. Having other dogs around helps Phil some, but it is not 100 percent. He has too high of a prey drive to live with small dogs or cats. Phil would do best in a home with a calm, large, female dog and a family that is home a lot. He does not do well being crated. Phil has shown some resource guarding behavior, with his toys, so he can't be placed in a home with children. As you can see, Phil has a lot of limitations, but we are sure there is a perfect home for him out there. Phil has positives too. He absolutely loves people, leaning on you, going for walks. Dogs like Phil love too much, which cause their separation anxiety. He gets along well with other Greys in social situations.  

Phil raced in the US at the Sarasota Race Track and raced just 9 races. He didn't win any of them but managed to come in 3rd a couple of times. He raced his last race on April 30 2019 and was retired then and was in an adoptive home for years until he was returned. Phil is 7 years old, born 1/13/17. He raced at 73lbs. HIs sire is Swahili Eile and his dam is Kiowa Wildbraves.

Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Weisner, Moore SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the King Family of Greenville SC 6/9/24

Thunder came in from Australia. He raced 17 races at Potts Park, Bulli, Temora, Goulburn, Young, Nowra, Warrugul and Sale. He didn't win one of those races, but did come in 2nd a couple of times. In his last race December 2nd, he had some trouble and appears to have had an injury. He has a small spot on one shoulder that looks like an old shoulder muscle injury. It isn't an injury that will affect his life or ability to run. It is a common injury and dogs even race after that type of injury heals. But since he wasn't fast, they decided to just retire him. Thunder's sire is My Redeemer and his dam is Fabrigal. He is a 73lb glossy black guy whose DOB is 9/7/2020. He had his neuter, dental and all shots in Australia before being sent here. He has a tattoo in his left ear VJLPD and he is also microchipped. This is the description from his previous owner:

Thunder is a wonderful dog who was born to be the ultimate laid-back family pet! He is as cool as a cucumber, but super affectionate and social with people and animals alike. Thunder is great with kids and very gentle. He already has experience with children ages 4 and upwards. Thunder is friendly with other animals including small dogs and cats so would be great in a home with other pets. He loves to get his energy out in the morning with a bit of a run around the yard and then lays about for the rest of the day. He would definitely suit a home with workers/school goers who are out of the house for a lot of the day. Thunder would make for a fantastic family pet and would suit almost any home. He is loving and gentle and an all-round sweetheart. 

Thunder is everything they said he was, except he has not done well with the cats in his foster home. When they run he just can't resist chasing them so he needs a home with no cats. He absolutely adores the children in his foster home though and loves to lay on the couch and snuggle with them. If you want a snuggly, friendly dog, Thunder is it.

She can be a bit reserved on first meeting, but once she has you figured out, she’ll quickly blossom into the outgoing, fun sweetheart that she really is! Speckles is very dog social and loves to hang out with her other Greyhound friends. She may be retired, but Speckles still likes to keep active. She loves a run around the yard and to get a quick zoomie out of her system! Speckles is a fantastic dog with a wonderful personality. She is social, sweet and an all-round gorgeous dog! She would thrive in a home with lots of love and affection, but also one with enough space for her zoomies!

Trainable
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Brazelton family of Evans SC, 5.18.24

Andy just arrived from Australia where he raced 25 races. He only won one of those races and retired June 13th of 2023. He raced at Temora, Young, Warragul, Traralgonn, Warrnambool, Healesville, and Geelong. His sire is Peter Rocket and his dam is Destini Jaguar.  He will turn 4 on August 14th. Andy is a very tiny, male racing at just 64lbs. He is a handsome, beautiful, natured dog who is still a puppy at heart! Andy's racing owner says he can come across a bit shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he’ll be stuck by your side forever. So far he has been friendly with everyone he has met since he has arrived. He goes up to small kids and adults with his tail wagging. He’s a human-social dog who just loves comfort and someone to play with! Andy can get a little spooked by unexpected noises according to his racing owner, but once he settles in, he’s a big goofball who loves to be silly and show off! We had some thunderstorms while transporting him and he didn't seem to be worried by them and traveled really well. He’s still a young boy and so he can be playful, but only in short spurts. He would definitely suit a home with an active owner(s) and maybe teenagers/older children to play with. Don’t be worried if you’re someone who is away from home for a lot of the day, Andy is happy to have a bit of activity or playtime in the morning and then chill out for the rest of the day. Andy has lived with working sheep dogs and a Border Collie, but is happy in his own company. He has lived with older female greyhounds, but has been friendly with all the dogs he has met and traveled well with another male and 2 females. Andy is a lovely, loyal and sweet dog with the heart of a puppy. A house would quickly become a home with Andy in it. Andy was fully vetted in Australia and is microchipped. His ear tattoo is VJRNH. So far Andy has been calm and very well behaved since he has arrived, except for when he sees squirrels. Waggy, happy and friendly. He was great with the small, white Italian Greyhound he met. He was very curious about the cat he met and sniffed it and watched it for awhile, then would check out other things in the room. He returned and carefully sniffed the cat again. He didn't try to chase the cat and quickly backed away when the cat hissed or slapped him, then didn't want to get close to the cat again. He may be trainable with cats with some initial supervision. Andy does have one very odd quirk. Since Australia doesn't have squirrels, Andy had never seen one until he arrived. He is so excited to see them, he gets a little nuts. For such a small guy, he can pull very hard to get to a squirrel and it might be pretty hard to walk him through a neighborhood with squirrels. Other than that Andy seems like a sweet nearly perfect little guy.

He was neutered, had his dental and all his shots in Australia before being transported to the US. This is the description we received from his previous owner: This guy is the perfect example of the cruisy greyhound. He likes to play for a little while, but then it is nap time. His favorite pastime is food tasting. Gazer has a great attitude towards life and lives it to the fullest. He is a very happy boy and loves being with his people. He is good with the Italian Greyhound he met. Cats roam the property and although most of the dogs don't interact with them, they can observe them and don't get excited when they do see them. Children interact with regularily (8 and up). Children can lead him around and he will not pull on the lead. Gazer just wants to get in the car and settles quickly and travels well. He is crate trained and is happy to sit in his crate and watch his people while they work. 

Gazer has been a great boy since he arrived. He absolutely loves the kids he saw ages 4 to 9. He is so friendly and happy and great on leash. He has been quiet in his crate. Gazer has been living with small dogs in his foster home. He absolutely can not live with cats. He was very focused on the cat and didn't back away even when it slapped him. Gazer does travel very well. What a nice, friendly, happy guy!

Luke truly is a dog with a paw in each world; energetic and playful but at the same time, polite and laid back! Luke is a well-mannered boy, but he also loves to play and to get his steps in on his daily walks. He would ideally suit a home with a big back yard where he can run around and show off his zoomie skills! Don’t worry, when you’re ready to rest and put the feet up, he’ll be just as happy to lay around with you! Luke just loves the company of his human! Luke has met a variety of different dog breeds and gets on well with all of them including an Italian Greyhound he met after he arrived in the US. He has also met children of a range of ages and is the paw-fect gentleman as always with them! Luke is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, anyone would find something about him to fall in love with almost immediately! He’s a little gentleman who just wants to spend his days with you. Luke has been completely vetted in Australia and is microchipped. His ear tattoo is VKKRB. Luke needs a home with no cats, he failed his cat test and shows way too much interest in cats to be safe.

She just adores meeting people, and her tail wags regularly turn into full body wiggles! Snitzel is so full of energy and excitement for every day and every situation. She is a very confident girl and doesn’t let a new environment or a new person faze her (that’s just the potential for a new best friend!). Snitzel is also a big fan of her little-human friends! In her previous home, the neighbourhood children would regularly visit to help handle and socialise the dogs- and Snitzel would of course perform her full body wiggle for them! It's not just humans that Snitzel loves, she is also a big fan of her 4-legged friends! Snitzel likes to play with other medium to large size dogs but is also a big fan of the smaller breeds too. She did great with a tiny Italian greyhound she met when she arrived. She may come on a little strong at first, but Snitzel quickly settles and then has another new best friend under her belt! Snitzel is still quite young and very much still a puppy at heart- she just loves to have fun and fill her day with as much happiness and play as possible! Snitzel is a big fan of the water too and just loves to dip her toes and have a splash around whenever she gets the chance! Snitzel is such a beautiful dog inside and out. You won’t meet a friendlier, happier girl. Snitzel will fall in love with you just as quickly as you fall in love with her so don’t hesitate to take this fun-loving, joyful pup home with you! She was fully vetted in Australia and is microchipped. Her ear tattoo is NKHCR. Snitzel travels really well and just got in the van and laid down. She was great with the other dogs she traveled with an the dogs she met after she arrived. She really is a precious little girl. She was curious about the cat she met at first but just sniffed and lost interest. She checked out more of the house then went back and sniffed the cat again. She seemed happy to meet a new friend.

Joyous Dream
Racing Name:
Joyous Dream
Pet/Kennel Name:
RJ
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
White and Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Livingston Family of N. Augusta 4/27/24

RJ just arrived from Australia where she raced only 11 races. She raced at Dubbo, Wagga, Temora, Broken Hill, Young, and Coonamble. She showed a lot of promise and did win 4 of her early races. She took a break from racing from June 7th to August 15 of 2023. She does have an old toe injury to one of her toes on her back foot and one toe on the same foot had to be amputated so that may be why she took the break from her racing career. When she returned to racing she wasn't as fast and raced her last race September 29th of 2023. RJ is a tiny white girl with brindle spots who just turned 3 on April 1st. She only weighs 57lbs. Her sire is the famous Fernando Bale and her dam is Joyous. RJ was spayed, had a dental and all her shots before she arrived in the US. Her owner sent us this info:

RJ is a sweetheart who was born to be a family pet. She is a soft, quiet, gentle, girl who is an all round dream to handle. She is wonderful to walk on leash and very easy going. She has experience living in a domestic household and can't wait to be in one again. RJ would suit almost any family type; a person living on their own, a couple, family with kids - she is a crowd pleaser! RJ has experience with kids already ages 6 and up and is fantastic with them. RJ is also dog social, having spent extended time in a yard with a Jack Russell. While she gets on well with small dogs, RJ prefers larger breeds such as Labradors or other greyhounds. Unfortunately RJ is not cat social, however that is about her only flaw. She is an incredibly placid, friendly and easy going dog that would be difficult not to fall in love with instantly. She is sweet and gentle and would make a wonderful companion in just about any home. 

RJ's description is very accurate. She did not pass her cat test but was great with all the other dogs and kids she met. Very calm and doesn't pull on leash. She crates well and quietly. Really sweet and well mannered.

Fostered by (location):
Frymire, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kovaks Family of Greenville SC 4/25/24

Ace just arrived from Australia. He is a small brindle male that raced at just 66lbs. His DOB is Nov 3 2020. Ace raced 63 races and he won 11 of those and placed in many others. He raced at a lot of tracks: Wagga, Temora, Richmond, The Gardens, Taree, and Gunnedah. He retired Feb 16th. His sire is Orson Allen and his dam is Broken Talent. Ace was neutered, had a dental and all his shots before he arrived in the US. Here is the the bio his owner sent with him:

Ace is a wonder dog! A beautiful and affectionate boy who was born to be a family pet. Ace is extremely friendly and in particular loves kids ages 6 years and older. Ace just adores the hustle and bustle of a family environment. He will partake in whatever activity is happening and just loves to be involved. More than anything, Ace loves a spa day - getting pampered and having a bath are on top of his list! Ace is also dog social as he has spent some time with Blue Heeler dogs and got on well with them. Ace is a beautiful, funny and up-for-anything kind of dog who would make a wonderful addition to a family home.

We found Ace's description to be right on, except for one thing. He is a friendly, happy guy, who gives kisses and loves people. He definitely has lived in a home and has great house manners. He crated quietly and slept through the night the first night in his foster home. He loves to lay on the bed and loves to go for rides in the car. He is pretty strong and excitable wanting to check out everything and pulls on leash. So it is a good thing that he is a small guy. His description says he is dog social and gets along well with cattle dogs, but we found that he has way too high of a prey drive to live with any other smaller dogs. Medium size dogs were also out. A poodle mix that was nearly his size was also a no for him. He is very excitable around other breeds of dogs and barks and just doesn't seem to like them. He also has way too high of a prey drive to live with cats. He seems like he would do great as an only dog or in a home with another greyhound (or possibly the cattle dogs he is used to). He gets along very well with the two male greyhounds in his foster home. He loves toys, but likes to take the stuffing out. He is definitely a fun guy that seemed to really like the kids he met and everyone else... except dogs and cats.

Kylie just arrived from Alabama. She is a retired racer that raced at Southland until they closed at the end of 2022. She wasn't a great racer and only won one race in her career. She raced 58 races and did place quite a few times. She is a small girl that raced at just 58lbs. She is 4 years old and won't turn 5 until September 3rd. Kylie has been in a home in Alabama since she retired from racing but they asked us for help rehoming her. Her sire is Rico's Vintage and her dam is KL's Ruth. Kylie was vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital in Greenwood SC on 3/12/24. According to her previous owner, Kylie has a pretty high prey drive so would do best in a home with no cats or small dogs. She did not pay much attention to a small white Italian greyhound however but she may be different with small fluffy dogs that look more like bunnies or squirrels. She is a very friendly girl that wags like crazy, so hard she injured her tail the first day we had her. She loves to lay on couches and will sleep in bed with you. She bonds very fast to whoever she is with. Kylie travels well and will just get up on the seat and lay down for the trip. She is great girl!!

Blanton is a retired show greyhound that never raced. He has been in a home since birth. He is 6 years old and is a gorgeous white and brindle male that is extra large at around 100lbs. He is retired from show life and his owner asked for our help in finding him a home.  He has been fine with other large dogs that are close to his size, male and female. He plays rough though so his owner does not think he would be good with smaller dogs or cats. He is a very friendly happy guy and wouldn't mean any harm though. Just a very sweet boy.
