Piper Belle is a 62lb, brindle, female that originally retired from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL in 2017. At that time she was known as Home Girl but her previous family called her Piper Belle. She raced 78 races there and got up to the B level. Her sire is Makeshift and her dam is Nightingale. Piper Belle turned 8 on July 30th and has been in an adoptive home since November of 2017. Her adopter has asked for help re-homing her and her housemate Liam because she is having to move in with an older relative to provide care and can't take the dogs. Piper Belle is a beautiful brindle female with a deep mahogany coat with black striping. She is a sweetheart and loves people and kids. Piper Belle adores attention from everyone. She loves being close and snoozing near you. Piper Belle will come and lean against you quietly. She is intelligent and gentle with occasional bursts of silliness. She loves walks and laying outside on the patio. She gets excited on car rides and loves outings to the park or pet store. Piper Belle has perfect house manners. She will often put herself to bed at night and just disappears to the bedroom when it is her bed time.  Piper Belle was too interested in chasing kitties to be able to live with them, but she did great with small dogs. She has a bright happy personality. Because she is a senior, she qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $250. We would love to find a home for her and Liam together because they have lived together and are very close.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Lee family of Longs, SC 9/15/22

Liam is one of the tiniest males we have ever seen, smaller than many females at only 60lbs. He is very short and stocky for his weight, so is as short as females in the lower 50lb range. Liam raced 47 races at Palm Beach and Mardi Gras Race Tracks. He won 5 of those races and mainly just placed at the the lower levels so was retired in April of 2017. Liam initially went back to his farm until they found a group that could take him. We got him in November of 2017 and he has been in an adoptive home since December of 2017. Liam will turn 8 on September 29th, so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Liam's owner has asked us for help re-homing Liam and his housemate Piper Belle because she is having to move in with an older relative to provide care for them and cannot take the dogs. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is Atascocita Sofia.  Liam is good with other dogs large and small, but barks at cats he sees outside, so probably needs a home with no kitties. He was a little overwhelmed and shy when he first arrived and but has a fun, loving personality once he warms up. He loves to be outside as much as possible. He loves racing around the yard and chasing squirrels. He is playful and funny and enjoys emptying his toy box one toy at a time. He enjoys tossing a ball outside. Liam is a snuggler who will curl himself up inside your arms for hugs. He loves car rides, and will curl up and sleep. He enjoys outings, but mainly he loves being in his own yard. He has perfect house manners. Liam is not comfortable around little kids - he tends to go to his crate or quiet place if kids come to visit. He is very quiet indoors and laid back. He responds to "Wait" and a whistle to come inside. We would love to place Liam and Piper Belle together since they are bonded and haven't really been separated since 2017.

Fostered by (location):
Bowden, Greenville SC
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Crouch family of Greenville SC 8/26/22

Zorro is a dog that one of our volunteers was waiting on to retire. He was a good racer that was racing at Southland, which is the top track in the country. He got up to the top AA level and ran in a Stakes race there, so he was truly one of the fastest greyhounds in the US. He broke his hock in his last race on November 18th of 2020. He was taken to an orthopedic specialist by his owner and it was determined that the break would heal best with splinting and didn't require surgery. He was sent to one of our foster homes that specializes in rehabbing injuries. He was there until his leg completely healed and our vets released him in March of 2021 for adoption. The Pruitt family that had been waiting on him to retire was able to adopt him at that time. Zorro is described by his trainer as a gentle giant. He raced at a whopping 88lbs so is an extra large tall guy. He is good on leash and very gentle and calm in spite of his size. His sire is the famous Bella Infrared and his dam is Fly Miley Cyrus. Zorro turned 4 on October 7th. He passed his small dog tests easily and liked the children he met. His foster dad said he would fall asleep during his splint changes and was a super easy guy to work with. Zorro lived in his first home from March of 2021 until mid 2022. He lived with two small Yorkies and loved them. Unfortunately Zorro's mom was ill and passed away in mid 2022. Her family reached out to us to re-home Zorro. One of our other volunteers and foster homes had recently lost two dogs to cancer and ask to adopt him. Zorro has settled in well. He seems like he misses his mom and his Yorkie buddies because he has show some signs of having separation anxiety when his new dad leaves him alone.

Piper is a brindle boy that never raced and is coming to us straight from a farm in Florida. He will turn 3 on August 19th. He never raced because he has dry eyes that are constantly irritated. He doesn't produce tears for some reason, so will have to have drops to lubricate his eyes for the rest of his life - usually 2-3 times per day. His potential adopter has experience with eye issues with his current greyhound and already has a greyhound opthomologist. Piper's sire is Nashapelli and his dam is Sidlinger. He was exceptionally good at our vet when he got his eyes examined. He is very friendly and sweet.

SENIOR! Lori just came to us from the Roban Farm, in Florida, where she has been living since she retired from racing in Feb of 2014. She was an amazing racer and raced 133 races at the top levels at Ebro and Sarasota tracks in Florida. She is the 2011 Ebro Mega Morris Juvenile Stake winner and was the 2013 Ebro Inaugural Champion. She is famous! She was retired to the farm to become a mom and had a total of 22 pups in 4 litters. Her last litter was in 2018 and she has been living on the farm as a pet since then. Because of the end of racing in Florida her owners have been forced to cut back on the number of dogs on the farm. They made the tough decision to let us place Lori. They only have 7 dogs left on the farm as pets now. Lori is an incredibly energetic busy girl. She is curious about everything and acts more like a 2 year old than a dog that turned 11 on February 22nd. You would never guess she is a senior. She is incredibly strong and gets excited to sniff everything at first when on leash. She does calm down and walks better after a few minutes. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Good Charlotte. Lori raced at 65lbs. Lori passed her small dog test and cat test. She was very curious at first like she is with everything else but calmed down quickly and went on to sniffing everything else. She seemed to like the small kids she met. She is a very friendly sweet girl that is going to make a great pet. Because she is a senior she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. Lori was vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital

Sip initially came in from the Birmingham Race Track and was placed in 2017 and was called Zeke. He raced 39 races there but only actually won one of those. He fell in a couple of races and quit one race so just wasn't cut out for it. Zeke is a small, 66lb, black, shiny boy that has a crooked tail from an old break. He is friendly and waggy. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no interest in chasing either. He loves other dogs and wants to snuggle up to them, no space issues here! Very sweet boy! He also liked the children he met. He travels well and just jumped in a van and laid down for the trip. He is a happy boy and seemed pretty calm even when younger. Sip will turn 7 September 17th. He has been in a home since December of 2017 but is being returned to us due to a divorce. He limps when he is on hard surfaces due to corns on his feet. His sire is Pat C Clement and his dam is WW Consumes.  He was vetted with Dr Ng in Columbia SC.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Sennema Family of Myrtle Beach 6/25/22

Finlay originally raced at Derby Lane in Florida. He was not a good racer and only won one race in his career of 34 races. He usually finished toward the back of the pack. He retired in February of 2013. He was placed by another adoption group, For The Hounds. He has been in that home until now. Finlay has been returned to us due to a financial situation and his owners will miss him. He was very loved. He lived with children in his previous home and was good with them. He also lived with a medium sized dog. There was some confusion about Finlay's identity. His owners thought his racing name was Foolish Times, but when we contacted the National Greyhound Association that registers all greyhounds, they told us that Foolish Times is a female, and that the dog we had was most likely a male littermate named Time To Deal. His tattoos are pretty faded and difficult to read. His sire is Dustin the Way and his dam is SE's Revenge. Finlay is a sweet older guy that turned 11 on January 19th. He has corns on his feet and limps because of them. Especially on hard surfaces. He has done better since we hulled his corns and trimmed his nails. He would do best in a home with lots of carpet due to his corns. Other than the corns, the vet that examined him felt he was healthy. Because he is a senior, Finlay qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250.

Moore, Athens GA
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Moore family of Athens, GA, 4.11.2022

Aria was initially placed by the Birmingham Track Adoption Group in early 2016 as a young puppy, just after she was tattooed at 3 months old. Her ear tattoos are 115B and 67724. Although she was tattooed she was never completed the registration process and didn't receive a registered racing name. Her littermates were racers and we ended up placing two of them: NPZ Imperial Lee and KMZ Banshee. Her sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dancin Inmiami. She was born on November 2nd of 2015. She was the runt of the litter and only weighed 49lbs at her last vet checkup. Her first owners renamed her Karma. That adoptive family decided to return her to the Birmingham Track Adoption Group when she was 10 months old. Her first family thought she would do better with someone with more greyhound experience and they wanted to get a boxer puppy instead. Karma was transported to our group from Birmingham and was adopted 8/28/16 when she was 10 months old by a dog trainer that had had other greyhounds. She was renamed Saber. Unfortunately Saber's owner died in 2020. Right after her owner passed away, Saber got out and got hit by a car. She suffered a broken leg. Her previous owner's family had it fixed and kept her until now. The break is long healed, but still causes her some pain and probably always will. She does limp and is on a low dose of inexpensive doggy pain meds, that she will need to continue to take. Her previous owner taught her a range of obedience commands. She was a Therapy Dog that went on regular visits to hospitals and nursing homes, so is an exceptionally very friendly, well trained and well behaved dog. She has been fine with the small Italian greyhound she met and she was required to be good with other dogs on her Therapy Dog visits. She does want to chase cats so needs a home without them. Saber has developed a corn on her back right foot that will require regular maintenance down the road. It also contributes to her limping. She got a dental and updated vetting at Emerald City Animal Hospital and saw an orthopedic specialist to be sure that there was nothing more that could be done for her previous broken leg when we got her. She is up to date on everything and ready to go home.

Paisley just arrived from the Running to Stand Still farm in Florida with her sister Faith. She raced a total of 24 races at Derby Lane in Florida before all the Florida Tracks were voted out of business at the end of 2020. Paisley raced her entire career in maiden - the lowest level of racing for dogs that have never won a race. They must win one maiden race to start climbing the different levels of racing and Paisley just couldn't do it before racing ended. Paisley raced at 58lbs and just turned 2 on January 16th. Her sire is Quick Reply and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Paisley passed her cat test easily with no interest at all. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Her foster home got her hoping that she would do good with their other pets and planned to keep her if all went well so she will be staying. Be sure to check out Paisley's other photos. Lots of cute puppy pictures of her at the farm.

Jessie James came to us as a return. He was initially adopted through Greyhounds As Pets Of North East Florida. They were the track adoption group for the Orange Park Race Track that has closed and the adoption group has also closed. We were asked to re-home him because he attacked another greyhound in his home when it fell and screamed. He is a higher prey drive greyhound and a screaming, thrashing dog can sometimes set that prey drive off. Before that happened Jessie James had lived with other large dogs in his home and had never shown any aggression towards any dog or human. He was just the opposite - sweet and snuggly. Very friendly and silly. While we don't feel this was true aggression, we think he would do best to be placed as an only dog just to err on the side of caution. Although he likes children, because of the incident with the other dog, we would prefer to place him in a home with no kids. He also needs a home with no kitties. Jessie James was born 12/18/16 so he is five and a half years old. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is BM Murphy. He is a cute brindle male. More as we get to know him.

Special Senior! Greta initially came in from an Oklahoma farm where she had been since she has retired from racing. She raced at Derby Lane, Naples Ft Myers and Flagler Race Tracks. She did get up to the top A level so was good. She race 121 races and retired in September of 2013, and went back to the farm to be a mom. She never ended up actually having pups though and was sent to us in January of 2016 to be a pet. Her sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is PR's Maddy Rae. Greta is a tiny girl that raced at just 54lbs. She will celebrate her 12th birthday on November 16th so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Greta was adopted by one of our volunteers after her arrival back in January of 2016. Unfortunately they have been forced to give up their beloved dogs. Her owners are experiencing severe health issues that keep them from being able to care for pets anymore. Greta is a real lover that seeks out attention and follows her family around when she is not dozing on a dog bed. She loves the kids she has met. She is very friendly and happy. Greta came into her home like she had always been there. She was a little interested in cats at first but became very good with cats and chose to avoid them. She was too interested in small dogs that were bouncing or running around, so her initial foster home thought she would do better in a home without small dogs but she has been around small dogs successfully over the years since. Greta is gentle, loving and loves to snuggle. She has no trouble with stairs and easily navigates all types of flooring. She crates well and loves to go for rides in the car.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kornmeyer Family of Ft Bragg NC 2/11/22

Some Special Needs Please Read Description! Sammy is a red, male, greyhound that initially came in from a greyhound farm in Abilene Kansas. He just wasn't interested in racing or chasing a lure, so he stayed on the farm until he had an adoption group to take him. He never went to the race track. He was not even 2 years old when we first placed him in 2016. He turned 7 on May 15th. He is a small to mid sized boy that is around 68lbs, but does not have an official racing weight since he never raced. His sire is Last Outlaw and his dam is WW Fast Star. He is a pretty red male that is very friendly and loves everyone he meets.  Sammy passed his cat and small dog tests easily when he arrived. Although he hasn't really been around cats since, he is very good with other dogs of all sizes and breeds. He loves to play and run with any dog that will play with him. He even lives with Parrots! Although he has not lived with kids, his current owner feels like he would probably be good with them, because he is so easy going and loves everyone so much. Sammy is being returned to us because of some health issues his owner is having, she is just not able to care for him at this time. She says he is a great dog. He never has accidents in the house and never has been one to get into anything. He doesn't need a crate because he is completely trustworthy, even unsupervised, and always has been. He has been living as an only dog in his home, so would be fine in that situation. Sammy does have some quirks. He has never learned to be comfortable on slippery floors in his home, even after 5 years.He has just alerted his owner when he needs to go somewhere and she has pulled him on a dog bed to where he wants to go. He needs a home that is mostly carpeted. He also needs a one story home because he is very uncomfortable on stairs. He just had 5 stairs to go outside to go potty at his former home. He would go down them, but then would dance around and was too scared to come back up them without help. He never got over that living in the same home for 5 years. Sammy is mostly a homebody and on walks he will sometimes just stop and turn into a statue, not wanting to walk any farther. He won't jump into a car and needs to be helped in. Many, if not most greyhounds come to us with similar quirks and usually quickly get over their fears with some encouragement and training. Sammy lived with a dog trainer and she wasn't able to get him past his fears, so we just want to find a home that he can be comfortable in from the start. If you have a mostly carpeted, one story home, without too many stairs to access your yard, you could be the family for Sammy. He also needs a family that is OK with a dog that is a homebody and doesn't like to go for long walks. Although Sammy is fearful of a few odd things, he is not fearful with people and is a very happy, loving, boy that is very very good and never gets into any trouble. Sammy is doing well in his foster home so far. He will be checked over by our vet in Columbia and get his vaccinations, heartworm test, fecal and a fresh dental and be ready to go home on February 2nd.

Road Runner initially came in from the Sanford Orlando Race track in Summer of 2017. He is an XL red male that never actually had an official race. He just didn't do well enough in race schooling. He weighs 88lbs and is a big, happy, bouncy guy that has a wonderful, outgoing personality. Road Runner turned 6 on October 1st. He has been in an adoptive home since October of 2017, but they have one toddler and another baby on the way and just don't have time to spend with him. Road Runner's sire is Dyna Nalin and his dam is Time Release and yes he does have a brother named Wile E Coyote. This cute guy passed his cat and small dog test easily. When the cat ran, he did show some interest, but wouldn't actually get near the cat even then. He appeared to already understand that cats have claws. He lived with small Italian Greyhounds in his foster home and loves them. He tries to get them to play with him. He likes toddlers and babies and everyone he has met. He is a very joyful guy and everything makes him happy. He would be an excellent dog for someone that wants a very social dog they can take anywhere. He loves other dogs and tries to get everyone he meets to play with him by offering a play bow. Road Runner is definitely going to be a fun guy for a lucky family. He travels very well. Even as a young dog he was pretty calm and well behaved. His foster home loves having him as a guest because of his happy, silly personality. Road Runner was returned to us earlier, after being in an adoptive home for just over a month, again a return that was not due to anything he did.

Dutch had a few schooling races at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville. He was so far behind the other dogs that he wasn't even in the video at the finish of his first 3 schooling races. He had 3 more schooling races and wasn't able to win one, so was retired in April of 2019. He was placed in an adoptive home by the track adoption group there with a female greyhound named Zoe. Now that family has grown and they are having a difficult time keeping up with 2 large dogs in addition to small kids. The adoption group at the Orange Park track disbanded after the track there closed in 2020. They gave us permission to help the owners re-home Dutch and his housemate, Zoe.  Dutch is a brindle male, DOB:  04-06-2017 that is 4.5 years old. His previous owner describes him as an “Old Soul,” very gentle, affectionate, a true couch potato. Dutch is pretty sensitive to his environment and loves routine.  He dislikes being crated, having his nails clipped and does not handle non-carpeted floors well - and may freeze on slippery floors. The noise of the outside street sweeper scares him too. Dutch rides well in the car, but takes longer to lay down than Zoe. He is excellent on leash and does not pull. He does well with children and does well with other dogs at the dog park. He still needs to be tested with cats because he hasn't been around them in his adoptive home. He is described as “super-sweet,” but isn't the most confident guy. He does love his toys though.

Dutch has been adopted and is now being called Moose.

Broquet (Woodruff, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Kozlowski Family of Anderson SC 12/17/21

Squirt just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He was born there and has lived there all his life. He had a nerve injury to his front leg when he was a pup that prevented him from racing. He was tattooed at 3 months with the rest of his litter, but never completed the registration process normally done after a year old. So he never got an official racing name. He has been called Squirt his entire life. He has been kept as a pet on the farm, but they have stopped raising dogs there due to the end of racing in Florida. They were unable to keep all their pets when they lost their income. His former owner had a hard time parting with Squirt and he had a hard time parting with her. He is a happy guy that loves to play ball and loves to play in the hose. He has a significant permanent limp on his front leg that has been examined by our vet. It is nerve damage and lack of feeling in the leg that causes it and she doesn't believe he is in any pain. He can still run very fast, mainly on 3 legs, and it doesn't stop him from chasing a ball. He does need a little help getting in and out of a vehicle because of that foot not having much feeling. He doesn't seem to be able to tell when it is on the ground or if it is right side up or knuckled under. He does use the front leg for balance when standing and walking slowly. It has been part of his life since he was a puppy, he has no idea there is any problem and rarely lets it slow him down. In his photos, Squirt has a little bit of redness from where his muzzle rubbed his nose on the trip up from the farm. That is completely gone now and the hair has grown back. Squirt is very loving and gives kisses and follows his people around. A very good boy that seems like he will be a pretty low key, easy guy. He can be a little sensitive and nervous just at first, since he has limited experience with life off the farm. He does travel well and just lays down. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is Taylor May Duffy. He was born on August 2, 2016 so just turned 5. Squirt is a small male that weighed just 62lbs at his vet appointment but could stand to gain a few pounds. He was vetted at Emerald City Vet hospital. Squirt has lived with cats and is very good with other dogs of all sizes. He is food motivated and eats very well. Although he initially will stop at at the entrance to a new crate, once he is in the crate, he settles and lays down and crates well. Squirt was in an adoptive home for a month and was having potty training issues there. He was fine before and once back in foster care and so far has had no accidents in his foster's home. He may just need some supervision and some guidance as all dogs do when moved to a new space until he learns where to go.

 Zoe initially raced 49 races at the Orange Park Race Track in Florida and her call name there was Arizona. She is a tiny red female that raced at 57lbs. She wasn't a great racer competing mainly at the lowest D level. She raced her last race in December of 2019 and had a career ending injury that required surgery on her back leg at that time. She is long healed from that surgery and made a good recovery. Arizona was placed in a home with a male greyhound named Dutch after she recovered. Now their owners asked for help re-homing their two dogs because they have an expanding family, and cannot give the dogs the time and attention they need. Her adoptive family renamed her Zoe and her DOB is 09-26-2017 so she is 4 years old.  Zoe is super-affectionate, very confident, and likes to play and be the center of attention. She walks beautifully on-leash and doesn’t pull. Zoe gets along with other dogs at the dog park. She needs testing with cats because she has never been around them. Zoe as been around children and loves them, she also rides in car well. She can be a bit of a marker so will need supervision at first in a new home until she learns where to go. Zoe and her housemate Dutch don't seem to be very bonded or dependent on each other so we think they will be fine to place separately.

Special Needs - Seizures! Frank raced 9 races at the Sarasota Race Track in Florida. He wasn't able to win any of those races, so was retired young. His last race was in February of 2017 and he was placed by a local adoption group in Florida, that has since gone out of business. Frank has been living with a family since 2017 that has relocated from Florida to Mooresville NC. They have reached out to us for help in rehoming him. Recently he has developed seizures, that have decreased somewhat with meds, but haven't completely resolved. His family has a baby and Frank can not be around the baby or the rest of the family because of the danger to the baby if he hits him or kicks him when he is having a seizure. They don't feel like this is a good life for Frank and are hoping to find him another family without babies or small children. Hi likes kids and would never intentionally hurt one though. Frank likes everyone and everything, he lives peacefully with a cat in his current home and has been sweet and gentle with every human and dog he has met. He is a very sweet guy.Frank has been seen by their vet and is currently on two medications Levetiracetam and Zonisamide but that hasn't resolved his seizures. If you are interested in adopting or fostering Frank, please contact us. We can discuss the cost of the medications he is on and give you more information. Frank was born on May 25th of 2014 so he is 7 years old. He is a handsome black male. His sire is Yahoo Omar and his dam is BWG Lanai.

Nicky just arrived from the Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel at the Wheeling WV Race Track. He arrived with his sister Kayjay Hailee. He only raced at total of 5 races and finished toward the back of the pack in all of them. He was retired young and won't turn 2 until Dec 27th. He is a pretty tall for a dog that raced at only 74lbs. He has more of a narrow build then some. His sire is Superior Panama and his dam is Flying Supervolt. Nicky seems a little overwhelmed with everything new in his life so far and is pretty timid, very much like his sister. Nicky seems like a pretty calm boy for as young as he is. He traveled well and was completely quiet in his crate on the dog haul. Since, he has made some noise in his kennel at his foster home, so may not be the best choice for apartment living. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily and really didn't want to get close to the cat. He has been living in a foster home with cats. Nicky was vetted at Emerald City Vet Clinic on November 4th. More as we get to know him.

Klieman just arrived from the Code Red Racing Kennel at the Wheeling WV Race Track. He also raced at Palm Beach in Florida until all the tracks there closed. Klieman raced 72 races and was a grade A racer at Palm Beach. After moving to Wheeling he quickly dropped down to the lowest D level and was retired. Klieman is a handsome, dark mahogany, red brindle boy. His pictures don't capture how dark and pretty his color is. He raced at 82lbs so is an extra large guy. He is a very tall thin guy with extra long legs. Klieman seemed a little overwhelmed at first. He is a little reserved with people he doesn't know but just at first. Once he gets to know you he will talk to you and give you kisses. He doesn't pull when walking on leash. He seems pretty humble and unsure of himself, not a confident, pushy guy at all. Klieman was afraid of the cat when he met it and didn't want to go anywhere near it. After he got more comfortable in his foster home, he started chasing cats, so needs a home with no kitties now. Klieman passed his small dog tests. He seems like a gentle giant of guy. Klieman turned 3 on May 26th. His sire is Super C Riddick and his dam is BS Pengo. He was vetted at Emerald City Vet Clinic on Oct 29th. Klieman picked up steps right away and is not worried about slick wood floors even if he slips. He is still very submissive and sweet. He is food motivated and if you have food he will quickly be your best friend. He is the rare greyhound that might bark at intruders. He saw a couple of donkeys in the field near his foster home and barked a warning about the strange looking critters. Klieman's foster mom says he visibly relaxes when other dogs are around so may do best in a home with at least one other dog.

Rosa came in initially from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She wasn't even two yet when she first arrived. She just wasn't very interested in racing so never actually had an official race. Her sire is the famous DJays Octane and her dam is Alissa's Posa. Rosa was was quickly adopted by her foster family and was with them for a year and a half. She was returned because her first home had some serious health issues that made it impossible for them to care for a dog. Rosa was quickly adopted by another family and has been with them since but a deployment and family illness has forced them to re-home her again. Rosa turned 6 on January 26th. She is good with kids and small dogs. She passed her initial cat test with us with only a little interest, but showed more interest in cats after she got more comfortable in her home. She has been living in a home with a bunny but still is way too interested in chasing cats so we think she should be placed in a home with no kitties.  Rosa is doing well in foster care since she arrived. She has been vetted at Emerald City Animal Hospital and is healthy and ready to go home. Rosa is adorable, playful and affectionate, ready to make some new friends! She will bounce happily when you come home and greets everyone with the same happy bounce. No one is a stranger to this sweet girl.

He loves people and his foster mom had a hard time getting photos because she couldn't get more than a step away from him without her following him. He passed his cat and small dog test so should be OK to live with both. Joey will be vetted at Evans Animal Hospital on Nov 10th. More as we get to know him.

Kaage in Augusta GA
Adoption Status: In Process to the Kondek Family of FL 11/13/21

Special Senior! Trey originally came in from the Goodman Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track back in 2016. He is a small 68lb brindle male that turned 9 on August 26th so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. He also raced briefly at Derby Lane early in his career. He was a top level racer in Orlando competing and winning at the top A level against the best dogs at that track. Trey's trainers were very attached to him and planned to keep him as a personal pet after he retired. They rescued a small dog from a bad situation, so weren't able to keep another dog when Trey finally retired though.  When he first arrived at their race track kennel he was very shy and overwhelmed. They worked him through that and helped him build his confidence in the year and a half he raced with them. His trainers said he was the absolute sweetest boy once he warmed up. He was really upset when the hauler came to take him out of the kennel to bring him to us and he had a moment of panic. He was better by the time he reached us and didn't tuck his tail or really seem shy at all. He seemed to be adjusting to home life remarkably well in foster care and didn't seem like a really shy dog at all. He was adopted in November of 2016, but progressively got more and more fearful with the family and even developed a fear of the yard. Trey spent a lot of his time in the bedroom away from everyone so eventually they decided that he would do better with another family. Trey is not shy with other dogs large and small and has lived with both. We would prefer not to put him in a home with children since they can be loud and scary. We think he probably needs a quiet home that will let him initiate contact when he is ready. Trey's sire is Odd Ulysses and his dam is Topaz Sallyhally. Trey was adopted by his foster home in September of 2017 and has had a great life with them. Unfortunately his adopters have had severe health issues that prevent them from being able to take care of their beloved dogs so they have asked us to re-home them. This is a photo of Trey when he first arrived from the track.

Hailee just arrived from the Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel at the Wheeling WV race track with her brother Kayjay Nicky P. She only raced 5 races there and came in toward the back of the pack in every one of them. She was retired young and won't even turn 2 until December 27th. Her sire is Superior Panama and her dam is Flying Supervolt. Hailee raced at 62lbs and is a natural sitter. A sit isn't that comfortable for most greyhounds because of the way they are built, but she will sit in her crate frequently. Hailee was pretty shy and overwhelmed with all the changes in her life at first. Her brother is also pretty shy so it seems to be genetic shyness that runs in some families of greyhounds. She seems like she wants to interact with people, wagging and dancing around you getting her courage up to approach. She definitely prefers women over men and is more timid and likely to bolt away if approached by a man. Her foster family has been leash walking her to potty in their fenced yard and she does potty on leash nicely. She has been doing some whining in her kennel so probably wouldn't be a good choice for apartment living. Hailee will need a little time to warm up to her new family. She was initially very curious about small dogs she met, but after prolonged sniffing and figuring out what they were, she seems like she may be fine to live with them. She will just need a careful introduction with small dogs that look like squirrels or bunnies. She has not been cat tested yet. She as vetted at Emerald City Vet Clinic on November 4th. While she was at the vet they said she was leaping up in the dog runs nearly to the top so she will need to have a yard with a 5 foot fence or a family without a fenced yard that will leash walk her to potty. This is a sweet cute little girl with a lot of personality waiting to blossom for the right family.

Special Placement Needed! Tenor just arrived from the Wheeling WV Race Track. He also raced at Palm Beach and Gulf Tracks before they closed. He was a good racer getting up to the top AA Level at Wheeling which is one of the most competitive tracks. This guy has talent and is fast! His last race was in May. Tenor turned 4 on August 17th. He is a handsome red male that raced at 71lbs. We do have some photos from his race days. His sire is Atascocita Gray and his dam is Atascocita Dory. We placed a half brother of his, same mom, named Atascocita Lip. Tenor passed his cat and small dog tests without much interest other than sniffing. His trainer says he is a great guy that is very friendly and loving with people. He told us Tenor could be bossy and snappy with the other males at turn out though. We did see that behavior after just one day in his first foster home, so we think that he would do best in a home as an only dog or at least as an only male dog. Tenor is doing great with the older dogs in his second foster home so may prefer the company of calmer dogs. He seems to have made himself comfortable right away and has been sleeping on his back with his legs in the air in the famous greyhound 'roach' position. That usually means that a dog is very relaxed and comfortable. This guy seems to know he is a star. Tenor will be vetted at Emerald City Vet Clinic on November 10th.

Logan just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He was born and raised on the Gurley farm in Florida though. He raced 35 races starting out at Orange Park in Florida before it closed and racing the rest of his career at Wheeling in WV.  He was a very good racer getting up to the top AA level in Wheeling which is one of the most competitive tracks in the country. He was retired on January 16th of 2021 and sent back to the farm to be a dad. With the end of racing in Florida they decided not to breed more racers ands he was sent to the Roban farm to be a potential stud dog to produce pets for people that wanted to buy greyhound puppies. His personality is absolutely the best and he would have had the best pups. The Robans ended up having to cut back on dogs at their farm so decided not to breed him and sent him to us to be a pet. He is one of the sweetest, friendliest greyhounds we have ever met. He stares lovingly up into your eyes and chooses to stay with people over playing with other dogs. He just wants love and will wrap himself around you. He didn't seem too stressed by the new surroundings and goes up to complete strangers for petting. He doesn't like to jump up into a vehicle yet but once in he lays down and travels really well. He has a pretty big overbite which makes his long nose eve longer. He will grin at you if you pet his face beside his mouth. Be sure to look at all his photos to see his different grins. Logan is a beautiful rich dark red with a white blaze and feet. Very flashy. He is a very tall, narrow guy with very long legs that raced at 77lbs. He is as tall as a 90lb stockier greyhound he was fostered with because of his lanky delicate build. He was born on October 17th 2017 so celebrated his 4th birthday while a foster with us. Logan will make some very lucky family the best pet. He can be a little loud in his crate at first but that is the only negative we could come up with. He was great with a puppy and a small dog he met too. He might be trainable with cats because he did correct but returned to excitedly checking out the cat quickly so we think he would do best in a home without cats. Logan was vetted at Emerald City Vet Hospital

Special Senior! Rayne is a small brindle female that raced at 57lbs. She initially came to us from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel after she retired in 2017. She was a good racer, consistently competitive at the top A level. She raced 135 races and also raced for a short time at Wheeling and Southland tracks. Rayne's sire is CTW Silverstreak and her dam is CTW Unreal. She just turned 8 on May 18th so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Rayne was born and raised at Clear The Way Farm in Texas. She is a happy girl that has a great personality. She is very curious about everything, but quiet. Rayne loves cuddles, naps, walks, squeaker toys and she is a great hugger. She likes her kennel but is well behaved when out. She isn't destructive. Rayne is wonderful, lovely and silly according to her foster home. Rayne loves to go for rides and has been living in a motorhome. She is very outgoing and is great at meet and greets and out in public. She does like to get up on beds and couches.

Rayne was adopted by a family on 8/13/17 but is being returned to us due to a divorce and schedule change that leaves her alone for long periods. Although we initially had her listed as no cats her former owner says that she is fine with cats now and even chickens. Rayne has been living as an only dog but she does have some anxiety when she is left alone for long periods so she may enjoy living in a home with other dogs. Her previous owner says she is a wonderful girl that has been a loving companion. She is great with other dogs and kids. Rayne does have a condition that is mostly seen just in greyhounds. She has painful corns on the pads of her feet which prevent her from walking comfortably on hard surfaces for long distances. In most cases the corns can not be cured but we can give her adoptive family more information on treatments that may help. Each dog is different and they don't all respond to treatment. Surgical removal of the corns should NEVER be done! It is extremely painful for the dog and they always come back.

 Hi my name is Ozaki and I am special because I have 3 legs! Ozaki came in to us initially from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. He was a good racer and also raced at Dubuque and was a finalist in the 2016 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Race. He only raced 36 races though. He broke his leg at the end of December 2016. His racing owner had an expensive surgery done to fix the leg before we got him. He was rehabbed at the track in the kennel there for months. When he was sent to us, he still had swelling and infection in the leg and was not healing up well. Our vet did a biopsy on his leg to find out what was going on. It turns out he had an infection that was resistant to common antibiotics, and we had to change his treatment to daily antibiotic injections.  After 2 weeks of daily injections the leg continued to get worse and the daily antibiotic injections caused a huge open spot between his shoulders and a lot of pain. Our vet felt the infected leg was beginning to poison his body and needed to be removed. Ozaki came through the amputation great and did fantastic on 3 legs. His trainer had told us about his great friendly, goofy personality and said he was one of his favorites in the kennel. The staff that worked with him at our vet clinic agreed. One of them fell in love with him and adopted him once he was released by the vet. Ozaki raced at 79lbs. His sire is the very famous SH Avatar and his dam is Money Maid. Ozaki turned 7 on June 11th. When Ozaki first arrived he seemed like a sensitive guy that was a little stressed about the haul and everything new. When we were loading him in the van he had to be lifted in, then wouldn't put his legs down. We had to slide him in on his side on the dog beds. That one step up just made him literally freeze. He was OK a second later, up on his feet sniffing around. Sweet, goofy, guy! He is very friendly guy but may have just a bit of a dramatic side.

Ozaki was adopted in June of 2017 and was happily living on a farm with cats, other dogs and farm animals. He never has had any trouble getting around on 3 legs and runs nearly as fast as a 4 legged greyhound. Recently his family reported that he was being destructive and chewing things and returned him to us to be re-homed. So far he has not had any bad behaviors in foster care and has settled right in without any trouble. He seems like he is a very well behaved guy with great house manners. He could resort to chewing again if he gets bored, but just using a crate or a kennel muzzle when he isn't supervised would easily prevent any damage. He gets along well with his foster mom's other dogs, small and large. He and one of his foster mom's other males sleep cuddled up together on a dog bed. Although he loves kids when he meets them, we don't think he should live in a home with small children. His former family reported that he could be protective with his space when he was laying down on a couch or bed - they didn't allow him on furniture for that reason.

Kap came to us from the Daytona Race track because her kennel closed. She wasn't there long and never had a single official race. She was only a year and a half old when she retired in 2015. She was adopted 7/31/2015 and her name was changed to Rosie. She has been in an adoptive home since then. Rosie will turn 8 on December 11th. She is being returned to us with her housemate Bryant due to a divorce. They are very bonded and we are looking for an adoptive home where they can stay together. Rosie is a smaller girl that is just 58lbs. Her sire is Gable Sour Cream and her dam is WW Key Kap Rosy. She is very friendly and waggy with a tail that curls up over her back more like a husky than a greyhound. It is very very cute and makes her a one of a kind. She did complain some at first in her foster home so may be too loud to be an apartment dog. Rosey passed her cat and small dog tests with flying colors and has lived with cats in her previous home. Her trainer brought her 3 boys to work in the kennel with her so she is used to being around kids. Her adoptive home had 2 special needs kids that she did well with too so she has always been around children. 

Rosie was adopted with her housemate Bryant by one of her foster homes. Unfortunately she started limping only weeks after her adoption and was diagnosed with bone cancer. Her pain progressed quickly and she crossed the rainbow bridge

Bryant came to us at the end of 2016 from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He came in with his brothers Stihl and Benton. He is the only one of the brothers to ever have an official race. He only had 3 races though, and finished at the back of the pack each time, so was retired young. Bryant was adopted January 1st of 2017 and has been in an adoptive home since then. He turned 6 on April 9th. He is one of the tinier boys we have seen, racing at only 63lbs.  Bryant passed his cat and small dog tests easily. He is very used to being around kids, his trainer had her kids work with her in the kennel and he lived with 2 special needs children in his previous home. He was returned to us with his housemate Rosie due to a separation. He and Rosie are very bonded and we would like to place them in a home where they can stay together. His sire is Abita Simon and his dam is Magic Patti. Bryant is a sweet friendly boy! His trainer said that she put the brothers all out together because they were too whimpy to be put out with the other boys. The other boys would pick on them. Bryant hasn't read the book that claim greyhounds are quiet and he does bark sometimes, mainly when the ice maker makes ice. He likes to ride curled up in the front seat of the car, but if he slides off he is perfectly happy to ride with his hind end on the floor and his chest and head on the seat or the reverse of that. He makes himself comfortable wherever he is and is usually upside down with his legs in the air sleeping in the "roach" position. 

Bryant was adopted with his housemate Rosie by one of his foster homes. Rosie was diagnosed with bone cancer and passed away shortly after adoption but Bryant is doing fine by himself.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Scully family of Greenville SC 5/21/21

Lily came in from the Running to Stand Still farm in Florida. She was tattooed but never completed the registration process to get a racing name. She has been known as Lily her whole life. She is not going to race due to the closure of all the tracks in Florida. Lily is young and turned 1 on August 3rd. Her sire is Makeshift and her dam is Lilly Langtry. Since she never raced we don't have a racing weight for her. She arrived with her littermate Aspen.  Lily's owner says she can be a bit shy at times, but she has handled the move to us very well and has been very friendly and happy so far. Lily has never had the training that most greyhounds get at the track so still needs leash and manners training. She passed her cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either. She has been in a foster home with cats. She is good with them most of the time, but sometimes still is interested in chasing when they run and play so she would need more training and close supervision in a home with cats. Lily was vetted at Oasis Animal Hospital in Mauldin. Be sure to look at her other photos to see pictures of her at 3 months old on the farm.

Thor initially came in from the Orange Park Race Course in Jacksonville FL last year, at that time he was called Sharky but his first owners renamed him. He also raced at Gulf, Dubuque and Southland tracks so is quite the traveler. Although he raced 55 races, he was never very good, and only won 3 races. Thor mainly raced at the lowest D level. He is the most laid back, relaxed dog ever according to his foster dad. Nothing phases him and he just goes with the flow. Very sweet guy! Thor turned 3 on June 12th and is a big guy racing at 80lbs. His sire is Gigawatt and his dam is TB's Flo Rita. Thor was adopted in September of 2020 but his family has asked us for help re-homing him and his housemate Valkyrie due to a divorce. His former family did not have a fenced yard, so he should be fine going potty on leash in another home. He is already home acclimated and should be an easy addition. His family did not have any kids but says he likes kids and was great with the small children he was around when with them. His former family did not own small dogs or cats so he hasn't lived with either but he passed his test with both at the track before he arrived. His current foster family is planning to adopt him but has reported a lot of interest in their cats. They are hoping with some training and time he will get better.

Jean initially came in from the Orange Park Race Track where she raced all 68 of her races. She raced mainly at the lower C and D levels and only managed to win 6 of her races. She did place a lot though. Jean raced at 60lbs and turns 4 on July 6th. Her sire is the famous Seldom Told and her dam is WP Black Velvet. Her last race was Feb 24th of 2020 and she was with the track adoption group at the track and was vetted there on 5/6/20. Jean passed her cat test there and ignored the cat at first. Once she got used to the cat, she wanted to play, but she backs right off when the cat slaps her. She has done well with the small dog in her foster home. Jean was adopted to a family and has been with them for about a year. They are having a baby and don't have time for her anymore so would like us to find her another home. She is a good girl according to her family and is great with their cat. She isn't being returned due to anything she did. Her family says she is a bouncy, happy, girl that has a fun level of energy.

Faith came in initially with her sister Paisley from the Running to Stand Still Farm in Florida. She raced just 4 races at Palm Beach in Florida before all the tracks in Florida closed for good at the end of 2020. She was just getting her career started but finished toward the back of the pack in the few races she did have so probably would not have had a long career anyway. Faith raced at 61lbs and just turned 2 on January 16th. Some of our volunteers visited the farm she was raised on so have photos of her taken throughout her life. Be sure to click on her other photos to see them. Her sire is Quick Reply and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Faith was placed in a home but they reported that she was never happy there. She was there for a month, but they said she didn't want to interact with their dogs at all and was protective of her food. When we got her back she was underweight and very hungry, which could have caused her odd behavior. She had shown no sign of any food issues in her foster home or with any other dogs previously and was a happy go lucky girl. She was happy and wagging her tail as soon as she saw her foster family again. She has had no issues with any of the other greyhounds in her foster home and interacts with them normally since she has been back. Even though she has never shown any sign of aggression to people we would prefer to not place her with small children that might grab a bone or mess with her food just to be on the safe side. Faith does have a high prey drive and did not pass her cat test. She hasn't lived with tiny dogs, and can mistake them for squirrels, so needs a home without kitties or small dogs. Faith has been back in her foster home for some time now and has been a wonderful happy girl since she walked through the door. We put Faith on vet hold due to her weight loss to be sure she was healthy but she is gaining weight back and is fine.

Crago (Greenville, SC)
Adoption Status: Adopted by the Crago family, 4/19/21

Denton just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He never raced. His tattoos are 74185 - 109H and he was born on October 29th of 2019 so is very young and just turned 1 in October. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Biodiesel. Denton had runny eyes and skin allergies off and on, then had a bad reaction to a wormer (Moxidectin) he was given. His adoptive owner should not use Moxidectin or Heartworm preventatives containing Ivermectin on him. Denton recovered completely and seems fine now. His racing owner decided not race him because of his sensitivities, so Denton is looking for a pet home. He was curious and did a lot of sniffing when he met a cat, but passed his initial cat test. He was more excitable around the small, fast moving dog, but it seemed to be more puppy play drive than prey drive. His foster home has small dogs and will see how trainable he is with her dogs. Our vet has checked him and he does have thin hair but no sign of skin irritation. His eyes do get a little discharge from time to time and the results of a tear test came back slightly dry which can be caused by allergies. Our vet gave him some eye drops to try and we are waiting on the results of some other tests. She felt that his allergies were minor and shouldn't prevent him from being adopted. Denton seems sweet and pretty calm for his age. He is still in the puppy chewing stage and needs strong fleece bedding to prevent shredding. Because of his chewing he needs to be supervised in the house until he learns what is OK to chew on and what is not. He seems to prefer wood and fabric items. Denton wants to please and has been responding quickly to training in his foster home. He has done some crying and howling in his kennel, so may not be able to live in an apartment or townhouse. He quickly figured out to go to the door and bark when he needed to go outside to potty. Denton is very sweet and affectionate. His head will be in your lap anytime you sit down. He loves to play fetch and loves playing with other dogs. Denton is young and still has a playful puppy side.

She also raced some of her 30 races at Sanford Orlando race track and Palm Beach.  got up to the top A level in Orlando but dropped down fast in her last few races. Mina is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. Her sire is Turbo Penske and her dam is Flying Snowstorm. She turned 3 on November 12th. She still needs to be tested with cats and small dogs. She was placed in a home with two older gentlemen in August of last year, but mostly avoids them and has growled and snapped at one of them. Mina usually chose to stay at the other end of the house when they were home, but loves it when strangers come over and will run right up to anyone new for attention. She was very loving with her foster family, so we think she was just in the wrong home. Mina loves to be around other greyhounds, she has no accidents in the house and is very well mannered in the house. She also walks beautifully on leash. Since she was grumpy towards one of her previous owners we would prefer to place her in a home with no kids. Mina is doing great in her foster home since we got her back. So well that they have decided to keep her permanently.

Jelly raced 50 races and ended his career at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville. He also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV and at Southland in Arkansas. He wasn't able to win at Southland or Wheeling so was moved down to a lower level track in hopes he would be able to compete. He finally was able to win a few races in Jacksonville but only managed to get up to B level. Jelly raced his last race on Dec 5th of 2020 before that track closed permanently. He was vetted in Jacksonville and placed by the track adoption center in a home. He was placed in a home with small children and he gradually got very stressed and anxious due their noise and activity. He was returned to the track adoption group for rehoming recently and they sent him to us. He lived with kittens while he was in the home and mostly avoided them. He loves stuffed animals and toys that squeak and loves it if you throw toys for him in the backyard so he can zoom after them. He also loves to chew on a Nylabone. He is a digger that would love to have a designated spot to to dig. He loves other dogs too. Jelly can be a little nervous in crowds and seems to be more comfortable with women than men.  He can be vocal so wouldn't be a good apartment dog. He will make noise at breakfast time and when the doorbell rings or on trash day when they 'steal' his trash. He loves short walks in areas he knows - just 20 - 30 minutes and then he is tired and ready for a nap. His former family reports that he is a great snuggler and wants to be a lap dog. He does have some sleep startle and doesn't like to be bothered when he is sleeping. Jelly snores, barks and even sings in his sleep. Jelly raced at 80lbs and has gotten up close to 90lbs so needs to take off some weight. His sire is TMC's Remedy and his dam is CTW Quintessence. He turned 3 on December 30th.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Boylan Family of Greenville SC 3/19/21

Special Adoption! Bonded Pair! Rebel isn't really very much of a rebel. She is actually just a bit timid at first and not a real confident girl. Rebel is tiny, racing at just 57lbs. She turned 7 on September 4th. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is Brett Lee Queen. She only raced 26 races, all of them in Wheeling WV. She was a very good racer there getting up to the top AA level quickly. After winning and doing well, she suddenly started coming in at the back of the pack. When she stopped doing well at that track, she was moved to Sanford Orlando to race. They decided that she wasn't going to race well anymore after a few schooling races there and retired her. She ran her last official race June 11th of 2016, so has been retired for years. Rebel was adopted in August of 2016 and lived with a wonderful adoptive family until now. They made the difficult decision to re-home her because they foster special needs kids. Recently they added several children to their family for a total of 5 under the age of 8. Although Rebel was OK with kids at first, she has gotten very uncomfortable with the number of kids in the family now. She would prefer a quiet home with no small kids. Rebel has lived with cats and small dogs and is fine with them. She was returned with her housemate Delilah who is also available for adoption. The two girls are very bonded and constantly lean on each other and lay together, so we would love it if we could find a special home that wants two girls. Rebel crates very quietly. Her foster home describes her as a true couch potato. She even lays down when she eats. She was pretty timid and overwhelmed when she got to her new foster home but has gotten very comfortable there in a short time. The girls are both really sweet and already well behaved so should make easy additions to a home. Because she is the more shy of the two girls, Rebel relies on Delilah. The pictures when she first arrived show the dark muzzle she used to have. The lighter muzzle photos are her new pictures.

She was adopted in October of 2016 and lived with a wonderful family until now. She is looking for a new home because her family fosters special needs children and were asked to take in some more kids. Although she was fine with a couple of kids, the 5 small kids in the home now made Delilah very uncomfortable. Her family made the difficult decision to let her go to a home where she would be more comfortable. She is a tiny 52lbs light fawn female that turned 7 on June 14th. She has the tiniest face and nose and is so cute. Her sire is WW's Dog Gone and her dam is WW's Hey Darla. Delilah passed her cat test easily so should be fine to live in a home with cats or small dogs. She was great with the cats in a foster home and stayed a distance from them and wouldn't even get close. She was around her trainers kids and around the kids in her adoptive home but does get stressed by a large number of kids around her. Delilah would prefer a home with just one or two quiet kids or no kids. Delilah is a curious, friendly girl. She didn't seem stressed at all by the earlier move from the track, but she was pretty stressed and upset, missing her family when she arrived back in foster care for the second time. She acted timid and overwhelmed in her foster home at first, but has completely relaxed now and is very comfortable now. Delilah was returned with her housemate Rebel and they are very bonded, leaning on each other and laying together. We would love to find them a special home where they can stay together. Both girls are loving and sweet and will come right up for love. They are well behaved and should make an easy addition to your home. Delilah is the more confident of the two and Rebel seems to rely on her but Delilah constantly checks in on Rebel and seems just as attached to her.

Kansas is a young greyhound puppy that just arrived from a greyhound farm. He broke his leg while playing with siblings on the farm. His owner had the leg surgically repaired with a plate. Even with the best medical repair, Kansas isn't going to be fast enough to make it at the track as a racer, so he was sent to us to place as a pet. Kansas has been X-rayed and examined by our vets and his leg is long healed. He has been released for adoption. Kansas turned one year old in August so is still pretty young and puppyish. He was tattooed at 3 months old and his tattoos are 73997 in left ear and 89A in right ear. He never completed the registration process and never actually raced. He was born on August 29th of 2019 and his sire is the famous Kelso's Fusileer. His dam is SH Norio. He has two littermates that were registered and may go on to have race careers SH minamoto and SH Yukimura.

Valkyrie initially came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2020 and was called Spitfire then. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas, Orange Park in Florida and Tri-State in WV. She raced 77 races, mainly at the lower levels. She kept moving to different tracks, in hopes that they could find somewhere that she would be competitive. When she stayed at the lowest level after the last three moves, she was retired. Valkyrie is really sweet and friendly and just stares up into your eyes. She is pretty energetic and bouncy. According to her track trainer, she really loved treats and would do anything to get one. Her adoptive family says she can be a picky eater though, and only wants to eat Proplan Shredded Chicken. Valkyrie is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. She has cute ears that go straight up when she is curious about something and a cute curly tail. She turned 4 on November 24th. Her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is Asteria Drive. Spitfire seems like a very sweet girl and didn't seem to be terribly stressed by her initial move from the track or when she came back from her first adopters. Her family described her as being a more high strung girl that can stress, pant and pace in new situations. One quirky thing we have notices is that she doesn't want to go into a new crate. She sets her feet and raises her head as high as possible so she won't fit through the doorway. Once in the crate, she lays down and goes to sleep pretty fast. When she was at the vet's office she was very interested in the cats she saw, so they didn't think she would be OK with cats. After she actually sniffed our cat and it slapped her, she completely changed her mind and wouldn't go anywhere near our cats again. She seemed pretty traumatized by the one light slap the cat gave her. Spitfire has been in an adoptive home for about a year but is being re-homed with her housemate Thor because of a divorce. She is already home acclimated so should be an easy addition. Although her adoptive family didn't have small kids they said she has always been great with the kids she has been around. She was retested with cats and small dogs when we got her back and she was good with both.

Irvin is one of the very last retired racers we will be getting from Florida. The majority of the racetracks in the country were in Florida and have been gradually closing down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end Greyhound Racing in the state. Derby Lane was where Irvin raced and was one of the last two tracks to remain open, closing on December 27th. The other track closed down on December 31st.  Irvin only raced 8 races for D'Arcy Kennels, and didn't win any of them. He raced at 71lbs so is a smaller guy. He won't turn 2 until March 13th. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He is arriving with 2 of his littermates Harry Bosch and Reggie Woo. Irvin was way too interested in the cat to pass his cat test. He was so interested in chasing the cat, that he wouldn't back off and didn't even seem to notice when the cat slapped him for getting too close. He definitely needs a home with no kitties. He did great when meeting a small dog after a bit of sniffing to figure out what it was. He is a friendly and happy little guy that seems to love people. He also like the kids that he met. A friend was photographing races and managed to catch Irvin in one of his last races. Be sure to check out his other pictures to see them.

Fly came to us originally from the Daytona Beach Race Track in FL in 2016 as a 2 year old. She also raced 4 of her 21 races at Wheeling Downs in WV. She never was really fast, so she was retired young. Fly is now a 6 year old 61lb fawn female. Her sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen and her dam is Kiowa WW Kitty. She is a calm girl that is good on leash. She can be just a little timid in new situations. She passed her cat test easily because she was afraid of the cat. So she should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. She did get excited and try to chase an outside neighborhood cat, but we tell all adopters that no greyhound should be outside with ANY cat no matter how safe they are indoors. Inside and outside prey drive is very different especially with an unknown cat. Fly was adopted 10/29/16 and renamed Luca. Although she was used to being around and being handled by the older kids of her trainer at the track, she hasn't been comfortable since a new baby hit toddler stage and started falling on her and crawling up to her. Her owners asked us to help them re-home her in a home without small children. They said she is the sweetest most loving dog ever and it is really hard for them to let her go.

Eraser just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Fl. She only raced 22 races there. She got up to the top A level fast but then lost interest in racing and came in last in her last 6 races. So she was retired young. Eraser just turned 2 on August 8th and raced at 60lbs. She has been in a home with a small white Italian Greyhound and showed no interest in chasing him. She does mistake some tiny furry dogs for bunnies at a distance, so needs a careful intro. Once she is able to sniff and realizes they are actually dogs she seems to be OK. Eraser is a very happy, friendly girl. She is very sure of herself and un-phased by all the recent changes in her life. She crates calmly and quietly and is playful and fun in short spurts. A really nice personality. Eraser's foster family picked her out at the track and was hoping to keep her if she did well in their home. Eraser is a pretty confident girl and they already have a confident female that doesn't really like her, so they have decided to let her go to another adoptive home after having her a few weeks. Since Eraser is confident she may do best in a home with other male dogs or a more submissive female that is OK with someone else being in charge. Eraser has shown signs of having some separation anxiety, so probably does need a home with other dogs, so she isn't completely alone. Eraser has had mixed results with cats wanting to chase some of them but being Ok at other times, so we have concluded that she really needs a home without kitties.

Show Time just arrived as a result of all the tracks closing in Florida. She raced a few races at Southland in Arkansas but moved to Derby Lane in Florida and raced most of her 55 races there. She got up to the top A level briefly and had dropped down to C level by the time she was forced to retire. Her last race was December 26th. Show Time raced at 61lbs and is a gorgeous red brindle female. She will turn 3 on March 29th. Her sire is Show On The Road and her dam is PJ Nuke Em. She has been described as the 'perfect greyhound' by her foster family. She is affectionate, intelligent, comes to you when she needs to go outside to potty and has had no accidents in the house at all. She gets along well with the other greyhound in the house and likes to play with toys. Show Time walks beautifully on leash and the only time she pulls is when she sees another dog. She loves other dogs and gets very excited wanting to meet them. She has not been tested with cats or small dogs yet. She is working on mastering the steps in her foster home. More as we get to know her.

Szpanka-Alden, Bluffton SC

Peony is coming to us from the Orange Park adoption group. Her litter were all named for flowers. She only raced 8 races at Orange Park and only won one of those. She mainly finished at the back of the pack. Her last race was December 5th. She was vetted by the adoption group at the track and was initially placed by them. Although she passed her cat test at the track, she did not do as well with the cat in her adoptive home and was returned to the adoption group there. So she is being sent to us and is looking for a home with no kitties. Peony raced at 60lbs. She is a very young girl that won't turn 2 until May 6th. Her sire is Seldom Told and her dam is JW Snoopy. She is a little timid and needs to gain some confidence. A friend was photographing some of the last races in Florida and captured one of Peony's last races. Her lucky family will have some very cool pictures of her during her career.
