Available Hounds

Retired racing greyhounds available for adoption through Greyhound Crossroads in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.


The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020. Even before the tracks closed there weren't enough greyhounds for adopters and adoption groups. Many adoption groups were already closed. Now greyhounds have become a rare breed. Moving forward, we know that IF we have greyhounds it will be a very limited number. That has given us no other choice but to CLOSE APPLICATIONS to new adopters.  At the time that decision was made, we had almost 200 families already on the waiting list- an impossible number for us to fill with the dogs no longer available.  We are truly sorry it won't be possible to help you adopt.

If you HAVE ALREADY ADOPTED from us before:  and wish to be considered for a rare returned greyhound, please fill out the form below.

Clyde retired from the Daytona Race Track with his sister Bonnie in 2015. He only raced 6 races and didn't do well in any of them, so was retired young. Bonnie and Clyde were from a litter of only two pups and were placed in an adoptive home together. Clyde is available again because his family came home to find out that the two littermates had gotten into a fight. No one knows what happened, but they decided to re-home Clyde. They say it was very out of character for him. The two dogs had always gotten along and Clyde is normally a very gentle, happy go lucky, easy going guy according to his previous family. They said he never lifted a lip or growled over anything. Clyde is calm and well behaved and just will lean into you for love. He is a very loving guy. He passed his cat and small dog tests initially and wanted nothing to do with the cat after it hissed and swatted at him. He was introduced to another cat after he was returned and he happily sniffed the cat, then wanted to get love from the people in the room. In foster care he did growl over space when laying down, when other dogs approached occasionally, but that is the only thing we have seen. He has been completely checked over by our vet and got a clean bill of health along with a fresh dental and all shots he needed. He really bonds closely with people and wants to be in the room with you. He has not shown any sign of separation anxiety when his foster mom was at work and just lays on her couch and relaxes. He just gets anxious when someone is home and he can't get to them. He was fostered with an 8 year old child. His sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is Riverview Sookie. He raced at 76lbs so is a mid sized guy. He just turned 9 on January 17th so qualifies for our senior discount adoption donation of $250.   UPDATE!  Sweet Kamino is still looking for the perfect family to settle into.  He's demonstrated in the last two homes that he sometimes gets overly intense and excited when playing outside or left unsupervised with females in the home.  His perfect family would be one willing to muzzle and/or separate him from other dogs when left completely alone or running, much as many of us do with our own packs to keep everyone safe.  Kamino is a wonderful and loving dog but cares so much about his humans that he really wants to be a part of everything exciting with you.  He's big, lovable, and looking for his final family to live out his happy senior years of retirement.
