Upstate

Greyhounds available for adoption in the Upstate SC area around Greenville and Greenwood SC.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS!

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: Please fill out the form below if you are in our adoption areas and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home.

Latoya is a stunning black girl that was an amazing racer. She raced 166 races at Tri-State in WV. She raced much of her career at the top AA level and even competed in a Stakes race. Stakes races are for the very fastest dogs at that track. She retired in 2018 and was placed by another group. She has been in a home since then but we have been asked to help them re-home her. Latoya is 8 years old and will turn 9 on July 25th. She raced at 68lbs. Her sire is the famous Djays Octane and her dam is Craigie Ripit. Because she is 8 years old, Latoya qualifies for our senior discounted adoption donation of $250. More as we get to know her.

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.
