EugeneEugene -- Adoption pending
Racing Name: Mega Eustaquio
Age: 2 3/4 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Eugene is a friendly and fun-loving happy boy who loves hanging out with his foster parents. He likes to collect things and relocate them to a new spot. Maybe he likes to watch his foster parents search the house for the missing objects! Eugene is starting to discover squeaky toys and he is bonding with another big foster boy who shares his exuberant energy. He uses the doggie door and has never tried to raise his leg inside the house. He is doing OK on the leash but he still needs some work to control his excitement and zig zag movements. He loves to eat and has no problem being messed with while he is eating or sleeping. Eugene would love a playmate who is both young enough to enjoy excited playful energy and friendly enough to allow for snuggles and the sharing of doggie beds. Eugene gets nervous when left alone for long periods of time. Eugene travels well and he enjoys going shopping at the pet store and the hardware store. His friendly and gentle nature attracts lots of attention! Eugene probably should not be trusted around cats. He should not live in a household with cats or other small fluffy pets. Eugene greets everyone as his new best friend.

 

UllaUlla
Racing Name: PJ Ula
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Friendly, energetic, fun loving, 2 year old Ula loves to be busy. She adjusted quickly to life in her foster home which she shares with a mellow greyhound, a bossy shepherd, 3 bunnies and a geriatric cat. Ula is perfectly house trained,walks well on the leash, loves toys and is learning to play fetch. She attends Camp Run A Mutt while her foster Mom works and she enjoys playing with the other canine breeds. The camp staff adore her and describe her as really well adjusted. Ula's need to be busy must be considered by any future adopters. To keep busy, Ula will happily shred the mail, prune the house plants, and unplug electrical appliances. Her future family would be well advised to child/puppy proof their home and remove toxic plants. This is a 2 year old who likes to chew. Although there are no children in her foster home, Ula loves to meet the neighborhood children when she is out for a walk. Ula enthusiastically greets each new day at the first sign of dawn and is ready for action. She learns the routine quickly and tends to become quite vocal if dinner or walks are running more than 10 mins late. Ula will function best in a well organized household with lots of activity to keep her entertained. Foster mom Katherine

 

AlinaAlina
Racing Name: Atascocita Alina
Age: 7 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Alina's first career was as a stellar racer which propelled her into her next career as a "broodie" where she once again shined giving birth to 3 litters of puppies, the final one being in July of this year. Now at the age of 7 she is learning the fine art of retirement and once again is a fast study. Dog door - no problem. Soft beds and blankets - perfect for napping. Squeaky toys - the better to toss and play with. Eager to meet and greet every everyone and seems to take little interest in the small yappy things encountered on her daily walks as she prefers to spend most of her time sniffing all the new smells life has to offer. Alina isn't a counter surfer even though she does love her food. She is easily corrected but will give you her "sad eyes expression" in hopes you will feel bad for scolding her. Alina is a bit rambunctious when her leash is first put on and the door opens but by the time she gets to the side walk she is content to quietly join her foster sisters and walk like a proper greyhound. She loves to be petted and have her ears scratched and will keep her head in your lap for as long as you can last. Her holiday wish is for a loving, quiet home. A four legged companion to play with would be wonderful but a two legged companion who is home a lot would be OK also. She will give more love than you can ever give her. Oh yes, she is black, stealth-like in her movements, no third brake light visible when she suddenly stops in front of you and the coldest nose (that she use for her satisfaction) that I have ever experienced. Foster Mom, Stephanie

 

HunterHunter
Racing Name: Hunter
Age: 2.6 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Hunter is a calm, easy-going boy with a “go with the flow” attitude. He quickly settled into our home following the lead his foster siblings. Our dogs showed him the doggie door and the location of the toys and food bowl, making our job as foster parents a breeze. He is not food or toy possessive. I have stepped over him to open the shutters or windows without any incident. He has had no issues with a large crowd or children. Hunter settles quickly when in a car, usually curling up for a short nap. In addition to the elongated white triangle on his snout, Hunter has white-tipped toes and tail, plus his tail has a slight curl at the end! If you are looking for a great addition to your family during this holiday season, I recommend you take a look at Hunter. Foster parents Chick & Carolyn

 

FiestaFiesta
Racing Name: Fiesta First Law
Age: 1.5 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Fiesta is a very personable small greyhound boy. He is also young and had only 4 races before retiring to California. Fiesta is playful and loves toys, tossing them in the air and racing around in the yard with them. He tends to be quite timid of things he can't figure out. Though he likes his toys his foster mom's Halloween toy cat that screeched was way to much for him. No screeching cats or any toys that chase him please. He lives with 2 other greyhounds and a 7 pound chihuahua mix named Tinkerbell. He thinks Tinkerbell is just fine but the other young greyhounds play a bit too rough for him. He seems to be afraid of getting hurt by the big boys. When he gets scared he screams so probably he is not a guard dog in the making. He likes his crate and will willingly settle down in it for a nap. He is extremely well potty trained though he does not even have access to a dog door he will notify his parents when he needs the outside facilities. He loves to ride in the car and jumps right in which is not all that common of the male greyhounds. Fiesta foster mom has a 4 year old grandson that comes visit quite a bit and Fiesta is just fine with little boy games and noises. We think the best home for Fiesta would be one where his parent was around a lot to keep him company and there were not any mean or scary critters or toys. Smaller human that are nice to him would be quite fine. Ideally, Fiesta needs a loving forever home where they will encourage his sweet and loving nature and let him grow up into a secure adult. He may be OK as an only dog if his people are around quite bit. Foster mom Joyce.

 

ValdezValdez
Racing Name: JMB's Valdez
Age: 2.3 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: N/N

Valdez is a handsome and gentle boy. He had a career of 96 races in the last year and is figuring out his new retirement. He uses the dog door, rides nicely in the car, and is learning to get in and out of a SUV. He needs close supervision with opening doors. Tending to be timid, daily routine and Greyhound housemates are helping him gain more confidence. He enjoys ear, neck, and tummy rubs. He likes walks and occasionally pulls on the leash to investigate something that captures his interest. We are working on this. One of his favorite places is the front porch to view his new world and sleep in the sun. He delights in tossing, chasing, and squeaking the toys. He has discovered he can move a dog bed, blanket, and pillow to a more preferred spot. Valdez is becoming a fun and affectionate companion. Foster mom Susan

 

EchoEcho
Racing Name: SE's Echo
Age: 2.3 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Echo is a sweet and lively girl. She loves everyone she meets and greets them with enthusiasm looking for a pet from most everyone she sees. The highlight of her day is her morning walk. She is very good on the leash, but still likes to smell curious spots on the sidewalk. She usually has a little energy to burn when we return from the walks, but nothing a few zooms around the backyard doesn't cure. She is very good in the house and especially loves to help her foster mom with household chores, like making the bed, folding laundry, and sweeping. She and the resident beagle love to chase each other and play catch with the squeaky toys. During the work week, she spends the work day alone with the beagle with no issues at all. Echo is also quite the foodie, and is very curious about what everyone around her is eating, but she is working on her manners. She is not at all food or toy possessive. She has adopted a 'time-share' policy with the beds and toys alternating with the beagle with no issue. She tends to shy away from dogs she meets on her walks, but will warm up to them given the opportunity for a few good whiffs. She is a little too eager and will even lunge at the cats we encounter, so it is probably better that she goes to a home without. Echo loves living with another dog, but could probably be an only as long as her humans spent a lot of time at home. Foster mom Melanie

 

ChaseChase
Racing Name: Chase Jack
Age: 7.5 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Chase is a beautiful brindle male who is very happy, playful and extremely affectionally. He figured out what to do with toys from day one and he loves ti take them out of the toy box one by one, throw them in the air, run around with them in his mouth, then collect them all and take them to his bed. He is also very enthusiastic about food and treats, going for walks, and just about any interactive activities. So far his very favorite thing is to cuddle and play with people; he will stand or lie still forever if you keep petting him. He is fine staying home alone with the other greyhounds. He gets along well with our greys and other large dogs that we have met on our walks. He likes to play with others but also respects their space. He is however, a bit too interested in small dogs and cats, and probably should not go to a home with small pets. Because he loves to be with humans, he could probably be an only dog but has up till now always been with other hounds. Chase’s enthusiasm for life and his loving nature make him a wonderful companion. Foster dad Scott

 

LukeLuke
Racing Name: Mega Saluki
Age: 3.0 Sex: M Color: White and fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Luke looked like a pretty pitiful case the day I picked him up at the vet where he had had his broken leg pinned and been neutered, but he has turned into a gorgeous dog with an engaging face that reminds me of an Arabian horse (dish nose with big expressive eyes). He is quite shy, but is improving every day, though new things and people can still spook him. He is a voracious eater;, and is still learning that his people eating is not a sign that he needs to eat again, though he now confines his begging to laying nearby with a pitiful look on his face. He rides well in the car, but is not terribly relaxed and tends to stay on his feet looking out the window. Luke is anxious to make friends, but is still a little afraid of strangers, particularly children, and prefers that they ignore him so that he can make the first move. Because of his insecurities, Luke could not be an only dog. He is very anxious even going out to get in the car for a trip to the vet, without his foster brothers. That being said, he also looooves his foster mom and dad, and will follow them around endlessly, nudging them for endless petting and talking. When he is not doing that, he grabs a squeaky toy for an energetic play session. He's so fun to watch, as he actually pretends they're alive, acting startled when he sees them, then pouncing and throwing, then looking shocked to see them and barking! Though he loves these sessions, he seems to be fine around the smaller dogs he has met at Meet and Greets. Luke is super affectionate, and will make a great addition to a home with maybe another grey or two, who is looking for a comical snuggle bug. Foster mom Judy

 

AndyAndy
Racing Name: Volando Adonis
Age: 2.5 Sex: M Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Andy is a fascinating guy! Completely unflappable—nothing flusters him—not loud noises, large objects, or new people, he is a very steady, intense kind of boy. He is always happy to see his foster family, greets visitors with a whirly tail, and enjoys his stuffies. He is still learning “pillow” when the people are eating yet never steals food from the counters. He is affectionate without being demanding and will stay next to you as long as you give him some attention. He is good in the car and fairly good on leash (and improving). While he gets along well with the rest of the pack of 5 others, he does not seem to need them around. He is much more connected to his people than the pack so would probably be okay as an only, especially if his people are around or he can go to work with them.

 

JulieJulie
Racing Name: JWs Chanel
Age: 1.5 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Julie came to us as a very shy little girl who had to be carried to the car because she froze and didn't want to walk on the leash. She has been progressing nicely but will still need an adopter who is very sensitive to her needs, and will need to be in a home with another dog who is confident. Her puppy age is coming out and she is very entertaining as she pounces on and tosses toys for herself. She loves to run laps around the yard with the other hounds. When we go for walks, she will pounce on a piece of trash as if it were the best toy ever, then drops it a few steps later. She is still learning how to walk calmly on a leash, she bounces around and faces every direction at times, but she is so tiny, she is easy to control. She loves to play with the miniature pinscher in the foster home as well as the bigger dogs. Dirty laundry is another one of her favorite toys, but she doesn't destroy it, just moves it around. She is making lots of progress but will still not let the foster parents catch her if she has been spooked by something, such as a loud noise, deep voice or a stranger in the house. Foster mom Sandy

 

ZapperZapper
Racing Name: Kiowa Zapper
Age: 6 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Zapper - Happy Zappy!! The best possible way to describe this boy! Easy-going with the pack, affectionate with his people, playful with his toys, confident roacher—all are good descriptors of this adorable guy! His whirly tail is a study of happiness in motion! His preference is to hang with his people, but he does enjoy using the dog-door to sunbathe at times during the day. He walks well on leash, never counter-surfs, has an occasional comment to make (really adorable little barks or yips while his tail is in full motion)…let’s see, I can’t think of anything that could make him any cuter than he already is! Oh! He does have some definite ideas about my decorating style and insists on putting his personal touches to where a few blankets and rugs belong in the house! He never chews them—just moves them! Probably best as part of a pack OR possibly an only if his people are home most of the time. Foster mom Deb

 

ConnieConnie
Racing Name: WW's Cost
Age: 3.4 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Connie arrived at the Homecoming a timid and shy girl. It was asked that she be placed in a quiet foster home to give her time to adapt, which is exactly what she got. She rewarded us with a happy dance on her first night and has demonstrated a blossoming of confidence and general cheerful demeanor since then. Connie has very good house manners, especially after accepting the rules of "no counter surfing." She walks perfectly on leash, checking constantly with the human at the end of the leash, as if to be reassured she is doing the right thing. After doing the right thing for over 200 races, she has earned her retirement. She is staying with her foster family, who are very pleased to welcome her with open hearts. Foster mom Samanthe

 

JoyJoy
Racing Name: Mega Joya
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Joy is a very easy going girl. She may be a bit hesitant when meeting new people, however, after saying this, she has really come out of her shell and is an becoming much less hesitant. She is now starting to greet many people who enter our office. Joy has started sniffing the neighborhood dogs...we feel that playing with the neighborhood dogs will follow soon. Joy loves her walks (as much as her naps) and is so well mannered on walks. She never pulls and walks right beside us. Joy is very curious about the indoor cat (Rocky)...not aggressive but she wants to check him out. He’s not too happy about this now, however, we feel this will change over time. Joy is extremely devoted to us and has started wagging her tail when we are gone for a period of time (1/2 hour to and hour) and come back, additionally, she seems to be okay if left for longer periods of time. Joy was one of the smaller Greyhounds at homecoming weighing 53 pounds - perfect size! Foster dad Duke

Medical Hold Greyhounds

CassieCassie
Racing Name: WW Cash Chips
Age: 3 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/TBD

Cassie is absolutely the most laid back greyhound the foster mom has ever encountered, especially at the relatively young age of 3. After several weeks of retirement living she has just started eating without being coaxed. Like other greys she does like to go on walks and for rides in the car. Cassie just will not go out the dog door unless someone lifts the flap for her. But, when she wants to come in she just comes through the dog door like the flap did not exist. Yes, maybe she is a princess in the making. She has never had an accident in the house but you do have to remember to open the dog door for miss princess. She lives with 4 cats, 2 male greyhounds and a old Dalmatian. In her opinion, the dogs were OK but the cats are definitely not to her liking, at least first. She has finally gotten used to them and sleeps as they stroll by but is not a cat tolerant natural and probably would fare best in a home without cats. While on a walks she still gives small dogs that greyhound stare especially the yappy wound up ones. In general she seems happy with her self and people and would probably be just fine as an only dog. Foster mom Judy

 

BonnyBonny
Racing Name: Rico's Bonny
Age: 2.1 Sex: F Color: White and brindle with ticking
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Bonny - This little girl took no time settling into our home and pack of 3 other female greys. Now we have added another, a male grey who she thinks is wonderful because his leg, with its black boot and blue cast looks just like hers. She's a funny girl who made us laugh when she would bark at the other dog in the mirror who looked just like her. It was if she was saying "you are a very pretty girl, just like me." This passed quickly as she had better thing to do like playing with her pack members, but more importantly all those wonderful toys she discovered in the big wicker basket. A quick learner with the help of the other 4 legged sisters and brother, as she has mastered all the things a greyhound needs to know as a pet. When it comes to rides in the car she is a greyt traveler. She has found the freedom of a nice yard to relax in the sun and dog door to her liking. No need to wake up mom and dad if she has the need to go potty in the early morning hours. She loves everyone she meets on her walks and does not pull on leash.. We think because she has been living with 4 other dogs, along with mom and dad whom are retired, she needs to be in a home with another 4 legged buddy, or if alone mom and dad need not be gone more than an hour or two. Foster Dad Jay

MaltzMattz
Racing Name: Mega Pragmatic
Age: 2.5 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Mattz is the typical lovable greyhound boy who loves everyone he meets on his morning walks. He thinks he is very special with his harem of 4 female greys, all of which he gets along with very well. It took no time to settle into retirement life and all the things he is allowed to do or not to do by his humans. A big plus for this boy, he has never marked in the house. It took a little longer than most when it came to learning the dog door, but we think he was playing his humans as he seemed to enjoy waiting for them to let him in. You know - a bit lazy when it came to pushing the flap open. He seems content with his alone time as long as there is a 4 legged or 2 legged friend close by. Soft plush toys and a soft bed is what he enjoys best, spending most if his time there. If not there you can find him enjoying this 2nd love, basking in the sun on the patio. Also high on his retirement list is exploring the backyard, taking in all the sights and smells it has to offer. Never being a counter surfer or moocher, he very nicely waits his turn when it comes to meal time and passing out treats. Attention from his humans is always welcomed but will leave you alone when told to lie down or go away. A good traveler but needs training on jumping in the car on his own. A very easy going and lovable boy. Foster Dad Jay

 

 

f

Explanation of the Small dog/Cat Tolerance Listings

Nearly all greyhounds get along very well with dogs of medium size or larger, regardless of breed. But some do not get along with small dogs or cats. In the Small dog/cat tolerant listings above, the first letter refers to how we think the greyhound would do with small dogs, the second to how he would do with cats. The listings above for the most part are based on how the greyhound tested when he first came off the track. Some listings have been adjusted as we've seen how he has done in his foster home.

An "N/N" listing above means that, in our judgment, this dog is not suited to live with either small dogs (under 20 pounds) or cats. Note that some greyhounds do fine with small dogs but not with cats, so receive a Y/N listing. A "W" listing in either category means that the greyhound, with proper training and supervision such as an experienced greyhound adopter could provide, could learn to live with small dogs or cats. A "Y" listing means that the greyhound with proper supervision initially should adapt quickly to life with small dogs and cats. He may even be living with them now in his foster home. A "?" listing usually means that the dog has not yet been tested.
