PLEASE NOTE: We've found that people who choose a dog based on a photo and brief profile such as those below often don't end up with the best dog for their lifestyle and family. So rather than let adopters pick the dog they want from these profiles, our adoption representatives use all the information we have on each dog to help adopters find just the right dog. Our goal is always a match that's great for both dog and family. Please allow us to help you find the best greyhound for you.

  • Some of the dogs below are ready for adoption, while others are being prepared. Contact Cathy Kiburtz about availability.
  • Adoption Pending dogs are about to be adopted. Foster to Adopt dogs likely will be adopted by their foster home.

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

 

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

 

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.

 

PiperPiper
Racing Name: Barts Can't Wait
Age: 3.3 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Piper is a sweet little girl that rapidly gained her confidence. She loves people but usually waits for them to invite her for some attention. Totally motivated by food and very smart, she could easily learn new skills or greyhound tricks. Along with her intelligence she has a silly side too. One morning I realized that she figured out my alarm clock and now comes in when it goes off and pokes me with her cold wet nose. After being told to go back to bed, which she does and I've hit the snooze button, she will come back when it goes off again. I think she does this not so much to make sure I don't oversleep but because she wants breakfast. Piper's manners are excellent, she doesn't even get on the furniture. However, any unattended food, dog or human will be hers. Walks are fun for her and she does pretty well on a leash. Of course she loves squeaky toys and enjoys taking them in and out through the dog door. I think she would do well as an only dog with a family that has someone home most of the time. Foster mom Sue.

 

BonnyBonny -- Adoption pending
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

 

BelleBelle -- Adoption pending
Racing Name: Virginia Belle
Age: 2.2 Sex: F Color: White and red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Belle has embraced her retirement and is adjusting quite nicely. Within the first hour in our home she had discovered toys and started taking them to her bed. Belle is very affectionate and will lay her head in your lap to be pet. She goes to our office every day and enjoys meeting new people, greeting them all very politely. Even at this young age she's quite calm and walks beautifully on a leash. Belle enjoys going for car rides and settles down quite nicely. Noises don't startle her. Belle gets along very well with the resident greys, bonding quickly with our youngest grey boy. She is good with our little dogs but is a bit too intense about our cats for my liking. Foster mom Linda.

 

CutieCutie
Racing Name: TNJ Short Cut
Age: 3.4 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Cutie is a lively, happy, fun girl who is thoroughly enjoying her retirement. She loves her walks, loves her meals, and loves playing with stuffie toys (which she collects and hordes in her bed). She is always up for adventures and exercise, but also excels at the “other greyhound sport” (i.e., napping). Her leash manners are improving every day, and she is getting the message that counter surfing is not allowed. Although she is still initially shy with strangers, her wariness lasts just a few minutes, and then she is everybody’s best friend. She loves affection from humans and seems to be getting ready to turn into a real cuddler. Cutie currently lives peaceably with three rather scary cats, and she has had a few good visits with small dogs -- but she is very interested in little creatures (especially when they move!) and will need continued supervision and training with small animals. She enjoys the company of her greyhound foster siblings (and they all like her) but she is also showing signs of enough confidence to possibly be an only dog, provided she had her humans around enough to entertain her. Cutie is really a delightful girl and will be an excellent, engaging companion. Foster mom Monireh

 

DandyDandy
Racing Name: Dandy
Age: 2.1 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Dandy is an amazing boy. Calm beyond his years, very gentle, happy and easy going. He walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. He likes the grandkids, his foster home greyhound friends and even the little tiny tinker bell dog he lives with. He could use the dog door from day one, waits for his food and plays nicely with the toys. His only downside is that he has discovered the pleasures and comfort of the couch! OK, we wonder if he maybe he was not really a track dog but maybe a plant that just hitched a ride from a home in Tucson. Foster mom Joyce.

 

MarionMarion
Racing Name: RJ's Marrion
Age: 4.7 Sex: F Color: Black brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: W/N

Marion is adorable but she still needs some work. While she got the concept of the dog door down within a day or two the concept of why she is going out sometimes slips her memory. But rewards for good outside potting go a long way with her. She has done really well with separation anxiety training and because of that she was given full reign of the house very quickly! She does know how to counter surf, so we have to constantly remind ourselves to tidy! She does well with her greyhound friend, Klaxon, although she can get possessive and will growl if he eyes her kong and stuffies. Speaking of stuffies--she quickly learned how amazing stuffed toys are. She adorably takes toys and puts them on her bed. Sometimes she'll come when called with a toy still in her mouth. She does fantastic on walks and is not shy at all with people. In fact when people ask if they can pet her, or have just start petting her, she immediately starts wagging her tail and seems to enjoy new folks. Marion is bit older grey compared to the rest of the fosters we've had in the past so naturally she's just more stuck in her ways. With a lot of patience, practice and persistence I'm sure that Marion's minor short-comings will improve. We believe that Marion, now affectionately called Kiwi will become part of our family. Foster mom Melissa.

 

PatPat
Racing Name: Pat C Feel It
Age: 3.8 Sex: M Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: N/N

Pat is a stunning red male with a loving personality. He is a quick learner and is still learning the "ropes" from his two foster brothers. He welcomes visitors to the house, has fun with his toys, loves long walks and rides well in the car. He loves his foster bro's but would probably be okay as an only dog but he does not like to be left alone very long. This boy loves to be with you when you are around! Foster dad Scott

 

 

 

PriddyPriddy
Racing Name: Priddy
Age: 2.2 Sex: F Color: White and red
Small dog/cat tolerant: W/N

Priddy is a sweet and extremely affection girl. She loves to snuggle up close with her humans. She had her head in the "stuffies" basket after the first hour of coming into our home. She walks exceptionaly well on leash and likes to follow her foster mom everywhere. She greets all that come thru our door with a big smile and wiggly, squiggly body wag. She eats very well also, not picky at all! She learned the stairs the first time up. She is turning into a good swimmer as she had her first lesson this past weekend. She is a bit of a counter surfer when food is involved. Her appetite is unsatiable! She will need another dog or humans that are home most of the time as she doesn't like being by herself. She will make an excellent traveling companion as she listens well, travels well and loves meeting new people and seeing new places. She is a love! Foster mom Gwen

 

RavenRaven
Racing Name: PG's Run Raven
Age: 2.9 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Raven is very calm and gentle. She enjoys her walks and does great on the leash. She gets along well with her foster sisters--another greyhound and a chihuahua mix, although we're hesitant that she would fare well with a cat. She quickly learned to climb up/down the stairs. Although we do not have a doggie door, she is house trained with routine and careful monitoring. She may get a tad excited looking out the window and seeing the neighbors walking their dogs. She might bark or whine but will quickly get over it. Raven is a very curious girl and likes to investigate things. She doesn't counter surf as she did when she first came into our home, but Raven has a hearty appetite so we just keep an eye on our food when she is close by. Our youngest child is differently-abled and wheelchair bound. Raven lets him know she is there by getting up close to him, sniffing him, and resting her head on his arm, very precious. She enjoys squeaky toys. She still gets a bit confused looking at her image in the mirror and it's funny watching her try to sniff herself. All in all, Raven is a very sweet, loving and gentle dog and will bring a lot of joy and happiness to a loving adoptive family. Foster mom Renee.

 

 


 

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

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.
