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.

Cha ChaCha Cha
Racing Name: Chaching Babling
Age: 2.6 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: N/N

Sweet little Cha-Cha dances around the house with her toys and other items that she finds fun to play with. She loves people, is not a bit shy and could possibly become a lap dog. So far she hasn't shown any interest in jumping on furniture or beds which we (meaning my greys) think is a good thing. Cha-Cha does pretty well on leash and enjoys going to work with me and meeting new friends. She will howl for a minute when we leave but settles down quickly. She probably would do best with another dog in the home. Mastering the dog door took a couple of hours once she was able to be loose with her splint. The broken leg has healed and she is scheduled for hardware removal on June 1st. She's a smart girl and learns quickly. Never misses out on treats and will eat or drink anything within her reach. We are working on that, but unattended she will steal food. Cha-Cha is a "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" kinda gal. She has a ton of love and amusement to offer her new family! Foster mom Sue

 

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

 

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

 

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 who has made a drastic improvement since he came into our home. He has gone from being timid to fun loving and affectionate with his foster dads and his two foster brothers as well as company and other Greyhounds who come to visit. He loves his plush toys and nyla-bones and plays with them often. As much as he is loving he also loves his alone time and will sneak off to the bedroom to rest while everyone else is together in the family room but makes an appearance every once and awhile. He is a quick learner and pretty much has learned the “ropes” around here from his two foster brothers. He loves his long walks and is pretty good on the leash and in the car. We are still working on him jumping into the SUV. He sleeps in the crate with the door open and prefers the bolster bed over the other choices in the house. I can not say for sure he will not have some seperation anxiety if he’s an only dog but he seems to have broken that while he is with the other two. This guy has a lot of love to give!! Foster dad Scott

 

PriddyPriddy -- Adoption pending
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

 

ArianaAriana
Racing Name: Jed's Ariana
Age: 1.8 Sex: F Color: Red Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Ariana is an adorable, tiny girl that is still learning the perks of retirement. She has mastered the dog door, understands “go to your pillow” and rides well in the car. She can be a little skittish at times but continues to gain confidence with everyday items such as large boxes. She seeks affection frequently during the day from her foster family and will give tiny little kisses in return. Although not very trusting of strangers, she is learning to relax in new environments when she goes on home visits and is starting to approach the applicants in their home, but still is not comfortable with strangers in her foster home. The thing she seems to enjoy most about retirement is laying in the sun—she doesn’t even care if she has a pillow to lay on! She gets along well with the resident 4-pack and has adapted easily to visiting 4-leggeds. Foster mom Deb.

 

BonusBonus
Racing Name: Dutch Bonus
Age: 3.3 Sex: M Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Bonus is a friendly guy! Mostly good on a leash, though he still wanders a bit, great with cats and small dogs, and house-trained already. He is always happy to meet new people and is very affectionate with his foster family. He loves chew treats and enjoys his plush toys too. He is still learning to sit when the people are eating but he does listen to commands. 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 gets along well with my two small dogs. He does get lonely and cries when he is in a crate, but only if there isn't another dog in the room with him. I let him sleep in his crate with my rat terrier in the bedroom with him and he sleeps through the night. He is more connected to people than other dogs but he seems to find them comforting to be around when he is alone. Foster mom Jillian

 

CarolCarol
Racing Name: WW's Revolt
Age: 3.7 Sex: F Color: Light brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Carol started out a bit wary of her new surroundings and what she was supposed to eat, but she quickly embraced her new life. She responds well to instructions: such as "no counter-surfing," "time to go outside," and caught on within two days how to walk politely on leash. She stays close to one of her greyhound housemates, looking for guidance. It suggests she would be happier with another companion, but if her new people are around a lot, she likes to know what you are doing, too. Carol also lives with two cats and has shown little interest in them once she realized they were part of the home scene. She is very at ease with being at home when we go out for errands, but is also an easy traveler. This is a greyhound gem! Foster Mom, Samanthe

 

ChristoChristo
Racing Name: Country Christo
Age: 3.7 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Christo is a sweet, fuzzy teddy bear! He likes to be close to his person and loves to get pets and hugs. He is quiet and laid back but has a healthy curiosity about all the new objects he never got to see when living at the track. Christo is house trained and uses the doggie door without any issues. Once outside he comes right back in as he prefers the comforts of inside to the outside. He walks well on the leash but still may startle when cars pass. He is getting better over time and experience. Christo is a super sweet, easy going boy who lives with two queen bee greyhound girls. He does well with them but probably would be OK as an only if his people could be home with him as he does like to see them and get a bit of attention. Foster mom Helen

 

CuddlesCuddles
Racing Name: AJN Bon Cuddles
Age: 1.6 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Cuddles quickly adapted to retirement. She was using a doggie door and scaling the stairs within a couple of days of retirement. Our greyhounds are free-fed, and Cuddles is willing to wait her turn to “nibble on her kibble”. She loves to toss stuffed toys and laying in the shade on the back patio. Cuddles is a natural sitter. As a young dog, she is quite curious about her surroundings checking out everything on tables and counters. She is glued to my side when cooking, hoping to sample the cuisine. Cuddles prefers to be near her humans and will move from room to room with you. Cuddles could be an only dog for someone looking for a companion. Foster parents Chick & Carolyn

 

DenoDeno
Racing Name: D Win Deno
Age: 2.4 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Deno is a sweet, gentle, affectionate red brindle boy. He is low key but very playful and animated when excited and happy. He is smart and has learned the meaning of a few words as well as nonverbal cues. He walks fairly well on a leash but is still quite interested in dogs. No real experience with cats. He loves squeaky toys and often carries them around with him. He has a great appetite but doesn't counter surf after a few attempts. He gets along well with our other greyhounds in the household. He shows no aggressive behavior when awake or asleep. He sleeps well at night on his big dog bed. He is aware of windows and screen doors and is not really into mirrors. He loves to snuggle and would love to sleep in bed with someone if given the chance. This guy is a real sweetheart. If I could have another Grey he would be the one! Foster parents Rod & Judy

 

FancyFancy
Racing Name: Still Sofancy
Age: 2.3 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Fancy is a sweetheart of a girl. She reminds us of a little toddler..very happy and always wanting to play with ALL the toys, whether it's for doggies or humans. She is a little sneak and will steal her human's stuffed animals, so if you treasure your personal stuffies, do not let her see it..although her antics are rather funny. Fancy gets along well and enjoys her walks with her foster siblings (another greyhound and a chihuahua mix). She has a tendency to cross in front of the person holding her leash quite a bit but we are positive that in time she will learn to walk a straighter path, as she is just as curious as can be. Her nose has been working a bit on overtime as it seems she gets a kick out of sniffing nearly everything in sight. She is a fun girl and can be very playful. She has no problem going up & down the stairs, and is house trained. Fancy is a such joy to have around and will be a wonderful addition to any family. Foster mom Renee

 

FerrisFerris
Racing Name: Ferris Wheel
Age: 1.9 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Ferris is a big, goofy, loveable guy who really wants to please the crowd. He wags, smiles, nits & will flop over to get tummy rubs. He is an extremely smart grey who learns most things in a snap. He had the doggy door down in literally seconds; he’s learning “go to your bed & wait” & “leave it” & has not had a single potty accident in the house. All that being said, he still is quite a puppy: he picks up any portable object he can. He likes to gently gnaw both the corners of furniture & the small dogs’ head…no damage on that front, but the little dog is often damp & looking disgruntled. He still does the “full-room” skitter on the hard floor surfaces, but it’s getting better every day. Ferris is also a bit too interested in the cats (who are indoor/outdoor) but I think that’s more because he’s fascinated by their movements. When face to face, he is curious, but not engaged on a mission & the cats seem relaxed in that situation which is a good indication that they feel no imminent threat. I feel that Ferris would not likely be a good candidate for an “only” dog unless he is homed with a person or persons who are around a lot, like people who work at home or could take him to the office. He is anxious & somewhat vocal when I leave but settled down with the pack present. His energy level is medium until food time…then it’s crazy time. He barks, spins, jumps on the others, skids into walls & generally makes himself a massive nuisance. We are working on this & he’s definitely getting better, but this dog will require a bit of attention on this front to get his clown car under control. All told, Ferris is a marvelous guy who is a bit of a diamond in the rough & a huge, happy personality. Foster mom Sandy

 

GeminiGemini
Racing Name: WW Gemini Bits
Age: 3.3 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Gemini had a long and successful race career with 178 races, but she settled right into the routine in her foster home as if she had been there all along. She is an easy hound to have around and very calm. Her coloring is unique as she looks black at first, but in the light you see her beautiful brindle shine through. She has a cute signature nose twitch when she smells something interesting. She mastered the staircase on day 1. We do not have a dog door, but she hasn't had any accidents in the house and will let you know when she is ready to go outside. Gemini walks nicely on a leash, is curious about everything happening, and is up for long walks to check out the neighborhood. She is fine with all types of dogs she encounters. She lives with one other greyhound that she gets along with well, but she is fairly independent and might do ok in a single dog home. She will make a very sweet and easy companion. Foster parents Eli and Libby

 

KiowaKiowa
Racing Name: WW's Ample
Age: 3.3 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: W/W

Kiowa is a large but sweet laid back guy. He is a but shy with new people and situations but recovers quickly. Isn't pushy but wants to be loved, would rather hang out getting pets than run around when outside. Has used dog door from day one. Loves food and is learning not all food is his. He gets excited for walks and pulls a bit but a block into it he relaxes and takes it all in. He has no issues with the in his face pesky little white dog that he is curently living with. He is a great traveler. Sniffs out the windows but lays down quickly. Can't be an only dog. Foster mom Wendy

 

TomTom -- Adoption pending
Racing Name: AJN Hathaway Tom
Age: 2.7 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Tom is a very sweet, gentle, and calm boy. He’s adjusting very well to family life. He’s a quick learner. He conquered the stairs in a day and has learned to patiently wait for his meals. However, he will happily eat any food left unattended. He is building his confidence and is really starting to show his character. He loves long walks and being outdoors. He is excellent on a leash. He is ready for bed at 9pm every night and sleeps like a champ as long as he is near his human. He loves hugs and kisses. He is quickly learning that he loves toys! He likes his toys all around him and has carried his favorites upstairs at bedtime. He has very good manners and is learning how to communicate when he needs to go out. He likes to follow us around everywhere we go, keeping an eye on his humans. He would do great as a single dog with a family that is home frequently. Foster mom Valli

 

 


 

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

 

FloFlo
Racing Name: WW Let it Flow
Age: 3.3 Sex: F Color: Red brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Flo came to GreySave after running 184 races at the Caliente track and after she broke her leg. She was timid when she first came off the track but is more comfortable with people now that as she settled into her foster home, had her leg is splinted and she is pain free. Flo is a very sweet girl who lives well with two other female greyhounds. She likes being around her foster sisters, seeing how they have adjusted to post-track life and taking her turn on one of soft dog beds. Flo likes dog toys and has figured out that she can squeak and toss them. She has mastered the art of going up and down the stairs, even with a cast on. Like most new track hounds Flo learned much of what she knows about living in a house from the other greys in the pack and that includes how and why to use the dog door. Flo has never gone potty in the house as it is just not who she is. She rides nicely in the car and walks well on leash. And best of all she is happy to go to meet & greets. She is very gracious when people, even kids come up and pet her. Foster mom Kathy

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.
