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.

TazTaz
Racing Name: RF Tazmaniamoney
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Taz is a very easy going boy with long legs and soft expressive brown eyes. He loves car rides and he walks well on the leash with happy tail wags, just oozing interest in everything and everyone. We call him Mr. Curiosity because he is very busy checking out everything in his environment. He is learning about counter tops and still has some struggles with a little separation anxiety. Taz loves to use the doggie door but he is sometimes unsure about going outside or staying inside with the resident Mom & Dad. He enjoys playing with squeaky toys and tug-of-war games with his foster Dad. Taz is very gentle when accepting treats and he has no food aggression. He has shown excited curiosity when meeting a small Chihuahua but has never shown aggression. Taz is a very bright and loving young boy who would be a devoted companion. He loves to cuddle and hang out with his foster Mom & Dad but he may need close supervision with small animals and greeting visitors at the door. Foster mom Loalea.

 

EugeneEugene
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

 

GalloGallo
Racing Name: Mega Gallo
Age: 3 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Gallo is a tall, strong, curious boy who is settling into his retired life. He uses the dog door, enjoys having a selection of soft beds, and gets along with his four Greyhound housemates. He will investigate the toys in the basket but is not very engaged in playing with them yet. His preference is being with or near foster mom to watch what she is doing. He likes his walks and car rides, although he needs some assistance getting into a SUV. He is learning to walk at a more leisurely pace than what he was used to before retirement. He does not care for the small barking dogs we meet and may be best if he did not live with a cat. He can be skeptical about new things when he's out in the community. With patience and reassurance, he is adjusts well. He is affectionate, gentle, loving ear rubs and neck scratches. Gallo will greet his forever family members with a tail wag that goes around like a windmill and a soft, happy Greyhound "Roo". Foster mom Susan.

 

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

 

BevBev
Racing Name: Sister Bev
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Red fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Bev is a super sweet and affectionate little girl. She wants nothing more than to cuddle in bed with her people. She loves going for walks and playing with all her toys. She does get a bit scared around loud children so does not want to live with them. She gets along well with the small dog in the house and the other greyhounds. She is fairly calm for a 2 year old. She could possibly be an only dog in a home where people were around more often than not. Foster mom Sandy

 

 

 

DandyDandy
Racing Name: Boc's McDandy
Age: 5 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Dandy, who just turned 5 in October, is a striking red brindle male who is extremely loving. He is a very quick learner with proper teaching and is working on his manners everyday. He would be best suited with someone who works from home or works part time as he does not like to be alone for a long period of time, he would also be good with someone who has had or currently has a Greyhound and would rather be with another dog instead of being an only child. He has learned to jump in the back of an SUV and rides well in the car. He walks well with his two foster brothers and is learning to walk nicely alone but he wants those squirrels! You can't help but love this big lug! Foster dad Scott.

 

EmmieEmmie
Racing Name: Emerald Trent
Age: 3.7 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

The description on her vet release paper says it all, "Emmie is a doll." She is a sweet girl who loves affection. She puts her head on your lap to get her ears rubbed, leans against you to get full body rubs, or will maneuver her rear under your hand for her favorite spot to be scratched. She does not have sleep agression and loves to snuggle. She loves to throw her toys in the air and pounce on them. If the toy squeaks, grunts or crackles she's in heaven. Emmie loves to take them all out to play with at the same time. In the first few minutes of a car ride she will sniff out the window but then she will lay down for the rest of the ride. Emmie walks well on the leash but can get distracted and then pull. She uses the dog door and has never had an accident in the house. Her only challenge is that she likes to chew on objects if they are left around but that is easily corrected once you know her tricks. Foster mom Wendy.

 

GuyGuy
Racing Name: AMS Lonely Guy
Age: 1.7 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Guy will make a wonderful companion for anyone looking for a grey who is up for LONG walks and adventures. He is young boy at only 20 months old when he left the track after 11 races. He has a beautiful brindle coat and when he is happy he actually smiles!! When he flashes those teeth and he leaves no doubt hat he is one happy boy. His foster mom says that if she were able to keep another dog she would adopt him and name him Flash. Guy is a special boy as he combines the qualities of good looks, young age and great personality. He travels well in the car and has learned to go outside to do his business. He enjoys the other dogs in the foster home and is very respectful of them. He has also been good with our cats. Since Guy is young he may not be confident enough to be an only boy if his parents were gone long hours. Foster mom Linda

 

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

 

HydeHyde
Racing Name: Pat C Hyte
Age: 4.3 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Hyde is a sweet big boy who is a joy to live with. When I'm in the kitchen, he likes to stand behind me with his head pressed against the back of my legs and only goes away when he gets too tired to stay on his feet. He gets along very well with my two male greyhounds as well as our tiny dog and young grandchildren. He is however, a little bit of a watchdog. When someone new comes in the house, he lets you know with a deep, soft woof but he doesn't show any aggression other than that. Once he has been introduced to the new person, he is happy to make a new friend. He is good on leash and rides nicely in the car. He learned the doggy door very quickly and does all of his business outside. He loves playing with squeaky toys and stuffed animals but doesn't mangle them. He's very good with getting his teeth cleaned/brushed and will easily take a pill. I think he just likes to be fussed over. He might be ok as an only dog as he shows no sign of separation anxiety. Like I said, he's a joy to live with. Foster mom Joyce

 

MariaMaria -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: BI's Owens Toy
Age: 7.6 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Maria is a cheerful girl who loves to greet everyone with a happy grinning welcome. She adjusted immediately to a home away from the track the good farm and seems to like the two resident greyhounds. Within a day and a half she was following them in and out of the doggy door and now often goes out on her own just to check out the yard. Maria loves to throw her toys in the air and run after them. She eats well and has no food aggression. She probably still needs to be supervising whenever food is involved and is learning “eyes only” when it comes to food. Maria walks without pulling on leash and is working on learning not to lead when walking. Maria does need help understanding that when out walking she can’t race toward cats or other dogs. When at home she tends to find a bed away from everyone to take her naps, but if any of her people are moving around she is right by their side, following every move. Maria seems to be happy being with other greys or with her person so might be okay as an only dog. If you want to wake every morning to a wagging tail and happy kisses Maria is the one for you! Foster mom Helen

 

MavMav -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Mav's Billabong
Age: 5.2 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Mav came to GreySave after a long and successful carrier at two of the Florida tracks. She settled in quickly to retirement life and has not looked back, nor does she want too. A quick study living with the other retired greys now in her life, she has mastered everything her new forever home parents would be looking for. A pro at using the dog door, not a counter surfer, she rides well in the car and is laid back in the home. Mav gets along well with the other greys and does well on leash while on walks. She seems to love taking in and enjoying all the new sights and smells of retirement. She tested small dog safe when we first got her off the track, but is now showing a bit more interest in them so he adopter needs to keep an eye on her interaction with yapping, high energy small dogs. At this time we think she would be should be OK as an only dog if her family was home a lot to give her the love and pets she wants. Foster dad Jay

 

PatPat
Racing Name: Pat C No stress
Age: 2.8 Sex: M Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Pat is a handsome, precious and loving grey. He craves companionship with the resident greys and takes any opportunity to lay down and cuddle up with them. He follows his foster mom to see what she is up to and keeps her in eye contact from where he is napping. He adores all the family members and is very curious and smart. One gentle ah ah correction is all he needs. Pat has no sleep or food aggression. He potty trained within a day with proper reinforcement as there is no doggy door. He sleeps through the night picking his spot in the bedroom with the other greys. With the cooler nights, he has relished blankets wrapped around him. He has also assumed the walking blanket tent grey movement in the mornings which provide amusement to all. We consider him the Perfect Precious Pat. From day 1 he walked perfectly on the leash at the hip. He enjoys meeting everyone and relishes pats, hugs, and kisses. Pat has never touched anything in the home that was not a toy. He immediately decided that the baskets of toys in the home were all for him and enjoyed taking each one out and testing their squeakiness. Pat has learned the ropes of the home routine very quickly and is eager to please so he can get even more hugs and kisses.

Pat is not startled by anything and is very trusting of his humans. He will always come and lay his head on your lap for comfort and love. Because of Pat’s great loving personality and desire for companionship he would do well with other greys and humans that are around and not gone for long periods of time. Foster parents Pia and Brian.

 

SluggerSlugger
Racing Name: Boc's Slugger
Age: 3.9 Sex: M Color: White and brindle with ticking
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Slugger is an extremely gentle, mellow greyhound. At almost 4 years old he is well passed his puppy stage. He wants nothing more than a soft bed to roach on, some tasty treats, and the adoring love of his humans. He gets very excited when we come home and loves to have his ears scratched and his belly rubbed. Slugger walks well on a leash and is an excellent eater. He has never had an accident in the house and is let outside every few hours to potty. He could easily be trained to use a doggy door. Slugger hasn't really discovered the joys of toys yet but with time he'll probably come around. Slugger lives in harmony with two senior greys, a senior shepherd, and cats. He would probably be fine as an only dog, provided his people were around enough.Foster mom Maggie

 

JudyJudy
Racing Name: Bart's Jumpforjoy
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: F Color: White and black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Cutie Judy is a tiny bundle of energy and love. She's a toy hoarder and loves bringing them in and out the dog door. If you're looking for a fun loving player, she's it. Gets along very well with the 4 other dogs, and plays with them. We are still working on counter surfing but all her other house manners are perfect. She knows her spot for feeding and waits there patiently for her turn. Judy likes people and is not shy, but quick movements or loud noises that she is not expecting have her "heading for the hills". As of 11-15 she has 2-3 more weeks of limited activity on her broken leg, it is healing well and did not require surgery. Foster mom Sue

Medical Hold Greyhounds

AngelAngel -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Razor Angel
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Angel is a big, beautiful, young boy – a puppy with a heart (and coat and eyes) of gold. He has plenty of energy for exploring and playing, but (like all good greyhounds) he also knows how to be mellow and he loves his naps and down time. Within minutes of coming into our house, he had found the toy box. He entertains himself by carrying toys from room to room and then rearranging them. He is confident about the world without being bossy, and he gets along extremely well with the other greyhounds in the house. As he settles in, he is trying to engage a bit more with the three resident cats, but is learning to respect the fact that they don’t really want to play with him. Angel is very affectionate and likes to put his head in people’s laps to be petted. He also likes cuddles of all kinds and would probably climb into your lap with a little encouragement. Because of his size and his puppy enthusiasm, he might be too much for small children or small dogs, but he would probably enjoy older kids and certainly would appreciate an active household and people who are willing to give him long walks and plenty of exercise. Angel is a happy, good-natured boy just waiting to show off what a great companion he will be.

 

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

 

IgluIglu
Racing Name: Mega Iglu
Age: 3 1/2 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Iglu aka Iggie aka Biggie aka BigFoot. Just a big fun loving guy. He enjoys being close to you and will stand endlessly next to you for scritches. He's a bit of a klutz, seems its quite comfortable for him to stand on your foot, but still very polite and steps off if nudged. Does not get on furniture or beds! Toys are okay, but he's more of a tennis ball guy. He will amuse himself in the yard tossing the ball around until it ends up somewhere he can't retrieve it. His broken leg has healed but he is still working on getting the tendons and muscles stretched and still limps a bit. Sometimes he get a bit rambunctious playing with other dogs, so supervision is recommended during those times. He's housebroken to a dog door and has never had accident in the house. His leash walking ability still needs a bit of work since his activity was restricted initially, but overall he does well. Iggie is looking for some excitement, lots of walks and attention. Might do well as an only dog if not alone for extended period of time, he does howl when we leave for a minute even with the other dogs there. Foster mom Sue

 

SaschaSascha -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: WW's Snowbaby
Age: 1 3/4 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

What a little charmer! Sascha can best be described as “engaging”. She is a sweet, gentle girl who approaches for scritches and cuddles. She gives an occasional gentle kiss, especially after you have eaten something! She is extremely food-motivated and will gently take treats from your hand. She loves hanging out with the other dogs and would be very happy if her broken hock didn’t forbid her from romping with the big boys of the household. She is good in the car—usually just goes and lies down during her weekly trip to Orange County. Her leash manners still need a little work but she makes up for that by being very polite and not counter-surfing. She could possibly be an only dog if her people were home most of the time—currently she is crated when her foster family is not home to monitor her activity—and while she does not particularly like the crate, she is calm and quiet in it. She has never had an accident in the house and learned the dog door from the resident greys. She plays with stuffies but sometimes gets more invested in chewing the stuffy rather than squeaking it. She still gets a little timid at rapid movements, large moving objects or loud noises, but she is getting better every day. Foster mom Deb

 

PaganPagan
Racing Name: Mega Pagan
Age: 3 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Pagan is a sweet lovable boy who loves to have a good ear message. He goes off by himself multiple times a day to sleep, but needs a friend to show him the ropes. He gets along well with his four greyhound sisters. He has a large overbite and does the greyhound smile, which is a favorite of mine. He does the stairs well, even with a cast on his leg. He mastered the doggy door in a day and has never had an accident in the house. Pagan loves to ride in the car, good thing with weekly cast changes and alway up to a meet and greet.

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.
