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.

EbonBen -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: (Unknown)
Age: 2 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Ben (Ebon) is a wonderful, exuberant puppy who is playing with toys, doing okay on the leash and loves to eat. He will squeak toys but really prefers to play with a person, and seems to be especially attached to men. He has done very well with potty training. Ben does a lot of pacing through the house, but he does respond when we tell him "lay down," and certainly understands and responds to "no"! Some of his pacing is looking for the cat. He needs to know where he is every moment but backs away as soon as he finds the hissy thing! I think Ben would be more comfortable in a home without cats. He gets very excited when he sees small dogs, but he has been fine with the ones he has met. Foster mom Marcia.

 

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 object! 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.

 

HerculesHercules
Racing Name: Bella Pahrump
Age: 3 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Hercules is a wonderfully calm loving boy! He has gotten along with everyone that he has met. He had a hard time learning the stairs, but has conquered them (quite ungracefully!) He has fallen in the pool multiple times and has chosen to swim around for a minute or so before going to the stairs. He eats really well and walks on leash well also, even with all the enthusiasm of a younger pup. Hercules loves to be with his foster canines and his humans equally. I've never had a foster that has taken to playing with toys and play bowing with the resident greyhounds so quickly after exiting his track life. He is excited when his humans come home from an outing but waits patiently to be acknowledged. Hercules is the perfect gentleman and this foster mom will be sad to see him go as he has brought many smiles to this family! Not long after Hercules came to GreySave his foster mom noticed that he seemed to have vision issues especially in the dark. He went to the eye doctor and has was diagnosed with progressive retinal atrophy. We have ordered him some special ocular vitamins that should help him stay healthy. I know a sight hound with vision problems seems strange but they do get a lot of sand and debris in their eyes when they are blasting around the track. In spite of his slight vision problems he has learned the lay of the land and races around the yard with the other hounds. He also seems to be smarter hound and quick learner but would do best in a house with no indoor stairs! Hercules is confident in his abilities and might do ok as an only dog as long as his humans are around and not gone all day for work. Foster mom Gwen

 

OchoOcho -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Mega Ochopee
Age: 3 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Ocho is a very sweet, slightly timid, girl who really wants to please her people. She has never had an accident in the house and will wait to be let out to do her business even though she knows all about the doggie door. She gets along well with the three male greyhounds in the family and has learned that her foster mom is the pack leader so she can relax and not worry about what those big boy dogs might be up to. When Ocho first came to the house she was showing some bossy or dominant traits especially toward the small family dog but is much better now that she learned that Tinker Bell was not a stuffed toy. She now pretty much ignores the small dog and focuses on keeping her people happy. She really does want to be good, be praised and petted and just please everyone. Ocho is easy to walk on a leash plus rides well in the car. Now that she has discovered them Ocha really does like to play with squeaky toys, to collect them and admire them as treasures. Her foster mom feels that Ocho should live with dogs that are closer to her size or large enough so she does not mistake them for toys. Foster mom Joyce

 

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

 

BoltonBolton
Racing Name: Volando Yelton
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

What a great pup Bolton is! He's so easy and fun to have around! Bolton is a master roacher and spends most of his time napping with his feet wiggling in the air above his head. When he isn't snoozing, Bolton loves to take walks and is wonderful on a leash. He also loves stuffy toys. He enjoys having his foster parents throw them for him or he can entertain himself. Bolton lives with two senior greyhounds, a shepherd mix, and cats. He's seems to enjoy being around them but is mostly interested in the whereabouts of his people. He naps in the kitchen while his foster mom works in there and enjoys playing with his foster dad while he tries to do yoga. Bolton is a great eater and let out a regular intervals, as we don't have a doggie door, has had no accidents in the house. Bolton also travels well in the car. This boy is an excellent companion and would be fine as an only dog provided he's not left alone for long periods of time. Foster mom Maggie

 

CocoCoco -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Barts Cece
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Coco’s nickname is busy bee. She is a very active little girl who loves all people and dogs. She loves to squeak her toys as soon as the sun is up. She likes to play with all sizes of dogs and plays much longer than the average greyhound. She is very smart and learns quickly, especially when food is involved. She pulls a bit on the leash but we are working on that. And Coco really does not like cats. Foster mom Sandy

 

 

KingsleyKingsley
Racing Name: Mega Calamity
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: M Color: White and fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Kingsley is a bouncy, playful, puppy with endless curiosity. He is best suited for an experienced Greyhound family who knows how to assert their leadership on time. Kingsley currently lives with several other dogs. He does not always know his limits with the seniors in the house and can get into trouble with the older dogs. It would be ideal if Kingsley could have a friend his age to keep him properly entertained. Kingsley has mastered the crating and automatically goes to his "bedroom" to sleep quietly all night. He continues to perfect his lead training however because of his swift and sometimes bolting movements, continued training on the lead is a must. Kingsley loves the playful movements of children yet he is best suited for a family where the children are older. Kingsley is very smart and is easily corrected when necessary. Little by little he has abandoned his counter surfing attempts, dumpster diving and cleptomaniac ways. The days since his first potty training accident are gone, and he is using the doggy door like an old pro. Kingsley is such an entertaining pup. He only wants to please and is all waggy-tail when his family returns. Sometimes his enthusiastic welcome results in unnecessary jumping on the human. Providing him with a treat upon return has taught Kingsley to avoid this habit and keep all four on the ground. He does have puppy chewing tendencies so be sure to keep those ever important chew toys around. In fact, keeping plenty of toys around is an easy fix to keeping Kingsley from taking things that are perhaps not his. Not to mention he is the funniest when tossing his toys aimlessly in the air. Most adorable and special, is the neck snuggle with his foster mom when it's simply time to say...I love you. Foster mom Roberta

 

KirbyKirby
Racing Name: BF Kiowa Will
Age: 4 1/2 Sex: M Color: White and black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Kirby is a sweet, affectionate, and energetic boy who loves being around people. His first favorite thing in life is eating, but attention and snuggles from people is a close second. He's adapted well to life in the house and gets along great with his greyhound buddies. His love for food makes him eager to learn new things for rewards. Kirby shows no interest in neighborhood cats and is good with small dogs. He doesn't chew but will look around for anything delicious within reach. Kirby is fearless on hardwood floors, stairs, and can get into surprisingly small spaces. He's picking up the idea of toys but doesn't yet get that "bring it" is an integral part of fetch. Kirby's ideal home would have lots of love and attention and another four legged friend. Foster dad Matt.

 

LillyLilly -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: WW's Souix
Age: 1 3/4 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

This wonderful dog smiled at me when I picked her up at homecoming! Lilly loves meeting people and is overjoyed when around children. How we wish we had room for one more! She gets along quite well with our small dogs and enjoys hanging out with our resident greys. Cats are not a problem either. Lilly loves squeaky toys and treats. However she is a messy eater! No accidents in our house and we do not have a dog door. She is learning leash manners and is doing very well. She is bright, learning "Stay" and "No". She stills wants to check out the trash can and enjoys a good book - to chew on that is. But that was my fault, not hers. Lilly is a brindle beauty with expressive eyes. Foster mom, Linda

 

MilanMilan
Racing Name: WW's Mile Post
Age: 4 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Milan is a cheerful, enthusiastic, affectionate girl. She was initially quite overwhelmed by life off the track and was very worried about meeting new people and dealing with new experiences – but her happy nature is winning out and she grows more confident every day. “Miley” (as her foster family calls her) has already become an absolute cuddle monkey with her foster mother and she is learning to approach other people, as well. She loves her walks and is quickly learning leash manners; she is also figuring out that bicycles, baby carriages, and even strangers may be more interesting than scary. Miley behaves beautifully in the house – she learns quickly from gentle instructions and corrections, and has never had an accident in the house. Miley lives peaceably with three cats and gets along fine with the tiny dogs who have come over to visit. She looks to her three greyhound foster siblings for direction on how to negotiate the world, but also would like to boss them about a little! Miley will need a home with people willing to continue to help her build confidence, but she is ready blossom into a fun-loving, affectionate, and lively companion. Foster mom Monireh

 

StellaStella
Racing Name: Volando Stella
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Stella has gone from spooked to spectacular. She came to our house very scared of her new surroundings. She has fit in to our home and to a schedule great ever since. She is a good eater and likes treats. She has taken an interest in toys almost from day one and she and our dog Tigger have great fun playing with them together. There have been no accidents because she lets us know by standing at the door or making noises to let her out because we do not have a dog door. She does well being left at home for short lengths of time, she gets vocal when we return wanting to see us. She does ok on her leash. She is learning to walk without pulling too much, the longer the walk the less pulling at the end. She still gets spooked at noises and things happening on the walk. I keep her on a shorter leash so she knows I am there for her and she calms down quickly. She likes Tiggers company but may do ok as an only dog if she is not left alone for too long of periods of time. She is quite velcro when her foster mom is in the the house. She is young, raced only 6 races so she is living the good life at a young age and I think she is enjoying it. Foster mom Holly

 

AmyAmy
Racing Name: Mega Amazon
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Amy is an exuberant, playful, and affectionate young lady. She loves to play at the drop of a hat and will entertain herself by throwing toys all around the room if there is no one willing to play with her. Her antics are hilarious. Amy sleeps, romps, and walks with the three other greys in the pack and has even shared her bed with the family cat. This delightful, petite girl makes friends with everyone whether human or animal. She is smart, quick to learn new things and is a sweet companion. Amy loves car rides and short walks to the park. She is confident, curious, and outgoing. She might do well as an only dog if someone is home to spend time with her. Foster mom Cindy

 


 

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.

 

HollyHolly -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Last two bucks
Age: 3 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Holly is quite the character. She broke her front leg at the Tucson track just before Christmas and was able to get a nice couple to bring her part way to California to meet the GreySave hauler. Luckily someone at the Tucson track knew that GreySave would take a broken girl and that we had the vets and financial resources to get her fixed. From the moment our hauler team met her she was all charm and wiggles. She is a jet black, kissy, sweet girl that wants to get along with everyone she meets. Holly is now recovering from the break and surgery and is out of her bandages. She has strict orders to walk several times a day to make the strengthen the long bone. That's good because she loves to go walking. She lives with three other greys and is happy to be part of the sleep, eat and walk team. She likes sqeaky toys and to tote odd pieces of clothing, trash or plastic parts around. She does not damage anything just likes to tote them. She cannot stand to have any toys left in the toy box and they must be on the rug. Holly loves to go to Meet and Greets to say hi and today met all sorts of small and furry canines. Holly has someone very interested in her but is not yet ready to leave the rehab foster home. Foster mom Cathy.

 

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

 

RustyRusty
Racing Name: Razorsammy
Age: 3 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Rusty -- Add the word klutz to a big male goof ball and you have Rusty. A real pro at counter surfing he was a quick to learn that this is is not allowed. In fact all the lessons of being a wellbehaved greyhound were learned in two days or less. Being a real trooper he never did have an accident in the house or even mark. His cast has not slowed this boy down, as he enjoys taking short morning walks with the other greys he lives with. He will pull at first but then settles down and walks very nicely on leash. He most enjoys evenings with the humans. While they sip a cool one on the patio he always makes it a point to join them by taking a nap on the grass. Weekly trips to the vet, as well as frequent trips to mom and dad's office, have made him a real pro at car rides. Never once has he tried to use the sofa or a chair for a bed, as he is most happy on one of the 5 dog beds located throughout the house. Other dogs are not an issue with him when he meets them on our walks, or even if they bark at him from behind a fence or gate. As Rusty is happiest when with his foster mom or dad, and the other greys, he would not do well as an only dog. He always needs a buddy. As an added feature this hound gives you big smiles when he gets excited and is also starting to show interest in toys. Foster Dad Jay.

MandiMandi -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Volando Mandy
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: F Color: White and brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Mandi has adjusted well to her new life off the racetrack. She is a puppy and is full of energy. She has mastered the dog door and has discovered the box of dog toys. Mandi gets along well with our other greyhound and does well with other dogs in social situations, but she needs to be watched around our cats as she does show some interest. Her broken toe has not been an issue with her playfulness and inquisitive nature. Mandi does well on lead and will make a great walking partner once she learns who's the boss. She is every bit a diamond in the rough.

 

SaschaSascha
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

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.
