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.
  • The bottom of this page explains how we rate a dog's small dog or cat tolerance.

Racing Name: Mitey Ravage
Age: 2 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Blue is very energetic and loves to play fetch the toy or chase the ball. As busy as he is, he rides more calmly in the car than any hound I've ever transported - he just curls up until you get where you're going. He likes using the dog door and does his business outside. He gets along very well with our two male greys and I have never heard him growl or show any sign of food, toy or sleep aggression. Once he figured out our chihuahua is actually a dog, he has been fine with her. He's a very happy boy and would be a fun companion for someone with time to play and walk or hike with him. He is also very good with kids. Foster mom Joyce.


Racing Name: (Unknown)

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.


Racing Name: Showme Jujitsu
Age: 2 Sex: M Color: White and black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

In greyhounds they call black & white “party colors,” and Felix likes a good time! He is a happy 2 year old boy who loves hanging out with his new foster brothers. They are all small dogs, and he’s very good with them, especially his play pal, Bentley. Felix likes all people. He hasn’t met any cats. He likes to play with soft toys and tennis balls – he throws them in the air and tries to catch them! He also loves his comfy bed and a good romp in the backyard. He’s very gentle and polite – takes treats very carefully. He walks very well on leash and he sleeps just fine in his crate. He’s such a gentleman, its hard to believe he’s only 2. This sweet, loving boy will be an excellent buddy for a lucky family out there. Foster mom Christine.


Racing Name: OMG Onyx
Age: 4 1/2 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: N/N

Onyx is an fun and loving pup to have around. He rides great in the car checks things out then spends the remainder of the trip laying down. He walks wonderfully on the leash, but could use some work on his zig zag pattern. Loud noises or lots of excitement don't phase him. He's very friendly. When he is in new environment he will check it all out but in a cautious manner. He does roo and roach both are quite charming. He has no problem sharing food and no issue with you bothering him while sleeping or on his bed. Onyx would love to have a playmate. He trys to get his foster brothers, a greyhound and a basset, to play but they wont. It did take Onyx a while to relax in his new environment. He no longer whines when anxious and is beginning to enjoy playing with toys. Yes, it was a big adjustment from Florida to Tucson and then to California. He is going to make a wonderful family member and is looking for his Forever Home but that would be without cats and small fluffy dogs. Kids are just fine though. Foster mom Wendy.


RyanRyan -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Ciudad de Amor
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Ryan is a very sweet young brindle male with big beautiful eyes. He has made wonderful progress since he has been with us. He has two foster brothers who have accepted him and enjoy their walks and just hanging out. He’s a great passenger in the car. Ryan would be happier with a playmate and would be better served with someone who either works from home or is not gone for very long. Ryan has a few medical “issues” that do not really seem to impede his day to day life but he may take a little longer to understand what you mean…but he eventually catches on. He loves stuffed squeaky toys and tennis balls, he also loves to collect them and put them near him. He is SO VERY LOVING!! You can’t help but fall in love with him. Foster dad Scott.


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 has not yet figured out the joys of squeaky toys but the resident pack of three Greyhounds and a Whippet mix are showing him the way to even more fun times. Taz is very gentle when accepting treats but he is an excited eater at meal times. The resident cat is still in hiding. Taz’s curiosity has made the cat weary of making friends. 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 Mom & Dad but he may need close supervision with small animals. Foster mom Loalea.


Racing Name: Red I Carmel
Age: 8 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Due to circumstances beyond her control Zenith, and her best buddy Zephyr, were returned to GreySave after living for 5 years in a quiet and very loving home. They were well cared for girls and come with beds, dishes and other dowry items. GreySave plans for them to be adopted together as they are very bonded and dependent on each another. Since Zenith is the more outgoing one she is the first to great any and every one she meets. She is a very lady like and polite girl as she wags her tail at full speed when she meets you. She is a 110% retired racer and loves all the perks of being a pet. Both her and Zephyr have good manners, they do not counter surfer and will wait patiently for there dinner to be served. Most of Zenith's day is spent on a soft bed or basking in the sun on the patio. She was welcomed into our pack of greys with open paws by all. Zenith is a greyt dog with an ingratiating personality who loves attention and will place her head in your lap so she can be the first to get the pets. Foster dad Jay.


Racing Name: Flying Belton
Age: 8 1/2 Sex: F Color: Dark Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: W/N

Zephyr is the more stand offish one of the pair as she is careful regards anything new letting Zenith take the lead on walks as well as meeting new people. Coming from life at the race track she is most comfortable with consistency in her life and a minimum of surprises. Always willing to please, Zephyr accepts and does anything asked of her. We often see her and Zenith laying in beds next to each other and even sharing the same one. Her new human(s) need to set aside time each day to give her a massage or two along with lots of petting. Being true to the breed she enjoys car rides, walks, and most of all long naps. It is a real joy having both of these hounds grace our home as they are just get along kind of greys. However, neither girls show no tolerance when it comes to cats or small happy dogs when they are out and about and have made it clear that they can't live with those kind of creatures. Foster dad Jay.


Racing Name: Bella Run Softly
Age: 7 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/TBD

Blair is very sweet and loves attention. She also loves to sit on the furniture...and when she jumps on the bed, she will bury her face under pillows and go limp like a rag doll so it is nearly impossible to get her off. It is as funny as it is frustrating. She is excellent on the leash but very excitable when it comes to new people and dogs. She wants to jump up to greet everyone. The foster mom is working on Blair's cute but maybe not desirable furniture habits. Blair lived with a small somewhat annoying dog for awhile and basically ignored its antics. Blair has had zero issues with separation anxiety and could be an only dog if her people are around to keep her company when she is not napping. Blaire came to GreySave after she had spent several years on a greyhound farm in Kansas and has had at least 14 pups. She retired from the mommy track in February. Foster mom Melanie


Racing Name: Budz Brynna
Age: 4 1/2 Sex: F Color: White and red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Brinna has been an easy girl to foster. She learned the doggy door on the first day and knows to go outside when she has business to do. She likes everyone she sees, adults as well as children. She's a gentle girl that loves attention but doesn't demand it. My dogs think she's pretty special and she is very happy with them as well, even our tiny dog. She is gentle in the car and on a leash. There's no sign of any separation anxiety or sleep, toy or food aggression with her. She is even gentle with the doggy toys. She is the kind of greyhound that doesn't jump at you or whack you with a hyper type tail but will greet you gently upon your return to her. Brinna is very easy to live with but will be very hard to live without! Foster mom Joyce


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


Racing Name: Volando Dansia
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Dansia is quite a young hound just over 18 months old. She can get energetic quickly but is easily calmed down. She is very playful and loves squeaky toys. She seems to have very sensitive paws and doesn't like walking on gravel or rocky trails. Her walks are slow paced and full of stops for sniffing. She is very smart and picks up skills and new skills quickly. At this point it appears that Dansia would be an excellent only dog as she cares much more for humans than dogs. She is friendly towards other dogs and has been living with two cocker spaniels without incident or much interest either. She politely greets any dogs she meets on walks but seems more interested in owners than anything. Foster mom Hayley


Racing Name: D Ran Dawson
Age: 4 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Dawson is big, handsome, and gentle. He was skeptical of retirement at first and has now settled in to enjoy a quiet home life. He is very curious and likes to watch the world around him from the front porch. He delights in tossing, catching, and chasing stuffy toys. Occasionally, he can get a little possessive of one. Dawson quickly learned to use the dog door and is beginning to master getting in and out of a SUV. He likes rides and watching the scenery go by. He walks well on the leash most of the time. We are working on not pulling when something moving captures his attention. He is not fond of the small dogs he meets and is too interested in cats to live with one. He resides with Greyhounds and gets along well with them. There are times when he prefers his private space on a soft bed. He would do well living with a Greyhound or possibly and only dog if he has people home most of the time. He is making progress in learning to not counter surf. At meal time he has good manners with his housemates and waits his turn. He has a good appetite and will do a happy dance as he sees his food bowl coming his way. Being friendly, he really liked the attention he received at a Meet & Greet. He is happy being with people, is affectionate, but not pushy or clingy. To get ear rubs and neck scratches, Dawson would love to rest his head in the lap of the special folks in his Forever home. Foster mom Susan


Racing Name: WWK Money Pit
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Red fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Gable is a gentle, loving boy who's favorite activity is napping while his foster parents are nearby. Gable naps in the sun on the patio while we're in the garden, on his bed while we're watching TV, and in the office while we're working. He doesn't care where, as long as his people are there and he has a spot to lay his head. Gable has the most beautiful black-rimmed eyes and you can tell by looking into them he is a sensitive and kind soul. Gable has been working on his leash walking skills and does very well on a leash. He is fully house-trained and is very good about waiting to be let out with the other dogs. Gable lives comfortably with two other greyhounds, a shepherd mix, and cats. Gable also enjoyed a trip with his foster mom to a local restaurant for a bit of Al fresco dining and he charmed everyone he encountered. Foster mom Maggie


JetJet -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: JG Jet Rancher
Age: 5 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Jet is a wonderful Grey, he is settling in very well and is enjoying his everyday outings. One of his favorite things to do is to lay in the grass and sunbath! He is learning to play
and likes to carry his toys out side on the grass and pounce on them, roll on them then get up and sprint around the yard a couple of times and then is done. He likes to steal articles of clothing when your doing the laundry and take them outside. He doesn’t damage them he just likes carrying them around. He is doing very well with his potty training. He wines at the door when he needs to go out. He is a only dog and seems to be doing well with this, but I try to set up play dates with other dogs to keep him from getting to lonely. We have a cat and they do well together by way of ignoring one another. He is really taking to his retirement well. He does love his walks though. Long fast walks, and is very good on the leash. He loves riding in the car, and going with you where ever you go. He is a very sensitive boy and doesn’t need to many corrections, and he learns very quickly. Not to much scares him. He may show alertness to load noise but doesn’t run from it. He is good with kids, but his size maybe an issue in him accidentally knocking them over. All in all he is a wonderful companion. Foster mom Teri.


JoyJoy -- Adoption Pending
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


Racing Name: Lady Leslie
Age: 4 1/2 Sex: F Color: Red fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Lady Leslie (her actual track name!) was an unexpected delivery from a farm in Oklahoma where she spent most of the last year or so maybe having some pups. She has been embracing the newest phase of her retirement by getting to know her new roomies: 2 indoor/outdoor cats, another grey & a Chihuahua-terrier mix weighing in at about 15 pounds. Everyone is getting along quite well so far. Leslie is an extremely friendly (and waggy and smiley) dog, but she’s also just a bit timid at the same time. This means that she will be madly grinning & wagging while standing a few feet out of your reach and if you approach, she’ll rush to a bed and flop over for a belly rub. She has discovered the stash of squeaky toys and is just learning to enjoy treats from your hand. She is also walking about 4 miles daily and doesn’t mind any of the urban sights and sounds we encounter such as bikes, cars/buses/trucks, other hikers/dogs, stairs and a freeway overpass. All that being said, the linoleum floor is still a great challenge to her as she doesn’t trust her ability to navigate without skidding. She is fine if guided, but is very reluctant to start across without guidance. The addition of a couple of “islands” (small area rugs) has helped, but she’ll need some ongoing training to get her really confident. Leslie has great manners, is a very kind dog and would possibly work as an only dog. Foster mom Sandy


Racing Name: Mega Slow Down
Age: 4 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Manny is a gorgeous, BIG boy who is very well-behaved. Excellent on leash, calm in the house, gets along well with his grey pack-mate, enjoys affection, never had an accident in the house—what more could anyone want? His one drawback is his hesitancy to get in the car (sedan) but once he’s in, he settles nicely for his ride. Since he’s been fostered so far in an apartment, we are not sure about his desire for a yard—he went to a dog park once and seemed to enjoy it, but not really NEED it. He does well at home on his own so could perhaps be an only. Foster mom Amber


MeganMegan -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Mega On the Move
Age: 4 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Megan is a very sweet and well mannered girl. She is calm with all dogs in the neighborhood, but sometimes she ignores the small ones. She has lots of energy for walks, but is very easy going in the house and can't get enough of her bones. She will whine a bit when getting ready for a walk or when she sees her food coming. She loves to greet all people and seems to do fine as an only pet. She is getting more comfortable and affectionate each day. Foster parents Eli & Libby




OliveOlive -- Adoption Pending
Racing Name: Bella Olive
Age: 3 1/2 Sex: F Color: Dark brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Olive is a delightful, white chested, dark brindle girl. She is really friendly, very affectionate, and just full of the joys of life. Olive adjusted quickly to her foster home. She does well around small dogs and cats and is surprisingly uninterested in bunnies! Olive walks well on the leash, navigates stairs successfully and is perfectly house trained. With a little encouragement she will get into the car and does well on rides. She seems to favor the company of human males over her fellow companions. Olive attends Camp Run a Mutt in Gardena where she has refined her social graces to ensure a successful retirement. At night she likes to sleep near a favorite human and will sometimes waken briefly. She just needs a little reassurance and promptly goes back to sleep. Olive is curious and loves exploring new environments. She delights in stripping blankets of the beds of humans and dragging them to her bed. It is quite comical. Foster home mom Cathy


Racing Name: Barts Sam Spade
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Sam Spade is a pretty active and playful big boy. He is also a master counter cruiser especially now that he has scored a large and perfectly spiced tri-tip steak. He is fine with small dogs but not squirrels. He lives with two females who are littermates and play very well with them. Watching them is entertaining as long as they don't get playing to hard. He is my shadow and is a big love. Right now he is eating all the time but even with the steak he is a bit under weight. He travels well in the car, is fair on a leash but is learning. Foster dad Geoff


Racing Name: Barts Starburst
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Stacy is a curious dog who wants to be in on everything. She will follow you from room to room and likes to be where you are. She's a busy girl but she does enjoy her naps. Stacy rides nicely in the car, looking out the window for a few minutes before settling down. Thankfully she caught onto the house schedule by day 3 as I was a little worried about the 5am wake up call the first two mornings. Stacy discovered the joy of toys quickly and loves the squeekies. She is a bright girl and very affectionate who walks well on leash. Stacy goes to work with me and is very calm when customers come into the office. She seems to enjoy meeting new people. Stacy does want to be the dominant dog in the household but she is adaptable enough to get along very well with our 2 greyhounds, a young female and older male. She's being very good around the cats. Stacy learned quickly from the other dogs to go outside and has not had an accident in the house. She would make a fine companion for an active person who enjoys hiking and walking. Foster mom Linda



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.



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.
