ConnieConnie -- Adopted and living in Riverside
Racing Name: WW's Cost
Age: 3.4 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Connie arrived at the Homecoming a timid and shy girl. It was asked that she be placed in a quiet foster home to give her time to adapt, which is exactly what she got. She rewarded us with a happy dance on her first night and has demonstrated a blossoming of confidence and general cheerful demeanor since then. Connie has very good house manners, especially after accepting the rules of "no counter surfing." She walks perfectly on leash, checking constantly with the human at the end of the leash, as if to be reassured she is doing the right thing. After doing the right thing for over 200 races, she has earned her retirement. She is staying with her foster family, who are very pleased to welcome her with open hearts. Foster mom Samanthe

 

JulieJulie -- Adopted and living in Sunland
Racing Name: JWs Chanel
Age: 1.5 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Julie came to us as a very shy little girl who had to be carried to the car because she froze and didn't want to walk on the leash. She has been progressing nicely but will still need an adopter who is very sensitive to her needs, and will need to be in a home with another dog who is confident. Her puppy age is coming out and she is very entertaining as she pounces on and tosses toys for herself. She loves to run laps around the yard with the other hounds. When we go for walks, she will pounce on a piece of trash as if it were the best toy ever, then drops it a few steps later. She is still learning how to walk calmly on a leash, she bounces around and faces every direction at times, but she is so tiny, she is easy to control. She loves to play with the miniature pinscher in the foster home as well as the bigger dogs. Dirty laundry is another one of her favorite toys, but she doesn't destroy it, just moves it around. She is making lots of progress but will still not let the foster parents catch her if she has been spooked by something, such as a loud noise, deep voice or a stranger in the house. Foster mom Sandy

 

UllaUlla -- Adopted and living in Torrance
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 sometimes when 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. Ulla's does have a desire to stay busy so she probably needs a yard and an active friend that will play with her. Although there are no children in her foster home, Ula loves to meet the neighborhood children when she is out for a walk. Ulla enthusiastically greets each new day at the first sign of dawn and is ready for action. She learns the home 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 Catherine

 

JoyJoy -- Adopted and living in Fountain Valley
Racing Name: JJ's Joan Jett
Age: 4.5 Sex: F Color: Red fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Joy is really a joy to live with. She can be a velcro girl part of the time but then will pick a soft bed in the corner and take a nap. She learned very quickly that she had a desire to get hugs and pets so she thinks that is what life is. She lives with two greyhound girls and does fine with them even though they rule the house. She got to spend a long weekend living with a couple of pushy cats and just thought that was fine too! In general, neither cats or small dogs upset her calm demeanor. She is not fond of the dog door even though the other greys use it and instead wants someone to open the big door for her. She goes to a couple Meet & Greet each month and likes everyone she meets even small children who stick their fingers in her mouth and try to hug her. Joy came off the track with a broken leg and will probably be ready for her forever home in late March but until then she loves the life of being a well loved and pampered companion. Foster mom Kathy

 

HunterHunter -- Adopted and living in Oceanside
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

 

EugeneEugene -- Adopted and living in Bakersfield
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.

 

JaclynJaclyn -- Adopted and living in Oxnard
Racing Name: Jazzy Jaclyn
Age: 3.6 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Look out – here comes Jaclyn! She’ll be so glad to see you she’ll snuggle her head into you and give you a few kisses! She’s a petite little girl who loves to go outside on her own and sunbathe. When inside she is happy to put her head on your lap forever if you’ll just keep petting her! When you run out of pets she will be happy to follow you around or curl up for a nap. Jaclyn walks well on leash and is good on car rides. Her favorite things to do are getting ear scritches, eating, emptying the toy basket and sunbathing. Jaclyn world probably prefer to be an only dogs especially if her adopters are home a lot and spend some quality time with her, help her enjoy retirement and keep the love coming. Foster mom Helen.

 

LadyLady -- Adopted and living in Redondo Beach
Racing Name: Kaias Red Lady
Age: 2.4 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Sweet Lady likes to push her head under your arm and get lots of pets and loving. On car rides she likes to spend some of the time letting the wind blow on her face and then lays down most of the rest of the ride. Lady walks well on the leash. New situations and loud noises can consern her, but once she approaches and checks it out she relaxes and goes back to her relaxed personality. Lady loves toys and will choose her own from the toybox. She tosses them around and eventually deposits them in her ever growing pile on her bed. When not playing she is sleeping or hanging out on one of the beds. She has perfect bathroom manners and uses the dog door to go ouside. Lady would like a forever home with four legged frend for companionship and to play with. Foster mom Wendy.

 

IgluIglu -- Adopted and living in Garden Grove
Racing Name: Mega Iglu
Age: 3 1/2 Sex: M 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. He 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

 

LorettaLoretta -- Adopted and living in Newhall
Racing Name: WW's Star Laredo
Age: 1.6 Sex: F Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Loretta is an energetic and enthusiastic little girl. She loves everything! People, dogs, food, toys, you name it! She has a long walk every morning and still has the energy to follow her foster mom around the house to play "May I eat this?" When her foster mom is at work, she shadows the resident beagle around the yard working hard sniffing out clues, solving the mysteries of the backyard. She is perfectly house trained, but is still hashing out the nuances of the dog door. She wakes very early in the morning, and acts as an alarm to the house that it is time to get up and go for a walk. She walks very well on the leash, and can walk long distances without fatigue. Her favorite toys of the moment are oven mitts. She carries them from the house to the yard, and back to her bed. She loves attention, and may give a little girl bark as a reminder that she could use some tummy rubbing and some ear scratching. Loretta loves dogs and humans of all sizes. She would be better suited to a home where there is activity, another dog, opportunity for lots of exercise and a yard to play in. Foster mom Melanie

 

RocoRoco -- Adopted and living in North Hollywood
Racing Name: Red Rococo
Age: 1.8 Sex: M Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Roco is a confident, gentle greyhound. The only thing that really excites Roco is the sight of the next meal! Roco is a real foodie! He starts prancing and barking when there's food around. Roco spends most days lounging at work with his foster mom who works at a doggy daycare and he isn't bothered at all by the big dogs or the little yappers. Roco's an excellent roacher and loves hanging with his feet in the air. He plays well with toys but needs a sturdy toy, so it doesn't get destroyed. He's is walked regularly and is quickly learning proper leash skills. Roco lives with some cats too but he really can't be bothered with them. He just ignores them all together. Roco is beautiful boy and would make a lovely addition to any home; either as a single dog whose parents were around quite a bit or moving in with another pack.

 

FonzFonz -- Adopted and living in Long Beach
Racing Name: JMB'S Fonz
Age: 2.8 Sex: M Color: Red brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Fonz is a super outgoing, friendly, playful boy who loves hanging out with his foster parents. He likes to meet new people and has discovered chew toys and rawhides (although he isn't a chewer by any means). He uses the doggie door and is great on a leash. He loves to eat and has no problem being messed with while he is eating or sleeping, though he does tend to gulp down his food when he's excited. Fonz would love a playmate who is both young enough to enjoy his excited playful energy and friendly enough to allow for snuggles and the sharing of doggie beds. However, he may be fine as an only dog if his people were not gone long hours. He does get really lonely if left for long periods of time. Fonz travels well in a car and lays right down in the backseat like an angel. He LOVES walking in crowded areas and has a tendency to try to get petted by every stranger walking by. Fonz's adopter will have to be just as friendly if they live in a busy area! His friendly and gentle nature attracts lots of attention. If not watched he can have a tendency to try to jump on people when he's over excited. Fonz is keenly interested in squirrels and small white fluffy critters, although he has never lunged at them. Fonz greets everyone as his new best friend. Foster mom Jillian.

 

 

BartleyBartley -- Adopted and living in Bakersfield
Racing Name: Barts Whosurpal
Age: 1.5 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Bartley is a fast learner, who is already potty trained, with never an accident since arriving to his foster home. He shows no food, toy, or bed aggression. Bartley is a shy boy, who needs confidence building, lots of love and someone to provide life experiences for him so that his curiosity is fulfilled. Bartley is still learning to walk on a leash without pulling and to respond to his name (which can be Bart, Bartie, or Barkley). He resides, very well, with two other greyhounds, one male, another female. He could be an only child or a member of a pack. This young boy is sweet and lovable, who will be a great member of your family. He loves to play with his toys and chew on dental chews. Foster mom Jane

 

MajicMajic -- Adopted and living in Long Beach
Racing Name: Magic Littleways
Age: 3.5 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Majic is a smallish black fun loving Greyhound. He gets along with other dogs and seems to be content being near the back of the pack. He is the sweet submissive type for the most part. Majic is a great retriever and loves to play fetch with tennis balls. (A plus if there is a squeaker inside) He will do best with other large dogs or on his own. He has not yet completely figured out that small dogs are not rabbits. It's all fun and games with him but he may scare the little guys who don't tell him off or hold their ground. At home you will always find Majic laying down in the middle of the room wherever the people are. He is ready to jump in the car on a moments notice or go for a walk. Although Majic lives in an adult household he has frequently mingled with children of all ages. Like most Greyhounds he is a bit more sensitive than a "typical" family dog but the loud noises, commotion, and fast moving little people don't bother him. Foster dad Steve

 

Little BearLittle Bear -- Adopted and living in Encino
Racing Name: WW's Little Bear
Age: 1.9 Sex: F Color: Red Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

With only 12 races in her career, Little Bear still has all the energy and enthusiasm of a puppy. Being puppy-like, everything is new to her and she is learning to be a good dog, but will need her adopter's full attention in order to succeed. She is friendly and sweet, and enjoys throwing toys around then collecting them in the backyard along with the TV remote, a blanket, and reading glasses. She learns quickly and now respects the water bottle. Her foster home doesn't have a doggie door, but she quickly learned to "go" outside. She has never had an accident in the house and even wakes up her foster Mom in the middle of the night if she has to go out. She is quick like a fox so the adopted family will need to keep an eye on her to prevent her from slipping out the door with them. She is staying with four female Greyhounds in her foster home and gets along fine with them. She could be an only dog, however, because she already thinks she is one. We are practicing walking on a leash because her puppy-like enthusiasm sometimes causes her to pull and she’s learning fast. She will make a great companion for an experienced adopter who will have time to walk her and play with her every day until she matures. Foster mom Janet

 

MamboMambo -- Adopted and living in Upland
Racing Name: Johnny's Mambo
Age: 4.2 Sex: M Color: Red brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Mambo is loving the retired life! He happily lounges on any soft bed and a chew treat puts an expression of sheer bliss on his face. He's a gentle sweet natured boy who is now called "Sweet Mambo" by his foster mom. He has patiently tolerated the high energy of his 1 year old greyhound foster brother and was afraid of his non-greyhound foster sister, but now really enjoys her and her calmer style of play. Mambo is a curious boy, so those fantastic ears are often at "full-attention". He's a quick learner and would probably learn how to use a doggy door very easily. Meal times may be his favorite time of the day and he does an amazing imitation of a springbok as he follows his bowl to his feeding place! He's really quite a gentleman and has learned how to wait his turn in the pack order for feeding time. He shows no food or bed aggression and happily makes sure any leftovers in the other doggy bowls don't go to waste! He crates up easily when needed and relaxes there without any problem. Mambo enjoys walks and quickly became good on the leash once he understood what was expected of him. He is getting more and more used to non-greyhounds he sees on his neighborhood walks. He takes to car rides well, but a barrier is helpful because he wants to be right up front with the driver! He is an affectionate boy that loves to be near his foster mom at all times. Tail wags, seeking out affection and love nibbles are now a regular thing. He is learning that some of those love nibbles can hurt and we are correcting that behavior quickly. Playing with toys is sure to follow very soon! Mambo could do well with other dogs, but could also easily be an only dog if his forever family people worked from home, or better yet, could take him to work. Foster mom Shelley

AngelAngel -- Adopted in Corona
Racing Name: Razor Angel
Age: 3 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.

 

SunnySunny -- Adopted and living in Newbury Park
Racing Name: SWG evening sun
Age: 4.3 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Sunny is extremely gentle and well behaved. He is housebroken but needs to go out every few hours so having a dog door would be great. He is fantastic on a leash and enjoys his walks and car rides, although he needs help getting into the car. Sunny is still adjusting to retirement but becoming more comfortable with new sights, sounds and people, everyday. He shares a home with 2 small dogs and does very well with them. He has started to play with toys and enjoys squeaking them and tossing them up into the air. Sunny loves meal time and is a total chow-hound. He enjoys his kibble and a variety of treats but has showed no interest in hard treats like raw hides or bully treats. He will not take a treat from my hand but will smell it and get excited as I place it on the floor or his bed. He has been left home alone several times and he has showed no signs of separation anxiety and although he enjoys his Chihuahua siblings, he may be OK as an only dog if his people are around quite a bit. Foster mom Tania.

 

PaganPagan -- Adopted and living in Irvine
Racing Name: Mega Pagan
Age: 3 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Pagan loves nothing better than a good ear rub. He spends a lot of time off by himself on a nice thick dog bed. He could possibly be an only dog if not left by himself all day. He has little reaction to his four foster sisters and not really interested in toys yet. On a sleep over with a couple of grey guys, he found the boys were fun to play with. He was respectful with RICKY the cat, while he stayed there. Responded to the word NO when the cat walked through. Pagan learned the stairs with his leg in a cast with no problem at all and the doggy door in a day without accidents. He rides well in the car, which was good with trips weekly for cast changes. Pagan has a huge overbite and has a big toothy Greyt smile. The only time he seems to get upset is around small kids. He hides behind me and wants to walk away. Pagan is a great dog that we would love to keep if we could. That smile just melts you heart. Foster mom Jen.

 

TazTaz -- Adopted and living in Bakersfield
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.

 

PoppyPoppy -- Adopted and living in La Cañada Flintridge
Racing Name: Mega Popcorn
Age: 4.1 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: W/N

Yes, lets talk about the perfect retiree! Poppy is that girl and she brings it all in one adorable, floppy-eared package! She is happy, bouncy, kissy, and confident without being pushy or demanding. She will occasionally find something that is a little “scary” but she usually gets over it pretty quickly and is back to her happy-self. She greets everyone as if they had come just to see her—including all the staff at the vet’s office when she had her spay done! Good on a leash, quiet in her ex-pen at night, wonderful with the others in the pack—the only drawback this girl has is that she prefers to use the human door than learn the dog door. I think she can be an only dog, especially if her people are home most of the time because she really doesn’t care if the other dogs are around, but she LOVES interacting with her people. I have never heard a growl or grump from her, even when the other dogs flop onto her bed or get near her food bowl. She is still learning to take treats from my hand but she is improving each day when we do morning “cookies”. Foster mom Deb

 

 

CloudCloud -- Adopted and living in Temescal Valley
Racing Name: JMB's Cloud
Age: 2.2 Sex: M Color: White and brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Cloud is a big, tall, strong, shy boy who loves to play with our resident big, strong not-shy boy. He has a healthy appetite and has no food, toy, sleep or bed aggression and is tolerant of our two resident sassy, loud cats. He learned quickly not to counter-surf. He is still learning about letting his foster mom know when he needs to go out. He has a lot of energy to burn and he is learning how to walk on a leash without pulling. He causes a stir whenever we walk him with his foster brother because he is so big and has such a unique coat. He doesn’t like little dogs, but gets along with larger dogs. He likes to sleep where he can see his foster people. He has been left alone with his foster brother for several hours but would probably not be a good only dog. He and his foster brother love to zoom next to each other to see who can go in the tightest circles but there is never any biting or growling. The ideal situation for Cloud would be a home with another, friendly dog, a nice yard for burning off some energy and a family to cuddle and spoil him. Foster Mom Susan
