SaschaSascha -- Adopted and living in Irvine
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


LluviaLluvia -- Adopted and living in Pasadena
Racing Name: Mega Lluvia
Age: 3.9 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Lluvia is a sweet, smart, affectionate, little girl. At almost four, she doesn’t exhibit any puppy “foolishness” like chewing things she shouldn’t or jumping on people or dogs. She eats well and will take treats from your hand after she feels comfortable with you. Lluvia is very food driven and has tried to take things off the counter or a plate. However, since she is quite sensitive and wants to please, after only one correction, she knows not to put her paws up on the counter. She sometimes needs to be reminded that your food is yours and her food is hers. She hasn’t had an accident in the house and quickly learned that the yard is where she should go to the bathroom. We don’t have a doggie door, and she does not cry or whine to be let out, so you will need to pay attention to her signals of pacing, going to the door and standing next to it when she needs to go. She’s on the shy side, so new people, loud noises and unfamiliar things make her a little nervous. She loves going for walks and is a dream on a leash – no pulling or crossing over. Small critters are highly interesting for her, but redirection and moving her along breaks that fascination. Car rides are a bit scary for her, but after more experience, I believe she’ll ride like a champ. Lluvia enjoys the company of other dogs and would do best with another canine buddy. However, she prefers to be with her human most of all and should not be left without company for more than a few hours, as she can be vocal. Foster mom Lisa



ConnieConnie -- Adopted and living in Glendale
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


MavMav -- Adopted and living in Dana Point
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 -- Adopted and living in Alhambra
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 -- Adopted and living in La Habra
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


MariaMaria -- Adopted and living in Chatsworth
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


BevBev -- Adopted and living in Rancho Cucamonga
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 -- Adopted and living in Pasadena
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 -- Adopted and living in Los Alamitos
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.


CleoCleo -- Adopted and living in Arcadia
Racing Name: WW's Clear Cut
Age: 2 Sex: M Color: Dark Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Cleo is a very relaxed and easy going boy for being under 2 years old. He likes to play with laundry and paper bags and is slowly learning that stuffed squeaky toys are what he should be playing with. He definitely follows the direction of the other greyhounds in the home and would do best in a home with another dog. He loves going for walks and exploring the environment and walks nicely on a leash. He is tall but is very gentle and will just stand in front of you waiting to receive some hugs and attention. He is very good with the small dog in the foster home, playing with him for a bit, but backing off when the little one gets cranky. Foster mom Sandy


LindaLinda/Sadie -- Adopted and living in Moorpark
Racing Name:
Kh Linda
Age: 6 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Linda is a sweet and energetic girl with a big personality. She is inquisitive, bold, and intelligent. After watching her foster brother bound up a flight of stairs she quickly gave it a go and succeeded on the first try. She has adapted quickly to her new life and has picked up the daily routine very well. Linda is food motivated and will be easy to train. She is active and could be a good partner for agility training or outdoor activities. She walks well on the leash and does well with unknown dogs. Linda gets along well with her foster greyhound siblings be it piled in the car, chasing each other around the yard, or around the house. She also seems content spending time on her own and could possibly live as the only dog in her new home.



MilanMilan -- Adopted and living in Anaheim
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. At first she was overwhelmed by life off the track and was very shy and worried about meeting new people – 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 family and she is getting braver about meeting other people. She likes to play with toys, especially emptying the toy box and collecting all the toys in her bed. She loves her walks and has good leash manners, although she still does start to bounce and turn toward home when she gets scared of something. Miley behaves beautifully in the house – she learns quickly from gentle corrections, and has never had an accident in the house. She loves mealtime and thinks naps are fantastic. She lives peaceably with three cats and gets along fine with the tiny dogs who come over to visit. She enjoys the company of her three greyhound foster siblings, but is not overly dependent on them. Miley will need a home with people willing to continue to help her build confidence in the outside world, but she is already blossoming into a fun-loving, sweet, and lively companion. Foster Mom MK.


CowboyCowboy -- Adopted and living in Whittier
Racing Name: T's Flying Cowboy
Age: 2 3/4 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Cowboy is smallish for a male, but he is frisky and gorgeous! He LOVES to play, and if neither of his foster brothers is interested, he will play with stuffed toys by himself, throwing them into the air and then pouncing wildly on them. He is friendly with everyone, and greets visitors with a wagging tail, and sometimes a kiss or two. Cowboy is very food motivated, loves treats, and goes absolutely nuts when he knows dinner is being prepared. He eats quickly and at first gave his brothers a warning growl if they came near, but his confidence has increased to where he has not done that in weeks. We are still working with the squirt bottle to remind him that peoples plates are not an invitation to help himself, and he is definitely improving ! He sleeps well at night, walks beautifully on a leash, and rides very well in the car. Perhaps because of his youth, Cowboy is super curious! In a new environment, he has to smell and investigate every single thing! Once that is done, he quietly lays down, usually inverted! Of all the fosters I have had, he cockroaches more than any - guess he likes to cool off his tummy during this hot weather. Cowboy definitely needs the company of another dog, preferably a grey, in his forever home. Of his two foster brothers, the grey is the one he follows around, and he is not happy if he is gone, even though the other non-grey is there. He loves to cuddle , can be petted for hours, and unlike his brother, can curl into a little ball next to you, with his head on your knee. Foster mom Judy


FarleyFarley -- Adopted and living in Whittier
Racing Name: Volando Wayfarer
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Farley is a happy, loving grey! He follows his foster mom around and has a delightful roaching nap wherever his people happen to be hanging out. He loves his stuffy toys but beware Farley is a puppy and he will steal your things and add them to his toy pile! His foster mom quickly learned to hide remotes and electronic cords from this adorable thief! Farley is a bit nervous when out on leash and is learning to walk on a harness but he loves his walks and does much better out walking when he has the comfort of another, older, more secure dog by his side. Farley required no real house training as he has never even attempted to potty in the house. He's a very smart boy and just follows the lead of the older greys who are let out every few hours. Farley loves to meet new people and is totally comfortable living is a house full of cats. Farley is sensitive to correction and a simple 'no' is all he needs to redirect his behavior. Farley is an excellent eater and sleeper. Nothing unusual about those things in a grey! Farley's a special boy! Foster mom Maggie.


StellaStella -- Adopted and living in Altadena
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


ArtieArty -- Adopted and living in Sherman Oaks
Racing Name: Volando Attire
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Arty is an extremely sweet & smart fellow. Within a few hours of landing in his new retirement digs, he was using the doggy door, navigating stairs & slick floors & generally acting like he had always been a dog of leisure. He has the tiniest bit of hesitation when being approached directly from the front because he is a very sensitive guy, but once he knows you are going to be rubbing his face or ears, he is very eager to reach up to meet your hand. He has been living with a motley crew of housemates including a girl greyhound, a very active “chihauhaurrier” (who weighs about 15 pounds), 2 old cats & a 6 month old kitten (all of whom are indoor/outdoor kitties). He has absolutely no problem with dogs of any size or with the older cats, but is a tad interested in the kitten…probably because he kind of looks & acts like a squeaky toy. That being said, Arty is quick to break off if verbally reprimanded or if the kitten stands his ground. With more time & training, it’s my belief that he would become very steady around the little ones. He has been trail walking an average of 3.5 miles daily & has been meeting all kinds of dogs, people, vehicles & assorted urban stuff. He is a little worried if something is big & noisy (a trash truck) but is quickly reassured & will go on his way. His biggest walking fault is that his leash skills are, shall we say, limited, but he is learning & improving quickly & easily jumps in & out of the car with little prompting. He has discovered the joy of the toy pile & has developed the habit of trotting around with a toy in his mouth much of the time. He does think they belong to HIM however, so he’ll need a bit of work to keep him becoming too possessive. Since he is sensitive & smart, this shouldn’t be an issue. Arty is a wonderful, gentle, smart soul who has a rough edge or two which will definitely benefit with training & guidance & more time as a couch potato. He will make a great addition to a home with firm but gentle folks. Foster mom Sandy


PebblesPebbles -- Adopted and living in Anaheim
Racing Name: WW's Fastrackpebble
Age: 3 1/2 Sex: F Color: White and brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Pebbles is just a super greyhound girl. Though she is only 3.5 she raced 114 times starting in Florida before moving to Caliente. She is a very pretty girl with a small body and a nice personality. From the moment she walked into her foster home she has acted like she was always there. She uses the dog door with ease, loves to ride in the car and to play with the other greyhounds in the family. Beside two greyhound boys, her house mates also include as very small dog and some grandchildren that come to visit. She just seems to love everyone. She plays with the dog toys and loves to rest on any soft surface. Sometimes she has to just prove she is a girl by giving the male greys a bit of lip or standing over them. They just ignore her as they should. She likes to greet her foster mom after she has been out with a little bit of greyhound talk!


PlayerPlayer -- Adopted and living in Orange
Racing Name: Mega Player
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Player is a loving, adventurous, and silly boy. He loves a good adventure whether it be a simple walk around the block or a car trip to the pet store. He is beginning to understand toys and playing and has a favorite stuffed bear he takes to bed every night. He walks well on a leash and is housebroken. He is fostered as an only dog and does well when left by himself. He loves to eat and loves a Kong with some yummy treats inside. He bonded very quickly to his foster parents and loves following them around the house to see what they’re up to. He is making progress with cats but still needs work. He responds well to “no” but doesn’t know much else in the way of commands yet. He does well around strangers and new places but is just as comfortable at home on his pillow napping. Foster dad Josh.


RitaRita -- Adopted and living in Upland
Racing Name: Boc's Realityhit
Age: 4 1/2 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

Rita is a beautiful, affectionate brindle girl with a cute bashful side. She blends very well with her two foster brothers but she would be great as an only dog and is more alpha when around other females. She walks very well in a pack and is almost perfect when walking alone. She rides well in the car and has learned to jump in the back of the SUV. She is well behaved when left alone and is very excited to see you when you return. She does not have a doggie door but has never had an accident in the house and walks to the door when she needs to go. She is very well behaved at home. This is a great girl! Foster dad Scott.


FireflyFirefly -- Adopted and living in Oak Park
Racing Name: Rovers Firefly
Age: 5 1/2 Sex: F Color: Red Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/N

Firefly is a sweet, smart, affectionate Low key little girl. Gives deference to older, 11 yr. old male greyhound "brother." Learning quickly to ride in the car without scratching windows, standing up the entire ride. Still needs help jumping up into the car. Very interested in new surroundings. learning to play with a ball. Not sure about squeaky toys, yet. Great on walks, doesn't pull usually. Seems ok with small dogs and small creatures. No real experience with cats. Potty trained herself from day one. Very loving!! Gives lots of kisses at appropriate times. Loves to eat. No loose stools. Really seems to love her new "freedom." Foster dad Rod


FrankieFrankie -- Adopted and living in Clovis
Racing Name: Financial Impact
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Light Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Frankie is a very handsome boy with his uniquely colored brindle coat. He rides extremely well in a car, settling down quickly into a sitting or lying position. He is a timid boy but will follow the lead of his foster siblings. He is beginning to approach us for some love and interaction, and I believe will eventually build his self-confidence. Frankie is not food possessive, loves to play with our other greys, likes stuffed animals, and has never had an accident in our house. He does use the doggie door. Because of Frankie’s shyness, I recommend he enters a home with other greyhounds. Foster mom Carolyn


AmyAmy -- Adopted and living in Huntington Beach
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


BeamerBeamer -- -- Adopted and living in Anaheim Hills
Racing Name: Xtrem Beatrice
Age: 2 3/4 Sex: M Color: Black
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Beamer is everything you expect a greyhound to be: affectionate, happy and confident. He enjoys his playtime with the others in his foster home, but can also go off by himself and just relax. Never a counter-surfer, gently takes treats from your hand and waits his turn. He can be quite a goofy guy—tossing his toys in the air and pouncing on them when they land. He is an excellent passenger in the car—usually just lies down and enjoys the trip. Still a little “wandering” on the leash, but he is learning and getting better all the time. He could probably be okay as an only but will enjoy having a companion also.


CocoCoco -- Adopted and living in La Verne
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



EbonBen -- Adopted and living in Riverside
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.


MissouriMissouri -- Adopted and living in Ontario
Racing Name:
Missouri Mauler
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: White with ticking
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/W

GreySave’s phone rings and it’s a call from the race track in Tucson. The “Missouri Mauler” has broken his leg doing what these dogs love doing best – running. So off go his new foster parents on a mad dash through the desert to pick him up. A drop off at the orthopedic vet for surgery the next day follows. The fun begins when he goes home and begins the magic transformation into a loving pet. This hound gives any human he meets 110% love. Just be careful of his over-active, spring-loaded happy tail. Lots of weekly trips to the Vet means he is the first to lie down in the car. It was no time at all before he had mastered tile floors, mirrors, and the dog door. One of the other greyhounds in the home has taught him the finer points of letting all of us know when someone comes to visit. In fact, for a small male he has a very big and deep bark. He has now moved on to toys.  Emptying the basket one by one, he deposits them around the house, squeaking them as he goes.


OchoOcho -- Adopted and living in Santa Clarita
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


RustyRusty -- Adopted and living in Victorville
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.


HerculesHercules -- Adopted and living at Lake Sherwood
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


MandiMandi -- Adopted and living in La Palma
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.


HollyHolly -- Adopted and living in Pasadena
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.


KingsleyKingsley -- Adopted and living in Long Beach
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 -- Adopted and living in Ontario
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 -- Adopted and living in Long Beach
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


BoltonBolton -- Adopted and living in Eagle Rock
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


TonyaTonya -- Adopted and living in Glendale
Racing Name: Mega Tolerate
Age: 1 1/2 Sex: F Color: Fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Tonya is a youthful charmer who elicits "oohs & aahs" wherever she meets people. This very social girl has a lot of confidence and takes well to correction when needed. Learning the routine of living in retirement came very quickly to her. The cats made her curious, but a "hiss" was all it took to get her to be respectful. She walks well on leash and is not bothered by anything she meets along the way. She rides well in the car and often falls asleep during the ride. Tonya will easily curl up with her housemates, but often prefers a place where she can be near her foster mom. She will do well as an only dog, provided she is not left alone for long periods. Foster mom Samanthe.


DuncanDuncan -- Adopted and living in Woodland Hills
Racing Name: WW's Duncan
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: M Color: Black brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

For being as young as he is, Duncan is amazingly calm and easygoing. He loves new people, the more the merrier, no matter what their age, and greets everyone with a wagging tail. He's always up for a walk, but waits quietly to get his leash on, and after the first few yards, walks sedately by your side with no reminders. His roman nose and different colored eyes make him an unusual looking greyhound, and though he had a mark on his nose from where the muzzle rubbed (greyhounds aren't supposed to have noses shaped like that.!:) , it is healing nicely, and barely noticeable. Duncan rides well in the car, and lays down after the first 10 minutes of looking out of the window with curiosity. He is very food driven, eats well, and will come instantly our of a sound sleep at the sound of a refrigerator opening. He would love to help you finish your dinner, but responds well to a squirt bottle reminder. He seems to do wellith all kinds of people and dogs. At Meet and Greets he is only mildly interested in the dogs passing by, and fits in well with whatever assortment of greys are in the x pen. I think Duncan would be a great addtion to any family, but could not be an only dog unless his people were around most of the time. Even with the other dogs asleep in the living room, he still follows his foster mom from room to room where ever she goes. I would think his ideal forever home would be one with other greys to hang out with, and lots of pets and snuggles from his family. He is really a great dog!! Foster mom Judy


ElannaElanna -- Adopted and living in Los Angeles
Racing Name: Bella Elegant
Age: 2 1/2 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Elanna is a graceful and beautiful princess. She started off quite shy but is evolving nicely and will continue to do so in her new home. She definitely follows the lead when the other hounds come up for attention. She has jumped up into the bed to snuggle with us on occasion. She can be afraid of men initially but has warmed up to the foster dad over time. She walks very nicely on a leash, but is startled by loud noises, so the adopters need to be extra careful when walking her. We walk her in a harness and collar coupled together. She is also startled by quick movements or loud voices or noises in the house, but will usually come back to check it out after a minute or so. She does love to play with her toys and prances around with them many times throughout the day. She could care less about cats. Foster mom Sandy


OnyxOnyx -- Adopted and living in Chino Hills
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.


ScarlettScarlett/Esther -- Adopted and living in Palmdale
Racing Name: Esther Presley
Age: 6 Sex: F Color: Light fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/TBD

Scarlett is a happy, adorable girl who smiles on command and has no problem asking for attention. She can be quite bouncy and busy if you rev her up but then she will lie down next to you while you work in the office. She absolutely loves playing with two of her pack mates and occasionally will toss a toy around the house or yard. She started out whining when one of us would leave the house, but that seems to be improving significantly now. She has been a little reticent about approaching visitors in the foster home but adapted to us in just a couple of hours, so I don’t think it will take her long to settle into her new home. Ideally, there would be at least one other dog there for company if her owners work. She completely ignored a visiting pug and we think she previously lived with a puggle and a Boxer mix. Foster mom Deb


ZamoraZamora -- Adopted and living in Sylmar

Age: 3 Sex: F Color: White and brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Zamora is a white, brindle spotted beauty who is very loving and a bit shy at times. She's happy to see you come home and loves meal time! She loves toys and gets along great with her two foster brothers. Zamora is not alpha and is somewhat sensitive to being corrected for her mistakes but learns quickly. She loves walks and walks very well in the pack and rides well in the car. We believe she would be great for a first time Greyhound owner and would be fine being the only dog. We believe she would be great for a first time Greyhound owner and would be fine being the only dog. You can't help but loving her. Foster dad Rich


DannyDanny -- Adopted and living in Woodland Hills
Racing Name: WW’s Dauntless
Age: 2 Sex: M Color: Light fawn
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Danny is an energetic, happy hound. He loves meeting new people and gets very excited when guests arrive. Danny is such a character too! He flops on the ground, rolls on his back, and wiggles his feet in the air while waiting for belly rubs and ear scratches. He's so much fun to engage. He loves stuffy toys and cookies too. Danny is house-trained and has never had an accident in the house. We don't have a doggie door, so we let him out every few hours. He sleeps through the night, and much like the typical greyhound, is an excellent napper. Danny is excellent on a leash and enjoys his walks. Danny came to GreySave with dislocated toes in one foot, so his walks are still a bit short and he doesn't have a tremendous amount of stamina yet. Danny lives with two senior greyhounds, a shepherd mix, and cats. He gets along well with everyone. Danny would make an excellent companion for someone who has time to engage him during his quick bursts of energy with a romp in the yard or regular walks. Foster mom Maggie


BlueBlue -- Adopted and living in Paso Robles
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.


PollyPolly -- Adopted and living in Whittier
Racing Name: Jw´s Power Boat
Age: 2 Sex: F Color: Red
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Polly is a wonderful dog. She has integrated well into the household. She still learning her name is Polly but understand that the more generic commands of "uh uh, no, and stay" should be obeyed. Interestingly she tries to avoid the cats that are walking around the house. She actually just looks away from them. She may want to play with them but they don't share that desire. She eats well and has a schedule for outside drains and dumps. Has had only one accident. Has free rein in the house at times but we are always on guard when the freedom includes the cats. She is walked twice a day, morning and evening and is getting used to her environments. She has heart! She knows we are her family and has especially bonded to her dad. Polly greets her family with smiles and a wagging tag. She loves her bed and toys. Though she is young but it seems like she has always been with us. Foster mom Briana


QueenieQueenie -- Adopted and living in Irvine

Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Queenie is adjusting to retirement from the track very nicely. She discovered toys the very first evening! Queenie just turned three years old and has a very soft, black coat with a white chest and white toes. She gets along very well with the 2 resident greyhounds and 2 small dogs. Curious about the cats, but very respectful. She walks nicely on leash and enjoys being out and about. She likes getting in the car and going places. Her house manners are coming along nicely and she has adjusted quickly to the house routine. She has had no accidents in the house. She's a bright girl and likes to be where you are. Foster mom Linda


SuzanneSuzanne -- Adopted and living in Upland
Racing Name: Suzanne Somers
Age: 5 Sex: F Color: Brindle
Small dog/cat tolerant: Y/Y

Suzanne is a very sweet but timid girl. She likes to lick you as a special greeting when she gets excited to see you and also if she's feeling brave. She is learning how retirement feels and I think she is enjoying it. She has Tigger, a sweet greyhound and recent retiree, teaching her the things that pets need to know. He taught her the stairs and the going out to potty places in our yard. We have had no accidents with her. She has a good appetite. But not too interested in toys yet. She perks up when Tigger squeaks a toy but she has not played yet. She is still looking for her safe zone and wants to be in an x pen or crate for comfort. She does enjoy the cool floor to lay on when she is feeling calm. She walks well on a leash and enjoys going for walks. She is teaching Tigger manners in walking. She will probably be ok as a only dog if her parents are not gone a lot. She has been a good girl to foster for our first foster experience. Foster mom Holly
