Available Retirees


G.R.A.C.E. believes that prospective adopters should have a chance to learn about the greyhounds available. See what they look like, ask questions about particular dogs, and ultimately choose a greyhound who will best suit their circumstances and enrich their lives.

  • We help adopters choose dogs by providing detailed information about each dog and offering suggestions about which dogs would work best in the adopter’s environment.

  • We do not place a dog without the adopters full involvement in the decision-making process.

  • We have potential adopters fill out an online application.  Volunteers will then schedule a home visit with one or two hounds and check references.

Below are our current Available Retirees.  Feel free to pick one, or several, to become your new family pet!  Remember, greyhounds are like potato chips…you can’t have just one.

Hi everyone, my name is Buddy and I didn't formally race because of an injury to my Achilles tendon as a puppy. This doesn't affect me at all as a pet, and I just love to run and play with the other greyhounds in my foster home and snuggle with my foster mom when I relax and take naps.

My ideal home would be with another greyhound to play with and a fenced yard because of my injury and energy level. I can show affection by nibbling along with kisses, so a home with older kids and/or adults would be best. Also, I am a bit reserved at first so a home with someone willing to watch me blossom in their love would be wonderful!

Hi my name is Ava and everyone tells me I'm a pretty girl, but I'm much more than a pretty face - I'm pretty smart too! I've quickly learned to adapt to my new way of life in my foster home. I really want to please and keep "mom" happy. Speaking of happy, when I'm really happy or excited, I love to smile!

I'm very curious and love to look at my reflection and watch TV. I can easily do stairs, slippery floors don't bother me, going for a ride is awesome and I enjoy it when the little humans come to visit. While I'm not fond of "mom" leaving me all alone, I've already learned that she will be back and everything is ok. Of course, I smile when she returns. She says I'm a good girl and do not need a crate. But don't let my happy disposition fool you - I'm also a squeaker-killer. As long as I'm around, I will protect you from all those "evil" squeaky toys!

I am now ready to be adopted. Do you have a place in your home for me?
