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 in a home without the adopters full involvement in the decision-making process.

  • Please click on this link to fill out our adoption or foster application: https://www.gracegreyhounds.org/adoptionfoster-application/  Please feel free to follow up with us regarding your application at 586-924-4927 or 734-558-4218 if you have not heard from us within 48 hours of submitting your application. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting or fostering a greyhound, and we look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Hello my name is Lucky and I am a very special girl that is looking for my forever home.

Hi my name is Lucky and I just arrived to GRACE from Kansas. I had a pretty good racing career (115 races) and than had a litter of pups and am now looking for a place to call my own.

I am a sweet Mamma who takes her retirement very seriously. I have found two beds in my foster home and spend about 90% of my time on them. The other 10% of my time is spent in collecting toys that I tend to hoard. I do like my space so I would do better in a home with older kids and adults. I also love to have my belly rubbed and will reward you with the biggest smile. My foster mom says that I have mastered the stairs, but she thinks I need to learn how to be a lady on the leash - I guess I tend to pull. My foster mom says I do sing with the emergency sirens but off key and a little raspy like Rod Stewart.

Hi my name is Sport and I just arrived to GRACE from Florida. I have never met a toy I didn't want to squeak and love to cool off in the kiddie pool in my yard at my foster home. I am a super lovable handsome guy and give kisses and get along well with the 2 female greyhounds in my foster home. I have learned to be respectful of the cats in my foster home and when I met small dogs at the pet store, everything went great!

Initial Evaluation: Cat Safe
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 Ram and I came to GRACE from Kansas where I flunked out of schooling. I would rather play with my friends than chase the artificial lure. Now I am getting ready for that next phase in my life that as a pampered loving pet.

I am very shy and am working on gaining courage in my foster home. I will want a special family that won't mind working with me to bring out the best I can be. Because I am timid I like to take my time to get to know you. I will never be a meet and greet hound but I may be a hound that thrives in my home surroundings.

If you have a lot of love and patience I will be the grey for you.

Hi my name is Walt and I came to GRACE from Kansas where I flunked out of schooling. I am a very bouncy young grey. I love to play with toys and am learning about what belongs to my foster parents and what belongs to me.

I have mastered the stairs in my foster home and can go up and down without any problems. My foster parents crate me when they leave because I tend to get into a little trouble when left to discover on my own. I would do better in a house...my foster mom thinks I tend to bark too much for an apartment or a condo....she says I never got the word that greyhounds don't bark!!!

I would love someone that is home more and that has a lot of patience. I get excited when I play so a home with older children would probably be best too as well as a fenced in yard to run off some of my puppy energy.

Because I am young I would need someone that has some experience with greys and may even benefit from having another dog in the house.

Hi my name is Kit Kat and I've come from West Virginia after a short racing career. I'm a pretty blonde (fawn) with a dainty Mohawk down the center of my nose. I may have flunked racing but I recently passed my "sit" lesson and my foster mom was very proud of me.

I ride really well in a vehicle, slippery floors don't bother me and I'm not afraid of thunder either. I love little humans but really don't want them to bother me if I'm sleeping so maybe some older ones who know not to do that?

They say I do not like kitties or small dogs, but....I do - I want to chase and catch them! So mom says I can't have any. I still don't understand who that dog is that I keep seeing in a reflection. I bark at it and it won't go away - very strange. Mom also thinks I would make a great "only" dog, which is ok with me because I can have you all to myself. I will give you all my sweet kisses! Won't you be my new mom or dad?
