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.

  • All families with children ages 3 through 5 years must have a fenced in yard to adopt.  Due to the fact that we cannot conduct in home visits with young children to see the true interaction between the grey and the children we are updating our requirements raising the minimum age to 3.  

  • Please click on the application tab to complete the application.

  •   Please feel free to follow up with us regarding your application at 734-558-4218 if you have not heard from us within 72 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!

Note:  We have a large number of applications and we are working them as fast as we can.  If you submitted an application please be patient….we are getting more greyhounds in and will be working to help you find your fast friend.

UPDATE:  Because of the current conditions in our state and across the country we are not doing on site home visits. We are asking our applicants to send in a video of their home, yard and pets to help us make a determination on approval and working to find a greyhound that will meet your requirements.  Once the video is received we will work to have the foster parents contact the applicants to discuss their fosters.  Videos can be sent to: gracehounds@yahoo.com or 734-558-4218.  Please make sure you include your name on your videos.  

Thank 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.

Hi my name is Beau and I came to Michigan from Kansas. I never made it to racing but was bred to race. I am a little bit timid at first...but am learning new things each and every day. I am super sweet and will make a wonderful addition to a GRACE Family.

I have been making some strides in my foster home. I would do great in a home with just women. I am a little shy of men. I could probably do well if I had a fenced in yard to run and play and if I had another hound to play with. So if you are looking for a handsome, quiet, shy sorta guy, I'm your grey.

I wanted to let everyone know that my Grandma Lexi my mom Skyler and my sister Baby have already been adopted by a GRACE Family...so this truly is a family affair.

Stay tuned for more updates.

I have just been placed in my foster home so that my foster parents can learn more about me and me about learning house rules. Also, I still need to be vetted so it will a bit before I am ready to be adopted.

Initial Evaluation:. Cat SafeFoster Parents: Jennifer H
Hi, my name is Arizona but my foster parents call me Annabelle because they thought that fit my sweet demeanor much better. I came to Michigan from Kansas with my sister Virginia.

I’m a quiet, shy girl who is just starting to learn that people are good and living in a home is actually pretty awesome. While I’m leery of people at first, I really like other dogs! I love helping my foster brother Thor keep the backyard free of rabbits and squirrels. If a human guest arrives, if Thor says they're ok to meet, then I’m right behind him with an inquisitive sniff. I would love a home with a canine brother or sister to continue helping me come out of my shell.

Foster mom is going to think I’m bragging but I really am a very good girl! I only go potty outside, I’m not a counter surfer, I always keep four feet on the floor and I love walking nice on a leash during our evening strolls through the neighborhood. I also don’t mind car rides, and while they’re not my favorite things, I am ok with taking a bath and having my nails trimmed with that buzzy Dremel thing. When my foster parents leave the house, I don’t mind taking a snooze in my crate. The stairs were a little scary at first but I have them mastered now! While I don’t like going outside when it’s raining (I will melt, duh!), loud noises like storms, fireworks or when our roof was replaced, don’t bother me at all!

Some of my favorite things to do is sleeping on my comfy dog bed, chattering when I’m happy, roaching and playing with my stuffy toy, especially “Ducky” that foster mom bought me. Did I mention I love to roach?? Also, I’m a fantastic protector of shoes (foster mom calls me the shoe thief), I love to gently grab your shoes and carry them back to my bed for safe keeping. I promise, I want nothing to do with chewing those stinky things!

I would love to find a furever home where my new Mommy and/or Daddy would be patient and loving so I can continue to come out of my shell and show how fun and goofy I can be. Hopefully that is you?!?!

Stay tuned for updates as my foster mom learns new things about and I learn new stuff too.

Hi my name is PJ Bad Business but you can call me Quincey. I had a pretty good racing career (115 races) and now am getting ready for the next chapeter of my life as a couch potato.

See my foster moms comments below:

This handsome man is settling into Michigan. He has shown how smart he is! He can do stairs both up and down, is cat and small dog safe. Is a bit shy meeting people, but has a very sweet and mellow attitude. He is four years old and has run quite a few races! This morning on his walk ( does well on lead) he spotted a bunny and took the girls and I for a quick Run!! LOL!
His racing name was “PJ Bad Business “.... maybe for a bunny! Such a loving gentleman looking for a home. I will keep you updated on his transition from racer to pet( or as my girl is called.... pampered couch potato;)

I would do better in a home with just women. I am just getting over a muscle pull in my shoulder and still on rest and medication for another week.

Stay tuned for updates as my foster mom learns new things about and I learn new stuff too.

Foster Home Update:
Foster Boo Boo update. (RCK Beadu) Boo Boo likes to go for walks (the dog with the pink leash) and hang out in the yard with Madison and Zoey. She is cat safe, hasn’t chased the cats at all.... she will sniff a kitty but that’s about it!! She’s a bit shy but still adjusting. She likes squeaky toys but only when she is outside. She collects, shoes, and rugs and puts them on the bed. She is pure sweetness! 🐾❤️

Hi my name is Sole and I came to Michigan from Kansas. I was a pretty good racer (98 races) at Southland and than I went back to the farm and had 4 litters of pups (25 total) and now I am getting ready for the next chapter of my life as a friend and companian.

Update from foster Home:
Name of dog: the name she responds to is Soul. You could spell it 'Sole', but that doesn't make much sense without 'Volando' (flying). It's one of the better racing names I've run across. She's flying alone in front of the pack. If I were to keep her, I'd consider making her official name on forms and such 'Lady Soul,' but that isn't happening. Call her Soul when she's awake and she'll lift her head or wag her tail, or both.

When she's not playing or seeking attention, she is low energy, even for a greyhound. She eats slowly, and was very patient when we gave her a bath at the store. She's demonstrates her maternal concerns on occasion with other greyhounds. Right now we have a visitor, a shy young boy (also black color) you may remember named Trip, and Soul is enjoying being a momma again. Her energy is up. I wonder how she"d be with one of her actual pups.

No opportunity to introduce her to small dogs yet, although on walks, she was more interested in rabbits than I'd expect for a "cat-safe" dog. If I had a cat, I'd want her retested. I've yet to walk her alone - always with my two - and she has been a frequent tangler. That will be fine eventually or maybe now on an assertive alone walk.

Hey, Justice here! I had a great racing career (102 races) and I can guarantee you when I wasn’t running I was roaching. That’s my favorite thing to do now in retirement and I can roach pretty much anywhere!

I love stopping and staring at things on walks and wishing I could say hey to all the different kinds of dogs we meet along the way. My foster sister helps remind me we were walking because I could stop and stare all day if you let me. I do walk very nicely right next to you though when I’m not distracted. When we aren’t on a walk I love to stare out the window on squirrel alert. If I see one I will be sure to tell you I want to go out to chase it!

Foster mom thinks I’m a funny girlie because if she is taking too long getting my leash on I’ll do some rooing to tell her to hurry. It’s pretty easy to read me since I do some little talking if I want something and groan if I’m told leave it/no/go lay down (but I do listen and do it anyway).

Foster mom says I’ve got good sea legs in the car and I’m doing great on slick floors. My arch nemesis is glass doors but I’m learning where they are and how to get around them.

I do have a tail boo boo but I don’t mind at all if you put ointment on and wrap it for me. I still don’t understand what toys are for but I am quite playful and love to bow and sniff the smaller neighbor doggos and even race them along the fence. I’ve got the affection thing down too.

Whenever my foster sister is getting love I’ve quickly learned I gotta stick my neck in there too for some attention. I can’t wait to meet my forever family, hopefully one with lots of walkies and some other four legged friends to play with me 😊
