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 5 and younger must have a fenced in yard to adopt.

  • 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 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!

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.

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.

Hello my name is Tina and I am a sweet girl that is looking for my forever home.

I am happy an fun loving grey who loves to cuddle and be loved.

 Tina Maze
Nickname: Tina
Sex: FemaleColor: Red Fawn
Date of Birth: 8/4/2015Weight: 58 LBS
Sire: Barcelona BossDam: Fuzzys Kim Novak
Right Ear: 85HLeft Ear: 67024
Initial Evaluation: No Cats or Small DogsFoster Parents: Renee L
Hi, my name is Tina! When I first came from Florida to Michigan, it was a bit chilly. I'm a classic retired racer - affectionate and sweet. I love to go for rides, can potty on lead, not afraid of slippery floors, absolutely love those little humans, not afraid of thunder or firework noise. I can do the 6 steps on the back porch here, but I've never tried a full flight of stairs.

I do have a fairly high prey drive, so I would do best in a home with no cats or small animals, and I should probably have another dog friend closer to my size. I could probably be an only dog if my people were not gone all day. A girl gets lonely, ya know?

I like to roach and lay like a frog - mom says I'm unique that way. I have good house manners but you might want to keep any steaks out of my reach (just ask my mom)! I'm happy laying at your feet or in your lap. I have oodles of ways to show you just how much I can love you.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Initial Evaluation: Cat SafeFoster Parents: Jim & Marcia Krey
Hi my name is Dino and I came to GRACE with my brother Dracula. I have been placed in my new foster home to learn confidence. I am really shy and need lots of leash work....right now I act like a mule...but my foster mom has lots of patience and will work me through it.

I am a sweet boy that does like kids and tested cat safe. I do great with the other greys in my foster home. I have not had any accidents in the house and go out with the others but do sometimes hang back when coming in. I will need a fenced in yard and a home with another dog.

I will accept people on my terms. I am a sweet boy that will need time to adjust to a new home...so anyone interested in me will need patience and help me celebrate little advances. I may not do well in a home with small children because I tend to run fast when I face new challenges and might knock them over....not meaning too but I am a big boy.

I have discovered the toys in my foster home and love to play. I also like to chew on bones and super chewer toys. I have no food aggression and have a healthy hardy appetite.

Initial Evaluation: Cat CorrectableFoster Parents: Gene & Rosanne
My name is Belle, and even though "Weepin" is in my full name, I'm a very happy-go-lucky kinda gal. I'm what they call a "smiler" and will smile for you when I'm happy or excited! I smile, roach and roo (a type of greyhound singing)!

I'm much more laid back than my sister, Basket, who has already been adopted. I really love to go for rides and play with squeaky toys. I'm not afraid of slippery floors, and I'm not afraid of thunder either.

I wasn't thrilled with walking on lead when mom first got me, but now I've learned to walk nicely with other dogs or by myself. I do hope you will take me for walks so I can practice more. I do like walks - there's so much to see and smell. A lot of stairs might be challenging for me, but I'll try.

Cats are curious things, and if you have one that will tell me who's boss, I'll say, "Okay, you're the boss!" Oh, and I hope you don't mind my making myself comfortable on the couch because....I will!

I would do okay as an only grey. I like to play and am really sweet but I would probably do better in a home with no children.
