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.

Hi my name is Ellen and I am a special girl that is looking for my forever home. I have already had two phases to my life that as a racer and than as a mom to 23+ pups. I am now looking for that special place to call my own.

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.

Date of Birth: 6/4/2017Weight: 55 LBS

Right Ear: 67BLeft Ear: 70553
Initial Evaluation: Cat Test PendingFoster Parents: Renee
Hey, I'm Basket! I'm everybody's friend and I give kisses! Mom says I'm an active, petite youngster who loves to snuggle. She's right! But I'm pretty smart too and try hard to please.

I'm not afraid of slippery floors, but I'm not used to those things called stairs. I like to go for rides and know how to potty on lead.

I don't think I'd like to be alone, so if I could have a dog friend, I'd like that much better. Mom keeps trying to get me to stay off the couch, but I thought we are supposed to be couch potatoes! Mom said there was a storm the other day, but I just looked at her and thought, "What storm?"

I'm trying to learn all those good manners (like no paws on the counter) that mom says I need. I'm getting much better, mom says. There's just so much to see! And do! And eat! And squirrels! So much fun, so little time! I wonder if there's someone who will love a sweet but goofy girl like me?

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.

Stay tune for updates once we make it to Michigan.

Hi my name is Raegan and I am a very young greyhound looking for my forever home. I came from the farm in Kansas where I decided that racing wasn't for me. I love to play with toys and do pretty well in a house. I need to learn more about sharing space.....because I have used to my own apartment....sometimes sharing takes time.

Hi everyone! Meet Dracula! We’re calling him Drake for now because it’s close to his name but he makes me think of a Jocko . He’s a SUPER sweet boy (not turning 2 until November!) and he’s hanging out with the Williams pack and learning lots of new things! So far he’s learned to do stairs really well, is a champ on hard floors and is curious about the kitties but doesn’t want to make a snack out of them.
He LOVES scratchies and mealtime and we’re going to go a wandering in the neighborhood to see how he does on a walk later today. He also likes to nibble on his people when he’s happy (my favorite ) and I swear he smiled at me yesterday ! Whoever gets this big guy is very luck
