Available Hounds

for me-2

Thinking about adopting a greyhound? You've come to the right place. 

Most of our available dogs come from the dog track in South Tucson. Although some retired race dogs are from Mexico. It's not important where they come from. What is important is where they go. Our job is to find these deserving dogs forever homes.

The dogs on this page are either at our kennel or in foster homes. Before any dog can be adopted they have to be spayed or neutered and cat tested for living in homes with cats. Dogs spend a few weeks or more in a foster home learning the ropes of home living and interacting with family members.

You can start by completing an adoption application and meeting the hounds at Meet & Greets around town (link to calendar). Do your research to determine if a greyhound is the right pet for you/your family.

If you're not sure a greyhound is right for you, consider becoming a foster home (foster application link) to find out.

Tripp

Born: June 17, 2010
Color:
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Tripp, Rory's brother. Everyone expects Rory and I to be just alike, but we're not. He's an extrovert and I'm more of an introvert. He loves to run around the yard and play with his toy. I prefer to lean on the volunteers and get pets.

Kennel Update: Tripp is now running around the exercise pen and seeking attention from the volunteers. He is still a little shy, but has come a long way. He's a big boy - 80 pounds - but is very gentle and mellow (when he isn't sprinting.)

Pepper

Born: 9/9/11
Color: White with Brindle Patches
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
You can call me Pepper. I tore a muscle when I was running as fast as I could. That night my muscle bled a lot. My leg was so full of blood it broke open. You should have seen my kennel person's face when she walked in the next morning! I didn't mean to scare everyone. She took me to straight to VSCOT and they fixed me up.

Because I was injured, I moved directly into a foster home. I have a greyhound foster brother who seems nice, but I was hoping to meet Chili. The people at VSCOT and the other greyhound girls seem to think he's pretty special. I was thinkin' Chili and Pepper seem to go together. Maybe someone will adopt both of us - we'd be a cute pair!

Toby

Born: October 1, 2012
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm a greyhound mix. Really, I am. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

My previous owner left me at a shelter in Southern Arizona. Apparently, an SA GREY supporter saw my picture and convinced SA GREYS to come get me before it was too late. I'm not sure what that means and I'm not sure I want to know.

I'm still learning to trust people. I like to lean on them if they talk softly and pet me just right. When I went to Aunt Cindy's house for "cat testing," I got to lie on the sofa and cuddle. I really liked that. I'm only 40 pounds, so I don't take up as much room as a real greyhound. Oops -- not that I'm not a real greyhound...

Mango

Born: May 11, 2010
Color: White with Red Patches
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm happy to have joined the SA GREY family, but I'm even happier to be out of their kennel. The non-greyhounds talk constantly and it stressed me out. I guess the volunteers noticed I was shaking all the time and let me go to the front of the foster home line.

I like my new foster mom and my greyhound foster brother, Dino. In one of my pictures, I'm wearing my new harness donated to SA GREYS. Thanks Auntie Paula!! I'll let you know how I'm doing in foster once I'm settled.

Jet

Born: Jan 18, 2011
Color: Black w/ White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
They picked the right name for me! I am SO fast. You should see me run around the exercise yard with my toy! I've included a couple photos so you can get the idea...

I can't wait to find my forever person and start my life as a pet. I've heard I'll get to go for walks and car rides, and to play with squeaky toys whenever I want. I'm so excited my toes are wiggling!

I'll have my no-puppies surgery and be ready to go home with you before Halloween, so file your adoption application soon! The volunteer told me she has a picture of me in which I look like the Headless Horseman. She promises to post it on the SA GREYS FaceBook page before Halloween, so watch for it! I'm very cute, if I do say so myself.
