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.

Born: 1/4/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I hurt both a front and rear leg last week racing, so I was allowed to leave the track and become a pet. I didn't know what that meant, but I'm a happy guy who's pretty much up for anything.

I ended up at a house with a nice lady who pets me and plays with me. She has a BIG back yard too. She says I'll be able to run and play whenever I want as soon as my legs feel better. I'm pretty content just snoozing on a dog bed near her feet for now... I'd love to snooze at your feet and play in your back yard. Just fill out one of those adoption applications thingies. Then we'll both be happy.

Indigo

Born: 7/5/12
Color: Blue (Gray)
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My name is Indigo because I'm blue. Yes, I am one of those rare gray greyhounds. I was admiring a handsome dog this morning in the bathroom, then I realized it was my own reflection. I guess the cast should have been a clue.

Also, I'm blue because I broke my leg racing. I'm having surgery on Tuesday to fix it. I'm told it's going to cost over $4,000, so send your spare change to SA GREY's Jackie's Fund!

I'm hanging out at a house with some other dogs until Tuesday. The pet life seems to be a good gig. I'm really looking forward to being able to run around the house and yard, and enjoy my new found freedom! I'm be ready to be your forever pet as soon as my leg is healed.

Gender: Female

Cats?: Yes

About me:
I arrived at the SA GREYS kennel yesterday. The first thing they told me was I just missed my litter mate Sparkle. I'm happy she was adopted, but I would have loved to see her again.

I'm still getting accustomed to the new kennel routine. Today during exercise time I just walked from one volunteer to the next to test their petting and back rub methods. They all seemed nice and did a good job petting me, so I guess I'll try that again tomorrow.

If anyone is in touch with Sparkle, tell her to call me. I'd like to hear more about these foster and forever homes the other dogs are talking about. Better yet, maybe one of you could give me a tour or let me move in. I think I'd prefer a nice quiet home to the noisy kennel. Those non-greyhounds are real talkers...

Carly

Born: 8/16/12
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I hurt my rear end when I was running. It's not funny! It still hurts! I'm not allowed to run and play, so the volunteers put a leash thingy on me and walk me around the exercise yard. I think they're okay, but I'm reserving judgment for now.

One lady sat with me in my dog run today, talked quietly to me and pet my fur. I liked that and felt good enough to eat my breakfast. I hope my forever home has a person like her.

Marty

Born: 5/17/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
They should have named me Tigger!! I'm a red and black striped, bouncy, pouncy, ball of fur and love. It's SO much fun to run around the exercise yard, get back rubs from the volunteers, or just hang out and enjoy the beautiful morning. I've heard foster and forever homes are even better. I'm SO excited. It's hard not to jump around like my bottom is made out of springs.... (Speaking of springs, if you would like to spring me from the kennel, I'm totally up for a road trip.)

Demi

Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Hello! I'm Demi. I'm told I'm a super cute, little brindle girl. We don't have mirrors so I'm taking the volunteers' word for it. This morning I was assigned my very own toy. I don't have to share it with the other dogs and I get to take it with me to my foster and forever homes. Every time I look at it now, hanging on my dog run (the toy, not me), I get excited about what happens next! If you're looking for a super sweet foster or forever dog, pick ME!! If you visit bring cookies. I like cookies. A lot.
