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.

About me:
Hello! I'm Tony the Tiger. RRRRRRR. (That's my best play growl.) I broke my leg in three places last night, so I moved from my racing kennel at the track to a foster home. I'll have surgery next week.

There are SO many interesting things to see! They wouldn't let me sit in the front seat on the way to the vet, so I just crammed my head through the gap and lay my head on the driver's shoulder. I like people and wanted to see everything! When I was at the vet, I saw a box with fuzzy dogs in it. They said it was a "tv." I couldn't get the other dogs to notice or play with me, but I liked watching them.

I'm SO happy with my new foster people and can't wait until I can go on adventures with them or my forever family!

Marigold

Born: 2/20/12
Color: Light Fawn
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My new pet name is Marigold. Do you think my nickname should be Mari or Goldie? I'm a pretty golden color, so I'm thinking Goldy.

I was trying to run really fast at the track and broke my leg. I'm having surgery next week to fix it. Meanwhile, I'm hanging out with several other greyhounds. We rest of soft beds and are hand fed sausage and cottage cheese. If I had know pet life was like this, I might have broken my leg a little sooner!

Anyway, I'm really excited about getting my leg fixed and finding a forever home. I think I'll be great pet, so you should take a chance on me.

Jaden

Born: 2/04/13
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Hello! I'm Jaden. I've heard the peoples say I'm a leaner love bug. I do like to lean on people because it seems to prompt them to pet me. Ahhhh.

I'm a pretty happy, chill hound. I was roaching in the back of the car on the way home from surgery to fix my shattered leg. No worries...the blanket was soft, the person transporting me was nice and I had a really good feeling about where I was going.

I have a good feeling about finding a nice forever home too. If you can feel me, come on out and meet me. You can foster me while my leg is healing, then finalize the adoption after I'm medically cleared and neutered (whatever that is.) Time for another nap...resting is good for my leg and dreaming about my forever home makes the time go more quickly.

Ashley

Born: 8/8/12
Color: Dark Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I broke my leg racing, so I had to retire early. I moved in with a nice foster family who has a really handsome black greyhound. Don't tell, but I have a crush on him. He seemed pretty excited to have me move in too. He escorted he all over the house and yard so I could check it out. I saw toys, snacks, kibble and bunch of other stuff.

I had surgery to fix my leg this week, so I'm going to take it easy for awhile. I'll update you on my progress (with my boyfriend and my leg.)

Peanut

Born: 6/18/13
Color: White w/ Fawn
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: With_work
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My new pet name is Peanut, although people keep calling me Princess. What's up with that? I like to keep my crate very clean and tidy, no messes for me. I don't like walking on gravel because I don't want to get my pretty white paws dirty. I think cleanliness and high standards are good traits!

I like cuddling with the people who visit. I don't really understand the whole "get the toy" thing yet. Do they really expect me to go it for them? That seems like something a golden retriever or lab would do, not a graceful greyhound.

If you would like to add a princess greyhound to your life, have your people contact my people. I'll have my no puppies surgery on May 6, so I'll be ready to move in with you soon (if you have a tidy, comfortable house, a soft doggie bed with no pea underneath, and a pretty girl collar.)

Gatsby

Born: 7/17/15
Color: Black with White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: With_work
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
They're calling me Gatsby, I guess because I'm wearing a tuxedo. When I moved into the boarding facility, I found out my brother Rusty was living right next door to me! It's great. We can hang out together. Everybody laughs at our tails. My tail is very curly and Rusty's in bushy and striped. When we're excited our tails stick out of the top of our crates. Everyone seems to get a kick out of that... If it makes the peoples like us more, that's fine by me.

I'll miss Rusty, but I'm really looking forward to moving into my own home. I like people and toys and running around in the yard. Actually, I like everything! If you pick me, I'll make sure to wiggle my tail every day so you can have a good laugh.
