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.

Bentley

Born: July 1, 2009

Status: available

About me:
We think Bentley grew up in New York. He has that unmistakable East Coast attitude. Although Bentley lives happily with several medium to large dogs, he has NO problem telling them exactly what he thinks and going toe-to-toe with any of them. Bentley does have a soft side. He loves his person and wants to be underfoot whenever she is home. If you're looking for a loyal, loving companion, Bentley would be a great choice.

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.

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!

Rory

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

About me:
I'm Rory and I like having a roaring good time. I LOVE my new toy. I especially like to take it over by the dog runs so I can tease Dakota with it as I run past. I would love to find a forever person who wants to take me on car rides and long walks and other adventures. Don't hesitate. The volunteers tell me I'm very handsome and playful, and I'll get snapped up quickly.

Chili

Born: 5/7/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm trying to decide whether my nick name should be Chili Bean or Chili Dog. I have a lot of time to think right now. I broke my leg into seven different pieces during a race at TGP. The surgeons at VSCOT put it back together with plates, screws and wire. (Thanks, Jackie's Fund!)

Does that mean I'm a bionic chili dog now? They have me incarcerated in a crate, allegedly for my own good, so I haven't had an opportunity to see if I have any super powers. My foster mom says in a few weeks my leg will be stronger and I can test for super powers then.

Cats?: Yes

About me:
If you're picturing a ballet dancer, think again. I'm more of a crazy party dancer. I LOVE to jump around and wiggle! I can't wait to dance around in my own living room and back yard!! If you want to be my dance partner, just submit one of the on-line adoption application thingies. My people will call your people.

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...

Colton

Born: Nov. 14, 2009
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: available

About me:
My new name is Colton. The volunteers said I have a new name because I'm starting a new life. I ran over 200 races and I'll be five years old soon. I'm really happy that I get to move into a house soon and be a "pet."

When the volunteers visit, I stay right by their side. I'd much rather lean on them than run around with a toy like that silly Rory dog. I'm hoping the volunteers will get accustomed to me by their side. Then I'll just follow one of them to the car and they won't notice until we're home.

I'm moving to a foster home this Saturday, so you'll see me soon at Meet & Greet events. I think I'd like to live in a nice, quiet home where I can just hang out with my forever person after a nice, refreshing morning walk. I practiced counter surfing at the vet, so I think I'm ready.

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.)

Bandit

Born: 8/09/12
Color: Black & White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: available

About me:
They should have named me Wiley. I had heard the rumors about the land of squeaky toys and pets on demand, so I hatched a plan. When the kennel volunteers came out on Sunday I turned my nose up at food and gave them my best "I'm so pitiful" look. It worked!

Turns out, the rumors were true. Life as a pet is SWEET! I am feeling a little guilty about jumping ahead of the other dogs in the foster home line, so if you could, would you please give them a foster or forever home? They're really nice dogs, just not as cunning as me.

Sammy

Born: June 27, 2009
Color:
Gender: Male
Housed where: Forever
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: pending

About me:
I'm a greyhound. That should be obvious. I think the volunteers were just giving me a hard time at turn out. First, they pointed out my fluffy tail. It's a nice tail! I can't help it if other greyhound tails lack fluffy fur. Next, they laughed at me because I sat down. No one told ME greyhounds don't sit. Oh well, I'm a happy, bouncy boy so I can take the teasing.

I'm super excited to start my life as a pet. We're going to have so much fun together! See you soon...

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.
