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.

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.

About me:
I'm Keeper and I"m a keeper. Everyone says I'm "striking." I'm not sure what that means, but they say it in a happy voice so I assume it's a good thing. I'm only one year old and love to play with my toy during turnout. I also like getting soft pets. I'm super excited to find my forever family so I can chase toys and get soft pets any time I want!

Sprite

Born: 11/13/11
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm Sprite, a tiny little brindle girl. One of the big dogs bumped me during a race. I went flying up in the air and landed on my shoulder. Earlier today I went into a house for the first time and met a kitty. She smelled funny, but she seemed nice. Now I'm living with four kitties. Holy Cow, I how they're nice!! I'm going to spend the next few weeks resting my shoulder and learning to be a pet. I really like my foster mom, so I think it's going to be great (as long as the kitties don't gang up on me.)

Chili

Born: 5/7/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

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.

About me:
My new name is Savannah. When I moved into the SA GREY kennel, I was assigned my very own toy. I even get to take it with me to my forever and foster homes. Mine is a bunny. I named her Bunny. I LOVE playing with Bunny. We run around the exercise yard together at the speed of light. Every once in awhile I drop her, so I have to go back and grab her. She likes it too. If you'd like to play with Bunny and I, and be our forever people, we're ready and waiting for you...

Boo

Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Boo came to us with a badly broken leg that required surgery. He also spent a long time at VSCOT overcoming complications. Boo was a tail-wagging, face licker, even while he was still undergoing treatment and not feeling his best. Boo is definitely going to be a "people dog" who will want to curl up in your lap on the sofa. He will be ready for adoption as soon as his leg heals.

About me:
SPECIAL NEEDS

I'm Olivia. I'm named after a piglet who has a series of kids books. My foster mom read one of her books to me and I decided I like being her name sake. I'm in a foster home with a bunch of other dogs. They're fine, but I like the people best. I love to be pet and will wag my tail with all my might when my people come home.

I hurt my eye at TGP and now it's infected. The doctor hopes she can fix it, but they aren't sure yet. When they were checking my eye, the found out I have a pretty bad heart murmur, so they're a little worried about that too. I'm looking for someone who will love, love, love me, whether I have one eye or two, for as long as my heart holds out. I promise to love you back.

About me:
My new pet name is Domino. I've never played dominoes before, but I'm a pretty laid back hound, so I might like it. The volunteers keep telling me to "get the toy." I'm not sure what that's all about, but it's nice to spend time with the volunteers.

I've heard something called the holidays is coming. Rumor has it there is turkey and presents and forever people have time off, so you gets lots of walks and cuddles. I totally want in on that, so hopefully someone will pick me soon and take me home!

I'm Sundance, named for my pretty reddish, glowing fur. I'm a happy boy who enjoys sprinting around the exercise with my new toy. (Thanks, Auntie Paula.) I also really like spending time with the people too and can't wait until I have one of my own!

I don't understand the sock thing, but I'm in! If you bring me home I promise to roo as melodically as possible while you sing your holiday songs and to help you clean the dinner dishes. (YUM - hee hee)

Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm Georgia, Savannah's litter mate. I'm a tiny little girl who wouldn't take up much room snuggling on your sofa. Savannah says she's having a great time in foster. She watches TV, naps in the living room, runs around a yard and goes for walks with her people. She even got to go on a play date with Abby, another girl greyhound! I's SO jealous. I know it will be my turn soon, but I can't wait!! I'm having no puppies surgery on November 14, so it won't be long... Start warming up my spot on the sofa.

Downey

Born: 9/06/11
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Downey. I dislocated my shoulder when I was racing other greyhounds. My doctor at VSCOT popped it back into place and gave me a cool looking sling. I gave them kisses in return, but I think they're still going to want money from Jackie's Fund.

The vets at VSCOT are awesome doctors and surgeons, but not the greatest photographers. I'm MUCH cuter than these photos indicate.

I need a quiet place with a soft dog bed to recuperate from my injury. I promise I'll be a good boy if you let me stay with you. Just contact the folks at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.!

Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No

About me:
ZigZag came to us with a badly broken leg that required surgery. ZigZag also had to endure follow up surgeries because the bone protruding through his skin caused an infection, which is turn killed some of the skin surrounding the wound. Despite 14 days in VSCOT and significant pain, ZigZag is an absolute sweetheart. He is now resting comfortably in a foster home, learning the joys of being a pet while her recovers.

Dylan

Born: 8/09/12
Color: Black with White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
Hello again, everyone. I met a bunch of you on FaceBook. Thanks so much for all the great suggestions for my new pet name. It was REALLY hard to pick one. I went with Dylan because Matt Dillon is a famous, fictional Marshal who chases bandits. I LOVE chasing my litter mate Bandit, it works for me. I also prefer the modern spelling. I won't be upset it you spell it differently on my NEW collar. HAHA. See how I just slid that in?

I'm just waiting my turn for a foster home so I can can have my neuter surgery. If you want to foster-to-adopt, we'll just cut out the middle man. I'm ready whenever you are.

About me:
I'm Jackson. I like to play with my new toy and run around the exercise yard. I'm not sure I can trust the peoples yet, but I check them out when they're not looking. Maybe next week I'll be brave enough to walk right up to them to get pets. Buzz and Sprite seem to enjoy it. Wish me luck!

Vixen

Born: 8/16/12
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

About me:
I'm a Vixen. Everyone says I'm tiny and pretty. Maybe instead of retiring I'll be a dog model! I'll be like one of those celebrities who has a long list of things they need before they appear. I'm going to have roasted chicken, squeaky toys and new bling collar on my list of "must haves." On second thought, I think I'd be happier retiring and being a pet. The word on the street is being a pet is a pretty sweet gig. I'd still like the roasted chicken, squeaky toys and bling collar. :)
