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.

Sammy

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

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...

Picasso

Born: Sept 20, 2010
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I am Picasso and I am an artist. I don't work in oils or watercolors. My medium is monkey business. When I moved into the SA GREYS kennel yesterday, my new best friend was hanging from my door waiting for me. He's a big pink monkey and his name is Barry.

This morning the volunteers let us out to play together. We had a lot of fun running around, then I stopped to get some nice pets and scratches. I can't wait until Barry and I move into our foster and forever homes, when we can run around and play anytime we want. Do you have room in your house and your heart for us?

Madison

Born: March 2, 2010
Color: White with Brindle Patches
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My name is Madison. I'm enjoying my summer vacation at the SA GREY kennel so far. The other dogs and the volunteers seem nice. They keep throwing a red thing around and telling me to "get the toy!" I have no idea what that's all about, so I just distract them with my beauty and sloppy kisses. I'll be ready to live with you in early October after I have my no puppies surgery. I can't promise I will "get the toy" but I will snuggle.

Frisco

Born: 8/1/12
Color: White w/ Black Patch
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Frisco! I just turned two years old. I wasn't very good at racing, so now I get to see if I'm a good pet. I think I will be. I'm kinda hangin' back, watching what goes on. People think I'm a little shy, but once I'm settled in, I plan to get into some mischief. That will show them. Hmmm...Diego just said that getting into mischief isn't being a "good dog." I guess I may have to rethink my plan.

Sasha

Born: January 1, 2012
Color: Red with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My new name is Sasha. The volunteers say it's pretty like me. They make me blush. I'm a little shy and really don't like too much attention. I don't run over to the volunteers when they're looking at me, but I like to sneak up on them when they aren't looking. My goal for next week is to let them pet me. EEEEE! Kinda scary, but it looks like fun. I'll let you know how that goes...

Bentley

Born: July 1, 2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
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.

Rebel

Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I am a Rebel! The first thing a good rebel does when locked up is to escape, so I did. I'm a happy boy who loves to interact with people. It's hard to do that when you're incarcerated. :)

Now they have a metal thingy holding my cage shut. You're going to have to spring me...

Ruby

Born: January 6, 2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: pending

About me:
Ruby returned to SA GREYS after living in an apartment for about a year. She is a very loving dog, and likes to watch TV. Ruby is house trained without a dog door, and tells you when she wants to go outside. She walks well on a leash and gets along well with other dogs of all sizes. After her morning walk, Ruby likes to nap, but after her evening walk she loves to run around the house playing with toys (e.g. gets the zoomies.) She has some separation anxiety, but isn't destructive. Ruby would like to join a family with another dog and more room to play.

Wish

Born: August 10, 2009
Color: Brown Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Forever
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
I got my first wish. I am officially retired. No more running in circles - I get to be a pet!! My second wish is to find my forever family. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for, other than someone to love me. I think it would be nice if we did things together, like going for walks, watching TV or sharing delicious people food. :) I thought I might be able to slip that last one past you. Even if I can't have delicious people food, I will love you back ten times over. I already finished pet boot camp, where I'll learn where to potty and what is or isn't a toy. Just remember... furry things that say "Meow" = not a toy.

Sully

Born: July 24, 2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Forever
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: pending

About me:
So the word around the kennel is I was named after a monster! I'm an AWESOME dog, so I found that hard to believe. A volunteer explained that Sully was a nice, fuzzy, friendly monster. I'm nice and fuzzy and friendly so I guess that works.

I have a blast when I get out of my kennel during morning turnout. I play with the volunteers and the the toys, and soak up lots of love. I try to remember I shouldn't jump up, but I want to hug back!

I can't wait to find a forever family where I can run free all day and get pets whenever I want. Toes crossed it will happen soon.

Wave

Born: July 25, 2011
Color: White with Fawn Patches
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
SA GREYS caught a Wave. That's me! I broke my leg, so after surgery I went directly into a foster home. I live with other greyhounds, a miniature pincher, cats, and young kids (and parents, of course). I absolutely LOVE people and other dogs. The people tease me about being a face licking, tail wager.

I want so badly to be right by their sides and play with the other dogs, but for now I have to rest in my pen most of the day. Even though I'm restless, I'm still a happy, happy dog! I can't wait to run free in my own house and back yard. I think I'll take a nap and dream about that...
