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.

Beauty

Born: 1/06/2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?:
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: available

About me:
Beauty has been living in an apartment for about a year. She is a very loving dog, and likes to watch TV. Beauty 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, Beauty 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. Beauty would like to join a family with another dog and more room to play.

Dash

Born: 6/28/2011
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
Dash is my name. I'm a little shy, but am getting more confident everyday. Now I look forward to running out the door to play with the volunteers. I love to pick up the string toy and try and sneak it into the kennel, but the volunteer tells me I must leave it for the next hound to play with. So, I settle for my big milk bone while I wait for breakfast.

About me:
My new name, Bahama, suits me. I'm very laid back and can't wait to chill on the sofa with my forever peeps. Don't tell anyone, but I'm actually a little shy. Maybe after I get to know you better, I'll show you my party side. I'll be ready to move in with you before the Super Bowl, so save a spot for me close to the snacks!

Legend

Born: 5/12/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I am Legend. I definitely have stories to tell... I didn't have to race as long as other dogs because I had a sore leg. I'm doing fine now that I'm in the SA GREYS kennel. The volunteers keep a leash thingy on me when I'm in the exercise yard so I don't hurt my leg again. I don't mind. I'd want to stay close to the peoples anyway and I can still pounce on stuffies. I think my leg would feel A LOT better if I was laying on your sofa being hand fed jerky treats. Just sayin...

Indiana

Born: 5/25/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I went directly into a foster home because I had to have surgery to fix my broken leg. The cast hasn't slowed me down a bit! I love being close to my foster mom and dad, and am happy to clomp along after them, room to room.

The transition from racing greyhound to pampered pet was pretty easy. All I have to do is roo that I'm hungry or want to go outside, and they feed me or let me out. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE my new toys. Toes crossed I'll be snuggling with my forever family soon.

Storm

Born: 6/22/11
Color: White with Brindle Patches
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I think Storm is a good, strong name. Also, my brindle patches kinda' look like storm clouds. However, my personality is more like a bright blue, sunshiny day. I LOVE people and my foster brother, River. I clomp after them when they move from room to room so I can stay close. I'm looking forward to getting my cast off so I can run and play with the other greyhounds. It sure looked like fun! I am hoping to find a foster person or family who wants me by their side almost all the time.

Wink

Born: 3/07/09
Color: White with Brindle Patches
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I raced around in circles for a long time, then broke my leg. I'm so happy I will celebrate my fifth birthday next week in my new foster home. I'm really enjoying my foster siblings - the kitties and the other dogs. Also, my foster mom feeds me roasted chicken from a place called the grocery store. YUM!! This grocery store thing sounds interesting... I've asked my foster mom if I can go with her to get groceries, but she won't let me. She said she'd take me to PetsMart or Petco instead, so I can charm a forever family. Sound like a plan. Maybe my forever family will take me to the grocery store. :)

Sammy

Born: 6/27/09
Color:
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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...

Leah

Born: 8/17/10
Color: Black w/ White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Leah the Love Bug. I LOVE people! I know the volunteers were trying to take pictures of me and wanted me to stay back, but I couldn't help myself. I want to be right next to them. (I know it looks like I was sneaking up on Cindy to bite her behind, but I wasn't... I'm a happy, bouncy, friendly dog. I'd never bite anyone in the behind. :)

I would love to cuddle with you on the sofa. I'll be ready for pick up in April, as soon as I have my no-puppies surgery.

Blondie

Born: 3/01/10
Color: Dark Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I think the person who named me was blond. Sorry, that wasn't nice. It's just that I'm proud of my pretty chocolate brindle fur. Maybe they named me Blondie because they were hoping I would have more fun. That would be okay.

I think it will be fun to have a forever person to love me. We can hang out together, go for walks, and play with squeaky toys. Well, from what I hear, I'll be the one who plays with squeaky toys but I am willing to share... If you want to be my forever person, I'd love to meet you. No need to wait. From what I hear, we tiny brindle girls go fast!

Alicia

Born: 5/06/11
Color: Light Fawn
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm a bit of an introvert. I see Sammy and Leah playing with the peoples and it looks like they're having fun. I'm just not ready to do that yet. I prefer to stand on the sidelines until I'm more comfortable with my new environment.

I think I'd really like to live in a quiet home with another greyhound who could be my mentor and friend. If you give me time to adjust, I'll be the best friend you ever had.

Slick

Born: 3/25/12
Color:
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I am Slick. I wiggled my way into a foster home before I turned three years old! I love being a pet. I have two greyhound foster siblings to keep me company. I can go through the doggie door to go outside anytime I want. I get chicken for dinner every night. What's not to like! My foster parents give me lots of love and pets. They've even talked about taking me to dog beach in San Diego on their airplane. Sweet!

As great as all this sounds, what I really want is to find my forever family. I don't care if they feed me kibble instead of chicken or don't ever take me flying, as long as they love me forever. I think I'd be happiest with a doggie brother or sister, but I'm willing to try anything!

Hayley

Born: 7/09/10
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I’m Hayley, and I can run like a comet when I don’t have a broken leg. My racing career is over, but I’m considering taking up soccer. I have a definite advantage over the two legged peoples because I will be able to kick the ball with all four paws, and run between their legs. Tee hee.

I would be willing to forgo my soon-to-be-illustrious soccer career if you’ll let me be your forever couch potato. Let me know. Until then, I’m keeping my options open…

Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
The first couple days, I just wanted to cuddle with the volunteers. Then I was introduced to my first squeaky toy. I'm not sure which I like best, the peoples or the toys, so I bounce from one to the other.

I've heard all the rumors at the kennel about being a "pet"... I know my family is out there somewhere, so I'm keeping a close eye on the gate. I love them already.

Sparkle

Born: 5/10/11
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Sparkle is a great name for an actress like me. I really didn't like living in the SA GREYS kennel. All of the non-greyhound dogs talked CONSTANTLY. Drove me crazy. I decided to bat my eyelashes and act scared.

One of the volunteers bought my act and whisked me away to her house. I'm trying to remember to act shy and scared, but I keep slipping up, following her around. I going to try to stay in character for a couple weeks!! I'll let you know how it goes.

Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Jake the Jungle Cat. Like a sleek, black panther, I will creep up on you and....lick your face. HA! I bet that's not what you thought I was going to say!

I am a friendly, laid-back dog. They tell me this is the "home stretch" after a long racing career and I'll be laying on a soft dog bed soon. I really like hanging out with people, so I was happy to learn my retirement home will come with a forever person. I'm going to practice playing with toys, napping, and leaning on the volunteers so I'll be ready!
