Max

 

 

 
Max is five years young. The general lifespan of greyhounds is 12 to 14 years so he is an adult and you don't have to take him through puppyhood but he has a whole lot of love left to give. He's a sweet boy who will go for a walk with you or watch TV on the couch. Greyhounds make great couch potatoes. Greyhounds are also easy dogs to live with and want with all their heart just to please you. Max is healthy and up to date on all his shots and tests and is ready to go out the door.

Max is a big tall boy who is so ready to be in a home. He was in one for a while but he got overly excited one day and kinda-sorta bit his mom and he needs a new place to live. He didn't do it on purpose, he just got really carried away and there's no permanent damage except for his homelessness. He's a sweet boy but big and excitable.

He has wonderful, classic brindle markings and his coat is soft. He is quite big but has a lot of love inside. He'll do anything you can make him understand that you want. He loves to please and be with you. He has tested to be somewhat cat tolerant and will most likely get along with a feline, given a proper introduction and a oversight in the beginning. He would do probably do best with a cat with a dominant personality. But if the cat runs, he is likely to chase and greys are very fast.

Friends of Greyhounds will even deliver him to your door! We like to bring the dog to your home so you can see how he handles your environment. Many ex-racing dogs have never gone up steps!! When you adopt a greyhound, you get to see the world through new eyes.

Based in Sunrise, FoG adopts in the South Florida area and we can be reached at the office number 954-578-0072 or call our cell phones. The message has the numbers. Check our website at www.friendsofgreyhounds.org or email us at fogdogs@comcast.net.

Let a Greyhound Race into you Heart!

Happy Harry

 

 

 
Happy Harry is a big, happy go lucky, healthy greyhound. He is young and full of life. There's no way to be sad around this guy! His long tail travels a lot of distance in a day! He has a great appetite and a great outlook on life. What a handsome, wonderful addition he will be for someone's home.

Harry is a dark brindle boy and he is happy and healthy and ready to go to a wonderful home. That home should not have cats, though, as Harry is a bit too aggressive to live with a cat. But he will be a great partner for visits to the dog park or long walks or fun in the back yard. Greyhounds sleep a lot but this guy plays hard while he is awake to earn that sound sleep!

Harry will be a sweet and wonderful partner to go through your life with. He will listen to your problems but never open your mail (probably). He is one of the few greyhounds that enjoys barking and he will let you know if there's someone at the door or if it's time for a walk. He won't make dinner for you but will complement every dish you serve him by cleaning the bowl! He's tall and handsome and all your friends will be jealous! The perfect partner!

[A special note for Happy Harry - - Harry was adopted to a nice family with 2 young girls. He was only there for one day when mom's boss decided she could no longer work from home so there'd be no one to let him out for 10 hours a day. They had to give him up but they wrote a glowing letter about how good a dog he is and how well he handled living in their home. So he has one day's experience in house dog living before he was returned. it wasn't his fault and he's a GREAT dog! ]

Billy

 

 

 
Billy was a racing dog but not a particularly good one. So after 14 professional races, he was sent packing. I didn't even know they would allow a racer to run that many "maiden" races!! He had lots of chances but it wasn't his thing. So now he is ready for his retirement job as a couch potato and bed warmer.

Greyhounds make great pets. They are clean and have no doggie smell and have been bred for centuries to obey what their humans teach them. Of course, since they no longer have to follow the chariot to the hunting fields, you may want to do a little retraining. But generally, they will do anything for their human family.

Billy was in a home for a while but he is a powerful dog and as we understand it, he was being nagged by a small dog on a retractable leash and he panicked and snapped at it. Because of the bite, he had to leave town. Sometimes it is hard for people to understand how a big dog can be afraid of a small dog but when it's yapping and tying you up in a leash, it can be scary even for a big dog. The previous owners have written a long letter to tell the new owners all about Billy. They love him dearly and would love to hear from his new family. But they still have to live in the area and had to let Billy move out.

According to the prior owners, he is smart and sweet and playful and very eager to learn. He will do really well with other greyhounds in the home, too. He fetches and does some basic commands and loves to be with people but does not enjoy other dogs - unless they are greyhounds. From our own observations, you will need a lot of dog toys for this guy. He absolutely loves every single toy and carries a toy around in his mouth whenever he can. We have to catch him to keep him from stealing toys from the other dogs' kennels and running outside with them. Life is a big, fun game for Billy.

Billy did not test as cat tolerant here at our kennel and should not live with cats or small critters. He also has a microchip and the previous owners will assist with that ownership transfer if needed.

To arrange to meet Billy and our other available greys, visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org for all the details. You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. When you are ready, call us at 954-578-0072. if we're not around, the recording will give you our cell numbers. You can also email us at fogdogs@comcast.net We'd love to hear from you!

Andy

 

 

 
Andy is an extraordinary retired racing greyhound. One of four pups in his litter, he must have had lots of attention from his mom because he really likes women. He was a healthy, hard working dog and he ran 191 races. Racers are generally retired at 5 years old and Andy turned five in May. He's looking for a retirement home - - maybe your couch??

We have not cat tested Andy but i wouldn't hold out too much hope that he'll be tolerant of living with a cat. We'll see. He's a strong, healthy and smart boy. He's a bit older than some of our guys but with age comes wisdom and I've found that the mature dogs are way more appreciative of a good home and take direction so much better. And don't let that little bit of gray on his nose fool you. Greys have a natural lifespan of 12-14 years. Andy has a lot of love left to give.

To arrange to meet Andy and our other available greys, visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org for all the details. You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. We are based in South Florida and do not generally adopt out of our area. There are many other greyhound adoption groups in the country and we prefer that you adopt from a local group so that you and your new dog have the backup and support available if you have questions.

If you are local and ready to visit, call us at 954-578-0072 to make an appointment to come to our kennel in Sunrise. If we're not around, the recording will give you our cell numbers. You can also email us at fogdogs@comcast.net We'd love to hear from you!

Ironman

 

 

 
Ironman is tall and handsome and has a whole lot of love to give. At 70 pounds, he still looks thin. He came to us last February and was adopted into a household with a mom, dad, another greyhound and two children, 10 & 11. Everything was going great until mom went out one day and when she came home, Ironman was SOOOO excited to see her that he jumped on her. Her young son tried to grab his collar to save mom and in all the excitement, he was hurt by Ironman. It was more of a scratch than a bite and it happened in a split second. But mom and the kids were insecure around him after that and life was not good any more. So we agreed to bring Ironman back to the kennel and find him a new, great home.

Mom wrote up some notes for him. Among other things, she says that loves to go for walks with you. He will walk as far and as long as you can - - but he must mark everything for the first 3/4 mile!! He also enjoys barking at squirrels and cats
and loves to have his rump scratched!!

We have all of his records and history and vet records - - - Now all we need is a home. How about yours?

Vicky

 

 

 
Vicky is a very, very small red-brindle greyhound. She is sweet and loving and so very affectionate. She came to us with a serious leg injury that has required major surgery and months of healing, x-rays, checking, more healing, more doctor visits - - but we think we are approaching the end of that business and will be able to get busy looking for a home for her.

Vicky falls down. No, not from the bad leg. When you pet Vicky and she gets happy, her tail wiggles so hard that she can't stand up. And very quickly she is sliding down to the ground so she can let you pet her belly while her tail wags a hundred miles an hour!! She could not be sweeter or cuter or happier to be with people! She has another checkup with the Orthopedic Vet on August 3rd. Meantime she can't do anything strenuous like long walks or any running. (Try to keep a greyhound from running for two months - - NOT EASY!!! ) Leash walks all the way until the vet is sure everything has healed in the right place.

Vicky could be adopted to a local home if you are willing to do the leash walking and can get her back to us to go to the follow up vet appointment. Otherwise, we'll plan on keeping her here at the kennel where her movement can be restricted while the leg continues to heal.

Vicky has been spayed and other than her leg injury, is ready to go to a home. You won't believe how cute and sweet this dog is!!

More on Vicky as it becomes available. If you just can'€™t wait, feel free to reach out to us by email (fogdogs@comcast.net) or by phone. There'€™s several options on our profile pages.

Bambi

 

 

 
Weighing only 61 pounds in her last race, Bambi is a small greyhound and she is only 2 years old. She'€™s a lovely red color which goes well with every decor and with the colorful casts we have been using on her right rear leg since her orthopedic surgery. Her racing career ended in a spill but we have had her worked on by one of the very best canine Orthopedic surgeons in Florida. Her cast should be off the beginning of August and then xrays will tell us if she needs further work. (Friends of Greyhounds will of course handle all the cost of the care from our vet for this injury.)

We expect that she may have a bit of a limp but overall, it will not impact her ability to be an amazing house dog. She is such a happy, wonderful spirit! You will be amazed at how much love and fun and happiness she can bring into your home. Retired racers make excellent pets. The routine and training they have been given to live in the racing kennels means a lot less training for her new owners. Greyhounds adapt to homelife easily and gratefully.

Bambi is sweet and happy and even with the cast, she gets around quite well. She may never win a race again but I guarantee she can win your heart! She is so sincere and eager to please.

Bambi has passed her cat test. We think she will be alright to live with a cat with proper introduction.

Burt

 

 

 
Burt is a lot of love in a small compact package - well small for a greyhound anyway. His nickname is Buzz (think: Burt'€™s Bees!) He is only 2 years old and has a beautiful red brindle coat. Greyhounds have a short, very thin coat so there is almost no shedding - especially with a boy like Burt. He is however, slightly imperfect.

Please notice the handsome purple cast on his right rear leg. It was put there by an excellent orthopedic surgeon and he should be done with it the first week of August. His racing career ended in a spill but his repair work was done by one of the very best canine Orthopedic surgeons in Florida. After the cast comes off, xrays will tell us if he needs further work. (Friends of Greyhounds will of course handle all the cost of the care from our vet for this injury.)

We expect that he may have a bit of a limp but overall, it will not impact his ability to be an amazing house dog. He is a happy, playful guy! He has never lived in a home and you will be seeing the world throug new eyes. He is so loving and happy and is so ready for great family. Retired racers make excellent pets. The routine and training they have been given to live in the racing kennels means a lot less training for her new owners. Greyhounds adapt to homelife easily and gratefully.

Even with the cast, Burt gets around quite well. He may never win a race again but I guarantee he can win your heart! He is gentle and sweet and has the biggest eyes! You really should meet him in person!

Burt's cat test was rated a "maybe" which means we were not sure about his ability to live with a cat. Generally with these "maybe" dogs, if the cat is strong willed and puts the dog in his place, they will be alright together. If a cat is a runner though, the dog may give chase and that's not good.

Hotshot

 

 

 
We have greyhound siblings available!! This is quite a rare opportunity in the greyhound world!! This sweet little fawn girl is named Hotshot and she is quite small for greyhound standards. But she can run like the wind!! She has 127 races and is only four years old. She is a beautiful, friendly, sweet girl who is just looking for a happy, happy home.

We also have her litter-brother, Wheels, in the kennel right now. We have Cricket, another litter sister out on a home trial. She came into our kennel a while ago. All the dogs in this litter are so special and sweet and gentle. You really need to come meet Hotshot and Wheels.

Even though these are ex-racing dogs, you don't need a large yard. A small fenced area is great for them or leash walks and an occasional trip to the dog park will do just fine. Even when they are racing professionally, they only race every four days or so. And they sleep away the days in between!

Hotshot has passed her cat test. We think she will be alright to live with a cat with proper introduction.

Wheels

 

 

 
Wheels is a handsome brindle boy, on the small side for a male greyhound, and he is ALL legs!! His racing career has ended and at four years old, he is looking for home and a new career as a housedog. You have to see him to appreciate how handsome this long-legged guy is. He is sweet and quiet and very, very well behaved. At four years old and with 136 races under his belts, he is ready to warm a couch at your house!

We have greyhound siblings available!! This is quite a rare opportunity in the greyhound world!! We also have his litter-sister, Hotshot, in the kennel right now. And another litter sister, Cricket, is out on a home trial. All the dogs in this litter are so special and sweet and gentle. You really need to come meet Hotshot and Wheels.

Even when they are racing professionally, they only race every four days or so. And they sleep away the days in between! They are clean, easy dogs and full of love!

Wheels was tested for cat tolerance and the results were inconclusive. He might be able to live with a cat but it will depend on the personality of the cat. A home without cats would probably be preferable.
