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.

Ruby

Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: available

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.

About me: I’m a medium-size brindle boy who loves interacting with people and other dogs. I’m easy breezy and will take up little space in your home. However, if you let me sleep with you on your bed, I’m a “sprawler,” so you could end up on the doggie couch! Just sayin’.

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...

Wish

Born: 8/10/09
Color: Brown Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

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.

Sammy

Born: 6/27/09

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...

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!

Noodle

Born: 7/04/09

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

About me:
I'm Noodle and I ran oodles of races. I'm going to be five years old on the 4th of July, so I guess they could have named me Doodle. (Let me know if you get that one. :) I love people and am a recidivist face licker, especially if you've eaten strudel. I would be so happy if I could live with you (and your poodle)!

Sorry. I can be a little goofy at times. I will probably make you smile and laugh every day. Also, I'm a good boy. Everyone says so. So...drop everything and come get me. Seriously... I'm more than ready to live a "cage free" life.

Why are you still sitting there?

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...

Wave

Born: 7/25/11
Color: White with Fawn Patches
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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...

Gabriella

Born: 6/27/10
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I like my new name, Gabriella. The volunteers tell me I'm cute and lovable, and my name fits me. I love playing with toys and getting pets from the volunteer during turnout. Today was extra special because a foster person came out to visit us and picked ME as her next foster dog. She played with me and even give me a bath! I'm told the next step in my journey to becoming a beloved pet is no-puppies surgery in early August. I hope the time goes fast!! If you want me to be your forever dog, you could come out and visit me now so we don't waste any time...

Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No

About me:
Hello! I'm Demi. I'm told I'm a super cute, little brindle girl. We don't have mirrors so I'm taking the volunteers' word for it. This morning I was assigned my very own toy. I don't have to share it with the other dogs and I get to take it with me to my foster and forever homes. Every time I look at it now, hanging on my dog run (the toy, not me), I get excited about what happens next! If you're looking for a super sweet foster or forever dog, pick ME!! If you visit bring cookies. I like cookies. A lot.

Carly

Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown

About me:
I hurt my rear end when I was running. It's not funny! It still hurts! I'm not allowed to run and play, so the volunteers put a leash thingy on me and walk me around the exercise yard. I think they're okay, but I'm reserving judgment for now.

One lady sat with me in my dog run today, talked quietly to me and pet my fur. I liked that and felt good enough to eat my breakfast. I hope my forever home has a person like her.

Jesse's Chance

Born: Unknown (4/14)
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
Little Jesse is a greyhound mix who was scheduled to be euthanized because he tested positive for Parvo and had an injured leg. PACC reached out to SA GREYS and we jumped at the chance to save him.

Jesse was a love bug from the beginning, despite illness and injury. Multiple re-tests revealed Jesse does not have Parvo, but he does have a broken leg. He will undergo surgery in the near future to correct the break, which had already partially healed incorrectly.

Jesse was snapped up by an adopter the first day, and is living in his forever home in foster-to-adopt status. His adoption will be final once he is healed and neutered.

Breaker

Born: October 1, 2010
Color: Dark Brindle with White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
They call me Breaker because I'm a heart breaker. Not only am I dashingly handsome, I love to have fun. I love chasing toys and playing with the volunteers. I hear them laughing at me when I'm playing. They also seem pretty happy when I stop by to cuddle and lick their faces. I think I'll be a good pet because I'll do my best to make you smile and laugh too. All I need in return is a good squeaky toy and you!

Indigo

Born: 7/5/12
Color: Blue (Gray)
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
My name is Indigo because I'm blue. Yes, I am one of those rare gray greyhounds. I was admiring a handsome dog this morning in the bathroom, then I realized it was my own reflection. I guess the cast should have been a clue.

Also, I'm blue because I broke my leg racing. I'm having surgery on Tuesday to fix it. I'm told it's going to cost over $4,000, so send your spare change to SA GREY's Jackie's Fund!

I'm hanging out at a house with some other dogs until Tuesday. The pet life seems to be a good gig. I'm really looking forward to being able to run around the house and yard, and enjoy my new found freedom! I'm be ready to be your forever pet as soon as my leg is healed.

Gina

Born: August 9, 2012
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
So, I'm Bandit's sister. You may remember him. He's the sneaky hound who faked being sick and landed a foster home his second day in the kennel. I hate to admit it, but I tried to follow his lead.

I successfully convinced the SA GREYS folks to take me to the vet the day after I arrived. I was so excited the plan was working I MAY have forgotten to look sick and pitiful. They got wise to my shenanigans, and I'm still in the kennel.

Oh well, I understand tomorrow is spa day, and they're going to give me a nice bath and brushing so my pretty black fur shines. I guess I'll wait my turn for a foster home... If you volunteer to foster, the line may move more quickly. Just sayin'

Picasso

Born: 9/20/10
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
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?

Diego

Born: 9/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Diego. I am a happy boy, whether playing with my new toy or getting back rubs from the volunteers. I was trying to convince them that they should take me to dog beach in San Diego in honor of my new name. They weren't buying it, but said I should ask my forever person to take me.

Turns out I don't have a forever person yet. Would you like to be my forever person and run with me on dog beach? Just think about it... the lapping of the waves, the wind in our fur (okay, my fur), a graceful hound prancing by your side... I've submitted a photo of me gracefully running so you can better picture it in your mind. It would be fun and who doesn't need more fun in his or her life!

Marty

Born: 5/17/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
They should have named me Tigger!! I'm a red and black striped, bouncy, pouncy, ball of fur and love. It's SO much fun to run around the exercise yard, get back rubs from the volunteers, or just hang out and enjoy the beautiful morning. I've heard foster and forever homes are even better. I'm SO excited. It's hard not to jump around like my bottom is made out of springs.... (Speaking of springs, if you would like to spring me from the kennel, I'm totally up for a road trip.)

Sully

Born: 7/24/09
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

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.
