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

Born: 1/06/2009
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 answer to Cami. I’m a gorgeous black female, elected by my kennel mates as the spokes dog for the group. Yes, we’re thinking of joining the greyhound union. I’m a natural for the job because I’m rather vocal. There’s just one problem. The union refuses doggie biscuits as payment for our union dues. Anyone know a good pawfur attorney?

Bentley

Born: 7/01/2009 Color: Brindle Gender: Male Housed where: Foster Cats?: No Small Dogs?: No Status: available

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’.

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.

Bahama

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

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...

Storm

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

Sammy

Born: 6/27/09
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...

Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

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
Color: Red
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?

Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown

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...

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.

Dancer

Born: 4/15/10
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
If you're picturing a ballet dancer, think again. I'm more of a crazy party dancer. I LOVE to jump around and wiggle! I can't wait to dance around in my own living room and back yard!!

If you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain...

Oh sorry, lost my focus for a minute. If you want to be my dance partner, just submit one of the on-line adoption application thingies. My people will call your people.

...I'm not much in Yoga, I am into Champagne... Roo, roo, roo, ROO...

Lilly

Born: 12/15/10
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

About me:
When they told me I was retiring, I didn't know what to expect. I'm only three years old and have a lot of life left to live! When I moved into the SA GREYS' kennel, my litter mate Sassy was living right next door to me! She told me everything she has heard about foster and forever homes, playing with toys, going for long walks and cuddling with people on a soft sofa. I'm going to like retirement!!

I love leaning on volunteers and getting pets. I can't pet back, so I give kisses instead. They say I'm sweet and someone is going to snap me up right away. YAY! I also LOVE chasing stuffies around the exercise pen.

I'll have my no puppies surgery mid-July and will be ready to move in with you shortly thereafter. I can't wait!!

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...

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.

Gabriella

Born: 6/27/10
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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...

Demi

Born: 3/20/10
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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.

Marty

Born: 5/17/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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.)

Carly

Born: 8/16/12
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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.

Kelsie

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

About me:
I arrived at the SA GREYS kennel yesterday. The first thing they told me was I just missed my litter mate Sparkle. I'm happy she was adopted, but I would have loved to see her again.

I'm still getting accustomed to the new kennel routine. Today during exercise time I just walked from one volunteer to the next to test their petting and back rub methods. They all seemed nice and did a good job petting me, so I guess I'll try that again tomorrow.

If anyone is in touch with Sparkle, tell her to call me. I'd like to hear more about these foster and forever homes the other dogs are talking about. Better yet, maybe one of you could give me a tour or let me move in. I think I'd prefer a nice quiet home to the noisy kennel. Those non-greyhounds are real talkers...

Indigo

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

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.

Whiskey

Born: 1/4/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I hurt both a front and rear leg last week racing, so I was allowed to leave the track and become a pet. I didn't know what that meant, but I'm a happy guy who's pretty much up for anything.

I ended up at a house with a nice lady who pets me and plays with me. She has a BIG back yard too. She says I'll be able to run and play whenever I want as soon as my legs feel better. I'm pretty content just snoozing on a dog bed near her feet for now... I'd love to snooze at your feet and play in your back yard. Just fill out one of those adoption applications thingies. Then we'll both be happy.
