While greyhounds are loving, gentle and caring in nature, some of them have special needs or remaining prey drive. Have a look at the beautiful hounds below, but please understand we carefully screen for a fit, and though all of them are just adorable we want to make sure we're placing the right greyhound in your forever home. Be sure to
Over the last decade, greyhound racing in the U.S. has declined severely. The good news is the public is more aware of the cruelty associated with dog racing and are choosing not to patronize dog tracks. The bad news is there are fewer retired greyhounds looking for homes. For every ten greyhounds rescued from the track, at least seven are not cat-safe. This has lead to an increased wait time for families with cats, and so we ask that you are patient as we find, foster and test the dogs that are available to our group.
Greyhound Connection needs foster homes! If you might consider opening your home for a short while to help a recently retired greyhound find a loving forever home, please read our Foster a Grey page and contact us!
Gilmore is a 5 year old red girl. In new situations, she is initially a bit shy but warms up after a few minutes. It appears that Gilmore may be good with cats and small dogs as she has a relatively low prey drive. She will do best in a home with another dog for support. Gilmore is a happy girl and loves to wag her tail. Her “happy tail” is currently sporting a bandage. Not uncommon for greyhounds!
Harlow just turned 5 years old in April. She is a light brindle girl, very happy and outgoing. Early indications are that she has a high prey drive, so she will not be able to live with with cats or small dogs. She is confident, however, and could be a single dog. Playful and active, Harlow would be best in a home with children 6 years or older, however, she is still being evaluated.
