Available Retirees


 

G.R.A.C.E. believes that prospective adopters should have a chance to learn about the greyhounds available. See what they look like, ask questions about particular dogs, and ultimately choose a greyhound who will best suit their circumstances and enrich their lives.

  • We help adopters choose dogs by providing detailed information about each dog and offering suggestions about which dogs would work best in the adopter’s environment.

  • We do not place a dog in a home without the adopters full involvement in the decision-making process.

  • All families with children ages 3 through 5 years must have a fenced in yard to adopt.  Due to the fact that we cannot conduct in home visits with young children to see the true interaction between the grey and the children we are updating our requirements raising the minimum age to 3.  

  • Please click on the application tab to complete the application.

  •   Please feel free to follow up with us regarding your application at 734-558-4218 if you have not heard from us within 4 days of submitting your application. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting or fostering a greyhound, and we look forward to hearing from you!

 

UPDATE:  Because of the current conditions in our state and across the country we are not doing on site home visits. We are asking our applicants to send in a video of their home, yard and pets to help us make a determination on approval and working to find a greyhound that will meet your requirements.  Once the video is received we will work to have the foster parents contact the applicants to discuss their fosters.  Videos can be sent to: gracehounds@yahoo.com or 734-558-4218.  Please make sure you include your name on your videos.  

Thank you

Below are our current Available Retirees. Feel free to pick one, or several, to become your new family pet! Remember, greyhounds are like potato chips…you can’t have just one.

Hello my name is Asher aka Sallisaw and I am a special boy that is looking for my forever home.  I will need a home with another dog and someone that is really patient.

Hi my name is Antwon a and I came to Michigan from Kansas. I never made it to racing even though I have some pretty good racers in my bloodline. My brother Archy aka Shattuck came to GRACE last month and he has already found his forever home...now it is my turn.

I am adjusting slowly to life as a pet. I do better in the mornings, I guess you could say I am a morning dog. I like having my foster brother around for support so I guess I would do better in a home with another dog. I am kinda shy so it takes me a bit to come out of my shell. My foster parents are trying to introduce me to new things but it will take me a bit of time before I become more confident. I need someone that is willing to let me grow into the grey I know I was born to be.

Stay tune for more updates!

Hi my name is Fiasco and I cam to GRACE from Kansas. I did have a very short racing career (5 races) but found out it wasn't for me. I have found that I like playing and gathering toys in my foster home. I am super sweet and will make a wonderful addition to someone's home. I sleep well at night and get along with the other dogs in my foster home. I do cry a little bit when I am left during the day...but my foster mom is working on that with me. So I would do better in a house not an apartment.

My brother Flynn and my sister Flirty have already been adopted by GRACE Families...so now it is my turn.

Hi my name is Solar and I am a special greyhound. I am a special needs boy. I am blind. Once I get my bearings I will do great. I am super sweet, but can be a little shy in new surroundings...I guess that's to be expected. I have just been placed in my foster home and have an appointment to see the eye specialist. My foster mom is working with me on walking on a leash and house manners. I do love being outside and have learned the yard in my foster home. I am really smart so it shouldn't take me long to learn the ropes.

Solar has been working hard learning to walk on a leash. He came to me ringing his bells tonight when loose in the yard! Hes still uncomfortable inside the house and prefers his crate. But hes eating now and taking treats. He is not really comfortable with the noises small children make. He is smart and sweet and learning fast.

Stay tuned for updates as my foster mom learns new things about and I learn new stuff too.

Hi my name is Flame and I just came to GRACE after finishing my racing career in West Virginia at Tri State (59 races). I have to have my medicals scheduled and completed before I can be adopted, but until than I will learn more about the finer points of being a pet.

I have been doing great in my foster home. I have had no accidents in the house and get along great with the other greyhounds in my foster home. I would do better in a home because I am a talker...I like to know where my people are.

I am not afraid of the vacuum cleaner and come to investigate what you are doing when you turn it on. I like to roach and play in the leaves when my foster mom was raking them into a pile...just for me. I do like my food and am not a picky eater. I do like to play with toys too.

I just got out of my splint, I hurt my hock and it needed to heal...now I am working on using it again....mind over matter. I am still on restrictions for about another week....no running...darn. I am a people dog...meaning I love my people and follow them around and miss them when they go out of my view. I love routine....so once you establish a routine I will adapt.
