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 will contact you about creating a video and where to send for us to review.  Thank you for your assistance.

Due to COVID 19 restrictions GRACE will not be able to do adoptions in Canada until those restrictions are lifted.  

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.

Hi Everyone my name Is Monkey and I made the trip from Kansas to Michigan. I was bred to race but I had other things on my mind and sorta flunked out of schooling.

See the updates from his foster home:

Foster "Monkey" is enjoying his retirement, here he is hanging out with Noble on the back porch. Monkey is a handsome guy, he will be two years old in November. He is good with my dogs an enjoys their company, they like him too. He is not cat or small animal safe. Monkey has been learning a lot about living in a house, he is adjusting to retirement very well. Thank you Marcia for bringing Monkey and the two other girls to Michigan from Kansas. Monkey will be sending more pictures of himself in the next few days.

He is doing good walking on a leash, not interested in squirrels so far, no issues with small dogs or cats. He loves to be outside so sometimes he ignores you when you call him to come in. Loves to sleep on pillows and is good on wooden floors, and stairs.

 RHT Hanz Solo
Nickname: Solo
STATUS: ADOPTION IN THE WORKS
Sex: MaleColor: White & Fawn
Date of Birth: 5/5/2013Weight: 75 lbs
Sire: Kiowa Mon MannyDam: Mac's Hoppy
Right Ear: 53ALeft Ear: 61112
Micro Chip: 992001116740
Initial Evaluation: Cat & Small Dog SafeFoster Parent(s:) Kim F.
Hi, my name is RHT Hanz Solo, but everyone calls me Solo. I received that name because I was an only pup, no brothers or sisters, and was born on May 5th, the day after “May the fourth be with you”. I spent much of my puppyhood on Walter’s lap. He was my farm dad. Because of that, I grew up thinking I was his son, not his next champion greyhound.

I never made it to the track. Sa la vie. I NEED human attention; love it more than life itself. IF I feel ignored, I tell you about it both physically with a nose bump and verbally with heavy panting, whining, a bark, or a roo. I am well known for physically pushing others out of the way if they are receiving any attention so I can have it all for myself. I also bark and roo when I get excited indoors or about something outside. I would not be a good apartment hound for this reason.

When I am happy, I wag my tail, bounce up and down (don’t jump on you) and chatter so loud the neighbors can hear. I have lived with a smaller dog and got along fine. I could live with a cat with no problem. I am a picky treat eater; has to be a good one or I don’t want it. At mealtime I like plain yogurt on my kibble. I do stairs just fine and jump into the car with ease. I settle quickly in the car. I’m pretty good on the leash but could be better with more practice.

I have very good house manners and always ask to go outside. My current foster family have a dog door which I haven’t mastered because I try to hop through it and hit my back on the top of the door. Because I get hurt, I’m afraid of it. I don’t counter surf but am very interested if you have something in your hands. Toys and bones aren’t very interesting to me. Maybe I haven’t met the right one yet? After I settle into a home, I sleep the night through, waking up about 6-6:30 to go outside.

I really would like someone to sleep with. My foster parents sleep with one of their hounds so there is no room for me, whine, whine. Do you think you would like an extremely loving greyhound who still thinks he is a little boy?
