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 72 hours 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!

Note:  We have a large number of applications and we are working them as fast as we can.  If you submitted an application please be patient….we are getting more greyhounds in and will be working to help you find your fast friend.

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.

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!

Initial Evaluation: No Cats PleaseFoster Parent(s:) Gene & Rosanne P
Hi my name is Narco. I am a super sweet boy that came from Kansas. I have just been placed in my foster home so that I can learn more things about being a pet.

I had a little accident right after I arrived in Michigan. I tore my right hind ACL. It’s the same leg I recently broke and was in a cast for. My foot is a little deformed. The vet put me on crate rest for 4 weeks for that torn ACL. Man is that forever! But I am slowly healing. It made it hard to learn to do stairs, but I figured it out and now have no trouble. And talking about being crated, I don’t much care for it when I can’t see my people. I feel deserted and cry until you come back into sight then settle right down until you leave again. What a vicious cycle!

I tend to be a little shy right at first. I am uncomfortable when I don’t know the routine. I freeze, plain and simple. You have to drag me to where I need to be. But once I get the routine down, I go where I’m supposed to like the rest of the hounds here in my foster home. I think I need another hound to help me with the ropes. It took me several days to get the idea of going outside to potty. I think it was mostly the stairs I had to go down and up. But I got it now.

I also took several days to start eating well. My foster mom had to put canned food on my kibble for me to eat it. She kept reducing the canned until I was eating the dry all on its own. I only take the best treats too. Why waste my time on the average ones? I have my favorite dog bed for night-time sleeping. As long as I get to it before anyone else, I sleep straight thru the night. I don’t come when called very well. I’m not sure what’s going to happen so I hang back; knowing the routine thing interfering again. I do follow the pack quite well now; I bring up the rear. It’s where I am comfortable.

I’ve learned that my foster parents are real good at petting so I give them kisses to show I enjoy their attention. New people disturb me still. I need a week or so to accept new people. I enjoyed my car trip from Kansas to Michigan but did have trouble when we stopped for potty breaks. Didn’t know the routine. You will be happy to hear I wasn’t scared of the thunder the other night. And my bath went ok. There are so many new routines here in my retired life. I really need someone with a lot of patients and a friend to follow behind.

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

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.
