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 7 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.

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.

I found my brother Spike! What a wonderful surprise after that long trip from Kansas to Michigan. I am such a happy girl. Spike and I run in the yard together (when it isn’t too cold or raining – ugh), we play tag and fake rassle games, snuggle while we nap. This is just the best!

I’m a food hog just like Spike, any food I see or smell should be mine. For some reason I get yelled at when I put my feet on the counter to take what is rightfully mine. After all, finders keepers.

Spike and I also play with toys together. We see which can completely destroy the toy first. Then we eat them as a celebration of the fun we just had. For some reason, I am made to wear my muzzle in the house most of the time. I’ve been pretty good about not having accidents in the house if my foster parents remember to take me outside often enough. I’m having trouble going out the dog door. After all, I just came from the farm where I only got to go out when I was let out. I have figured out how to come in the dog door on my own.

Don’t care for the cold and rain. I like to ride in the car and jump right in. On the way to Michigan, we stopped at a rest area that had a dog run. There was a fluffy little thing in there. It sure looked like a wonderful toy so I tried to get it but I was restrained. Probably a good thing, as I wouldn’t have had the time to properly dismantle it. The cat testing was exciting until I wasn’t allowed to dismantle them.

There was a little human at cat testing. He was fun. I gave him kisses and he petted me. Things I am learning in my foster home are to come when called – easy because I get petted, stay when told – that’s hard, keep four feet on the floor – real hard, stay off the furniture – but there’s a blanket that needs chewing on. All the rules! As I learn more, I’ll let you know.

Look deep into her eyes…you want to adopt a greyhound….
This is foster Pippa! She is an Australian immigrant - happy to be in the states and excited to find her forever home. Pippa is two years old, very friendly and lovable, and a roaching expert. She is not cat safe, but would do great as an only dog or with a submissive friend.
Is Pippa the perfect pup for you??

Hello GRACE! Meet Foster Pippa! She is one of the Aussie pups that came over last weekend. She loves PEOPLE, treats, and sleeping with her blanket. She does not like when 1) her food dish is empty, 2) squirrels won’t stand still to be loved, or 3) walnuts fall and crash on the deck. She is super lovable and wants nothing more than to be with you.

Foster Knuckles just living the life 🤣 half roach complete

Australian foster, Knuckles, has settled in nicely. He gets along very well with our two greyhounds. He’s super sweet and such a good boy. He follows me around and sticks his head under my hand for pets. The only thing he’s tried marking are his food bowl and foster sister.🤣
