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.

This month’s featured retire is…

Nyla PN

I am a super sweet high energy that loves to play.  I mean that I am super active and love to play.  So I would probably do well in an agility class or something that will work off some of my energy.

Hi my name is Nyla and I am making the trip from Kansas to Michigan. Once I arrive in Michigan we will be cat tested and than placed in our foster home to learn the finer points of being a retired greyhound.

Update:
Foster Nyla is doing great. She is SMART. She has so far figured out how to ring the bells to ask us to open the door and go through the dog door all on her own. She has also mastered stairs. We’re gonna work on Sit now since she’s a sitting machine anyway. She loves to run in the yard and I think she would probably do best at a home with a fenced in yard. Being able to go out a few times and day and zoom really seems to burn off some excess energy.

Hi my name is Charmeleon and I made the trip from Kansas to Michigan. I traveled with my littermate Charizard who is also looking for his forever home.

Foster update! Charm (Charmeleon) really knows how to work those puppy dog eyes! He’s adjusting well and is learning the ropes for retirement. He loves my girls and is coming out of his shell more every day! Things I know about him so far:
-he loves snow! Like REALLY loves snow and would probably stay out all day if I let him 😂
-super handsome, loves to come up for snugs
-he’s a collector and has a special affinity for clothes and shoes but doesn’t chew them (thank goodness!)
-loves toys, doesn’t really play but loves to hoard them
-he’s getting used to the stairs, has gone up and down successfully a couple times but needs lot encouragement because they’re scary
-isn’t afraid of the wood floors, but definitely has had some Bambi on ice moments between the rugs
-no space or food aggression
-not cat safe and would probably love to snack on some of the neighborhood cats that wander in front of my house

Hi my name is Flip and I am made the trip from Kansas to Michigan. I did have a short racing career at Wheeling West Virginia - 16 Races.

2/19/21
Here's Foster Flip, aka PJ Ontheflipside. He will be 3 on Monday! Flip is still a little intimidated by his move to Michigan, but he's starting to get the hang of things. Flip is very chill, he likes to hang out on the bed in the crate accepting all loves, treats and pets from his cushy throne. He's learning to go outside to do his business and getting a little bolder in exploring the house every day.

Foster Flip gets along with small dogs, is gentle with children, and is able to navigate laminate floors. He jumps on the door but not the counters 😄 I just now noticed he has a pink heart on his nose 💖 imagine that!

I am on the bit of the shy side to start...I have been moved 3 times in the last couple of days so it will take me time to relax and know that I am in a stable place to relax and learn the finer points of being a pet. Patience is the key with me...I will be okay.

Hi my name is Taelynn and I just made the trip from Kansas to Michigan. I did have a short racing career at Wheeling in West Virginia (12 races) and now it is time for me and my sister Tinsley to find a couch to call our own. I hear that we are supposed to be couch potatoes so I guess I can learn that!!

We are blessed with two new fosters. Meet Taelynn (gorgeous cowgirl) and Tinsley (black beauty). I got them in the shower right away because they were stinky. Lol now they’re clean and fed. Taelynn is the alpha. She would bark at Tinsley if for close to her food, but the funny thing is that she will let my Niko eat food from her plate at the same time she was eating. I’ll keep you posted with updates of their Chenenigans.

UPDATE: Foster sisters Tinsley and Taelynn are totally home broken. They let me know when they need to go out. Both are great with stairs and they are very inquisitive. Super smart girls. Always getting in trouble. 😂🤣🥰
Both love to give kisses but Tinsley is better at it. If you scratch their neck they’ll love you for life and follow you around the house begging for more scratching. These girls are the whole package and deserve to stay together.
