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.

Hello everyone, my name is Froto and I am a retired racer. I didn't have a long racing career (12 races) at TriState in West Virginia but I can still run pretty fast. I am on the shy side and take a bit of time to warm up to people. I would do great in a home with someone who is patient and willing to watch me grow in my environment.

I have been placed in my foster home to learn the finer points of being a pet...stay tuned for updates.

Hi, my name is Getting Over Him but everyone calls me Flash because there isn’t any getting over me. I am a happy go lucky, fun loving, exuberant, life is great kind of guy. I am an almighty hunter with one mouse on my kill list. I protect the yard from all critters. I thoroughly enjoy playing with the other hounds in my foster home.

I do love all the toys too. Problem is I tend to eat them then pass them later on in the yard or upchuck them in the middle of the night. Which brings me to eating. I LOVE EATING!!! Can’t get enough. I am trying to work on not counter or table surfing, grabbing food or bags that might have food in them from my foster parents, grabbing other hound’s treats and snitching food out of the dog food bag. But it’s really hard. Food is just soooo good!

I also love getting and giving attention. I you think those love story movies have good kissing scenes, you just try one of my kissing scenes. My tongue moves at the speed of a racing Greyhound. And I can keep it up for several minutes. When I kiss you, you know you’ve been kissed.

I also like to snuggle close; physical contact is very important. I’d love to sleep with someone if I could only get over this sleep startle issue. I’m working on it. I sleep the night pretty well but do need to relieve myself kind of early in the morning. Then it's back to bed ‘till breakfast time.

I have mastered the stairs and slick floors don’t slow me down. I come when called; might get a treat or attention. I ride in the car better with another hound; don’t like being alone. I walk fairly good on a leash but could use more practice. Did I mention I eat really well?

I wouldn’t be good around small children as I would probably knock them over. When I’m excited I almost knock adults over. After all, I’m only 2. I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you reading this! I know you need a kiss or 10.

I have been placed in my foster home to learn the finer points of being a pet...stay tuned for updates.

Foster Lucifer (PJ Much Money) discovered the toys this morning. After he completely emptied the toy basket, he thought the basket might be a toy too. I think a few stuffies are going to die here. Yep, he is going to need some tuff toys that will handle his kind of 'love.'

Initial Evaluation: No Cats PleaseFoster Parent(s:) Gene & Rosanne P
Ram is a special needs boy. He struggles with anxiety which makes him leery of unknown people and places. But once he accepts you, he is a very loving boy. He attaches himself to the point of not allowing other animals to touch his person.

He is up for adoption again because he was defending his person too forcefully. He might need to be an only pet. He has no experience at being an only, so would have to adjust to that as well as a new home. He will require much patience and understanding but the effort will be well worth it.

Ram kisses are the best! Ram is fine on all types of floors and does stairs with ease. He will crate when needed. He sleeps the night thru. He has good house manners only barking when needing to go outside and when he is uncomfortable with an unknown person.

He does tend towards women more than men and is most comfortable with children. He is not a counter surfer. He is a picky eater, most often leaving some breakfast and finishing dinner. Plain yogurt helps a lot; it’s yummy. Treats must be what he considers the good ones. He occasionally plays with toys.

He is a challenge to walk as there are things out there with which he isn’t familiar. He does have a no-escape harness for when he does leave the house. He is anxious in the car. Ram is very much a homebody.

Hello everyone, let me introduce myself I am Bri aka Bri Bishop. I had a pretty good racing career at Tri State in WV (53 races) and now I am looking for that so called couch to hang my racing silk.

I did have an injury to my leg that ended my racing career and had surgery on that leg. It is all healed and doing great. I had some minor surgery to remove one of the screws and that went terrific but they noticed that I had a heart murmur. I just had my visit to the cardiologist and they found that I do have a mitral valve that is not closing all the way, but it is not causing me any problems but I will need to see the specialist every year to monitor. I am on no drugs or restrictions.

I am a super sweet girl and would probably do well as an only as long as I have people to lavish me with love. I love the company of people. I will do well with other dogs once I get to know them...it takes me about 20 minutes to figure out that we are friends and than all will be great. I do like to play with toys and can be silly in the house. Everyone that meets me says I am stunning...whatever that means.

I am ready for that couch....do you have room for me??
