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.

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…Ram

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 is currently on an herbal formulation that has taken the edge off his anxiety making him much more comfortable with his surroundings and unknown people and places.

He is up for adoption again because he was defending his person too forcefully from his male partner and cats. He might need to be an only pet or be with a female close to his own size. Small dogs are questionable. Cats are definitely not an option. He has no experience at being an only, so would have to adjust to that as well as a new home. In his foster home, he has used the pack to determine if situations are “safe”. He will require much patience and understanding but the effort will be well worth it.

He does tend towards women more than men and is most comfortable with children. He hurries up to children with his tail wagging asking for attention. Unknown adults need to ignore him, leaving the initiation of contact up to Ram. Being on his herbal supplement, he will approach strangers on his own time. The trick is, don’t look at him.

Ram kisses are the best and are given out when he is feeling safe and comfortable. Ram is fine on all types of floors and does stairs with ease. He will crate when needed. He sleeps the night thru but does know when breakfast is to be served and will remind you if you happen to be a little late getting up. He also knows when dinnertime is. He has good house manners only barking when needing to go outside or when he is uncomfortable with an unknown person who is looking at him.

Ram is not a counter surfer. He can be a picky eater, sometimes leaving some breakfast, most often finishing dinner. Plain yogurt helps a lot; it’s yummy. Treats must be what he considers the good ones for him to take them from your hand. He occasionally plays with his single toy of choice. He very much enjoys running in the yard with the other hounds. He stands well for grooming as that feels real good.

Ram is very much a homebody. He does walk on leash but care must be taken 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 unless he has canine company.

Micro Chip: 992001144045
Initial Evaluation: No CatsFoster Parent(s:) Gene & Rosanne P
Hello everyone, let me re-introduce myself; I am Pepper aka Barts Quick Trip. I retired from racer having done pretty good in my racing career (103 races). I raced at Derby Lane and than Tri State in West Virginia. I say re-introduce myself because I did try living as an only hound and just couldn’t manage adapting to being an only. I need canine companionship. Sorry, no cats!

I am a gentle soul. I’m very quiet and well mannered. I don’t counter surf but will accept any treats offered. I keep track of my humans, following them where ever they go. I just stand at the door when I need to go out so you have to watch for me to do that. In my foster home, I do have access to a dog door but it makes loud clicking noises when it swings back and forth. That noise scars me as it sounds like the guns firing in the gun range close to my previous home. Wouldn’t go outside when those noisy things were going off.

I am very much enjoying the pack here at my foster home. I get to go outside and run and sniff and chase after the other hounds. I get so excited I spin as I run! I am also very well behaved on lease, you can lead me anywhere. I do well in the car as well. I have no trouble on any floor surface. Stairs are a breeze.

I have very good house manners, just make sure you watch for me standing at the door to go out. I sleep the night thru. I know my name and come when called. I am always available for any attention you wish to bestow on me. And if you might be considering me, look into my foster mate Ram. We are getting quite close. Maybe you’d like both of us, a matched pair!

Hello everyone, let me introduce myself my name is Pick Me A Winner but everyone calls me Smoke. I had a pretty good racing career (66 races) at Tri State, Wheeling and Soutland. I am super sweet but a little bit shy at first but that doesn't last long.


4/4/2022
Say hello to Foster Smoke! He's a 3.5 years old, friendly, outgoing, tail wagger. His first day is going well. He's not marking in the house. Not afraid of the vacuum. He is ready to explore and figure out living in retirement.
Does not appear to be a threat to a small older dog. He passed cat testing in West Virginia but failed here in Michigan so... 🤷‍♀️
The limp is from a break in the right rear leg treated and healed well enough to be released for adoption

Initial Evaluation: No cats or small dogs pleaseFoster Parent(s:) Chaise & Jenna S
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.

Froto is a special needs boy. He struggles with anxiety which makes him leery of unknown people and places. Once he is comfortable with his people he is a very loving and affectionate and will crawl up on the couch for cuddles or kisses. He might need to be an only pet or be with a female close to his own size.

He has no experience at being an only, so would have to adjust to that as well as a new environment and people. In his foster home he has used the pack to determine if situations are "safe". He will require much patience and understanding but the effort will be well worth it.

He leans toward women more so than men but in our foster home he has warmed up to his foster dad. Unknown adults need to ignore him, leaving the initiation of contact up to Froto.

Froto kisses are the best and are given out when he is feeling safe and comfortable. Froto is fine on all types of floors but should have some carpets laid about on hardwood. He can do stairs but is hesitant. He will crate when or if needed. He sleeps through the night perfectly fine and doesn't get into anything. He has good house manners only crying or shining when needing to go outside or when he is uncomfortable with an unknow person who is looking at him or approaching him. He does walk on leash, however there are things out there with which he isn't familiar or loud noises (i.e. construction) and will spook easily. He does have a no-escape harness for when he does leave the house and a Fi collar.

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