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 5 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

 

I am a super sweet, shy kinda guy just looking for that special couch to call my own….could that be with you??

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.

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.

Hi, my name is MJ Max Freeze aka Maxie. After a fairly good racing career at Southland (93 races), I had the honor and pleasure of birthing 7 wonder little future racers. They’ve all gone off to training so now it's time for me to retire to some wonderful person’s home.

Let me start out by saying I just LOVE people. I give kisses and nibbles and hugs and leans and will never let you forget how much I absolutely adore you. I want to do everything with you. If you do leave me, I cry for a few moments before settling down for a nap to await your return. I promise you will never be lonely as long as I am with you.

My cat test was negative – not cat safe and no chance of being safe. I also am not safe around small dogs. I take my training very seriously; chase small, fuzzy things.

In my foster home I have mastered steps and learned to take treats from the hand. I come when called as there may be a treat when I get to you. I already knew that I had to go outside to potty and was used to a dog door so that is a breeze, no accidents in the house. I am fairly good on lease and do relieve myself on leash with no problem. I do prefer being inside. I might go out with the resident hounds but usually turn around and come back in as I don’t feel the need to run and ram with the young ones.

I sleep on a dog bed thru the night in my foster parents’ bedroom. When it is time to get up, I give them kisses so they don’t oversleep. If kisses don’t work, I do get a little vocal, singing to them. Don’t want to waste a good morning.

I eat well but slowly, piece by piece, chewing each piece completely. Don’t want to have indigestion. Car rides are good because I am with you. I can jump up into the car but sometimes like a lift.

When a new person comes to visit, I plaster myself to them so they know how welcome they are. They can bring their hounds, but I only have eyes for the person. Plenty of time later to make new hound friends.

I did have a bath when I got to my foster home. I was a lady and stood very quietly for it. Haven’t really been very interested in toys or bones yet. Just give me a comfy bed and I’m happy.

So, what do you think? Do I sound like I could be your new best friend? I know you could be mine.
