If you are interested in adopting one of the available greyhounds shown here, please contact one of our representatives listed above or on our Contact Us page to help you with the adoption process. For a general adoption guide, please check our Adoption Guide and for adoption requirements and general information about greyhounds, please check our FAQs

No description is provided for greyhounds who have just recently arrived at our kennel. In all other cases, where a description is given regarding behavior, and the results of cat, small dog and kid testing, the information provided is merely for guidance. Each dog may adapt differently in a different home environment, with other animals or children whose behavior is different. Please work closely with our adoption representative to help you pick the right dog for your home.

Cat Friendly Dogs - There are many people with cats looking to adopt greyhounds. If you do not have cats, we ask that you only consider adopting a dog that is not cat friendly. These dogs need homes just as much as the cat friendly dogs and we ask your help in reserving the cat friendly dogs for those homes that truly need them.

Apartments, Condominiums, TownHomes - GPI reserves the right not to place a greyhound under 3 years of age in a condominium, townhome or apartment, due to their expected energy levels and activity needs.

GPI also reserves the right not to place greyhounds deemed as high energy in a condominium, townhome or apartment.

EXCEPTIONS to these policies may be considered for a particular dog, but they must be pre-approved by the President (or his/her board of director’s designee) AND the applicable Regional VP.

We do not recommend picking a dog from its cute picture or color. Please choose dogs within your locality or within your driving distance. Being a volunteer based group, it is difficult for the organization to organize special transport of a dog from one end of our service area to another end. We make an exception for our Special Hounds.

Comments: Check is sweet, happy, friendly and loves being around people. She is still very active for her age and you would never guess that she is 10 years old. Check was a brood mom and would do best in a home without children. She occasionally likes to play with toys. She has done well with other greyhounds, but can be dominant. Although she has done well meeting small dogs, we do not recommend that she live with them full time. Check is just darling and will melt your heart.

Location: Foster home

Comments: Kiera is quiet, sweet and well behaved.  She loves her meals and her favorite Mary Greenleaf bed.  Kiera has been in a home before and was returned to us through no fault of hers.  Kiera was an only dog in her previous home, but she may need the company of another dog.  She gets along well with the other greys in her foster home.  Kiera is very timid with children and has nipped a young child, so we do not recommend her with children.  Kiera tested as very trainable in our cat testing, but has never lived with a cat. Foster home update:  Kiera is a wonderful, sweet and funny girl who has a very dainty way of walking.  She has excellent house manners, enjoys car rides, and going for walks.  She has a good appetite, but is not very food motivated. She will make an excellent addition to a household without young children.

Comments: Lady has become a kennel favorite.  She is a brood mom and is now, well deservedly, retired and enjoying life. Lady is very playful and loves the stuffed toys. She is friendly, easy-going, playful and delightful. Lady will truly melt your heart - just a wonderful, wonderful lady! Lady will need a home without kitties. Lady and Zora are turned out together and do very well together It turns out that Lady and Zora are sisters! No wonder they look so much alike!;Foster home update: I have the distinct pleasure of fostering these two (long-lost and recently reunited) sisters. Zora had been in a home before but for Lady it is a new adventure. They had a ball running amok in my yard and they are really a team. The doggy door was conquered without any help from me ;-)) They blend into my pack seamlessly and have adapted to home life beautifully. They ride well in the car (I think Lady would like to try driving) and are great on a walk. They are a pair and need to stay together. What sweet girls!  (In the second photo, Lady is standing behind her sister, Zora.)  Lady and Zora were our June Dogs of the Month!!

Comments: Little Bit was in a home with Sunny and returned through no fault of hers. Little Bit is a petite, beautiful black girl. She is full of vim, vigor and vitality. She loves, loves to play. She would love a play mate and tries to get the other greyhounds in her foster home to play with her. She is smart and knows how to use the dog door. She loves toys, but can be a little rough on them. She is an active girl and may do best in a home without young children.

Comments: Pride is a beautiful girl, but on the shy side. Once she knows you she is friendly and sweet. She will need a home with another more happy-go-lucky dog as a companion. Pride did well in her small dog testing, but has not lived with small dogs. Because of her shyness we do not recommend her with young children.  Foster home update:  Pride is a very sweet girl and is doing great in her foster home, though she is still shy and nervous. She is hesitant of her foster dad, and sometimes of her foster mom but they are working on that with some improvement. Surprisingly she learned the dog door right away and wasn't the least bit afraid of it. She gets along with all the other dogs very well in her foster home, both male and female.

Comments: Retro is an absolute sweetheart.  She is a retired brood mom.  Retro is just a love and adores being around people.  She does have a slight stubborn streak, but is just a joy to be around and is grateful for anything done for her.  Retro will need a home without cats.  Retro has some eye problems and has about 70% of her eyesight.  The eye specialist has her on some drops that she will need for life, but they are fairly inexpensive.  Because of some loss in sight, we do not recommend Retro with children who may startle her with their sudden movements.  Retro did well in her small dog testing, but has not lived with small dogs.  Retro will just melt your heart – she is just darling.  Won’t you give this beautiful girl her forever home?

Comments: Rose is friendly, outgoing and upbeat. She is sweet and affectionate and a real leaner. She loves being hugged and is a real kisser. She is a fun dog and absolutely LOVES toys. She is one happy girl! She walks well on leash and just loves her daily walks. Rose will need a home without cats or other dogs. She does well meeting and greeting other dogs (large and small) when she is out and about, but with her toy and food possessiveness it would be best if she lives in a home as an only dog. Rose should not be in a home with children as she can be toy and food possessive and when she gets excited she may accidentally bowl young kids over in her exuberance. Rose was in a home for a short while. Her family just adored her and she generally did well with the other small dog in her home, but the toy and food possessiveness became difficult to manage with another dog in the home. Rose has learned a lot about giving and taking food and toys gently and has improved greatly. She will need someone who can continue to work with her on this. Rose is ok as an only dog, with some gentle guidance. She knows how to do stairs. This girl is just a love. Won’t you give her her forever home?

Comments: Sunny was in a home with Little Bit and returned through no fault of hers. Sunny is beautiful. Sunny is very sweet, loveable and loves attention and to cuddle. She is good with toys and loves walks and car rides. Sunny does not like to share, so would do best in a home where she is the only apple of your eye or one other greyhound. Sunny does ok with other greyhounds, but not other dogs. She will need a home where someone is home a fair amount of time, although she has been left for 6 to 7 hours at a time. She will also need a home without cats or children. Won't you give this beautiful older lady her forever couch?

She is an active, fun, delightful girl, but she can be possessive of her toys (we are working with her on this), so we do not recommend her with young children. Tarnie will need a home without cats and is not suitable for an apartment/condo/townhome.

Comments: Tika is the most darling little girl. She is affectionate, happy and will just melt your heart. Tika was returned to us in not very good health. Tika has a myriad of health issues, but is such a happy soul. Everyone who meets her just loves her. And she has been so good through all her vet visits and treatments. Since her return she has been diagnosed with Babesia and Valley Fever. Kennel Update: We are treating Tika's Babesia and her Valley Fever. We are also working with a Health Touch healer, an acupuncturist and chiropractor to help her. We are blessed to have so many of these individuals donate their services or part of their services and so many volunteers being willing to work with her as well. We are slowly getting some weight on her. Her medical expenses are still quite large, as you can imagine. Won’t you help us help Tika by sponsoring her. MEDICAL HOLD

Comments: Venti is a quiet, friendly girl once she knows you. She is playful and too darn cute with the toys. She is learning to be affectionate and is quite the leaner once she knows you. She has the most beautiful eyes that just melt your soul. While Venti is not for the first time dog owner, she is oh so darling and whoever adopts this wonderful girl will be rewarded ten fold. Venti did not come from the US racing circuit, but is definitely a greyhound. We are not sure how she will do with other dogs and will be testing her with various dogs over the coming weeks. Venti will need a home without small dogs, cats and children.

Comments: Wanda is a shy nervous girl. She will need a home with another happy-go-lucky, more confident greyhound as the companionship of other greyhounds makes her feel more comfortable. She does particularly well with the more playful, easy-going greyhounds. Wanda did well in cat testing, but with her being so shy, it is hard to say how she would be once she settles in and is more comfortable. Once comfortable she is quite playful. Wanda will need a home without children. Children frighten her and she is easily startled by them. Kennel Update: With people she knows well, Wanda is now coming up to them and will accept some loving. She does really well with the more playful, easy-going dogs and will run and play with them.

Comments: Zora will just melt your heart. She is an absolute sweetheart. Those eyes and that face are just too adorable for words. Zora has lived in a home for the last approx. 7 years and was turned in to us through no fault of hers. Zora is gentle and happy. She absolutely loves to play with tennis balls and she loves walks. She has lived with another greyhound, but he passed away two years ago. Since then she has been an only dog, but has not often been left alone. She does fine with other dogs out on walks, but has never lived with a small dog. She does well at turnout with the other dogs and she could be Lady's twin - it is hard to tell them apart. It turns out that Lady and Zora are sisters! No wonder they look so much alike! They are turned out together and do very well together. Zora needs a home without cats and is used to a house with a yard. Zora has lived with young children and did fine with them, although she was not allowed to interact with them too often. Won't you give this precious darling girl a forever home? Foster home update: I have the distinct pleasure of fostering these two (long-lost and recently reunited) sisters. Zora had been in a home before but for Lady it is a new adventure. They had a ball running amok in my yard and they are really a team.
