DOB: June 1, 2013 (4yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Red
WEIGHT: 65#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: TBD
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: TBD

Razz Berry is a sweet, sensitive girl. She is doing fine in an apartment- she is quiet and doesn't mind doing her business on leash. She is very cat-safe- she was actually afraid of the cats during testing.... Razz Berry will probably do best in a quiet, calm home.... She gets along very well with other dogs of all sizes, and settles in quickly in the right environment. The photo of her "roaching" was taken in her first day of retirement..... Greyhounds relax like this when they feel very comfortable.... This red-head is ready to be your Valentine... Put in your application today!
 





 



Emilee

<ADOPTION PENDING>

 

Racing Name: LR Emilee
Pet/Kennel Name: Emilee
DOB: June 28, 2016 (1.5yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: White & Black
WEIGHT: 50#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: TBD
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: TBD

Emilee is a petite 18 month old female- photos don’t do her justice. She has a beautiful, smooth, glossy coat- soft as bunny fur. She was not interested in running competitively, so retired before she even made it to the track ….. Emilee is a leaner & a lover who is very willing to please….. She really enjoys watching squirrels, munching on crunchy treats, and snoozing in Slumberball beds.

Emilee is in foster home with cats and other greyhounds-she has done great- gets along with everyone, and is more of a follower than a leader. This girl needs a forever home with another dog to keep her company & show her the ropes, and a fenced yard because she prefers to do her “business” in privacy. She is a great girl who is quiet, clean and low-key…. She’s just had all of her vetting done on 1/12/2018 and is now recovered and ready for adoption. Put in your application today!

WEIGHT: 79#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: No children due to sleep startle

Boaty is a dream boat! This gorgeous hunk was a Grade A top racer in Wheeling, WV. He was adopted for a few weeks, and then it was determined that he’d do best with a canine companion, a fenced yard, and a little space when he is on his bed sleeping. He is currently living with cats and another greyhound and is doing great! This guy loves to run in the yard, long walks, treats & squeaky, stuffy toys. Come out and meet him this weekend!

Becky is a beautiful & friendly retired racer and brood mama. She had several litters of pups- her last litter was born in April. Now Becky is ready for some pampering and a couch! She’s had her spay surgery and a much needed dental cleaning, so she is all set for a new home. Becky is housetrained and has mastered going up and down long flights of stairs. She does fine with other dogs, but is confident enough that she could be an only dog in the home. Becky loves kids, long walks, and car rides. She is fine being crated, but doesn’t need it- she is well mannered. Will you help this lovely lady enjoy her golden years & retirement?

Alvy

<ADOPTION PENDING>


 Racing Name: WV’s Alvy
Pet/Kennel Name: Alvy
DOB: 2/3/2015 (2.5yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Red
WEIGHT: 61#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes

Alvy has been released from her medical hold and is now available for adoption. She originally had an injury to her right shoulder at the track, which when cleaned out and biopsied in West Virginia was suspicious for a malignancy. Then when recovering from that, she was bullied and bitten in her left shoulder by some dogs at the racing owner's farm. All diagnostic tests (x-rays, fine needle biopsy etc) performed by our canine oncologist and radiologist are clean and Alvy has been cleared for adoption. It is recommended that the x-rays be repeated in 2-3 months, but that is fairly inexpensive and can be done by a general practice veterinarian.

Alvy is a darling little girl, with a silly curly q tail that is always wagging. Alvy has done fine as an only dog in her foster home.... She is friendly & outgoing- gets along with everyone! She especially loves children & men! Alvy is very well mannered for a youngster- she doesn't need to be crated. All she wants for Christmas is a forever home, and a stocking filled with goodies!
