We think all of our dogs are wonderful!  Please try not to "fall in love" with a particular dog's picture on our web site. We try very hard to match the RIGHT dog to the RIGHT home. Please trust our judgment in placing a hound with your family!

OUR DOGS WILL BE STAYING IN FOSTER HOMES UNTIL ADOPTED.  ANYONE INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT US

More dogs arriving soon….

<MEDICAL HOLD>

 

Tall, Dark & Handsome:

Charlie was an awesome racer, winning several stakes races. He then went onto stud dog duties at his farm in Kansas. GPA Lexington offered to help when he came down with a mysterious illness around 5/10/2018. His diagnosis is likely "Trigeminal Neuralgia." Once started on a course of steroids, he is now able to eat again, he's on the mend. This could be a life-long, autoimmune disorder that could relapse, or it could be a one-time issue that never happens again. The medicine (Prednisone) to treat it, is just a few dollars, so that shouldn't factor into finding a forever home.

Charlie is a happy, friendly guy who loves food, chew bones, toys, walks, people & other dogs. He's a wise, old soul who is going to make a great pet for just about anyone. He's gained 10# as of 6/20, and may gain 5-10# more. His dose of daily medicine has been cut in half, and he's done great. He'll get a neuter & dental in a few weeks, once he's weaned completely off his medicine. Go ahead and put in your application now, he won't be available for long.

 



Gandalf

 


Racing Name: NB's Gentlegiant
Pet/Kennel Name: Gandalf
DOB: June 24, 2012 (5yo)
GENDER: Male
COLOR: Brindle
WEIGHT: 82#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes

Gandalf has been in an adoptive home for over 3 years. He's lost his home due to no fault of his own- his family is moving and can't afford to take care of him any longer. Gandalf does everything right- he has lived with several cats, small dogs, and other greyhounds. He's friendly, and easy-going. He's obviously confused as to what is going on, but we promised him to find a true forever home this time. Please put in your application today- don't make this guy wait any longer.

 



Waverly

 



Racing Name: WV's Waverly
Pet/Kennel Name: Waverly
DOB: May 10, 2014 (4yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Black
WEIGHT: 54#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes



Waverly is a sensitive soul.... She just retired from 106 races at Tri-State track in West Virginia. She needs a home with a fenced yard for security, and privacy to do her business. Waverly will also need another dog to keep her company & show her the ropes of retirement. She's a bit overwhelmed any time her leash is put on, but her foster family is teaching her that means getting to do fun things like going for car rides, and shopping for treats & stuffies. Right now Waverly loves cuddling in her Slumberball, bouncing around with toys at home, and lounging in the grass. Give this sweet, sleek lady time, and she'll give you the biggest heart around.

DOB: December 29, 2015 (2yo)

COLOR: Black
WEIGHT: 60#
CAT SAFE: Yes

Tinker is one of those girls who has never met a stranger. She is only 2 years old- she's happy & bouncy- and her tail is always wagging. She is confident enough to be an only dog, but is doing ok living with cats and another dog in her foster home. Tinker will be great for someone interested in agility, obedience, therapy work, or bringing her to work with them.
