Adopt A Greyhound

Every greyhound needs a home, but not every home needs a greyhound. We do not adopt our greyhounds as first come first served; but rather, we make an educated and conscientious attempt in matching the right dog with the right home.

In an effort to match each greyhound with his or her best possible home, Arizona Greyhound Rescue has a multi-step adoption process that allows our volunteers to get to know potential adopters, and to provide the information and support necessary to ensure a successful placement.

Patrick

Born: Oct/2009
Race name: Hallo This Is It
Color: Black Greyhound
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: TBD
Small Dogs: TBD
Status: ADOPTED!
Patrick was a stray that was found in a Petsmart parking lot in Tucson. We think he was abandoned there and appeared to be with a German Shepard puppy, that went to another rescue. We determined that, at the end of his racing career in 2012, he was not placed with an adoption group but transferred to a trainer associated with Tucson Greyhound Park. We have no idea where he has spent the intervening years. He has been well cared for... his weight is appropriate, his nails are trimmed, his coat is healthy, and he is parasite free. He is a happy go lucky guy and has no signs of mistreatment at all. He is ready to find a new home where he is loved!

Montana

Born: 2012
Race name: NA
Color: Dark Brindle Lurcher
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Weight: 68
Status: ADOPTED!
Montana is a lurcher from the Ohio Lurcher Project. He is 7/8 greyhound and most likely 1/8 coon hound. He has been living in an underground racing community in Ohio. He has an excellent personality and is friendly and warm. What a genuinely nice boy.

Canolli

Born: 2015 (est.)
Race name: NA
Color: Fawn Mix Breed
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: Yes
Weight: 45
Status: ADOPTED!
Canolli is an honorary sighthound. She is 45 lbs and over a 1 year old. She is super sweet. Canolli was a stray found in Gilbert by a good person who took her in and got her healthy. Unfortunately the person could not keep Canolli because she was going after the neighbor's chickens. She cannot live with cats, small dogs or chickens, but would LOVE to live with YOU!

Thom

Born: Jul/2015
Race name: Parr
Color: Red Fawn Greyhound
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Weight: 56
Status: ADOPTED!
Thom is just a baby that joined the AGR family from Kansas. He was never registered with the NGA and did not race. He is very affectionate with people and adorable with a fox-like profile. And check out his pictures... he sits! Thom does better with a confident dog as role model. It takes time for him to acclimate to new situations. He has had parasites and is being treated. He will have another evaluation at the end of the month. We have identified a family for him and as soon as he is parasite free he will move to his forever home.

Race name: MV\'s Heredity

Avery joined the AGR family from a farm in Kansas. Her last race was in July 2014. She raced 68 races in her career. She is a darling little girl and is very intelligent and can open some types of gates. She is also very sweet and people centered. Avery had a bout of worms when she first came to us, but she is parasite free now! She has had a torn ligament on her right rear leg, but she has finished her anti-inflammatory meds and is now asymptomatic. Avery is scheduled for an orthopedic evaluation in March. Once she is cleared medically, she will be adopted by her foster family.

Born: Jan/2015
Race name: Keeper Adkins
Color: Light Brindle Greyhound
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: With Work
Weight: 64
Status: ADOPTED!
Challenger is from Alabama and just celebrated his second birthday in January. We recently removed Challenger from our Heartfelt Hounds service dog program. Although he had a great evaluation, he became too anxious at the training center. He is awesome in a home environment. He is playful, sensitive, and redirects easily. He has a high potential of living with cats and small dogs. He thrives off social interaction with people and other dogs. Challenger would love to find a forever home!

Color: Black Greyhound
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: With Work
Weight: 62
Status: ADOPTED!
Rose has joined our family from Alabama. Her littermate brother is Rav! She is a tiny little bundle of energy! She is a very active girl and can be overly assertive with the other dogs. She seems to be too pushy with cats or small dogs but that may resolve as she settles in to just being a dog. As we learn more about this happy girl, we will update her information.

Buttercup

Born: May/2014
Race name: Ricos Tazz
Color: Black Greyhound
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Weight: 56
Status: ADOPTED!
Buttercup is one of the new Alabama girls. She seems to be a bit timid but she also has her playful times. When she met a cat and a small dog, she sniffed them and then decided to avoid them both. We will update this sweetheart's information as we learn more about her.

Rav

Born: Sept/2014
Race name: Canaan Great Wall
Color: Black Greyhound
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Weight: 64
Status: ADOPTED!
Rav is from Alabama and happy to be part of our family in Arizona. His littermate sister is Rose. Rav is calm, quiet, confident in most situations, and people oriented. But he has a high prey drive and definitely cannot live in a home with cats or small dogs. He is also scared of hallways that echo, so he will need work adapting to that situation if he encounters it. More about this boy as we get to know him.

Housing: Foster
Cats: TBD
Small Dogs: TBD

Born: 2015
Race name: NA
Color: Tuxedo Whippet Mix
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: TBD
Small Dogs: TBD
Weight: 25lbs
Status: ADOPTED!
Kermit is a Whippet mix. He was rescued from Pima Animal Control where he had been removed from an animal hoarding situation. He is also under-socialized with people, so he will require patience. He would love to be in a home with another dog. Kermit is so precious. He loves to be touched and has the cutest eyes. He is being treated for valley fever and will require medication for at least 6 months, so he will be adopted as a special needs dog. If you would like to donate toward Kermit's care before he is adopted, we would be very appreciative. We are still stretched financially from the end of live racing at Tucson track, but we wanted to reach out and give Kermit a chance to find a home through AGR. Please use the "Donate" button above. And please be aware that any extra money left over from Kermit's care will go to helping our other hounds.

Simon is the only dog that has not found a home after retiring from Tucson Greyhound Park. He was a grade A racer but now he is such a happy-go-lucky boy. And he's a handsome blue brindle! He will probably not be able to live in a home with cats or small dogs. FOSTER UPDATE: Simon has mellowed out a lot and gets to enjoy every room in his foster parents' house, except the kitchen when they are cooking. He is walking on a leash better every day and getting used to the sights, sounds and smells around the neighborhood, He uses a doggie door and can go out at will. He really is a wonderful dog.
