Yanni

Born: Dec/2008
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Hi folks. My racing name was Flat Out Yanni, but you can call me Yanni. One thing for sure, I’m flat out over racing and looking forward to being someone’s pampered pooch. I’ve seen pictures of adopted retired racing greyhounds lounging contentedly on couches and I want to join that club.  I’m flat out gorgeous and you’ll fall in love with me the minute we meet. Modesty is not in my vocabulary. If you’ve got it, and I have, work it, and I do. All kidding aside, I’m a sweet male greyhound that’s competing with other wonderful hounds for a good home. Liz said that I could take some dog biscuits with me as a dowry when I have a permanent home. WOO HOO!

Tony

Born: Oct/2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Tony.  I’m a small, light brindle male that’s dashingly handsome and nimble. You should see me play chase, throw and catch. I’m a master at the game, zig zagging hither and thither to snag the prize. No more running in circles for this greyhound - thank you very much.  It’s enough to give a guy a headache. I’m drooling over all the affection I get at the kennel, but can’t wait to find a crib of my own. It would be great to have a doggie companion. Doesn’t have to be a greyhound. I’m no snob. I’ll exchange butt sniffing with all breeds, although there is something special about a greyhound. Once you’ve lived with us, you can’t live without us.

Sheriff (now Jackson)

Born: Sep/2010
Color: Black Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Sheriff is returning to AGR through no fault of his own. He says, "Yes, someone named me Sheriff, probably due to my size. Please, no cracks. After the racing industry released me, I completed an application for future assignments. I listed Professional Pet, not Deputy." Sheriff is a large brindle hound that’s gentle and loving. He just needs a large doggie bed to his own and a family to spoil him. 

Violet

Born: Jul/2010
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m Violet. I’m a small brindle package that spends most of my time curled up on my raised doggie bed watching the antics of others, ‘cos I’m really shy.  My greyhound kennel mates are very sweet to me, and the volunteers love me, so I think my brindle petals will unfurl soon. Imagine, I could turn into a brindle sunflower! I’m hoping that whoever adopts me has another greyhound to show me the ropes.  Sheriff, one of our new kennel mates, Ooh la la.  Big Dog.  Hot Dog. Makes me kinda Swoon type of Dog.  Confidentially, I wouldn’t mind snuggling with this guy, but I’m too shy to tell him that I think he’s Super Dog and would make some lucky shy hound a great protector and playmate. Sigh! Oh well, guess I’ll check my email, Face book and twitter accounts for incoming. Could there be a message for me from you?

Ebony

Born: Jul/2010
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m petite, bouncy and sassy and my name is Ebony.  Unless you’re a dunderhead, and obviously, you’re not because you’re cruising this website, you’ve already fathomed out that I’m a black fox with two white snow wheels on the back end of my chassis. I love to play and I can outfox any breed at navigation strategy, thanks to my rear snow wheels. I can skid to a stop or turn on a dog biscuit before your computer can download emails. Eat your heart out Bill Gates!  Just a minute, incoming call. . . Oh, hi Bill. No of course not, I was just joshing around. No, no need for lawyers.  Only a dunderhead would think that a couch potato could out-run a computer application. Phew!

Vince

Born: Jun/2007
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a little reserved. My name is Vince. Like Mac, I’m a medium-size male but my fur is a gorgeous shade of red. If you put your hand flat on my cage door, I will sniff you, but it will take me a few minutes to warm up to you. The volunteer this morning talked to me in a gentle voice and I liked that. That is, of course, after she told Mac to ‘knock it off.’ I sure liked that! I have a raw spot on my nose from wearing a plastic muzzle all the time, but now that I’m with AGR, I’m no longer required to wear that silly thing. I like that even better. When I sleep, I dream of shredding that muzzle into bite-size pieces, loading them into a cannon, pointing the cannon south, and firing. I’m all over that. I said I was reserved not lacking in imagination. HA!

Ria

Born: Apr/2004
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a former brood Mom called Ria. I’ve just discovered toys and I’m over the moon. I could spend hours alone playing with those things. I was a good mom but, as the Lebanese philosopher Kahlil Gibran pointed out, I was merely the bow from which my living puppies were sent forth. I get it. I did my bit. They’re gone. Now it’s time for Mama to party. I’m very much like my sister Heather – she’s now in foster. We love to play, are very affectionate and gentle and adore cuddles. We both want to live with an amicable male greyhound, or two, as we’re big fans of ‘knights in shining armor!’ After all, you never know when a lady greyhound might need a little rescuing – not every pooch likes spiders! Female greyhounds – just like people - have secret femme fatal qualities that we draw upon when necessary. Please! We know how to bat our eyelashes to make the males do our bidding, and they love it!

Mac

Born: Feb/2010
Color: Black Tuxedo
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
AGR is beaming with pride to announce Mac has been chosen to participate in a very special program aimed towards helping PTSD veterans! He is in training with SSgt Lynn who is helping him accumulate the training hours he needs for his certification. Mac has been matched with his veteran; and, once he's ready, he will have the lifelong assignment of being the veteran's companion!  You can read more about Mac and Operation Wolfhound on Mac's special blog:  http://houndshelpingvets.wordpress.com/

Racing name: Mulberry T Mac

Hannah

Born: Jun/2010
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Initially shy, Hannah is blossoming into a funny, playful young greyhound. She loves her two greyhound roommates. A little on the mischievous side, Hannah enjoys rearranging bed pillows and hiding or chewing shoes. Good doggie proofing and house training will soon overcome these urges.  Hannah needs to be entertained, so lots of squeaky toys, chews and Kong’s keep her attention, most of the time. She is afraid to go on walks because of cars, and will rear up when they zoom by, so she does pull on the leash. Walking in a quiet area is advisable so that Hannah can be leash trained. She has not yet met kids, small dogs or cats. Hannah is a moderate barker, housetrained using a doggie door, and suspicious of the grooming routine which she usually avoids. Hannah knows her name and usually comes when called. Her timidity will lessen the longer she lives in a home environment with people willing to train her with love.

Tara

Born: Jun/2008
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Tara. Yes, of course, I hear you, with a name like that, I should be wearing a tiara. It would sure help boost my confidence as I’m a little on the shy side. However, I hear that everyone is practicing frugality these days due to the economy.  DRAT!     People who love greyhounds believe our breed is special, and they’re right. Once the racing industry releases us and we can retire, our dream is to become a professional fur companion. We are gentle, sensitive dogs that seek affection and want to bond with that special someone or special family. Our needs are simple: a good walk in the cool hours, premium chow, plush doggie bed, oodles of cuddles and nose kisses, loads of floppy squeaky toys, and the freedom to lounge on your couch. O.K. if you insist, we can lounge on a couch that you buy just for us!  We aim to please!

Molly

Born: Feb/2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Molly has puppy energy and loves to toss around fuzzy squeaky toys, and run with the hounds at play date. She is a friendly, affectionate dog that seems to like little kids and adults alike.  Like all greyhounds, Molly is inquisitive and kicks into this mode when her foster mom leaves her alone for a few hours. It’s best to thoroughly doggie proof the home until the greyhound knows the rules about ‘their stuff’ and ‘our stuff.’  Molly counter surfed and wolfed down three loaves of bread that were left out on the kitchen counter during her first week in foster HA!  Molly is healthy and no foods seem to bother her. She does show a lot of interest in cats on her walks. Given the opportunity, she would go after them, so she probably is not compatible with kitties. She would do best in a home with another dog, and where the adopter is not absent from the home for long periods.

Hailey

Born: Jan/2003
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Weight: 50
Status: ADOPTED!
Hailey is a loving and energetic black lab mix who would make an excellent only dog. Hailey is about 8 1/2 years old and weighs 60 lbs. She is house-trained with a dog door and does not show signs of separation anxiety when left alone. Hailey went through six weeks of doggie class, and has shown great strength in agility training and obedience. She doggie social skills are less than perfect, as she does not get along with other dogs. However, she absolutely loves people and melts the hearts of everyone she meets. She loves to play fetch, tug of war, and chase. She walks well on the leash, and is a great running and hiking buddy. Hailey loves apples and has a hearty appetite. She obeys the commands sit, stay, down, off, go lay down, and heel. She will be there to greet you at the door with a toy in mouth ready to play every time you come home.

Zorro

Born: Jun/2010
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
I must say, I look rather splendid in my fencing attire. NBC was looking for a slim, elegant male for the role of Zorro. Right up my alley.  I applied. I told them, my name is Zorro. I’m a slim, elegant male and I want the job. The casting director rolled his eyes, puffed on his cigar, and then burst out laughing. I was outraged. I had to protect my reputation. I donned my fencing attire, assumed the position and called him out – On Guard!  The cigar dropped from his lips and his eyes bulged as he stood up and faced me. Presumably, he’d never seen a greyhound sporting the attire, standing on two back legs and, using one front paw, splicing the air with a blade. I did look magnificent even if I say so myself. The casting director passed out. The ambulance was called. I was ushered out of the studio with a promise that they would call me for lunch. YEA – heard that one before.

Halo

Born: Mar/2009
Race name: Halo Busy Man
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Weight: 75
Status: ADOPTED!
Halo, Busy, Busy Man, whatever his name, he'll take it as long as you take him home with you.  Halo was retired because he was running too slow.  Halo walked very well on the leash and was easy to handle, which means he'll be quick to learn the new rules of a home-life.  His home though, can not have a cat since he was not-so-nice to them at the vet's office.  Halo is eager to learn more life lessons though!  Since he's still at the kennel, Halo has not been accepted into a home-program yet.  Is anyone offering a Master's in Couch Potato-ing?

Jewel

Born: Jun/2010
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Jewel is a smart dog and very much a puppy; she is not crated. She loves to play with toys, steal socks or shoes, counter surf, and snatch things off the coffee table. A verbal scolding keeps Jewel in line. If she gets too snappy during play, she’s told ‘No’ and she stops. After her first week in foster, Jewel thought Patches the cat was a toy and tried to pick him up in her mouth. Patches was not amused but did not jump off the couch; the cat realized that Jewel was not being aggressive. However, if Jewel went to a home with a cat, supervision and a dog-free zone for the cat would be a good idea until both animals get used to each other. On her walks, Jewel is friendly toward people but is unsure about children. Housebreaking is ongoing and Jewel is learning fast. She loves to walk and ride in the car. She responds to her name and ‘come,’ ‘off’ and ‘scoot.’

Bruno

Born: Sep/2010
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
I answer to Bruno. I’m a handsome, gentle giant, almost the size of a Great Dane, with a gleaming black coat. If you appreciate us big guys, I’m the one for you.  Imagine. A scrawny burglar squeezes through your fence with intent to pry open a window, enter your home, and steal all your hi-tech toys. As he squeezes his bony butt through the window, he meets me, nose to nose. I show my teeth and utter a deep growl as I lung toward the burglar. Petrified, the guy withdraws from the window, runs like hell across the back yard, and scales the 5’ fence. Fear can do that to a guy – it’s a better boost than coffee! See how useful a handsome giant like me can be to my adopters. When the TV cameras arrive, I’ll just bark, “Aw shucks, weren’t nothin’ ” as you hang a plaque on the front door: Burglars be warned - Bruno on Patrol.

Heather

Born: Apr/2004
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Fostering Heather is a breeze. A former brood Mom, she is a sweet healthy girl with a gentle disposition. Heather is fully house trained, uses the doggie door, and has excellent house manners. She is not crated. She is an early riser and nudges my cheek with her cold wet nose to wake me up and take her for a walk. She gets along well with my two greys and American Eskimo, and with other dogs that we meet on our walks. Heather is a little under weight but has a good appetite so she will quickly gain a few pounds.  She is very alert to bunnies scampering across the path on our walks, and her ears shoot up and morph into antennas as she tracks that furry critter through the brush. I have left Heather alone for a couple of hours with only the American Eskimo for company, without any problems. Heather has yet to experience an encounter with kids or cats!

Nicole

Born: Aug/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Nicole has a sweet temperament, is a quick learner, and gets along well with her greyhound roommate, the cat, and a Chihuahua-type dog. She is 90% housebroken. Nicole eats well and is learning not to countersurf. She is not shy around people, likes to hang out with her foster Mom, and only whines momentarily when the foster mom leaves the home. Nicole remains calm around cars and vacuums but has yet to experience a thunderstorm. She loves the car and her walks and barks very little. She’s not tolerant of crating. Nicole is healthy and no foods bother her tummy. She handles grooming well, knows her name and will come when called, and is learning commands: no, stay, O.K. Nicole will do well with people that give her a lot of affection and attention.

Monte

Born: Jun/2009
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Monte is a handsome, exuberant dog with the last shreds of puppy hood. Monte is slowly gaining self-confidence and will take a nap in his crate or on his doggie bed on his own. He is startled by loud noises and voices and doesn’t like to go outside in the dark. Monte is sharing living space with two other greyhounds and one mixed breed. Recently, he interacted with several doggie guests. Observation suggests that Monte will do best with dogs that are more than 60 lbs. He is learning about rabbits and javelinas outside the fence and, based on his level of interest, his foster mom suspects that Monte is not cat or small dog safe. Monte is crated – reluctantly - when he is left alone for more than four hours. Because he had a broken right rear hock, short walks work better for him. Monte would do best in a quiet home with another greyhound and a family or individual that is home a lot.

Clover

Born: Aug/2006
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Clover is a little shy and is still learning to navigate tile or slick flooring. Her adopter will need to work with Clover on this, reassuring her that she’s safe. Clover has not demonstrated any aggressive behavior but, as with all large dogs, care should be taken with small children, especially toddlers. She doesn’t seem to have any separation anxiety and gets along well with her four doggie roommates. She rides well in the car, rarely barks, and is house trained using a doggie door. Clover views her open-door crate as a safe place and sleeps in her crate at night. She is becoming a very playful girl, is learning to love toys, and responds to her name most of the time. No food problems or health issues have been observed and Clover tolerates grooming well. Clover’s foster guardians believe that Clover would not do well being left alone all day.

Walter

Born: Oct/2007
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a mature, mellow chap called Walter. Like Ranger, I’m tall - long legged you know.  I have a gorgeous red fawn fur coat and I’m sure I’ll enjoy being brushed to maintain my gleaming perfection.  As you and I sashay through the neighborhood, heads will turn, envious that your fur companion is such a handsome devil. And to think, all this beauty without botox.  I’m looking for a peaceful home with people that adore me. If you have another fur kid that would be super fine as I would like a companion. I’m saving my pennies to buy a Kindle. I’m learning to read and it seems to me that a Kindle is so much easier for a pooch to handle. Until then, I’m asking Liz to take me to the library every other week to check out a book. I’m currently reading Dick Cheney’s new book ‘In my Time – a Political Memoir.’ Mmm!

Reba

Born: Jan/2009
Color: White with black spots
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Reba is adorable and a quick learner, so says her foster mom. She’s cute and definitely still has some puppy energy and mannerisms. Her favorite toy is a blue ball with a squeaker that she carries around in her mouth. She’s not shy and can be left alone for a while without any major repercussions. She rides well in the car, barks moderately, and is practically house trained using a doggie door. Reba loves her walks but still pulls a little on the leash. She loves food, so she should be easy to train using food as the motivator. Reba does not tolerate crating!  She does have allergies, which seem to include wheat and environmental triggers, so she takes a daily antihistamine. Reba knows her name, comes when called, and responds to commands, “Go make” and “Go lay down.” This cute bundle can climb like a monkey, so potential adopters be warned; hide your sponges and don’t leave anything on the stove or countertops!

Bryce

Born: May/2006
Color: Light Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name if Bryce. I’m a small light brindle boy that barks a greeting to people that visit the kennel. I was told this morning that my bark is charming and friendly, not the least aggressive. While greyhounds bark infrequently, there are times that we bark to alert our humans that someone is at the door, or someone is walking close to our property. We like to think that you need to know these things. I swooned as soon as one of the volunteers told me I was gorgeous and kissed me on the nose. How awesome. It made my toes curl – and that’s when I realized that I needed a nail clipping!  Joking aside, I’m an affectionate, playful dog that will be over the moon once you adopt me and I have my very own plush doggie bed. I hear that marrowbones are available in the butcher section of grocery stores – YUM – good to remove tarter from my teeth.

Ashley

Born: Jul/2010
Race name: Gable Yo
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
Yo! Yo is ready to give you some greyhound loving.  He may look like Jane; it's because they are half-siblings.  Yo is excited about his new life but unsure of those little critters around him.  He must be thinking, "Green feathers?  What kind of greyhound has green feathers?  What a strange place."  Yo is young at 2 years old and needs a little help with his new surroundings, but is very willing to have you show him what retirement is all about.

Arnie

Born: Apr/2001
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Clementine and Ozzy rebound to AGR because their owner became seriously ill and could no longer care for them. These dogs need a permanent home together. They will not do well living apart. Clementine prefers to spend her time snoozing on her bed. She is not interested in playing with toys. She gets along well with her foster sisters. Clementine cries when her foster guardians leave the home but she is not destructive. Unexpected loud or unusual noises do not disturb her. She rides well in the car, barks very little, and is house trained using a doggie door. Clementine is not crated but the foster parents use a doggie gate to corral her when they are absent from the home. She enjoys her walks, is good on the leash, and tolerates grooming. Clementine knows her name, comes when called, and knows basic commands: ‘No,’ ‘Leave it,’ ‘Come.’

Vana

Born: Aug/2005
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Vana was a scared pooch when she first came to AGR. Now in foster, Vana is gradually learning that the outside world can be exciting and fun. She is living with two other greys and enjoys being one of the pack: she’s not an alpha dog. Vana remains shy but quiet, gentle reassurance will help her overcome her shyness. She is house trained without a doggie door. There have been no accidents or incidents of destruction in the house. Vana is not to be crated. When the vacuum is dragged out, Vana and her greyhound roommates disappear. Loud noises still scare her and she is not thrilled with ceiling fans, but has adjusted to them. Vana is healthy and eats well; no foods seem to upset her tummy. While still timid, Vana is not beyond countersurfing: she recently swiped a cooked chicken breast off the counter! As soon as she’s a little more confident with the world around her, Vana will make the perfect fur companion for the right person/people.

Reyna

Born: May/2009
Color: Light Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Reyna, our sparkling hummingbird, is friendly with everyone. She’s healthy and very playful, prancing around the house carrying toys in her mouth. Happy and go-lucky, we suspect Reyna has a smidgeon of May West in her personality. Not aggressive or territorial in any situation, Reyna can be left alone for a few hours without any problem. If your couch pillows are rearranged, Reyna is just exploring her interior designer aspirations. Our girl is adjusting well to the worldly loud and unusual noises. She enjoys her car rides, barks very little, and is house trained without a doggie door: At night, Reyna has the option of happily sleeping in her crate with the door open. She knows her name and the command ‘no’ and will sit upon hearing the word and hand signals. She can also navigate stairs! Reyna is a ‘roach Queen’ just looking for the perfect adopters.

Ranger

Born: Nov/2009
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: With Work
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Ranger. I’m a red fawn greyhound that’s kinda tall. Some say I’m handsome. I’m a little shy but the kennel volunteers are helping me to become more social. I’m learning that affection makes me feel warm and secure, and I soak up as much attention as I can get. If I like you, I will lean up against you so that you can stroke my ears and perhaps give me a hug around the neck. I really like hugs, especially if they come with a kiss on my nose. I need a strong connection with my human guardians so I will probably become a ‘Velcro’ dog and follow you from room to room. After all, I need to make sure that you’re not getting into any mischief. If you’re getting close to being out of line, your nether regions will receive a nosey nudge from me.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you. HA!
