Available Greyhounds

This will give you a quick look at most of the dogs in the AAGI program.  Adoption Fee: $350.

NOTE: We attempt to keep this page as up to date as possible, but a hound may be considered placed before its status is changed to – Adoption Pending here.  

Cat grades are determined by judging the prey drive of the greyhound when exposed to small fluffy things. We grade them like a report card from A (meaning they have no interest at all) to F (meaning they are drooling). In general, a D or F dog is just shown as NO CATS.  Please keep in mind that a kennel dog has not actually lived with a cat.

“XTREME (Zeus)” – Our Hound of the Month!
XtremeFullXtremeFace
Name: Xtreme
Age: 3 years 9 months“04/16/2013”
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Weight: 72
Cats: C
Racing Name: Cocz Xtreme
Reason Retired: Slow
Available: Now “06/24/2016”

Xtreme was adopted two days off the Tucson racetrack during the frantic period of placing hundreds of hounds when it closed, but was recently returned through no fault of his own because his family didn’t have time to work with him to learn how to be a good pet. Xtreme is quite a sweet boy, and a little clumsy and attention deficient! But that doesn’t stop him from being happy all the time! He also loves to give kisses! He has been residing with other dogs in his current foster home. He fancies himself as a guard dog on occasion and will bark sometimes, particularly when outside and hears something unfamiliar, or when he thinks something is wrong. He is very smart, learns quickly and responds well to correction. He needs rules and consistency and is at his best when he is provided with ongoing reinforcement for good behaviors. Xtreme wants to please, and will do best in a home with either adults only, or a family with older children, who can provide him with the routines and house rules that bring out the best in him! He will make a wonderful pet for the right family! He cannot be placed in homes with either small dogs/cats or small children. Could you be the right family for this handsome guy?

“RAZOR”

Name: Razor
Age: 4 years 4 months “09/23/2012”

Gender: Male
Weight: 70
Cats: NO Small Animals
Racing Name: Bob’s Razor
Kennel: Guimond
Reason Retired: Slowed
Available: Now “03/25/2016”

I’m a nice looking brindle boy with gold eyes. I’m one of the last hounds from the Tucson track when it closed. I lived in a home for a short time, but was returned because I wanted to play too roughly with the chickens in my adopted home! I’m simply too interested in small animals to live with them; they look a bit too much like toys to me. I’ve learned the dog door at my foster home! I would be best in a home with people around most of the time. I can be a bit dominant with other hounds, so I might do best being someone’s only baby!

“WINDY”
windyfullwindyface
Name: Windy
Age: 4 years 5 months“08/03/2012”
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Weight: 70
Cats: NO Cats
Racing Name: Windz of Change
Reason Retired: Slowed
Available: Now _“11/18/2016”

Windy is a handsome, laid back, very mellow boy who relishes his time relaxing on a comfy cushion. He takes retirement seriously! He does love to go for walks, too, and handles great on leash. He’s a bit reserved when he first meets people, but quickly comes out of his shell, especially if you have goodies! Windy is house-trained and learned the doggie door quickly. Windy does like to give hugs and wants to climb up on his people at times, seeking cuddles, whether you are standing or sitting; his foster dad is working on discouraging this behavior. Windy can be a bit mischievous at times, but not destructive. He is just curious about everything as he learns about his new world living in a home. He currently lives with another greyhound in his foster home. He would do best in a home with another medium or large dog as a housemate, or with a family that has teenage children. Are you ready to add Windy to YOUR family?

I’m a pretty black girl with a funny name.  It’s pronounced “Ashleen”,  but you can change it to whatever you want.  I like to eat and eat and eat.  I’ve been a good quiet girl and a bit shy so far but I love my dog beds.  Did I mention I like to eat?  You may have to set some boundaries for me there.  Oh, and I just learned how to use the dog door.

I’m a young, shy but affectionate little girl.  I like to play but give me some space to do it.  I am not interested in toys but I want to play (nicely) with my two small foster siblings.  I like car rides and going bye byes!

I have a couple obvious rough spots on my nose, belly and buns but nothing a little TLC won’t take care of.  I’m pretty quiet and reserved so far.  I think the cat is a bit odd but my two greyhound foster-siblings are more what I’m used to.  We walk together and get along just fine.

I’m cool as a cucumber and as sweet and affectionate as can be.  I enjoy meeting new people and even small dogs for some reason.  I run, I sit, I play with toys.  I love to be loved.  What more could you ask for?  I’m currently hanging out with my foster brother (Tommy) and we’re learning to use the dog door together.  I can get up on the counter just fine but my foster mom doesn’t want me to for some reason.  We’ll have to have a talk about it later.  In the meantime I LOVE to sleep in dog beds.  I still mark some and pull on the leash but maybe I’m being a little competitive with Tommy.  Mom thinks I learn quickly so we’ll see how that goes.

I made a real good impression on my foster parents in my first couple of hours.  I figured out the dog door and haven’t marked or had any other kinds of accidents in the house.  I eat well and slept all night in my crate without so much as a peep.  I might be the first foster hound who ever let his parents sleep in!  I dug in the toy basket but couldn’t find “the good stuff”.  Maybe they keep them somewhere else.  And Squirrel!  Did I mention I’m a little ADD?  Well, I’m just happy being me!

My foster brother (Panama) and I are trying to get our stomachs settled after the stress from moving into a new home.  I’m a little high-spirited, sweet and affectionate.  I enjoy meeting new people.  I’m trying to learn the dog door and may be a counter-surfer at heart.  I do LOVE dog beds and even performed my first Roach as a retired racer!  I did mark a couple times in my foster home but I think I’m over it now.  The only reason I pull when being walked is you’re not walking fast enough but I’m learning.

I’m smart and sweet.  I can climb stairs and almost have the doggie door figured out.  I even gave roaching a try.  I’m just a very mild girl who will eventually make a good lap puppy if you’ll let me.

I’m a little timid with people and curious, but I’m a sweetheart and a big-time cuddler.  I’m mildly curious about the cats but I ignore them for the most part because they’re, you know, cats, and they spit at me which hurts my feelings.  I love warm, sport spots and I’d rather not leave them.  I also love belly rubs and yogurt.  I mean, who doesn’t?

“MARVIN” – Adopted 1/22 2017

I’m a big, beautiful red guy with no interest in small animals like chihuahuas and cats (though I’m not currently fostered with cats). I do have a need for my personal space especially with strangers and will growl if you get too close for my comfort. For that reason I would not be suitable for a home with children under 16 and the adults would need to honor my space.

I am a curious, happy little girl! I am very smart and taught myself how to use the doggie door in my foster home. When I am very happy and excited about something, I make cute little chattering sounds with my teeth! I get along well with other dog breeds, although I do play hard and can be a little scary for smaller dogs. I don’t want to hurt anyone, I am just too playful, and sometimes don’t know when to stop! I would do great in a home with another medium or larger dog as a playmate.

I’m a gorgeous black tuxedo boy with high white socks. Like many boys I am sweet & friendly! In foster I’m doing great on my walks and learning to get along with the other hounds there as I’m a bit on the dominant side so far. I’m still so young & a bit of a item collector so anything really valuable will need to be kept out of my reach. I’m great in a crate and even was “roaching” on my 2nd day! My foster thinks I’m pretty darned good so far, all factors considered.

I am a very handsome boy and quite a lover! I simply adore affection and put my head on my foster Mommie’s shoulder to be petted. When I’m excited I chitter (vibrate my teeth) and nit (give little love bites). I’ve been making the PR rounds and have done excellent around a variety of dogs. I live with the “test cat” and of course do well with him. I’m looking for someone who will love me a whole bunch!
