Retired Racers

We have more dogs at the kennel that aren't up on our website yet. Be sure to contact our Adoption Coordinator Sue Hamma to learn more about those kids!

Currently, we have some young dogs at our kennel and we want to give potential adopters a heads up that even though they may be 2 years old, they are still very much puppies. Greyhounds are slow to mature, and so you may experience a lot of extra puppy behavior that you weren't planning on. This can include chewing, getting into things, some potty adjustments, and sometimes some playful mouthing. All of these can be corrected and should be. This can continue until they are 2 1/2 or even 3 years of age. Young dogs need a lot of exercise, so we need owners who have a home with a fully fenced backyard. They need room to run or that puppy energy can turn aggressive. They will grow out of all of this, but they aren't quite the calm, laid back adult greyhound.
