Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester, NY is dedicated to matching the right greyhound with the right family. We prefer to select a greyhound for a family based on a family profile that is sent to one of the tracks that supply greyhounds to us. The kennel workers at the track know their dogs and are able to select dogs that are child friendly (we adopt to homes with children 5 and older) and cat friendly (please read this for an explanation of cat/small animal friendly) for those families that consist of children over five and cats or other small animals. They can also pass along to us personality and energy level traits that help us to make a good match. We want both our adoptive families and our greyhounds to get off to the best possible start.

Occasionally, we have dogs that are immediately available like the ones that appear on this page. Our adoption fee is $350 which includes: spay/neuter, dental cleaning, up to date shots, new martingale collar and matching lead and the "Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies", book. 

If you are interested in adopting a greyhound from us, go to the Forms section and fill out the Adoption Application application online or  download it and send it in or email us through the Contact Us link.

 Notes    Par Herby is a very active fella that will do best as a "only" hound. He is able to amuse himself; especially with squeaky toys! Herby will be 3 yrs old on 1/1/18, but still has the coordination and playfulness of a 1 yr old. He's a joyful & inquisitive hound and makes us laugh on a daily basis. Because of his exuberance and size, an active couple/family with teenaged kids and a fenced yard or large indoor play area (basement), would be best.
    He knows stairs, is not afraid of wood, tile or linoleum floors and is housebroken. He will need "walking on leash" work, as we haven't practiced that. He's quickly learned that he should not be jumping up to counters and is easily corrected with a firm tone of voice/sound. Herby is also a bit possessive of his sleeping space and toys. However, he doesn't have an issue if you take something away from him. People can take things away - NOT other dogs.
    He has loved everyone that's stopped by. Doesn't matter if they are male or female, he is not shy at all with people. Herby is food motivated, so he "should be" easy to train. Even though he loves his food/snacks, he is good when taking treats from your hands.
    So if you are an active family with a reasonably sized fenced yard and currently have no cats and no other dogs, Herby may be the dog for you!

 Notesa very happy, tail wagging boy. Very playful with other dogs and loves to run and play in the fenced area; affectionate with people, likes to lick your hands and give little kisses. Could use a little work with his leash walking but not bad. He comes highly recommended by his trainer. :) Squiggy will need a home with a fenced yard--although he's quiet in the house, he runs and plays hard outside and needs to be able to burn off that energy.

 NotesShe is not small animal friendly. She has a "likes to be in charge" personality, but gets along well with other (not small) dogs. She is in foster with 3 male dogs. She crates well. She would love a fenced yard. She is an all-around sweet girl! She was returned because she did not get along with the elderly female greyhound in her house. Her adoption fee will be reduced because she is a returned dog. Ruby is sweet & playful, but will not be pushed around.  She would be ok with other dogs or as an only dog.  She would do best with a slow-feed bowl.

 Notes DD is a lot of fun--more energy compared to the typical greyhound (she retired young, having come in last in several races. ;) She will need a fenced yard in order to burn off some of that energy several times a day. She loves all people and gets along well with other dogs--she'd love to have another playful dog to run with  and is very enthusiastic about toys. She also LOVES to play fetch, and is quickly learning how to give the ball back when she returns.  Definitely tested cat and small dog friendly.
