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.

 Arrived
 10/09/2016
 Color Black
 Sex Female
 Birthday07/14/2014
 Weight (lb)68
 Cat Friendly? No
 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.

 Notes Woody is a young active greyhound. He is exuberant, curious, social, and affectionate and will climb in your lap if you let him. He is curious about exploring his new environment and follows his two greyhound mentors closely. He is learning to walk on lead and takes corrections well. He is a beautiful greyhound who will be an excellent companion for his new
family. Woody needs a home with a fenced yard.

 Arrived

 Color  Black
 Sex  Female
 Birthday 10/01/2012
 Weight (lb) 61
 Cat Friendly?  No
 Notes From one of the racing kennel workers: P Kay Pat was in my kennel at Pensacola!! I had most of the litter!! Pat, Patio, Pickle and Place. The whole litter were extremely nice dogs! Pat loves milkbones, marshmallows, nutter butters and vanilla wafers. She will turn completely upside down for her belly rubs too!!

From her first foster home: P Kay Pat is friendly and outgoing and greets you with kisses and a helicopter tail. She loves to throw toys up in the air and play fetch with herself. She is the only fresh off the track dog I have ever cared for that stayed in the crate the first night with out a peep. She continues to crate well day and night. This playful and confident girl could be an only dog but also gets along with my mellow male greyhound. We are working on her counter surfing; she is getting better about that. Should go to a family with no cats or small animals.

From her current foster home: P Kay Pat is a very curious, outgoing, and super friendly girl! She gets along great with our two other greyhounds and does really well around children. She does fine with other medium to larger sized dogs as well, as she has met several of the other neighborhood dogs out on our walks. She greets everyone with a wildly wagging tail and of course some kisses! She loves to have toys thrown up in the air for her, and to race around the yard but she also really likes lounging in the grass. She will turn upside down outside and inside and wiggle around with happiness, which makes us laugh every time! She does really well on leashed walks and she is a champ at doing stairs! She is a great swimmer too, we brought her to the family cottage over Memorial Day weekend and she went right in the water for a swim. She is learning what she should be playing with, and what she should not be, like her toys versus tv remotes/socks! Her counter surfing has pretty much stopped. She crates well, she is crated during the day and then we have been having her sleep upstairs with us, not in a crate, but with the bedroom door closed and she does really well. Travels well in a car, she is very agile and a bit slippery so be careful because she will end up in your front seat before you know it! So if you get out of the car don't leave your front door open!! Overall P Kay Pat is a sweetheart and a joy to have around, she will make you smile and laugh with her playfulness and I'm pretty sure she is down for lots of adventures!
NOTE: P Kay Pat is rated no cat and as such should not live in a home with cats or small dogs.

 Color  Black
 Sex  Male
 Birthday 12/03/2013
 Weight (lb) 74
 Cat Friendly?  No
 Notes Our foster greyhound "Hulk" has a perfect temperament. He is smart, curious, social, and very affectionate. He assimilated into our home immediately and gets along well with our two resident greyhounds. He is very good with the neighborhood children. He walks nicely on lead but not always in a straight line. He has a high prey drive so is always alert for small critters. He enjoys riding in a car and considers it a special treat. He uses his crate willingly especially if there is food involved. 

His fur is mostly black with white accents on his paws, chin, and the tip of his tail. 

He is a wonderful companion greyhound who will only get better as he transitions to a loving home of his own.

 Notes Poker is a bright, friendly boy who loves toys and wants to investigate everything he can find in the house and outside.  He's getting along fine with all our other dogs (even our snotty Galgo).  Hard floors are not a problem for him.  He does seem to be very food motivated--he needs to learn that not all food (including stuff on the counters) is his to sample!  He crates well when we're here and we've also crated him for a few hours when we've gone out. He's a leaner--loves to be near people and loves attention.  He's very quickly becoming more mellow as he realizes the rest of the pack is sleeping all day--he'll even go into and sleep in the crate without being forced to.  He tends to make weird noises when he hears unfamiliar noises--little growls and yips and whines. He's crating fairly well for several hours at a time but is a anxious for awhile after we get back--he would probably do best with other dogs around.

 Notes KB is a sweetheart, very people friendly, a bit of a jumper (if you turn your back and ignore him, he settles down) and inquisitive. He does crate, but would prefer not to.  He needs chewy toys and  stuffies, as he's playful and if bored may try to chew other things.  He will do best with a playmate and fenced area.  He loves to explore the grounds. He's not a bit shy & will do best in a pack.

 Notes THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING FOR THE SIGHTHOUND UNDERGROUND.
A volunteer who works with both GAGR and SHUG is fostering Palin in our area; applications for Palin MUST go through SHUG (see the link below). GAGR cannot process applications for her.

Palin is a lovely seven-year-old Greyhound brood mama who gets along with humans, dogs, and cats. Palin is currently fostered in the Rochester NY area, but is available for adoption throughout the US and Canada. Her adoption fee is $300, which covers her travel expenses to SHUG, spaying and other veterinary care. If you're interested in adding this lovely lady to you pack, the first step is to fill out an application at http://sighthoundunderground.com.
