Posted Breed: Greyhound. WHAT A BEAUTY Sneak Thru whose name is now "Roxy" was relinquished and here is her foster mom's update: Foster Update: "Roxy is a pretty little girl with the cutest freckled ears and softest white coat. She can be friendly and outgoing, but also knows how to settle down nicely and "chill". Roxy was returned after an incident with an 8 year old, so we are recommending that she not be in a home with children under 13 years old. Her foster mother has tested her in various situations (brushing teeth, taking away food, pulling her when laying down, etc) and Roxy has handled it well. However, Roxy would do best with an experienced greyhound owner who won't let her get away with too much. After an initial settling in period, Roxy has done well with the other greyhounds in the foster home. She is a good eater and has not had any accidents. Roxy has attended several Meet & Greets and has been a good greyhound ambassadog. Roxy would be a nice companion and deserves a home of her own." Roxy is 8 years old. ___________________________________ Original Posting: Sneak Thru whose name is now "Roxy" has an odd name but she's a real winner. She's not only striking in appearance but she's got a sweet, friendly personality. She's very friendly, outgoing and nicely interactive. She's a tail wagger and shows when she's happy. She's white with the cutest freckled ears that are soft and adorable. Sneak Thru is 3 years old and cat tolerant with supervision. One of the pictures below is Sneak Thru enjoying her spa bath after travelling for almost 20 hours from the JCKC track in Florida.

More About Greyhound Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      rescue
      Breed: Greyhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: Cherry Hill, NJ
      Posted Breed: Greyhound. Foster Update 1/20/2015 "Rooney was returned for a second time as the home she was in just wasn't a good fit. Rooney is a fun, active, inquisitive, kind of quirky little girl. She at times is very outgoing, yet at other times seems almost shy. Rooney loves to play with toys and has recently learned to "drop it" as she sometimes does not like to share. She can be a collector of items around the house, so its best to try to keep things you don't want her to get into put away. Rooney is a good eater, crates well, but at times still needs to be watched with her housebreaking. If you are looking for a little snuggle bug, Rooney is your girl." _____________________________________________________ TB's Rooney is a beautiful, sleek, dainty girl. She has an adorable prance in her step. She's very friendly, gives kisses, chitters and likes to bury her head into you--how cute is she!! She enjoys attention but not in a pushy way. Rooney is 2 years old and cat tolerant with supervision. 9/11/2014 Rooney was returned after 3 days due to absolutely no fault of her own and she is in a foster home and waiting for her forever home. Foster Update 9/16/2014 Rooney is a delightful two-year old girl (DOB 7/20/2012) and is perhaps the tiniest greyhound this experienced Greyhound lover has ever come across. I estimate her to be about 50 something pounds, though she is still gaining some needed weight. She is striking in both her dainty stature and shiny black coat. Her foster home includes three cats. She is curious about them, but is easily redirected from looking at them. We also have two resident greyhounds; she gets along with both and enjoys playing in our fenced-in yard with them. We also have two dog-friendly children, ages 9 and 13; she does well with the children and readily receives gentle pettings from them. Both adults in our home work full time. While we are at work, Rooney is crated. She goes in her crate easily and has had no issues with, or accidents in, the crate. At night, she sleeps on a dog bed next to our bed. She has mastered the stairs and our laminate/tile/wood flooring. She has made excellent progress in house living and manners and has learned that "pottying" is done outside on walks or in the fenced-in yard. Rooney walks well on a leash and enjoys her jaunts about the neighborhood. Rooney is an affectionate girl who loves the company of people. She has a warm, endearing quality and will make a loving companion to her lucky adopter.

      Breed: Greyhound
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Cherry Hill, NJ
      Posted Breed: Greyhound. Ponda's Outcast whose call name at the track was "Castor" is a very handsome boy who we all fell in love with. He's affectionate and takes direction well. He walks great on leash as he trots nicely beside his person like a show dog. He's a leaner and seems even tempered. He was described by the folks in Florida as "a nice, middle of the road boy"--we agree and were impressed with Outcast. He is 3 years and although he loves people, no cats, please. 10/25/2016 Inmate Handler Update: "I would adopt outcast for many reasons. One being that he is loving. another is that he is loyal. All of things that someone looks for in a dog.. He is also always happy to see me which adds to the reasons as why I would adopt him." Inmate Handler Update 1/13/2016 "Outcast is a great dog for many reasons: He loves to play; he can sit on command; and he gives paw. He does not like to be neglected and is always ready to cuddle. He does not use the bathroom indoors and is ecstatic from the moment you walk out the front door with him for a walk. Outcast would be a lovely addtion to most families."

Sunshine and Ace had only a few hours left in the shelter and we were asked to help them both. We are happy to be able to welcome Sunshine who is 3 years old. She was heartworm positive (as was Ace). They have both received treatment for the heartworm and are resting comfortably. Sunshine is ready for adoption. She is a very happy and lovable girl who is just looking for a family to call her own who will take care of her and love her. She is a playful, gorgeous girl. She was interested in the cat but only briefly and mostly to play.

He is a very happy and lovable boy who is just looking for a family to call his own who will take care of him and love him. He is a playful boy but calms down and wants to hang out. He was interested in the cat but it seemed more to play, so we are saying that he is cat workable.

The family loved him but their work hours have increased and Finnegan demonstrated separation anxiety while crated. He also has had several seizures which he is receiving medications to help control. He has been in a foster home since July 18 and is doing very well. This special boy would do weill with someone who is home a lot. We are treating his seizures and so far so good with the medication. Before placing him in a foster home, GFNJ had him evaluated at NorthStar. ___________________________ Original Posting BF Par Kim is one gorgeous, tall drink of water. He's a big love bug who is very friendly, playful and a good listener. He is a stunning boy who impressed us all and he's one of those "mooshy" boys.

      Posted Breed: Hound. Gracie is not a greyhound but she sure is cute. She was found along side of the road in Wilmington, NC and was nearly starved. She was taken into a shelter and is a loving and sweet, healthy girl. Unfortunately her time was about up and we could not say "no" to this adorable hound mix. She is very happy and friendly and loves to play. She was in a foster home in NC and was reported to be "sweet and loving, good with other dogs and house trained." Gracie is about 1 year old. This love bug wanted to play with the cat but was not aggressive with her.

      Posted Breed: Greyhound. SE's Flyinmoment who is now named "Patrick" was recently relinquished as the adopter's family was moving back home and the situation was just too stressful for the adopter and Patrick. In his former home, he was good with kids ages 9 and 12 and now in his foster home, he is with young children. The adopter described him as a "sweetheart" who is great on leash. He does have some seizures but is on phenobarbitol. Won't you consider this 6 year old sweet boy? New pictures to follow. Foster Update 6/15/2016 WE HAVE BEEN FOSTERING PATRICK SINCE HE WAS RETURNED TO GFNJ. HE IS A GENTLE GIANT THAT ONLY WANTS TO PLEASE. HE ENJOYS LEANING ON YOU FOR ATTENTION AND HEAD RUBS. HE GETS ALONG GREAT WITH OUR TWO OTHER GREYHOUNDS. WALKS WONDERFULLY ON A LEASH AND LOVES TO RUN IN THE YARD. THIS GUY LOVES HIS TREATS AND FEEDING TIME (WILL EAT 2 CUPS OF FOOD IN UNDER TWO MINUTES). PATRICK IS A SEIZURE DOG AND IS CURRENTLY ON MEDICATION TO CONTROL THEM. SINCE HIS TIME WITH US WE HAVE ONLY WITNESSED TWO SEIZURES. TRY NOT TO ALLOW THIS CONDITION MAKE YOU OVERLOOK THIS GUY. _________________________________________________________ Original Posting SE's Flyinmoment is a calm, good-sized boy. He's quiet and walks nicely on his leash. This handsome 3 year old is cat tolerant with supervision. Foster Update 8/27/2013 Flyinmoment is settling in nicely although he does make this bed look small. He is a tall and stately guy who loves walks and does very nicely on leash-no pulling. He is fine with our foster Yorkie as well as with our other grey, Bess. Steps outside the house are no problem but he is a bit awed by the inside 13 step staircase. Oh, well, plenty of fun on the first floor! He is available for adoption and will make someone very happy...is that someone you?
