Adoptable Hounds

These greyhounds are all looking for their forever homes. Greyhounds in foster homes are available for adoption - they just have a head start on getting ready for their permanent homes! Please be sure to mention if you are interested in a specific hound on question 15 of the adoption application.

We're always bringing new hounds into our adoption program who are looking for their forever homes, so check back often.

Can't adopt right now? Why not sponsor an adoptable greyhound by making a donation?

Status: Available

Griff's Alpha sponsor is Timothy Wallace.

Griff is sweet, playful, loves toys, and wants to live life to the fullest! He is very lovable and doesn't seem to realize that he might be a bit large to be considered a lapdog. Griff is quite well behaved on leash, but will jump for attention and twirl when you least expect it, so his owner needs to be aware of that. He was sensitive when his paws were touched, but is generally a happy-go-lucky fellow.
