Hounds For Adoption

Fill out an online application for adoption

At the moment, we are accepting applications from residents of Connecticut and surrounding states.

Additional fees and wait time may occur if you’re adopting into Massachusetts due to the state’s requirements.
In addition to a state-required isolation period which increases adoption wait times, dogs adopted into MA must be free of all internal and external parasites.
As a large majority of dogs coming to us have a resistant strain of hookworms, the wait time for a dog for MA applicants has increased.
WAG appreciates your patience and understanding as we do our best to follow these state guidelines.

Please email Adoptions@WeAdoptGreyhounds.org for more information!

We are starting to accept out of state adoption applications, but it may take a bit longer than normal to coordinate the process.

Zucchini was trained to race, went to the track, but just didn’t cut it, so she retired early.

She is very sweet, doesn’t know a stranger, and loves her people. We think she could be an only dog. No cats for her. Not small dog tested.

Boos

Medical Hold until ~March
Boos01 Boos02
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 6 Months
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Workable
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

Boos is the sweetest boy who was born at the end of May. He has been unfortunately overlooked and it’s mainly because of his looks.

Boos was bitten by another dog when he was very young, causing a defect in his muzzle. As a result, he was left with a large facial deformity, dental abnormalities, and damage to the growth plates which has caused a significant underbite and uneven growth of the left and right sides of his face. Although this defect currently does not cause him any trouble, it takes a special person to fall in love with him.

After his first veterinary visit, his vet knew he was special and contacted a colleague of hers, Dr. Baratt, who is a veterinary dentist in CT! After some emails back and forth, Dr. Baratt insisted he could fix this defect of Boos’ nose! Boos will also likely need at least one dental extraction. The dentist has been kind enough to donate his time and services, but WAG will still incur significant expenses to pay for the cost of the custom facial prosthetic, after care, etc. This will be a two part procedure, the first part happening on 1/21/22, the second will be 2/18/22.

Boos will be looking for the perfect puppy home in March after recovering from his procedures.

Boos needs an active home that will set boundaries. He can play rough, so if there is another dog in the home, they need to be able to tolerate that. He could potentially be an only dog. He is cat workable (as are all puppies) but it will take work to acclimate him to one. He needs puppy training on all aspects – he isn’t 100% crate trained yet, he needs leash training and working on manners. He knows his name, so we would require he keep it. Also required are frequent updates to us and the breeder, so preference will be given to those with social media accounts who will actively update us on his progress. He is not for first time greyhound or dog owners.

Collin

Collin-01
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 1 (DOB 9/3/2020)
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Pending
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

Collin is super sweet, a total lover boy and happy to be with any person that gives him attention. He is fast and loves to run. He does well with other greys, should be small dog friendly, but I’m not sure he will be cat friendly but maybe workable because he is extremely smart. Should be fine as an only dog with the adjustment of being alone since he is young and hasn’t been.

Collin is also the littermate brother to WAG Alum Groot (fka Cain)

Dotty

Dotty-01
  • Racing name:
  • Vj Dontstartnow
  • Age: 1.5 (DOB 7/10/2020)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Pending
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

Dotty is super friendly, sweet with people, and fine with other dogs though she is ornery and can play rough so the other dogs should probably be plenty playful. She is usually calm inside but outside she will go go go. Not a fan of cold and will give you the looks to let you know she isn’t happy about it. She’s got plenty of facial expressions.

She may be workable with cats and small dogs, however will probably want to play with them a little to rough more then anything. We currently believe think she would be best with another playful dog.
