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!

COVID-19 Notice
We are starting to accept out of state adoption applications, but it may take a bit longer than normal to coordinate the process.
Thank you for your understanding.

Dotty

Adoption Pending
Dotty-01 Dotty-01 Dotty-06
  • Racing name:
  • Vj Dontstartnow
  • Age: 1.5 (DOB 7/10/2020)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Yes

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 fostered fine with cats, and will be tested with small dogs, however will probably want to play with them. She might do best living with another playful dog, but has a big enough personality that she could possibly be an only dog with some patience.

At her initial checkup with WAG’s vet, our doctor discovered that Dotty has a heart murmur. After an after an echo (ultrasound of the heart), they found that Dotty has two leaky valves and her heart is enlarged. Our doctor has referred us to a cardiologist to try and determine the cause. Dotty is currently on medical hold.

Fire (FGF Eyes of Fire) is a super sweet, calm girl who just celebrated her fourth birthday on April 11th! She has a slightly weird walk that will be evaluated by our vet at her initial checkup.

Grey

Grey01
  • Racing name:
  • JMJ Ilyasova
  • Age: 4.6 (DOB: 9/5/17)
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Workable
  • Kids: 12+

Grey injured his toe which resulted in amputation. He returned to racing and injured the adjacent toe causing him to retire. At his initial visit with WAG’s vet, they x-rayed his foot and was found to have some arthritis built up in the adjacent toe to the amputated one. It’s not currently causing him pain so he does not require meds for it yet. Any potential adopters should consider giving him a joint supplement for life to keep that joint lubricated.

He is a laid back, 4.5 year old boy. He is related to Shiloh and Stella, who we adopted out about two years ago. Grey weighs in at 75 lbs.

Grey didn’t care at all about cats when we tested him, so he is cat safe! He also does well with calm small dogs, as the loud ones make him nervous

Boston

Adoption Pending
Boston01 Boston02 Boston03
  • Racing name:
  • No race name
  • Age: 11 (DOB: 4/1/11)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: No
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Yes

Boston is an 11 year old greyhound mix who was found as a stray in GA. After a little fostering while in GA, it was deemed she is not cat safe, but does great with other dogs in the house. She does so well, we think that she would benefit from having a playmate! But there is also no reason she couldn’t be an only dog. She does like to stay active and explore, so an active family would make her so happy! She is also accustomed to couch cuddling, so this has to be ok with her new family. She does not need a fenced in yard, but cannot be off leash outside of one as she does not have any recall.

Boston is house trained, crate trained and very social. She loves to give hugs and kisses too! She does need some leash manners, but is correctable. She loves treats too! Boston does not seem to know basic commands, such as sit or down, but is highly trainable!

Boston is pretty healthy for an 11 year old girl! Her bloodwork was perfect and she is heartworm negative. She has some lumps and bumps which were tested (and retested) and are fatty lumps and are not of concern at this time. She has wonderful teeth for her age and we are treating her for a mild eye infection which will fully resolve. She was very amenable to having her nails trimmed and a physical exam by our vets. She is spayed, up to date on core vaccines and her fecal was negative. Boston is eating a senior diet mixed with canned food at this time and needs to gain some weight. She is currently 38lb and would be ideal at around 50lb.

Boston can be adopted anywhere in CT and surrounding states (MA laws will need to be followed), so please contact us or your adoption rep to inquire!

  • PJ Outtheregrindin
  • Age: 6.4 (DOB: 12/18/15)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Yes

Zara is your typical brood– people oriented and calm. She had a litter recently and will need to wait two more months before we can spay her and officially adopt her out. We will test her with cats and small dogs upon arrival to Connecticut; we are unsure of either at this point, but expect her to not be cat safe.

Zara is the mom to some recent WAG alumni– Bo (fka Gazoo), Gunther, Gus, and Gia– as well as new WAG hound Gloria!

  • Racing name:
  • VJ Sister Sue
  • Age: 2.1 (DOB: 4/2/20)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: 12+

Gloria is mellow in the house, but loves to show her puppy side outside! She recently retired from racing and is looking forward to finding her forever home in Connecticut. Gloria is the fifth sibling from her litter to join WAG; siblings Bo (fka Gazoo), Gunther, Gus, and Gia have all been adopted through WAG over the past couple years! Gloria will need to be spayed and will not be available for immediate adoption. Her spay is currently scheduled for early July.

We will cat and small dog test once Gloria arrives, but we anticipate she will be cat workable.

Katty

Katty-01 Katty-02
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 2.2 (DOB 4/1/2020)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Workable
  • Small dogs: Workable
  • Kids: 12+
Katty is a 2 year old cow dog and will be looking for just the right home! When we first learned about her last year, she was quite the spook. Since then, she has come a long way and has come out of her shell a lot. She is still a bit of a spook at times and we will assess this further when she makes it to Connecticut.

Katty loves car rides and walks, and loves her humans once she bonds with them. Her initial cat testing in Kansas looks promising and we expect she will be cat safe, but will be tested in a foster home to confirm this.

Katty recently weighed in at 66 lbs. She loves to play so another playful greyhound will be a plus. This girl will run and jump around with the others all day long!

She will be joining us soon.
