• You will be adopting the BEST OF THE BEST in former racing Greyhounds.
  • The prison Greyhounds have been through a rigorous 10 week training period which teaches them to perform these tasks on command:
    • Hurry
    • Let's Go
    • Kennel
    • Release
    • Wait
    • Heel
    • Here
    • Sit
    • Down
    • Stay
    • Bed
    • Jump/Off
  • Some learn additional commands ie "lap", "paws up", "shake", "bow", and one recently learned "high five".  We also have one in the program who is bilingual.  He knows his commands in Spanish as well as English!
  • You will gain a new Greyhound best friend that will forever change your life.
  • We strive to ensure the "perfect fit" of your new Greyhound into your family lifestyle.
  • Your Greyhound will be socialized into home living through this unique foster care system.
  • Those Greyhounds fostered and trained in the prison system will be trained to pass AKC's CGC (Canine Good Citizen) testing, however, it is up each individual adopter to test their Greyhound to acquire this certification.  SCG does offer CGC testing on a regular basis through a certified AKC tester.
  • You will have an opportunity to perfect and hone your ability to implement the commands learned by your Greyhound while in our prison program through a "Train the Human" class offered quarterly.  We also offer a training video to all new adopters.
  • He will make you proud of the way he does all of his obedience commands.
  • Your Greyhound will become a part of the media campaign promoting these prestigious Greyhounds to the American public via television and the media-nationwide.
  • Your Greyhound will be registered in our Wayward Hounds™ database. If he or she is lost, you will have a network of volunteers dedicated to finding your four-legged friend.
  • Your Greyhound will be microchipped and registered with a HomeAgain™ microchip. Registration includes a year's membership in the HomeAgain Pet Recovery Services program plus life-time registration of the microchip in the HomeAgain National Pet Recovery Database.
  • While our Greyhounds are trained in Basic Obedience, they are not service animals and should not be represented as such.  Additional training outside of basic obedience is required to obtain those certifications. Please refer to ADA requirements as provided by the US Department of Justice.
  • It is illegal to represent that you require a service animal, unless you have a disability requiring such a dog. A Service Dog must perform a task to assist a person with a disability.

If you are interested in adopting one of our Greyhounds, please complete the adoption application and a representative will be in contact with you within 48 hours.
