Dora – 4/11/14 – This brindle sweetheart has been spoken for.  She will spend her days in Stevensville.

If you are interested in adding a greyhound to your family please contact us.  If we know someone is looking we will take note and if there is a haul coming our way we might be able to get a dog for you.  Sometimes an adopter has to give up their hound and it just may be the perfect family member for you.  Keep in mind that often a dog doesn’t even make it on the web site.  So the first step to adding a greyhound to your family is to let us know you are looking.


RAINY – DOB 1/14 – Rainy is the baby of the bunch at just a little over a year.  She is a very pretty big brindle girl.  She weighs in at 73 pounds.  She is great with other dogs but is iffy with small critters.  This girl is winning our hearts with her playful and sweet ways. 


HONEY – DOB 8/13 – What else could you call a girl this sweet but Honey?  She is a really pretty light buckskin color with black on her tail and face.  She is a bit submissive but she really tries to do everything right.  Honey passed her cat test.  She is a large female at 72 pounds.


RUSH – DOB 7/13 -   Rush is slightly timid at first but she is ready to take over your heart and couch.  She is a rich red color and her eyes are lined with black and almost hypnotic.  She is a gorgeous little girl tipping the scales at just 54 pounds. 


TANK – DOB 7/13 He is a big sweet baby.  He is happiest when he is wrapping his people up in his lead or going between your legs.  He is playful and has been great with the other dogs.  He passed his initial cat test and just wants everyone to be happy.  He is about 75 pounds of boy puppy.

Meet Scott – 5 year old black boy.  Scott is very lovable and likes to lean.  He would be happy to snuggle with you on the couch for movie night or spend the day in the yard playing.  He is very happy and social guy.  He is great with other dogs but may be a little too much for small or elderly dogs.  Likes all people. Cats are doubtful but we will test him.  Scott is ready to be somebody’s baby.  He is a great dog!!

– she is not even two years yet and was a training flunky.  Prim was too fearful to enter training.  She is very skittish and will require a very low pressure home with lots of patience.  Another dog (greyhound preferred) to follow would be ideal.  A stable adult home with very secure doors and fencing will be required.  We are having a hard time cat testing her since she does not relax enough to really test, but her breeder told us she would likely not be cat safe.  She is very sweet and is a stunning girl. 

ADOPTED by Fred and Patti Spillman of Bozeman
- 18 months fawn boy. – With a name like Tiger you would expect stripes but he is a lovely black masked red.  He is a big eyed youngest just learning about the world.  He is very sweet and would do best in a home with another dog.

Silver Dancer -
2 year old brindle female.

ADOPTED – All of us
Puff  was just 6 when she came to us.  As soon as we got her we noticed a lump on her leg.  Unfortunately that lump turned out to be an aggressive bone cancer.  She was only with us a few days before it became clear that she needed to released from her pain.  We were sad not to get to spend some time with her and get her into a new home.  But we were glad to help her and to offer her one on one love and TLC during her last days.  She will be fondly remembered.     


ADOPTED by Leah Gann of Belgrade
– 7 year old brindle female.  Star was a excellent racer.  She is a stakes winner and won multiple AA races at Wheeling down.  She retired to motherhood and had a few litters of pups.  She has earned life on the softest bed.  Not only was she a successful career mom but she is also very beautiful and sweet.  She will bring someone years of happiness. 

ADOPTED by Tracy Scott Pray of Missoula
– year old black male.  He  is super cute and sweet.  He is a youngster so his home should prepare for puppy antics. He can be vocal when he wants out to be with you.  He is great with other dogs and is cat workable.  He was never registered with NGA because he born with slightly bent legs.  You don’t notice it but his breeder felt racing may be too hard on him and she preferred to give him a good healthy life.  She also taught him to play fetch.  So if you are ready for FUN…buckle up….Spike is ready to have a family who wants to play.

– Will be 5 year in July.  Shea is sweet and silly.  No cats for this girl.  She had a full race career and was a kennel favorite at the OK adoption kennel.  Shea does have a very mild form of seizures which require a low cost medicine.  All of her vet records will come with her.  She does not collapse during her seizures she just gets really still and zones out and they are not very often, 3 noted in the past year.  Shea is personality plus and is sure to fill your days with laughter.

ADOPTED by the Hoover Family
Triton’s Place
– June 20, 2010 – This brindle boy is a love bug.  We had him placed but he proved to be too much for the small white dog of the family.  Triton will  be the perfect first hound for some lucky home or a ideal addition to a greyhound family.  He is calm, easy to  be with and beautiful to look at.

Nitro Deuce – We could not wait to get our hands on this 8 year old retired stud dog.  We met him several years ago and he impressed us with his fun and sweet personality.  A few of his offspring have already come to Montana, every one of them made us want him even more.  Deuce never even made it to foster care here in Montana.  He was adopted almost as soon as he arrived by one of our favorite greyhound homes.  This picture is his first night in his new home.  He has already figured out which couch is his.  Congrats to the Hardy family of Missoula and to Deuce!!  Thanks again to the Nitro Kennel for sending yet another great dog. 


Photo Paper
– This young brindle beauty already has an adoption pending.

Town Tamer
– 8 year old retired momma.  She was an awesome racer and then had a second career as a mom.  Now she is ready for it to be all about her.  She is ready to be the princess in some lucky person’s life.  She is soulful and quiet and tries really hard to be good.  I am in love with her and you will be too.

– 2 year old red and white boy.  Joe has icky puppy coat but when loses that and fills out he is going to be a knock out.  He likes to play and is very sweet.   He is cat correctable.  Like all young dogs Joe will take a bit of a time commitment to become all he can be. 

Money Mags
– 2 year old fawn girl – Adoption pending – As soon as she is vetted she will be packing her bags for her home who is already waiting. 

RC Plexico
- 5 yr. old black boy with a greying face. This is one cool dog.  He just wants to be loved will follow you anywhere.  He is a little on the big side and is sure to be someone’s best friend.  He may have an old dog face but it matches his wonderful old soul.  He is cat correctable and had no reaction to the small dogs other than wanting to say “hello”.  He is easy to overlook but anyone who spends anytime with this boy falls in love with him. 

Skinny Larry
– 2 year old brindle male – adoption pending – another great dog from the Nitro Kennel!!

– 1 year black male.  They called him Run Spot Run and fun loving is his game!!  When Spot was a pup he broke his leg, unfortunately his leg healed poorly.  By the time he got to Montana it quickly became clear that Spot would be much better off without that painful leg.  Spot will go through life as a tripod after losing his right hind leg.  When we got news of how bad the leg was the question became, do we put the money into surgery or let him go?  The answer was reached with one look into his happy trusting eyes.  Of course we will do surgery and figure out how to pay for it.  People who feel sorry for Spot need not apply…Spot won’t feel sorry for himself.  Spot needs a home who will spend the time to make him the exceptional pet he will become.  He will repay you with a lifetime of laughter and love.      

– 5 year old red brindle female – race name WW Blazin Star – ADOPTION PENDING – this 5 year old sweet heart is spoken for and will be moving to Billings soon.

– 2 year old fawn boy – race name Lizard Lick.  Remember the funny little lizard in Disney movie Mulan named Mooshu?  This boy is just as social and funny as that character.    Mooshu and his sister Money Mags came to Montana together.  He will make a great addition to a non-cat home.
