FactsRetired Racing Greyhounds make great pets. They are quiet and loving companions that live to be 12-14 years old. At retirement they can be anywhere from 2-5 years old leaving many years to be a family member. Breed characteristics include a sweet and gentle disposition, little to no barking, and low maintenance due to their short coat and relatively low shedding. They sleep most of the time and are not hyper at all, hence the nickname "40 MPH Couch Potatoes". Retired racing greyhounds are indoor pets and must not be let off leash outside a fenced area. If you are considering sharing your life with a former working dog that takes it's retirement seriously, feel free to contact us for more information. Email: email@example.com
Who We AreFastK9's Greyhound Adoption, Inc. is a local, non-profit, 501(c)(3) exempt organization that works to find homes for greyhounds that are out on Houston area greyhound farms awaiting placement. We are proud to work closely with breeders, trainers and owners who hold their retirees at their own expense until placed in homes. We believe such responsible individuals are often overlooked in the greyhound adoption community and we are determined to provide some assistance in placing these much loved greyhounds into homes as pets.

Please note: Like the majority of adoption groups, our adoptions are conditioned on many factors, including , but not exclusive to reference checks, home visits and our opinion as to the appropriateness of placing this breed of dog with a family after getting to know their lifestyles and attitudes. We have a written adoption contract and until that contract is signed by a FastK9's Representative no adoption is final. FastK9's reserves the right to decline any adoption application for any reason. Our obligation is to secure a safe home for these awesome dogs and if we feel for any reason a home is unsuitable the application will (rightfully so) be declined. Anyone who does not understand or agree with this is probably not suited to adopt this breed and we respectfully suggest that adoption may not be their best option.
