Welcome to GPA-Louisville!

Are you thinking about adopting a dog?  We’d love to talk to you about making a retired racing Greyhound a part of your family.

Greyhounds are clean, quiet and docile.  Most are fine living with other canine breeds and many get along well with cats.  Retired racers make wonderful household pets and companions but they are strictly inside pets.  They make excellent walking companions and most are great with well behaved children.

Snow Osti - "Snowball"female, white and black, born Mar 15, 2015
Snowball is a big affectionate girl with a beautiful face and a heart of
gold! Snowball is a super placid and laid-back dog who likes to chill out
and lay around, keeping good company. Snowball is a very gentle,
quiet girl. She isn’t a barker, nor is she known to jump, making her the
perfect pet for someone looking for a dog that is a bit easier to handle
physically.
Snowball has not had exposure to any other dog breeds, but she is
very human social and has a lot of experience with kids. Snowball
previously lived with children ages 8 and 15 and loved to be around
them, giving lots of kisses and cuddles!
Snowball is not overly active either (unless laying around is a sport!).
She is happy to have a small run around a yard and was often walked
by the kids as she is so gentle. Despite her larger stature, she does not
require a very large yard or space either.
Snowball has not lived in a domestic household yet, however a nice
soft bed near her human and she’ll be as happy as can be! She is quiet
in her kennels and with a bit of training on life indoors, there’s no
doubt Snowball will quickly adjust to being an indoor pro!
Snowball’s gentle nature means that she would be a wonderful
addition in a home with an older person or someone with a slower,
more relaxed pace of life. She’ll be happy to lay around, dispensing her
endless amount of affection and kisses!
Snowball is a beautiful dog who can’t wait to become part of a happy,
loving home. Don’t hesitate to take this gorgeous girly home!
Bella Mia - "Bella"female, white and black, born Aug 20, 2021
Bella is a wonder-dog! She is sweet, fun, playful and just gorgeous inside and out. Bella already has some experience living as a family pet and now she just can’t wait to find her forever home!
Bella is an active dog. She likes to play, run around with her friends and is very good on street walks. She would definitely suit an active couple or family who can take her on walks and adventures (and in return she’ll make sure you get your steps in too!).
Bella is very social and loves to spend time with humans. Her previous trainer had grandchildren ages 7 and 11 years who she just loved. The kids would play with her, kick a ball around for Bella to chase and also help to feed her. Bella loved it all!
She is also quite dog social. Bella previously lived with 8 other retired Greyhounds who she used to love running around the yard with! She has not had any interactions with smaller dog breeds other than seeing a terrier at the vet so any small dog introductions in the future would need to be gradual and under the recommended guidelines to ensure that everyone walks away with their tails wagging!
Revelstone - "Rava"black male, born Jan 2, 2018
Rava is a wonderful, fun dog who would make a great addition to almost any kind of home.
Rava is a cruisy kind of dog who really doesn’t let anything faze him. Rava is very cool, calm, and collected however he gets bored quite easily and needs to go on walks to keep himself ticking along.
Rava has a lot of exposure interacting with other Greyhounds and got along great with them, but he was always fed separately. If Rava is in a home with another dog, they would need to be separated at meal times to continue this habit. Rava has also socialized with small dogs on occasion and never showed any issue with them either. In actual fact, Rava really doesn’t pay other dogs much mind; he’s too cool to worry about what they’re up to!
Rava is very human-social and loves kids in particular! Rava has spent time with kids ages 4 & 5 and just adored them! He really would make for a great family pet.
Rava is a fun dog who is happy to chill out and relax but he does have his simple pleasures that he enjoys too! Rava loves the water and any excuse to splash and play about in it, he’ll be there! Rava has also spent a lot of time indoors and absolutely loves being in the house!
Rava is a wonderful dog, already set to be the perfect family pet. He would make a great addition to almost any home; active couples, family with young kids, houses with other dogs already- Rava is ready for it all!
Station Street - "Jasper"black male, born Apr 23, 2021
Jasper is a happy, outgoing boy with a big smile and a waggily tail
for everyone! Jasper loves to get his steps in, going for daily walks
and getting out to play in the park.
While he loves to get out and exercise, Jasper also likes to cuddle
up in a comfy jacket and chill out- the best of both worlds!
Jasper is happy, cruisy and a handsome gentleman who would
make a wonderful fur-ever friend!

Turbo Silas - "Silas"***** Adopted *****
male; born 02/08/2022; only raced a few times;

• Personality wise he is very sweet, shy at first but quick to warm up to people. In the house he is very chill for a young dog - likes to find a comfy spot and lounge for hours but also enjoys his morning zoomies. He also loves lounging on the deck/backyard.

• Good with children - we have a two year old he’s been great with.

• Good with other dogs big and small. Not sure about cats we haven’t met one yet.

• House training great - has only had one accident when we first got him.

• Great in a crate. Sleeps in his crate all night and is crated and quiet when we’re gone. Occasionally chooses to go in there on his own sometimes as well to nap.

• Good with leash walks. Still gets a little spooked with loud cars but has gained a lot of confidence since we first got him.

• Loads up and rides in the car super well.
Sweet Tea- "Thera"Sweet 4 year old girl. Doesn't like getting in a car but gets in a van just fine. She appears to be "cat safe," but depends on the cat.
