Meet Speedy

Speedy is a very special boy. He is a retired racing dog that was part of a humanitarian effort to save several hundred dogs that raced at the Macau dog track. The track was closed and multiple agencies including Grey2K have worked to assure each of them a new life as a "retired" racer.

We picked up Speedy and four other racers on December 12th from Lufthansa airlines and now they are ready for new homes, great homes!

The Macau greyhounds are a little smaller than our American greyhound racers but otherwise just the same. Both of the ones we still have available are black males, very quiet, and very sweet. All these dogs have worked hard and deserve a good retirement. They came with complete veterinary records (a very detailed international passport!!) and have been neutered and had their teeth cleaned by our vet. They had no previous dental care so their teeth are not good but they love to eat and aren't afraid to enjoy a good bone or a Greenie!

They are healthy and happy and looking forward to their next career as a housepet. They are crate trained, very clean, healthy, quiet. You'll see that Speedy's nose is scratched up because he loves sticking it through the chain link fencing in our kennel. They couldn't do that in their former kennels and they think it is fun!!

The ideal home for Speedy will not have any small dogs or other pets. He has a strong prey drive from his racing days. But he is very friendly and walks well on a leash. He needs to run off-leash at least once or twice a week so a fenced yard is ideal!! Doesn't have to be big but it needs a good fence.

Speedy is 8 years old but greys have a life expectancy of 15 to 18 years. He's a real sweetheart of a dog and will be an amazing companion. Greyhounds run really fast and then they nap, nap, NAP!! They have earned masters' degrees in Couch Potato!!

We would love for you to come meet him and our other Macau greyhound, Victory King at our home in Sunrise. Our kennel information as well as the application and handbook of care are on our website, For specific questions or to make an appointment to meet our dogs, please call or email us!!
