You won't often see a greyhound sit. Due to their body structure, it is generally uncomfortable for them.


Greyhounds are calm dogs and make great therapy dogs for visiting nursing homes.


The average weight of a greyhound:

Female: 50-65 pounds

Male: 65-80 pounds

The average age of a retired racing greyhound is between two and five years old. The average lifespan is twelve to fourteen years.

Greyhounds come in a large variety of colors. There is actually no "grey" color, the official color for a grey-ish coat is "blue".

Adoption Process

 Our goal is to facilitate the best match for your family. Click here for our Adoption Application.

Special Needs

 The Jean Marie Webb Memorial Fund was created in memory of a greyhound adopter to help us take on the financial burden of helping greyhounds with special needs.

Meet & Greets

 A meet & greet is a great opportunity to see and learn about retired racing greyhounds. We invite you to stop by and meet these wonderful dogs.

​​​Fostering​ 

We don't have a kennel so we rely on foster homes to acclimate the dogs to life off the track. If you are interested in fostering a greyhound, please complete our Foster Application.

Music City Greyhound Adoption is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding homes for greyhounds who have completed their careers on the track. We strive to place each dog in a loving, forever home. We look forward to helping you find the greyt companion you are seeking.
