Additional Details:

Harry is one of the last greyhounds coming to us from the Florida race tracks. The tracks there have been gradually shutting down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end racing in Florida by the beginning of 2021. Harry came to us from D'Arcy Kennels at Derby Lane. That track just closed on December 27th of 2020. Harry never actually had an official race at that track and was retired before his career even got started. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He will turn 2 on March 13th. Since he didn't race we don't have an official race weight on him, but he is a pretty tall guy that is bigger than his two brothers that he arrived with. He weighed 72lbs but is on the thin side. As a pet Harry should probably weigh between 75 and 80lbs. Harry came in with his two littermates Irvin Irving and Reggie Woo and both of them are smaller guys that raced at just 71lbs. Harry's litter were all named for the popular Harry Bosch books and TV series. Harry did not pass his cat test. He was very interested in the cat until the cat slapped him. He wouldn't go near the cat after that, so it is possible that he could be trained with them. But he still barked and seemed excitable from a distance, even after the cat smack. We think he would do best in a home without kitties. He has been fine with a small dog in his foster home and seems to get along with the their other greyhounds as well. He is very quiet in his crate and crates nicely so he may do fine as an apartment dog. He is very friendly and happy and gets a little bouncy and playful when he comes out of the crate. He liked the children he met too. Very sweet curious guy that is busy checking out everything in the house. He gives sweet kisses.
