Additional Details:

Altamonte Al had a very successful racing career and was quite a big star at the track. Quite a few people came to tell him goodbye when he retired. He raced at a pretty thin 74lbs and looks better closer to 80lbs. Al has been in an adoptive home since April but they ended up having to move out of the country and aren't able to take him with them so decided to rehome him. He is already home acclimated! Al's date of birth is 11/12/08 so he just celebrated his 5th birthday. He is a happy, goofy guy that has personality to spare. So much so that he was a favorite with everyone he met at the track from lead outs to bettors. HIs trainers and the track personel had a hard time letting him go because they were so attached to Al and consider him a pet. His picture is up on the wall at the track.

Al is quite the snuggler and even though he is a big guy he is likely to want to get in your lap. He loves to get up and lay beside you or even in your lap while watching TV. Al loves toys and will throw them up and play with them himself and loves to chase them when they are thrown for him. He loves to go for walks and potties well on leash. Al was living in a townhouse in his previous home and did fine without a fenced yard. He is a higher energy greyhound and loves to play so might do better with a fenced yard to run around in, unless his family was willing to do walks or jogs with him so that he got enough exercise. He has too high of a prey drive to live with cats. He loves other greyhounds though and larger calmer dogs but just doesn't care for smaller dogs of other breeds that bounce around him and get in his face. His sire is Tony's Oracle which makes him a relative of quite a few other dogs we have placed. Al is the whole package. Just stunning to look at, loving and already home acclimated.

Al was in a wonderful home from 2014 to April of 2020 when he passed away due to Osteosarcoma. RIP Al you will be missed.
