Additional Details:

Dusty is a senior gentleman who will turn 10 on August 10th. He really isn't all that big and raced at 75lbs. His sire is My Zapper and his dam is Kelley Dunn. Dusty raced the last time in September of 2009 and had a long career racing 120 races mostly in Birmingham AL. Dusty has had a string of bad luck though. He retired and was adopted first by a family that let him get into horrible condition and eventually returned him to the adoption kennel about 20lbs under weight. He was so thin that they weren't sure he would survive when they got him. The adoption staff at the track kennel spent months nursing him back to health and one of them ended up adopting him. Now, his most recent family is forced to give Dusty and their other greyhounds up because of more bad luck. He is a well behaved boy that is great with cats and small dogs and other dogs of all sizes male and female. He is so well behaved that he hasn't been crated in years and is a great house dog. He doesn't have accidents in his house. Dusty would be a great addition for a first time greyhound owner or someone that wants to add to their pack. Because Dusty is an older guy he has a reduced adoption fee of $200. He has had a checkup, shots and a fresh dental and is ready for his new life to begin. Dusty does have one corn on one toe that causes him to limp a bit on hard surfaces otherwise he seems healthy and he is so so sweet.
