Additional Details:

Spitfire just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas, Orange Park in Florida and Tri-State in WV. She raced 77 races, mainly at the lower levels. That is why she kept moving to different tracks, in hopes that they could find somewhere that she would be competitive. When she stayed at the lowest level stay after the last three moves, she was retired. Spitfire is not actually a spitfire at all. She is really sweet and friendly and just stares up into your eyes. She really loves treats according to her trainer and she will do anything to get one. Since she is so food motivated she may be one that would enjoy obedience or trick training. She is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. She has cute ears that go straight up when she is curious about something and a cute curly tail. Spitfire turned 3 on November 24th. Her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is Asteria Drive. Spitfire seems like a very sweet girl and didn't seem to be terribly stressed by the move. Her one quirk is that she doesn't want to go into a new crate. She sets her feet and raises her head as high as possible so she won't fit through the doorway. Once in the crate she is completely fine and lays down and goes to sleep. We may try bribing her by throwing in a treat. When she was at the vet's office she was very interested in the cats she saw and they didn't think she would be OK with cats. After she actually sniffed our cat and it slapped her, she completely changed her mind though and wouldn't go anywhere near our cats again. She seemed pretty traumatized by the one light slap the cat gave her. So we think she should be at least trainable with a confident cat that would just slap her one time.
