Additional Details:

Sammy came to us from an adoption group in Memphis that moves dogs from the track there to other adoption groups. He is a larger black male racing at 78lbs. He was a good racer that raced his entire career at top A level and ran at several tracks. He started at Birmingham then went to Naples Ft Myers and Flagler. He raced 77 races. Sammy turns 4 on December 20th. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Country Billings.  Sammy is very happy, outgoing and loving. He will chose to hang out with people over other activities. He passed his cat test easily and seems like he will be OK with cats with just a little supervision at first. Sammy is being fostered in an apartment and walks and potties nicely on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. He is a bit higher energy than the average greyhound and loves to run and play when he has access to a fenced area. He plays really well with other dogs large and small and encourages the other dogs at the dog park to try to catch him, but they rarely can. Even though he isn't a total couch potato, he still is happy sleeping most of the day as long as he gets a little exercise. Sammy doesn't have accidents in his crate even when his foster mom had an extra long day at work. He did try to mark things in the house when he first arrived, but quickly learned good house training. Sammy is very quiet in his kennel and is being fostered in an apartment so may be the perfect choice for apartment or townhouse living. The only time he makes noise is when he hears his foster mom coming in the front door after being gone. Sammy is a very sweet boy that is happy, silly and very charming. He likes kids and everyone else he meets and seems to have a great personality.
