Additional Details:

Gale came to us from the Birmingham Race Track. He is a beautiful black male that was shy and overwhelmed when he first arrived but warmed up to be friendly and sweet with his foster family. His sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Lady Jeannine. Gale raced 79 races mostly at Birmingham but also briefly at Naples-Ft Myers in Florida. He only won 3 races in his career, but he did place some. He last raced October 1st and was at the track adoption kennel waiting for a group or adopter to take him for months before we got him. He was just a shy, black boy that got overlooked. He just turned 3 on March 1st and raced at 73lbs so is a mid-sized guy. Gale enjoys going for rides and gets in a vehicle and lays down for the trip, but is timid in new places and meeting new people so probably would do better with a family that didn't do a lot of traveling with their dogs. He is a very low key, calm guy that is more of a homebody since he is shy. He does cautiously go up to new people if given a little time to warm up. Gale has been fostered with us for some time now so should be an easy addition that is already home-acclimated. Gale was too interested in chasing kitties to be able to live with them. Although he initially tested fine with small dogs and does fine with them most of the time he needs a home without small dogs. Gale does OK in a home with just one or two other large dogs but too many dogs and activity makes him nervous. What he wants most is a family that will let him hang out with them at night. He loves to sleep in the room with his humans. Gale is a timid guy that wants a home that is quiet and low key like he is. He has a lot of love to give to his new family.

Gale was adopted 7/5/15 and was called Ares by his family. He crossed the bridge 9/7/21 after struggling to get up, falling and and refusing food. He was very loved and had a fantastic life.
