Additional Details:

Gunslinger, now Tiger, is a red brindle male that came to us from the track initially before he was even two. He is being returned to us by the family that adopted him in March of 2014. His family renamed him Tiger. He ran 10 races at Birmingham Alabama Race Course before being retired. Tiger raced at 69lbs and is a tall handsome guy. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is CTW Cowgirl Up. Tiger was pretty calm and well behaved even when he was a young guy and is even calmer now. He is friendly and sweet and very outgoing with everyone he meets. He is very tolerant with other dogs and let a larger dog just lay right on him without complaint. He passed his cat test easily. He is being returned because he growled and air snapped at a visiting child that climbed on him while he was laying down. He chose not to actually be aggressive and bite. A growl or an air snap is the only way a dog can say it wants to be left alone. His family has moved close to relatives with small kids and plans to have their own as well in the future, so decided to re-home Tiger. Tiger will turn 8 on June 1st. These photos are from 2014. He still looks very much the same and is at a good weight and looks very healthy, just a little whiter in the face. He will have a fresh dental and health check and has already been brought up to date on his shots by his family. He is a very outgoing and sweet and appeared to be a very tolerant dog that didn't have space issues when placed initially. Any dog can become grumpy about their space when laying down or sleeping especially if kids get on them. That old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie" applies to most dogs. This is a sweet guy that loves people and comes already trained. He is very quiet in his crate so may be a great apartment dog.
