Additional Details:

Declan just arrived from Derby Lane in Florida. He was a star racer but was on a break from racing due to a broken toe. When the first toe healed up he broke another toe so they just decided to retire him rather than risk any more toes. Declan's birthday is October 15th, 2010. His sire is the famous Oshkosh Slammer so he is a half brother to a bunch of dogs we have adopted out. His dam is Dixie Stampede. Declan is an extra large guy at 86lbs. We have some of the biggest boys we have ever adopted out available right now. If you like big, friendly, playful boys Declan could be your guy. On the trip up from the track he found a glove that he was tossing around in the back of the van. Definitely a guy that isn't stressed by being in a vehicle or around strangers. He likes everyone he meets and doesn't seem to get worried or stressed by anything. He still needs to be tested with cats but has been very good with the small dogs he has met and hasn't even shown interest in chasing squirrels in the yard so we think he will probably be cat safe as well. Declan crates quietly and likes to sleep in his crate so might be quiet enough for apartment living. He is a total love bug that will stand patiently and wait to be petted and will follow you around. He does well with the other male dogs in his foster home and has just settled in like he has always been there. He only had one accident in the house when potty training. He doesn't counter surf and is very well behaved. If he does anything wrong an "UH UH" is all it takes to make him stop. Because of his two broken toes his racing trainer doesn't think he would be a good performance dog prospect for agility or lure coursing. He is fine to run and play with other dogs, hike, go for walks or jogs with his owner though. Those toes shouldn't bother him as a pet.
