Additional Details:

Topper came to us in pretty bad shape. He is a tall, white boy with a couple of black spots on his face. The rest of him is white. He was registered to race but never actually had an official race so must have been adopted initially when he was around 2 years old. So it is likely he has been in a adoptive home for at least 6.5 years. We were able to identify him by his ear tattoos to get his racing name and he did have a tag on that said his call name was Topper. Since he doesn't have an official racing weight we don't know exactly what he should weigh but he is horribly thin now. Our vet thinks he should weight around 80lbs. Topper is tall for a male with a big head and extra long nose with a cute overbite. From what we can gather he was relinquished by his owners because they couldn't take care of him anymore. The person they gave him to, tied him out in their yard for at least a week according to their neighbors. That family turned him over to us when we asked for him. When Topper arrived he was very underweight, had lots of fleas, itchy skin and toenails that hadn't been trimmed in a very long time. Our vet checked him over and feels he is healthy in spite of being 20lbs underweight. He is heartworm negative. Topper was neutered already, and we gave him a fresh dental. Topper did not pay any attention to the cats at the vet clinic and seemed OK with a small white dog in his first foster home too. He goes right up to kids when he sees them too and seems to like them. He rides well in the car and crates well. He has only made a little noise in his kennel. He did great at the vet's office and calmly did everything asked of him and didn't seem to mind being handled. He seems like a very calm, sweet boy. He is putting on weight quickly and is gaining strength back after just a couple of weeks in his foster home. Topper turned 8 on July 24th, so that qualifies him for our reduced senior adoption fee of $200. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Arville. 

Update: Topper was adopted by the McPike family in 2017 when he was 8.5 years old. He had a wonderful life with them until until March of 2021 when he was nearly 13 years old. His family helped him cross the bridge due to weakness in his backend and possible cancer in a front leg that caused him a lot of pain. RIP Topper.
