Additional Details:

Doc came in from the Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in February. He only has one race listed and he finished last. He wasn't much better in his previous schooling races. His trainers say that he would be a good candidate for dog sports because he is injury free and just not quite fast enough for the professional track. He is very young and just turned 2 on May 27th. His sire is the famous Cayman Went and his dam is D's Overthemoon. Doc is a big brindle guy that raced at 80lbs. Doc was a little overwhelmed and nervous when he first arrived, but warmed up in his foster home and quickly became a happy, goofy guy. When he first came in, he would shy away if you reached for him, but would come right up if another greyhound was getting petted. He needed a little work on leash because he tried to backup or bolt if something surprised him. Doc is very quiet in his crate and is being fostered in a townhouse, so should be a good choice for apartment or townhouse living. Doc was adopted March 1st and was renamed Tigger. He is being returned to us because he growled at a child that was leaning on him and petting him, to comfort him, after he had already had a stressful day that included an upset tummy from being fed too much and a bath. A growl is the only way a dog has to say he doesn't like something and actually shows that the dog would rather warn than actually bite. Doc has always been a sweet guy that likes people and even kids, but will need to be placed in a home where everyone understands the old saying "Let a sleeping dog lie". Many dogs don't like to have someone lean on them or pet them when they are laying down resting, even when awake.
