Additional Details:

Special Adoption! Available for adoption with Rope Climber! Dutch had a few schooling races at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville. He was so far behind the other dogs that he wasn't even in the video at the finish of his first 3 schooling races. He had 3 more schooling races and wasn't able to win one, so was retired in April of 2019. He was placed in an adoptive home by the track adoption group there with a female greyhound named Zoe. Now that family has grown and they are having a difficult time keeping up with 2 large dogs in addition to small kids. The adoption group at the Orange Park track disbanded after the track there closed in 2020. They gave us permission to help the owners re-home Dutch and his housemate, Zoe.  Dutch is a brindle male, DOB:  04-06-2017 that is 4.5 years old. His previous owner describes him as an “Old Soul,” very gentle, affectionate, a true couch potato. Dutch is pretty sensitive to his environment and loves routine.  He dislikes being crated, having his nails clipped and does not handle non-carpeted floors well - and may freeze on slippery floors. The noise of the outside street sweeper scares him too. Dutch rides well in the car, but takes longer to lay down than Zoe. He is more dependent on Zoe, than she is on him. He is excellent on leash and does not pull. He does well with children and does well with other dogs at the dog park. He still needs to be tested with cats because he hasn't been around them in his adoptive home. He is described as “super-sweet,” but shows nervousness much more than Zoe.
