Additional Details:

Dax just arrived from Wave Rider Kennel at the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced briefly at the Orange Park Race Track. He raced a total of 64 races and did get up to the top A level briefly. Dax raced at 77lbs and just turned 3 on Jan 3rd. His sire is the famous Dragon Fire and his dam is Barts Sweet Pea. Dax has a big personality and is pretty energetic for a greyhound. He is very outgoing and friendly and goes straight up to meet everyone he sees. He wags so hard that he injured his tail as a pup and lost half of it. He is pretty excitable and wants to jump up and give hugs to everyone he meets. We are working on toning down his enthusiasm a bit. He is curious and wants to check out everything. Dax seems like a very confident guy that isn't afraid of anything. He is playful and goofy. His trainer says he mumbles and talks to himself in his kennel and will carry on a conversation with you if you talk back to him. Dax is very used to being around kids because his trainer brings her kids to the kennel with her. We marked him older kids only because of him jumping on people. He would knock a toddler or small child down in his excitement without more training. Dax liked the small dog he was around that lived in the racing kennel and did fine with the small dog he met when he arrived with us too. He initially showed a little interest in the cat he met but lost interest pretty fast after sniffing and having the cat hiss at him a few times.  If you want a greyhound that is personality plus, Dax is your guy. Dax is a strong excitable guy that does pull on the leash when excited so will need some more leash training.
