Additional Details:

Carla just arrived from Larson Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She is a brindle female that raced at 63lbs. She only raced 19 races and never won one of those and only placed a few times. She was retired young and won't turn 2 until October 16th. Carla arrived with her littermate Hurricane Berry. Her sire is Barcelona Boss and her dam is Hurricane Riot. We placed her mom's mom Audacious. Carla travels well and is a natural sitter. Carla is a happy, friendly, waggy girl and so pretty! She was very interested in the cat until it slapped her, then she screamed and ran. She kept squealing for awhile and we checked her for a scratch, but found nothing. She wouldn't get near the cat again. When she had to walk past the cat to get out of the room she started screaming again even though the cat never touched her. She seems like she is very dramatic. We think she would be easily trainable by a cat that would slap her just once. She did fine with the small dog she was fostered with and was very friendly with children. She travels well too. Carla can be pushy about getting what she wants, but her dramatic side means that she corrects pretty easily. Carla is a natural sitter (it is not a comfortable position for most greyhounds) and is very good on leash.
