Additional Details:

John retired in March of 2020. was raised at the Plum Creek Farm and raced most of his career at the Celtic Hounds kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He was pretty good getting up to the top A level there and winning. He was moved to Southland in Arkansas, a faster track with tougher competition. When he wasn't doing real well there, he was moved back to Orlando. He has a 125 races. John's sire is the famous BD's Grayson and his dam is Copy Cat. He is a mid sized male racing at 75lbs. He will turned 4 on December 20th. John passed his cat and small dog tests with just some initial curiosity, then lost interest quickly. He should be fine to live with either. He is a very happy friendly guy with a bounce in his step. His trainer says he is a total love bug. He was also called Johnny Boy at the kennel sometimes. John was adopted in March of 2020 and his name was changed to Boss. He is looking for a new home now because the female greyhound in his home never really liked having him there. His owners hoped she would gradually get better with him, but she bossed him around, bothered him trying to get him to play and wouldn't allow him to run in the yard, play with her toys or be around 'her' people. Boss would like a home as an only dog or with an older, calm dog that isn't bossy or overly playful. He does love to run in the yard, just a few laps. He plays with stuffed toys for a couple of minutes, then is done. He is wonderful with people, very loving and couldn't be any sweeter. His owner says he is the sweetest soul he has ever met and his foster mom agrees. It was a very hard, emotional decision for his owners to give him up. Boss liked the grandkids of his owners ages 3, 6 and 11 and has always been good with them.
