Additional Details:

Rocket just arrived from the Southland race track in Arkansas where he was quite the star. He raced and won at the top AA level at there and it is one of the top tracks in the country. Rocket also competed in special Stakes races for the very fastest dogs at that track. This is an amazing racer! Rocket ran 121 races and is a taller guy at 78lbs. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Bi's Hunter. Rocket will turn 4 on December 28th. Rocket is friendly and sweet and makes great eye contact. He has a lot of dark eyeliner around his eyes and is very cute staring up at you with those big eyes. He is a happy, bouncy, boy that is very loving and loves to be with his people. He bounces happily to see you when you come home but doesn't jump on you. Like most greyhounds he is very calm and naps a lot. He does make a little noise in this kennel so wouldn't be a good apartment or townhouse dog. He mainly makes noise when he is waiting his turn to go outside. Rocket is good on leash and will go potty on leash so may not need a fenced yard. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily and was very good with the free roaming cats in the vet's office. Rocket was a little stressed when he first came in so he does seem like a somewhat sensitive boy but he got over that within a few days. He isn't shy at all with people and did great at his first meet and greet at a huge Home and Garden Show. He is also doing very well with a toddler in his foster home. He playbows, spins and will do a cute little bark to try to get you to play with him.This is a very sweet, cute, superstar with a fun personality.
