Additional Details:

Oscar is a friendly, bouncy, red brindle guy that will celebrate his 4th birthday October 7th. His sire is KJ''s Yukon Gold and his Dam is Gilded Rose. He has 47 races to his credit and he raced at Bluffs Run, Sarasota and Sanford Orlando. He only won 2 races but placed in the money a lot. He raced at 73lbs. He is a sweet guy that passed his cat test and has been living in a home with them. At the track they said that he was Mr Personality following his trainers around and interacting with them a lot while they were doing chores. We have seen the same thing. He doesn't seem to meet a stranger and is very outgoing and friendly. He travelled well on the trip up from the track. He is a higher energy greyhound that loves to run laps every day so would do best in a home with a large yard to run in and maybe even another dog to play with. He probably wouldn't do well in an apartment without a place to run. Oscar has been living in an adoptive home for a year but they felt he would be happier in a home with a large yard, another dog or kids to play with. Because of his higher energy level he might be the perfect dog for someone that wanted a greyhound that could do agility or lure coursing. Oscar absolutely loves children and would be great in a home with older kids that he could play with. This boy is all about playing and having a good time.

Update on Oscar from his foster mom: Oscar is the happiest doggie ever. He will wake you in the morning by putting his nose in your face. If that doesn't work, he'll slip his nose under the covers. And if that doesn't work, he will softly bark you a good morning. He thinks eating is the most wonderful thing ever! He thinks walking is the most wonderful thing ever but isn't big on going jogging and will stop after less than a mile! He thinks sleeping is the most wonderful thing ever! But maybe the MOST wonderful thing ever is when you come home and he is so happy and waggy. Not terribly friendly to squirrels, but all other critters are friends. Totally house trained.

Oscar was adopted in Sept of 2014 by his foster family. He lived a long happy life and crossed the bridge May 16th of 2022 of complications due to old age. He will be missed.
