Additional Details:

We received Antonio from Sanford Orlando Race Track. He raced his last race on 6/27/08. Antonio was a shy but sweet brindle boy. His sire was Deuce's Wild and his dam was JNB Rock Bottom. He was a kennel favorite because he was such a timid sensitive boy. He had grown to love his trainers and had gotten very attached to them. His trainers wished they could just keep him themselves and were really worried about how he would react to the change from his track kennel to home life since he was such a timid high stress guy. Sadly, Antonio left us suddenly just hours after arriving from Florida on 7/12/08. He began hyperventilating during transport in his foster mom's van. They were stuck in traffic, so it took some time to get to a vet and he died before they could get there. His foster family, the Small Family of Myrtle Beach, SC, have requested the honor of a Memorial Adoption. His last hour ws spent surrounded by their love. Our condolences to Cindy Small as well as Joanne Johnson and Becky Canfield who spent time with him the week-end of his death while transporting him. We also wish to send prayers to his trainers, Diane Alphonso and John Galui, who loved Antonio as a kennel favorite and wished they could have kept him forever as their special pet. It was their wish to share his love with others that let Antonio spend his last day with our group.
