Additional Details:

Vegas is an extra tall black male that raced at a thin 83lbs. For his weight, he has long legs, narrow body and tiny head. His back is hip high and he is as tall as some of our tallest 90+ lb boys. He is a super sweet boy that earned the nickname "Velcro" at the adoption kennel at the Birmingham Track. He would follow their staff around as they were working and lean on them every chance he got. He loves people. Vegas raced 116 races at a bunch of different tracks. Starting out at Mardi Gras, then Naples Ft Myers, Flagler then Palm Beach. He never actually raced in Birmingham but we got him from that track adoption group. Vegas is a very calm guy that is good on leash. He turned 4 years old on April 2nd. His sire is Flupa's Crackerbox and his grandsire Dave the Dog actually retired and lived in Piedmont SC, so we knew him too. His dam is Super By Design. Vegas needs to be tested with cats but he was fine with the the small dog in his foster home. Because of his extra large size, Vegas will need an extra tall 48 inch long crate. The standard 48" inch long crates are only 32 inches high and his back rubs on the top. He needs an extra tall 48" long crate that is 36" high or a 54 inch long great dane size crate that is even higher. Vegas travels really well. He was pretty loud in his kennel the first night but settled and has been quiet since so may be OK as an apartment dog. Vegas was diagnosed with Pannus which is an eye problem pretty common in greyhounds that can cause blindness if not treated with daily eye drops. The eye drops are not expensive and should control the disease if given daily. He should avoid long term sun exposure because that can make the eyes worse. He would look very cute in a pair of doggles (doggy sunglasses). His eyes look fine and it isn't something that the average person would even notice. It was caught very early and there is only a very tiny spot on the corner of one eye.
