Additional Details:

Mertz just arrived. He raced only 3 races and those were all at the Orange Park Race Track. He didn't race well there and was sent to Palm Beach. He was schooled there and just didn't show any promise there either so was retired and sent to us with his brother Sketch. Mertz sire and dam are both famous dogs Highly Classified and Ethel is Here. He didn't inherit his parents racing skill and his trainer said that he was really more interested in playing with other dogs than chasing the lure. Mertz is one of the greyhound grinners that pulls his lips back into a full grin whenever he gets excited. It is a submissive gesture and even though it looks a little like showing teeth it is actually a happy smile. Mertz is a happy friendly boy. He is a little guy that raced at just 67lbs. He turned 2 on September 23rd. Mertz passed his small dog test easily, losing interest after a good sniff. He checked out the cat, but after he got smacked by the cat he wanted nothing more to do with him. He is the littermate of Sketch who arrived in the same load.
