Additional Details:

Chato came to us in December of 2009 from the Gulf Greyhound Track where she raced just 14 races. She won 3 of those and came in 2nd or 3rd in a lot of others. Before her career really got going, she stumbled and fell and broke her leg. She was retired, although the break didn't appear to be a very bad one. Our vets say the break is healing really well and Chato should be fine to run around and play after it completely heals. She will be in a splint until it heals and then will require some more time of limited activity to regain strength in her leg before being allowed to run again. Her trainer describes her as a tiny, bubbly girl that follows her around trying to get her attention. She is a tiny 53lb white and black girl with two big black spots on her back that resemble angel wings and some smaller black freckles (ticking). She did great at her first dog event and would go up calmly to people and lean against them to be petted. Chato seems to like to travel and will hop up on the seat and lay down for the ride. She has done great with the very small dogs and cats in her foster home so should be fine living with either. Chato is a half sister to Lily and CurlyQ, two of the girls we placed at about the same time. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is Sunsands Lilgirl. Her DOB is 7/22/07.

Update: Hi! my name's Chato. My hobbies include loving on you, leash walks, and snuggling. Ok ok, I love eating too! What i'm looking for in a family is someone to love me back, help me stretch my legs a lil, and keep my food bowl full. I'm a very good girl, i just want to make you happy. I don't mind having brothers and sisters, but i'm ok with being an only child too. If littler dogs growl at me or snap I just walk away. I am such a good girl. I learned to go potty on a leash really good, and i can even walk on slick floors like hardwood and tile with my splint.I could live in an apartment or without a fenced yard since I am so good on leash and quiet. My leg is healing up so well that you can barely tell where I broke it now. I can hardly wait until I can run around and play again. I am a pretty low energy girl, so don't require much exercise. I would be perfect for a low energy owner that likes to just go for short walks.

Chato was adopted in August of 2010 by the Siman Family. She had a long life with them and crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 14.5 in January 2022. They are never with us long enough though. She will be missed.
