Additional Details:

SPECIAL SENIOR THAT HAS BEEN WAITING ON A HOME THE LONGEST! Gracie just needs a home with no other dogs. Gracie is a tiny black female that raced at just 57lbs. She originally came from the track in Orlando and raced only 9 races there, not placing in one of those races. Her birthday is March 28th 2010 so she will be celebrating her 10th birthday soon. As a senior, she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250! Her sire is Tony's Oracle and her dam is USS Upside. She is a littermate to Michele Henry and Cute Candle that we already placed and a half sister to several other dogs we have placed. Gracie lived with cats for 2 years in her first home and is fine with them. She has been in two adoptive homes before and has been returned for the same reason both times. The first home adopted several puppies after adopting Gracie. Gracie has always had some issues with not liking to be bothered by other dogs when lying down or sleeping. Having a bunch of wild puppies in the house was too much for her. Her family decided to re-home Gracie and keep the puppies. She was placed in a home with no other dogs in December of 2014. That home adopted a second female dog in 2015 and Gracie got along well with her perfectly for 4 years. Gracie bit her housemate twice in 6 months time, once over food and once over her space, so the decision was made to re-home her again. We had Gracie checked by our vet and found that she is low thyroid and needs inexpensive thyroid medication. Low thyroid can cause behavior changes and grumpiness. We started Gracie on thyroid medication and she has been perfectly behaved with quite a few other dogs in her foster home for months now. Although Gracie is doing fantastic with the dogs in her foster home now, we want to place her in a home with no other dogs. She attends greyhound playgroup and is fine playing with the other dogs, so this isn't a dog that can never be around other dogs though. She has never been grumpy with people approaching her when she is laying down, according to her former family. She is friendly with adults and children she meets. Because she has shown grumpiness about her space, with other dogs, we chose to mark her 'older children only', just to be safe. Gracie isn't a needy girl and is perfectly happy laying on her bed most of the day. She doesn't follow you around and you will hardly know she is there. Gracie can be a little whiny sometimes. Gracie is doing great in foster care, has great house manners and knows how to use a doggy door. She is ready to be a pet for someone that wants a very easy, only dog that will be calm and well behaved.
