Additional Details:

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 them. Her birthday is March 28th 2010 so she is 9 now. As a senior she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee 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 homes so far 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 so many dogs in the house was too much for her so her and she really didn't like 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 for 4 years. In the last 6 months Gracie has bitten her twice though. We have had Gracie checked by our vet and found that she is low thyroid and needs medication. That can cause behavior changes and grumpiness. Gracie is very loving with people. She is fine with people approaching her when she is laying down according to her former family. She loves everyone she meets and is very outgoing and friendly with adults and children. Because she has shown grumpiness about her space with other dogs we chose to mark her older children only just to be safe. Gracie wants a home where she will be the only dog and will need to remain on inexpensive thyroid medication. She can be whiny, so needs a home that is either OK with that or will completely stop rewarding the behavior by ignoring the whining. Gracie is doing great in her foster home and has shown no grumpiness towards their dogs so far. She is also doing better on her whining after a few corrections.
