Additional Details:

Raccoon is a friendly girl with very unusual markings. She got her nickname at the track because of the black around her eyes. We haven't seen a fawn dog with this much white before either. She has a white blaze, a wide white collar around her neck, white stockings that go nearly all the way up her legs and half of her tail is even white. Raccoon figured out how to get off her kennel muzzle at the track so she ended up being the only greyhound that didn't have to wear one. She got along well with all the other girls in the turn out pen so she never really needed one. Raccoon loves to play with toys and carry them around. Her favorite at the track was an old cleaned out bleach bottle that she would proudly carry around. She figured out steps right away and has no problem with them. Raccoon has shown that she has a pretty high prey drive but has been OK with the small dog in her foster home after a proper introduction and supervision. She seems to be OK with cats too after an initial sniff but needs to be supervised when cats or small dogs move quickly around her at first until she realizes what they are. She responds very well to correction with cats and small dogs. Raccoon can be loud in the crate sometimes so may not be a good dog for apartment living. She has learned to potty on leash so may be able to live in a home without a fenced yard if her family was willing to leash walk her.

Raccoon was loved by the Horton Bottiglier Family of Greenville SC for over 5 years. Sadly Raccoon crossed the bridge 1/18/16 due to bone cancer.
