Additional Details:

Icon is a gentle 86 lb giant that just came in from the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. He never actually raced there but was just sent to their adoption kennel to place with one of the adoption groups they work with. Icon was one of the best racers, getting up to the very top AA level, at the best track in the country- Southland in Arkansas. He also raced at another top track, Wheeling in WV, then Mardi Gras, Dubuque and finally Sarasota. He raced 153 races. Icon broke his leg on January 6th of 2018. He was casted for 6 weeks and put into a soft splint for 2 after that at the track. His splint has been removed now but he still isn't using his leg much, so we will have our vets check it to see how it is healing. If it requires any farther treatment we will have that done before he is released for adoption. Icon is huge. He raced at 86lbs. He is very tall and his back comes up to our hip, probably around 31 or 32 inches at the shoulder. Icon has a gorgeous shiny black coat. He is friendly and happy. Icon travels really well and is silent in his crate so may be a good choice to live in an apartment or townhouse. He loves to put his head in your lap for petting and seems pretty calm indoors. Icon can be playful and bouncy outside. He may have some activity restriction depending on what our vets find when they X-ray his leg, but for now he just runs around happily on 3 legs and holds up his injured leg without any problem. It doesn't slow him down much. His leg may always bother him some, so Icon may not enjoy long hikes. He loves to go for shorter walks though and can support his weight and uses his leg when walking. He is a great guy and his foster home just loves his personality. He is a really good guy that seems to want to please and just wants love. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily with no desire to chase either. He seems to like other dogs and everyone he meets. Icon's sire is the very famous DJays Octane and his dam is Silver Idol. He just turned 5 on April 1st.
