Additional Details:

Axe is a happy, big, black male that raced at 79lbs. He will turn 8 on December 22nd but you would never guess his age because he has not gotten white in the face yet like most other dogs his age. Axe was quite the star during his racing days, racing at 3 of the top tracks in the country and winning at the top A and AA levels and competing in Stakes races reserved for the best dogs at those tracks. He only raced 41 races and retired in April of 2013 due to a broken hock. The leg is long healed and he gets around just fine on it. He is free to run and play as much as he wants to. Axe has been hanging out at his owners farm since his injury. Axe's sire is Odd Skill and his dam is Myokie Flame. His half brother from the same mom is arriving with him, Rico's Kwanza. We already placed two half sisters that also had the same mom, Rico's Tignanello and Rico's By A Nose. Axe was very interested in the cat when he first met it but after the cat slapped him a few times he didn't want to go near it again so he would probably be trainable with a confident cat. He has been living in a foster home with a small white dog and has done fine with him. Axe is pretty vocal and did some barking in his kennel so he probably won't be a good choice for townhouse or apartment living. Axe is an intense boy, very alert and curious about everything. He watches everything and tries to be involved in everything you do. This isn't your typical older, couch potato, greyhound. He wants to be part of your life and will want to be included in everything. Axe is good on leash most of the time. If he gets really excited about something it is hard for him to resist pulling a little though just to check it out.
