Additional Details:

Nosey came in from a farm in WV. She raced at both Tri State and Wheeling in WV. She was a good racer that was in several Stakes races that are reserved for the best racers at the track. Nosey was even a finalist in the 2010 Wheeling WVGOBA Middle Distance Championship. She raced 74 races and finished up her career in January of 2013. Nosey went back to the farm to become a mom and had 6 puppies in 2014 and 4 more in 2015 that are registered and racing now. She probably had more that are still too young to race. Nosey is a cute red girl that raced at 64lbs and will celebrate her 9th birthday on November 24th. She definitely doesn't look her age. Her sire is the famous Flying Penske and her dam is Myokie Flame. She is a very friendly girl that loves to snuggle with her people. Very very sweet and doing well in foster care. She passed her small dog test easily and was OK with some cats she met but has been somewhat interested in some others so we think she may be trainable and just needs to meet and get used to being around cats. She can be introduced to your cats on request to see how she does. 

Nosey was called Rosie by her new family. Even though she was adopted as a 9 year old senior, she lived another 4 years with her new family. Rosie crossed the bridge at nearly 13 on October 6th of 2021.
