Additional Details:

Skinny Minnie came to us straight from a farm. She isn't going to race because she was sick as a puppy and was the runt of her litter. After running a lot of tests they found that she had Pancreatic Insufficiency which meant that she didn't produce the digestive enzymes that helped her digest her food. She will need just digestive enzymes and is fine as long as that is done. She is about 40lbs now and is going to stay very tiny. We don't think she will even get to 50lbs which is the size of the smallest female greyhounds. Minnie's dam is Dream Doll and her sire is Kiowa Mon Manny. She is the third greyhound pup of his we have had with this condition.The first is already adopted out and is living a healthy normal life and has had no further trouble since we started her on digestive enzymes. We don't normally get pups from the farms so this is a rare opportunity to get a greyhound puppy. Minnie was in a foster home with cats and did well with them. She is playful and fun but seems pretty calm for an 8 month old pup. She was very good with the kids and adults she met at a recent PetSmart meet and greet. Because she is still a puppy she will need a home with a fenced yard to run around in and won't be suitable for apartment living.
