Additional Details:

Squirt just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He was born there and has lived there all his life. He had a nerve injury to his front leg when he was a pup that prevented him from racing. He was tattooed at 3 months with the rest of his litter, but never completed the registration process normally done after a year old. So he never got an official racing name. He has been called Squirt his entire life. He has been kept as a pet on the farm, but they have stopped raising dogs there due to the end of racing in Florida. They were unable to keep all their pets when they lost their income. His former owner had a hard time parting with Squirt and he had a hard time parting with her. He is a happy guy that loves to play ball and loves to play in the hose. He has a significant permanent limp on his front leg that has been examined by our vet. It is nerve damage and lack of feeling in the leg that causes it and she doesn't believe he is in any pain. He can still run very fast, mainly on 3 legs, and it doesn't stop him from chasing a ball. He does need a little help getting in and out of a vehicle because of that foot not having much feeling. He doesn't seem to be able to tell when it is on the ground or if it is right side up or knuckled under. He does use the front leg for balance when standing and walking slowly. It has been part of his life since he was a puppy, he has no idea there is any problem and rarely lets it slow him down. In his photos, Squirt has a little bit of redness from where his muzzle rubbed his nose on the trip up from the farm. That is completely gone now and the hair has grown back. Squirt is very loving and gives kisses and follows his people around. A very good boy that seems like he will be a pretty low key, easy guy. He can be a little sensitive and nervous just at first, since he has limited experience with life off the farm. He does travel well and just lays down. His sire is the famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is Taylor May Duffy. He was born on August 2, 2016 so just turned 5. Squirt is a small male that weighed just 62lbs at his vet appointment but could stand to gain a few pounds. He was vetted at Emerald City Vet hospital. Squirt has lived with cats and is very good with other dogs of all sizes. He is food motivated and eats very well. Although he initially will stop at at the entrance to a new crate, once he is in the crate, he settles and lays down and crates well. Squirt was in an adoptive home for a month and was having potty training issues there. He was fine before and once back in foster care and so far has had no accidents in his foster's home. He may just need some supervision and some guidance as all dogs do when moved to a new space until he learns where to go.
