Additional Details:

Bro is another one of the litter that retired straight out of training and didn't ever make it to the track. He is a black male that just turned 2 on May 26th. He is another tiny boy weighing only about 65lbs. His sire is Dave the Dog and his dam is Topaz Lass. Bro's foster home actually owns his dad Dave. Bro is pretty shy and needs some work on walking on leash because he freezes when he gets scared of new things. The shyness is genetic and we have gotted quite a few shy pups from Dave. They all end up being great loving pets once they get over their initial shyness though. Just takes a few months of patience on the part of their adoptive family. So far Bro has bonded very quickly to his foster mom and stays close to her following her around. He is pretty shy still of his foster dad though. Bro did great with a pug he met and wasn't even that interested in some chickens he rode up with, so seems like a pretty low prey drive guy that would be good in a home with small animals. He really likes having another greyhound to follow around and seems to learn from watching. When we took him to the vet a kid ran up to him and gave Bro a big hug before we could stop him. Most shy dogs tend to be more fearful around quick moving children but to our surprise Bro relaxed and did a little sigh and never made any move to avoid the child or get away. Even very social dogs don't normally enjoy being hugged by small strangers but Bro didn't seem to mind.

Bro is on medical hold for heartworm treatment. He is expected to be cleared for adoption after it is completed around October 10th.
