Additional Details:

August is a beautiful red girl that just arrived from Celtic Hounds Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track. She also raced at Dubuque and Mardi Gras race tracks. She retired after racing 69 times because she had a sore shoulder. August got bumped in a race back in November and hurt her shoulder. Her trainer took her out of racing for several months, waited for her shoulder to heal, and got her back into racing condition. He tried racing her again in March and she actually won a race and placed a couple of times and stayed racing until May. Her shoulder was a little sore after races though, so the decision was made to retired her. August is not limping now and doesn't seem to be bothered by her shoulder. Our vet looked at it and thinks she will be fine as a pet, but shouldn't do agility or coursing or other performance dog events. Our vet said she may have a little arthritis in her shoulder as she ages. There is a slight chance she could need surgery, in the future, if she re-injures her shoulder and makes it worse. August's litter was given racing names of large stores. She got Costco and yes there is a Sam's, Best Buy, K Mart and Target too. August just turned 3 on May 20th. Her sire is the famous BD's Grayson and her dam is Flying Kinney. August passed her cat and small dog tests without any interest in either. She also liked the kids she met. August is a very friendly girl that doesn't seem to meet a stranger. She likes other dogs and people she meets and seems like a happy waggy girl. She travels well and jumps right up into an SUV or backseat on command and settles right down for the trip. August was vetted in Clinton SC and is ready to go home.
