Additional Details:

Cooper is a 5 year old guy that raced at Daytona Beach, Sarasota, Flagler and Dubuque. He wasn't very fast so was moved from track to track in hopes of finding one that he could be competitive at. He raced 87 races at the lowest levels and ended his career at Daytona Beach in January of 2017. Cooper was initially placed through another adoption group that was in the process of shutting down. He was returned to that group by his first adopter after being in a home for about a year in January of 2018. Then he was in foster care for nearly another year. The group reached out to us to place him, since they had shut down. Cooper is a large 79lbs brindle greyhound. He is pretty energetic for a 5 year old and loves to go for walks and jogs. His foster mom was taking him on 3 mile walks every day with her. He does have a pretty high prey drive so needs a home with no cats and no tiny dogs that look like bunnies. He is fine with larger dogs and greyhounds. He is in a foster home with older kids and is fine with them and likes them. He can be a little grumpy about his space so needs a home without small kids that wouldn't understand that. He loves to be up on the beds and couches. He likes to play with toys and is a happy guy. He is a very confident guy that can be a bit dramatic when he doesn't get what he wants or is asked to do something he doesn't want to do. He just turned 5 on November 24th. His sire is Kiowa Mystic Job and his dam is Kiowa Trey Tatoo. He wasn't crated in his former foster home but has been learning to crate again since he arrived with us. He is very good on leash.
