Additional Details:

Dudley initially came in from the Brindle Kennel at the Palm Beach Race Track. He never had an official race, because he had an injury to his hock while he was in race training. It has completely healed and he has been in an adoptive home since May of 2017. Dudley was just returned to us on 1/6/18 by his owner Jamie Pilgrim of Pickens. On arrival he only weighed 42lbs and was a walking skeleton with much of his hair missing and open pressure sores. Dudley is under vet care and against all odds seems like he will recover, probably because he is so young. Our vet has checked him over and his blood work looks normal and nothing was found that would cause this other than starvation. Dudley turned 2 on August 16th and is a mid sized male that should be at least 75lbs. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Hey Dodi Lou. Dudley is a cute, friendly boy that seems pretty calm for a 2 year old. He is quiet in his crate so may be a good dog for a townhouse. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily. He loves being around other greyhounds and dogs and is much more happy and waggie when they are around. He was a bit more reserved at his first foster family's home where he was an only dog. Dudley is an adorable, loving guy that is already home acclimated.  He is terrific with small children and dogs of any size, even those around him who may be very energetic and playful.  He currently needs a daily thyroid pill which is very inexpensive. The good pictures of Dudley are all from when he first arrived from the track. Some photos of him after his return and his ongoing recovery are in his other pictures. 

Update Jan 14th: Dudley is eating well and has soft beds to lay on now. Most of his pressure sores are scabbed over. He still has a long way to go but looks like he is slowly putting on weight. 

Update Jan 20th: Dudley is still doing great and has put on 10lbs. He weighs 52lbs now! Our vet is very pleased with his progress. 

Update Jan 26th Owner Jamie Pilgrim of Pickens pled guilty to felony animal cruelty. 

Update Feb 3rd Dudley has a new family pending his release from the vet! The Jacobson family of Irmo SC wanted to make his adoption final on the day of his Dashing For Dudley Fundraiser when they met him. He can't go home with them and their other greyhounds quite yet because our vet wants him to stay close until he has put on more weight. His adoption contract has been signed and completed so he officially has a family now and will be home very soon. Dudley's generous fans raised over $1000 for him during the fund raiser!!
