Additional Details:

Waylon is a handsome male greyhound that retired from racing in March of 2015. He raced at Dubuque, Naples Ft Myers and Mardi Gras Race Tracks mainly at the lower levels. He managed to win 5 of his 40 races. Waylon just turned 3 on September 3rd. His sire is Red Rooster Bonz and his dam is Nervous Nannie. Waylon is a very happy sweet guy and has a lot of personality. He is very friendly and gives hugs as you can see in some of his photos. He raced at 75lbs so is a mid sized guy. He showed some initial interest in the cat but quickly lost interest and showed he was much more interested in getting love from people. We think he would do fine in a home with cats with proper supervision at first. He has been fine with the small dogs he has met. Waylon has very limited eyesight and has been diagnosed by a specialist with retinal degeneration. There are many possible causes of this including inflammatory disease, retinal detachment, genetic or autoimmune disease. Time will help determine if his vision will continue to decline or remain stable. There is no treatment. The retina cannot regenerate so the damage that has occurred is permanent. It is not painful and will not cause any other systemic or ocular disease. He is able to see light and dark and large shapes. He seems to be able to see the best outside in the yard on bright days and will run and play outside. Waylon takes it all in stride and doesn't mind having limited sight. He does very well in familiar areas and with a little help can navigate on walks out of his yard. Waylon has a go with the flow personality and doesn't let cloudy vision affect his happiness one bit. He is a very sweet happy boy that loves people and attention.
