Additional Details:

Dell came from the Orlando Track. He is a rare blue brindle male that raced at 72lbs. He has 51 races listed at Palm Beach in Florida and Abilene KS. Dell's sire is Iruska All Star and his dam is WW's Oprah. Dell is actually a star, he was very good and won 5 Stakes Races in a row and was the 2012 Bob Balfe Champ! He was injured in a fall in June of last year and was sent back to the farm for rehab and has been there since. It was a sprain to his front ankle but isn't noticeable now at all. When they tried to put him back on a lure to get him back to racing he would favor that leg a bit afterward so they decided to officially retire him after a year. He is fine running and playing in the yard and the leg doesn't bother him doing that level of exercise. He would even be fine for long walks, jogs or even hikes because he is a higher energy guy. He has no restrictions. Dell has a thick fuzzy farm coat from living outside right now that is shedding out. He will be a sleek rich, deep red with gray stripes when it does. Dell did not pass his cat test so needs a home without cats. He was in a foster home with a 10lb dog and was fine with him though so should be fine in a home with small dogs. He will turn 4 on May 2nd. Dell is a happy, energetic boy that is bouncy and goofy. He did excellent on his potty training, not one mistake in the house! Dell loves to play with stuffed toys and is careful with them and doesn't tear them up. He also loves chasing a ball. He is a strong guy that is wanting to go check out everything he sees so his foster home is working on teaching him to walk on leash without pulling. Dell is very friendly and loving and will settle in the room you are in on a dog bed to stay close. This is a stunning guy that is so muscular he probably should be called Arnold. He is one of our higher energy guys which is why he got the older children only rating. He would probably be the perfect dog for a family with school age children that would want a playful fun dog. He could accidentally knock down a toddler though even though he would never intentionally hurt anyone. This is a sweet guy that would be wonderful for a home that wanted a dog to do things with like obedience or Rally. He has the energy to enjoy working and having fun with his family and isn't the typical greyhound couch potato.
