Additional Details:

Desoto came up from Eric Griffin's kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He raced most of his 145 races at the Caliente Track in Mexico so he may understand Spanish better than English. He also raced briefly at Wheeling Downs in WV and finally finished up his career at Orange Park. He did get up to the top A level briefly and competed in a Stakes Race. Desoto broke his leg in a race on November 11th. He had surgery to repair the leg at a specialist in Jacksonville before coming to us. He is doing fine and a full recovery is expected. After surgery he was moved to Charlotte for rehab and his splint changes. He will be on vet hold until the leg is healed, which is usually around 2 months. He should be ready to be adopted sometime in January of 2020. If you are interested in adopting then, you can schedule a meeting with him while he is healing. Desoto raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on July 21st. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Baby Bonnet. Desoto is doing great in rehab. He is very laid back and sleeps through most of his splint changes. He likes people and will allow you to do just about anything to him. His foster dad says he is a great guy that would make a great first or 4th greyhound. He gets along well with other and is great in his crate. A very sweet loving boy.
