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 back leg in a race on November 11th. He had surgery to repair the leg at a specialist in Jacksonville before coming to us. After surgery he was moved to Charlotte for rehab and his splint changes. 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's leg is doing great and has healed up completely. He has been released by our vet for adoption for awhile now. He should be able to run and play normally. He is a very laid back guy and slept 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 the different breeds of dogs in his foster home and is great in his crate. Desoto is a sweet loving guy that can be just a little timid at first with strangers. He does warm up fast to his family though but people coming to meet him should expect him to be a little standoffish at first.
