Additional Details:

Destin came in from Eric Griffin's kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 84 races, starting out his career at Wheeling Downs in WV, then going to Southland in Arkansas and finally to Orange Park. He got up to the top A level, so was pretty good. He was racing in A, in his last race on November 8th, when another dog ran into him and dislocated his toe. The toe was put back in place before we got him. Our vet examined it and felt it is healing up nicely and shouldn't cause him any more trouble. Desoto is a sweet, friendly, happy, confident boy that raced at 71lbs and turned 3 on July 26th. His sire is the famous KC and All and his dam is WW'sbemasunshine. Destin rode well during transport and jumped right into the van. He is very social and goes straight up to everyone he sees for attention. Destin is curious about everything but walks pretty good on leash and doesn't pull much. He was too interested in the cats at the vet's office to pass his cat test. He did fine with the small white dog he met. He just sniffed and went on to check out the rest of the house. He is being fostered with small kids and seems to like them. He is getting along with the other greyhounds and whippets in his foster home. He proceeds cautiously on wood floors after slipping a few times, but that is the only thing we had seen that makes him at all nervous. He does like to get up on furniture and climbed right up onto the couch to make himself at home. He did bark some at first in his foster home so may not be suitable for apartment living. He is a great guy that has settled into foster care very easily and seems like he will make an easy addition to just about any home. Gorgeous guy with a wonderful personality too!
