Additional Details:

Paradise is a greyhound puppy that was sent to the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Kennel with her brother. We are pretty sure that she and her brother were retired due to the vote in Florida to end racing. They don't appear to have anything wrong with them that would prevent them from being racers when they grow up. Paradise is a beautiful tiny black female that still has a lot of growing to do. Probably about half the size she will eventually be. She is VERY outgoing and sweet. Very excitable and VERY active. We have her listed as no small dogs or small children because she immediately jumps on them and tries to get them to play. She isn't aggressive at all, just too playful and wild. She knocked the toddlers she met down and scratched them. She did the same with the small dog she met. She is not like the calm, adult greyhounds we are used to. Puppies are very sweet but very wild and hyper like any other puppy and quickly get to full sized. Imagine a 60lb puppy that can run 45mph and likes to run and play most of the day. Greyhound puppies aren't for everyone. They need training, socialization and lots of daily exercise every day to drain their energy and teach them good manners. Paradise had not worn a collar or a leash until we got her so still has a lot to learn. She is very smart and is already learning to fetch a ball and is starting to walk better on leash instead of laying down and refusing to move like she did at first. She will need a dog experienced home that has training experience because a 5 month old dog that has never been in a home before and has no manners at all is challenging. She has been crate trained and is very good in her crate. She travels well in her crate as well. Puppies require a large fenced yard to play in. Paradise loves to chase balls and loves chasing toys.
