Additional Details:

Drill is an older, black, female, greyhound that only raced 4 races that we could find 3 at Tri-State and 1 at Pensacola. Even though she wasn't a great racer, she was retired to be a brood mom because she is a sister to a famous stud dog Ebony River. She had a litter of 5 pups in 2008 but those are the only ones we found. She has been living on the brood farm since then. Drill raced at 61lbs and will turn 11 on July 7th. Because she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Her sire is DK's Prime Time and her dam is Turbo Chopper. Drill was just a little overwhelmed the move to a home, but only just at first. She warms up fast and was trying to get the other dogs in her foster home to play with her right away. She is very playful for an older girl and is very sweet and loving. Drill gives kisses naturally and learned to give kisses to get treats too. She gets along well with the other greyhounds in her foster home and runs in the yard with them. She is being fostered with cats and was in a home with small dogs for a short time and does very well with both. Because she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200.

Update 4/6/16 Drill broke her femur near the hip this morning when she went out to potty. She is sedated and has had Xrays that are being sent to a specialist for a second opinion.

Update 4/7/16 Drill was diagnosed with osteosarcoma - bone cancer which caused the spontaneous fracture. There is no cure or treatment and the bone will not heal so we had to help her cross the bridge. Her foster family wanted to adopt her and will do a memorial adoption so she will be home forever.
