Special Senior! Witty is a girl that was originally placed by another group up North NGAP. Her owner moved to NC and was only able to keep two of her dogs where she moved and had to re-home Witty. She said that Witty is a goofy, playful girl. Witty retired from the Daytona Beach Race Track in January of 2012. She raced 55 races there and only won 2 of those. She did place some even if she didn't win, so was able to keep racing for a little while. She is a black female that is starting to get white in circles around her eyes giving her a very cute goggle look. Witty raced at 65lbs and turned 9 on April 16th. Since she is an older girl she qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250. Her sire is Tempo Petrocelli and her dam is LookButDontTouch. She is already spayed, but she will get a fresh dental, blood work, heart worm test and anything else she needs before she is adopted. Witty injured her tail at some point previously and had to have it removed so she has a cute little nub now. More as we get to know her.

Hooyah is an extra large, red brindle, male that came in from the Melbourne Race Track in FL. He also raced at Mardi Gras. Hooyah only raced 11 races, winning only one of those and usually finishing toward the back of the pack. He was retired young when he was just 2 years old. He has been in an adoptive home since June of 2017 and they have been calling him Butler. Hooyah celebrated his 3rd birthday on March 19th. He raced at a whopping 85lbs. His sire is the famous Djays Octane and his dam is Killer Roma. Hooyah a calm, well behaved guy. He wanted to snuggle on the car trip and stood with his head on the driver's shoulder a lot of the trip. While he was at the vet one of the clinic cats befriended him and curled up with him while he was coming out of his anesthesia. He seems fine with cats and small dogs too. Hooyah is friendly with people but can be timid in new situations. He is very afraid of walking on shiny floors and just freezes. Most greyhounds do this and relax with time and eventually do OK on shiny floors, but that hasn't been the case with Hooyah. Even after living in a house with shiny floors, he can't seem to get brave enough to do them. He is going to need a home with carpet or strategically placed area rugs so he doesn't have to walk on shiny floors. Hooyah is not very good on stairs either so would do better in a one story house. He can do a few stairs to get outside to go potty just fine but long flights of stairs are just too scary for him. Hooyah has an interesting brindle coat. He has very little striping and is mostly red on one side with more striping and more brindle on the other. Be sure to click on his other pictures to see the difference. It almost looks like you are looking at a completely different dog from one side to the other. Hooyah loved the kids in his first foster home. He is very good about doing his business outside on leash so doesn't require a fenced yard. Hooyah is being returned due to some neck pain he has been having. His owners have been taking him to the vet but the vet has been unable to figure out the cause of the neck pain. He has been responding well to pain medication but that doesn't fix the problem. For now he needs some chiropractic to see if that helps and possibly a more expensive MRI if the chiropractic doesn't relieve the pain. He will be on vet hold until we are able to get to the bottom of what is causing his pain.
