Special Needs - Seizures! Roar came in from the Orange Park Race Track Adoption Kennel in Jacksonville Florida. He raced 53 races there. Roar wasn't a great racer, racing mainly in the C and D levels but he did win his last race on Dec 3rd of 2016. He was retired then because he had a seizure in the kennel. We were hopeful that the seizure was a one time thing. He didn't have any more seizures until March 13th when he started having one after another, just minutes apart, for nearly 24 hours. It took 3 seizure medications to get them to stop. He has had a few seizures since and our vets are working on getting his medication correct. The goal is to find the lowest dose that will keep him seizure free while keeping him as alert as possible. He will always have to be on seizure medications. Roar will be exceptionally calm and laid back due to the sedating effect of his medications though. Although he enjoys walks he would be a great choice for a family that isn't able to do a lot of exercise with a dog. Roar is a little guy that raced at just 66lbs. He travels well and is super sweet. Roar kennels well and loves his crate and would be an excellent only dog because he has no problem with being left alone in his kennel according to his foster mom's video monitor. His sire is the very famous Flying Penske and his dam is Lee Judy. He will turn 3 on June 26th. Roar is a very good foster, 'perfect" according to his foster mom. At first he wouldn't lay on the dog beds in his foster home and liked to go back in his crate to sleep. They moved the crate and put a dog bed in its place and he went and laid on it right way. Location is everything. The rare times Roar does anything he shouldn't, he responds well to gentle corrections. He responds well to his name and seems like a very sweet, easy, guy that would be a great first or 4th greyhound. He gets along great with all the dogs he has met so far. He also passed his cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Roar just recently want on a beach trip with his foster mom. He did great traveling and enjoyed 2 mile beach walks with her. Roar is a wonderful, friendly, happy boy that couldn't be any sweeter! One of his littermates took the tip off of one of his ears when he was young.

Apricot came in from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She raced 126 races and also raced in Sarasota and Naples Ft. Myers. She was pretty good getting up to the top A level briefly. Her last race was November 4th and she had been at the track waiting on a group to take her since then. She is 3 and won't turn 4 until July 9th. Her sire is Defrim Bale and her dam is Brandy of Ruckus. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be OK to live with either.  She crates quietly so may be a good apartment dog. She pulls a bit on leash at first but is getting better with a few reminders. She goes outside to potty nicely and pees a small amount several times in different places. So she may not kill grass as badly as females that empty everything in one place. Apricot is happy and waggy girl. She corrects easily if she does anything wrong. Apricot gets silly and bouncy when she greets you in the morning or when you come home but quickly calms down. When left alone, she will sometimes carry on a conversation with herself with growly noises and soft, quiet, barks. She is such a cute girl with a cute personality to match.
