Lipp just arrived from Bolton Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race track. He is an all white male with only some tiny speckles on his ears and no actual spots. He raced 148 races. He was a pretty good racer and got up to the top A level briefly a couple of times. He was mainly competitive at the lower levels. Lipp raced at 73lbs. His sire is Hi Noon Hero and his dam is Atascocita Dory. LIpp passed his cat test without much more than an ear prick in the cat's direction so should be OK to live with cats. He is also good with small dogs. He loves having other dogs around and they seem to help his confidence so we would love to find a home for him with another dog. He can be timid at first and is a very sensitive guy that startles easily and tends to overreact to things that startle him. A child threw a toy for another dog and it scared him. Lipp wouldn't come out of is crate if any of the kids were around for a couple of days after that. His foster dad came home late and night and surprised him. Lipp didn't want him to come near him for a couple days. Lipp loves his foster mom and likes to stay close to her though. He is gradually warming back up to the kids and cautiously is coming back up to them for petting so he does warm back up with time. He had a little set back when one of the kids ran up close to him and he got scared again. Because he is so sensitive we think he would do best in a quiet, adult only home that doesn't have fast moving or loud kids. Lipp seems like he would be a good watch dog because he will bark an alarm. Lipp can be a bit whiney in his crate so wouldn't be a good dog for an apartment or townhouse. Lip is a sweet, sensitive guy that was friendly at the racing kennel where he was comfortable. He is just stressed by all the changes in his life and doesn't handle change well so will need a family that will patiently give him time to warm up.

Gardenia

7
Color/Gender:
Brindle Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Testing
Fostered by (location):
Will be McGraw, Columbia SC
Adoption Status: In Process to the Cairns Family of Elgin SC

Gardenia arrived with her sister Blast. She retired from the Wheeling Race Track back in January of 2015 after she was run into by another dog in a race and broke her hock. She went back to the farm for rehab and she has just been hanging out there as a pet for the last 3 years. Gardenia also raced at Tri State in WV. She has 57 races listed and got up to the top AA level at Tri State. She also ran in one stakes race so she was a good racer that would have had a much longer career if she hadn't had the injury. She is a cute brindle girl that has a pure white face and white on her legs and throughout her brindle fur giving her the prettiest look. She won't turn 8 until December 13th so has gone prematurely white. She is starting to look more like a blue brindle with all the gray. She raced at 60lbs. Gardenia's sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is AMF Bone Bruise. Gardenia passed the cat test with just some curious sniffing at first, when the cat slapped toward her she jumped back and didn't want to get close to the cat again. The cat didn't actually even slap her. She has been fine with the small dog in her foster home too. She was a little nervous around small kids and chose not to interact with them most of the time. Gardenia is pretty friendly but is a little less confident at first than her vivacious sister Blast and seems to be a little more cautious of trying new things like steps at first. She has not tried to hug anyone so far like her sister does. She seems pretty laid back, well behaved and good on leash. Her leg has been healed for 3 years now and she is fine to run and play on it and it doesn't slow her down.

Moses just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He also raced at Mardi Gras and Palm Beach. He is a smaller male that raced at just 68lbs. Moses had a pretty long career of 108 races. That is relative though, each race takes around 30 seconds, so just 54 minutes of actual racing total over the last 2 years. He started out at the better tracks in July of 2016, and then was moved to a lower end track where he would be more competitive and retired on June 22nd 2018. He did get up to the top A level at that track though. His sire is the famous DJays Octane and his dam is Ucme Mini Me. His sister Alice is also available for adoption. Moses will turn 4 on October 5th. Moses is a friendly, happy guy. He passed his initial cat test but was too interested in the cat in his adoptive home be able to live with cats so he is now looking for a home with no cats.
