Additional Details:

Gimpy just arrived with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Mator from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. Gimpy never actually had an official race at the track due to an old injury to her right front foot. It looks like she may have been stepped on by another dog or maybe she kicked something while running and damaged several toes. One toe had been partially amputated by a vet at some point, but because she was a pup, the bone continued to grow and was causing some pain. Our vet amputated more of the worst toe on June 13th and she is healed up and ready to go home now. She does still hold up the foot when standing and limps some and is likely to always do that. It really doesn't slow her down. She loves to run and play and doesn't worry too much about her foot. She loves going for walks and gets so excited to see the leash. Gimpy's sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. Gimpy is a tiny girl who weighed just 56lbs at the vet. She is young and turned 2 on April 4th. Gimpy passed her cat and small dog tests at the track. She was fostered with a cat in her first foster home and did fine with it. She doesn't seem to be stressed by much and was roaching (Sleeping on her back with her feet in the air which is the sign of a relaxed happy greyhound). Gimpy is doing great on hardwood floors. Although Gimpy absolutely loves kids, she gets excited and jumps sometimes, so might accidentally knock over a toddler. We think she would do fine in a home with slightly older kids. She is friendly and goes right up to everyone for attention and seems like she is going to be a very loving pet and companion.
