This is a rare greyhound puppy! This is a very small brindle female that won't race due to being born with a deformed leg. We will have her checked to see if there is anything that can be done for the leg after she arrives. As it is, she has no idea that anything is wrong with her or her leg. It is all she has ever known, so she has adapted and runs and plays normally. She is a very happy, outgoing pup that has quite the personality according to her owner. She is only 11 weeks old so is small right now, about the size of a large cat,  but will be nearly adult sized in 6 months. Raising a greyhound pup is nothing like adopting a retired adult racer. They are hyper and can be very destructive. Imagine having a large breed puppy that can run 40 mph and needs to run and play most of the day. If their energy isn't drained in appropriate ways they will get into trouble. A large fenced yard is required for puppy adoptions. We recommend doggy daycare unless you have other dogs that will run and play with the puppy. Running and play is important to develop the strong bones and muscles they need to prevent injuries. Crating is important for potty training and when they aren't supervised to keep the puppy and your house safe. More as we get to know her.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: In Process to Halliwell Family

Templeton is from a litter that was all named for Charlotte's Web characters. Templeton was the very intelligent rat in the story. He is a very young guy that won't turn 2 until September 28th. His sire is Seldom Told and his dam is B My Erica. We met this litter of puppies a year ago, when they were small, on a trip to the Bolton Farm in Florida. Templeton never had an official race because he was just was not fast enough. He was pulled out of the one race he was supposed to race at the last minute. Several pictures of him and his litter as puppies is up at the Sanford Orlando Race Track, on the rail though. We have a photo of it in his pictures. We do have a few pictures of the litter from our trip to his farm last year. He was an excellent traveler on the trip back from Florida. Templeton seems pretty calm and quiet for such a young guy. He is a mid sized guy at 73lbs. Fearless and confident, he strolled right across the shiny hardwood floors without any trouble and the vacuum didn't phase him either. Templeton settled into his crate nicely and was quiet there too. He chatters his teeth when excited - some greyhounds do this and we think it is really cute. Templeton is a happy boy that comes running to see you with his tail wagging. Very sweet guy!

Lee Peg Goodluck
Pet/Kennel Name:
Gimpy
Age:
2
Color/Gender:
Black Female
Cat Tolerance:
Yes

Good w/ Children:

Fostered by (location):
Kaage Evans, GA
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

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.
