Spitfire just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. She also raced at Southland in Arkansas, Orange Park in Florida and Tri-State in WV. She raced 77 races, mainly at the lower levels. That is why she kept moving to different tracks, in hopes that they could find somewhere that she would be competitive. When she stayed at the lowest level stay after the last three moves, she was retired. Spitfire is not actually a spitfire at all. She is really sweet and friendly and just stares up into your eyes. She really loves treats according to her trainer and she will do anything to get one. Since she is so food motivated she may be one that would enjoy obedience or trick training. She is a tiny brindle girl that raced at just 56lbs. She has cute ears that go straight up when she is curious about something and a cute curly tail. Spitfire turned 3 on November 24th. Her sire is TMC's Remedy and her dam is Asteria Drive. Spitfire seems like a very sweet girl and didn't seem to be terribly stressed by the move. Her one quirk is that she doesn't want to go into a new crate. She sets her feet and raises her head as high as possible so she won't fit through the doorway. Once in the crate she is completely fine and lays down and goes to sleep. We may try bribing her by throwing in a treat. When she was at the vet's office she was very interested in the cats she saw and they didn't think she would be OK with cats. After she actually sniffed our cat and it slapped her, she completely changed her mind though and wouldn't go anywhere near our cats again. She seemed pretty traumatized by the one light slap the cat gave her. So we think she should be at least trainable with a confident cat that would just slap her one time.

Scout just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. He also raced at Tri-State in West Virginia, and Ebro and Sarasota in Florida. He raced 66 races and did get up to the top A level briefly. Scout is a large brindle boy that raced at 79lbs. He turned 3 on September 1st. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Diamond N Ruff. Scout is a very friendly, happy guy. He is a big strong boy that needs a little work on not pulling on leash. He seems like a confident curious guy that has a great personality. He was roaching (sleeping on his back with his feet in the air) the first day if foster care. That is a sign of being very comfortable and relaxed. If he even sees you look his way he will wag his tail happily. He passed his small dog test at the track without much interest and also did fine with our small dog. He was initially very interested in the cat but did lose interest after the cat slapped him, then he checked out the rest of the room. We caught him stealing glances back at the cat so we weren't completely convinced that he had completely given up chasing the cat though. We think he probably would do better in a home with no cats. He liked the kids he met too and is used to being around the kids in his trainer's kennel.

Gunner started his career at Tri-State in WV but spent nearly all his career at Orange Park. He was a pretty good racer there, spending a lot of time at the top A level and competing in a stakes race. He broke his leg in his last race on November 27th and still placed 4th in A level. He had surgery with a specialist in Florida before coming up to us. Gunner's leg is expected to make a full recovery. He will be rehabbed in NC. It will take him a couple of months to heal up so he should be ready to go home mid February. Arrangements can be made to meet him during his recovery. Gunner's sire is Seegold Big Red and his dam is Dutch Velda. He is a happy, friendly boy that doesn't seem to be phased by much. He seems like a confident guy. Gunner traveled well and even did OK at a hotel room he stayed in overnight on the trip. This guy has personality and looks! More as we get to know him.

Fostered by (location):

Adoption Status: On Vet Hold for broken leg/ In Process to the Kaufman Family of Davidson, NC

Desoto came up from Eric Griffin's kennel at Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He raced most of his 145 races at the Caliente Track in Mexico so he may understand Spanish better than English. He also raced briefly at Wheeling Downs in WV and finally finished up his career at Orange Park. He did get up to the top A level briefly and competed in a Stakes Race. Desoto broke his leg in a race on November 11th. He had surgery to repair the leg at a specialist in Jacksonville before coming to us. He is doing fine and a full recovery is expected. After surgery he was moved to Charlotte for rehab and his splint changes. He will be on vet hold until the leg is healed, which is usually around 2 months. He should be ready to be adopted sometime in January of 2020. If you are interested in adopting then, you can schedule a meeting with him while he is healing. Desoto raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on July 21st. His sire is KC and All and his dam is WW's Baby Bonnet. Desoto is doing great in rehab. He is very laid back and sleeps through most of his splint changes. He likes people and will allow you to do just about anything to him. His foster dad says he is a great guy that would make a great first or 4th greyhound. He gets along well with other and is great in his crate. A very sweet loving boy.
