Miles just came in from the Sanford Orlando Race Track Kennel. He also raced at Derby Lane and Palm Beach in Florida. Miles has been promised to our group since he was a puppy. He was named for one of our volunteer's dogs that passed away. We first met Miles at around 8 months old at his farm in Texas and have followed him growing up through training and his career of 81 races. We have photos of him along the way and he even has his own Facebook page for his followers. Miles will turn 4 on December 10th. His sire is the famous Trent Lee and his dam is CTW Flirtatious. Miles is a smaller guy that raced at just 68lbs and is a stocky muscular guy, so is pretty short for that weight. He wasn't a great racer, mainly winning at the lower levels and only briefly getting up into the top A level one time. He was retired because he broke a back toe in his last race. Our vet amputated that toe and unless you count the toes you won't even notice one is missing. He definitely doesn't notice and has felt better since the problem toe came off. He is still on a vet hold until his stitches come out, but is nearly healed up. Miles is a very outgoing guy that loves everyone he meets, kids and adults alike. He bounces happily to see you when you get home, but calms down nicely. He will stand next to you for petting for nearly as long as you will pet him. Although he is mostly quiet in his crate and crates well, he sometimes makes some noise. He probably wouldn't be a good apartment dog, because when he barks, it is when he can hear or see his foster family outside in the yard. He wants to be outside too. He does potty nicely on walks and walks nicely on leash so wouldn't require a fenced yard. He gets along great with other dogs large and small and has been living with an Italian Greyhound in his foster home. He passed his cat test easily with a still cat and even a walking cat. He just casually sniffed without much interest. After the test was over, he saw another cat run across the room and got excited though. He definitely will need some further training and close supervision in a home with a playful cat that runs around. Miles is a very sweet boy that doesn't seem to be worried or nervous and loves people.

Fuzzy just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She also raced at Dubuque and Naples Ft Myers. Fuzzy raced 131 races and won some. She competed in a couple of stakes races too. Fuzzy raced at 61lbs and will turn 4 on December 5th. Her sire is Boc's Blast Off and her dam is Superior Peace. Fuzzy is very happy and outgoing and loves attention. She loves other dogs of all sizes and gets playful and bouncy wanting to play with them. She passed her cat easily and wanted nothing to do with the cat after her first sniff led to a smack by the cat. She is being fostered with cats and is doing great with them. Fuzzy passed her test with small dogs as well, but because of her playfulness with other dogs really tiny dogs might get accidentally hurt. She would love a home with a medium or large dog though. Fuzzy crates nicely and loves belly and ear rubs. She is a real sweetheart!!!

Kelsos Cluster

Cluster
Age:

Color/Gender:
Black Female

Kovacs, Easley SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Cluster just arrived from the adoption kennel at the Jacksonville Race Course. She raced in the Lester Raines Kennel but retired in October of 2018. She was placed locally and was with her adopter in Jacksonville for about 4 months before being returned to the track adoption kennel. We just picked her up on a group track trip and brought her into a foster home, so she didn't have to stay in the kennel. Cluster is a gorgeous, shiny, black female with a small white blaze on her nose, white chest and white socks. Her sire is BD's Grayson and her dam is Kelsos Jenna. We placed her littermate Kelsos Rudy last November and a dog that has the same mom Kelsos BlueSmoke too. Cluster is a confident, happy girl. She can be a bit bossy at first so may need to be in a home with a male dog that doesn't mind having a bossy girlfriend (most don't) or a more submissive female. Cluster lived as an only dog with her previous family but she seems to be more comfortable with other dogs around and is doing great in her foster home with several other dogs. Cluster is VERY outgoing with people and doesn't seem to be stressed by the move from Florida into a foster home. She prances into a new home with her head and tail high and wagging. She goes straight up to everyone she meets happily for affection and usually tries to put her paws up on your chest to give hugs. We are discouraging the hugs, since she is a big dog, even though it is pretty sweet and cute. Her previous owner said she had growled a few times when being handled by strangers, but the original adoption kennel never saw any growls directed at humans and we haven't either. We weren't able to get much info on context of when the growls occurred from her, but in our experience, it usually happens when a dog is laying down or sleeping. She loved the kids she was introduced to, but because of the reported growls, we think a home without small kids would be best for her. She has been fine with the small dogs she has met but still needs testing with cats. This girl is personality plus and so stunning! If you want a happy fun girl that is full of personality, Cluster could be the one.
