Additional Details:

Gipper retired from the Orlando Track in April of this year. He had been waiting for in the track adoption kennel since then. He is a gorgeous white boy with a few bright red brindle spots. He is higher energy for a greyhound and is bouncy and happy. Gipper only raced 18 races at Orlando and at Dubuque in IA. He only won 2 of those. Gipper raced at 72lbs so is a mid sized guy that won't turn 3 until October 21st. His sire is Djays Octane and his dam is Antsie Nancy. Gipper was a favorite in his racing kennel and his trainer called him her "kennel boyfriend" because he was so devoted to her and wanted to be with her. He would be a great hiking or jogging partner since he isn't the typical greyhound couch potato. He might be a good obedience or agility dog for the same reason. He is very outgoing and confident. He was a bit bossy with some of the other dogs in the adoption kennel so would need to be placed with just the right dog or with no other dogs. Gipper's foster family is working on teaching him to walk nicely on leash and not to jump on people. He just gets so excited to see new friends and wants to check out everything around him. Because Gipper is bouncy and jumps on people we have him listed as no small kids. He has liked the kids he has met but would be likely to knock a small toddler down with his enthusiastic greetings. Gipper just needs plenty of exercise and some training to tone down his excitement a bit. Gipper does bark sometimes when he gets excited so would not be a good apartment dog. He did pass his cat and small dog test and was afraid of the cat after he got smacked by the cat one time. If you want a goofy, happy, boy with a lot of personality this boy is the one!
