Additional Details:

Country Gift is a friendly girl that followed her trainers around the kennel while they were doing their chores. She is a very people oriented girl and very sweet. GIft seems like the type that will enjoy running around the yard and playing with toys - a fun girl. She has enough energy for an occasional jog or hike with her family. Gift has a beautiful rich red brindle coat with white feet and tip of tail that really makes her a showy stunning girl. She was very interested in chasing the cat during her cat test at the track kennel so has too much prey drive to live in a home with cats. We will do further testing with small dogs to see how she does with them. She needs a little work on walking on leash because she pulls some but seems better already with just a little instruction. A fast learner. Gift raced at 67lbs and will be 4 August 25. Update from her foster home! Gift has been wonderful since moving into retirement. She has wonderful dog body language and moved into her foster pack with no problems at all, quickly and quietly accepting the greetings from the home dogs. She potties perfectly on leash and has already learned to be much more polite while being walked. She has been accident--free inside, crates easily, eats and takes her surgery antibiotics without complaint, and has been a wonderful houseguest. Gift would make a really wonderful choice as a first greyhound as well as acclimating quickly into an existing pack. We have no way to test her in the home with small dogs, but her responses during the vet stay didn't show any prey drive toward them (We do know she isn't cat safe). Gift is a truly beautiful dog with a sweet temperament that's ready to go home! Gift has complained a bit when left alone so probably wouldn't be the best dog for apartment or townhouse living.
