Additional Details:

Mandate just arrived from the adoption kennel at the Sanford Orlando race track. He has been there since he retired in March waiting on an adoption group or adopter to pick him. Because he is a big black male, he was overlooked. He raced at Southland in Arkansas and Derby Lane in Fl too. He raced 51 races but didn't win many. Mandate is a shiny, black boy that is very tall. He only raced at 76lbs but towers over most other greyhounds because of the length of his legs. He is just stunning with a personality to match. He was an adoption kennel favorite because of his great personality - friendly and fun- without being hyper or obnoxious. He is a silly boy that loves people. He doesn't seem to have any problem sharing space with other dogs and humans. The other dogs on the haul didn't want him to lay down close to them so he stood most of the way to avoid trouble. When he finally found a spot to lay down he never fussed at any of the other dogs for stepping on him or bothering him. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Mon Manny and his dam is Soda Sipper. Mandate passed his cat and small dog test easily and didn't seem to be interested in chasing either. He responded well to the baby in his foster home too. So far he has been very quiet in his kennel so might be a good apartment dog. This is a drop dead gorgeous guy with a personality to match! More as we get to know him.
