SPECIAL NEEDS Placement. Phil is located in a foster home with Adoptable Greythounds of Florida in the Tampa Florida area. Because of his special needs, he was returned by his previous owners and has been in foster care for a long time. We offered to try to get the word out to some of our adopters in hopes we can help him find a home that can work with him. This would be an adoption through the group in Florida and not Greyhound Crossroads. Phil needs a dog experienced home, that is willing to work with him. He has severe separation anxiety. Having other dogs around helps Phil some, but it is not 100 percent. He has too high of a prey drive to live with small dogs or cats. Phil would do best in a home with a calm, large, female dog and a family that is home a lot. He does not do well being crated. Phil has shown some resource guarding behavior, with his toys, so he can't be placed in a home with children. As you can see, Phil has a lot of limitations, but we are sure there is a perfect home for him out there. Phil has positives too. He absolutely loves people, leaning on you, going for walks. Dogs like Phil love too much, which cause their separation anxiety. He gets along well with other Greys in social situations.  

Phil raced in the US at the Sarasota Race Track and raced just 9 races. He didn't win any of them but managed to come in 3rd a couple of times. He raced his last race on April 30 2019 and was retired then and was in an adoptive home for years until he was returned. Phil is 7 years old, born 1/13/17. He raced at 73lbs. HIs sire is Swahili Eile and his dam is Kiowa Wildbraves.
