Additional Details:

Swiper originally retired in July of 2015 from the Orlando race track, where she raced 73 races. She raced at a bunch of other tracks Mardi Gras and Palm Beach, Flagler, Naples-Ft. Myers and Derby Lane. Swiper just turned 10 on August 5th and weighs 60lbs. Her sire is NMS Sweet Thing and her dam is Voo Doo von Bonz. Swiper has been in an adoptive home since September of 2015. We were asked to help her find another home because her family had a baby. Swiper was very good with the baby and they slept together on the bed. As the baby became a toddler and got more mobile it started bothering Swiper. Her family say it is definitely the toddler in this case and not the dog. The toddler just doesn't understand that she can't do mean things to the dog and won't leave her alone even with constant supervision. They want Swiper to have a home where she can relax and be comfortable without a small child bothering her. Swiper was used to being around her trainer's older kids at the racing kennel and liked them. So she might be fine with older kids. She was afraid of the cats she met and just wanted to stay away from them so she could be integrated into a home with cats. She did fine with the small dog she met.Swiper is calm and friendly and quiet in her crate. Swiper is a great girl that is very well behaved. She was pretty stressed and took a couple days to come out of her shell and eat when she first arrived in foster care. Because she is a senior, Swiper qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $250. She has been checked by our vet and has a clean bill of health. She is up to date on all shots and had a fresh dental.
