Additional Details:

Train originally raced at Orange Park in Jacksonville and raced 21 races without winning one. He retired back in May of 2005 and has been in a home since then. Sadly he has been returned to his adoption group and is looking for a new home now. We are helping his group Greyhound Lifesavers find a home for this older gentleman by advertising him on our page for them. He just turned 11 on April 26th. His sire is Craigie Whistler and his dam is Miz Mandy. Train raced at 77lbs. He is a very friendly loving guy that is calm and sweet but still has the occasional burst of playfulness. Train will snuggle at night with you if that is allowed. He is OK with kids but needs a quiet home with older respectful kids. He is still a little too interested in chasing cats and smaller dogs to be able to live with them. He has been an only dog for a long time so would be fine with as an only dog, but he is doing well with the other greyhounds in his foster home. He is good on leash and is quiet and well behaved so may be OK for apartment or townhome living but because of his age would do better with a ground floor apartment. He still likes to run and play sometimes so access to a fenced area for an occasional run would be a plus. Train is a calm older guy that is very well behaved. His only bad habit is that he loves to chew on cardboard boxes. He would love a quiet home where he can snuggle and get plenty of ear scritches.
