Additional Details:

Liam is one of the tiniest males we have ever seen, smaller than many females at only 60lbs. He is very short and stocky for his weight, so is as short as females in the lower 50lb range. Liam raced 47 races at Palm Beach and Mardi Gras Race Tracks. He won 5 of those races and mainly just placed at the the lower levels so was retired in April of 2017. Liam initially went back to his farm until they found a group that could take him. We got him in November of 2017 and he has been in an adoptive home since December of 2017. Liam will turn 8 on September 29th, so qualifies for our reduced senior adoption fee of $250. Liam's owner has asked us for help re-homing Liam and his housemate Piper Belle because she is having to move in with an older relative to provide care for them and cannot take the dogs. His sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and his dam is Atascocita Sofia.  Liam is good with other dogs large and small, but barks at cats he sees outside, so probably needs a home with no kitties. He was a little overwhelmed and shy when he first arrived and but has a fun, loving personality once he warms up. He loves to be outside as much as possible. He loves racing around the yard and chasing squirrels. He is playful and funny and enjoys emptying his toy box one toy at a time. He enjoys tossing a ball outside. Liam is a snuggler who will curl himself up inside your arms for hugs. He loves car rides, and will curl up and sleep. He enjoys outings, but mainly he loves being in his own yard. He has perfect house manners. Liam is not comfortable around little kids - he tends to go to his crate or quiet place if kids come to visit. He is very quiet indoors and laid back. He responds to "Wait" and a whistle to come inside. We would love to place Liam and Piper Belle together since they are bonded and haven't really been separated since 2017.
