Additional Details:

Black House is a gorgeous, large, 79lb, black male that came in from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. He only raced 26 races and also raced at the Dubuque Track. He only won 2 races in his career so was retired young. He won't turn 3 until August 24th. He is a very calm, laid back guy that is very sweet but very shy. House warmed up to his foster family after a few weeks, but gets very overwhelmed and scared in new places and can be very shy with new people. Nothing bad ever happened to him, he just has a shy, timid personality. He is more of a homebody that usually prefers his familiar environment. He does jump right in the SUV and likes to go for drives though and actually seemed to enjoy the attention of people at a recent PetSmart meet and greet. So he may eventually do better in new situations with more exposure. House does walk pretty well on harness and leash. He is doing great with the children in his foster home and the other dog. With most shy dogs, a house full of loud children may be overwhelming, so if we place him with kids it would be best if it they were quieter kids. House showed no interest in chasing cats when he met them and was more interested in getting into the safety of a familiar crate at the scary vet office. He is normally really well behaved and corrects easily if he does anything wrong. Once he warms up to you he is a happy waggy guy that is very loving. House seems like he will make a wonderful pet. He is just a very sensitive guy that will need time to warm up to new situations and a new family. He generally likes his crate and looks on it as his safe place but can make some noise in it, so probably wouldn't be the best apartment dog. House's sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Lookn Even Finer.
