Additional Details:

Lenny is a red fawn male that came in from the Birmingham race track. He raced most of his 151 races there but also raced briefly at Palm Beach, Melbourne and Daytona Beach. Lenny was a good racer quickly getting up to the top A level and winning lots of races there. He raced at 73lbs. His sire is Maryville Rumble* and his dam is Kiowa Surfingirl. Lenny passed his cat and small dog test so should be fine to live with either. They told us that Lenny can be a little timid at first but he was wagging his tail and going up to people for love when we picked him up from the hauler and at the vet's office so it doesn't take him long to warm up at all. He likes people and seems like he is going to be a very friendly loving guy. He is doing really well in foster care.

Lenny had a small growth on one of his legs that our vet removed and sent out for testing that came back as a soft tissue sarcoma, a slow growing form of cancer. This type of cancer usually responds quite well to chemo injections and usually goes into remission. Our vet has high hopes for Lenny making a complete recovery after a few more treatments. Lenny has handled the treatments well and will be on long term chemo pills for awhile. Thanks to some very generous donors Lenny's cancer treatment and medicine is taken care of and most of his adoption fee too!!
