Additional Details:

Groomsman just arrived from the Birmingham Race Track. He is very young and won't turn 2 until October 5th. He didn't actually ever have an official race, so either was too slow or just not that interested in chasing during training. Groomsman is an extra large guy that is very tall so that may have made it more difficult for him to run especially in the turns. He is still a skinny pup that needs to fill out some and we would guess a good weight for him would be in the upper 80s to 90lbs. His sire is Kiowa Myth and his dam is Kiowa Bride. He is a grandson of the famous Flying Hydrogen that one of our volunteers owned after retirement. Groomsman is very good on leash and pretty calm and well behaved for such a young guy. He still has the submissive puppy attitude and will lower his head submissively when he comes up for petting. He is very friendly and seems to like people and kids. He passed his cat and small dog tests easily but we have noticed in foster care that he still has a little interest when they run around him so he needs careful supervision at first. He was a little nervous at first in a home environment but he gets more playful and silly after a few days. He just has the sweetest personality. Groomsman kennels very quietly, even when he is alone. He is very clean in his crate and will whine to let you know he has to go out. That is the only time he makes noise in the kennel though. He is a natural sitter which is a position that is not comfortable for most greyhounds. He sometimes will do a little sideways Elvis grin just on one side. This is the prettiest boy that seems like he will do well in just about any situation. We just love him!
