Additional Details:

Annika came in from the Jacksonville Race Track. She was a very successful racer and raced more than 240 races. It is pretty unusual for a racer to continue racing well into their 5th year and she turned 5 on June 2nd. DOB June 5, 2007. Annika was still running OK and making money for her trainer, but they chose to go ahead and retire her so she could get her own family and couch. She is a beautiful, muscular girl that is very short but stocky and raced at 58lbs. She is calm but very friendly and seems to have an excellent personality and is just gorgeous. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is GS Gladice. Annika was a special order for one of our families that met her at the race track and has been waiting on her to retire. She is very well-behaved as a foster in their home, and is very good with their baby and even guinea pigs. She will be staying!

Her Pedigree

Annika passed away on March 24th of 2016 from Acute Leptospirosis brought into her yard by a wild animal. Both greyhounds in the family were infected with it, but by the time the vet figured out what it was, Annika was already gone. We are hoping her brother Clyde makes a full recovery.
