Additional Details:

Irvin is one of the very last retired racers we will be getting from Florida. The majority of the racetracks in the country were in Florida and have been gradually closing down over the last 2 years due to a vote to end Greyhound Racing in the state. Derby Lane was where Irvin raced and was one of the last two tracks to remain open, closing on December 27th. The other track closed down on December 31st.  Irvin only raced 8 races for D'Arcy Kennels, and didn't win any of them. He raced at 71lbs so is a smaller guy. He won't turn 2 until March 13th. His sire is the famous Makeshift and his dam is Shanagolden. He is arriving with 2 of his littermates Harry Bosch and Reggie Woo. Irvin was way too interested in the cat to pass his cat test. He was so interested in chasing the cat, that he wouldn't back off and didn't even seem to notice when the cat slapped him for getting too close. He definitely needs a home with no kitties. He did great when meeting a small dog after a bit of sniffing to figure out what it was. He is a friendly and happy little guy that seems to love people. He also like the kids that he met. A friend was photographing races and managed to catch Irvin in one of his last races. Be sure to check out his other pictures to see them.
