Additional Details:

Denton just arrived from the Roban Farm in Florida. He never raced. His tattoos are 74185 - 109H and he was born on October 29th of 2019 so is very young and just turned 1 in October. His sire is the famous SH Avatar and his dam is Biodiesel. Denton had runny eyes and skin allergies off and on, then had a bad reaction to a wormer (Moxidectin) he was given. His adoptive owner should not use Moxidectin or Heartworm preventatives containing Ivermectin on him. Denton recovered completely and seems fine now. His racing owner decided not race him because of his sensitivities, so Denton is looking for a pet home. He was curious and did a lot of sniffing when he met a cat, but passed his initial cat test. He was more excitable around the small, fast moving dog, but it seemed to be more puppy play drive than prey drive. His foster home has small dogs and will see how trainable he is with her dogs. Our vet has checked him and he does have thin hair but no sign of skin irritation. His eyes do get a little discharge from time to time and the results of a tear test came back slightly dry which can be caused by allergies. Our vet gave him some eye drops to try and we are waiting on the results of some other tests. She felt that his allergies were minor and shouldn't prevent him from being adopted. Denton seems sweet and pretty calm for his age. He is still in the puppy chewing stage and needs strong fleece bedding to prevent shredding. Because of his chewing he needs to be supervised in the house until he learns what is OK to chew on and what is not. He seems to prefer wood and fabric items. Denton wants to please and has been responding quickly to training in his foster home. He has done some crying and howling in his kennel, so may not be able to live in an apartment or townhouse. He quickly figured out to go to the door and bark when he needed to go outside to potty. Denton is very sweet and affectionate. His head will be in your lap anytime you sit down. He loves to play fetch and loves playing with other dogs. Denton is young and still has a playful puppy side.
