Additional Details:

Gimpy came in with her two sisters Lee Peg Creator and Lee Peg Mator from the King Kennel at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Florida. Gimpy never actually had an official race at the track due to an old injury to her right front foot. It looks like she may have been stepped on by another dog or maybe she kicked something while running and damaged several toes as a puppy which gave her her name. One toe had been partially amputated by a vet at some point, but because she was a pup, the bone continued to grow and was causing some pain. One of our vets did another incomplete amputation June 13th but it didn't heal up well. We took her to a specialist for a complete toe amputation at the end of October and also had a tendon surgery performed on her foot to flatten out her toes to make walking more comfortable. She developed corns on her feet due to the gait problems she was having and the tendon surgery will help with those. So she is on restricted exercise temporarily until her toes heal up from her most recent surgery. Before the surgery she was still holding up the foot when standing and had a pronounced limp when walking on the foot due to the incomplete amputation and the corns on her good toes. Corns feel like walking on tiny rocks all the time. Even with all her foot problems she rarely slows down. She loves to run and play and doesn't worry too much about her foot. She loves going for walks and gets so excited to see the leash.  After we took care of her toe we changed her name to Lucky which was more fitting for her. Lucky is full of energy and is a real love to everyone who meets her. Whoever meets this happy little girly is going to fall madly in love! So much happiness and personality in this one. Lucky's sire is the famous Trent Lee and her dam is Dakota's Peggey. She is a tiny girl who weighed just 56lbs at the vet. Lucky is young and turned 2 on April 4th. She passed her cat and small dog tests at the track. She was fostered with a cat in her first foster home and did fine with it. Lucky doesn't seem to be stressed by much and was roaching (Sleeping on her back with her feet in the air which is the sign of a relaxed happy greyhound). Lucky is doing great on hardwood floors. She gets excited and jumps on people sometimes, so it is a good thing she is a tiny girl. She doesn't like to be bothered while lying down, so needs to be placed in a family with older kids capable of understand the saying "let a sleeping dog lie" or placed with no kids.  She is friendly and goes right up to everyone for attention and seems like she is going to be a very loving pet and companion. This is the cutest little girl!
