Additional Details:

T Man just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park Track in Florida. He is a very young guy that never had an official race. T Man was retired due to being very shy. He would run away from people trying to catch him at the end of races. He is a very shy boy and the move to the track from the farm was just too much for him. T Man is very nervous around people he doesn't know. He won't even turn 2 until November 4th, so is still a pup. His sire is Touch Tackle and his dam is DK's Tanstafel.  T Man is a genetically shy dog that isn't going to become a social butterfly with a few days or weeks. His family will need to be understanding and committed to working with him long term until he gets comfortable with them. It may take weeks, months or even a year. He may never be comfortable enough to want to go places outside his home and his family needs to be OK with him just the way he is and not expect him to change much. T Man is similar to a human with an anxiety disorder.  He is timid and shy in social settings and he is very uncomfortable outside of his familiar surroundings. This is inherited shyness and not from anything anyone did to him. Most shy dogs are also too timid to chase cats and small dogs so are able to live with them just fine. He is being fostered with cats. Since T Man never raced we don't have a racing weight for him. His foster mom is leash walking him to potty inside her fenced yard until he gets comfortable enough to let her catch him. Because he is so timid he is likely to be scared of the fast movements and loud noises that children and their toys and friends make. We would prefer to put him into a quiet home with older calm kids or no kids.
