Additional Details:

Bounce is a very tiny boy at just 61lbs. He is also very young and celebrated his 2nd birthday on May 8th. So far Bounce has been very timid and unsure of himself. His trainer says he was very shy when he arrived at the track but did warm up and became a fun boy that was friendly and sweet and liked to play. He tested very cat safe and small dog safe at the track with no interest in chasing either. He didn't have much of a chase drive at all at the track which is why he retired before his racing career really even got started.

Update from his foster home: Bounce is gradually getting over his shyness. He now approaches people for petting without dropping his head or getting down on his belly. He still is not playing with toys but will take treats out of a person's hand and gets excited when his foster family comes home. He is very calm and enjoys laying in the grass in the yard. He is interacting more with the dogs in his foster home now - not really playing with them but he will run with them. He was very respectful with a senior dog in his foster home so may be a good dog for a family with an older dog that is wanting a younger one. He seems to be most bonded to people so would probably be fine as an only dog too.
