Additional Details:

Special Senior! Fitz initially came in from Derby Lane in Florida. He is a big guy that raced at 82lbs. His sire is Group Rooster and his Dam is Cool Princess. Fitz's will turn 10 on May 2nd and has been in his adoptive home since November of 2012. His family adopted his brother Oneco Kennedy - Ned when he retired in 2014 too. Both dogs are being returned to us because their family has a 1 year old child and doesn't have time to exercise and supervise the dogs now. Now that the baby is mobile, it has become annoying to the dogs and it has been growled at. Although Fitz is normally friendly and happy around kids, he would prefer a home without small kids that might crawl on him or fall on him. Fitz is a very loving boy that settled right into foster care initially without any problems at all. His foster dad thought he would be a great dog for a first time greyhound owner because he was so good and such an easy dog. He gives little kisses and of the two brothers is the more laid back and less needy of the two. Fitz is a gentle giant. He crates nicely and is quiet in his crate so might do OK in an apartment or townhome. He does stairs very well too. Fitz is a great guy that passed his cat and small dog tests so should be able to live with either but we will retest when he arrives to be sure since he hasn't been living with either. The photos of him were from when he first arrived so we will get pictures and complete vetting done once he arrives. Because Fitz is a senior he qualifies for our reduced adoption donation of $250.
