Additional Details:

Hero came in to our group as a result of the Mobile Alabama track being shut down. He raced 32 races and also raced briefly at Ebro. He wasn't a very good racer and only won 2 races in his career. Hero has a meaningful name that was chosen by one of our local volunteers and adopters that is a doctor that had open heart surgery as a child and now works with children because of that. That is why we ended up getting him to place. Hero is a gorgeous white boy with black spots that raced at 76lbs. His sire is Destini Fireball and his dam is KB's Mercedistar. He is young and won't turn 3 until November 9th. According to his trainer Hero is very shy at first and will need some time to warm up to new people. His foster home says that he is jumpy and will shy away if approached directly, but has been curious enough to check out things and approach her. He is a very shy boy though that is probably going to want to be a home body and will prefer staying home with his family and in familiar areas. Once he warms up we are told that he will be a velcro dog and want to stay close. Nothing bad has ever happened to Hero, he is just a genetically shy guy that is timid and sensitive and will need time to warm up to his new family.
