Additional Details:

Shades just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. She has 99 races listed and also raced at Wheeling Downs in WV. She was a very good racer that got up to A level at Wheeling, which is quite the accomplishment, since it is a fast track. Her last race was Nov 9th and she finished so far back that she was out of the picture. When you see Shades you understand where her name came from. She has brindle spots over each eye that look a lot like sunglasses and she is mostly white otherwise. Her sire is Super Lee and her dam is Briecat. Shades will turn 4 on May 28th and raced at 62lbs. Shades passed her cat test with only a little initial curiosity about them so should do OK with some initial supervision. She also passed her small dog test and spent the weekend with a small dog in a home and was fine. Shades can be grumpy about her space and doesn't care for kids invading her space, so will need a home with no little kids. She has gotten along fine playing with other dogs in her foster home but doesn't like other dogs coming around her when she is eating or laying down. She is a beautiful girl and seems to know it. She can be a bit of a diva. She loves adults and will seek out affection by putting her head in your lap to be petted and her preference is to be with her people if she is awake. She is very laid back and calm and does nap a lot. She does roo if left alone in her crate so may not be the best dog for apartment living. We found out on a recent walk that Shades loves water and will walk right into a lake or stream to cool off even if the water is pretty cold.
