Additional Details:

Skorsky's litter was all named for the characters in the Netflix series House of Cards. We already placed her brother Frank Underwood. She raced 71 races at the Sanford Orlando Race Track in the Bolton Kennel. She got up to A level briefly. Her last race was in early September and she didn't do well, so her trainer gave her a break from racing in hopes she would do better. She is so timid that her trainer figured that something had scared Skorsky. They have tried her in a couple of schooling races in hopes of getting her back into racing, but her heart is still not in it, so they decided to just retired her. Skorsky raced at 68lbs and turned 3 on October 29th. She is a stocky muscular girl. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is D's Honey Badger. She can be a little standoffish with strangers, but once she warms up is really sweet and playful. Her foster home says she is very sensitive to body language and she can't approach Skorsky directly without her shying away. She is food motivated and will take treats from her hand though. Skorsky walks well on leash and will potty on leash although she keeps her eye on her foster mom and is more comfortable if she is not facing her. She likes her crate and chooses to spend time in an open crate. She is the typical genetically shy greyhound, like shy people they just need time to warm up. Skorsky will need a family that is OK with her even if she never becomes a social butterfly. She was interested in the cats when she met them but corrected easily. She is fostered with several cats so her foster mom is getting her used to being around them and believes she will be fine with supervision.
