Additional Details:

Smote just retired from the Bolton Kennel at the Orange Park Race Track. He was raised at the Plum Creek Farm. Smote only raced 14 races. He got bumped in a race and was injured in July of 2019. He took time off to heal up and started racing again in October. Smote raced a few more races and even won one of those. In his last race in October he re-injured himself. He was rehabbed. He started running in some schooling (practice) races after he was healed up. He kept getting sore after his schooling sessions so they decided to retire him. Smote shows no sign of any injury. He is very large and very strong and excitable. Because he is so excitable and curious about everything, he pulls on leash and tries to go check out everything at once. He gets so happy to see you he bounces around and may jump up on you. He is a big boy racing at 84lbs and is incredibly strong. Because of his enthusiastic greetings he would not do well with toddlers, small kids or elderly people that may not be steady on their feet. He seems like a big goofy guy that would never intentionally hurt anyone but might just because he has no idea how big he is. He seems friendly and sweet and isn't intending to do the wrong thing, but is very active for a greyhound and definitely needs a strong leader that will set rules and teach him how to be calm and mannerly. Smotes sire is Dyna Double One and his dam is PJ Never Ask Why. Smote is very excitable and was pretty excited to see cats and small dogs but quickly focused on other things too. We just weren't able to get a good reading on him so need to do more testing with him before deciding if he would be able to live with either. More as we get to know him.
