Additional Details:

Ritzy just arrived from the Blanchard kennel at the Wheeling WV race track. She raced a total of 56 races there and at Orange Park in Jacksonville FL. Ritzy was good getting up to the top AA level at one of the top tracks in the country. She even competed in one Stakes race. Her last win was in early September though and she gradually started dropping levels. When her hock seemed sore after a race in December, they decided to go ahead and retired her. The soreness in her hock only lasted a few days and there is not even a limp now. Ritzy is a tall girl that raced at 66lbs. She will turn 3 on February 20th. Her sire is Pat C Sabbath and her dam is Hurricane Riot. One of our volunteers adopted her grandmother Audacious when she retired. Ritzy is a sweet girl that just stares up at you with her huge brown eyes. She doesn't seem to have any space issues at all because she liked her trainer to curl up in her kennel with her and snuggle. She is friendly and wags. She seems a bit submissive greeting people and other dogs with a lowered head and tail. She can be whiny in her kennel, so may not be a good dog for apartment living. Ritzy has been great with the small white dog she was fostered with, she also passed her cat test with just some casual sniffing and didn't seem very interested at all. Her trainer reports that she got along good with the other dogs at the kennel and never caused any problems there. Her trainer said she was clean and didn't have accidents in the kennel either. More as we get to know her.
