Additional Details:

McCoy was a dark brindle male that came from the Orlando race track. He raced at 69lbs.  McCoy was born on July 1st 2008. He passed his cat and small dog test and was great with the small white dog he is living with in his foster home and the animals at the vet clinic he was boarded at. He was a friendly boy that wags his tail a lot but he wasn't a confident guy at all. He loved people and wanted to interact but circled around play bowing and trying to get their attention at a bit of a distance at first. Once he warmed up he would play and get quite silly. He had the most gentle loving eyes and cute puppy face. McCoy arrived with a tail injury. We tried to get it to heal up for a month but he wags so hard that he kept injuring it again. We ended up having to amputate his tail. It is pretty common to see greyhounds with no tail and is the mark of a very happy waggy dog. McCoy was adopted 1/1/12 but sadly passed away due to bone cancer shortly after adoption near his 4th birthday.
