Additional Details:

Missy came in initially from the Birmingham Race Course. She only raced one of her 49 races there though. She traveled around to quite a few tracks. Missy started out at Dubuque in IA, then went to Wheeling Downs in WV, Gulf in TX and Orange Park in FL then finally Birmingham AL. She did get up to A level once at Orange Park but just wasn't a really good racer. She moved around a lot looking for a place where she would be competitive. Missy turned 3 on November 28th and raced at 65lbs. Her sire is the famous KC and All and her dam is WW's Whiteclover. She was called Minnie at the track but has since been renamed Missy by her first family. She is a pretty timid girl that will need time to warm up. Missy seems to be little more shy with men than kids and females. She was initially fostered with a calm 8 year old child. Most timid dogs are terrified around very loud fast moving small kids though so she probably needs a home with quiet older kids or no kids. Missy travels well. She is excellent on leash and goes potty on leash walks, so may do OK without a fenced yard. Missy has been in a wonderful home since October of 2018. Her family is elderly and both have fallen recently. One broke a hip and one broke a back, and one is still in the hospital. They aren't going to be able to care for a dog anymore and have asked us to find Missy a new home. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either. Missy is doing well in her foster home with some several small dogs. She comes with a big bed and some toys that were sent with her to help her with the transition. Missy is a sweet girl that will just need a little time to warm up. She has met a couple of families, but doesn't interact at all on the first meeting, so any potential families need to understand that. She is very well behaved in her foster home and once she is home with you she will warm up. She is just a shy girl that just needs a week or two in a new home to come out of her shell.
