Additional Details:

Zorro is a dog that one of our volunteers has been waiting on to retire for awhile. He was a good racer that was racing at Southland which is the top track in the country. He got up to the top AA level and ran in a Stakes race there so he was truly one of the fastest greyhounds in the US. He broke his hock in his last race on November 18th. He was taken to an orthopedic specialist by his owner and it was determined that the break would heal best with splinting and didn't require surgery. He was sent to one of our foster homes that specialize in rehabbing injuries and was there until his leg completely healed and our vets released him in March of 2021. The Pruitt family that had been waiting on him to retire was able to adopt him at that time. Zorro is described by his trainer as a gentle giant. He raced at a whopping 88lbs so is an extra large tall guy. He is good on leash and very gentle and calm in spite of his size. His sire is the famous Bella Infrared and his dam is Fly Miley Cyrus. Zorro turned 3 on October 7th. He passed his small dog tests easily and liked the children he met. His foster dad said he would fall asleep during his splint changes and was a super easy guy to work with.
