Shy is coming in from the Mardi Gras Race Track in Florida. She only had a few schooling races there and finished so far back she was out of the picture in one and just stopped in the front stretch in her last schooling race. Since she was clearly not interested in racing, she was retired young at only a year and a half old. Shy will turn 2 on July 17th. She is a 64lb light fawn brindle girl. Her sire is the famous SH Avatar and her dam is Jet Force. When Shy arrived she was actually pretty shy and very overwhelmed. She may take a lot of time and patience to warm up to her new family. Everything seems to scare her at first. Shy passed her small dog test. She was actually afraid of the small dog but would get brave enough to cautiously sniff him. We didn't cat test her because she was so scared. We figured one test that day was enough for her.

Pet/Kennel Name:
Heather
Age:

Color/Gender:
Dark Brindle Female

Yes

Wilkie, Anderson SC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption

Heather had her last official race at the Sanford Orlando Track on June 17th. She also raced at Derby Lane and had a total of 52 races listed. Heather is a dark brindle girl that raced at 71lbs and turned 3 on October 29th. Her entire litter was named for the characters on the Netflix series House Of Cards. We have already placed her littermate Frank Underwood and her sister Skorsky. Her sire is KC and All and her dam is D's Honey Badger. Heather was a pretty good racer getting up to B level in June. She got a sore hip though so was pulled out of racing for a few months to give it time to heal. After her long break her trainers gradually got her back into shape for racing, but when she chased the lure again her hip got sore again. So now she has been retired for good. Her hip is fine for normal pet activities and she runs and plays without a limp now. Heather is a friendly girl that likes people. She sticks very close to her foster mom from the time she got to her house. She has paid no attention to the small dog in her foster home so should be OK to live with them. She was very interested in the first cat she met, but after the cat slapped her once, she wouldn't get near it again. She should be trainable with supervision with a confident cat. Heather likes kids a lot and goes right up to them and gives kisses. Even though she loves kids we think she should be placed in a home without small kids and their toys. We were told that she loves toys and will steal them and doesn't like to give them back, so we think she probably shouldn't go to a home that may have kids toys laying around. So far we have seen no sign of any possessive behavior of any kind though, she didn't even growl over a bone she was chewing on. Heather was perfectly behaved at the vet and has settled in to her foster home too. Really sweet girl!

Pet/Kennel Name:
Hitch
Age:

Adoption Status: On Vet Hold

Hitch is a handsome black guy that just arrived from the Daytona Beach Race Track. Hitch has a severe auto immune caused dry eye condition where the tear ducts suddenly stopped producing any tears at all. Our vet started him on lubricating eye drops that are given several times a day. Unfortunately the medication wasn't enough and he developed ulcers on one eye and had to have emergency surgery to save the eye. When he went in for a recheck on the eye that had surgery, ulcers were found on the other eye so he just had to have another emergency surgery on the other eye. One surgery was $2200 and the other was $1800. He may have to have a 3rd expensive surgery with a specialist to reroute some saliva glands into his eyes. That surgery only has a 50 percent success rate though, so he still may end up blind in spite of all our work to save his eyes. Hitch's eyes were OK when he began racing and his last race was August 8th this is an auto immune condition that just appeared suddenly. He has been waiting for a group to take him since then. He started on antibiotic treatment, lubricating drops and eye flushes while he was at the track. He raced 30 races and only managed to win one of his races. He is a smaller guy that raced at 66lbs. Hitch turns 3 on April 23rd. His sire is P's Gibbs and is dam is Kiowa Super Cin. He has been quiet in his crate, and seems to be very comfortable there, because he can just relax with his eyes closed. His eyes do cause him a lot of pain and he paws at them a lot so after his surgeries he has had to wear a cone to protect them. Hitch is an exceptionally sweet guy that has a wonderful personality in spite of all the trouble he is having with his eyes and the pain he has been in. He lets us put drops in his eyes and seems to know that we are trying to help him. He has been very cooperative with the vets and staff during his surgeries. He is a very calm guy and doesn't play or run around much. He did start playing with a toy when the vet deadened his eyes for his first checkup so we think he may be more playful when he is not in pain. Hitch passed his cat and small dog tests easily so should be able to live with either. We are doing everything we can to save this sweet boy's eyes. If you would like to help with Hitch's medical expenses we are holding an online Facebook auction that ends Feb 25 at midnight click here.  You can also donate toward his care on our donation page.

Paulie Walnuts
Pet/Kennel Name:
Paulie
Age:
2.5
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:

Fostered by (location):
McManis Easley SC
Adoption Status: Available For Adoption

Paulie Walnuts initially came in from the Palm Beach Race Track. He just didn't do well in his race training so never actually had an official race. He is a young guy that won't turn 3 until April 2nd. He doesn't have an official racing weight but is a pretty small boy so we would guess him to be about 65lbs. His sire is the very famous Trent Lee and his dam is BM Murphy. Paulie was excellent on leash, quiet in his kennel and seemed very calm for a pup when he first came in at a year and a half old. He has been in an adoptive home for over a year now. Paulie's family had a baby and don't have time for Paulie anymore, so are sending him back to be rehomed. He passed his cat test and his small dog test easily. He sniffed both but never got excited or acted like he even thought about chasing them. Paulie potties on leash so may be OK for a home without a fenced yard. Very very sweet guy! This is a precious little boy with the sweetest most gentle eyes and personality to match. He is already home acclimated and adjusted to home life too!
