Sherwin just arrived from the Blanchard Kennel at Orange Park. He only had 3 schooling races and finished toward the back of the pack in the first two and pulled up and nearly stopped in the last one. His last race was in January so he may have been rehabbing from an injury in that last race, since he was at the track so long before they made the decision to retire him. Sherwin raced at 75lbs and is young - he won't turn 2 until June 20th. His sire is P's Gibbs and his dam is Zero. He seemed a little timid and overwhelmed when he first arrived but warmed up right away in foster care. After just a day or two he has become a friendly guy that loves attention. He is great with the other greyhounds, male and female in his foster home. He also passed his cat and small dog tests easily. Sherwin can be a little loud in his kennel so may not be a good choice for apartment living. He loves to lay on doggy beds and is slowly learning the wood floors and stairs at his foster home. He has done great with his potty training and hasn't had one accident in the house and seems to have good house manners already.

LNT Mr Freeze
Racing Name:
LNT Mr Freeze
Pet/Kennel Name:
Freeze
Age:
almost 3
Color/Gender:
Red Male
Cat Tolerance:
Testing
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Lundberg (Augusta, GA)
Adoption Status: In Process to the Reaves family of Spartanburg, SC 5.21.19

Freeze just arrived from the Blanchard kennel in Orange Park FL. He raced most recently at their other kennel in Wheeling WV though. He raced 27 races and got up to B level so was pretty good. He took a tumble in his last race back in September of 2018 and never returned to racing after that. Freeze is a pretty calm mellow guy. He's settled in with no housebreaking accidents or counter surfing, and crates quietly as long as he has another dog with him.  When totally alone he does show some distress, so will do better in a home with at least one other dog for company.  Freeze does love to run around outside but only does a few laps in the yard. He passed his small dogs test easily and seemed to like the kids he was introduced to. He has not been cat tested yet. His sire is KC and All and his dam is DK's Leapinlizzy. He will turn 3 on June 20th. Freeze raced at 71lbs.

Kiowa Kaleb
Racing Name:
Kiowa Kaleb
Pet/Kennel Name:
Kaleb
Age:
6
Color/Gender:
Red Brindle Male
Cat Tolerance:
No
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Frymire in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: In Process for the Gibson family, 5.11.19

Kaleb just arrived from the Daytona Beach RaceTrack in Florida. He is a 75lb red brindle male with a black nose that turned 2 on February 9th.  Although his is pretty young he started early and has already raced 70 races at Derby Lane and Daytona Beach. He wasn't great but did win a few and placed a lot. His sire is Dragon Fire and his dam is Flying Cleburne. Cleburne is a girl that one of our volunteers owns and the same volunteer also owns one of Kaleb's brothers from a previous litter so we are very excited to be able to bring Kaleb in as well. Kaleb rode well on the trip up to SC from FL and seems to like to travel. He is a friendly boy that seems pretty calm and well behaved. Kaleb's foster mom says he is very good and is an easy foster that should be perfect for a first time greyhound owner. He did not pass his cat test so won't be able to live in a home with kitties. He was very good with the small white Italian Greyhound he met though so should be fine to live with small dogs. Kaleb seems like he would be fine as an only dog and is quiet in his crate so would probably be a great dog for an apartment.  Update!  Kaleb's family has made the difficult decision to let him find a new placement that perhaps has more time at home to spend with him.  He will be arriving back in foster care very soon.
