She is a tiny brindle female that raced at just 53lbs. Her sire is Last Outlaw and her dam is WW's Junker. She passed her cat and her small dog tests so she should be fine to live with either.

Bebe came in from the Waverider Kennel at Daytona Beach. She is a 62lb black female that is the daughter to a girl we placed, Wanna Rumble and we also placed her grandmother, Wheelie Cool. Her sire is Pat C Clement. We have been waiting on her to retire for some time now. The owners of her mother are fostering her and plan to adopt her if she fits in well with their family. So Bebe is not available for adoption at this time. Bebe raced 170 races and got up to B level winning some and placed a lot. She turned 4 on July 13th. Bebe has been around children from 5 to 13 in her racing kennel. The kids help their mom care for the dogs and curl up in her kennel with her and take naps when they get tired. Bebe passed her cat and small dog tests easily and is living with a kitten that she is good with. She has settled into foster care well and is very sweet and well behaved. Bebe has a rub mark on her nose from wearing her muzzle.

She retired from the Daytona Beach Race track and also raced at Naples Ft Myers and Palm Beach Tracks. She raced 161 races. Diza turned 5 on March 1st and raced 161 races. She is owned by Atascocita Racing which is how she got the beginning of her name - all their dogs have that same prefix. Diza's sire is the famous Rhythmless and her dam is Atascocita Felda. She passed her cat and small dog tests so should be fine to live with either of them. Diza did fine at her first outing and loved it. She was amazed at all the dog stuff on the shelves at PetSmart too.

Atascocita Cord
Racing Name:
Atascocita Cord
Pet/Kennel Name:
Cord
Age:
4
Color/Gender:
Black Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Frymire in Greenville, SC
Adoption Status: Pending adoption to Misuraca Family of Hendersonville NC 10/11/17

Cord came to us from a Florida farm where he has been living since he retired from racing in March of 2016. He has been waiting over a year and a half for a group to take him. He only raced 36 races in Palm Beach and only actually won 2 of those. Cord turned 4 on June 20th. His sire is the famous Craigie Whistler and his dam is Atascocita Miama, He was owned by Atascocita Racing which is why that is the first part of his name. Cord has a very old break to his back right leg that is long healed and shouldn't cause him any problems as a pet. He can run and play normally but does have a slight barely noticeable limp. Cord travels well and just got in the van and laid down on the trip up. He potties on leash nicely so may do fine without a fenced yard if someone was willing to leash walk him. He is very quiet so may be good for a townhouse or apartment. He seems like a very calm well behaved guy that is calmly friendly. Cord liked the children he met and was fine even with a cat running past him. Cord seems to be exceptionally low prey drive and had no interest in chinchillas he lived with. He did great at a doggy daycare with even the smaller dogs. Cord is very laid back and is perfectly happy laying on his bed watching things going on around him and doesn't need to be the center of attention. After Cord gets comfortable with his family he is playful He does seem like he would do best in a home with other dogs. He is fine for a few hours completely alone, but seems like he gets stressed when there are no other dogs around him and he is left for an 8 hour work day.

Shock And Awe
Racing Name:
Shock And Awe
Pet/Kennel Name:
Shock
Age:
3
Color/Gender:
White with Black Spots Male
Cat Tolerance:
Yes
Small Dog Tolerance:
Yes
Good w/ Children:
Yes
Fostered by (location):
Foster, Pawleys Island
Adoption Status: Pending to the Foster Family

Shock just arrived from the Sanford Orlando Race Track. He only had one official race there though and raced at Derby Lane in FL, Southland in Arkansas, and Bluffs Run in IA before that. He was actually pretty good getting up to B level at the top Race Track, Southland, briefly. Then for some reason he just dropped to the lowest D level even after being moved down to slower less competitive tracks. It looks like he would just give in to the other dogs if they wanted to take the lead. Although he traveled a good bit from track to track he seemed to be pretty stressed by the trip up from Florida. He rides well though and just got in and laid down for another 3 hour trip to Atlanta and didn't seem stressed at all then. He seems like a sensitive guy that is calm and well behaved. He is very quiet in his crate. His trainer says he always kept his crate clean and was a very good with the other dogs, just a very nice guy. Shock passed his cat and small dog tests easily without much interest in either and doesn't even seem interested in chasing birds and squirrels in the yard. His sire is KC And All and his dam is Competing Forces. Shock has settled into foster care quickly and never tried to mark in the house once. He went out to a very busy fair and was totally fine with all the people and noise around him and heeled politely the entire time. He liked the people and kids that came up to him to pet him. His foster mom thinks he would be an excellent therapy dog or service dog candidate because of his calm easy going nature and because he seemed so comfortable in a loud busy environment.
