I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
The farm guy told us that Tom never raced- Well, this is not true!
He raced right into our hearts!
Come and meet this special boy we welcomed into our group. There is a story behind Tom, as it is with so many of our greys. Saint Ken ( everybody who knows our Ken will agree, he is a greyhound Saint) fell in love with Tom when he first met him on the farm in Live Oak, FL, last winter. When he came back from a "Freedom run" for 9 lucky greyhounds, he asked me whether we could take this young boy in whenever we have room in our group-He, Ken, would love to foster him- I agreed. BUT- as it always is in greyhound rescue, there were always other, needier greyhounds in the last year who had to find shelter first- but finally, on December 23, it was Tom's time. Unknowingly to us, the farm person had brought Tom down to the local track- the plan was that Cary would hold him until we have room. When I told Ken this, he did not like leaving Tom down there, especially since Tom never had left the farm, never raced, never was in a racing enviroment- so Ken went down and picked him up- on Tom's 3rd. birthday! (We cannot imagine a better birthday present)
Tom is a love and sweetheart! He is happy, very affectionate, loves to explore the new life he started on his birthday, loves to lay out in the sunshine in the fenced in yard and have the sun warm his body. He must have a fenced in yard, he just enjoys the outdoors too much to be a leash dog! He discovered stuffies and is now performing some "autopsies" to see why they squeek and what is inside a stuffy's body- We wonder whether he wants to become a CSI? If you feel the cold this winter in Fl, come and adopt him because he will keep you warm, leaning on your legs, being near you and being your shadow. We are so happy that we finally got Tom Boy down here and can find him his perfect home.
