Dakota (aka Gable Drakkar)'s Story...
I'm Dakota, aka Gable Drakkar, and although I came off the track in January 2012 after a short stay as a racer, my post-racing life has been fraught with problems. It started out well with me hanging out with other greyhounds in my foster home and quickly becoming a great car traveler. Then, although I'm known as an easy-going, very sweet, intelligent boy, my first forever home with a family who had small children turned out to be short-lived. Being a bounce-back, a label I've learned not to like, I landed with a second foster where an incident culminated with me having a large part of my tail amputated. Then I was adopted by a wonderful man who made me happy to be in a new forever home. But my good fortune was not to last. He died suddenly and it was two days before the police and EMTs arrived. I was very frightened and terribly unhappy, but now I'm back with the Greyhounds of the Verde Valley who are taking care of me until I can try again to find my forever home. As you can see from my photos, I'm a handsome fawn with a now-short tail that will never sweep your coffee table! I was just three in April. In spite of all that's happened to me, I'm ready to give you lifelong love and devotion.
