Big Boy, Bigger Heart

Told is a two year old black male. He ran 57 races at Derby Lane and Daytona Beach Kennel Clubs. He has decided to take an early retirement and spend his days showing his family and their friends just why everyone needs to adopt a greyhound. He has tested kid, cat and other breed friendly. Told is a big boy and raced at 81 to 83 pounds, but it is his big heart and soulful eyes that will grab you right away. When you first meet him, he is a little reserved and it takes him a little while to warm up to you. Once he knows you, he is your shadow. He is not a big and bold kind of boy, he is more subtle about getting your attention. If you start petting him and rubbing his ears, he will give you an approving lean. He likes being out with the other greyhounds in his playgroup and loves to get into the zoomie run. He doesn't initiate the zoomies or play, but he is a joiner. He has started to play with toys, but he only likes the ones that still squeak. If another greyhound wants his toy, he will simply walk away. He is a love, not a fighter. We believe that given time to settle in and see what pet life is all about, he may make a good therapy greyhound candidate. He likes to go out for walks and he not only walks nicely on a leash, but he also stands perfectly still for his harness. When he comes back from his walk, he knows that he is supposed to get his treat. He will watch you with his sad eyes until he sees the treat in your hand. He takes treats from our hands nicely. Told would make a greyt first greyhound or a wonderful addition to an existing pack.
