King (CTW Keenen Wayan)

  • Date Received:  April 30, 2015

  • History:  King’s owner said he raced at Gulf Greyhound Park, but there are no recorded races on Greyhound Data.  He hurt his leg so it is possible that he did not have a sanctioned race but only ran practice races.  In any event, his leg is healed and King would rather be the King of someone’s couch.  Based on his behavior on his first day with TAGS it appears that King will be a very affectionate boy – he’s a leaner and he loves to have his face rubbed.  He was very curious during his ride all around Central Texas and the metroplex today.   King is a beautiful, large black male out of the Lonesome Cry and Trent Lee line.  He has a little bit of a farm coat but otherwise he is in great shape.  He is one of only two in the litter (both black males). He’s young and has a lot to learn, but hopefully he will be a quick study.
