Lacy (Swg Freetail)

  • Date Received:  May 4, 2014
  • History:  Lacy is a small female that was born with a bobbed tail.  Although she had no tail to use as a rudder when running, she was trained to race and actually ran 16 races at Gulf Greyhound Park. It was obvious she was not going to be a contender in the racing field although she has a fine pedigree – Gable Dodge line on her sire’s side and Oshkosh Slammer line on her dam’s side.  Lacy and Sandman have the same sire, Lonesome Cry.  All of her litter raced.  She retired back to the farm in 2011.  Lacy had one litter of pups about eight months ago and is now ready for retirement into a home.  We will know more about her personality once she settles into a foster home.

 Lacy and her new dad.  Congrats!

December 6, 2014 update:  Lacy has found her lifetime home.

June 9, 2014 update:  Lacy has settled in so well and is a sweet, easy little snippet of a girl. She gets along famously with our two other greys and has gotten over some of her velcroitis. She no longer has to be right under foot and doesn't whine when we leave because she knows we're coming back. Make no mistake, though, she does keep us in sight and has a few favorite spots to sleep, like in the clothes closet when we're getting dressed. One day she walked behind the hanging clothes and lay down for a quick snooze!! Pretty funny to see just her feet sticking out.

She's excellent on walks staying right beside us, leash relaxed. She loves the walks...but you'll want to keep a good hold on the leash because she is on high alert for that rabbit, squirrel, bird or even other dogs. The picture below shows her before and during a possible sighting of a squirrel!!

She is a dainty eater, plays with but doesn't destroy toys and sleeps on her bed all night. Initially we crated her and she's OK with that, but she has not been destructive at all so now has freedom with our other dogs. And her short stubby tail doesn't give her a moments trouble...kind of handy not to have to worry about getting it caught when closing doors! She is still testing the limits of counter-surfing but we're working real hard on breaking that habit.  

Mostly she just ambles around, smells the flowers and enjoys the life of a retired girl. She's really good in the car during travel. She'll make someone a really great companion.

May 4, 2014 update:  Lacy came to TAGS for a life of retirement and to find her loving lifetime home.
