Lou Lou (CTW Lynda Lou)

  • History: Miss Lou Lou has quite the impressive history. Not only is she from a long line of excellent racers and breeding stock (her sire, Trent Lee, has 4,160 offspring; her mother is Okie Lynda,  whose sire was Molotov who has 7,747 offspring), Lou Lou was quite the racer herself. According to Greyhound Data, Lou Lou ran 116 races, all but two of them at Wheeling Downs, where she attained AA grade.  All 10 pups in her litter raced, but she was by far the best. We understand she was very loved and spoiled by the trainer at Wheeling Downs. Lou Lou retired from racing in April, 2015, and returned to the farm for breeding. She had one litter of seven (7)  puppies in March 2016. She is now ready for full couch-potato retirement. Lou Lou is a small shiny black female. (TAGS has had numerous Trent Lee pups – remember his offspring are always black or blue.) We will know more about Lou Lou once she discovers what living in a house is like.

March 15, 2018 update:  Lou Lou has been with us almost a month now. She is so sweet and calm in the house but can zoomie with the best of them outside. She loves to play in the yard with her foster greyhound brother, Murky. They do synchronized zooms ‘round and ‘round the yard. She has a couple of years on him but she looks and acts much younger. It’s hard to believe she is a senior. She loves to be outside and doesn’t mind the rain. She also enjoys rolling in the grass.

She doesn’t pay any attention to our two little dogs, even when our very senior Italian Greyhound gets snippy with her. She loves the cats and they love her, too. She will nuzzle on them any chance she gets. We have a active house with two young sons, and she is not phased at all by the kid antics. We had seven kids over making a ruckus and she took it all in stride.

She also walks well on the leash. She had no food aggression, in fact I have not heard as much as a growl out of her for any reason. She prefers to take her time with her meals and some days she will just snack on her breakfast all day long.

Her coat is plush and shines in the sun. She even has hair on her butt! Lou Lou would make a great addition to a home that already has a greyhound- perhaps one that has recently lost a companion. She knows how to be cool and collected and she knows when to party. You really couldn’t ask for better!

February 14, 2018 update:  Lou Lou had an overnight cat test with five (5) cats, one of which is a youngster that has grown up around Greyhounds.  Lou Lou showed some interest in the cats but was not fixated on them.  She wanted to investigate if they moved or came into her line of sight.  When she woke up the next morning she appeared to have less interest (apparently she figured out what they were) and just hung out with them.  Lou Lou is cat trainable but will need supervision and training to become more tolerant.  Lou Lou has seen a few smaller dogs in the vets’ offices with no reaction.  We will test her around more small dogs at a later time.

January 31, 2018 update: Lou Lou came to TAGS for a life of retirement and to find her loving lifetime home.
