Special Delivery--a Gentle Giant

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all!

I posted in the medical forum a little while ago about adopting a grey with epilepsy. Well, I went to the meet and greet (a 2-hour drive from home!) on Saturday and it's official. Giant will be riding with a member of the greyhound rescue to our home in Orlando for a quick inspection and introduction to our cats...and then he is ours!

Giant was born Flying Big Giant and raced 90+ times at a few tracks. Not 100% on whether or not the epilepsy started during or after his career, but it is well-controlled on meds.

We picked up the biggest crate we could find (48") per his foster's recommendation. He is 80lbs so I'm hoping it works for him!

How exciting!  Congreytulations!  And count me in as another admirer of Giant's eyeliner and dark brows, and that cute white blaze on his muzzle.  

If you want, you could post in the "How Your Dog Ran at the Track" thread in the Everything Else Greyhound forum and a knowledgeable GT member will analyze Giant's running style and racing record.
