Dish, aka Bob's Dish, is a 3½-year-old black female born June 1, 2010. Her sire is Rythmless and her dam is Bob's Diva. Dish has 90 races on record at greyhound-data.com, all at Gulf Greyhound Park. She started her career on March 4, 2012 and her last race was on October 18, 2013. She retired to come to GALT upon sustaining a compound toe fracture on December 11.
Dish is not cat trainable.
Dish sustained a compound fracture of digit #5 of her left rear paw. This toe was amputated on December 20, 2014. Because of daily bandage change requirements, Dish stayed at VCA Preston Park Animal Hospital under the care of Dr. Christy Soileau for the next 10 days. During this time her liver enzymes elevated sharply, most likely due to an adverse reaction to anti inflammatory medication. She is responding positively to medication for this condition, and her liver values are descending now. She is getting bandage changes every two days for her foot, which is healing as expected.
Dish's foot is healed and her liver values are back to normal! This sweet girl is ready to find her forever home!
Dish is a very sweet girl who loves to play with stuffies in the back yard and also inside. She has never had an accident in the house and will come and get me to let me know she wants out. She enjoys sleeping by herself in my den area at night. She likes her own sleeping space. I put her in an x-pen to feed her only because she is a bit of a vacuum cleaner and would readily eat out of everyone else's bowl if I did not control her food intake. She is very food motivated! She likes belly rubs and sleeps well through the night. She will eagerly give you kisses and is very friendly. I do not crate her when I am gone, as she has never chewed on anything that she is not supposed to. She knows where the doggie toy box is located and usually by the end of the day all of the toys are scattered throughout the house.
She gets along well with my other greyhounds, which usually number anywhere from 5 to 8 depending on the number of foster sisters and brothers she has. She was on injured reserve recovering from a toe amputation from a racing injury, but she is totally healed and you would never know that she is missing a toe. Please consider giving this sweet girl a forever home! She will be glad to give you added affection and an abundant supply of kisses!Dish's Foster Mom
