This little Frito is sweet as pie, so I guess that make's him a Frito pie! Frito Frito , aka RW Extra Fast, is a 1˝-year-old red male born August 17, 2011. His sire is Flying Coal City and his dam is Yahoo Omega. Frito has no races on record, instead retiring before he got started due to an injury that left him with three toes on a back foot. But that missing toe isn't going to slow down his search for a forever home!

Frito has passed an initial cat test and is living in a foster home with a cat.



It is my pleasure to tell you about my sweet foster Frito.  By the way, his photos do not do him justice.  He is a beautiful, big Red Fawn.  His lack of one toe does not seem to slow him down.  This boy is loves to go on walks and play with his toys.  When we walk he is social with people we meet along the way as well as other dogs.  He has not decided which side he wants to walk on but we are working on that.  He is cat friendly and small dog friendly.   He also loves to go for car rides.  He will lay down in the back and look out the window or he will just lay down and sleep.  He is a great traveler.  Frito has only been with me a short time but he is just so easy to be with and such a pleasant companion.

Harness Check out the new Sure Fit Harness now in the GreytstoreThe Sure-Fit® Harness features 5 points of adjustability to fit most any dog. When your dog tries to run ahead during your walk, the harness places pressure on the breastbone instead of the throat. This makes it easier and safer to control your dog and also prevents choking and gagging.  The Sure-Fit features an easy-on, easy-off design with two quick-snap buckles. For dogs who slip out of traditional collars or who pull on the leash, the Sure-Fit Harness will keep them under control. Size: Large  Color: Black

Over the next few months we will be adding more new items to the store, including other dog breeds and cat items. So check back often because you can look forward to seeing items for the overall Pet Lover coming soon!
