Chubby much? This is Chubby! Chubby, aka Gable Chubby, is a 3-year-old brindle male born on July 29, 2010. Chubby's sire is Gable Sour Cream and his dam is Tipp Renee. Chubby has 35 races on record at Greyhound-data.com, all at Gulf Greyhound Park from December 2012 to November 2013. Being a greyhound, Chubby is of course, anything but chubby!

 

Chubby not yet been tested with cats or other small animals.


Chubby is very playful and likes squeaky toys. He is very correctable and is making great strides in learning his house manners. He loves to be with you wherever you are in the house. He loves walks and is excellent on a leash - no pulling at all. He goes outside to use the bathroom, but wants to come right back in instead of lounging in the sun. He is a champion at sleeping on his back and loves to eat.

This event is limited to no more than 40 greyhounds, so get your spot reserved NOW! This is a wonderful opportunity to allow your muzzled greyhound to run free on TWO acres of fenced-in countryside! You are responsible for bringing a muzzle for your greyhound, as well as picking up after them and monitoring their behavior at the event. There will be home baked treats for your greyhound!
