Who wants a Kissie Kissie? Well doesn't everyone? Meet Kissie! 

Kissie, aka Kiowa Hallo Kiss, is a 5-year-old red fawn female born on September 22, 2008. Kissie's sire is Kiowa Mon Manny and her dam is Kay Quin Quantas. Kissie has 77 races on record at, all in Florida. She started her career on January 22, 2010 and finished on January 21, 2011. After racing, she returned to the breeding farm and whelped a litter of seven puppies on March 1, 2012 with sire Hallo Old Spice. She was a favorite at the breeding farm and is looking forward to finding a family all her own! Kissie should not live with cats.

Kissie is a happy happy girl. So happy that she actually smiles! She is perfectly mannered in the house; we've never crated her. She loves her fuzzy squeaky toys, and doesn't tear them up but plays so much with them that the squeak wears out. She loves walks and knows heel and wait. We are working on stay. Out in public she's never met a stranger and is well mannered. She sleeps through the night and is so happy to see you in the morning she smiles. She would do best in a home with another dog who can "show her the ropes." She looks to her greyhound brother Nate for guidance. She gets along with other large dogs but hasn't been around small dogs yet. She likes kids, but shouldn't live with cats. She squeals with excitement when she hears your car pull into the garage. She is an all around happy girl who is still so very excited about her new world.
