Week of November 10, 2014




He must've been a beautiful baby, cause look at him now! Travis, aka Centex Travis, is a 2-year-old brindle male born November 7, 2012. His sire is Fuzzys Cannon and his dam is Centex Zest. Travis has 14 races on record, all at Gulf Greyhound Park. He started his short career on May 25, 2014 and it ended on August 17, 2014 with a broken right rear hock. Surgery was performed on August 25 by Dr. Bob Radasch of DVSC on Travis to repair his right central tarsal bone grade IV fracture. Two lag screws were implanted to stabilize the bone. Travis will receive weekly bandage changes for the next six weeks at least. He is being kept very quiet in his foster home. Travis has not yet been tested with cats or other small animals.


Travis will melt your heart with his soulful golden brown eyes. Close up you can see he has a faint white blaze on his nose and chin. Travis was a trooper while recovering from a broken leg and was determined to stay comfortable, roaching on his back on each of the dog beds. Wherever you are is where he wants to be. He is not fond of the crate, but he will stay in one calmly if we are gone for long periods of time during the day. At night he must sleep in the same room as his humans. Travis is a vocalist! When we leave, he cries a bit, and when we come home he sings a song of joy and bounces around as soon as he hears the garage door open. We put up a baby gate to make sure he doesn't try to come with us each time we leave. Travis is good with a pack and could possibly have the confidence to be an only dog if given toys to keep him occupied. Travis is very food motivated so we feed him separately and keep him away until the rest have finished their meals. He is still young but he enjoys the sedate lifestyle of an older greyhound - wake up early, go outside, eat, fall asleep, go outside, shake a toy, sleep, go outside, eat, sleep, go outside, go to bed and repeat. Travis is a Velcro boy and will be a faithful and loving companion to his family.
