Racing Name: Atascocita Buzz Call Name: Buzz Whelp Date: July 10, 2002 PRISON DOG As you can see from his photos, Buzz is one handsome fellow, and you just have to love those floppy ears! One goes forward and one goes back. Buzz raced in 117 races in Naples, Hollywood, and Miami, Florida prior to becoming a part of the Second Chance at Life (SCAL) prison program. Buzz graduated from the SCAL training program at a correctional facility in Indiana. Buzz has loads of personality and loves people. He likes to 'shake hands'with you and if you get down on the floor with you, he will put out his paw to hold you there. He already has excellent house manners, and is a dog that will make you laugh with his silly antics. He is very well trained and obedient, and is a dog you can feel comfortable taking anywhere. Buzz has lived in a home and is already home acclimated. Through his training at the SCAL program, Buzz is proficient in the following commands: heal, sit, stay, down, come on recall . He also has an obedience certification. Buzz is gentle and quiet. He has a favorite toy which is a white teddy bear. He walks quietly on a leash, likes to go for car rides, and go for his daily walks. Buzz is one greyhound who would do well as an only dog. He shows some interest in chasing cats, so we recommend him for a non-cat home. Just about the only quirk Buzz has is that he tends to have 'sleep startle', which means he needs to be left alone while he is sleeping. For this reason, we feel he would do best in a home with older children (teenagers) or in an adult only home. We really feel that when you adopt an SCAL trained greyhound, you will be adopting the Best of the Best in retired racers. For more information on the SCAL prison program, please check out our website under 'Second Chance at Life'. Buzz is an average size male greyhound at around 75 lbs. His $350 adoption fee includes his neuter, all vaccines, teeth cleaning, deworming, microchip, SCAL training, a special SCAL collar and leash, SCAL jacket, training DVD, and a travel bag with his toys and grooming kit. Buzz is such a cool dog he will not be available for very long, so please call us right away if you would like to meet Buzz..
