Registered name: --Atascocita Fang- Call name: --Fang-- Whelp Date: --November 24, 2002-- Color: --black-- Fang is a son of Grey's Statesman, who is a very famous greyhound and also the sire of Talentenmrripley (a member of the Greyhound Hall of Fame). In spite of his excellent breeding,however, Fang wasn't very fast compared with other greyhounds. He competed in 23 races before his first (and only) win. Fang is an average size male greyhound at approximately 75 lbs. After he retired from racing, Fang was chosen for the Second Chance at Life Greyhound Prison Program (SCAL). He has just completed his training at a correctional facility in Indiana where his inmate handlers taught him how to be a great pet. He is proficient in the following commands: heel, sit, down, stay, come on recall,. He can go up and down stairs with ease, walks quietly by your side while on a leash, and is house trained. We really feel that when you adopt an SCAL graduate, you will be adopting the Best of the Best in retired racers. For more information on this unique and successful program, please click on our website under 'Second Chance at Life'. Fang's inmate handlers describe him as a very happy greyhound who loves everyone. They say he is affectionate, playful, loyal, and loves his squeeky toys and stuffies. They even taught Fang to 'shake hands'. Fang is cat friendly and does well with other dogs. He has a lot of personality and should be an excellent choice for a family who would enjoy his sweet and playful nature. Fang is a 1/2 brother to Atascocita Bambi, who is currently in training at the SCAL program in Michigan. She will be available for adoption in June. Fang's $350 adoption fee includes his SCAL training, transportation to and from his training facility in Indiana, neuter, teeth cleaning, all vaccines, microchip, special SCAL collar, leash, SCAL jacket, training DVD, and his own travel bag with toys and grooming kit.
