Grip, aka Killer Tightgrip, is a 3 year old red brindle male born April 6, 2013. His sire is Lonesome Cry, and his dam is Slatex Topaz. Grip has 53 races to his credit on Greyhound-Data with his final race ending on April 14, 2016, at Sanford-Orlando track in Florida with a fractured right rear hock. Grip raced also at Bluffs Run in Council Bluffs, IA and Gulf Greyhound Park in LaMarque, Texas before moving to Sanford-Orlando track. Grip is scheduled for surgery with Dr. Bob Radasch at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center.

Grip has passed an initial cat test and is living in a home with cats and small dogs.

UPDATE 5/4/2016

Grip had surgery performed by Dr. Bob Radasch for a grade 4 central tarsal bone fracture of his right hock. An external fixator was placed and x-rays will be taken in approximately 8 weeks to determine the healing process. Grip also has a positive titer to Ehrlichia Canis, and he is receiving daily medication. Grip is being kept very quiet in his foster home during this time.

UPDATE 10/12/2016

After a LONG recovery time for his fracture which involved a bone infection, Grip is finally ready to find his forever home. As with all fractured repairs, any implanted screws or wires may require removal in the future if irritation develops.
