After 154 races (that’s a lot!), Jerome (racing name BigBadJerome) is ready for retirement! He’s a sweet, happy boy who loves attention. You just need to look in his general direction and his helicopter tail starts going. Although he will happily spend time on his bed, he does like to keep on eye on his human to make sure he doesn’t need to be a part of something important. He walks politely on a leash and loves to go on hikes. His favorite thing to do in the house is play with STUFFIES. As soon as he get’s out of his crate, he runs to his stuffies and tosses them around. Jerome is faithfully waiting for his forever home.
MEDICAL UPDATE – When Jerome was examined for an intestinal infection, a small partial blood clot was discovered in his abdomen. He has had several ultra-sounds which show the clot has reduced by 40% with no further reduction. The Vet has concluded the blood clot is most likely an old racing injury or something Jerome has had his entire life. The Vet does not feel the clot needs further monitoring and has stopped medication related to the issue. Jerome also has some instability with his left shoulder. An ultrasound of both shoulders by an Orthopedic Vet has concluded Jerome has some chronic injuries related to his very active racing career. Jerome will be receiving physical therapy to strengthen the shoulders and probably require anti-inflammatory medication. Despite these medical issues, Jerome is a happy boy – eating and relieving well, enjoying his daily walks, playing with his stuffies, affectionate, playful and overall a great boy!
