After just 5 races at Wheeling Downs and at not quite 2 years of age, Barrett decided he was ready for the retired life.  He is a striking brindle boy with a white blaze, chest, and socks. He also has a white tip on his tail, which curls into a corkscrew when it’s not busy wagging. Barrett is very sweet and friendly, and he loves ear rubs and leaning in for pets. While he’s definitely a people dog, he has also been getting along well with the resident greyhounds in his foster home and is cat trainable.

Barrett crates wonderfully and is quiet during the day and overnight. The only time he makes a peep is when foster mom leaves the house with the other greyhounds. He will protest about being left behind but settles down quickly, so he should be fine living in a home with shared walls. On walks, Barrett has not been bothered by traffic or other loud noises. He is curious about other dogs of all sizes that he sees outside but is not reactive towards them. He usually walks nicely on a loose leash, but he will occasionally try to dart after a fast-moving rabbit or squirrel, and he’s still learning not to weave back and forth and not to stick his head into bushes with thorns. He’s a smart boy, though, and will catch on quickly – he figured out the “down” command in his crate after just one day in his foster home!

He’ll be available for approved adopter visits starting 01/23/2021.
