...because a very special greyhound has just arrived to GAP and will be up for adoption soon: Taliesin Blue (or for friends, Blue), an amazing racer who had 136 starts, and earned over $45,000 in stakes.
Blue is a small blue color male -his race weight is only 30kg. Check him out in action at Auckland Cup race:

Another very unusual thing about Blue is that he raced until he turned 6 yrs old - and performed awesome all the way! He run his last race on his sixth birthday, in August this year. He was bred in Australia and then trained by lovely Glennis Farrel in Auckland.

A truly exceptional, special dog - and what a well-earned retirement! I daresay a person who gets to adopt this top athlete will be a lucky one :)

A few more pictures of Blue I picked up from :

Update 13th September:
Beautiful Blue has settled in nicely in the GAP kennels, here he is posing for his photo:
