About

THE BLACK HOUND

THE Black Hound? That would be Mitzi aka Tiko Fancy, retired racing greyhound who retired from this life in 2012 after an amazing 15 years of life. Born on the 4th of July! She was adopted from Greyhound Pets of America, Maryland. We picked her up at an exit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike straight off the dog hauler that was headed to Florida for the winter season. She had been one of the dogs left behind at Shoreline Star racing track in CT, after 4.5 years of running for her life. She was a charming hound, full of personality and joy.
