TACO

He loves snuggles, naps, and the feeling of the wind through his ears when he runs.

FREJA

Age: 1
Weight: 9.5lb

TIMO

Age: 2
Weight: 11lb
Type & Colour: Miniature wire-haired, Wild Boer; Male

NORAH

Age: 1
Weight: 14lb
Type & Colour: Brown Dapple Tweenie
Norah eagerly awaits her maiden run as a 2 year old. She is 0/0 so far this year. Norah likes nothing more than a nice roll in the long grass and upping her protein intake by eating worms that she has dug up, just like a robin. When she’s not napping, in preparation for this derby, she enjoys chewing everything her mom owns but only if it’s fine leather.

PENNY

Age: 2
Weight: n/a
Type & Colour: Black & tan, long-haired
Penny (Penelope) was a rescue originally from a breeder who we took from a bad situation. She is dumb as nails but so cute and has such a personality. Penny is almost 2 years old and lives with her rescue sister who is a Dachshund/Jack Russell mix and her human 13-month-old brother.
