Pete, aka Bomb Code, is a 3½-year-old red brindle male, born July 21, 1999. Pete's racing career started in June 2001 and ended at the end of February 2003 at the Valley track with a fracture of the intertarsal joint in his rear right leg along with a suspensory ligament tear. Dr. Mike Herron cross pinned and cast his leg, and he is recuperating in his foster home. It will be weeks before his leg is healed, and his tail also has had to be amputated twice, to get to healthy tissue from an ulceration on the tip. Pete has been a perfect gentleman in his foster home, and you would have thought he has been there for years. He is extremely smart and figured out the dog door in record time. His medical bills so far total approximately $1450.

has been taken off, but there is quite a bit of swelling still on the
inside of his leg. His foster mom is keeping a close eye on this busy,
busy boy...she says there is never a dull moment around him...you can
almost see him thinking and thinking!
Pete has been in a rehabilitation foster home in Austin. His foster mom, Sadie, and Dr. Ron Streid, GALT's veterinarian in Austin, report that Pete is ready to make the transfer to Dallas and look actively for his forever home. His leg has healed very well.
