Bugle Boy

Update: 6/20/05

Bugle Boy

Bugle Boy, which is his registered name, is a very handsome 3-year-old red brindle male, born May 2, 2002. His sire is Gable Dodge, making his grand-sire Wigwam Wag, and his dam is R's True Love. Bugle Boy is a sibling to Terry and Magic. His racing career started December 7, 2003 at Gulf Greyhound Park in La Marque, TX, moving to Valley Race Park in Harlingen on January 24, 2004 where he was a Grade AA racer. When the track closed for the 2004 season, Bugle Boy started racing May 1 at Multnomah track in Oregon, returning finally to Valley Race Park on November 19, 2004.

Bugle Boy's racing career promptly came to a halt on January 22, 2005, at Valley Race Park when he fell in the first turn. This resulted in a very severe fracture to his left wrist, ending that period of his life. Bugle Boy is under the care of Dr. Marty Tanner, the greyhound injury specialist at Elgin, Texas. Dr. Tanner took a bone graft from Bugle Boy's left shoulder, and fused the wrist. Although this will limit the movement of the wrist, Dr. Tanner expects Bugle Boy's life as a companion pet to be pain free. Bugle Boy is being fostered in Austin in one of GALT's rehabilitation homes. His recovery time is expected to be 10-12 weeks. Bugle Boy is not small animal or cat tolerant.

Dr. Tanner has released Bugle Boy from his care. He is now ready to find his forever home!

Update 5/20/05
Bugle Boy’s cast was extended several more weeks due to slow healing. The cast was taken off last week, and he is closely monitored with his exercise. He is slowly putting weight on the leg, but not on a regular basis. Dr. Tanner expects another 4 weeks of rehabilitation.
