Lizzy is sure to race away with your heart. 

She is a 2-year-old retired racing greyhound.

Done with her racing days at Derby Lane, Lizzy and her caregivers at Greyhound Pets of America Tampa Bay are seeking to find her a forever home. 

At 2 years old, Lizzie is a young racing retiree.

Lizzy would make an idea pet for almost anyone. Her caregivers say Lizzie is pet friendly with most animal, making her idea to become the newest member of most households.

She does well with cats and small dogs. Lizzy hasn't spent a lot of time around small children. Due to Lizzy's gentle nature and calm personality, she hasn't demonstrated any behavior to suggest she would not do well in a family with children, her caregiver said. 

It's important to know greyhounds sleep a lot, as much as 16 hours a day. A greyhound typically doesn't require any special treatment.

Lizzy is healthy and ready to be adopted. She has been spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations.
