Sorry took me so long to reply! Yes, Pixie is a retired, or more like rescued racer in her case. She was badly injured before she was old enough to race, but came from a racing kennel. One wrist is fused and she is missing one toe. But being a dog, she never realized she had a disability so it never slowed her down. She is 13 now, and we got her when she was two. I just love her too. Deer are fine, we used to get them all the time until they converted the forrest across the street into a housing development. So this was the first time in a long time.
