Bullet is a 9 year old retired racing Greyhound. A broken leg at age
three gave him the opportunity to retire early. He went on to do
some modeling and then became a therapy dog to fill his spare time
In early 2008 Bullet decided to go back to work and joined the
Beach County Sheriff’s Office as one of the Greyhounds used in the
Animal Kindness Program.
Bullet appears in schools, camps, and other locations where children
congregate and at community locations and events where he visits
with adults and children alike.
He has been featured in Boca Dog Magazine, Around Wellington, the
PBSO Star and twice appeared in Celebrating Greyhounds national
magazine - among others. Bullet modeled on the runway for a number
of years at the Greyhound Pets of America Luncheon and Fashion Show
at the Harriet Theater in CityPlace. Bullet also has two of his
photos in a book called Diva Dogs – one in his clown suit and
another in his winter bomber jacket as he waits for the greyhound
bus. Eat your heart out Tom Cruise!!!
Bullet appeared in the Ballet Florida production of A Midsummer
Night’s Dream at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach and was
selected to appear in the G-Star Motion Pictures Production of
Destiny and the Bulldozers but he did not go to the filming as they
scheduled it in the heat of the summer months here in S FL. His
on-stage photos as a “bowerina” can be seen at
greyhoundpetsfl.org under the photo section.
Bullet represented the canine division in the local Arthritis Walk
in 2009 as the Dog Honoree and he has been selected to be Grand
Marshall of the annual Peggy Adams Shelter Walk for the Animals in
February of 2011.

Bullet “volunteered” twice to help save other canines by being a
blood donor a few years ago. In July 2010 he was diagnosed with a
very rare form of cancer, extraskeletal soft tissue osteosarcoma.
Bullet then underwent two surgeries and five chemotherapy treatments
and is (hopefully) cancer free at this time. His doctor has
not even put him on maintenance drugs as he feels “we got it all”
and I am praying he is right.
Bullet is receiving Get Well cards from all over the world for his
recent bout with cancer. He is collecting them in order to schedule
a media event to raise awareness of canine cancer. Anyone wishing to
send a card may mail it to Bullet Masi – Special Events / Animal
Kindness Unit – Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office - 3228 Gun Club
