If you are thinking of giving a home to a dog then please consider a greyhound.
There are so many reasons why greyhounds make wonderful pets.
Here are just a few………
- Personality: Gentle, affectionate and non-aggressive. Greyhounds are quiet dogs who love nothing more than a cosy bed to stretch out on and will happily sleep for most of the day. Ex-racers are used to being handled by many different people and are generally gentle and loyal dogs. They make ideal pets for couples, families and retired people.
- Manners: Although they have lived their entire lives in racing kennels, greyhounds adapt very quickly to living in a home. Most greyhounds are house trained within a very short time and will walk quietly on the lead without pulling. Many can live with other dogs some can live happily with other resident pets as well.
- Exercise: The reputation of the greyhound as a ‘40mph couch potato’ is well deserved. They are built for speed and not stamina and therefore do not require lots of exercise. Two 20 minutes walks a day and a quick run around is usually enough for greyhounds.
And there’s more: Greyhounds are clean, even after muddy walks, their short coats do not moult and they do not have a strong doggy odour.
In return for giving a retired greyhound a loving home you will be rewarded with a lifetime of unconditional love and the knowledge that you have given a greyhound a brighter future.
