GREYHOUNDS ARE IDEAL AS PETS

If you’re thinking about a dog for adoption, or looking at dogs for adoption, then consider a greyhound as they have many practical benefits and rewards:

GENTLE TEMPERAMENT
Retired greyhounds are wonderful individuals each has its own unique personality, just as we do. They are gentle, affectionate dogs, many prefer to lounge around the house, others like to be part of a home with more activity but generally they are considered family friendly dogs. They are not known to bark excessively and are quietly curious about the world.
HEALTHY BREED
Greyhounds are renowned for their superior health, particularly amongst large breed dogs. Unlike many other breed, greyhounds have been selectively bred for performance not appearance. Serious health problems associated with large dogs such as hip dysplasia are almost rare amongst greyhounds. Greyhounds live an average 12 to 14 years.
LOW EXERCISE DEMAND
Retired greyhounds are wonderful individuals each has its own unique personality, just as we do. They are gentle, affectionate dogs, many prefer to lounge around the house, others like to be part of a home with more activity but generally they are considered family friendly dogs. They are not known to bark excessively and are quietly curious about the world.
MINIMAL GROOMING
Greyhounds are very low maintenance. They have short coats with very little oil in their skin, which means they have minimal shedding and don’t have the trademark ‘dog smell’. For this reason a bath four to five times a year is more than enough to keep your greyhound clean.
