  1. Personally I like 2 better then 3. I've been fostering greyhound for about a year and a half now, so I often have my 2 and a foster at home. I know it might not be a fair comparison as the fosters are always in a transition and not settled into home life yet, but I find it easier with just my 2. Some of the fosters I've been very tempted to keep despite this, lol. I don't find much difference at meal times and for the most part they've all got along fine. The biggest thing for me is walking 3, I know lots of people do it successfully but I find walking 2 is pleasurable, 3 is a chore. I don't have time to do 2 separate walks and untangling leashes is a pain. I also don't have room in my car for 3 dogs which is probably the biggest reason I didn't foster fail with a third. I could buy a bigger car but that's another expense along with more food and vet bills. You could always try fostering to see if 3 dogs would be a good fit for your home.
  2. I completed renamed my first 2 greyhounds. This was before I was aware they actually knew their names. My 3rd dog I had planned to rename as the adoption kennel had her name down as "risk" and that wasn't happening, lol. But when I got her paperwork, hand written on the top was "Corinna". She definitely responded to it and it was clear that is the name she was being called. I liked it and kept it. My 4th greyhound Honey, knew her name very well. I wouldn't personally name a dog Honey but it does suit her perfectly so I didn't really consider changing it. My 5th was called Colt and knew it. I just changed it ever so slightly to Cole. I just think it has a nicer sound to it and he didn't seem to notice the change.
  3. Here is Cole as a 3 year old, with significant white on his face. Not as noticeable as she's a lighter colour Honey was completely white faced as a two year old.
  4. Great news! I lost my first to hemango, and although not confirmed, most likely lost my second greyhound to it too.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Having lost a seemingly healthy greyhound in matter of hours, I know the tremendous pain you must be going through. Hugs. Run free River.
  6. She's 7 and has the kindest disposition. If I could have 3 dogs she wouldn't be leaving, lol.

  9. I think space guarding is a very difficult thing to manage with kids around even in the best of homes.
  10. It could just me a matter of him getting used to kids and will relax in time or maybe not. I do think there are other greyhounds that would be more comfortable around kids to start with though. If I was you I'd want to get a greyhound that is happy around kids to begin with then have positive interaction with your grandchild to reinforce that attitude.
  11. I had greyhounds before I had children and my kids have always lived with a greyhound or two since. I never adopted a new greyhound when my kids were toddlers but the two I had were both very good with the kids. I constantly reminded the kids of the dog rules and always closely watched them around the dogs and never had a single issue. Now the kids are 5 and 8 so past that stage but we've adopted 2 hounds in the last year both of which would be fine with toddlers I'm sure.
  12. Wow, what a misinformed article. I think it rare that a greyhound would think of children as prey. The high energy comment just proves they don't know what they're talking about. Although I see a lot of negative comments on this board about greyhounds and kids, I've personally found most greys are actually quite good with kids. I have owned 4 greyhounds and fostered another 6 since having kids. Of all of those only two would not have been good living with young children. Actually one of those two really liked the kids but was a resource guarder so a home with kids wasn't ideal for him. The rest have ranged from being indifferent towards the kids to absolutely loving them.
  13. I have 2 white cats (17 and 19 years old) and have had 5 greyhounds plus several fosters over the years. I've found cat safe greyhounds are typically fine regardless of the color of cat.
