Hi everyone, I'm probably saying what all new greyhound owners say - so apologies for that! I've had my lovely big lad Samson for 10 weeks now. He is an ex-racer who was rehomed but unfortunately attacked by the new owner's greyhound, and so came to me for fostering a few days later with a large stitched up gash on his face. Poor chap. Not the best start to his non-racing life. I foster for a local charity (jack Russells, staffs, terriers) and he was foster no.7. A forever home with prospective new owners fell through after several meets (He's 36kgs and pretty big - they decide
Hello! My name is Lae, living in the Saint Paul area of Minnesota! My boyfriend and I adopted Big Mike from GPA Minnesota about a month ago. I just wanted to introduce ourselves and let you know that I already lurked a little and felt a lot more at ease about some of his behavior (especially being suddenly afraid of being outside sometimes) I hope to learn more and maybe connect with some of you in my area 🥰😊
Hello all, New poster here! Also I am about to be a new greyhound dad. So I am adopting a greyhound that I've been told is NOT an ex-racer...I was a bit perplexed as to his history because if he didn't come from the track who is breeding Greyhounds? Again, I don't know very much of him, they said he was a pet but then got to a kill shelter in Kentucky and now is in Indiana and I stumbled upon him... They want me to take him ASAP, and that is this Sunday. He is a senior and will be 9 in January - I don't mean to be weird...but is this too old? I mean will he die in my care within
Hello everyone! Just joined, and just picked out my first greyhound! He will be coming home with me next week, and I want to have EVERYTHING prepared for him. For a little background, this is my first personal dog, but I'm not new to dogs in general. I'm a Becker College Animal Sciences grad, and currently work as a dog groomer. The Greyhound I just picked out is a 4 year old retiree, brindle with white face, and has had 29 teeth extracted and been diagnosed with Pannus. His pet name is Charles and racing name was (I think) Ex Sheriff. I'm open to all advice and suggestions!
