Hi! My name is Nat and we have recently adopted our first Greyhound, Zac. We had planned to adopt two, but recently a little Staffy cross wandered into our lives in desperate need of a home and we just couldn't say no. Indiana the 7 year old Staffy mix has been with us for a month now and Zac came home last week. So far so good!

 

Indi had been rather neglected by her previous person and has some health issues that we are currently working through. She also has a terrible case of separation anxiety and unfortunately the vet deemed it so serious as to require medication. We have also been using behavioural techniques to improve this and it is working wonders so far. Next week she is scheduled for surgery to remove a nasty tumour that is so far benign but there is a significant risk of it turning malignant at any time.

 

Zac is a 7 year old retired racer who came to us through a Greyhound rescue group here in Sydney. We worked with them to find a dog that would suit our lifestyle and get along well with Indi. He is a big, cruisy boy who loves everyone and spends most of his time relaxing on his bed! We don't know much about his former life but suspect that he may have been a successful racer as he made it to the age of 6 before being picked up by the rescue group. He was on death row at a pound.

 

We did a lot of research before deciding to adopt a Greyhound and are really pleased to have this beautiful boy in our lives. Indi is pretty happy about it too!

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
