Hello:

I've just joined as I do not have a grey but was interested in getting a dog (will be my first dog) and a grey seemed to be the best fit for me. As I'm sure all of you already have greys, I thought before I went ahead and contacted a rescue group I would reaearch all of this out to make sure it was best for me and the dog. I have many questions, but I'm not sure this section is the right place to ask them, possibly the behaviorial section. But anyway thanks I look forward to hearing from all of you.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

here are a couple of sites that may answer some of your questions. Your question is very broad and really difficult to answer without knowing a bit about you and what you are looking for in a dog in general. There are also some threads that may answer some of your questions.

 

This may help

A bit late to this post, but I recently adopted my first dog and it was a grey. Greytest decision? (ugh)

They definitely have quirks, such as needing special anesthesia, above-average teeth care, and poor tolerance of extreme temperatures. They make great companions though! Most are fairly quiet and sleep most of the day. Overall the chillinest dogs and I love my newly adopted greyhound :)

 

Let us know how your search goes. Adoption is always a realistic option for greys.
