H from Büdingen Germany.

I've been poking around for a while, but have decided to join in the fun. My family and I have two greys Charlie(5) and Cooper(5), both retired racers from Ireland.

We have had Charlie for a year and Cooper about six months. Charlie was fostered and Cooper came strait from the track. Life with my guys may not always be easy but definitely worth it.

Welcome to GT. We have an adoption group in Ontario that brings dogs over from Ireland. Hopefully more people will adopt them.

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

I can't see a picture, but welcome anyway! Charlie and Cooper are greyt names.

 

Scout's Mom, speaking from a totally unexpert point of view, I think Irish hounds sometimes have relatively stockier builds and a higher proportion of bicolor markings than American racers. Wonder how they compare to Australian greys?

They are considered different here in but as far as I can tell why. Charlie is little stockier more muscled and taller 31" 35 kg. Cooper is more sleek 29" 26 kg. Cooper was better on the track. We adopted them through Ab auf Sofa a really greyt organization here in Germany.

They are considered different here (Irish Greyhounds, Greyhounds), but as far as I can tell no real reason why. Wow kinda mangled that one a bit.

I believe you are correct as far as their builds. Dunno about the bicolor markings.

Herzlich Wilkommen.

Transplanted Dutch here.
Your pups are beautiful, glad to see other European countries are getting more active in adopting greyhounds from Ireland.
My first greyhound Kit was an Irish girl that had the bad luck of being sold to Spain
