Hello!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have been reading for a while the forum but thought it would be time to present our little Rocket! He is 4 years soon and we adopted him 2 months ago now.

A retired racer from Ireland, but we live in Sweden so he had a long journey before coming to us. He is a big black dog, has been in the shelter for 8 months before we adopted him. We are in a city but he is not scared at all, he loves sniffing all the new odors around. He loves his walk, the couch but sometimes also just lying on our flour! (?)

He is very sweet and looks for cuddle but also wants to play a lot. He has a lot of energy and his almost 2 hours of walk a day seem to be just enough for him :) We love him very much!

Anyway I thought I'll do a quick presentation before I ask some questions :)

Welcome to Greytalk from yet another handsome black hound, Nate, in South Carolina in the US.  Your Rocket looks so happy and settled with you. :wub:

Welcome to another black houndie lover.  They are little furnaces and mine never got cold even in winter.  Give Rocket some scritches for me! :beatheart

Another welcome from the black hound division! My Wiki and I are in Wisconsin.  

Are there many greyhounds in Sweden?

We see mostly Whippets and Italian greyhounds where we are! There's a lot of sight-hounds adoption websites so there may be more in the countryside! We are in a (small city)!

We only know of one other greyhound nearby us, also adopted from Ireland!
