Greyhound Rescue Information: The Greyhound is a reserved, elegant, intelligent breed. Greyhounds are gentle, sweet companions that can be a joy to own. Greyhounds are excellent choices for adoption as adults; former racers are already crate trained and easy to housebreak, and this dog adapts well to new owners. Greyhounds have a strong chasing instinct and should not typically be trusted with non-canine animals. Greyhounds do well with older, considerate children. They do not like to be teased. A Greyhound can live in an apartment and may even behave lazily indoors, but does need daily exercise. Greyhounds are sensitive to extreme cold and should wear a coat outside in the winter.
Greyhound Trivia: Greyhounds are the fastest dogs in the world. Greyhounds can run over 40 miles per hour. The Greyhound is one of the most ancient dog breeds. Greyhounds are descended from Middle Eastern dogs but have been in England since before 900 A.D. Retired racing Greyhounds are usually put down unless they are adopted!
