Why did you decide to buy a greyhound? Are you happy with your choice? I will only be reading and rating replys, thank you.

I have my sister's dog living with me, actually two dogs. One is a dalmation, the other, apparantly is part whippet, and has a body build similar to a greyhound, and you cannot tire her out for anything. She looks like she could run in mid air. I answered that discussion as well.

Thanks sugar.As an artist, I am very familiar with all the breeds, and I cut so many out. www.mgcreativearts.com is my website, if you want to see my silhouette cuttings freehand with only a pair of scissors. I have a short video on there as well, to see how I do a cutting.

I do not own a greyhound, but I have thought that I might like to adopt a retired one. Maybe not, as I am not a dog person exactly. They just look so elegant. We have a greyhound rescue organization about an hour from McPherson, in Abilene, Ks. We have greyhound racing in Wichita.

Greyhounds are awesome pets. Most people love them very much, and they need love and affection after years of being a slave to humans for money.

I currently have one rescue greyhound (other 2 dogs are a rescue lurcher and a deerhound) but he's the second we've had. the first was an ex-racer and the current one was injured badly as a puppy. I hope never to be without a greyhound. they are good natured dogs. very soppy, love cuddles. they need very little grooming, but they do love to be brushed. if they go out and get muddy, the mud dries quickly and is easily wiped away with a towel. they don't take up very much space in the house as they do curl up into surprisingly small spaces. they don't need nearly as much excercise as people expect. if there is somewhere enclosed for them to run then they can wear themselves out with a good sprint, or a 30 minute walk on the lead is fine. they are a healthy breed, bred only to be fast and have stamina, so bred purely to be healthy, rather than to look a certain way. so their hip score and eye score is excellent. they are not prone to congenital defects. so all in all, yes, give a greyhound a home. they are lovely, kind, gentle, quiet, and wonderful dogs.
