You should be proud of the decision to take a greyhound into your life. It is estimated that 25,000 greyhounds are destroyed annually in Australia alone after they are no longer making money on the track. Of these only around 500 are re-homed. YOU have saved a life.
Your greyhound may take a couple of weeks to adjust to family life. All they have ever known is a tin shed with a running pen at the bottom of the paddock.
The greyhound needs an even tempered, gentle but firm loving owner who knows how to consistently communicate the rules of the home. A greyhound who knows his place in his pack and what is expected of him is a happy greyhound.
Greyhound Adoptions W.A. provides ongoing support for you and your greyhound.
Don’t be suprised if this is all your greyhound does all day!
