Ex-racing Greyhounds are accustomed to life in kennels and settle in easily to the Rehoming Centre routine. This fact alone proves you do not need hours of spare time and acres of land in which to exercise them. They are quite content with just two or three short walks a day. A quick sprint in a safe enclosed area is a bonus.
Greyhounds are in general, docile, gentle and patient creatures. They are hugely appreciative of human affection, probably because of their isolated upbringing. Most of them are extremely tolerant and good with children.
They eat the same amount and type of food as other dogs of their size and require no special veterinary attention. However, their thin skin can be more likely to tear than other breeds if caught during fast running and the occasional stitch may be required – especially if your new Greyhound hasn’t learnt how to turn corners at full speed yet!
