Life after Life
Most adoptable Greyhounds come straight from the track and have never lived a normal life. They are bred in commercial facilities, start racing at 18 months old, and stop racing around 3 or 4 years of age. Some are used as breeding dogs and others are sent to adoption groups—the fate of the remaining dogs is unknown.Greyhounds are wonderful family dogs that often have a rough start—the vast majority are bred purely for profit, and many of these dogs don’t know the love of a family. With the racing industry in decline, more greyhounds will be available for adoption than ever before, giving you the chance to give one of these mellow, lovable dogs a forever home. Like all dogs, they are worthy of finding loving forever homes. They make great pets and if breeders do not want to keep former racing dogs they should forfeit them to organisations and families that will bring them into their homes and love them unconditionally.
