Greyhounds are intelligent, gentle, affectionate, and generally terrific dogs. Retired racing greyhounds make wonderful pets. Most get along well with other dogs and can be trained to live peacefully with indoor cats.
When dogs leave the track or kennel, they are placed in foster homes where they begin learning how to function in their new lives as pets. We have fostered many dogs, giving them a loving home and some basic training in household rules. Yes, we get attached, but it's very fulfilling to see our "babies" going off to live with their new families.
There is a large, active group of greyhound friends on the Internet. Check out Butterfly's greyhound links for more information.
