    Sorry for the glitches in some frames. Camera is messed up and being sent to be serviced :(((( BUT ONTO THE VIDEO!!
    This video is all about what its like to adopt and own a greyhound!! Greyhounds are not very commonly thought about as companions when families are looking for a pet and they should be! The greyhound breed could be the perfect family pet!!
    In this video we get into the breed characteristics a little, the adoption process, the pros and cons, and my personal experience with my greyhound adoption. ADOPTING MY GREY IS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I'VE EVER MADE.
    If you have an questions on the breed, want more details than the video provides, wants help finding an adoption agency around you, OR just want to talk to me about my experience more, feel free to email me! I love y'all guys and hope I can Help! And make sure to follow my girl on Instagram!

So basically they have the personality of a cat in a 55-80 lbs dog body? Sounds like the right breed for me.

Please help. I work Monday - Friday. 12 am til 10 am. I’m gone 10 hours for work, and 15 mins there to work , 15, mins back. I live alone in an apartment. Would being gone that long just not work for a greyhound? I can’t seem to find any dog that will be fine being alone that long. That’s not counting when I sleep. Which I guess is better than not being home at all. I just want a dog, who doesn’t require tons of exercise but also is fine being left alone on my 10 hour shifts and 15 mins to work and back commute

I live in London Uk and have 2 ex-racing Greyhounds. The 1st one we got was named Kitty's Secret and we got her from Battersea Dog's home and her photo is used to advertise homing a Greyhound. She is 3 years old and is a blue. Odin we got around 4 months ago and he was winning races but suddenly refused to run. His racing name was Robert's Vision. He is also 3 and is black. Both are amazing dogs but have different personalities, obviously. I love them to pieces. Your other video really made me laugh. Keep posting your videos.

My sister has an Italian Greyhound and a Whippet. I told her she neeeds to get a greyhound to have the whole breed! They are awesome dogs, so loving and sweet! Great with kids and they are also very patient annd can get along with just about any person or pet you may have, even cats. Greyhounds are pretty big so if you want the greyhound temperament but not the size if you are in a small apartment, Italian Greyhounds and Whippets are just as wonderful.

I am looking into adopting a greyhound. Did your dog have separation anxiety when you got her and if so what did you do to work it out? That is my biggest concern at this point.

Vor 2 Monate
TheThirdErnest
TheThirdErnest

Yes she did. I took a few days off so I could gradually leave and come back for longer periods of time and gave her treats when I got back. Would leave for like 30 seconds then a few min then ten then 30 etc etc. there will still be separation anxiety but they understand you will be coming back. I don’t have any destruction or damage from nima freaking out when I left.

I'm REALLY late to the party but I just want to say I appreciate you making this video. I'm planning on getting two dogs when I move out once I'm stable enough. I've been trying to decide what breed, or where to get them from. The greyhound is sounding more and more like the dog for me, and I'm planning on adopting the dogs in the (hopefully) near future!

I grew up with a Lurcher, a greyhound and collie mix. She looked like a chunkier greyhound with slightly longer hair. So sad when she needed to be put down, with age her hips went. It got to the point where she couldn’t stand up anymore, we would come down in the morning and she would be on the floor by the backdoor with her back legs splayed out behind her covered in poop. She just couldn’t lift her back legs up into the standing position. That’s no life for her so we made the decision to put her down, we think she was about 16 years old at the time.

Love the video. Just got our 2nd grey about a year ago after putting down our 15yr old. We have since lost our 16yr old pointer and are looking daily for another grey to adopt. Unfortunately we are in michigan and cannot find anybody who will adopt out of state and michigan litterally has no rescues that we have found. If you know of any organizations that might be able to help it would be greatly appreciated. We lucked out and found our most recent one at a shelter but it came from a kennel in ohio and the dog was 3 years old and had never been out of a kennel. Didnt know what grass was. Scared of everything, not house trained, and huge prey drive. Had be returned numerous times due to difficulties with training. Is a great dog now, although hes one that can NEVER be off lead. Hes never been seperate from other dogs and he would greatly like a sister to share his adventures with. Thanx alot for the video raising awareness of these unbelievable dogs.

I am confused. If they are independent breed and you can leave her for 8 hours or more alone then how come they have separation anxiety? Pls advice

It depends on the individual dog. Racing greyhounds are raised in large groups. They usually only get a small amount of individual attention from the breeders, but they always have other dogs their age to keep them company. Once they start racing, they have their kennel mates to socialize with. Some adjust to being house pets very quickly, while some take much longer to.

The description of the dog looking at you and ignoring you describes one of my-ish dogs (she lives with my parents and is supposed to be my sister's dog). Her head and neck is like a greyhound's, too--thick neck, narrowing head, collar easily slips over. I'm seriously thinking about adopting a greyhound as a ESA, potentially service dog. Everything I've read about the breed seems like what I'm looking for

Yup. Sounds like Dog probably has some sight hound genes. Greyhound. Saluki. Borzoi. Etc. all very similar personalities lol And yes they would make amazing esa’s and service. They aren’t as readily obedient to training as working dogs but that’s the trainers problem not yours lmao

I’ve got a girl named Badger waiting for me when she finishes racing in Florida. I first met her when she was 3 months old... fell in love in an instant. Grandma was down there and visited her, and she said that Badger is a very friendly girl. Apparently I really know how to pick them.

Good review. Greyhound needs a zoomy ( free to run super fast ) that’s what its behaviour is asking, in the bedroom. Let it go in a fenced area only, it’ll get out of his or her system, it will be very happy afterwards. I think our GH looks like an alien creature. Yes, stubborn. Yes, Quiet, fantastic quality.

They can be trained. It's a falsehood that they are hard to train. You're probably not constant and that makes her not take you seriously in any way, shape or form.

Find a dog park with good fencing. When we had one we would take him to a baseball field and just make sure to have each adult block off the entrances on each side and let him run. A few sprints and he was done and happy.

I adopted my first greyhound a few months ago. He is an ex track dog from China. The first 2 weeks did require a bit of training and reinforcing of rules but after that he has been a fantastic member of the household. Considering that until he was adopted he has known nothing except the dog track an the concrete kennel he was kept in he has acclimated to his new life extremely quickly. The day we picked him up we realized he had never experienced grass before. Within 2 days he was walking around the yard like he owned the place. I cannot say enough about a greyhounds ability to just calmly accept any new situation. They are truly gentle giants.

Check out Maritme Greyhound Adoption in Moncton, New Brunswick Canada. I'm getting my first grey on June 15, 2019. I have a 2 year old European Great Dane and trying to find a dog with the same characteristics was pretty hard but then I found out about the Grey hound. Perfect fit.

I have never thought of having a greyhound myself but I see many retired, old people in the park with rescued greyhounds that are discarded once they are no use for racing. TOO MANY unscrupulous racing dog owners that don't care what happens to a dog once its racing career is over! I hope it will be outlawed in UK. Most of the rescue dogs I have seen when walking my pooches are not friendly with unfamiliar dogs or people; I thought being weary and fear-aggression was a characteristic of this breed, but it seems that it's UK breeders or owners that are at fault; it's nice to see that it is not the case. (I still prefer a breed I can let off leash in the park without a fear of losing them.)

I loved your video! I was just about to adopt a dog from the shelter but now realize what I’ve wanted all along is a greyhound. I volunteered at Greyhound rescue in Massachusetts and did adopt a dog from there, Smoky she was elderly and sick and only lived about six months. She was marvelous I was worried about having a greyhound in an apartment but after seeing yours I’m not worried mine is only slightly bigger than yours I’m going to start looking right away. I know two greyhound adoption places in my state, North Carolina I’m gonna check them out. !thank you

I've read that a Greyhound should not be adopted to a home with a cat because of the hound's prey drive.  Looks like your hound will get along with your cat just fine.

Hey. I’m not stalking you, I swear. But I came here hoping I could get your email. But it’s not in the description anymore. And I hope you’re still checking your comments. I do have a question. Didn’t you say Nima had hookworm when you got her? And it was treated? Because the grey that we adopted at the end of January has hookworm. And the vet treated it and it did not go away after the first round. I’m currently treating her for a second round of meds, with the same meds.. But I wanted to ask you what your vet treated Nima with to get rid of them and how long it took and if she had to be treated with multiple rounds. Can you message me through Facebook? I don’t want to leave my email address on here. My profile name is Jac Lynn Marguerite.

I’ve watched this video before. I came back because I think your fur baby is so cute. (And because maybe I have a little crush on you) I currently have two greyhounds. One which I’ve had for seven years, and another one that adopted me this past January. She’s two years old, she wasn’t a track dog because she would always get too distracted to chase the lure. So I have two girls, and I want to get a male. I already have a name picked out for him. ‘Rameses’. Inspired by you naming your baby after an Egyptian queen. I hope you and your greyhound are still doing well.

I have a greyhound, my very first one, actually.He is the best dog I 've ever had!They have a Awsome personality.Thet are really laid back, but do still know how to have fun though.They 'll hang out with you at home, or walk the Appalachian trail with you, if you feel like it. They are very healthy dogs by nature.They don't usually have "big dog" problems like hip dysplasia and all that, do to their svelte physique.Being so athletic and thin, they are very hardy too.They are smart dogs, they will manipulate you , and mine talks a lot.Not so much barking, it's more like grunting and growling( playful) and this is a greyhound thing and does not mean the dog is aggressive.More like a neigh sound a horse makes.They are usually great with other dogs too.Most greys can live with cats in the house.Mine has a high pray drive and still respects the cats I have and does not chase them. They are funny and have a great personality.
