Looks so like the greyhounds I used to have, Sam and Sheba. And like Salem, both started out nervous but became the core of my life. Still miss them 25 years later.

My mother adopts Grey hounds. The sad part is they never live very long because of injuries they suffer from racing. I believe she has adopted 5 dogs so far.

Greyhounds are amazing pets. We've had them for 20 years. We had one that never did learn to deal with linoleum floors. He had to cross one to get outside. He would turn around and back across it. They are so gentle and sweet. Funny too.

That's a ruff life being passed around like that. You grow to love your way of life and it gets ripped away from no choice of your own. We need to stop using animals for entertainment and selfish needs.

Surprisingly they are great dogs for apt people. A run at the dog park once or twice a week is good. The rest of the time they are couch potatoes. Once they leave the track behind they love bed time, nap time and couch time. Every thing is new to them due to the way race dogs are raised. They know nothing about household sounds, stairs, toys, floor textures etc. They also should never be taken off lead unless you want to spend a hour chasing them while they chase a squirrel or a blowing piece of paper.

Some years back, I adopted a pair of retired racing greyhounds. It took them about a month to eventually learn to just be pet dogs. For at a least a week, they would stand nervously like statues, didn't know how to react around visitors (really didn't react at all), and I never heard them make a sound. Then gradually, their personalities started to come out, and they'd wag their tails and greet visitors like normal doggies, play with their toys, bark normally, get the zoomies sometimes, and most of all, cuddle like crazy. Greyhounds are skinny, but big (big rib cages, long legs), and one of the pair was unusually tall, even for a greyhound. They are truly gentle giants. So it's a good thing we had a big couch in the living room and a big bed in the bedroom!

I have a family friend that adopts retired greyhounds. Their latest was a world renowned champion, but he shattered his back hind leg at his final championship race. He was given up, and he’s the biggest greyhound I’ve ever seen. He’s so sweet, and is still trying to figure out the couch.

I have adopted 6 greyhounds over the years. When they finish racing or if they don't come up to scratch many are destroyed or used for breeding. They spend their lives in kennels, never experiencing a ''home''life. They are amazing dogs and do not need miles of walking and exercise as some people think. They are really chilled and loving and loyal. Lost all mine to old age and I know they all had amazing lives while we where together. Still miss them all.

Dog racing shouldn't be a thing. Greyhound racing is cruel. People that say greyhounds are "built for racing", yes they were bred to be fast but doesn't mean they should be raced, especially since the industry exploits them. They treat them more like objects, to achieve maximum efficiency usually involves killing dogs that don't suit their standard, or neglecting the animals, they don't care if the animals get hurt.

I think dog racing needs to be redesigned, sanctioned and marketed completely different. Race breed categories, sponsorship like humans etc. If you don't think a dog and it's owner can't have fun training and racing together as a career or past time then you must own a cat.

My "needle nose" has been gone for the last five years now, but he is a part of my soul (as all my animals are), and was such a big part of my life. I carried him up and down the stairs until one night I heard the little taps of nails across the kitchen floor. When I went in to see what was happening, I spotted him with Oreo cookie crumbs on his face! He had finally learned how to do the stairs himself as he didn't want to be separated from us. Afterwards, he would steal such items like sweet potatoes, and deodorants, socks, etc. and hide them in his bed. He never raced even when they would poke him with a electric rod used to get greyhounds to run. Most of his teeth had to be taken out as they would feed the greyhounds wet/soft dog food. I am glad that this terrible practice is fading away. Tired of men making money off the backs of animals. Anyway, he lived till he was 18 years old. There is nothing better than a Greyhound. P.S. They don't bark much, and they can be lazy. Our greyhound would run around a fenced area a couple of times, and that was that. He died in our arms at home. What a gift and blessing he was.

I tried fostering once and got so attached to the pup I took in I ended up keeping him. At that point I realised that fostering was not for me, unless I wanted a house full of "fosters" I couldn't let go. But this guy did a great job with that lady.

We have a black rescue greyhound, it was retired due to a broken back leg. Lovely dogs, very lazy (more like cats as they sleep most of the day) they dont require long walks. Very timid and gentle for a dog of this size, I would say a great companion to have, especially if you have kids.
