Had a few sight hounds. I would recommend a lurcher. I Have settled on Bedlington terrier x whippet as greyhounds are hard to train with such things as recall and calling them off a chase. But that's just me and still love sight hounds in general :)

Mine only barked when she was feeling playful, she’d spin around, do the play bow and bark once. Just let them in the yard to have a run around a burn off some energy, they are so fun to watch run even if it’s short lived, they tire themselves out quick lol.

I grew up with a Lurcher (greyhound collie mix) but she looked like a pure greyhound. She was so lovely, except for her tendency to fall asleep behind closed doors so going from room to room you had to tenderly open the door to see if she was there lol.

I heard that in years past, when Greyhounds were past their prime, in Spain, the custom was to hang them by their necks from low hanging tree branches, until they suffocated and died. Can you believe the cruelty of humans??

Adopted 2 sisters greyhound from Florida. I am in Canada so I was worried about our tough winters but with a good warm coat, tuque (hat) and boots, both are fine with the Canadian cold. However, they would rather stay inside during our torrid summers as they do not tolerate the humid heat. Terribly affectionate and chatty. Very food driven , quite stubborn. They are like cats: they love sleeping all day. Do not like long walks. And my they do shed during the summer. I vacuum every second day! They are kind and calm....except when their meal takes too long to be served! I get an earful. Love them to bits.

Greyhounds are great pets, and all they say in this video is true except one item...They do shed plenty. They could wear out any vacuum cleaner. I know this for sure because I have had 3 and they do shed. Still they are as loving and gentle as you could ever hope for. Also there are the worst watch dog ever. But they are still the perfect couch potato.

Hah, "all they have left to do is become a famly pet". I wish man, most of them are discarded, sometimes cruelly tortured before being killed. The percentage of greyhounds living a happy life after racing or hunting carreers is infinitesimal.

@Ruth Hagenbaugh actually they do like to race but making money our of it is wrong. It being a pass time or an activity for your dog is fine but racing being an industry it's just the worst. Galgos do race although it' nothing like in the UK or what you have. I know about it cause galgo rescue groups mention a dog's past and in a lot of cases it was said they were used for both hunt and racing. I was surprised too but at the same time, they gotta train their dogs for the hunt and races are good for that and to select breeders etc so not so surprising either. As for PETA (dunno the other two), they are scum, as disgusting to me as animal abusers, they're some of the worst humanity has to offer and I hate them. Animal activists in general tend to be pretty nuts but PETA is just... it's a whole other level. Like x1000.

@Camille Dabert Since when does Spain race galgos? I just know they use them for hunting along with lurchers and podencos. Yes we still have racing and it's still a big thing here. We are trying to get the amendment to have it banned in FL overturned. It's going to the Supreme Court. It should never have been put in the constitution to begin with but HSUS, Grey2K and PETA paid millions to courts and advertising to get it put on and the people of FL were duped and lied to. We are trying very hard to keep our greyhounds racing. It's what they love to do.

@Ruth Hagenbaugh galgos aren't only hunting, they DO race too. As for activists saying bullshit, I'm the first to despise that believe me. I was talking about england and spain. My bad, I get why my comment was innapropriate. I kiiiiinda forgot that america DID have greyhound racing too. It's just such a small thing there compared to england or spain that I tend to forget. I'm a greyhound lover, and I hate the industry around this breed sooooo fucking much. Planning to adopt my own galgo in the next couple months. Sorry if I forgot america xD

Where are they tortured before being killed? Have you seen it yourself? Activists lie all the time to get donations to feed their pockets. Greyhounds in the USA are NEVER tortured or killed. All retired racing greyhounds get adopted or kept by their owners as pets. Because of less breeding now, there is a shortage of greyhounds to adopt with waiting lists at adoption groups throughout the US and Canada. Sadly though, galgos used for hunting in Spain are killed or left to starve to death. There are rescue groups there trying to save as many as they can to get adopted. But racing greyhounds are not killed.

Help needed! I've always wanted a borzoi (russian wolfhound) but recently i've heard they're very hard to train and overly stubborn. So now I'm considering a greyhound. I'm also a little displeased with greyhounds because i don't like how the fur feels, and if they're much smaller than borzois. I'd prefer a big dog. Can anyone tell me which is better?

China does not use greyhounds for meat. That is a big lie from activists to get money to bring them to other countries. Greyhounds in China are used for breeding, then sent to groups for adoption. Don't believe the lies.

This is misleading!!!!!! Dogs that come from racing have A LOT of trauma. They don’t just slide into normal life style. God. This is setting up people to rescue and then think somethings wrong when their dog won’t leave the corner.

@Samantha Golper How was she traumatized? What did you see? Greyhounds in the USA are not traumatized at the kennels. They get plenty of human interaction all day, every day. They get exercised, rub downs, play time, hugs, kisses and plenty of treats. Your greyhound was just born skittish. Some are. I had a little girl here that was so skittish she would hide from us in the kitchen or run upstairs until she got to know us. She was never traumatized or hurt in any way. It's just the way some greyhounds are. They have nothing to be traumatized about. You are misinformed and jumping to conclusions about the care of your girl before she was retired and adopted, not rescued. I have been fostering and adopting greyhounds for 19 years. I work with adoption groups and kennel owners. I know them personally. How many do you know personally? Just because you adopted a greyhound, it doesn't make you an expert on their care before you adopted her. If you try hard enough, you can probably find her handler who took care of her at the kennel and get her background. And I am not a sir. My name should've given you the hint.

Ruth Hagenbaugh considering I RESCUED A GREYHOUND, I feel as though I am not misinformed. My greyhound is a rescued racing dog, and was INCREDIBLY traumatized from her experiences. Loud noises, other dogs running, even plastic bag flying by, can cause her to cry, shake and go into her corner. It took over a year.. a full YEAR for her to be able to be around another dog without feeling her traumatizing last. You sir, are judgmental and ignorant. It’s ignorant to assume when you rescue that a dog will assimilate to their environment fast. Each individual goes at their own pace.

What the hell are you talking about? Greyhounds settle in to home life very easily because of the love and care they received before they were adopted. They aren't traumatized. They are a little confused with this new life, but they adjust quickly. Some greyhounds are skittish by nature, but once they get to know you, they come out of their shells very quickly. Greyhounds aren't rescued either, they are retired and adopted. You are really misinformed.

At the moment I have a rescued English Setter girl (14), and a rescued Rottie (11) and would not wish them away for a moment, but when a vacancy occurs I will be looking for a Greyhound or, because they are like gold in France, a Galga (Spanish Greyhound, not quite the same).

I used to work at a greyhound track (one of my first jobs) and working there always made me want to adopt a retired greyhound. I have a dog now, she's a doberman shepherd collie mix (a friends sister's dog had an accidental litter) but if I find myself in a place where I can take in a second dog it will definitely be a greyhound!

This video isn’t presenting a clear picture, because it’s leaving out the negatives. A greyhound will spend the first year learning to live in society. This will take patience and consideration on your part. You will need to know the proper way to socialise your dog. Some will take awhile to bond with you and you cannot let them off a leash unless they are in an enclosed area. Some chase and kill cats, some won’t. Generally, not being barkers, they won’t bark to let you when someone comes to the door.

They do bark. And they do shed. Don’t mislead people. I will say that two greyhounds I’ve had and have heard them bark only 3 times in the 10 years I’ve had them.. the one I just adopted, she’s a barker .. it depends on the dog. BUT THEY DO SHED! Just like any other dog.

30 to 40 minutes a day exercise is normal for a dog? A dog needs to be walked for at least 2 hours a day. Or would you be happy to be 23 and a half hours locked up in a house?

Pete French

Do you actually have a greyhound? I'm guessing not. Even breed experts agree they need surprisingly little exercise and 2 x 20 minute walks/runs - although probably the minimum - is quite sufficient for them. A grey will quite happily sleep for most of the day as long as they can be let out for toilet breaks. I accept that many breeds will need more than that - and most greyhound owners in reality probably walk them for longer than this. But its perfectly true that they don't require hours of exercise.

The reason greyhounds are so incredible is because racers care more about health than beauty. My concern is that the Florida ban will eventually lead greyhounds to the show dog corruption that has destroyed so many wonderful breeds( Eng. Bulldog, Fr bulldog, pug, pekingese, German shepherd, Cav, golden retriever, Great Dane off the top of my head)

That's an interesting point, however, although many breeds suffer from bad breeding and show dog standards, there are many breeders who breed for health and temperament in pedigrees. All it takes is one look at a working line of German shepherds vs a show line to probe the difference. Greyhounds will continue as a healthy breed when tracks and racing shut down, theres such a loyal sighthound community who love the breed, they wouldn't let it die out or become deformed by bad breeding.

There is no abuse in greyhound racing. That is a total lie told by ar activists. Greyhounds are the best kept and cared for animals around. Stop believing the lies. Grey2Crazy is lying all the time to get people to donate money for their lavish vacations and salaries and lobbying. They never give a dime towards any greyhound adoptions or care of greyhounds. They never go to any kennels or farms to see the care greyhounds get so they make up lies about their treatment. They can't tell the truth.
