> 900 Greyhounds will need to be adopted otherwise they will be euthanized, now is a great time to consider adopting a Greyhound. They are very loving and laid back. They don't need the space people think they need. They are great for an active family because they have been crated almost all their lives and they sleep about 18 out of the 24 hours a day. They are just looking for someone to love them and supply them with a warm bed!!!!

I'll pass the word along, I tried adopting a greyhound 5 yrs ago and was not allowed because my yard wasn't fenced...*pouting* I wonder if thats changed? I hope these dogs all find loving homes

Greyhounds get out of an 8 foot fence as well. We have friends who had to go to 10 ft to make sure that when they turned their backs on her she couldn't sail over. They lived somewhat rural so lots of bunny scents.

They do make fantastic house dogs and are such a sad product of gamblers needs.
