Adopting Greyhounds

News

A group of people are spreading the word about why Greyhounds are a great dog to adopt.

Greyhound Pet Adoption out of Springfield focuses on rescuing and finding a forever home for these dogs. This breed is a sight hound typically used for game hunting and racing, but these dogs are also known to be a great family pet.

It’s sometimes perceived that these animals will be high maintenance needing a lot of attention and exercise, but that’s not the case. 
Greyhound advocate Don Carey says, “They are great house dogs, great apartment dogs. They are relatively lazy, often described as the fastest couch potato. They need a little exercise, a walk a mile or two everyday.”
