Greyhound    noun

Oxford Dictionary definition:  Slender swift dog used in racing.

Our definition:  Greyhounds are quiet, gentle, and loyal.  They are very loving and enjoy the company of their humans and other dogs.   Jasmine, a beautiful, rescued greyhound puppy who grew up to be a permanent resident at Nuneaton & Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary and an extremely well loved member of their team, is a perfect example of how loving these animals are.   Tragically so many gentle individuals like her are exploited and abused by the greyhound racing industry.

  2. Years ago I frequented dog tracks in Miami. Too many of us know very little about the behind the scene dog racing industry. I do know there are some greyhound adoption agencies and they make good natured pets.

  3. A former neighbor of mine used to save greyhounds that used to be racing dogs. And these were really cute and loveable animals, it’s horrible how they are exploited!
