There are many misconceptions about greyhounds. Some people see them as a dangerous dog but it couldn’t be further from the truth. They are generally placid and sweet by nature, but unfortunately many of them have had a difficult life.
Even though greyhounds are quick, they are generally very relaxed dogs. If you are getting a greyhound it’s probably best if you take a few days off from work to help your greyhound adapt to life in their new home.
Start building a special relationship with your hound early. Like with any dog, the relationship is based on trust, and the more you do with your hound the closer your relationship will be.
