A Greyhound might be the perfect dog for you.
If you are adopting a dog consider a greyound or a lurcher. These breeds often take longer to find new homes as many people think of these breeds as high maintenance and driven athletes requiring a huge amount of exercise and not as family pets. Both greyhounds and lurchers can make perfect pets.
Contrary to popular opinion, these gorgeous dogs don’t need a lot of exercise and could be considered professional couch potatoes! Tending to be a little on the lazy side they love returning home after a run around the park for a snooze or to relax on a comfy sofa!
Each dog is completely different with their own individual personality. When looking at adopting a pet each individual pet’s personality and background must be considered. Generally speaking, both greyhounds and lurchers have a friendly temperament and are affectionate and gentle with people. This makes them wonderful family dogs and great companions.
There are many different types of dogs looking for good homes in your local rescue center. If you are thinking of adopting a dog please do take the time and consider adopting a greyhound or lurcher!
