Here are seven great reasons why you should adopt a retired racing Greyhound.April is National Greyhound Adoption Month. We thought this would be the ideal time to tell you all the fantastic reasons why you may want to rescue this dog breed. Here are seven great things you need to know about Greyhounds.
Greyhounds Fit Perfectly Into ApartmentsThey may be bigger than a Shih Tzu or Maltese, but make no mistake—Greyhounds are the perfect fit for apartments and condos. Even though they’re known to be speedy, these dogs need less exercise than other breeds, and love to loaf all day long. All they need is a comfy spot on the couch while you’re away at work, and you’ve got one happy dog on your hands! They’re quiet indoors, laid back, and love to lounge around in their favorite comfy spot.
If You’re Active, Greyhounds Can Keep UpYes, they love to be lazy, but they’re also up for an outdoor adventure whenever you are. Whether it’s hiking, walking, jogging, or playing, your Greyhound will keep up with the activity. If you just want to watch them run around at the dog park with their canine friends, let him run about without worry… Greyhounds easily make new friends, thanks to his polite personality.
If you’re Not Active, Greyhounds Are Cool with LoungingYou’re not big on outdoor activity and would rather binge watch Netflix, not to worry—your Greyhound will happily snooze by your side. In fact, many of these dogs would rather be sleeping all day… much like many of us! You’ll get a kick out of some of the positions your Greyhound will pull when sleeping—we’re sure they’d inspire a new yoga position.
