Everything about Greyhounds the Most Beautiful Dogs on the Planet

Over the years, we have adopted and fostered many retired racing dogs. I hope this site will shed some light on just how wonderful these dogs are as pets. You can read all about me and how I got started with these wonderful companions on the our story page.

We hope this site will expel some of the misconceptions that people have about these hounds. They are not “high maintenance” pets. They require very little grooming and are not too vocal, so you don’t have to worry about your neighbors complaining of a barking dog.

They are the most non-confrontational dogs I have ever met. Many people think that because of the muzzles they wear on the track that they are vicious—not so. The muzzles are put on them because when they are running after prey they will nip a competitor.

I love to share the stories of my companion dogs with people, they have enriched my life and I am grateful for every day I can share with them.

Racing dogs require a different diet once their racing career is over. What to look for in commercial dog food as well as the benefits of good old home cooking, and Raw Diet benefits and pitfalls. We address some of the problems when new foods are introduced in their diet.

Here is a helpful hint for combating diarrhea, just give your hound some cooked sweet potato, it does the trick and I have only met one greyt who did not just love sweet potato. See our greyhound nutrition page.
