If you’re thinking about getting a pet, I’m going to put it out there and suggest that you think about adopting a greyhound. They are super smart, affectionate, gentle creatures who are easy to care for.
Pictured above is Jack, who has found his forever home with my friend Karen. He is the sweetest doggy friend I have ever made!
Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) is a registered charity, established by Greyhound Racing New Zealand to find loving homes for retired greyhounds. They have a comprehensive adoption programme to ensure that each dog is match with a home that suits their temperament.
Most greyhounds don’t bark, have a short easy-care coat, and don’t smell. They’re like teenagers – they spend a lot of time sleeping/lying around/leaning against things – but without the surly attitude! Greyhounds are really easy to care for – they just need a daily walk, somewhere soft to sleep, healthy food, and lots of love.
Please head to the
Greyhounds as Pets website to find out more – if you click on the “We Need Homes” tab, you can see some of the gorgeous greyhounds who would love to find their forever home with you.
