  1. Greetings!

    Attention All New Members
    Hello all - I'm Becky from NJ. Daisy is my girl - she's a 5yr old lab / greyhound mix. Full of energy, spunk and lots of silliness. She's a rescue that we adopted 4 years ago and I'm so glad we did. She's helped us recover from a lot of pain & grief over losing our 6yr old yellow lab, Jack...
  2. People who know anything about Greyhounds!? :D Share with meeee!

    General Dog Forum
    I'm getting a Greyhound this coming Monday - so so excited! I'm English but originally lived in Ireland, a country with a lot of Greyhounds, rescues and racers, and though I've never personally owned one before I've met a lot. Let's just say, they are by FAR my favourite breed. Now I live in...
  3. Greyhound chasing smaller animals

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two dogs, not teeny tiny in size or spirit at all but small enough to not be classed as big! I will be taking in a greyhound in a week or so (very excited), and I have read numerous times in my preparation for her that greyhounds very often come with a warning of "they live to chase...
  4. Hello. Love all breeds. Right now, waiting for a Greyhound

    Attention All New Members
    I love all breeds, because I can appreciate the particular need they were bred for. My top of the list faves are: Rottweilers, Dobes, German Shepard. I love their intellect and energy. Oh... and Rhodesian Ridgebacks, partly for sentimental reasons: my neighbors Ridgeback adopted me. They are...

    Hi all - My beloved cat, Onyx, (1/2 Maine Coon & 1/2 Ragdoll) went over to the Rainbow Bridge last year. Onyx was my furbaby through and through. We were inseparable. I brought home a new kitten, full Maine Coon, a few months ago, hoping to find a similar love bug. However, although she is...

  8. First time adopted rescued racer behavior change

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone! I just adopted Effy, a greyhound from a rescue agency two weeks ago. Up until today, she seemed to be well-adjusted: she is very calm, friendly, house-trained quickly, eats and poops well, and walks nicely on a leash (mostly, when she is not trying to chase a rabbit). She has been...
  9. Ideas what my rescue pup is mixed with?

    General Dog Forum
    Hi! I just recently rescued this very handsome greyhound mix I've named Rameses and the rescue said he was a greyhound/whippet mix. But from what I can tell (and I'm obviously no expert) those breeds essentially look the same. He will be one in March and he is already very tall. Not only is he...
  10. DNA Tests: What's your experience? Which is the best?

    General Dog Forum
    Meet Skye, our newest family member. The shelter labeled him as a Boxer - Greyhound mix. I think the Boxer mix is a little easier to agree with than the Greyhound side. The tapered waist, deep chest and gallop says greyhound to me, but I would like more back-up. However, he tends to sniff...
  11. Our new...Greyhound Boxer Mix?

    General Dog Forum
    After much deliberation and countless visits to the Humane Society, pet store adoption drives and county animal shelters, we finally have our buddy Skye almost 2 weeks ago. While I had hope for something with more manly pizzazz, I let my 4-year old daughter name him after a cartoon character she...
  12. Any tips for adopting a retired racer?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    At some point, hopefully within the next 12 months, I'd like to adopt a retired racer. I've read a lot about them and I really like greyhounds and I've read some things about what to expect, since they've never been in home environments, usually, but I'd like to see if anyone on here has any advice.
  13. What is my Pit Bull mixed with?

    General Dog Forum
    We adopted Dessa from the Humane society 11 months ago. At that time she was 2 months old and 10 pounds. We were told that she was a apbt.
