My daughter and her future husband have fostered a greyhound with a view to adopting him. He lived outside in a kennel for six years until he outlived
his usefulness as racing dog and yet he is the gentlest, undemanding thing I've seen for a while. My future s-I-l put on the muzzle and leash then
stood up but continued a conversation with me for a full five+ minutes. The dog didn't even whimper, just sat there patiently waiting for his time
to go to the park.
We have an adopt-a-greyhound program down here. They are very placid animals. Our local old folks home has one and he is a popular "friend".
Seems to be settling in...
That is one very happy dog !
Blake is being adopted on Sunday.
It's good to see that he has found a new home. Obviously, you'll be sad to see him go................
He's being adopted by my daughter and her partner. Sorry for not making that clear. The only place he's going, it seems, is on every seat in the house.
Sorry I missed the original comment. There are folks here who foster animals waiting for adoption. Will they continue to foster greyhounds once Blake is "theirs"?
They would need to move house first I think. The flat has a lovely shared walled garden and there are many nearby parks but within the flat itself one Greyhound is probably enough. He got an adoption present of a bow tie collar.
