The Docile Greyhound

Hunter is a beautiful dog and is as friendly as his owners. They said that he’s eleven years old, very friendly and enjoys sleeping on the couch  or in his dog bed. If you are thinking of adopting a dog, you may want to consider a Greyhound. Greyhounds do not pull or jump and are very easy to handle. The Greyhound makes  an excellent pet that is calm and gentle while indoors.  Regular exercise and a run or long walk in the park on his dog leash is good for your Greyhound. Unlike some other breeds, the Greyhound is not prone to any diseases and his lifespan in between 10 and 13 years.

According to Pet Md., some of the minor ailments that can affect the breed include osteosarcoma, esophageal achalasia, and gastric torsion. Both the AKC and NGA Greyhounds cannot tolerate barbiturate anesthesia and are susceptible to tail-tip injuries and lacerations, while retired NGA Greyhounds are prone to racing injuries like muscle, toe, and hock injuries.

They have short smooth coats that are easy to care for. Occasional brushing with a good brush will make for sufficient grooming.  So I would recommend that you give a Greyhound a good home, After all, their lives were tough.
