The value of an AKC connection in choosing a Greyhound pup is way overstated. The AKC has a great responsibility for the number of dogs with hip displasia and neuological problems because their standard is appearance first and health second, just the opposite of the Greyhound racing
industry.

If one wants a healthy pup, find a breeder in the National Greyhound Assn, or similar group, where pups not suited for racing can be had for little or free. I got two pups that way, one too small to race, the other with a broken leg that healed completely but made the dog unfit for racing. Both were fabulous pups and genetically healthy dogs.

With so many retired racers needing homes, it's difficult to defend breeding pedigree greyhounds.

I enjoyed reading this article but ... with so many thousands of retired racing greyhounds available each and every year I'd prefer to see more written on the benefits and joy of adopting a retired racing greyhound ... they're already trained and make greyt pets ... Let a greyhound race into you heart, adopt one! ... We did and then there were
SEVEN!!!!!!!

I have two ex-racer greyhounds, and they are sweet dogs. My Roxie is a therapy dog, as are several greyhounds I know. The article was interesting, but I would have preferred seeing more about adopting an ex-racer. Their personalites are known, and adoption reduces the number of wonderful animals that are brutely killed each year.

This magazine has a photograph of a greyhound licking at fresh fruit in a bowl on the table. The bowl contains grapes, which are highly toxic to dogs. The accompanying article, discussing healthy foods for dogs, does not mention which fruits and vegetables are toxic for dogs (onions, grapes, raisins, etc.). There even is a recipe for dog treats that suggests substituting raisins for dates in the recipe; you can retitle that one "Poison-your-dog treats." This is a serious failure on the part of the editors who combined a misleading photograph with an article that did not contain sufficient information on the dangers to a dog and threw in a potentially toxic recipe, too. Very bad
move.

After being owned by a retired racing Greyhound named Denver for about a year, I have to say that they may be the most perfect thing on this Earth! You will never find a better.
