Meet Sky the greyhound, who had his first walk with me last week. He’s a recently retired ex-racing dog, who now lives with new owners as a family pet.
You might think a greyhound would need a lot of excercise. But you would be wrong. Yes, Sky likes a walk, but no more so than most other dogs. Greyhounds are actually quite calm and like to curl up quietly for a snooze most of the time. Ex-racing dogs have usually been well trained, so will walk to heel no problem at all.
If you’re thinking of getting a dog, you could do a lot worse than adopting a greyhound like Sky.
