  1. Greyhound for someone with dog allergies

    New Additions
    Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting a dog in the next few weeks. My boyfriend's allergies can flare up around certain dogs, my mum's English pointer for example. He's fine around his mum's cockerpoos as poodles are known to be a hypoallergenic breed. I'm aware that no breed is truly...
  2. Is a greyhound right for me?

    So I'm 16 and I left school awhile ago because of severe depression and anxiety. I find it hard to get out of bed and I want a buddy that will give me company by being around me and come up to me with a small tail wag looking for attention but not all of the time. A doggo that needs 2 20 min...
  3. What breeds are in my dog?

    We've had Missy for about 9 years and always wondered as to her breed make-up. She's very beautiful and has an exotic-ness to her face. It's not a big deal what's in her mix, and we'll probably never know for sure unless we do a DNA test. It's all just kind of a curiosity and I was wondering...
  4. My dog has started to wet the bed - sometimes!

    Dog Health
    Hi Everyone I am the owner of a beautiful ex-racing greyhound who is 8 next month. She has a lovely, loving calm temperament but is very sensitive to bangs, loud noises or any sort of surprise noise. Since my boyfriend and I have had her we have always had to leave the back door open if out...
  5. What breed are my dogs?

    Dog Breeds
    Hi! I recently adopted 2 dogs that were listed as lab mix. They are full grown at 45 pounds. They do not gain weight no matter how much they eat, very skinny, love to run (very fast), muscular, intelligent, kind, etc. My friend owns a greyhound and I've been noticing more and more...

    Hello, I'm Skyefrog and I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I've thought it best to put this post in this section as it's more related than introductions, although I'll say hello over there too, of course! :) I have two dogs - a greyhound and a collie. Both are almost 10 years old...
  7. Passionate about having a dog - can it work?

    General Dog Discussion
    I'm 22 and have loved dogs all my life. We had a labrador since I was 3 who sadly passed away when I was a teenager and my parents never wanted to commit to another pup. Now that I'm older, having my own dog has become a possibility. I'll explain my situation a bit first - I do currently live at...

  9. Please help us move our puppy

    General Dog Discussion
    I am not entirely sure if this sort of posts is allowed here, and if not please let me know and I will delete it. During our stay in Australia, we fostered a greyhound puppy and we fell in love with him. We ended up adopting him. We are moving back to Europe and we're taking our dog with us...
  10. Our dog chews everything

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a 2 year old ex-racing greyhound that we took straight from the kennels, so he's only lived with a family for a few months. He is well behaved, but he can never be left alone because he will chew everything he comes across - a few moments of inattention have already cost us a few phone...

  13. Newly rescued Greyhound obeys everyone but me (his owner), among other things.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My greyhound Archer, who is newly rescued (nearly 2 months at home), started off very mild, house trained, sweet, and a great listener. Now that he's learning more about being a dog and having some amounts of freedom, things have gotten a bit out of hand. I believe a few turning points have...

  15. Greyhound in a Travel Trailer

    General Dog Discussion
    Would a retired racing greyhound be comfortable living with me in a 40' travel trailer (Trailer isn't going to be traveling anywhere) as long as he got lots of exercise in a large fenced yard?
  16. Need help to stop our greyhound attacking smaller dogs

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a 2 year old greyhound, Jasper. He's generally good natured, compliant and eager to please, but he has a problem with small animals - cats, squirrels and small dogs (right up to the size of a Staffie). Usually he will recall well, but when he wants to chase a small animal, he'll do it...
