What is a Greyhound? One fast motor scooter, that's what! But maybe the best description
of a Greyhound is: The most beautiful, sweetest natured, most gentle, cleanest, quietest,
most dignified, fastest dog alive. The Greyhound is possibly the oldest breed in existance
today, virtually unchanged, dating back four thousand years or more to the time of the
Egyptian Pharaohs. They were the dogs of royalty, not permited to be owned by common
Bringing one into your life will make your heart swell with pride, and will, without a doubt,
change your life forever. From that point, you will realize this is the way nature intended
dogs to be. You'll want to take your Greyhound everywhere, and everywhere you take it,
you'll be stopped by curious people wanting to talk to you about Greyhound adoption (not
that the people are curious, as in strange, but, well, you know what I mean). In no time you
will be recruited into the army of thousands of ex-racing Greyhound owners who are
walking, talking advertisements for Greyhound Adoption.
For the first month or more of owning one (I've never gotten used to it), your mouth will be
constantly dropping open when you witness their incredible speed. They make you realize
just how slow we humans are.
One of the many great things you'll notice immediately is Greyhounds don't have a doggy
odor. Washing your Greyhound is something you will only have to do if it goes outside and
actually gets dirty from playing.
Lazy, quiet and clean. What more could you want? Trust me, three in the house is
amazingly easy to handle.
Open your heart to Greyhounds, and you will never be the same. As you look into their eyes
you will realize they're looking deep into yours. That's when you know this is the right thing
Here at Beechwood Trails Pet Lodge, we will always try to foster one or two greyhounds,
possibly more, that are available for adoption from Second Chance Greyhounds, SEGA
