Caring - Getting to know your dog
Some rescue greyhounds
are very depressed at first and may appear to you to be very uninteresting.
Your dog may just be content to 'plod' along beside you for a walk - and
then just sleep. It is one of the great joys of owning a greyhound to
watch his character develop as he gets to know you and the family - and
to understand that he has a place in the daily routine.
Others are lively
and friendly straight away - and will love to be with you and share in
all that you are doing and everywhere that you go. The greatest danger
for these is the possibility of developing 'separation anxiety'. It is
one of the most important aspects of adopting a greyhound (or any rescue
dog) that you establish from the very first day, that he can be left on
his own for varying periods of time.
