Caring - Getting to know your dog

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.
