ADOPT OR FOSTER A GREYHOUND
Many people are surprised to discover that greyhounds make wonderful family pets. They’re naturally gentle and loving dogs, who generally don’t require a big backyard or a huge amount of exercise. In fact they make great apartment dogs — they haven’t earned the nickname ’60kph couch potato’ for nothing! Most greyhounds are content with a daily walk and plenty of cuddles. They love to snooze whenever they get the opportunity.
