Grey hounds are bred for racing and it’s a big sport in Florida to watch them racing and chasing a fake rabbit around the track. The dogs are retired from racing at the age of three and need loving homes.
There are people who take in these Grey hounds and give or sell them to loving families.
When I went for a walk in the park by lake Ontario, I met a couple who had a grey hound and they said that he was only three years old. They had gotten him out of town, I can’t remember where, but he was a loving dog and very gentle.
I think it’s great that there are people who will find homes for these retired racers as they still have a lot of life in them at the age of three and can give joy to a deserving owner. I like hearing stories like these with happy endings.
