Re: Adopting a rescue greyhound

A good friend of mine is involved with Greyhound rescue and typically has a houseful of them. I can put you in contact with him if you are interested. He would LOVE to talk "shop" about these wonderful dogs and offer insight. Send me a PM if this is something you would like to pursue.
