I was walking wiley this morning when i met a lady with two greyhounds , she attually has 4 altogether at the moment living with her , she's a fosterer for them , and i didnt realise that greyhounds are in the same boat as staffies , i never really thought about it tbh , but as soon as i got home a searched it on the net and it appears true , they get dumped, shot at and all sorts of terrible things once there no longer a money maker for there owners( ie racing ) one of the ones this lady had with her has been shot , how can ppl be so cruel

Yes it is sadly true, there are numerous campaigns at Belle Vue racing in Manchester

I used to own an ex racing greyhound many years ago, he was a very big dog but sadly I had to rehome him as I was living in a flat and it was not suitable for him

They have a really bad time here and in Ireland. If they are no longer good for racing they are just considered rubbish.

I fostered a few until I kept one, she was, as they all are such gentle little giants with a kind heart who just want to have a nice cosy bed to sleep in all day.

It is a myth that these dogs need extreme excercise they are content with the basics, but still no one wants them.

I was quite surprised at the excercise levels, my boy was very lazy. In fact, all my Staffies have needed far more excercise than he ever did

The only negative experience I had was that whilst I had him two men knocked on my door and barged into my flat demanding to buy him. I was only 18 at the time so was pretty scared but thankfully a few yells to my upstairs neighbour sorted them out as he came down and cleared them off. No idea what they had planned to do with him

Khyber as he was called did not bat an eyelid throughout the whole incident

Yes i was supprised aswell at the excersize , i have attualy met this lady once before but i had casper my mates staffy with me , and she did remember me as she said i remember you dog sitting a fawn one , and at the time i told her i was dog sitting but was thinking of getting one of my own , and she said joking get a greyhound they only need two half hour walks i think she said ? but then i went on my way so never knew she was a fosterer then

How awfull for you having that happen , theres some right nutters about , fancy barging into to your flat
