Last month I was attending a walk organised by GAP a charity organisation established by Greyhound Racing New Zealand to find pet homes for retired racing greyhounds.
At that time my friend was looking for a dog and he thought that adopting an retired greyhound may become a good idea.
So he invited me to join him early in the morning for a short 1.5 hour walk around Panmure basin in Auckland.
Every year there are greyhounds coming out of racing.
The adoption programme helps them find a new home as a pet providing support and advices to new owners.
You may be surprised but retired greyhounds are a great pets!
They are smart,
and lazy 🙂
Also they adapt to pet life with ease.
Unlike we though these dogs are very calm and quet, and become a family favourite in absolutely no time.
Judge for yourself!
