I have a greyhound called Clover. Although Clover sounds like a female name it is actually a Male dog!! Greyhounds are the dog used to race in Greyhound races and there very fast runners when they getting going.
We adopted our Greyhound only minutes before it was to be put down! My Sister phoned me up in a right state and told me of a dog, which was to be put down at the place she works. We said we were going to adopt it as I don’t believe in killing a dog if its fit enough to live. When we got there we found out that it was going to be killed because the owner could not be bothered to look after it. We decided then and there to adopt the dog!!
When we got our dog home it we had to make some changes. We had already got a Bowl and all the things a dog needs to be happy. My mum came round and decided to help me make it a beanbag for a bed. After about 2 hours of sewing we decided that it was complete but to our dismay the dog did not like.
Greyhounds are very lazy dogs even when they are known for being fast runners. Clover can bearly be bothered to get up if the door bell goes. This is not just a problem with Clover but with all greyhounds. The only reason they normal get up is when visitors come or it is diner time!!
All I can say is that I love Clover very much simply because he is such a mellow dog. We have only had him a few days and we can already take him off the lead for walks. I would definitely recommend Greyhounds as once they have gone past the age of racing the normally don’t get cared after and normally get put down.
WE WILL LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!
