We met this beautiful dog at the Greyhound Rescue Booth at the annual Whiskers Walk.
The greyhound is a very old breed that was brought to England by traders no later than 900 A.D. Greyhounds were originally hunting dogs, but are now more frequently thought of as racing dogs. In the recent past, greyhound racing dogs were often killed after they retired (usually between the ages of 2 and 6 years old). This practice has decreased greatly, due to the work of Greyhound rescue groups. Greyhounds, are good, gentle dogs who don't shed much as some other breeds.
