Harry -- Our newest greyhound

Recently, we have had a number of older greyhounds returned to the kennel. Dogs are returned for a variety of reasons – their owner may be sick or have passed away, may be moving and unable or unwilling to take the dog, life circumstances may have changed, or the owner may be unwilling to deal with the issue of having an older dog. Whatever the reason, I am glad that Greyhound Friends is there to provide a safe haven for these dogs.

Often these dogs are bewildered and depressed by their return to a kennel, but we give them extra love and care and try to get them readopted as soon as possible. We also have a network of adopters who specialize in taking older dogs home.

Two weeks ago Harry, nearly ten years old, was returned to the kennel for the second time. His behavior at home had been flawless but his owner decided that she was too busy to care for him. Harry is a tall, beautiful white and red brindle boy whom I well-remembered from his previous time in the kennel. He settled in but was clearly not happy.

Last Monday Harry came home with us. Ky and I decided that he had been through enough and he needed a forever home. Our current pack has been kind and welcoming and Harry has been slowly learning the house routine and his new canine companions.  Although five dogs can be a handful to manage, we are happy to have Harry and to give him the home he deserves for his geriatric years.

If you are thinking of adopting, consider an older dog like Harry. We always have a few at Greyhound Friends. They are easy to adopt as they already know house routines and will reward you with gratitude and love during their remaining years.

Only few of us can understand how important your job is. However it is more than brave and generous to give so much love and care for what we have tamed. One can’t do anything more for these dogs.

That is a big pleasure to realize that there are such people who take care of our little friends. I hope that there is an owner for every dog in the world because the people' attitude to dogs reflects their true personality. I do believe that there are more good people than bad ones.

Thanks a lot for realizing that there are so many good-hearted people who are able to take care not only of themselves but of our little friends as well. It is easy to describe a person according to his attitude to animals that is why I am very glad to read such articles and know that such people exist.

It is a pity that a lot of dogs are returned.People should remember that we become responsible, forever, for what we have tamed. Affection - a great happiness, but also great responsibilities. Being tied to you, completely open in front of you, depends on you, needs you.

I would also like to join and say thank you on behalf of me and my family who are animal activists for doing such a great job! That dog is lucky to happen to be taken care of by such a kind-hearted person. It is highly important to take a good care of people, animals, plants, environment we live in otherwise a total destruction comes on our planet ruining mouse and man.

It's good to realize there are people who take care of older dogs. We must consider our responsibility, not only for our nearest and dearest, but also for home pets who need our attention and love.

I believe that before taking in any animal, you should think twice. Could you bear this responsibility until its last days? Because, to abandon the animal for whatever reason is like to commit treachery toward it.

I think there are a lot of people who would adopt young dogs, it is important to adopt older dogs as well, because they are most likely to stay for a longer time

Greyhounds are adorable, I have one and it doesn't give me any reason to regret. I even found a website with full and detailed information about this breed. Visit it if you want to know how to take care of your pet.

There are many homleness dogs and I think if you tamed an animal you should take care for him from all the time. Your pet should be like your child and needed in extra love.

I love dogs so much. I want to say thank you for such care. All animals must have their fundamentals of good hosts. Landlords are obliged to care for their pets because they are not just a dog, but first of all our friends.
