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.
