Featured Rescue - Lady the Greyhound

Thought I'd post a sighthound today. There are currently 2233 Greyhounds listed on Greyhounds typically have a short racing career, usually retiring by the age of five years, and since their life expectancy is between 12 to 15 years, there are almost always adult dogs looking for adoption into loving homes.

This is Lady. She was a racing dog in Ohio but has since retired. Here's a short note from her foster home:
"She loves to be petted and to snuggle in for an evening of cuddling. She is very shy and would prefer a quiet home where she can relax and learn to trust again. Once she learns that you are not going to hurt her she is like your shadow and wags her tail when you come in the room hoping you are going to pet her. "

Sorry if you've already seen it

I love greyhounds.
Good luck to Lady!
