What? Why the heck would they want a first time adopter to take TWO dogs. And why a male? Good dog, I love my retired racer, and will probably have more in the future because the puppy has been A LOT of work, but sometimes I wonder about the adoption groups....

NO idea, that's what irked me. I came to them wanting a smaller female... offering a home to a dog who needed one.. and they wouldn't let me? I know they had girls.. apparently their logic was 'boy is easier' since girls can be bitchy? I don't know. I had explained that while I may be a first time potential Grey adopter, I was experienced with dogs in general, particularly sighthounds. I have a friend who used to breed Ridgebacks, which, IMO, are more 'difficult' than a retired Grey.

Unfortunate that I couldn't give a dog a home at the time, but I ended up with two stellar Whippets that both needed homes. Eventually I'll have a Grey.. once my 'credentials' are better.
