Thanks! Unfortunately, the chances of me getting a greyhound is slim. My dad won't let me get a greyhound because he says those dogs are specifically bred for running, and having him in a medium sized yard is torture. I don't know right now, I told him I would let him play in Carmel Creek (a school that has a massive field), but he won't listen. He's very stubborn, I don't know what to say.

Whatever. The odds are stacked against me! (my mom is with my dad). Any help? I will look at greyhound sites to see if I can find anything.

but ou have to think about it this way. richie seems like a boy, it may be hard for him to falll in love for the retired greyhound only to realize it only has 4 yrs left to live, i still think he should check out a rescue but for a younger dog, maybe a golden retreiver X or labX are great first dogs

what makes them special? Are they active? I was thinking about an intelligent dog, are mutts smart? How about Terriers, or do they need a lot of attention?

Yeah, I am a 12 year old boy, been wanting a companion because my friends can't hang out with me forever. Dogs seem really fun also, it's like they would do anything for their owner, unlike cats. I own a cat, but she treats me like dirt

That is SUCH a MYTH! First of all, they retire greyhounds pretty early, anyway. Second of all, you're never guaranteed how long ANY dog or pup you get will live.

Speaking of myths, are heard some owners kill, or abondon their greyhounds if they keep on losing races. Is this true?
