You got two dogs within two days?!

Well, I don't feel quite so crazy for considering getting another dog within the same year.

Awww...so muscle-y.

Are there any health problems they are inclined to get? I heard maybe arthritis from their running? And some sort of medication sensitivity?

I'd imagine they'd be inclined to bloat as well with that big, deep ribcage?

They do sound like pretty mellow dogs in general... If Nova's energy level stays the same I don't know that a Grey could handle her. She mauls every dog she sees right now... She spent an hour today constantly pestering my trainer's adult Shepherd, despite the CONSTANT reprimands from the dog. Grey's don't seem like they'd be up for that level of play...

Bloat yes but they dont really do anything to cause bloat LOL.
Anesthesia!!! some vets WILL NOT put them under unless its life or death.
Heat Strokes are common. You have to remember they have NOOOO body fat. Arthritis as they are getting older. We have a 7 or 8 year old and he shows no signs of slowing down yet. Cancers are common later in life. There is here a 20 year old female that is still going strong. I have some pics of her coming up. Many live to 12-13 and older.


These are all from our annual poker run for the Big Dogs. I was there around 6 weeks after giving birth to Bev and ended up with 6-7 greyhound leashes and working at once thats how laid back they are. They were not all from the same family either.

We had Scirracco and a 8 week to 3 month old Shepard puppy . They got along great. If Walker was buggin him he would come to one of us and we would let him in a room by himself. THey are very laid back with puppies. I know of a home that had a 10 year old grey and the previously mentioned 6 mth old and they had NO issues. And the 10 year old was a grouch. When he had enough he woudl go hide LOL.

One of our ex fosters


Jennie the 20 year old greyhound


Her ride to the party is in the back LOL
