‘Mr Fry’ proves that there’s nothing quite like a greyhound to warm your heart on a cold winter’s day.
And if that wasn’t enough to make you smile, according to Arizona Greyhound Rescue, Mr Fry also has a tendency to move his bed to wherever his human carers are! No wonder greyhounds are increasingly being recognised for their very best attributes — loyalty, affection and companionship.
The truth about greyhounds
Greyhounds are sensitive dogs, renowned for their gentle and affectionate natures. Sadly, thousands of ‘retired’ racing dogs and pups considered to be ‘unsuitable’ for racing are killed every year in Australia — disposed of by a gambling industry that regards them as little more than money-making machines. And while the greyhounds may be built for speed and agility — within their centuries-old bloodlines is a predisposition for gentleness, affection and loyalty.
Just like all dogs, greyhounds belong in loving homes. By choosing to adopt or foster a greyhound, you can bring a little sunshine to the life of a dog who really needs it (and as any greyhound rescuer will attest — they’ll bring a lot of sunshine into your life in return!)
