We adopted Dodge, an ex-racer seven years ago. Dodge has adjusted beautifully to life in a family home. At first every strange sound worried him as it was not an environment he grew up in. Now he is so relaxed it would take a cannon to wake him up. He really is a 60km/h couch potato. He even used to lie in front of the mirror and stare at himself for hours on end, I think he missed seeing other greyhounds as he would have been used to being in large kennels. He now has a bulldog best mate to play with. Dodge is 100% a family member and you couldn't ask for a more gentle and loving pet.
