It is common knowledge that dog racing can be harmful to the hounds who participate, but did you know that…
Most dogs who are considered retired from the sport are only 1 or 1.5 years old.
The word retired is in this case very deceiving, because it brings to mind senior-aged dogs. But in actual fact the greyhounds who are either put up for adoption because they can no longer compete (or worse, who are destroyed) are only babies — young dogs with their entire lives ahead of them.

If you have a greyhound, please feel free to post their photo and introduce them on the Pawsh Facebook page! I would love to see them!
