  • If you are thinking about adopting a racing Greyhound or want to better understand the ex-racer you already have, then this is the perfect book for you. Everything you need to know about successfully "homing" an ex-racer can be found here—the only book of its kind on the subject. In no time, you will learn that although these remarkable dogs have been bred to hunt and run at top speed, they are used to being with other dogs and people. It's in their nature to get along with adults and children and, of course, other household pets. In addition to detailing the fascinating history of the Greyhound breed from ancient times to the present, Cynthia A. Branigan addresses such topics as preparing the home; feeding, grooming and training; equipment, medicines and health-care products; and activities & competitions just for ex-racers and their owners. In 1992, when Adopting the Racing Greyhound was first published, 40 agencies in the United States adopted out ex-racers. Now, thanks in no small part to this book, the number of agencies is nearing the 300 mark. The Appendix contains the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all the adoption groups in existence today, so you're sure to find one in your area
