Are we really a nation of dog lovers?
I am not talking about your average pooch, I am talking aboutthe most obedient, loyal, loving, and trusting animal I know, the racing greyhound.
This breed of dog is the most discarded of all breeds of dog, especially before, during and after their racing days.
Being an owner for many years and then a trainer of racing greyhoundsI have seen both worlds and have now decided, to give up and just try and look after my 14 greyhounds that are now pets. They are wonderful creatures and all greyhounds deserve better. I am out of work at the moment but I will do everything I can do to give these animals a home. The reason I gave up was because I could not sit around and watch what I call sheer cruelty. I have seen an awful lot of perfectly healthy animals put to sleep basically due to injures, too old for racingor just not fast enough and have outlived there sell by date. The owners and trainers of this small minority are gutless and only one thing rulesthem, money.
These are truly wonderful creatures and a loving home is all they need, sadly thousands of these animals never get that far. Itsaddens me.
For this reason I have written a book on the subject and this will be out mid- August. You can pre order this e-book at.
I hold nothing back and tell all. I am not worried if I upset or offend anyone. The book may shock some people. The governing bodies do a very good job but its not enough. Too many things are hidden from them.
For this reason I hope I can highlight the problem we have and maybe change things around. There are over 10,000 greyhounds registered in the UK everyyear. What happens to the thousands that leave the sport?
