Greyhound Friends has compiled a comprehensive New Adopter’s Guide that every potential adopter should read before bringing their greyhound home. Several articles that we have found particularly useful for helping your greyhound adapt to life as a pet are also linked below. Further down is a list of books and websites many greyhound adopters know and love.
- Smart ID Tag Registration – Set and update your contact information with your greyhound’s microchip record
- The Greyhound Project – Required reading for anyone interested in adopting a greyhound
- Greyhound Gang – A greyt source for anything you might want to know about greyhounds
- Greytalk Forums – Online community of greyhound lovers who share stories, ideas, and pictures of their hounds

Undoubtedly you will get a lot of advice – good and bad – from other greyhound adopters. Read and research as much as you can to prepare yourself. Understand that sometimes you may need to try more than one approach to a problem because every greyhound is an individual.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Our goal is to make sure these dogs never have to be uprooted again. Perhaps the most important thing you can do is contact us if you have questions, no matter how small. We want to help you troubleshoot any problems sooner rather than later.
