Description of this Book

People who adopt an ex-racer have spared an intelligent, elegant creature from either being destroyed immediately or sold for research-and this book discusses virtually every conceivable situation that a person adopting a Greyhound is likely to encounter. It includes both the proud history of this oldest of all purebred dog families, as well as fascinating stories from people who have decided to adopt.
