    The first edition of this book was responsible for inspiring tens of thousands of people to adopt ex-racers. Now, this fully updated edition features groundbreaking veterinary information not available anywhere else. Greyhound authority Cynthia Branigan–who has placed over 4,000 Greyhounds through her organization–offers updated statistics on the costs involved with adopting as well as new health information, such as warnings about tick-borne diseases and suggestions on buying veterinary insurance. Branigan carefully explains how to care for a Greyhound–everything from feeding and grooming to training–and how to extend the dog’s life span. Readers will also find a wealth of updated information on medical conditions in Greyhounds and the latest in tests and treatment.

    • Adopting the Racing Greyhound-An Essential!

      I am going to adopt two greyhounds and was hoping to get a good basic book to give me all that I needed to know before bringing them home. This book is definitely it. It covers all that you'll need to know, the caveats, health issues, things unique to this breed and things unique to a life spent in a racing environment. I feel I am ready to bring my new family members home now and I'll be ready to cope with the challenges I'll be sure to face.
