Hey, I'm not currently looking for a dog as I live in rented accomodation but I'm feeling quite depressed living without a pet dog (I keep visiting doggy relatives and friends!) I feel jealous when I see dog walkers...but anyway to try and deal with my growing dog broodiness I'm planning when I can get a dog, hopefully this time next year as fingers crossed I should be on my way to being a homeowner and have a permenant teaching job (I am currently a trainee teacher). However I wondered if anyone knows if greyhound rescue places will let full time workers adopt? I have never had a greyhound before but my family have owned various breeds cockers, collies, setters. I just think they seem like lovely dogs and as they are quite calm I would be able to train one to be left whilst my partner and myself are working (although my mum and grandparents have offered to pop in at lunchtimes), especially if I got one at the start of the summer holidays I would have two months to focus on training (as I should be a teacher by then so will have school holidays). I enjoy walking dogs and would happily walk it 2-3 times a day and I would like to have a go at dog agility or cani X, even though I know this isn't the most suitable breed for these activities I would just like me and the dog to have a hobby we could do together to strength our bond. I just wanted to know if greyhound rescue places will let full time workers adopt as I know some rescue places have policies on this. I have no cats or children, any experiences or stories on adopting greyhounds or help and information gratefully recieved!
