Requirements To Adopt A Greyhound
**Adopters must have a completely fenced yard or dog run. Invisible fences are not acceptable.
**Adopters understand that greyhounds are house dogs and family members. They are not to be kept outside or shut away from the family inside the house.
**Adopters understand that retired racing greyhounds MUST BE KEPT ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES unless in a controlled situation such as their home or a fully fenced area.
**Adopters understand that for the first few weeks, the Greyhound needs to be let out halfway through the day if the family is away from home all day.
**Adopters must understand that it takes three months on average for the dog to be totally settled into its new home and routine, and must be willing to be patient with the dog for this period.
