Greys are most cetainly a delightful breed and make such lovely companions, family pets.
Coming from the other end of the scale is very difficult for many rescue orgs and individuals who work with particular breeds.
It is particularly tough in regard to over represented breeds in pounds and shelters. Greys are cetainly over represented in many pounds and shelters...and they ARE the lucky ones, at the very least they are offered a humane, yet sensless death.
A local shop keeper here is a Greyhound Trainer. He recently told me "the only good Grey is a Grey that wins" while he laughed.
Greyhound trainers surrender dogs often. They point the finger at the owners, and state they have no choice.
If they feel so terrible perhaps it is time they did some soul searching re their proffesion?
I agree with what has been said above.
True, If we could wave a magic wand and eliminate the profit associated i have no doubt the industry would fall away.
Puppy farmers, BYB and petshops.....same.
Hopefully there will be positive change and a growing sense of awareness regarding the issues and the plight ot the beautiful Greys.
