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.

This was a required reading for the Greyhound adoption group I'm working with, and had I not done so much research beforehand, this book would have been full of very helpful insights into the Greyhound breed! It's well written, and informative, and really keeps the focus on whether you're adopting for the right reason, as well as what type of dog would best fit your lifestyle.
