My Derby, adopted one year and two months ago, has been a joy. I wish more new about the wonders of adopting a retired racing greyhound. They are like no other dogs, and it gives me a sense of pride and satisfaction to know that we have brought into our family, and lovely dog whose future could have been quite dire, had the Southeastern Greyhound Adoption Association not taken him from the greyhound racing track, and set him up for adoption. I wish we all could save every greyhound that raced, or fell short of the tracks expectations, and are set for elimination because they can't make money on a greyhound that doesn't win races. They just don't know what they are missing out on.
