Artist's Description

My beautiful greyhounds, retired ex-racing dogs who were adopted through a rescue angency. If they were not rehomed, they would have been put down, as both had reached the end of their racing lives. ( At only 3 years old).

This is common practice, and yet you could not find a more gentle,lazy, quiet, loving, loyal breed of dog. Thousands (well, actually a lot more than that) of these dogs are put down each year around the world, simply because they are ‘too old’, not fast enough, or dont have the ‘racing instinct.’ some are not lucky enough to reach 3 years old, 18months is closer to the mark

In some states they are required to wear muzzles, not because they are dangerous but because of old fashioned laws dating back to the early 1900’s when the greyhound racing/gambling industry was begining.

They are the oldest known pure-bred dog in the world, dating back to the days of the Pharoah’s, and were dogs of the nobility. Most dog breeds today are descendants of the greyhound.
