Awww, that is just so sweet! My cousin and her husband rescued a greyhound that was too old to race anymore (at 4 years old) and it took them months to even teach the poor girl how to play. She didn't know what to do with a toy, and just huddled in the corner for weeks. Now she is the sweetest dog you would ever meet. They have so much love to give, and this story just warms my heart!
Thank you so much for sharing!!
I had a rescued greyhound for over 9 years. I got her at age 2 after she lost interest in the track. She was one day from being destroyed.
Cleo was the most gentle girl. It took her months to learn to walk on grass, not bolt and choke on her food (never really got over that), or play. She was ALL about the comfort, tho. Loved the couch and lying across a warm lap.
She passed from a stroke in 2003, but I am still filled with lots of nice memories.
