Bell has been a brood mama for years now so she knows house life. I think she just needs a home to grow old in and am so glad I can give it to her
Oh, that's great. A brood mama down here would only know kennel life. Racers and former racers here never see the inside of a house until they are adopted--if they are that lucky. My brother's dog went from being a racer to being a vet school lab experiment dog, so his traumas were compounded.
I was going to say the same thing. She's lucky if she got to live in a home while being a brood bitch. That will make things alot easier if she's used to living indoors, has seen steps and glass doors and whatnot.
I also agree with the keeping her warm. Living in MN, you'll need to go doggie clothes shopping, b/c when taking her outside, she'll need some kind of protection from the wind and cold.
I also might add that she may have a very high prey drive, although you probably already know that. Former track racers, depending on how good they were, can have extrememly high prey drives, so if you have alot of cats, squirrels and rabbits in your neighborhood, watch out. I know some retired racers that do great with cats and other small critters, but just be prepared.
Other than that, enjoy your new addition to the family. I love greyhounds, and they wre my second choice behind great danes when I was looking at dogs. I still want to get one someday. Their temperments are so great. Be sure to post pics when you get her.
