I bring my dog Lucy, to the states all of the time. All you need to show the customs is a proof of Rabies shot. You would get that from the vet. You do not need to tell the customs that you are fostering the dog, you just need to show that she has her shot, and that it is valid.

Glad you got him!!
What a beautiful pair they are!!

If you can, try letting the dog run around the yard first, before the walk, (to tire him out) If that's not possible, What I do is every time A dog pulls me. (I dogsit a lot) I turn the complete opposite way and start walking. It's very hard at first, but after a few times they do get it. I keep up encouraging noises and when they figure out to pay more attention to me, instead of the rest of the world, They always get treats. This has worked for me, I think the neighbours must think I'm completely crazy when I'm doing it, but oh well!! ;D

Good Luck!

I'm looking for a second dog. I'm curious with what other breeds do other greyhound owner currently have living with them. For example, I'm looking at an American Bulldog or an American Mastiff as a second dog. What do you have other than a greyhound? :)

Lucy Loves My Bed. Plain and simple.  ;D

PS She could care less if I'm in it or not!! LOL

What a Wonderful photo! The story gives me shivers! Thanks for sharing!

If you travel a lot (and have to leave the dog all alone for extended hours at a time) or are looking for a jogging companion for long trips, then an AM won't be a good fit for your lifestyle. But if you have the space in your yard/ home, aren't the kind of person to go on all-day hikes, and your weekday doesn't force you to leave your dog alone for 7+ hours a day... then I couldn't imagine a better dog than an AM."

"They're super-sized (males routinely grow in excess of 225 lbs), super-smart, super-loyal, and super-healthy (12+ years lifespan is not atypical). Mine was completely housebroken at 10-weeks, never ruined any furniture or shoes with his teething, and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. I couldn't be happier with the breed -- or how helpful & accountable the AM breeders are.

If you have any specific AM questions, please let me know. Good luck!"

I love to walk, Lucy loves it as well. At least a min. of an hour a day. I do not jog, no way!! LOL :D However I do work 8HRS a day, and so does my BF. The dog would not be left "alone" as he would be with Lucy. (It will be male as Lucy is a very dominant female, will not tolerate another female at all)
The size of the dog does not bother me, the larger the better I say! I do expect to take obedience classes and training will be on the top of the list of things to do. I love a smart, loyal dog! Lucy has a long life span as well, so this is good. (12+ yrs) I'm glad that they do not tend to be aggressive as I have no need for that. At the moment it's just the two of us, but I'm sure in the lifetime of my dog(s) I will have childern to worry about as well. This is why I want to research and get all the help I can in regards to the two breeds I have narrowed it down too.

Thanks so much everyone for the greyt answers! ;D Please keep them coming!!

Thanks for the info. My boyfriend and I are leaning towards the Amercian Bulldog. It's hard to find anything bad about them. All the info is greyt! Thanks so much!

In a few months, I'll be moving in a house. As you all know, I already have a Greyhound named Lucy. I would LOVE a second dog. I'm looking at the American Bulldog & the American Mastiff as my choices. Does anybody out there have a opinion on either of these dogs? They will have their own yard, and must be good with childern & cats. I will probally get this future dog as a puppy, so I'm really not worried to much about the cats, as it will grow up with them, but I do want a gentle tempered dog. Thanks in advance!!

With Lucy I feed her Nutra Max. I give her two cups in the morning and two cups at night. I only give her milk bones in between when she's been good for a treat. This is the best schedule for Lucy as I've finally managed to contain the "gas" to a minium, and keep #2 real instead of you know what. Runny! Gross!
