GRV CEO Alan Clayton recently spoke to SEN radio about his experience adopting a greyhound named Zoe.
Mr Clayton adopted Zoe from the Greyhound Adoption Program about six weeks ago.
In the interview, he explains that greyhounds have a lovely temperament, they are docile and devoted to their owner, but when they first come out of racing there are a lot of things they haven’t seen.
For example, they must get used to everyday objects in the home, such as TVs, stairs, mirrors and laminate floors.
“You have to initially be patient with them, but you get a great pay off when you have dogs like these,” Mr Clayton said.
Alan also reminded racing participants to take care on the roads as the days get shorter and wetter, suggesting that the stop and take a break when they need it.
