Ches21, greyhound adoption groups are independent, and each one operates with it's own rules and preferences. Most do a great job of matching the personality of the dog with the prospective adopter and many will let an adopter choose the dog that they pick on their own. If you are really interested in adopting a greyhound, don't be put off by just one group, visit several. You can find a list of nearly all of the adoption groups worldwide here: www.adopt-a-greyhound.org/directory/list.cfm

I love greyhounds they are so beautiful they were my favorite breed of dog until I knew about pittbulls, there is a greyhound rescue near me but the way they work is you can meet any greyhound you want but they don't let you choose your dog they pick the dog out for you that you adopt so say there is a real connection with only one dog you will more than likely not get that dog you will get the one they pick out for you these dogs should have a choice of who they go home with they have already been through so much in their lifes if you think about it alot of greyhounds suffer the same amount of abuse as the pittbulls but it is easier for a greyhound to get rescued and find a home than it is for a pittbull. Let the dog and people choose where to adopt to and who to adopt to not the rescue it's self.
