KEEP YOUR DOGS SAFE DURING SOLAR ECLIPSE
If you are on or near the path of totality, as many in Tennessee and Kentucky are, please take some time before the upcoming weekend to prepare for the safety of your greyhounds and other pets.
Make sure your fences and gates are secure. If you are renting a room, make sure your guests understand that it is very important that they do not let a dog loose. It might also be helpful to make sure you have a supply of medications and food on hand, in case your town is inundated with tourists/traffic and it is difficult to run your normal errands.
Although dogs and cats are not expected to feel the effects as much as wildlife, the eclipse event may cause stress for your greyhound. Play it safe by keeping your dogs indoors during the eclipse. Treat it like a larger than normal Fourth of July celebration with respect to your pets.

You won't often see a greyhound sit. Due to their body structure, it is generally uncomfortable for them.
Greyhounds are generally calm dogs and often make great therapy dogs.
The average weight of a greyhound:
Female: 50-65 pounds
Male: 65-80 pounds
The average age of a retired racing greyhound is between two and five years old. The average lifespan is twelve to fourteen years.

Greyhounds come in a large variety of colors. There is actually no "grey" color; the official color for a grey-ish coat is "blue".
The Jean Marie Webb
Memorial Fund was created in memory of a greyhound adopter
to help us take on the financial burden of helping greyhounds with special needs.
A meet & greet is a wonderful opportunity to learn about retired racing greyhounds. We invite you to stop by and meet these beautiful dogs.
Music City Greyhound Adoption is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding homes for greyhounds who have completed their careers on the track. We strive to place each dog in a loving, forever home. We look forward to helping you find the greyt companion you are seeking.
