No Cats

 

Hello! I see that you’re looking for a greyhound. Let me tell you a
little about me! Er…I mean US. When we come off the racetrack,
we haven’t experienced life as a pet before. But that doesn’t
mean we’re wild, or anything. Far from it! We actually love
people. Our trainers were people and we LOVE them. We went
to racing school and learned all about the rules of the track. So
you see, we learn quickly and we love to please. Take me, for
instance. I already know how to walk perfectly on my leash and
I’m looking forward to our walks together. I’m what is known as a
red brindle, and I don’t mind saying that I’m quite lovely to look
at. Like all greyhounds, I nap a lot and I do need my beauty sleep!
Be aware, though, we sometimes “sleep startle.” That means an
animal might snap or growl when awakened suddenly. I might be
dreaming a tyrannosaurus rex is chasing me! (I’ll bet you thought
I didn’t know what a T-rex is!) Just call my name and I’ll wake up.
Better yet—hold up a treat. I’m there already! Come look at us. I
know you’ll find just the right greyhound for you.
