Introducing our new Greyhound, “Movie!” We just adopted him last week, and I want to let you know about the great organization that brought us together.

They’re Royal Hounds Greyhound Adoption. I wrote about RHGA in April, explaining their mission. Now that I’ve personally gone through the adoption process with them, I can say without a doubt that Royal Hounds is the best rescue group I’ve come into contact with. The best.

And I don’t mean that to take away from anyone else. If you read our blog, you know how much I love dogs. I appreciate the tireless work and bottomless love found at all rescues. But, sometimes you just have give someone five gold stars for their efforts when you’ve personally experienced it.

I’m impressed by how thorough they are. RHGA really puts a lot of thought into matching you with your hound. They do extensive interviews and spend a lot of time educating and prepping people so they’re ready to give their dog the best care right from that first day.

If you wanna bring a Greyhound into your life, look up Royal Hounds!

So, that makes one more at our house. Movie joins Stewie, our first Pug and Parfait, another Pug who we fell in love with while fostering. We’ll keep sharing their stories here, along with the many dogs we at Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers have the privilege of walking.

    Congratulations on adopting Movie. He is beautiful!

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all greyhounds could find their forever home? Sadly this is not the case thatnks to constant overbreeding by the greyhound racing industry.

    Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane. Greyhounds endure lives of nearly constant confinement, kept in cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around. While racing, many dogs suffer and die from injuries including broken legs, paralysis, and cardiac arrest. And many greyhounds are euthanized every year, as the number retired from racing exceeds the number of adoptive homes.

    At racetracks across the country, greyhounds endure lives of confinement. According to industry statements, greyhounds are generally confined in their cages for approximately 20 hours per day. They live inside warehouse-style kennels in stacked cages that are barely large enough to stand up or turn around. Generally, shredded paper or carpet remnants are used as bedding.

    An undercover video recently released by GREY2K USA shows the conditions in which these gentle dogs are forced to live: http://www.grey2kusa.org/azVideo.html

    Dogs play an important role in our lives and deserve to be protected from industries and individuals that do them harm.
