What is my Greyhound trying to tell me? - By Marcia Herman

GreytHealth - By Suzanne Stack, DVM

Greytalk - Greytalk exists to provide people with a unique, fun and informative place to discuss the many facets of owning retired racing greyhounds. Although Greytalk is geared, primarily, toward racing greyhounds, we welcome owners of all breeds and, in fact, have many members who do not own retired racers.

Past Racing History, Breed Pedigree

The Greyhound Breed and Database The breeding database offers you a five-generation pedigree with red marked inbreeding. By clicking at the offspring or parents, you can move dynamically through the generations. Most of the data is from Australia, America, Ireland, Great Britain and the European Continent, with the oldest pedigrees going back to 1790. Therefore, you will see how the great greyhounds are bred. In fact, in many sirelines you can even travel back to a common ancestor, King Cob, whelped 1839.

Adopting The Racing Greyhound by Cynthia Branigan

The Reign Of The Greyhound by Cynthia Branigan

Care Of The Racing Greyhound by By Linda L. Blythe, James R. Gannon and A. Morrie Craig

Leo, A Greyhound's Tale - Leo is about a retired racer's search for love after becoming the pet of a celebrity couple who chose him only for his looks. Information on Greyhound behavior and care is woven into a plot that takes Leo from whimpering cowardice to heroic courage. Along the way, he becomes an accidental matchmaker.

All Breed Rescue Information in the Columbus area.

The Columbus Dog Connection is a 501c3 organization. We are a network of dog enthusiasts who rescue all breeds of dogs and puppies. Our pooches are rescued from abandonment/abuse situations and we assist shelters/humane societies by taking dogs from death row. We provide vet care and a foster home until a permanent home is found. Every dog that leaves our care is spayed/neutered, including 8 week old pups. We believe that allowing a pup to leave our care not spayed/neutered would perpetuate the problem we work so hard to overcome every day.

Pet Promise Life for Pets. Pets for Life. Saving one pet won't change the world. But it will change the world for that one pet!
PetPromise is an Ohio non-profit no-kill animal rescue organization comprised of a network of volunteers based in Columbus, Ohio.

The Columbus Dog connection also has an extensive list of Resources to Dog and Cat Rescue and Shelter listings in Ohio.
