Boxer's are cool dogs,my friend has one,they are very affectionate,just stayaway from the pure white ones,way to many health issues due to the white gene.My neighbor had a Husky also,he had to put here down a few years ago due to brain cancer(it's a pretty common problem with purebred Huskies & malamutes or any other northern breeds).

My next dog will be a American Bully or a Presa Canario.

My fab guy has an American Bulldog. Most badass dog ever. He chews on full-sized Gatorade bottles for toys and he recently chewed a leather belt in half. 110lbs and he's a year old.

My previous dog was a 75 lb purebred american rednose pitbull,at 6 months old she would bite chunks out of hockey pucks,later on she would pop tennis ***** in less than ten seconds and destroy them in minutes,but the most impressive thing she did was bite through the sidewalls of car tires.There was nothing this dog could not bite through,crack,pop or destroy.

This dog had a incredible strong bite,first time during bite sleave training,she tore the bite sleave.

Sav,I love American bulldogs,they are just so big & thick with huge heads,my friend has 2 of them,scary looking dogs.

This was the first dog I ever had, he had to be put down after he bit my nephew. Who was at the time about 15 months old. I cant really blame him for biting though, my mom threw half a roast into his bowl after not giving him breakfast. Baby crawls up and puts his hand into the bowl. Got him right on the nose.
I wasnt there to witness.. pisses me off that my mom was being so negligent though. He was an awesome dog. Akita chow mix


I want to get a greyhound in the near future.. as soon as I have more room.

i have a greyhound. she's a rescue, so she's a retired racer. by far, the best dog i've owned. they don't require a lot of space and the ex-racer's are great on a leash. their speed is mind=blown. our grey is puma, her racing name was fuzzy's puma and we can trace lineage back 200 years through the breeding records. we have had her almost 5 years now, she spent the first 4 at a track. they don't have a lot of dander and they are very happy sleeping all day, which they do a LOT. they are very tough, and can sustain and manage a great deal of pain. it's part of their training. usually after a 10-20 minute run session, she'll sleep for 4-5 hours.

interesting,too, they are very fond of other greyhounds. in a group they will pack up and race each other as a pack. it's pretty impressive. very calm, gentle and loving too. people are intimidated by the muscle, size and teeth. when excited or happy, they will chatter their teeth and it sounds like they're purring.

Makes me want one even more.

A dog that sleeps almost as much as i do... perfect

i see you are either in WV or UT. the greyhound we adopted came from WV, but we lived in charlotte, NC at the time. there are a lot of rescue groups on the internet. the ones on the west coast come from AZ.

there are two sets of tatoos on a racing greyhound. one is a 'serial number' followed by a letter. the other ear has the birthdate. greyhound-data.com has a place to plug in the serial # and you can get the lineage and racing history.

Mr Woolery has a retired racer too.

I'm in utah, the WV is for West Valley. Guess I should just change it to SLC.
the place I was looking at: Rocky Mountain Greyhound Adoption gets their dogs from the Colorado kennels and farms.

Do they have the same rules for them where you are?


a. Your greyhound must always kept on leash whenever it is outdoors, unless in a totally fenced area. (Invisible fencing is not adequate.)
b. Identification tags must be kept on your greyhound at all times, stating the greyhound's home address and phone number as well as the GPA Salt Lake tag.
c. Your greyhound must be kept indoors except when getting walks, exercise or eliminating. Fenced yards are preferred and required with children under age 13 in the home.
d. Your greyhound must never be tied to anything.
e. You understand that your greyhound has not been raised in a home environment and will need time and patience to adjust. You will never discipline your greyhound by hitting him/her.
f. You agree to keep your greyhound up-to-date on all necessary shots and medical needs.
g. You agree to keep your greyhound as a pet and never use it for racing, breeding, or laboratory research.
h. If your greyhound should be missing for any reason, you agree to call GPA Salt Lake and animal services immediately.
i. If for any reason, you decide you cannot keep your greyhound, you will return him/her to GPA Salt Lake, who will then find a suitable home.
j. You agree to allow a GPA Salt Lake representative to follow up with phone calls and/or visits.
k. If at any time the greyhound is not being provided a proper home, the greyhound will be retrieved by GPA Salt Lake.

yep that all sounds familiar.

we adopted our out of mooresville, nc when we lived in charlotte.

something you have to be aware of with these dogs is their instinct. they are sight hounds, so they are alerted by movement. their night vision is very, very good, too. if you walk up on something, like a rabbit hiding in the grass, they will want to chase it when it runs without hesitation. we use a 6ft leash with a 3" nightingale collar (a must for this sort of dog). she has broken towards rabbits hard enough to knock me over. i'm 6'0 240#. these dogs will reach their top speed in 3 or 4 strides so when they do decide to run, their power is explosive.

any rescues will be tested for kids and cats. ours is not cat safe. kids she's ok with, but she tries to hide from them. we don't have any, so we don't worry about it. our grey is a fairly large bitch @ 70#, so when we goto the dog parks, she does not back down from larger or aggressive males. we bring her track muzzle as a precaution. only one mishap and it wasn't her fault (other dog owner agreed) and she messed that dog up pretty good.

electric fences don't work. with their speed and tolerance to pain, they'll blow right past it. woolery's dog is excellent in open spaces and doesnt need a leash, ours not quite as much.

caring for these dogs is easy. most have pretty grungy teeth from their track diet, so be sure to get them checked often. you also MUST find a vet who is familiar with greys. they require different anesthesia than other dogs. also, their blood is extremely oxygen-rich, so inexperienced vets will misdiagnose your dog. finding a good vet is easy through grey message boards online.

greys are used to being kept in small kennel crates most of their day so transitioning them to a home may require one so they can feel "safe" until they are comfortable. ours only needed one day to acclimate. that said, greys are quite happy in apartments or homes. we usually walk ours every night and a weekend dog park or beach time. some greys need to be taught to walk up and down stairs as they have never used them before. big door walls (patio doors) can be dangerous too in the same aspect.

these dogs are quite "bendy" and lay in some really unusual positions. as big as ours is, she can comfortably curl up into a tight ball and easily fit in the seat of my miata. they can also stretch out and take up half of a king-size bed.

i've owned many retrievers in my life. i like big dogs. this grey has been my favorite dog so far. she's pretty independent and stubborn, so ishe sometimes has a little bit of a cat's personality in a big dog's body.
