We adopted Lister and Snoop from Birmingham Greyhound Protection. We had been looking for a dog that would put-up with us both working during the week and didn't want to go-through the hassles of taking-on a puppy. Greyhounds were probably way-down our list - until we met some BGP people outside Pets At Home, Solihull.

Lister is an ex-racer first registered in Ireland and named "Crinkill George" (Racing results click here)

Snoop also raced - in England - his racing name was "Barkhams Intruda" (Racing results click here)

There are even 3 videos of Snoop racing! - In Track 5, In Track 6, and again in Track 6

Irish greys have TWO I.D. tattoos  - one in each ear, and English greys have one. Apparently, black greyhounds are not as popular as other colours when it comes to finding homes for them. I really cannot see why and I hope these photos show just how gorgeous they can be!

We agreed to take Lister on for a 2-week trial in November 2013......and he stayed! We later decided to get a "pal" for him in order to bring him out of his timidity and shyness - and so we adopted the other monster, Snoop, in April 2014

I would recommend anyone thinking of adopting a rescue dog to consider a greyhound and to take a look at Birmingham Greyhound Rescue - or one of the many other greyhound rescue organisations out there.
