We've had her for 5 years. She's my baby too and I love her so much. My son is only 1 and I've been working so hard to keep them separated unless I'm right there to make sure he's being gentle with her. Someone else was "watching" them while I was making dinner and I heard it happen. I'm just not the kind of person to allow my child to harrass animals, nor would I ever leave babies and dogs together unattended. I never thought this would ever happen in my home and now it has.
It's not the dog's fault. She's the sweetest, most sensitive creature. She's just not typically dog friendly and feels nervous around infants and small children. I think I have to rehome her now and I was wondering if anyone here knows anything about how to do that. I don't want to send her back to the kennel. Ideally I could keep her here until I find a suitable home for her.

I'm so sorry this happened and you're facing this decision. Call Heather and don't worry. She will find a wonderful home for your fur baby.

Thanks for your support everyone. We've got them separated into different areas of our home, only letting Oni into the main area when baby is sleeping. We're trying to give her lots of walks and attention and she gets to sleep on our bed all day. She doesn't enjoy being left out of family time though :/ I will contact Heather to see if there's a better situation out there for Oni than this. Don't worry Greys4us, I would rehome with gra's involvement, but we absolutely would not return her to the kennel. We'll see how they can help while we keep Oni in our care.
echandler: Hello, is anyone in the London are interested in organizing a greyhound only play date? I find it hard to meet fellow greyhound owners in the area and my 2 girls love to play with other hounds

adoragrey: That is a great idea!!! I have a 4 yr old greyt boy who also loves to play. And I know there are other greyt parents who would also enjoy it. Please post the date here and I will let you know if I can attend.

lovehounds: Hi! I am new here but over the past year have been reading and viewing everything I can find about greyhounds. Also enjoy seeing people's posts/photos of their beautiful dogs. I am recovering from surgery and once I am well I want very much to adopt! ☺💖

misscarlotta: So happy to see new pups. Wish I could take 1 or more, but I have to keep working 14 hours a day to support my adult children.

pengoowin: I am a newbie when it comes to the breed, are greys good with disabled adults. Are they skittish with wheelchairs?

Heather (& KC): Hi pengoowin! It truly depends on the dog and Heather Main would help you identify the right dog for you. I have seen some with their human in a wheelchair. 🙂

padeschamps: I am new here, trying to absorb as much info as possible to see if a greyhound would be right for our family. I've done the puppy phase with the doggies I now own. And I am so interested in the rescue of older dogs to find their new forever homes.

padeschamps: What I am having a hard time finding out, is the cost for the adoption of a greyhound. And what screening process do you have to go through. And how long is the adoption process generally
Aug 6, 2017 1:19:33 GMT -5
Heather (& KC): Hi Padeschamps! Welcome. Contact Heather Main. Her email and phone number are at the top of this board! These dogs aren't rescues but retired racers who are ready to start home life! Good luck!
