Review for Second Chance Greyhounds Inc, Douglasville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted our 1st greyhound in the mid 90's. Fletch had just come off the track and in spite of having to work through the phase of him having the "mind of a puppy and the biology of a pony" in terms of house training, he evolved into the best dog we ever had. A few years ago we found ourselves dog-less. I found the web site of Second Chance Greyhounds on the internet and was impressed with their prison training program AND the blogs describing the individual personalities of the dogs. Even though we are retired, we had very young grandchildren and needed a dog who would be good with kids. Among other attributes listed, Rocky's blog described him as liking "little humans". He was exactly as advertised in all respects. Even though we did not live in the Atlanta area, SCG was able to find a family to do our home study and 3 years ago, Rocky came nose to nose with our toddler grandson. They have been best buds ever since. We have 5 SCG families here in western North Carolina with a 6th soon to be added to our group. It has been a great way to meet some really nice folks. Almost everyone on the street wants to pet these gentle giants. My experience is that these dogs have wonderful and gentle personalities ( don't bark, don't dig, don't wake the neighbors!) and the fact that they come completely house broken and obedience trained is a HUGE plus! The prison program is a win/win for both dogs and humans. With dogs from this program, as the commercial says- all you add is love!
