Praise for male greyhounds continues to roll in since we asked for opinions on whether their size poses an issue to their adoptive families. As the testimonials will show, size does not matter!
Bill: I currently have three boys and one girl and have lost three girls. Of my seven, I have had three that were extremely clingy — two girls and a boy. I find no difference between the boys and girls. What I do find is that the shy ones are more loving once you win their trust. I also find that the girls are the alpha.
Anthony: I’ve had Jax (aka Runner) for three years now and he really is a little dog in a big dog body. he just wants to be a lap dog. He’s everything I could have asked for in a friend.
Cynde: As I write this my boy Admiral is literally laying across my lap dead asleep. I have had five boys and two girls (greys) and while the girls are sweet and of course I love(d) them dearly, in my experience the boys are more affectionate and always at my side. Boys rock!
Cindy: Our male “Get Over” is a very affectionate Grey, he loves to BE loved. I was afraid to bring a male onto the house because they like to “mark” their territory, but I haven’t had a single problem with him and the other 2 females. I kind of wish I would have gotten all males because the 2 females compete for everything!!!
Nancy: I want the biggest boy I can find! I miss my sweet baby that I had to put to sleep 2 years ago. I live in an area that isn’t covered by any rescue groups. I’d take 2 boys in a heartbeat!
James: Our boy “Bear” is the bestest dog EVER! A true gentle giant.
Angela: Our boy, Okie, is a gentle sweetheart!
John: Dillard is pushing 80 pounds, he’s probably the most laid back, relaxed dog i’ve ever seen. Very gentle with kids and sweet to everyone.
Linda: People say to me all the time “I want a small greyhound.” Well, it seems to me by the time they get to greyhound size, size doesn’t matter. I have a girl Aylee and a boy Thunder. Thunder is more boisterous but also has more personality.
Lynn: I had a 78-pound boy who was the most “chill” dog in the world. Now I have a 61-pound boy who everyone thinks is a girl because he is so small!
