GREYHOUNDS ARE IDEAL AS PETS

Finding a dog is easy…

But finding a family friendly dog is a challenge that Galgos As Pets take very seriously. Our galgos adoption program begins from the first point of contact you have with us. Our goal is to find you a new loving family member so that you live ‘happily ever after’.

Our adoption process will help match you to the best greyhound for you and your family.

We pride ourselves on matching the right dog to you and your circumstances, as well as providing you with comprehensive support during and after the adoption process.

GENTLE TEMPERAMENT

Galgos are renowned for their superior health, particularly amongst large breed dogs. Unlike many other breed, greyhounds have been selectively bred for performance not appearance. Serious health problems associated with large dogs such as hip dysplasia are almost rare amongst greyhounds. Greyhounds live an average 12 to 14 years.

HEALTHY BREED

Retired Galgos are wonderful individuals each has its own unique personality, just as we do. They are gentle, affectionate dogs, many prefer to lounge around the house, others like to be part of a home with more activity but generally they are considered family friendly dogs. They are not known to bark excessively and are quietly curious about the world.

MINIMAL GROOMING

Greyhounds are very low maintenance. They have short coats with very little oil in their skin, which means they have minimal shedding and don’t have the trademark ‘dog smell’. For this reason a bath four to five times a year is more than enough to keep your greyhound clean.
