Description

Few dogs are as emotionally engaging or physically elegant as the greyhound. None are as swift. Its unmatched fleetness is key to the breed’s longtime survival. Bred to hunt, the greyhound has a lineage extending back 8,000 years. Throughout their history, greyhounds have been the companions of kings and an inspiration to writers and artists alike.

Today hundreds of young and healthy purebred greyhounds that do not make the grade on U.S. racetracks are in need of adoptive homes. Through the efforts of hundreds of greyhound-adoption groups, many former racing dogs become family members in loving homes each year. With greater exposure of the breed all of these dogs can be placed after their tenure on the track and the breeding farms is over.

The otherworldly beauty, quiet grace, and loving disposition of the retired racing greyhound were the inspiration for GREYHOUNDS.The dogs are photographed against a pristine white background, to captures the greyhounds’ indomitable spirit—their spunk, humor, mystery, and charm. The pictures, along with evocative texts by Alice Sebold, Alan Lightman, Neko Case and Yvonne Zipter, make this book a wonderful gift for yourself or anyone who has ever shared his or her life with a dog.

The goal for this book is to change the face of greyhound rescue and put more dogs in their adoptive homes.

Each book will be signed by the author with the inscription of the buyers choice.
