She is very tall! She can reach my counter tops and, in my experience, Greyhounds have no compunction in helping themselves from work tops and tables etc so I will have to be vigilant. A good dog for old codgers because Chris doesn't have to bend down to fuss her
She is very thin but not emaciated. She came from a farm yard in Ireland where she was used as a breeding machine. The owner said that "she never had any back on her".
The rescue sent all her meds with her and she is on our version of Metacam (Rheumacom in Ireland). Her teeth are, as they said, truly awful so she has some gel to keep the bacteria down. Also is some probiotic gel just in case. They said she has corns, too, but I have not probed her too much yet.
So far she has eaten what I have given her which is, a very conservative, tinned Rocco "sensitive" in small amounts four times per day. She has taken the odd bit of Georgia's food which is a new dry pressed food called Tribal. I hope it agrees with her because it will make life easier. Giving a huge Greyhound tinned food, especially as it is complete, will be a bit of a challenge with the shopping and storage of it.
A very sweet girl as most greyhounds are. She does wake up very early though and cry out for attention!
