Welcome to GPA-Louisville!

Are you thinking about adopting a dog?  We’d love to talk to you about making a retired racing Greyhound a part of your family.

Greyhounds are clean, quiet and docile.  Most are fine living with other canine breeds and many get along well with cats.  Retired racers make wonderful household pets and companions but they are strictly inside pets.  They make excellent walking companions and most are great with well behaved children.

• Personality wise he is very sweet, shy at first but quick to warm up to people. In the house he is very chill for a young dog - likes to find a comfy spot and lounge for hours but also enjoys his morning zoomies. He also loves lounging on the deck/backyard.

• Good with children - we have a two year old he’s been great with.

• Good with other dogs big and small. Not sure about cats we haven’t met one yet.

• House training great - has only had one accident when we first got him.

• Great in a crate. Sleeps in his crate all night and is crated and quiet when we’re gone. Occasionally chooses to go in there on his own sometimes as well to nap.

• Good with leash walks. Still gets a little spooked with loud cars but has gained a lot of confidence since we first got him.

• Loads up and rides in the car super well.
