I live in the countryside in South East Scotland with my cat, 2 greyhounds & partner. My greyhounds are the inspiration behind the products I am selling on Etsy. I think their sleek lines & graceful (& at times not so graceful!) poses make striking prints.
Sadly, every year many greyhounds are abandoned or destroyed. Bred in large numbers for the racing industry, after short or unsuccessful careers they are surplus to the requirements of their trainers. Yet these gentle & sweet-natured dogs make wonderful companion animals & I couldn't imagine life without my two!
Founded in 2007 & run entirely by volunteers, Gracehounds (Scottish Registered Charity No. SC038872) is a small local charity dedicated to finding permanent homes & a better life for greyhounds & lurchers: http://www.gracehounds.plus.com
