Required Reading

We require our potential adopters to read these books in order to familiarize you with the breed and learn what to expect when adopting a Greyhound. You may choose either (or both!) of the following:

  1. Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies (Lee Livingood)
  2. Adopting The Racing Greyhound (Cynthia Branagan)

If you have children:

  1. Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies (Lee Livingood)
  2. Childproofing Your Dog (Brian Kilcommons and Sarah Wilson) *required if you have children or your greyhound will be interacting with children on a regular basis*

All of the above books are available on or call your local bookstore to check their inventory. We have purchased from Barnes & Noble, Borders, Half Priced Books, etc. They are also available to check out free of charge at your local library.

If you should decide to purchase any of these books online, we encourage you to do so through using the links provided below as Hounds of the Heartland will receive a percentage of the purchase price.
