Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust

Perry Barr Greyhound Trust and the world of ex-racing Greyhounds.

Greyhounds are highly people oriented and make hugely loving pets. They are typically intelligent, gentle, affectionate and even-tempered. They are quite laid back and docile, yet despite possessing remarkable stamina and endurance need only two twenty minute walks each day; less exercise than most other breeds of dogs. Most greyhounds walk quietly on a lead without pulling. Because they only have a single layer of fur and their coats are short and smooth, they don't get too dirty and can come back from muddy walks relatively clean, generally requiring little grooming. For this reason, Greyhounds generally do not cause allergic reactions in many people who are otherwise allergic to dogs. Greyhounds get along with children, the elderly and often live happily with other pets, including cats.

We are a branch of a national charity: The Retired Greyhound Trust charity no 269668, whose purpose is to raise awareness of and find homes for ex racing greyhounds. The retired Greyhound trust is the largest single breed re-homing organisation in the UK and possibly the world.
