The Townsville pet shop recently made the decision to stop purchasing puppies and cat from breeders and instead has opted to work with local re-homing groups to find loving home for pets in the region.

Greyhounds are an increasingly popular family pet option and more Australians are becoming aware that greyhounds not only boast a placid nature, they also make ideal family pets, amazing companions and a suitable dog even for the most inexperienced of dog owners.

Greyhounds are a calm loving animal, they thrive on affection and renowned for their gentle, trusting and sensitive nature.  As a result the breed makes them an ideal companion into the family home.
