Adopting the Racing Greyhound by Cynthia A. Branigan

The first edition of this book was responsible for inspiring tens of thousands of people to adopt ex-racers. Now, this fully updated edition features groundbreaking veterinary information not available anywhere else. Greyhound authority Cynthia Branigan–who has placed over 4,000 Greyhounds through her organization–offers updated statistics on the costs involved with adopting as well as new health information, such as warnings about tick-borne diseases and suggestions on buying veterinary insurance. Branigan carefully explains how to care for a Greyhound–everything from feeding and grooming to training–and how to extend the dog’s life span. Readers will also find a wealth of updated information on medical conditions in Greyhounds and the latest in tests and treatment.

Gave a lot of good information. I also read Greyhounds for Dummies and between the two I felt pretty well prepared for my adoption.
