This article sent my blood pressure through the roof with rage.
Greyhounds are a creature very close to my heart. I despise the fact that in this day and age these poor animals are still breed to race and kennel operator treat the innocent dogs like trash, especially those who cannot or do not race to make these kennel owners money.
My girl was such a case. The poor dog was gravely ill - losing as much as 10 pounds from her first race to her last (only two months later). For a dog to lose THAT much weight, it is clear to anyone that the dog is physically sick! Sick as a direct effect of the horrible kennel conditions she was forced to live in.
She was lucky because I gave her a second chance, I put up with all her problems, got her back on the road and now she is a perfecto angel - she is healthy, happy, and leading a full life.
Had this UK kennel operator had her, my girl would have been on the vet school's table in pieces. How many gorgeous girls and boys like mine had their life brutally cut short for 30 quid?
