What is 75 pounds and usually found snoozing in the sun or on your sofa? In my house, it’s Jethro and he’s a retired racer who has earned his naps.
Jethro, aka Myers (his race name), was raised to race other greyhounds, specifically in Florida. Lucky for us, he wasn’t very good on the racetrack, so at the ripe old age of three, he ended up at the Greyhound Adoption of Ohio. This Florida dog arrived in the middle of a Cleveland January, and when we met him, he wasn’t happy about the weather. My husband and I took an instant liking to Jethro and were able to adopt him a few weeks later. We overcame a few small challenges with Jethro, and he’s turned out to be a lovable and good companion. We are very glad we made the decision to bring him home.
