MYTH NINE: GREYHOUNDS ARE LARGE DOGS AND THEREFORE NEED LOADS OF SPACE TO LIVE IN
Greyhounds are very space-efficient. Not only can they compact themselves into an impossibly small ball for optimum cat-cuddling, they’ve even been voted as one of the best breeds for apartment living. As long as their sharp minds are kept active (lots of play time and interaction) and they are walked regularly, a greyhound can make a perfect inner-city companion!
In my experience, Rassilon will take up as much room as he is able. If he is sleeping in the lounge, (without his settee), he is MORE than happy to curl up on a chair. But if he is alone in the bedroom he will spread himself over the bed. However, when I go to bed, he will slide into any space that is available. (with his settee, he will spread himself over the full 3 seats and probably the arms as well)
I have found that greyhounds are happy to fit in, as long as you are near them. Greyhounds just want to be with their human companions.
When you hear a greyhound owner telling you that their dog “fits in”, that can mean it fits in with their lifestyle; It fits in with other animals, or it fits in at home, where is will fill whatever area is available for it.
