Greyhounds have been racing since biblical times, though the sport is dying a slow death in the U.S. There are only about 50 dog tracks remaining in 15 states; other states have banned the sport. Yet, thousands of greyhounds are euthanized each year when their careers end. Rescue organizations, like REGAP, Retired Greyhounds as Pets, foster these dogs and then make them available for adoption as family pets. In this episode of the Good Dog Podcast, Joanne speaks with Ken Marten of the Michigan chapter of REGAP and dispels the myths about this lovable breed.

While shelter dogs often come with baggage, there are many who will make perfect pets. In this episode of Good Dog, Jan McHugh Smith, President of the San Francisco SPCA, advises listeners on how to select the right dog for your lifestyle from an animal shelter.

Designer or hybrid dogs have become high fashion in Hollywood, but Gary Garner, founder of the American Canine Hybrid Club, has been breeding and registering these pups for decades. In an effort to capture the characteristics of two different breeds, breeders have been experimenting with every conceivable mix. Imagine a chihuahua-dalmation (chimation?). Some combinations are best left to the imagination! Many mixes include poodles in an attempt to create non-shedding non-poodles, but there are no guarantees. Learn all about hybrid dogs on this episode of Good Dog.
