Thats who I got mine from. when it was run by an Aussie trainer... retired from the track.We've got two and working on getting a third one later this year, although the logistics of going from two to three dogs is hugely different than going from one to two.
You're very fortunate to have Operation Greyhound nearby to you (El Cajon) as they're an excellent group at rehoming ex-racers. (They get their dogs from the Caliente Racetrack.) I got my first grey from them (a puppy, no less) and would continue getting dogs from there if it weren't a two-day trek out and then back for me. Bruna and Bob are lovely and caring folks and the greyhound community they've created is exemplary with walks and annual picnics.
My dog had a crypt orchid so neutering was as expensive as a spay. even more so because they cant have barbituates.
There were at least two organizations that I knew of here in El Cajon... One was very draconian with regard to who they would allow to have a greyhound. I may not opt to do it again because of that vetting period. Home inspection Lifestyle chriteria.... interviews with your vet....
it would break my heart to be disallowed
