Meet The Most Handsome Hound On Instagram & Win With Animates

By  |  0 Comments

You may accuse me of using the above headline to oversell this story but the truth is this boy really is the most handsome hound on Instagram – in my mind anyway! He also happens to be my hound which is probably why I’m a little biased, but greyhounds have an uncanny way of mesmerising all who meet them and before you know it . . . poof! . . .  you’ve fallen madly, deeply in love. Which is just as well given that each year hundreds of hounds need loving homes when they retire from racing and that’s where you come in. You can spread the word about Greyhounds As Pets (the organisation that rehomes ex-racers, you can make a donation or you can pay a dog’s entry fee into the GAP programme to ensure it finds a good home at the end of its career.

I’d also like to share a little secret about why Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) is so successful (in my opinion of course). GAP New Zealand is currently on track (pun intended) to re-home over 300 hounds this year – which is almost a hound a day.  How do they do it?  It’s the hounds that make their job so easy. You see these guys are the gentle giants of the canine world. They are sweet, laid-back, loveable, goofballs and if you’ve ever toyed with the idea of adding a four-legged friend to your family then I can honestly say you’ll never regret opening your home or your heart to a greyhound. So here are a few pics of my beautiful boy Chesta, maybe give him a follow on Instagram and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to enter to win a $50 Animates voucher to spoil your own furry friend.  Oh and if you want to see my boy in action back on the track you can watch him win HERE







Oh yeah . . . Happy New Year 🎉 #greyhound
