There are a number of websites, including, that allow you to trace the pedigree and racing history of registered greyhounds by looking up their racing name or their sire and dam.

Rita believes in the phrase "no such things as too much!"

Too much food? No such things. Too many hugs? Nope. Too much eye contact? NEVER! This spunky class clown will fill your life with so much love and devotion. Too much love? She thinks not. This quirky hound loves her toys and will make you laugh regularly with her clumsy but enthusiastic play style. She loves running around the yard, showing you what an athletic and loyal companion she is. Rita lives for your praise. She will do anything to show you that she is a "very good girl" and is incredibly sensitive to criticism. One of the more vocal hounds, Rita will not hesitate to let you know if she is feeling neglected and has a trademark "'squeaky wheel" noise that she employs when she is feeling under appreciated, taking the phrase "the squeaky wheel gets the grease," to a whole new level.

At night she sleeps next to my side of the bed and follows me to the kitchen if I wake up in the middle of the night for some water. She just wants to make sure I make it back to bed safely. Ideally she is in a home where she doesn't have to spend a lot of time alone (be it with human or hound companionship) as she doesn't like to be left alone and will cry, cry, cry if she feels she's been abandoned. However, upon your homecoming you will find the world's happiest hound to see your face returned to her. She will squeak with joy every single time. She's just so glad you're safe.

So if you are looking for a quirky, devoted hound with a big personality who will walk to the ends of the earth to make you happy, Rita is your new best bud.
