My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hello there, my name is Rena

If you have some time, I would LOVE to talk about myself for a little bit.
I am 4 years old; my weight is approx. 65lbs.
As a Lurcher I have a bit more energy than your typical Greyhound and would need a bit more exercise.
I came to Fast Friends from Ireland, after spending most of my life as a primary hunting dog. Once I was no longer needed, I was surrendered to PAWS (in Ireland).

Playtime is the best! I love to be silly with a tennis ball, soccer ball, or really anything that is a sphere! When I go for walks, I will be keeping my eyes peeled for any squirrels, birds, and chipmunks that might come our way, don’t worry though! I will keep them away from you, so don’t be scared.
Please consider letting me be a part of your family, I am great with kids over the ages of 8, I prefer them over adults!

Rena would do best in a moderate to high activity level home.

* Fast Friends adopts in the New England area. If you are interested in Rena or one of our other available dogs, please complete an adoption application at

More about this rescue

Fast Friends is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to educating the public about Greyhounds and sighthounds from around the world with the primary goal of finding responsible, loving homes for them. Fast Friends envisions a world where no Greyhound or sighthound lacks for a loving home and these breeds are valued and celebrated for their uniqueness.

Fast Friends works closely with both international and domestic partners to bring retired racing Greyhounds and other sighthounds in need from countries where they have almost no chance of a local adoption to its facility in Swanzey, New Hampshire. Each dog receives high quality care with a focus on one-on-one staff time and individualized plans to help them overcome any neglect or trauma they have experienced so that they can be successful in a home. We are dedicated to taking in dogs with the most challenging circumstances.
