I've seen this question asked in forums before and read articles about it online, but I just wanted to get some more opinions on this, so sorry for the repetition. Here's my situation: I'd love a companion animal but I live in a 2nd floor apartment (alone) and work 9-5, so I'm researching which pets are suitable for this situation. I've read that greyhounds are suitable for apartments because of their relatively low activity level, provided they receive everything they need in terms of exercise, care, stimulation etc. I have 2 bedrooms and a large living room, so I think I have sufficient space for both me and the dog to feel comfortable. Although I'll be able to walk it in the morning and evening, I'm just concerned about how greyhounds are affected by being alone for most of the day. How likely are they to become destructive out of boredom? Also I'm concerned about getting the dog downstairs and outside in time if it's bursting for a wee! If anyone has a similar situation or if they have greyhounds themselves, I'd really appreciate any advice/info! Obviously this is a big decision and I want to consider every angle. I definitely don't want my love of dogs to cloud my judgement and I don't want to take on a greyhound (or any dog) if it's not going to be a good fit for my living situation.
