Greyador

INTRODUCTION

The Greyador is a mixed breed dog, a cross between the Labrador and Greyhound breeds. These puppies are medium to large in size. Gentle but strong, Greyadors inherit some of the best traits of their two parents.Greyadors are also sometimes called Greyhound Labradors or Lurchers. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed puppies in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. Greyhounds can live happily in a flat with an hour’s brisk walk a day. Although if you have a large house with a yard where they can run and play fetch, they will love it even more. Above all material things, dogs need love and care. If you want to take your Greyador on a hike, make sure he’s wearing a secure harness. AniMall24 recommends a dog bed to give your medium-sized Greyador a good night’s sleep. You should also buy a dog wormer for your puppy with a lot of shedding.

HIGHLIGHTS

Greyadors are mixed breed dogs. The main colours of the Greyador are black, brown, white, tan, fawn, red, silver, blue and brindle. Sometimes their coat is solid, and sometimes their coat is a mixture of colours.Greyadors shed a lot and are not a good choice for allergy sufferers. They will need daily brushing. Greyadors are active dogs. They should be given a 60-minute walk at a brisk pace or a hike every day. If they do not get enough exercise, they may have destructive behaviour. Their sweet and gentle temperament makes the Greyador an excellent companion for a family with children of all ages. The Greyador can also get along well with other dogs. Caution should be exercised with cats and other small animals. Greyadors are intelligent, although when it comes to training they can be stubborn. Be sure never to shout and remember to use positive reinforcement and treat rewards.

HISTORY

Although the Greyador mixed breed may have existed naturally over the years, designer breeders began to intentionally mix Labrador Retrievers and Greyhounds in the 1990s, probably in North America.Although the known history of the Greyador is not very long, it may be useful to understand the history of the parent breeds of this mix.The Greyhound is an ancient breed, originating in the Middle East and North Africa. Greyhounds are depicted in Ancient Egyptian art and are the only breed of dog mentioned in the Bible.Labrador Retrievers originate from Newfoundland. Labrador Retrievers, which are named after the Newfoundland capital of St. Johns, used to help fishermen retrieve fish that escaped from hooks, to tow lines and perform all sorts of fishing dog tasks. Breeders wanted to blend the two parent breeds to create an elegant, athletic and strong family dog. Although the Greyador began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the puppy for you. Check local shelters, look for Greyador rescues, or check with breed-specific Labrador Retriever and Greyhound rescues, as they often help re-home them.The Greyador is recognised by:DRA (Dog Registry of America, Inc).
