The road to rehoming is a little longer for some greyhounds and Betty’s story is a great example of how treatment and rehabilitation before retiring to GAP can pay off big time.
Betty’s original owner worked hard to ensure that an injury was not going to be the end of the road for a very special dog.
Betty was known on the track as ‘Take a Chance’ and she suffered an injury on the track when she fractured her hock in February this year. Her owners, in a tribute to her name, took a chance that her hock could be repaired and while her racing days were well and truly over, her life as a pet is looking very bright.
Betty’s owners had her treated by Queensland veterinary specialists and, along with a rehabilitation process completed in May, she was ready to retire to QRIC GAP to prepare for her new life as a pet.
In a perfect ending, Betty was successfully rehomed in July and everyone at GAP wishes her well, as taking a chance on her has paid off for her and her new family.
