They’re amazing dogs. And if you’re like most greyhound people, or if you’re considering adopting one, you probably have wondered many things about them. Where did they originate from? What do I need to know before adopting? How does fostering work? What can be done about separation anxiety?

About Greyhounds is the podcast where we’ll explore these and several other questions and you’ll discover the answers. We’ll also take you back in time to tell stories about greyhounds who made their marks on history.

About Greyhounds is delivered to you by Greyhound Friends of New Jersey (GFNJ), a 501(c) (3) organization. We’re dedicated to placing retired greyhounds into loving homes.

IMG_9681.JPGJacqueline Howard hosts and produces About Greyhounds for Greyhound Friends of New Jersey (GFNJ). But she is not alone in its development. Special thanks goes to Linda Lyman, GFNJ President, Patty Comerford, GFNJ Secretary, show guests who share their expertise, and Albert Cavallo … the husband, who extends his technical and artistic prowess to this program.

Jacqueline is a member of the GFNJ Board of Trustees and, along with Albert, adopted their first greyhound in 2000. By day, she works as a writer for a Fortune 50 company and has authored books in the humorous fiction genre; one based on her late greyhound, Max, and others where greyhounds are included as important characters. And, of course, she loves greyhounds.
