Greyhound NOT considered a Dog in Kansas
According to and news story from a Kansas TV station, Are Greyhounds Dogs? Kansas Says No.
Two years after the Parimutuel Racing Act was passed in Kansas, the law protecting pets in the state was changed to exclude greyhounds from the designation of dog.There are those in Kansas who want to change the law to have Greyhounds designated as dogs.
The National Greyhound Association, based in Abilene, Kan., disagrees. The executive director called the change unnecessary and said greyhounds aren't bred for pets, and therefore, shouldn't fall under pet protection laws.My Son has two Greyhounds, and at times has as many as four. He fosters them and cares for them until a suitable home can be found. As far as he is concerned, they are definately Dogs. They are what everyone who really loves dogs wants, a friend and companion.
