English model Twiggy Lawson is urging anybody thinking about adopting a dog to consider adopting a greyhound, saying:
"Greyhounds make fantastic pets. They undergo a transformation when they leave the track. They turn from speed machines to docile couch potatoes. I am devastated to hear about the Trust's struggle. I would urge anyone who is considering a dog to think greyhounds."
The 61-year-old model has lent her support to the Retired Greyhound Trust, whose figures have taken a dive in the last year with 1,000 greyhounds currently living in their kennels.
Check out the pics below of the famous face posing with her greyhound friends while she stopped by the Trust's Kent branch in the U.K.!
We hope more people take Twiggy's lead and consider making these lovely dogs a part of their family.
