We'll be having a homecheck on Weds and if that goes OK then we'll shortly have a new dog. They're reserving one for us that we've seen that they think will be OK with the cat.

I just hope that she settles in well as I know that DH will be grumpy with me if the cat leaves home or the dog barks all the time!

Also do spayed female dogs still come into season? Never had a bitch before.

Any general tips for helping her to settle in.

Very best of luck - the rehoming people will give you lots of advice and will know best how much your new dog has seen of normal life, and what to do to help her settle. In the meantime, have a look at the Retired Greyhound Trust website for good advice.

Do make sure the dog's been tested with cats, though - some greyhounds are absolutely fine with cats etc., but if they are not it can be disastrous. A normal dog may chase a cat but a greyhound has the speed to catch it sad

Anyway, well done on getting dh to say yes, and I wish you every happiness with the new arrival wink
