In Topic: Dog Owners: Can You Fit A Greyhound In A Mk7 Fiesta?

I lift mine into the boot as she had an injury. My other dog jumps on the back seat without problems.

Greys weigh between 25 - 35 kg

Thanks,

been reading none-stop for weeks now, running out of stuff to read and watch but haven't seen those videos yet so cheers :)

[actually it appears as if those videos won't play - dropbox permision denied. maybe their dropbox osting has run out.

As you can see I have 2 and have no problems with them in the Fiesta. One in the boot and one on the back seat. I have a dog guard and protective boot liner and seat covers.
My 2 usually stand to start with then lay down once we're moving.

Thanks a lot! Very helpful post, and lush dogs!

Out of interest how do you get them in? will one of them jump into the boot, or is he lifted in or let in  through the inside with the seats down for a moment?

 

thanks again :)

Take a tape measure for the dog ! :)

 was thinking of taking a pig's ear, or some biscuits... does your dog like tape measures? :D :P

yikes that's a big dog! good find!

 

Depend on the size of the Greyhound I guess ?

 

That's unknown at the moment; they're all ex-racing greyhounds so their size will be similar, differing mostly with s3xes I guess. [can't say s3x on here :S]

 

just had news that I'm visiting the shelter at the weekend so I'll see if I can pose the same question there and see if it's suitable or not - maybe try one out!

cheers, not a bad solution; albeit a bit ugly!

 

No is the answer with seats up , unless you want rspca knocking on your door. Dogs need room to stand and move preferably in a cage for there safety and yours.

 

You know I'm just asking the question right? I'm not sure how or why the RSPCA would come knocking on my door but okay :)

 

I've already priced a dog guard (rather than a cage) up and there would be no question over the necessity of one if it was to go ahead. You can get cages made-up but it's too soon for that at this stage; more of question of 'will it fit'
