Adorable Video Shows Chilled-Out Rescue Greyhound Snoozing On Bed As Her Owner Lifts Her Up To Make Bed Around Her

This entertaining video shows the lazy greyhound who loves to snooze on her owner’s bed – and will not even move while the bed is being made.

Rescue dog Libby came to the UK in February this year after spending her whole life in “horrendous” conditions at a notorious greyhound racing stadium in the Chinese region of Macau.

The only living conditions she knew were a tiny concrete cell, where she slept on the floor, without a blanket.

But Libby has seemingly had no trouble adjusting to home comforts – and spends much of her day sprawled across the bed of her new owners, Saz and Rick Back, 57.

This entertaining video shows the lazy greyhound who loves to snooze on her owner’s bed – and will not even move while the bed is being made.

In fact, Libby loves a snooze so much that Saz and Rick frequently have to make the bed around her, lifting her out the way to get the duvet in place.

In a sweet video, Rick can be seen shifting Libby around the double bed as he neatens the sheet, with the blue greyhound totally unfazed and unmoving as he pants with the extra effort.

The loving dog just gazes up at her owner lazily as Saz, 49, laughs in the background.

Saz, who works for a solicitors firm, said: “The ironic thing is that Rick was actually putting down a blanket to stop dog hair from getting on the duvet.

“But in doing so, he was pulling Libby all over the bed and getting her hair all over the duvet.”

And Saz added that this is not an uncommon occurrence for the chilled-out dog.

Saz, from Wellington, Somerset, added: “People have this massive misconception of greyhounds that they need a lot of exercise.

“But really, they’re 45 mile-an-hour couch potatoes. They do really sprint, but they only do that for a burst of about 40 seconds.

“They need a 20-minute walk, twice a day. Then they take about 18 hours to recover.”

Libby only came to live with Saz and Rick, who have two other greyhounds, on May 1.

She was rescued by the “wonderful” Forever Hounds Trust on February 14 this year – her fifth birthday – from the notorious Macau Canidrome racing stadium in China.

Saz said: “All she knew was a three metre by two metre concrete hole where she slept.

“She didn’t even have a blanket. It was horrendous.

“Dogs are born and die in that stadium. Once a dog stops winning races, it gets killed.

“Libby had to learn what everything was – everything that is normal to other dogs, like trees, cars, houses, even wind. She had never seen any of that before.

“When she came to us at the start of May she didn’t even know how to go up stairs.

“But now, she will bolt up the stairs as soon as she hears the bedroom door open.

“Our bed is quite high, so she had to learn to leap – but she found that quite easy to do. And now, she loves the bed.”

Saz added that Forever Hounds Trust have done a “phenomenal” job of rescuing and rehoming Libby and other dogs from the Macau Canidrome.

“It breaks my heart of think of Libby in the Canidrome, and what could have happened to her if Forever Hounds Trust hadn’t been there to help her.

“If seeing this video helps to get even one dog homed, then we’d be massively grateful.”
