Its great that you took in an older dog, was he an ex racer?
They are fabulous little dogs. I might get one, one day. They are far too energetic for my current needs. Miniature versions of greys but with 1000 times more energy. My boy just sleeps all day and all night and comes to life for a while to race around in whirly circles and race up and down the hallway.
Yes, my grey is an ex-racer. He was retired after he tore the muscles from ankle to hip in his hind legs, poor thing. I spoke to his original trainer a while ago so I could find out his history. His owner/trainer became quite fond of him "the mad bugger" and almost kept him as a pet, but then put him up for adoption.
Contrary to popular belief, they don't need much exercise and they don't need much room. They'd even make good pets in a flat/unit, so long as you did give them some decent exercise.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
