Actually, we got our grey when we lived in the city. They are perfect city dogs. They sleep all day long, just need a doggie walker during the midday for a walk (which in the city is easy to find!). And, the best thing is, most DON'T bark. My dog only barks every other week, when the cleaning people come with their vacuum. That scares her. Other than that, she's only barked I'd say 10 times in 6 years! A lot of city people have greys and tons of them. Our friends in the city have 6 hounds.
