General rule of thumb is if you need a jacket, they need a jacket. No big deal and they usually still love going for short walks.

This was one of our fosters, one we wish we had kept. Racing name was 'Go Brenda Go'.
You can actually lookup your grey by their racing name and watch some of their recorded races online.
I knew they needed some cover up, but had no idea there were so many up north! It can get butt cold in Ohio, and I see plenty of Grey's in our neighborhood. I stand corrected, non-issue

Great dogs, on my list for when we get another.

to top it all off, my sister just sent me a photo of her new six week old Boston Terrier/French Bulldog puppy that she gets in two weeks.

It is melt-in-your-mouth cute. Insane.

My 2ยข....

Adopt. Spend some time with your prospective new friend via fostering if possible. See if the level of commitment is right for you with the specific animal you initially connect with.
It's really tough to tell if it's right with just a quick walk through, or if a particular choice will take more work.

Although some breeds generally have specific characteristics that you're looking for, each animal is an individual. The great thing about a mature shelter / rescue dog is you can see exactly what you're getting.

Best of luck with your decision.
