It's nice to hear you are interested in Greyhounds. They are great dogs. First, I suggest you take a look at www.greytalk.com. It should have almost all the information you would ever need on greyhounds.
I have one Greyhound (and two whippets). They are a bit different from other breeds. They are prety calm dogs and don't take up much space indoors considering their size. As sprinters, they like to tear it up racing around, but tire pretty quickly (compared to say a hunting breed). So your ordinary walks mixed up with seom running every now and then should take care of their exercise.
You do have to be carefull to always have a grey on a lead ouitside of enclosed areas. If they chase something, they can be off and out of sight before you can do anything about it. Also, with your one small dog you are going to need to look for a grey with less prey drive (the rescues temperment test their dogs so you can find one that is small dog friendly). Also, while outside , it would probably be best to muzzle the grey when they are running around and playing just to play it safe.
