Greyhounds are one of the oldest dog breeds, used for hunting and racing for thousands of years.
Greyhounds have a lean, muscular build, long legs, deep chest, narrow waist, and long, powerful neck.
Despite their size and speed, greyhounds are gentle, calm, and loyal. They love human companionship and make great pets.
Many retired racing greyhounds need homes. Adopt one through rescue groups to get a sweet, mellow companion.
Greyhounds need daily exercise but are otherwise low-maintenance. Their short coat requires little grooming.
Prone to osteosarcoma. Need coats and sweaters for warmth. Otherwise a generally healthy, long-lived breed.
Greyhounds are sensitive, so positive reinforcement works best. Crate training aids housebreaking. Work on recall due to prey drive.
