Overview: The Greyhound is a playful dog that enjoys the company of other canines and animals. This breed is somewhat easy to train in being a watchdog and has good protection potential. This dog enjoys being with its owner and gets along well with other humans. The Greyhound doesn't stand up well against the cold or the heat but also doesn't have a lot in the need for grooming.
Temperament: A calm and well behaving breed, the Greyhound is a respectful and obedient dog. If raised alongside them, this breed gets along well with other dogs and animals. However, they often chase smaller animals when given the chance. The Greyhound is shy around strangers at first but warms up to them over time.
History: It is unknown as to when or why the Greyhound was bred as there are little to no records of its breeds beginning. The name of this dog could be derived from Graius, which means Greek, or from the Latin word for high grade, gradus. During the time of the Saxons the Greyhound was used in Britain by both commoners and nobility for different reasons. The commoners liked it for its ability to hunt for food and the nobility liked it for sport. In the early 11th century only nobility were allowed to have Greyhounds and they were to be kept near forests the nobility owned. This law was repealed 400 years later. However, the Greyhound was still considered a breed reserved for the noble classes as it was not the best for hunting because it would be more of a liability to those that couldn't afford to own such a pet. This breed was brought to the United States by early American immigrants. Eventually, it gained popularity as a racing breed for the masses. Today, the Greyhound is used and bred for racing almost exclusively. It is very difficult to obtain a puppy of this breed outside of the National Greyhound Association which exercises strict control over breeding and ownership. It is possible to adopt retired adults.
Names: The Greyhound is known exclusively by that name.
Groups: The Greyhound was formally recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885 and assigned to the Hound Group.
Physical Characteristics: The average adult Greyhound can reach a height of 27 to 30 inches and can weigh about 60 to 70 lb. This breed has a single coat that is made of short hair that has a smooth and firm texture to it. The color of the coat can be any of these; black, white, red, blue, fawn, brindle, or any of the colors with splotches of white.
Care: This breed needs to go for a run at least once a day to stay in shape. The best environment for this dog is a safe one as it tends to run and not be able to stop in time and a place full of danger is not the best place for that. It enjoys living outdoors with a lot of space to itself with things to entertain it however it does need someplace comfortable and warm to sleep.
