So you’re looking to adopt an Greyhound, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Greyhounds are the essence of the dog breeder’s credo “Form follows function.” From the narrow, aerodynamic skull to the shock-absorbing pads of the feet, Greyhounds are perfectly constructed for high-speed pursuit. The lean beauty of the Greyhound’s “inverted S” shape, created by the deep chest curving gently into a tightly tucked waist, has been an object of fascination for artists, poets, and kings for as long as human beings have called themselves civilized. Greyhounds are the template from which other coursing hounds have been struck. The champion sprinter of dogdom, the Greyhound dog breed is a gentle, noble, and sweet-tempered companion with an independent spirit. For thousands of years these graceful hounds have been an object of fascination for artists, poets, and kings.”
An Greyhound typically ranges from 68.58cm to 76.2cm in height, and weighs from 27.2155422kg to 31.751465900000003kg.
