A famous breed, the Greyhound is known as the fastest dog in the world. Running up to 40 mph, he's also the first dog to ever be shown. An older breed stemming from Egypt in 2900 B.C., the Greyhound was brought by the Spanish to America in the 1500s. Loyal and loving pets, they are often thought of as lazy due to their mild temper and chilled out personality.
A reserved and quiet breed, the Greyhound feels comfortable living in a quiet home. Not a good playmate for younger children, this dog will do better with older children or as an only pet. Known to chase anything that runs, including cats, these pups are only good with felines if trained. OK for apartment living if regularly exercised, the Greyhound does best living indoors with a small yard for playtime.
Prone to bloat, the Greyhound does best with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lazily waking up in the morning to a rubdown, he'll enjoy sticking to his routine of a morning walk before his owner leaves for work. Enjoying having the house to himself, he'll lazily keep an eye on everything while you're away. Greeting you when you come in the door, he'll be ready for a run and perhaps a bit of racing before the day is over. Just make sure to keep him on the leash in case he spots a rabbit and feels the need to chase it down.
