We would love to talk to you about Greyhounds, a very old and exceptional breed.  Their beginnings are ancient and obscure, images of greyhound-like dogs are depicted on pottery, ornamentation, tomb paintings, and weaponry articles that are over four thousand years old.

The breed as we know  it today developed in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth because of the her enthusiasm for coursing.  Coursing is the hunting of live game by chase, rather than by scent.


About Greyhounds

Greyhounds are excellent pets!

They are happy, people-oriented, and generally well-behaved and quiet around the house.  Greyhounds get along well with other dogs when properly introduced.

They are fairly tall with long legs and a long tail, so they do take up a lot of room on the couch, if allowed.  Greyhounds have a high center of gravity, so it's wise to keep a close eye when toddlers and Greyhounds are playing together to prevent falls.

A fenced yard is required because they are capable of great speed and if turned loose, they can get very far away in a very short period of time. 

Greyhounds will chase anything that runs, so introduction to other pets must be done patiently and carefully. 

They are protective of their home and because of their size and large teeth, they are a formidable sight.  Weight varies according to sex,  generally females are about 60 to 70 pounds, males about 75 to 85 pounds.  Individuals will vary, of course. 

What are they like to live with?
