Greyhound Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA:
Breed Group: Hound Group Height Male: 27-28 inches (68-71cm.)
Breed Size: Large Height Female: 28-30 inches (71-76cm.)
Breed Origin: Egypt Weight: 50-80 pounds (24-36kg.)
Appearance
The Greyhound's coat is short and fine with no undercoat; therefore, minimal grooming is required. Greyhounds typically have a short racing career, and since their lifespan is between 12 to 15 years, there are almost always adult dogs looking for adoption into loving homes.
 

Temperament
As the fastest breed of dog, a Greyhound can reach a top speed of 45 miles per hour, and can average more than 30 miles per hour for distances up to one mile.

When not racing, the Greyhound is quiet, gentle and docile. He can be somewhat aloof toward strangers but, generally, he is friendly to most people. He thrives on human companionship and attention, and is affectionate to those he knows, making him a wonderful family companion. He is very intelligent and adaptable, and can usually make a life changing adjustment from racing kennel to loving home with relative ease.

 
History
The Greyhound is among the oldest of the purebred dog breeds, dating back to the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Originally, Greyhounds were the companions and hunting dogs of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, and the Midieval European aristocracy. The Greyhound is a Sighthound or Gazehound - one that hunts by sight rather than scent.
 
Health
The lifespan of the Greyhound is around 9-14 years, and there are a number of health problems that have been associated with this breed. Some of the health issues to look out for include thyroid problems, bloat, PRA, digestive problems, bleeding disorders, and allergies to drugs and chemicals. The parents of the Greyhound puppy should have CERF certificates.
