Greyhound overview

Evidence of greyhounds dates back to ancient times; Egyptian carvings support this point. Greyhounds are built for speed (originally to course game), with elegant grace.

An even temperament, makes them a marvellous companion. Show dogs tend to be larger than the racing version.

Having performed their "duty" on the track the racing greyhounds are often unwanted and disposed of. So once the companion of kings, now an unwanted outcast. See details below for Greyhound rescue centers.
