Greyhounds are the racehorses of the canine world, incredibly fast and aristocratic, graceful and elegant. Generously proportioned and upstanding, these dogs are symmetrical and strongly-built. With their long, straight forelegs, they cover the ground in low, free strides at great speed, being propelled by muscular hindlegs which come well under their bodies.
Greyhounds come in a wide variety of colors, the most popular being red and white, red and black, fawn, brindle, blue, black and white, and black and tan, the last as a combined black and white/red or red and tan combination being the most prized of them all. With a face that is loving and affectionate, and their gentle mouth, tone of voice and overall aura of tolerance give them the best of their breed.
They are gentle, loving, patient, loyal, kind and non-aggressive dogs who will be entirely unflappable in the face of even the most daunting odds.

Greyhounds are pack dogs by nature, so strong is their desire to stay together in a pack, most often under the strict discipline of a single dog, or a female alpha. They are very social dogs and are not happy when alone, choosing to be with the family as much as possible.
