Blink and you’ll miss it! The Greyhound is whip-smart and lightening fast. Really. Seriously fast. This dog can run at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour, making it one of the fastest animals on land. Greyhounds need serious bursts of exercise to scratch that itch. They leave their Michael Schumacher impression at the front door, though, and are known for being placid creatures while indoors. Here’s our run (not quite at 45mph) through the traits of the Greyhound.
Breed Group: Hound
Coat length: Short
