When you think of greyhounds, most of us think of greyhound racing. The popular, yet controversial sport has dominated the racing scene for many decades.
As a result, there is a lot of misinformation about greyhounds in general.
For starters, most people believe that greyhounds are high energy and that’s likely because the dogs can reach top speeds of 45 mph.
In fact, the opposite is true. Greyhounds have been nicknamed “couch potatoes” due to their relaxed, low-energy temperaments.
Greyhounds are quiet and affectionate – their low energy also makes them the ideal pet for small house or apartments.
And, did you know that greyhounds are the only breed of dog mentioned in the bible?
