The Greyhound Personality….
The greyhound has a very gentle and quiet disposition. As it was necessary for the greyhound to hunt and run in groups, aggressiveness toward other dogs has almost been completely eliminated from the breed. The dog does have a strong prey drive, however, and may not be suitable for homes with small pets such as rabbits.
The greyhound is often tolerant of children and, being non-aggressive, will usually walk away from annoyance rather than snap or growl. In spite of his great athletic ability, the greyhound is quite happy to spend most of the day sleeping. The greyhound does not have a lot of endurance and actually requires less exercise time than most dogs.
The greyhound has a short and smooth coat, which is easy to maintain. The coat comes in a wide variety of colors including white, fawn, red, gray and brindle. The greyhound has virtually no body fat, and owners must be certain to provide the dog with soft places to rest and sleep.
