In many ways, Greyhounds are the perfect dog.

During our racing days, we come into constant contact with other dogs and trainers, making us friendly, social and non-aggressive. We're quiet, calm, intelligent and affectionate, and we love human companionship. You'll also be pleased to find that we have little-to-no doggy odour and are often good choices for people with allergies because of our low dander levels.
