The Greyhound is one the oldest breeds of dogs dating back well before the time of Cleopatra. More recent owners included President Rutherford B. Hayes and General George A. Custer. This tall lean dog is the fastest of all the dog breeds and can be any color or combination of colors. The Greyhound is a sight hound, meaning they follow what they are chasing using sight, while they do have a sense of smell, they are not prone to use it as other breeds do. The Greyhound loves being with their family, in fact, inside a home they are more like a deer than a dog, very graceful and gentle. They also love being couch potatoes but should be exercised daily in a fenced yard or on a leash, remembering, should they bolt after a rabbit, once out of sight, they most likely will need to see you before they can find their way home. The AKC recognized this breed in 1885 in the Hound Group. They range in size from 60 to 70 pounds.
