Everything You Need to Know about Greyhounds

When it comes to greyhounds, there are a lot of fascinating facts about the docile pups that the general public don’t know about Greyhounds. For example, contrary to popular belief greyhounds are not high energy dogs. Their quick bursts of energy are not to be mistaken with a lively temperament. In fact, greyhounds are often called couch potatoes due to their relaxed nature. Greyhounds can actually reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour, making them one of the fastest dog breeds in the world.
