Favorite Images of Greyhounds
Animals list created by kathy
A list of my favorite images of greyhounds.
The Greyhound is a breed of dog; a sighthound which has been bred for coursing game and Greyhound racing.
Since the rise in large-scale adoption of retired racing Greyhounds, the breed has seen a resurgence in popularity as a family pet.
According to Merriam-Webster, a Greyhound is "any of a breed of tall slender graceful smooth-coated dogs characterized by swiftness and keen sight", as well as "any of several related dogs," such as the Italian Greyhound.
It is a gentle and intelligent breed whose combination of long, powerful legs, deep chest, flexible spine and slim build allows it to reach average race speeds exceeding 64 kilometres per hour (40 mph).
The Greyhound can reach a full speed of 70 kilometres per hour (43 mph) within 30 metres (98 ft), or six strides from the boxes, travelling at almost 20 metres per second (66 ft/s) for the first 250 metres (820 ft) of a race.
