Do you love dogs? What is your favorite breed? A pug? A poodle? A labrador? Or maybe a beagle? And what about greyhounds? Have you ever seen one of these fastest things on four legs?
The Greyhounds are not only one of the fastest but also one of the oldest dogs on the planet. They were first mentioned in Egyptian carvings. Since then the greyhounds have been known as the dogs which are bred to race. But only a few know how gentle and loyalty these animals are. As any other breed greyhound is born to be a crucial part of someone’s family. It is a massive misconception to think that greyhounds are aggressive because of their nature to compete and race. In reality, they are great companions not only for people but also for other animals. They feel comfortable living under the roof with smaller dogs and even cats. These delicately framed and sophisticated dogs are extremely smart and sweet, which make them a perfect family member and a friend of the children.
There are a lot of books you can read to learn about greyhounds more. But there is one special book which is going to blow you away – «Fast Friends Forever: A Tribute to Greyhounds in Words and Pictures» by John Irvine.
