The Greyhound is also the fastest dog on the planet and can reach speeds upwards of 40-45 miles per hour. They are thought to have originated from Egypt but the current breed of Greyhound was bred in the British Isles. Originally bred with the purpose of hunting hare and badger, they found their true purpose as Greyhound racing continued to rise in popularity. Greyhounds have a sleek, muscular build and a skinny facial structure with a look to please. Greyhounds have unprecedented energy levels but do not need constant exercise. They are sprinters, not pacing animals, so they tire out easily and spend a lot of their time napping. Young Greyhounds do not make great household pets for inexperienced owners because of their drive to hunt and difficulty in training. It is more common for families to adopt senior Greyhounds who have been retired from their racing careers as pets.
