Greyhounds are strongly built, upstanding and of generous proportions, with powerful muscles and a harmonious formation. These are the ultimate racing dogs, built for speed and performance, with long head and neck, clean, oblique shoulders, large, deep chest, arched loins and powerful hindquarters. The suppleness of their limbs emphasizes the distinctive type and quality. As well as being wonderful hunters, Greyhounds are very well suited to life as a companion dog.
