Originally prized for his speed and agility, today's Greyhound is an admirable pet animal, with a gentleness and nobility befitting a dog of ancient lineage. For the proper owners, the Greyhound is a mild-mannered yet athletic companion dog, as affectionate as he is active.

In addition to an extremely authoritative text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full colour, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Greyhound.
