Greyhounds are one of the oldest breeds of dog in history and can be traced back over 4,000 years. They appear in both Greek and Roman mythology and are even mentioned in the Bible.


  • Group: Hound
  • Size: Large
  • Height: Male - 71-76cm, Female - 69-71cm
  • Weight: Male - 27-40Kg, Female - 26-34Kg
  • Average Retirement Age: Between 3 - 5 years of age however, 35% of retirements are unfortunately due to injury.
  • Average Lifespan: Up to 15 years
  • Moulting Level: Medium
  • Grooming: Light
  • Exercise Required: Although Greyhounds have been bred for speed, they actually have low exercise demands and use up their energy in short bursts.
  • Temperament: Intelligent, gentle, affectionate, mostly calm and even tempered. 



Because of their calm nature, Greyhounds are generally great with children, the elderly and disabled people. As they do not require large amounts of exercise and prefer lounging around at home, they make great companions.

They are sighthounds and have a strong chase drive, so great care should be given around cats and smaller animals. However, with the help of a qualified, reward-based trainer, many can overcome this and happily co-exist with smaller animals.

It is always advisable to ensure that you accept guidance from the Rehoming Centre as to the individual dog’s personality traits.

Many rehomed Greyhounds go on to make great Blood Donors due to their size and temperament, and therapy dogs due to their fantastic nature.

In training, Greyhounds are generally fed a very high protein diet to help strengthen and develop muscles. When retired, they lose this requirement and if you continue to feed a ‘racing’ diet, it could lead to unnecessary weight gain.

Another thing to be aware of is that because of their height, they make great counter surfers! With training, they can learn not to steal food but always ensure you keep items out of ‘nose’ and ‘paw’ reach, especially if they can cause harm to your Greyhound.
