For centuries, the elegance and beauty of greyhounds has been immortalised in paintings where they stand proudly at the sides of kings and dukes as symbols of nobility and grace. Their agility and strength has seen them compared to Roman gods, and their history as trusted companions to humans dates back thousands of years.
These dogs are innately sensitive, affectionate and gentle – making them perfect additions to any family. And yet most of the thousands bred every year in Australia will never know the joys of human companionship.
Greyhounds are born companions. In their capacity to love, to suffer, to play, and to enrich the lives of those around them, a greyhound is no different to any other dog. They will relish in an ear-scratch or a tummy rub, play with toys, sleep on your couch/bed/lap at any given opportunity — and they will make you feel like you’re the most important person in the entire world, if you let them. Greyhounds are devoted, loyal, playful, sociable and affectionate – because, quite simply, greyhounds are dogs.
