Description

The greyhound is a native canine race from Spain. That’s why it is also known as Spanish greyhound. It is a thin dog, with large paws and voluminous chest, so it can reach high velocities. The cross height is often of 62-70 cm in males and 60-68 cm in females. Tipically, it has short, straight, thin fur. However, it exists also a variety of heavy, rough fur, homogenously extended thorugh all its body, with beard, whiskers and toupeé. The most typical colours are striped, black, brown, cinnamon, yelllow, red and white. An especific sort of hunting dog with ancient origins is called hound. Different races exist nowadays widely in the Mediterranean: it is believed that the origin of these modern races is in the ancient Egypt (concretely the Tesem race) and these dogs were spreaded through the mediterranean coasts by the Fenician. Its aspect lightly reminds the image of the Egyptian god Anubis.
