The Fast Facts

What about their coat?

Greyhounds have a very fine, soft coat. Because of this, and their low body fat, they tend to feel extremes in temperature (both heat and cold) more than most dogs. So on cold winter nights your Greyhound will probably try to share your electric blanket or snuggle underneath your doona! Greyhounds come in a vast array of coat colours: black, white, red, blue, fawn, brindle, or any of these colours broken with white. Despite their name, grey (or blue as it is known) is not a very common colour in the breed.
