Greyhound Dog Breed Information

The greyhound - or the English Greyhound - is a breed known for its temperament and good nature. These quiet, beautiful dogs rank just inside the Top 100 UK dog breeds.


The greyhound tends to cost in the region of £300 (less for a non-KC registered variety), so if you see greyhound puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind.


A greyhound is expected to live between 9-11 years on average, is usually around 68-76cm in height and generally weighs in at between 27-40kg.


Greyhounds are very easy to train with an average intelligence, are ideal for children and require an awful lot of exercise to stay satisfied. They can tolerate being alone for short periods of time.


Here at Hoobynoo, the greyhound is one of our most popular requests for dog tags. Our personalised dog id tags featuring greyhounds entered our Top 50 for the first time in 2018. Our vast selection of greyhound accessories can be found HERE.
