Greyhound Description
  The Greyhound is a sleek, contoured dog that is built for speed with a very deep chest and an extraordinarily flexible, curved spine. It has a long head with almost no stop and the muzzle tapers. The skull is wide between the ears and the small rose of the ears is folded back. Its eyes are dark. It has a long and graceful neck and its front legs are very straight. The hindquarters are muscular and very powerful with an arched loin. It has a long tail that is carried low with a slight upward curve at the end. Its coat is smooth and short.
