The Greyhound is a breed of sighthound that has been primarily bred for coursing game and racing, and the breed has also recently seen a resurgence in its popularity as a pedigree show

dog and family pet. A combination of long, powerful legs, deep chest, flexible spine, and slim build allows it to reach average race speeds in excess of 18 metres per second (59 feet per second) or 63 kilometres per hour (39 mph).. At maximum acceleration, a greyhound reaches a full speed of 70 kilometres per hour (43 mph) within 30 metres or six strides from the boxes, traveling at almost 20 metres per second for the first 250 metres of a race. The only other animal that can accelerate faster over a short distance is the cheetah, which can reach speeds of 109 kilometres per hour (68 mph) over 3-4 strides from a standing start. Description
Appearance
Males are usually 71 to 76 centimetres (28 to 30 in) tall at the withers and weigh around 27 to 40 kilograms (60 to 88 lb). Females tend to be smaller with shoulder heights ranging from 68 to 71 centimetres (27 to 28 in) and weights from less than 27 to 34 kilograms (60 to 75 lb). There are approximately thirty recognized color forms, of which variations of white, brindle, fawn, black, red and blue (gray) can appear uniquely or in combination. Anatomy
The key to the speed of a Greyhound can be found in its light but muscular build, largest heart, and highest percentage of fast-twitch muscle of any breed, the double suspension gallop and the extreme flexibility of the spine. "Double suspension rotary gallop" describes the fastest running gait of the Greyhound in which all four feet are free from the ground in two phases, contracted and extended, during each full stride.

Mickey is 4yrs old and will be the perfect boy for anyone. He’s so gentle and calm but can be a little shy when meeting new people. After a few days being with me his shyness was gone, so I know he will come around quickly but will need a home with children older than 12yrs just to give him time to settle in. He’s great on the lead and walked by all breeds showing no interest. He really is a sweet gentle boy

Older girl missy is 6yrs old, she’s a happy playful girl who just loves exploring. Walked by all breeds on her walk but can be alert when one running off lead but she’s easily controlled and walks on with little encouragement.

Please keep on sharing this gorgeous girl ..Someone will be sooo lucky to get her .. The reason we ask that we need someone in the Vicinity or surrounding areas is to get to our vets if needed .There are 2 practices one in Antrim and one in Ballymena .It’s more to pick up her meds as she is doing really well at the minute . Nova is in Belfast but would need potential adopters to have a few meets with her . PLEASE SHARE this beautiful loving girl ..I feel so sad for her but she really needs a home of her own I cannot keep her as I’m on constant watch incase there is any food or toys about .Otherwise she is great with my dogs .

🙏🙏🙏🙏 SPECIAL APPEAL 🙏🙏🙏🙏

😍😍Can we find Nova a home in time for Christmas 🥰🥰Nova has been with us since February 2022 so nearly 2 years ..

Nova is such an easy greyhound to have around .Loves her walks but also likes to laze about in any comfy spot she can find .She gets along will all my 8 Greyhounds as long as there is no food About or Squeaky toys 😂😂🙈.She walks fantastic on her lead even a toddler could walk her (but watch out for the squirrels 🐿️)
Ideally we would like to find her a home where she is the only dog and with someone who is home most of the day as she does suffer with separation anxiety .She would lie quite happily out in the car while you do your shopping she loved the van 😂😂. She does suffer with IBD and is on prescription food and medication to keep this under control and she is doing well ( The cost of this and any vet bills due to her IBD can be covered by us ) she CANNOT have anything else 🙈🙈🤢🤢
Whoever takes this girl will be very lucky as she has loads of love to give . She would also have to be allowed upstairs to sleep on a dog bed in your room (she never tried to get on the bed ) Ideally living in the Belfast or Antrim area (or surrounding as our vets are in Antrim) Nova is House trained . If living with children they must be able to understand NOT to give her any other type of food . She is a very gentle girl …Not to done BUT once she got hold of one of my dogs bones and I was able to take it out of her mouth .🙈
There will have to be several meet ups with her as she doesn’t just take to anyone she will pick her owner … 🙈😂🙈.Please please SHARE for this beauty … No to cats .. 🙃
