You may know that greyhound dogs are the fastest breed of dog reaching speeds up to 45 mph, but did you know that greyhound dogs are also considered couch potatoes? That's right, while greyhound dogs are known for their speed, they're not known for their endurance and are quite happy to get in a few runs a week and take it easy in between. Source: Greyhounds
Why Greyhound Dogs Need Our Help
Thousands of greyhound dogs are killed every year when they are no longer able to race. Even when they are racing many are not treated well spending most of their time in small kennels and muzzled.
