Greyhounds, if properly socialized early on, are loving, smart, loyal, and courageous animals. They won’t take direction, however, if they think they are of stronger mind than the person giving the orders. They are gentle creatures, but due to their incredible speed and the purpose for which they were initially bred, the Greyhound has a tendency to chase down anything that moves (including squirrels, rabbits, and even cats), although this is a behavior that can be corrected through proper training.
Greyhounds come in many, many colors, such as brown, white, black tan, grey, and any combination of those colors in large spots may be evident. They are said to be either solid colored or piebald. A tan brindle is also very common.
