PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion


The Greyhound is the fastest breed of dog and also one of the most ancient breeds. In England, this sighthound was used to hunt all types of game, including deer, stag, fox, and hare. The Greyhound is a loving companion that enjoys the company of family and other dogs. He does best with daily exercise, and his short coat is easy to maintain.
