Nowadays greyhounds are used to practise “the sport” of hunting. There is an absolute lack of survival justification. They are used hardly two years or so, and they are abandonated, torturared, killed and forgotten every hunting season. So, more than ever, it’s time to move on.
The grayhouns or Spanish lebrel can be short, long or hard haired. The long haired barely exists already. Actually, among the History the spanish ajnd the irish greyhoun have been crossbreeed because the first one was faster but less tought.
Right now, it exist a exorbitant and uncrontolled greyhound breeding. Even with the current laws (scants, anyway) very little or nothing is done in order to control and punish those who raise these dogs without control. They do it without sanitary minimum conditions in sheds and feeding with remnants of stale bread just to watch them run and kill hares for a couple of years , without giving the the slightest value neither a hint of affection.
Mostly of the greyhouns are good and calm, and extremely loving. They are playful and very cheerful too. Even with the past they are carrying on, they are kind and they like to be with us. In the other hand, they are usually feaurful and skittish but they have their reasons. In any case, when you reach them, they will never fail you.
