Fastest dog on earth

Greyhounds are known as "40mph (64 km/h) couch potatoes" because their ability to fly is matched only by their ability to snooze!
Browse pedigrees and photos, analyse health and pedigrees, and contribute information to the archive.
This is a remarkable tool, invaluable for all those of us who are fascinated by different breeds of dogs, for research into the past as well as for planning the future.
