Greyhounds

Retired Racers

Nursenomo and Huricane (sic) Jackson

Not like other dogs

They have slower heart rates, higher red blood cell counts, lower thyroid hormone levels, larger hearts, serious sensitivities to anesthesia, and persistent hookworms (boo).

They look more like tiny ponies with their long, skinny legs.

Maximum speed = 45 mph. They love to run, but they like to rest, too.
