They are still used for racing today, and they are known for their speed and endurance. However, greyhounds are not typically aggressive dogs, and they tend to be very calm and easy-going in nature.

In addition to being great pets, greyhounds are also used as therapy dogs and in search and rescue operations. They are highly adaptable and can thrive in a variety of environments, as long as they receive the exercise and attention they need.

Overall, greyhounds are intelligent, athletic, and affectionate dogs that make great companions for people who are willing to provide them with the exercise and attention they need.
