Greyhounds, or “borzoi” as they call them in Russia, are natural-born hunting machines. They are hella fast, agile, and very playful if you got to know them well. Their main characteristic is, of course, their zoomies. Thanks to their freakishly long and slender legs, they are capable of developing speeds of up to 60 km/h in a matter of seconds!
Usually, people don’t keep greyhounds in apartments, as these babies need their freedom to run and hunt in parks or nearby woods. They’re built for chasing the target in the open, thanks to the elongated shape of the head, which provides wide-angle vision. Greyhounds are used for hunting small animals like the aforementioned squirrels, foxes, and sometimes even wolves.
