4 of 10


Affectionately referred to as the "40 mph couch potato," the sleek Greyhound can keep up with even the fastest kids on the school track team. She's a great choice for families looking to adopt a canine, as there are plenty of ex-racing Greyhounds looking for homes. Once she meets her surprisingly low exercise quota, she's content to lounge on the couch with you for the rest of the day. Greyhounds typically weigh 50 to 70 pounds, and sometimes even more, but their gentle demeanor makes them a quiet presence in the home.
