    A tier animals
    Perfect family dogs, very sociable, fun to take for a daily walk, otherwise lazy as sin, the mongrels are especially healty and robust. S++ tier when bred with smarter dogs.
    I've only ever owned Lurchers, specifically Collie-Greyhound Mixes, the first was a rescue b***h my family got before I was born, watched over us as kids when we played outside and fiercely independant, when we let her whelp a litter everyone was asking for a puppy because of how good she was; she lived to 16 before lukemia and dementia got her, we regret making her hang on so long though. Second we got about 3 months later, from a farmer who breeds this specific mix as sheep dogs, because they're fast and have a head on their shoulders too, this litter had a decent pedigree, the mother being an ex-champ from the local dog track he bought for the purpose of breeding. My boy and his litter mates were however, little shits, that broke into the chicken coop the day before we bought him. He was alot more skittish and needy, but thats the norm with Lurchers.
    Generally if you want one get two so they don't get too lonely if nobody is home all day, like other anons say they eat a high protien diet and can be quite greasy unless washed regularly, or thrown in a stream once a week when walked, they can and will eat anything though: bread, meat, potatoes, orange peels, eggs(do not have to be cooked), pastries and your whole meal if left unattended so be careful with what they can access. Like I've said I've only had mongrels so the inbreeding is limited but I find that these dogs are very healthy and long lived but towards the end everything shuts down completely, fricking heart breaking. I'm looking to get another one or two depending on circumstances later in the year. Picrel is my late boy

    I grew up with greyhounds my whole life, they're easy dogs to live with, but very boring. Their short coat sheds all year long, they are smelly gassy animals, they have very sensitive stomachs, they aren't very smart, you can't teach them to do much, very bad separation anxiety, can't take them off leash or they'll run off and not be able to find their way back. As far as taking care of them it's very easy, just need to take them outside to go potty, an a quick run is all they want.

    By contrast I got myself a gsd, and was blown away by how fast she learns, even if it's not something I've intended to teach her, she figures out what certain words or fraises mean on her own, like "who's there" she'll start looking outside to see if there's anything out there. But the work and care I have needed to do is way more than a greyhound requires, but it's more rewarding.

      The only thing I agree with this post is the coat, them being easy and having seperation anxiety as someone who has also been raised with greyhounds and whippets. Everything else I have had the inverse experience with, particulary their eating and training. The frickers will eat anything and get pot bellied if you are not carefull. You can also train them to do recall so when they are off leash in a field, racing past you in a figure of 8 you can get them to stop.

      However I will say I am not surprised about you being blown away by GSDs. They are entirely a different beast of dog and are loved by law enforcement for a reason. If I could I would getting one at the moment.

      Very nice sum up
      I'm lucky and mine isn't as prey driven and just ignored small dogs and cats.
      And the gasey thing is true sadely, high protein diet so I guess it's just part of it but it's not everyday like once a week I notice it.
      And the stupid thing makes sense, I thought it just my one as all my friends who larger size dogs seem smarter

        They get lonely, usually rescues are used to being crammed in with a dozen or more other greyhounds
        I've had two sets of two, each time getting the second because the first got seperation anxiety just from me zipping to the store and back

          Can you confirm whether or not they are stupid?

            Not brick stupid, my second could figure out how to unlatch a baby-proof gate, but I think a lot of other big dog breeds are smarter.

            I'd say they're average, you can train them to do standard doggy stuff, but don't expect Border Collie-tier tricks
            Main issue is that they get easily distracted by things moving, so if you're training one in a park and they see a squirrel, they will lose all focus and stare at it

      Cheap, healthy and low maintenance. One of my favorite breeds if you can even call them a breed with how mixed up their lineages are. Whippets are the same but smaller in size.

      They are not stupid, certainly more intelligent compared to something like a husky or bulldog atleast (which to be fair is kinda a low bar).

      They get lonely, usually rescues are used to being crammed in with a dozen or more other greyhounds
      I've had two sets of two, each time getting the second because the first got seperation anxiety just from me zipping to the store and back

      This is more so with rescues or former racing hounds. If you can get them as puppies they are like most standard dog breeds regarding anxiety levels.

        Longer lived, cheaper and easier to care for due their smaller size. Other than that they are almost exactly the same.
