There is no denying that Greyhounds love to run, and they are quite good at it. But despite their insane speed, sometimes Greyhounds would rather plop themselves on your lap than sprint around the yard. These sweet, even-tempered canines may be large, but they are lithe and delicate dogs, weighing in at an average of 65 pounds.
