Isn't there a line of Greyhounds that sport a Mohawk?  Jenny has a little bitty one.

Supposedly it indicates a dog of Irish breeding - probably a particular line, but I don't think I've ever heard of it being identified.  You might check her pedigree for a dog with an "*" after it's name on Greyhound Data.

Indeed, MoMo had a splendid "mohawk"--there is a photo of her the day she was born, sporting little tufts of hair that became her trademark swooping ridge of hair.  I don't recall any particular Irish links in her background, though there may well be.  At least one other litter mate of Mo's had a cute little Mohawk.

Ha!  Just looked at her pedigree and on both sides there are several Irish dogs.

I’m going to check. Jenny’s Mohawk is little-tiny. Cute.  Oh, and she is almost entirely black with a small, white patch on her chest.

Nutmeg had a Mohawk like a short bristle brush on her beautiful dark brindle fur.  About 4 different Irish dogs on her lineage page on Greyhound-Data.

I heard the real reason for that crest is that when the dog was born, God ruffled its fur and said appreciatively, "Oh, that's a good one."

The Mohawk, as well as the ridges of fur on the sides of Greyhounds' necks, serve as reins for the fairies when they ride the dogs.  :)

Bumping this since I have Imark Roman, who is double Gable Dodge (and related to Gino via Lonesome Cry and Fuzzy via KC and All) and has a beautiful neck crest.

My Luke (Alabama Duke) had a neck crest. I still miss that boy. It reminded me of a roached mane. His sire was Australian and those ancestors were unfamiliar to me. On his dam's side I had to look back a little way to find familiar names, Pecos Cannon and further back Westy Whizzer.

palmettobug, at first glance that looked like two different dogs, front half on one & back half of another. Silly eyes playing tricks on me. Had to look again to convince myself it was one dog. 
 

He’s a handsome boy with a greyt hairdo.

Roman's ridge is great!

Lila and Wiki both are out of Gable Dodge lines but no ridges here.
