short but good AKC article


Recommended Posts



My American hounds (Nixon, Ruby, Nigel) are naturally leaner than Irish born Sid. He is broader all over and not as aerodynamic.

And now we have Spanish Kibo ... Probably a Galgo/Greyhound mix...who's body structure is different again. And BoyHowdy..is he ever fast!

You know, I noticed that with Gino, his sire is Irish. Johnny was very long and lean, very sinuous, tall and muscular. Gino is a little chunkier, not quite as defined. Fuzzy is, of course, very fine boned and lean, but tall as Gino at the head when they both stare out the window.

Good article.

I think most people's dogs are overweight!  But since I have one that weighs 92 lbs I don't have much room to talk!   Lilly - who had two Irish parents - is bigger, taller, broader, and naturally carries more weight than US bred dogs.  Even ones who weigh as much as she does are usually more aerodynamic.
