Greyhounds are among the oldest breed of dog, dating back to ancient Egypt where they were prized for their speed, beauty, and gentle nature. During the Middle Ages, their bloodline was preserved by the Celts who bred the elegant sighthounds for hunting. Greyhounds can been seen repeatedly in artwork from these two cultures, and they are also mentioned in ancient literature, such at the Bible and Homer’s, ‘The Oddesy.’ The modern Greyhound is the second fastest land animal and can run at speeds up to 45 miles an hour.

Pit bulls are commonly mistaken as aggressive dogs but studies show that they won’t bite as long as they’re not under pressure or they’re not trained aggressively. People say they are not good with children, but those are just rumors. Pit Bulls are often good with children, if they are properly trained, and they are sometimes called the “nanny dog.”
