GREYHOUNDS ORIGINATED IN ANCIENT EGYPT
The greyhound is one of the most ancient breeds. Unlike many other old breeds, their roots can be traced to different countries on all of the continents. However, the earliest evidence is from Egypt, where carvings dating back to 2900 B.C.E. clearly depict greyhound-like dogs.
