Comparison Galgo vs. Greyhound


Recommended Posts

Not over here. They use them in North Africa to cross with Saluki types and in South America crossed with greyhounds and collies/cur dogs.

That’s a shame, I am eyeing a kelpie x greyhound and would not mind some galgo in the mix. I would hope such a cross could hold a fairly high pace for quite some time and at the same time be heat resistant. You gotta plan for the climate change future. 😀 

But it sounds like that’s not going to happen. 🤣 To exotic probably.

They are sensitive but biddable and trainable, I find them easy to live with, I'd put them somewhere between a greyhound and a saluki temperament wise. They have high prey drive and will run themselve

You could go for your name sake, i know a breeder in Europe that has puppies that would export, closely related to English greyhounds but still a little more coursing orientated physically.

Is this particular breeder using them for hunting? The Magyar Agars I know of are at best bred for racing at worst as show dogs…

They run hares with them, not sure how much they do but they do some.

Sandy, do you remember about 2 years ago, a girl posting about the borzaya hortaya, like a borzoi but smooth coated and not as tall?

I went on you tube and watched several of those dogs, and similar 'types' coursing and catching european brown hares.  Certainly looked a robust type with enough speed and stamina for proper hare coursing.

Yes there's a few types coursing in Eastern Europe.
