Everyone is aware of the speed of Greyhounds. In a word: quickly. After all, for many years, these dogs were specifically bred to compete in races.
It's no surprise that the Saluki is the world's second-fastest dog breed. The Saluki's athletic build is obvious at first look.
The Vizsla is the third-fastest dog breed and can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour while running, matching the Afghan Hound.
Afghan Hounds are one of the oldest breeds of dog and are just as fast as the more modern Vizsla.
According to Spoiled Hounds, Ibizan Hounds, which are also hounds, have been around since 3400 BC after being transferred to Egypt in the seventh century.
The AKC classifies the Whippet with the aforementioned breeds as fellow members of the sighthound family due to the dog's "lightning fast" speed.
A dog's speed is essential for subterranean hunting since the prey is always on the move.
