Introduction

Greek Hounds, also referred to a Greek Harehounds or Hellenic Hounds, were developed in ancient Greece to hunt hare and other small game in the region, and are one of only a handful of breeds that were developed in Greece. When hunting, the Greek Hound is a fearless and hard-working animal who is very enthusiastic about the part that they play in the activity, but at home, they make friendly and playful family companions. Like most hound breeds they are known to be very vocal canines, an asset for hunting dogs in the field, and they tend to be independent.
