Greyhounds aren’t just a nationwide bus system you know, though the bus line did take as their mascot and logo, this very dog. Having ridden on a Greyhound bus before, we can tell you with no uncertainty that they should maybe have taken the turtle as their logo. We were nine hours late this one time. But we digress.
Douglas Toy brings the wiry grace, speed and agility of the greyhound to life in their Classics collection with this 13-inch long greyhound.
Greys are sighthounds, which was important in their old profession, as companions to hunters. They tracked prey by sight and sped along swiftly to chase it down and keep it cornered until the dogs’ slow human masters could come up behind. A greyhound at their peak can reach up to 39 miles per hour/63 kilometers per hour. Few dogs can boast that ability. Deep chests, slim builds and flexible spines keep them supple and swift. But in addition to being a four-legged version of The Flash, these canines make sweet and loving companions and family pets.
Douglas’ captures the charm and docile nature like few other toy makers could. Just look at that soft coat, that slim profile. This stuffed Greyhound begs to run and play with you, but is just as comfortable sitting at home, snuggled up on the couch. Unlike some breeds, he doesn’t have boundless energy. His strength comes in his speed, not his endurance. But that doesn’t mean he won’t love you forever if you give him snuggles and a treat now and again.
