The Polish Greyhound is a large, strong and muscular
dog, whose outline is much more robust and less fine than that
of other shorthaired sighthounds.
In its outline the Polish Greyhound resembles
its ancestor, the Asian Greyhound. Powerful bones, compact body,
prominent musculature and strong jaws; evidence that the dog was
used in the difficult conditions of the Polish climate for hunting
not only hares, foxes, deer and bustards but wolves as well.
Eyes are of paramount importance for the breed;
their expression should be sharp, alert and piercing. Gait must
be fluid and springy; correct angulation of fore and hind legs
allows long, free pace both when walking and trotting. The Polish
Greyhound is even tempered, trusting, reserved and brave. When
in chase, the dog is fast, very agile and relentless; his reactions
are quick and ruthless.
