The Rampur Greyhound is a large breed of dog that originated in India. It is a sighthound, meaning it uses its sight to hunt rather than its sense of smell. The Rampur Greyhound has a long and slender body with a deep chest and strong legs. Its head is long and narrow with small ears that are set high on the head. The eyes are almond-shaped and dark in color. The coat of the Rampur Greyhound is short, smooth, and glossy in texture. It comes in various colors such as black, white, fawn, brindle, or tan with white markings on the chest and feet.

The lifespan of the Rampur Greyhound is between 10 to 12 years when properly cared for. They typically weigh between 40 to 60 pounds (18 to 27 kg) and stand at an average height of 24 to 28 inches (61 to 71 cm).

The personality of the Rampur Greyhound is gentle yet alert; they are loyal companions who love spending time with their owners but can also be independent thinkers when given the chance. They have an even temperament which makes them great family pets as they get along well with children as well as other animals such as cats or other dogs if introduced properly from an early age.

Rampur Greyhounds are friendly towards people but may be wary around strangers until they get used to them; however, they will still bark if someone unfamiliar approaches their home or family members so make sure you socialize your pup from an early age so it can learn how to interact appropriately with others outside its immediate family circle.

The temperament of the Rampur Greyhound is generally calm but active; they need regular exercise such as daily walks or runs in order for them to stay healthy both physically and mentally so make sure you provide plenty of opportunities for your pup to burn off some energy!

When it comes to health issues, this breed tends not be prone any major health problems although some may suffer from hip dysplasia or eye problems due to their long faces which can cause dry eyes if not taken care off properly by their owners; regular check-ups at your vet should help keep these issues under control though!

In terms of adaptability level, this breed does quite well living indoors provided that it gets enough exercise outdoors too; however due its size it may not be suitable for those living in apartments unless you have access outdoor space where your pup can run around freely without disturbing anyone else!

Overall owning a Rampur Greyhound can be very rewarding experience since these dogs make great companions who will always show loyalty towards their owners while being gentle enough around children making them ideal pets for families looking for a loving pet that won’t take up too much space indoors!


The Rampur Greyhound is a breed of dog that was once popular in India, but is now on the brink of extinction. The breed is thought to be descended from the ancient Pariah dogs of India, and was used for hunting by the Maharajas of Rampur. The Rampur Greyhound was almost wiped out during the Partition of India in 1947, when many of the Maharajas fled to Pakistan with their dogs. However, a few Rampur Greyhounds were left behind in India, and they were eventually rescued by an Englishwoman named Mrs. Gertrude Lytham. Mrs. Lytham bred the remaining Rampur Greyhounds and eventually managed to revive the breed. Today, there are only a handful of Rampur Greyhounds left in the world, but thanks to Mrs. Lytham's efforts, the breed is slowly making a comeback.
