Greek Harehound: Origins and history

The Greek Harehound’s ancestors date back to thousands of years ago. His heritage dates back to the ancient “Laconikoi” canines of the Peloponnese. This dog has hardly changed in appearance or demeanour through the years. This is probably because there was no competition from other breeds in the mountainous regions of Greece. The bloodline has therefore remained true to his ancestry.
