Males have the potential to reach almost three feet tall and 180 pounds, with females not far behind. This makes them huge for a sighthound. Their size and shape—which is characteristic of a Greyhound—is commandeering. This can sometimes make them seem intimidating, particularly combined with the rough, wiry coat.
