The two short-haired ones are my Whippets
, smaller cousins of greyhounds. The one on the right is a friend's Silken Windhound (basically a Borzoi/Whippet cross).
They are very trusting and affectionate dogs, mostly couch potatoes with short bursts of high energy (mine sleep 20+ hours a day). They love to curl up in laps or on couches (good luck keeping them off furniture).
They are not the most trainable dogs and generally can't be trusted off-leash because they are sighthounds (bred to hunt by sight). Their natural reaction is to chase small fast-moving objects (like cats, rabbits, squirrels, etc) regardless of whether they are running into traffic or not.
