Physically, the speed of a dog varies depending on the overall build such as: 1. The deepness and narrowness of the chest (stamina) 2. The muscularity of the legs and neck (snapping and running ability) 3. Stocky or slimness (drag) 4. Angles of legs and hocks (running ability) 5. Height of hocks (running ability) 6. Size and proportion (speed and running ability) 7. Length of the legs (running ability and speed) 8. Flexibility (running ability) and more. Observe the lithe bodies of sighthounds, the fastest breeds.
