What kind of dog is a Lab and Greyhound mix?

A lab greyhound mix is a dog that has the coat of a lab combined with the sleek, lean body of a greyhound. These dogs have long backs and long tails. They tend to learn tricks and basic obedience with the eagerness of a labrador but they have the much quieter temperament of a greyhound. Like a greyhound, they frequently have quick short bursts of energy during the day when they want to run at top speed for a good five minutes before they tire themselves out, but unlike a greyhound they, are great off-leash dogs and will come when called. The same can be said for when they're in the presence of little fuzzy animals such as a squirrel or a small fluffy dog. Though lab/greyhound mixes will exhibit strong sight hound instincts, they miraculously can be called back whilst in the middle of a chase. This is fortunate as they are extremely fast.

Although they have webbed toes, lab/greyhounds tend not to like water as they do not have the body fat needed to float very well and find the water cold.


They they tend to be incredibly sweet dogs that for the most part are content to just lie around for a good portion of the day.

What is the average lifespan of a Greyhound dog?

Usually 9 to 11 years. They make excellent house pets and are GREAT with children of any age despite their size and speed.

Actually, the average life expectancy of a racing greyhound according to greyhound friends for life (the racing adoption agency) is 12 -15 years. This is quite a larger number than the one above.

How fast are Italian greyhounds?

Iggys definitely look like they're as fast as a car, but their top recorded running speed is much closer to 30. Greyhounds will go about 40 and a thoroughbred horse will run 45. I also have one, and he's practically a blur when he gets moving. Part of that is the fact that you're watching them run against the grass.

What would make a 2002 silverado 43v6 misfire lose power and then smooth out and run fine till the next time?

Could be oxygen sensors (located in the exhaust manifolds), water in gas, stopped up injectors, loose air hoses. Does it happen when its cold, hot, turning, been idleing for a while, in traffic, or going down the interstate? need more info.

My 4.3 ran like this for a while then it began dying randomly and would not restart for 15 minutes or longer, turned out to be the ignition module (a.k.a. "the black bannana") it's inside the distributor, this won't be the case for you if you have C.O.P (Coil Over Plug) or H.E.I. (High Energy Ignition) mines 8 years older than yours I don't know what your engine runs.

Is an Italian Greyhound a good companion for another small dog for example a Boston Terrier?

Any breed of dog can be a good companion to another dog. However Greyhounds are used for running and they love it, so if your dog is into running I suggest you get another Greyhound. If your Greyhound is just a pet then even a small dog or cat would be a good companion. I always own two dogs to keep each other company. I have a white Bichon Frise female and a male Cockapoo 16 months old. They play all the time or just sleep together and I also have a 10 year old cat that thinks she's a dog and has fun with the dogs. They even sleep together!
