:shock: okay the 50.5 mph by the greyhound is impressive...
Can any other breed get even close to that fast???
Wow!

;) Straight with a racer in his prime would be amazing!
Does any other breed have a shot at reaching the 50mph mark?

It's possible I think. Part of the reason for starting "World's Fastest Dogs" was that there isn't any real data or stats on the maximum speed of dogs. All the data out there is average speed over a given distance and that is generally only available for greyhounds so there really isn't any information for other breeds, except for perhaps whippet, but again, that is only average over a distance.

I'd put it out there that the estimated top speed for most breeds is underestimated. I think for example that we'll see a top speed for whippets of around 70kph (43mph) or more which is higher than the accepted maximum.
