What is the only dog breed specifically mentioned in the bible?

In an earlier blog article of mine I listed 384 dog breeds, many of which have become extinct. Through detailed discussions about dog breeds, I became interested in knowing about the good and bad sides of dogs and the past history of dogs living with humans.

From the Afador dog to the Yorkshire Terrier dog breed, each dog has its own unique characteristics and the dog’s affinity with humans has made the dog a unique animal.

In this blog I begin to discuss in detail about the only dog ​​breed mentioned in the holy religious book Bible.

Dog breed mentioned in the Bible

A dog breed mentioned in the Bible is the “greyhound” in Proverbs 30:29-31: There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going. A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any. A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up.”

Greyhound dog breed

The Greyhound dog is a sighthound which has been bred for coursing, racing and hunting. Since the rise in large-scale adoption of retired racing Greyhounds, the breed has seen a resurgence in popularity as a family pet dog.

The gentle Greyhound is intelligent with a quiet disposition, and in spite of its great athletic ability, is content to spend most of the day sleeping. Greyhounds are one of the best natured breeds.

Temperament: Intelligent, affectionate, athletic, quiet and gentle.

Height: Male: 71–76 cm, Female: 68–71 cm.

Weight: 27 – 40 kg.

Lifespan: 10 – 14 years.
