History of the breed

the   Hungarian Greyhound   is a dog with very ancient origins. This breed was developed by the ancestors of the Hungarians , the Magyars, who made it their preferred hunting dog . To optimize its qualities, especially in terms of speed, race benefited from inputs from other varieties during the 19th century. The Hungarian Greyhound breed was definitively recognized by the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) on March 29, 1963. Its official FCI standard in force was published on April 6, 2000.
