These dogs have the appearance of an athlete as well as a giant of the dog world. Their shaggy coat long legs differentiate from the smaller Greyhound and they have a majestic air to their stance.
The Deerhound's diet should be monitored as they tend to have rapid periods of growth as a puppy. It will be best to get advice from a breeder to make sure you are feeding your dog the right amount of food. The Deerhound is a big dog and needs a fair amount of fuel so twice daily feeds with good nutrition are important to maintain their size and activity levels.
The wiry coat of the Deerhound is pretty low maintenance, but it will need regular grooming at least once a week. The coat may need to be hand plucked once or twice a year depending on its condition, if you are unsure of how to do this make sure you take your dog to a breeder.
