The head is long and narrow and held high. Eyes are almond shaped and dark in colour. Ears are feathered and carried flat on head. Nose is black and neck is long, strong and arched. It has a deep chest with spring in ribs. Back is straight and level from shoulders to the loin. Forelegs are strong and straight while hind legs are angulated. Moderate size feet are feathered generously as is its slightly curled tail. The body structure helps the dog attain a swift and agile disposition.

PERSONALITY
The Banjara Greyhound is said to have speed of a Greyhound and stamina of a Collie. This working breed is a multi-utility dog providing skills such as hunting, guarding and even flock controlling. High spirited and very energetic, the dog is said to have originated by crossing of the Saluki with local Indian dogs. This dog has been an integral part of the Indian tribes, working as hunter, guardian and flock control dog for them. Despite its hunting nature, the dog has a relaxed and amiable temperament when not working. The Banjara Greyhound is a sighthound and is fast and strong. The dog is good with children as well as with other dogs. It does require socialization and obedience training.

CARE
The coat is low maintenance with once a week brushing being sufficient.

TRAINING
This dog needs a firm and confident trainer who can establish himself as dog's packleader. This working dog is used to working independently and may not suit a weak or feeble trainer or owner.

ACTIVITY
Highly energetic and free spirited, the Banjara Greyhound is a working dog and does need lots of exercise if it is not working. The dog would need large open space to run and play.
