English Greyhound or simply Greyhound, as it is commonly called, is a breed of dogs that hails from the United Kingdom. These dogs are fairly popular in the U.K and a few other European countries, but they are not extremely well-known all around the world as some other breeds are. These dogs have the ability to run at great speeds and because of that, they have proven to be very useful in several dog racing competitions.

In India, the demand for this breed is not very high and its availability in most parts of this country is also fairly mediocre. But these dogs are pretty suitable for most Indians who are looking to be a dog parent. They have a great tolerance to high temperatures and warm weathers; they are extremely adaptable and apartment-friendly in nature and they are fairly easy-going as well. The only thing that can be considered a con while opting for an English Greyhound is their availability and their overall maintenance cost.

Given below is the average price list of the Greyhound puppies which are available in India in various variations.

  • Greyhound Puppy price (Basic): ₹30,000 to ₹45,000
  • Greyhound Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹50,000 to ₹70,000
  • Greyhound Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹75,000 to ₹1,00,000

Factors Affecting the Greyhound dog Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Greyhound price in India. These factors are as follows:

Type

There are three different price categories for a Greyhound dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Greyhound puppy can cost anywhere around ₹30,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

As Greyhounds can be categorized into two different types, a breeder can easily charge more money for any of these types. Two main types of Greyhounds are Show Greyhound and Racing Greyhound and these dogs have slight differences between one another which are based on their physical characteristics.

Also, Greyhounds are available in quite a few different colors (Fawn, Red Brindle etc.) and these different colors can also influence the overall Greyhound price in India.

Age & Gender

Usually, breeders tend to sell male dogs at a higher cost as compared to their female counterparts. Also, age is again a very important factor in determining the overall Greyhound price in India. Generally, as we all know, younger dogs and puppies are sold at a higher price by the breeders as compared to the older or fully grown dogs.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Greyhound is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

If a dog is available at a breeder's place that is near to your home, then its price should be a bit lower than that canine who is available at a faraway location (probably different state). This is because, if someone buys a dog from another region or state, then extra charges like shipping cost or traveling expenses add to the existing price of the dog.

Also, if a dog is easily available in an area, then its price should be a bit lower than that pooch who is a little bit hard to find. As Greyhounds have a mediocre availability in most parts of India, its price is also a bit higher as compared to those breeds that are easily available such as Labradors, Beagles et cetera.

Reputed Breeder

The reputation of a breeder can also influence the overall price of a breed. Generally, those breeders who are fairly popular and reputed are known to charge a bit more for a breed as compared to some other breeders who are not so well-known or influential. But, because buying a dog from these reputed breeders generally means you are getting a good quality pooch who is fully fit and healthy, people usually don't mind spending a little more money while getting their pups from these popular breeders.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
