The activity, function and appearance of these Greyhounds are incredibly similar to Greyhounds today.

The Pierpont Morgan Library in New York also has a copy of this manuscript with similar illustrations. Selected illustrations were presented in Medieval Dogs Brought to Light, in Pure-Bred Dogs / American Kennel Gazette, September 1992.
