The Chippiparai dogs have long legs, an arched back, a long, curved tail for balance, and an elongated face. Their expressive, fox-like ears are endearing, and they often have an adorable, gentle yet keen and intense look. Unlike a greyhound, they have bigger thoraxes and are generally more muscular.
