Italian Greyhound Information
The Italian Greyhound has the same grace and speed as the Greyhound, just in a smaller package. Much smaller – the breed is barely a foot tall with a very slender build. Experts debate whether the Italian was bred for hunting small animals or simply for providing companionship. We may never know since the breed’s history dates back more than 2,000 years.
As a pet, the Italian Greyhound is playful and highly affectionate with a sensitive nature. His satin fur can vary in color, from white to black and nearly every color in between, and requires very little maintenance.
