About the Breed
The Italian Greyhound or IG is a small affectionate breed that like to cuddle right up with you. It is the smallest of the sight hounds. It is a ancient breed that looks like the Greyhound in miniature. It is
streamlined and speedy. The IG is very sensitive to cold so be prepared to share a cozy blanket with yours. But it loves a chance to run. They are finely boned and should be treated with respect for its
size. They are a quiet breed, rarely barking. They can be reserved with stranger but willing to make friends when introduced.(Our breeding program is strongly devoted to improving the temperament while preserving the conformation of our dogs.) Many vets are surprised to meet our Very Outgoing puppies! They truly excel at what they were bred for which was being a companion.
The IG’s coat is short and fine. The coat can be kept in great condition by wiping it down every day or so with a chamois cloth. They come in almost any color and pattern much like its bigger cousin the
Greyhound. The Italian Greyhound is about 13-15 inches tall and weighs 8 to 18 lbs. We start all our IG pups with litter box training.
