A Sweet Disposition.
The Italian Greyhound is the smallest of the
family of gazehounds (dogs that hunt by sight). It is
believed to have originated more than 2000 years ago in
the Mediterranean basin somewhere, perhaps, Greece,
Turkey or Egypt. It was often favored by royalty.
Teeming with affection, Italian Greyhounds thrive
and are happiest when this affection is returned. They
are greatly sensitive, alert, intelligent, playful far beyond
puppyhood and very adaptable to most households, friendly
towards children and other pets. Its odorless, short, satiny,
soft coat sheds little and only needs grooming once a week.
An Italian Greyhound is a classy looking companion. For
your family, consider an Italian Greyhound puppy, but be
sure your children are well discplined because they
are a small dog breed with delicate bones.
