Italian Greyhound

General Description

This is an elegant and slender dog, looking like a standard Greyhound but in miniature. The coat is smooth and glossy and can come in a variety of shades. The head is narrow with a very fine muzzle and ears are softly folded and set high on the head. The spine slopes gently, and there is a defined tuck-up in the loins.

Character and Temperament

Affectionate, intelligent, athletic, mischievous, agile and companionable

Exercise

How much exercise does an Italian Greyhound need? Despite their size, they are energetic little dogs and need between 40 to 60 minutes of exercise a day. Their dainty legs mean walks in grassy areas are preferred.
