ITALIAN GREYHOUND (IG)

Around 1985 I became fascinated with these little Toy Greyhounds which in many ways resembled Whippets.  I have spent over 25-years learning a lot about them.  They are fascinating, and even though they are quite different from my Whippets, I enjoy them tremendously.  For those of you not familiar with this small breed, the Italian Greyhound is a tiny elegant sighthound that is loads of fun to play with, show and love.  They are extremely intelligent but are more sensitive and fragile minded than the Whippet or Greyhound.  They are also extremely athletic and “faster than lightning”.  “IGs“, as we call them, try very hard to please their owners but have little tolerance for loud, insensitive people.  I can only recommend them as pets for obedient, sensible children.
