Italian Greyhounds

on April 23, 2012

 

 

All of a sudden, I see them everywhere! They are the newest breed that is quickly on the rise. These cute little dogs are not a new addition to the American Kennel Club’s list of official breeds. The Italian Greyhound is one of the oldest breeds dating as far back as the Roman Empire Days! Historians think that Italian Greyhounds were the only acceptable breed during those days. These pooches were a symbol of royalty and honor.

They remained as a status symbol for sometime until replaced by bigger dogs that were used for protection. Now the Italian Greyhound is making a comeback and there is no surprise why.

These dogs are the ultimate companion dogs. They will never pass up the opportunity to snuggle up on your lap and they are just the perfect size to be a lap dog. The Italian Greyhound tops out at around 18 lbs. For people striving for a small friend this is the perfect breed for you! They are great starter dogs for first time owners as well.

Living in a warm environment is a must for these small little guys. They have a very light coat and being greyhounds, they don’t carry weight very well.  Some people say that Italian Greyhounds are even easier to train on a littler box (It helps when it is cold out!).

If you are looking for the perfect companion, then the Italian Greyhound is for you!
