May’s Breed Spotlight: Italian Greyhound

A true Greyhound in miniature, the elegant Italian Greyhound (IG) is an alert, playful, and highly affectionate toy companion. IGs are Greyhounds in miniature, more slender, but a Greyhound’s equal in grace and elegance. IGs combine the attentiveness of lapdogs with the complexity of ancient, aristocratic hounds. Bred for centuries to be doting companions and jesters, these high-stepping charmers refuse to be ignored.
