The Italian Greyhound has been around since ancient Egyptian times, little is known what their original purpose was, be it flushing birds or killing rats. They can be timid and young children should be watched around them, as their long legs are susceptible to breaks. They do become very devoted to their families and are ideal to families with restricted space. They do feel the cold so need to be rugged up in the winter months.

Grooming- this coat is easy to look after, a rub down with a rough towel or chamois will make the coat nice and shiny. Clean teeth regularly

Exercise- free runs and plays in the yard as well as a daily walk is enough to keep them happy.

Health- This breed is generally sound but some can suffer eye problems and seizures. Should not be exposed to extreme weather conditions.
