The Italian Greyhound makes a good companion dog and enjoys the company of people. However, the breed's
slim build and short coat make them somewhat fragile, and injury can result from rough or careless play with
children under the age of 12.

The breed is equally at home in the city or the country, although they tend to do best in spacious areas. They
are fast, agile and athletic. Like any dog, daily exercise is a must for a happier, well-adjusted pet. Italian
greyhounds love to run. The young dog is often particularly active, and this high level of activity may lead them
to attempt ill-advised feats of athleticism that can result in injury. Due to their size, and in some lineages poor
bone density, they are prone to broken legs which can be expensive to repair.

Italian Greyhounds make reasonably good watchdogs, as they bark at unfamiliar sounds. They may also bark at
passers-by and other animals. However, they should not be considered "true" guard dogs as they are often
aloof with strangers and easily spooked to run.

As gazehounds, Italian Greyhounds instinctively hunt by sight and have an extremely high predator drive.
Owners of Italian Greyhounds typically keep their dogs leashed at all times when not in an enclosed area to
avoid the risk of even a well-behaved pet breaking away at high speed after a small animal. Because of their
frame, it is important to select a harness especially designed for this breed; a regular harness could dislocate
their shoulder.

Grecian urn or a canvas rendered by one of the
Renaissance masters and you have the allure of the
miniature wonder we call the Italian Greyhound. This

As an involved and active member of a loving family,
