Italian Greyhound 101- Dog Breed Info

Best Owner/Animal Match:

In the endless debate of whether or not a dog should be allowed on furniture, an IG owner might want to side with the "go ahead and let them on" team. This breed is "most happy and content cuddled up on the lap or squeezed tightly next to their favorite person all day and night," Coyner says. Other habits you'll have to tolerate include "being licked on the face" and "a dog that is clingy and follows you everywhere." The AKC notes that IGs are equally "adaptable to city and country life."

Other than that, "Italian greyhounds can adapt to almost any type of lifestyle or location as long as the owner is home more than not."

What Italian Greyhound Owners Have to Say:

Lacy Ravencraft of Phoenix, Ariz. owns four IGs. She says, "I love this breed because they are truly one of the most loyal, human-focused dog breeds! They love to cuddle and snuggle under blankets. They have wonderful, often hilarious personalities, and are just such special dogs."
