Italian Greyhound

I am the smallest of the greyhounds and I have been told that I was the first breed of dog ever bred strictly for the role of companion.

My mummified relatives have been discovered in tombs of pharoahs, and they have been depicted in ancient texts and paintings for centuries. I was quite a popular dog at one time, living in the palaces of kings and rulers.

I am a good pet choice for those of you who donít have accomodations for a large dog and who donít have the time to devote to elaborate grooming routines.

I am intelligent, friendly and agreeable, but it takes a little while for me to get to know people.

When fully grown, I am between 13 and 15 inches tall (33 to 38.1 centimeters) and I weigh about 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms).
