Italian Greyhounds love the luxurious side of life. Placing their delicate bodies on hard, cold surfaces is not for them...but a velvet-padded cushion will be just right to satisfy their comfort level!
Italian Greyhounds love social gatherings and will sit next to their owners like well-behaved school kids. Whenever they get the opportunity, they will jump on your lap to watch the world go by.
Perhaps influenced by their Italian heritage, they are sun worshippers. They get cold easily and when the weather cools down they prefer to wear something warm around their precious little bodies (preferably couture!).
Italian Greyhounds can be very pushy and demanding to gain the level of comfort they desire, and it can sometimes be confusing as to who is the servant and who is the master!
A daily physical outlet is a requirement for their happiness, and they will enjoy regular runs with their owner.
Their coat is very short, smooth and glossy and it does not require much maintenance. They do not really shed very much so they make great house dogs.
