Italian Greyhound Jogging

The Italian Greyhound is the smallest dog in the Greyhound family. In decreasing size order, there’s the Greyhound, then the Whippet and finally the Italian Greyhound. The problem with these dogs is that ‘there’s no meat!’. They are so skinny that if there is the slightest cooler wind, they will get chilled and…

Originally they were used to hunt rabbits and hare. Italian Greyhound can run every faster than the rabbits or the hares with a top speed of 60km/h ≅ 35 miles/hr. Now nobody use Italian Greyhounds to hunt, they have become companion dogs and are considered a toy breed.

For me, to be a ‘real dog’, the dog must have a nose, ears and a tail. Italian Greyhounds fully qualify.

Isn’t she cute?
