WELCOME TO ITALIAN GREYHOUND HOME
Welcome to IG's Page!We live among the hills and trees. We've have been raising Italian Greyhounds for 10 years now, and cannot imagine my life without them. Nothing makes us happier than watching them romp and run in our big yard, enjoying the fresh air and country sunshine. In the evening, nothing is more relaxing than curling up in a recliner with an IG... or two... or three... on our laps. And then, there are the puppies- oh, the puppies! Italian Greyhound puppies are a whirlwind of entertainment. There is certainly never a dull moment here!
My Italian Greyhounds are of excellent health, conformation, and temperament. These are all inherited traits with a strong environmental influence, which is important to you when searching for the perfect puppy. They come with vet check, health certificate, written health guarantee, dewclaws removed, wormed, first three puppy shots, shot record, puppy food sample, vitamin sample, optional AKC registration papers, and a lifetime of unlimited breeder support. Microchipping is available. I also offer a complete housetraining plan, custom tailored to each family, based on your individual circumstances. If you follow my plan, you will have success.
Health testing is done on our IGs. I take pride in all I do concerning the dogs and pups, and have a love for continuing education in all canine-related matters such as genetics, neonatal care, veterinary care, nutrition, dog psychology, etc. I am told that my attention to detail is what my buyers enjoy about working with me because they see the same level of interest and concern that goes into the care of each dog and puppy, being also carried forward in communications with each buyer, doing my best to match the right pup to the right home, and assisting in a smooth transition from my home to yours. This is my passion and my pride, and I love every minute of it. It's hard work and very time consuming but very fulfilling.
Size: Height: 32 - 38 cm (12.5 - 15 inches); Weight: 7-14 pounds (3-6kg)
Coat: Consists of fine, short hair. The color is often slate, black, or greyish yellow, occasionally with white on the chest and feet. There are flecked versions, but not all countries consider them acceptable.
Character: Italian Greyhounds are affectionate, cheerful, active and intelligent.
Temperament: This dog gets along well with other dogs and cats. It gets along with children, provided that they know not to treat the dog as a toy. They get along very well with each other, and it is a good idea to have more than one.
Care: Very little grooming is required. Wipe the dog with a cloth to make the coat shine, and check the teeth regularly for tartar. Until it is eighteen months old, the bones are quite fragile and it can break a leg rather easily.
Training: This breed learns quickly. It may wish to have its own way and occasionally will be naughty, so consistency is necessary.
Activity: This breed needs frequent opportunities to run freely in a large enclosed area.
