Artist's Description

The Italian Greyhound is a small breed of dog of the sight hound type. They are sometimes called an “I.G.”, or “Iggy” for short.
The Italian Greyhound is the smallest of the sighthounds, typically weighing about 8 to 15 lbs (3.6 to 6.8 kg) and standing about 13 to 15 inches (33 – 38 cm) tall at the withers. Though they are in the “toy” group based on their weight, they are larger than other dogs in the category due to their slender bodies, so owners must be careful when sizing clothing or accommodations.
The Italian Greyhound’s chest is deep, with a tucked up abdomen, long slender legs and a long neck that tapers down to a small head. The face is long and pointed, like a full sized greyhound. Overall, they look like “miniature” Greyhounds, though many Italian Greyhound owners dispute the use of the term “miniature Greyhound”, in reference to the breed itself. Their gait is distinctive and should be high stepping and free, rather like that of a horse. They are able to run at top speed with a double suspension gallop,5 and can achieve a top speed of up to 25mph (40km/h).
The Italian Greyhound is affectionate and makes a good companion dog. The breed is excellent for families and enjoys the company of people. While they are excellent with children, the breed’s slim build and short coat make them somewhat fragile, and injury can result from rough play..
