A companion to Italian noblewoman in the Middle Ages, the Italian Greyhound is an affectionate and athletic breed. They love to run and can reach speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. Despite their small size, they have a lot of energy and love to exercise. The Italian Greyhound loves their family but can be weary of strangers. They do make a good watchdog thanks to their deep bark. This breed is intelligent and can be easily trained if the training is fun and consistent. Like many smaller breeds, the Italian Greyhound can be a bit hard to housetrain. This breed does not do well in the cold weather and you can usually find them lounging in the sun or perched on high places like backs of chairs or windowsills. This breed loves attention and will follow you around everywhere. They have a big personality and will make a loving and affectionate companion.
