Italian Greyhound - Guide to Italian Greyhounds

Description: Italian Greyhounds are small, slender, elegant and graceful. They're extremely affectionate thus making them excellent companion dogs. Italian Greyhounds have a very old lineage dating back more than 2000 years ago to the areas we know today as Greece and Turkey. Depictions of Italian Greyhounds found on many ancient artifacts and archaeological discoveries of their skeletons confirms their existence during this time. Some claim Italian Greyhounds were used to hunt small game, others claim they were simply used as family pets.

During the sixteenth century, the breed was so popular in Italy that they became known as "Italian Greyhounds". They were also quite popular in Southern Europe at this time. By the seventeenth century, Italian Greyhounds arrived in England - also becoming a favorite there as well.

Italian Greyhounds were first registered with the American Kennel Club in 1886 and The Italian Greyhound Club of American was founded in 1954.
