Carmen the pretty IGGY (Italian Greyhound)
My Italian Greyhound is AMAZING. She has a mind of her own that is for sure. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle, but she also LOVES to do things on her own. Which is fine BUT always ALWAYS know where they are.
I have never had a dog that likes getting in trouble. And this breed does. It is funny at first but if you don't correct it quick they think it is funny too. Italian Greyhounds are pretty much like cats. Love sun bathing and warmth. They also clean themselves like cats. Kinda weird.
Every time I get my warm clothes in the dryer and set the basket down you can almost bet that Carmen will bury herself in it. Warm towels are a must in the winter. Even a heating pad...(BE CAREFUL) if you have a chewer.
If you get an Italian Greyhound you will be asked A MILLION TIMES if it's a Whippet. A lot of people have no idea that Iggys are out there. I even had someone ask me if she was a miniture Great Dane HAHA she is 9 lbs people!
Even though they are lovers they need to go outside and release a crap ton of that energy. If you let them run outside for 30-45 mins a day she'll be fine! And I mean sleepppp!!! They might get up a few times to chew on a bone or eat but they sleep. PLUS puppy potty training hahaha have fun. All I can say is be patient.
Good luck to all of you who are getting an Iggy. They are so much fun and you will fall in love as soon as you see them.
