The Italian version of this canine is really a miniature greyhound, as they are identical to their larger cousins in almost every way. Italian greyhounds are incredibly sensitive and are always aware of their surroundings. They love to play, and they love their humans.
These dogs would much rather lounge around directly on your lap than the ground at your feet or even right next to you on the couch. This bond is serious.
