My sister has an Italian Greyhound, the smaller cousin of the Greyhound and he is a lovely little dog. She's had him since son was 10 months old and he is a wonderful little dog. He adores my 5 year old son and is really good with him and very tolerant of him. They play well together n he just loves playing fetch in the garden for hours on end and enjoys basking in the sun. He is a much loved treasured member of our family.
