This miniature greyhound originates from ancient Egypt and from there the breed became popular and spread all over the Mediterranean countries.
The Italian greyhound was beloved in ancient Rome by the patrician and became the pampered pet of the wealthy aristocracy.
We admired numerous Italian greyhound pictures and marble statues in the Vatican Museums in the wonderful section dedicated to animal statues that testify the popularity of this miniature greyhound in ancient Rome.
Nevertheless the Italian greyhound is to this day a determined and fast hunter of rabbits and hares as well as a dignified pet.
We are often asked what's the difference between whippets and Italian Greyhounds. Italian greyhounds are smaller and finer looking than whippets. Compare in these pictures the size of whippets with that of iggies.
