They have large rabbit feet, powerful strong legs, and barrel chest which make them into strong and fast runners with great endurance. The bones and muscles on the Italian Greyhauhau are bigger than the Italian Greyhound which can make them heaver than an Italian Greyhound. But the legs on this breed are normally shorter and more stocky then the Italian Greyhound. Favorable characteristics are thier beautiful large sight hound eyes, distinctive Italian Greyhound ears, the powerful deep bark of the Greyhound, and a soft satin fur coat.

Character


The Italian Greyhuahua is active, affectionate, and intelligent. Extremely devoted to its master, fiercely loyal, and sweet natured. Like the Italian Greyhound they become gentle and timid around strangers. The breed will listen intently when told to do something, but can become sensitive if shown harsh treatment. Like the Chihuahua their faces can be very expressive when they smile at you. With their big eyes they see everything and will take things off the shelf. With their endless curiosity they will find a way to get into anything, pull the stuffing out of toys, and chew on wood if they don't have a chewy.

Italian Greyhuahua Q&A

What is the best type of dog food to feed to an Italian Greyhuahua? Should it be canned wet food or dry food?

Actually it is best to mix the dry food with the wet food because it tastes better for the dog and it is easier to eat, and actually, it keeps them from eating their own poo and eating at table scraps.
