Consider the awe-inspiring beauty of the perfect Grecian urn or a canvas rendered by one of the Renaissance masters and you have the allure of the miniature wonder we call the Italian Greyhound. This graceful greyhound in miniature defines elegance in a Toy dog, more slender, of course, than the much larger race dog whose name he shares. Having passed centuries on the divans of European nobility, the Italian Greyhound continues to ornament the homes of loving fanciers around the world, enchanting them with his affectionate, vivacious ways. As an involved and active member of a loving family, the Italian Greyhound thrives in the right home. This book provides the much-needed factual information about Italian Greyhounds and their history, characteristics and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, obedience training and preventative health care. The new owner will welcome the author's experience and advice about puppy-proofing the home, housebreaking and preventing puppy problems. In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive.
