Featuring the Italian Greyhound dog breed figurines, gifts, and collectibles. The Italian Greyhound is the smallest breed of the sight hounds. They are very slim dogs that weigh between 8 and 18 pounds and stand 13 to 15 inches tall at the withers. These dogs are classified in the toy group because of their weight; yet, they are larger than other dogs in this same group. The Italian Greyhound makes a good companion dog because they enjoy the company of people.
