I seem to get a lot of young dogs to walk which is great towards getting them socialized but bad for me in that I have to double up as a walker and trainer as well. This greyhound mix I walked had heavy Italian greyhound traits both lookwise and personality wise. I couldn't tell what other breeds she was mixed with, but the greyhound part was very strong. She had long and lean features, from her body to her face, and long legs. She seemed shy, and did not warm up throughout the walk, but was not aggressive at all, just insecure and nervous. A lot of sounds scared her, especially skateboards, trucks, honking and motorcycles. And guess what? She lives in NYC where those sounds are ubiquitous even when your indoors. Bad owner!! This sweetie was very skittish but so sweet. She loved to be shown affection and although I didnt see it for myself, it seems she would make a nontraditional lap dog and would love to cuddle in bed. She was definitely introverted and an indoor dog which is great if youre a couch potato and live in the countryside. She is definitely not suited for the hustle and bustle of NYC (and there is nothing wrong with that, it just seems she was a poor match for her owner and city living). Leyla as she was appropriately called was very curious and liked to sniff anything and everything. She had a bad habit of trying to find food on the ground to eat but responded well when told to leave it/drop it. So she was obedient and intelligent, but very shy and unsure. She definitely could get along well with other dogs of a similar personality. Definitely not bigger breeds though or dogs with bold personalities. In addition, because of her brittle stature (thin, long boned), it would be wise to be careful with this breed when playing with young kids or other dogs. Definitely need to be kept watch over at the dog park, or even better avoid it if you have a fenced yard. Italian greyhounds are bred to race as well so you know they can be very very fast on their feet. For this reason, it is best to keep them on a harness, not a collar as it can slip over their small, narrow necks. They are endearing dogs for all.
