Dolly came to me as a very young rescue, and just never left, and never will. Fiercely loyal, family orientated, and wickedly smart the Italian Greyhuahua is the perfect dog for a active family, with a A LOT of patience. Stubborn, with a high prey drive makes this smart lil thing an escape artist and runner. AND I MEAN RUN, the brat child has been clocked at about 18-20mph in an open field. Does well with children if socialized with them young, she is a consummate traveler, and is up to pass her therapy good tests in a few months. Definitely love this dog.
