Marlane Tripoli, WI 1/1/2011 4:34:31 PM Italian Greyhounds are one of the best house dogs! They are small, and have a smooth coat that doesn't need grooming or bathing. You can wipe them off with a damp washcloth! No doggy odor, and very friendly, intelligent, loving, inquisitive dogs with a satin-like coat. The ideal dog!!
