Information and Pictures

"Meet Moshe, a one-year-old neutered male Italian Greyhuahua. He weighs 6 pounds, stands 12" at the withers, has a beautiful solid brindle coat, and can run as fast as lightning. Although someone docked his tail before I rescued him, he carries it down and flat against his body. Occasionally he will wag it, but always in slow motion. Moshe has the best of both breeds: sweet, gentle, friendly, observant, cautious, playful and affectionate. The sleek, muscular body coupled with the large ears and rounded forehead make for a face that resembles the fruit bat."

Description

The Italian Greyhuahua is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Italian Greyhound and the Chihuahua. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
