Iggy's are very beautiful,loving,very gentle,proud, small, great for apartment, easy to handle, not agressive temperment, and make great
hot water bottles, thin coat means very little shedding. The also get along well with other dogs and cats. Fleas don't have anywhere to hide.
Prefer to sleep under covers which some people don't like. They are one owner dogs, they love their owner and will do anything to get to them if left. Their think coats are a little downfall in that they don't like the cold weather and need at least a sweater. They are very lean dogs and for that reason vets need to be careful of anesthesia and also have thin skin when needing surgery. Best kept on leash, they can run fast. Can't think of 10 reasons not to be owned by an Italian Greyhound.
