solid gray, slate gray, cream, red, fawn, black, or blue - often with

Greyhound is an elegant, miniature, fine-boned Greyhound
with a long head thinning gradually to a pointed muzzle.
It has a healthy scissors bite, thin lips and a dark
nose. Like its cousins, the brisket is deep, abdomen
is tucked-in, and the back is arched. The tail is straight,
ending in a slight curve. Its fine narrow ears fold
back along the head, but rise perpendicular to the head
when the dog is alert. Its neck is thin and long. Its
large, dark eyes are expressive. Its coat is short and
sleek. The Italian Greyhound has a high-stepping gait.
