When Is Skinny Good?

Well, I guess Italian Greyhounds are supposed to be thin. But how thin?  We have a new young male–so handsome and full of energy, but I think he is a little thin. I can see his ribs and backbone–is that normal for that breed, or do we need to fatten him up a little.  Regardless, he is eating and wants out of his kennel. Tomorrow is the last day for his family to claim him, and then he goes on our adoption list.  Hope he finds a good home with a family that understand and love his breed.  I know the breed are fast for sure, and we named him Rocket.  He wants to blast out of his kennel, so you have to be fast when feeding him.  Watch for Rocket in the next week–we will have pictures and more about him soon.

  1. I worked with greyhounds for roughly 20 years and the ribs and the backbone showing are normal for the breed. The Italian Greyhound can be fattened up a little but you need to be careful that you aren’t harming him by fattening him up a little. The Italian Greyhound will let you know when they are hungry and by placing food in front of them all the time they will begin to chunk out and appear like a normal dog when in fact they are overweight.
