The Italian Greyhound, also known as Italian Sighthound, is the smallest of the "sight hounds" and is the scaled down version of its larger Greyhound cousins. They were once the preferred dog of royalty and nobility. There are some people who believe that the mummified remains of similar dogs found in ancient Egyptian tombs may be their ancestors, implying that the Italian Greyhound could be a descendant of ancient canine breeds.
