Crate training-please note that we teach crating as a 'safe happy personal space' where the IG can rest/sleep when confinement is necessary. Crates should NEVER be used as a punishment or 'time out' space. I consider the crate my safe space and don't mind being in there at all for reasonable amounts of time. If the door is left open, I will put myself inside to rest.
Italian Greyhounds are known for housebreaking issues and most will have occasional accidents. Many come to us as surrenders due to excessive potty accidents indoors. This is typically the result of poor potty routines within the previous home so we do typically get them on track fairly quickly. As an IG parent you must be willing to commit to a structured and reasonable routine to keep your iggy from having excessive indoor accidents. My house-training Status is: Occasional accidents
I know how to use a supervised dog door when the humans are home
A little more about me and my personality:

Currently, Zane is only available for adoption consideration in Texas or Oklahoma.

Zane is a 2 year old loving dog, who enjoys cuddling with his foster family while watching a movie. He is an elegant fawn boy with hazel eyes that will capture anyone's attention. He loves going on walks and will probably do better as the only dog. Once Zane gets attached to you, he will be your buddy everywhere you go. He likes to play chase around the house with his human. Zane gets along better with older kids. He sleeps with
humans, and is potty trained. At times, Zane will have a # 2 accident in the house. He is learning to use it outdoors.  He responds to his name and will tilt his head if you give him positive attention. Zane is crate trained. You
will fall in love with his special personality.
