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:Very rare or no indoor accidents
A little more about me and my personality:I am a loner. I like the occasional pets on the head.
If I have a known medical issue or am taking any medications, they are listed here:I take medicine for pain for my arthritis once a day. I have cataracts so I am considered blind.
