Nothing annoys me more than a dog becoming a rescue team because of his age. Apart from the fact that someone may turn an old dog into a rescue dog and never get proper care and full expectation, I have a long line just waiting to adopt an old dog without teeth and health problems. Anyone with this idea can contact me and ask about the swamps I sell in Arizona. Italian Greyhound likes to give and receive love. When they want it, not when you decide you have time. If they don’t get the attention they need, they can become destructive and have behavioral problems.
Italian Greyhound needs attention in teeth. I brush my dog’s teeth every day. Failure to provide adequate dental care will cause respiratory blight, flowers, and bacteria to flow through your dog’s blood, which can lead to other health problems. Bone loss caused by improper dental care also makes dogs prone to jaw fractures.
