Italian Greyhound Colors, Patterns, and Markings

People often do not know what color or pattern their dogs have, or the markings which can help identify their dogs if lost or found. Sometimes it is tricky to determine, but more often than not it is pretty straight forward.

The Rainbow of Italian Greyhound Colors

Although IGs do not come in green, yellow or purple, there is a wide variety of colors you will see for Italian Greyhounds, and each is shown below with pictures demonstrating that color. We have tried to organize similar looking colors together to hopefully illustrate the differences between them.

Italian Greyhound Patterns & Markings

The patterns above may or may not have each of the following features...

One color NOT seen in Italian Greyhounds is brindle, which is commonly seen in their larger cousins, the Whippet and (full-size) Greyhound...
