I love them both! I want to adopt a rescue,
but are whippets better because Italian greyhounds
have they lot of tendency towards disease or breaking bones?
I read a profile on the IG breed and it seemed like they were so many diseases they could be prone to! And IGs may not want to pee in the snow or rain?
Is this all true of whippets also? Do whippets pee outside? I saw IGs wear potty belts or something like this in case they pee inside, like they are hard to housebreak?
Do whippets housebreak? If not I don't think I can go into this. :rofl:
Big commitment adopting a dog, I don't have children!

Another website on whippets says they are easy to housebreak. If anyone has a whippet would love to hear your thoughts. Do they smell? I don't think IG's do.

IG's have a ton of physical and mental issues, so I would go for a whippet. IG's are one of the hardest breeds out there to housebreak(if not the hardest), and are very nervous and fearful. Whippets are much more grounded and sane.
