There are two theories. One, Italian Greyhounds were bred down from the larger hunting dogs of the Pharaohs. Or they were developed in ancient Turkey or Greece, Regardless, they are downsized from the full sized hunting greyhounds. Over a long period of time, humans selected the smaller/finer of the puppies to produce the next generation.
