The first time the woman claimed she was scared of her ... (Read More)husband and was just too scared. The second woman became scared of Oreo after Oreo got a sticker in her foot and when the woman went to take it out she put her mouth on her hand as though she was going to bite. After that the woman was too scared to handle her- she never broke the skin she was scared and in pain and reacted. Oreo loves her foster family and has never offered to bite any of them however they have been very patient with her to gain her trust and she is now very loving to everyone in the home. She is also very sweet and loving towards people visiting she is just scared initially and when meeting strangers so whoever adopts her just needs to realize they will have to be patient and earn her trust.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Italian Greyhound in New Mexico
    Italian Greyhound Dogs can make good pets in New Mexico if they match your IifestyIe. The Italian Greyhound is a gentle, elegant, somewhat nervous and high strung dog. The Italian Greyhound makes a good companion for low-key families without rambunctious children. Italian Greyhounds get along well with other pets, especially other Italian Greyhounds, but do not do well with larger dogs. Italian Greyhounds need gentle but firm obedience training.
