indoor pup is the lightning-fast Italian

Greyhound these pups are unique breed

with a lot to offer for the experienced

dog owner it's common knowledge that

Italian Greyhounds are born runners

however people often mistakenly think

that they have exponentially high energy

levels that require wide-open spaces to

run and burn it off the fact is their

energy levels aren't terribly higher

than your average pup usually they'll

just need a few daily walks and a little

playtime to fulfill their exercise needs

puffball of fun to keep you on your toes

couch potato dogs in check

luckily household games or short walks

can easily keep the energy levels in

check and your Pug will appreciate the

time spent with you number seven

park but in reality he's probably just

as happy staying home in bed

chihuahuas are one of the smallest

breeds in the world often weighing

around five pounds making them perfect

for living in small spaces they can be

perfectly content in the confines of a

one-bedroom apartment as it seems like a

complain additionally they're perfectly

sized for smaller spaces usually

at home in a Soho penthouse they'll

happily adjust to pretty much any code

Maltese will be perfectly happy spending

a lot of time indoors

busy for hours without the need for

constant exercise like every breed your

basset will need at least a little bit

of time outside that concludes our video
