Fourig is pronounce as Four - IG for my original four pet Italian Greyhounds (see pictured above) and for the four areas of competition that I participate in with my iggies (Conformation, Lure Coursing, Obedience and Agility). The IG is an abbreviation for Italian Greyhounds - the breed I fell in love with.
Welcome to Fourig Italian Greyhounds.....we are located in the southwest part of Ohio, near Dayton. I have owned IG's since 1991 and also joined Gem City Dog Obedience, Agility and Conformation Club at that time. I started getting titles on my dogs in 1992 and am still showing them in AKC, UKC and ASFA.
The following is a small selection of the awards my dogs have received:
- Group Placements in AKC and UKC
- Reserve Best In Show in UKC
- Best Puppy in Show
- High In Trial in obedience at the AKC National Specialty
- Winning Breed at the AKC National Lure Coursing Trial
My goal is to breed sound and healthy IG's with great temperaments but still keep the breed standard. I want to breed the healthiest IG's that I can. I do all health testing that affects the Italian Greyhound breed and others. I will only breed dogs that are clear of all health problems and are correct to breed standards.
