Adoptable Italian Greyhounds



Little Thor came into rescue when his person developed dementia. 

He is seven years old and weighs twelve pounds, and is a very handsome little fellow. He was a little nervous when he first arrived in his foster home, but soon revealed himself to be a sweet, affectionate dog that loves to cuddle and be petted. He gets along well with other small dogs and likes to romp around the house and play.  While he is used to being a single dog, he would certainly do well with a friend. He has given the occasional bark, but is mostly a quiet fellow. 

He apparently was never walked much, as he is rather nervous about being out on leash. I am sure he will improve around this in time, but he may never been enthusiastic about it, so would not be the best match for someone who wants a dog to hike with. 

He has been quite good with his toilet habits in his foster home, but as with any Italian greyhound he will need your help in making sure he establishes good habits in his new home. 

Adoption Info
As you can imagine, we take the adoption process very seriously. We don’t just give dogs to people who ask. The process to become approved for adoption includes an application, phone interview, and home visit. Once you are approved, and if one of the fosters fits your lifestyle and needs, as determined by the home visit, we will put you in touch with the foster home where you can go to visit the dog. If we don't have a fit, we will put you on a matching list.

The adoption fees are as follows:
Up to 6 months $475
7 Months to 2 Years $425
3 Years to 6 Years $400
7 Years to 9 Years $375
10 years and over $275

These fees are sent to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Fund to offset the cost of medical expenses of the dog being placed, and provide medical care for future rescue dogs. All dogs are up to date on vaccines, HW tested, spayed/nuetered and dentals done as needed.
