  • Italian Greyhound
Hello, my name is Luna and I’m a wee puppy (10 weeks old as of 4/15/2018). My favorite things to do are to explore and play and chew on things. My foster human says I’m the calmest puppy she’s met, but I’m still a puppy (also we might be on this thing called a honeymoon period). I don’t like it when I can’t see my human. Sometimes my foster human puts me in an exercise pen because I chew shoes and furniture and carpet and cabinets and walls and electrical cords but whatever I’m just exploring. I don’t mind the exercise pen but I don’t like it when I can’t see my human. When she leaves the room I whine really loud and push the ex-pen around until she comes back. I sleep in a crate at night and during the day while everyone is at work. I whine for a few minutes but then I calm down and go to sleep. I’ve only had a few accidents in my crate. I redirect quickly when my human says “no,” but my attention span is short and I need constant supervision. I’m also a little bit of a daredevil but my human keeps an eye on me so I don’t get injured. broken legs are a HUGE risk for Italian Greyhound puppies! I love to play with other dogs, but I’m still learning doggie behavior cues. I haven’t met a cat yet, but I think I would like to play with them. Some cats may not be okay with that. I haven’t met any young kids either, but I’ve heard sometimes when they try to be gentle they still might squeeze or tug a little too hard and I’m pretty small. My foster human says I’m about 80% potty trained. She takes me outside when I start to pace and sniff the floor. I also use potty pads but my aim isn’t great yet and sometimes I miss by a few inches. I do okay on a leash but I’d rather chew it than walk with it. From the foster human: Luna is a very sweet and inquisitive puppy but needs lots of supervision. She’s about 80% velcro dog; she loves to cuddle and would prefer to sleep in the human bed, but she also sleeps and plays and explores independently. An experienced IG home without young children would be preferred as she is still very young. However, Luna could be a great introduction to the breed for the right person. She will only be adopted out in the Missouri/Kansas area. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

  • Italian Greyhound
Neville is playful, energetic puppy at about 10 weeks of age. According to his foster mom, he is the sweetest little guy ever! He is extremely treat motivated—learning sit, down, stay and (almost) roll over in less than a week. He will do anything to get a treat and loves all the attention! His favorite thing to do is to cuddle. He adores snuggling up next to you on the couch, and if you’re lucky, you will even catch him snoring. Neville is very much a puppy and has more energy than he knows what to do with! He has enjoyed playing with other dogs and is slowly learning his puppy manners. Georgie sleeps quietly throughout the night and will wake up and let you know when he needs to go potty. While he is still a puppy and will need work with housetraining, he is catching on very quickly and would do best in a home with a fenced yard. Italian Greyhound puppies are especially at risk for broken legs, so his adopter must be very careful to set up the home and monitor play to prevent any potential injuries. He will only be adopted out in the Missouri/Kansas area. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

  • Italian Greyhound
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Prefers home without small kids
Maddie and Angel are bonded females who have been in the same home together for several years, so they would ideally be adopted out together. They are extremely friendly with people and would happily lick your face for as long as you’d allow! They both love to snuggle with people and actively seek out attention and petting. Angel likes to go under a blanket next to her person while Maddie prefers to stay on top of the blanket so she’s aware of everything happening in the house. Most of the time these girls get along with the other IGs in their foster home, but they can be protective of their space and food, particularly Angel. Maddie is a foodie and eats quickly then will try to eat others’ food if she’s allowed. Angel eats slowly and sometimes needs someone to sit with and encourage her, and no other dogs can be nearby. With frequent trips outside and a consistent schedule, they have made excellent progress with their potty habits in a short time in foster care. It’s been too cold to spend much time outside, but they have shown some playful tendencies and Angel enjoys squeaking, carrying around, and fetching toys. They would do best in a home without children due to their protective nature. Maddie & Angel are crate trained and stay in their individual crates next to each other both at night and when their foster family is at work. Both girls have had recent dentals but will need a home to do daily brushing. Angel reportedly had one seizure in a 3 year span at her previous home. They are spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on preventative. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

Otis is such a good boy! He has settled in well with his foster parents and their IGs, preferring to be in the same room as his family. He likes to sleep under covers and would love to sleep in bed with his forever family. Otis gets along well with the other IGs in his foster home and would love to have another small dog friend preferably an IG. He had negative experiences in his past home with large dogs so he will not be adopted to a home with a large dog. It’s unknown how he does with cats but he does well with older kids and meeting new adults. He’s been doing well with his potty habits but does require a fenced yard to help him continue to be successful. Otis isn’t a huge fan of the crate but will go in with a treat and has good leash skills. He’s had a dental, is neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on his vaccinations. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

Meet Aragon and Duncan! These two are co-captains of the Olympic Snuggle team! They are both so good at it that it was impossible to choose a gold medalist between them. Aragon and Duncan are a bonded senior pair and love each other dearly! They have been together their entire lives, and with the same owner until they were lovingly surrendered to rescue. Being seniors, they are graceful and well behaved. If you are beyond the fun puppy stuff (chewing up your chair legs and eating your slippers, etc.) these fellas are for you! They have gotten along very well with the two other small dogs in their foster home. Aragon is more timid at first but Duncan doesn’t know a stranger in the world! They enjoy the fenced back yard and also do very well leash walking. They know why they are outside and they take care of things as they should! These boys are completely up to date with all vaccinations and will each have a dental prior to adoption. Aragon and Duncan are a happy pair that want only one thing for Christmas and the New Year - their new forever home! 4/19/18 10:07 AM

Parker has made huge strides since coming into rescue. He has healed from his broken leg, been neutered, and had a dental. Parker is shy and reserved but wanting to interact more with people every day. He still prefers to be in his kennel but when that is not an option, he wags his tail, tries to play and gets excited. Parker still doesn't like being held but does like massages and neck scratches. He gets nervous when there is a hand reaching toward him and will run away. Parker does LOVE food and will come up to people with treats. Like most IGs, he’s curious about everything. Parker’s foster home thinks he's going to be a playful happy dog one day, but the adopter must realize that it's not going to happen overnight. He has "safe" places for him throughout the house (dog beds) and if he knows he can get to one if he gets scared, he's happy. Another dog is an absolute must for Parker, as he loves trying to play and takes all his cues from his foster dog siblings. He would do best with another IG and no big dogs. Parker is doing well with leash training and has made great progress with his potty habits when taken out on a schedule. He has some separation anxiety and is very vocal when he is left on his own. Parker will need a home without small children due to his fragility and shyness. We will be adopting Parker out only to Missouri/Kansas or neighboring states. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

Tinker is sweet senior boy looking for a quiet retirement home. His favorite place to be is curled up in his dog bed, but he also loves to be outside enjoying the sunshine. This boy has EXCELLENT potty habits!! He is very vocal when he is scared, so cannot be confined if his person leaves the house, but so far has been totally fine hanging out loose in the house. Tinker and his foster mom are working on putting some weight on him to get him healthy. He has had a recent dental, is up-to-date on vaccinations, and is heartworm negative and on preventative. Tinker needs a quiet home with no children. 4/19/18 10:07 AM

Shadow is a sweet biggy iggy at around 20 lbs. This outgoing, friendly, and confident boy is blue and has a lovely soft coat. Shadow is good with cats and other small dogs, settling easily into his foster pack. His potty habits have been very good in his foster home, and he does fine in a crate as well. Shadow was recently diagnosed with progressive retinal atrophy, or PRA, which has left him blind. Despite this he adapts to new situations well, so much so that we still thought he had some vision left. One of his favorite past times is spending time on the sofa next to his people, and he enjoys the occasional belly rub. Shadow is up-to-date on vetting, heartworm negative, and on preventative. 4/19/18 10:07 AM
