*Ellie will only be adopted to an IG-experienced home and a home with a secure, fenced yard.* Ellie is a solid yet small iggy at 9 pounds. She spends much of her day playing with the other dog in the home. She does like her quiet time and seeks out humans for snuggles. Ellie was very timid her first day or two in rescue, but has adjusted well due to her curious and playful nature. Toys and treats are the secret to her heart. She is still skittish, particularly in response to loud noises or sudden movements. She does very well on a leash, but will freeze if she gets scared. She doesn't like to be outside and is progressing well with paper training. She defers to other dogs in most situations, even when they want to keep playing long after she is tired out. Because of this, and because she is still skittish, she would do best in a home without young children or overly rambunctious puppies. 11/15/17 11:11 AM

Annabelle (Annie) is a pretty blue and white girl weighing 12.5 pounds. Annie was extremely timid at first but quickly warmed up to her foster family. She enjoys snuggling and will nuzzle her head under your hand if you stop petting her. Annie always wants to be where her humans are and will cry or whine when she can’t see them. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home and has been indifferent to the cats. Annie sleeps in a kennel at night and when humans are not at home but wants to be kenneled within sight of other dogs in the house. She is very smart and has picked up potty training and leash skills quickly. She does love to run and she is fast! This athletic girl has also shown the ability to jump up on tables. Annie needs a secure, tall fenced yard and someone who will continue to work with her, as she is a typical energetic IG puppy. She is hesitant at first with guests but warms quickly if guests are calm and patient to let her approach. She does have some skittish tendencies, as she will jump at loud sounds or sudden movements and doesn’t like when she is approached too fast. Annie will need a home with no small children due to her energy level, skittish nature, and fragility of the breed. 11/15/17 11:11 AM

  • Italian Greyhound
Parker recently broke his leg and had successful surgery to repair it. He also has advanced dental disease and will need to have all or most of his teeth extracted in addition to a neuter once he has recovered from his broken leg. Parker is shy and reserved but wanting to interact more with people every day. He LOVES food likes to come up with treats. Like most IGs, he’s curious about everything. He likes massages and neck scratches but is nervous when there is a hand reaching toward him. Parker is doing well with leash training and working on his potty habits. 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. 11/15/17 11:11 AM

Pixie is a sweetheart who wags her tail and wants to approach people for attention. Although she is shy, she has a happy-go-lucky personality. Once she is being held and petted, she melts. She loves other dogs and ignores the cat in her foster home. Due to poor nutrition and neglect, she has advanced dental disease and will need to have all of her teeth extracted. Pixie has some mobility issues with her hind quarters. Her hips pop in and out something yet to be pinpointed is wrong with her knees as well. She will be further evaluated by a vet to see if anything can be done, but it was likely she was born like that or it’s due to living in a tiny cage. She has adapted and needs a home with no small children due to her mobility issues. Despite Pixie's obstacles in life, she is the happiest little thing! 11/15/17 11:11 AM

  • Italian Greyhound

Annabelle and Tucker are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together. Annabelle can be shy at times and feels more confident with Tucker around. They both get along well with the other Iggys and cats in their foster home. They did fine with their foster mom’s 4 yr old granddaughter. Hello, Tucker here! I'm a cuddly little, 12 lb. thing, I still have lots of spunk for a senior, and I love to play with the other IGs in my foster home. One of my favorite things to do is run as fast as I can and chase everyone around the yard! I am a very happy boy, always wagging my tail, and following my foster mom around. I love attention, I always want to be petted and will gaze at you with my big black eyes to show you that I love you. I also love to cuddle on the couch and lay my head on your chest or tuck it under your chin. I get along well with the cats in my foster home. I am crate trained and will sleep in my kennel if you leave the door open, but I prefer to sleep in the big bed under the covers with my foster mom. My potty habits are spectacular! I learned to use the doggy door in 1 day. I know some basic commands like kennel, speak, go potty and sit, but I get very excited when I hear the treat jar and sometimes forget what the word sit means! I love to go in walks but pull a bit when excited. I am up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. Hi! I’m Annabelle, a sweet 11 lb angel! I enjoy sitting in your lap and being loved on. I have the most beautiful brown/hazel eyes and once you stare into them you will be hooked. You simply can’t help but fall in love with me and my quiet, gentle nature. I have my foster family wrapped around my dainty little paw! I LOVE to play with the kitties in my foster home as well as the other Iggys. I can often be found sunning myself in a chair out on the deck. My potty habits are excellent, and I enjoy running in and out of the doggy door by myself. I am crate trained and will sleep in the crate, but enjoy sleeping in the big bed with my foster mom. I enjoy walks but will pull a bit when excited. I am up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. 11/15/17 11:11 AM

Max is a biggy iggy with lots of love to share! This sweet boy is blind, likely due to progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), a genetic condition. He has mapped out his foster home’s house and yard with great skill, learned to navigate stairs, and gets on and off of furniture with no problems. Max will bump into things if his environment is not consistent and needs a person to be his eyes when walking him on leash outside of the home. Max’s favorite place to be is curled up in someone’s lap or snug right beside him. He won’t give kisses, but he will lay his head down on your chest in the sweetest way or put his head under your hand to let you know he wants more petting. He does have some separation anxiety and lets his feelings known about being left at home when his foster family is at work through barking, so could not be in an apartment or a home with shared walls, such as a condo or townhome. He stays in his crate when his foster family is at work and sleeps there quietly at night but would be thrilled to sleep in bed with his family. Max really enjoys playing with toys, especially soft squeaky toys. He’s even able to sniff out his favorite toy! He gets along great with the IGs in his foster home, but he needs a home without a young or overly playful dogs, as he is reactive to dogs that try to engage him in physical play since he cannot read their body language. Max has excellent potty habits when taken out regularly but will need a fenced yard to maintain those habits, as he likes to take his time. He enjoys wandering around the back yard and barking with neighboring dogs on occasion. He also enjoys a walk around the neighborhood. Max is definitely a Velcro dog and would love a family that can spend as much time playing with and loving on him as possible. He’s up to date on vaccinations, neutered, had a dental, and is on heartworm preventative. 11/15/17 11:11 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. 11/15/17 11:11 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. 11/15/17 11:11 AM
