Avalon - A two-year old Italian Greyhound in New York
Avalon has been welcomed into the care of Italian Greyhound Place by her foster father, Ferol! The best news though is that this sweet, little girl has probably found her way into her forever home as, assuming that Avalon and Ferol's dog continue to acclimate positively, he plans to adopt her :-)
Also, good news for Ava is that she will receive diagnostic testing/imaging/biopsy (if necessary) for high liver enzyme levels, with a subsequent treatment and/or management plan being implemented.
Avalon has been adopted by her foster father, Ferol (and resident dog, Coco)!!! Such fantastic news for sweet Avalon.
This little girl is scheduled at Cornell University Hospital for Animals, Companion Animal Hospital for diagnosis and treatment/management of her liver condition and, hopefully, there will be good news for Avalon. Regardless, Ava has found her forever home :-)
Aldo - A nine-year old Italian Greyhound / Pug in New Jersey
Aldo is a nine-year old, twenty pound Italian Greyhound / Pug who would love an environment similar to the one he had prior to the arrival of children into his home. Although allowing some limited cuddling with one of the children, this little guy prefers to keep his distance from them; he is not at all aggressive! Aldo is also skittish with new adults, but once the person is known to him, he will seek their attention. Prior to Aldo’s current owners having children, Aldo received a good bit of attention and, according to one of the owners, “Would cuddle with my husband on the couch for hours.” Although his owners have tried to make him part of the family, Aldo does not seem like a real family member and does not currently receive much attention. When home alone, Aldo stays in his crate, but he also tends to go there on his own even when family is home.
Aldo is housetrained to potty outside (he will scratch at his crate to indicate that he has to "go,"), but does occasionally "mark" inside. He will go quite a while without marking, and then the behavior occurs (a belly band could be utilized while addressing this). His owner believes that the behavior is connected to the lack of attention given to Aldo.
Loose-leash training (which Italian Greyhound Place would be glad to provide information on) would be beneficial as Aldo tries to run ahead, only to be pulled back by the tight leash. He has never been around cats; barks at other dogs at first, but then calms down; leaves children alone, even if they attempt to play with him; and will bark at the doorbell or someone entering the house. If Aldo can see out of the window, traveling by car is fine.
Although more attention is desired for him, Aldo is not a demanding dog, tending to be active for a small portion of the day and relaxing for the remainder of it.
