Gunner- A three-year old Italian Greyhound mix in Tennessee
Gunner's family, who he has been with since puppyhood, is moving to a very cold climate. Due to Gunner's dislike of cold weather (displayed by his shivering) and his stubborness in not wanting to wear clothing such as sweaters and coats, his family feels that it is best to locate a new home for him, rather than subjecting him to exceptionally cold weather.
Gunner, whose dam is an Italian Greyhound and sire is likely to be a Miniature Pinscher, is three-years old and weighs eleven pounds. Gunner is housetrained to potty outside, will whine or bark to go out, and is accident-free in his new home. When it is sunny and warm out, he likes to be outside with his people. Gunner is crate-trained; is good with other dogs unless they are large, and has lived with a canine companion; and is good with children, as he has been around them his entire life - he has not had experience with cats. In addition to cold weather and large dogs, Gunner dislikes loud noises such as thunder and fireworks, and collars - he will, however, happily wear a harness. This guy could use some loose-leash training as he has a tendency to want to "walk his people." He also has a tendency to lick items, which could be addressed by his new owner.
Gunner has a good bit of energy, likes to play with his ball/tug rope or ice cubes, and will chase rabbits in the fenced yard. When not busy being active, Gunner loves to snuggle and will perch on your shoulder or cuddle on your chest.
If you are looking for a lap dog who also has energy, a small-sized watch dog, and a canine best-companion, please contact Italian Greyhound Place regarding Gunner. Additional photo here. (Listed 3/7/14)
Spencer - A seven-year old Italian Greyhound in New York
Spencer, who is eight-years old and weighs fourteen pounds, is a delightful boy in the care of Italian Greyhound Place. Primarily surrendered due to a lack of housetraining, Spencer is doing exceptionally well here. An adopter willing and able to provide consistency and supervision is desired, especially during inclement weather.
Spencer is very sweet and loving, responsive to requests, good with other dogs, friendly with people (does not tend to be timid), travels nicely in the car, and is crate trained. He is extremely good on-leash and enjoys walks and hikes. When initiating play with another dog, he will sometimes make little noises and barks from a play position. Although he will alert to someone at the door, he stops when requested to do so.
Please contact Italian Greyhound Place if you have an Italian Greyhound or Italian Greyhound mix that you would like to have listed.
