Sophia - A three-year old Italian Greyhound in New York
Sophia's person is moving to a a condominium where no pets are allowed and, therefore, Sophia is in need of a new home.
This blue (grey) girl is three-years old (born in September of 2011), weighs seventeen pounds, and has a moderate energy level. She is housetrained to potty outside (currently in a fenced yard) and only has occasional accidents. Sophia loves people, adults and children; only tends to bark when someone is at the door; travels nicely in the car; and, although crate trained, is not crated when left alone in the house.
If you would like to welcome a very affectionate Italian Greyhound girl to your home, please contact Italian Greyhound Place. (Listed 11/17/14)
Bugatti - An eight-year old Italian Greyhound inNew York
In his current home, Bugatti is crated quite a bit due to a lack of housetraining, and his owner is not home enough to let him out and spend time with him. Therefore, Bugatti is in need of a new home with someone able to be with him more than not, and with patience to work with him. When not crated, Bugatti currently wears a belly band.
This blue (grey) Italian Greyhound has been in the same home since puppyhood and is good with people, including children dogs, and cats - there is a ten-year old child in his current home. Bugatti is crate trained and stays in a crate when left alone; is "average" on leash and could benefit from loose-leash training (Italian Greyhound Place would be glad to provide information on this); and only barks when someone knocks on the door.
When indoors, Bugatti is very mellow and relaxes quietly, but when brought to an enclosed park or area to run, this guy knows he's an Italian Greyhound! Bugatti is super sweet.
If you are interested in providing Bugatti with love, care, and his new home, please contact Italian Greyhound Place. (Listed 11/15/14)
Lieutenant Dan - An almost three-year old Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua in California
Due to a move, work, and school, Lieutenant Dan's owner is not home enough to provide him with enough attention. A home with someone who is not gone long hours, who enjoys walking, and can be consistent with training is desired.
Lieutenant Dan, who will be three-years old in August, weighs eleven pounds. His energy level is high enough for playing and running, which he loves, and low enough for hours of cuddling. He is a sweet, silly boy who has some social anxiety when meeting new people. If an unknown person enters the house, Lt. Dan does best if he is kept on a leash and the person does not acknowledge him. Although a bit shy initially, Lt. Dan is good with other dogs. He absolutely loves to play with cats! This guy also enjoys traveling in the car.
House trained to potty outside, Lieutenant Dan tends to do best when on-leash, but will also potty in a fenced area. He has made great strides, but does tend to have accidents at the rate of approximately one per day. Since Lt. Dan is crate trained, he currently stays in a crate when left alone and that, along with consistency, is assisting him with house training. On walks, he will pull for a few minutes, but if his "walker" makes a "tsst" sound, he will stop the pulling. Lt. Dan saves his barking for knocks at the door and strange people entering the house.
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.
