Adopted Dogs - Spring 2022

Welcome to Italian Greyhound Place Charlie and Roger!

Italian Greyhound / Chihuahuas playing

Charlie and Roger, ten-month-old Italian Greyhound/Chihuahuas in TX, were welcomed into the care of Italian Greyhound Place on 3/29/22 by their much-appreciated foster, a young retiree with lots of dog (including previous sighthound), experience.


In addition to their foster, Charlie and Roger have two other adults in the home, a canine companion, a fenced yard, and walks to enjoy (Charlie and Roger have decided walks aren’t so bad and have enjoyed a few walks around the neighborhood!).

A HUGE thanks to Charlie and Roger’s

foster and her family. These two really needed an immediate place to go and their foster has given them not only a “place,” but a fantastic place!

Italian Greyhound Place also thanks Charlie and Roger’s owner for working with Italian Greyhound Place and for her dedication in ensuring that Charlie and Roger would have a secure and happy future.

More will be posted as their foster becomes better acquainted with Charlie and Roger and they have their neutering appointment.

Italian Greyhound Place is pleased to have fostered Charlie and Roger, who were neutered while in foster care, and to have had them adopted by their incredible foster. These two dogs are loving, adorable, and fun, but also quite the handful – some things, such as the need for housetraining, was expected, but some were definite surprises, such as their speed and skill at digging. Their foster had to “put chicken wire along the fence and fill over it with soil – and the same in garden areas.” Her pre-Charlie and Roger photographs showed a beautiful yard. Post Charlie and Roger – lots of bare earth and holes! Her (and her husband’s) dedication and positive approach to working with Charlie and Roger, acceptance of their antics, amusing descriptions of them, and overall dedication are indicative of how fortunate these two were to be fostered and, now, adopted by their foster. When discussing adopting Charlie and Roger, their foster indicated, “Of course these boys have a forever home with me!” Charlie and Roger, now Red and Boo, have terrific people, a canine companion to add to their fun, a fenced yard (modified!), and lots of walks and adventures. Charlie and Roger were adopted on 6/8/22.

Charlie and Roger – Ten-month-old Italian Greyhound/Chihuahuas in TX

Foster Needed!

Charlie - an Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua



Updated Listing: The owner's situation has significantly changed and a fairly immediate foster is needed for Charlie and Roger (3/26/22)

Roger - An Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua
  • Charlie is eight pounds and Roger is 13.5 pounds

  • These two are good with dogs, cats (will sometimes chase them to play), and children

  • They are being house trained to potty outside. Although they are accident-free in their crate, they do have accidents in the house (they are leg-lifters and the owner uses belly bands when they have free access in the house)

  • Charlie and Roger are content to stay in a crate when left alone

  • They are not accustomed to leash-walking, so will need someone to acclimate them to that

  • Charlie and Roger are very sweet, loving, and cuddly. They tend to be very active and then relax together

  • Roger, the larger of the two, has a more outgoing personality, with Charlie tending to be more hesitant and shy

Italian Greyhound / Chihuahuas

Welcome to Italian Greyhound Place, Papi!


Papi, an almost six-year-old Italian Greyhound, was welcomed into the care of Italian Greyhound Place by his foster (with the intent to adopt) who had been on-file with Italian Greyhound Place and seemed to be the perfect match for him. A huge thanks to Papi’s foster for completing paperwork, reviewing/discussing Italian Greyhound Place documents, and traveling three hours each way to get Papi, all within days of being contacted regarding him.

Italian Greyhound Place would also like to thank Papi’s previous owners for working with Italian Greyhound

Place, for having him enter rescue with fantastic supplies and current veterinarian care, and for traveling to meet his foster. It is an honor to have assisted Papi’s previous owners who had intended to be his forever home, but made the extremely difficult decision to re-home him when their circumstances significantly changed.


Papi’s foster is breed experienced (had two Italian Greyhounds), has a small, high-energy dog (and was specifically interested in a high-energy Italian Greyhound), is retired (Papi was accustomed to having someone home with him), and, being a dog trainer, is very dog experienced! Papi, and his new canine companion, go to training classes with his new person and, according to his foster, the staff there “love him.”

Fortunately, Papi’s foster and his new canine companion are also enjoying him! He is doing very well, enjoys going to

training classes and for walks, and the two dogs are playing together. It is very likely that Papi has found his new home.

Italian Greyhound Place is pleased to have fostered Papi and to have had him adopted by his wonderful foster who was fostering with the intent to adopt. On Papi’s birthday, his foster indicated, “Today is Papi’s birthday and Paisley (her dog) and I talked it over and it is unanimous. We want to adopt!” Such fantastic news as Papi’s foster/adopter and Paisley are a perfect match for him. Papi was adopted on 5/4/2022.
