Vinnie - ADOPTED!

Vinnie is a sweet shy boy who loves to snuggle with his foster family.  He is playful and funny, and has a joy for life.  He is a typical Iggy with high energy and would do well in a fenced yard and another small dog to play with.  He walks well on a leash, crates well and his potty habits are excellent as long as his foster family makes sure he goes out to do his business.  Like most male dogs he will mark if left unattended or without a bellyband in new surroundings.  He does not ask to go out, so will need a schedule of potty breaks, and has shown no interest in what the doggie door is for. 

Vinnie is very head shy, but likes being petted and loved once he gets to know you.  He loves to sleep under the covers with his foster family and sleeps very soundly with no accidents.

My name is Molly, and I would LOVE to be your new BFF!

About me: I'm 7 years old and a pretty blue and white color.  I crate quietly at night for bedtime. I'm good with my potty habits.  I LOVE the doggy door in my foster home! I walk well on leash.  I have a row of scars on my left side and hip, from being hit by a car in my previous home.

I've been busy since I came into rescue. I'm what you would call a "Biggy Iggy" girl because I came in weighing 39.8 pounds.  Now am down to a much more sleek 29 pounds. I still have a few pounds to go, but am working diligently at that!

I love everyone - other small dogs, little humans and big humans, and I love to give kisses. I love the Iggies and Chinese Cresteds in my foster home - kissing them all the time!  Having said that, I probably would be best not left alone with cats. I love to CHASE, but I don't hurt them. Of course, if you ask the cats...

What I need in a home: Humans to love me but not spoil me with excess food. Another small dog or Iggy who loves to play and cuddle. A fenced yard. That is a necessity. I LOVE to run and run. People who don't mind a dog who 'talks' a lot. I have a lot to say, so I'll talk to you and the other dogs.

If you have room in your heart and home for me, please contact Kim at

Reggie and Sugar

Reggie and Sugar are a bonded pair of Italian Greyhounds who need to find a home together. They are 9 years old, very sweet, very good with their potty habits, and up to date on all vaccines and vetted.  If you have a place in your heart for them and can give them the perfect forever home, please contact Kim at


Tess is a gorgeous senior girl. She's a great girl and a puppy at heart. She loves to play and be petted! Tess is perfect on housetraining and is indoor and outdoor trained. She walks great on leash and has run of the house with no housetraining issues!  She is healthy and happy and recently had a dental. She is on thyroid medication (not uncommon in the breed) which is inexpensive. Tess gets along well with the dogs in her foster home but would be happy to be the queen of her castle too. She seems to prefer female dogs in her foster home but does live with several males also.   She  was turned in through no fault of her own.  Her owners went
to live in a nursing home.  If you are interest in Tess, please contact Kim at



Titan is a very special boy, very sweet, who wants nothing more than your love and affection, or a few extra cookies... He is a big boy. He came into rescue weighing 35.5 pounds, and is down to a very nicely shaped 21 pounds now. Please don't overlook this boy - he has tons of personality! He loves to play and loves to snuggle next to you on the couch or bed.

Titan is very good on a leash, is crate-trained, and good with cats and most other dogs. There are some dogs we have met when out and about that did not impress him, but he has been alright with other Italian Greyhounds, Whippets and Greyhounds. He has very good potty habits if taken outside (even in the cold) when he needs to go, but like many Iggies, if asked to wait too long, may not be able to do so.
