Tess is a beautiful, fawn and white, 13 year young Iggy girl.  She has lived with her owners for 13 years and has now come into rescue because her owners had to move into a nursing home. 
Tess is a puppy at heart and loves to play and be petted.  When she first came into rescue, she had a few seizures so she had a vet check, vaccinations, heartworm test, fecal test and a full blood panel.  The tests revealed that she has Hypo -thyroid so she is on a low dose thyroid medication 2 times a day. Being low on thyroid hormone can cause seizures but since being treated her seizures have stopped. Her thyroid medication is $40.00 for about three months.  The doctor did another bloodwork panel a month later and her thyroid levels were much better. She is now ready to get her dental so she will be ready for a new forever home. 

 Tess will love a home as only dog or one with other female dogs. She has been a little bossy with the males in her foster home, but they probably deserve it! She walks well on lead, but does not do well in a crate. She has never had an accident in her foster home and once in a great while she uses a potty pad at night.  If you are interested in this beautiful Iggy girl, please contact Kim at topironhorse2000@hotmail.com.


My name is Paolo which means "little" but, I am anything but!  I am what they call a "biggy iggy" because I weigh 23 lbs.  I do need to lose some weight, but I will never be petite! I lost my human awhile back and am looking for a new forever family!  I would like to have a sibling or two to play with.  Even though I am 8 years old and a little grey in the face I like to play, sometimes even by myself with a furry squeaky toy, I like them a lot!  I also love walks, I like to pull a little at first, but I am getting better on a leash!  However, My favorite thing to do is to take a naps, either in the sun or in my donut bed!   My foster Mom says I am a little skittish when people reach for me but after awhile I am not so scared.  I love meeting new people and other dogs too! I think I would do better in home with older children.  I don't mind my crate and I have really good potty habits!  I know the commands of sit and wait, and I am waiting on my new forever family to adopt me!  Contact Kim at topironhorse2000@hotmail.com if you are interested in Paolo

 Titan is a very special boy, very sweet and wants nothing more than your love and affection, or a few extra cookies... He is very a big boy, and is on a diet. He currently is down to 26 pounds, having come in to rescue at 35.5 pounds. But 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. He has very good potty habits if taken outside when he needs to go, but like many Iggies, if asked to wait too long, may not be able to do so.
Titan has a mild heart murmur, and has a slightly enlarged heart. No medication is required, and he should improve with some with weight loss. He just had his teeth cleaned and came through the surgery with no problems.

If you have room in your heart for Titan, please contact Kim at topironhorse2000@hotmail.com.


Blue is a 10 yo sweetheart of a boy who loves his foster family including humans, dogs and cats. Blue had a head trauma when he was a puppy, leaving him with very occasional seizures and is on medication he needs for the rest of his life. He has not had one in the weeks his foster family has had him to date. Even with having this trauma so early in life he is a very sweet and fun loving kid. Shy around strangers, Blue gets attached and warms up quickly. He has great potty habits now but did need a belly band the first week or so. He has a very expressive face and loves to hug and give love nips on your ears. It is the best feeling! He also loves to ride in cars and go to PetsMart. Blue needs to wear a harness for walking because he seems to be sensitive to collars with leashes. He will come with one or two harnesses.
