Izzy's Story...
Izzy is a sweet little girl who had a successful racing career and is now enjoying the sweet life. It took her a while to settle into her new surroundings, but she now knows the routine and has fit in quite nicely with my grey, Bowie and our two min-pin mixes.

While she does not like to go in the crate, she does just fine in it. She likes our family walks and does well on leash. She also enjoys running in the backyard and loves to shake, shake, shake her toys. In fact, she'll grab and shake pretty much anything made of fabric if it is left out - towels, tee-shirts and socks, for example. However, she is quick to drop it with just a little "sshh" to get her attention.

She does show some signs of anxiety when in "lone" situations. When all her humans leave the house, she lets out a quick, whiny bark to make sure we don't forget about her. She also prefers to be around the other dogs than to be by herself, whether inside or out. She will need another well-mannered dog and/or a human who will be with her most of the day and night.

Come see all of these beautiful, elegant, gentle companions at one of our meet and greets. Check our website for meet and greet info and to learn more about greyhounds as pets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Izzy, a Florence Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Florence, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Florence.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Florence already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Florence breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Greyhound breeders who help with Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Florence paves the way for another one to be saved.
