Grumpy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Grumpy's Story...
Grumpy is one of 7 dogs that were confiscated as part of a cruelty/neglect case. We think Grumpy is 4 years old, but we really do not know. He is a very sweet natured boy who is a little on the quiet side. He would much rather sit and cuddle than play.
He would also do best in a home where he is either the only dog or had only a couple of companions. He is doing better at housebreaking, but will need continued work. Since he has been neutered he should soon learn to stop marking. He has learned that a crate is not a bad place and willingly goes in for mealtimes or for sleeping.
He does like to sleep in the bed with you as well. He tends to grumble in his sleep if you nudge him, so Grumpy seems to suit him as a name. I would not recommend Grumpy for a home with children under the age of 12, cats are OK.

If you are interested in this or any other dog being fostered by IGCA Rescue - Colorado, please contact our state Rescue Coordinator (Serena Galloway at to start the adoption paperwork process.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Centinnial 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 Centinnial 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 Italian Greyhound breeders who help with Italian Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Centinnial paves the way for another one to be saved.
