Taffy is a medium hairy hairless Chinese Crested who was surrendered to a shelter when her owners could no longer care for her.  We estimate her to be about 3 years old.

She has an extremely sweet personality and just wants to love her human and be loved by that person.  She enjoys the company of other dogs so she would do well in a home with another dog but she would do just as well as an only dog relishing all of her family's attention.  Taffy gets SO excited when it's treat time!  She is sure to entertain you every day.

Taffy's skin was neglected so her new family will need to continue to give her baths and regular grooming to bring her into condition.  She also has loose patellae (knee caps).  This is a common condition in toy dogs, unfortunately.  Some dogs require corrective surgery at some point in their lifetime while others can go their whole life without surgery.  For now, Taffy moves freely and is in no discomfort.  Hopefully, with proper exercise and diet she can avoid ever requiring surgery.

Taffy does well using potty pads and could be transitioned to outdoor pottying.

About ROMP Italian Greyhound Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue Our Mill Pups (ROMP) is a private rescue organization located in Chicago. We are a 100% no-kill, 100% volunteer run, 100% foster home based, 100% donation funded rescue group whose goal is to rescue as many otherwise 'discarded' dogs from puppy mills as possible, freeing them from the mill cycle and finding loving forever homes for each one. We also rescue dogs from kill shelters, those relinquished by their owners and strays.

No dog should spend its life living in a mill - especially not Italian Greyhounds who are among those who fare the worst under such conditions due to their soft, sweet dispositions and need to bond with their very own human companion. While our focus is Italian Greyhounds, you may see other breeds represented among our adoptable dogs from time to time simply because we could not leave them behind. While mill life is horrid, the dogs in those mills are not. They can be some of the sweetest, most loving dogs around. Please consider giving one a chance to live a normal, happy life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster based rescue for which reason we do not have a central location, all our pets are in the loving homes of our volunteer foster families. All pet meet and greets take place after adoption forms are completed so please fill out an adoption application if you are interested in one of our available pups. Upon completion, we will review and if it is a good fit, follow through with a reference check and setup a home visit for you to meet the pup, if approved! Adoption Application

Our Adoption Process...

Italian Greyhounds are not for everyone. Please do your research before making the decision to make one a part of your family. If you feel that an IG would complement your lifestyle and that you could provide your IG with the patience and love it deserves, see the application link: Adoption Application

Our adoption process consists of completing a questionnaire, reference checks, home visit, adoption contract and adoption fee (typically $250-350). Our rescues are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations upon adoption. If you have any other questions, see our adoption FAQ's
