Lil' Bit in Houston's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Lil' Bit in Houston's Story...
Hi, I’m Lil’Bit! I am a 6 year-old, 8-pound, sweet girl. I am a gorgeous tan with a white blaze on my chest.
I am a very loving girl and know some manners already. I know to stay back when the front door is opened and I know the words “out” and “no.” I like to jump around and play, especially with other gentle doggies. I love to drop my head on my mom’s chest when I am sitting on her lap to receive love and petting. We play “chase” with her hand under a blanket, acting like she is chasing me with it, and I love to play dodge. I follow my foster mom everywhere she goes, just in case she needs me.
I don’t like loud noises and am shy with a group of new people or doggies. I hide until I get a sense of the situation. If it is only one or two quiet people or dogs, I come out for pets and kisses, no problem.
I am up to date on all my vetting. I have a muscle issue that doesn’t require medical attention, but leads to a little trouble putting my front legs down. I just take some extra Omega3 each day. Because of this issue, I prefer not being confined in a crate and I do need a little help getting started walking sometimes. If I have to go down too many stairs or rush, I may do a nose dive and bump my chin on the ground—my foster mom calls it a “face plant,” but I don’t mind if you laugh. Probably carpet would be easier for me than the wood and tile floors at my foster house. I do use a doggie door, but it leads to steps, so I come in through it, but I don’t like going out, maybe if I had a ramp instead of steps it would be easier.
I’m working on housetraining, and I will use a pee pad if I can’t get outside. I’m also working on walking on a leash. My foster mom is so proud of me. I came into foster care with bad teeth, so most were removed. You should see me try to eat green beans off the floor with only my two top canine teeth and 2 other teeth. Again, I don’t mind if you laugh

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lil' Bit in Houston, a Argyle 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 Argyle, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Argyle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Argyle 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 Argyle 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 Argyle paves the way for another one to be saved.
