Drifter's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Drifter's Story...
Drifter had a difficult life sometime in the past and was very fearful of people when he first came to rescue. He is working on his housetraining, and still scared of sudden movements. After 6-8 months of rehabilitaiton he has hair on his back, and some on his ears and tail, but still has a long ways to go. ***Update on Drifter - Drifter broke his leg, and after long consideration he was put to sleep due to his fear biting. Some dogs cannot overcome the abuse they have had in the past, and we know Drifter's life in rescue was the best year he ever had. He will be missed, but has taught us all a lesson in how cruel people can be.

This was mainly an Amish auction with consignments. The 'lady' who was selling the IG's was liquidating her kennels due to the fact that she had NO indoor shelter for these dogs!!!! They were kept outside!!!! Most likely this was not even their first winter by looking at the conditions of some of these kids. ( she probably lost to many last year) He was in a cage with 2 other IGs and was cowering and hiding as best he could in the back of the kennel. He looked like hell and due to that the bidding was not high on him, as I could not have afforded it. There were a lot of sick and unhealthy dogs there and a lot of the other breeds were going for free or next to nothing.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Drifter, a Lincoln 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 Lincoln, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Lincoln.

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