Stitch's Story...
UPDATE: Stitch hasn't had an accident in the house in months, and seems to not mind larger dogs much. When he was at our playday, he was greeting people at the door and many people commented on the good looks of this boy. (He is one of my all-time favorite fosters too.) Stitch is a 2-year-old, seal and white, very playful IG with a very high drive to chase rodents such as squirrels, birds, rabbits, etc. He is always in motion and wants to play with other dogs. He is shy towards people until he gets to know them. Stitch is partially housetrained, but has been known to mark things to establish his territory. He loves to go for walks and is leash trained. He will whine (or yelp) in a kennel and has allergies to things such as pig ears, and some shots. Stitch gets along with non-aggressive children, and likes to cuddle. He really clings to female owners and would do best in a house with female IGs or as a single dog (as much as he likes to play). He likes to chase things (balls, play catch, etc.), needs an owner who will have patience to gain his trust and is active (walks, playtime, etc). He doesn't mind cold weather as much as other IGs and will tolerate some cold so he can explore his territory. He was given to rescue due to housetraining issues. He will only be adopted to a family with a fenced yard. Stitch weighs 15 lbs. Local adoptions and someone with IG experience is preferred. Stitch is located in Lincoln, NE.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stitch, 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.
