Lucy's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Lucy's Story...
Lucy is a very playful little girl around one year of age. She loves to run and play with the other dogs. She is ready to be adopted, and was spayed in mid-May. Lucy is believed to be an IG-Chihuahua mix, but we are not sure. Normally our rescue doesn't have mixes, but she came in at two weeks old, and we were told she was a pure-bred. This little girl weighs around 5 lbs. Lucy loves toys, and is doing pretty well with her potty habits. She will go outside, and has started to learn how to use potty pads also.

This little girl and her brother were born around Jan 20 before coming to our rescue. She is the larger of the two and very cute. Her coloring is all black except for a white patch on her chest. Already at her young age she wants to play a lot, so she will be a wild one. Currently she is being fostered in Lincoln, NE.

This little girl and 14 other dogs were part of a rescue effort between the Kearney NE Humane society, the Nebraska IG Rescue, and the State of Nebraska. The Nebraska IG Rescue ended up taking 11 of the 14 Italian Greyhounds, and 3 stayed with the Kearney Humane society. You can read more about at the following website.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Lincoln Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua for sale in Lincoln, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lincoln paves the way for another one to be saved.
