Ozzy's Story...

Ozzy is an 8 yr old (DOB 11/16/2006) IG, white with black patches.  Ozzy was turned into rescue by a breeder & did not have a lot of interaction with people before coming into rescue.  He is very shy with strangers and prefers to be in his kennel when company comes over.  He has learned to wag his tail when talked to and now enjoys being petted for short intervals and has learned how to jump up on the couch & beds.  He loves dogs of all sizes & his ideal home would have at least 1 other dog sibling.  He is also good with cats.  He is crate trained and can go 7 hours without having accidents. He sleeps on a dog bed on the floor at night.  He plays with stuffed toys when he doesn't think humans are watching and will carry them to his kennel.  Ozzy enjoys being outdoors and is an avid squirrel watcher, he walks well on a leash. **REQUIRES FENCED YARD**

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ozzy, 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.
