Rocky's Story...

Rocky is a young, energetic IG puppy looking for a home with plenty of time to help him grow up into a well mannered dog.  Rocky loves playing with other dogs of all sizes. His new home should have at least 1 other young active dog to play with, he can get quite annoying to older dogs that want nothing to do with his rowdy, rough play.  He is an avid chewer, like most puppies, and needs good supervision to make sure he chews only his puppy toys.  His favorite toys are braided ropes, rubber kongs, deer antlers and chasing tennis balls sure is a lot of fun too.  Rocky loves sleeping under the covers with you at night and on the couch next to you by day, when he isn't playing of course.  Rocky loves kids but is a little too rambunctious for those under 5 years.  He can go from being a wild child to a cuddly, sleepy puppy in no time so he needs a household that can deal with his puppy playfulness.  Rocky is good in his crate and doesn't fuss much but hasn't figured out his house training yet.  His new owner will need to create a structured feeding and potty schedule and be very mindful of watching him for signs he needs to potty to ensure he picks up on housetraining.  He was surrendered to rescue because of his lack of housebreaking skills and his rambunctiousness was too much for the 3 year old in the home.  He is current on all vaccinations. neutered and on monthly heartworm preventative.  At 5 mos old he weighs 14lbs.  Rocky was born in November 2013.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Lincoln Italian Greyhound puppy 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 puppy 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.
