Marcus's Story...

Here stands Marcus. Marcus Brave & Good. 

Found abandoned in a sticker and fire ant field. Scared and weak, he braved the pain. 

Then a guardian angel swooped him up and saved his life. 

Marcus, we believe, was a stud in a puppy mill.

He shows the horrors of mistreatment with the deep scars of constraints, harnesses, & belly bands.

Such abuse resulted in the loss of his fur.
So cruelly treated, he seemed surprised to receive a loving touch.

Marcus is blind, toothless and hard of hearing, yet he is aware of his surroundings. 
Intelligent and with quiet dignity he taught himself his paths.

Marcus endured much suffering, yet he never lost his gentleness and grace. 
So here stands Marcus. Marcus Brave & Good.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marcus, a Richardson 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 Richardson, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Richardson.

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