Dezi is the most precious, loving, well-mannered being that I?ve had since I started fostering. Since the day we picked him up he has shown us nothing but love and affection even through all his pokes, scrapes, pinches and not to mention doses of medications. He is 100% crate trained and LOVES going in his ?room? to cuddle up where he remains while I?m away from home. As far as I can tell (difficult with 7 doggies ? accidents happen and if you don?t see then you don?t know who did it) he is also housebroken. I have never witnessed him doing anything in the house, other than joining in on a coffee table chewing incident (which was ?gang related?, that he should not. When I get home he is so happy he barks and jumps and is so full of glee to see me. He gets along GREAT with the other dogs and also is happy to play on his own. He definitely loves to cuddle! I can not say enough GREYT things about him. I tell him often that he is perfect and ask him to rub off on all my kids?lol?I am not sure how he is around cats and children.

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for your interest in adopting an Italian Greyhound (IG) rescue. IG’s make wonderful companion pets and will give you many years of love and devotion. This application has been designed to evaluate potential adopters to ensure that each person who adopts an IG is not only aware of that responsibility, but also to address the compatibility of the home in which each IG is placed. All applicants will have there personal and vet references checked as well as a home visit performed before an adoption can take place.
Note: All potential adopters or applicants must be 21 years of age to adopt an Italian Greyhound from TIGR.
We have worked in IG adoption for many years and have seen many happy endings, and unfortunately we have also seen a few sad ones. We have only the best interest of the IG in mind. Before signing this agreement, please know that IG’s can live 12 to 15 years, making this a serious, long-term commitment. It is very traumatic for a dog to be returned by its family once it has settled into its new home, and pets should NEVER be considered dispensable. Furthermore, note that the IG is not for everyone. These dogs rely on us to place them into appropriate, loving, responsible homes. All adults in your household must agree to this adoption and sign the application.

There is a non-refundable adoption donation fee of $325.00, which is tax deductible for dogs 6 months of age to 3 years old, $300 for 4 yrs. to 8 yrs. and $275 for 8 + years old. Please complete all fields, and attach any additional sheet(s) if necessary.
The donation includes:
Vaccinations (DHPP & Rabies)
Heartworm and Fecal test
Dental cleaning and extractions if needed
A martingale collar, leash, and TIGR tag
