Hello! My name is Eddie, but everyone calls me Ed. Are you attracted to well-mannered, easy going, older gentlemen who enjoy cozying up on the couch? Then I’m ready for our first date to see if we are a love match!
I am a fit senior fella who enjoys the outdoors and likes to play a little tug-of-war when I am feeling frisky. My eyesight and hearing aren’t what they used to be, but I am a very independent guy once I know my environment and all the family routines. The home where I am staying has a big backyard that I love to explore! I am housebroken and l politely ask if I can go outside. But if you are busy and miss my cue I might have an accident. I am 12 years old after all, so I gotta go when I gotta go! My foster Mom and Dad have been very impressed that I get right out there rain or shine, unlike my foster brothers and sisters who won’t touch a blade of wet grass!
Being a free spirit, I do not like being in a crate. If you are away I would be comfortable in a confined space with a comfy bed.
Hopefully, my new family is home regularly or has other furbabies for me to hang out with. I’m a social guy and prefer having friends and family around. I get along with most anyone (2 legged and 4 legged!) as long as they are respectful and remember that I am a senior who can’t always see or hear you approaching me.
Well that’s about it. I am 11 lbs of sweetness and love looking for my forever family. If you’d like to meet me, get in touch with TIGR and we’ll make a date!

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
