I just know there's a lonely human out there in need of a sidekick, and I'm the perfect man for the job!  My name is Lou and I love being around my people....wherever you go, there I am!  I'm pretty easy-going, but I don't care much for large dogs or small people, so I would prefer a home with all grown-ups.   Another small, furry companion would be just fine, but I'd be ok as an only child too.  I must admit, I'm not very good with strangers....but once I'm told that we can be friends, I warm up pretty quickly.  I know how to potty outside, and generally don't cause much trouble at home.   With me around, you'll never have another dull moment because I love making my humans laugh.  :) Watch out...if you're standing idle, I'll jump up and fling myself into your arms, because you KNOW you want me!  :).  Do you have a great sense of humor and an empty space on the couch? If so, give me a ring!

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.
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 $300.00, which is tax deductible. For senior dogs (8 years or older) the donation fee is $200.00. Please complete all fields, and attach any additional sheet(s) if necessary.
