Leo's Story...

Greetings! I am Leo.

My journey with TIGR began many months ago when I found myself in a local shelter and heartworm positive. My foster mom scooped me up and started heart worm treatment immediately. The treatment is complete and in a few months I will go back to the vet to make sure I am clear of those nasty buggers.

I can't remember my birth date but my best guess is I am young 8 years old with an attractive tan and white coat weighing in at a sleek 13lbs. My face looks a little like a lion. I guess that's why they call me Leo. I get along very well with other dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. If there is a lot of activity in the yard I like to police the play with my bark or give chase. Are you a foodie? I am too. I prefer to eat my meals alone out of my own bowl. My crate and house are kept clean because I am smart and know the best potty spots in the yard.

My favorite daily activity is snuggling in your arms or next to you and/or another iggy in bed. If you would like to meet me please fill out an application and contact TIGR.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo, 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.
