Rambo strikes me as a such a lovely gentleman, and he comports himself with the easy dignity of a Greyhound. However, as he has begun to settle in, he's starting showing a little bounce in his step, more like Fred Astaire than my original impression of him, Laurence Olivier. 

He loves walks and will surprise you with the pace he keeps, considering he's an older IG. Hah! He easily can outpace me. And, be warned, if he gets excited about something, he'll take off, dragging me with him--not ridiculously fast, just insistent. I think he would enjoy more walks on a regular basis than he is getting at my house.

I have been giving him a little extra food, since he always acts like he's still hungry. He LOVES the treats I make for them, peanut butter and bits of dog treats in a kong like toy.

Since living in his foster home, he has learned to go under the covers when we go to bed. Sometimes he even snuggles.

Rambo loves to lay out in the yard in catch some rays.  He also loves going to the dog park and wandering around smelling everything.

He is great in the car. He has never pooped or peed in the house. He has been nothing but a gentleman with my dogs--he's incredibly laid back, so kind and so sweet. He is more interested in running around with my IG than my IG is with him, so I'm sure he'll be great with other IGs.

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
