Hello! My name is Minnie.

I am a very happy, mature, petite, blue fawn who is seeking a lap…errr… Forever Home with a human who has a lap. The lap is my favorite place to spend time. But arms or a blanket will do in a pinch should my human feel the need to get up and not require my assistance.

Some may say I am a micromanager, but really I just want to know what’s going on and approve of how it is being done thus the need to follow humans everywhere. I take my job seriously and I must maintain my standards you understand.

No slacker here. I am constantly on guard for flies, birds, or other creatures that might invade my space which is on a lap, blanket, or couch. I have a soft bark if that is possible and use it to warn of strangers.

I am an excellent stuffed toy ninja and will make sure none harm my human. The resident cat and I have an understanding so I don’t need to monitor her movements too much. She in turn stays out of my way.

I really am proud how my foster mom follows on leash and behaves so well in stores. I’ll gladly train her replacement so we can go places.

 

Highlights:

 

 8-10 yrs young

 8 lbs of beauty and grace

 Blue fawn with white markings

Excellent Companion and Personal Assistant

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:
Neuter/spay
Vaccinations (DHPP & Rabies)
Heartworm and Fecal test
Dental cleaning and extractions if needed
Microchipping
A martingale collar, leash, and TIGR tag
