Karen (now Ivy)'s Story...

Karen is 4 years old, sweet girl with lots of love to give. She loves to sit on your lap and give kisses. She does good with the pee pad, but has not yet learned to poop on it. She struggles sometimes if the pee pad is too far away also. She doesn’t like going outside, but once she does she doesn’t mind it too much. She wears her sweater indoors as she appears to be cold. She will find any ray of sun and lay under it. Karen is a good eater and knows how to “sit” for treats. She would be perfect for someone looking for a companion as she loves all humans! She gets along with other dogs and doesn’t seem to be affected by her big foster brother (Greyhound). She definitely likes other iggys and will cuddle. Karen allows us to use the grinder on her nails with ease.  Karen needs a lot of patience with her potty training issues but when she finds her furever home she will be attached to her human parent(s) and never want to leave their side!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Karen (now Ivy), a Westbury 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 Westbury, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Westbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Westbury 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 Westbury 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 Westbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
