Maggie's Story...

Hi my name is Maggie, My foster mom calls me "magpie," although I don’t know why. I am at least 12 years old, we didn't really know my true age. I weigh in a full 9 lbs, not much more wet either.  I eat very soft food with water or some broth to help me since I don't have any teeth. I do have some cloudy eyes, but do not have any other known health issues.  I am a little shy so I tend to stay away from   people moving around and loud noises, I get along with pretty much all of my foster sisters. They are dogs big and small, but mom watches me with them so I don’t get hurt. I also live with a cat but she stays away from me and I stay away from her. I am around younger children too but I stay out of their way. I am not mean, nor I don’t growl or bark. I love to be held and cuddled and really love when my back is scratched.  House training is different for me now compared to where I used to live. Mom wants me to potty outside which I don’t understand why, although I do go outside and do my potty when taken there.  I just haven’t gotten the idea to ask to go out. I don’t mean to have accidents but it happens, so I need someone understanding of that too.  I used to live with a lot of dogs before, and that is why I am looking for a new home.  I prefer to get more attention for myself, and hope the many other dogs from my original home, who also went to foster homes, get all the attention they deserve too.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maggie, 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.
