Duke's Story...

My name is Duke and I am a 15 year old male IG.  I am very sweet and loving, and get along with my entire family and four dogs (not all IG's).  I love to give kisses and prefer women to men just a little.  I am very active my age, but do have some hearing and sight loss though.  I know to go potty outside, however I keep a belly band on because I will have some accidents.  I have been neutered, microchipped and dental work done.  I was in a shelter in PA so I am a bit thin, but have been gaining weight since I have a great appetite.  Since I don't have any teeth I should be on canned soft food to make it easier to eat.

My foster home says 'I can not express enough how lovable this little man is, many kisses and lays his head on me all the time.  I love Duke and am hoping he will find a sweet home that will love him as much as I have.'

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, 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.
