Thing 1's Story...
This is Thing 1!! We named the puppies Thing 1 and Thing 2 after the characters in the Dr. Suess book "The Cat in the Hat!".

Thing 1 is approximately 5 weeks old as of writing this. He will not be released for adoption until he is 4 months old and has been neutered and all his shots completed. Thing 1 is the smaller of the 2 puppies, and had a lung infection when he came into rescue's care. He has recovered, and is rapidly catching up to his big brother Thing 2. At this point it looks like his personality is going to be a busy one, as i had a terrible time getting a picture of him sitting still!

Update from foster mom -- 28 Jun 05 These are VERY high energy puppies and need to be in a home that will be able to address this issue. These are not low-maintenance, "cuddly snuggly" puppies...these are puppies that are always on maximum overdrive and they need to be in a home with a good activity level.

If you are interested in this or any other dog being fostered by IGCA Colorado Rescue, please contact our local Rescue Coordinator ( to start the adoption paperwork process

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thing 1, a Centinnial 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 Centinnial, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Centinnial.

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