Matthew's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Matthew's Story...
Cross My Heart pulled Matthew from BJC Animal Control. This little guy is full of energy and lots of fun! He loves to run and play in the yard with the other dogs, and to snuggle on the couch with you. And, he LOVES to give kisses! Matthew is good with cats and some other dogs. He may be best placed in a home with no other dogs. (It's a bit of a trial and error with him.) He is working on being crate and house trained. He is very smart and very trainable - VERY food motivated! He needs a canine companion around his size or someone who will be dedicated to playing with him daily since his energy level is so high. He is approximately 20 lbs. and is full grown.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matthew, a Wytheville Italian Greyhound/Whippet dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Whippet for sale in Wytheville, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/Whippet dog from a breeder in Wytheville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wytheville 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 Wytheville 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/Whippet breeders who help with Italian Greyhound/Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wytheville paves the way for another one to be saved.
