Romeo - OC's Story...


My name is Romeo and I am looking for my very own Juliet. I am twelve years old and have been in rescue for over two years. I am handsome, friendly and healthy, except I am extremely allergic to grain; especially wheat. My foster mom along with my new doctor have figured out that as long as I don’t have any food or treats with grain in them I will be fine. The grain makes my eyes and nose itch so I scratch them which makes them sore and ulcerated. Because of the ulcerations I have some scaring and loss of pigmentation around my eyes and on my nose so I need to have sun block on my nose and medicine around my eyes if I am going to the beach or on a long walk. I am a good eater, I like to be petted and I like to sneak into my foster mom’s bed.

Please do not inquire about Romeo if you have children, even if your name is Juliet. Romeo is house broken to go outside using a dog door or he can use papers. Because of his severe grain allergy he must be on a grain-free, organic diet. If you are interested in added Romeo to your family please complete our Adoption Application and forward it to the IGCA Rescue Representative closest to you.

We are always willing to consider placing a dog out of state, but applicants are asked to apply to and work with us through their local IGCA Representative

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Romeo - OC, a Costa Mesa 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 Costa Mesa, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Costa Mesa.

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