Spike - OC's Story...

CLICK HERE TO READ OUR ADOPTION POLICIES BEFORE INQUIRING ON AN IG

Hi, my name is Spike but my foster mom calls me Mr. Handsome. I am 6 years old, tall, dark, handsome, with dark sultry eyes and a warm, calm. loving demeanor. I love being inside the house, snuggling on the couch and am the perfect one-on-one companion. I also like to go for runs and walks. Before I came into Rescue, I only had my sister IG as a friend and companion and we had to live outside. Then one day I guess we won the Lottery….. we each got a wonderful new home, called a foster home and a foster mom who loves us and is showing us what it is like to be an Italian Greyhound and not just a dog. We get hugs, kisses and petting, petting and more petting ( we are told an Italian Greyhound can’t ever get enough petting). I have learned I can go outside to potty, play or to lie in the sunshine, then come back into the house where I feel safe and loved; I actually have my own door. I would like my new forever home to be full of love and I need my own door so I can take myself outside to potty on the grass. If there was a small female IG to be my friend I wouldn’t mind sharing but if I could have my own human, all the time, that would be extra wonderful.

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

Spike - 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.
