What’s better then a great personality and chocolate??? Nothing! Meet Zip! Zip came to us from a high kill shelter. We suspect his owner left him there due to his energy level, they likely wanted a cute little pocket pet and Zip would rather trot alongside you then be carried. He is the most personably little chocolate pup you could ever meet. We are pretty sure he is part Italian Greyhound and part Terrier, he’s so quick and agile when playing around even though he’s tiny enough to scoop up and carry off. Zip loves to play with other dogs – he usually out runs them, we haven’t had him around cats but suspect he’d be fine with a little training, he is good with kids but better suited to a home with older kids 6yrs+. Zip is house trained and crate trained. He is always happy to make new friends where ever he goes. He is quite a lot when on the ground but settles right in to your arms or lap for a ton of TLC, if you sit down with him he tends to just launch himself on to you, roll over and nuzzle in to you, this guy is for sure a lover. He needs to work on basic commands and still tries to mouth when excited. He is working on the mouthing and tends to get the hint pretty quick with a firm no and ignoring him, he doesn’t bite hard but obviously his previous owner’s didn’t curb puppy mouthing early on. Zip loves to go for walks, play in the FENCED doggy parks and play with whatever toys are around. Being a typical pup he does have a fair amount of energy and though he can be quite the lap dog he needs a good run and play session first before he can chill out. He’d be great for an active family looking for a smaller canine buddy to tag along on family outings. He would be perfect for a home with kids old enough to play fetch and take him out for lots of walks. He’s super cute and unique looking (yes he’s really chocolate colored!) so your sure to get plenty of compliments on this boy. He’d be good on his own but would also make a great second dog. Zip is best suited to a house with a fenced yard.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zip, a Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA Italian Greyhound/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy from a breeder in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA 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 Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Italian Greyhound/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA paves the way for another one to be saved.
