Shelly's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shelly's Story...
Shelly is a very sweet, social, playful 4 month old puppy, who has a very unusual colour. She is Liver coloured. Shelly was recently spayed and had her last puppy shot. Ordinarily she would be ready for placement right away, but we are trying to build up some muscle strength and coordination in her before placement. This is help lessen the possibility of accidents causing injury. She is just is not physically fit enough. However we will be looking at applications for her once her assessment is done.

She is very good at sleeping in her crate, and is learning about housebreaking. She will not be fully housebroken upon placement and her new owner will have to take this into consideration. She will be a work progress because she is young. She likes other dogs, and toys, and LOVES to jump altho we are trying to keep her from doing this until she is a bit stronger. She loves to be in your lap but is not sure about being picked up. She can be very very squirmy. Because of her instability with her coordination, she is not recommended for a home with small children.

We will update Shelly's listing as she progresses to advise of when she will be available for placement.

If you are interested in this or any other dog being fostered by IGCA Rescue - Colorado, please contact our state Rescue Coordinator (Serena - saryna244@frii.com) to start the adoption paperwork process.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelly, a Centinnial Italian Greyhound puppy 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 puppy 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.
