Benito - OC's Story...


Benito means blessed in Italian; Bennie’s prayers were answered when he was Rescued. When he is adopted he will continue to “pay forward” his love and good luck. He arrived, underweight and very frightened but soon revealed his strong, loving, outgoing nature. Bennie is young, approx. 1 ½ to 2 years old and has a strong bold nature. He is very affectionate and very energetic, requiring a yard to run and romp in with another, active young dog. He loves to kiss and hug, and clean your ears. After his dinner, his favorite spot is in a lap, snoozing. Bennie is working on learning better social manners; he is a bit head strong so he will need a very experienced dog owner, preferably with Sight Hound experience. Bennie is a “jumper”; he could easily clear a six foot fence if he is bored or interested in whatever is going on over the fence. He would be as surprised as you would. Secure, over six foot fencing will be a security “must” for Bennie’s forever home. Are you ready to add this bundle of blessings to your life?

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

Benito - 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.
