Speck in Houston's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Speck in Houston's Story...
Hi! Glad you peeked in at me...well, sort of -- you kinda scared me! Don't know what it is, maybe I got that spooky gene. My foster mom says she has had a couple of other IGs just like me. I don’t see them here so I think they must have found their own forever people and that must mean I will too.

I am crate trained...and I love my crate. I used to scoot all the way to the back, and make myself invisible so my foster mom got me a smaller crate with doors both top and sides (she is so crafty) and is training me to be sociable. She puts me on lead and together we face dark hallways, thresholds and oh my gosh – I’ve never seen so many huge doors. She praises me and gives me treats. I know we can do this.

I’m only 2 years old, about 12 pounds and 12” at the shoulder. Can you say potty trained? Yes, I can and do pretty well so far. Playing is good, mostly with the dogs right now, but I have played a little with the humans...especially those short ones...what are they called, kids? Yeah, that girl one is the best; she gives good scratches. I warm up to you after I get to you a bit better.

I would do best with a forever home that had lots of patience and gentle guidance to share with me as I work at growing up. Other dogs would be helpful in acclimating me to my new home, but a strong human pack leader would be needed. I am such a good boy, and once I get past most of my fear issues, I will make a wonderful companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Speck in Houston, a Argyle 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 Argyle, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Argyle.

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