Sadie is a three-year-old fawn and white female who came into rescue with her mom, Katie. She was used by a backyard breeder until a year ago, when she was given away. She was recently lucky enough to land in rescue. Sadie was originally very wary with her foster mom, but has recently been accepting and appreciating attention and pets. She may take awhile to warm up to new people, so patience is a must. She needs a consistent person who is committed to earning her trust.
Sadie will come current on all vetting including dental cleaning while in rescue. She is being fostered in Sioux City, IA. Sadie's adoption fee is $275.
If you are interested in Sadie, but unfamiliar with the breed, PLEASE read through the extensive information available on http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/mn298.html' target='_blank'>our Petfinder page. You are welcome to

Rescue Group Info...
Italian Greyhound Rescue is an organization that receives Italian Greyhound puppies and adult dogs who have been turned in for various reasons with housebreaking issues and "not knowing the breed" being at the top. Italian Greyhounds are typically, very sensitive and 'needy', they want to connect to their owners and be part of their lives....if the dog is unhappy and misunderstood, the owner will also be unhappy.
We are dedicated to helping any and every Italian Greyhound that needs our assistance.
To outline our adoption program, we require a fenced yard in most cases, the dog must be an indoor pet and a member of the family and you must have time to give the dog the attention it requires and deserves.
Prospective adopters are required to fill out an application, provide references and go through a brief interview process, including a home visit.....the visit is simply a social call to meet the family and other pets and to see the home environment....all of this helps us match the right dog to your situation and needs as well as theirs. We always strive for successful, permanent placements and in assessing your family and home we are better able to determine if a particular dog will 'fit' into your life based on their temperament and personality, which is to your advantage.
We require a donation of $250 with each adoption and the adoptee must sign a simple adoption contract. These donations are returned to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Fund to provide medical care for future rescue dogs. All of our Italian Greyhounds (including the puppies) are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and on preventative, teeth cleaned if necessary and any other medical concerns addressed as determined by a veterinarian. Vet records are provided and we reveal as much of the dogs history, personality and health as is known to us.
We serve the states of ND, MN, SD, IA, MT, WI and others are considered.
