Rico - SD's Story...

Rico is a wonderful, calm, loving five year old who came into Rescue because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He was loved and cherished which is obvious in his manners. He is well socialized, excellent in his potty habits and only wants to be loved. He is housetrained to take himself outside to potty; he uses a dog door, an open people door or will wait for you to take him outside. He likes to go for walks and to dog park but most of all he just wants to be with someone who wants to be his special person. He is very fond of men but is comfortable with everyone. He was raised with another calm, adult IG, Gino, so Rico will do best in a home without active children. He would love to have someone home to hang out with him. If you are retired or work from home and want the perfect companion, Rico is the man for you. His vaccinations are up to date, he is neutered and he has had a full anesthetic dental. Rico is in foster care in San Diego.

This dog is being fostered in San Diego. San Diego County residents who want to begin the process to adopt an IGCA Rescue dog, please write or go to to learn about the IGCA adoption process and receive an application. We are always willing to consider placing a dog out of the area, but applicants are asked to apply to and work with us through their local IGCA Rep.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rico - SD, 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.
