Gino - OC's Story...

Gino is a great, loving guy, about 8 or 9 years old. He was released to Rescue along with his “brother” Rico. Like Rico, 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 but most of all he just wants to be with someone who wants to be his new family. He would love to have someone home to hang out with him but he is adaptable and would be fine with another calm IG for a buddy. If you are looking for a sweet, “easy” perfect IG companion, Gino is the dog for you His vaccinations are up to date, he is neutered and he has had a full anesthetic dental. Gino 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

Gino - 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.
