Ruff Ruff! My name is Buddy
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male||ID#:||5615981|
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Buddy is so excited that he now has a chance to find a loving forever home! He was found stray in the country where he was likely dumped by his former owner. Despite this sad start, Buddy LOVES people and wants nothing more than to have a family to call his own.
Buddy will need an active family that has a house and a secure yard for him to run and play in. He is still very much a puppy who given the chance will shred your (junk) mail for you. BUT, he really has a deep desire to please his human companion and he has the brains to figure out what it is we want. You should see how he zooms around in a fit of joy when he receives praise! When it comes to earning a cookie, you've never seen a dog sit so straight and calm. All Buddy needs is a consistent family that will take him to puppy classes and give him lots of love and praise as he blossoms. Boy does he love LOVE!
Are you going to be the lucky one to be adopted by this sweetheart?

Rescue Group Info...
Rescue Our Mill Pups (ROMP) is a private rescue organization located in Chicago. We are a 100% no-kill, 100% volunteer, 100% foster, 100% donation based rescue group whose goal is to rescue as many otherwise 'discarded' dogs from puppy mills as possible, freeing them from the mill cycle and finding loving forever homes for each one. We also rescue dogs from kill shelters, those relinquished by their owners and strays.
No dog should spend its life living in a mill - especially not Italian Greyhounds who are among those who fare the worst under such conditions due to their soft, sweet dispositions and need to bond with their very own human companion. While our focus is Italian Greyhounds, you may see other breeds represented among our adoptable dogs from time to time simply because we could not leave them behind. While mill life is horrid, the dogs in those mills are not. They can be some of the sweetest, most loving dogs around. Please consider giving one a chance to live a normal, happy life.

**FOSTER** A ROMP RESCUE, fostering saves lives too
ROMP WEBSITE http://www.romprescue.com
We are a foster based rescue for which reason we do not have a central location. All pet meet and greets take place after adoption forms are completed so please fill out an adoption application if you are interested in one of our available pups. Upon completion, we will review and if it is a good fit, follow through with a reference check and setup a home visit for you to meet the pup!
Italian Greyhounds are not for everyone. Please do your research before making the decision to make one a part of your family. If you feel that an IG would complement your lifestyle and that you could provide your IG with the patience and love it deserves, see the application link below.
Once the adoption application is completed and submitted for consideration, we will contact you to discuss adoption options further (usually 5-10 days). References are checked and a home visit prior to adoption is required.
Adoption fees vary based on breed and age, and an adoption contract is required.
