Minka in Austin Area's Story...
Hello-my name is Minka! I am an adorable little 6 year old girl that is packed with personality and spunk! My favorite things are playing and snuggling! I am SUPER cute and make my foster family smile and laugh with all the silly things I do.

I have a gorgeous black coat with white markings and barely tip the scales at 8#. But don’t let that fool you-I am BIG at heart…I will drag a stuffy that is larger than me all the way across the room and then poke you with it to start a game of ‘tug.’ While I enjoy some good play time, I also indulge in numerous iggy slumbers under my blankie or in a human lap. I have been awarded an A+ in the snuggling category. My tiny size allows me to hop right up and curl into a ball that you barely notice while sitting at the computer or watching TV.

My manners are spot on as well. I am crate trained, walk well on a leash with a harness, and have been very dependable on potty habits as long as you take me out on a schedule. I am also familiar with potty pads and well supervised dog doors. Although embarrassing, I should also mention that I was a little chunky when I first came to Rescue which can be a big problem for my tiny long legs. I was being free fed in my previous home and likely ate out of boredom which packed on some extra pounds. Now that I am on measured feedings twice a day I have slimmed right down to my optimal weight. My adopters will have to be very careful not to give into my oh-too-cute wishful stares while they are enjoying something yummy! Those little tidbits add up fast on a tiny frame.

I am familiar with children and don’t mind well behaved kids that are old enough to respect my small size. I have yet to meet a stranger-any lap will do as far as I am concerned-just be ready for some unavoidable love and a good game of ‘tug!’ I am fully vetted and ready for my forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Minka in Austin Area, 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.
