Harley's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Harley's Story...

Harley is a 2 year old Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua/Rat Terrier blend. He came from a shelter in Omaha, where he was surrendered due to being such an energetic guy.

Harley is currently in a foster home with several dogs as well as human children. He always wants to cuddle with his family members and loves to play ball. One of his favorite activities is wrestling with his best friend, a rottie mix. They politely take turns winning the wrestling matches! Harley does get a little uneasy when meeting strangers in public and does need a little more time to adjust to new people coming into the home. Harley takes direction very well and is very obedient. He is kennel trained and is very happy to go to his kennel whenever he is told. He would make a very loving companion to a family.

About Nebraska Italian Greyhound Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the local affiliate of the Italian Greyhound Club of America rescue. Please visit http://www.italiangreyhound.org/pages/500rescue.html for more information about IGCA Rescue.

Locally we are a group of around 10 volunteers who are in constant communication with other shelters and states. We are a group of iggy lovers who not only find loving homes for Italian Greyhounds, but also inform potential owners of the difficulties in addition to the benefits of owning IGs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show up at local adoption events or can frequently be seen visiting Petco at 48th and O street in Lincoln, or at various locations in Omaha. Visit our website at http://nebraskaigs.petfinder.org/ to see the list of upcoming events and booths we will be attending.

Our Adoption Process...

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. Rescue is an organization that receives IGs who have been turned in for many 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.

Prospective adopters are required to fill out an application, provide references and go through an 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 temperment 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 dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and on preventative, teeth cleaned if necessary and any other medical concerns addressed. Vet records are provided and we reveal as much of the dogs history, personality and health as is known to us.
