Harley's Info...

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

Harley's Story...

I am Harley, and you won't forget me.  I am a 2 year old Italian Greyhound mix who loves to play, run and bounce around like Tigger.  I was originally in a shelter in Omaha, and adopted then surrendered due to being such an energetic guy.

Since I am a young guy, you have to deal with the normal puppy issues such as:
* High Energy
* Learning Potty Training
* Stealing Things That Aren't Mine
* And, Other Things I Think About

I am all about having fun, get along with kids and other dogs too.  And, since I am an IG puppy and we have very fine bones, I have to be careful to not break a leg because it costs a lot to get fixed.  

I enjoy cuddling with my people and love to play with toys.  I am crate trained and will go to a kennel on command.  I am a very loving dog and do well sharing a kennel with a female kennel mate.

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.
