Consider an Italian Greyhound in need of a loving home.

A common misconception is that rescue dogs all come from bad homes or abusive situations. Prior examples of why our rescues were relinquished include not understanding the breed, death of an owner, or the owner beginning a new job. We will reveal as much history about each dog that is known (including medical records in most cases).

See information on the origin of some of our previous foster dogs.

We realize that rescue dogs are not right for every situation, and hope that you will contact us before purchasing an Italian Greyhound from a kennel. If you are not interested in rescued dogs, we would be happy to give you advice on how to find a reputable breeder or provide information or advice about owning the breed.

Please Note: States like Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Pennsylvania have many puppy mills that may not give adequate care to their animals. We do not support these mills or do we take extra dogs from mills. More information about puppy mills can be found on the following websites:
